Samantha Brick: Do We Hate Confident Women?

Samantha Brick

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.
