Samantha Brick: 'Women hate me for being beautiful'

Updated on April 5, 2012

Samantha Brick

Samantha Brick has caused quite a stir.

And this time if her anecdotes are anything to go by it hasn't been in men's pants.
The writer has prompted an avalanche of abuse from across the world for claiming that women hate her because she's beautiful.

She said in an article that her looks have been a constant source of difficulty throughout her life. Her beauty is a curse, not a blessing, she says.

On the plus side her looks have left men spellbound by her presence. One such love-sick little chump, a pilot indeed, sent her a bottle of champagne.

He spotted her from the cockpit of the jet he was flying and sought her out with the hope of wisking her off to some tropical love island.

Samantha has no doubt encouraged this attention from men. It would be easy enough to stop the gifts and flirting if she wanted to.

But why would she complain about desperate men falling over themselves to help a sweet little damsel like herself?

Perhaps she has low self-esteem and needs attention from men to make her feel good. There's no crime in that. Though her husband, the formiddable Pascal Rubinatin the Dordogne (pictured yesterday in hunting gear, biker mustache and rifle), may like to have a chat with her about this.

What appears to have riled people the most is Samantha's attitude. More specifically, her views about her fellow women.

Samatha believes that she's beautiful. Pascal does too. There are also a handful of people that share this view.

But beauty is subjective and the general consensus is that she's average-looking. A six or seven at best for the majority of men. There have been plenty of males this week who have enjoyed giving her a dose of reality.

What has caused most apoplexy has been Samantha's opinion of other females.
She has accused them of jealousy, spite and vengeance all because they cannot handle her intense beauty.


Women can be critical of other ladies' appearances. They like to look at stars in glossy magazines. They ask men 'do you find Angelina Jolie attractive'. Or 'is Penelope Cruz good-looking in your opinion?'

British women are culturally different from those in LA or the Mediterranean and in some ways Samantha is right. The Americans have a 'you go, girl' outlook on life.

And taken to the extreme there have been cases of teenage girls committing suicide after being bullied because of their looks.

Everybody's experience of life is different and it could be that Samantha has experienced a degree of ill feeling towards her because of her looks. Though this is likely to have become a self-fulfilling belief throughout her life, as her 'told you so' response to the reaction to her first article proves.

So should we really be getting so angry at her?

A far deserving person of such bile would be the lamentable Cheryl Cole.

Whereas Samantha is comfortable to strut around with her protruding stomach secure in her opinion of herself, Cheryl insists on a rigorous beauty regime that would be more fitting to Queen Nefertiti. It was only this week that she revealed she travels with two pairs of jeans - one for when she's eaten an extra lettuce leaf.

But Cheryl is no stunner. Her past - including attacking a woman in a toilet amid accusations of racism - are about as refined as a builder's elbow. Her rise to fame? Marrying a footballer.
She throws pathetic tantrums when she can't get her own way. Have we forgotten about her exit from the X Factor judging panel after a fall out with Simon Cowell?

And whenever she wants to get in the papers she dons a pair of hot pants and a pouts in some ridiculous 'I am beautiful way' safe in the knowledge she will get what she wants.

Her arrogance is breathtaking. Do we really want to see another picture of Cheryl worshiping herself in a pair of skimpy hot-pants? No thanks.

Samantha is far more attractive and intelligent than Cheryl. Give us more of her, please.

      Yes, it's crazy how somebody can become known around the world literally overnight! Well, there's that saying 'Everybody will have their fifteen minutes of fame'...

      Interesting how such little trivial things generate so much interest and response!!!! I hope my articles in Hubpages would have the same effect…..

      The original title was "The Sisterhood Hates Beautiful Women," but the editor changed it to what it is now. If the original title were used, I think it would have made the whole thing come off differently. However, having said that, I do know of women who think they are so beautiful that others treat them as if they are (we tell ppl how to treat us, etc.). And I agree with Levertis Steele, let her enjoy it now because every flower does wither in time.

      If this woman thinks that she is beautiful, let her have that. Who is this hurting? It should hurt no one. If she is a little overboard about herself, so are many other women. Character development stays in the oven to bake.

      I wonder if this article was designed to show that women are each other's worst critics. Women get angry, jealous, and hateful, and a lot of other emotions when other women are stuck on themselves. Let her have it! Beautiful or ugly, all flowers wither. So, let her enjoy herself now.

      She needs to get over herself,i've seen prettier. Maybe women don't like you, but I think that's more because of your arrogance.Not your beauty.

      Either this woman THINKS she's beautiful (possibly because her husband tells her so) or she's using this to gain her "fifteen minutes of fame." Who knows? Who cares? In spite of the bleached blond hair, she looks older than 40, is fairly attractive but definitely not beautiful, and needs to tone up her tummy muscles. Perhaps she was pretty when younger, became accustomed to being admired and her self-image is "stuck" in an outdated mode. As far as I'm concerned, she's just another nine days' wonder who will be forgotten when the next gimmick surfaces on the 'Net.

      I am with cloverleaffarm. I don't find her attractive and I have never heard of her before.

      This is the first I have heard of her, and I must say she must be delusional. I don't find her that pretty at all. I checked out one of the other hubs you posted on her, and I asked my husband what he thought. He wasn't to impressed. I will agree that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but she looks MUCH older than her stated 40 years. Brits must have a different sense of beauty, I guess.

      I saw her on tv this morning. She is very likely a flirt and that is why men like her and women don't. It's really not because of her beauty, she looks like a nice common looking person to me.

      I've seen those kind of flirty women all the time. Their great friends until a man walks in the room and than she changes, hanging on the man's every word and ignoring the women.

      I'm surprised she's upset over the way she's being treated. What did she expect.

      Enjoyed your hub. By the way who is Cheryl Cole.
