she has posted this book review. of all the books to review she's chosen one by mumsnet. what a coincidence (not) she must read the posts on here and thought she would make a blatant attempt to be liked. i for one cannot warm to her after the press articles.

Well she's going to love you for the publicity.

Who is Cherry Menlove? confused Honestly not being sarcastic, just no idea.

WhereYou I'd never heard of her before joining MN

Then I clicked a link and read a bit about her...now I've can't remember again.

I've never seen her name mentioned anywhere other than MN though

<< Unhelpful >>

What an odd OP! And, having read the blog, which I'm guessing is your actual purpose, she didn't choose the book, she was asked to review it.

It was a nice review, and nice to see someone have something positive to say about MN for a change grin what's the problem with her?

I don't think she's sucking up to mn. She is a young mum who likes the book. We all like the book too.Her dc are quite young so presumably she wouldn't have had much interest in Mumsnet or their books before she had them. As for the newspaper reports, well there are 2 sides to every story aren't there and you can be sure a newspaper will twist and contrive a story until it gets a headline. I think we're all savy to that carry on nowadays.

I thought she was a porn star with that name when I first joined and saw her name!

SaraBellumHertz Fri 28-Sep-12 13:12:59

Who is she?

I liked the review. MN is influential; you can't expect ppl not to refer to it in public , so it's good that she was so positive about MN.

dont feed the flames

I think that's a very nicely-written piece actually. Don't see why you feel the need to call a positive review "sucking up".

QueenMaeve Fri 28-Sep-12 13:16:03

She is a blogger who was torn to shreds here a while back on a thread.

HecateHarshPants Fri 28-Sep-12 13:23:30

even nicer of her to give a good review then. She could have been petty...

megandraper Fri 28-Sep-12 13:29:09

OP - that's a bit of a heartless thread to start. Just read the link you provided, and in the first paragraph CM is talking very honestly about her three miscarriages, which I found quite moving actually.

NorksAreMessy Fri 28-Sep-12 13:31:56

Why would you start such a nasty thread OP, what are you hoping for?
This has made me a bit sad. This and all the 'we hate such and such a celebrity' ones, that seem to have cropped up lately

It is petty, pointless and rather undignified, and against the supportive sprit of MN

Do you think she knows what we've said about her? <ducks>

Funnys - YY. Cherry Menlove threads have a habit of being bumped by a one-off poster. They zombie to life every time she has a negative news story - so I am guessing it's not La Menlove herself, rather someone who really doesn't like her.

Now. Shall we do the apron pic?

PunkInDublic Fri 28-Sep-12 13:35:52

Is this about TADA woman?

And yes, funnys, agreed.

SuePurblybilt Fri 28-Sep-12 13:37:46

No, TaDa! woman wishes she was as famous as La Menlove. Who has a book or something in America, and a blog where All Things Are Painted White.
This is a different bonkers blogger. Not a MN one.

FunnysInLaJardin Fri 28-Sep-12 13:38:38

really Sue, I had noticed that trend too. Seems a bit odd all round really, much like the good Mrs M herslef

PunkInDublic Fri 28-Sep-12 13:38:38

Ah ok. I liked Ta-Da....

FunnysInLaJardin Fri 28-Sep-12 13:39:43

do the apron picture and maybe the tiny paddock?

SuePurblybilt Fri 28-Sep-12 13:41:34

I think I may have even mentioned it to Them Upstairs, Funnys. A while back - when it was very obvious.
Apron, squeeeeee!

Longtalljosie Fri 28-Sep-12 13:44:48

Um - it's a very nice review. Why the bitchiness?
