Now that her mum is no longer with her, which was the reason she never left. I just hope she finds people who will love her talent and appreciate it. It's being wasted and she will never get to her full potential. It's sad to watch and I don't think AIBU at all for thinking this.

not sure she reads MN for advice - try emailing her agent

Who is she? Do you know her? Bit personal?

AnyFucker Mon 04-Dec-17 23:19:05

Don't tell us, tell her

Or maybe don't. Cos that would be weird. And strange.

Are you alluding to her behaviour on Strictly? The faux vulnerable manipulation act to draw votes?

I actually know a little about her relationship with her mum via a 3rd party so its typical to 'blame' her mum for her not breaking America

thatcatpidgeon Mon 04-Dec-17 23:26:09

Looked her up - an ex x-factor contestant currently appearing on strictly apparently. You seem a little over invested OP. Time for a new hobby perhaps?

Are you Dan Wootton?

hey quencher, I'd suggest you come over to the glitterball threads but there are marmite responses to Alex over there too. I like her and think she's damned if she does, damned if she doesn't.
Self-deprecating/modest? Then she's labelled Humblebrag.
Jubilant/strong confident role model? Then she's labelled Arrogant.
In grief over her recently departed mum? Then she's labelled Faking It/Milking it.
Poor woman cannot win.

I have no opinion on this matter but I chuckled at the name of the post 😂😂😂 I often say to my DP I should go to New York to keep my sanity 👏🏻👏🏻 I don't know why but I think if I hint at enough he might surprise me with an amazing NY trip 😂😂

HangryHanderson Mon 04-Dec-17 23:43:35

OP can't be Dan Wootton as he did a hatchet job on her not long ago. Someone on the Strictly threads said a 'meltdown' was bollocks and she was simply upset over being told to dance for her dead mum far too invested

HangryHanderson Mon 04-Dec-17 23:45:09

Dan Wooton is a huge cock though. Still haven't forgiven him for his rank hypocrisy when George Michael died.

What in the what?

I hope you get your trip @mumof2sarah .

Dan Wooton makes my blood boil.

Back to Alex. I really think there is just too much negativity. Every time she tries to show her face, it's like people are waiting to pounce on her. This is not just with being on strictly.

I didn't have to say much for the people to come out the woodwork ready for attack.

@ghostyslovesheets I only mentioned her mum because she was not willing to stay away from her. I understand it (Not personally but logically) and I think it's a brave thing todo.

NoMudNoLotus Mon 04-Dec-17 23:55:22

Really really do not like the woman .

GabsAlot Mon 04-Dec-17 23:57:19

poor girl i know what its lik to lose your mum its horrific and i dont even know how shes getting up everyday lt alone going on tv that soon aftr

I like her and she dances beautifully. I don’t understand the hate, she seems a perfectly nice person. I didn’t like the way craig told her to dance for her mum though, she was always going to win the dance off as she was better. Silly man.

SueSueDonahue Tue 05-Dec-17 00:04:25

Funnily enough though, most adults (like me), who lose their mother don't mention it every five minutes.

I don't hate her. I guess she's trying to play the game.

I sadly just think she's unintelligent. The first or second week in Strictly and she was supposed to practise with a book on her head, and she didn't own a single book! Not one!!! A fancy apartment and not a single book.

She shouldn't go to the US though. She wouldn't make it past the first week of dancing with the stars.

BuzzKillington Tue 05-Dec-17 00:07:40

I had to google her.

Why is she so unpopular then?

Auburn2001 Tue 05-Dec-17 00:09:54

It is like the teacher's pet being ganged up on and bullied in the playground.
I don't feel like watching Strictly any more because people have been making such silly personal attacks upon her about absolutely nothing. She is not launching nuclear missiles FFS! She is a talented celebrity who is on a celebrity competition. Wish people would get a grip.
