Lise on the far left? No wonder that bloke is protecting her from her evil future employer.
Se og Hør is reporting - and psuedo-royal mouthpiece Billed Bladet is repeating - that Madam La Comtesse de Hairy Sweaty Pits has found a replacement to play the underpaid, overworked, unappreciated role of Lady's Maid to Her Bogan Lowliness. Lise Møller Jensen was found in the same spot as Tina Jørgensen was back in 2004: the theatre costume shop for Linie 3.
Linie 3 is a comedy review troupe that the royals have patronised for years. Henrik in particular is a fan of their particularly Danish humour. No wonder Yrma never attends their shows! She can't speak the language or understand humour, subtle or brazen!
One of Linie 3's stars is Preben Kristensen, the husband to Mary's hair sculptor/weave master/bump-it wrangler Søren Hedegaard. It's all in the family. Søren probably introduced Madam to Lise at Tina's funeral and set the plot rolling. Helle's in those funeral photies, too, and so what sort of courtesan role does she play here in the negotiations? Does she represent MoreMore's interests in the great hall during her meeting with Søren's theatre agents as they come up with an agreement and his finder's fee? Shades of Anja's money-making intervention with Queen Ingrid's rubies!
Pity poor Lise. Had a nice comfy job for the past 25 years working in the wardrobe department of a successful and fun band of theatre pros, and now has been tapped (with her voluntary agreement?) to be - in addition to the official role of wardrobe mistress - the royal cleaner-upper, wipe-up-after-er, poo-cleaner, and lead nanny for four undisciplined and spoiled children whose self-esteem and worth will be crippling if she doesn't handle them well enough to counter the influences of More-y Antoinette's narcissistic personality and the Derfman's addictive behaviours. Given how notoriously bad the royal house pays its employees, is this even a lateral move salary-wise? She's basically giving up a career in theatre ... what am I saying? She's continuing a career in theatre! This time with real life actors and lots of baby poo!
Good luck, Lise. Just pray they don't hatch the Desparation Miracle Triplets.
