Samantha Brick - a real Mean Girl

I’m sure you’ve probably already read umpteen posts/news articles about Samantha Brick by now but I also wanted to get my two cents in. For those of you who don’t know who I’m talking about, Samantha Brick has proclaimed that women hate her because she’s beautiful.

Now while I would expect this sort of this ‘plastic’ bitchiness from a bunch of high school girls – I find it sad and worrying that a 41 year old woman has stooped this low. I don’t think there is anything wrong with having confidence about your looks but I think Sam has used her looks as an excuse; for not getting promoted and not being able to keep close girlfriends. She’s never been asked to be a bridesmaid, probably because the brides were worried that she would struggle not to be the centre of attention. On one hand she says she’s flirted to get ahead at work, then says her female bosses have been jealous of her.

Perhaps under closer scrutiny she just wasn’t up to the job and her female colleagues called her on it because clearly flirting didn’t work with them. As for getting her cab fares paid, handed flowers, and free drinks this has happened to me too luv, and I assume it was nothing more than a stranger being generous with his money rather than mistaking me for a super model.

Maybe someone needs to get all of her ex-friends, colleagues, and bosses together in a gymnasium and ask them to raise their hand if they’ve ever been personally victimised by Samantha Brick.

So what say you ladies and gents – am I being harsh or should we feel sorry for Sam?

    I was floored when I read that article! And I agree, there’s nothing wrong with being confident in your appearance, but using that as a tool I think is crossing a line.

      Hey Kelly – she really doesn’t help other women does she? I feel like she’s set us behind 50 years! Thanks for you comment. xoxo

    lol! I read that article.. there’s a fine line between being humble and confident, and proud and haughty. She not only crossed it, but did the boogie and finished off with the splits. I definitely don’t feel sorry for her – her attitude brought it upon herself. In fact, said attitude is disgusting (and that’s not counting the flaunting to get ahead at work) – and it doesn’t help that she doesn’t really fall on everyone’s standard of beauty anyway.

      Yes beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder and I think if you are going to make sweeping statements about how attractive you are you better have the proof to back it up! :D

    I totally agree! I know women like that. They think that all women hate them because we’re jealous, but really…it’s because they act like they are super entitled and are stuck up and mean to us! It has nothing to do with their looks, just their attitudes.

      Unfortunately I think we all know women like that I stay well clear. I worked with this girl who said that she should be treated like a Princess because she was so fabulous and this was a grown woman who had a child! xoxo

    I laughed and laughed when I read the article. I thought she was really delusional…I have friends who are much, much prettier and they are nowhere as arrogant as she is! Maybe she has no female friends due to her behaviour,,not her so called good looks.

      Hi Hani – Glad I’ve given you a good giggle. I have friends who are much prettier too and they don’t go around telling me how grand they are otherwise I wouldn’t be friends with them! xoxo

    Erm, what am I missing here? Yes, she is a pleasant enough looking woman, but hardly a “beauty” in my opinion. A regular miss Average, who could probably be seen as very pretty if she had a nice personality, and I can’t really see that to be the case lol.

    The whole story is a bit laughable. I have worked in both male dominated and female dominated environments, and I have yet to see a woman disliked for doing her very best to look good. The ones constantly tottering about tooting their own horns however, don’t exactly excel at making friends. I suspect this is the root of her problem.

    There is a huge difference between confidence and arrogance, and she needs to read up on it methinks.

    Completely agree with what Hani said.

      I can also say hand on heart that I’ve never ‘hated’ someone because they were attractive. Jealous a little maybe but it wouldn’t stop me from being friends with them unless they were like Sam. I think as beauty bloggers we celebrate each other’s looks which just goes to show she is definitely delusional! :D

      Oh Von Von so am I! Even my ex sent me an email asking if he was missing something because he said he wouldn’t notice her in the street if she walked by! xoxo

    Haha I LOVE this post, it’s so true!

    There is a line between having a bit of self confidence and needing your head pulled out from your own backside!

      I guess it’s no coincidence that she lives in rural France otherwise she’d get lynched! :D

    The irony is that she put out this ridiculous story and now the world is slamming her ‘good looks’. Her & her husband’s egos must be having alternating anxiety attacks. LOL
