I have read an article on the above where she states despite being 18 weeks pregnant and pleased up until now she will be having an abortion to "further her career" namely to qppear on big brother.

whether this is morally ok is one thing but AIBU to ask if an abortion for the reasons she gives is legal? i suppose its similar to someone saying its not the right time, just more brazen?

(I consider myself pro choice btw I just find her apparent callousness a bit tough to take)

SabrinaMulhollandJjones Sun 27-Apr-14 22:52:17

Yes, Doctrine, me too. Love the way the tabloids (and many others) jumped on the story from the "feckless women aborting innocent baybies" angle though... hmm

Which is why the quote I posted from Martin Robbins upthread is so, so important. It's her decision - no one else's.

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Sun 27-Apr-14 22:40:11

I hope that she is happy with her decision.

FWIW, I wouldn't be in the least surprised if she had never intended to have an abortion and it was all about the publicity. None of which changes my view on her right to that abortion if she had wanted it.

Poor kid.

Today I was shopping and her face was plastered across the Sinday Mirror.

Apparently she felt the baby kick and it was a sign - an epiphany if you like- and she couldn't go through with it.

Nothing at all to do with CBB and The H8terz on FaceBook then?

FWIW Josie, not that you give a shiney sh*t what I think, I think you made the right decision to keep the baby.
I think you'd have looked back after your fling with fame and thought was it worth it ?

I agree that she seems to be making some unwise choices regarding telling the press (who are Not Her Friends) so much about her life, but she's not the first person to do this.
Mind you, men who have 'car crash' lives (drink, drugs, relationship difficulties) don't seem to get quite the same sort of demolition derby effect from both ordinary press and social media. Assorted rapists and wifebeaters get their fuckups brushed aside, pretty much. Funny, that...

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Sat 26-Apr-14 00:22:45

Look, I think it's odd and unwise to tell the press about health details (Cherie Blair and the forgotten diaphragm, anyone?) but I don't think it's immoral.

NeedsAsockamnesty Sat 26-Apr-14 00:10:32

hmm exploitation of women by using the sex trade and you think he's owed a duty of confidentiality?

70isaLimitNotaTarget Fri 25-Apr-14 21:01:56

Maybe he did agree before that he wanted it kept quiet?

And the Belt& Braces - ok she probably didn't want to get pg by a client but she said she wasn't using birth control with the friend (footballer)

The morals isn't her contraception laxity it's her blabbering in the press about it.

As I said before, she's either had the abortion or not. Hopefully she'll just get on with her life and enjoy her flash of fame.

And explain to her little boy when he comes home from school about Mummy in the papers with her tits out

70isaLimitNotaTarget Fri 25-Apr-14 20:57:13

There was something about getting past week 12 with this pg (hence the bump cossetting photos)

I want breasts/ I want to be a model/ I want them taken out/I want money, I'll be an escort /I don't know who the dad is/I want to go on BB/I want a big house/I want fame/I want a pink RR/ I want an abortion/ I want my teeth done

See a theme ?

I want to bleach my brain so i'm bowing out

YoureBeingASillyBilly Fri 25-Apr-14 20:54:04

As for belt and braces? Why doesnt everyone use belt and braces? Hardly means she has no morals.

YoureBeingASillyBilly Fri 25-Apr-14 20:52:27

"I called the client straight away. He was shocked and begged me to keep it quiet"

Bit late asking after the event! She's under no obligation to keep quiet. If that was so important to him he should have made sure it was agreed beforehand. He was an idiot to think he was guaranteed any sort of secrecy/ anonymity. All celebs nowadays know they are a target for kiss and tell stories from fame hungry wannabes.

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Fri 25-Apr-14 20:49:28

She had five miscarriages and two children. I do not know if she was TTC when she had those pregnancies or not - has she said?

70isaLimitNotaTarget Fri 25-Apr-14 20:45:23

"I called the client straight away. He was shocked and begged me to keep it quiet"

I'm not in the head of the client but I'm pretty sure if he saw fit to pay for the company of Ms Cunningham he reckoned on having sex with no ties.
( Condom split according to news report)
Not finding his detail plastered in the news.

OK no contraception is 100% and it's a risk you take but hmm remind me how many times this woman has been pg? Eight?

Why did she not use "Belt and Braces" contraception?

YoureBeingASillyBilly Fri 25-Apr-14 20:30:02

No morals? Why? confused why should she keep quiet for other people's reputations?

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Fri 25-Apr-14 20:26:24

"Just proves though that this woman has no morals though IMO."

Why no morals? It's pretty common in business to say "Glaxo and Vodafone are my clients" unless Glaxo and Vodafone specifically ask you not to do so.

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Fri 25-Apr-14 20:25:07


Doubt she signed a confidentiality agreement.

Being a bit flip, but I honestly think that many people who look bad in the press don't know when it's wise to say "no comment" - unless you are very used to picking your words, like a politician, you will say more than you would do in, say, a written answer. And then politicians are berated for giving a politician's answer. Look at Cherie Blair and the nightie photo - and that's a smart woman who is at least somewhat used to publicity.

Well she isnt subject to data protection laws. Anyone can say they shagged someone if it's true. If he doesnt want people knowing he's best to keep it in his trousers or have her sign a pre shag silencer agreement.

70isaLimitNotaTarget Fri 25-Apr-14 20:19:11

I have no issue with money changing hands for sex if it's the choice of both parties.
But aside from "the footballer" who was a friend, she gave alot of detail about the "client".

He went to her for a paid service. He does not deserve to have his details plastered over the press.

PrimalLass Fri 25-Apr-14 20:14:54

Has been a mention

PrimalLass Fri 25-Apr-14 20:14:28

There as been a mention of a footballer already.

YoureBeingASillyBilly Fri 25-Apr-14 20:00:18

Any footballer or sleb with half a brain will give her a wide berth and those that dont shouldnt expect any protection from being named and shamed by her. Lets be honest they've all had fair warning now that she'll talk about anything.

PrimalLass Fri 25-Apr-14 19:56:53

Probably because she will come out with a footballer-kiss-and-tell next.

"Try getting a job Josie. Even prostitution, I have no qualms about prostitutes but try not to get up-duffed and FFS keep your clients confidential information confidential eh? )"

If you have no qualms about prostitution, why do you have qualms about her client names being known?

70isaLimitNotaTarget Fri 25-Apr-14 18:42:52

Well (much as I don't want to give this silly young woman any more of my thought time) she was having the procedure at a private clinic this week.

So she'll have done it or she won't.
Personally, I think if she's been overlooked for a place on CBB, she won't have done.
But I wouldn't like to think of the children she has or the child she might have finding all the news reports in years to come.

So the Press can hopefully put her to bed and not grace our pages with her (not my quote ) camel chewing a toffee face << smirk>> .

Until next time she decides to claim her fame.
