I never belive what the press sais about famous people. Do you? I mean how many times do we read about some star expecting a baby and 20 months later the baby is no where to be found. Or how they play with pictures to make them look better or worse then real life or take pictures out of contence. Poor things somethimes they cant evenn sneeze without having their picture all over with titles like "without make up" or angry so and so.

Well some of them are true but most of them are just plain gimmick to gain popularity or gain some attention. So I usually don't beleive them all the time.

I just dont get people that would buy all womens mags every week (like my cousin) she gets some 10 a week and its funny reading different stories with the same picture its like what are you going to fabricate next.

I feel the same. Maybe its a girl thing. But I am more of a practical guy. I am also glad that my wife does not care about such stuff. There are other important matters that one needs to buy and those are not one of them. Best to you!

No, I don't either. Most of what they're saying is probably just to attract people to read the magazine or watch the entertainment show, or something like that. That's what I believe, anyways. It could also simply be that they want to put some of the celebrities down, give them a bad reputation, or something like that. But honestly, it doesn't really matter what goes on in their life. It's their business. They're entitled to their privacy.

well imagine if they have a picture of a star in sport clothes and her partner infront of her if they write "so and so having a run" they wont get anyone to buy the paper but if they have it as a top story "so and so having a fight (becasue the star looks a bit angry or tired or out of breath) that would sell a lot of papers (for some reason which is beyond me why)
