The first week of half term was certainly a week where "News" was concerned and who couldn't help but have an opinion on the Samantha Brick story in the Daily Mail and her subsequent interview on This Morning. The whole debacle was the top trending subject on Twitter (until mention of Karen Matthews release hit the headlines) and left me feeling a bit sorry for her in the end when it became apparent her argument had no substance what so ever and that a lot of things mentioned in the article were referring to events that had happened over the last twenty years and probably only once or twice and not in the volume we had been led to believe. That said, I think what got my back up (and the rest of the nations women) was the fact that she honestly believed she was something special when in fact for a 41 year old I can't deny that she is fairly attractive and I really wouldn't mind looking like her one bit, but without the huge ego we all detected. There are women like Samantha everywhere, we all know or have known one, the woman who really thinks she is something special, they are generally the ones who tend to have more male than female friends and not because women feel threatened by them but because we distance ourselves after growing sick of their bragging, boasting and vanity. I'm all for women being confident but there is something very unattractive about being over confident and loving yourself.
