Lately, the rise of ‘fake’ celebrities has become an everyday occurrence, you know what I mean; those people who hook-up with celebs and use them for their celebrity and then the rest of us are stuck hearing about their lives in the media, when they have done nothing to earn said celebrity.
(1) Kris Humphries was a nobody NBA player before he met Kim Kardashian and was catapulted into the limelight. However as quickly as they got together, they were finished and his only claim to fame now is being that guy that Kim was married to while pregnant with Kanye’s baby.
(2) Nick Cannon had a fairly decent career before he hooked up with Mariah Carey, but since then he he’s been a bag-boy for Mariah. However, with the end of their relationship and their subsequent divorce, Nick is now using Mariah’s celebrity to revamp his career and it’s extremely sad. He has been giving interviews discussing his sex life with her and a whole bunch of other celebrities, including Kim Kardashian.
(3) Kim Kardashian is the queen of fake celebritidom. She’s had a string of high profile relationships that have only been used to make her more popular and get her exposed in the media.
(4) Lamar Odem is another NBA player that saw fit to use the celebrity name to make himself more relevant in Hollywood.
(5) Doug Reinhardt had a short cameo on The Hills before he really hit his stardom for dating Paris Hilton.
(6) Brandon Davis, is the famous hanger on of Paris Hilton. You might remember him from his comments about Lindsey Lohan’s crotch in the media. Since his glorious debut as Hollywood’s trash talker weren’t enough, he’s also dated Gossip Girl’s Mischa Barton and possibly even Hilton herself.
(7) After Britney Spears dumped him and guaranteed his spousal support and child support every month, ex-rapper Kevin Federline went on to be on the Biggest Loser, no pun intended, because he is just that; a loser.
(8) Dean McDermott might have had a string of roles on the Lifetime Network, but his more recent claim to fame is being Tori Spellings bitc- I mean husband. The couple has recently hit a couple of rough patches since Dean’s infidelities hit the media limelight.
(9) Ray J is a grade-A douchebag, but other than his minor singing abilities, he is mostly known for his hook up with Hollywood’s most beautiful women, namely, Kim Kardashian, who he decided to not only release a sex tape of, but dedicate an awfully written song about her too.
(10) Casper Smart is famously known for being Jennifer Lopez’s back-up dancer, whom she decided to screw. Unfortunately for Jen, he turned out to be a snake as well as being questionably gay. The rumor is that the reason that JLo and Casper broke-up because he cheated with two transsexuals.
