She was a pretty smart cookie.
With photo-shoots, usually the magazine would pay for them and therefore they owned the photos and would then also make a lot of money by selling them on to other publications. Abi would pay for her own shoots and sell them to the magazines, thus owning the copyright.
Yup.. very smart cookie and a lovely woman from what I saw of her on TV etc. Yes she may have used the John Leslie thing to launch herself but i've seen people do worse.
