celebrity obsession

i admit it - i have an unhealthy obsession with celebrity gossip. it's not like i watch Entertainment Tonight on a regular basis, or subscribe to People, but i do pick up a copy of In Touch or US Weekly when a particularly juicy caption catches my eye - maybe once a month. and for more DIY gossip reporting, i like to tune in to websites like go fug yourself and the superficial.

right now i'm watching an hour-long VH1 special on the 20 Skinniest Celebs. is this rock bottom? i hope so. yet i can't tear my eyes away.

i don't think it's just me, though. i think this is just part of the cultural zeitgeist right now. i love the tag line of The Superficial: "because you're ugly." it's true. we are.

    i understand. we need to start a support group to hone ourself off this mindless bullshit.

    but seriously, can someone force feed nicole ritchie already? or make a bobblehead out of that blonde girl from blue crush?

    there's also theskinnywebsite.com or something like that for more indulgence. and of course, there's PEREZ.

    Ilona,

    For top model+project runway recaps/analyis you cannot beat fourfour.typepad.com. I tried to tell you about it at the ethiopian restaurant.
