Manchester United’s Partrice Evra and the ubiquitous Playboy Howe twins (photos)
THE SUN leads with news that married Manchester United defender and suggestive child’s toy Patrice Evra had been “partying with Playboy twins Carla and Melissa Howe” (photos). He was not alone. The Sunsays Evra invited the British Howe twins – Melissa and Carla are 22 – to a Paris club along with four pals including Red Devils team-mate Anderson.
Anderson is single, and a man who has previously only ever been photographed with his dinner. Evra is a Father-of-one married to the fragrant Sandra.
It all sounds like a lot of nothing until you read the front page: “Playboy Twin: My Sex With Rat Evra.”
Carla seems to have the Sun’s newsdesk on speed dial. She told told us in December 2012 about a moment with Olympic gymnast Louis Smith:
We thought his intentions were obvious but when we got to his room it was not what we expected. The first thing I noticed was all the beauty products. Dozens of creams and even hair straighteners.He gave us vodka then started showing us pictures of himself in a calendar. It was strange. He then started watching himself on Strictly, which he had recorded.
The Mirror followed up:
The girls claim that rather than making a move back at his room, he showed them snaps of himself in a new calendar and watched re-runs of his dances on Strictly. They even moaned he was more interested in his hair straighteners than them.
Laughing, Louis remembers things slightly differently. “I never watch myself back on Strictly…I didn’t invite them back to my room but they came anyway. You know when you tread on something and it doesn’t smell nice? You try to shake it off the bottom of your foot. It was like that.”
The lothario arranged to have a chat with CARLA and MELISSA HOWE in a car park after spotting them in the audience at his stand-up gig. Russ swapped numbers with the pair — who have been round the block with a pack of stars including ASHLEY COLE — after the show in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.
In October 2011, they were with Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole:
SOCCER love cheat Ashley Cole was given a lap dance by Playboy TWINS on a wild night at a club. The England ace had invited 21-year-old models Carla and Melissa Howe to his private table, where they sat either side of him.
You might suppose that the Howe twins are more of the Why twins. Why are they in the news so often? In the summer of 2011, they auditioned for Celebrity Big Brother. The Daily Star reported:
SEXY twins who call themselves The British Kardashians are on the hit list for the new Big Brother. Melissa and Carla Howe, 21, jetted in from Las Vegas yesterday to audition for Channel 5 show Big Brother.
The shapely pair, who went to the States to find fame and have dated Hollywood stars, stole the show at the try-outs with their dazzling outfits. The red-headed babes from Buckinghamshire, who dance and act, proudly boast that they have “natural 32DD boobs”.
Their website tells us:
Melissa And Her twin Carla at the age of 21 have already distinguished themselves in several areas of the entertainment industry.
Oddly, the story of Howe and Evra is no longer on the Sun’s website. Might it be that the paper got caught in story that is more PR than fact? Hang about in car park long enough or ask Hazel Howe (their mother?) and you might find out…
