Andy Warhol had it right when he said everyone will be famous for 15 minutes. Here are some celebrities whose time in the spotlight is fading fast.
Paris Hilton was the first reality show participant to parlay her momentary fame into an annoying uber-brand. After an album, movie roles, jail, lawsuits, drug busts, and sex tapes, the public grew snarky, then got irked by her constant over-exposure. Now many people are asking, “Paris who?”
Will people still be as interested in Kim Kardashian when she’s a married forty year old with a designer baby or two? After all, Kim and her sisters are famous for being young, rich and beautiful. That will get you in front of the public eye, but it won’t keep you there as youth fades.
The Cast of “Jersey Shore”
Snooki, The Situation and the rest of their Jersey Shore castmates still retain the “most obnoxious” banner in reality TV, despite the best efforts of of various Real Housewives. While the NJ quasi-celebs initial fame has quelled, orange-hued Snooki and her roomies are set to invade Italy for the show’s fourth season. Like the Kardashians, the Jersey Shore cast members don’t have much to offer the entertainment world. Once the drunken antics end for this bunch, they may have to hit the unemployment line.
