Remember back when I started at Fabulous and I mentioned that The Sun features a nearly nekkid photo of a girl every day on its Page Three? (Which, btw, contrary to The Post’s Page Six, is actually on Pg. 3.) And that I was going to shield you from this nudity nonsense? Well, the time has come, dear readers, to unveil the boobs. Because this weekend, I made my Page Three debut.
See, on the weekend, The Sun doesn’t feature a bare-breasted woman as it does Monday through Friday. But they still like to, ahem, titillate, so they’ll often feature a photo of a scantily-clothed celebrity instead.
And since yesterday’s issue of Fabulous was the debut of our refresh, The Sun wanted to trace to the mag to remind people to take a look and hence, leading with a sexy outtake from our cover story on Myleene Klass. So Rachel asked me to write up said tracer, including the juiciest quotes from the interview, followed by a bit on the new look and our new features.
No sweat, I thought. I’d done this before for The Post to promo Page Six Mag.
Flash forward to Saturday evening when I get a text from Lachlan who was working The Sun newsdesk that night.
“Hey, did you ever think when you came here that you’d be a Page Three Girl?”
Huh? I thought.
And then, Ohhhhhh, right.
After sending the copy to Rachel, I never saw edits and neither of us knew for sure it’d actually go in. (This is a newspaper, people, anything can happen.) But now it had been confirmed: I’d be on Page Three. Fully clothed, thankyouverymuch. And, in actuality, not really there at all. Just my name. Way more appropriate. (I could only imagine what Dean Rubin from Newhouse would think if it were anything more…or, er, less.)
No matter that what was printed read little like what I actually composed — am used to newsdesk editing — I made it on Page Three!
So here, ladies and gents, is the moment you’ve all been waiting for: my Page Three, followed by a typical one.
