YOU POOR THING. Maybe you've just not realised you're massively up yourself?
If people are suggesting she's unattractive then I would disagree with that but she's hardly attractive to the point where she would stand out on the tube in the morning. And given the tickets she has on herself that's kind of the point.
It pointed out she wasn't all that attractive, which isn't the same as being ugly at all.
If someone who isn't that good looking feels that their quality of life is being adversely affected by their good looks, someone explaining to them that they're not remarkably good looking might be very helpful.
and judging by this article I'd say its far more likely to be because of her personality
As she's not STUNNIN', I would assume that the reason no one wants to be friends with her or talk to her is because she's not got a good personality but she's so arrogant that she's blaming it on her looks....maybe based on what one woman has shouted at her in regards to her husband. BUT bitches be crazy when it comes to their husband 'flirting' with their friend so it wouldn't matter if she was attractive or not
If this woman's experiences of life are anything like described in this highly reputable publication, I don't think anyone under God's sun need worry about increasing her obsession with her physical appearance.
she'd do something about it i.e. ugly herself up, talk to them about it. rather than writing about it in the dailymail. People are likely to talk to her less now. WELL DONE WOMAN
Got the figure, yeah. But if we're going to objectify the woman, that is not an attractive face. Not at all.
(as lovely as CG is).
For now on I'm going to interpret every woman not interested in me as being intimidated by my good looks!
The thing is, were she not clearly a bit obnoxious, she might have a point. One of my best friends is really good-looking and, perhaps crucially, quite vulnerable-looking to go with it, and I genuinely do feel sorry for her at times as she can't go anywhere without every egotistical self-professed womaniser in the room spending the entire night harassing her. So I do get there are downsides to being good-looking. I just think that having such a big ego you'd write a newspaper column about how good-looking you are is probably a bigger social disadvantage.
Finally, there's someone worse than Liz Jones.
She's not that bad.
We all know it's just because she's beautiful.
Wouldnt even touch her with any of yours, what a terrible woman.
Whatever a womans attractiveness, I can imagine most nights out are torturous examples of the worst kind of males. I do feel really bad when pretty much every girl gets letched on constantly, must be really shit
* audience claps *
* roll credits *
Just wanted to point out that I realise attractiveness doesn't mean that guys won't sleaze on them. Just cos you want to have a sniff doesnt mean we don't have standards
Girls hate it when you try to talk to them about Berghaus and how you did the three peaks challenge in '99. Stop getting pissy with me
It's like when you accuse someone of being defensive- mirrors facing mirrors, indignant rage ever expanding ...
We all know that the world works to some extent on both a) the lavish treatment and b) the catty exclusion of people who are perceived to be good looking. She's not telling us anything we don't know - I guess it's just hearing it from such a forceful first person perspective (with a notable disregard for self-consciousness) that is quite jarring/annoying.
But yeah, pretty harmless piece if you ask me.
i know it's probably because the photographer is failing at his job, but her smile looks like someone taught her how to smile over a really shitty skype connection and she didn't quite understand the intricate details of the expression.
i am not saying she's unattractive though.
What we've learnt thus far is;
Women are bitchy.
Men are letchy.
Some women think they're far more attractive than they actually are.
Wahmbulances are not the sole reserve of cardigan-wearers.
Especially when you're as good-looking as me and have something of a reputation for being amazing in the bedroom.
The constant attention, numerous sexual encounters and repeated marriage proposals can sometimes leave you feeling really lonely and emotionally unfulfilled.
There are downsides to having luxurious bouffant hair

Comments: ARRGGHHHH, I hate you DM you are twisting my fucking melon about who and what I am supposed to hate at any given time, I will check back hourly for positive reinforcement about this issue from this day forward. I love you, you hot, fat, skinny, chav, black, benefit scrounging, banker, town planning, social worker SLUT.
She has manly deeply set eyes and an odd smile/ overbite going on and her beauty doesn't really come across in these pictures. Either she is crashingly unphotogenic and adorable in real life, or else she has some sort of mental disorder in which she thinks people are falling at her feet/ denying her a role as a bridesmaid because of her looks.
Odd article, but the general premise is sadly probably true.
half the internet thread commentators do exactly that
C'mon. She's no Jen An.
just a bit funny that a few in this thread are doing exactly what she says people do normally
her position is that she gets denied opportunites or treated differently because she is so breathtakingly stunning.
It's fair commentary to question whether or not that might be correct, on the basis that she's no overwhelmingly stunning. It's like me saying that my friends are jealous of me because I'm so tall... it's just not objectively speaking possible.
in the same way that whenever someone posts a "OMG, <insert current indie-esque darling> is so gorgeous" you know it's only a matter of posts before someone says, "WOULDN'T TOUCH HER WITH YOURS, MATE", as DanielKelly has already so capably spoofed.
In this instance, it's more that whatever kernel of a genuine issue there is in the story would be completely drowned out in the rush to debate whether she's actually all the HOTT or not.
it's not as if my first thoughts whilst reading the piece didn't revolve around whether I thought she was actually attractive or not.
The DiS contrarian society will never fail to score on that front.
Like, the article presents a personalized account of a potentially broader issue, which can then be assessed in terms of whether the complaints are legitimate in this instance, or could be talked about in terms of the broader issue itself: i.e. ignoring the question of whether this person really is pretty and really has suffered these responses, etc.
The focus on the former tends to reduce the possibility of the latter.
She talks IRL and has more of a personality IRL. She's not just a picture 'pretty' face.
On here she's just a picture and some arrogant words about how beautiful she is and how that makes everyone hate her.
If any of us met her in the street, before today, we'd all talk to her and be polite. I doubt any one of us would turn around and think pppfffttt i'm not talking to you because you're beautiful and my husband might run off with you. She's deluded.
maybe that's the case, maybe it isn't. i've only read an article with one side of an argument as to what her life experience is. i don't know anyone else with first hand experience of her life to be able to say "no she's obvs talkin bollocks mate"
''She laments that not one of her girlfriends has ever asked her to be a bridesmaid - perhaps from fear of being overshadowed by her looks''
Has it never occurred to her that maybe it's because she's the type of person who writes truly terrible articles for The Daily Mail i.e. she's a fucking crashing bore.
whilst the tone of the article is a bit perculiar, she's fairly honest in that she says she's no 'Elle Macpherson'.
However I suspect the fact that she's tall, slim and blonde, traits widely percieved as being attractive might lead to the kind of treatment she's described.
and i don't get treated like she does. I wish I got free drinks and stuff like that
You think you get that because of your puns? THINK AGAIN TOOTS.
it's facing the wrong way.
but they turned round the keyboard and monitor so they could get the exercise bike in the photo
The truth is, I’d much rather work for a man than a woman. I’ve always dressed with the express intention to please and gratify my male bosses in the workplace.
If I had a choice of how to spend my ideal lunch hour, it’s a no-brainer. Each and every time I’d choose to flirt over lunch with a male superior rather than engage in mindless gossip with the girls over a Pret sandwich.
Yet I’m no meek, all-serving geisha or someone hellbent on sleeping their way to the top. I am university educated, reasonably intelligent and, so I’ve been told, attractive. I’m easy on the eye — and I use it to my advantage every single day.
By the age of 30 I had a three-quarter-of-a-million-pound house, a Mercedes convertible (and a Mercedes estate for when I took my dogs out), a walk-in dressing room crammed with clothes that Carrie Bradshaw would be envious of — oh, and I had a generous six-figure salary and a high-ranking position in my chosen industry.
"person writes articles with a specific, one-sided agenda to get a new piece of work published" shocker
I don't want to think about how much she gets paid for this crap.
then this story is completely void. No one is threatened by someone with ance.
Sex appeal? Is she having a laugh?

But he's allowed THAT gut? I don't think so Missy.
who even cares?
Boy, you've got a lot to learn about wimmin.
it's just funny because i think mentioning that she isn't attractive to the point where it's like WOW is relevant but you're sort of proving her right now.
And in my post that you've 'called me up on', i'm actually slagging off her husband who thinks he has the right to tell her he will divorce her if she gets fat YET he is clearly overweight himself.
If you would read any of my other posts, you will see that i'm not being bitchy like others have with their posts about her looks, i have clearly said that she is not the most attractive or unattractive person in the world, she is distinctly average. I am as average as she is and I have no treatment of the sort. I have friends who are VERY attractive and I don't feel threatened by them and I would love them to be my bridemades one day so basically all I'm saying is she's talking utter BS and there is more to it than that, i.e. she has a shit personality.
AND apparently, she lives in france. French women aren't going to accept a british stuck up skinny blonde bird into their rural french village.
So yes, please elaborate my dear. I'm listening.
i thought you meant her gut, my apologies.
I so fat
it's that she has a husband. He is a Frenchman.
Might lose a million stone, marry some absolute dickhead then eat loads of cake. YEAH TAKE THAT.
Only Gary Barlow.
And he's thin again I think.
It was only the other day I was given a leaflet about Jesus, a small can of Fanta and chased down the street by a girl in a red top saying Amnesty with a clip board. All because of my looks.
And her husband looks like a complete villan
Not that I'm great looking or anything. They just seem to not like me whereas men I have worked for are laid back and I haven't had a problem with...
I have no problem with female bosses and never have had in ten years in the law. Male bosses on the other hand- I need to have them castrated. They can't handle a strong female competitor and so they try to sexually undermine me to show off their big swinging dicks. Fucking aresholes. (this is a touchy subject for me at the mo though. Sorry for slightly tangental rant).
Sexist men in the workplace are usually brought down as everyone knows it is wrong but sly, bitchy remarks can be harder to stand up against. :(
“While I’m no Sigourney Weaver, I’m tall, slim, with brown hair woven by angels and I am, so I’m often told, a very handsome woman.“
IT'S TURNED INTO A TWITTER-STORM.
I feel so validated.
Yeah, the Daily Mail's really been shown up here!!!
If someone wrote an article saying they were incredibly clever and everyone was jealous of them, and if said article contained grammatical errors, then you'd rightly expect the general response to be *nnggghghgghhh you're thick*.
Or think of any footballer who behaves like a flash bastard then plays like utter dogshit, it's natural to take a bit of pleasure in taking the piss out of them.
other than: *this is a cynical was of getting the Mail website loads of hits*?
simon_t needs telling off.
Has Samantha Brick on the cover rebuffing the beauty backlash - cor! *leaves internet*
'Wow. If someone gave me a free bottle of champagne on a flight... Well, I'd probably give them a blowjob, anyway.'
If Brad Pitt were to say: 'Yes, I'm a good-looking fella,' then the world would nod sagely in agreement. But if Angelina Jolie uttered something along those lines, she'd be subject to the same foaming-at-the-mouth onslaught hurled at me yesterday.
I'm being trolled. The picture of Pascal with a hunting rifle as well :D
how could she write something so utterly misguided and mean it?
Is this a very clever attempt by the Mail Online to garner hits?
that she believes somebody offering to help a crying and distressed woman only does so because of her looks.
not DiS-like "i propose that her argument may be flawed" but straightup hatred, which has far more to do with her simply being a woman than how she actually looks.
Father, teach me the stove is hot.
yeah okay it was just daily mail readers commenting on that article, absolutely nobody else
it brought us a picture of Pascal 'he kept himself to himself and was always polite' Brick with a rifle so it's not all bad.
Also I love this:
"Until this week I never really understood the term 'Trolling' — used to describe when anonymous people viciously attack others on the internet. Now I do!"
Good trolling, madame.
"I'm the first to give out compliments when someone I know looks good or has made an effort. I don't understand why other women don't do the same."
You see, this I just don't get. Even from Daily Mail wind-up work. My experience of women is that, unable to physically suck each other's dicks for obvious anatomical reasons, they make up for it by metaphorically blowing each other- they'll try to convince you that what appears to be Swamp Thing in a print dress is God's gift to beauty.
Great, great work otherwise.
DIG UP, STUPID!
good work, outraged internetters
WORLD CLASS TROLLING
i'm quite impressed someone's managed to turn trolling into a profit-making enterprise
then again, there's a lot of distasteful things you can make profit from
but you've made it pretty badly whatever it is
Someone on twitter said that the Daily Mail would have gotten around £30k? Robust facting. Completely devoid of context surrounding what that £30k means. What's £30k to the Daily Mail anyway? Chicken feed/the price of a sub-ed...
To attach economic significance to all of this is a more nauseating point than the one meowington was making. If you ask me.
2) it was posted without comment, you're just applying snide motives to justify you acting like a mardy prick
3) the daily mail, mailonline, it's a business. profit-making enterprise. yes? christ, i didn't realise they still did lobotomies these days
4) please don't reply to me again if this is the best you can do
You made quite a stern riposte to meowington (if this was jovial, then I apologise), which I thought was a bit harsh in light of the fact that I didn't agree with the point you were making either. So I merged the two together. Quite why you've reacted in such a hysterical way is a bit bizarre (although not surprising given your past form).
Anyway - my point was, what's £30k to the Daily Mail? Is this sum of money a) worth criticising others' behaviour for and b) in any way significant enough to them to make this kind of journalism (reputational risk notwithstanding) economically worthwhile? If you don't wish to answer these questions - fair enough.
i feel bad for going on the windup
was being jovial before yes, but i guess my point is that this whole thing just gives me a headache. people getting angry at shite being posted on a website of a newspaper they generally hate, but keep clicking and clicking, thus providing something towards a lovely stream of income for the site...and then complaining when more of the same comes along! whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
I quite enjoy these stories for LOLZ myself. And, think about it, we all love the Daily Mail existing deep down. We'd all be nothing without our nemesis' etc. etc.
Gosh brusma, you're such a Brick.
and by saying the above, you can't really call Geoff a mardy prick as you're starting to sound like one yourself....
I was only making a joke as you seemed to be saying that all the users of this forum are to blame for making the daily mail £30k yesterday.
I may be being dumb here but why are people on here so angry at clicking on the dailymail link and there used to be that itsy (??) link that people would go through. I just dont understand it and wouldn't mind having it explained to me.
In order to do that he'd have to have said 'Good work, DiS' rather than 'outraged internetters'.
well I never
but that doesn't mean the term only applies to DiS, which is what you seemed to be taking it to mean.
that I certainly am an outraged internetter
I follow @heidiklum, but she doesn't follow me back. I think that tells you everything you need to know.
SEE YOU DO HATE HER BECAUSE SHE’S BEAUTIFUL YOU JUST DON’T REALISE IT YET
READ THREADS GODAMMITTT
and her unfathomable looks.
but there's not a comment article on the two articles
which is marginally better than Brickface referring to herself in the third-person some more
But he needs to chill out.
Disappointed that didn't make the Daily Mail's coverage tbh.
They've sat her next to a woman who's much more attractive then her. Classic.
"Did somebody tell you that?" :'''''')
grandpa simpson hat gif
like to do the first article?
have they sought her out or do you think she got in contact with them going "here i'm a bit of a growler but am super confident nonetheless and my dad loves me so the articles pretty much written already!"?
wait a wonderful selection of pictures once again... featuring the all important 'purple dress' shot.
She really is an utter loon.
^i prefer it like this
but with a moustache?
Why does she keep on shoe-horning the `I live in France` banter into every fucking article? YES WE KNOW THAT YOU LIVE IN FUCKING FRANCE, YOU ABSOLUTE CANNON.
the more it makes me chuckle that the producers of the show were like: ''right, we need a smokin psychologist. Not having Brick claim that the psychologist is arguing against her because she's jealous of her. Not on my fucking watch.''
Can just imagine ultimate TV psychology go-to-guy Dr. Raj Persaud's face at not being given that gig.
To be fair he'd have probably only tried to bang Brick, the slimy cunt.
