Share A Secret Reviewed

Share A Secret Reviewed looks at the weekly Share A Secret column in Australia's biggest-selling magazine, Woman's Day. We at Gusworld love it, and we hope you will too. We don't give away the plot (that would be unfair and a possible breach of copyright); we just tell you what the headline is and describe the stunning artwork that goes with it.

Woman's Day dated September 16th, 1996

I WANTED TO LOOK LIKE DOLLY PARTON

She'd do anything to keep her man, even if it meant changing her body and face so she'd be the image of his dream woman


Sadly, the strategy didn't work, at least not for the Woman's Day stylists. Sure, the red lips and red nails and blonde hair are there, but, to be frank, the jugs just don't cut it. Or the schnozz, for that matter.

Still, with a headline like that, who needs good illustrative material? The searing tale of a country singer who makes herself into a Dolly clone just to shunt some sad-act called Roy (truly) is just what the doctor ordered. And there's a twist at the end as well (well, given the context, it's more of a pretzel, but what do you expect?)
