Poodle Bitch Wonders About Katie Price and the British Tabloids

In his Preface to The Picture of Dorian Gray, one of Poodle Bitch's favorite authors, Oscar Wilde, wrote,

No artist is ever morbid. The artist can express everything.

This is a sentiment with which Poodle Bitch heartily concurs. Artists can, and should, explore all topics, no matter how distasteful.

What matters to Poodle Bitch is the manner in which such topics are explored. Those are matters of taste, and tastes vary. Poodle Bitch can only express her own, and has no wish to force her opinions on others (no matter how helpful she believes that might be).

That said, Poodle Bitch generally does not enjoy films that contain violent images, no matter how high their artistic merit. She makes an exception for the highly-entertaining television show "Dexter," but that is rare.

Despite the presence of the word "Bitch" in its title, Poodle Bitch suspects she will pass on viewing the currently-filming "Killer Bitch," starring the current boyfriend of British television personality Katie Price. Nonetheless, she was alarmed when she read this:

Katie Price was yesterday urged to dump her cagefighter lover after he filmed violent sex scenes in a new movie.

Shocked friends and aides fear Alex Reid is causing immense damage to her public image which will be impossible to repair.

Her estranged husband Peter Andre, who fathered two of her children, was also apparently outraged when he saw pictures of Reid writhing around semi-naked on the set of gangster film Killer Bitch.

This film certainly does not sound like the type of thing that Poodle Bitch would find entertaining. But she wonders if perhaps judgment should be reserved until after the film is completed?

She further wonders how the public image of Katie Price could be any more damaged than it already is. Poodle Bitch was under the impression that Ms. Price was what is known colloquially in England as "lewd."

Shameless Katie Price shocked family holidaymakers with a brazen X-rated public display with her new boyfriend Alex Reid.

The glamour model, 31, raunchily cavorted with the semi-naked, muscled cagefighter in the grounds of an exclusive golf resort in Spain as young children innocently looked on.

The obscene couple stunned neighbours in the upmarket compound by openly groping one another during a tacky display of affection.

The actor in question, Alex Reid, is described as a "cagefighter." In an attempt to learn more about him, Poodle Bitch happened upon another article about the "Killer Bitch" controversy. The article contained the following sentence that caused Poodle Bitch to chuckle:

The next scenes are too vile to describe in a family paper but end with him grabbing Yvette in a stranglehold and throttling her.

That sentence of course is surrounded by distasteful descriptions of violent actions. Now Poodle Bitch is very concerned about just what this film depicts.

If it's as bad as what British tabloids are willing to publish, Poodle Bitch believes it must be very bad indeed.
