A few months ago I discovered the wonder that is British reality television. What they have airing over there is so much better than our nonsense. Jersey Shore was cool the first time around, but now pregnancy and rehab have taken the place of a tiresome combo of drugs, booze and Karma.
For reasons I still can’t explain, I am a sucker for ITV’s The Only Way Is Essex. The cast is made up of Brits who were born and raised in the Essex county of England, and aren’t moving anytime soon. The girls are addicted to spray tans, false lashes, rhinestone gowns and really, really big hair. Oh, and a sh** ton of eye makeup.
The TOWIE stars love themselves a fancy dress party (costume party) and throw one at the Sugar Hut any chance they get. You can tune in to the first three seasons on Hulu.
Britain’s E4 channel came up with their version of The Hills with Made In Chelsea. It’s a bit more subdued and not nearly as entertaining as TOWIE. However, there are a few characters that make our brows furrow.
Without further ado, may I introduce the ten reality Brits you really must get familiar with.
