Watch the video, I appear in the last scene.
I know this happened a while ago, back in the "dark ages", as in the time I spent without the internet at home, but I'm not sure how many of you saw it. I was alerted via a text message to it from Patty from Frockwriter, who had made a blog post about the story. I was out at the RMIT show at Melbourne Fashion Week at the time of getting the text saying I appeared in Wayne Cooper's TV shows pilot, and it wasn't very nice what was said about me. To say I was desperate to leave the parade and head back to my sisters house to watch it quick smart is an understatement. What had he said? What the hell was this all about?
It turns out Wayne isn't the one who actually says anything, it is his co-stars Tim Constantine and Elisabeth Shingleton. What they say as they apparently look towards me, talking about what I'm wearing is; “It’s magnificent - it’s like a cold glass of water after being out in the desert for years”.
As Frockwriter noted, it is snarky, and personally I think its rude of them to have used footage of me taken unbeknownst to me in this way.
Wayne Cooper is known in Australia for being "fatist", having said that Australian models are "porky" amongst other gaffes. He is also known as a wife beater, but that is a whole other story all together, or is it? Verbally bashing one women and physically another, is Wayne Cooper Australia's biggest misogynist?
