I actually don't think Rita said anything to deserve the type of vitriol this newish Sugababes singer gave her. All she said was she was pleased she pulled out of Eurovision when she did. It might be that someone had a word with her and suggested that two similarly voiced singers would cancel each other out and would be left with those ghastly twins that came second or the Show tunes Welsh singer.
Jade Ewen should have risen above it or said something other than the childish response she gave. To say someone has slept her way to the position she's in is completely wrong. Especially coming from someone that is normal very comfortable wearing very little herself. It comes off as spite and jealousy really. Hope someone gives her some sound advice.
Rita stated that she walked away from the auditions because she didn't want to do it. Nothing about anyone 'having a word' with her. If that's what happened, then what she said is even worse because she talked about the audition people and her agent being worried about her/trying to get in touch with her. Not nice if she was making that up.
Jade probably shouldn't have made the comment about Rita sleeping her way to the top. However, that doesn't alter the fact that Rita was wrong to say what she did. Perhaps one day she'll realise how fickle showbusiness is and how naive and stupid she was to criticise others for their career choices.
