Vinnie Challenges Alex Over Cross-Dressing Persona
Vinnie has challenged Alex about all the stuff in the tabloid
newspapers saying that he likes to cross-dress, and suggested
that he hasn't been defending his own image properly.
Discussing all the press coverage that the cage fighter has
received since shacking-up with never-out-of-the-papers model
Katie Price, Vin basically accused his younger peer of attempting
to grab headlines by making himself sound more interesting.
"Are you worried that if you don't say you're a cross-dresser
and all that, you won't be front page?" asked Vinnie,
but in response Alex claimed that he doesn't want
to be on the front page of the tabloid newspapers.
"Well stop saying it, dude," snapped Vinnie, which
prompted Alex to admit that he'd like to get on the front
page for doing something great, but not for being a cross-dresser.
During a previous Vinnie grilling, the 34-year-old stated
that he only did it for a laugh and not because he enjoys
it, and claimed that the Press somehow got hold of the story.
Um, we wonder which publicity-hungry glamour girl was responsible
for that? Ahem.
Back to today's conversation, and Vinnie continued to challenge
the musclebound Hampshire lad, saying: "What I'm saying
is, you're not really defending it, you know what I mean?
We've all cross-dressed because we've been to fancy dress
do's, but we don't all come out and say we're cross-dressers".
When it was suggested by Alex that he hadn't been responsible
for perpetuating the cross-dressing stories himself, Vinnie
advised him to stand his ground. In other words, 'Don't let
girlfriend Jordan say things to the press that you don't want
This helps to prove that, despite all the joshing and banter,
Vinnie possibly has a little bit of respect for Alex, someone
who clearly looks up to him (remember, Vinnie didn't nominate
Alex at the First Round on Sunday, and vice versa).
A minority of fans have seen it a different way and accused
Vinnie of bullying Alex; others have pointed-out that Alex
is well used to the vicious rough-and-tumble of fighting burly
blokes, so he's quite capable of standing up to Vinnie if
he wants to.
We're in the latter camp.
