32 my hairy arsehole hmm

Poor wee Papaya. Stupid name and a pair of fuckwits for parents. Sigh.

ProudNeathGirl Thu 27-Sep-12 15:39:01

Well, I suppose if you can have Apple and Peaches, why not Papaya? Not my thing though - I like "proper" names.

I saw a documentary thing about her.....her 16 year old daughter is fabulous, so much more switched on and mature than her mother. As soon as I saw the thread title I knew it was abut her.

Awful name.And they might as well call the poor baby 'Vomit Fruit' because that's what papaya tastes like.

Frontpaw Thu 27-Sep-12 16:20:42

Pawpaw! Hahahahahahaha!

Poor child, what an ugly name.

Frontpaw Thu 27-Sep-12 16:23:07

32? She looks older than me and she's had plastic surgery.

JakeBullet Thu 27-Sep-12 16:42:43

I think they have her age wrong tbh....

PickledFanjoCat Thu 27-Sep-12 16:44:18

I like the fruit.

Its a silly name, but they are all at it really arent they. I would ask to be called Paps.

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Thu 27-Sep-12 17:33:55

Paps is too much like Pap smears!
I do like the fruit- just never saw it as a name confused

CherryBlossom27 Thu 27-Sep-12 17:39:34

Ick! Not a good name, but I'm guessing she's thinking of Peaches Geldof or Apple don't the the surname but daughter of Gwyneth Paltrow?

charlottehere Thu 27-Sep-12 18:04:00

I saw the the programme with her older daughter too, was like a real life abfab, adeana - alissis/ saffy - georgia.

cupcake78 Thu 27-Sep-12 18:11:23

As in the fruit? Dear god alive

birdofthenorth Thu 27-Sep-12 20:42:39

Worse than Peaches. Better than Apple. Heaven help the Pineapples and Satsumas that follow.

JakeBullet Fri 28-Sep-12 07:14:12

I think in the documentary she came across much better, it showed that she knew her approach to surgery etc wasn't normal and she did not want that for her daughter. Hence the daughter is so normal I think....wasn't even allowed a boyfriend until she was 16.

dashoflime Fri 28-Sep-12 07:20:13

I agree. She seemed a bit daft and a bit troubled but basically nice. Her eldest daughter us a real gem.

ATruthUniversallyAcknowledged Fri 28-Sep-12 07:23:37

32?! hmm

I bet she had the What To Expect app on her phone. It tells you what size fruit your unborn baby is every week. Ours is nicknamed Papaya in honour of this (although it's now a large cantaloupe melon, apparently). It is unlikely to go on the birth cert though.

EarnestDullard Fri 28-Sep-12 10:08:46

I have the What to Expect book, and one that stuck in my mind was when the baby was the size of a "mango dipped in greasy cheese" (or something). I'm not sure Mango Dipped In Greasy Cheese goes with our surname though hmm

CachuHwch Fri 28-Sep-12 10:14:21

Earnest grin grin grin Does it really say that?
Your baby is now the size of:
A small anorexic blue tit;
A furball coughed up by a three-year old tortoiseshell tom cat;
A pineapple, gone slightly off, then dipped in baked bean juice.

Papaya, to me, is a make of clothes from Matalan.

Isn't that matalans range of own brand clothing?
