What was the final straw for him: the bad tv show, the World Series national anthem performance, or the Christmas album?

Well for one thing, based on their character's behavior on the show, I'm assuming they were about 13 then.

Haha. Becky pointed that out to me while we were watching the show. I thought it was pretty awesome. I am surprised they put 2001 poster up though.

It's just content to discuss for its own sake. There may be someone here or there who actually cares about this in the way that people get excited talking about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, but for the most part, it's just content and memes.

And ten million dune buggies

But I hate them worse than lepers

Evidence indicates that poor mental health is correlated with celebrity worship. Researchers have examined the relationship between celebrity worship and mental health in United Kingdom adult samples. Maltby et al. (2001) found evidence to suggest that the intense-personal celebrity worship dimension was related to higher levels of depression and anxiety. Similarly, Maltby et al., in 2004, found that the intense-personal celebrity worship dimension was not only related to higher levels of depression and anxiety, but also higher levels of stress, negative affect, and reports of illness. Both these studies showed no evidence for a significant relationship between either the entertainment-social or the borderline-pathological dimensions of celebrity worship and mental health.

M Sparks

Normally, I would agree with you, but I can see how some people would have a minor interest in this based on how it could affect his music. And...hers...I guess.

But mostly, it was an excuse to argue whether her TV show was watchable, or marginally watchable.

Linking this thread to celebrity worship is like diagnosing somebody with claustrophobia because they said it was "unfortunate" to be trapped in an elevator for 20 minutes.

I'll have you know, Tom, that I'm as happy as can be, despite how carefully and vigilantly I maintain my altar to Zooey.

Courage.

A Message To My Fans

This is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write. I see all of the support and I am so thankful for my fans, friends and family who are helping me through this difficult time.



I am trying not to read all the different media reports but it’s hard not to see all the negative ones. First and foremost, I married for love. I can’t believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show! I share so much of my life on a reality show, that contemplating whether to even film my wedding was a tough decision to make, and maybe it turned out to not be the smartest decision. But it’s who I am! We filmed Kourtney giving birth, Khloe getting married, break ups, make ups, our best moments and our worst moments. These were all real moments. That’s what makes us who we are. We share, we give, we love and we are open!



Everyone that knows me knows that I’m a hopeless romantic! I love with all of my heart and soul. I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon. I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly. I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn’t know how to and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people.



I’m being honest here and I hope you respect my courage because this isn’t easy to go through. But I do know that I have to follow my heart. I never had the intention of hurting anybody and I accept full responsibility for my actions and decisions, and for taking everyone on this journey with me. It just didn’t turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for.



There are also reports that I made millions of dollars off of the wedding. These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this. I’m so grateful to everyone who took the time to come to my wedding and I’ll be donating the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation.



I’m sorry if I have hurt anyone, but my dad always told me to follow my heart and I believe now that I really am.
