Get Staphed

The Steph Show



Reality TV program The Steph Show debuts on Network 10 on Friday, July 28. The Steph Show will follow Neighbours actor Stephanie McIntosh as she tries to launch her singing career.


Not to be confused with:


The Staph Show



Reality TV program unsuccessfully pitched to networks by an enterprising microbiologist earlier this year. The Staph Show was to follow the spread of an outbreak of Staphylococcus aureus, or “Staph”, in a Melbourne hospital.


Don’t get confused, kids.


Staph = A bacterium frequently living on the skin or in the nose that can cause illnesses ranging from minor skin infections (such as pimples and boils) to life-threatening diseases such as pneumonia, meningitis, and septicaemia.

Steph = Soap actress and pop starlet wannabe. May cause bleeding to the ears.






By the way, what's with the offputting overuse of airbrushing in the promo shot? I understand the temptation to smooth a little here, define a little there, but the poor poppet's upper lip has been so altered that she looks like another person - and not a more attractive one. Was she riddled with cold sores on the day of the shoot, or could this be an attempt to make Steph look (as well as sound) as much like Britney as digitally possible? Ahem. Righteo. I can't believe I had to ask.

I must say I am tickled that Steph's "break-out" single is entitled Mistake.

Is that really just the title of the song, or an over-arching term describing her entire pop-career enterprise?

Yes, poor lass.

It really is calling for a one word review, isn't it?

Still, we could soon all be eating the pie that is humble...

Apparently she has Bree's son's gay boyfriend from Desperate Housewives starring as the object of lust. Meanwhile, I didn't notice how much she looked like Brit on the cover until you pointed it out. Then I was all like, yes, it was a mistake to marry K-Fed you poor little strumpet. And I was confused.

Every time her name is mentioned now all I see is an expanse of skin covered in nasty boils. Nasty. Poor girl, she will forevermore be Staph to me.

Thank you. I will now go and vomit.




*I am of course referring to the second picture, not the first. Just in case there was some confusion.
