Author Kathy Lette Using Gordan Ramsay’s Philandering To Promote New Book.
Popular author Kathy Lette has been opportunistically using the reality TV chef’s philandering on his wife Tania to promote her book. She has sent her book To Love Honour and Betray (Til Divorce Us Do Part).

And has said Lette said she believed Tana Ramsay was handling the crisis the wrong way.
“I don’t think she should be doing that whole standing-by-my-man routine,” Lette said.
“When you have made your entire fortune from perpetuating the myth of being the ultimate family man … it’s hypocrisy.”

Ladette To Lady – It Looked Like The Producers Got It Right.

-

When Australia buys the rights to an overseas reality TV show you wonder sometimes if we can get the casting right or if we will have enough ‘talent’ in that specific area.

However there was never any doubt that there would be enough slappers in Oz to ensure a season of Ladette To Lady.

The show based on the english original is about turning slappers or skanks into ladies. The ladettes usually have issues with alcohol, boys or have a potty mouth or all of the above.

Anyway the Ladettes from Australia apparently caused a ruckus on the flight from Australia to Newcastle, England and wouldn’t Channel 9 be loving the publicity they are generating. Or they planted the story themselves.

The story in the SMH says:

“They[the ladettes] were loud and obnoxious, shrieking and cackling in everybody’s faces. They were skipping up and down the aisles. One elderly lady was so upset by their behaviour, she burst into tears.”

The girls are now at Eggleston Hall being turned into ladies. The show will air in 2009.

Aussie Version Of Ladette To Lady

Clearly I have been hiding under a rock as I have just found out there is an Australian series of the Ladette to Lady being worked on.

The British version of the show has been extremely popular here. The premise of the show is turning Ladettes (slappers) into Lady’s (rather dull young women) with one being eliminated each week. Expect to see a cameo by Jane Ferguson, Sarah’s sister, at some stage.

The Channel 9 website has pictures of some of the Australian applicants here.
