    There's always 2 sides to a story. I feel bad for judging her for her laziness etc..
    Surprised she received racial abuse from her housemates wow...

    No problem.
    Hey man, for some reason I can't watch it, because of DRM restrictions. Do you have any clue how to disable this? It looks like there are a lot of tools if you're on a Mac but I'm on Windows

    Ah I'm on a Mac so it must have bypassed on my computer but not on Windows. Sorry, bare with me and I'll reupload it without DRM and on a different site.

    Thank you for posting this. I know that reality shows skew things to how they want people to look, but I didn't realise that it would be this severe.

    For her to have been through everything that she says she went through and to have finished uni as well, I admire her greatly.

    I'm sure Channel 4 did warp things slightly for entertainment purposes as she implies, but all she does in this blog is moan and make excuses to justify her bad attitude. The insomnia claim is rubbish - that was never mentioned by her in the documentary; and when she was asked by her tutors why she didn't turn up for 9am lectures she just shrugged and said she didn't really have a reason. Even if she did have any element of insomnia, it'll be because she spent all night on her phone texting Troy and tweeting garbage.

    I see where you're coming from about the insomnia thing, if she'd mentioned this to her tutors then surely they would have provided her with support or referred her to somewhere that could help.

    However, you have to admit that the documentary does portray her in an extremely negative light, I understand why she's angry, especially when they've decided to omit certain important details e.g depression. They've only told part of the story. I guess I'm trying to say that everyone has bad days, and it seems that the producers have focused entirely on these all in the name of entertainment. So yeah, I have sympathy for her. Who knows, maybe the reason she had such a 'bad attitude' was because of her miscarriage etc.

    Anyway, I just wanted to share her side of the story. Sorry for the long post I got a bit carried away

    She said " CHANNEL 4 DIDNT TELL YOU THAT I FACED RACIST ABUSE FROM MY FLATMATES DID THEY"

    That's pretty shocking

    I felt really bad for her. Channel 4 really need sort some things out, really put everything out of perspective for all the students. It doesn't portray anything, it's just entertainment

    Is there any proof that this "abuse" actually happened? Granted it would be a very serious allegation, but they all seemed to get along okay.



    And the miscarriage thing seems suspect at best
