She’s finally done it. This week sees Jaquie wake up in celebrity rehab in the second season conclusion of The Jaquie Brown Diaries, screening on Friday, December 11th at 9:30pm on 3.
“Celebrity rehab is exactly what it sounds like,” Jaquie Brown explains when faced with the question ‘what exactly is celebrity rehab?’. “It’s a special place that celebrities go to detox, unwind, and escape the pressures of fame. Think Yoga at dawn, group therapy sessions and trust games.”
Brown says that like many celebrities, the series finale sees her character in serious denial about her issues, especially those surrounding arch nemesis Serita Singh (Madeleine Sami).
“Sometimes they [celebrities] go willingly [to celebrity rehab] other times they are sent because their behaviour is so out of control they need help,” she explains.
“That’s how Jaquie ends up in rehab. After losing her job, losing Tom (Ryan Lampp) to Serita and being publicly humiliated she goes on a massive booze and drugs bender which sees her mix with some unsavoury characters that lead her astray. Kim (Hannah Banks) knows the only way to get Jaquie to see straight is to send her to rehab.”
While Jaquie enters rehab and her therapist tries to cure her of her mental instabilities, Kim uncovers some disturbing secrets about Serita. Brown explains these secrets will vastly contradict the innocent and wholesome image Serita has so far portrayed.
“I don’t think anyone saw it coming, not Kim, not Tom and not Jaquie,” she says of the revelations, adding; “Well maybe Jaquie. Well, me Jaquie, I did because I read the scripts ages ago.”
She does however say that despite her character’s suspicions, doubts, and mistrusts towards Serita, not even Jaquie (the characters) could have predicted the dozey that’s going to come out in the season finale.
She’s [Jaquie the character] always found Serita to be a thorn in her side but her motivation has been selfish,’ she explains. “Now we can see that perhaps Jaquie wasn’t so wrong to mistrust Serita after all.”
This certainly sounds juicy… Make sure not to miss the secret that’s going to turn the C-grade celebrity world of The Jaquie Brown Diaries upside down when the series concludes its second season on Friday, December 11th at 9:30pm on 3.
