sex, lives & videotape

IF YOU didn’t know better you’d be forgiven for thinking you were seeing the real deal. The beach babe with the pneumatic chest, legs to die for and high-cut red cozzie. The out-there rocker with the heavy tattoos, dark guyliner and dyed black hair. Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, right? Well, yes - but also no. The pair, who rocked our world in more ways than one in the 1990s, have been reinvented by Lily James (complete with impressive falsies) and Sebastian Stan (complete with fake ink). They’re bringing back to life the tumultuous relationship between the Baywatch beauty and the Mötley Crüe frontman - and the sex tape that exploded into the public domain and went viral before viral was even a thing. Pam and Tommy is an eight-episode series by streaming giant…

bye-bye boeps!

THE twins are well-known businessmen in their small town, recognised almost everywhere they go. But over the past five years their appearances began to change to such an extent people had to do a double-take to make sure it was them.

They were tired of their big boeps and bulging butts – something had to be done. Martin and Marius aren’t only twins, they’re best friends and best friends often embark on challenges together. If they tackled things as a team, they decided, they’d double their chance of success. At his heaviest, Martin weighed a dangerous 192kg. His brother clocked in…

READ THIS ‘SELFIE time!” says Sihle, grabbing her cellphone. “So, your plan is to not let me work?” I say with a sigh, resisting the urge to roll my eyes at my co-worker. “Nope,” Sihle says with a cheeky grin as she jumps up from her chair in the office we share She walks around my desk, crouches next to me, stretches her hand, then positions her phone to get the best selfie angle. I reluctantly huddle close to her as she smiles broadly and says, “Selfie!” Click, click goes the cellphone camera with Sihle baring her gorgeous smile while I look … sheepish. “Let’s try again,” she says after flicking through the couple of pictures she’s taken. Looking in that camera and seeing my friend’s beautiful teeth, I’m suddenly filled with anxiety. It’s been an ongoing…

GO ON, GIVE HER A KISS! Today many marriages are just for sleeping and waking up together, raising kids and ageing together until death arrives. This is not right at all. I call it the malfunctioning of family units. Marriage is supposed to be enjoyable and romantic. A lot of couples these days hardly kiss, and they only hug each other when they receive good news. The only time a husband gets to put food in his wife’s mouth is when she’s seriously ill and can’t feed herself. The only thing that makes a man touch his wife’s neck is when she has a fever. He will simply rub her and then wait for the next time she has a fever. And if you happen to see a couple sitting on a bench on…

in brief

I want to thank every single healthcare worker in our country for their dedication to their patients during this coronavirus crisis. You have done an amazing job. BJ, EMAIL Prince Harry, you’ll do more good for mental health focusing on the good things that have happened in your past instead of spewing forth toxic bile. Do you really want people to remember you for this? You’re caught in a web of greed, anger and desire. Come and live among us, you’ll then be enlightened. SHARON KRITZINGER, EMAIL Oh dear! Where does “wimpy William” come from E Van Heerden (YOU Say, 13 May)? The only wimp in that family is Harry who lets his pushy wife lead him by the nose.
