Jade’s Salon, Living TV

by | Sep 12, 2005 | All, Reviews

What to say if you liked it

The thick veil that shrouds the life of Jade Goody in so much mystery is lifted by those lovely LivingTV people.

What to say if you disliked it

We thought we’d like this for the sport of watching Jade fail, but she came across as a harmless nonentity so it was hard to build up any hatred and it just turned into one big bore

What was good about it?

• Jade’s boyfriend Ryan. How does she get them? First she had the cute Jeff. Now she’s got Ryan who is not only cute but mature, sensitive and not interested in self-publicity at all.

• A smattering of those Goodyisms we’ve come to love.

Describing the look she intended for her beauty salon, she said it would be “Moulin Rougey, modern, retro, tranquillic – or something like that.”

Reading a Sun report on her participation in The Weakest Link: “The woman who thought that East Angular is East Angular…”

When the car runs out of petrol: “Do I have to ring the RSCCA?”

What was bad about it?

• Jade’s non-stop, nerve-shattering chatter

• Everything about it was so dull, even The Weakest Link appearance. Other “highlights” included hunting for premises, getting eyebrows tattooed and laughing at the lies in the celebrity magazines.
