About Jamie Vardy's new wife?

I'm quite prepared to be flamed over this, but I can't be the only one to think that there is something really off about her? She is really milking his new found fame for all it's worth, desperately trying to turn herself into the new Victoria Beckham/Coleen Rooney. First it was the newspaper interviews, then the lingerie shoot, followed by the big OK wedding spread.

Now very conveniently she was caught up in all the trouble between England and Russia fans over the weekend and ended up getting tear gassed. Managing to get her face on the front pages of course, and this morning I woke up to see her being interviewed via satellite on Good Morning Britain about her terrible experience, looking all serious. I thought it was just me, but you could tell from the way he was questioning her that Piers Morgan also thought she was talking complete bollocks.

Now I know she's not the first woman to use her footballing husbands fame to boost her own career prospects but he's apparently estranged from his entire family, parents and grandparents because they dislike her and they didn't attend the wedding. Then you hear that she has form for selling kiss and tell stories going back years, I can't help but think that she's been waiting her whole life for this gravy train to arrive.

Am I just being a massive bitch here?

YABU and verging on the tragic side. HTH

Yes you are... but you're also right imo!

Yes. That's it.

Yes you are being a bitch but I wouldn't be at all surprised if you're right. It's sad that it's cost him his family. I hope she's worth it.

Awful to call a women a bitch. As to Mr Vardy's wife, who are any of us to judge her unless you actually know her.

Was she teargassed?

You sound lovely hmm

ShatnersBassoon Mon 13-Jun-16 18:05:18

I didn't know he had a wife, so she's obviously not that good at getting herself in the public eye.

Getting yourself tear gassed is an unbelievably extreme way to get attention, so for that allegation plus the fact you watched all of this on some crappy Piers Morgan show, YABU.

Why the hell do you know all this shit about her? I vaguely heard a headline on the radio about one footballer's wife getting caught up in the violence, and I think recognised the name in your title from that. But I don't even know her name (and I think it's interesting that you haven't given it in your OP even, she's merely 'Jamie Vardy's new wife').

It is very possible to avoid knowing anything about people like this, if she bothers you so much.

GretchenBeckett Mon 13-Jun-16 18:06:15

OP asked if she was being a bitch!

MeAndMy3LovelyBoys Mon 13-Jun-16 18:07:07

You have to wonder why his family don't like her.
She didn't even like him at first - wonder what changed her mind.

How terrible for the famous footballers to be exploited for their fame by the shallow, materially obsessed extremely attractive lingerie models.

NaughtToThreeSadOnions Mon 13-Jun-16 18:08:39

Are you Jamie's mother?

I understand his family boycotted the wedding and will only refer to Rebecca as "that woman"

Oh I've just read your post properly. I read the stories about the wedding and I did think there was something off about her. But then that was the first thing I'd ever read about her apart from the fact she's apparently a westlife fan and Shane filan sang at their wedding. (Dislike him and his arrogant dick of a manager very much so that also made me dislike her}

But then I know nothing else about the woman and and I don't like to actually judge on that little information

MintyChapstick Mon 13-Jun-16 18:08:53

She claimed she got caught up in the fan violence and was tear gassed. I find it a bit hard to believe in all honesty.

RJnomore1 Mon 13-Jun-16 18:09:18

Are you the mother in law, apparently they aren't keen on her either.

ElspethFlashman Mon 13-Jun-16 18:09:37

She gave some interview where she basically said (can't remember the wording) that she was hot headed and had a mouth on her. So at least she's frank about it.

I think her remarks after she slept with Peter Andre were crass in the extreme, but I don't particularly judge her for being ambitious in terms of her career. It has worked out very very well for Coleen Rooney so why wouldn't she take heed of the WAG business model?

In fairness I certainly don't blame her for his estrangement from his family - that's down to him, imo. He is an adult.

Handsoffmysweets Mon 13-Jun-16 18:09:55

Tbh I think the negative opinions come from the fact she has 3 children by 3 different men (1 being Vardy), has sold kiss and tell stories and 'apparently' was known for chasing wealthy footballers. Gossipy people tend to be quite judgey about things like that...

RestlessTraveller Mon 13-Jun-16 18:10:08

Yes, you're being a bitch. I'm no Victoria Beckham fan but to suggest she had to use her husband to make money is laughable. When I actually saw what Rebekah Vardy said about the police treatment of the fans I actually thought good on her for for speaking out.

Cutecat78 Mon 13-Jun-16 18:10:47

Yeah - TBH I thought the same and there was a less than flattering article about her just before they got married (although her ex H was interviewed so he probably has an axe to grindgrin).

She has 3 kids by three different men and his family refused to attend the wedding....

Handsoffmysweets Mon 13-Jun-16 18:12:27

Agree with restless. I think it's a positive thing that she has spoken out on behalf of the fans about what went on.

I'm not the mother in law, no.
