Celebri-spiral™: Enough Already

Our culture is in a celebri-spiral. We're conflicted over our ridiculous, growing celebrity culture consumption via magazines, websites, and TV shows. In 2007, my love/hate conflict made me take to the blog-o-sphere. All writing on this site © Dave Singleton 2009.

January 3, 2007: "Get More Money Out of Rosie O'Donnell's Fat Ass"-The War of Inanity Goes On

If I have to hear Donald Trump say one more time to a TV reporter how he wants to get more money out of Rosie O'Donnell's fat ass, I am going to dye my hair orange and style it "comb-over" ish, an homage to the grubby, short-fingered vulgarian from Queens who will stop at nothing to push his tired "Apprentice" TV show.

If there's any justice, his "Apprentice with My Kids" will flop big time this spring. Come on, fat women! Get mad at the Donald for his mean, personal attacks and boycott.

I just watched CNN's Showbiz Tonight's A.J. Hammer, TV Guide's Mary Murphy, and Court TV's Ashley Banfield debate the Rosie/Donald feud and it was insightful. Rosie and Donald are both master media manipulators who know how hard it is to get media attention these days and both know the escalation will help push the product (them) and boost their brands (them, their tv shows).And we buy it. We lap it up. But where's our line in the sand? Now that Barbara Walters has entered the fray and made her statement to the press supporting Rosie, basically calling Trump a liar for saying she (Barbara) hates Rosie, leading Trump to up the fight ante yet again like a schoolyard egotist who can't back down, what now?

What has to happen now for us to ignore these two? Why do we care?Will Trump's petty persona impact whether you watch The Apprentice? Will Rosie's endless verbal diarhea keep you from the View?
