Scent of a Woman Scorned

East is east. West is Big Brother House, and the twain has met at the perfume factory in India:

A plant in India which makes perfume bottles endorsed by British television star Jade Goody has stopped production following the Big Brother racism row.

The news came after Goody's perfume was withdrawn from at least one UK chain last week following the row.

Goody visited the factory in western Gujarat state when her perfume, Shh, was launched last year, officials said.

She was accused of leading alleged racist bullying of Bollywood star Shilpa Shetty on the reality TV show.

Goody was evicted from the Big Brother house on Friday after her on-screen rows with Shetty.

....Stephen Noronha, vice-president of Pragati Glass where the perfume bottles are made,....said Goody had seemed polite and curious when she toured the plant last year

She even said 'India is a beautiful country'. Maybe they all say it."
