Major pop star in the UK in the 60s, moved on to light entertainment in the 70s, and became the queen of Saturday night TV in the 80s. She was an infamous cunt, especially well known for being rude to cabin crew.

I worked at a major London department store a few years back. She turned up pissed off her head with a shopping list she just gave to the first sales assistant she found. This poor kid had no idea who she was but was kind of obligated to help her out, especially when it became apparent she was famous and crowds would form. I really felt sorry for him - he was just a Christmas temp on minimum wage and this drunk old lady dragged him around the entire store ticking things off her grandkids' wishlist. O and she'd got drunk with Louis Walsh upstairs beforehand.

[quote]Cilla would do most of her weekly shopping at a small grocery store called Fishers in Gerrards Cross. Despite there only being three check-out counters in the tiny store, when Cilla had finished her weekly shop she would, without fail, refuse to line up at an open counter even if there was only one person in front of her.

[quote]Instead, she would go and stand in front of one of the unmanned counters until someone opened it up especially for her. True to form, she would never speak to the staff to request it, just stand there staring daggers until someone did so.

For those who don’t know her: I spent a semester in London in 87.

British TV was very limited. Not the number of channels we in the US were accustomed to. And there was this show (Surprise, Surprise) with this delusional buck-toothed woman singing in a voice infused with mediocrity. There were segments where she would do things like dance around a carousel while lip synching to some instantly forgettable ditty about a day in the park. Total cheese. And I was riveted!

That’s when I realized the truth: in every culture, there are people who inexplicably make it many levels above their ceiling. Cilla was one of Britain’s. But we all have them. And when an outsider encounters them, it’s mind blowing… like, who are the people who think she’s anywhere near the level of talent commensurate with her opportunities and talent?

by Anonymousreply 38April 8, 2022 10:19 AM

R35, I’ve heard this from multiple sources, including people who know her personally. She is disliked in Glasgow for several reasons.

She switches on her long abandoned Glaswegian accent for comedic effect when she is being interviewed. It doesn’t go down well here. It’s the same thing John Barrowman does.

She is a Tory, and publicly supported Thatcher in election campaigns. Margaret Thatcher is still seen as the devil incarnate in much of Scotland as her policies decimated whole communities by closing heavy industry with no recovery plan. There are still places which have never recovered. Lulu still has family here, and some of them must have been affected.

Most of all it’s her habit of bursting uninvited into We-e-e-e-e-ell at every opportunity. It’s guaranteed, and it’s very irritating.

I’ve also been told that she has a stinky fanny. UK meaning. Delightful.

For all the time that I was aware of her she was an old cow, but I was always amazed at the hair: with a ratting comb and industrial barrels of hair spray she always made some bizarre and magnificently large helmet from a few stray gray pubic hairs, like the gauze some insect wraps around its egg sac. Surely she was the inspiration of Gary Oldman's terrorific sweeping mass of cotton floss hairdo in Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992).

She wasn't ubiquitous, she was a star, if not an especially well loved star.

As a singer she had hits from 1963 to 1971 and that was it. Where as Dusty, Lulu, Sandie Shaw and even Petula had a career renaissance Cilla had no recording success, not even her bargain bin compilation albums with some new duets.

She did some tv variety shows over the years but her regular prime time TV shows were on from the mid 80s to the early 00s, when she turned 60. After that she wasn't on tv much but was just famous.

Maybe she left a stipulation in her will that they put it up or else. Or they thought it would look bad if they didn't. The children of disturbed people like Cilla can be hostages emotionally to them after they die.

My mother was a narcissist and the neighborhood crazy woman. I came back to take care of her when she developed Alzheimer's. That was 15 years ago and I began hearing stories about her (I left for college at 19) from neighbors. To this day I hear an occasional story of her cuntiness (she died three years ago). As a kid and teen, I thought she mostly kept it to the family. I also made excuses for her (she's depressed, had some hard times in life). I found the stories both validating and embarrassing.

Imagine waking up to find your mother trending on Twitter and it's not because she was a beloved entertainer... I'd probably LMAO at first, then feel a twinge of sadness.

Yes, a lot of projection.

Ellen Degeneres may be a horrible woman, but I think she has genuine talent. She was also a figurehead for lesbian culture. Finding Nemo would not have worked without her amazing innocent deadpan.

Lulu was a genuine sex bomb with a great voice and the ability to mock herself (AbFab, anyone?)

Danny Kaye, Frank Sinatra, Lauren Bacall, Patti Lupone, Yul Brenner, Faye Dunaway, Madonna, Bette Davis, Diana Ross, hell, Dionne Warwick - all legendary cunts, but also genuine legends.

Cilla Black is the cunt without the legend.

I'm sorry. I can't stop seeing her tits now.

Surprise, surprise, indeed.

Did she not make enough money for orthodontics? Or a bra? Sagging tits and a likely roll in the waist is not a good look.

Not to go OT, but was Bonnie in the same category as Cilla, cunt-wise?

by Anonymousreply 128November 25, 2023 9:11 PM

R128, I don't think so. The only former co-star who ever spoke poorly of the Bonstress was Mary Louise Wilson. Valerie Bertinnelli and MacKenzie Phillips speak fondly of her. Pat Harrington said that he wished she'd stayed on for one more reason for his own financial interests, but I don't think it was personal. Otherwise, people seemed to like Bonnie, they just found her Ann Romano incredibly grating.

Is Cilla Black the Kathie Lee Gifford of the UK?

by Anonymousreply 133November 26, 2023 2:29 PM

Cilla hating is a cottage industry in some UK factions and much of this is just a rehash of many British tabloid tales, a source DL usually dismisses. She was undoubtably a demanding diva but she was a long presence. She even had a fairly recent and successful musical about her, Cilla.

by Anonymousreply 134November 26, 2023 2:58 PM

She was one of the most talent free cunts to ever come down the pike.

She was not posh at all, from working class and rough around the edges, but she could sing. Without autotune.

I've never heard of Cilla Black, so I thought the OP was trying to say "silly black cunt stories". I expected to see tales of David Ehrenstein.

I joined DL around the time Ehrenstein was wrapping up his time here (2002ish). I regret not seeing his "greatest hits."

R143, if you whisper "Lena Horne was a lesbian" three times, he may come back from the dead and recite them.

I'm not British but what's the reference made here to have to choose between "aloe vera" and "see you Cilla"? As a side note I can't believe the episode almost literally outed Peter Mandelson more than a decade before he eventually came out. That makes Linda's claim of having been penetrated by him even more ludicrous.

Offsite Link
by Anonymousreply 145November 26, 2023 10:15 PM

The line is just a play on hello/goodbye: aloe vera=hello vera, see you cilla=goodbye cilla

And Mandelson had been outed by tabloids in 1980s and again in 1998, the year before the GGG episode, by gay journalist Matthew Parris on Newsnight. There had been 2 gay sex scandals and The Sun ran a headline saying ‘is Britain being run by a Gay mafia’. Parris included Mandelson as Gay cabinet ministers live on tv.
