Today’s Question: What’s Wrong With Being a “Fame-Whore?”

Written by , Posted in General

Today is a new day, and it’s therefore time for a new pet-peave.  Both Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are throwing the word “famewhore” at each other, amidst Bristol joining Dancing With the Stars and Levi’s bid for Mayor of Wasilla.  I think it’s fair to say they are both famewhores.  But this isn’t the first time I’ve seen famewhore name calling.  Remember when douchey bachelor Jake Pavelka called Vienna a famewhore? Last time I checked Jake, there are many ways to meet “the one,” which don’t include starring in an ABC television show, and crying over a balcony like a woman.  The truth is, just about everyone on the planet is a “famewhore,” and it’s only a rare few that have both fame and talent.  So what’s wrong with a blind quest for fame?  If you have ever gone to a show taping, you will see the crew, working tirelessly for an inordinate amount of hours, while the actors just loaf around and wait for their moment to robotically spit out their lines.  I realize that acting is an art-form and I don’t mean to insult it.  That being said, it would certainly be a nice life to get paid an excessive amount of money to sit around in your trailer while everyone else is doing the heavy lifting.
