Do you think it would be hard work to be "famous" today, like the Kardashians, Paris Hiltion, etc.

Constantly on display - of course they want it that way - but wouldn't it be a lot of work?

I think it would be disheartening to receive derisive comments from those who did not share your enthusiasm for being "famous."

I just asked Pancake how she feels being so famous and she responded with a yawn.

It is a lot of work, it is their entire job. I suppose it fills some void or need -- for whom or why, I'll never understand. It's a shallow world they live in but it seems to pay well.

(btw, I hope I used "whom" correctly.) {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

I once watched a Anna Nichole show and she was getting prepared for an award show. Something like a 'day in the life of' moment. The decisions about hair, make up, gowns, borrowed jewelry, agents, her home life and all the brouhaha. In the end, I felt sorry for her because I realized that's all she had, the persona that was created. No substance, no aim, no education to fall back on, just a big empty world of big hair and a s3 x image.

Stop fighting over who created the world and fight against the people who are destroying it.

If you enjoy your job, it does not feel like work.

I might could get used to having my nails, hair, and makeup done for me every day...never mind a stylist for my clothes...and probably a cook and maid besides.

I am certain it must be hard work. It also must be nice to reap the rewards of a career that got its start from inappropriate videos and not talent.

To me, it would be the worst thing in the world and I can't actually believe people WANT that. I would also hate being Kate.

I am a very private person and I cannot imagine people following you everywhere and taking your picture, going through your garbage, interrupting you when you are out with family and taking photos/videos of you with their phone and coming up to you to tell you your outfit or hair is terrible. That would be no kind of life at all for me.

It seems from watching the Kardashian show that these girls are fairly busy though. They have 3 stores and looked pretty involved in them. Plus it looks like they are doing a lot of other stuff and are always flying around the country and abroad. I don't know about you but I think it is exhausting being on a plane and I can't imagine having travelled over 10 hours and then having to get right off the plane and go right to work.

I wish there was a way to know you're in the good old days before you've actually left them. Narddog

Not at all. It's very easy to be famous, but it has to be for the right reasons. Any other 'fame' is a detriment.

Minky, have these people actually ever done anything that warrants their fame?

Today I heard about this lovely young woman from Canada who was helt captive for way over a year in Somalia (I may be wrong about the country). She was helping the hungry and needy people there. She said that every conceivable cruelty has been done to her. She went home after her release, but is again back helping people.

These are the people who should be famous not the others.

I agree with Clem but NO I don't think being Paris would be particularly taxing.

They are famous for their big b*tts, their big mouths,and doing anything for a buck. NO, Thankyou!

I can only walk in the high heels for a few minutes before my tootsies start to hurt. It would be hard for me unless I could sit down every few feet.

It's their calling. Everything is done for them - hairdressers travel with them, dog walkers travel with them, designers are giving them free clothes, shoes, purses, jewelry. It also helps when your family is involved - so you're not out there by yourself. They don't work all the time - they have lots of free time to vacation in the Caribbean. There are many jobs that the average person does - that are a lot harder and they barely make a living.

So true that there are many more difficult ways to earn a living. I just look at the celebrity photo sites sometimes and think, Man, having to do all of that every single day would be tiring.

But, not if you have lived your entire life hoping to do so I am sure.

Maybe if I were more into makeup and hair I would get it but I am a natural beauty {#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

No, not really. It would be much harder to be famous back in the old days, when people had "real" talent. They didn't have all the plastic surgery, lipo, hair transplants,weaves, etc. Those people, generally speaking, were famous for their talent and star quality. They worked at their beauty by dieting, exercising, make-up, grooming, and coaching.

They were not just famous for being famous. Or because daddy was a Hilton or a famous attorney, or sports star, etc.

Hard being famous? --- nah!!! They should try really working for a living --- now that's hard!!!!

I don't see how it would be difficult. All they have to do to boost their interest quotient is behave badly in public. How hard could that be? {#emotions_dlg.w00t}
