    My 44 year old Aunty has just found out she has cancer on Saturday, the whole world doesn't feel sorry for us, and my Aunty is a MUCH better person then she is. She has an 8 year old son. she is going through chemo but it is looking like she will survive seeing as though they caught it early. Just because she is a celebrity, why does that make her better then everyone else??

    I do feel sorry for Jade, but it annoys me why she is singled out :x

    What do you actually gain from watching a person slowly die? There's always a 'forbidden pleasure' in voyeurism, but is that simply what it is in this case?

    Are you annoyed because she's getting attention, or because your aunt isn't?

    Either way, does your aunt need an audience of strangers at this point in time?

    I feel sorry for her because i know about her, now youve told me about your Aunt i feel sorry for her too. I feel for anyone in the same situation!

    Why cant this just be an information thread instead of a slanging match?!

    Because people want to spend money watching her die. They'll buy the newspapers, the magazines etc.

    She is getting money because the papers/news etc have offered it to her! Why should she say no? They treated her like dirt over the last few years so she is getting something back from them.

    Im sorry but im getting really annoyed with these threads, My granda when through the exact same that she is but the world didn't stop for him. No-one stopped the press to put it him the front page.

    I was just requesting information on why people want to have daily updates on a story that has only one outcome.

    Of course, it's naive to think that her death will be the end of it.

    Her mother has to sell her story, so does her husband and anyone else who wants to cash in.

    The whole story is just the latest permutation in the story of a person who is no more than a freak show. It's sad and just shows how bored people are.

    Thats a bizarre post,you know a lot about her survival rate etc already,she was only diagnosed on Saturday.

    Aside from that,how can you say your auntie is a MUCH better person than Jade,i don't think its something one can comment on,particulary when you obviously don't know Jade personally.

    She actually became a millionaire out of the press but that's besides the point.

    The newspapers are, at least partially, responding to a demand from certain members of the public who want to have their daily dose of this morbid story.

    It's not news so much as entertainment - a continuation of Big Brother. Personally, I'd rather re-watch The Sopranos.

    Her children are set up for life. Maybe she should now give some to cancer research.

    I don't really get your point borolad,cancer is something nobody wants anybody to go through,regardless of who they are.

    if it was a good celebrity then i would understand the publicity. but she was a bad person and her husband too. even on her deathbed she still wants money. i dont know how a person can be famous out of being dumb.
    Wendy Richard gets much more respect from me from the way she delt with her process and for being a better person

    loobie;4549858

    Why should she say no?



    Decency, humility and decorum.

    For me, it doesn't matter if she was 'good' or 'bad'. Characterising her as 'evil racist' was just like sticking a new outfit on a Barbie doll. It was just another way to sell newspapers.

    That's all been forgotten now, because it makes a better story to have a sad story about an inevitable death.

    The newspapers just manipulate people to sell newspapers, and there is an (unfortunately) buoyant market for it.

    How can you say she's a bad person lol.....don't use the racism card, i personally think it was all blown out of proportion, so whats your other evidence of her being a bad person?

    i would never want that. it would be only shame and embarrasment.
    if i was to be a celebrity, then i would want to be one for doing something good, not for getting my baps out on big brother

    She deserves all the money she can get. I say this because i cannot imagine what she is going threw. She has children and she knows she will never be able to see them grow up. It is awful, so she wants to make sure her children will be sorted for when she is gone. I suppose it is her way to show them she loves them when they are older. Jade is a human being and is not perfect and in regards to the racism excuse as why she should suffer is disgraceful whoever said it. NO-ONE deserves cancer ever.

    But you've got to surely question where that money comes from, and why?

    She's only feeding a demand. The newspapers want to make money out of this story (credit crunches and foreign news don't sell papers), and why people want to get extensive coverage.

    She's lived the last 5 years or so of her life in the spotlight - she probably doesn't know any other way.

    It's like when Britney dated the pap - a perverse form of Stockholm Syndrome. You come to rely on those who seek to exploit you.

    If people didn't want to know, then the newspapers wouldn't stick her on the front page.

    The people who buy these 'newspapers' and periodicals are at least as much to blame, probably more.

    I agree with this.

    She is already a millionaire - her kids are safe, and financially secure. I really can't comprehend the many on here that suggest she should profit from this illness for whatever reason.

    If she had any self-respect, she should perhaps reach out to others in this way and benefit future sufferers of this horrible disease.

    It's for her kids, she brought them into the world and unfortunately looks as if she'll leave them behind.

    "Fortunate" that she can leave them something other than memories.
