Paula has this blog series called The Monday Peeve where we can vent, rant and rave about things that piss us off.
This is my opinion. I have not felt this much animosity or anger against anyone for decades, and even that now pales into insignificance.
I did not watch it, did not want to watch it and did not want to hear about it.
I do not want to read about them, I do not feel sorry for them, and I have no time for them.
You could say I’m being hypocritical for voicing an opinion on something I haven’t seen regarding people I have never met (nor do I want to, EVER), but I’m allowed.
And as for the interviewer who once held my respect, that’s now gone out of the window.
We tuned in to the radio this morning and was swamped with snippets of yesterday’s transmission.
To me, this is the utmost in family betrayal, vindictiveness and spite because two disgruntled and privileged individuals did not get their own way.
WTF did she expect when she signed on? She was obviously a very poor choice for the job and cannot stand up to pressure (what’s that bit with the red carpet???) This was a life changing decision, not a poxy third rate TV role.
She has played every card in the book here trying to present herself as the injured party. And her child not being given a title? Tough. What did she want? King?? Get a dog. There are first generation grandchildren without titles and you don’t hear them moan.
No sense of duty. They both walked away, but expected to retain the perks of ‘the job’.
She obviously had no idea as to protocol, loyalty, and procedure. It went against the grain that she could not do what she wanted, when she wanted, and with whom she wanted.
She had the world at her feet, had been welcomed into one of the most prestigious families in the world, a prominent member of which gave her away at her wedding, which as it turns out was an action replay but with more trimmings and attention.
But it wasn’t enough.
Her ego blew it to smithereens, and her sycophantic spouse is no better. At least a former girlfriend had the sense to realise she would not pass muster if they married. Recognizing her own faults, she knew her limitations, and walked away.
Can you imagine what would happen if these two became Heads of State?
‘Off with their heads!’ comes to mind, and that is not a fairy tale.
As for our interviewer……. tread carefully. You will be dumped and bitched about if you step out of line and are no longer a platform for their whinging.
I sincerely hope these ‘revelations’ backfire on them.
They want a private life? Buy a bloody island and live there in isolation, or exile. You pick.
