Lynne Franks is the world’s best known PR guru. She is the inspiration for AbFab’s Edina Monsoon, having famously once told its creator and client Jennifer Saunders: “I’m chanting as we speak.”
Saunders says she based the uber fabulous Edina on Franks, and although this PR powerhouse was non too pleased in how she was portrayed in the series at the beginning, and in fact refused a guest part on one episode, she now loves it, and totally embraces her inner AbFab.
In Rob Goldstone’s latest podcast interview, he talks with Franks about her work as not just a publicist and a TV celebrity, but her all important work as a women’s empowerment advocate.
From creating London Fashion Week, to best selling author of The Seed Handbook, to the jungle of television’s “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!” Lynne Franks has been on the zeitgeist of popular culture for decades, so let’s all enjoy an episode of Absolute Fabulosity.
