Never watched Towie either, do not even know any of the names, bit the gossip and the kind of people who watch it gives you a good idea of why such downmarket people watch it.

I think it's one of those reality type programs, which are not reality but edited and produced just like any other tv program.

And it stands for The Only Way Is Essex, hence TOWIE.

Where is she getting all these thousands to spend on almost identical earrings?

^^ easter-lol New ones!
They can' t be new can they? I mean they exactly look like the too many earring she has, I didn' t think they were new. Also I didn' t know the blue topaz overpriced Kiki she wore were new either, because they all look the same

^^ I don't believe she buys them, I think jewelers lend her pieces to get publicity.

I was thinking that. So many pairs, and all so similar, so boring.  At 3,500 GBP a go what a waste of taxpayer money if she actually does buy them.  I personally don´t know anyone who would want all those earrings, virtually all the same.  Says a lot about her doesn´t it.

^^ I suspect the same. Some pairs she wears very often and I'm sure those are hers, but many she wears once or twice and never again, I think those are on loan. Though I'm also sure she gets them for free. So freebies & loans. But why not loan from Cartier? Boodles? Garrard? Asprey? And so so many others who do such magnificent pieces and many of them are linked to the Windsors and have royal warrants... Maybe those maisons refused to do business with K?

Those houses likely do not want to hand over such priceless gems for a mere appearance or Kate's day to day pleasure. Those gems are worth millions (when they are not appraised at hundreds of thousands) and their craftsmanship is faultless. They don't work like fiends to basically hand it over for her amusement. Royal warrants is one thing, but they do have standards of association. Kate has designer names, but I do think that she's getting a lot of it on loan. I remember seeing an interview with a milliner in his shop and it showed a hat that Kate had worn to Zara's wedding; that hat people thought she had bought was in fact on loan and I am certain that she's been borrowing other outfits and accessories as well. I do believe that Kate has been bitter about her lack of bijoux for her own keeping and I do think she's frustrated that despite being so close, she is in fact as far away from all that material pleasures.

^ I'm thinking the same, too precious to loan to her, even though such houses do that. Wasn't she reputed to give loaned stuff back in a terrible state? Wasn't that pre-wedding or am I mixing her up with someone else?
Now that you mention hats, accessories & clothes, yeah, those are also very likely loans (&freebies).
She's as far away from the good stuff as the plebs she hides from.

I am certain that she's boiling in frustration; imagine being so close and being unable to wallow in the luxuries and the jewels are in the Tower, she has a title, but she can't keep them and can't have the ability to just go and demand the jewels be handed over to her. She's not going to balls or places that require a full suite and so she is basically suffering as all of it is dangled so near her.

As a history major, surely she should have known that those jewels would never, technically, belong to her.  *sarcasm*.  She also should have known the millisecond that her betrothed put another woman's ring on her finger that he had no intention of opening his wallet for her and draping her in adoration expressed by jewelry.  Plus, she doesn't even know how to wear it properly so why bother in the first place?  She's a real wash-out on all fronts, to date.

^ ^ Which Tower? If you mean the Tower of London the only jewels kept there are the Crown Jewels, which are worn at Coronations and the opening of Parliament. Crowns, the sceptre, orb etc. They are on permanent show there, for Britons and tourists.

The Queen's other jewellery is kept in the vaults at BP and/or Windsor and possibly her bank. She doesn't keep any of her tiaras, rings, necklaces, bracelets etc at the Tower of London.

If I were Kate, I would be inventing new events all the time to be able to wear the bling, in addition to going to the opera as often as I can, when I am not going to the ballet.

^I think she used up all of her ambition and energy snagging William.  Plus, she's lazy.  She expects things to just fall in her lap at this point.  Clueless.  So clueless.
