No, Richard, as I am sure you know, it was not a fucking joke:

On 5 March 2009, Jade Goody requested to be christened from her bed at the Royal Marsden Hospital;[104] on 7 March she and her sons were christened.[105] Clifford confirmed that this would be Goody's last public appearance, and that she had already said her goodbyes to her family. He stated, "We're hoping and praying that Jade pulls through, but the fact of the matter is that she now only has a short time to live."[104] He also confirmed that doctors had said the next 24 hours were crucial to assessing how long it will be before she dies, but that she had only a very short time left regardless. Her husband Jack Tweed was allowed to extend his curfew so he could spend a final night with his wife before she said her final goodbyes to her family.

She is done with her public life, leave her alone.
