Australia's Next Top Westie Scrag - Thank You

Oh, hello. 
You may have come here in the hope of finding recaps for Series 9 of Australia's Next Top Model.
Alas, this blog will no longer host those, for two reasons:

The very, very big reason is that the marvellous Charlotte Dawson is no longer with us. She was a massive champion of these recaps and through this blog she contacted me and we became good friends.
We'd sit at her apartment (with wine always and Monopoly sometimes) and watch Top Model episodes, her playing the bits she found particularly hilarious over and over and over again, laughing her boisterous and endearing guffaw. 
Through and thanks to Charlotte, the recaps on this blog were given a very exciting amount of attention - she pretty much crammed them down the throat of anyone who admitted to watching the show, and solely from her influence I've been able to secure a lot of writing work.
She was so, so generous with her support of my writing, and making her laugh was an indescribable bonus. 
There's no way I could write Australia's Next Top Westie Scrag without her. 

The smaller reason is that I'll be writing shorter, less-sweary recaps of each show for news.com.au. I reckon she would've thought that was, in her words, "graysh".
And for those of you who, as a result, may accuse me of selling out: 
I KNOW, HOW COOL IS IT.

Thank you very, very much for reading my recaps in the past. You made being a little bit mean to truly beautiful people and the world's best TV show so much fun. 

x
Jo.

I understand and respect your reasoning Jo, I'll read your recaps still, where-ever they show up. This big song and dance will be missed though. Thank you for all your efforts.

Thanks for making me feel less guilty about watching a reality TV show for these past few years. I will definitely read your re-caps and add my own swear words. Will you post a link to them when they appear?

Thanks for the brilliant years of recaps, totally respect your decisio.
Charlotte was brilliant.

Thank you for years of entertainment.

More than a few tears were shed in this house, when Tyra dedicated this season to Charlotte, and then more at the introduction of the judging panel. It just looked... empty.

Good luck with your news.com.au work - I'll be looking out for you!
