My best friend ran off with my son... story in the Sunday Mirror

Fourth deal for interviewees who appear in Real People mag

My son ran off with my best friend” – Natasha Dodds’ story appears in REAL PEOPLE magazine… Cradle Snatcher story in Real People

After appearing in the SUNDAY MIRROR newspaper, BELLA magazine and on ITV THIS MORNING, we are thrilled that Natasha’s story has once again made the front page this week of REAL PEOPLE.

Natasha contacted Featureworld, which specialises in placing peoples’ real life stories in multiple deals through the world, after son Nicky, now 20 and her best friend Sasha, now 40, fell in love.

She and Sasha fell out for about a year after she discovered their affair – but when the pair had a baby, the three were reunited.

This story goes to show that it isn’t always – as many people wrongly believe – miserable stories that make news! The appeal of this story lay in the fact that Natasha, Sasha and Nicky had made up. It showed that whatever happens in life, it really is too short to spend it not speaking with loved ones you’ve had a tiff with.

Had the three not sorted out their differences, then they all would have missed out. Nicky wanted his mum to be there for him, Sasha and Natasha have got back their old friendship and Natasha dotes on grandson Carlton. So result all round!

Natasha said: “Selling our story has been a wonderful shared experience. It has been a once in a lifetime thing to do. We particularly enjoyed going on This Morning. It was very nerve-wracking but everyone was lovely.”
