The Samantha Brick Awards

Filed in Sun Signs

Most Popular Girls In SchoolO.m.g.

I never did a post on Samantha “Women Hate Me Because I Am So Beautiful” Brick because (a) the woman has zero birth data – she could be a bot created by the Daily Mail laboratories for all i know and (b) i did not want to give the delusional narcissist more space. You savvy?Β 

In case you missed the original Samantha Brick furore, she wrote a stunning piece in which she (a) attributed her lack for friends to her extreme good looks (somehow missing her own fuqwittery) and (b) seemed to feel she had a sort of Gisele Bundchen degree of hotness. I believe it had, to this day, the most comments ever on a Daily Mail piece.

But then i saw this gem by Amy “I Wish I Was Mediocre LIke My Friends”Β  Molloy and well, what is up with these people?

I think the Daily Mail has a special genius editor whose job is ply these bitches with Blue Devil Hoochie Juice, Space Dust and Dream Weed and then sort of take down their stream of consciouness drivel at 2am and craft it into a coherent narrative. This is honestly what i think is happening here.

I am all for people owning and celebrating their achievements but these peeps seem to have sort of inflation disorder. SOMEONE please get me their birth date. Or at least Sun Signs.

Business Insider helpfully pulled the ten best quotes from the Molloy piece…Look, i KNOW we’re all Zen and cosmic and whatever but it’s the Dark Moon right before an Eclipse so well, THOUGHTS?

This is what happens when upper middle class sheltered and English gets a degree and an interview. Sadly you see this shit kicking around a lot here. The Daily Mail just know how to tap a vein and they know their market really well.

She woudn’t even get noticed….woah!! Never heard of her before. This must be fake i mean look at her lol.
She might not be able to see herself for who she really is if this is real!
Very funny indeed!!!!

Where has good journalism gone? OUr daily rag is pages of Mail-Online
just downloaded and 6 pages of coloured Coles ads for 1dollar & 10 cents.
Think all that BS in womens mags is to distract us from the real world mixed with the old why does a dog lick it’s balls—because it CAN coz it gets bought.
Grazia was trashy Doctors reception material along with Who, just mindless
Disallusioned with reading material, think i’ll go draw instead. Draw up my own new world.

Samantha is a plain Jane, probably less likely her good looks but bland non-threatening appearance.

Molly has no clue as to what life is all about. Being successful shouldn’t be a comparison but something shared.

I’ve had men buy me flowers, pay for a dayspa and take me to concerts. They’ve bought me drinks and flirted outrageously. Not because I’m attractive or chatty or anything remotely femme fatale. Proximity was there and They just wanted to get in my pants.
Should I write a column? Is it news?

men do this? like, in real life? where are they? how do i date them? i’m practicing ‘graceful acceptance’ these days instead of worrying that i will look like a gold-digging leech and forfeit all independence if I allow myself to be wined and dined.
PS just so we’re all clear, I am not joking.

Pi

NB. pants party is contingent on mutual attraction, obviously.

The problem with these gift-showering men Pi, is that they are usually doing it because it’s the only fuqing hope they’ve got of getting into a chicks pants.

I tried the whole graceful acceptance thing, have yet to come across a guy that gave for the joy of it, they all expect something in the end… I’d rather stay independent than go through the whole inevitable “give me my tshirt back bitch” bullshit.

If I kept a list of kind actions male strangers did for me on a list on my wall to look at every morning, I’d probably have an insane inflated ego too. People do nice things sometimes; get over it. In the course of an entire lifetime, they KINDA ADD UP. So what? I can’t believe this woman is carrying around a list of ‘why men find me attractive’ with bullet points of random acts of kindness from strangers with d*cks, and then decided to write a whole goddamn article about it.

Why do so many of these comments seem to hinge on how these women ‘look’? As if looks are a measure or guarantee of success or a reason to pour scorn on other women. Looks are not the cypher ladies.

I’m sure there is much reading between the lines to do with her anecdotes…I mean she’s having a boozy old dinner with her colleague who suddenly spazzes out just because el Brick and colleague’s partner like the same song??? I’m picturing hours of simpering and flirting and batting of eye-lids leading up to something like this. I have no doubt, despite her garden-variety looks, that men DO respond to her this way. She has that silly, ditsy, Nigella Lawson-type demeanour (sort of caricature of ‘femininity’) which looks to men to play a certain role, and which some men are happy… Read more »

In two minds about this.

one side: It wouldnt be viewed as shocking if it was a man. They do this self importance shit all the time without anyone batting an eyelid. Its called competition and marketing yourself.

other side: Sick of women living up to the career/princess bitch image. Why can’t we help and nurture our fellow women instead of climbing up the ladder then pulling it up behind us.

I admit that when it first came out I quite liked its hyper colour glossiness. The mag that is.
And find a synchronicity here. When Amy’s column appeared it made me make that face that’s usually solely reserved for horrendous odours.
On a recent cleanup I found that ms brick featured in the mag pre “I’m so beautiful…” Spouting some crap about being a better mother to her stepson than his real mother. That must have gone down a treat at the weekend custody changeover.

Gosh they are awful

What is even more awful is in the midst of their awfulness I recognise and empathise with some of the stuff they are coming out with and it worries me!

I don’t think I’m great, in fact my self esteem is rock bottom at the moment but….I do know that in my life I have had many encounters with bitchy horrible people who isolated me because I was pretty, successful, intelligent….Does that make me like these vacuous deluded women? Heeeeelpppp! God forbid

no babe. women can be fuqing insecure bitches, who will say anything about you behind your back to make them selves look or feel better. and all you’re doing is just getting around trying to figure life out. remember they are behind you for a reason! usually we wise up with age and self-awareness (and decent friends who are not insecure and destructive) it’s ok to think you’re great. just because we’re not angelina jolie doesn’t mean we have to have a low or even modest self-opinion. if you’re starting from a low place, sometimes the pendulum has to swing… Read more »

I firmly believe most magazines play on our insecurities to sell copies/ write articles. So much of it is bullshit.

I mean, who’s going to buy a mag that exclaims—“beauty products do jack, anti-aging is pointless, you don’t need to buy anything new this season, healthy-self-worth is the new black and there are no secrets to dieting but being skinny won’t make you be loved and the only person who’s love and respect really matters is your own!”

Duck face in perpetual pout. Book sells new on Amazon for $1.25 Freelance….If you can get the work it’s great. In this world of shifting from hard print to digital age (where everyone is supposed to work for free or close to) I’d say right now she’s still on her space dust high, thinking she was dream-weeding, or that this piece published online has just boosted her profile (yet again) and someone out there is clamouring for one of her ‘freelance’ pieces..cue Womens Weekly, OK or whatever crap is still printed these days.

what is really amusing about these women is that they aren’t very attractive, (cue pout face yet, what is it with women doing this cats bum mouth) but maybe thats the point. I would guess that she is an aries, it reeks of that super ego immunity thing where they demand that they are actually totally amazing to make up for the fact that in actuality they have no real friends, no real career successes ( read grazia fail) and this is some kind of strong suit to make it through making it to her thirties without any of the… Read more »

Just for the record, Amy Molloy is a Pisces (I looked it up at the time when I really was blown away by that book). She basically sleeps around to get through the grief, but hey we all need something or other to get us through, and she got through in her way. I am a bit dumbfounded that she seemingly attributes her success as a writer to just being ambitious and successful and talented; maybe so, but her husband dying on her actually created an amazingly emotional story which she mined, that’s the book which made her known.

I was surprised when I saw the name – Amy Molloy. I read a book a while back which was quite amazing – Wife, Interrupted. She was a widow at 23, after her young husband found he had terminal cancer. They married in the hospital and the book was about that and the year after. She didn’t come across as a bimbo in that book (indeed, I recommend it, its fairly bloody honest) so I didn’t think the bimbonic comments here could be the same girl. But I did a short bit of detective work and indeed it is the… Read more »

In my opinion this article smacks of a calculated move to get her CV out into the ether… designed to get attention, readership, buzz. She’s obviously got smarts, so she would have known the attention such an article would get. Give it a week and she’ll be hired by a breakfast TV show.

My guess is that she is seductive in addition to being cute-I’ve seen far more beautiful . Anyone ever ever seen the episode of 30Rock with John Hamm where Liz Lemon figures out he lives in a bubble because of his good looks?

Pi

Yes, that was my theory too. I would say she is definitely in the realm of cute, there’s something about her. And there might be some kind of proximity sexual magnetism that men / women respond to that we don’t get from the photos. I don’t think she is being egotistical, she sounds as perplexed as anyone might by the reaction she gets from people.

So do you think this is a mag hag thing? A woman I know – a smidgen above Amy’s tabloid ilk is similarly lacking in EQ / humility. I had no idea Grazia was gone – all those junkets and huge tipping on the expense account brought it down? Or just the ‘quality’ of the content and the fact that mags are verging on extinct? *gazes off into the middle distance, considers cleaning grout*

The more I read about Liz Jones, the more I think her style is the prototype for these articles. She was the anorexic editor of a fashion mag who refused to stop using bulimic models.
She sounded so familiar with her rant on how mean the fashion industry is, how she got banned from shows (probably because she is sooo successful/thin/pretty).

So there, my theory is Sam, Amy & Liz are all Mercury ruled people who spazzed out, or just, y’know, Virgos. πŸ™‚
