Vivacious chatterbox

IT MUST be said that we are never jealous of our fellow sisters. We love celebrities and we love celebs with endorsements even more.

Terry Pheto of L'Orèal is lovely, Bonang Matheba and her bag collection are great to chat to, while Nonhle Thema, who is the face of Dark and Lovely is too lovely for words.

But our favourite brand ambassador is the vivacious Gerry Elsdon.

We had the pleasure of chatting to her at the Avon launch at the super glamorous Rosebank Hotel on Tuesday night and, boy, does this woman chat!

She told us about her crazy overseas trip, which included being told off by German women and taking a bus through Europe, all because she could not catch a flight to Geneva for one of her famous talks - those poor people.

But as much as Mrs Elsdon does talk, she really makes sense even if her outfit did not.

She walked in looking like a naughty schoolgirl in a baby-doll dress, ankle boots and gloves that we are certain she bought from a charity shop - zany and crazy.

She made a lot of sense telling us about her interest in her new car which, she insisted, her hubby did not buy - we had not enquired.

She went on and on for what seemed like days and even managed to tell us about Avon's new skin care ranges for older women. We also chatted to some uber glamorous beauty editors such as Ayanda Bikitsha, who seemed excited about their new editor called Sbu. Oh, Bikitsha looked snazzy in her new Merc or was it a Beamer?

Great breakfast and thanks for the lovely products since we too want to look like Elsdon. Maybe not talk as much, but look as smooth and clean as she does. We heard so much about her car that we insisted that she pose next to it. She crashed her last one - of course it was not her fault. Oh, the car is lovely and we girls are a bit jealous though she insists that hubby, who works for Chrysler, had nothing to do with buying it.

We are not too sure since it's a Merc and made by the same company.

Okay, we are very jealous - everybody has nice cars, except us. We will tell folk we are being environmentally friendly, just to save face.
