750,000 giggle over dodgy graduation snap • September 16, 2008 • No Comments

I was young, I couldn’t afford a stylist… But surely it’s not right that my fashion mistakes should come back to haunt me so, well, publicly? It was with horror that I opened the Times on 16 September to see my cheesy graduation picture (taken July 2000) featured quite so boldly, under the headline ‘Peer fear can be …MORE

It worked for Paris and Britney… • August 3, 2008 • No Comments

Can this be right? Has Dude followed in the footsteps of Paris Hilton and Britney Spears – appearing in a sleazy YouTube clip, posted online by a mercenary kiss-and-tell ex? As if! Dude is a lady, after all. The video might not be that kind of controversial… but it is considerably more fun than anything else you’ll …MORE

Jeremy Kyle: 'I fear for my job' • June 25, 2008 • No Comments

‘Dude?’ went down a storm at the Guardian London Graduate Fair. With over 100 people in the audience on both days, we had good sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday.

'Maimed but still breathing' – Tanya survives student shark attack • June 10, 2008 • No Comments

Let’s be honest – more often than not university ‘speaker events’ are one giant yawn. A crusty expert drones on for 20 minutes, before a facilitator ‘throws it open to the floor!’ – and no-one has any questions. Excruciating. Not so at the University of London’s ‘Getting into media’ event yesterday, where I joined a panel of fabulously feisty …MORE

Tanya breaks down: 'I'm an Amazon addict' • June 6, 2008 • 1 Comment

Troubled times at Dude? HQ – I’ve developed a horrific case of Amazonitis, checking my sales ranking hourly. Alright, alright – jeezus, what is this? – I’m lying, I’m lying… Yes, it’s much more like half-hourly. What’s a sales ranking? You’ve probably never noticed this number – and why would you? – but it sits …MORE

The celebs, the glitter, the GLAMOUR • June 4, 2008 • No Comments

At long last, I’m back-back-back on party circuit! Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved writing Dude?, but a girl’s got to slap on some face and get out of the house sometime. Much as I love my jim-jams, they cannot be classed as an ‘outfit’. Last night, I had the honour of rubbing shoulders with …MORE
