Usually celebrities need to work hard for their money and fame, but sometimes there are people like Kim Kardashian or Snooki, who just got extremely lucky and had everything handed to them on a silver platter. Now let’s see what those so-called celebrities did (or didn’t do) to become famous. If anything, this list proves that pretty much anyone can become famous given “the right place and the right time”.
One sunny day Sarah Palin’s little 17yo daughter Bristol got knocked. “So what?” you might ask. Yeah, I don’t get it either but apparently it’s in our nature to snoop in other people’s business. It sure as hell didn’t help her who was running for VP to mom score any points with the public, but made Bristol famous enough to get a part in “Dancing with Stars”.
Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi
What better cesspool to crawl out of than “Jersey Shore”? It wasn’t enough that people actually watched this pile of crap, but they also idolized the crazy, spoiled and at times idiotic participants, like Snooki here. She got so big she was getting paid $150,000 per episode, making her one of the highest paid reality TV stars out there.
Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson
After “Toddlers & Tiaras” Alana Thompson got her own reality show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”. So much BS in one short sentence! There’s really nothing else to talk about here: most of the sane people hate this entire family and the tv show and that’s why they’re famous.
Oh yeah, Amber Rose made some meh-usic, dabbled in fashion a little bit, but you know what really made her famous? Dating rappers. Yup, that’s it. She’s like an exquisite piece of furniture that you can sleep with. Well, now that she’s a model, she can stand on her own, but, man, that origin story, am I right?
No surprise here, Paris basically got all of her fame and fortune from her family name. But dad’s money just wasn’t enough, Paris had some small parts in movies and the critics have labeled her a “celebutante”, the child of a rich family who attracts massive attention without really doing anything to earn it. Yup, that’s Paris all right.
What? You didn’t know she made a sex tape to get famous? Well, now you know. NEXT!
Other than being the daughter of Lionel Richie, Nicole is known for her unhealthy relationship with Paris Hilton – her ex-bestie. She went to school with one of the Kardashians, and was a star of the reality series called “The Simple Life” with Paris Hilton. If your daddy’s got money – you’re gonna be just fine.
Known for being the daughter of Ozzy Osbourne, Kelly really blew up after starring in “The Osbournes” (very original title, I know). You can see a trend with these “celebrities”, right? Girl stars in a reality show, gets famous, stars in more things – gets even more famous. Now she’s trying her hand at music, writing, fashion and even theatre, although she’ll always be in her father’s shadow.
And at the top of my list is the ultimate celebrity by association – Kate Middleton. Sure, she had money before marrying Prince William, but you’ve never even heard of her before that. At least of all the people on this list she’s trying to do something good with her celebrity status and that sweet-sweet royal money.
