Suprise suprise! The bold burlesque dancer Georgina Baillie is selling ‘her story’ to The Sun tabloid. Probably making a small fortune off the back of her ‘grand-fathers humiliation’ by printing (what i assume will be) all the goary details of her sexual relationship with Russell Brand. Brand has since quit his BBC Radio 2 programme, The Russell Brand Show. Talks are still underway as to the position of Jonathan Ross at the BBC. Ross, who has a ”deeper” relationship with the BBC has also been suspended over the incident.
So, Georgina Baillie wants to be a celebrity? Surely nobody needs to remind her the treatment she can look forward to in that line of career, the intrusion into your private life etc. Now her blustering has cost Russell Brand his job. Saying that, I firmly believe (and so will Russell Brand’s fans and supporters) that it’s the BBC who have lost out here, they clearly needed him more that he needed them- hence why some feel he has ‘taken a hit’ for his pal Jonathan. He has issued a full and frank apology to both Andrew Sachs and his own radio show fans.
Andrew Sachs seems to have been taking all this like rational people would expect, with decency and professionalism. Indeed, the professional attitute of someone who has been in the entertainment business his whole adult life, who knows that sometimes things go wrong and who acknowledges that Ross and Brand should not be being subjected to this over the top treatment.
As for his granddaughter Georgina Baillie, she is in the process of talking to The Sun, giving interviews to all and sundry (looking extra classy) and still calling for their heads to roll- whilst setting up her case for court action against the pair claiming ‘life-long damage’ to her reputation… nothing decent and professional about her then eh?
But it seems that she may have bitten off more than she can chew since now The Sun are appealling in this article ‘Got a story, Do you know Georgina?’ which could see a whole ream of stories coming out about her…probably none of them too savoury and all with the potential to upset her grandfather. Oh well, in the words of Mr Vernon in ‘The Breakfast Club’… “don’t mess with the bull…”.
