Anyone watched it on c4 ? me and DP found it quite good just a mother doing the best she can for her kids with what she has my view of her has changed completely
everything she says and does is for money none of it is even true shes no more outrageous than Catherine Tate

I watched it too and felt quite sorry for her after seeing it.
Much of the outrage she has caused seemed to have been generated/dreamed up by her "manager", who was more than happy to encourage her to tweet controversial things as, surprise,surprise, it generated more publicity and subsequently more money of which, no doubt, he gets a percentage.
What he doesn't receive though, is the venom and vitriol which is all directed at her and cannot possibly be good for her mental health, no matter what she says.
He was also very quick to shut down discussions about money and fees which she seemed quite prepared to speak about until he jumped in.
It wouldn't surprise me if, in years to come, she discovers she was paid far more for her interviews and stories, than she ever knew.
I hope he's advised her about completing a self-assessment form for her tax bill!!!

i dunno tbh i dont think she came off well, maybe slightly less bad at best very poorly directed and naiive, than I expected , why is this her thought of way to support her kids? im.a bit wary of the manager too, didn't seem to bothered about her going into premature labour.

I watched it I have no opinion of her to start with because I don't really know who she is but I felt a bit sorry for her and her manager was right dodgy she won't be around much longer thankfully there will always be someone to take her place and give her 5 years she won't think she is to good for big brother as the manager will have spent all her money

Mrsjayy Fri 23-Jan-15 08:29:38

I also can't believe the effort internet haters go to to insult her maybe they watched it and will realise they are paying her.

she's probably got this year to make money and then that'll be it, so I don't blame her for milking it. Although agreeing to a story that you are considering aborting your own kid doesn't make her look like a particularly decent person.

The throwaway abortion comments had my mouth hitting the floor

Nancy66 Fri 23-Jan-15 09:22:49

Her 'agent' seemed very amateur and out of his depth. Sounded like he'd landed her in some legal hot water by falsely claiming that a premier league player was the father of her baby.

Then they had to fudge it and say it was a bloke pretending to be the football player. I wouldn't be surprised if lawyers representing the actual player have asked for evidence that there's a bloke going around pretending to be him.

Anything she's earned is prob going to get eaten up in legal fees now.

I don't know what to make of the manager or Josie.

natureplantar101 Fri 23-Jan-15 09:29:18

That manager creeped me out from the moment i saw him looks like a total user with no idea what he's doing . on the other hand shes very clean i was shock at how clean and tidy her kitchen is grin wish i could be that organised

Mrsjayy Fri 23-Jan-15 09:32:20

The agent looked like he should be hanging about the park drinking cider not running somebodies media career. I did find their detachment of emotion a wee bit disrurbing was interesting to see how it all works though hiring photographer s planting stories etc

ChoochiWoo Fri 23-Jan-15 10:01:05

totally agree mrs j looked a right chav, yea the flippancy towards abortion is just shock shock and then the smokingangry angry

Nancy66 Fri 23-Jan-15 10:04:52

Even the smoking was contrived I think . Interesting that she didn't smoke when she had the other two.

Mrsjayy Fri 23-Jan-15 10:16:13

Its the need for fame or notoriety I can't get my head around I don't understand what drives them it can't all be about money surely?

DreamingOfAHotDrink Fri 23-Jan-15 10:20:49

They made fools out of bullies and people who are too keen to judge others on limited information, as well as money, so good for them.

I didn't realise that the NHS did her breast implants because she actually had no breast tissue at all.

From the media I assumed that she'd had them because her natural boobs were say a B cup and she wanted bigger ones.

Mrsjayy Fri 23-Jan-15 10:31:06

I saw her on daybreak when she first got her implants thought good for her then she is now this media sensation It is mad how its gone

natureplantar101 Fri 23-Jan-15 15:04:59

she showed a pic of her before the operation and she had boobs small one like a 28a cup but still there mine are a 28a and they are definitely boobs and there is breast tissue there hmm

I think her manager who seems to have the mental ability and questionable values of a not too bright 18 year old (and no experience), has mismanaged her totally. Someone older, experienced and more savvy could get a good few years money for herout of her story so that she could have a stable financial future for her children, without making her vilified or a hate figure which as she was bullied, cant be good for her psychologically and will have consequences for her children at school and socially in the future.

I really feel sorry for her kids as this will be thrown at them when they are older if not already. They didn't ask for any of this, she could have got normal job like the rest of us to earn money for her kids.
