Is Shilpa Shetty a racist too?

I don't know the answer to that one. I just ask the question. Before Jade went ballistic, Shilpa was asked whether she'd marry a white man. She replied she would only marry an Asian.

I don't know whether this is racist or merely cultural or an expression of personal preference. Is this a "do you prefer oysters to snails" question?

Years ago I interviewed Jane Asher in her Chelsea cake shop. I asked her whether she'd mind if her kids married black people. She replied she would mind. She couldn't articulate precisely the problem but there was no doubting her unease at such a prospect. At the time I privately concluded her reply was racist. The media didn't follow up.

Am I wrong? I honestly don't know.

I don’t see how that will preclude Shilpa in having a share of Jade’s ‘Shhh’ perfume.
Does anybody know who makes ‘Shhh’ and their stock market symbol so I can see its value go up and down as the spin shifts into overdrive?

Tony Blair is racist as he is complicit in the daily murder of Arabs.
Shilpa and Jade have no apparent political viewpoint, I’ve only watched two episodes of this shit and some of the ones featuring that hypocrite George Galloway so I’m guessing.
They serve as a misdirection of what is really happening: global corporations and banks trading on the exploitation pollution and death of people living in the developing and third world and fucking us over for good measure; they are the racists; they are against the well being of the human race.

Ooooh, Arcati dear, I'm afraid you're talking too much... unless you're trying to confuse the issue about your real identity – would anyone with a little sense imagine you interviewing a domestic goddess ? :-)

I have interviewed all sorts, sugar. I shall never forget Asher struggling with the marital colour question as I gazed on a iced cock standing from one of her porno cakes.

A big black chocolate cock would have been hotter, I guess. Yum yum ! ;-)

The fact of the matter is, every human being on this planet is racist. The problem is people are too spineless to admit it.
