A Penny For Your Thoughts

I AM NOT A CELEBRITY

I wonder why we are all so absorbed with the lives of celebrities? We go see their movies and watch television and like certain actors, actresses and singers. However, it seems whenever a celebrity has problems, breaks the law or dies, the story consumes news coverage.

Personally, I get tired of hearing about Lindsey Lohan’s recent escapades and the Kardashian family’s dirty laundry. Is it necessary to hear all the details about the celebrities who gained weight, got a divorce or had a baby?

Those who are familiar with The Food Channel on TV have probably watched the great southern cook, Paula Deen. Everything she cooks uses a stick of butter and lots of cream and sugar.
