We were amused the other day to note that Mel Ve’s optimistically named “CCN Third Quarter Review”, in which she tried her utmost to sound like a real, grown-up news channel, she somehow managed to omit her erstwhile superstar, Angela Power-Disney. In her list of “Landmark Shows and World Changing Projects”, there was nary a mention of Ms Dizzy-Powder. Strange.
Not that we can really blame Mel; after all, if ratings are anything to go by, Angela has been tanking lately.
Her Yankee side-kick, brought over to rejuvenate the Hampstead hoax, has all but disappeared. And lets face it, for most of Angela’s loyal viewers (the majority of whom are commenters on this blog, and were only going over to point and laugh anyway) the show really lost its spark once Rupert discovered that it probably wasn’t a great idea to box a copper’s ears after all.
Aside from the fact that watching Angela’s show is a tooth-grittingly, eye-wateringly awful experience—from the terrible sound quality and non-existent sets, to the long, rambling, self-absorbed pity parties she holds in her own honour, to the cavalcade of lies and half-truths, it’s a marathon of agony from start to finish—the woman simply has nothing of interest to say.
Mel knows when to give up on a losing horse, though: she’s had plenty of experience at it. Just look at her pattern of backing losers like Kevin Annett, and then just as enthusiastically back-pedalling away from him when it became clear that his star was sinking, and about to take Mel’s down with it.
In fact, if there’s one thing guaranteed to get Mel’s dander up, it’s mentioning her former deep and abiding friendship with the de-frocked Canadian con artist, and her inability to scrape him off the bottom of her boots now.
We suspect Angie might want to take a hint: Mel isn’t known for sticking by her friends when they lose their troofer cachet, which Rev Kev has most certainly done.
Here’s McKenzie’s Devils’ take on the matter:
As always, MKD gets straight to the nub of the matter: Mel sees that the Hampstead hoax has already hit the iceberg, and is heading straight for the bottom. If there’s a lifeboat, she’s claiming dibs; and there’s no room for Angie.
