‘Ladies of London’ Star Caroline Stanbury Talks Snooki, Etiquette and Fishwives… Oh My!

By: Kendall Fisher / July 21, 2014

If you’re not a Ladies of London fan, it’s about time you tune in… If for no other reason than to learn a thing or two about how to be a real lady (according to British standards) and to catch some hilarious British-American drama.

I had the opportunity of sitting down with the lady of all ladies Caroline Stanbury–the fan favorite of the show–who talked to me about everything from the cultural differences between American and British women to mingling with royals to crowning Snooki the worst potential Brit in the world.

Finally, I needed to find out a little bit more about the lingo in England.  I hear the London-raised women on the show use phrases like “knickers in a twist,” “cow” and “fishwife.”  I’ve never heard any of these terms before, so I asked Caroline to help break them down for us.  In fact, I was completely caught off guard by the phrase “fanny” which has an entirely different meaning in Britain than it does in the US (beware!).

You can get to know Caroline a little bit more by checking out her website The Gift Library and make sure to catch the season finale of Ladies of London tonight at 10/9c on Bravo!
