£10 for a Selfie
Reality TV star Angelina Haddock has hit upon an ingenious money-making scheme. The 19-year-old balloon-faced star of last year's top reality show The Only Way is Newport Pagnell, has spent the last few months desperately trying to extend her fragile fifteen minutes of 'fame' with a series of personal appearances in nightclubs and occasional guest spots as 'the thick one' on comedy panel shows. In a further attempt to wring hard cash from her celebrity status before it finally coughs, splutters and dies, she has been charging ten quid a pop for 'selfies'.
For those who don't know or, more probably, don't care, a 'selfie' is a photograph taken of oneself via a mobile handheld telephonic communication device. Presumably, the people who pursue this hobby need to be constantly reminded what they look like.
Haddock has been very industrious on the selfie front over the past year. Of course, the nature of the selfie being what it is, she has had to pay herself for all these photos. So far she hasn't managed to grasp why her bank balance in not increasing and no one has had the time or patience to explain it to her.
