Bookoisseur

I read. I write. I spend all together too much time on the internet. I talk incessantly about books, TV and movies. I write for Hello Giggles, and tweet frequently as Bookoisseur.

I was rewatching The King’s Speech a few days ago and there was this exchange that irked me. Basically Helena Bonham Carter’s young Queen Mum and Timothy Spall’s Winston Churchill are at Balmoral and they are gossiping about Wallis Simpson. Which is fine, except Churchill is all, “I can’t imagine what the King sees in this American woman!” 
And I was like, Churchill would never not know what the King saw in a sophisticated and mesmerizing American divorcee because Churchill’s mother was JENNIE FUCKING JEROME. 
I don’t know why more people aren’t completely obsessed by the fact that Winston Churchill’s mother was a hot Jewish heiress from Cobble Hill who basically seduced and carried on affairs with every important man in Britain in the late 19th/early 20th century. There is a popular rumor that she had a fucking snake tattoo around her wrist! She was BFFs with the wives of her lovers! She pretty much ignored Winston Churchill—who was obsessed with her—until he was like, 20, and then they were like buddies and she gave him political advice.
Like, how would Churchill not get the Wallis Simpson sitch when he was a social climbing American seductress’s son?
Anyway, I have a lot of Jennie Jerome feels and needed to take them to tumblr.
