Photo Opportunity

Charley UcheaThis from Yahoo news this morning:

"Former Big Brother contestant Charley Uchea was threatened at gunpoint last night."

"Charley was attacked by four men who tried to carjack her Mercedes when she left nightclub Funky Buddha."

"A witness revealed that one man jumped on the bonnet of Charley's car while the others attacked her and her friend Sisi. The attackers then told the pair they were armed and would kill them if they didn't hand over the keys to the £35,000 car."

"Police escorted the 22 year old away in a police van and her car was taken to West End Central police station for further examination."

There you have it. Further proof that intelligence levels in this country are sinking to an all time low.

A man. A gun. And Charley "I'm a big BB mega star I am" Uchea.

The perfect opportunity and no one pulls the trigger.

Doh!

Well, as you know I am totally out of touch with celebrity culture, but going by the photo I think that if they had shot her, the bullet would just have bounced back.

Yes, I can't imagine her ever becoming pregnant for the same reason... ;-)

"£35,000 Mercedes"
I love it when Journos use terms like that,as if our jaws are supposed to drop to the ground at such a stratospheric sum of money.

"lives in a £2 million mansion in Mayfair " (If you can find some at that price please me know, I will buy them all)This is usualy applied to a divorce case or nondom tax exile.
Either the hacks who write for newspapers have low expectations or assume that they are writing for idiots.I go with both options.

Half the time they're writing about idiots...

Of all the important stuff going on in the world and this is news because.....?

Amanda, exactly! I wouldn't even call it a slow news days here so why anyone bothered to report it I don't know. Though in defense of the journos I only found this on-line and didn't see it broadcast on the TV.
