Is it another whinge about being in Cherie's shadow?

Oh no! here it is

"In my case, I didn’t report the rape because I knew that my ex wasn’t the type who was going to attack other women. He wanted to assault me to make me feel that I was lower than him and that (because of my behaviour) I deserved one final act of abuse."

does she name her ex, or is there going to be more speculation about who her rapist is?

Feenie Sun 20-Sep-09 10:48:08

There would be if she <ahem> let slip it was a celebrity.

Why submit an article at all if it does not have a point to it.
She could have claimed to have understood Katie price because of fear of not being able to cope giving the specifics (re-living the rape) etc
She could have continued to live with it privately and by that I don't mean to keep it a secret.
There seems so little to be gained apart from the sum a journalist earns for such articles!
Am I alone in thinking that giving these women a platform to stand while they drip feed the public, pulls the rug from under the feet of those brave people who put victims first and foremost?
