Why are people so offended by this? When I think of celebrities, I automatically think they'll marry another person of celebrity status. It's always interesting to hear when they find someone, completely outside the publics eye, and marry them. What's so wrong calling people with normal, regular paying jobs, regular Joe's? Nothing.

Celebrities are just what the title implies, celebrated, by the media and the fans. Taken as individuals, some of them are enormously talented and wonderful people and I enjoy and have enjoyed watching them on the big screen. They can take you away from your everyday life. No one said they had found the cure for cancer. They have a place like anyone else; but, their place happens to involve a lot of public exposure and adulation and a lot of money for some of them. To be catapulted from a small town to worldwide fame and all that entails requires a level of maturity most of us don't have and seeing the wrecks, like Brittany Spears or Justin Beber shows the price they pay. We want to put people on a pedestal and treat them like they are special, it's human nature. There are people like augie2 that are obviously very threatened by this though; a huge case of inferiority complex I guess. People who are secure don't worry that Patrick Dempsey is a star and married to an "ordinary" person. They don't see that definition as a direct threat to them. I say do your own thing and if you want to be rich and famous, as Captain Picard says, "make it so." don't worry about what other people are doing.

"regular people" ??? Are celebs so superior that the rest of us from our leper colonies should be honored to even be on the same planet ? First off, Evann, maybe your "star struck" but I sure as hell am NOT. I have little or no respect for celebs and they sure as hell are not superior to me or anyone I know. They do a job like everyone else in society, in fact, they were known as jesters many moons ago. They worked for little or nothing until the "star struck" society, like you, elevated them to what you consider a superior position. Most celebs are loud mouths that have no clue how to handle money, relationships or anything else the everyday man/woman has to deal with in life.
