From today's column ............. "So, over dinner at Locanda Locatelli last week, our first meeting since the Rock Star was drunk in my flat, when I ordered him a taxi and he kept it waiting for 40 minutes, and he later told me he had had sex with another woman in my Heal’s four-poster bed, came this gem: ‘You look like Michael Jackson."

The Michael Jackson comment cracked me up but seriously, why would she still be with the Rock Star if he had done that? My girlfriend would kick me out if I had another woman in our (Not Heal's but Dreams) bed.

Somebody commented on the Mail page that even Robinson Crusoe after 20 years on a desert island wouldn't fancy Liz

But the chef came out and 'clocked her'
The chef, who presumably saw the ROCK STAR sitting at the table and decided to eye up his bird? Of course he did.

There is real talent here. It's a talent for cramming so many lies into so few words.

There's an interview with her in the Sunday Times Magazine, but they charge to see it online. It's a corker though - she says the RS is "more of a pen pal really" and that she hasn't seen him since March. Also that when she had her breasts 'removed' (they used to have been 'reduced' but who am I to argue?) the surgeon even 'exclaimed, "My goodness they are huge".' As breast reduction surgeons obviously would.

She makes me rather cross

Weird isn't it? In all the old pictures she posts of herself I've never noticed 'huge' breasts. She's never told us what her bra size was to back up the story has she?

I very much doubt they were ever huge, probably just too big too look good in the clothes she coveted which are made for stick insect, fashion house models where a B cup would probably be be classed as obscenely big!

I like Cathrin's idea of the chef giving his version of events here.

Fatsia,I wouldn't pay to read her interview,but curious if FRS is now reduced to pen pal status where he was proposing marriage not so long ago.

She goes for a meal and when he is in the loo,searches for his phone and wallet. Phone inspecting is obviously rehashed from Nirpal,but why would anyone ever want to look in someone's wallet.

I never believed she had giant breasts removed,or even that she had an eating disorder. Constantly watching her weight yes, but anorexia no.

It REALLY annoys me that she refers to her breast reduction as 'hacking them off' or 'having them removed'. I cannot think of a surgeon who would totally remove the healthy breasts of a young woman just to make her jackets hang better. (This is apart from women who are having elective mastectomies because of the breast cancer gene). Surely she had a reduction, like thousands of woman do - they don't call them removals, or hacking off?

Mammoplasty is one term to describe the cosmetic procedures.

The ST Mag piece is both fascinating and disturbing - fascinating as once more a story is changed (when all her cards were refused in the original piecem her agent bailed her out, no mention of tramping the streets all night and Jesus would we ever have heard the end of that ?), and disturbing because in the main photo she looks, quite frankly, demented in the strict medical sense. Trying for a Cathy and achieving something more akin to Sylvia Plath.

And aren't her feet HUGE ?

Nah- Plath was a good writer, and she scrubbed up well.

I reckon that photograph was pitching for Ophelia, winsomly pretty (haha) and trilling her prettily insane little ditties on the brink of the river of death, the edge of reason, blah blah, as though suicidal posturing was glamourous. .

Shame that she's 40 years too old for that role.

Mind you, if Ophelia had had Liz's gigantic flipper like feet, Hamlet would've ended very differently. She'd have just swum her way upstream.

Hi Fatsia, I thought I was left alone here,

Yes the Rhianna costumes invite rape comments were sick.
I wish Rhianna had not dignified her with a reply.

She has been trying to get Brick type notoriety for ages,hope this won't do it for her.
This is my theory on the matter, which I posted on another website:

"Liz Jones has a "controversial" new book out, and the Daily Fail are busily trying to promote their troll-in-chief. Jones is getting harder to promote these days, as her shock value is wearing off and people don't care as much any more. The Fail's website is the #1 news site in the world, and celebrities pay to be featured on their sidebar (the Kardashians are known to do this), which is why many of their showbiz articles lack substance. My theory is that this "feud" is a calculated set up: Liz Jones gets to be a troll and much-needed publicity, and Rihanna gets to be portrayed as a rebel to further her quasi-"bad gal" image. In return for personally responding to Jones' article, the Fail will have promised to feature Rihanna on their sidebar more often. Both women are known for petty arguing and feuding, so it looks realistic. It seemed so strange to me that Rihanna even knew of Jones' existence (she has well passed the peak of her infamy), let alone gave her relevance by bothering to write a retort, until I thought of this."

Also, Jones said that Rihanna had the "voice of an angel" and that she was a "self-made woman" (or something). This is laughably false - these are two huge points that Rihanna deserves criticism for - she's talentless, doesn't make her own music, has to objectify herself in order to sell her brand and just generally doesn't deserve to be put on a pedestal like she is. If Jones truly wanted to criticise Rihanna, she would have gone for the jugular right there. So the article is actually very flattering to Rihanna (bearing in mind she WANTS to be seen as "badass").

In my opinion it was probably not a good PR move on Rihanna's part. Her retort was embarrassing, it just made her look stupid, hysterical and immature. And by getting involved with someone of Jones' irrelevancy, she's dragging herself down to her level.

I'm still surprised though, that Jones' rape-apologist comment was allowed to be printed, even in the Fail. Also, I think Liz Jones knows what she's doing and is a professional troll (rather than truly mad), but I'm still shocked that a woman could use ignorance about rape in order to get herself notoriety. That's just a nasty thing to do.

I buy that rag of a newspaper, simply to laugh at the woman's fantastical scribblings. Worth every penny, wouldn't buy the book though. Utter nonsense

What an excellent post,thanks for that.

I knew the sidebar of shame was PR waffle but hadn't thought this article might be. Good points and food for thought.

.

Whenever I read anything by Jones (or indeed any of the gumph in the Daily Heil), I just think of that line 'a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing'. And yes, I shouldn't read it, but it's such bad fun

Sounds like this guy believes her drivel, "nothing contrived,cynical or planned about it." I would say all the lies and inconsistencies suggest otherwise.

In today's Wail, this vile bitch has set the bar at a new low:

The last highlighted paragraph explains why now, and not a few years ago. Read and be outraged. Read, and weep.

I couldn't even bring myself to read that latest outpouring. Talk about a headline that shouts 'now what is guaranteed to push guilty middle-class readers' buttons and provoke outrage/sympathy?'

It's beyond a joke .. haven't even read the article but to see a photo of her mother in bed in such a vulnerable position and her smug face emblazoned in the foreground... I think she will use anyone and anything for her ' journalistic' needs.
Media W***e. She's sold her soul.

At the moment I'm looking after my nearly 90 year old father. Who is deteriorating. And it's destroying me to see him "winding down". I gave up work when he first became ill 4 years ago, shortly after the death of my mother. Life has not been a bed of roses.

Sometimes I could scream about MY misery and MY unhappiness. But my pa is much more important than ME. It's soul-destroying to see my father going downhill. I've dealt with things that my father doesn't like me having to do - I'm still his little girl! - and, yes, sometimes I do resent it all. However, he's my father. I'm trying to make however long he has left is as comfortable and contented as possible. So he retains dignity. And knows that he's loved. And "goes gently into the night" with all these things.

Which is why I am not reading the article in today's DM.

Just unbelievable.Poor Mrs Jones to have a daughter like that.

Is the DM allowed to publish such photos of an elderly defenceless woman? Disgusting truly.

I always get upset when LJ goes on about her mum, but I never thought she would sink this low,and what about her siblings? Surely someone needs to put a stop to this. Mrs Jones obviously is in no position to grant consent.

If she is trying to advocate for euthanasia, I can think of a better candidate than Edna.

Revolting that someone could stoop so low in order to sell some shitty memoir.

I don't know much about this woman but that is a very honest article. I've been there and back and I know the guilt, sorrow and downright misery of having a parent in this position. Please don't comment unless you have had a similar experience.

Well I too am in a similar position and if one of my siblings published a photo like that of our mother, who cannot give her permission, I would take legal action against them and the care home for allowing such a gross invasion of privacy. Liz admits that she uses every part of her miserable life as column fodder, that's fine but when she involves innocent people, who can't object then that is beyond all decency. If you do have a year or two to find out more about Liz Jones then you will see how low she stoops regarding using real people in her life. Strangely she has had to make up a pretend rock star boyfriend to fill column inches now as he, at least, can't sue her.

Many of us have lost loved ones/elderly parents, but would you really publish their picture in a newspaper?

When my younger sister was dying of a brain tumour, she needed round the clock care and it was a lovely thing to do for her. As a beautiful woman of 38, she was so poorly at the end , I could never imagine humiliating her publicly that way.

LJ could have written a good piece about the role of carers. Except she has never been a carer has she?
She is playing the role for the day, just like she played the role of a homeless person or a circus performer. The woman makes me sick,
