TOWIE look is just repulsive

First published in Letters

ARE there no more real girls in Warrington?

All the ones I see are Big Brother obsessed, fake tanned wannabe WAGs, acting like desperate Scousewives fancying celebrities they will never get to marry.

I find it tragic that this is a sad reality in Warrington and other other towns.

The fact that girls worship vain, shallow ‘icons’ like Mark Wright and Lauren Goodger is weird. I see so many Warrington girls trying to achieve the TOWIE look, which is quite frankly repulsive. You see in magazines women of about 20 bursting into tears and fainting when they meet Lauren Goodger at a ‘signing’. The thing that worries me is that it’s not just gullible women who watch these programmes, I know a lot of intelligent females who watch them, my friend being one.

TOWIE is not a real documentary it is all scripted.

I tuned into the show for about 30 seconds and actually felt myself losing the will to live as I heard Mark Wright speak.

I find it alarming how many clones of these people I see in Warrington – girls who look like they have a disfunctioning liver from fake tan, hair straightened and coloured to within an inch of their lives.

Their appearance certainly achieves the wannabe WAG’s ultimate aim — attracting attention.

Sandy shaw wanna bes, Olivia Newton John wanns bes, Sam fix wanna bes, Spice Girls wanna bes, Katie price wanna bes, Towie wanna bes.

They've always been there. Some you think, OK thats a good look, some you think OMG you poor thing. At least with the Towie copiers we all get something to laugh at.

On the odd occasion I am driving through Warrington when everyone is out I do sometimes feel like shouting at them to put a coat on, they must be freezing their implants off (those who have them)! But MikeJT is right, there are always fads that come and go, it just makes the mind boggle at what the next fad will be.

Some men must clearly like this fake trashy look, why else would these girls continue to do it?
You would also think that one of their friends or family would say something!

I was once on a train from Manchester, returning to Warrington, one bitterly cold, icy day in mid winter about 3 or 4 years ago. Some scantily clad young ladies walked through the carriage I was seated in. One of them in particular caused a few raised eyebrows. She was wearing nothing more than a very short skirt which barely covered her essentials and a peice of material covered her breasts and tied with two strings at the back. Her midriff, arms and legs were totally naked.
Passengers could hardly believe what they saw. I remarked that the silly girl would pay dearly for her fashion sense (or lack of it) in years to come.

If you'd looked more closely you'd have seen she was being kept toasty warm by her Orford Overcoat.
Some glitter...

At least you can relax when you're watching TOWIE, safe in the knowledge that you won't have to jump out of your chair and go and get your dictionary

Posted just as ITV2 start the adverts for the live episode of TOWIE which takes the mickey out of the fact that they use a language nobody can understand.

Why are you so bothered about what other people look like or what they are into. "You see in magazines". Well don't read them magazines. it says a lot more about you than it does about them.

There are plenty of better causes that you can channel your anger towards.

You also want be careful about judging people by their looks. I know an 18 year old who has a fake tan, false nails, straightened dyed hair; just like the people you describe. But she doesn't watch Reality TV shows, doesn't want to marry a celebrity, is into indy bands not pop bands, got 8 A/A* GCSE's and is currently sorting out a place at Uni to study medicine.

She's certainly not an attention seeker. She's quite quiet as it happens.
