What Price fame?

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

CATCH me on Stu­dio 66 TV tonight from 10pm on Sky chan­nel 912 and from mid­night on Free­view chan­nel 185. I have been work­ing ex­tra hard in the gym re­cently, as I fly out to my villa in Marbella next week – so make sure you tune in to see what I get up to! WHAT has hap­pened to David Beck­ham is ab­so­lutely out of or­der!

He has been tarred with such a bad brush be­cause of the mes­sages that have been leaked – but what peo­ple need to re­mem­ber is that they have all been taken com­pletely out of con­text and have prob­a­bly been edited to make him sound even worse.

I mean, who hasn’t had a whinge and a moan to their friends and fam­ily when they’ve been dis­ap­pointed or had a bad day?

Those mes­sages weren’t meant to be seen by the pub­lic – he’s only hu­man at the end of the day.

Becks has done a lot for char­ity over the years and, if you ask me, he re­ally does de­serve to be knighted.

Com­pared to Andy Mur­ray, Beck­ham has given so much more back to peo­ple and done a lot of work for char­ity and the sport dur­ing his ca­reer.

While the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion isn’t ideal for him, I don’t think it will harm him too much in the long run – the Beck­ham brand is far too strong for that! STRONG BRAND: The Beck­hams KATIE Price cashed in on the story about her and Si­mon Cow­ell from last week’s pa­pers by giv­ing a big tell-all in­ter­view.

I don’t blame her – she’s taken con­trol of a bad sit­u­a­tion.

But what does an­noy me is why is she still not be­ing la­belled as a kiss-and-tell girl?

How many blokes has she gone to the pa­pers about over the years yet she still has this ti­tle of ‘ glam­our model’ or ‘busi­ness­woman’ – it’s ridicu­lous.

Back in the day I was la­belled the ‘kiss-and-tell girl’ and I hadn’t earned a penny from dish­ing the dirt about my love life.

When I was caught out with Dean Holdsworth I was a young girl un­der the im­pres­sion she was in a nor­mal re­la­tion­ship with a foot­baller.

Things were dif­fer­ent then – you couldn’t just check some­one’s whole life story on Google or Face­book, and I had no idea he was a mar­ried man.

I was fol­lowed by paps and when the story came out in the pa­pers I was bran­dished, and the stigma of that la­bel stuck with me for years.

So why, af­ter clearly prof­it­ing from yet an­other story, isn’t Katie get­ting the same treat­ment?!
