Noirin's 'Housewife' Comment Causes Controversy
Pretty Big Brother 10 contestant Noirin Kelly has caused
controversy and riled female viewers by belittling housewives.
Chatting to Marcus at the kitchen sink on Thursday evening,
the 25-year-old retailer claimed that she's a maternal person,
saying, "I love everything about being a housewife,"
however, she quickly added, "...but I don't want to be
just a housewife".
As-if that wasn't bad enough, Noirin then stated: "I've
got a lot more to give than that".
Her comments – aired during Friday night's eviction
show – have outraged housewives and parents around the
country, who felt Noirin was belittling the work they do,
and also that she had failed to appreciate how hard it can
be to run a household full-time.
Comment soon appeared on internet forums and social networking
websites, with one detractor saying: "I was absolutely
horrified by Noirin's immature attitude, effectively suggesting
that people who choose to stay at home/ bring up children
are somehow in a lower league to the rest of society".
"I'm disgusted. I was a successful career woman who
chose to put my career on hold and stay at home while my children
were young; Noirin’s comments show total ignorance,"
In response to her comments, fans have called for Noirin
to be given a solo task that would see her responsible for
cooking, cleaning, tidying-up, sewing/ repairing, helping
her peers with homework, tending to fake nightmares in the
middle of the night and sorting-out petty squabbles at random
"That might give her a taste of 'just' how difficult
being a housewife can be," said one fan.
