Will We Tire of TOWIE?

12 Jul

There is much to discuss in the land of Essex!

I absolutely love The Only Way is Essex and, as you know from previous posts, I visited Lauren Goodger’s salon back in May to get one of her infamous spray tans. It was all very new and exciting then to have an actual shop where you are almost 90% likely to see your fave TV reality star strolling through the doors! Now we are in July and the whole female cast have turned all entrepreneurial on us and put their names to something; whether it is a dress collection, bikini range or cupcakes, Lydia, Gemma and co have all signed up to sell us something. So let’s take a look at the competition…

We begin with the perfect Lucy Mecklenburgh and her brand-new bikini range being sold at Bella Bamba. I’ve been hearing about this for a while now through the Twittersphere and I have to admit once I clapped eyes on the designs… I felt mildly disappointed! I can’t believe I feel this way because Lucy is is the epitome of perfect but her designs are just plain boring. What do you think?

I can’t peel my eyes of her hot bod! Cripes have I got work to do!

Also brand new this month we have a collection for the curvier girls amongst us designed by the bold and bubbly Gemma Collins. Full of wild patterns and pleasing silhouettes the dresses are, to her credit, very flattering. I’d love to be able to post more info but at the time I was writing this her official website www.gemmacollinsofficial.com was undergoing some maintenance. So instead I’ll give you some cheeky photos of my fave dresses so far;

Lauren Pope is a very savvy little thing. This rather fit young lady has her fingers in every pie it seems as she has managed to carve out a successful career in DJ’ing and glamour modelling as well as having her own hair extension business (Hair Rehab) and dating website (www.hopewithpope.com) .. Aaahhh!

The Wright’s arne’t shy of a few spin-off successes themselves either. Mark tried his hand a spot of presenting on the dating show Take Me Out: The Gossip and then won his own show on ITV2 (Mark Wright’s Hollywood Nights) – both shows were pretty pants in my opinion with Hollywood Nights being unbearably cringy in places. His efforts on I’m A Celebrity! Get Me Out Of Here were Ok at best, I suppose, as he was the runner-up coming second to Dougie from McFly.

Mark’s older sister Jess Wright is doing just as well as the rest of them, naturally. She owns her own lingerie shop in Loughton, Essex and has recently ‘launched’ a singing career (although I’ve not heard her song on the radio or seen her video on the telly just yet but I’m sure this is her big break). Her track ‘Dance All Night’ made it to number 10 on the Clubland 21 track listing. Congratulations!

I can’t take it any more! If I’m bored of writing about all of these pointless merchandise attempts then you surely must be bored of reading about it! It doesn’t even stop there; Lydia has Bella Sorella, Sam & Billie own Minnie’s Boutique, Cara & Billi own Belles & Beaus and Lauren Goodger obviously has Lauren’s Way. Even the TOWIE rejects of yesterday are branching out; Harry Derbidge has his own collection on www.lovelemonade.com, Amy Childs owns the ever-inventive Amy Childs Salon and Kirk Norcross is currently dating Jodie Marsh and plugging his and his Dad’s (Micky) Sugar Hut empire online and with PAs.

The real story that will come of all this will come right after the final episode of TOWIE airs on our TV screens and the spotlight moves on to some other poor unsuspecting souls currently living their lives, happier than Larry himself.

It will be survival of the fittest (literally) and I can’t wait to see who has what it takes to make it post-TOWIE.

Who’s your money on?
