Tara talks about her life right now (dailymail.co.uk):

Quote:
Tara Palmer-Tomkinson: I told love-split Kate that William would come running back

She’s the former socialite turned novelist who’s putting the ‘it’ into ‘lit’. Tara Palmer-Tomkinson tells Jane Gordon about her ‘super-hot’ new housemate, having her heart broken and hanging out with the Duchess of Cambridge

When Prince William and Kate Middleton suddenly separated in 2007, the split was the subject of fevered speculation. But socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson has revealed that she comforted Kate at the time and reassured her that William would be back ‘once he realised what he was missing’.

Ms Palmer-Tomkinson, 40, a close friend of the now Duchess of Cambridge and Princes William and Harry, said she offered Kate support when people were 'being horrible' to her.

She arrives for our photo shoot just a little breathless, clutching a Chanel handbag in one hand and a Carluccio’s sandwich in the other. Engaging, funny, ‘secretly clever’ (as she puts it) and perhaps a little too honest for her own good, Tara insists that these days she is more of a recluse than a socialite. Single – but currently sharing her London base with ‘super dude’ Bobby Sabel, 25 (model and former Celebrity Big Brother contestant) – she opens up about her new nose, her devotion to the Duchess of Cambridge, the creative secrets behind her new novel Infidelity, and the release of an accompanying downloadable ‘soundscape’ album Music From and Inspired by Infidelity.

I am very childlike – I don’t feel 40. But then I was lost in space for 13 years and if you subtract those years I am still in my 20s. Besides, I am still buying Clearasil spot cream for teenagers. When I stop needing that maybe I will start worrying about ageing.

I don’t have Botox any more. These days my forehead moves up and down of its own accord and there are lines around my eyes. I think lines are hallmarks of your history and something to be proud of, and I really, really like mine.

I am secretly quite clever; I have a very good memory. I love the classics – I read The Iliad and The Odyssey last year and I can still recite 800 lines of Shakespeare from when I played Viola at school. When I was younger I did look into drama school. But then I suppose you could say I have been acting a lot in my life. It’s been quite a big stage and I have been standing on it for about ten years.

I have always been very affected by what people write about me and it came to a point last year where I felt I was being persecuted on a very personal level, about my face and my behaviour. When people rubbish me I feel rubbish, and that is when I am at my most vulnerable. I felt like saying, ‘What exactly is the end game that you want here, because I am a recovering addict trying to do my best and you seem to be trying to demolish me in such a negative way?’ But it ain’t going to work; I am not going back to my old ways because I am over it. I have never felt stronger in myself or more capable.

I am more of a recluse than a party girl these days. I hold my hand up to those terrible pictures of me coming out of The Box [nightspot] last year in a dishevelled state, but I had only gone out because I had been working so hard and my friends were accusing me of being a recluse.
I said to myself, ‘Right, I am going to go out and sink a few drinks.’ I actually booked the next day out of my diary for a hangover. But when I went to get my bag at the end of the evening, I accidentally put my hand into some broken glass and cut my finger. I was completely shaken because there was so much blood. I thought I had injured myself so severely that I wouldn’t be able to play the piano – I play for three hours every day and music is very important to me.

My whole headspace changes with music. I definitely think it’s the new Nurofen in my life – it’s very therapeutic. I don’t like to take anything any more if I have a headache – I use Tiger Balm and things like that, and music is the best release for me. Much better than the gym. I spent the best part of two years – under an assumed name – working on creating the music that accompanies the book and I am really proud of it.
Tara Palmer-Tomkinson

I am a serious person and I do have my dark moments. It annoys me that when you are going through a dark time – say, when you have split up with your boyfriend – people always immediately try to make you feel better. I have always thought, ‘Why do I have to feel better? I am indulging it and sometimes you have to work things through.’ I think that those dark times are the moments when you get to really know yourself, and I know myself pretty well by now.

I don’t diet; I eat everything except eyeballs
. My father doesn’t like women who don’t eat. At home the rule was that a woman should always have a smile on her face at meal times. I have always eaten lots. I don’t weigh myself; I gauge my weight by whether I can get into my clothes or not. I am about nine stone or just under.

It’s not that great being thin, whatever anyone thinks. It’s not like I could slip on a bikini and go on a beach and look like a supermodel. I have a muscular body and I am also quite like a boy. I have been tempted to have implants – I gave my heroine in the book the breasts I have always wanted – but until I am with a guy who says ‘Give me a pair of big breasts’ I am not going to bother. You get to my age and you are used to it. I like me now.

I was sent to boarding school when I was tiny – seven or maybe just eight – and I couldn’t stand it. I was unbelievably homesick; I don’t think I stopped crying for the first three months. My parents didn’t know because they don’t let you home for the first term – it’s quite tough. When I was in rehab in the US they were really shocked by that and put my parents down for abandonment. But I never blamed my parents because I knew they were just trying to give me the best start.

I have very high standards and expectations of marriage because I have grown up in a family that doesn’t do divorce – my parents have a very good marriage and so do my brother James and my sister Santa who is married to author and historian Simon Sebag Montefiore. I think one of the reasons I have steered clear of marriage is that I have seen so much infidelity around me in the past ten years. If you are a single girl you get to hear everything and it’s been a revelation to see the way husbands behave when their wives aren’t around.

I used to think of myself as Miss Havisham in Great Expectations, who never recovered from being jilted. A long time ago I was in love with somebody and the break-up hit me really badly because, sadly, I truly believed that he was The One. It was like coming across another kid in the playground who wanted to do the things I did – travel, shop or whatever – and at the end of it we would just want to sit watching DVDs, eating chicken and sweetcorn soup.

When I was younger I thought that marriage was the answer to everything. But then I became fulfilled in so many other ways. I think now I definitely have a problem with commitment. I don’t like anyone getting too close to the real me. I know some girls who want their boyfriends to take care of them, but that just isn’t me. I am a control freak – I practically have to fly the damn plane, and I hate being a guest in someone else’s house. I want to be running the show.

I absolutely hate it when anyone says that I am jealous of my sister Santa. She is two years older than me and the only time in my life when I was jealous was when she was going out with boys and I wasn’t. We love each other and depend on each other. I am so proud of her accomplishments, her marriage, her children and her brilliant novels.

Bobby [Sabel, her housemate] is very like me – it’s spooky. Sometimes you come across people who seem insanely familiar. He is like my long-lost twin brother. We are very easy with each other, even though I am 15 years older. I think he brings out the maternal side in me – I find myself tidying his room, making sure he has his favourite things in the fridge and worrying when he gets home late. There was never any romance between us but it does help that he is super-hot looking. I have always liked beautiful things in my house and he is a beautiful boy.

The only surgery I have had has been for medical reasons. The operation on my nose was a medical thing – the surgery I had done in 2006 was performed using delicate cartilage from my ear and since then I have had several breakages and fragmentations that needed correcting. I nearly shut my nose in a door the other day. It was the first time I had really banged it since the operation. I keep forgetting it’s a bit bigger now. It’s a bit like having a bigger car, it’s difficult to park. But I am really pleased with it because it was becoming so personal with all that media coverage.

The Duchess of Cambridge is fab, isn’t she? She is doing such a good job. She is beautiful and capable, sort of super-grounded, but really fun too. I first met her ages ago at Klosters and I always thought she and William were so good together. We have had lots of fun nights in relaxed situations and when they briefly split up I said to her, ‘He’ll be back, don’t worry.’ She and her sister Pippa came to my brother’s book launch during the split and people were being kind of horrible to her, but I knew William would be back as soon as he realised what he was missing out on. I think she has done something amazing – I am really proud of her. Whenever I see her on the cover of another magazine I smile. She reminds me of his mother – something about her eyes.

William, Harry and me – we grew up together. They are lovely, naughty boys. There is a complete code of trust there, a code that says, ‘Zip it and treasure it’. I have a thing about trust: it is priceless.

I dictated Infidelity – which is the sequel to my first novel Inheritance – on to a Dictaphone. I would say something like, ‘She walks into the house and it smells of dogs mixed with Jo Malone candles’ – that sort of thing, very much on sense and smell and very detailed. I would literally act out the parts and then Claire Irvin – who worked on this with me – would transcribe it all into a scene and then send it back to me to look at. It would go back and forth between us like that until it was right.

My mother [Patti] doesn’t just read my books, she edits them. She is a ruthless editor. I wouldn’t say she is as much of a flirt as the fictional mother in Infidelity but she’s still definitely got it going on. I talk to her pretty much every day. My family is a massive backbone for me, a massive fortress of support.

I think we are all a little bit bipolar. If everyone were to fill in the form we would all tick some of the boxes that would confirm it. But I come from a family where you have to break both your legs or fall off a mountain to get any sympathy. So the only reaction I would get if I went home and said, ‘I am bipolar’ would be, ‘Shut up, no one cares, get on with it.’

I have absolutely no desire for a child. I love my nephews and nieces – my brother has four children and my sister has two. It’s fun being with them and because I am invested in their lives I don’t miss having children in my life. The last thing I want to be doing is changing nappies – I’m not that sort of person. I would much rather have Snowy – my Dior toy polar bear that goes everywhere with me – than a baby. Between my nephews and nieces and Snowy and the supermodel living in my house, I think I am doing pretty well.

I don’t have any ‘one-day-my-prince-will-come-and-we’ll-live-happily-ever-after’ dreams.
I don’t have any dreams about my future any more. I have done every dream and they turned into nightmares. I live in the present now – I don’t look forward and I don’t look back.
