“What’s a dimella?”

Thursday, January 11, 2007 by

One of the most surprising aspects of what has, up until now, been a largely dull Celebrity Big Brother has been the reinvention of Jade Goody.

The transformation from the character that we were presented with four years ago, to the one that we see today is quite remarkable. Now a bona-fide celebrity in her own right, Jade has become a mature, likeable person who has had to contend not only with all that the press has thrown at her over the years, but also with being confined in the house with her loud, argumentative mother. In a moment of exasperation in the diary room, Jade admitted that for a lot of the time she feels as though she has had to act more like a mother to Jackiey than a daughter.

Jackiey’s behaviour in the house has been strange to say the least. Most of the time she has seemed insensitive, and on occasions downright rude to some of the other housemates (especially in her battles with Shilpa) and it is easy to see why Jade finds herself becoming so frustrated. The other housemates all seemed to have little time for Jackiey as she was so hard to deal with. Nothing was ever straightforward with her, and just about everything seemed to turn into an argument for no good reason.

Hopefully now that her mother has been evicted from the house, Jade can stop worrying about what she might or might not do and come into her own a little more. Jade may not be the most knowledgeable in the world, but she is far from the “stupid” person that we had been led to believe she is by the papers – and she could well go on to triumph in this series.
