Glamour

Glamour...

And one short spell therein he read:
It had much of glamour might;
Could make a ladye seem a knight;
The cobwebs on a dungeon wall
Seem tapestry in lordly hall;
A nut-shell seem a gilded barge,
A sheeling seem a palace large,
And youth seem age, and age seem youth:
All was delusion, nought was truth.

                     
                         The lay of the last minstrel - by Sir Walter Scott

What were her words again? Oh yes, 'bringing a bit of glamour to the house.'
Looking like a barmaid that's won the lottery, Lauren Harries formerly known as James 34... yes 34! entering the Big Brother House. Mad as a March hare but hugely entertaining.

Smouldering!

  1. Big Brother... It's a bit like entering MJ's oubliette... Only with a group of losers...

    1. I should be sent to MJ's oubliette for scraping the bottom of the barrel with this post

  2. A full Bet Lynch tribute in action. I still remember him as a lad talking to Wogan and being on the telly quite a bit back then. Good luck to her.xx

    1. The above link shows James on the Wogan show talking about his 'father's' court case, with Frank Skinner wanting to punch his face in. Child prodigy my arse.

  3. I so love Lauren Harries ..... both now, and before. Particularly before, when "he" was an antiques expert at the age of 12. He had an encyclopaedic knowledge of objet d'art. I wonder what he would have made of my collection of over 35 antique vibrators.

    1. I can imagine him as a spotty youth, cooped up in his bedroom wearing his mother's clothes and frigging himself furiously with a carrot whilst looking at pictures of Hugh scully. I'm sure James would have been thrilled as I would be at your collection of antique vibrators, especially the wooden ones.

      I was thinking about signing up for some acting lessons at Lauren's studio. Her impression of a walrus in heat at 2:15 is second to none and worthy of a Bafta.

    2. Yes, that's a very vivid image: especially the 'frigging off' with a carrot.

      I do think the transformed Lauren is sweet, though. I watched Celebrity Big Brother and liked her a lot; she's got a lovely figure and looks attractive, but I especially liked her unique quotes "I'm like Margaret Thatcher, but beautiful".

      As for her acting on the link you provided, Lauren should have been offered a role in the epic, tragi-drivel-series Dallas or Dynasty.

    3. I would like to see a Lauren Harries theme park called Laurenland, with it's very own gift shop selling endless Lauren Harries merchandise.

    4. ... like the Lauren Harries glove puppet, antique birdbaths and antimacassars, that sort of thing.

  4. I think the second pic shows either a puppet or a dead person.

    1. A dead person brought to life by means of an electrical storm.

    2. Thanks to you Mago I've had this song ringing in my head all day, but not in your actual deutsch of course, that's just for your benefit.

    3. GAH - no! Please ... Thankfully I could stop it right after the first "aaaaaahhhh ..."

  5. Looks like Lauren has the "royal wave" down in case she wins!

    1. That's a common person's wave LX. Royalty wave by showing only the back of their hand, never the palm and moving their arm in a circular motion whilst keeping the hand still, the grovelling public love it.

  6. Did he also appear on Nationwide playing a musical instrument? Or am I muddling him with someone else...?

    1. You're muddling him with that woman who appeared on That's life playing the kitchen sink.

  7. No, I am wrong.... perhaps in the future she will become a famous cellist. She looks the type.

    1. I can imagine her with a huge cello between her legs or perhaps side saddle plucking at it.

  8. 34? I fear Lauren needs a refund from that Trust Me - I'm a Beauty Therpaist programme she did for Channel 5. Poor love. I remember that Wogan interview too, cringe-inducing TV. As is Big Brother... Louie Spence for the win! xxxx
