UK reality star Rachel Christie has hit out at Rosanna Davison, comparing her negatively to the likes of fellow Irish models Nadia Forde and Roz Purcell, all the while slamming the industry in Ireland.
The Love Island star got in as many digs as possible when speaking about Rosie, mocking her make-up, saying she’d only get a role on reality TV if producers were desperate, and that she thinks she’s not nearly as “stunning” as other Irish beauties – catty!
Speaking to The Star, Rachel said, “Rosanna’s absolutely caked in the stuff [make-up]. I don’t know her personally and she seems like a sweet girl – but that’s all there seems to be with her.
“She seems very low energy. You’ve got to have both looks and personality.
“I recall reading a story where she expressed interest to go on Celebrity Big Brother – what would she contribute to the house? I think if the producers were desperate for someone to fill their ‘drippy glamour model quota’ last minute, I’m sure she’d get the call.”
Rachel went on to say, “I also think if you’re famous because your dad is famous, I question the validity of said modelling career. And how on earth did Chris let her do Playboy? I know I’ve done Loaded, but Playboy is a step too far – especially in a country where we’re still very conservative.”
She continued, “She’s pretty, but not stunning like Roz Purcell or Nadia Forde or Georgia Salpa where they have chiselled features and ooze sex appeal.”
The reality star also slammed the idea of the Irish modelling industry, saying she doesn’t believe standing in the rain in a bikini equals a modelling career.
Rachel said, “I think there’s a distinct difference between models in the UK and in Ireland.
“In Ireland, if you’re standing on Grafton Street in the pissing rain in a bikini, you’re suddenly a model and a household name.
“Standing in the middle of a road, with minimal clothing simply isn’t credible over here. In the UK, even if it’s on the lads’ mag circuit, you really have to prove your worth.”
Put the claws away, Rachel!
