Who is Lauren Simon?

Unlike some of her co-stars, Lauren was born and bred in Cheshire.

Coming from a wealthy family background, she has always lived in the area, apart from spending several years partying in London and Marbella.

Before she joined the cast of the popular ITVBe show, she worked in PR and marketing for VIP events and nightclubs.

The self-confessed “domestic goddess”, likes everything rich – whether that be coffee, chocolate or men.

Lauren is one of the more loveable and eccentric members of the cast.

She owns a pet rabbit, which she regularly parades around her local neighbourhood on a lead.

Who is Lauren Simon married to?

Lover of luxury Lauren recently divorced what she had thought to be her perfect match in her husband of 10 years, millionaire Paul Simon (not the singer!).

She confessed she has “never worked so hard” as she battles through the heartbreak of her divorce by launching a perfume business to show her daughters they don’t need to be “tied to a man” to succeed.

What is Lauren Simon’s net worth?

Even though Lauren is from an affluent background, she has more than contributed to her family’s fortune.

She owns property in Cheshire and Marbella and has landed a number of lucrative business deals outside of the Real Housewives show.

As well as signing as a Celebrity Presenter for Ideal World, she’s also launched her own perfume.

In October 2016, she released her luxury fragrance Lauren Stone Number One, which retails at a bank-busting £120.

Spears magazine estimates that Lauren Simon has a net worth of £6.9million.

DAUGHTER of model Katie Price and pop star Peter Andre, Princess Tiaamii was always going to end up making headlines one way or the other.

From appearing on Loose Women and her mum’s reality shows to causing a stir on Instagram here’s everything you need to know about Katie Price’s eldest daughter…

Who is Princess Tiaamii and how old is she?

Princess Tiaamii is the daughter of Katie Price and Peter Andre.

Born June 29 2007, Princess is the couple’s eldest daughter and is now aged 10.

She was born two years after her brother Junior, whose father is also Peter Andre.

Katie split from Princess’ dad in 2009 and since then married Alex Reid and is currently married to Kieran Hayler.

Princess also has half siblings Harvey (from mum Katie’s romance with Dwight York), Bunny and Jett (from Katie’s current marriage to Kieran) and Theodore and Amelia (her dad Peter’s kids with new wife Emily).

Why is she called Princess Tiaamii?

Princess got her unusual name because dad Peter wanted her to be named after both his and Katie’s mums – Thea and Amy, so he came up with the interesting combination.

Pete revealed at the time: “Katie always loved the name Princess, but everyone thought it was a bit over the top.

“I loved it too but I wanted to name her after both our mums.Then I just woke up one morning and thought, I know!

“We’ll just put them together! If people don’t like it, that’s up to them.”

Her full name is Princess Tiaamii Crystal Esther Andre.

Why has Princess Tiaamii been at the centre of Instagram controversy?

Over the years Princess’ mum Katie has come under fire for posting pictures of her on social media showing her pouting and wearing make-up.

Back in 2015 she caused a furore by sharing a picture of the youngster wearing lashings of mascara and pouting her lips which were covered in lip gloss.

At the time Princess hit back at critics herself in a clip posted online by her mum, saying: “By the way, I wanna do my make-up, not my mum, I do. And anyway it’s none of your beeswax, so oosh!”

In early 2017 her mum Katie divided opinion again by sharing a picture of her posing in her bikini on holiday.

While many complimented the beautiful youngster, others believed the images were overly sexy for a child.

Katie later defended her decision – saying that Princess doesn’t even know what ‘sexy’ is.

She said: “If I said to Princess don’t pose like that it’s too sexy – she doesn’t know what sexy is.

“She just watched the best!…  The people who were saying she looked too sexy, they looking at her thinking she looks sexy…

“They should take a look at themselves and wonder why they are saying she looks sexy.”

Katie again came under fire in July 2017 after posting a video of Princess and Junior to Instagram showing them promoting a drinks range.

At the end of 2016, Princess briefly had her own Instagram account after begging her mother for one.

The decision to allow her was wildly criticised with critics claiming that she was placing them in danger from online predators, and forcing them to grow up too fast. The account disappeared just a few weeks later.

Has Princess Tiaamii appeared on TV shows?

It is no secret that Princess is keen to follow in her famous parents’ footsteps.

She has already appeared on TV with their mum and dad on their numerous reality show, and most recently starred on Katie’s new TLC show Katie Price’s Pony Club.

Princess has also made a few appearances on Loose Women, alongside brother Junior.

The Sun’s Bizarre Column has also reported how Junior and Princess are in discussions to become the faces of McDonald’s.

A source revealed how the pair being offered big bucks to represent the fast-food chain’s world-famous Happy Meals.
