The chat show became an overnight sensation. It didn’t matter whether people loved it or hated it, as long as they talked about it and they certainly did that! It made me many enemies: the friends and family members of those I had publicly humiliated were my main detractors, but they were mostly nothings to begin with. They were all given £250 for their time, so what was the big deal?
I was hailed as a true giant after that and no one would ever question my judgement again, or try to usurp my position (for at least another year). Part of me died that night though. But I didn't really care. Life was even better now... There was one incident though that made me question myself.
