Q&A with Tanya Hen­nessy


Cosmopolitan (Australia) - - Contents -

Q. How many PJs is too many? Is there a limit on how many I can own?

A. Tanya says The limit does not ex­ist. The way I jus­tify it is, multi­use. Girl, I wear py­jama tops to work – straight from bed to work. I’ve ac­tu­ally worn a py­jama top on TV be­fore. (No one no­ticed... ex­cept ev­ery­one watch­ing.)

Q. How do I know if I re­ally want kids or if I just think I do? A. Tanya says Steal one, and if you don’t want to give it back in a week, you prob­a­bly want kids (ob­vi­ously kid­ding).

Q. Why don’t I want to go club­bing any­more? I used to love it!

A. Tanya says Be­cause who wants to be out in a short skirt and heels that are killing you with a $34 vodka soda? Not me! When you could be at home leg spread­ing and eat­ing a Sara Lee cake with a fork at 9pm.

Q. Where is a place I can get great life ad­vice?

A. Tanya says Sis­ter Act 2.

Q. What are your tips for pro­cras­ti­na­tion?

A. Tanya says It’s re­ally easy to lose fo­cus and get dis­tract… oh my God, there is a cat out­side my win­dow and he’s so cute. I think I’ll name him Paul.

Q. Is it weird I own so many ma­ter­nity jeans when I have never been preg­nant?

A. Tanya says No. You are an icon. Elas­ti­cised waists for the win. You are a higher be­ing.

Q. How do I know what ca­reer I should pur­sue?

A. Tanya says Do an on­line quiz. You can even find out what kind of marginalised Friends char­ac­ter you would be, based on your star sign. Cred­i­ble.

Q. Should I see a psy­chic?

A. Tanya says I saw a psy­chic the other day. I said to her, “Have I seen you be­fore?” and she said, “Maybe in a pre­vi­ous life.” Then I was like, “Nah, at Coles.” She had too many rings, a beaded cur­tain and smelled like in­cense, so I thought she was le­git. I would say yes, but they are ex­pen­sive and of­ten vague: “I feel like you have a birth­day and a face.” Wow, she knows it all.

Q. I don’t want a big wed­ding, but my par­ents do. Help!

A. Tanya says Tell them if they pay, you’ll do it. If not, have it at a Pizza Hut with the all­you­caneat buf­fet.
