The world of fame and fortune is all about image. The way people view you is very important when you are a celebrity, because perception and appearance is everything. Just because someone is in a tabloid magazine or walking the red carpet, doesn’t mean that they are rich. People need to understand that there is a difference between being rich and being famous. Some people are rich and the world has no idea about them, and other people are in the spotlight yet struggling to make ends meet.
Sometimes, the riches that come with fame get misconstrued and end up getting to the celebrities' heads. A lot of the time, a quick rise to riches gives people the opportunity to live larger than ever before. However, money goes very quickly if you aren’t careful with it and the following ten celebrities would tell you exactly that. In Hollywood, getting rich is not the hard part, it is staying rich that people have trouble doing, and when the money runs out, that is when reality hits.
The following ten celebrities have given the world the illusion that they are successful when in reality they are struggling just like you and I. Okay, maybe not as bad, but they are struggling for Hollywood standards.
10 Janice Dickinson
9 Lauryn Hill
7 Mike “The Situation”
6 Gary Busey
5 Allen Iverson
4 Stephen Baldwin
3 Heidi and Spencer aka Speidi
2 Brandi Glanville
1 Lindsay Lohan
Oh, Lindsay! Once upon a time you were on top of the world, swimming in cash, and now, well now, you aren’t doing so well. Lindsay Lohan should be a lesson to all young girls entering the world of showbiz. There was a time where Lohan was the “it girl,” starring in what felt like every movie. However, something shifted; perhaps it was the partying, perhaps her fame got to her head, but Lohan slowly turned into a train wreck. The heavy use of drugs and her horrible parents began to get the best of her and she forgot to work on her craft. Her dysfunctional family seemed to be consumed by money. Today, she is trying to live a regular life as an actress (whatever that means).
