Yesterday

Filed under: News — Tags: — stevnima @ 10:04 am

Sorry for not posting any articles yesterday.  I figured I should at least explain why even if this isn’t bollywood news.

On my way to work yesterday I was in a auto accident.  I was very lucky to walk away from it.  I suffered a few bumps and bruises but other than that I am fine.  Today I am sore but that will probably last a few days until I am ready to get back to work.

Here are a few pictures of what my truck looked like after the accident.

“I’d never become an inmate again”, she says laughing. “This is a good thing, playing host. I want to make it very different from the usual TV hosts. I am an actress and I bring that to the show. I want the audience to be curious about everything, what I’ll wear etc.

Did you have a hand in getting Jade into the house?

No I don’t decide. But I could’ve said ‘no’ to the channel. They were apprehensive about telling me of her inclusion but I had no hassles. I believe in forgiving and moving on… Actually I owe her. She made me what I became in the UK.

Have you really forgiven her?

Yes of course. I was very shocked to hear of her illness and pray for her wellbeing.
