Ashley George Hamilton gathered what little celebrity he had to garner an appearance as a contestant on this season’s Dancing With the Stars. In case you were wondering, he was considered one of the stars. Most people had never heard of him before his rise to fame, but he was voted one of People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People. Many thought that his appearance on the show would give him a boost and he could have been a slam dunk for the finals. Fate (or a lack of talent) did not smile on him as he had the dubious distinction of being the first to be voted off of the show. There is no word from Hamilton on future plans…maybe Celebrity Apprentice.
Barack Hussein Obama tried to use his celebrity to garner favor with the International Olympic Committee and secure the approval of his hometown, Chicago, as the site of the 2016 Olympic Summer Games. His star is considered my most main stream media cheerleaders as a political star. His wife was one of People Magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful People. Many thought that his million dollar day trip to Copenhagen was a slam dunk to bring the Olympics to the Windy City. Fate (or a lack of stature) did not smile on Obama as he had the dubious distinction of being the first to be voted out of the running. Word is that Obama may actually start addressing the many pressing issues facing this country.
Yes we can?
