I think you'll find that people who suffer with their nerves tend not to be able to eat when under extra stress. I'm sure you'll dispute that though.
I think you should follow your own advice about not getting all upset over P'Andre, since you choose to follow the guy's life so closely, all the time getting het up at every tiny thing he does.
Aren't you the poster who said KP has 60% of the equestrian market? Then I'll take all else you say with a big old pinch of salt.
Totally agree Fizgig.

'60% of the equestrian market'? Funny how Derby House dumped her and now she has to go out on her own with her ghastly pink rubbish. She certainly puts the 'Tack' in tack.

Another thing that irritates me about the daft fool is, when he has his kids parading about in front of the cameras not once do we ever hear them mention their Mum & I don't believe for a minute they don't, more a case of God forbid anyone hears them saying anything affectionate, positive about KP which subsequently suggests both kids have equal love for both their parents.
Oh they do occasionally, but usually only in a very contrived and leading way so the daft fool is provided with a reason to make some disingenuously pious remark to camera while looking suitable martyred.

Haha, tack in tack, she should use that as a soundbite, since she's soooooo honest.
Her other fan said it was 80% of the market.

I'm new here & haven't had time to read the full thread back but from what I have read I'm getting the feeling PA is a bit of a joke who would kill his own Granny for a bit of publicity?
I'm not an Andre fan but I do at times tune into his sickly reality show (morbid curiosity ) & I think he is beyond contempt in the way he used the death of his brother in order to get ratings, gain public sympathy etc
I watched episode 1 feeling slightly sickened by him but I nearly had to switch off when the poor girl who was terminally ill was used in my opinion as yet another opportunity to show the world what a wonderful man Andre is. I had no problem whatsoever with the young girl wanting to meet him, it was the way PA yet again turned it all round to him, yes he is grieving the loss of his brother but did he really have to stop half way through chatting to her just to show viewers how much he to is suffering? I'm quite sure he could have managed a 5 minute chat to the girl without "breaking down" which really I felt spoiled the young girl's last wish. My apologies for referring to her as the girl but I don't recall her name.
Maybe someone could enlighten me on this..........how many on average do these venues he's been playing at hold & maybe it's just me but I always get the feeling there's quite a lot of spare seats going begging?

Great post.
Andre is indeed an abomination in my eyes.

Crikey - over brands like Musto? I think not.

From the customer gallery on that site it seems to be bought mainly by orange chavs and young kids.

As I suspected.
I'm pretty sure on Thursday's ep I heard Junior say "Mum says....." but then it was muffled out.

He really is a sly weasel, what genuinely baffles me (after looking at his twitter feed) is how people don't see through the "aren't I just super human, the way I've survived all this s**t, where's my knighthood" act & see him for the prize pillock he really is

Episode 2

Since the loss of his brother Andrew, Peteís been struggling to cope. With a few dates left on his UK tour, the crew are up in Leeds. Hoping to cheer Pete up, Road Manager Carl organises a boys days out clay pigeon shooting, but the freezing conditions look set to scupper his plans.

Peteís up early getting the kids ready for school, and after the school-run, decides to visit his brotherís grave. Itís a sad moment and Andrew's death is still very raw for Pete.

Pete heads to Brighton for the last gig of the toughest tour of his life and itís a bitter-sweet end. The sell out tour has been a success, amidst a devastating time and tonight, Peteís family and friends turn up to the gig in support.

Pete and Emily head off to Malta, as Pete picks up an award for Best International Artist at the Malta Music Awards. Heís treated like royalty and is inspired to take his music to an international stage, where people appreciate him for his music and not just his celebrity status.

Back in the UK, Pete decides to redecorate Andrewís room as it holds too many sad memories for him, but indecisive as ever, he canít make a decision on a colour and calls on Princess to help him with the job. At the end of the day Pete breaks down in tears, overwhelmed by grief.

Episode 3

Another instalment of Peter Andre's hit series, My Life. The tour has finished and Pete spends his first weekend off relaxing at girlfriend Emily's family home in Somerset.

While Pete is still dealing with the loss of his brother he's starting to feel stronger and he's ready to make some big changes in his life. With his new found energy Ė Pete starts by picking up a paint brush and redecorating Andrew's old room and hits the studio to start work on some new music that has a fresh sound.

Peteís relationship with Emily goes to the next level and with Valentine's day approaching Pete plans a night Emily won't forget in a hurry.

Episode 4

Pete is just days away from his 40th birthday. Having been through a difficult few months following the death of his brother Andrew heís determined to use the milestone to help him to start moving forward.

Pete decides itís time to start getting those famous abs back in shape. But is hitting the gym, buying a new car and the new found desire for a tattoo - a case of moving forward or midlife crisis?

As always the kids are on hand to take Peteís mind off things and with Junior declaring that his mum, Peteís ex Katie Price is pregnant, Pete deals with the tough reality of being a single dad.

After a difficult visit to Andrews grave on the morning of his birthday Pete gets himself ready to enjoy a night out in London, and with his family around him he embraces his 40ís in style...but late that evening Andrewís absence becomes too much for Pete to bear.

Doesn't it occur to you that perhaps KP might not want anything to be heard coming from her children whilst in their father's care, so the production company cut it out, perhaps because of legalities?

But this is Andre isn't it?

Everything's his fault, even when it's not. Even handedness doesn't come into things where he's concerned.

They can, they just don't want to. You can tell because they can only try to make him look good by comparing him to other media whores.

It's a good job it's so funny how transparent he is, else it might be tragic, really. 30 years old and still pretending to be something that he is not, and that he is not even very comfortable with.

Thanks for this.

As for painting a complete room, I doubt it. He will be filmed faffing around and painting a small area, but that will be it.

I remember the shows where he was trying to move a pool table, or moving the red couch that Katona gave him, not to mention when Kate and he were moving house. Everyone donkeys around him, he does his "Im a hopeless fop" role and does absolutely nothing. Never likes to get those hands dirty

Even Claire had to turn up at his house and pack his suitcases to go on holiday, whilst he was taking girls out in his soft-top car. She was muttering that it was as welll she wasnt charging him by the hour like a lawyer.When he got a puncture, Nicola from CAN had to come and sort it out for him.

On episode one, he spills coffee on the floor, bends to wipe it and then decided to shout "Gloria". Obviously the housekeeper is required as he cant clean up what he spills.

I see where your going with this and I do feel your pain so instead of the pinch of salt why not just press the ignore button

Yes I am quite capable of having thoughts occur to me thanks.
I would agree this may be the case but on more than one occasion in previous series I have heard KP's name being mentioned by the children when it's not been altogether complimentary, so therefore it seems to me anything said to make KP look not too bad is edited out, just my opinion..........

Just to reiterate, KP does get mentioned by the kids but never in a natural way - ie. from what I've seen, it's always edited in a way that allows DOTY to make some point or other or have a little dig. As I said, disingenuousness at its best. Or worst, whichever you prefer. Bugger all to do with legalities. There would be no on-screen mention whatsoever of her if it was that.

Have noticed this A LOT. He's bone idle. I get the feeling that being the youngest of a large family, everyone has done everything for him.

This made me laugh especially him yelping for poor Gloria when there was a dribble of coffee needing cleaned up.
You could maybe excuse this kind of behaviour from a stroppy teenager but not from a grown man.
He really is a useless, lazy buffoon who'd like us all to believe he is hands on with everything, what is conveniently omitted from his shows is all the help he more than likely has from various people cleaning up after him.
On Thursday's show when they were all covered in muck & he laughed it off, all I could think was "Poor Gloria is going to have to clean all that" No wonder the woman never talks, she probably hasn't got the energy to do so!

The scum newspaper sells much more than OK ,Hello or most mags ..so I'd say for her that's a good deal.. Higher exposure than those mags
The scum sells to OVER 3.5m a day
OK sells approx 350k ...a week

Its about quality not quantity....


But I suppose it is Katie Price we are talking about.

Yes I agree, I was saying to another poster who suggested that it may be down to legalities that I would have considered that had I not heard the kids mention her for eg when prompted by Andre in order to have a sly dig at her etc
Oh yes a wonderful DOTY & a fine example he's setting his kids

Don't think I've explained myself too well, I was suggesting anything positive said about KP by the kids seemed to be conveniently edited out by PA's people & referring to a previous poster who said it could be legal reasons I disagreed as I've heard P & J mention their Mum on various occasions.

I thought for a fleeting moment that you'd turned DOTYFan and it was an attempt to pass him off as 10 years younger than he is to try and excuse his infantile behaviour.

Even the most devoted fan couldn't knock enough years off to account for that, Lexi.
