We here at Ladies are obviously 10 pillars of feminist virtue. We would never engage in activities unbefitting successful, classy, intelligent, and hilarious women. Well, maybe those other nine wouldn’t… I on the other hand am quite guilty of one of the cardinal sins of womanhood: Girl Bashing. I really enjoy talking some shit about other women. Mostly women I don’t know. Why? I couldn’t tell you (I’m sure there are subtexts of low self-esteem, daddy issues, and borderline personality disorder bubbling below the surface). But honestly, sometimes it just feels good. Especially when it comes to the significant others of my favorite athletes. It’s really more like pointing out the pink elephant in the room. WHY IS HE WITH HER? She is (blank). Fill in the adjective that best fits. Now I don’t know these women. Perhaps they are lovely and awesome and in real life we would be BFFs. But for now, I want to talk some serious trash!
My fave target of the last few seasons: Nereida Gallardo. The Dame of Extra Time and I had a long running email convo about our intense dislike of the Spanish wench. She swept one of my fave footballers into a torrid 7 month relationship, apparently filled with sex, Playstation, and watching tv. (per The Sun and The Mirror) We haven’t heard from the Majorcan trollop in several months, since Cristiano Ronaldo unceremoniously dumped her this summer while he frolicked in America looking like an oiled-up eggplant. But she’s back in the news this week after sitting down with a Spanish tv show to dish the dirt on her famous ex.
According to the rags, she was only with him for the sex (which was good), she put out on the first night they met (tramp! I would never do such a thing…) and he bought her stuff like bags and belts. His house also has 3 levels. (ummm, okay?) Oh, and the most important piece by far, he dumped her VIA TEXT MESSAGE! Hahahahahahaha. I like to think it read something like: “N, it r ovr. KTHXBAI” (In case you didn’t know, C-Ron speaks LOLcat)
Now, I am fairly certain that she decided to open up about this slight in order to garner some sympathy from the masses. Well dear, you EPIC FAIL. I have trolled many a football blog and there is not an ounce of support out there for her. Most people think she got what she deserved. Is it really all that shocking when you dated the man purely for the sex (as she was quoted as saying by the rags) and then he doesn’t have the courtesy to dump you properly? I personally like him all the more for it. The media went on and on about how they were getting married and planning for a baby etc, when in reality he was as invested in the relationship as most real people expected him to be. That is, not at all!
I can’t really explain my dislike for this woman, other than the fact that I just don’t. She wasn’t cute enough for him. She was a failed nudie “model”. I hate when people are labeled “models” by the press when they really only had some topless test shoots. Hey, I could hire someone off the street to take naked pics of me and then post them on the net. Does that make me a model? I think not.
And so I bash. I can’t help it. I try not to be like this, but sometimes it’s too hard to fight the instinct. So what about you, dear readers. Is there anyone in your life (or in your celeb obsession life) that you just can’t contain the urge to rip on? Or am I the only one who succumbs to my desire to hate on my fellow woman?
