"Is it any wonder I reject you first?
Fame, fame, fame,
From here the story starts to get complicated. However, thanks
to the sterling work of the Mushers, it is possible to piece together the
real version of events, as opposed to the one Jodie would like to have us
Monday 27th November 2006.
3rd December 2006.
Dave's ex Aleisha gives her version of events to the News of
To the amazement of absolutely nobody it appears that, actually, Dave was
not single when Jodie set her sights on him. Indeed, not only was he
still with Aleisha, his girlfriend of four years, they were engaged with a
Thailand wedding planned for just two months later. As one might imagine,
being publicly dumped so close to her wedding was devastating for the poor
girl, who was left hurt, humiliated and angry, and with a wedding dress that
she now had no use for.
4th December 2006.
The day after Aleisha's story runs, Jodie rages furiously
against Dave's ex in her blog. It's a truly vicious attack, shocking even by
Jodie's standards. Remember, this is the girl who has been left
broken-hearted, because her fiancÚ has just announced his engagement to
another woman. Aside from denying that Aleisha and Dave were a couple when
Jodie began her pursuit of him (even though Aleisha's story is confirmed by
Jodie's own blogs) Jodie claims that Aleisha smashed up Dave's flat and
stole his clothes and passport. And the character assassination doesn't stop
there - she goes on to relate that Aleisha herself broke off her existing
relationship when she met Dave and, as if that wasn't already enough to
allow Jodie to justify her own behaviour, she throws in a final 'fact' about
Aleisha's ex: namely that, at the time of the break-up,
he had leukaemia
which went on to kill him.
Of course, we only have Jodie's word for all of this but, if
Aleisha really did smash up Dave's flat and steal his clothes (and this is
disputed by her) I think most of us would have some sympathy for the girl.
Her life has just been turned upside-down, her future plans shattered; her
anger would be pretty understandable. As for the comments about Aleisha's
ex-boyfriend's illness and death (and there are real doubts about the truth
of Jodie's allegations - the man in question was certainly alive and well
and posting on the Friends Reunited website, some time after Aleisha and
Dave were together) it's hard to imagine that anyone would go so low as to
use that as a weapon. To use it as a weapon to attack someone that you
yourself have wronged, simply beggars belief. Jodie's complete absence of compassion however, makes this just another
chapter in her spiteful, bullying life.
9th December 2006.
A MySpace message appears from Jodie to her friend Freddy (who
she refers to in her blogs as FitBod). For once, she actually has a job that
requires more of her than just turning up in her underwear and drinking free
vodka. She is to be the presenter of a new TV show, and is filming over
several weeks. Her message witters on about how hard she's working, telling
Freddy "Poor Dave is sitting here every night on his
own trying to stop the dogs and cat fighting!"
12th December 2006.
14th December 2006.
Jodie blogs about being sexually frustrated of late, saying "I
am thinking about sex non-stop and talking about it. It's such a terrible
shame that by the time I get home all my energy is zapped because otherwise
Dave would be having the time of his life right now!!!" Now, Dave is
apparently the love of her life, her soulmate, the man she wants to marry
and have a family with. Though she is, undoubtedly, quite busy, she and Dave
are in the first throes of this epic love story. For someone who constantly
talks about how highly sexed she is and how much she needs sex, you have to
wonder - tired or not - how she manages to keep her hands off him.
Particularly as she has previously blogged about how amazing the sex between
them is, even revealing that Dave is extremely well endowed.
20th December 2006.
Jodie writes a long, rambling blog, her first for a few days.
She writes about having finished filming; the wrap party she was at until
6.30am; going to Topshop; wrapping gifts; shopping with friends... Dave gets
one tiny mention when she says "Tuesday I got up, went
to get food with Jord and Kyle, popped in to see Carolina and then came home
to meet Dave at mine." Which sounds like Dave is no longer resident
at her place. The blog goes on - "I came home to meet
my cleaners with the intention of getting my dressing room spotless.
Tomorrow I have a really big photo shoot at home
[for OK magazine] and need the house to look amazing."
She then lists all the things she has to look forward to: her
birthday, Christmas, New Year's Eve, going to see a friend in Australia in
January... And yet, throughout her long excited list of upcoming treats,
there is not one single word about Dave. Nor does she, at any point, use the
word 'we'. Although, in recent months, she has blogged repeatedly about
wanting a boyfriend to take to Barbados after Christmas (she had even
offered to take dancer Ben during her infatuation with him) this is not
mentioned, despite the fact that she has, not just a boyfriend, but a fiancÚ
to share the Caribbean sun with. She ends with a bizarre quote "Girls
are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. The boys
don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and
getting hurt. Instead, they get the rotten apples from the ground that
aren't as good, but easy. So the apples up top think there is something
wrong with them when in reality they're amazing. They just have to wait for
the right boy to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way
to the top of the tree....... x" - so so true!!!!!!!!! More true than any
quote before in fact! Jeez men are wimps!" It's certainly an odd
thing for a happily loved-up, newly engaged woman to write!
23rd December 2006.
Jodie writes a blog where she claims to be drunk entitled "someday
id december - the day b4 my birthday - I'm drunk!!!!!!!!
" It seems
odd that she doesn't know the date, given that it's the day before her
birthday but, aside from that, Dave is again conspicuous by his absence. In
fact, Jodie is talking (one presumes jokingly) about waiting ten years so
she can marry the 8 year old brother of a friend. She's been clubbing,
dancing on people's shoulders, drinking and generally getting into the
birthday spirit. And, she tells us, it's only the beginning.
right into the party spirit,
although, apparently, without the love of her life.
27th December 2006.
Jodie leaves a MySpace message for her friend Freddy. "me
and russ and tony and sarah are drunk. hellooooooo fit bod! russ is
massaging my shoulders & i tried to pull 16 year old (maybe). we have just
eaten pizza bagels and the pussy is crying. i don't like cats but i love
you! x x xx x" Why on earth would someone who has just met the love
of her life be trying to 'pull a sixteen year old'? (Incidentally, Jodie is
often drawn to extremely young men and enjoys 'perving over fit 18 year
olds' and snogging schoolboys). And committed 'animal lover' Jodie seems
pretty hostile towards her fiancÚ's cat, doesn't she?
At this point, the Mush rumour-mill goes into overdrive.
Seasoned blog-watchers have seen the signs before and are now fairly certain
that her relationship with Dave is on its last legs, if not completely over.
A number of people message Jodie and Dave, via their MySpace pages, asking
if they have split up. That night a new blog appears.
Jodie talks about her '7 day bender'. She mentions Dave
several times as being amongst the group she has been partying and having
fun with, though she does say later "I was woken up by
my dad calling me at 8am Christmas morning and Jordan came to pick me up 5
minutes later. We then had all the usual present-opening and champagne
breakfast and then I shot home to get showered & changed & pick Dave up from
his house." There's a visit to see Dave's family then she goes back
alone to stay at her parent's house. Boxing day is spent with her own family
then, that night, she goes out with her girlfriends and one of them, Sarah,
stays with her that night.
Again, something here is not ringing true. At the start of a
love affair, newly engaged, and at a special time of year (Jodie's birthday
and Christmas) wouldn't most people be desperate to have some time alone
together? Not only has Dave barely featured in her partying, even when he
does feature there are anything up to 20 of Jodie's 'best mates' in tow as
According to Dave (it will later transpire) he dumps Jodie
around this point - somewhere between the 28th
and 31st December.
