    Sutter, for her part, has been dissed by celebs as well, although she won't name names. "A very, very, very famous singer, known all over the world, shook my hand, said hello and that was basically it."

    Umm what did she expect? She's lucky that he/she shook her hand. :rolleyes
    Look, I love me most...If I could run across the beach into my own arms, I would.

    My sentiments exactly.
    Oh no! We're thinking alike!

    Most so called real celebrities like JLO have no formal training in the arts and did not even attend college. Others like Demi Moore didn't even graduate from high school.

    It is nice to see some attractive educated people on television for a change. Instead of having to endure with people handpicked by the networks and declared real stars like Ellen DeGeneres, Rosie O'Donnell, Whoopi Goldberg, and Roseanne Barr.

    What about the has been entertainers that are trying to get their own reality shows now?

    Or the shockingly horrible "I'm a Celebrity Get Me out of Here " won by one of J-Lo's discards.

    Too funny!! I can't wait for the day when the media stops wasting its time on Trista and Ryan. I don't know if you guys have read this blurb from the Watch With Kristin chat transcript from last month, but it's so hilarious and something only Trista would do. Someone was asking Kristin why Trista and Ryan were at the TV Land awards:
    ---------
    Q. Why were Trista and Ryan there? Aren't they supposed to be stepping out of the spotlight?
    A. Funny, your favorite tube maven asked the exact same thing--"What happened to staying out of the public eye?"--and it didn't go over well. The other journalists laughed, but Trista froze and stammered, and Ryan stepped in: "We took a break. We actually just happened to be in town when this came up, and it was a fun opportunity for us, and it's been a while since we've done anything." Honestly, I feel bad about that. But I would have felt worse if they hadn't walked the red carpet twice. (No dookie--they walked through, turned around and did it again.)
    ---------
    Isn't that pathetic?

    I absolutely agree, sugarlady! I think the reason "reality" shows have become so popular is because people like to see real people... maybe we're tired of watching ACTORS who are getting paid ridiculous sums of money to entertain us!?! Isn't Ray Romano getting something like 1.5 million per episode? I'm sorry, but no one is worth that kind of money! So what makes someone like P. Diddy Coombs (or any of the people sugarlady mentioned)a "celebrity" and somehow better than Meredith & Ian?! Does that make sense?
