Mumba One

‘FAME is a cruel mistress. How was Samantha Mumba to know that after meeting and talking about marriage and kids with boyfriend Mark Henderson (known later in the piece as Mark O’Connor) she would make it big?

‘Anyone remember my boyfriend’s name?’

Samantha is seen on her ‘homecoming’ trip to Zambia in her role as ambassador for UINICEF. She poses with the locals in her father’s homeland, getting them to look so happy that they might just burst.

But it is the shot of she with Mark that really raises an eyebrow.

To be blunt, Mark is normal. Not normal in a refreshing way, but normal in a way that says: ‘What’s she doing with him?’

Is this cruel? You betcha, but this is fame and it is hurtful, painful stuff.

As for Mark, we only hope he takes care not to get eaten alive in the game reserve he is pictured visiting – or in the Hollywood Hills, where the plain and ordinary are sucked up and spat out like so much dust…
