Kath & Kim

So ladies, for your new film you’ve been to Italy, how were the Italian men?
Kim: Do you get Jersey Shore there?
Kath: It’s Geordie Shore!
Kim: Well they were loike that, they were like those guys in that show, but oh no, Geordie Shore, no it’s different, I can’t do that, you go mum… [laughs]
Kath: Well the guys wouldn’t leave us alone, which is funny cos my peronomes do things to guys. Yeah it was ciao bella here, ciao bella there, I had to tell ‘em “Okay, per so-no Jose” which means “no way Jose” in Italian. Because they’re all over me like the proverbial rash.
Kim: There was an upside, I got my bum pinched. But the downside was I got my bum-bag pinched, which had my passport and favourite lipgloss in it. Yeah, that didn’t work so well.
Did they like your hair?
Kim: Which part? The hair on my head? Or….
Kath: They like a gurl with curly hair and not just on her head. And they like blondes because they’re nice, different and unusual over there. They don’t have a lot of fair haired pretty perms going on.
Did Sharon [Kim’s second best friend] have much luck as well?
Kim: No, she didn’t with the guys, she seemed to get a bit of interest from the Italian ladies, I don’t know why.
Kath: She was jumping everyone’s bones, as is Sharon’s want. She does tend to go like a bull in a China shop – literally – when she meets guys. And gurls. But we won’t say whether she got lucky or not in the end because that might ruin the story.
Are you both still smoking? ?
Kim: I’m smoking hot. I tell you what, no hypnosis is going to get rid of that.
Kath: Are you saying we still smoke now?
Kim: You smoke, mum! Mum pretends she doesn’t smoke and she hides her fags up on the… you know, the smokes in the cupboard.
Kath: No, Kel [Kath’s fine-meat-purveyoring husband] doesn’t know, so you’ve got to keep it quiet cos I always put my rubber gloves on to smoke to keep the smell away, I don’t like the smell. And I have to have a shower after every cigarette, so it’s almost not worth it. Almost.
