She really did kind of define an insane type of media spotlight life all within herself. I can see her becoming an easy case study type thing for social studies or something in the same way that film noir is a really good easy media/film studies subject.
it's fascinating because, like most people on here i'd guess, i had no interest in her but was always hearing about her. at some point i heard of a BB contestant who was apparently really stupid. then she became the first BB contestant to make a million quid. then there was the racism thing, and the media suddenly made her out to be INCREDIBLY EVIL. then she got cancer and was a massive hero. how many times did you see the words 'brave' and 'jade' next to each other ? and this was without ever wanting hear about her.
what struck me was about 6 months ago when i was saw her name mentioned in an article and i realised she'd been dead for month and months. and i'd not heard her mentioned once since. i don't have any interest in her, but she died and that's shit for her kids, especially given the constant bad press about her husband.

Rather than something that's just there.
