Paul O’Grady Is A Nosey So And So…

Digital Spy
Paul O’Grady: ‘I’m a nosey so-and-so’
Wednesday, March 30 2011, 11:17am EDT
By Ryan Love, Entertainment Reporter

Paul O’Grady has admitted that he enjoys doing his chatshow because he is a “nosey so-and-so”.

The presenter will return for a previously-confirmed second series of ITV show Paul O’Grady Live on Friday, April 15.

“The reason I love doing the show so much is because I’m a nosey so-and-so,” he said. “It’s always a joy to meet someone you’ve always really wanted to meet and you’re thinking, ‘Ooh, I’m dying to chat to this one.’ Read More

This Is All I Ask….

Mister D:

Ladies and gentlemen, I lay before you bare…well, baring my soul on behalf of Bootleg Betty. Don’t worry, she’s not going anywhere, but I could use your help. As many of you know, I’ve been on disability (I’ll leave it to the gossip mill to figure out why 🙂 ) for the last two years and am on an extremely limited income.

All I want to ask is that for those who use Amazon, please use the search engine on Bootleg Betty to order anything. I’m an affiliate, so I get a certain percentage on any product you buy on the Bootleg Betty site. It’s a very small percentage which comes out to pennies if you buy CD’s, DVD’s, or Books. But those pennies add up over time and could help defray some of the costs of running Bootleg Betty – hosting fees, different subscriptions for articles, photos that aren’t watermarked, the little bells and whistles, and manhours. While I probably won’t make back what I put in, it surely would help. (The search engines are on the right hand side, one towards the top and another about halfway down.) Read More
