The entertainment industry promises big rewards as well as bitter competitions among the players.
There are probably just a small percentage of celebrities whether actors, singers, hosts, and TV personalities who have so far managed their stardom status after years (if not decades) in the business.
A lot of people in this small percentage are among the most talented and gifted entertainers that Hollywood just cannot seem to get enough of their works.
They are subjects of admiration, the finest role models everyone can take examples from.
On the other side of the spectrum, you have celebrities with the ability to disappear from the spotlight without fanfare.
They earned great early success and attracted a lot of interests from the media and public at large.
For one reason or another, the stardom gradually dims out to the point where they find themselves struggling to put the spotlight back on.
To make things worse, they don’t seem to be aware of the fact. The following names should fit the bill well.
10 Hilary Duff
A celebrity’s stardom status has gone down to a desperate point when one has been rumored to call the paparazzi to get back on radar.
Perhaps it would be such a smart move when no one knows about the skimp at all or if everything actually comes to fruition, but not in the case of Hillary Duff.
Her early success in the entertainment industry brought significant media attention, specifically during her Lizzie McGuire days.
Her Disney’s success has long gone, and her attempt to bounce back to the industry flopped with her 2014 single Chasing the Sun ended up at No. 79 on the Billboard Hot 100.
9 Nick Cannon
There was a time when Nick Cannon appeared as host of many popular shows such as Wild ‘n Out and America’s Got Talent.
He also is an actor featured in Drumline, Roll Bounce, and Love Don’t Cost a Thing among others. All of those never actually made him a serious star in the industry.
Cannon was once married to one of the best singers of all time, Mariah Carey. Now you can see him hosting Fox’s The Masked Singer.
While the show is still running with respectable rating, the host itself – at least for now – seems unable to regain as much popularity as he once had.
8 Aubrey O'Day
The first time Aubrey O’Day earned her fame was in the girl group Danity Kane in Making the Band 3.
The group members apparently did not get along well, and she was fired in 2008 following a discord with P. Diddy, her mentor at the time.
Rumor has it that O’Day only wanted to use the band as a prop to launch her own solo stardom. It didn’t work out.
More recently she has done mostly reality TV including The Apprentice – where she was fired again – and previously All About Aubrey which lasted only one season.
7 Ashley Greene
As The Twilight Saga reached its end many years ago, some actors have managed to keep their acting careers on such as Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.
Unfortunately the same thing cannot be said to Ashley Greene, who in the Saga portrayed vampire Alice Cullen.
People remembered her poor acting, and it seemed that every movie featuring her turned into a flop, critically and commercially.
Her one-season role in Rogue also coincided with the show’s last season.
Her other movie titled The Apparition, released before The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, actually was named one of the worst horror films of 2012.
