Goody revealed that she began to have suspicions that Shilpa was getting special treatment in 2007's Celebrity Big Brother. “I got the impression the producers jumped through hoops for Shilpa Shetty," the Sun quoted her as saying in her book.
“This was magnified in my mind because in the house she informed us of certain things (obviously none of this was screened, though). I kept thinking, This isn't the Big Brother I'd known, where you only got stuff if you earned it," she added.
The agony gave rise to an ugly spat with Goody making racist comment on the Indian actress, eventually leading to her exit. “I stepped out to the silence of the Big Brother compound. It was eerie," she said. She even tried to make amends saying, she apologises to anyone offended and she meant no hate. Goody said she is saddened that even after apologising over racism slur the nation still hated her.
