British reality star, Jade Goody, was in India filming the county’s version of “Big Brother” called “Bigg Boss” when she was told she has cervical cancer. With the cameras rolling, Jade was told over the phone by her doctor. She immediately ran out crying and announced to the other houseguests, “I have cancer.” Again, the cameras are still rolling. The station has no plans to air the scenes on television. Yeah, they say that now! The Sun reports that there’s rumors the footage will air in the UK. Why not just release it as a special DVD box set?
Jade has since left the reality show and is on her way back to England for treatment. Earlier this month, Jade had undergone a series of tests after she collapsed four times. She decided to go on “Bigg Boss” anyway, because she wanted to patch things up with Shilpa Shetty, the show’s host.
Jade and Shilpa did “Celebrity Big Brother UK” together a while back. It wasn’t peaches and cream. Jade was accused of calling Shilpa every racist name in the book. She later apologized. Shilpa went on to win the reality show. Shilpa issued this statement about Jade’s condition: “I was really sad when I heard the news. It’s a tough time for her and I hope she is able to cope with this pain.”
Jade’s rep also issued this statement: “It looks like her cancer is at an early stage but we will have to wait until she gets back to Britain and sees a specialist and has more tests.”
Maybe she should follow the way of Christina Applegate (see below) and start living macrobiotically. I still don’t know what that means, but I like the word. I’m just going to start telling people, “Oh, I live macrobiotically.” It sounds fancy.
And get better, Jade! Live macrobiotically!
