She got in the papers for 'slamming' the impersonator on BGT, and used the gospel choir who were to appear on it, for her 'wedding'.
To be fair, she was friends with Francine for years, and she DID use the gospel choir.
To some extent people like Lauren Pope and Rylan wanted to hang out with her, not the other way around. She's seen as a bit of legend to these type of people.
I don't dispute shes good at using the world of showbiz to keep her profile up,its probably quite smart - but in anyway, famous people do tend to hang out with each other, attend the same functions, so is it that unusual?
