Fame-Hungry Wannabe Celeb is Having Abortion to Get on Reality Show (Video)

| by Allison Geller

A British “wannabe celebrity” has said publicly that she would terminate her pregnancy in order to get on the realty show Big Brother.

“I’m finally on the verge of becoming famous and I’m not going to ruin it now,” 23-year-old Josie Cunningham said in a video posted by the Mirror.

“An abortion will further my career. This time next year I won’t have a baby. Instead, I’ll be famous, driving a bright pink Range Rover and buying a big house. Nothing will get in my way.”

The model and alleged call girl was impregnated either by a Premier League soccer player or an escort agency client, she says.

Known as “NHS Boob Girl” for demanding an expensive breast job from state medical services to become a glamour model, Cunningham says that only her unborn baby is getting in the way of her getting her 15 minutes of fame.

“Channel 5 were keen to shortlist me then they found out I was pregnant,” she said, after which they “turned cold.”

“I’ve also had loads of other offers to further my career — and I’m not willing to give them up because I’m pregnant.”

An online petition urging Channel 5 not to allow Cunningham on the show had gathered 6,000 signatures in its first few hours.

Others have taken to Twitter to express their outrage, according to Metro.

“Josie Cunningham is disgusting,” one user wrote — an adjective that appeared more than once. Another user wrote that the show “deserves to be axed” for giving Cunningham a spot after her admission.

Cunningham is scheduled to have her abortion, legal in the U.K. through the second trimester, in a week.
