X Factor wants the souls of your children

We felt very disturbed watching X Factor at the weekend.  All this chair swapping is not good. The talent show is playing with the minds of young people.  It is bad enough that the contestants buy into the extremely unlikely chance of becoming a success from this show.  From the few notable successes from this program (namely One Direction), and a few other acts, thousands and thousands of people are disappointed.  To really make it in the music industry is very rare, you need to be able to sing like Adele or Jessie J, or sing and look like Rihanna, and none of these stars went the talent show route.  The ‘reality’ show is edited to within a inch of its life, ruining any real spontaneity.  We don’t know if the judges were acting although they probably were, but this has not done Cheryl or Mel B any good, it has just made them look like heartless bitches.  Cheryl seems to have gone from a nice girl to a spoilt woman, who has been to famous for to long, and has lost touch with reality.  The audience were so wound up they were baying for blood, all they needed was to send in the lions. Girls in the audience were crying over boy bands they had known for literally five minuets, the show was madness, how far will this show go for ratings.  We have always been big fans of X Factor but on Saturday night we will be switching over to Strictly.

The rise of the celebrity offspring models

It would seem that to become a top model you now need to have been born into a famous celebrity family.  The small chance of being genetically perfect, ie tall thin and incredibly beautiful, might not now be enough to make it in the highly competitive world of the model industry.  Recently we have seen the rise and rise of models from famous families. Notably with Kendal Jenner at the forefront of this phonemenon.  Today at Sonia Rykiel’s catwalk show it was awash with celebrity family models. Of course Kendal was their looking amazing.  Also Elizabeth and Georgia May Jagger daughters of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall both made an appearance.  Another relative of a Rolling Stone model Ella Richards, granddaughter of Keith Richards walked the catwalk.  Hailey Baldwin, daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin, was also booked to walk in Sonia Ryliel’s show, as was Gigi Hadid, daughter of Mohammed Hidid and Yolandar Foster, who both appear in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  With the exception of Kendal Jenner all the girls mothers were models.  So it could be said that they all have great genetic make ups.  But the glamour and allure of coming from famous families must give these girls the edge over someone from a normal family, not to mention great connections.

Tory Scandal you couldn’t make this up!!

wealthandglamour

On the eve of the Tory Conference, it’s all going tits up over in Birmingham tonight.  The Tories have been hit by a defection and a scandal all in one night.  Firstly the hilariously named Mark Reckless, has defected to the Ukip party.  Cue the name jokes twitter! Reckless by name Reckless by nature, a reckless defection, he has left the Tories with reckless abandonment, etc, etc. And if this wasn’t enough for the Tories to cope with in one night, the scandal that’s followed has just left us open mouthed.  A grown man, a married dad of five, a politician, has been caught sending explicit photos of himself over the internet.  Brooks Newark MP for Braintree has sent explicit photos to an undercover female reporter posing as a young activist.  Why?? How could he have been so stupid, a man in his position? You couldn’t make this shit up.

Ladies of London Uk airing!

We are officially  very excited.  The gorgeous Caroline Stanbury has just posted on Instagram a photo of herself, and two other cast mimageembers of the fabulous show Ladies of London, at ITV studios.  Caroline hashtags other members of the cast saying #backon #ukherewecome #filming and were back!  So at last a UK airing of this fabulous programme.  This is an American made reality show, which is based in London.  We have lost count how many times we have been asked, why is a show about the upmarket London social scene not shown on UK TV.  The reason for this is the show is made by the American channel Bravo.  We used to be able to get Bravo here in England some years ago, but for some reason it was taken off Sky, and is sadly missed by reality TV fans.  So we have had to wait for an English company to buy the programme, and this has been done by ITV.  And you are all in for a treat.  Most of the Ladies are American who live in London and have English Partners.  The few English Ladies of the cast look on with despair, at the exuberance and brashness of the Americans.  This show is glamoroimageus and bitchy, while snobbery and social climbing are all played out against the backdrop of the London Social Calendar.
