Jade Goody : A celebrity career created and killed by Big Brother


Sorry to all those who couldn't give a damn about Big Brother. However, there is an important point to the whole Big Brother furore, especially for those who hate the show and the false stars it creates.

Jade Goody is probably the most successful and most recognised former Big Brother contestant, amassing a fortunes stretching in to several millions and having books, DVD's and TV shows out covering her life, fitness and all manner of other things "Jade". I never liked her. Whilst some people find ignorance endearing, I believe, maybe snobbishly, that people should have to earn success through some sort of skill. She has none that I can discern.

So it is a relief that if anything good is to come from the furore over the current racism issues in Celebrity Big Brother, it is that this may have burst Jade's bubble and that her career, if it really can be called that, is at an end.

She has come across as rude, ignorant, racist, self centred and incredibly thoughtless. Everyone I have spoken to thinks she's ruined the "gloss" that she had and she has been shown up for what she is.

So R.I.P. the career of Jade Goody, created and killed by Big Brother.

I was going to write a piece about how, hopefully, this would be the beginning of the end for the whole reality TV talent-free circus, but then I thought why bother wasting my time on such z-list pondlife?

I agree. I can't believe I watched it. It was extremely depressing to see such childish spitefulness.

Lets hope the fat pie eater has some disturbing news about her recent cancer tests waiting for her when she comes out hehe. In response to the original post, Jades sole skill is that of being Britains most successful scrounger

The reaction in three months time will say a lot about the character of the population. Will those now accused of racism recover and the nation forget or will the nation remain enthralled by the superficial and ignorant nonentities who count for icons and hero's.

bassmaster, I cannot agree on the cnacer comments, but I personally have always found Jade incredibly irritating.

Another thing that annoys me is the comment I often hear "She's not that thick, after all, she's amde a lot of money". As far as I can see she has mad the money because she IS thick, it is the one and only thing she does well !

Jade Goody displays lack of Education, culture & apart from being rude, ignorant, is Racist, Jade Goody has serious problems in upbringing , with dysfunctional family - her mother is a one-armed lesbian and her father was a drug addict , dysfunctional family - her mother is a one-armed lesbian and her father died of a heroin overdose . Her mother was a thief and a “clipper” — someone who pretends to arrange a prostitute for someone but runs off with the money instead.
She was kicked out of school . Today she dates with a 19-year-old boyfriend, with broken marriage. All this speaks about her Character, She is truly Sick and Sadist.

No amount of money can buy you class, but it can buy you a re-education. This whole thing with whether Jade is racist comes down to her having no ounce of commonsense. Girly bantering is one thing, bantering aimed at a person singled out is victimisation. This is where nasty jealousy turns into bullying that lea to sexism or in BB case racism. Unless you have been on the receiving side of this type of behaviour you will say its not racist, but between the slurs, the negativity the racist behaviour exist, maybe not intentional because whatever Jade, Jack, Danielle, Jo and her mum do in the confine of their own home is acceptable to them, to term the phase "no regard for anyone" would be fitting. Behaviour is something we learn and if there upbringing was poor, then its no wonder these people come on national TV and act out their inibitions and see nothing wrong with their actions. The issue with these people is that they fail to differentiate between bullying, jealously and racism, its easy to say your not a racist, but why mention it if you your're not one. The British public made Jade into a 8.5 millionaire, she represents hundreds of young women who were probably in a similar situation that she was in when she first went into BB all those years ago, since then she's acquired wealth and what does she do next throw it back in everyone's face, by kicking her own chair from underneath her. Money to her seems to be easy come by, easy it will go. Jade came in to the BB house expecting everyone to put her on a pedestal, but the competition was fierce and it was in the face of a Bollywood actress (who has the status of the old 50's hollywood actresses) and what does Jade and co do, they try to bring her down a peg or two. With all that money buy yourself the best education your money can buy. All I was waiting for was the "P" word to slip out, but the references to the poppodom, and indian and all those other remarks said it all. Put you mouth in gear before speaking, the shameless things that Jade and co are reasons for concern. More so Jade is concerned that her money is going to dwindle because she rather talk than listen. I feel sorry for her being so ignorant. We live in a multicultural society, and what people got away with in the 60's and 70's in a changing-England is no longer the case in modern UK.

Thank god the pound signs dragged her back inside for all to see how a now succesful and confident JG really is. Can't wait to see how those other 2 bike shed bullies try to talk their way out of this. All this talk of her now dead career puzzles me. What career? All she ever had was the public image she managed to sell to people who think being dumb is endearing. Hopefully those same people also hate bullies and will now leave her perfume, fitness DVDs and other bollox alone in favour of the next chav dream.

Hmmm ...

It appears everyone is agreed that Jade had a poor education, poor parents, poor life education, etc, but she did go on to make buckets of money.

Now some of you with a good education, good parents(?), good life education, etc, take great delight in giving her a good kicking when she's down.

Interesting.

whoever thinks jade goody isnt racist is racist... The comments they came out with on the show were about as racist as you get.. And if the girls think they werent being racist and that their comments were OK.. which they obviously did... I wouldnt like to hear the racist comments they reserve for private conversations or their Klu Klux Klan coffee mornings... After all Jade is thick as two short planks but even she knew she was talking to one huge audience... Probably thinking they were all laughing along with her....
