A few times over the course of this blog I have written about Jade Goody. She was on the UK version of Big Brother a few years ago and became a huge star. Last year when she was invited back on the program she said some very racist remarks about and Indian contestant on the show which caused India and the UK to turn against her. In an attempt to mend fences she went on the India version of Big Brother where she learned on television that she had cancer. Now, she has only a few months to live and it is all being watched by every person in the UK.
Even the Prime Minister of the UK has been glued to events surrounding her life and said in a press conference Wednesday, “The whole country will be worried and anxious about her health.” Jade Goody is getting married this weekend. She is being paid $1M by OK! Magazine for the rights to the photos and has a huge reality show deal as well.
While some are saying that she should die with dignity at home, others say she should make as much as she can now for the sake of her children who will soon be without their mom.
I think that she should do what she wants and that if she can secure the future of her children by doing this, than I wish her the very best.
The New York Times has a great piece they ran today on the dram and I really encourage you to read it.
