Biography Samantha is an ex-television executive, TV consultant, journalist, writer, yogi and French housewife and is most famous for her controversially honest account of her own beauty.

She was born in Birmingham but now lives in South-West France with her French husband, artisan carpenter Pascal and teenage stepson Antonio.

Samantha has made documentaries and reality shows for ITV, BBC and Channel 4 in the UK and for MTV, Fox and Bravo in the US.

Her famous article from the Daily Mail on 3rd April 2012 made headlines around the world for being self-indulgent and too self-gratifying. The title of the article was: There are downsides to looking this pretty. Why women hate me for being beautiful.

The article outlines the hardships of being so attractive and how difficult it is to be subject to jealousy and envy from other woman. “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. Even bartenders frequently shoo my credit card away when I try to settle my bill.”

She says she’s been dropped by countless friends who “felt threatened if I was merely in the presence of their other halves.”

“My detractors have simply proved my point. Their level of anger only underlines that no one in this world is more reviled than a pretty woman. No one bothered to ask how I was coping. But what everyone wanted to know, vulture-like, was what it’s like to be so hated and reviled.”
