Katie Price and Katie Hopkins might be over the little row they had about Pricey’s use of government money to help disabled son Harvey, but the rest of the world, it seems, are not as now her own mother has stepped in.
And we thought Katie H’s rows with Perez Hilton would be the thing on everyone’s lips. We were halfway there, at least.
After Katie’s BFF Kerry Katona and her very own reps stepped in to defend the former glamour model over her decision, her MUM has spoken out to defend her daughter and hit back at all the criticism.
Mother knows best. Always.
ICYMI because you’ve been doing something much more interesting that just watching a bunch of celebs argue their way around a house (we’re a bit jealous), here’s a quick lowdown on what’s happened.
The row started after the 39-year-old rent-a-gob picked 36-year-old Pricey up on the fact that she uses a tax-funded driver and nurse to take Harvey to school, rather than pay for it herself.
Since then, debate has raged on over whether Katie SHOULD or SHOULDN’T be fitting the bill herself, and it’s yet to actually simmer down.
Amy Price, Katie’s mum, has now told The Sun her view of things, defending her daughter and saying: “It is so hurtful people can criticise my daughter for doing the best she can for Harvey.
“Katie Hopkins would never know how difficult, exhausting and lonely having disabled children can be — no one can unless they have lived it.
Katie’s 62-year-old mum added her dears that other families with disabled children could now be judged different off the back of “throwaway comment.”
She added: “Our problems are real, they don’t go away when the show finishes. They are here for life as they are for all families with a disabled child.
“I feel passionately Kate does everything she can for Harvey and she pays more taxes than most. But she also contributes things that can’t be valued in financial terms.”
She went on to describe other things that Katie does to help, like staying up at night to answer young girls who’ve emailed her after their babies have been diagnosed.
She really is a lovely person, isn’t she?
We have NO idea who’ll voice their opinion next, but we have a funny feeling this one will run and run.
Wake us when it’s over.
