Treshure Urself: Release date (not) announced

Im sorry to do a completely 'unrelated to OB" post but this is just too exciting..

After years and years of breathless anticipation and media speculation it seems that Treshure Urself is going to be released later this year.

"It's been reported since 2007 that Victoria's Secret model and Orlando Bloom sweetheart Miranda Kerr is penning a self-esteem book for teenage girls. Though there is still no set release date, Elle reports the tome--titled "Treasure Yourself"--will be out later this year. The Aussie model told the magazine "It's about encouraging young women to embrace their individuality....You may think it's easy for me to say, but we all have insecurities. It's important, as women, to get past all of that and let our talents shine."

I'm so excited about this, my meaningless life is about to be given a second chance! Maybe she will be able to tell me how to be less fat'n'jellus, perhaps she will give me some rousing words on how women don't need to bend to the male ideal of sexy, maybe she will give me some tips on posing naked.... the possibilities are endless

sadly some even more fat'n'jellus people are less excited about this literary achievement than I..... I thought a whistle stop tour of some of the comments may be in order:

"Does treasuring yourself include starving yourself and smoking? Because Kerr has done both.

Oh dear, the writer is obviously fat'n'jellus and doesn't appreciate true beauty when he/she sees it.. lets continue shall we?

"Does she know writing? I think her book will have only pictures, very easy to be read by top models."

In fairness this commenter may have a point - her grasp of spoken english isn't good, it tends to be a mixed in with dingoese.

"I heard this book ‘Treasure Yourself” coming out since 2007…..

It’s now 2010….."

This cruel poster obviously doesn't realise that when one is living the lyfe and provin twu luuurve with Orelandoe one doesn't have much time to chivvy the actually writer of this manual of life along....

Happily people have also come out in defense of this latest enterprise:

Do you really want to insult a young woman who is trying to make a healthy change in the lives of teenaged girls?
You must be true haters if that is what you doing.
Shame on you."

I know - shame on all of us that are just fat'n'jellus.. Don't worry I'm sure Karma will come bite US in the ass someday.....

Still, at least Orlando looks happy - he's probably reckoning that if she can get this book out she'll be famous enough on her own and he'll be able to run away!


  1. I just got this through an alert

    Maybe the treashuring of herself she's done has left her malnourished!

    tee hee hee

  2. "You may think it's easy for me to say, but we all have insecurities."

    We know, dingho, we know. BTW, Huphphington post is one of my favorite websites. Please stay the phuck away from it. Thank you.

  3. i love how we have media modelling of the 80/20 rule she's always banging on about to combat any malicious comments about her weight LMAO :)

  4. Wanda, you stole my dingo quotation...

    Dear DingHo: No. one. cares. what. you. have. to. phucking. say.

  5. with a bit of luck this book wont ever make it out of the publishers.....

  6. I agree with that poster who said that it might be a picture book but I think she should re-think her angle and have it aim towards young boys.If she did that, she certainly would be set for life, what young boy would give up the chance to learn how to treshure urself with pictures from a model.

  7. I can think of other things guys from puberty upwards might do with a book that was helping them to treashure themselves....

    rumour has it the Panty Mantis is on a shortlist for a movie... I hope thats true... that would be f**king hilarious...

    "oye whot du yew meane eye kan't stycke mye butt oute - but its teh onleey way eye loooke seksy"

    tee hee hee, why do i think she'd give new definition to the descriptor "wooden" lol
