Layla and Sam Break Up – Why? There Could Be Someone New

Layla and Sam the reality TV couple from Big Brother 2012 have called it quits. They hooked up in the house declared true love and it was only a couple of weeks ago in a weekly magazine that Layla was saying she wanted a big ring from him.

However reality TV romance can be fickly thing,  with Sam tweeting the news to confirm the rumours that have been circulating.

He did not say why they had busted up, but it would appear she may have moved onto another guy, rugby player Quade Cooper.

Layla flew up to Brisbane to see him play and clearly they don’t mind being photographed together either, as here they are in a fan shot and they were tweeting about having lunch together. On the show Layla admitted she like sportmen, and that some of her friends were WAG’s.

If she is dating Quade Cooper it would interesting to know if there is tension on the Celebrity Apprentice set between her and Stephanie Rice who used to be in a relationship with him.

There are rumours that Stephanie has had run ins with Roxy Jacenko and Dawn Fraser so is Layla also going to flick her bitch switch as well?

Whatever the case Celebrity Apprentice looks like it could be a cracker this year.

I don’t know what this new guy is like but I thought Sam was well mannered and cute, and that Layla was punching above her weight.

After the success of MKR (for its drama), Channel 9 will be silly not to use drama for reality show.

I think CA will be interesting this year.

A rugby playing boxer who was charged with burglary in 2009,…poor Sam can’t compete with that.

4 Littlepetal { 02.25.13 at 8:24 am }

And he also need to be mothered. I read Steph Rise has to cook and freeze food for him while she is away in training. Can’t see anything attractive with Copper.

Looks like Layla is a sucker for ‘famous’ people and Sam was probably just a ‘common’ person famous only for BB so not a ‘real’ celebrity like Cooper! She is probably as dump as she was ‘playing -not’ during BB. It’s all about her obsession about being ‘famous’, that’s why she went into BB and now trying to use other ‘famous’ people to be talked about. So shallow.

Yeah, I thought that name sounded familiar. So will be interesting to see if there is tension between here and Stephanie. I thought the tension was between Prue and Roxy. Apart from Prue being in it, I’m looking forward to this season. Had hoped Prue would be fired early on, but from her Tweets, seems to unfortunately still be in it. God I hope she doesn’t win it.

Oo thx for the gossip! It’s always interesting to hear what everyone is up to afterwards. Most relationships don’t last after the cameras are gone i imagine. And most fade into normality, even though majority of contestants were constantly talking about all the offers and opportunities after the show. Will be interesting to see if anyone scored anything besides Layla on the Apprentice!

8 A.P { 02.25.13 at 9:22 am }

Oh, wow, we didn’t see this coming, who would have thought!
I thought it was a true romance, destined to last forever NOT!

9 Erin { 02.25.13 at 9:28 am }

I really want to like Layla, but i’m starting to see that her true (famewhore) colours might be coming out…
I always thought that Sam was far more serious about relationship than Layla, but Layla was just going along for the ride until something better came along… they appeared to be inseparable right up until Layla went to Sydney, and still appear to be following each other on social media so hopefully it is a mutual decision and not because either one did anything stupid!

10 Daisy { 02.25.13 at 9:35 am }

I hope Sam got a better drop-off line than her dreadlock millionaire that she didn’t mind hooking up with despite his having a girlfriend.
Her excuse for dropping him for Sam was lame and transparent.

11 Golo i Wesolo { 02.25.13 at 10:47 am }

Did anybody seriously think this relationship had legs?

Look at the way they spoke about each other towards the end of Big Brother. I remember when Sam was asked if he really cared about Layla, he couldn’t give an affirmative response. Also, the fact that Layla has now moved on to a new guy in warp speed shows she never really loved Sam to begin with either.

The relationship was clearly a career move for both of them – not just Layla. Those who can’t see that are delusional.

12 brain dead dave { 02.25.13 at 1:39 pm }

Oscar Pistorius’ relationship didn’t have legs.

13 Izobel2 { 02.25.13 at 1:54 pm }

Boom Boom BDD!

14 Gabby { 02.25.13 at 1:55 pm }

Surprised it lasted this long.

15 Gabby { 02.25.13 at 1:59 pm }

I saw an advertisement for the Biggest Loser coming soon. Presumably after Masterchef. Fathers and sons, mothers and daughters. Does RR cover it? I hope so!!

16 Bolders { 02.25.13 at 2:29 pm }

There she goes, on the WAG trail. That didnt take long.

Girl has a nose for fame[?] like a bloodhound.

17 A.P { 02.25.13 at 5:17 pm }

Gabby@15 , yes RR does cover The Biggest Loser, like last year when Margie won, that attracted lots of comments, she was BDD’s favourite NOT!
She was a bully just like Ben.

18 Emma { 02.25.13 at 6:55 pm }

She looks a bit different. Thinner in the face?

19 Carole { 02.26.13 at 9:54 am }

What about The Amazing Race, does anyone recap that one?

20 Ted { 02.26.13 at 5:27 pm }

Actually I hear a different story about Quade Cooper and another housemate, Estelle. Very early days but remember you heard it here first.

Don’t know what happened with Sam and Layla but she is prone to move on pretty quick, anyone remember George

21 Alexandra { 03.01.13 at 1:42 am }

Its funny people presume Layla dumped George for Sam…. but people conveniently forget George wanted nothing more than a hook up and wanted to back with his ex…
People also seem to forget the times Sam admitted to choosing to win BB over staying with Layla.
Its a shame they didn’t last. I really hope the break up wasn’t for fame reasons.

[…] she met on the show, however it looks like she may now have hooked up with Quade Cooper. (Source: Reality Ravings) Related PostsMarch 18, 2012 — Reality TV Shows Nominated (or not nominated!) for the 2012 […]

23 Cindy { 03.14.13 at 9:28 pm }

She was only interested in George once she found out he had $$$$$ Layla dropped George the moment Sam Went into the house.Then she clung to him to feed her ego. As soon as she thought she had further options she cut him off with no contact. She doesn’t care about ANYONE but herself. Will not surprise me if she’s chasing Quade’s tail to try and lift her own name higher. Look at the story she made up and allowed to happen about poor Sam and Angie.
Her whole personality is a fassad. She’s not a nice person she’s played australia pretending she’s sweet and innocent when she’s cunning and sly. Black widow.

24 Reality Raver { 03.14.13 at 9:32 pm }

What was the story she made up about Angie and Sam?

25 Cindy { 03.26.13 at 5:23 pm }

She told a gossip magazine ( don’t remember which one) That Angie had been hooking up with Sam and did not deny that was why they had broken up.. When it was completely false as far as we can see… Yet she allowed the allegations to fly publicly for Angie and Sam all to boost her own profile. Absolutely horrible social climber who does not give a damn about the truth or anyone around her!

26 Julianne { 03.27.13 at 10:40 pm }

This is so entertaining! U are all acting like you know Layla personally from watching her on a tv show for a few weeks? Wow.. Seriously get a life

27 brain dead dave { 03.27.13 at 11:16 pm }

It’s more like three months , Julianne and it doesn’t take that long to establish that someone is a shallow cretin, especially on Big Brother.

28 Daisy { 03.27.13 at 11:21 pm }

Julianne, we’re entertaining? You’re welcome.

29 Cindy { 04.03.13 at 3:04 pm }

3 Months is long enough to establish a good character judgement. She’s nothing but a fame grabber. Let’s see who she stood on to get to where she is in a years time. No loyalty nor does she have any sense of class. Sense of entitlement she does however.
Wait and see how drunk she gets before she embarrasses and brings Cooper’s name down with her in public.

30 Anna { 04.07.13 at 10:56 pm }

this is very sad to hear because I thought that sam was a pretty decent guy all things considering. layla i liked well enough but slowly over time got a bit over, more so now! i loved her sweetness but following her on twitter just after BB ended i saw some of her posts when she went on a bashing rant whenever she didnt get the service she expected from clubs and stores.. i do see her as cunning as what she did with george … and quade cooper?? not exactly a better choice over sam. i do acknowledge that BB does have a way to make audience perceive the housemates a certain way.. but layla wasnt portrayed anything other than sweet and a little bit naive.. so for viewers to pick up the other side is their own judgment. she sounds like nothing but a famewh0re.

31 Psychic { 04.07.13 at 11:44 pm }

I saw through this phoney b*tch during the first week of big brother. She’s nothing but a fat sl*t who moves on from one man to the next, using them and stepping stones. I’m surprised the men will even stay with her sloppy cellulitey ass. I guess they didn’t, she had bonehead George who kept talking about using her for sex only, then Sam, who was rooting angie behind her back the whole time. I guess she isn’t popular with men afterall. This footballer guy will dump her ass no doubt, and she will have no one and she will probably try to find some other Z listed to suck off.

32 canthandlethetruth { 04.24.13 at 9:47 am }

busy body with no morals or intergrity. she has no value for herself.No dignity.she is a cheaper version of kardashian.

33 TheInsight { 08.02.13 at 12:12 am }

Layla is 100% a fame whore she even tries to compare herself to Kim kardashian…. With major fail. She is a bully and is always bagging people who don’t like her she loves conflict. It is interesting to see her get angry… Her bug eyes look like they’re gonna pop out her head! DEFINATELY a crazy bitch… So disappointed that some Aussies are falling for her BS she doesn’t give a shit about her “fans” and literally does nothing allllll day but sit on twitter and post lame shyt she is actually a complete lazy loser…. Anytime someone posts on her threads saying they don’t like her or tell the truth she says “who are you” “you know me but I don’t know you” as if to say she’s famous and everyone else is nothing she once said to a young girl “you are nothing to me, I’ve got everything on you” and then goes on celeb apprentice crying saying her charity was lifeline? If I ever saw her I would fight the extreme urge to slap the bitch. EVIL FAT MINIPUTATIVE BLOOD SUCKING FAMEWHORE!

34 TheInsight { 08.02.13 at 12:23 am }

And it is true about her making up that Sam and Angie hooked up… She did an interview and said they cheated. Later Angie was furious (understandable) and posted on twitter that is was completely untrue, even angies mum told Layla to shut up and said angies grandmother was so upset because Layla was posting things (as per her usual day) on twitter for sympathy AND obviously wanting people to hate Angie and Sam the only sympathy should go to Sam and Angie not the evil fat floppy titted EF head. And she made this up so she was free to try get in quades pants this is just a photo of her trying Estelle recently took a photo with him too… Layla constantly mentions quade in tweets and he never speaks to her cause she is a loser.
