British Reality Star Jade Goody Dies at 27
British reality star Jade Goody has died following a seven-month battle with cervical cancer. She was 27.
Goody died in her sleep Sunday morning, which was Mother's Day in the U.K., with her mother, Jackiey Budden, and her husband, Jack Tweed, at her side.
A former dental assistant, Goody rose to fame in 2002 on the British version of Big Brother. In 2007, she sparked controversy when she mocked Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty's accent on Celebrity Big Brother.
To apologize, Goody appeared on the Indian version of Big Brother. During filming last summer, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer, which was captured on film. In February, she learned the disease had spread to her liver, bowel and groin, and that she only had weeks to live.
Making the most of her final days, Goody wed Tweed, and held a baptism in her hospital room for herself and her sons, Bobby, 5, and Freddy, 4, whom she had with ex-boyfriend Jeff Brazier.
