Megan Gale Bitchslaps Some Scrags And Now They Are Slapping Back
Normally I get a bit frustrated when journos take stories from tweets of Twitter, but in this case it was nearly story of the day, in reality TV land.
The new Project Runway host Megan Gale took matters into her own hands when she heard two females bitching about her at the next table in a cafe.
The Daily Telegraph reports Megan who is in the current Who Magazine most beautiful list listened to the two girls as they said negative things about her appearance.
“Sitting in a café listening to 2 girls reading out loud article in paper re: Who Mag’s Most Beautiful Issue. They are commenting on me….”
“… They don’t know I can hear them.And they are being a little kind.. But mostly nasty.. What would you do in this situation?? M xx”
“Wow.. They are really dissecting my looks! This is quite remarkable to hear… I’m literally less than a metre away from them..”
Two minutes later Gale decided to take the upper hand and confront her detractors.
“Alright, I’m going to say something… I think I have to no? Stand by tweeps for what happens next!!…”
Five minutes later she tweeted again.
“God I wish I could have filmed that whole entire scene!! Ok so while they were in the midst if (sic) picking me to bits, I lifted my head… which was down, tweeting & obscured by baseball cap, smiled & sweetly said “hi.” One clutched her her heart,closed eyes &said Oh my God!”
“The other, most venomous of the two smile at me &had the audacity to say hi oh my god how are you?!…”
“Still smiling, I said ‘You should be careful what you say guys, you never know who might be listening”…
“The back pedalling was quite interesting but their extremely chatty table became dead silent in a matter of seconds. They just left… Mxx”
Smackdown. Let us hope she brings that same attitude when judging the contestants on Project Runway Australia.
The two girls Megan Gale was tweeting about have now hit back saying her tweeting about the incident for publicity purposes. (see Daily Tele article). It raises an interesting point – would Megan Gale think her tweets were mainstream newsworthy? And if she did does this mean it is ok to court publicity when you want it, but when it infringes your privacy it is not OK. Previously Megan Gale has found the publicity on her private life intrusive.
What do you guys think? I am conflicted on this one.
