I live where TOWIE is made. They've turned my town into a tourist attraction for mindless twats They've invaded all the places I liked to go drinking, meaning that now they are full of TOWIEtrons. They've opened mind numbing shops in the high street selling vacuous fasionista tat, mobbed by 14 year old girls on a day trip to the town just to hang around and take pictures of themselves posing outside the shops. The building containing the Sugar Hut Village (a nightclub) used to be a 16th Century coaching inn and it used to be me and my mates' regular. When the SHV bought it they ignored the Grade II Listed status and ripped out all the old beams and shit, and never got brought to book They've ruined my town and I loathe them and their celebrity status. They have nothing positive to bring to the party except fake good looks and a big gob, which unfortunately seems to be the currency du jour in Essex these days
I don't, however, think they got rich from the show.

My wife and I happened to be having a short break in Tynemouth when we noticed a film crew near the crazy golf. Slightly interested for a few moments until we realised it was the brainless goons from "Geordie Shore".
from a window that gives this view:
 Unlike Connor, I hope said brainless goons do see this, become upset and rethink their pointless, idiotic lives. Then go and read some Jane Austen.

I'm also now irritated at myself as well, simply because that last post was so unbelievably ranty and angry, and now I feel like a dick for even putting fingers to keyboard.
I mean, I dislike those above-mentioned cretinous "entertainment" shows, but really... disproportionate reaction, or what? I'm generally a bit of a keyboard warrior as it is, but this is a new level. I should probably calm down a bit. After all, it's not as if I'm fooling anyone... I'm an angry teenaged scallywag hiding behind a monitor when I should be out having a social life.
And now I feel like a puss for basically apologising for calling Joey Essex a bellend. Even though he is one.
I really am a twunt.
No, it means you are a normal, well-adjusted rational human being.
Just because the TV industry has been taken over by morons, doesn't mean we have to put up with it.
And I'm tempted to think, anyone who is dumb enough to put themselves forward for one of those programmes, is so emotionally un-intelligent that it never occurs to them that anyone could possibly dislike them.
(I'd just like to note here, I'd only seen 5 minutes of Towie before my brain started oozing out of my nose - it was a bit like eavesdropping on conversations in McDonalds...)
