I have a lot of time for this woman. Now if you’re about to sit there and say “oh Stephen she’s going on TV talking about her woes – most people would just keep it to themselves and get on with it!”, you haven’t see the online ALMOST DAILY ‘news’ stories that multiple online newspapers are running about her. Fact is she’s been hounded and hounded and hounded for updates. This is not (as yes it sometimes is) some “oh I’m so BRAVE I’m going to go on the telly to talk to an uninterested world about “My Struggle (c)”. If it wasn’t her it was almost daily reporting on Ben Shephard giving a fucking update on the condition of her coma-induced husband.
I’ve also spotted this woman doesn’t actually live in some swanky mansion she lives in semi-detached house! Okay yes it’s a very nice semi-detached house but it’s not exactly a bespoke Beckhamingham Palace type deal. It has an average sized garden out the back. And what was Kate doing every Thursday? Moping around ‘being strong’ and telling “my story”? She was outside her garden gate joining the “clap for carers” thing with her 2 children!
She really does seem like the real deal to me. Kindness minus the “I’m actually a self absorbed twat”.
