Metro magazine has named Outrageous Fortune‘s Cheryl West as Woman of the Year in its 2008 Best of Auckland Awards (as featured in the December 2007 issue).
The magazine said: “Okay, we know Cheryl isn’t, you know, a real person. But as far as we’re concerned the Outrageous Fortune character, played by Robyn Malcolm, proves there is such a thing as Westie Civilisation. She’s the unpretentious, stoic linchpin of a typical dysfunctional Auckland family. She’s been cheated on and survived. Tough and self reliant, she’s a great expression of Auckland independence. And yes, she still looks sizzling in a pair of jeans. What can we say but: Westside Forever!”
