United States of Motherhood: Samantha Brick Needs a Brick to That Ego of Hers

Samantha Brick Needs a Brick to That Ego of Hers

I usually am not part of the mob that hate on woman on the internet. I am not. I hate cyberbulling. I've been a victim at times and it is not fun. Not fun at all.

Heck, I even felt slightly bad for OctoMom finally admitting today on the Today Show she was on public assistance--something she claimed she would never do when she had her irresponsible litter of babies. She was ashamed. Yes, my friends, I felt compassion. She looked broken. She is posing scantily clad for magazines to pay her mortgage. Karma got her good.

However guess who I don't feel compassion for? Women begging for attention, any attention, and who then are shocked that the attention is not positive. Women so self-involved they trip over others shouting, "Look at me!" In particular?

Samantha Brick.

Have you heard of her? She recently wrote a crazy post for the Daily Mail in a very Kelly LaBrock-esque "Don't hate me because I am beautiful," way.

Remember Kelly?

Beautiful right?

Back to Miss Brick, first we need to refer to exhibit A:

She is no Kelly LaBrock. Nope, nope.

This photo just does not jive with following comments we will call Exhibit B:

"I’m tall, slim, blonde and, so I’m often told, a good-looking woman. I know how lucky I am. But there are downsides to being pretty — the main one being that other women hate me for no other reason than my lovely looks."
"I’m not smug and I’m no flirt, yet over the years I’ve been dropped by countless friends who felt threatened if I was merely in the presence of their other halves. If their partners dared to actually talk to me, a sudden chill would descend on the room."
"I find that older women are the most hostile to beautiful women — perhaps because they feel their own bloom fading. Because my husband is ten years older than me, his social circle is that bit older too."

"It was clear that when you have a female boss, it’s best to let them shine, but when you have a male boss, it’s a different game: I have written in the Mail on how I have flirted to get ahead at work, something I’m sure many women do."

How utterly, bloody ridiculous. Do you flirt or do you not to get ahead? Do women hate you for your self-professed beauty, or your astonishing ego and lack of reality?

A friend asked me about her today and my first thought was that it was printed on April Fools, so it must be a joke. She has since been on news shows defending herself. Nope, no joke.

First, sorry to downplay any woman, but her arrogance and smug attitude make me want to shout, "Honey, you ain't all that."

I could see if she was Heidi Klum or Angelina Jolie or Kim Kardashian or some Victoria Secret model, she could pull off all these thoughts and more--although anyone that self-centered would get called out on such a publicly-stated attitude like that-- pretty or not.

Even Alessandro Ambrosio couldn't Pull Off That Unflattering Attitude...

However Ms. Brick? To be quite honest, to be perfectly blunt, in my opinion is pretty plain with horrible teeth.
She is certainly not unattractive, but bombshell worthy of her comments of jealousy, she is not.

I don't buy it. I don't buy she has been lavished with champagne and flowers from strangers. I don't buy that bartenders pick up her bill unless they perceive her of being, sadly, easy.

As for having never been a bridesmaid or having jealous friends and female bosses, I do buy it. Her attitude rather than her self-described, "lovely looks," seem to be the likely culprit. She would like to blame all the negative in her professional and social life on poor "beautiful me" looks rather than her goat cheese stinking self-adulation.

And the worst? She claims her attitude would be okay in the United States. As an American, woman, and mother of a daughter, I am insulted. Americans are not that shallow. I doubt anyone is that shallow.

Nope, not in my book would her egotistical remarks and admission she flirted to get ahead ever be acceptable. Not in my book!

My friends, confidence is great. However, unfounded over-confidence with a big heaping helping of smug? Soooo unattractive.

Ms. Brick? You are no Kelly LaBrock. Furthermore, from your remarks, you are not pretty on the inside and that is all that counts to this mother.

So do you believe her claims?

That was just spot on brilliant! I've always said some attractive women sabotage themselves by opening their mouth. Kelly LeBrock has *gained* weight and she still looks amazing!

This Daddy said...

WOW, that woman is not even good looking. Its nice for everyone to feel confident about themselves but for that woman to say all that and then not even be all that good looking is crazy. Nice write up.

Laura said...

wonderful post!
Me, I lectured her...had to jump on that bandwagon because the only left to blog about today was my colonoscopy.
It's my first time to comment here Heather, but I do LOVE your writing.

I like goat cheese. I don't think you should compare goat cheese to her.

And I agree, the teeth are bad. You're rubbing off on me.

But you know, you should all feel sorry for me because I've got this really hott wife and she distracts me all the time. She's in my thoughts everywhere and she's a hottie!

She's not all that. Her attitude stinks. I strongly suspect she has low self esteem and hangs around other women much like herself. What she describes is a lot of high school b*tch you stole my boyfriend behavior.

I don't get bent out of shape when that guy I married talks to other women, heck I encourage it. I encourage him to talk to other men too. He has no problem with me talking to people of either gender either.

I have no problem admitting I'm a short dumpy fat broad either. Back in the day I had my admirers. I still do. I suspect that its mostly because I have a healthy attitude and I don't come off as a snobby vain twit. But what do I know? I am after all, admittedly not all that.

Maybe I'm a self-absorbed bitch, but I'm hotter than her, even though I'm a bit overweight, but so is she. And FYI, men have been way meaner, horribly sexist, and assumed I'm an idiot or whore because, "I'm cute". Women are, especially older and younger women, are so, so much nicer.

The online backlash is probably nothing compared to the looks she must be getting in the rural town she lives in.

She isn't ugly, but IMHO she is quite far from "all that".
