Through your life you will find that you fall for someone you don’t approve of. If Romeo and Juliet had this problem, who are we to think that we might be any different?! And come on, it wouldn’t have been half as interesting if Shakespeare told it that they went home to Juliet’s dad and he said “sure, so how much is this wedding going to cost me?” would it?
So I thought I would make a list of celebrities that your mother would definitely not approve of. While listening to S Club Juniors. Goddamn iPod shuffle…..
Sawyer from Lost
My mother would tell me that Sawyer from Lost was a bad penny. She would say that he was best avoided, as he was a bad boy, and she would probably be right. And that’s why we like him, right girls?
Come on guys, you must agree with your mummy on this one. Botched boob job, lilo lips and the worst fake tan in history? She’s the kind of plus one that would make your dad ask “why would you do that to your mother?!”
Angel from Buffy
Surely this is obvious. He is dead. My mother is tolerant, but I think that might be pushing it.
Slightly embarrassing dinner table conversations as you do your best to cough over her extreme opinions on a multitude of topics.
It’s hard for me to bad mouth the silver fox, but I’m sure mothers all over the world would agree. Right, he is gorgeous and probably a nice man, but his track record isn’t doing him any favours. Although I see he is single again (shocker) so form an orderly queue.
Hannah (Belle du Jour) from Secret Diary of a Call Girl
Nice enough girl by day. Bit too much eyeliner for le jour, but we can forgive her. It could all go really well, until your dad asks her innocently what she does for a job. Call girl. End of conversation. Awkward.
The ‘dee oh double gee’ would not be welcome for dinner at my mums. For one, she wouldn’t understand him due to his desperate need to add ‘izzle’ on the end of everything, and the pot smoking might be an issue too.
Have I missed any good ones?!
