What started out as a straightforward fraud case, turned into a chance for Saatchi to stick the knife into his ex-wife, slightly more effectively than tweaking her nose in public.
I’m no fan of Baghdad born Saatchi, who along with his brother Maurice, steered Thatcher to three election victories, during which time Nigellas dad, Nigel was Chancellor of the Exchequer. I’m also no fan of the simpering Nigella, so often described in the media as a chef. She is no chef, she is a posh bird who can cook a bit and make suggestive gestures out of almost any kitchen activity.
What to me this story encapsulates is the arrogance of these people. By taking the Grillo sisters to court , it really didn’t occur to her that she would be digging a big hole for her squeaky clean image to plummet into, and the best bit is she is now acting like the injured party. Or is she? Could it be that Saatchi forced her hand when the credit card bills where uncovered? Anyway, to be honest, I don’t care, she and her ex lost, end of.
While the rest of us are struggling to make ends meet, let alone cook her erotic recipes, I’m sure she will come out of this smelling lovely. Hey, it’s Christmas, why not get a gift set of Charlie?
I wonder if they are going to repackage her book?
Still they could launch a new line of cleaning products:
