Jade Goody married Jack Tweed this morning in Essex, England. Her publicist said it was a ceremony filled with tears, smiles and laughter. I wonder if it was a ceremony filled with booze, because I would’ve needed plenty of the hard stuff to get through it.
You may or may not be familiar with the tale of Jade Goody. For those of you that aren’t, let me just bust out the story for you really quick. So….27-year-old Jade became an overnight reality star in the UK when she was on Big Brother in 2002. After she left BB, she got her own reality show and also put out a line of products and shit. In 2007, she starred in Celebrity Big Brother with her boyfriend Jack Tweedy. The caca hit the ceiling fan when Jade made some racist remarks towards housemate Shilpa Shetty. Jade later apologized and said she was disgusted with herself. A year later, Jade went on the Indian version of Big Brother called Bigg Boss. Two days into shooting, Jade learned she had Cervical Cancer while on the phone with her doctors. The whole thing was on camera, but it never aired. Jade immediately quit the show and flew back home for treatment. Earlier this month, Jade’s publicist said her cancer had spread and doctors told her she only had a few weeks to a few months to live. And here we are now….
Jade decided that she wanted to get married right away and also document the last days of her life on a reality TV show. She also sold the rights to their wedding photos to OK! Magazine of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Jade said she made that decision because she needs to make as much money as possible for her two young sons before she goes away. It might not make sense to everyone, but it makes sense to me. This is Jade’s job. This is how she makes money. And instead of letting the sads completely take over, she’s doing what she’s got to do for her kid’s futures.
Here’s some pictures of Jade outside her home yesterday getting ready for the big day with her bridesmaids.
