A weekend quickie with Tracey Spicer

Welcome to a new regular feature on ye old WoogsWorld. Who doesn’t love a weekend quickie! I am approaching some women who I adore to spill the beans on some very average topics.

Today we have the delightful Tracey Spicer, who has a new book out. I was lucky to be sent it a little earlier and my friends, I read it in one day. I just could not put it down. It made me laugh, cry and super pissed off as she lift the lid on sexism in the media. I first met her when we were both columnists at The Hoopa, and I am proud to call her a friend.

If you could do any job in the entire world, regardless of talent or qualifications, what would you choose to do?

I would be President of the United States, because clearly – at present – this requires absolutely no talent or qualifications.

Tell me all about your first pet and how did it die?

Sammy was a white cat who walked out the door one day and never came back. (Or was that Dad*…? I always get it mixed up…)

If faced with an open complimentary bar on a Friday night and you have a really good babysitter, what would you most likely order? And if they were out of that, what if your second choice?

A G&T, preferably Bombay Sapphire, ideally with a half-naked man feeding me nuts. My second choice would be a fully naked man.

What is your secret food of shame? Something that you love but could never order in front of your healthy, judgemental mates? (Hint, mine is a Zinger Burger)

Hot chips with the salt outweighing the potato.

Who or what do you despise?


Who or what do you adore?


What are you wearing right at this second and don’t lie to make yourself appear cooler than you actually are. Unless you are actually cool. Then tell the truth.

Ugg boots, animal print pyjama pants and a Ramones t-shirt. Yes, I Wanna Be Sedated.

If you knew that you were going to pass into the next life tomorrow and was at peace with that, what would your “Day on a plate” look like right now?

It would be entirely liquid, consisting of several litres of chardonnay.

What are you doing on the weekend?

Trying to work out what to get hubby for his 46th birthday. Something that doesn’t involve sex, preferably.

Give me 25 words in a project you are working on and feel free to share a link!

My memoir, The Good Girl Stripped Bare, is out now – eeeeeeeeeeee! (Very excited. Sorry. A little bit of wee came out just then…) You can buy it here: The Good Girl Stripped Bare
