I don't really have an opinion on Katie Derham other than seeing her a few times on Strictly, she seems nice enough. I don't get how she is a not woman's woman. Or why we all have to be women's women, whatever that is.
I think I would be a bit offended if someone suggested that I was going to cheat on my husband too.

TBH I think it's Platell who is being anti women

I've not read it, but Platell is a festering, poisonous turd at the best of times so I'm sure you're right. But then what do you expect? Her job is to sneer at other women, that's what the Fail pay her for.

She is an absolutely vile human being. Yanbu.

Katie Derham is not a 'woman's woman'? This from the woman who tears other women to shreds for a living hmm She's utterly vile

Typical lazy and poisonous journalism from Platell.

Dipankrispaneven Thu 10-Dec-15 10:43:43

Amanda Platell loses no opportunity to be bitchy about other women, and she has absolutely no interest in applying a modicum of intelligence to what she says, or doing out anything as boring as checking the facts. If anyone isn't a woman's woman, it's her.

It's probably Daily Hate so I won't click.
But hey it's Amanda Platell. Venom and bile is compulsory.

Platell isn't even the human being's human being.

She is an absolutely evil witch at the best of times, but this article is a new low I feel. But I also think that maybe giving her a thread on MN is feeding the beast if you get what I mean? Not to have a dig at you or anything OP, because I am in complete agreement with you.

Wow. I read the article and it's weird - quite nice compliments (Elle Macpherson body double), combined with absolute poison. She sounds totally unstable (the writer not Katie).

Now, whilst Katie's smile does irritate me, and whilst my 7yo daughter cried as both her favourites were in the dance-off, there is really no need for such a downright horrible, mean and schoolgirl-ish article.

Grow up, woman!

MerryMarigold Thu 10-Dec-15 10:50:38

PS. Never heard of her before, but I will avoid any future articles. Who wants to fill their mind with such hatefulness?

I like KD I don't see any of what AP describes.

ExitPursuedByABear Thu 10-Dec-15 11:04:57

What a vicious, nasty piece of work.

polentapies Thu 10-Dec-15 11:14:10

I understand what you mean about 'feeding the beast' and I think that's true. I was just taken aback by this article. I don't even read the DM v often but was looking for a another topic when I spotted that one and was just a bit shock

squoosh Thu 10-Dec-15 11:26:49

Would it be bitchy and vile to say Amanda Platell's face is looking very weird from all the bad plastic surgery she's had?

SchnooSchnoo Thu 10-Dec-15 11:27:24

What a nasty, bitchy pointless article.

regenerationfez Thu 10-Dec-15 11:31:48

I think nasty bitchy and pointless is an apt description of almost everything Amanda Platell has ever written. The DM must pay a hell of a lot of money to their female writers to just be able to say to them 'write another woman hating piece of shit' and get so many women to do it!

Scarletforya Thu 10-Dec-15 11:37:29

God it's nasty, I had to stop reading. Author sounds pathetically jealous. I don't know the woman she's spouting vitriol about.

littlemermaid80 Thu 10-Dec-15 11:39:42

Wow, this women comes across as super jealous of Angelina, Katie, in fact any woman who is better looking then her! Oh dear.

Kitsandkids Thu 10-Dec-15 11:44:23

I read this thread then went to read the article. Wow. What a bitch! Personally I think Katie exudes class and seems a nice person. And I read the article where she was offended when asked about the 'Strictly curse' and I didn't blame her one bit for what she said about it!

Rosa Thu 10-Dec-15 11:44:30

First and last article I read by her - what a terrible, horrible person . Mind you she does scribble drivel for the daily fail so what else would one expect?
I like Katie, then again I like Nigella , and Lorraine Kelly .....

StrawberryTeaLeaf Thu 10-Dec-15 11:49:59

Anything the Daily Fail is boasting is a "gloriously spiky blast" is bound to be bitchy bollocks, isn't it?

Hardly worth discussing TBH. It's advertising revenue generating click-bait.

StrawberryTeaLeaf Thu 10-Dec-15 11:51:37

(It is a bit of a shame, though, when you consider that Platell had a semi-respectable career once.)

LovelyFriend Thu 10-Dec-15 12:04:11

Well she got so
Many shades of misogyny into that article - full house of women hating. Nasty vile and pointless article.

That's the first DM link I've clicked on in a long time. I need a bath now.
