The two-part Geordie Shore special continued on Tuesday night – as those Geordie lads and lasses continued to ‘get mortal’ in party capital Magaluf!

The episode kicked off with a huge argument between the girls and the boys – leaving tensions high and a clear divide for the rest of the trip. Our favourite moment came the morning after ‘the fight’ when Gaz had to get a cab with both Charlotte and Vicky – awkward!

A large part this week’s show was devoted to Gaz, Charlotte and their love/hate relationship. First Charlotte said she hated him, and Gaz said she was fat. Then Gaz decided he fancied her and a bit of drunken bedroom action followed… only for Charlotte to lock herself in the bathroom the next morning and declare she hated him again…. Yeah, we struggled to keep up too!

As Vicky put it: “They’re like Romeo and Juliet…..if Romeo was a T**t.”

Aside from romance drama, the Geordie crew did what you’d expect them to when faced with unlimited alcohol, an amazing villa and a town full of clubs – partied hard! There was a pool party – Holly got her boobs out, Gaz got lucky,  a booze cruise – Gaz got lucky, and a party at the villa – Gaz got lucky… sensing a pattern here anyone?

Yes, while Gaz – and Jay- were pulling pretty much everything that moved, poor Greg and James were having no luck at all! James managed to get one cheeky snog (“I was beginning to think he couldn’t pull a muscle” said Vicky) but there was a serious lack of action for the geordie duo.

Perhaps if they’d followed Gaz’s rules for pulling they may have had more success. Yes, Gary told us all that you should “never, ever buy a girl a drink.” To be fair, it does seem to work for him!

So at the end of the holiday, relations between many of the group were pretty strained…. As far as we’re concerned, that will just make the second season even better! Can you hurry up and film it please MTV??

Geordie Shore ‘Magaluf Madness’ Part 1: Mint!

Those Geordie lads and lasses returned to our screens last night, in the first of a two-part special that sees the gang head to party capital Magaluf. “There are literally no girls left in Newcastle, I’ve been through them all – so where better to go than Magaluf?” Said Gaz. Well, if that isn’t a […]

Those Geordie lads and lasses returned to our screens last night, in the first of a two-part special that sees the gang head to party capital Magaluf.

“There are literally no girls left in Newcastle, I’ve been through them all – so where better to go than Magaluf?” Said Gaz. Well, if that isn’t a good enough reason for a holiday then we don’t know what is!

It appears that relations between the Geordie crew had reached breaking point by the end of the first series – leading Vicky to consider if she even wanted to take part.

“I could go away to Magaluf, get a tan and have fun…but at the end of the day I’m gonna have to be with that bunch of b*llends aren’t I?” she moaned.

Still, it seems this wasn’t enough to keep her away from party, as she turned up anyway- just in time to see former flame Jay wrapped around two nearly-naked girls. We’re pretty sure you can imagine what happened next – explosive isn’t the word!

This trend continued for most of the show, with arguments raging between our fave Geordie lads and lasses. Clearly sharing a house, a Jacuzzi and in some cases – love interests – doesn’t make for the most tranquil of holidays!

But it wasn’t all shouting and screaming. The trailer for the show used the slogan ‘We’re going to get on it’, and get on it they did. Strip clubs, Wet T-Shirt competitions, nakedness and general partying were all involved in the quest to have a “mint” time.

As the episode continued, it was clear to see there was a definite divide between the boys and girls, as each group attempted to ‘tash on’ with as many members of the opposite sex as possible.

We weren’t really surprised, after all James had warned us that he was heading to Spain’s top clubbing destination purely to “bang birds” and “get mortal”.

Say what you like about Geordie Shore and its stars – there’s no denying that it’s unmissable TV. Tune in next Tuesday at 10pm for the second instalment of ‘Magaluf Madness!’

Geordie Shore girls ditch the make-up!

Geordie Shore girls Vicky Pattison and Charlotte Crosby have dared to bare all – and look nearly unrecognisable!

Geordie Shore girls Vicky Pattison and Charlotte Crosby have dared to bare all – and look nearly unrecognisable!

The stars of the MTV reality show were photographed without their fake tan, eyelashes and heavy make-up for a feature in this week’s heat magazine – to show just what they look like au natural!

Personally we think that Vicky, 23 and Charlotte, 21 are naturally beautiful girls and look brilliant without a ton of make-up, but they don’t seem to agree.

Vicky told heat magazine: “I feel much more confident with it all on: tan, concealer, foundation, powder, bronzer, blusher, mascara, eyeshadow, false lashes, the lot! I’m definitely out of my comfort zone today.”

Wow! It’s a wonder the Geordie lass can keep her head upright with all that weighing down her face!

Charlotte, too, admitted that she struggles to leave the make-up alone saying: “I’m one of those girls who’ll wake up in the morning and make a dash to the bathroom and put make-up on!

“I’ve been seeing this lad for a few weeks, and this weekend I took my make-up off for the first time. I wake up with false lashes stuck to my cheek and fake tan, foundation and mascara smeared everywhere.” Yuk! All we can say is: ladies the fresh-faced look suits you!

Oh, and exciting news concerning Geordie Shore – MTV have revealed that we don’t have to wait until the second series to get a fix of those hilarious lads and lasses – there’s a two-part special due to air TONIGHT at 10pm!

Yes, Charlotte, Gary, Vicky, Holly, Jay, James, Greg and Sophie will star in two ‘unmissable summer specials’ – as the gang are let loose on party capital Magaluf. We. can’t. wait. Check out the promo trailer for ‘Geordie Shore: Magaluf Madness’ here!

Geordie Finishing School For Girls: More Reality Than Show!

When I heard that there was a new show that was going to bring together people from Chelsea’s affluent King’s Road and Newcastle’s notorious Bigg Market I assumed it would be another flimsy reality TV offering.  It would seem however that I am wrong as Geordie Finishing School for Girls appears to be more of […]

When I heard that there was a new show that was going to bring together people from Chelsea’s affluent King’s Road and Newcastle’s notorious Bigg Market I assumed it would be another flimsy reality TV offering.  It would seem however that I am wrong as Geordie Finishing School for Girls appears to be more of a social experiment which pairs up four girls who have attended some of the UK’s top public schools with four Geordie girls who are the same age as them.

We have all watched the docu-soap type shows Geordie Shore and Made in Chelsea and now we are faced with the actual harsh reality of the difference between the lifestyles of the two places.  The privileged Londoners spent ten days living on a deprived Tyneside estate and encountering lifestyles they had never imagined.  They were given £59 each to live on for their entire time their which is the equivalent to what they would receive in Jobseeker’s Allowance.

Events promoter Lucy was shocked at the thought of ‘surviving’ for ten days on £59 when she typically spends that on breakfast alone at the Bluebird Café on the King’s Road in Chelsea.  As much as these shows highlight the poverty in areas of the UK it also shows the indulgent lifestyles that other people are simply used to and how ignorant those living the high life can be!

It would be easy to make assumptions about both sets of people, but isn’t that what this type of show is all about?  Breaking those assumptions by putting people into situations that are out of their comfort zone!  With many people saying that Geordie Shore was shameful and indicated a loss to Geordie pride, it seems that the girls in this show may claw some of it back.  The girls are all trying to have a better life and do not want a life living on benefits, they are not all just about a lifestyle of partying.

One of the Geordie girls Makylea said “When I met Fiona, Lucy, Fi and Steph, they seemed so lucky, it was hard not be wonder why my life’s been so hard by comparison.  It’s not just the money they have that makes me envy them, but their loving families.  I haven’t spoken to my own mother for years and have no family support at all.”

It will certainly be an interesting watch so tune in to BBC3 on Tuesday at 9pm to watch Geordie Finishing School for Girls!

Jersey Shore Season 4: Defacing Da Vinci And MTV’s Crackdown!

So we all know that the Jersey Shore cast filmed their new season in the lovely Florence in Italy but what we didn’t expect to see was Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa with a pair of Snooki style sunglasses on or Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam fist-bumping God!  Only would Jersey Shore ‘deface’ such famous European […]

So we all know that the Jersey Shore cast filmed their new season in the lovely Florence in Italy but what we didn’t expect to see was Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa with a pair of Snooki style sunglasses on or Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam fist-bumping God!  Only would Jersey Shore ‘deface’ such famous European works of art to promote their show!

It has been a turbulent few series for the show with many fights, tears and tantrums!  Let’s not forget as well the many walk outs on the show even though Angelina is the only one who has actually left for good.  MTV have now decided not to tolerate any more walkouts from the cast and are trying to regain some of their authority that they seem to have lost as the show becomes increasingly successful.

Only a few weeks ago it was thought that the cast may have been replaced as a result of their diva behaviour and ever increasing pay cheques!  Only two weeks ago Vinny stormed out of the house and it was reported that Mike “the situation” threatened to quit last week too.  I’m not  surprised MTV has had enough and has decided to impose a one-strike rule so that if anyone else walks out the rest of their contract will be terminated and they will be fired!

Surely this will put an end to the strops and walk outs as I doubt none of them really want to walk away from Jersey Shore!  I bet their egos wouldn’t allow it!  We love the show for all its drama, huge personalities and even the tackiness! (Especially the tackiness, but shh don’t tell anyone!)  Bring on season 4 because we just can’t wait to see how the people of Florence react to them!

Why we love Jersey Shore:

Dirty Sexy Things Episode 2: What’s Missing?

Dirty Sexy Things is back on our screens again for the second time to give us an insight into the world of modelling.  This week some of the models are off to Paris so it should be interesting!  ‘Should be’ being the key word there. I don’t understand the concept of the show.  It’s as […]

Dirty Sexy Things is back on our screens again for the second time to give us an insight into the world of modelling.  This week some of the models are off to Paris so it should be interesting!  ‘Should be’ being the key word there.

I don’t understand the concept of the show.  It’s as if it is missing the normal part of a public vote off or some sort of commentary.  For years we have watched shows like America’s Next Top Model, Britain’s Next Top Model and Project Runway that have involved the world of modelling and fashion so it’s not like we just don’t like the subject matter!  There just seems to be something missing!

Yes the aim of the show is to expose the reality behind the so-called glamorous industry but it is quite simply a bit dull.  Woop-dee-doo it is real life, but sorry that’s not really what we want from a TV show like this.  Surely they have realised by now that the reality show/docu-soap/real-fake show concept works when there are some crazy characters and a world or lifestyle that most of us can only imagine (good or bad!)  Take Made In Chelsea for example.  Why do people watch it?  Purely to see what a rich London lifestyle is like with some crazy (but brilliant) posh characters.  Or look at Geordie Shore.  Completely the opposite from the M.I.D lot but equally as watchable to see a lifestyle so very different from our own.

So what do we get from Dirty Sexy Things?  Yes they are models, but they aren’t offering us anything spectacular.  Half the time we are basically watching people go to job interviews as that’s what castings are really.  Then there is what seems a half-hearted effort to include the usual drunken antics, flirting and individually filmed segments in which they make horrible, catty remarks about their co-stars.  (We use the word ‘stars’ loosely!)  Overall though, not a patch on its predecessors!

Dirty – no.  Sexy – no. Things – yeah, ok but that’s about it really!

Blueghhhh:

Dirty Sexy Things Episode 1: £200 A Month On Underwear?!

Now that Made In Chelsea and Geordie Shore have left our screens I was rather excited to see that a new show was headed our way.  Dirty Sexy Things follows leading fashion photographer Perou and 8 models as they create a collection of photographs for an exhibition.  The show lets us see what the modelling world is really like and what it is like to live in it.

I don’t know if it was just because it was the first episode but I thought it was a bit of a weird show.  I was waiting for something spectacular to happen and it sadly never did.  As it was the first one they were introducing all the characters: Jesse, BB, Jay, Rob, Ocean, Ariella, Charlotte and Jessye B.  Yes, that’s right someone with the name Ocean!  So the models are introduced to us all and I already have my favourites!  (Charlotte, Jessye B and Jay!)

The others don’t come across very well.  Rob the beefcake seems rather arrogant and we find out that he spends £200 a month on new underwear.  Who on earth needs that many?  What is he doing with them?  Very strange.  Then there is BB which stands for Black Beauty who is trying to juggle careers in both modelling and dancing.  He moans most of the time he is on our screens about having to travel and get up early so he can dance for Alexandra Burke as well as do his modelling.  Sorry but I have no sympathy for you.  If you don’t like it, don’t do it!  Simple as that!

The photo shoot they have to take part in this week is a lingerie shoot outside on the streets of London.  As they run around in their teeny tiny pants, Perou is there in his sunglasses shouting and taking photos and then they all hop back on to their bus almost as if it was a school trip. (But with less clothes!)

I will be intrigued to watch the next episode as I don’t really know what to think after the first one.  I neither hated it nor loved it; it was just a bit bland.  It definitely has potential though so bring on the next episode in which they visit Paris!  Lucky things!!!

Geordie Shore Episode 6: The Final Episode = Arguing And Heartbreak!

On Monday we waved goodbye to Made In Chelsea, and now it is the turn of the one and only Geordie Shore.  Boo!  The two shows couldn’t be more different from the loud, in your face Geordies to the refined and wealthy Londoners.  They will both be sadly missed even if it was just to […]

On Monday we waved goodbye to Made In Chelsea, and now it is the turn of the one and only Geordie Shore.  Boo!  The two shows couldn’t be more different from the loud, in your face Geordies to the refined and wealthy Londoners.  They will both be sadly missed even if it was just to watch (and mock) their bizarre and crazy lifestyles.

In true Geordie Shore style the final episode of the series was full of arguing, drinking, arguing, tasching on yes you guessed it more arguing.  Holly splits up with her boyfriend which is no surprise after she has continually cheated on him throughout the time she spent in the house.  However it is when she keeps saying that she is going to leave and Jay tells her that no one cares and that since she returned he didn’t like her that things really kicked off.  Shock horror Jay and Vicky start arguing because Vicky thinks there was no need to be so harsh to Holly and “kick her when she’s already down”.  We have watched this pair arguing for the past six weeks, something I must admit I will not miss.  They really stepped it up for the last episode anyway with Vicky spitting in Jay’s face and him then throwing his drink over her.  Charming.

Poor charlotte confesses her feelings for Gaz after weeks of pretending she didn’t care (she didn’t have us fooled though!)  Gaz doesn’t want a relationship and even though he promised he wouldn’t, he brings another girl back to his room that he shares with Charlotte.  Awkward much?!  It is not surprising when Charlotte is really upset about it the next day too after pouring her heart out to the lothario himself.

Not a very happy end to the series for any of them really.  I’m sure when they return for their special summer shows that were recently filmed in Magaluf that all will have been forgotten and I bet that Jay and Vicky will be tasching on some more! I hate to think what mischief they will get up to in Magaluf as they already cause enough chaos in their home town! I will of course be watching the show though, these reality shows get addictive as you can’t help but want to know what on earth they are going to do next!  Ah, what will we do without them all?

Fear not Geordie Shore fans, I guess they will be back soon enough!  Magaluf on the other hand… prepare yourself!!!

This song just about sums up our prediction for their Maga trip:

Jersey Shore Cast To Be Replaced Due To Diva Demands?!

Wow we have been so caught up in the world of Geordie Shore we had kind of forgotten about the original Jersey Shore.  Over the weekend rumours were flying about that the cast are apparently to be replaced by some newbies for the next series of Jersey Shore much to the disgust and outrage of many fans of the show.

The cast members; The Situation, Snooki, J-Woww, Pauly D, Vinnie, Sammi, Ronnie and Deena were reportedly going to get the boot as a result of their ever growing demands and salaries.  Aww don’t do it MTV the reason the show is a hit is because of the cast!  They have just not long finished filming the fourth series of Jersey Shore in Italy and have definitely caused quite a stir with the locals.  It wasn’t surprising to hear the cast had been fighting in the street, chatting up locals and getting into trouble with the police.

Jersey Shore had provided a much needed boost to MTV’s ratings which is why they then caved in to demands made by the cast which sees them raking in up to $100,000 each per episode.  Yes, you read that right, $100,000 to be filmed partying hard with your friends and living in a luxury house.  Poor things, what a hard life.

So where would the show be without the over-the-top and hilarious characters like Mike ‘The Situation’ and of course Nicole aka ‘Snooki’?  I think it would be a huge mistake to axe the original cast as the replacements would probably be poorer versions and wannabe’s of the current cast.  That is what normally happens when a replacement cast are introduced on shows like this and it’s no fun to watch.  Although we could so without Sammi and Ronnie’s painful constant arguing!

Oh MTV please don’t replace them, it wouldn’t be the same without them!!!

Laura Robson, UK Tennis Star But More Importantly A Teen!

At only seventeen years old and already playing in Wimbledon, Laura Robson is set to be a UK tennis superstar.  At 14 she won the Wimbledon Junior Girls’ Championship and has reached the final in other junior tournaments as well.  As someone who has largely been defined by tennis her entire life, it’s interesting to […]

At only seventeen years old and already playing in Wimbledon, Laura Robson is set to be a UK tennis superstar.  At 14 she won the Wimbledon Junior Girls’ Championship and has reached the final in other junior tournaments as well.  As someone who has largely been defined by tennis her entire life, it’s interesting to look at the girl behind the player for a change.

We are used to all the usual tennis lot looking quite serious and to be honest not that much fun.  You wouldn’t be rushing to invite them on a night out that’s for sure!  Oh how I wish Andy Murray would just smile once in a while.  Teen star Laura on the other hand looks a right laugh.  You just have to look at her Twitter page to get a feel for her personality and it is a reminder that yes she is a pro tennis player but she is also a teenager as well!

Whilst preparing for the WTA Pre-Wimbledon party she posted a picture of her new nails that were suitably decorated with Union Jack details.  Not quite something you can imagine the William’s sisters doing.  She then commented about the dress she was wearing for the party saying “I love my Alexander McQueen dress but it’s extremely difficult to sit down in.  So I’m very awkwardly perched on a stool.”  For once it’s nice to hear someone speak the truth about what they are wearing.  I would prefer it if celebs moaned about getting sore feet from wearing heels all day.  If normal people struggle to wear them for one night out, how on earth can they bear to wear them all day long without a single moan?!  It’s just not normal.

Laura also seems to like to take part in internet phenomenon planking and seems to have a great sense of humour.  It’s just nice to see a normal side to her instead of just the player that is presented to us at other times.  She also said on Twitter that she loves controversial TV show Geordie Shore and that she thinks it is “amaaaaaazing!”  Something that we ourselves love too.  I don’t know what it is, but its just interesting to see a different side to sports people because they are normally so intensely focused on their sport that it seems like a rare glimpse into a secret world.

Well lets hope for big things for Laura and hope that she doesn’t change because we like what we see!  Fingers crossed this is just the start for her!!!
