She's sexy and she knows it, so she wrote about it for "The Daily Mail." Now she's getting pummeled.

Friends, you can stop sending me this article. I saw it the day it came out and my first thought was, "This is too easy to ridicule. Even for a blogger, this is way too easy. I'm sure no one else will take it seriously." To me it was a piece of fiction, and a highly comedic one at that.

In case you missed it, Samantha Brick, whose name even sounds made-up, wrote about how "pretty" she is, and how it leads to constant spontaneous gift-giving by men around her. "There are downsides to being pretty," she wrote. "The main one being that other women hate me for no other reason than my lovely looks."

I didn't even hate Brick like I was supposed to, because I was convinced she wasn't real. Kind of like how H&M's models are photoshopped versions of people rather than actual humans. Or, just like how that sensationalized story about the 8-year-old whose mom was giving her botox — which began in "The Sun," another British tabloid — also wasn't real. From a practical standpoint, a lot of stories in the British tabloids are made up so I had reason to believe this woman is a photoshopped image with a photoshopped personality.
