“Piers Morgan has led tributes to socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, who has died at the age of 45. The TV personality and former ‘It girl’ was found dead at her south west London home on 8 February. She had recently been battling a brain tumour. Remembering Palmer-Tomkinson, Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan tweeted: ‘RIP Tara Palmer Tomkinson, 45. A fun, feisty woman who battled many demons. Very sad news.’”
English socialite, television presenter, model and charity patron as well as newspaper and magazine columnist—although “contributor” is perhaps a better word, she phoning in reports of her weekend which ghostwriters then would type up, as was similarly her novel, Inheritance. And endlessly on “oops” active duty which perhaps explains US editor-at-large for Mail Online, ex News of the World and Mirror editor Piers’ fondness. But no, she has not “the Windsor nanny” as can found tagged on many a topless shot and like Zsa Zsa Gabor her fame for being famous was as much our choice preference as hers. Indeed, she could play the piano, and at a level of ability performing with the National Symphony Orchestra and for tributes and dignitaries at the Royal Albert Hall in London and at The Coliseum in Rome.
And a muse she was for those remodernist anti-postmodernist anti-art-for-art Stuckists (Wikipedia), as was anyone else that was opportune, whether they liked it or not.
