Jade Goody’s Last Party

JADE Goody celebrity cancer: Jade performs a Marilyn Monroe tribute.


After Jade’s last interview, Jade’s last wedding, Jade’s last dress, Jade’s last fight, Jade’s last slice of toast and Jade’s last Christening, we have:

DYING Jade Goody is celebrating what is feared will be her last weekend with a big “farewell party.”

Visitors flocked to her bedside yesterday and many more will be back today and tomorrow.


Sources say terminally-ill Jade is desperate for her friends and relations to remain upbeat and cheerful even though time is running out for her.

One pal said: “Jade may be dying but she’s made it clear she wants her time to be full of laughter and friendly faces – not tears and sadness.

“She wants to feel like she’s at a farewell party, surrounded by loved ones. She’s just happy to be home again, with her friends and family around her, it’s all she wanted.”

Pass the jelly.

Daily Mirror: “So very human, Jade Goody, By Fiona Phillips”

Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of chatting to Jade Goody about many of her exploits.

I say a pleasure, because it always was. There’s never any artifice with Jade – no pretence, no airs and graces, just a very human human being who wanted the best for her boys.

Jade is a human being. Fact.

Her tragic situation, and her family’s, was summed up by mum Jackiey as Jade arrived home from hospital for her final days: “It’s beautiful that she’s back. It’s just so lovely to have her home and the boys will be over the moon when they come back from school.”

And when she’s not there when they come home from school? They’ll know, as they said at Jade’s wedding, that they had “the best mum in the world”.

Glasgow Daily Record: “Shilpa Shetty set to fly in to comfort Celebrity Big Brother rival Jade Goody”

BOLLYWOOD star Shilpa Shetty is jetting to Britain next week to see Jade Goody before she dies.

Hey, get in line behind Jordan, Amy Winehouse, The Beckhams and Michael Jackson.

Daily Mail: “Prince William has shown there CAN be dignity in grieving, By Amanda Platell”

Princess Diana and Jade Goody. Compare and contrast. Those little princes. Paul Burrell and Clifford. Seatbelt cancer. It’s uncanny:

Launching the charity’s Mother’s Day campaign, he said: ‘I still feel the emptiness on such a day. “Never being able to say the word “Mummy” again in your life sounds like a small thing. However, for many, including me, it’s now really just a word – hollow and evoking only memories.”

How beautifully moving his words were. And how restrained, too, especially when compared to the mawkish outpouring of grief in parts of the nation as it sits transfixed over the approaching death of reality TV star Jade Goody.

Nothing mawkish abour Diana’s death, our Princess of Hearts.

On Thursday night we were treated to a two-hour TV show on Jade’s wedding, in which one of her young sons was shown crying hysterically after breaking down while trying to read a poem.

Elton John lyrics?

What’s truly upsetting is that any young child’s understandable grief should have been so cynically exploited by TV bosses in the name of ‘entertainment’.

Jade may be happy to have every aspect of her life and death filmed by the TV cameras, but her sons should be entitled to their privacy.

Eyes down for Tabloid Bingo!

So, too, should Julie Myerson’s children.

Irish Independent: “The troubled teen who found that his mother’s professional ambitions outranked any loyalty she had towards him”

Myerson is no Jade Goody, yet there’s a Jade effect in her brand of reality writing. Jade, bless her, wins the honesty stakes.
