Lauren not jealous of Wright love
Lauren Goodger has insisted she doesn't feel jealous of her ex-fiance Mark Wright and his new love Michelle Keegan.
Former The Only Way Is Essex stars Lauren and Mark had been engaged, but split in 2011 after a stormy 10-year relationship and in 2012 he started dating Coronation Street star Michelle, getting engaged to her last September.
Lauren had tweeted: " God I bet it's sooo boring #yourlife #lookssoboring #nothingisperfect."
But she wrote in her New! magazine column that she was referring to tweets about a story that she had tried to avoid stepping into a puddle.
She said: "A lot of people thought it was a response to a recent interview my ex, Mark, did with a mag. Well, it wasn't at all. I was just so fed up with people tweeting me about the puddle story
"I heard Mark's fiancee Michelle tweeted a quote after I'd posted my tweet, saying, 'People only rain on your parade because they're jealous of your sun and tired of their shade.' I hope it wasn't aimed at me because I'm certainly not jealous.
"I've never met Michelle, but I'm sure she's lovely, and she's obviously completely gorgeous."
Lauren continued: "It's just a shame Mark feels the need to dismiss me in interviews. I don't have a problem with him and I'd say hello if I saw him.
"When he got with Michelle, I was asked about them a lot, but I never said anything bad about him or her. I also never made out I never loved him, because I did - and vice versa. That's what really aggravates me about him.
"He could just be open and say, 'I was with Lauren for a long time, I wish her all the best and I've moved on.' But he's said Michelle is his first proper relationship. Was what we had since we were 15 years old not real, then?"
She added: "I've been in love again since I was with him, but I'd never dismiss how I felt when I was younger as he was my first love, which you always remember. Anyway, c'est la vie..."
