Jade Goody: British reality star nearing the end

Jade Goody, who became infamous in the UK after her appearances on the British Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother, is nearing the end of her fight against cervical cancer, People magazine reported today. The 27-year-old wife and mother of two is in “critical” condition, according to her spokesperson, Max Clifford. While Goody was once best known for making racially charged comments to an Indian actress in the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2007, recently she’s grown in public esteem, having used her terminal illness to raise awareness about cervical cancer. Clifford reported that a priest visited the Goody home in Essex on Sunday, adding that “it’s just a matter of when.”
