During five weeks of promoting Absolutely Now!, Lynne Franks admits
to doing all the things she used to warn her clients against -
interviews at home, introducing family and boyfriends, and doing an
interview with Lynn Barber.
’I’m not going to answer any more questions about peeing in a circle or
whether I’m still friends with Jennifer Saunders,’ Franks announced at a
party for friends and colleagues last week.
The party at the offices of Lynne Franks PR verged on the sedate - a far
cry from the days its founder described from her chat-show style
One Christmas party had a green and red theme, including the drinks -
’People complained of green pee for days afterwards’. (I thought we
weren’t going to mention pee? - Ed).
As the book makes clear, excess - be it alcohol, cocaine or shopping -
has become a thing of the past for Franks. Well, maybe not shopping.
This particular event was all over by 9.30pm - or maybe no one told me
where the after-party party was.
