Big Brother’s Jade Goody Not Sari Enough

News is that Jade Goody has been “snubbed” by an Asian magazine.


Realising how the Star’s owners once published the top-shelf magazine Asian Babes, we wonder as to exact nature of Jade’s offer.

Was it made to the Star? Is it fit and proper that a non-Asian is barred from featuring in such a magazine? Is such a magazine in breach of good race relations, a divisive organ that threatens to unfurl the fabric of society as it unwraps the lovely Parminder?

Reading on we learn that Jade wanted to feature on the cover of

Britain’s top-selling Asian magazine Asiana.

The Star hears Jade tell Asiana reporter Gurmej Singh Pawar: “I can now tell my kids that Indian people are not Pakistanis.” Not for that matter are they Pakis, Fuckawallahs or Poppadoms. The education never ends.

And Jade wanted to appear on the magazine’s cover.

But it will not happen. Shihab Salim, editor-in-chief of Asiana, tells us: “The option of a photoshoot with her in a sari was flatly rejected.

“It would have been in poor taste…We support Shilpa – and so do our readers.”

Which leaves one other option: will Asiana feature Jade’s fellow Big Brother bully Danielle Lloyd in a sari?

Looking at the Star’s daily front-page shot of Danielle in a bikini, and hearing that a cold snap is due, will the magazine take pity and put some clothes on her?
