|BRIDGET KISSES COLIN FIRTH, who we're all supposed to refer to as Mark Darcy even though we picture Colin Firth in the necking scenes. Or is it just me?|
Spoiler Alert: Jesus Christ, lady, did you have to kill off Darcy?!
So apparently there's a third instalment of Bridget Jones' Diary on the way. How do you top the best chick lit ever? Well, if you're Helen Fielding, you let poor Bridge finally break her losing streak by marrying the love of her life and then you immediately have him killed. Haha! Two babies and a widow! Doesn't that sound like a knee-slapper? Having said that, I have to admit I'd read the heck out of that book. Bridget on her own with two little runny-nosers will be a lot more interesting than Bridget adjusting to married life, which I personally find so goddam boring I harpooned everything even remotely resembling a romantic relationship in the past just to avoid it. Well that — plus nobody's asked. :-(
EDITOR'S NOTE: I heard Mad About the Boy hasn't even been released yet and already people are screaming at Fielding for killing off Colin Firth.
MY NOTE: These people do realize this is fiction, right?
