There are huge amounts of people who do not question things. That is how spin doctors work, why propaganda works and how people like Tony Blair get elected. Look at the way that some newspapers tell their readership what they need to be outraged at, and how quickly that has an impact.

The flip side are the equally closed minded who believe that every conspiracy theory is a fact.

As people, we are used to stories having good vs evil, with good triumphing. Therefore, everything is seen within those black and white, narrow constraints. Whereas, the truth is, that all things are shades of grey and often there is no one cause, but very many, no blameless vs guilty.

That was a little deep, huh?

I feel sad that people fall for it, but then think, "if it brings a little joy into their lives" but then I remember that their hard earned cash is going towards another sports car, or that they will never be able to afford the holidays that he doesn't even pay for, or that their husbands can't take their kids on a "DOTY DAY OUT" because the poor sod has to pay, to queue, to deal with the realities and I get grumpy again.

TL:dr, right?
thought provoking I am genuinely interested in human psychology... but then I get really pissed off when I come across non-entities that are feeding off even nonner-entities... I just feel there is an injustice in making a living, and a very wealthy one at that, for whoring out every aspect of your life.... it's weird... and I should really learn to take it more with a pinch of salt

slightly OT, but I note that the Judge who allowed KP's case to go to trial, is the same one who recently dished out a suspended sentance to a certain person who was blashpeming against a couple who lost their child whilst they were dining out at a mexican eatery

Great post artless, I don't see how any joy can be gained from such a grotesque pantomime.

I feel exactly the same way to. I know this is a stereotype but I am imagine the fans of PA to be exactly like the facebook nutter you described. There is something about someone who is not exactly intelligent or talented making a living from selling every aspect of their lives, their is something about that i really don't like. I feel like an mail reader yelling this is an outrage and something very unimportant. I must admit z listers and this forum are like my escapism, its just a little world I like to go into where I can laugh and roll my eyes and forget all the normal crap I have to deal with. I try my best to keep as objective and removed as I can, but there is something very knee jerk at this level of barrel scraping.

I echo everything you say I feel there is something quite sinister about manipulating people's minds into believing a 'reality', just as a means to make money....

am a great believer in 'what goes around comes around'... so let them get on with it I suppose....

that Emily needs a bloody good haircut, she has a lovely face and I think would be stunning if a decent hairdresser got hold of her....

I suffer from seeing him on tv, I can;t abide the adverts for his silly show, The man makes money out of his kids by crying over them, and then sinks low enough to make money out of the death of his brother. I blame Katie Price for marrying him and giving this boring idiot tv space.

Mmmmm...Speaking of manipulating people's minds...seems to have gone a bit off topic this thread. Swear some here are on the payroll to post anti-PA posts.
I wish I was...would have made myself a fortune!

Be great if I could get both sides to pay me...getting paid for a hobby would be the ultimate win!

From the bits I've seen in ads ..they appear to have no spark.. Peter is a touchy feely kind of bloke ( which isnt a critacism) and he wouldn't be able to stop himself ..camera there or not


Jeez if he was all over her and touchy feely, it would be a different story!!!!

Yes it will be interesting to observe the family dynamic. I think I spotted her Dad with her at the concert in last night's episode and her mother and brother featured in the last series so I assume they're happy. I think people miss the drama and arguments from the Katie/Peter days but as I think Cyril's pointed out Pete's shows are less fly-on-the-wall and more crafted so I don't think we'll be seeing Pete and Emily ripping pieces out of each other. It's a different relationship.

I think he was far more tactile with her before they became an item. I remember him grabbing her after their 'wedding ceremony' in the Zanzibar episode and saying something like 'come on then love shall we go and consumate the marriage' which she seemed quite happy to go along with. Clearly a joke as her parents were present but he made it very clear he thought she was a 'hottie'.

It will be interesting to see what happens long term but I think the fact she's being included within the 'storyline' suggests they're serious about each other. Didn't the episode summaries say something about Pete and Emily taking their relationship to the next level - so watch this space! (or I should add perhaps not in the case of most posters on the thread)


Tbh it looks cosy, family orientated, normal. If he was all over her, everybody would say oh look its fake, he is doing that for the cameras, he can't win, no matter what he does

I had gone in the wrong thread, thought I was in the 'Music on PA's show' thread, so mistakenly thought it had been turned into a PA free-for-all
Still, if the cap fits....

True. And a gold watch apiece for long service.

She's suing for breach of trust ... basically breach of contract comes into it with CP. Its not just about the affair, but thats all they can print because its in the public doimain. If it goes to court you might hear more but then again you might not.
Maybe Katie should start looking more to Neville Hendricks then You never do mention Neville Cyril, you must know him as you appear to know everyone else involved, Neville lied to Kerry Katona in order for her to turn against Claire Powell, did he not? he was also quite happy to get his baldy head head in front of the cameras in Kerrys show

I think they complement each other well and I think there's been plenty of tender moments but they keep things discreet on screen. They were bound to be subdued at the time the last episode was filmed as it was near to Andrew's death but both described how the experience has made them even closer. It's pointless trying to argue with posters who never watch the shows and base their opinions on their dislike of him. Pete and Emily don't need to prove anything to anyone so they'll no doubt continue in their own time and own way and good luck to them!

Nev lied to Katona to turn her against CP ? Ive never heard that one before, as far as I saw Katona left at the same time as NP, NP left because she wouldnt lie for them to keep her job and seeing as Katona stated her reason for leaving was that her integrity was being compromised, you could assume it was for the same reasons as NP, especially as seeing that as soon as Katona left, a media smear campaign started up against her, until of course max clifford stepped in and worked out a deal where "hey presto" Katona never talked about Can again and CP dropped Katonas debts with Can
So why would CP pay her off for a lie...

"Meanwhile, between 2010 and 2011 Price complained to the Press Complaints Commission about 17 Daily Star articles, "which contained appalling and false allegations about her"

"The complaint was settled , with the Daily Star admitting the allegations in the articles were false"

"Of the 17, 11 articles were written by the same Daily Star journalist. She has since taken a job at CAN Associates."

"Price also claims that model Nicola Mclean, at the time represented by CAN, had tweeted suggesting that Princess had been deliberately burnt to gain publicity."
What ever the rights or wrongs of this cc are, that one quote from mclean justifies KP action against these people !!!!
