Shilpa Shetty Winner

A gobsmacked Shilpa Shetty (2007)You don't need Coxsoft Art to tell you that Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty won Celebrity Big Brother yesterday and managed to look ladylike and gobsmacked at the same time. So much for alleged racism in the UK. I told you it was culture clash: middle class lady v. modern feminist guttersnipes. Two interesting facts emerge: 1. the plebs who watch this rubbishy show and who vote for the contestants preferred an old-fashioned lady to modern feminists, whatever their colour, and 2. BBC News is confused about this result. The 1 o'clock TV News reported that India is pleased by the outcome, whereas the BBC News website reports a "muted response to Shetty in India" (CLICK). Make your mind up, BBC.

Joke of the week was that Shilpa has been signed up to make another 200 Bollywood movies - that should keep her busy til March!

200? I know they churn them out in Bollywood, but Shilpa is 31 now. She'll be old and grey before she works out this contract. (Maybe like granny in the Kumars!)
