I have only come across her in relation to Spencer Matthews (who is a bit of a dick)
I assume she was famous for something in Ireland other than marrying Brian Mc Fadden?

Since Bryan she's done a few kind of documentary style things, she comes across as quite nice, don't know about pre Bryan

She’s not even that famous over here for marrying McFadden.

She was in some shite Irish scripted reality show for a year or two, disappeared with McFadden and that’s the last I’ve heard of her until she appeared flogging Daz or Persil or whatever brand it is.

AurorayRuben Tue 15-Dec-20 15:34:54

She's everywhere here.
She does a slot on a rubbish day time show.
I'm convinced she hamms up the Irish accent to sound more appealing but just sounds thick and Spencer copies her pronouncation in a very insulting way.

She was on a reality show here in Ireland.
Saw her in Dunnes stores Grafton Street once before she married Spencer. Very pretty girl.
I don't know what she saw in Brian Mc Fadden.
Her first cousin is married to Jamie Heaslip, ex Irieh Rugby captain.

I like Vogue, she's been on a reality show that I didn't have any interest on but I like her on the travel show she does. Her documentaries were grand. She seems very down to earth.

* I don't know what she saw in Brian Mc Fadden.*

Neither does she. She was recently quoted saying that thinking about her marriage to him makes her “a little bit sick in her mouth” hmm

I’m no particular fan — I certainly only came across her first on that Bear Grylls survival programme — but other than some dubious opinions about internment camps, I don’t think she’s especially ‘thick’, though. She has a degree in construction design and quantity surveying.

AurorayRuben Wed 16-Dec-20 11:31:23

I find her annoying at times. Herself and 'Spenny' are mismatched.
He has no resect for her culture..looks down on the Irish, if anything.
I remember on their Reality show while looking a properties to buy in Ireland he made a comment when the Estate Agent said there were good schools nearby, saying that Theo was definitely not being educated in Ireland!!

Well, surely that's on him, not her, if he's a xenophobe?

An he is hardly an advert for Eton's educational standards himself.

AurorayRuben Wed 16-Dec-20 12:54:51

Of course it's on him!
But she seems to not be bothered by it which is odd seen as she is so keen to get back to Ireland.

Famous for being famous (I think she was on Fade Street wasn't she?) imo. I don't mind her, she just seems a bit pointless really. Don't know how she keeps getting work with RTE, must be some pull there!

TheVanguardSix Wed 16-Dec-20 13:00:42

I predict a second divorce. I’m not saying that to be nasty, though it is a nasty thing to say. But I don’t think their marriage will go the distance.

I feel she is Amy Huberman's spiritual sister. In fact, I'm not convinced they aren't the same person.

@AurorayRuben, I hear you, and I think he's a terrible idiot, but to be honest, I came across that kind of entrenched anti-Irish attitude so often during my 20 years and more of living in England that I think I eventually became desensitised. It's still held by a surprising number of people.

AurorayRuben Wed 16-Dec-20 13:09:40

Absolutely Nore.
I am married to an English man who completly respects and embraces my Irishness without being a 'Plastic Paddy'.
I love living in Engand while maintaining my culture (without the catholicism!!)
I think it's very important to respect each others' cultures in order to go the distance in a relationship.
Why does she refer to herself as 'Mom' though ?
Isn't that an American thing?
My kids call me Mum.
I called mine Mammy.

I have Irish friends who use Mom. One from Cork and one from Limerick.

Oh really? Why does her Irish accent make her sound thick exactly?

LadyEloise Wed 16-Dec-20 13:47:51

@AurorayRuben , my very elderly grandmother and grandaunts always referred to their ( long dead) mother as Mom as do my younger cousins to their own mother now.
They were all brought up in Munster.

BuffaloMozzerella Wed 16-Dec-20 13:50:19

I followed her on Instagram for a while - I like her. I imagine she's a good laugh and seems to have a great positive outlook.

Agree Spencer comes across as a nob. Perhaps he's different behind closed doors.

Nikhedonia Wed 16-Dec-20 13:56:53

I quite like her, she seems relatively normal and I've always thought she worked quite well for Spencer as she didn't seem willing to put up with his nonsense in the way others have done.

AurorayRuben Wed 16-Dec-20 15:21:17

So Mom is used in Ireland too?
I didn't know that but then, I've been out of Ireland for a long time.
My nieces and nephews call their mother Mammy shortened to Mam.

Nope. Derives from “mamaí”. Used across large parts of Munster. It’s a flatter “o” sound than the American “Maaawm”

liverpool1981 Wed 16-Dec-20 16:09:56

I met Spencer once and actually he is very nice and not a snob at all even thought you would think he would be

liverpool1981 Wed 16-Dec-20 16:14:01

Though

That makes sense. And I suppose it’s where the American Mom originated too.

So we Irish can take credit for that as well as Halloween. And lots of other things too I’m sure.
