As long as we’re blaming the victim, did any one catch this wing nut Louise Van Der Velde who claims that women should have plastic surgery to stay attractive to men? Because if you don’t, he’s going to wander — and It’s All Your Fault!
According to the Daily Mail (which never ceases to give me crazy cheater stories)…
Louise was on the ITV programme to discuss comments she had made to MailOnline last week, where she claimed that women in their forties should get plastic surgery or face their partner running off with a younger model.
Louise, who runs a relationship therapy centre in central London, believes ladies only have themselves to blame if their husband starts to find other women more attractive.
Don’t worry, chumps. Louise isn’t a real therapist, she just likes to think of herself as one. Apparently, that’s enough to get you on national media. Her credentials are “Tantric sex teacher” and expert training in “Emotional Freedom Technique,” a form of energy healing discredited by scientists (you know, those un-sexy people with actual credentials).
Louise told MailOnline last week: ‘I think for the people who do want to have a monogamous relationship – the women are very quick to point the finger.
‘They say that their husband is messing about and he’s left them for someone else, but I think it is absolutely the woman’s responsibility when they have let themselves go over the years.
‘We are the creators of our own destiny, if your fella cheats, you’ve created it yourself.
‘The men have a right to look elsewhere, they have a right to be sleeping with an attractive woman.’
Is anyone else getting tired of making the same damn arguments? Christie Brinkley, Hale Berry, Eva Longoria — many exquisitely beautiful woman are cheated on. I’m sure we could also get a show of hands from chumps everywhere on how the affair partner was a huge trade DOWN, by all superficial measures — height, weight, age, income. Sure, there are cheaters who go for the silicon Barbie doll look (I’m talking to you, sex addicts) — but those people are generally paying customers. And of course, even the most good-looking affair partner still has shit for character.
Steering clear of cakes and keeping in shape with regular visits to the gym is not enough though – Louise thinks that women should start to have breast augmentation, liposuction, fillers and the rest as soon as parts of the body start to sag.
She said: ‘A lot of my female clients in their forties and fifties come in and they’re unhappy that their husbands are playing away but they’ve let themselves go.
‘But no one’s really happy with themselves when they are overweight and not looking good.
‘Even when you buy a new dress you feel good – looking good is feeling good.
‘I actively encourage my clients to get plastic surgery and it’s received fairly well.
Boy, I shouldn’t have eaten that cupcake. I didn’t steer clear of enough cake, that’s why he cheated! For the record, my cheater gained about 60 pounds after we were married. Is sociopathy caloric?
Van Der Velde attacked the women on the ITV panel for being hypocrites who really actually DO care about their appearance.
Yeah, how dare you argue for respectful treatment in relationships — YOU WEAR LIPSTICK TOO! Why couldn’t someone make the obvious point that a lack of lipstick or a saggy ass didn’t make him cheat? Of course we all want to look our best, but neither our flaws nor our attributes COMPEL people to abuse us. That’s on THEM and their shit character.
But clearly we’re not dealing with a great intellect here.
‘I decided that in my fortieth year I wanted to be the fittest I’ve ever been, so I had my boobs done.”
Hey Louise, I have a plastic surgery suggestion — a brain implant.
