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 www.chillmoney.ie  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?

Style Icon: Billie Faiers

The stunning Billie Faiers is a Style Icon. I have admired her style and that of her sister – Samantha Faiers, since their TOWIE days, and I still love their fashion sense. I love Billie’s chic fashion sense. She brings her style game on every time, and she hasn’t allowed her current baby bump slow her down at all.

I love going through her snaps on Instagram. I can literally spend the whole day doing that if life lets me. I can see myself wearing almost every piece I see her rocking. I think we have similar taste in fashion. I guess that is why you are reading this post.

But now seriously, it should come as no surprise that Billie Faiers is a style icon. This woman is a confirmed fashion lover with the successful family’s fashion boutique business, her clothing range and her many stylish outfit, she is style goals!

I do miss seeing her on TOWIE. Her style was one of the reasons why I was so into TOWIE. She looks so good in everything!

I wish I could be a fly on the wall of Billie Faiers’ wardrobe, just so I can have a look at her entire collection. She is always rocking some really stylish pieces, and she makes every piece look so cool.

I also like the fact that she mixes regular high street pieces with more expensive designer pieces, and she nails it every time.

Here are some of her style dos and don’ts

Well, I think it’s important for everyone to have their own individual style and look but, most importantly, they should dress for their shape. It’s really important to wear what suits your figure. Don’t wear things that might not be flattering just because they’re fashionable or on trend.

 

I agree with this style tip. Dress for your figure and not trend.

 

What do you think of Billie Faiers’ style? Are you a fan?

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?
