“Nasty: My Family and Other Glamorous Varmints”

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Eccentric Glamour by Simon Doonan

For all of you that have been waiting for a new series to top Absolutely Fabulous, the time has come. I was just speaking with the mulit disciplinary Simon Doonan about the story of his life becoming a tv series.

I am delirious about the whole project. To have the producer of Abfab concocting a comedy series based on my life –
it’s every fashion freak’s dream.

I wanted to know if Simon would have anything to do with the series that will be aired on BBC2.

“I am deliriously and deliciously uninvolved.
Not sure when it’s airing. They are casting now.
Can’t wait to see who plays me. Have not lived in the Uk since the 70’s so I
have no idea who should play me. Am leaving it all up to Jon Plowman and Jonathan Harvey.”

Personally, I cannot wait till it comes out on DVD.
