Samantha Brick, the woman who wrote about how being so beautiful has been both a blessing and a curse, was on a British morning talk show today to defend herself against the the shit storm she's encountered in the two days since her Daily Mail piece was published. Weirdly, during the entire 10-minute interview, everyone ignored the ugly elephant in the room: Brick's face. It has, after all, been at the center of this controversy, as most people's problem with her article wasn't so much what she said but that she wasn't pretty enough to be saying it. (Barbara Walters concurs!) It's kind of a shame, since it could've started a much more interesting conversation about how women are conditioned from such an early age to aspire to a certain beauty standard, but damnit if they aren't delusional bitches to think they've actually achieved it.
