This article was inspired by Tumblr account BabeTV, who’s writer was an avid admirer and long-time fan of the babe shows. Some of the quotes in this article about Dani O’Neal have been taken directly from his Tumblr.
When it comes to Babestation legends, you can’t even begin the conversation without mentioning the First Lady of Babestation, Miss Dani O’Neal. Having first joined Babestation in its infancy in 2003, Dani had a hand in catapulting Babestation TV to the forefront of people’s minds. By the time she hung up her heels, the only people in the UK who didn’t know of the existence Babestation were either nuns, monks, or liars (usually the latter). This excerpt from BabeTV’s Tumblr perfectly explains the role of Dani O’Neal in the making of Babestation:
“It would be silly to claim that all of Babestation’s success was down to Dani O’Neal, but without her, the story could have been very different, and it’s very widely acknowledged that she was the first babe to really take Babestation out of the backwaters, give it an ‘OMG’ factor, and put it well and truly on the radar.”
He’s correct! It’s pretty easy these days to lose sight of the significance of what Dani did back in the spring of 2003. Fast forward to 2020 and the babe shows are pretty commonplace and the new models joining know what to expect in terms of public reaction. But in the early 2000s, the concept of phone sex taking place on live, unencrypted UK television was totally new. BabeTV’s Tumblr continues:
“Not only was [the babe show format] technically untenable as a programming type, it was also at high risk of adverse public reaction. Dani O’Neal wasn’t entering into this new situation on her own, but it’s well acknowledged that she was the lead boundary-pusher, taking things deepest into uncharted territory.”
When you think about the full scope of what Dani did it makes her title of ‘First Lady of Babestation’ a massive understatement. Dani O’Neal isn’t just a glamour veteran and stellar performer. This curvy brunette babe with the big boobs is recognised as the first ever model to put a full-strength, interactive, live adult entertainment show onto free-to-air British TV. Once word of Dani’s naughty shows spread across the nation, Babestation TV was on the road to the big time where it has remained for the past 17 years.
