Don’t cry for Twink... she intruded on Rory’s grief
WHATEVER slim chance showbiz stars Twink and Rory Cowan had of patching up their differences was torpedoed once the panto veteran turned up at Rory’s mother’s funeral in Dublin. Judging by Rory’s explosive reaction, Twink had seriously underestimated his animosity towards her since their highprofile feud. Either that or she had wrongly gambled on the great come-all-ye tradition of the Irish funeral as the healing balm for relations between warring friends.
Twink could be forgiven for that misstep but her behaviour after Rory’s rebuff is harder to excuse. When she realised that Rory – who gave up Mrs Brown’s Boys to care for his beloved mother – was in no mood for her, she should have quietly slunk off. Instead she turned Mrs Cowan’s dignified funeral into another episode of the Twink show.
She sobbed about how she drove away ‘blinded in tears’, before reflecting that ‘if you can’t offer an old friend sympathy on the death of their mother, there is no hope for anyone’. The panto queen’s self-pity flowed as she said: ‘I have done nothing all my life but love Rory. I will never forget the numbing embarrassment. I will never get those minutes back that he offended me’.
