10 People Fame Over

Andy Warhol once said, "In the future everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes." With the dawn of You Tube and social networking on the Internet, he couldn't have known how right he would turn out to be. Some people try to linger in our minds and on our television sets  long after their 15 minutes of fame should really be up, however. They just don't know when to go away. Here are 10 of the worst hangers-on whose 15 minutes of fame have either already expired or are about to run out.

1.  

Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin was Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain's choice for Vice President in 2008. Two years ago. So why is this woman still in the news?! Clearly, the woman has  proved she doesn't have a head for politics. Yet she's constantly on the television, appearing at a campaign rally, making a speech, and now, as a reporter for Fox News! Granted, if she's going to be on T.V., that's the perfect place for her, but why are we forced to look at her at all? Her fifteen minutes of fame should have expired two years ago -- before it even started.

2.  

The Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers

These three annoying brothers are still basking in their 15 minutes of fame, for some unknown reason. They can't sing, they aren't even that good-looking, yet prepubescent and teenage girls everywhere swoon over them. The Disney stars once announced that they were virgins, and that the planned to stay that way until marriage (by choice or by chance, one wonders?)  One of them recently got married, and yet they are still popular! Now that one of the brothers is going "solo," one can only hope that their 15 minutes of fame will end... soon!

3.  

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian

Why on earth did this woman become famous in the first place? For being rich and beautiful? Is it another case of Paris Hilton syndrome? Kardashian is the star of some reality show on VH1 that no one I know even watches. Guys naturally want to look at her because, well, look at her. We might get a better chance to see even more of her if the rumors are true and she poses for Playboy later this year. Or maybe that's just another ploy to extend her 15 minutes of fame even further. 

4.  

Kevin Federline

Kevin Federline

Why do we even know Kevin Federline's name? He dumped his girlfriend and kids in order to date Britney Spears. Big deal. This dude has absolutely no talent. His 15 minutes of fame should have been up long ago. Now he's trying to extend his 15 minutes of fame by appearing in the reality show "Celebrity Fit Club," claiming he needs to lose weight? What -- did he get fat just so he could stay in the limelight a little longer? How pathetic. He should have gone on "The Biggest Loser" instead -- a much more fitting title for him.

5.  

Kate Gosselin

Kate Gosselin

Will this womanever go away? We thought we were rid of her when her husband came to his senses and dumped her and their umpteen kids. Then she somehow lands a spot on "Dancing With the Stars" and we have to watch her plod around the stage like a bull in a china shop each week. Hopefully she will soon be voted off so we won't have to view this painful display anymore. But then, she has a new television reality show starting this summer. Please, just go away, we beg you! 

6.  

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber

A kid who can't sing, has no musical talent, has no rhythm whatsoever, and has a terrible bowl haircut?Why the heck is this boy famous? He's another of those teen idols that make you scratch your head and go, "huh?" There's even an MTV special telling kids how to blow-dry their hair to make it look like the Bieb's. If you're that desperate for grooming advice, you have bigger problems than your hair. This kid looks about 10 but is actually 16 (or so he claims). Bieber Fever has to be over soon (God, please!)  and then this yahoo's 15 minutes of fame will be totally up.

7.  

Rosie O'Donnell

Rosie O

 

Just when we thought we had gotten rid of this man-hating, raucous, unfunny woman, now she's getting ready to come back to daytime television. Rumor has it, O'Donnell is looking to replace Oprah after her imminent retirement from network TV. Then we'll have to listen to that loud, obnoxious, grating voice on a daily basis. Say it isn't so!  Her 15 minutes of fame were over 20 years ago, long before she ever came out. 

8.  

Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck

 

This guy is simply annoying. He got a lot of press when he released his book and was then hired by Fox News (great place for him, by the way). This right-wing looney who is an equal-opportunity offender (he recently said President Obama would next nominate a "gay-handicapped-black woman who's an immigrant" for the Supreme Court) should never have had even five, let alone 15, minutes of fame in the first place! 

9.  

Tila Tequila

Tila Tequila

"Who?" you might ask (if you're lucky). She's that girl who used to host Fuse's "Pants Off Dance Off," then got her own reality show on VH1 (don't ask why). Her talent has yet to be found, besides  posing for Playboy. This one's tried modeling, acting, hosting, music, even online business ventures, in order to maintain her 15 minutes of fame. In December 2009, she even announced she was having a surrogate pregnancy for her brother. Just another lame attempt to further prolong her almost-over 15 minutes of fame.

10.  

Jesse James

Jesse James

Don't you just hate a guy who becomes famous for cheating on his wife? This man went from one of the most loved to the most hated guys in the span of about a week, after it was announced he'd cheated on wife Sandra Bullock right after she won an Oscar. Lousy timing, right? Or is it just another clever, manipulative, rude way to try to extend his 15 minutes of fame? Sure, he had some show about motorcycles on television before all of this, but does anyone really care about that now? Jesse, your 15 minutes are almost up, and will be totally up when the media frenzy over your cheating on your wife calms down. Then you might as well kiss your "career" goodbye (see: Tiger Woods).

  • cheap wedding dresses
    A shirtwaist or all-natural cheap wedding dresses ceremony gown having a bouffant skirt will manufacture the illusion of your taller, rounder figure. You might wish to consider a slight A-line seem with princess seams to produce the illusion of peak. The quite very best type is basically a slight A-line experiencing a not-too-full skirt. A complete skirt will make you look misplaced in the gown. An exception may just be a wedding gown, but this vogue won't match just about every and each petite bride. Off-the-shoulder wedding ceremony attire, scooped necklines and spaghetti straps also show up nicely on you.

    I agree with every single person's inclusion on the list - except perhaps Rosie. She's been around for a while and is no different than other less successful celebrities. Paris Hilton could replace her on this list. Honestly, why have people gotten famous for being famous?
