Well her co-celebrities on CBB also recieved death threats at the height of their careers. Dirk Benedict discussed it in this clip on the reality show. He also said that he would wish his friends and family to be rich and famous but not to be celebrities. And Jermaine Jackson whose brother Michael has been ruined by celebrity (plastic surgery, reclusive lifestyle) readily agreed.

She was the least overtly racist of the three, but was very much an unpleasant stupid bully.

I don't agree with carrying on with a lynch mob against them, but neither am I overwhelmed with sympathy for them.

I don't feel sorry for her whatsoever. On GMTV she said she still didn't see what she did wrong. She said she didn't BULLY Shilpa and in the newspaper, she said she wouldn't do anything different.

It's one thing not knowing you are being racist (an argument can be made for and against being racist) but to say you weren't bullying Shilpa is the biggest piss take.

She deserves everything she gets!!!

I do feel sorry for her.. BUT the bits i saw from Big Brother her behavoir was plain WRONG........

HOWEVER.... People need to remember the Big Brother show only shows 50 odd EDITED minutes of what happened in that house over 24 HOURS!

My problem with BIG BROTHER has always been the same, the editors, the producers and the makers of BIG BROTHER show WHAT THEY WANT! and they decide who WINS really.. Ok its a public vote but what they show is vital. Now i'm not defending Jade, Danielle or Jo as there actions where wrong but i feel people shouldn't base everything on the "bits" Chanel 4 showed...

Shilpa herself has said things were overblown.

I've got no sympathy for any of them. No one forced them to go on reality TV and be racist. It's no one else's fault that the three girls concerned are too bog ignorant to be anything better. They got exactly what they deserved and I think its safe to say that the media are way overhyping the seriousness of the "death threats" :rolleyes:

I can't believe the stupidity of these people and it also horrifies me that the British media is so captivated by the whole stupid and sordid affair. No wonder totally vacuous people with absolutely no merit or intelligence whatsoever can become successful in the world today.

In S Club 7, she worked with Tina and Bradley, who were both black. If Jo is racist, both of them are the most likely to know. I wonder what their take on this whole issue is. I haven't heard or seen any clips about Jo's part in the incident but from some reports, it's been blown way out of proportion. There's no way S Club 7 would've worked out if Jo had racist feelings against Tina and Bradley. Although there was one interview I read in a magazine that asked Tina who in the band she feels she knows the least. Her answer was Jo, because they weren't as close as she (Tina) was to the other girls. But that could be because of anything.

It is possible to not be racist against one race and be against another. She might have no problem with black people but with indians/pakistanies. Her excuess that her cousin married and indian so she can't be racist was just:tape: :help:

A few of my uni housemates, as much i as i like them, have no problems with black people but seem to have a grudge against asians, Some of the comments they make i find disturbing BUT i have argued with them over and over and they wont change nither will i sao i just choose to ignore it now.

By the way that girl Jade is quite a phony. She said that she won't make any money out of this and will give ALL of the 100'000 pounds that she recieved from the show to charity. It is obvious that her manager told her to say that. Nobody would be insane to give away 100'000 pounds unless they are super rich and I am willing to bet my right hand that she will keep all of the money. She also said that she would seek counseling help because she needed it yet checked out 3 days later.

Jo on the other hand truly seems to suffer and she was not as bad as Jade. Danielle is not acting as a phony like Jade. Ms. Goody seemed to think that Shilpa was a stuck up actress who had lots of money and seemed to try to get the audience on her side, i.e 'you are a normal housemate like all of us'. She seemed to forget that she too is a millionaire. Sure Shilpa was making much ado about nothing with regards to the food but Jade just lost it there.

It was obvious watching the show that Jo would crack up once she left, she seemed quite fragile anyway, the other girls are either A. too strong, B. too stupid, C. both, to let it get to them, I know Jade is in rehab, and Danielle has left the country :tape: but Jo seems like she's in a real state, I hope this does all blow over soon, cos even the lovely Shilpa is fed up talking about it :lol:

I didn't watch "CBB" during the bullying scenes. (That would have really upset me) I didn't really watch "CBB" during the time that Jade and her mum were in the show. (I am not repeat NOT a Jade Goody fan I'm afraid... ;) )

From what I saw of Jo (and I hope I don't sound like I'm excusing her bad behaviour) she seemed rather unhappy and anxious. I know she claims she was a victim of the editing, but from what I saw of her (okay, not as much as I could have seen) she was in her dressing gown, smoking and complaining...

I'm not sure that Jo was strong enough to be in that "BB" environment. I think you have to be at the top mentally to do that show - the producers will do what they can to create tension, etc, and to be filmed constantly like that with no privacy, nothing to do... I know that I could not do it. (No way!) (Again, I'm not excusing the bullying - I really hope I don't sound like I'm excusing the bullying)

I hope that Jo will learn from this and that life will start to pick up for her. :)

(Shilpa was amazing - so beautiful and dignified... I want to be like her! And Dirk Benedict! He was so handsome... *swoon* ;) )

Feb 4th, 2007, 07:12 PM

I don't get why people are sympathetic towards her. They should feel sorry for the other 2, not Jo.

Jo was a bitch, who was manipulative, miserable and would make the happiest person fed up. She has absolutely no good quality about her whatsoever. She was the talented one out of S Club, and yet her lack of ambition and negativity meant she had to do BB.

We shouldn't feel sorry for her. She had her chance, she fucked it up big time. She won't get another chance.

I feel sorry for Jo - I believe 100% she isnt racist and I can see why she doesnt consider it bullying because imo she was as hurtful and enjoying it in the same way as Jade and Danielle who loved it. I think she was laughing at the arguement not laughing at Shilpa. This doesnt mean I consider it not to be bullying but I can see why she doesnt.

And editing does change alot - I did a little TV show and saw the final version and saw little quotes taken out and not used in context so I can see where she comes from. I hope Jo can find a way to come through this becuase she is a talented girl.

Jade is by far the wost of the lot. Jo seems to be fine compared with her. Jade was probably angry at Shilpa because she thought hat she was acting as a diva. Yet the article below shows that she was doing the samething at rehab. She probably went there because her management advised to do it since it could help built up her tarnished image.


CELEBRITY Big Brother bruiser Jade Goody quit rehab because she was too angry for her anger management classes.

The loud-mouthed race-row star, 25, horrified other patients as she shattered the peace at the swish £800-a-night Priory clinic.

And we can reveal that during her five-day stint she argued with staff as soon as she arrived and avoided taking part in group therapy sessions.

She even had to be calmed down by doctors minutes after arriving at the private hospital in leafy Roehampton, south London.

A source said: “Jade hasn’t learned anything from her anger management programme. She is as rude as ever.”

Trained psychologist Mignon Sharie, 31, last night told how a close pal of hers, who wishes to remain anonymous, was at the hospital at the same time as the BB3 star.

Mignon, from Kent, said: “My friend was being treated at the hospital for clinical depression. Needless to say, the last thing he wanted was Jade Goody turning up.

“From the first day Jade was being antagonistic and attention-seeking. She was effing and blinding all the time.

“On her first day she had a massive tantrum in a hallway, just after she arrived.

“She was given her own en-suite room with a TV, like all the patients, but she wasn’t happy.

“He heard staff say to her: ‘You cannot behave like this. We have people here who are genuinely depressed and need peace and quiet’. But she wasn’t listening. She didn’t care.

“She just wouldn’t stop swearing and staff had to usher her to her room.

“During the altercation she pushed one member of the staff. Throughout her stay Jade behaved like a real celebrity diva.

“The patients there are meant to be treated equally and had got to know each other and become quite friendly, but Jade wanted nothing to do with the other patients.”

Mum-of-two Jade was told that she might as well leave the clinic if she wasn’t going to behave herself.

She cut short a planned eight-week stay but will go back as a day patient.

She is on anti-depressants as she tries to get back into the public’s good books after her blazing row with Bollywood babe Shilpa Shetty, 31.

Housemate Jermaine Jackson, 52, yesterday denied reports that he had described Jade and her mum as “white trash”.

He said he had just been repeating to Shilpa comments made by A-Team actor Dirk Benedict, 61.

No sympathy whatsoever. A small victory perhaps but I hope the not particularly bright Jo and her buddies have learned their lesson.
- all because they were faced with a woman (Shilpa) who was brighter than them, more intelligent than them, more beautiful than them and CONFIDENT.

She is bright but she does not speak 10 languages as she claims. She knows a few phrases here and there in some of these languages but she should stop saying she knows 10 languages. It is closer to 4 or 5. Tulu, English, Hindi and the state language of the area she was in. The rest is just bogus. I also fail to understand how she is the Angelina Jolie of Indian movies. She probably meant to say that she is A star status. She acts in A star movies but she has secondary roles. She is is not A star like Rani Mukherjee.

Jade, Danielle and Jo are sadly pretty good representations of your typical British young girl. I'm sorry to say, that there are just like most of the white females at my university.

a mate of mine got racially abused and almost attacked by a group of white young males the othe rweek in flares and that was dam scary!

I do tend to think of Jo as a celebrity. After all she was the lead singer (she did all the singing, didnít she?) with a well known pop group. But Jade and Daniela, then again everyoneís a celebrity

I mean working class like myself. I still canít get by the class barriers, what are you Abby, working class, Middle class or Posh?

I was a skinhead myself in my younger days. I used to attack lots of people. Especially if they wore flairs

I've actually been suprised at the lack of racial abuse my friends at uni who aren't white have had. I was expecting to have to stick up for them but i haven't had to.

It could be that most people i come into contact with are students who are in most casees educated people who know how to behave.

No itís just they do it in a sly way. Theyíre all nice to peoples faces then talk about them behind their backs

Anyway most students are spongers. They moan and bitch about university and how costly it is. What do they spend most of their grant on? Alcohol and drugs

LOL yeah thats me.

I'm probably in the minority in uni and i'm not too bothered about tuition fees, if thats what it takes for me to get my degree then so be it. but then again my parents pay my tuition fees and my rent so its never been a problem for me.

I do have a few friends in uni who have had to work a lot of hours on top of their work in order to pay for uni and that seems to tough, i've been quite lucky really.


On the subject of class i wouldn't know where to class myself, my grandparents were proper working class, one grandad worked in a vaxhaul factory the other a shoe factory. Both my parentd were/are treachers, my dad a head of department and my mum is now and advisory teacher but they also run a pub. So what class does that come to?

And on the race thins, yeah snide commetns actually, i have 2 good friends in uni who i just can't argue with anymore about race issues cos we completley disagree and i can't be bothered telling them not to use certain language cos i'm sick and tired of having to do it so i just stay quiet.

I would loved to have had the opportunity to go to university but my personal lifestyle dictated otherwise. Iím quite envious of you, well not so much envious, more wishing IĎd been dealt a better hand.(Not that Iím unhappy generally with my life. We all have our ups and downs and have to get on with it. Although where I live had a significant bearing on my life) I rarely attended school. The last year of my comprehensive education was spent painting mobile classrooms

I know i've been very lucky going to uni but also that i haven't had to get money myself to do it. My parents run a pub and most of the people my age who go there haven't had the chance to go to uni or anything like that and i think they are envious of me at uni untill they hear how many essays and exams i have and think 'Yeah i sucked at them at school'

Its not just about the education its the life that comes with it and what you learn about yourself and others by moving away from friends and family. You change so much at uni, i suppose you can learn the same by getting a job far away from home.

What did Jo say that was racist? I must confess that I wasn't watching.

From all I've seen, she laughed when Shilpa was about to speak, and said something about the chicken being fingered. I'm probably slightly muddled on that. But that's not racist.

If all that she did was bully, then of course she should be condemned. But hang on a second, that's been going on in the BB house ever since its inception? And what's more, if we live in a country where there is freedom of speech, then surely that freedom extends to the right to be unkind to people, to be duplicitous, to 'bitch'. Of course it does, otherwise we'd all be banged up for some past transgression. I say that as somebody who has experienced more bullying than most.

I think it's just a witch hunt, this whole thing. It reflects the fact that people -- black and white -- see in Jo traits that they see in themselves, and in order to distance themselves from it, they scapegoat Jo, or Jade. Danielle was the one I particularly disliked, but even she didn't deserve to have her life ruined.

You know, the irony of all this is one of the first questions Shilpa was asked after she left BB was whether she would marry a white man. No, not would she marry somebody outside of her culture, but would she marry somebody of a different race.

Last night I was watching American Idol (I must have been bored) and Simon Cowell had just laughed at a contestant who was rubbish. She walked out and her family screamed abuse, saying Cowell should go back to France or wherever he came from, and he had no right to be in America nor judge American contestants. They were African Americans.

Now far be it from me to suggest they were racist; I think they were ignorant, rather. But those comments were effectively no different from those made by the 3 girls in the BB house. So many double standards...

The whole shows an orchestrated farce like this board. From the outset the makers had one winner in mind ĎJermaine Jacksoní. They wanted a black Muslim to win. Then came the whole furore with Larry, Curly and Moe, this made the show take another direction and then the plan was set in motion for Shilpa to be victorious. Even the Ďphone-iní was a set-up. They claimed there was something wrong with the telephone lines and the whole of the voting had to be scrapped.

People seem to have forgotten some things Shilpa said and done. She mocked Joís accent when Jo asked a question about a whale. Joís heavy Essex accent was difficult for her to make out but instead of asking Jo to clarify what she meant Shilpa asked other housemates, when she found out what Jo had actually said she laughed her arse off. Later that day she was still going on about it to Jermaine and mocking Joís pronunciation of the word.

Also, when asked by Cleo would she entertain the thought of dating Dirk her reply was ĎHeís not my kindí. Nothing to do with his age but the fact he was Caucasian.

The very people up in arms over the whole affair are the very same people who spend their lives telling Irish jokes (most of which are funny). And these people have taken part in bullying on this board too. There have been times when new posters have joined and I donít mean the likes of myself. I mean really genuine people who thought the place looked like fun. Only to post the wrong thing and be set upon by fanatical fan bases and little cliques....

The accent thing was not racist, at least not in my eyes. But it was the 'fuck off home' that was and the mimicking the accent added to this comment and other comments makes it look bad for Shilpa. There was definetely bullying and no one can argue against that. Also I know that we Indians do not like to when people say that we eat with the hands. We eat only with the right hand in India and also in Pakistan, arab nations. It all sounds trivial but we all have to respect each others customs. Also I doubt that Shilpa said that she would not go out with Dirk becasue he is white. She said it was because he was too old. She said if he ws 35 years younger and ate chicken then she could see herself with him.

She said if he ws 35 years younger and ate chicken then she could see herself with him.

I never suggested Shilpa was racist. I saw Shilpa as an obviously attractive woman, from a wealthy background, who had been schooled from childhood in etiquette, manners and for educational success. She was acutely aware of how to conduct herself. As far as I could see, and I only watched sporadically, she seemed a magnaminous, likeable person, although of course, filmed 24/7 by cameras, it behoved her to behave in such a way, just as the more obtuse Jade should have realised.

But it was a journalist who asked her that question: "Would you marry a white man?". I'm not sure whether it was an Indian journalist or British, but I was merely commenting on the irony that such an overtly racially loaded question could escape people's notice while Jade was being pilloried for calling somebody a pappadom.

As for Indians being touchy about people commenting on their food and their customs, as a British person I can tell you that more people, certainly around Europe, lambast the food of Britain than of any other nation. They also stereotype the British as being fat because we eat too much junk. I know this having met many continental Europeans, having even lived with some.

Now that doesn't bother me. Whether it's true or not, people are entitled to their opinions.

What Jo said about Indians being skinny because of how they cook their chicken, implying food poisoning, was not something I would have said. But is it really that terrible a remark to make?

Will she go down in the annals of time with the likes of Hitler?

Oh the whole thing wreaks of hypocrisy and posturing for political gain.

The greatest irony is that it is The Sun, that most despicable, noxious, biggoted tabloid, which spews distorted facts about immigrants, with racist slogans, harrasses homosexuals and the mentally ill, uses jingoistic anti-German rhetoric and objectifies women on page 3, which has championed the anti-racist cause by demonising Jade, Jo and Danielle.

Not one of our politicians has touched upon this discrepancy because firstly, they need the support of Rupert Murdoch, and secondly because they are afraid of being seen to be defending racism as it has been constructed by The Sun itself.

Well last night I sat through the whole show again....I tape it from start to finish just incase I miss anything first time around...anyhoo, Shilpa did say 'He's not my kind' as in being Indian. Now Im fine with that...dont bother me a jot. As for eating with your hands I see nothing wrong in this. ting 'Fish & Chips' with a knife and fork just isn't right....
