Samantha Brick. Again. This time we're all fat failures unless we starve ourselves.

Some of her finest quotes in case anybody doesn't want to click.

"I am 42 years old and have been on a permanent diet for the past 30 years. The logic is simple and irrefutable: any self-respecting woman wants to be thin, and to be thin you need to spend your life on a diet."

"I don't believe overweight is ever attractive. Whether we like it or not, we live in an age and a part of the world where men and women regard thin as beautiful."

"I have no intention of letting my body slide flabbily into middle age. I believe that any woman with a modicum of self-respect should watch her figure with the same vigour."

"I was glad to see the back of Easter this month, as it seems to have been hijacked by the greedy masses who regard it as a free pass to gorge on chocolate."

"For three decades, self-denial has been my best friend. And one of my biggest incentives is that I know men prefer slim women."

"I have only ever dated men who kept a strict eye on my figure. My partners are not only boyfriends but weight-loss coaches."

"In the workplace, male bosses will always give the top job to a woman who looks fit and in control, rather than one who looks like a bulging sack in danger of imminent cardiac arrest."

"I fainted with hunger on one occasion - a minor hitch, eclipsed by the fact that I was being asked out on lots of dates."

"I am 5ft 11in and slimmed down to a size 8. One of my lecturers was so worried she pulled me aside to voice her concern. I put her intervention down to jealousy, as she was a size 16."

"Luckily for me, there is no better weight-loss incentive than a Frenchman. Pascal would not tolerate a fat wife and has told me that if I put on weight, our marriage is over. What more motivation do I need?"

"The world admonished Kate Moss for claiming that 'nothing tastes as good as skinny feels' but I'd go further. As I see it, there is nothing in life that signifies failure better than fat."


I'm thinking of giving her the benefit of the doubt. She sounds as though she still has an eating disorder and is possibly in an emotionally abusive relationship, so isn't thinking straight.

On the other hand, she may just want another five minutes' of fame...

As someone who has never been happy with my figure (despite the fact i'm in a 'healthy' BMI range) this woman has made me feel like utter poo this morning.

But i know she's wrong. This is just her opinion. My friend is about four dress sizes bigger than me and is by far the prettiest woman i know. Size doesn't equal beauty. Nor does it guarantee success.

Personally, i'd have thought an employer would rather give a promotion to someone who was larger than someone fainting with hunger.

Please can we just ignore her?

When she was in Big Brother [yes I do sometimes watch it, as I enjoy the psychology of it], she seemed quite reasonably normal. Not at all like her "media" persona.
So I can only conclude that the stuff she writes, and says on This Morning [never seen her on there, dont watch that!] is not the real Samantha Brick

she's as self publicist who knows how to yank the chain,for publicity
she's in control of her output,knows some where her dribble will result in tv slot

never heard of her before now.

shame on anyone who lets this drivel get to them. Have some sense.

reminder; thighs are not supposed to be thinner than knees. That's starvation. And the opinions of the junkie Kate Moss are also not worth the electrons.

Samantha Thick makes me sick

Her Husbannd has a weight problem if one is to go by those standards.

How sad are these women when they are taking their last breath one day as we all will. They will have the comfort of knowing their life was spend starving themselves . So at the final moments they can be put in the ground wearing their size 6 dress . As friends and family enjoy the cake at the wake . Eat drink and be happy for life is but a moment.

Her interview says she's had male attention 6 times in her entire 41 year old life.

Normal I think.
