I think the internet is a great invention and, quite frankly, most of us would struggle to live without it.
But it also has a horrible side that allows people to dish out abuse and hide their identity.
I think some of the abuse that’s come her way is disgusting and an ugly reflection of how easy it is to put others down
I imagine some people assume that, because it’s on the internet, it’s not the same as bullying someone face to face.
But I think these people need to really take a long, hard look at themselves and question why they feel the need to put others down all the time.
Does it make them feel better? Do they feel empowered by making others feel inferior?
I’m sure you’ve all heard the news this week about Kim Kardashian being robbed in Paris by a gang who stole more than £8m of jewellery.
Whilst some have rallied around the star, many have taken this opportunity to rub salt in the wound by dishing out vile abuse which I simply can’t and won’t repeat.
James Corden put it perfectly when he tweeted: ‘People making jokes about @KimKardashian tonight would do well to remember that she’s a mother, a daughter, a wife, a friend. Be nice or shut up.’
I couldn’t have said it better myself. Many have hit out saying that the reality star shouldn’t have flaunted her riches and that this somehow meant she ‘deserved’ what happened to her.
But let’s remember – and I reiterate what James said – that she’s a human being and has feelings just like the rest of us.
Just imagine for a second the terror she must have felt and what would have gone through her mind as robbers tied her up in the bathroom of her Parisian apartment.
Does she deserve that because she allegedly ‘flaunts’ her life on social media?
I think some of the abuse that’s come her way is disgusting and an ugly reflection of how easy it is to put others down.
It doesn’t matter what your opinion of Kim is. It doesn’t matter what mine is either really because I’m not writing about her.
No, I’m writing about the haters out there that see someone else’s misfortune and exploit it.
Get a life of your own and stop commenting on others.
I’M ALL FOR HEALTHY EATING, BUT IT’S HITTING MY BANK BALANCE
I’ve been on a real healthy eating kick over the past couple of weeks.
I don’t know why really – maybe it’s because I know Christmas is just around the corner and I’d best start getting into shape.
Whatever it is, I’ve become slightly obsessed, which is fine except it’s had a real negative impact on my bank balance.
Promoters of healthy and ‘clean’ eating proclaim that you can eat well and not break the bank, but for the less knowledgeable it really isn’t that easy.
I made a raw carrot cake at the weekend and the coconut flour alone cost me £6. There were at least another eight ingredients to add to that.
Then Matt says to me: ‘Cheryl, it doesn’t taste of anything.’
SO FUNNY THE ENTIRE AUDIENCE WAS CRYING WITH LAUGHTER
I went to see the new Bridget Jones movie this week and I recommend it to anyone who liked the first two films.
It’s absolutely brilliant and such a laugh.
I went in a girlie group with my mum, sisters and some friends.
We were supposed to go to the 7pm showing, but stupidly didn’t book in advance and it was so packed we had to wait until 8pm to get in.
So my advice ladies (and guys) is to book in advance and that way you can be sure of your seat.
The film has such funny moments that the entire audience was crying with laughter.
This was a good job as it’s usually me that can be heard roaring above everyone else.
All in all, a must-watch, feel good movie!
