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 May 26th, 1997


While her friends slave away, hoping for a promotion, Janelle has found an easier way

I apologise for the delay in getting this up here, but quite frankly I'm in shock. Not content with the relatively recent redesign, the arty types at Woman's Day are at it again. And this time the victim has been the Share A Secret photo.

Yes, the "posed by model" pictorial which I'm proud to have taken part in has been ditched. Its replacement? An "Is This You?" section, where a picture taken of someone at random and in public is published. If it's you in the picture, you get $100. Frankly, this doesn't have the entertainment value of ACP staffers posed in ludicrous circumstances. I may even be forced to rethink this entire section.

The story itself is pretty lame. It can be summed up in just one quote: "Janelle was nothing but a cheap hooker who would go to any extreme for success". Er, quite. Suggested Replacement Headline: SLUT SLEPT HER WAY TO THE TOP
