This is another joke. Jade Goody is empty headed and repugnant, as others have observed. I guess this is some divine power making up for the fact she was born without any endearing attributes (i.e personality, looks, nice body, intelligence etc). This can only encouarge those in a similar boat to desperately claw at fame as she has done.

So Jade churns out her first of two novels, justified upon the premise of 'starring' on a reality show. She seems to have been 'taken to the nations heart'. I am at a loss to understand why, as nothing can possibly earn derision more than a Z-lister trying desperately to stay in the public eye and therefore inflate her bank balance.

I do not expect her to understand the damage she is doing to the book industry, as I do not expect her to have knowledge of the existence of books.

What a great read! My only previous recollection of Jade was her appearance on Big Brother and the media slating she recieved for what appeared to be simple alcohol-driven naivity. However, having seen her face staring out from a hundred and one magazine covers, I have to confess to knowing little or nothing about what fuelled the general public's fascination for every detail of this Bermondsey girl's public and private life. In this book, Neil Simpson explains not only her troubled background, but how she has won over her critics through a combination of sheer determination, hard work and an underlying honest and caring personality. By the end of the book I felt as though I know her like a best friend. There's even a series of tips for Jade wannabes to follow to emulate her success (and who knows, maybe her millions too!). A real feelgood book both for her fans and those who don't know the real Miss Goody and are mystified by her appeal.

When Jade Goody erupted onto our screens, like a rancid chicken madras being disgorged onto a Dagenham pavement, there were two things that everybody agreed on. That she wasn't very clever, and that she looked like a pig. With her chirpy, loveable, moronic, annoying, gittish personality and her habit of taking her clothes off when drunk, she endeared herself to the many millions who find not very clever women who look like pigs endearing. Now as a professional not very clever woman who looks like a pig, she gives hope and sustenance to the stupid and ugly of this world. This is her story. Read it, or ask someone to read it to you. Oink.
