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 November 25th, 1996


She didn't know where her ex had gone, until she met her daughter's fiance

Our prediction last week that the change of headline styles would affect the impact of Share A Secret appears all too accurate. In the old style, this one could have been headlined 'MY DAUGHTER IS MARRYING THE FATHER OF MY CHILD' or 'HE STOLE MY HEART -- AND MY DAUGHTER'S!'. Instead, we're left with the lame 'SHE WED MY LOVER'.

That complaint aside, it's a good sleazy story, and a ludicrous picture shows two women who look completely unrelated pointing at a strange-looking man in front of a rustic blue door. As befits the watering down of this section, the main splash of red is actually a watermelon colour, but we're sure it will all settle down eventually.
