Samantha Brick, what an oxymoron.

Samantha Brick is one of the latest contestants to be mercilessly booted out of the CBB house, and we all know what that means… another one of her insightful articles is on its way!

Despite claiming that she could ‘never’ write about any of her fellow housemates, the journalist announced as soon as she left the house that she will ‘definitely’ be penning a piece about her CBB experience.

Self-proclaimed beauty Samantha, who wrote that controversial piece for the Daily Mail, told host Brian Dowling that her article will focus specifically on Rhian and Danica.

Samantha, who disagrees with the glamour girls’ career choices and the way they ‘treat men’, said that Danica’s ‘moral compass is set in a completely different way’ to her own.


The journalist also stated that she “would not have done anything Danica does”. Hmm, not sure about that. In the article which made “Samantha Brick” a household name, the journalist admits to accepting gifts from men she doesn’t know and exploiting men to get ahead professionally. Which, as far as I understand, is what Danica does for a living.

Samantha has questioned the concept of Danica’s ‘wishlist’ website, yet she herself has bragged openly about the countless men who have bestowed her with gifts – and who have done so purely because of her looks.

“I’ve regularly had bottles of bubbly or wine sent to my restaurant table by men I don’t know,” Samantha wrote in her now infamous article. “Once, a well-dressed chap bought my train ticket when I was standing behind him in the queue, while there was another occasion when a charming gentleman paid my fare as I stepped out of a cab in Paris.


“Another time, as I was walking through London’s Portobello Road market, I was tapped on the shoulder and presented with a beautiful bunch of flowers. Even bar tenders frequently shoo my credit card away when I try to settle my bill.

“And whenever I’ve asked what I’ve done to deserve such treatment, the donors of these gifts have always said the same thing: my pleasing appearance and pretty smile made their day.” In light of these comments, I find it difficult to understand how Samantha can judge Danica for garnering and enjoying male attention.

It could be that she simply disagrees with how Danica makes a living, but how can she criticize the glamour model in such terms when she herself has admitted to using sex appeal for her own professional gain? “When you have a male boss, it’s a different game,” Samantha wrote. “I have flirted to get ahead at work, something I’m sure many women do.”


Given Samantha’s own exploitative attitude toward men, I’m not sure why she’s quite so rattled by Danica’s behaviour.  Could it be that the journo is, in fact, a little bit jealous of the young model? After all, she has claimed that “older women” are  ‘the most hostile to beautiful women… because they feel their own bloom fading”.

Samantha has also said that “women find nothing more annoying than someone else being the most attractive girl in a room”. Well, Danica was patently the hottest gal in the house, and Samantha – who is both older and arguably less attractive – is annoyed by her. No prizes for guessing why.

Oh how ironic it is that Samantha has become a prime example of her own bitter theories! I think she should give up on writing articles, set up a wishlist, sit back and just wait for all the bottles of bubbly to roll in. After all, she is the most beautiful woman in the room…. Unless, of course, that room contains Danica.
