TOWIE Star Chloe Sims Fears For Her Safety After Co-Stars Were Attacked
The Only Way Is Essex's Chloe Sims has confessed she fears for her safety since appearing in the show.
The mum-of-one's co-star Lauren Goodger recently had her brand new beauty salon torched, and last year sisters Sam and Billie Faiers were attacked by a gang of girls on a night out.
Chloe, who also has faced jibes from online bullies, told The Star: "I worry about my safety if I'm where people are drinking. They feel confident and people think they know you. It can be intimidating when there are lots of people around you wanting a picture taken.
"I do have security when I do public appearances, but only what the club provide. When first on the show, I worried about mine and (daughter) Madison's safety."
But Chloe, 30, said on the whole she's happy to be part of the ITV2 reality show.
"After my first episode there were so many people gunning for me. I cried afterwards because I thought: 'What have I done? I've got a daughter. It's her I've got to worry about.'
"But for me the positive that's come out of the show has completely outweighed any negatives."
SLIDESHOW: The original TOWIE cast
Kirk's got the rich dad, the swanky sports car and the club... no wonder he's attracting such classy ladies.
Popey possesses possibly the poutiest of all pouts in the land of TOWIE and she's not afraid to use them.
TOWIE's token larger lady brings endless laughs. Not one to sweep things under the rug or avoid the awkward questions, Gemma once asked Greek twins Dino and Georgie if they look at each others penises.
Everyone wants a nan like nanny Pat and everyone wants a bit of her sausage plait.
"Shuuuuuurp!" Harry not only has one of the best catchphrases on the show, he's also on the same level as the girls when it comes to tans, bleached hair and posing.
Mark Wright and James Argent
Mark and Arg, Arg and Mark, The troublesome duo have one of the best bromances reality TV has ever seen - Mark even sat through Arg's colonic irrigation!
Mark's been branded just about every name going when it comes to his alleged philandering, but that hasn't stopped the TOWIE girls going near him. Anyone would think he's the only man in Essex.
Lydia gets credit for having the most tasteful dress sense on the show, think more Chanel and less Agent Provocateur. She's also a hero for putting up with Arg and Mark's bromance. Not one to shy away from a fight, she's pretty good at putting Arg in his place.
TOWIE girls glammed up
See, they <em>can</em> look demure. You've just got to give them a Bafta.
Sam Faiers and Amy Childs
Amy may have left the show for "bigger and better" things, but in our mind she'll always be a TOWIE girl.
Joey Essex and Sam Faiers
Joey Essex, you really can't get more Essex than him. He's also the closest thing to a male Barbie on television at the moment. Here's a rare picture of the "reem" ladies man wearing trousers and not short shorts. We think it's time he faced up to the fact that they're NEVER going to catch on.
It feels like we've seen Lauren cry more times than she's laughed on TOWIE (that will be the ex-boyfriend's fault of course), but here she is doing what she does best - looking pretty in a beautician's.
Jessica Wright and Maria Fowler
Mark's sister Jessica and bubbly Maria know how to party (when the cameras are around).
Plastic fantastic, Chloe's not ashamed to admit all the work she has had done to look <em>so</em> good. Her latest mission involves <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2011/10/25/towie-star-chloe-sims-bum-implants_n_1029986.html" target="_hplink">getting bum implants to improve her "flat screen" derrière. </a>
