She really has done well, and's now a shadow of her former self. She looks pretty here as well.

Why are his "friends" so gullible then? Are THEY like it, or do they creep to such people, thinking they're "in" with someone special? If they know him well, they're not very good judges of character are they?

His affiliations with js and Broadmoor make it a hundred times worse,


Anyway, two of my Brothers think I,m nuts to be reading Pauline's autobiography!
I like her a lot,

Nothing wrong in reading her autobiography if that's the sort of stuff you like.

How do you know she wasn't "done", with the help of a gastric band, slimming pills, etc?

I'm not disputing it, but like Dawn French, who says she lost 100lb so that she could have keyhole surgery to perform a hysterectomy after a cancer scare, Pauline's version's been questioned. It's very difficult for someone as large as they were to lose so much weight and not be left with sagging skin. I know someone who lost 13st, with hospital help, and she looked great, but she needed an operation and a tummy tuck, which she didn't have. More recently, a close friend of mine's lost 7.5 st. since last September, but she, too, has hanging skin. You can tone up muscle, but stretched skin's another matter.

No idea, but it's a possibility. Not many stars like to admit to cheating. It's the same as those who deny other surgery and Botox. If they're going to have it, why don't they just say so? You can usually tell anyway.

Fair enough. It'd be nice to think that she's managed what thousands of other women haven't been able to. Then they all come out with their books about diet and nutrition, and it STILL doesn't help the vast majority, so good luck to her if she's been strict with herself.
