Exactly, if she was so shocked and upset by them saying on the radio that he'd f***ed her she would of got a bloody good lawyer, but the trollop goes and gets someone to handle her public affairs to put a bit of spin on it for her.

How long till shes on a reality tv show? Wont be so mad at them then.

Ha ha i love this quote...

"She was on a European tour with the burlesque dance group - the Satanic Sluts - but cut short the trip following the public humiliation."

Work warning about link above, shows the girl in her burlesque stuff. I'm surprised how upset/stunned she was with Brands comments, you should see all the videos of her on youtube ! Looks like shes loving all the publicity shes getting at the mo

Deep inside, she's probably over the moon that this is happening.

Come on, she's said to be an "aspiring model", so any publicity she can get is going to help her cause no-end.

The most likely reason for her cancelling her tour (with her group of Satanic burlesque style dance troup) is because she has been told that she is going to be wanted by TV shows and papers alike.

Interviews will follow next, early morning shows like the Wright Stuff and Richard and Judy will all pay for her "story".

Then she'll be added to Z-list celebrity reality shows like that Jungle malarky and then this time next year, nobody will remember her.

I feel sorry for her, in the sense that she was stupid enough to sleep with Brand in the first place. Not exactly a fact you'd want to be made public.

I actually LOL'd at that :lol:

Its all rubbish, now the moaners have got their way on this how long before Frankie Boyle is forced off Mock The Week, Simon Amstel off Buzzcocks etc etc Its bad enough having to pay the tv tax as it is if anytime anything funny happens the guys get the sack.

One other thing.....surprised no-one complained about Brands on air apology either singing he doesn't like to upset anyone be they 'yellow, black or white'

urgh! she looks like Marilyn Manson.

Plus with Andrew Sachs having his grandaughters name ruined by the announcment that Russel Brand gave her one, what was outside his house all day yesterday? A flock of camera crews. He classes himself as a "performer" so surely he's welcomed this.

Looking at his grandaughter and reading about what she gets up to im sure its no suprise to him that she puts it about a bit!

I'm still laughing at the way the english seem to jump on the bandwagon, as others have said they did the same with Princess Di after she died.

2 people complained originally, now theres been 30,000 complaints from people with nothing better to do. If Ross wasnt paid a fortune and also wasnt cocky then i doubt most people would have been bothered.

Now its a whole argument about 'common decency' etc and how they've gone too far. Jesus, imagine if Howard Stern had a show on tv here ! There would be uproar ! Hopefully this will all die down soon and we'll have some proper news after the moaners have put their sandles away ;)

I hope none of you like comedy or anything. Notice they're complaining about a REPEAT. i.e - they didn't realise they could get anyone they like sacked before.

Well it seems lots of people dont like Jonathan Ross/R.Brand so even if they insulted Osama Bin Laden they would be up in arms about it.

I find it funny that theyre moaning about a joke about Andrew Sachs but dont seem that fussed by a rude comment about our leader the queen ! So joke about A.Sachs - okay, queen joke - fine ?!

I mean now after this huge argument people will probably moan about any jokes which offend them, others will jump on the bandwagon 2 weeks later despite not even hearing it and they'll demand someone else to be sacked/suspended.

Ridiculous

I'd think that a distinction can be made between making disparaging comments about public figures whilst on air (albeit after 9PM) and leaving obscene phone messages for them. The former is just about fair game whilst the latter is definitely crossing the line into harassment.

That said, I do think that Frankie Boyle's humour can be very crude at times and he'd better watch out if he wants to continue working on radio and TV.

Even when said phone message target was supposed to do an interview but decided he couldn't be bothered?

And that last paragraph may be one of the saddest things I've heard. Sachs for instance would do well to remember that risks advance the art, even if they don't come off. Fawlty towers was a huge risk for a start.
