Nowadays it seems that people will do just about anything to become famous. With celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton getting famous the way they did, though, is it any surprise that more and more people are starting to think of even more ridiculous ways to get their 15 minutes of fame.
Take Josie Cunningham from Leeds, UK. Josie is a particularly crass celebrity wannabe who infuriated the entire kingdom by getting a boob job with taxpayer’s money through the NHS (National Health Service), the same NHS that refused to pay for a surgery that would have given a little girl with cerebral palsy the ability to walk.
Not only does she claim to not know who the father is, but even worse was Cunningham’s willingness to abort her baby for the chance to appear on Big Brother.
After deciding not to abort the baby for the “opportunity”, Josie decided that instead of getting rid of the baby for fame, she would use her pregnancy to catapult her up amongst the stars she so desperately craves to be one of. Her idea: filming and then selling DVDs of her baby’s birth.
The sheer amount of wrongness that comes from this girl just goes to show that celebrities like the Kardashians and Paris Hilton are not to be idolized, but rather used as a tale of what NOT to do.
If kids grow up thinking that all they need to do is release some steamy sex-tape to be famous, or abort a pregnancy to make a public appearance, then the “stars” of tomorrow won’t be actors and actresses anymore so much as pimps or junkies.
