Tiger Woods’ car accident and the White House party crashers have me thinking about the famous and those who wannabe.
Very few manage fame better than the world’s number-one golfer. Woods is a control freak. Right now, the only thing we know he lost control of was his car. But by doing so, he lost control of his tightly-scripted public persona. A rare misstep that his “people,” are dealing with.
Free advice to Tiger: take the “I’m only human after all” approach. You’re welcome.
And then there are people like the Salahis. As Alessandra Stanley points out in the New York Times, reality television is making some people do seriously stupid stuff. Just to be famous. The Salahis crashed a better party than the Gosselins or the Heenes. Naturally, they already have a date on Larry King.
Free advice to the Secret Service: next time, take the “Shoot on sight” approach. You’re welcome.
