I think I'm the only one in the world who does not hate Kate Gosselin. I can't hate her, I don't even know her. I know a lot about her, but I do not know her personally. I think that is a distinction we must all make when we discuss and form opinions about celebrities.
But making that distinction doesn't keep me from searching out and looking at celeb photos. I love them! I love seeing what celebs wear, how they wear it and obviously, how they look. I am in no way a fashionista, but I do love fashion and the best place to see new trends are on my favorite celebrities. I really enjoy seeing these folks in their natural state, no make-up or fancy gowns, just Kate dropping kids off at the bus stop.
By checking out celebrity photos, I am also reminded that the people in the photos are people, just like you and me. They are not exempt from financial trouble, family strife or addiction. Sometimes I wonder if bringing back the old Hollywood system, in a limited way, may help to keep these people from having to live out their personal lives for all to see. The old Hollywood system would have protected the stars from nasty gossip and hurtful lies.
Don't get me wrong; I love to see J-Lo and her hubby proudly showing off their beautiful twins. Nothing thrills me more than seeing Kate Hudson in a fabulous gown. Show me the beautiful, smiling face of Penelope Cruz and I'm in! It thrills me to see the stars I love accepting awards for their work and the charities they support.
I love celebrities and I will live vicariously through them, from photo to photo to photo, all the days of my life.
