I am a huge fan of Emma Willis. I love her hair, she is one of the few women I know that looks amazingly good rocking a short hair. She also has great style and carriage. I enjoy watching her hosting the Celebrity Big Brother show. She is one of the reasons why I watch the show.

I am yet to read this issue but I am definitely going to grab a copy once I spot one. Emma’s interview and other features sound very juicy.

I would love to know more about Emma. She is one of those women I admire and like but don’t much about. I see her as a very private person, so this issue is a good way to get to know a bit more about the biggest female presenter in the UK.

In her interview with Cosmopolitan, Willis opened up about her career – the initial struggles and her current presenting gigs, her relationship with her husband – Matt, and everything else in between.

 

On the secret to her 12 years relationship with Matt:

“We like each other,” says Emma. “We have a lot of fun and neither of us thinks of ourselves as grown-ups. We’re also both working class people who are like, ‘Sh*t, this is good, we’ve done alright.’ He keeps me young and I keep him sensible.”

Awww, love the sound of their relationship.

 

On landing the Big Brother presenting gig:

“I didn’t audition,” she says. “When my agent called to tell me I’d been offered it, I was like, ‘What? Are you sure they’ve got the right Emma? Did they mean Emma Forbes because I’ve never even met them?'”

 

I find this so inspiring. Hard work does pay off eventually.

 

What do you think of Emma Willis on the cover of Cosmo?

Are Celebrities Paid to Appear on Reality Shows

I’M A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is currently on and I am loving it. I enjoy watching celebrities living the rough and crazy live in the jungle. It is good entertainment, and I am sure many of you enjoy seeing the cool celebs outside of their comfort zone. I know I enjoy seeing the celebrities in the jungle. Just like I enjoy seeing them being stuck in a house with other celebs in Celebrity Big Brother. Taking a break from work to watch the clips on TV adds a bit of fun to my life.

In the early days, I use to wonder if the celebrities ever got paid to drop everything in their “real life” to go on a reality show. The very busy celebs would likely lose some money while in the jungle, so it would make sense for them to get paid to appear on the show. The curious me did some digging around, and I came across an article – How Much Are The Celebs Paid? on Conversations About Her website, and that pretty much answered all my questions.

Celebrities are offered a huge amount (depending on how successful and popular they are) to appear on reality shows. The celebrity fees were uncovered thanks to Unreality TV and Cash Lady. Just take a look at the infographic below.

I am amazed at how high some of the figures are, just look at Spencer Matthews, famous for playing himself in the hit reality show – Made in Chelsea, being paid 300,000 to appear on I’M A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! However, there is a rumour that he walked out of the camp with nothing after his 3 day stint.

Apart from the crazy high fees, I am also amazed at how varied the fees are as well. Just look at Lewis Bloor, famous for playing himself on the ITV hit show – The Only Way is Essex, he was paid £50,000 to appear on Celebrity Big Brother according to this infographic, and then we have Stephen Bear (who I have never heard of), known for appearing on Ex on the Beach and Shipwrecked, being paid only £12,000. It just confirms the fact that reality show is all about popularity, almost like the blogging industry.

Avner Brodsky, co-founder of Cash Lady commented on these findings –

“It’s surprising to see the figures the networks spend bringing our favourite shows to air. It’s something that we, as consumers, don’t really think about when we plonk down on our sofa on an evening.”

 

I always knew that the celebrities would get paid crazy money to appear on reality shows. It is a business and they are a Brand at the end of the day. They won’t drop everything to appear on a reality show with the hope of winning the prize money. They would have to be compensated for their time. But I never guessed the fees would be this crazy and varied in some instances. I guess that explains the ‘bad blood’ between some of the contestants on the show some times.

What do you think of these fees? Are you as surprised as I am?
