The debate continues to rage around the world as to whether Nigella Lawson’s reputation has been damaged to the extent where it will directly affect her career. I for one doubt very much it will do because from my experience working in women’s magazines, women only love other women more when they see gorgeous celebrities fall from grace because it makes them more human. It’s a relief to know that they don’t really have it all so we can stop judging ourselves on what part of Domestic Goddess we haven’t nailed for ourselves?
What I’m shaking my head more about than Nigella getting outed for doing cocaine, which I might add, show me a celebrity chef, minus say Maggie Beers that hasn’t had a line or two, I mean please, is what the other famous British TV glamour girl Trinny Woodall is doing with Nigella’s ex? I get he’s apparently cashed up and all that but this guy is no catch!
Trinny is a woman made famous by helping to empower women, has taken up with a man, who anyone with an ounce of intuition can see is a serious piece of work. A man who is still seemingly hell bent on making his ex wife feel as disempowered as humanly possible as he continues to discredit her in the media by accusing her of not only doing drugs but doing them around her kids.
He’s also just come out and shared that he and Nigella, according to him anyway, did in fact take up a relationship before her ex husband was dead. Whether they did or they didn’t for what reason other than sheer viciousness and chronic revenge would he think it necessary to put that private detail out there when no doubt there would be many, many details and emotions that need to accompany such a story to ever truly understanding that time in their lives? And it’s none of our business to judge.
So how does Trinny, the expert in what is and isn’t flattering, not see how unflattering her new accessory, Charles Saatchi looks on her right now? He’s worse than a cropped, wide leg, elastic waste pair of pants in my opinion. How on earth did this bloke, publicly embroiled in one of the nastiest celebrity related divorce battles of all time even get her to go on a date? Even a quick coffee whilst constantly checking your phone?
And what a fabulous co-incidence for Charles Saatchi that he’s just happened to nab himself yet another famous woman in his mission to show his ex who’s really the boss… if grabbing her around the throat at a public restaurant wasn’t enough.
I wonder also for Trinny, how romantic she feels her new beau really is given he’s wining and dining her at the very same restaurant where all this throat grabbing mayhem began? I’m sure the food must be delightful but he couldn’t manage to find a venue with just a few less memories?
It’s clear Charles Saatchi likes famous women, and women with a few other shared traits. Trinny has also had her issues with cocaine abuse and alcohol dependency. By her own admission her battle with addictions in this area go way, way beyond Nigella’s, so it’s curious that her new boyfriend who is apparently so horrified of women who have children and also do drugs, why is it he’s ok to take another one on with a similar history?
Both women have reported cocaine issues and both have gone on record with pretty stupid evaluations of why they took cocaine, by saying it gave them confidence, and in Nigella’s case, she said it ‘made an unbearable situation, bearable.’ In my experience it just makes you a boring loud mouth that has no idea when their stories are supposed to end so they quite often don’t. It’s a puff up your chest party drug that allows you to indulge the narcissist within you.
Speaking of narcissists, the full-blown variety, I find they often like to pray on vulnerable women. And a narcissist can smell insecurity a thousand miles away.
