'TOWIE' star Lauren Goodger claims she gets called an "attention seeker" after posting scantily-clad selfies despite other stars doing the same
Lauren Goodger claims she is branded an "attention seeker" for posting scantily-clad selfies.
The 33-year-old reality star has compared herself to Kim Kardashian after trolls criticised her for flashing her skin whilst the 39-year-old star receives praise for doing the same on social media.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: "Kim posts a topless selfie and she's a feminist. I post a bikini picture and get called an attention seeker. It's double standards. There is no need for it.
"And calling me a bad role model? I just laugh. I'm Kate Middleton's favourite 'TOWIE' star, so I must be doing something right."
Lauren has defiantly hit back at the "haters" and suggested they are jealous of her confidence and her figure.
She added: "I'm like a rock star, so I've got haters. These people aren't happy. I look at them and think, 'You must be so deeply unhappy in your life to be making so much of an effort to comment on mine'.
"Deep down, I know it's jealousy. I don't care what I say or do, I am who I am and that's it."
It comes after the former 'TOWIE' star received backlash for editing her snaps she shared on Instagram, claiming it sent the wrong messages to young girls.
However, she was quick to defend herself by insisting that the photo-sharing platform is "not real life".
She said: "Instagram is not real life. Editing pictures is something everyone does and there's no shame in it. I have tweaked pictures before but it's not a crime. I'm not a murderer. This is Instagram. Get a grip.
"People do photoshoots for magazines and pictures get edited but nothing gets said. That's why I also post a lot of videos, because you can't edit how your body looks in a video."
