Just that they get to live and relive different lives/personalities.

I wouldn't mind being just as stupid as me except with flashing lights and money everywhere.  Oh....can I have an Oompa-Loompa and a trained orangutang too?

I have no idea, Sweetpain, except that some people have such empty lives of their own, they have to find someone to emulate and nearly worship.

I don't care who is who or what they are doing.  Entertainment Tonight isn't entertaining to me and watching Paris Hilton moaning over and over about poor me made me sick.  You broke the law, take your punishment and shut up!  The rest of us would have to sit in jail and be quiet, right?  

I admire the celebs who do good things - Princess Di, Angelina and Brad, Ophrah, Paul Newman..they take so much and they give so much right back.  That is the way to be famous - not for your stupid stunts but how you repay the world that made you rich.  I must confess, sometimes I wish some of the orphans adopted or the schools built were for American citizens because we have many orphaned children and a lot of inner city girls would love the chances the African girls will have but the very fact of the open handedness of the gesture might make others think a little about what they can give, next time they feel like grabbing more than their own share of things.

I love the old saying, "To whom much is given, much is required."  Makes sense that if you are blessed with riches, whether through birth or hard work, you must share with those less fortunate.  Karma keeps good accounts.

"In August/September 2006, Banksy replaced up to 500 copies of Paris Hilton's debut CD, Paris, in 48 different UK record stores with his own cover art and remixes by Danger Mouse. Music tracks were given titles such as "Why am I Famous?", "What Have I Done?" and "What Am I For?". Several copies of the CD were purchased by the public before stores were able to remove them, some going on to be sold for as much as £750 on online auction websites such as eBay. The cover art depicted Paris Hilton digitally altered to appear topless. Other pictures feature her with a dog's head replacing her own, and one of her stepping out of a luxury car, edited to include a group of homeless people, which included the caption '90% of success is just showing up.'"

from the wikipedia article on banksy, the grafitti artist.

Ha!  Maybe if you're a thirteen year old.  Otherwise, Isabelle is just one more simple, righteous, pompous woman among many.  It's her generation and her wealth.  She can't help it, I guess.  Still, reading her posts makes my lip curl.  Isabelle is one of many things that's wrong with fucking America.
