When some people meet their future life-partner it’s love at first sight. For others, it’s a mixture of thinking their “hot” but not quite being sure about them.
This week we learned ‘Jackie O’ Henderson is firmly in the latter category, with her an on-air reading of her 17-year-old diary revealing all her thoughts and feelings from her first meetings with now-husband Lee Henderson.
Jackie decided to let her co-host Kyle Sandilands read aloud extracts from her diaries for the listening pleasure of their KIIS FM Kyle and Jackie O Show audience.
On Monday the radio host began with an oh-so-relatable entry from March 18, 2000, when Jackie was 25 years old and out with a friend named Tash at Sydney bar, Blue Room.
“So we’re about to leave, and it’s like everything around me went quiet and the whole room came to a standstill. I saw gorgeous Lee across the room,” Kyle said, using a particularly insulting voice to portray Jackie.
“He was the guy I met, what, about a month ago at the Good Bar? He was so hot. But really, really a slow mover.”
Jackie wrote that then-24-year-old Lee again took his time, coming over “about an hour later” and buying her and her friend a drink.
