Crossing the line



I have to confess I have become an avid viewer of Celebrity Big Brother.

I just cannot help myself.

I just love watching the people I have either admired or loathed from the celebrity world and trying to work out if they are like their celebrity persona. Its an armchair psychoanalyst’s dream

This season as been completely addictive, it has simply for no better term been “car crash tv”. It’s been explosive from the get go and I am honestly glad there is no live feed as my kids may have starved.

I truly don’t know what to make of it.

Of course I had previous perceptions of the housemates but to be truthful I have been surprised by them all.

From the kicking out of the first two to the faked walk out I am loving it.

I know and understand how people get so worked up over the programme and I know my poor husband is tired of my Katie Hopkins rants.

Can I just state here that I honestly believe Katie Hopkins is playing the long game. This is a woman who until she started slagging off people was not really well known. Her notoriety is based on her vicious tongue. If she turned nice she wouldn’t have a career. Two days outside of the big brother house nice Katie Hopkins would be yesterday’s news. No this lady is going to come out and call us all fools for falling for her nice act and then start bad mouthing her housemates off.

Anyway I digress this post wasn’t about KH it was about something that has shocked me more.

Last week I was on Twitter trying to tweet support for Nadia just before she was evicted when I came across some tweets which made me sick to my stomach.

Now I want to also state here that I am a great believer in the freedom of speech and I do love that Twitter allows you to tag celebrities, sports stars, musicians etc giving people a voice to those normally out of reach.

But I want to ask “when is too much, simply too much.”

Last night I was appalled to read tweets which said

“I wish Perez and Nadia would drink bleach and die”

“Let Perez win and while he is the last in the house blow the f**ker up”

“Hope Nadia gets an incurable disease and dies”

Seriously why

Why would you say such things.

As a mom whose daughter died from an incurable disease the last one really made me rage.

Am I alone in being appalled at this?

I’m all for telling a footballer he played crap.

Or a politician he is full of bull but come on wishing someone had died.

Personally I think the line is truly crossed.

What do you think?

I am a secret

Okay here goes, i confess I’m a secret Speidi fan. For the first time ever I have actually found myself addicted to Celebrity Big Brother ( oh the shame).

Now I know Speidi are the couple everyone loves to hate but I am so fascinated by them.

Maybe its because they are doing what I have secretly wanted to do.

Have you ever found yourself in a group not of your choosing and sat there really wanting to say “please go away”.

But you don’t either through professionalism or politeness, you have simply played nice.

I know I have and it has left me frustrated inside as I can not stand falseness but at times I think its becoming the normal.

I mean take facebook for example, how many have people that follow them on there, even comment on a post but if there were to see you in the street would walk on by.

Also lets be honest about human nature, we all have an element of competition in us. Desire to win, be the best. I personally believe Speidi are the only housemates being honest about their desire to win.

Of course in the real world behaviour like Speidi wouldn’t be acceptable but lets be honest CBB isnt the real world and “its just a game”.

Maybe you all think that I’ve finally lost the plot and maybe you are actually right but at times I just get so fed up of playing nice to the falseness of life.

I would love a little of Spencer’s audacity, the courage to say what I really feel. Life sometimes feels a little like CBB like its just a game.
