I need to chat about it, there are no threads which I can find.

Loads of you watch Made in Chelsea so you aren't above any of this crap.

I watched it once. A dumb blonde girl took her pet pig to a shop opening and it peed on the floor.
I've been to Brentwood and it's not that smart.

MimmeeBack Wed 03-Jul-13 23:27:14

I do. Tell me your thoughts wink

hiddenhome Wed 03-Jul-13 23:27:24

I watch neither. From seeing the trailers, they all look like blow up dolls confused

70isaLimitNotaTarget Wed 03-Jul-13 23:29:14

I saw 15 seconds while I channel hopped.

I don't CARE about them yet they are always in the paper/online.

I live 5 or so miles from Brentwood (hope TOWIEness isn't catching)

If my DD dressed like that I'd skin her scrub her.

I'm waaaaaaaay above this crap grin

My DP watches it.... confused

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Wed 03-Jul-13 23:32:32

Fuck NO! Im from Essex, and I would rather die!

TigOldBitties Wed 03-Jul-13 23:32:36

Ooh 70 where do you live? My sis lives in Brentwood, plus masses of family in the TOWIE area (buckhurst, chigwell, billericaaaaay etc) and I've spent my life growing up in east London or Essex.

Well I just want to gossip about it really blush same as the MIC threads.

It makes me laugh, they may have more money but I definitely have more sense.

Miamiami Wed 03-Jul-13 23:33:38

I watch it !!!

70isaLimitNotaTarget Wed 03-Jul-13 23:34:00

I'm in Romford Tig (the Home of Happiness) wink

TigOldBitties Wed 03-Jul-13 23:34:59

I don't get the hate, I'd say they're no worse than the chelsea lot, who are equally orange, tacky and flash with very questionable love lives.

Mario seems to get more hideous with every episode, and I find him so appallingly behaved yet still supported by his adoring mother.

Definitely gone off Chloe and am warming to new girl Fearne.

I think Romford has the chav reputation though rather than TOWIE

<<Daily Mail sad face emoticon>>

TigOldBitties Wed 03-Jul-13 23:36:54

grin ha 70! Romford my old friend. The years I spent traipsing around South Street and the Liberty. I used to live in Aggy Daggy so was forever up there buying my going out gear on a Saturday.

Just last year I saw a guy getting a blowjob in the Brewery car park.

Apparently two of them did a Perfume Launch at Bluewater and only about 12 people went to it.
I was at Bluewater that day and I didn't get killed in the rush - unlike the day there was a huuuge queue (DD was intrigued) but it was for Peter "I LOVE MY KIDS" Andre.

I hope she took her ciggy out of her mouth first Tig shock

MousyMouse Wed 03-Jul-13 23:39:25

what is it?
<useless with acronyms>

70isaLimitNotaTarget Wed 03-Jul-13 23:41:22

The Only Way Is Essex

Look at you Mousy pretending you don't watch it wink

Wuldric Wed 03-Jul-13 23:44:39

No. They is all common as muck. HTH

TigOldBitties Wed 03-Jul-13 23:46:46

It's Kent, they're very suspicious of the other side of the river, anddd I once saw people eating sandwiches there its cutlery! Nt that I don't go there almost weekly oh no

Wow claim to fame seeing him there though, I was once lucky enough to see super nanny Jo Frost and Brian Belo on the same day at lakeside. Starstruck!

Yes bj girl managed that but not to have the common decency to stop nice it was clear we had seen. I guess they ad braved that horrible sloping travelator so good luck to them.

Eyesunderarock Wed 03-Jul-13 23:46:55

Sorry but no.
I watch sci-fi and fantasy crap, but I steer clear of all that reality show and soap crap.
Selective about by crap am I. smile

timidviper Wed 03-Jul-13 23:54:18

I watch it. I used to enjoy it for it's sheer awfulness (and for Mark Wright who was gorgeous till he opened his mouth!) but I am finding it really tedious now, too staged and I'm sick of watching the girls put up with the awful behaviour of their boyfriends over and over again. I keep watching and hoping it'll get better.

I can't think who I really like anymore but I dislike quite a few of them, especially now they are all overacting, and doing it badly. I don't like many of the new ones and have to say I don't like Fearne, not very bright, too full of her own opinions and rough as a robber's dog!

FinallyMrsFC Wed 03-Jul-13 23:55:12

I watch it. It's filmed round where I live, but I've only ever see Arg bobbing round the pool at my gym and Lydia's Mum walking her dog.

I can't bear Gemma. Or Arg. Or Diags. Or Mario. or Ricky. Or Lydia.

Dunno why I watch it really... grin

Wuldric Wed 03-Jul-13 23:59:11

I did get filmed on the Chelsea version though <preen>

Only, and this is the thing. THEY WERE NOT FILMING IN CHELSEA <SHOCK> We were in Greenwich and they were filming in the market and I saw the most gorgeous georgian silver tea pot and then the fricking film crew intervened. I still have lust for the tea pot

TigOldBitties Wed 03-Jul-13 23:59:20

Oh I like diags and as I said am warming to Ferne. I like that she's quite hobby and always making dodgy jokes, strange face though. I got really tired of it for a while but have been enjoying this series so far.

Am glad there hasn't been much more of that Wayne Lineker, felt really sorry for Gary, showing him up like that.

I love it. It really makes me laugh, which is maybe quite revealing about me.

Bring back Mark I say. I had the massive hots for him and I loved his banter.
