After making up with Shilpa Shetty on national television, terminally ill British reality TV star has complained about the partial treatment received by Shetty on the show,Celebrity Big Brother in her autobiographical book Jade:Catch A Falling Star.
"I got the impression the producers jumped through hoops for Shilpa Shetty.This was magnified in my mind because in the house she informed us of certain things.Looking back, she may have been winding us up, " sun.Co.Uk quoted Goody from book. In the book, Goody who has been diagnosed with incurable cervical cancer ,also claims that Shetty's win in the reality show might have been orchestrated while adding that the crowd booed at her when she emerged out of the house, victorious.
Goody quoted the message sent by her bodyguard who was present at the venue . “You OK, Jade? Standing here at the final. Shilpa’s won. The crowd are booing. But at home on TV everyone can only hear cheers.”, it reads. Goody sets the record straight about the allegations that she racially abused the Indian star on the show by saying that it happened in the spur of the moment while adding that she was not racist.
"Yes, I said those things , and they are nasty,I was carried away but I am not a racist... I should not have done that," says Goody while recalling the moment when she yelled at Shetty on camera saying," Shilpa Poppadom". The reality TV star who was a part of the show along with Jack Tweed whom she recently married also talks the after effects of the race row, which saw her voted out of the show.
Within a month Jade had been diagnosed with depression and was admitted to rehab centre 'The Priory'. “I was there under doctor’s orders. The nation hated me. My life was crumbling beneath me." says Goody.
Goody who reportedly only has a few more months to live also caused a stir when she announced that she might allow her death to be caught on tape and telecast, had sold the exclusive coverage rights of her wedding ceremony to a celebrity magazine for a million dollars.
