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?
I used wonder about that a bit too, because it seems so bizarre that he would willingly present himself like he does.... but then I remembered he's 40yr old Peter Andre not 6yr old Honey Boo Boo, and came to my senses.

If he has a problem with how he's portrayed on his own show, then surely he would change it, ask them to tone down that ridiculous narration for starters? It's that, mainly, that sets the teeth-grinding, ridicule-generating, eye-rolling tone.

I've said it before, if they got that guy, Dave Lamb, who narrates Come Dine With Me, he could turn it into comedy gold.

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.
Any company that put peters tv show above peters loss needs canning ... I know we all grieve differently ,but surely the people around him would put how he is above any show.. Schedule or not.. Not being funny but he had enough control to cancel concerts before his brothers sad passing and enough control to delay the tv show and enough control to re edit the show for it to be shown after Andrews death..

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.
Doesn't it just?
And if the grief is personal enough,it buys you a lovely shiny Lamborghini.

You've just reminded me that there was going to be a big stag holiday for his fortieth.

Wonder if it happened. If it did his publicist should be on notice to quit because it wasn't 'sold' to the highest bidder.

Poor wee Peteybabes missed out on that epic story.

Picture the scene DD.. 2 Vegas showgirls ..with large feathers on their heads .. Costumes just covering their modesty.. Draped over a shirtless oily chested Andre.. Stood with a drink in his hand and a cheesy grin. His mates sat around in the background so you can't see them but know they are there..

Does that help

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?
When they split, I was 100% Team Pete. I still think it's the best days work he ever did, getting out of such a toxic marriage. I seem to have missed something with her that others seemed to see. All the comments about seeing another side of her and what a great person she came across on IAC passed me by, I still saw the same poisonous troll she's always been in my eyes.

I'm not sure when my opinion started to change but I slowly started seeing another side of him and realising he wasn't the innocent he wanted us to think. As much as I can't stand her, I do think him and his team did everything they could to damage her name (not that it was that great to start with) and to score good guy points by making her out to be the bad guy at all time.

Maybe I just started to realise that he is as manipulative and attention seeking as her. He's just more sly and underhand about it whereas she's just in your face. His obsessive neediness started to grate as well and the whole bestdadintheworldevahwholoveshiskidsmorethananyoneelsecouldpossiblydo got very tired very quickly.

He's the gift that keeps on giving imo. He's a real life, all singing, all dancing, all kids loving David Brent. The cheesiest twonk in zelebdom

This post is like someone read my mind.

Absolutely a million per cent correct IMO.
