Monday Ramblings on The Saturdays

Hey all! It’s Monday and for a fair amount of people, including myself, who work in education or attend school or college its back to work (Yes I know some of you did go back last week too!) but we are all back now!

After the huge success of ‘What About Us’ in the UK – which just to mention is still Top 10 after 4 weeks now – which is awesome for the girls – it’s all gone a little quiet (In the UK ..) but the girls are bored of just getting UK success and last week flew over to Germany to tempt those Europeans with some UK girl group action. Thanks to Juliane for spotting this article about the girls in Germany (It’s in German, obviously!) and if any of our other European visitors find news/videos/articles that we can post please mail them over to us via @TheSatsCoUk or e-mail (see the social tab at the top of the site!)

In other news, Rochelle says that Marvin is enjoying her pregnancy too! Also is Mollie feeling the singleton-life too much as she wants a ‘Fairy Tale’ wedding.

As I spoke about the other week, our lovely Una has started up a blog with Hello Magazine! You can read it on the Hello Site rather than reproducing the entire blog here.

Hopefully the release of a certain song called ‘Gentleman’ won’t affect the girls rumoured next single of the similar name (they do sound rather different tho!) but more news as we get it on that front.

Also here’s an Interview that the girls did with Capital FM (East Midlands) a few days ago:


Fusion Festival

fusion-festival-birmingham-logo-2

Our girls have been added to a new summer festival taking place over the weekend of August 31st-September 1st at Cofton Park, Birmingham.

Our girls are set to perform on the Sunday – 1st September – which is due to be headlined by Ne-Yo. Other acts on the Sunday include The Wanted, Conor Maynard, Wretch 32 and James Arthur. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 9am, costing between £35-£55 for a day ticket and £90-95 for a weekend ticket to take in both days.

Also our own Una has become a online blogger for Hello Magazine, of which her first blog will be online this Friday 🙂

The girls finally fly over to mainland Europe today, to the traditional stop of Germany. Hopefully the girls can make a name for theirselves in Germany and then (usually) that success flows over the borders to other places such as Belgium, Holland, Spain, Italy etc. then they will become a known name in Europe, so *fingers crossed* any new UK Tour will become a fully-fledged European one! 🙂

We will bring you all the updates from across Europe as we find it, but if you live in Germany and notice we miss something please send it over to us via e-mail (thesatscouk@gmail.com) or via our twitter @TheSatsCoUk and we will post it on the site 🙂


Monday Roundup

Hey TeamSats! Hope your Monday isn’t too bad, I know its Monday but its only a few more days until our favourite day of the week – Saturday of course!!

The latest episode of Chasing The Saturdays aired last night – in the UK – the newest episode airs tonight in the USA at 8.30pm on E! (It’s been moved to Monday nights – make your own reasoning for that one!) remember you can discuss the show with us via twitter @TheSatsCoUk

It’s also all gone a little quiet hasn’t it? The UK release of ‘What About Us’ is only 3 weeks away (scary eh, we thought it would never come around) and obviously its out in the US (on iTunes at least, but the song hasn’t been sent to radio yet?) – anyway hopefully the girls will kick up the UK promo soon. Starting today (obviously) the girls are on BBC Radio 1 with Greg James from 4pm. If there is demand for it we will pop it on the site afterwards 🙂

Not too much news around, Una and Ben attended the premiere of ‘Oz: The Great and the Powerful’ (Which I’m going to see next weekend!) Where they also said they would like more children, but don’t panic, they aren’t in any rush just yet!

The girls also attended the HeartFM Charity Telethon to answer some telephones and raise money for charity.


Una gets angry! Plus dublin gig.

Firstly the girls are playing a special concert in Dublin! They are playing a one-off show at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin, Ireland on March 28, to mark the venue’s 1-year anniversary! All proceeds from the show will go to the society of St Vincent De Paul.

Pre-sale tickets are available now to Bord Gáis Energy Reward Club members, and will be on sale to the public this Friday at 9am from Ticketmaster.

In other news, Una Healy insists she rarely rows with husband Ben Foden, but she does get cross about his messy ways.

Una Healy shouts at her husband when he leaves his dirty clothes on the floor.

The Saturdays singer is married to England rugby player Ben Foden and she insists his most annoying habit is when he uses the floor of their house as a laundry bin.

She moaned: ”We don’t have massive arguments any more. But I get annoyed when I see clothes of his on the floor or he hasn’t made the bed. If you don’t know what I’m like, you might think I’m being aggressive, but he just laughs at me now.”

Una – who has an 11-month-old daughter, Aoife, with Ben – likes to keep her spouse organised so she makes him lists of chores to do when she goes out, however, he doesn’t always follow her instructions.

She told Britain’s OK! magazine: ”I make lists. I say, ‘When I get back you must make sure the bins are left out, because you know they’re only collected every two weeks.’ I come back and the bin is overflowing. The Christmas tree is still in the back, it’s an eyesore.

”I can’t relax until after my lists are done!”

Ben is definitely not a fan of his wife’s lists of jobs but he appreciates her busy demeanour is a good balance to his laid back attitude to life.

He said: ”I give her a bit of grief because she’s so stressed about everything. We’ll have a day off but before we relax she wants to do everything off her mental list. She’s very organised and motivated, whereas I’m lazy and messy! Chalk and cheese.”

Pancakes!

It’s Tuesday, its February it only means one thing, its Pancake day! It’s time to admit how many pancakes you will eat tonight, I shall probably have 2 (or 3) depending on how I feel.
It’s also my first anniversary today, so I’ll use the site to say thank you to those members of TeamSats who have supported me and Rosie since day 1 🙂 We do appreciate all your support.

If you are looking at this through blurry eyes, I do have something that will easily wake you up and instantly make you feel better. Here is our lovely Una, grabbing her guitar and giving us an acoustic (solo) performance of Somebody Else’s Life – how amazing is that?!

The DailyMail (who else) have given their review of Chasing The Saturdays (Episode 4) –  I do find it a little funny that the UK media are just going with the US pacing of the show and not the UK one .. I guess there is a chance the final episode will air near each other but for now, there is a 2 week difference.

OK Magazine are running an ‘exclusive’ on how the love-king helped keep Una and Ben’s proposal a surprise:

Una Healy and Ben Foden have revealed how Mollie King helped plan his surprise proposal and their heartbreak at being away from daughter Aoife Belle.

Speaking exclusively to OK! Magazine, the rugby hunk confessed he ‘conspired’ with The Saturdays to make his secret engagement party as special as possible.
He said: “I’d conspired with Mollie [King]. I’d got the the other girls to wait at my house along with friends and family and it was a complete surprise.”
The romantic couple – who will be celebrating their daughter’s first birthday next month – also opened up about balancing their family life with their work commitments.
Una admitted she was brought to tears the first time she had to leave little Aoife behind, because of her hectic US schedule with her bandmates.
“The first time I’d been apart from her was for a week in New York and I was so down. But we got through it. Absence makes the heart grow fonder,” she added.

Spice up your Sats!

Update: Rochelle has confirmed shes set to appear on a new BBC show called ‘Sweat The Small Stuff’ … more details soon (hopefully)

The girls are featuring in InTouch magazine in the USA, of which Rochelle talks about being compaired to the Spice Girls:

Giving her opinion on what she makes of The Saturdays sizing up with the Spice Girls, she said: ‘To be honest, it’s nothing but a compliment!’

But wanting herself and the girls to be known in their own right she added: ‘It’s amazing to be compared to them, but we’re very different.’

Despite claiming that they are different from the Wannabe singers, that didn’t stop Rochelle from handing out names for Vanessa White, Una Healy, Mollie King and Frankie Sandford.

Failing to give herself a nickname, Rochelle quipped: ‘Vanessa would be Party Spice, I’d say Una would be Feisty Spice, Frankie could be Flirty Spice, and Mollie would be Smiley Spice.’

As The Saturdays continue promotion their new reality TV show Chasing The Saturdays, Vanessa did little to rid her party girl title in the interview with In Touch.

Loving life Stateside,’there aren’t enough pubs’, was the only issue White listed the US as she confessed: ‘I get away with a lot.’

Not missing her spot on the dancefloor beside Vanessa, Una said that since giving birth to her little girl Aoife Belle Foden last March she’d had to slow down.

Healy said: ‘I used to be a party person, but having a hangover with a baby is horrible!’

Hoping to break into the US charts the same way boybands One Directions and The Wanted have, Frankie spoke a little about the girls’ relationship with the teen heartthrobs.

Clarifying that they share a family type union, Sandford said: ‘They’re like our brothers.

She joked: ‘When girls are screaming at them, we’re like, “Really?!” They’re just stinky boys to us!’

Also, a lot of people have asked for this, here is the video of Una and Ben on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire that aired last month:


Una, Mollie, Globes and more!

Can you keep up with all this news? It’s like story after story! I’m taking a deep breathe and heading in!

Competiton Alert! Check out the link on the right to win a Motel Rocks playsuit as worn by Vanessa and Rochelle! You simply just retweet the tweet we’ve linked to! The more RTs the more chance of winning. Simple as pie!

Firstly the girls performed ‘What About Us’ for the first time on TV last night on Jay Leno. The video will be on the site shortly when I get my HD copy. If you rummage around youtube and the like you will probably find it now, but our copy is coming soon, and hopefully in 1080i HD 🙂 Keep an eye on our Twitter @TheSatsCoUk for when its ready.

We also have the breaking news this morning that Una is a slob! Una has been speaking to WeLovePop (check out some pictures below)

”Now I’m a mum, when I’m at home I have no make up on, sick everywhere and I dress like a slob – it’s just tracksuit bottoms, hoodies and I wear my hair on top of my head. It’s totally different to when I’m at work and getting glammed up by a team of people.”

Mollie has given five suitcases, no not a typo, suitcases of clothes for the Hurricane Sandy victims. Again talking to WeLovePop, Mollie said:

“Everyone took about three or four cases and I took five. I got a huge fine. I gave everything I didn’t wear to the Hurricane Sandy appeal in New York, which meant I could fill the empty cases with new stuff on my return! Everyone wins!”

I’ve added some pictures below of the girls performing at the Golden Globes party and from WeLovePop magazine, we will no doubt have some HQs in the gallery soon 🙂
