Sleaze Jack Tweed Convicted

Jade Goody’s new hubby Jack Tweed was convicted today of assaulting a 50 year old taxi driver.  Jack who is currently on probation for assaulting a 16 year old boy with a golf club will be sentenced later this month.  If this was any other normal defendant they would have been sent straight back inside to finish serving their term but as we all know stupid Jack Straw intervened and allowed Jack to not only be released early only but allowed him to have his tag removed for his wedding day.

Jack is a common thug who threatened to stab a taxi driver for asking for the fare to be paid in advance, which is totally normal when taking visibly drunk passengers, Jack also tried to lift the handbrake while the care was in motion. 

Jack Tweed is currently riding the ‘my wife is dying’ bandwagon and using this as an excuse to get away with his crimes, why Jade married this idiot is beyond me but hopefully Jack won’t keep getting away with what his doing and he will finally have to face up to his actions.

Max Clifford waded in after Jacks guilty verdict and said Jade will be very upset by this news… stating the obvious there Max.

Why It’s Hard To Be Sympathetic

Reality star Jade Goody is said to have only weeks to live and is currently gracing the front pages of British tabloids daily.  We are being smothered with stories of Jade’s heartache, strength, legacy, marriage, life, kids and so on which is fine but this bombardment is more annoying than tugging at my heart strings.

This weekend Jade was on the news as her neighbours are beginning to tire of the constant barrage of press outside their homes.  Jade was seen screaming “I’ll be dead in a month”.  These are the quotes we’ve been getting from Jade of late, “I’m ready for heaven”, “give me a pill or injection”, “kill me now”.  Why these quotes and why does she feel the need to spend every last second of her life in front of the press.

Many stars have had cancer or have it now and choose to spend what time they have with their loved ones, they concentrate on healing and trying to fight.  Think of Kylie, Anastasia or even poor Patrick Swayze now, these stars have and had their priorities straight.  Jade’s obsession with fame is sickening and somewhat pathetic.


Fading Star?

Last week Miss Goody became Mrs Jack Tweed after marrying her felon Essex yob boyfriend, 21.  Jack was in prison for assault but was granted an early release to spend time with his dying girlfriend.  Jack was given a curfew of 7pm and fitted with an ankle tag which was then taken off so he could spend his wedding night with his wife.  Jade is now pleading with parole officers and government officials to have his tag taken off permanently so he can spend time with his dying wife. 

I may be coming across completely heartless to you all right now but I can only think of what I would be doing in this situation.  The press seem to be painting Jack Tweed in an angelic light, this is a person who assaulted a boy with a golf club… classy and who had cheated on Jade numerous times, does this 21 year old really have Jade’s interests at heart?  Well now that they’re married he is entitled to 50% of everything if indeed she does die.

I’m finding it incredibly hard to feel sorry for Jade as it seems she is still making the same poor choices that she has been making her whole life.  If she does only have weeks to live maybe it’s not the best idea to have camera’s following you 24/7 or constantly giving interviews, maybe time with your boys out of the spotlight would be a good idea.  Until Jade realises what’s important and shows she has evolved as a person I will reserve my sympathies for those who deserve it.

Jade Goody Fame Whore

It really disturbs me that Jade Goody is squeezing as much publicity out of her cervical cancer diagnosis as possible.

Cancer victim?

Cancer victim?

I saw an interview with Jade on GMtv two weeks after she was diagnosed in the Big Brother India house saying how upset she was that people thought her cancer was a publicity stunt and that she would never do a show that followed her treatment.  She was adamant that she wanted to concentrate on her treatment  and her kids, yet that same week there was an advert on Living TV for Jade’s new show.

Since then there have been various shows and public displays from Jade, including her cutting her hair short as she was starting Chemo, with everything being documented by cameras and put in the public domain.  Other celebrity cancer victims have handled their diagnosis with class yet Jade seems to be using it as a publicity tool.

Is Jade’s cancer just a stunt to make the nation fall in love with her again after the Celebrity Big Brother racism row involving Shilpa Shetty?  Jade has also claimed that she is now unable to have any more children but I can’t help think that in a couple of years Jade’s miracle baby will be born…  Maybe I’m being too cynical?
