The Only Way Is Essex

Postby deldaisy » Sat Feb 19, 2011 7:05 pm

Since everyone seems to be making a new thread here every two minutes....

I have seen a programme here on cable. See above.

Is this for real? It looks so scripted. And if it IS a parody or a take-off of a particular type of person... yeah yeah the "speak" is ridiculous.... Do women there really wear that much make-up? I mean in general? My teen was wondering.... so was I actually... And would a regular guy REALLY pay tens of thousands for a watch????

Not seen the program but if it is about Essex then the answers probably are

yes
Essex is a parody
yes
yes
and yes to the watch as well

I was once in a restaurant in Essex and at the next table was a classic Essex pairing of girl in short skirt (well more like a pelmet), tight silk top and white high heels, probably very little else and the guy who was wearing the required white shirt open too far down, tight trousers with heavy gold bracelet and necklace and I almost choked on my soup when she quite clearly told him that if they stopped off at the jewelers on the way back home and he got her the ring she fancied that whatever he fancied was available next on the menu.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
