Freezing cold? Pah! Imogen Thomas laughs in the face of weather (and fashion)
When we pop out of our house to run some errands and it’s freezing cold, we put on some woollies, some gloves, some unflattering joggers and possibly a hat.
We don’t put on some see-through leggings, some frilly knickers, some five inch heels and a crop top.
But then we aren’t Imogen Thomas and there aren’t loads of paps waiting outside our door for us to bend over and pretend to fiddle with our shoes while flashing everyone our butt.
To be honest, if we were Imogen Thomas and were guaranteed to make buckets of cash for just putting on some slightly knackered leggings we’d consider it. But we might blanch at bending over like we’re making a joke about someone bending over. It’s not the most flattering angle. And if it’s not flattering for Imogen then it definitely wouldn’t be flattering for us. Our leggings have holes in.
Imogen has recently spoken out about how she felt suicidal last year after that whole scandal went global.
“I’ve had a lot of abuse in the past year and I still get it now sometimes. I’d get called ‘sl**’ when I was out.
“People can say what they want on Twitter when they’re sitting behind a laptop. It’s people who haven’t got lives.”
“I had death threats. I had people saying, ‘I’m going to shoot you in the head, I’m going to shoot your mum, I’m going to cut up your nephew’. It was really scary. I don’t know how anyone can be so vicious.
“I was on antidepressants and I turned to alcohol. How can any girl cope with all that? I’d drink a bottle of wine a night, more if there was another bottle there. Sometimes I’d start off in the day.
“It was a way of making myself feel different. But with the drinking comes the tears. I didn’t want to go out, I wasn’t in the mood, and I was scared someone would glass me.
“I’m normally an outgoing person, really bubbly, but I died inside — wouldn’t any girl if that happened?”
