She seems to be the latest in a long line of "tabloid babes" who are celebrated for being thick. It's beyond depressing the way "nice but dim" types are championed in this country, and treated like something to aspire to.
Well, I do prefer "nice but dim" to clever and nasty. Though obviously clever and nice is the ideal combination. I do quite like Helen though; she is an idiot, but I don't see much harm in her.
