Shock: Rosie in lock­down, goes home early

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE -

Idon’t know quite how to break it to you. Rosanna Dav­i­son went for din­ner at the Pow­er­scourt Ho­tel on New Year’s Eve with her fam­ily and hus­band Wes but — quelle hor­reur — didn’t stay. The su­per­model, turned au­thor, told me that the afore­men­tioned five-star ho­tel in En­niskerry had “live band and danc­ing to cel­e­brate at mid­night.

“My dad didn’t get up and sing,” she said, re­fer­ring to Lady Diana’s favourite singer, Chris de Burgh. “It was a fun evening but I had to get up for col­lege work the next morn­ing. So it wasn’t a late one. We just spent the evening there, then re­turned home.”

Can Wes­ley sing? “No! But he’s a good dancer. Con­fi­dent on the dance floor.” The rea­son poor Rosie wasn’t able to stay up un­til dawn ring­ing in the New Year was her dis­ser­ta­tion for her mas­ter’s de­gree in nutri­tion. “I have to have it fin­ished this week. So I’m on lock­down.” So, no thoughts of St Valen­tine’s for you and Wes? “I haven’t thought that far ahead yet. We’ll prob­a­bly go to Rasam,” she said, mean­ing the hip­ster In­dian restau­rant in Glasthule, pop­u­lar with the beau­ti­ful peo­ple (Jessie Wal­lace of East­end­ers’ fame was in on New Year’s Day.)

From the svelte fig­ure of the Miss World 2013, you’d be for­given for think­ing she isn’t one for ex­actly lor­ry­ing into the In­dian tuck (and if she did lorry into said In­dian tuck she could re­brand her­self with the ti­tle of AC/DC’S 1978 hit Whole Lotta Rosie. Joke.)

So, does Rosanna merely push the food around the plate? “No,” she laughed, “I eat it! But they do a pretty healthy veg­gie thali and I take it easy on the sauces, rice and naan.”
