    Default She's Back - why was I born so Beautiful

    Samantha Brick: Joan Collins is right. Any woman who wants to stay beautiful needs to diet every day | Mail Online

    I'm just like Joan Collins! - pure click bait gotta to hand it to her

    When my husband and I invited friends to dinner, I knew they'd want to bring something along as a contribution to the evening and made a point of saying that wasn't necessary.

    So when one friend arrived and thrust a hefty box of chocolates into my hands, I rewarded her with ice-cold contempt rather than the grateful smile she was clearly expecting.

    At the end of the evening, that very expensive box of hand-made French chocolates was consigned to the bottom of the kitchen bin, the contents ruined by the coffee dregs I had deliberately poured over them.

    I am 42 years old and have been on a permanent diet for the past 30 years. The logic is simple and irrefutable: any self-respecting woman wants to be thin, and to be thin you need to spend your life on a diet.

    I don't believe overweight is ever attractive. Whether we like it or not, we live in an age and a part of the world where men and women regard thin as beautiful.

    As an actress, this is something Joan Collins understands only too well, revealing last week that the secret to maintaining a perfect hourglass figure into your 70s is spending every day on a diet.

    Joan, 79, said she controlled her weight during a long career so that she could stay in work - an entirely laudable attitude.

    Like Joan, I have no intention of letting my body slide flabbily into middle age. I believe that any woman with a modicum of self-respect should watch her figure with the same vigour. Is it any coincidence that Joan is still attractive and in demand for work?

    No, its only purpose is to drive advertising revenue for The Daily Mail, they get more people reading these types of stories than real journalism.

    Stupid, sour-faced cow.

    Where's the grace? Where's the restraint?

    It's in the French, that's where.

    So you want to be a victim? Go on a diet and make sure that everyone you know pays for it.

    If you want to be a normal, well-balanced (in all senses of the word) person, see your food intake as a life style choice that you make.

    Ooh, that type makes me so mad!
