British reality star Katie Price is well-acquainted with controversy, and she's amidst it again after suggesting she might hire a prostitute for her autistic teenage son.
On the U.K. talk show Loose Women, Price said, "Harvey is 15 now. Naturally, at 15 you go through puberty and it's natural to experiment with yourself," and then went on to state that her husband was the first one to jokingly suggest they hire Harvey a prostitute for his 18th birthday.
Price went on to say, "He hasn't got a clue about that side," in regard to Harvey's understanding of sex, and then added, "What do you do, do I leave it?"
Another guest on the panel offered some advice, saying, "I think you wait and see if he's angst-ridden about it and if it's an issue for him."
As mentioned, Harvey is autistic, but he also suffers from partial blindness and Prader-Willi syndrome, a rare genetic disorder a that is causes delayed development as well as an insatiable appetite.
Price made a name for herself through modeling and reality TV, as well as the many novels she's penned, but she's also enjoyed some time in the music spotlight as well.
Back in 2006, she put out a duet album titled A Whole New World with her then-husband, Australian singer-songwriter Peter Andre. That album was not critically renowned, but it did land at #20 on the UK Albums Chart.
Then, in 2010, she independently recorded and released the dance single "Free To Love Again," and that song peaked at #4 on the UK Indie Charts.
In another recent appearance on Loose Women, Price actually performed a new song and it did not go over well.
As Price belted out her song, the shows viewers took to Twitter to voice their disapproval.
One person wrote, "Scolded Cat' springs to mind 'A Whole New World' of pain for the ears… Ffs GIVE IT UP You Can't Sing."
Another viewer said, "#LooseWomen forgot to give the details of the helpline for anyone affected by @MissKatiePrice singing! Wishing everyone a speedy recovery."0comments
Suggesting that Price has never been talented, a third person stated, "When will Katie Price learn she can't bloody sing #LooseWomen."
Maybe her next appearance on the show will be less controversial. Time will tell.
