And now, for your viewing pleasure, the 2nd edition of Last Five Minutes Of Fame ®, the new weekly installment of people that truly belong on this list. With a nod to Andy Warhol, being on “the list” puts members of this most exclusive club in the center of the media glare…kind of like a deer in the headlights just before…KABOOM. One can’t help feeling sorry for them since they mean so well, not as in well-meaning, rather, mean so well to be famous, not matter what, at any cost, uber alles. The great thing about the Last Five Minutes of Fame is that we a chance to put these people out to pasture until such time that they actually do something (again) to revive their status. Until then…here are my new additions. See ya.
Carrie Prejean even acknowledges this fact herself, count 'em...five minutes girl.
Lake Bell...sorry...but the countdown begins. It's nice that you get to wear designer clothes and all...
T.R. Knight is definitely on the list...and hopefully he can have a Doogie Howser moment to change it all back.
Remember this nut bag, Trisha Walsh-Smith who got her few minutes up and running vis-a-vis U-Tube for outing her husband's sexual shortcomings? Well, she is desperately trying to hold on to the last of the five. Toodles bug eyes.
Brooke Hogan might get photographed for many moons to come..but say what you want. She is on the list.
As is her cougar mother Linda Hogan, shown here with Alakazia at his Los Angeles "fashion show". Now, do you all remember the Alakazia collection?
Alakazia, alakazam, there's a flower growing out of your crotch. I can't even add Alakazia to this list because that would be too high praise.
Leigh Lezark is/was the sought after DJ and continues to be the fashion front row darling. But, I'm not convinced she's a forever fixture. Maybe I'm being too harsh. Thoughts?
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt must go. They are a worse version of Kate and Jon Gosselin....and we all know how I feel about those two. Eight is enough...already.
No, Kanye West is not on the list but his fashion line, Pastelle, is toast and didn't even get one minute. Awww.
The Heene family, mostly the father Richard is surely and deservedly on this list...and those five minutes are gonna be filled with legal wrangling. As for Balloon Boy...well...jury's out if he'll have a comeback. 'Cause in our new society, Balloon Boy is considered a celebrity already.
