Did Daphne Guinness call Victoria Beckham an Ugly Pig or not, that is the question. And what a welcome distraction! I needed to cleanse my brain’s palate, between world crises, and the Daphne-Posh imbroglio is the perfect sorbet.
When you read Daphne’s denial of the stuff she swears she didn’t say, you know she’s furious. And you know she’s lying to save face, after recklessly shooting her mouth off to a reporter, who she then calls “Brutus!” According to her tweets, Daphne feels betrayed: She trusted the reporter not to make her look like a bitch.
I think Daphne is over-reacting. Who among us has not called Victoria Beckham an ugly pig at one time or another, or at least Pigface? I’m sure Vickie is used to this kind of thing. I personally love her but I know I’ve made fun of her, too.
Maybe Daphne shouldn’t have complained that Victoria has a financial backer, pointing out to the reporter Brutus that she pays for her own fashion creations with her own money. Since Daphne paid $15 million for her New York apartment, I think she should keep quiet about money but that’s just me.
Daphne, I know you’re reading this. Don’t be mad. I’m on your side. Sort of. I don’t like when you talk about killing yourself. I used to use that expression all the time too, but I’ve reconsidered. Or putting it another way, I wouldn’t use the expression so wantonly. I know you’re fragile and all that, but your’e a grown-ass women, as they say on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Start acting like one!
Now, who thinks that Brutus MADE UP Daphne’s comments in the Sunday Times? I’d like to hear from you.
Who thinks Daphne said those things, but Brutus should have known it was off the record?
How many Ugly Pigs are there in this story, including me?
Finally, who plans to follow Daphne on Twitter?
