Society girl

A reassuring sign that Australian television still believes a woman's place is acting like a lady and behaving as a princess. A depressing new program is looking for contestants:

"If you think you’re a ‘diamond in the rough’ who can be transformed into a Princess with poise, elegance, beauty and grace, then fill out the attached registration form and send it to us immediately."

"The chosen contestants will be flown to Sydney and will learn how to walk, talk and act like a real Princess. Paul Burrell, former butler to Princess Diana and the Queen, will lead a team of international experts in etiquette and the royal pursuits, who will give contestants all the skills required in order to fit into proper society."

Girls, boycott. Potential Prince Charmings, look elsewhere. Paul Burrell, can't find regular employment?
