Introducing Katie Price And Peter Andre

After a week in Ireland reading OK! Magazine, one would inevitably be curious about the phenomenon that is Katie and Peter. Over there, they call her Jordan which was her alter-ego when she was a "glamour model." A glamour model in England is like that of a girl that starts out as a "Page Three" girl and ends up with a career posing for Maxim, FHM, and the like. This leads to reality shows and a career as a writer. [Readers ponder this and think...Wait, did she just say writer?] Indeed we did and her autobiography was nominated for a fancy European Book Award. President Bill Clinton took the prize, but Katie Price's book broke sales records. WHAT! We shit you not. And why? Because dumn asses like us peruse the bookstore in the airport and think....Hmmmm, a seven hour flight, not anything too dark or dreary, no, no, no more "books" about Manhattan and blondes and blah, blah, blah. Wait, here's an autobiography by Katie Price that explains the whole sudden marriage thing. So here they are and we're hooked. We haven't had a chance to watch but one episode of their reality show on E!, but her book told the whole story. And we mean whole story. Girl doesn't mince words. Anyway, her husband just got "out of hospital" after having some brain thing. Random. Katie is pregnant with the couple's second child. They also have a son from Katie's previous relationship with a footballer. The tot, Harvey, has a disease similar to autism, and he is blind. Harvey is the center of Katie and Peter's life and after reading her book, we totally love him. Did we mention that Katie and Peter met on a reality show, "Help, I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!"? Yep. Uh-huh.
