Oh yes, let's have lots of Ambassadoraging.

Maybe we'll also see him get this best international artist award that according to the Malta Music Awards went to someone called Gotye... which is similar to 'Andre'... apart from the 'g' and the 'o' and the 't' and the 'y'...


I think he should go to Cyprus and help them. He could be filmed at an ATM machine trying to make a withdrawal

To be fair his brothers death is something that has happened in his life, he can't just ignore it because he has cameras following him about. He's bound to be talking about it or people would think it is odd
Where has anyone suggested he should ignore it? Of course it's going to feature and it would be very strange if it didn't.

That point is how it features. What most people are eye-rolling at is the cynical way the show is promoted and how the narration constantly and deliberately (not to mention nauseatingly) sets out to milk every ounce of sympathy and pull at the heartstrings. Just like the last series where it sold each episode almost on a cliffhanger about a very ill man.

He should sell it to tabloids: My withdrawal hell. And then a photo of him kicking an ATM machine

Hope you get rewarded for these great ideas

Lets hope he does some research before he pens any thoughts on the Cypriot crisis.

And then re-release 'Insania' with a video of all that in the background.

That doesn't make you redundant, your reviewage is loved by many
Is Lexi trying to get out of reviewerage? Not a chance lady bwhahaha.

"suffering"? .. just in time for Easter.
All this suffering and caring for the lil children..I see your point. Michael Jackson's Jesus complex springs to mind. Not that Andre has it,he's just copying Michael Jackson

Really thought he was being respectful to the memory of his brother by keeping a low media profile on the subject, when infact, he was just keeping it all quiet and together to flog his new show with what a piece of ..........
Ive never ever seen any zeleb sell/use the tragedy of losing a family member like this before on an entertainment show, it really is off the scale of disgust that any loving brother or family would allow the memory of one of their own to be used in this way
We are all entitled to our own morality I guess. But the undignified way he's capitalised on his brothers illness than death is actually a little inhuman, IMO. But then that's his job I guess.

A very sensible argument scone, and one I've brought up ^.

But as it's Peter Andre he can't do anything right. If he wears his feelings on the outside, he's wrong. If he keeps them to himself, he's wrong. There's really no pleasing some people as far as PA goes.


That's never happened, though - he overshares everything for money! I have yet to meet a person who thinks PA keeps anything to himself...other than the glammamoduls over the back garden fence of course.

Why would anyone have cameras following them about during their most private times of grief if he had made a tasteful tribute to his brother, all about his brother then fine, but judging from the write up to his show its all about him and his suffering dragged out and used every where to keep the focus on him, he is nothing more than an emotion parasite who feeds off the sympathy of others to keep himself going

Not anyone - just the Abominable one.
It does appear that, as usual,the emphasis is on PA and the fact that HE has been affected so much more profoundly than anyone else.
I don't think that anyone actually expected him to just gloss over his brother's death (and nor should he), but surely one stand-alone segment about his brother would be more appropriate than cynically sandwiching PA's moments of grief into a series about sportscar shopping,theme-park plugging,envelope-opening attendances and (lest we forget) endless reminders that he is the bestest-daddy-in-the-whole-world-provided-that-your-idea-of-being-a-good-parent-is-to-shamelessly-sell-every-single moment-of-your-children's-lives-and-then-claim-that-it's-just-so-they-have-a-record-of-it-when-they-are-older.
Bleurgh.

I just wondered if we could perhaps broaden the theme of this thread and go back in time.

When KP and PA split up, I really felt sorry for Peteybabes and bought into all the crying on cue and was so sad to see him sobbing in his mother's arms.

At that point I doubt if Peteybabes could have done anything wrong and our hearts would have universally melted the moment he gazed sadly to camera.
Poor wee Peteybabes had been eaten up and spat out by the wicked woman from the west called Katie.

Then...............well it all fell apart for me after that.



I've always thought that KP was the mistress of self publicity and for that I must give her credit. As long as she was in the press and being discussed, I don't think KP ever cared whether anyone liked her or not. PA had lessons from the best in the business about being noticed and for a while he did very well.

For whatever reason being noticed wasn't enough for him and under Claire Powell's careful tutelage he decided that he would be noticed because he was a 'good guy'.

That was the turning point for me.

When did the rot set in for you?

I've never thought much of him.. But finally decided he wasn't the person he made out he was when they where in America in the bike shop and he kicked off on her cos she told him he was a nobody.. He was really aggressive and I thought ..umm the real Peter showed there.luckily for him he had someone there to stop him losing control (Nicola I think) and if I'm honest I will never know why his management allowed that to be shown.

Really??
Blimey DD, you are a far kinder and more generous person than I could ever hope to be.
At the VERY beginning - when they met in the jungle and the first series of K and P, I have to admit that I warmed somewhat towards BOTH of them.
She APPEARED to have slightly more to her than the footballer-shagging silicon-enhanced bimbo she was made out to be.
And he SEEMED to be slightly less slimy and revolting than he looked on the Mysterious Girl video (which was the sum total of my exposure to PA up until then).
I actually believed for quite a while that they were in love (with each other) and happy together.(Wasn't I a sucker?)
I think that the change in my opinion came about before they split up.
I kept noticing how much he enjoyed belittling her for her lack of intelligence (not that she didn't do the same to him) and I seem to remember him criticising her career(something about how "taking your top off isn't a job") whilst being more than happy to share in the proceeds of it.
I do think that the KP bad/PA whiter-than-white seeds were being sown long before the marriage ended, with his full knowledge,if not his active collusion and that he actually viewed the idea of being seen as the nice guy who became the innocent victim of the evil KP as a good career move.
But whatever,I can't help it,he just makes me

I really wonder how much control he has over what is going to go into these shows? Or what would happen if he said no to something, is he even able to - do other celebrities have such an intimate working relationship with agents/publicists?

More than enough I reckon.
Does anyone honestly think that if PA was actually physically capable of uttering the words "could you please turn the cameras off for a second,I would like some privacy" that the film crew would ignore him and carry on?
PLEASE

I agree Betty, personally I'd have preferred to see Pete taking more time to grieve and get himself back on track in privacy. But if ITV2 have the show scheduled, perhaps CAN have to deliver to a deadline. Or perhaps he wanted to get his remaining filming contract over with so that he can move on to other things. Just saying he might not have complete control over the matter. I think he's the kind of person who likes to honour his commitments and I'd agree with you that his management should be more protective of his wellbeing at times.

That isn't true AS.
The word is gullible but I've seen the error of my ways now.
Wish others would take the blinkers off too and enjoy ridiculing the Abomination that is Andre.

Its great fun laughing at the indefensible and laughing at the gullible and bewildered.

They work for HIM.
He's a grown man for gods sake not the bloody teaboy - if he wanted more time off he could easily have asked for the series to be postponed until HE was ready.

Could be worse though DD - at least you were strong enough to fight the irresistible urge to embrace the orange.

Especially seeing as they're "like family",

But hey, personal grief sells and there's only a certain window of opportunity afterwards to exploit it to the full.
