Sex Tapes & Celebrity Status

Paris Hilton who? …..Kim Kardashian who??

So many women have made a name for themselves by either a “leaked” sex tape or a scandalous affair with someone famous.

How many of us knew who Paris Hilton was before the “One Night in Paris” scandal? I heard her name a couple times, maybe saw her in a gossip magazine but she wasn’t very interesting. Hell, she still isn’t very interesting but she’s everywhere! You name it, her name or face has probably been on it. I admit that The Simple Life was entertaining but I swear I lost some brain cells tuning into My New BFF!

I remember attending a Pure Romance party at my friend Samantha’s house and laughing my butt off at Ray J’s sex tape. (What did he think he was doing?? LOL) I had no clue who this Kim chick was but soon after, she was everywhere. Magazines, TV, Gossip columns… Not only did she become famous, but she brought her whole family with her. Now that’s the power of the P!

Then you have the women who sleep with celebrities or high society men just to put them on blast after getting ammunition to completely blow the lid off of their secret life. These women save EVERYTHING! (Like texts and voicemails, side eye to Tiger) Then after his life is in shambles, they’re writing books, posing for Playboy and merchandising.

I applaud those women who have gotten where they are today as a result of their own hard work and independence. You don’t see too much of that going on in this day and age. What happened to good, old-fashioned hard work? …Well, I guess they were “working hard” at one point or another. 😉
