In a twist on our normal theme of celebrities-who-want-to-be-spanking models, what if spanking models were to be cast in biopics of celebrities-who-have-been-spanked. Who would play who?
Beverly Bacci models for Punished Brats and is the girl behind Pixie on the Philly Edge magazine cover (See That’s Great News! 21.06.07). I think she would be ideal to play the teenage Debbie Boone in a film based on her life story.
In her 1981 biography Debbie Boone: The Story So Far, Debbie, the eldest of the group of singing sisters, recalled the spankings which she received from her father, Pat, right up to the age of nineteen.
Spankings, especially from my father, were not just a perfunctory pat on the behind. He meant for us to remember them and used a slipper, belt, or anything else that stung. The number of whacks on our bare bottoms depended as much on our reaction to being caught as the offense itself. We could expect more if we had lied or talked back.”
Often with tears still fresh in our eyes, the four of us would go up to my room and compare war wounds. Bending over, we’d back up to the mirror to see whose backsides had the reddest marks. Mine were always the worst, mainly because I had the most sensitive skin.
Sounds like just the sort of domestic scenario in which Punished Brats excel to me. In fact, this picture already comes pretty close to recreating the scene described in the second paragraph above.
And Beverly does seem to have the worst marks!
And what about Amelia Jane Rutherford to play Estelle Skorknik?
In an interview in the Daily Mail, the French actress said:
School was like a prison to me and I couldn’t wait to leave. I was a shy girl, I had a real lack of confidence, school seemed to make me worse. My teacher was very strict. She once left our classroom for a few minutes so I went to the front and started imitating her – and she cane back and caught me, put me over her knee, pulled my knickers down, and smacked me in front of the whole class. It was very humiliating.
If this scene were to be brought to life, I think that A-J Rutherford would be perfectly cast as the elegant Skorknik.
Although even The News of the World has so far stopped short of calling for Lindsey Lohan to be beheaded, if the tabloid press had been around in Tudor times, I’m sure that Lady Jane Grey would have received the same sort of headlines as Lindsey, Paris, Britney and co. And probably the same sort of interest from spank fans.
Until recently, it was thought that no portrait had survived of the tragic nine-day Queen who was executed on the orders of Mary l. This miniature painting has now been identified as being of her.
You could say that she was the original spanked celebrity, since her own surviving letters describe the punishments that she received during her upbringing including a reference to “other practices too shameful to describe”.
This has been interpreted by historians as a reference to corporal punishment such as caning or birching on the bare bottom, which was a common practice at the time.
The film Lady Jane(1986) showed a young Helena Bonham-Carter being punished in this manner. It is a scene that made a powerful impression on me. Realistic, ritualistic, severe, bare bottom – it ticked so many boxes.
But I think that Bailey of Real Spanking would make a more convincing Lady Jane Grey look-a-like than Helena Bonham-Carter ever did. Sign her up for the remake immediately.
Finally, do you know who this is?
It’s Juanita Carberry, the girl on whom the story of The Happy Valley is based. You will probably know that Holly Aird played her in the notorious TV production of the 1980s, in which there were four caning scenes. Who could play her in a remake? Well at the moment I’m thinking Nikki Flynn. It would certainly require someone with a high pain threshold to play this role. But perhaps you have better ideas?
In fact, they could do a lot worse than recast Holly Aird who may not be a spanking model, but is still looking gorgeous and highly spankable on our TV screens in Waking the Dead.
As I thought you would be interested to see, she still bares more than a passing resemblance to the teenage Miss Carberry, although she is now aged 38.
