I'm sorry, but I have to get this off my chest. Two weeks now this annoying, boring, miserable woman has grated on my nerves whilst supposedly being a judge on one of my favourite programmes. If you are ONLY into taupe, how can you bloody judge anyone else for their colourfulness and creativity? She is a joke. I have never once seen her smile. On Dragons' Den she was miserable too. And the monotone claptrap that she comes out with. She just doesn't make sense on the design programme. The other judge just agrees with her, probably not understanding a word she has said but too polite to ask her what the heck she is talking about. Someone on MN said that she is the Emperors New Clothes, and I agree. No one cares for her lack of imagination but don't want to say in case they are the ones looking foolish.
On looking at her designs online, I couldn't work out if they were took in black and white or sepia as they were so bland they looked like ditchwater. Maybe an odd coloured cushion in one or two of the rooms viewed, nothing more. No personality, no character, no charm.
Other than all that, I like the woman.
Stepdaughter - rude and nosy
New gran - can I be involved?
Family conflict - what to do?
