We hate to start sentences with ‘what is it with…’ but really, what is it with the people who go on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories telly show? He’s hardly the most hard-hitting journalist in the land, yet they all end up boo-hooing into their hankies and hankettes. Has it been written into the contract that each interviewed party must shed at least 5.9 tears to fulfil their duty as ‘vulnerable’ celebrity.
Katherine Jenkins (pictured above) is the latest in the line of silly bints to blub at soul-searching questions like, ‘So, how’s the album going?’ and ‘What’s it like being Welsh?’ Past moaning Minnies include Cilla Black off-of ‘Ta-ra chuck’ and Jordan off-of style guru. Yes, we expected more from her too.
So Piers might ask Richard Madeley what it’s like being married to Judith or ask Ulrika Jonsson if she’s a natural blonde, but would he ask Lisa Snowdon what George Clooney’s cock is like a la MeMeMe? *files nails smugly* or, better still, would he ask Kanye West what his dead mother would think a la Jay Leno? Now that, friends and lovers, is journalism.
