Katie Price arrested for allegedly drunk driving
ilovegin112 · 10/10/2018 14:32
I wonder how differently she will be treated compared to ant mcpartlin
TinyTwat · 10/10/2018 14:37
Isn't she already banned from driving for having 12pts on her licence?
speakout · 10/10/2018 14:39
She just got her licence back.
She isn't having a good time right now- she is supposed to be in rehab at the priory, and having a night off.
Up for bankruptcy in three weeks too.
All falling apart.

Do you think she'll be treated harsher than Ant?
At first I thought "what a joke" but I say that as shes a mother and not being a good role model. I think she needs help.
Also Ant I think was over the limit the day after where as she seems to have drove after a night out.

I am not sure i buy the Rehab story and think it was something thought up to better her image.
She clearly needs some help though.
Starlight345 · 10/10/2018 14:45
She needs to loose her license for a very long time IF she has been drunk driving.
My reason been she has lost her license a few times . I consider owning a licence a privilege. She has no respect.

I thought she was supposed to be in rehab at the Priory - but it seems a bit odd if she is allowed out to party.
ilovegin112 · 10/10/2018 14:46
Sorry I didn’t mean about the technicalities of the offence( I didn’t know she’d alrea been done)
I meant that at the time it was poor ant and all his problems whereas I can’t see Katie getting the same backing
LIZS · 10/10/2018 14:46
Depends if anyone captured it on their phone, to sell to the tabloids.

Was it? My thoughts were more around karma.
DonDrapersOldFashioned · 10/10/2018 14:50
What a trainwreck this woman’s life is . A string of shitty relationships, Mum with terminal lung disease, failed businesses, bankruptcy, a crumbling house she can’t sell, vilified in the press. Now this?
Starlight345 · 10/10/2018 14:52
I have read report now . iF correct she presumably had her car there so always planned to drive.
She was out patient at the priory . How does someone facing bankruptcy afford the priory?
SleepingStandingUp · 10/10/2018 14:55
How does someone facing bankruptcy afford the priory? they're never bankrupt for long, look at Kerry Catona. Perhaps they've agreed to treat now pay later after she sells her story or pictures. Or Peter has paid for the kids sakes
nancy75 · 10/10/2018 14:57
Reports are that in 2012 she was worth £45mil, my guess is although she’s facing bankruptcy she’s not actually skint - generally people with that much money have it in different companies and have financial advisors who will advise them in the best way to go bankrupt while actually still having quite a lot of money. I don’t think we’ll be seeing her at a food bank anytime soon
ChelleDawg2020 · 10/10/2018 14:59
I took the "she'll be treated differently to Ant from Ant & Dec" as meaning she'll get a gentler ride from the press, not a rougher one. Ant from Ant & Dec at least apologised, something Price seems to find hard to do (unless it's a veiled insult, like "I'm sorry you're less popular than me").
Given her track record I hope the media do run her through the mill, but I expect "Poor Jordan" will be treated much better than most drink-driving scum ever would (or should) be.
BabySharkAteMyHamster · 10/10/2018 15:00
I've no.interest in either of them but I do know it isnt Kates first offence. Plus she's also dragging her poor kids into it at, one of which has only her as his support because his useless father fucked off.
That said I do have a lot of sympathy for Kate, she's obviously very troubled and her mums illness has been her final kick in the face. But as a mum I still feel she needs to pull herself together 🤷♀️ and get real help. She needs a good friend at the mo and I don't think she has that.
PinkHeart5914 · 10/10/2018 15:14
Having a tough time isn’t an excuse though is it? Plenty of people have it rough and they aren’t out drink driving selfishly putting other people at risk of being hurt
She has behaved selfisisly and was fucking irresponsible so no I’m having rough time doesn’t really cut it
WhoLetTheCatsOut · 10/10/2018 15:17
Her mum is terminally ill and it seems she's in self destruct mode which is terribly sad.
OnlyFoolsnMothers · 10/10/2018 15:20
Feel so sorry for this woman, all her friends seemingly use her or stab her in the back, hasnt had a decent man since Peter Andre (even he dumped her days after a miscarrage), her mums ill......i hope perhaps her brother can sweep in and sort her out. Then again if someone's on self destruct mode what can anyone do.
PlinkPlink · 10/10/2018 15:21
She will be treated differently.
Ant was seen as a good in the public eye. Though that has since gone down a bit with dating his PA. But the majority of the public felt sorry for him. I think I did to some extent. He's spent so long in the public eye and this is his first misdemeanour/meltdown. It's quite impressive considering how long him and Dec have been under the spotlight.
Katie Price on the other hand is like marmite anyway. She does ridiculous things to warrant attention from the press. Behaves atrociously when she's single - only from the viewpoint that she's a mother. I'm pretty sure her kids are going to be quite embarrassed when they're older. She's been seen rapping about coke when she's drunk, endlessly flitting from one man to the next. Nothing wrong with alcohol, coke or man hopping but it's not what you want your kids to see or be around, I don't think.
She knows how to drum up publicity and she's not really afraid of what ways to do it. Some people could see that as a good way of ensuring she has money for her kids. Others will see it as a horrendous way to behave when you have children.
She's needed help for a long time. I've seen her in Closer (don't judge me 😂) many times (they love a good story on Jordan) and she just needs to sort herself out. Stay single for a bit, stop being so dependent on men. Stop drinking to 'have a good time'. It is fun but she never seems to be able to have a good night out without getting plastered. I think she's drowning in this endless need to prove she's everything: She's a model, she's a businesswoman, she's a mum, she's hot, she's fiery, she's independent.
Quite honestly, it's a bit distressing to see how much she's going out of control.
Therealjudgejudy · 10/10/2018 15:26
Totally agree with the poster who said she is in self destruct mode. She really needs to wake up and gets serious about getting help.
Sparklesocks · 10/10/2018 15:33
I know she’s not very popular but I do feel a bit sorry for her, she clearly has a lot of issues with body image, as well as bankruptcy on the horizon, legal battles with her exes, her exes cheating on her, and the recent coke scandal. Also she pursues younger men, I think she’s obsessed with youth and isn’t coping with aging.
Under no circumstances do I condone drink driving but I think she has a lot of personal demons she needs to address.
