Sophie Monk's disclosure that she gave actor/comedian Russell Brand the phone number of a girlfriend rath her own after he asked for it has some entertainment fans on social media divided in their opinion of her.
Some of her fans smiled and laughed at her act of misdirection that resulted in Russell Brand eventually talking her girlfriend out and dating her for two years. Many woman can relate to giving out a fake number to a man they don't want to date, especially during their younger years when they were not 'practiced' at the art of saying no.
However, some entertainment fans consider the deceptive act of Kyle Sandilands' temporary replacement on KISS 106.5 FM to be not cute but a cowardly act that makes some wonder if she had the toughness to play a strong, dramatic character on the small or big screen.
Actors need to be convincing pretenders and have some strength within them to play tough, gritty, dramatic roles. It seems that in the past the beautiful Sophie Monk was a very good 'pretender' in feigning interest in a man but lacked the intestinal fortitude to tell an individual they are not interested in them which some filmmakers might have noticed in auditions and could explain her lack of success in Hollywood.
For a high school aged girl deception might be deemed acceptable but for an entertainment personality whose fan base consists of both men and women, her disclosure has not enhanced her appeal to some of her male admirers on social media.
Some entertainment personalities when a microphone is put in front of them often forget to use any sort of discretion or filter with regard to the disclosure of information about themselves and this hurts their popularity and an example of this is Sophie Monk.
Sophie Monk, an entertainment personality who needs to think before she speaks about what fan base helped propel her to fame before divulges information that makes her less desirable to this group.
