TOWIE: Open your eyes

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.” 

Besties love

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?

TOWIE is on ITVBe Sunday and Wednesday at 10pm

TOWIE: Back to the ‘Reef, back to reality

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.

TOWIE: Bows, Rows + Shows 

RIP Beau 

I’ll admit, I’m not the biggest animal lover but even I had something in my eyes while watching Bob grieving for his beloved dog. All losses hurt, so I hope Bobby can find some comfort in his memories. And at another time we’ll have the conversation about the irresponsible dog owners who don’t muzzle their pets.

Playa in Marbella + TOWIE: A double dose of clap(trap) 

I quite liked Elliott Wright when he was on TOWIE, in fact I rooted for him and Chloe Sims to make it work. But halfway through his new show I started to think she dodged a bullet.

Love Island Heading Home + TOWIM: Oops, Arg did it again! 

When you’ve been engrossed in a series – scripted, reality or otherwise – you always hope that whatever follows engages your attention span in the same way.

TOWIE: And now, the end is near…


I like to think this song was playing in Jake’s head when Chloe put on her big girl pants and walked away from him. Admittedly she should’ve seen past the pretty blue eyes a long time ago. But better late than never, I guess.

It has been a weird series for TOWIE with the introduction of Megan and her fans, I mean friends. Chloe and Courtney have added nothing to the show, except to make all the other girls closer as they unite over their dislike for them.

TOWIE: Preach Princess.


Oh Chloe Lewis!

I once thought you had the personality of a goldfish, but boy, you have redeemed yourself.

You put the fame-hungry Megan McKenna in her place, and it didn’t require physical violence. (Sorry Naomi)

TOWIE Oct 21: Plane wailing.

“Love is in the air, la la la la la, love is in the air.”

Luckily for my neighbours my singing voice is more in tune than Dan, Diags and Lockie’s out-of-time rendition. It was bad, oh reality TV God’s it was bloody awful! Thankfully Dan and Lockie look good enough in uniform – sorry Diags – to forgive their pitiful X Factor audition Continue reading “TOWIE Oct 21: Plane wailing.”

TOWIE Oct 18: Lies, pies and empty minds.

You can always rely on our Essex fraternity to fill our heads with their relationship drama, and this episode had it in heavy supply.

I’ll start with Lydia and Arg because I imagine you’re as bored by them, as I am. Has it really been seven years they’ve been playing this tedious game, coz it feels like a lifetime for us viewers. And have you noticed they don’t have one of those silly couple names! Is that because the only natural one is ‘Large’?

So tonight we had Arg writing Lyds a soppy apology letter – again, Lyds crying – again, everyone telling Arg to give her space – again, and Debbie acting like it’s her marriage that is breaking up. Again!!!

The joke is we can all see what is, and always has been the problem with this union. Arg clearly doesn’t feel he’s good enough for Lydia, and from all the gossiping around Debbie’s table, everyone agrees with him. While he’s had his issues and I salute his strength to maintain his recovery, he doesn’t need a sponsor or a Mother. I’m presuming he has both of those. He needs a girlfriend, and until he doesn’t feel he has to lie about the silliest thing to ‘my Lyds’ we’ll continue to be bored by this never-ending storyline.

Someone I did have sympathy for was Pirate Pete. Rather than letting him take her on a proper date, Princess Jess made them gatecrash Fearne and Liam’s. Talk about the short straw for our favourite tattooed totty. I genuinely think if Gatsby looked like Pete, then the Princess would be picking out her wedding dress. Although she made a joke out of it, her description of them as ‘The Princess and the Stablehand’ felt like it was laced with a heavy dose of truth for her. I must admit that my heart went out to Pete when she pied him off, on camera AND in front of Fearne and Gatsby. I can’t help but feel she’s made a mistake because our Pirate seems like one of the only decent guys in Essex and he had the patience to deal with a girl who yells ‘high maintenance’ louder than Nanny Pat when she’s got the winning line at bingo’!

A quick note on Fearne and Gatsy – Fatsby, Fiam or Gearne? Anyway, I would hate to think that Fearne is just interested in his money, as seems to be the general social media consensus. I think it may be a little more than that, not everyone has to look like Brad Pitt people. Liam is hugely confident, as is Fearne, and I think she’s appreciating the fact that she’s met a guy who is not scared by that. He thrives on it and he’s clearly got enough ego for the both of them. But hey, we will see…

Was I the only one that thought that scene where Kate, Chloe and Nicole were having dinner was absolutely abysmal? Don’t get me wrong, they’re all attractive girls but the fact that only one of of the three of them was able to string a proper sentence together was deeply concerning for the future of the Essex economy. There are only so many boutiques and salons ex-cast members can open!
