Copied from DM

Sandals Resorts are surprised by the allegations made by Ms Price. Without an international profile, the resort team were oblivious of Ms Price’s fame and welcomed her with the award-winning service given to all its guests.
Once at the resort Ms Price did identify herself to her dedicated Wedding Manager and explained her profile in the UK.
The team were thoroughly understanding and accommodating of Ms Price’s request for privacy, offering use of the resort’s private offshore island, Sandals Cay, for her wedding ceremony and the duration of her stay.
However, Ms Price declined this offer, and against the Sandals team’s advice opted instead to hold the ceremony on the public beach where she was photographed by paparazzi.
As with all Butler Suite guests, Ms Price was assigned a dedicated butler who are all trained by the “Guild of Professional English Butlers”. 
Part of this service includes serving gourmet meals from a choice of ten on property restaurants in suite at no additional cost. The resort also offers private candle lit dining in a variety of discreet locations for all its guests.
Her dedicated butler, who is used to dealing with VIP’s denies making any derogatory remarks.
Sandals Resorts is disappointed  that Ms Price was not happy with her stay and as a gesture of goodwill are willing to offer her a refund on condition that she does not chose our resorts for any future weddings or stays.
Sandals  has been welcoming guests through its doors for over three decades and prides itself on excellent service, award winning product and has one of the highest returning guest rates in the industry.
Sandals has been awarded some of the industry’s top accolades and awards including the ‘World’s Leading All-Inclusive’ at the World Travel Awards and ‘Top All Inclusive Brand for Honeymooners’ by Brides Magazines.

on condition she doesn't use any of their resorts for any future weddings or stays.

heehee

naughty. grin

I bloody love it.

Dawndonna Fri 25-Jan-13 16:41:32

HecateWhoopass Fri 25-Jan-13 16:41:41

ooh, oohh "Without an international profile, the resort team were oblivious of Ms Price’s fame"

HAHAHA!

Bloody brilliant.

freddiefrog Fri 25-Jan-13 16:43:58

I'd have loved to have been there when they wrote that

'how rude can we be? Can we say that? Ah, fuck it!'

Arithmeticulous Fri 25-Jan-13 16:44:51

The 'any future weddings' bit is the icing on that wedding cake grin

GlaikitCheiftanOThePuddinRace Fri 25-Jan-13 16:46:35

She'll be fizzing with anger!! Love it!

Jojobump1986 Fri 25-Jan-13 16:48:03

Rofl! I wonder how many other places will use that line when dealing with celebrities' complaints - 'We're sorry you feel that way. Have a refund but then never come back.' grin

3monkeys3 Fri 25-Jan-13 16:48:08

That has really made me smile!

That's given me a warm feeling in my tummy smile Love it!

HecateWhoopass Fri 25-Jan-13 16:50:10

Yes, shamy and normally I'd hate it, but let's all make an exception in this case, eh? grin

Its the bit of how she had to make them aware of who she is ...

SpicyPear Fri 25-Jan-13 16:50:53

WowOoo Fri 25-Jan-13 16:51:16

Good on 'em.

Thanks for the cut and paste FreddieFrog - far less distracting to read!

KenLeeeeeee Fri 25-Jan-13 16:52:33

Bwwahahahahahahahahahaha! Sensational. Bravo, Sandals. Bravo.

fuzzpig Fri 25-Jan-13 16:52:58

Haha. I've missed all this, what did she actually complain about?!

ShamyFarrahCooper Fri 25-Jan-13 16:54:11

Agreed Hecate . Tis too close to wine time to really give a damn wink

TroublesomeEx Fri 25-Jan-13 16:55:09

grin

MrsJREwing Fri 25-Jan-13 16:55:26

Puts me off them. I don't like the idea of anyone paying a service and being spoken to as a bride even third time the way the butler spoke to her, she is a human.

Creamtea1 Fri 25-Jan-13 16:56:31

Hate the daily mail usually but love that a lot

HecateWhoopass Fri 25-Jan-13 16:56:52

As far as I can make out, they thought she was a porn star. (wonder what gave them THAT impression...)
They had plastic sun loungers
there were photographers on a public beach that she chose to be on despite there being a private beach she could have used instead
and, erm, she's got a coldsore on her lip wonder if the bloke is walking funny atm

CaseyShraeger Fri 25-Jan-13 16:59:12

But the butler says he didn't say what she says he said, MrsJREwing. Which is possibly the most confusing sentence I've ever written on MN...

MrsJREwing Fri 25-Jan-13 17:01:00

There was a different like on the other thread.

yuleheart Fri 25-Jan-13 17:01:05

oooh sharp statement!

hahahahahahaha

also, didn't the butler ask her if she was a famous porn star?

hahahahahahaha

freddiefrog Fri 25-Jan-13 17:01:08

She says the butler asked if she was a porn star, Sandals deny he made any derogatory remarks

Also, the wedding tent was plastic and she saw someone else's tent being wheeled in on a wheelbarrow
She didn't get any privacy (after declining to use the private island they offered her)
And the sun loungers were plastic

You couldn't buy all this goodwill or publicity grin.

fantastic. Loving future weddings grin

MrsWolowitzerables Fri 25-Jan-13 17:09:59

Well done Sandals!

She's just horrid.

Excellent response from Sandals! grin

SirBoobAlot Fri 25-Jan-13 17:10:52

They offered her a private island to use, she refused to. She can't then complain about lack of privacy...

Well done, Sandals.

DreamingOfTheMaldives Fri 25-Jan-13 17:15:11

I would like buy their PR person a wine.

Fanbloodytastic!

In all fairness to the butler, I don't think it was an unreasonable assumption to make ...

MrsJREwing Fri 25-Jan-13 17:21:16

I know she is a step away from a porn star. Porn star, third wedding aside, she paid for a service and the butler spoke down to her. I wouldn't go near the place as a customer with pr and butlers that behave like that.

threesocksmorgan Fri 25-Jan-13 17:21:43

MrsJREwing I agree

Probably they were unwilling to give her the discount she wanted so thought she would use her clout to slur them .... Big mistake!!

StuckOnARollercoaster Fri 25-Jan-13 17:24:56

ooh another one loving that statement from Sandals!!!!

PoppyWearer Fri 25-Jan-13 17:25:09

Superb.

expatinscotland Fri 25-Jan-13 17:25:58

Oh, so what? He says he didn't speak down to her. She thinks everyone does.

Good on Sandals!

Hope her 15 minutes are up sooner rather than later.

HecateWhoopass Fri 25-Jan-13 17:26:35

The butler claims he said nothing of the kind, according to the article.

hmmm, on the one hand, we have a professional company who are well used to dealing with very famous people, and non famous very wealthy people and have built up a reputation of catering for a very elite group.

on the other hand, we have katie price. who loves publicity.

I have to say I am leaning towards believing the butler grin

SpicyPear Fri 25-Jan-13 17:31:13

But the butler only denies making "derogatory remarks". Is asking Katie Price if she is a porn star derogatory?

cory Fri 25-Jan-13 17:32:14

Was it perhaps in response to a haughty Do you not know who I am?

Willabywallaby Fri 25-Jan-13 17:33:25

grin

HecateWhoopass Fri 25-Jan-13 17:33:49

They said they refuted all her claims. So I assume they are including that in there.

Bobyan Fri 25-Jan-13 17:34:28

Can't stop and post, I'm off to book my Katie-Price-free sandals holiday!

MrsJREwing Fri 25-Jan-13 17:37:48

The woman admits to a cold sore, I believe her when she said the butler asked if she was a porn star. She has never lied, as far as I know, she is what she is an attention seeker, not a liar. Even Gareth Gates admitted he lied and had slept with her when she was pregnant in the end.

SpicyPear Fri 25-Jan-13 17:37:53

It's just occurred to me that it could be some really advanced bit of PR. Sandals/KP engineering the entire thing so they look good to Mumsnetty types. And Katie Price making cash playing on her unpopularity. Or have I strayed over into tin foil hat territory?

That's hilarious! Thanks for the link. Sandals has just risen in my estimations (from a VERY low base).

AWESOME

ArtfulAardvark Fri 25-Jan-13 17:41:01

I doubt the butler said that - but if he did I would have to wonder how inappropriate her language and behavoiur had been to prompt the query (i'm remembering having to switch off im a celebrity as her behaviour was yukky)

Narked Fri 25-Jan-13 17:41:42

Sandals are scum. Until 2004 they refused to accept gay couples in their resorts. Here.

Pancakeflipper Fri 25-Jan-13 17:42:26

Has Katie accepted the dosh and off to Butlins for her next Wedding?

Did The Sandals wedding planner make Katie wear that wedding porn dress?

Their PR team.need a bonus! Brilliant!

FreePeaceSweet Fri 25-Jan-13 17:46:11

I'm no KP fan but yikes this kind of thread is horrible. I know I'm alone on this one and prepared to be flamed but have I missed something or has she killed someone?

BackforGood Fri 25-Jan-13 17:48:02

grin Excellent statement from Sandals

She publicly slandered their Company. Good.on them for responding.

tomme Fri 25-Jan-13 17:49:36

Unbelievably I have to agree with kp assessment of sandals, went to that resort for our honeymoon lasted four nights and pretty much got a full refund when we flew home early and we werent the only British couple to do so that week. It's a dump, that private island so beautifully photographed is actually fenced off for cruise ships so the sandals private bit is a really small not very pretty beach, whilst the rest of the island is packed with day trippers from the cruiseliners.

Sandals is very much marketed as club 18-30 type holiday as far as I can gather in America rather than the luxurious resorts they are marketed as over here. I would never recommend a holiday there

Saying all that I am no fan of kp and love sandals statement.

HecateWhoopass Fri 25-Jan-13 17:49:57

bloody hell, narked. That's outrageous.

I still love their response to k price, but that's disgusting!

angelinterceptor Fri 25-Jan-13 17:52:14

I just love the statement and the bit near the end after the gesture of goodwill - I would so love to use part of that line in my business.

Over the years I have had stroppy customers who have been in the wrong, and have bullied our company, all the usual stuff of how many people they will tell etc etc. We have always done the refund/goodwill gesture too - but how I would love the tag line, "on condition you dont try to buy off me again".

CheCazzo Fri 25-Jan-13 17:57:49

FFS you people saying the butler shouldn't have said that and waaaaaah waaaaaaaaah how disgusting and elitist etc.

What on earth makes you believe Ms Price over the butler? Explain that please.

FreePeaceSweet Fri 25-Jan-13 17:58:22

Anyway. I'm sure it's no coincidence that the second picture of the Sandals resort resembles an upside down spunky cock. See?

thebody Fri 25-Jan-13 17:58:34

This is bloody brilliant.

The future wedding and the z list reference are superb.

Daft woman.

Isnt she a porn star?

I really thought she was.

I seriously dont believe a butler would ask her that.

HecateWhoopass Fri 25-Jan-13 18:13:57

has anyone looked at their prices?

A fortnight with them would buy you a new car!

Fabulous response by sandals

They've gone up in my estimation

NatashaBee Fri 25-Jan-13 18:19:00

Great response... love it! Although still not particular in favour of Sandals due to their ban on same sex couples until recently.

WilsonFrickett Fri 25-Jan-13 18:19:53

So she's writing her column in the Sun, complaining about photos which were published in... Erm... The Sun?

::post modern head on desk::

I think the only reason why I would not be booking with Sandals is that I cant afford it! grin

*So she's writing her column in the Sun, complaining about photos which were published in... Erm... The Sun?

::post modern head on desk::*

Ms Price clearly thinks the readers of the sun is as intellectually challenged as she is. grin

Sallyingforth Fri 25-Jan-13 18:21:48

It's hardly surprising that the butler thought she was a porn star.
What would anyone think who didn't know her, with those absurdly over-inflated tits?

CloudsAndTrees Fri 25-Jan-13 18:26:02

She's famous and rich because of the size of her tits. And as she used to be on page 3, which is pretty much porn, then if the butler did say that then he was making an astute observation.

MeatSweats Fri 25-Jan-13 18:28:12

FreePeace I love that link grin I'm sure no matter what the reason behind it Ms Price loves her name being kept in the spotlight. I'm sure anything said on this thread is like water off a ducks back to her. I've read worse.

freddiefrog Fri 25-Jan-13 18:30:56

She also did a naked centrefold shoot for Playboy didn't she?

Absolutely outstanding response. I lolled.

DyeInTheEar Fri 25-Jan-13 18:42:50

"A medium said the man I'd marry was called Kevin. Kieran's name is close to
Kevin and it all became clear" - KP - so on that basis she marries a man within weeks of meeting him..... Also wondering if the medium was taking the piss by just picking the name Kevin.

YouOldSlag Fri 25-Jan-13 18:53:40

If KP was so upset about photos being taken of her wedding by paps, why isn't she suing any of the many papers that printed them? Hmm? Interesting.

Some of the honeymoon pictures did look a bit like porn. She was naked on a sunlouger, on her back, legs apart with just a teeny thong protecting what's left of her Brazilian modesty. I saw these in The Sun by the way. The paper she writes a column for, so I don't think she's suing them for printing the photos.

Well played Sandals. Very well played.

Sallyingforth Fri 25-Jan-13 18:56:18

I genuinely feel sorry for the poor sod, being married to that pile of silicone.
Fortunately he'll be free again before long...

44SoStartingOver Fri 25-Jan-13 18:59:29

I thought she was a porn star too.

I know sandals are spendy, but I think Id be miffed at a plastic gazebo as a wedding tent.

But then I don't think I'd get married in a tent!

I had my honeymoon in Sandals St Lucia.

It was wonderful and I'll go back, now I know KP will not be darkening the doorstep....

EnjoyResponsibly Fri 25-Jan-13 19:05:39

Soon there will be no venues left for this micro-celeb to get married in.

Bravo Sandals!

And really what difference does it make if the tent and chairs were plastic? I would have thiught she'd be pleased that the resort had carried through her theme: plastic teeth, pastic lips, plastic tits, plastic dress and plastic orange husband.

MiniEggsinJanuary Fri 25-Jan-13 19:06:27

She's found someone else to marry??!!

EnjoyResponsibly Fri 25-Jan-13 19:08:16

mini I shouldn't worry, in the time it takes for this thread to fill he'll be past tense and appearing on CBB.

Mehrida Fri 25-Jan-13 19:09:21

I got married at a Sandals. The staff were lovely, the wedding was simple but gorgeous and it most certainly was not like an 18-30.

Awesome reply. Absolutely outstanding play by the PR team regardless of who you believe in the whole tale.

diaimchlo Fri 25-Jan-13 19:10:48

IMHO she is doing what she always does seeking attention.

I know she writes a column for the Sun and am surprised she isn't suing them for printing their front page picture of her...... had to read the caption underneath whilst in shop to see who it was...

I think sandals response was was great and do bear in mind this is Katie Price who is never backward at coming forward with her opinions whether they are positive or negative......

YouOldSlag Fri 25-Jan-13 19:12:05

exactly diam. If she really was upset about being all over the papers, she'd be suing the papers!

balia Fri 25-Jan-13 19:17:38

The butler probably thought she'd be flattered by the suggestion that she actually did something for a living.

Would love it if they started marketing Katie-Price free holidays. Would go.

FeistyLass Fri 25-Jan-13 19:24:42

She was right about their gazebo - it looked like cheap plastic tat.

Arisbottle Fri 25-Jan-13 19:32:48

I think it is snobby and unpleasant. I suspect I am not the sandals type but that alone would put me off.

Sallyingforth Fri 25-Jan-13 19:56:30

I know she writes a column for the Sun
Like most of the red-top 'celeb' contributions it will be written by a hack. They will be paying her for her name in order to sell papers to those of low intelligence who believe what they read.

WeeSooty Fri 25-Jan-13 20:03:02

Um.... She actually has done a porno film or a sex tape at least. My x bf made me watch it confused it's not pretty.

The response from sandals is fab!

SpringHeeledJack Fri 25-Jan-13 20:03:31

meh

I wouldn't have thought it was a good idea for Sandals to alienate rich twats with more money than sense

qualitytoffee Fri 25-Jan-13 20:08:45

Freddiefrog, you are NBU! Fair play to you!
as Spring said..Meh xx

Gottalovecosta Fri 25-Jan-13 21:05:35

Love it! Cackled reading it this morning in the paper- fantastic comment from Sandals!

KittyLane1 Fri 25-Jan-13 21:15:14

Erm...her whole body is cheap plastic tat. And talking about tat did she not see her own wedding dress. I particularly love her classy wedding pic of her boobs falling out her "dress"

CheCazzo Fri 25-Jan-13 21:19:36

There are more than enough rich twats out there to keep Sandals in business and I'm pretty sure that almost all of them would be relieved to know they didn't have to share their space with old pneumatic tits and her entourage of bitchy hairdressers!

FeistyLass Fri 25-Jan-13 21:33:52

From reading this thread, it's not only hairdressers that are bitchy hmm

YouOldSlag Fri 25-Jan-13 21:43:04

I can't believe the woman with 6 boob jobs and a polyester mini skirted wedding dress that showed her nipples complained that the Gazebo looked cheap.

GuffSmuggler Fri 25-Jan-13 21:45:23

Errrm she was properly posing for those sun pictures she wasn't "papped" unawares?!

<can't believe I've been drawn in>

YouOldSlag Fri 25-Jan-13 21:49:36

The photos were in lots of newspapers and magazines and she hasn't sued any of them, yet is complaining to the hotel that she couldn't get married in private and the press took photos.

Yet she refused the offer of privacy from the hotel, posed for many photographs, and hasn't sued anyone who published them.

Fantastic!

You know what, if I had paid a fortune for an an upmarket holiday, and found that I was sharing the beach with Ms Price, I would be devastated, she really lowers the tone anywhere she goes. I might as well have shacked up at a 2 star ibiza hotel.

Bessie123 Fri 25-Jan-13 22:00:47

I think Sandals' response is petty and unprofessional, actually.

OlivetheotherReindeer Fri 25-Jan-13 22:05:28

Brilliant. Just brilliant.

I think it is a marketing stroke of genius.

If she has been given lots of freebies, and good advice from their wedding planner, and she turns it around and rubbish their business and efforts in a tabloid, I say good on them for a number of reasons.

1. The sun's readers are hardly their demographic target, so very few potential customers would read this.
2. The likes of Katie Price and people who lurve her, are also not likely to be in their target group, so they had absolutely NO need to respond unless:

A) They know the whole palavar, Ms Price and their response will endear them to their actual demographic target group who have no time for silicon playbabes; and
B) get them LOTS of free publicity. This is the kind of publicity money cant buy... Priceless!

CheCazzo Fri 25-Jan-13 22:07:18

Really really wish there was a 'like' button - would send it into overdrive for Pure's post!

So instead of doing the 'normal' thing she chose to air her gripe without giving them the decency of a right to reply. Decency cuts both ways ...

Ooooh can't stand the mucky bint.

CheCazzo Fri 25-Jan-13 22:11:29

I think Sandals' response is petty and unprofessional, actually

<<<waves at Pricey>>> grin grin

WorraLiberty Fri 25-Jan-13 22:13:45

Bottleoffish Fri 25-Jan-13 22:14:00

Gosh. Her wedding dress looks like she's on a hen night in a fancy dress bride outfit...

williaminajetfighter Fri 25-Jan-13 22:16:30

Funniest thread I've read In a long time.

I work in PR and see how much more gutsy companies are getting when threatened. Sure the customer is always right but its important to get across that this sort of behavior isn't on.

Back to Jordan. Who buys her merchandise and who watches her shows? Whoever it is could they stop because that might make her go away.

MidniteScribbler Fri 25-Jan-13 22:22:02

I thought she was a porn star??

ColgateIsBest Fri 25-Jan-13 22:35:45

I've just been looking at the photos that The Sun printed ( http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/4750745/katie-price-married-stripper-after-psychics-advice.html ) and KP looks really different, has she had some plastic surgery done on her face or something?

2rebecca Fri 25-Jan-13 22:37:38

I thought she was a porn star. Wasn't that what she was famous for in the first place, having large breasts and wearing very little? I don't follow celebrities much but didn't think she was an actress or had a proper job I thought she did page 3 type stuff. Good on Sandals

Sarahplane Fri 25-Jan-13 22:40:31

haha that's fantastic

RedPencils Fri 25-Jan-13 22:42:06

grin

freddiefrog Fri 25-Jan-13 22:45:08

I don't know if she did proper porn, but she's done topless/glamour stuff. She did do a shoot for Playboy as well.

2rebecca Fri 25-Jan-13 22:47:55

It's being famous for taking your clothes off which for me is porn, it's stuff for men to wank over.
Other women aren't impressed by that sort of stuff. The Sun says she married a male porn star so I'm surprised she thinks being a porn star is degrading, bodes well for the marriage.

zookeeper Fri 25-Jan-13 22:58:29

It's wildly unprofessional but utterly brilliant grin

differentnameforthis Sat 26-Jan-13 02:58:09

Technically, she IS a porn star. At least still porn. How did she find fame? Page 3. Naked photos ARE porn. So I don't see her problem, sorry!

DioneTheDiabolist Sat 26-Jan-13 03:34:43

I think that she did what anyone would expect of her.
I think that Sandals have done well out of this.
I think that both parties have benefitted.

I think that this thread is bitchy and judgmental. What the papers say isn't the full story.

Pootle78 Sat 26-Jan-13 08:23:12

Am I the only one who was surprised she wasn't marrying Leo? ( -- so behing with the times -- )

Lueji Sat 26-Jan-13 08:38:47

I can just picture the conversation:

Don't you know I'm famous?

Apologies, madam, what are you famous for?

For taking my clothes off and sleeping with lots of men.

Oh, madam, are/were you a porn star?

What the f* are you saying, do I look like a f**** porn star?

Apologies, madam, but yes, you do.

Cue massive strop.

Not sure i should admit this but I've been to the same Sandals as a witness for my friends wedding and it was amazing!

The place, food, rooms and staff were lovely and the service was exceptional.

She is never happy unless she's in the limelight and unless things have changedramatically she's lying.

Arisbottle Sat 26-Jan-13 09:11:32

I just think it is awful that a company may feel that it is OK to personally attack you because you are not their kind of people.

cuillereasoupe Sat 26-Jan-13 09:19:24

I think it's disgusting...

...that a professional PR statement should have a second sentence starting with a dangling participle.

specialsubject Sat 26-Jan-13 09:55:07

brilliant. you can just hear it : 'do you know who I am?' 'No.'

This horrendous bimbo actually comes from quite a posh background, so how she came out so low-rent is beyond me. If she doesn't want people to assume that she is a porn star, she needs to stop dressing like one.

even her only saving grace, her apparent good parenting skills, are going down the tubes with the parade of boyfriends and quick marriages.

oh well, a useful example that breast enlargement does not bring happiness.

YouOldSlag Sat 26-Jan-13 10:02:36

I just think it is awful that a company may feel that it is OK to personally attack you because you are not their kind of people

She slandered them in public. In a national newspaper. She made her attack on them very personal, and they didn't roll over and ask her to tickle their tummy.

I think if you give it out, you've got to expect retaliation sometimes.

EnjoyResponsibly Sat 26-Jan-13 10:16:46

<checks date> it's been over a week now

Are Jordan and Kevin still together?

YouOldSlag Sat 26-Jan-13 10:21:23

I'd better check Digital Spy. These things move fast!

insancerre Sat 26-Jan-13 10:30:32

Love it

Xales Sat 26-Jan-13 10:53:54

I am confused on several points.

Didn't she make a name for herself with topless pictures ie soft porn meaning she is technically a porn star? I am doubtful about the word star to be honest...

Also wasn't there recently an article about her returning an engagement ring after splitting up as he didn't /couldn't pay for it?

Is this another one already or did they reconcile and I was fortunate to miss it?

GuffSmuggler Sat 26-Jan-13 11:04:25

Lueji grin

I'm still confused that she claims she wanted a private wedding when the whole thing was a blatant publicity stunt!?

giraffesCantGoFirstFooting Sat 26-Jan-13 11:10:17

that statement is fucking hillarious

Nancy66 Sat 26-Jan-13 11:30:35

she made a sex tape which she sold and made money from - makes her a porn star in my book

CheCazzo Sat 26-Jan-13 11:43:58

I just think it is awful that a company may feel that it is OK to personally attack you because you are not their kind of people

I expect they think it's awful that a two bit professional tramp can rubbish them in the national press in a way that given her previous form was probably lies. Should they have no right of reply? And I suspect that if she had kept her mouth shut and stopped her gums from flapping they would certainly not have made comment on whether she was their 'type of person' at all.

BrianCoxandTheTempleofDOOM Sat 26-Jan-13 12:04:06

so those saying this thread is nasty and bitchy.

It isn't an innocent little 'lady' being discussed here.

It is somebody who's entire career is based on good and bad publicity and publicly flaunting her tits, arse, pout, general pointlessness, endless marriages and her family life. It is somebody who went all out to complain publicly about a bad service, what did she expect? Them to bow to the greatness that is Katie Price? Or to defend themselves?

She put herself in the public eye, she flashes her tits and arse constantly - yet because she's a woman and we are women we are supposed to pat her on the back and say 'you are flying the flag for feminism' and 'we support you'?

Or, we can all have our opinions of her and share them when there is cause to (as there is in this instance). Love her or hate her, she isn't to be protected from comments.

It's not as though this thread was started just for the sake of it, she commented in a public newspaper and gobbed off - she opened herself up to criticism IMO.

There are plenty of 'celebs' that I can't bear, she tops the list because she is vile and I have yet to see/read/hear of any redeeming quality she possesses. Oh wait - she's a really canny business woman apparently hmm

it is rare I comment on such threads (read them of course) but gah this woman makes my skin crawl

thebody Sat 26-Jan-13 12:07:41

It's the funniest and rudest statement I have ever read.

Good on them. She trashed them first and she got both barrels.

Serve her right.

Arisbottle Sat 26-Jan-13 12:09:04

If a company ruined my wedding and I had a public forum I would use it to complain. Mumsnetters use this public forum to complain about companies all the time. Does that mean that companies are able to make rude, personal and s snobby attacks on us?

I don't think you have a license to be personally rude about anyone , even if you don't agree with their life choices. Snobbery is always wrong .

GW297 Sat 26-Jan-13 12:10:58

This has made my day! Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Arisbottle Sat 26-Jan-13 12:12:57

No it is not because she is a woman but because she is a human being, I can't see why you want to be personally rude about anyone who has not caused real harm.

As a feminist I loathe all that Katie Price stands for , I can separate that from gleefully making cruel, snobby comments about her. In a similar manner I cannot stand what the Duchess of Cambridge stands for , I may attack that but not the actual person .

BrianCoxandTheTempleofDOOM Sat 26-Jan-13 12:13:56

They wouldn't have had cause to comment on her lifestyle, had she not been rude about them in a national newspaper.

A 'celeb' commenting in a newspaper as widely read as The Sun, versus a MNer complaining on a forum - vastly different impact on potential sales (although had the MNer given KP's evidence, they potentially would have got a resounding YABU in relation to her complaints of lack of privacy).

I reckon they're as bad as each other - I have no desire to go on a Sandals holiday, have always thought of them as 18-30 fodder (never really paid that much attention though)

If you are a disgruntled customer, you have a right to complain. As the company at the receiving end, you have a right to reply. They didn't have to be rude, but she was and very publicly and I don't blame them for giving it to her both barrels. She has far too high an opinion of her 'fame' and other's perception of how amazing she is.

Arisbottle Sat 26-Jan-13 12:16:35

Which has the wider readership, the Sun or MN? i genuinely do not know. Is there a cut off point of the number of people who can read your complaint before that opens you up to personal attacks.

I have no issue with the company defending themselves , it was the personal dig they made.

LadyBeagleEyes Sat 26-Jan-13 12:17:34

I can't believe they refunded her, for such paltry complaints.
She's got millions in the bank.
Greedy cow.

BrianCoxandTheTempleofDOOM Sat 26-Jan-13 12:17:48

As a feminist I loathe all that Katie Price stands for , I can separate that from gleefully making cruel, snobby comments about her. In a similar manner I cannot stand what the Duchess of Cambridge stands for , I may attack that but not the actual person .

The way she rams her lifestyle down the media's throat (media more than happy to have this happen of course) is why I don't see a problem with people making cruel (i don' think they are cruel, most of it is light hearted), snobby comments - she isn't an innocent. The persona she gives so much air time to, is what is being attacked surely? Couldn't care less if she is a celibate nun behind the cameras. The behind the cameras KP isn't what is being commented on.

Jeez, why am I allowing this 'celeb' head space? because otherwise I'd have to do some housework grin

BrianCoxandTheTempleofDOOM Sat 26-Jan-13 12:19:58

Which has the wider readership, the Sun or MN? i genuinely do not know. probably much of a muchness? However, one thread on MN from a disgrunteld customer may only get 100 replies (ok, there are some that get less and some more) with maybe 500 lurked views (possibly more?) So in that aspect, it isn't comparable.

Unless of course the complaint is deemed worthy enough of a campaign/gets media coverage - at which point the Power of Mumsnet kicks The Sun's ass wink

Arisbottle Sat 26-Jan-13 12:20:27

I often feel like the Duchess of Cambridge is forcing her lifestyle down my throat, she certainly dominates the same media outlets that KP does.

BrianCoxandTheTempleofDOOM Sat 26-Jan-13 12:23:05

I've no interest in the DoC, other than a passing interest in what's occuring in the country (and yes, I did pay attention to their wedding but it was a historical event n all that)

I've little interest in most things that I am supposed to have interest in (according to the likes of Heat, OK! and other such shite wink) I do like to learn that other people are also as uninterested as me, makes me feel less alone grin

Nancy66 Sat 26-Jan-13 12:26:32

MN's readership is a drop in the ocean compared to The Sun!

The Sun sells just under 3million copies a day - with about 6 million people reading the paper on a daily basis not to mention the millions more who read the website

I'm surprised she went to Sandals. With her money you'd think she could afford somewhere better than fucking Sandals.

meddie Sat 26-Jan-13 12:33:40

It made me chuckle.

Nancy66 Sat 26-Jan-13 12:37:24

Akiss - an upmarket resort wouldn't have wanted her though.

Arisbottle Sat 26-Jan-13 12:39:26

Thanks Nancy, I genuinely didn't know. Do many sun reader buy overpriced sandals holidays?

Although I am not a sandals holidays type person I suspect we may be the income bracket. I had not heard of the complaint by Katie Price until I read the thread in here. The company must have known that they were raising the profile of this complaint by making such a personal attack on Katie Price. So they are ridiculing a woman not to defend them selves but to create publicity. Not very nice IMO.

'Akiss - an upmarket resort wouldn't have wanted her though.'

Really? On what basis can an upmarket resort turn someone away? Especially as they claim not to have heard of her fame.

Arisbottle Sat 26-Jan-13 12:43:55

I find it repulsive that a holiday resort would turn someone down on the basis they they might not be good enough.

I have a fair bit if cash but am very common , can I have a list of places what will turn me away? Will save both of us any embarrassment .

Nancy66 Sat 26-Jan-13 12:47:12

I can't imagine KP simply booked with Sandals and turned up without there having been some nogotiation about discount, publicity, photography etc.

I know some London hotels refuse to accept certain celebrity guests if they think it will negatively impact on their other guests.

manicbmc Sat 26-Jan-13 12:48:46

She ruined her own wedding by refusing their offer of a private island for the ceremony and instead choosing to have it on a public beach where the paps were. Then she has the brass neck to complain.

She is a silly woman.

KateSMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 26-Jan-13 12:50:29

<AHEM>

manicbmc Sat 26-Jan-13 12:51:01

Nasty cough you have there. grin

80sMum Sat 26-Jan-13 12:51:20

It's rather sad, in a way, that she (Miss Price) thinks of herself as important, when in reality everyone is laughing at her.

SucksToBeMe Sat 26-Jan-13 12:59:42

I don't mind KP. No matter what she does she will always be hated for it. I've met her when she did some charity work,and found her to be lovely.

Why make such a fuss about Wedding Nr 3? It is just a wedding. One of many.

YouOldSlag Sun 27-Jan-13 00:06:34

I had not heard of the complaint by Katie Price until I read the thread in here. The company must have known that they were raising the profile of this complaint by making such a personal attack on Katie Price.

Don't blame Sandals- it was KP who has an entire one page column in The Sun and chose her page in a National newspaper to slag them off. They merely responded, which they have a right to do.

They could have sued her for slander, but instead they simply issued a press statement. KP said " Sandals? More like a smelly old flip flop"- is that not derogatory?

Do you expect a business not to respond to a newspaper article in a national UK newspaper with approx 6 million readers?

Gingersstuff Sun 27-Jan-13 01:58:15

Last week I stayed in a gorgeous inn on a work trip, in the village that KP used to stay in. The local taxi driver stayed there too. He told me that the villagers all threw a massive street party on the day she moved out...apparently she was vile. Good on Sandals.

Lueji Sun 27-Jan-13 07:39:26

An upmarket resort would have proper privacy.

She wouldn't be able to be "caught" by paparazzi, or complain about it...

Lueji Sun 27-Jan-13 07:54:16

Are Jordan and Kevin still together?

It's not Kevin, though.
It's Keiran (why is my brain even engaged on this?), because it's close enough to the "Kevin" that the fortune teller told her. confused
In common: K___n

Good on her for landing a 25 year old, though.

YouOldSlag Sun 27-Jan-13 10:33:56

Lueji- Sandals offered the private beach on their own private island but she refused.

LengLogs Sun 27-Jan-13 10:55:05

Wedding tent was made out of plastic? Did she expect it to be made out of diamonds?

'I was so stressed I came home with a cold sore'

No dear, might be all the cock you've had recently. I suggest you visit your local GUM clinic.

zookeeper Sun 27-Jan-13 13:27:52

I get cold sores. Nowt to do with cock. Sadly.

BlueSkySunnyDay Sun 27-Jan-13 14:38:18

I am puzzled by all the Sandals - 18-30 comparisons, I always thought of Sandals as a reasonably expensive company probably frequented by smug fat older company directors and their botoxed younger wives - rather than shagging drunk teenagers (was I wrong?)

Having been unable to avoid the photos of her visit to Sandals I am amazed she says the Gazebo looked cheap - did she look in the mirror at any point, at the skintight nippley wedding dress (and it is possible to look sexy at a wedding without looking cheap) Lets not even get into the revolting legs akimbo tattooed photo of her wearing nothing but oil and tiny white pants (boak)

Surely photos of yourself with clothes off are soft porn?

Not even remotely 18 - 30. Was full of American couples when we went aged 25.
