The other week DIVA pondered the top ten women we'd most like to
live a day in the life of. This week the tables have turned. We've
been wondering, which women would totally transform your lives if
they lived in your shoes for just a week?
Think of them as your personal assistants, jumping into your
lives for seven days to tidy up whilst you go on a luxury break to
a remote island of your choice. Sit back, relax and let the celebs
do the hard work for you…
We know Bette isn't real, but a girl can dream. Not only is she
drop-dead gorgeous, but this affluent art connoisseur is totally
unstoppable. Remember in season one when she fights off protesters
outside the CAC art gallery? Sure she ends up in jail, but even
that doesn't dampen her spirits. Add a bit of Bette to your life
and she could bag you samples from up and coming artists to impress
your friends with. You could even sell them on eBay and make a tidy
profit on your return! What's more, nobody messes with Bette. If
your boss has been piling on the work then hand the task over to
Miss Porter and she'll have everything straightened out in a
As Alan Sugar's right-hand woman Karren Brady knows how to
please the toughest of customers. She has conquered not just
one-trick ponies, but fields of ponies, (as Apprentice contestant
Stuart Baggs would say). Karren is also a highly successful
businesswoman in her own right and a board member for Arcadia
Group, owners of Top Shop. Choose Karren to makeover your life and
you'll return rich, successful and perhaps she'll even lend you the
blueprints to her next business venture.

Need to break up with your girlfriend? Anne could save you the
hassle and end it with a simple 'goodbye'. She's fearless and won't
let silly things like manners get in her way in her effort to
resolve your life's worries. Why not set her on your parents-in-law
whilst you're at it?
Kim and Aggie
How clean is your house? If last week's takeaway leftovers are
still looming in the fridge then it might be time to call in Kim
and Aggie. The situation's looking pretty desperate, so we'll let
you keep them both for a week. Think of them as your
two-for-the-price-of-one personal maids.
Dragon Deborah Meaden is feisty when it comes to bagging a deal.
With her top-notch negotiation skills you could come home to some
cut-price designer bargains and exclusive business plans. But
Deborah has more to her than meets the eye and is an ambassador for
wildlife charities WWF and Tusk. So it's a relief to know your
pooch will be in good hands with Deborah whilst you're
Named twice in recent lists of top 100 most influential women,
Suze Orman promises to take charge of your finances. Whilst you're
whisked away to a desert island, Suze will whip your bank balance
into shape. You'll return wealthy, inspired and successful. She
even has her own range of credit cards!
She may look innocent, but the Queen actually wields the power
to declare war or dismiss the Prime Minister, and she's the
official commander of the armed forces. Think of her like your Nan,
but with a lot more power. Her assistants could finish your
ironing, cleaning and hoovering, meanwhile Ma'am could bake you a
nice fruitcake. You might even get to meet the corgis!
Best known for playing Miranda in Sex and the City, Cynthia
would have the fridge fully stocked with cosmopolitans ready for
your return. Perhaps you could brush shoulders with some Hollywood
stars at your welcome home party. Sarah Jessica Parker might let
you snoop through her wardrobe. And if you stay in contact then
that's free trips to New York bagged for life!
Xena Warrior Princess
The Hercules of all women, Xena is both a warrior and a
princess. Who better to house watch whilst you're away? She'll
defend your home from danger and fight off unwanted cold callers
for good. We can't help but think that your house could get a
little messy in the process though.
She can speak French (sort of), has shameless fashion sense and
is now the plus size editor of Vogue Paris. Such talent could
transform your life and your wardrobe. We've also heard she has a
soft spot for frogs. So let her kiss her way through the froggy,
green ones to find you your prince(ss) charming.
