The Devastation of Catherine

In his Guardian column Simon Jenkins reminds me that Catherine Zeta-Jones was 'devastated, shocked and appalled' by Hello! magazine's illicit photographs of her being fed wedding cake with a spoon by Michael Douglas. A degree of DSA is, of course, essential for any court action, but CZJ's DSA does seem a little selective. Long ago, I was at a party in New York, as were CZJ and MD. A young man passed his time by taking photographs of the CZJ bum. I looked over his shoulder, they were really rather good, though, of course, devastating, shocking and appalling. I heard of no subsequent legal action.

  1. I saw Michael Douglas walking in the grounds of Ham House recently. A small man in a flat cap - wouldn't have known who it was had not my daughter immediately identified him

    Sans CZJ alas - but with his little boy.

  2. I'm sure you'll find those images on his website, DevastatingShockingAndAppaling.com!

  3. Was she being force-fed? Doesn't she like cake?

  4. I think the critical issue, Neil, was that she was seen eating cake with a spoon. The horror. Only forks should be used.

    good thing MD didn't follow Sean Penn's lead with 1st wife Madonna and shove the wedding cake in his bride's face (hmm, a sign methinks, of divorce to come).

    sound like a bum rap to me.

  7. I've found my venue for Duck vs Appleyard. I had an ironclad contract with Richard Dawkins that no English blog would trivialize the "Science vs Religion" topic for personal psychological gain. I am demanding 50% of the proceeds from the Message Space adverts on BryanAppleyard.com for two years, a Man-hat, a one year's supply of Young's Special Ale, and 146 Pounds Sterling for devastation, shock, appallment, disabusement of affection, pre and post-traumatic stress, and severe aggravated pissitude. Plus an introduction to Posh Spice. Plus an autographed copy of "How to Live Forever or Die Trying".

    I may be persuaded to settle out of court for the Young's Special.

  8. Considering I'm barred from my local McDonalds (I've poor table manners apparently) that kind of thing is just way beyond my ken.

  9. You have me bang to rights, Duck, would a half of Youngs suffice?
