Who Are These Celebrities?

I fear we have forgotten what the word celebrity means: One who is celebrated. Look at the cast of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! (How do you abbreviate that? IAC...GMOOH? That doesn't save any time). I find it funny that we "celebrate" these people by humiliating them - not that they don't deserve it. But the consequence of this public disgrace is that these people, who would be fast forgotten, are having their 15 minutes of fame extended. I mean...Stephen Baldwin? Come on. Call me when "Bio-Dome 2: Back in the Dome" comes out.

LOVE the abbreviation - I think that should be put into action pronounced Ick - Ga! MoHa if this show carries on beyond this season. I'm pretty sure most of the celebs on there were who the casting crew thought could drum up the most drama (cough, the evil Spencer Pratt), and who had nothing better to do with their careers. I do recall a beautiful (?) time last season when all the Baldwin brothers were on a show at the same time - no, I won't make those of you who don't watch the insane amount of TV I do guess. We had Alec Bladwin on 30 Rock, William on Dirty Sexy Money, Stephen on The Celebrity Apprentice, and wait for it... Daniel on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. Stand proud, Baldwin brothers.
