So there I was watching it the other night when they had an 'intruders' special and one of the new housemates was this rough voiced, loud mouthed 39 year old brunette called Perry. At first I said to Ed - god what a pain in the arse she is, haven't we all known someone like that? Then as I watched her a bit longer I said....I think I know her.......and then it dawned on me. Perry used to own the beauty salon I used to get my legs waxed at!
Down at Perry's Beautyworks it used to be all go, the typical suburban salon. Italian chicks sweating under hairdyers that were blowdying unruly hair straight, other chicks in tight jeans and platforms sneaking a quick ciggie out the door whilst waving long manicured nails dry, girls under clouds of hairspray as they got 'up do's' for weddings while out the back poor unfortunates like me had hot wax ripped off their legs whilst being entertained by the motormouth that was Perry. She really was a laugh a minute and I remember the day she told me she was selling the business to go off to persue real estate she gave me a big hug and shouted out "take care Katie" because of course Perry just decided to call me Katie - even though I've always been a Kate.
It is quite weird and voyeuristic watching someone you know in the BB house - so far Perry has come across as a bit of a pain in the arse when in real life she is very much larger than life but also a very nice person. Will be fun to see her stir things up and to be honest considering the rest of the housemates are self obsessed, dopey little 20 somethings it would be pretty funny to see her win. Go Perry!
