Carol McGiffin hits out at Coleen Rooney blaming her for marriage troubles

She's had her say

She’s been having quite a week of it and after lashing out at Loose Women for leaving her out of their 18th birthday celebrations, Carol McGiffin has now made her feelings clear on the Rooney marriage crisis.

Pregnant Coleen Rooney has had a tough time following husband Wayne’s arrest for drink-driving.

To make matters worse, he was caught at the wheel of another woman’s car, with the woman in question beside him.

Various rumours have since hounded Coleen, and Laura Simpson, the girl Wayne was with, has revealed to the MailOnline that things would have gone further between her and Wayne had the police not pulled them over.

But Carol says she has no sympathy for Coleen.

Writing in her column for Best magazine, she said: “Poor wife Coleen, pregnant with his fourth child, had to supposedly rush back from her holiday to sort the mess out.

“And I suppose I should feel sorry for her – but I’m afraid I don’t.

“Largely because she is the reason it keeps happening. If you behave like a doormat, you’ll get treated like one.”

“Wayne being a disrespectful [bleep] isn’t the problem here,” Carol continued. “It’s Mrs Rooney’s serial forgiveness.

“He is obviously a child who, unless he’s punished properly for bad behaviour, will keep repeating it.

“She’s should know this, she’s a mother of three much smaller children.”

She went on to say that Coleen should have “red-carded” her husband for her own dignity if nothing else – “She should care deeply about the worldwide ritual humiliation he puts her family through.”

Carol does admit she “might be wrong” as there’s been no confirmation that Coleen has forgiven Wayne yet. But then she adds: “Given the history, it’ll only be a matter of time before she does.”

She’s not one to mince her words our Carol, is she?

Last week she hit out at her former show Loose Women for not including her in their 18th birthday celebrations.

Carol was a regular host on the show between 2003 and 2013, but apart from one picture in a slideshow, she was completely ignored from the birthday and wasn’t invited on the show, according to the lady herself.

She replied to a follower who asked her if she had been invited to make an appearance.

She sarcastically said: “Don’t be daft Aaron, I only did 13 years and over 1,000 shows, why would I even be asked???!!!”

But that wasn’t it as fans started to tweet her about her absence from the celebrations, Carol tweeted back to a fair few people to show her outrage.

One person tweeted her saying: “Did notice a distinct lack of you in any of the archived footage,” to which Carol replied: “You’re not the only one who noticed… it’s not like they didn’t have a lot of material to choose from! #1,174shows.”

Carol took an even bigger swipe at the show, as one fan tweeted: “What did you do to upset them?” She replied: “Dunno. Maybe it’s because We (the old gang) left and the show stopped winning awards? Who knows?” Ouch!

And if you thought that was bad enough, she even replied to a tweet from the Loose Women official Twitter account!

Loose Women tweeted yesterday: “Soooooo many incredible women on the show over the past 18 years. Don’t miss the show tomorrow to celebrate! 12.30pm on @ITV #LooseWomen18.”

Carol replied directly to the tweet, with a sarcastic comment. She said: “Yeah, don’t miss the show because sooooo many of those ‘incredible’ women won’t be on it!”

But many people tweeted Carol calling her “bitter” for her comments.

One person tweeted: “God you’re bitter. Get over it and move on, it’s a celebration so be happy or be quiet,” while another said: “Someone sounds bitter!!”

“Bitter they didn’t ask you,” said a third, while another tweeted: “Wouldn’t have thought you were the bitter type Carol. C’mon you’re better than that.”

To address the rumours that she was angry and bitter, Carol tweeted to her followers: “Not furious, not surprised, just a teeny bit sad.” Aw!
