    Paris Hilton was never a celebrity, she's just a spoiled brat that has a lot of family money. This is a youth oriented society so once anyone hits 50, they're not considered hot anymore, with very rare exceptions but the press is no longer obsessed with them.

    By far most of these celebrities are famous only because they're famous. To keep up you do need to have some talent at something. Or you need a thick wad of cash. Lingerie, sports apparel or makeup lines can only carry you so far. Thankfully.

    Somehow it seems appropriate that Seagal is being documented on History channel :p

    Fame is fleeting... you are only at the top for relatively short time. There are rare exceptions to this rule, but for most that is how it works.
    There is a famous saying that holds true.. "Be nice to the people you meet on the way up because you're going to see them again on your way back down".

    As for your samples, why is Paris in the list? That is the classic "15 minutes of fame"...

    I figure that there is a 10% turnover in the population every year .

    I remember when some of the “celebrities” (including the aforementioned) started complaining about lack of privacy, harassment from paparazzi and stalkers. None of them took my advice...

    Take your money, buy some modest clothes, move to a smaller city somewhere in the Midwest or the south, ride out the initial, “She moved where?” wave of attention, and pretty soon, nobody will be bothering you.

    ...and then you’ll be mad they’re ignoring you!

    That just might work. When Jewel married Ty Murray and settled down in Stephenville Texas I didn't hear a peep from her...until their divorce.

    When I get to feeling like I'm just another face lost in the crowd, I just pick up a big round bale of hay withy feed truck and head out for the pasture. The cows love me. Im famous in my field.

    I guess I reject the OP's thesis. Last night a SUPER OLD Bob Newhart (who won a grammy in 1961) was a presenter... on Diana Ross' 75th birthday she had a huge part and sang on the show... and in the section where this years passings are celebrated, a nice picture of Harold Bradley was prominent. Granted, people's careers are curtailed or they retire... but there are lots of Helen Mirren's still around... People are still around and still working... just maybe not the same way as we remember... heck, john beland just toured around here and he has been around since the 60's... Paris Hilton, btw, is doing really well business wise... and has settle down... just like most of us.

    "I remember back around in the early 2000s, there was so much news about Paris Hilton and Brittney Spears. Now it’s as if they don’t exist."

    You should get out more. Spears is worth about a $215M these days after a very successful Las Vegas residency. Hilton has turned out to be quite the businesswoman and is now worth an estimated $300M. They just don't hang out in your world apparently.

    There's a word for women who make money that way, and the current, somewhat more polite term is "Thots" :lol:


    ...speaking of, has anyone heard any "news" about Lindsey Lohan lately?

    Which celebrities are you referring to in this post? Howard Stern is one of the most recognizable people on the planet. Britney Spears gets followed by paparazzi wherever she goes, and still has millions of fans. She's not less recognizable that she was when she started.

    And how do you know that they're happier?
