If I Could Live Like a Celebrity

I love watching reality shows. Some of my favourites are The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE), The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and The Rachel Zoe Project. I was also a huge fan of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and all their other spin-off shows, but I have recently gone off those.




Reality TV or Trashy TV as some of us like to call it is so relatable, and I guess that is the reason why they are loved by millions. You get to see these celebs living their lives, in their homes doing regularly stuff and it becomes addictive. I don’t watch reality tv shows as much as I used to some years (hardly watch TV these days) but I still play catch up on a few and watch more movies instead.

I am a huge fan of James Bond films, I have seen many of them including the latest Spectre. I like the flashy lifestyle of James Bond in the movies. From his expensive suit and shoes, to his cars, sunglasses and watches. The James Bond character is definitely living the life!

I recently came across this Licence to Chill infographic on  and I found it very insightful. It shows off the very lavish lifestyle of James Bond, Martin McFly and Jay Gatsby. I found the figures alarmingly. Who knew a one bedroom flat in Chelsea London would cost £700,000? Or the Omega Seamaster 300 watch would cost £4600? But then again, I am not too surprised, this is exactly how a A list celebrity lifestyle looks like.

I wouldn’t mind living a James Bond lifestyle for a bit, exclusing the fights and violence. I will be in it for the lavish bit only.

What are your thouughts? Are you alarmed by the costs of stuff on this infographic? Which of the 3 characters on the infographic is your favourite?

NeNe Leakes Accused Of Theft


The famous reality TV star from The Real Housewives of Atlanta – NeNe Leakes, has been accused of design theft.

NeNe Leakes is in the middle of a bit of a mess with Tess in the Trap, an indie t-shirt design brand accusing her of stealing the brand’s t-shirt design.  Here is what a representative from Tess in the Trap had to say:

While we can’t stop her from selling a Girl Bye tee, we did legally stop her from selling a design that looked exactly like ours. She has now changed the font completely and is selling her own version of the shirt, which was completely fine with us until she had her lawyers send us a cease and desist letter saying that we had no right to have her shirt taken down and since she’s more popular and made the saying “Girl Bye” famous that she has the exclusive right to use it on shirts and we don’t, so we need to take ours down. NO ACTUAL legal defense other than, she’s more famous.”

Below, NeNe Leakes is seen wearing Tess in the Trap’s t-shirt on the left and then her own design on the right.


This looks to me like she copied the design, simple. This is way more than an inspiration here. I have heard NeNe say ‘Girl,bye’ a couple of times on The Real Housewives of Atlanta,  but that doesn’t mean she owns the phrase and it doesn’t give her the right to copy it so blatantly. That said, it looks like NeNe has gone as far as trademarking the phrase. I just hope this is all a lie. I respect NeNe too much for her to steal a common indie t-shirt design. What do you think?
