A National Treasure

 


Miriam was interviewed by the delightful and insanely attractive Simon Callow and to be honest she started off in a rather subdued and for her persona of chat tv shocker , incredibly subdued way
But when the audience fired questions at her, she blossomed into a warm, self reflective, certainly strident   and intelligent character who , loved celebrated and adored her epithet of national treasure 
A lovely evening 
Her autobiography This Much Is True was released yesterday

  1. I love people who have grabbed onto life and lived it on their own terms. She looks like a very joyous character.

    1. Joyous and bright
      She was more self reflective than I thought she would be

  3. I remember a film with Callow skinny dipping at a pond. I was most impressed.

    Miriam is just fabulous, and we are pleased to have her as one of our own too.

  6. She just doesn't do it for me, but then, we are all of us different.

  8. I did not know her until I read about her here and searched for her on YouTube. In one of the interviews with her she expressed dissatisfaction with her body and it surprised me because earlier I thought how wonderful she loves herself as she is. As always under extreme joy of life there is a very great sadness.

  10. I always thought that her vulgarity made her popular. I have watched her a few times on TV but have never really warmed to her. I may give her autobiography a look at one day and perhaps my opinion of her will change.

  11. She does make me laugh but, when I saw her on The Real Marigold Hotel, I realised I wouldn’t be able to be in her company for too long …. I think I would find her difficult !!! But then, that’s never going to happen so she can keep making me laugh on Graham Norton etc. XXXX
