Our columnist Dawn Nee­som has her say

Woman's Own - - HELLO & WELCOME -

Some­what shock­ingly Spice Girl Mel B’s au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, Bru­tally Hon­est, is set to be one of the best-sell­ers this Christ­mas. I say shock­ingly be­cause it’s a self-in­dul­gent romp through drug binges, three­somes, sex tapes and booze ben­ders.

While I have ev­ery sym­pa­thy for women who marry id­iots, not all of us use it as an ex­cuse to plunge into a he­do­nis­tic hell.

Mel – who has three daugh­ters – blames ev­ery­one but her­self for her be­hav­iour. Her so­lu­tion to emo­tional pain was drugs. Then she says her hus­band lost her her £80m for­tune. Drugs aren’t cheap, love.

Once upon a time Mel was all about girl power. By her own ac­counts she handed all that power over to men. Scary.

Mel: tell-toomuch au­thor
