Q.... if Tony Abbott ever gets voted in as Prime Minister I will personally lead the fight to have you usurp him Oh Glorious Leader.

Trouble is... the way Australian politics have planned out recently (seriously? Newman?) I fear I may have to come good on that promise.

Sarah Jessica Parker's feet, where presumably the rest of her was also attending the New 42nd Street Gala to Honor Australia Council for the Arts at the New Victory Theater in New York City. [ don't ask ]

What, the woman's not perfect? Then she should be cast out!

If I had feet like that, I'd certainly not wear open shoes.

Well, some in the UK and Australia may know that a pair of radio hosts in Australia managed to, via very, very bad impersonations of the Queen and Prince Charles, get information about Katherine Middleton and her pregnancy. They regretted it almost immediately, but now it has backfired even more badly...

That poor woman. And all because of a stupid prank...

@Dotsie: There's more to her that's not perfect - and that's totally okay for me. I would love to have lots of not-so-perfect women on TV!
BUT: she played an annoying, shallow character, who is a terrible role model to girls all over the world, and earned a lot of money doing so, so I'll happily laugh about her ugly feet.
AND I tell the girls at school that that's how their feet will look like if they don't wear sensible shoes (they don't care much about how bad it is for joints and back yet).

:lol: OK, fair do. But I'm generally careful not to pick faults with peoples' appearance, lest it be pointed out that I should be staying at home with a bag on my head.

I wonder if human decency could ever be considered before ratings.

I have sympathy that their lives have been devastated by something like this, they can't have had any idea. That, or their lives were so bad to begin with, addiction feels like a step up.
