Heartbreaking! Dying Jade Goody Baptized

| Filed under: AnglophiliaJade Goody


The sad and of the now saga of Jade Goody continues, thankfully.

Every day for the British reality TV star is a cherished one as she is dying publicly, documenting and profiting off her life, as she has for the last 5+ years.

Goody, whose cancer is terminal and has spread to her brain, was baptized in her London hospital on Saturday, along with her two young sons.

Jade had hoped to be good enough to do it at a church but was feeling too ill and the christening had to take place at the hospital chapel.

Her publicist said the "very pale and fragile" Goody was in a wheelchair and assisted by nurses during the service at London's Royal Marsden Hospital.

The ceremony is the last thing the reality TV star will do in the public eye, says her rep.

Goody's husband, Jack Tweed, and her mother, Jackiey Budden, were also present at the ceremony along with other members of her family.

Her publicist says:

"It was in my mind that she was saying a final goodbye to some people. Jade was obviously very happy with the whole thing; Jeff was there on one side, Jack was there on the other side, and it was a very short and emotional service.

I think everybody knew just how important it was to Jade.

She finds it very hard to stay awake for more than a few minutes but she stayed awake for the 20 minutes of the service.

It was a very positive atmosphere, after each of the boys were christened everyone clapped and after Jade was christened everyone clapped again.

It was a very simple service. There were prayers and blessings and a few short readings."

Our thoughts go out to Jade and her family.

    Thats Sad. I really hope this si the last thing she does publicly. I feel for her, dying of cancer and all but it still seems like shes seeks fame and attention from the media. Thats not the way to go.

    This really is so sad :(

    Poor Jade. Its heartbreaking.

    Slacking today Perez?

    That sounds peaceful, she's lucky there's a lot worse ways to die.

    Re: brkadm20 – I agree.

  14. 14

    rember when everyone hated her? now she's dying she's some sort of maryt

  15. 15

    Re: brkadm20

    She has made it very clear that she wants as much publicity as possible, she wants to make as much money as she can for her two sons.

  16. 16

    I am enjoying the 'Coolio wat a foolio' board in the background very much. Would have been all the more impressive if they had taken the time to include the 'h' in what.

  17. 17

    …and the cameras will be rolling right until the last breath…may all that publicity and money serve her well

  18. 18

    It's sad she's dying, but I lost my father in December so I've already had to cope with one long and traumatic premature death in the last two months. Now I have no choice but to have hers foisted upon me, disrupting the careful equilibrium I had finally managed to build up. Every single damn day I have to cope with her mug on the front of the news stands

    Yes, she wants to raise money for her boys, but she has not given any thought to other people in the country who are trying to manage their own ways of dealing with death. It's an entirely selfish enterprise. (And isn't that a sign of the times - that a person's death is being described as an 'enterprise'?) Her entire public image has been based on what some people tried to tactfully describe as her 'earthy' persona, but what everyone with two brain cells to rub together knew to be her incomprehensible ignorance. This is just yet another example of her absolute ignorance shining through and its flames being fed by the unscrupulous wonder that is Max Clifford.

  19. 19

    who is she?
    ive never heard of her..

  20. 20

    Sad, she's so young.

  21. 21

    Blah blah blah — can't we go a day without "news" about her? And didn't she say that her last public thing was, in fact, her last public thing? I'm guessing there will be yet another public thing and another and another….this woman can't get enough of the spotlight….sucking up every last drop.
    And no, it's not for her kids….if it were for her kids she wouldn't have spent $2 million more on her wedding than she was paid for it. She's disgusting to prefer public "fame" rather than private time with her kids.

  22. 22

    Re: NextWeek – HAHAHAHA — I didn't notice it before — that's awesome — great sleuthing!

  23. Izlou says – reply to this


    she's such a famewhore! i dont even know why anyone writes about her. she's not famous or anything. maybe you should add a 11th element to ur book perez: get a terminal cancer and everyone will give a fuck.
    what about all those other ppl dying out there unfairly? what media harasses them? no one!

  24. 24

    Can't bring myself to care for some publicity whore that markets her own death.

  25. 25

    Shilpa Shetty has the LAST LAUGH!!! Jade Goody rot in hell you tactless slag!

  26. 26

    Ugh - heartbreaking. Lost our mom this way. She probably won't make it through the week. Once they can't stay awake for more than a few minutes, there are only a few days left … heartbreaking, horrendous, beyond sad. Our sincerest condolenses and prayers of best wishes and peace are with Jade, her family and all others affected by this tragic disease. So sorry …

  27. 27

    Re: AmeliaV – I'm sorry you lost your father, but, don't you find your response absolutely and completely egocentric?! The manner in which she handles her death should consider you, a total stranger?! This is for her boys; they are her concern, and bravo to her for that. We lost our mom to this last year, as well; I was there; it's heart-wrenching and horrific. And, I would NEVER judge how anyone handles such a dreaded situation - certainly not a stranger, and for God's sake, not in relation to my needs and situation. Leave her alone, and do your own grieving as you feel you need. I'm sure her family will do the same, as they should.

  28. 28

    Just ’cause you're dying doesn't mean it's somehow a good thing to whore yourself out in every possible way until the very last breath just to raise $$ for your brats. This is beyond pathetic.

  29. 29

    She's lucky she's getting baptized before she dies, not everyone gets that chance. And so what if she's being a famewhore, she's dying! Let her do what she wants so long she's not hurting others.

  30. 30

    Who gives a fuck? She's a racist homophobic bully and we're all better off without her, as are her kids.

  31. 31

    Its sad she has cancer and will be dead soon and her sons will lose their mother, but I really don't see the fascination with her! I have nothing against her, but why does Perez post so many bulletins on her and her condition. I'm not a real big reality show watcher but wasn't the show she was on in the UK? Whats so special about her?

  32. 32

    Re: huntersc – Not that she was a good roll model to them in the first place….how embarrassing for them to grow up an learn what kind of a human being their mother was…

  33. 33

    Patrick Swayze is dying of pancreatic cancer and has exhibited an enormous degree of dignity and decorum in his final days. While my sympathy goes out to Jade Goody and her family, it does seem she’s done one too many “swan songs”.

  34. 34

    This is so sad. God bless Jade

  35. 35

    aww jade :(

  36. 36

    Enough on this chick already! NEXT….

  37. 37

    This woman's life is a reality show in every aspect. Including her death. Very few has had their life documented as much as her.

  38. 38

    Re: DoctorPS – I think your judgement of who is the egocentric one in this circumstance is rather naively misapplied…

    Re: AmeliaV – I'm so sorry for your loss, I had never viewed her public death in that way before this must be so hard for anyone who recently lost someone to watch another person say there goodbyes

    my thoughts are with you =) x

    F*ck this girl. she was a racist bitch on big brother

  44. 44

    Nice buzzkill Saturday.

  45. cait says – reply to this


    Ugh, cancer SUCKS so bad. My mother in law died of ovarian cancer in October 2007. This story brings back painful memories for me…I can only imagine what her family is going through :(

  46. 46

    Re: AmeliaV
    She didnt make you click on this and write comments on it, if you dont wanna know about it, just dont read it, don't look at the newspapers on the shelves with her face on it.
    She's famous and she's dying and plenty of ppl care about her thats why her "mug" is on all the newspapers, she's a famous person and always has been, whether it be for her ignorance or not, people are interested in her . If you dont wanna see it, scroll down the page and look at something else.

  47. 47

    Re: AmeliaV – Well Amelia, if you have problems coping with death, it's YOUR PROBLEM, not hers. Do not look at the newspapers or read any story regarding her. She can't stop LIVING the rest of her life to your standard. I really think you are a very selfish person, in everything you said there is not a word of compassion towards this young lady that is living her 2 small sons orphans. Your only worry is that your life will not be disturbed by this sad story.- You are a sad person.

  48. 48

    Re: Moonmoth – Karma will destroy you to pieces. Wait and see.

  49. 49

    Even if she actually goes away, you're still going to write another post about her because you have troll's remorse, Perez. That's why you suck: because you go all "I take it back! I TAKE IT BACK!!!" too easily.

  50. 50

    This is such a sad story, i hope she isn't suffering to much :(

  51. 51

    So sad. Those poor boys.

    Perez, how about saying sorry you said it was just a publicity stunt and this type of cancer wasn't even dangerous.

    I can not think of anything more gut-wrenchingly sad than knowing you are dying too young and leaving your children behind.

    I hope that Jade has made peace with this whole process and that her children will be cared for by someone in the family and in the way Jade would have done it herself.

  60. 60

    If u told me a couple of years ago id be sayin this i would say u are mad but i honestly really look up to jade goody =(

  61. 61

    Awww, I feel bad for her kids.

  62. 62

    There are three events in a life where people who live fairly soulless lives "find religion": Terminal Illness, Military Combat, and Prison. It's good that Jade Goody did what she thought would save her soul. Maybe her children can be put on a good path because of it, if anyone around them even cares to keep up with their newfound faith.

  63. 63

    I have never seen someone profit from selling the "events" that happen before his/her death before. I understand the children she leaves behind need to be supported after she is sadly gone, but it still upsets me a bit.
    Too sad……

  64. 64

    "Discovering" Jesus on your death bed doesn't guarantee her a ticket to heaven.

  65. 65

    Re: Izlou
    I KNOW seriously, I couldn't have said it better. a) she's not the only person in the world who gets cancer and b) WHY is she marketing off it?? I find it disgusting how she's whoring herself out even while she's dying.
    If she wanted to die peacefully she should have left out the whole media part. I don't see why she has to publicize everything that's happening to her to gain public sympathy.

  66. 66

    ok, yeah I fell bad for her but come on no one even knows who this british nobody is

  67. 67

    Its Bad Karma! She got cancer because she lived her life as mean person!

    I goggled her and found she was in the Celebrity Big Brother racism controversy of Celebrity Big Brother 2007. On the show she bullied another Indian celebrity Shilby Shetty and made racist comments about her race. Now she's on her death bed and wants to be baptized. I think shes going straight to hell. Sorry, but I don't think we need to be nice to her just because she's got cancer. A bitch is a bitch whether she's dead or alive.

  68. 68

    The poor girl :o ( I never was a fan of her.. infact, quite the opposite but I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. Now I've watched "Jade's progress" and I feel so much for her and her family. She is so wonderful to her wee boys and it's so sad to know this is happening to people all over the world and although we can't see that or them, at least Jade's program can let us know what it's like for everyone with this evil illness and we can feel more empathy for those and HELP others. Help ourselves by GETTING smear tests, STOP SMOKING, Stop the sunbeds..etc.. these all promote to cancer and no one realises it until something like this happens.
    Please people.. isn't it strange how this wasn't such a big issue like 100 years ago but it is now? that's because all the things we do in every day life promote these things. Be careful. I hope Jade can help people see how fragile life really is. It's not something to go "It'll never happen to me…" but you'll be surprised..

  69. 69

    Re: Who Cares I do duh
    That is DISGUSTING! Yes, okay, she made a mistake but so did a couple of other girls (they all said horrible things to Shilpa), but Jade got the brink of it because she's y'know, more famous.
    So why aren't they on their death beds too? huh?
    That's bloody ridiculous. You're so ignorant!
    Jade has done a wonderful thing for women all over the UK by promoting cervical smear tests and the numbers have gone up big time which is excellent news and they all did this because Jade showed how important it is to do. She's saving lives.
    Also, are you saying that those wonderful people out there who get horrible diseases and illnesses deserve it? is it karma to them? I hope you see my point. I wonder if "karma" will take it's toll on you for that comment.

    Re: electropop66
    Her publicity has helped other girls seek help.
    She can do this because she's famous. I'm sure other celebs would do the same. They just want to help and she's doing this so she can give all funds to her sons. She wants the best for them because she never got the chance when she was a kid. I think you'd all do the same.

  72. 72

    GOD bless you.

    Re: AmeliaV
    Chick im so sorry to hear about your loss *hugs*
    Im in the same boat as you,i saw my nan die infront of my eyes when i was 10,her cancer spread from her ovaries upwards,i saw everything she went through.It was very very traumatic for me,i was 10 but knew everything that was going on,i spent years on counselling & trying to get closure,i even my first tattoo dedicated to my nan.I finally thought i had closure but seeing Jade in the press has brought it all back,seeing a red blanket placed over my nan because she could haemorrage infront of us.Jade DOES NOT realise how she is affecting people,My friend has lost her cousin who she was very close with,she doesnt use any gossip website because everytime she hears about jade,she breaks down in tears.Does jade not consider this?In today's sunday papers,Someone have finally said 'JUST STOP' but they made it out like the pap's invited themselves,no she invited them.I dont find Jade 'Brave',She ignored 3 abnormal smear tests,I dont feel sorry for her,only her kids,all this whoring is enough.

  74. 74

    Re: AmeliaV – Actually Doctor PS was accurate iin his/her observation. Why are you making yourself the victim in how she deals with her death? You don't know her, nor she you. Sorry for your loss, but don't play the victim just because you're in pain over your father's death. You said you had no choice but to have her death foisted upon you. Um, you do have a choice. DON'T READ ABOUT IT. Problem solved.

  75. 75

    Terminal illness and impending death is undeniablly sad, especially for someone so young. But enough already. Such reverential coverage of a media whore's last days. It's strange how she's transformed from national joke to sainthood on her deathbed. I find her final days undignified and the media's obsession distasteful.

  76. 76

    A small note that her boys won't be orphaned - they still have their dad Jeff, who although he isn't the most attentive dad in the world, is still alive, has a career and I'm sure has family who can help out too - so the boys won't be totally alone in the world.

  77. 77

    jade must be a very brave woman.

    if i knew i were going to die in a few weeks (or maybe days), i'd be so scared!

    this is heartbreaking :(

    Is that bitch not dead yet!
    I am so sick of her, she makes me puke.
    What's next a state funeral for this low life?

    Re: allykisskiss – Hey Allykisskiss,

    I understand where you're coming from. Please, I don't mean to say that all people who are dying of a terminal illness are bad and deserve it. I may have been a bit harsh in wording the post. I just basically wanted to say that that we shouldn't go overboard with the "feeling sorry for" and make her out to be such a "Martyr" since she wasn't such a nice person anyway. Yeah, I know she did apologize to that contestant Shilpa after the BB show. But if we lived in a world where we kept saying "SORRY" to people after we treated them like shit and went to church to ask for reconciliation…it would be a world full of really really bad people. For example…CHRIS BROWN is saying sorry to RIHANNA after he beat her down.
    No I don't think I will get bad karma from writing my opinions about her being a horrible person because I'm only commenting on her actions which where true and covered on camera for all the world to see. And it was not only her…her mother and husband were also bullying and making racist comments to Shilpa. Birds of a feather flock together…they just don't seem to be a nice bunch of people. Her husband was angry when she apologized to Shilpa after the incident…what does that say? Hey, I'm not ignorant about Cancer either…I lost a family member to cancer a few years ago. 1 in 5 of us who write in this forum will die of cancer. That's a fact.

  83. 83

    Perez, before you laud her, check out her feelings about gay people! Also check out her racist treatment of Shilpa Shetty. In the words of jeremy clarkson, live on the BBC, she's a fat ugly racist pig
    Whay has changed to make her some sort of angel?
    We have lost a wonderful entertainer, wendy richards, to cancer recently, she did it quietly, jade employed max clifford, minimum £20,000pstg to grab as much money as possible
    Please concentrate on Wendy, Jade is worth much less
    She was really nasty to Bollywood star, Shilpa Shetty on celeb big brother, her attack on Shilpa was outrageously racist.
    On another reality show she acted the same way. Why are you holding this person up as some sort of "Saint", she isn't that and has never been.

  84. 84

    haha. this is soo stupid. funny how people get all spazed out before death and find religion.
