MIC/TOWIE: HAS REALITY TV HAD IT'S DAY? (IMO- YES!)

I cant believe that I am actually typing this, but the day has finally come where I have fallen out of love with reality TV. Now, for the last God knows how many years I have been THE biggest fan of TOWIE, to the point of if I was to ever appear on Mastermind, it would have been my specialist subject. Yes, I really was that obsessed! Whenever a new series started it was like a team-building activity at my flat. My housemates and I would settle down in the lounge with a selection of telly snacks, and my ex-boyfriend would come round just in time for it to start to watch it with us. I'm one of those people where I HAVE to watch it with people. I HAVE to discuss the events as they happen and give my opinion on every hook-up/date/argument/event. Oh, and if that wasn't enough then I also did a running commentary on Twitter so I could interact with other super fans and stir a bit of trouble with a few highly opinionated tweets ;)

I was absolutely HOOKED on the first few series, and then my favourite characters starting leaving the show to move onto bigger and better things, and their replacements were kind of disappointing. First there was Mark Wright, then Amy Childs, JOEY ESSEX (my absolute fave) Sam Faiers, Lucy Meck...

Even the little addition of some eye candy didn't help....Cos he bloody left too!
And same with MIC, Francis left, Caggie, Millie, and now big Spenny has gone! As much as I thought he was a massive twat, his womanising ways were the best thing about Chelsea! Oh, and who can forget the famous #SMACKINTOSH


#TEAMMILLIE
I was hanging onto TOWIE by the skin of my teeth, until I recently found out my ALL-TIME favourite Diva had left the show. GC, HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME?! I just love everything about her, her diva strops, her love/hate relationship with Bobby, her hilarious one-liners. I mean who can forget the infamous pool scene in Marbs?!?!


"You ain't EVER gonna get this candy!!!!"

She was the only good thing left about the show. So should ANOTHER series have been filmed? (15!!!!)




IMO, #TOWIE has had it's day. Same goes for #MIC. I didn't watch ANY of #MICLA, despite being so obsessed with the NYC episodes. Nowadays, I have to admit I can't even be bothered having it playing in the background. I've grown tired of the constant rows and bitching and falling out, nothing is funny or entertaining any-more, and it's become a bit of a chore to watch. In fact, now I have discovered how to add gif's to my posts, here are a collection of Lucy Watson eye-rolls to illustrate how I feel when someone asks me if I watched the latest episode...

  1. I've never been a MiC fan but TOWIE is one my fave guilty pleasures - I don't think I could ever give it up! I'm with you as well, I have to discuss these important matters with someone else haha.

  2. It pains me to say that I have to agree with you; I miss the glory days of TOWIE and Made in Chelsea (and Geordie Shore and Desperate Scousewives :|). However, I can't believe Gemma was EVER your favourite hahahha, "you ain't ever gonna get this candy" made me want to drown myself in the toilet!

  3. I loved TOWIE and MIC but the new characters are just so dull! There's nothing sparky about them at all!
