One of Malta’s most recognisable faces has finally revealed the backstory for possibly the most important publicly-delivered shout-out in Malta, ever.
When Eileen Montesin hosted the opening of Malta’s carnival back in 2006, she was making small talk about the weather before suddenly pointing at someone in the crowd and shouting “ara Doris, hello!”
But who was this Doris, and why did she get such a critical call in front of everyone?
In a new English-speaking interview with MT Lifestyle, Montesin finally reveals who Doris is.
“Doris is from Għaxaq,” Montesin explains. “Doris is a mother of three children who today are grown ups, but I’ve known her for many years, and she always abided by what her children did and decided, whatever it was.”
“She simply adored her children, and I always said if I had to be a mum, I would be like her.”
Doris’ love for her children and interesting parenting techniques had inspired Montesin with her own family, and she went on to say Doris is a “dear friend who I really admire”.
Beyond the Doris origin story, Montesin touches upon other key moments from her career in the interview, including a big trip up on live air involving Nate Darmanin.
