There is a very good reason why Tapas is my favourite food - I CAN NEVER MAKE MY MIND UP!! So, take me for Tapas and I can choose 5 or 6 different dishes and all will be well - I like to see it as an adventurous nature (as opposed to a pain in the beee hind!!)
I think it means that I'm easily pleased - NON?? It means there are lots of things I like and not just the one! Fickle?? No!! Adventurous? Absolutely… Catch my drift? Can you tell where I’m going with this yet..?
Anyway, so 9 years ago (today!) I was married to my lovely hubby but at the time was working for the BBC and my boss wasn’t keen on me changing my name from Gordon. So I didn’t. But for the following 8 years and after joining QVC, I flirted with the idea.
Last year, having decided I was sick of thinking about it and fed up with signing the wrong surname with the wrong credit card, and who I had told the dentist I was or the hairdresser I was, I thought I’d make it simple and put it all under one name - my married name, Vanderburg.
So here we are one year later celebrating our 9th Wedding Anniversary today. But I decided that Pipa on TV and the radio has been and will always be Pipa Gordon - NONE of us at QVC behind the scenes can get our heads around the name change to Vanderburg. I feel odd to call myself that when I'm working (which you could argue is pretty weird as the rest of the time I have no problem with it) but there you go, call me weird!
So, I've decided to return to Pipa G! And that means QVC, you don’t have to change the name on my dressing room door any longer (it still says Pipa Gordon!)
… but the hair is staying blonde for now! Come on, one change a month is enough isn’t it?
Love Pipa x
