So I caught up with last night’s TOWIE, and wanted to shout at the screen several times.
I’ll try and explain why…
Whether you like Tommy and Georgia’s delivery or not, you can’t deny they’re doing the right thing. They’re protecting their friend. Yes Chloe is a strong woman but she is also a single woman with a teenage daughter and when we’re upset, we need our friends to support us.
Fair enough that Pete is upset with Tommy, but Georgia didn’t have a go at him. She spoke to him calmly and explained her reasons. So why did he then slag her off?
I’m glad him and Chloe cleared the air but if reports are to be believed other events may affect that.
I can’t help but agree with Chloe. Every scene – bar the Gemma/Bobby bits – involved people talking about Megan. Not because they’re jealous, or they actually care; but because of the way she acts.
As an older person, I hate to see girls like her and Amber Turner advert like that. They come across like the fields in school who made other people’s life hell. Their pretty faces don’t make up for ugly souls.
She is manipulative, you only have to look at the way she unnecessarily rang Pete last week to tell him about Tommy. The way she is quick to shout and scream at everyone else, but makes out like she’s the victim when it’s people she knows some tasks her shit. Suddenly she’s all sweetness and light when Chloe or Georgia day something.
Chloe Meadows was right not to go. Why would Megan want her there when she clearly doesn’t like her. And who invites people on the day of the event. As my Nan used to say: “Late invitation is for fool.”
On a happier note, I loved Gemma doing her best friend duties and reminding Bobby that he is fabulous and worthy. Because, frankly, he is. Trust me, if I can find someone then there’s hope for everyone.
And Myles and Courtney were once again the epitome of cuteness. Can you imagine the babies?
I can’t help but feel like Frankie cheating on Jamie was merely his just desserts for all the cheating he’s done over the years. I always feel like if you’re cheating on your partner is because you don’t want to be with them, deep down. Just do the decent think and move on. For both of your sakes.
But much like Sam, I don’t take pleasure in it; I just ended up feeling sorry for the balding bleached bore. I mean once you look past money he isn’t exactly a catch and as the years go on, he doesn’t seem like he’s a lovely person. Although I imagine he’d be a good laugh on a night out.
We should all know by now that TOWIE likes to get us started with a bang and as much drama as possible, deliberate or otherwise.
And this series’ opener did not disappoint! There is literally so much to get through so I will try my best to do it as efficiently and quickly as possible. While wondering how GC looked so damn good in her hospital bed.
How is this series over already? I know everyone’s been saying it but it really has been the best series so far! The talent has been through the roof and there wasn’t one celebrity who couldn’t dance. Even Ed Balls could move and he was supposed to be this year’s ‘joke’ act. Before I discuss the winner, let’s take a look at all of the dances from the night.
My other half loves this. Has done since we met, which was around the time of the Punic Wars. Old episodes are freely available on YouTube and you wouldn’t believe the number of times I’ve woken in the middle of the night to the sound of 5000 Carthaginians roaring into battle on the end of my bed.
I always comfort myself with the knowledge it could be worse.
How are we at the quarter finals already? We’ve sorted out the wheat from the chaff and are down to the final 5. We’ve seen countless routines but now we’re seeing the performance shine through and the judges are picking up on the smallest of mistakes!
We were treated to 3 group dances this week too: Anton’s homage to the musicals, a West Side Story tribute and a Chicago-inspired number. I have to say that I am slightly biased because West Side Story is my favourite musical so of course that one was my favourite! Karen and Janette were just perfect as Anita and Maria; I just wish that the dance was longer!
I can’t believe there are only six couples left! I don’t want this series to ever end! Week ten is complete and it was a great week.
This week, the contestants had to learn two dances as they not only had their regular routine but the Cha-Cha-Challenge in which all six couples were on the floor at the same time dancing to the same song, like in a regular ballroom competition.
