Something Goody from Big Brother

Well if there is one thing to come out of the racial discrimination incident(s) of Celebrity Big Brother is that after Jade Goody's outburst to Shilpa Shetty is that there is unlikely to be any more Jade in the papers and mags.

I mean when even Channel 4 describe her as a reality TV star, Jade hasn't much going for her. No, that's not true. She had this huge likable factor. Well that's shattered.

She's cost Channel 4 and Endemol their sponsorship contract with Carphon Warehouse. She's also had her perfume pulled from at least one store chain. With probably more to follow. And her attempt at backtracking is worse.

All this time Shilpa Shetty is living up to her quote... "I have zero expectations. The only thing I really hope to keep is my self-respect and my dignity."

And despite over 20,000 complaints to Ofcom (UK) and questions asked in the UK and Indian governments the ratings are going through the roof.

And all this from a guy without a telly or really caring about the show (I still hope Starbuck senior wins).

take care,
Will
