just out of interest, why are we taking the piss out of someone who has suffered in an abusive relationship, and is now undergoing character assassination by media in a trial that’s about fraudulent activity of business associates not her private life?
just leaves a bit of bad taste to be honest 😕
is abusing women socially acceptable as long as there is some titillation for the masses and a chance to poke fun at a person who has a public persona?Posted 4 years agoti_pin_manMember
both in this thread and the one from yesterday, I read most of this as complimentary to her, flattering her. Clearly she is an attractive and succesful person and is in the public eye. The fact that she isnt whiter than white (no pun) and has a more human side is for me, even more appealing. I admire her more than I did. Huzzah!
none of us know really what either her or Saatchi are like other than what we have read and our opinions can only be based on this. Maybe he is a saint provoked by an evil woman and maybe he is a nasty piece of work. I suspect the truth lies between the two somewhere.

Personally, I took a dislike to her after seeing her in one of the early series of “Who Do You Think You Are” on the Beeb. Her disappointment, quivering upper lip and tears at being identified as a descendant of the less aristocratic Sephardi jewish sub-culture rather than Ashkenazi showed the insecure sleb snob she is. It’s no surprise her personal life has been one shaky relationship after another. She’s just not very nice. And she married an arsehole who, it appears, if we are to believe the tabs, isn’t very nice to her. Now it appears they were screwed by their PAs.
The whole thing stinks, but is only out-stinked by our morbid interest and desire to see peoples’ personal lives raked over in public.Posted 4 years ago
not really a sanctimonious high horse, just cant see the point in making light of wife beating? i suppose if it was done in an “it’s a knock out” stylee, with Stuart hall commentating whilst touching up young folk and charles saatchi wearing a comedy penguin outfit, it would be light entertainment for you grumPosted 4 years ago

I agree with that, but the videos are still funny in a childish kind of way – I don’t see how the two things are even connected TBH.

Can you point out where someone has done that please?Posted 4 years ago
and personally can’t stand the woman, just hate the “lets take joy in someone else misery, especially if they have a bit of money or a lifestyle you can be jealous of as it makes your dreary existence seem more palatable” kind of attitude that you English seem particularly good atPosted 4 years agozokesMember

Well, you seem to be trying exceptionally hard to find schadenfreude here, where there is none. Perhaps there is a more suitable thread for your self-righteousness?Posted 4 years ago
zokes- when something as corrupt and piss takingly viscous as a Taz is speaking from a moral standpoint you need to have a look at yourself sunshine, as grum so rightly points out…I’m usually a charlie uniform November tango of the highest order… the vids are quite funny, the whole joy at someone elses misfortune… well to be honest…that just shows you to be a petty small minded fkwit 😀Posted 4 years agoJunkyardMember
What tazzy said as for self righteous FFS a woman is being bullied in a court case by an aggressive ex partner who abused her and in public. He is continuing his harrasment and he is still [ and succeeding] trying to bully and humiliate her.Posted 4 years ago
Really if you wont mount a high horse or get sanctimonious about this you live in the gutter and you have the morals [ if any] of a sewer rat
the vids are quite funny, the whole joy at someone elses misfortune…
Again, can you show me some examples of this?
JY – bullying and abuse are bad and to be condemned, whoever it applies to. I don’t think anyone is questioning that are they? Does that mean we aren’t allowed to laugh at the funny videos made long before any of this came out?Posted 4 years ago
grum if you look back through the thread you will see that as well as the vids( not what I was commenting about) there are a series of comments about baking bad, her being coked of her tits etc…
and this kinda typifies itPosted 4 years ago
Let’s be honest here, if she didn’t have big tits she wouldn’t be famous and rich. So I couldn’t care less what happens to her now. You live by the tit, you die by the tit.
zokes..at no point did I link the two things I just mentioned taking the piss out of a woman who has been in an abusive relationship as some of the direct comments have done,was a bit off in my twisted opinion. you and grumpy seem to have put a link in where there was none at all or any mention of the vids in my post, you’ve done that all by your own little selves….clever childrenPosted 4 years ago
right, just for the honorable gentlemen Woppit… I blame religion! all this enjoying others misfortune, has a direct correlation with the christian superiority complex over the heathens… It’s not your fault, you are all mindless sheep that have been indoctrinated from birth to believe in god and country which gives you a sense of right for divine judgement…as you are english and christian…if you were all believers in reason and science…none of this would have happened…you’ve all made the baby jesus very sad…and it’s nearly his birthday!Posted 4 years ago
