Poor Paris ...

Gee, poor little rich girl Paris Hilton has had a bad year ... her conviction for drinking and driving, and subsequent "jail" time, followed by a rough ride in the media ... and NOW her Grandfather has decided to give 97% of his fortune (estimated to be close to $2.3 BILLION) to a family foundation aimed at bettering the lives of the less fortunate.

Now she really has reason to cry ... she may have to work for her money like the rest of us ... she may have to actually rely on her talents and abilities rather than sipping from the champagne flutes and silver platters she's been used to ... she may find out the world isn't some big unending party ...

Betch'ya she's not thinking Grandpa's decision is "hot" ...

Poor Paris ... welcome to the real world ...

And then just for good measure toss in the latest installment of the continuing nightmare that is the Spears Family Diary with 16 year old Jamie announcing her pregnancy and you've had a damned fine week for celebrities ... I can't help but think the blogger who said - "somewhere in Arkansas there is another family watching the implosion of the Spears girls and are saying "Dangit, we could be celebrities if we was pretty ..." may not be far from the truth ...

Maybe there is a profound lesson in ALL of this for the rest of us ... I wonder if we'll ever realize our so called "Stars" and the life styles they represent are incredibly shallow ...

Maybe one day ...

I don't think celebrities are any more shallow or troubled than many people. The only difference is, they have their weaknesses exposed in public.

I feel pity for these poor lost girls. I don't know if their parents raised them right! Maybe they are just repeating the sins of the parents. Except publicly and shamefully and horridly.
Even Brangenilina strike me as peculiarly odd with their manic adoptions. Ask me about international adoptions for the average joe! Not easy at all.
I think Celebrities are sad, and the are the child celebrities, forced by their parents, into the celbrity circle, forced by who else? Their "loving parents."
Like the pitiful JonBenet Ramsay.

Sad...

Oh, and by the way, I think the Hiltons can afford the donation, they are unbelievably wealthy and all Paris has to do is sell a few more clothing lines etc. I think this is a last ditch good will effort on the Hilton's behalf to buy positive facetime with the American Public.
Watch my words become verified in the next 3 months...

While the Hiltons and the Spears are being "pitied" by many, our youth are emulating them. We should be piting our youth who find this kind of behavior "celebrity worthy."
