About to be overwhelmed by the inevitable

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 30 - 2011

So, the news has broken.  Hold the front page.  Chezza’s got a noo doo.

I’m bracing myself for the inevitable flurry of press releases for blonde hair dyes, root touch ups, tanning products that suit blondes, shampoo for fair hair, dog biscuits for dogs with owners who have golden manes… you name it, they’ll be an angle for it.

Then will come the scrutiny… ‘is it really blonde?’.  We’ll have blonde experts on morning telly firmly assuring the nation that what we’re witnessing is really caramel and not true blonde at all.  Then the cynicism as people wonder what new hair products L’oreal are trying to flog off this ‘momentous’ shift in the universe.

I just want to let it be known that I couldn’t give a flying chuff.  As you were.

    You got her head/body ratio right. OH NO SHE DIDN’T!

    It’s not blonde, but I like the colour. Are we really supposed to believe that she did that at home with a L’Oreal dye? You don’t slap a honey coloured dye on top of dark brown/red hair and come out with that. It’s so misleading.

    Lol’ing @ The image caption.

    I can’t help but think she’s done it because Trashley was spotted chatting up some girl in America who happened to be blonde, and (I think) allll the ladies he cheated with were blonde too.

    Chezza, get a grip, you’re lovely as you are and if Capt’n C*ckwanderer can’t see it, his loss.

    Oops, my first comment seems to have been eaten by the blog gremlins.
