Valleywag: Nope, erm, it’s not Diana after all

Well this one fizzled. You know that story where Nick Denton of Valleywag said he’d found Princess Diana? Well, they sent someone in to pull off her burka, and whoops — Nick got it wrong. Turns out it was a woman named Sherrie Robinson who is originally from New Zealand but now lives in Qatar and works in marketing for a telecom company and does some part-time acting on the side. See here. I guess you can see how they made the mistake. There is an uncanny resemblance. Just goes to show, you can’t believe everything you read, even in high-class sites like Nick Denton’s Valleywag. Nick Denton, who is British but lives in New York, is 42 years old.
