She may notÂ the best role model for the growing generation of young girls, but Jordan aka Katie Price, sure knows how to stick up for her children.
Week after week Jordan puts up with negative criticisms over the way she steers her career, lives her life and picks her partners, but there is one thing that we can not dispute and that is her devotion to her children.
Just because she is a self made millionaire who built a careerÂ in topless modeling and reality TV, it is very naive to assume that millions in the bank can spare you heart ache after your child is tastefully verbally attacked.
Last week Jordan aired yet another reality TV show, but this time with a twist. The show did not revolve around her questionable pink daring outfits or her erratic love life, but the serious issues she and her disabled son, Harvey face everyday from being in the public eye. ‘Katie: Standing Up For Harvey’ was a personal documentary that shows us exactly what it is like to raise a child affected by disability.
The infamous model and business women was forced to make this documentary after the cruel TV comic Frankie Boyle made a shocking joke that her son – who suffers fromÂ restricted sight and severe autism – might try to ‘rape’ her.
Despite TV regulator Ofcom being inundated by complaints about that tasteless gag, Boyle – who made the disgusting remarks on Channel 4′s Tramadol Nights – has made no attempt to apologise for his vile and highly offensive comments.
“I can’t overstate the outrage and revulsion i felt when i heard this attack on my vulnerable, disabled son,” said Jordan last week. “Boyle’s disgusting suggestion slandered my innocent son and insulted every disabled person in Britain.”
While Jordan herself admits to her faults, you smile can not deny her dedication to Harvey and the rest of her little gang. No matter who the mother is or how she personally has acted in the past on and off camera, there is no excuse for ‘anyone’ to make an inappropriate ‘joke’ at the expense of a disabled person.
In this new style documentary, Jordan has given us a very real and moving glimpse of what it is like to live with and raise a disabled child – without painting herself as the victim. She also made it clear about how much joy Harvey brings to her life, and for displaying it to vividly, we applaud her.
