Katie Price is a model, business woman and frequent tabloid obsession.

Katie Price is your Connector of the Day.
Katie Price is your Connector of the Day.

Born in Britain in 1978, Price, who was previously known as just Jordan, has become a controversial obsession for teenage girls around the country.

After a series of modelling and television gigs, Price appeared in the hit show "I'm a Celebrity...Get me Out of Here!" in which she met singer and future husband Peter Andre.

Their relationship became a national obsession and spawned shows such as the "Katie & Peter" series, When Jordan Met Peter and Jordan & Peter: Marriage and Mayhem.

The couple split more than a year ago and Price has recently married cage fighter, Alex Reid.

In addition to her television successes, price has written numerous best-selling books including three bestselling autobiographies.

And this month she is launching her singing career with her debut single.

    I admire your ambition and appreciate your success. But why do you feel the need to live every moment in the spotlight and the public eye? Do you feel that any part of your life is sacred and private?

    growing up did you ever think you'd end up being on the front of so many tabloids?
    do you have any big regrets?

    Awwww come on, how can the "star" of page 3 and pathetic Brit scandal mags like Closer and Heat be considered worthy of even the barest mention? The non-entity is an unknown beyond the lowest common denominator of her home land, anyone with an ounce of intelligence considers her an attention junky not worth the slightest attention.

    Cop on CNN and stop scraping the slop at the bottom of the barrel.

    Why do you feel the need to showcase your personal relations, both familial and romantic via reality television and constant press exposure?
    How is this overexposure consistent with your please for privacy or your criticism of 'haters' when that coverage is largely negative?

    How much input did you have in convincing your newest husband to abandon his fight commitment against Tom Watson, thereby ending any possibility of his ever being taken seriously in the world of MMA?

    Finally, since you often claim that you are in fact a remarkably intelligent woman, as evidenced by your 'business empire', can you identify where this famous quote originates from: "At long last, have you left no sense of decency?"

    You have press following you constantly, tracking your every move. So how do you beat the stress and relax?

    Do you have plans to write any more books?

    The world is filled with war, rage, pain, hurt, strife and human conflict. Yet it is Jordan who commands a special section of the CNN website where she answers "questions".

    I find it somewhat ironic that a Page 3 girl, reknown for showing off her pneumatic breasts and veneered appearance, is answering questions about her celebrity, namely that she is a well-manufactured one, rather than her publishing a stance on culture, theatre or the arts.

    The Chicken Noodle Network earns its monicker here. Congratulations for being swayed by Jordan's PR agency in an attempt for her to crack the American market. Truly tawdry from the most trusted name in (PR-hyped) news....

    What I'd like to know is her opinion on people that become famous because of reality TV. Does this 'trend' take away from people who actually can actually act, sing, dance or whatever? Why are people so fascinated by these pseudo-celebs??

    Thanks,
