Peter Andre VS Kate Price - Who wins?

The high-profile relationship and recent divorce of Peter Andre and Katie Price (aka Jordan) has been the subject of much attention over the last few years. However, when all is said and done who wins in the end?

Since their 'chance' meeting on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here in 2004 we have had to endure the trials and tribulations from marriage to divorce.

I often wonder why people are so drawn to sensationalism like this as to me it seems like a mediocre plot from a soap opera. Whatever I think the Peter and Jordan story is big business for tabloids, gossip mags and other broadcast media (and of course PRs somewhere in the background). I always find it fascinating on how people get so obsessed about celebrity culture and want to know every gory detail. Everyone seems to have an opinion too as if they know all the facts inside-out and are some sort of Peter/Katie relationship expert.

It is sad that many that focus on this often neglect the real relationships around them. They also appear to have a very short memory. Peter Andre for instance was almost a complete nobody before that 2004 apart a couple of luck-lustre pop records where he took his shirt of quite a lot.

Then came a certain reality TV show and a relationship with Glamour model Jordan. He was suddenly thrust back into the limelight with relationship that then became a celebrity marriage in 2005. Jordan's love-life up until that point had been tumultuous to say the least. It included well-known footballers, and other celebrities. For the most part, however, Jordan has also been known for taking her top of quite a lot too.

The high profile relationship even lead to a TV show which featured the lifestyle of the glamourous couple with pseudo Posh and Becks style awe. Then was the divorce.... which of course lead to two separate TV shows in which both divorcees attempted to show to the world how much better they were doing than the other.

As most people know the recent divorce and pot-shot spats have become very messy. These are people who probably never heard the phrase 'Do not wash your dirty linen in public'. Add to this some children and it makes for a very volatile situation.

We have heard stories about relationship jealousy, and we have even been subject Jordan's past stories of rape. I wonder what their kids will think when they grow up and see what happened to them when they were young.

At the end of the day I ask who wins? It surely isn't the kids. Is it us who consume this information almost voyeuristically? Is it Peter Andre who is now trying to keep shirt on this time and launch a solo career as 'serious music artist'? Is it Katie Price who is desperately trying create a couple of other reasons to remember her by? Or is it the sensationalist media and other related businesses who fan the flames of an on-going drama for financial gain?
