There are some names you see in the media so often you assume they’re somebody important.
However, you’d be hard-pressed to say exactly why they are famous.
They must be, or they wouldn’t be in the news all the time.
Well, no, some have precisely zero claims to fame.
They’re nobodies who pretend to be somebody, and the media lets them get away with it because it gives them something to write about.
Here’s a look at the most outrageous cases of ‘celebrities’ who haven’t done anything worthwhile in their lives.
10 /10 Kim Kardashian
Quick test – name three important things Kim Kardashian did in the past ten years. Don’t beat yourself if you don’t know the answer, for she hasn’t done anything.
She’s just famous for being rich and having a big but. Granted, the whole Kardashian clan are smart and have managed to earn a fortune by having us watch their antics. Nothing else. Maybe there’s a reason she’s famous; we made her so!
9 /10 Bristol Palin
Sounds vaguely familiar? That’s because she is the daughter of former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin. And Bristol?
Well, she got some attention for getting pregnant at the age of 17. Plenty of other girls made that mistake and didn’t get any recognition for that.
Young Bristol has managed to turn a bad situation around and now is fighting to prevent teenage pregnancy. In other words, just a pathetic attempt to cash in on her mother’s fame, and Sarah Palin isn’t that big anyway.
8 /10 Paris Hilton
She’s got nothing to take credit for. Just nothing. Paris Hilton hasn’t done anything to deserve her celebrity status except being an heiress to the Hilton fortune.
However, she spent years building a trashy reputation with hordes of paparazzi always on her heels to document her outrageous lifestyle.
Thank God she’s getting older, and we’ll hopefully see less of her since she no longer qualifies as a party girl.
7 /10 Honey 'Boo Boo' Thompson
This poor child rose to fame as a pageant queen superstar, and maybe we should have mercy on her.
After all, it’s not her fault, but her mother’s who had no qualms to parade her 6-year old kid in skimpy outfits and outrageously inappropriate sensual poses.
Poor kid, to think she’ll have to go through life with the memory of being the star of those truly disgusting TV shows.
