I heard that Paul hate her and hasn't spoken to her for years.
Interestingly it was John Lennon who introduced Cilla to Epstein and persuaded him to sign her, and not McCartney.

It's a very good point. Anyone who has horrible close friends is invariably a horrible person themselves (otherwise they would be repulsed by the behaviour of their mates and would want nothing to do with them).
And apparently Dale 'The Orange' Winton is pals with O'Grady too! And Dale seems to me to be as genuine as a 35 pence piece.

Well John Lennon wasn't the 'working class hero' everyone made him out to be either. As I said before ... I'm not THAT fond of McCartney - but in their partnership (apart from just one or two songs) it was McCartney's that were my favourites.

In fact - the best thing about John Lennon was Yoko Ono! She's done more for Liverpool than Lennon ever did.

I heard that Dale and Paul are both friends of Cilla but not of each other and they go on holiday with each other but don't get on at all.

I remember coming across a great website where airline staff were listing all the rudest celebs and nicest celebs they had ever dealt with on their flights... it really as a mine of great gossip !!!

At the top of the list for rudest cowbag ever born..... was Cilla. No one had a decent word to say about her. The most obnoxious full of herself rude bint anyone had ever come across.
That cabin crew forum is here http://www.pprune.org/cabin-crew/300...st-celebs.html They really do seem to hate her..

She must be aware of how much they despise her as (unless my memory truly is going to pot) I think she tried to put BA Cabin crew into her 'Room 101'.

Lennon always seemed quite moody and cantankerous (though he did at least have a dry sense of humour).

I get the impression that Cilla's 'mates' are all of the shallow and vacuous variety, just like herself.

That was probably an act of revenge on her part.

True - but not as dry as George (always my favourite Beatle).

No words needed other than 'Agreed'.

A friend of mine has done charity work and says that Barbara Windsor is not very nice at all.
On the other hand, June Brown helped with their charity work and was absolutely fabulous.
It's interesting how the same names keep coming up on these threads. I think with Barabra Windsor it depends on what mood she's in on the day, but the likes of Lulu, Bruce Forsyth, Jim Davidson and Antohny Cotton also get mentioned a lot as being up themselves.

My dad went to school with Cilla and said she was up herself then... It appears she never changed

I know this is the Daily Wail, but it does tie in with the very many stories that float around about Ms Black

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.

I have to agree with you having read it..the writer had no intention of liking her.also why would Cilla run in and hug a complete stranger??

Much as I can't abide Cilla, I also agree. Seems like the journalist definitely had preconceptions. However, she might have felt so uncomfortable with Cilla and her entourage that she gave it a bit more welly than she would have done had the encounter been more amicable both ways.

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.

ETA

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.

Didn't she appear on Girls Aloud's Night in when the girls had their own TV programme and did a sketch? I don't remember hearing any negative stories about her from them,there might have been though!

Wow,she sounds like a total diva and cow!

I must say I do like hearing all these Cilla stories, I must say, I don't like the woman anyway, she's talentless, fake, hideously ugly, her singing voice was more akin to a parrot crossed with a pigeon and that put-on Scouse accent and the miming of the "Surprise, Surprise" theme back in the 90's was enough to make anyone sick. I've heard all the stories about her walking down the street shouting "No autographs" in that posh Home Counties accent that appears when the cameras are off, well if that was me, I'd simply say, "Do you think I want your autograph anyway?, you ginger beaver-faced old bitch!"

It looks like the journalist went into the encounter with a hostile agenda (perhaps she had heard all the rumours). I don't quite believe her when she says she expected to like Cilla.

You sound just like a Badger, that's very, very angry.

It spoke volumes to me when Ricky Tomlinson allegedly said that he had no time for her. I can't find the link so I better put "allegedly in
