KERRY Katona has called her friend Katie Price a drama queen and said “her life is all over the place”
The former Atomic Kitten star, who met Katie on I’m A Celebrity in 2004, made the frank admission while wishing her pal all the best after going bankrupt.
“Obviously I adore Katie Price, and I have a theory about why her reality show My Crazy Life has been renewed,” she writes in her new! magazine column this week.
“People love watching drama!
“And the fact is there’s so much drama around her – it’s like watching a soap opera so people are intrigued.”
Kerry and Kate were embroiled in a bitter feud for ten years before calling a truce.
Despite criticising Katie’s life choices, Kerry insists she’s still there for her friend after they put their differences aside thanks to their children playing together in 2017.
“I’ll always be there for Kate, so I’ll be tuning in, but her life is all over the place at the minute.
“That said, I know the public are rooting for her to turn it around and there’s no question she’s great entertainment, so good luck to her!”
Kerry has changed her tune as just two weeks ago, she offered her home to skint Katie for Christmas.
The singer, who went through her own bankruptcy in 2008 and again in 2013, vowed to extend some festive cheer to her troubled friend.
Katie, 41, was declared bankrupt last month and has since being doing all she can to earn some cash.
Christmas can be a costly time of year so Kerry invited Katie to join her for a festive feast.
Kez will be spending the day with her five children, partner Ryan Mahoney and her mum, Sue.
But Kerry insisted she’d have room for more if Katie and her kids needs it.
Speaking to Closer magazine she said: “When I was going through a difficult time with George (her late ex-husband) one night, I rang Kate. She said, ‘Get in the car and come and stay here right now.’
“So if she needed somewhere to stay, of course she could stay with me for Christmas – I’ll take her in and all of the kids.”
Meanwhile, Katie financial woes could be eased soon as The Sun exclusively revealed earlier today that she is set to cash a huge pay cheque for a fourth series of her reality show My Crazy Life.
The series, which airs on Quest Red, features the antics of her and her family, and of course her boyfriend Kris Boyson.
Insiders told The Sun Online that she’s already filming a fourth series and has signed a big money deal.
The source said: “She’s saying it’s at least six figures – she gets paid by the episode and more for specials – and she’s already filming.
“The cameras went with her to the Dreamboys the other night and will follow her through her house move and bankruptcy.”
Katie is quite the veteran when it comes to reality TV having completed two stints on I’m A Celebrity and had her own show with former husband Peter Andre.
She’s been doing PAs around the country to cash in before Christmas after it was revealed she has lost her £2million mansion.
The former model – once worth £40million – is now facing homelessness after being forced to sign the 11-bed property over to a trustee.
She was declared bankrupt in November after the High Court found she had failed to stick to a plan to repay her debts, estimated to be £800,000.
