Erm, I'm no fan of Ms Black but that article seems like a complete stitch up to me. The journo doesn't come out of it very professionally either imo.
Oh I don't know. I think it's probably all true.
I can imagine Our Cilla being just like that in real life. Crew of hangers on to laugh at her 'jokes', and just generally being an evil, nasty, cutting, ill-tempered old baggage.
My final question is, if you hadn't been Cilla, what would you have been? 'A hairdresser,' she replies. Oh - what should I do with my hair, Cilla? ' Whatever you want,' she says, again in the stage voice which makes me her straight woman; the gang laugh like fools.
Perfectly reasonable question and she gives a snotty answer. Nasty woman.
