These days it seems like getting famous is easier than hooking up with Tiger Woods. You had a baby recently? Did you forget panties? Did you perma-freeze your face? Hey, you’re practically A-list already!
Writing celebrity news every week, I tend to read a lot of it. And there are certain recurring names and faces that have no relevance to anything, are famous for nothing or I’m just plain sick of.
Here are my Top 5 Most Overrated Celebrities, who if I had my way, would fade into obscurity…
5) Heidi Montag
What has Heidi Montag done recently, other than practically every appendage? Are they even still making The Hills? And if they are, how does Heidi star in it? She can’t move her face to exude all that…ya know…emotion and stuff. Plus she’s married to a douche. That should be disqualification enough from the celebrity radar right there.
4) The Entire Cast of Jersey Shore
‘Nuff said, bro.
We’ll give her some credit, because she has made some movies over the years, albeit very bad ones. And she had so much potential! When she re-emerged in Freaky Friday all curvy and red-headed, I thought for sure she was one to watch. Now, coke habits, rehab and some straight-to-DVD releases later, she’s just another face in the crowd. Remember Herbie 2: Fully Loaded? Yeah, neither do we.
This bad-haired baby-mama has been on my radar for way too long. So she’s a parent to multiples, and they’re all pretty cute. That TLC gig was exposure enough, because for the most part it actually had some relevance to her life. Then she has a messy divorce, throws in some hair extensions and all of a sudden she’s on Dancing With The Stars?
1) Perez Hilton
It doesn’t take a genius to draw bodily fluids and devil horns on a picture using Paint. So why has it made Hilton famous? He rides the coat-tails of other news outlets to run his “blog”, and his participation in this gay witch-hunt does about as much for equal rights as Tilly did for Sea World.
