There’s A New Form of ADD in Hollywood These Days and It’s Spreading By The Millisecond: It’s Called Attention Demanding Disorder!
Whereas the celebs of not-so-long-ago used to flee the paparazzi and plead that they were desperately trying to protect their private lives … the NEW celebrities of 2010, don’t believe in having private lives at all.
Every moment of their lives, and we mean every last moment — from Kourtney Kardashian giving birth on Keeping Up With The Kardashians to Bethanny Frankel peeing in a champagne bucket just moments before her wedding on Bethenny Getting Married, to Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi pointing fingers and calling each other “liar” and “fame whore,” on The Bachelor Breakup special- is just another guaranteed-to-get-ratings moment to turn the cameras on.
This new breed of Hollywood celebs is even proud to acknowledge that they are “famewhores!”
“I want every kind of press,” he says. “She believes in bad press.” Well, in that case, Heidi must have a different definition of bad press than most of us, since that’s the Heidi who underwent ten plastic surgeries in one day, including F-cup breast implants, and then blabbed on People‘s cover, plus numerous TV shows about every last detail of the experience.
Now, Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol and her baby daddy Levi Johnston have jumped onto the famehog bandwagon. The couple reportedly pocketed $100,000 to “announce” their re-engagement on the cover of Us Weekly, BEFORE doing the normal and courteous thing ie telling either of their mothers. And word is — they’re shopping a reality show about their newlywed life. Why not?
“Why not,” actually, is barely a question these days. After Vienna sold the story of HER dysfunctional engagement to Jake to Star magazine, for $90,000 BEFORE even phoning to breakup with him , a new level of ADD had been born.
It was a pretty competitive landscape already in the “famehog” world. When a non-reality star like Jennifer Love Hewitt appears on The George Lopez Show to discuss her “vajazzling” — that’s adding jewels to her “va-ja-jay” — you really need to go to the next level and the next, to get attention these days.
Especially when sex tapes like Kendra Wilkinson‘s and NJ Housewives’ Danielle Staub‘s are practically becoming a dime a dozen. And Kendra’s new book, Sliding Into Home, is #4 on the New York Times bestseller list, probably because she reveals the intimate details of her sex orgies with Hugh Hefner.
It almost makes Katy Perry with her glittery whipped cream-spurting bras, Lady Gaga‘s finger-waving bikini visits to the Mets and Yankees ball games, and Miley Cyrus‘ underage barely-there-wear, seem downright modest!
