Mum-of-11 Heather Frost wants attention "to stop" over Tewkesbury 'mansion'
MUM-OF-11 Heather Frost wants an end to the international attention around her and her family's new council 'mansion' in Tewkesbury.
She told the Echo she had "plenty to say" in response to her own father's stinging claims that she was "lazy".
But she said she would not air her thoughts publicly and added: "I just want it all to stop now, it's gone far enough."
On Friday, Royston Frost, 72, from Tewkesbury, said his daughter should have "got off her backside" and found employment.

It came after jobless Heather, 37, who has appeared on Daybreak and Jeremy Kyle , claimed she is not living a life of luxury and runs out of money every week.
Public outcry began earlier this month when it emerged that Heather and her children were moving from their Churchdown home – two houses knocked together – to a purpose-built six-bed eco home in Tewkesbury, funded by the taxpayer.
Further controversy followed when it emerged Heather's 16-year-old daughter Angel owns a pony.
It has also been reported that Heather hired a fairground carousel worth hundreds of pounds for one of her children in 2011.
Angel has vowed never to have her own children after seeing how much her mum struggles.
In an interview with the Daily Mirror, Heather said: "A mass murderer wouldn't get as much attention as I'm getting. One bloke said on Facebook he wanted to put all my kids in a house and gas them. It's just sickening."
She added: "I'm not prepared to say how much I receive (in benefits) – that's my business. But I run out of money every week. Luckily I've got a good mum who bails me out."
"I usually spend £250 a week on food. We have everything large – Iceland do family meals. My kids eat anything – bangers and mash, lasagne, spaghetti, and we always have a full Sunday roast.
"I go to Primark for the kids' clothes, but if people give me second-hand ones I will gladly take them. I'll take anything off anybody."
