Oh my God, Juliet Angus! You single-handedly made me scream with discomfort while watching this week's Ladies of London. No, I'm not put off by your self-proclaimed 'honesty'; I, like most other people, are just totally freaked out by your total rudeness! You don't have to be a Brit to have manners, and getting up to leave a dinner party to have a cigarette is just a no-no! Add to that the fact that she played the part of spoiled toddler and refused to eat what was given to her, and you've upped the ante from sloppy to full-on deliberately gauche.
"You shame America!" I was maybe heard to shout in our small apartment, frightening not just the dog and the cats but also a house-guest visiting from Singapore. Hopefully she did not think that this comment was directed her way -- she is very polite. Unlike Juliet!
I actually gasped when her hostess announced what the food was going to be and she deemed the appropriate response to be throwing a hissy fit about "not eating Bambi." Grow up! Stay mum! Eat around it, you foolish fool! I don't agree with Caroline Stanbury about everything (I happen to think she and Caprice Bourret are totally just using all the other women as pawns), but she was right to point out that Juliet was a hypocrite for acting as deer-bearer after throwing a veritable snit-fit not so long ago about manners and etiquette.
I love that this show has brought out the WASP in me! I was incensed by Noelle Reno's table manners -- incensed, I say! Where did this ire come from? I'm not a lady. I am watching this while wearing neon pink running capris!
Still, I just don't get it. You're invited into this world that is not your own, don't you try to enjoy it and appreciate it and savor the experience rather than jamming your own bad attitude down everyone else's throat? No, Juliet, Lady Sandwich has not seen Ferris Bueller's Day Off -- and that's just fine! Just a grip.
Do you think Juliet was out of line?
