Celebrities Who are About Done With Their 15 Minutes of Fame
These days an internet video is capable of making someone a celebrity. There's also reality television, which alone produces a big generation of camera ready stars. These people being in the spotlight so much leads to our being annoyed with certain individuals. For the people listed below, the 15 minutes of fame really needs to be up.
Snooki – This star of Jersey Shore is likely to fade out of popularity quicker than the MTV show. That’s because she’s been put in our faces over and over, almost to the point that it seems like her larger-than-life personality is an act. In other words, we no longer want to hear about her desires to “smush”, eat pickles, and tan.
The Situation, a.k.a. Mike Sorrentino – The stand-out male personality of the Jersey Shore doesn’t have much more to offer now that he’s got his lifestyle and his preferences out there. After JS first aired, Sorrentino inked deals to promote fitness products and made a few TV appearances. That’s about as far as his bankability goes.
Tila Tequila – If her 15 minutes aren’t already up, then the time is definitely close. Tila Tequila has never been famous for good reasons. In fact, a majority of the people who know of her dislike her. It turns out that she first acquired “viral fame” through reaching a record-breaking 1.4 million friends on the social networking site MySpace. It was at this time that Tila went from a visual part of the internet to a real life TV personality. She embarked on a quest to find love with the show “A Shot at Love” on MTV. Viewers quickly grew sick of her antics, and they were equally confused as to why she had gotten her own show. The bisexual reality star would later go out of her way to get media attention, with one example being videos which she broadcasted of herself as she talked about her drug addiction. Tila was also on board to star in VH1's "Celebrity Rehab 4" before she backed out last minute, explaining her decision through one of the many attention-seeking announcements she puts on her website.
Rachel Uchitel – This woman became famous solely because she was a mistress to Tiger Woods. Her face might have been used a bit more than the others since she was not a porn star. Instead, Uchitel worked as a nightclub promoter where she was able to associate with the stars. After the scandal, Rachel appeared on VH1’s “Celebrity Rehab”, which surprisingly added a facet of warmth to her image. Still, she’s still been overplayed in the media and we can’t stand to see her trotting around town as she spends Tiger’s pay-off money.
Heidi Montag – Another example of someone who should’ve been cut off from public view a long time ago. Following her villainous time on The Hills, Heidi Montag has unsuccessfully tried to launch a singing career several times. This comes at the public’s expense, since occasionally we have to see and hear her and Spencer as they attempt to get face time. As many already know, Heidi had a boatload of plastic surgery then expressed regret over changing her physical features.
Kate Gosselin – The moody mother of TLC’s “Jon & Kate Plus 8” remained relevant only because of her and her then-husband’s divorce after the show. It was at this time that people got sick of hearing about her money problems, especially because she received a reported $250,000 per episode.
