She was hailed as a hero after outing the ridiculous requests from the mothers of daughter Ava’s classmates earlier this week, but now Myleene Klass is facing a backlash.
After exposing an email chain, asking for money towards birthday gifts for their children, the star was met with a rather frosty reception at the school gate on Friday.
Bet that was the most awkward school run of the year.
The 36-year-old was confronted by angry mums, with one reportedly shouting: “Why did you do it, Myleene? Why?”
The star is said to have shouted back: “If you’ve got a problem with it, talk to me in private.”
Thought it was the kids who were supposed to be having playground rows?!
After the very public derision, many mums at the £5k-a-term school have apparently emailed the headmistress to complain.
One mother, who asked not to be named, told MailOnline: “She has betrayed our confidences and belittled us so publicly. Lots of people have complained.
“It was a very distasteful and cheap shot.”
Another explained that Myleene has misinterpreted the intention of the donation, saying: “It is to make it easier for parents so they don’t buy expensive presents that nobody wants.
“There is no obligation. Myleene has misunderstood the school’s community spirit.”
Yikes – we wouldn’t like to be in Myleene’s shoes right about now.
The mother-of-two was left VERY unimpressed on Wednesday after receiving emails asking for money towards a Kindle and a desk.
Rather than simply ignoring the plea for £10 from everyone, Myleene posted the bizarre request to her MazSight, along with her rather hilarious response.
Clearly just as bemused as us at the brazen email, the former HearSay star explained:
“1/2 FYI I have changed the names etc, but this landed in my #inbox#bonkers.”
She then posted the email, which read: “Jane and Hannah would prefer a class birthday gift for their daughters this year.
“Sarah would like a Kindle and Lola a desk (very studious choices!!) so if you would like to join in, please can I collect a suggested £10 from you before the party on Feb 9th. Thanx and no obligation of course.”
Yeah, we were happy with a pack of furry stickers and a snapband when we were at school.
A follow-up email, presumably from one of the mothers, read: “From memory, £10 seems to be a popular amount, but feel free to give what you like or indeed, to give your own gift.”
Instead of just ignoring the whole, weird thing, Myleene carefully crafted a pretty amusing response.
In an email back to the group, she wrote: “Dear all, for Avas birthday she has requested a real, live unicorn. I will be Unicorn money via her book bag, in the playground or at www.yougetwhatyouregivenandendthismadness.com.
“Additionally I’d like Ferrari and Leonardo DiCaprio, so by all mean, do feel obligated to contribute to this too.”
Yeah, we’re not sure if Myleeene’s going to be invited to any PTA meetings for a while.
