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 January 27th, 1997

MY CRUEL VENDETTA

Her campaign of lies backfired, and she lost her daughter's love


The basic story goes something like this: silly old biddy has fight with daughter during wedding planning, flings daughter and future husband out of house. Silly old biddy badmouths husband. Daughter and husband never speak to silly old biddy. Silly old biddy finally works out that this is her fault. Moral of the story: you can always be sillier, older, and biddier.

Actually, the interesting thing is that the word 'vendetta' is probably the best we've seen in a recent Share A Secret headline, and yet the actual tale is so lame. To compound that sin, the only hint of red on the page is in the photo of the daughter, hubby and grandchild being held by the distraught vendetta-mad old biddy (posed by model). When oh when will the nightmare end?

Suggested Replacement Headline: MY VICIOUS LIES DROVE MY DAUGHTER INTO HIS ARMS
