Cherie Blair - My Fake Diary
Tuesday, 21 August 2007
Got a call in the morning from a very stupid woman asking if I would attend an AIDS fundraiser in New York next week. I said I'd be happy to as long as the payment clears before the event. She actually asked "What payment?" I had to explain to this obviously thick lady that I was referring to my standard fee of $100,000 for US speaking engagements.
The moron then actually had the nerve to say "We don't pay our speakers. They give of their time for a good cause and they make a donation." I had to explain to this obviously uneducated woman that I am the wife of a former world leader and my time doesn't come cheap!
The creature then actually raised her voice at me - ME! - and said "Sorry but we are a charity and we don't have the resources to pay you $100,000. We rely on the goodwill of high profile speakers to speak at our fundraisers so that we attract wealthy guests who will pay large sums to attend, thereby raising money for our charity." I had to raise my voice at this obviously loony left wing liberal and tell her the only reason she even has the privilege to speak to me is because my husband saved the world!
And with that I hung up and went shopping. Tony and I have a dinner invitation from Rupert Murdoch and there's no way I can go wearing the pair of Manolo Blahniks I bought last week. Too old!
