My heart goes out to Rio
THE news that Rio Ferdinand’s wife had lost her battle with cancer was devastating.
Rebecca Ellison was just 34 years old. It really shows that we are all vulnerable, regardless of our family’s wealth.
No-one’s invincible and it’s a tragedy that is affecting thousands of families every day in Britain.
I don’t know Rio well, but I met him a few times back in the day.
As so often with celebrities, BLOODY hell, is it 2003 again? Because it looks like Jodie Marsh and Katie Price are at WAR!
Last week, Jodie slagged off Katie in an interview – despite them ending their feud YEARS ago.
She told magazine: “I don’t care about Katie Price! She’s the one who’s famous for having loads of different kids with different dads.”
And of course Katie kicked off! She wrote Jodie an open letter, calling her “vile” and accusing her of “shagging my leftovers”.
She even tweeted a picture of her paying Jodie for a LAP DANCE from back when she worked as a stripper… Oh, dear!
I’m afraid I’m with Katie on this one. So what if she’s got different kids by different dads? Lots of women do.
I respect the work Jodie has done for victims of bullying, but that doesn’t make her better than Katie.
She needs to stop judging people. Live and let live. you sometimes feel like you know them because they’re so familiar.
He always struck me as a good guy. I feel for him right now.
My mother died of cancer last year, so I know how difficult it is.
It’s coming up to the one-year anniversary of her death, so I’ve been thinking a lot about the disease.
I remember when my mum first went on chemotherapy, it worked. But after a while, it TRAGEDY: Ferdinand and wife Rebecca was less effective. That treatment takes everything from you – it’s like bleach through your veins.
There’s got to be another way.
Coincidentally, last week Sheridan Smith appeared in TV drama The C Word, about a journalist who suffered from cancer.
It was based on the real-life, heartbreaking story of Lisa Lynch, who passed away in 2013.
Hopefully, the programme will raise awareness of breast cancer among young women.
I heard one of my friends say, ‘After you’ve wiped the tears away, you’ll want to go and get checked.’
I think that’s a wonderful and inspiring message. I’M sick and tired of this election… I can’t wait for it to be over! Mainly, I’m just sick of all the bloody hypocrisy. Russell Brand has previously told people NOT to vote… and now he tells them to vote Labour!
It begs the question: Why would anyone listen to him? The fact Ed Miliband has got involved with him shows the Labour leader is DESPERATE.
I’ve always voted Conservative, but I’m not going to this year. I’m supporting UKIP.
Nevertheless, I still think the Tories will win. The British public doesn’t like change, and David Cameron is the sensible option. But I reckon Nigel Farage
will step down after Thursday. He’s done a great job, but he’s a bit of an old fart.
UKIP need someone who will appeal to a younger generation of voters.
It all happens tomorrow – so read next week’s column for my election debrief!
