Nobody made you do this you stupid self obbssessed excuse for a women, the only person responsible for their weight gain is themselves...even I can admit that. You overate perpousfully for no other reason that no prove a point, how irresponsible and what a great example to your daughters.

It takes courage, someone commented to me once, to send your observations out into the ether of the blog. Anyone could read it, whether they know you in 'real life' or not, and judge you or criticize you or think you're very strange. Almost worse, perhaps, nobody will read it at all...

Labor Day Poll: Best Job in Walford?

With exception of Sonia who earned a nursing degree, there's a dearth of higher education, which is odd considering all the universities in real London, including the East End. Sure, in the early years, Michelle went to college, as did her well-schooled roommate Rachel.

Now, a man throwing a cake in the bin and walking out of a tent may not seem particularly momentous, but in the bunting-clad, cosy world of Great British Bake Off, this is big news. To us, this is our equivalent of Eric Cantona karate kicking a racist supporter at Selhurst Park in the mid-90s.

God: TV's Holy Grail?

In recent months, religion has thrust itself onto the national and international stage. When David Cameron proclaimed that Britain was a Christian country - in effect saying "we DO do God" - 55 public figures wrote to the Daily Telegraph accusing him of fostering alienation and division, against the background of turmoil in the Middle East.

How to Get Rich Dealing Modern Art and Vintage Furniture

If you have some collateral, that doesn't mean you shouldn't invest. And I may have a solution for you - dealing in modern art and vintage late twentieth-century furniture. You may think this is the reserve of the posh and rich. But, as a one-time working-class lad from East London, I can tell you it absolutely is not.

The most interesting thing in the world is people. And, talking about interesting, which we were, and people, which we are, there is a peculiar juxtaposition in two TV series currently on air.

It's our second week in New York and in this week's episode Alex has rather bravely/foolishly decided to rear his trademark quiff in The Big Apple and Binky's not happy about it... We decided to leave New York in style and had a final send off party in one of New York's coolest Speakeasy's, The Backroom Bar.

Five Reasons We Love the Great British Bake Off

You know how it goes. A contestant starts to take their flawlessly baked cake out of the oven, or triumphantly slide their painstakingly constructed choux swans onto a serving plate. Then, in a sudden moment of clumsiness, perfection turns to a mass of crumbs on the floor.

Worst Place to Be a Pilot

Matt Dearden

After 50 minutes or so flying, Hitadipa is in sight. It's located at the bottom of a narrow valley and due to its location, makes for a dramatic approach. It requires pilots to descend deep into the narrow valley in order to ensure they can land at the very beginning of what is a short and usually slippery grass airstrip.

Manly Richard (he's a BUILDER!) wins the technical thanks to Mary telling him his biscuits "have got a nice forking". Inexplicably, no-one collapses into giggles at this comment.

I was fresh-faced, 16 and in the closet when I logged onto Grindr for the first time. If my girlfriends were to be believed, all the best-looking men are gay - so surely a world of gorgeous, tanned hunks with god-like torsos were only a click away? But what did I find?

Supermarket chicken is making us sick, as the recent scandal over the spread of the potentially-deadly campylobacter bug revealed. But cheap poultry is also linked to poor conditions for some (mainly migrant) workers toiling in Britain's vast slaughterhouses and processing factories.

'Big Brother' 2014 - Week Eight Recap

Last week Big Brother claimed the public had the power. Aside from a couple of very trivial decisions that made very little impact to the show, it was probably the most underwhelming power trip this series has yet seen.

I feel under siege, everything feels like an emergency from the fear we're on the cusp of a World War to the fact I missed my dentist appointment and he's going to charge me for it. Why am I so strung out? I'm sure in the past I wasn't this panicked...

So what's the big deal, why do I and why should you care so much? Well to be honest, I can't go into much detail because I don't want to spoil even the smallest thing. Scandal was recommended to myself when just two episodes had aired.

If Olympians Like Rebecca Adlington Aren't Safe From Body Image Bullies, Who Is?

Poorna Bell | Posted 30.07.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Poorna Bell

There is no hierarchy when it comes to abuse around a woman's body image - whether you're a celebrity or the average woman on the street. But I find it utterly shocking that these Olympians are viewed as fair game for online abusers. Worse, that the abuse has affected a gold-medal athlete so badly, she may have altered how she looks to fit an image of what other people think she should look like.
