like those that join the celebrity rehab show. it's so vulgar but what do you think? can a show that reveals a celebrity's bad side and tells the world their bad story really help these former has beens? what do you think of those celebrities that join this kind of show?

Nothing in this world is private anymore. I think that's why most stars (the most popular ones) tend to break and start to fall apart. The paparazzi are one of the main issues. They never give any privacy. I know that it's their job, but nikky28 is right, people need their own space once in a while!

i feel differently. i think that we all forget, they wanted to be in that position. i didn't go to pink's door, for example and ask her to please please please sign to me. most of them are narcissist, with really big ego who want and need to be seen and heard. along with that territory comes times when it's not so good. when you are in that business you have to take the good and the bad. you have to be seen in your glory and your downfall. that is what you put yourself up there for. also, remember that they chose to be on that show. once again, they are putting themselves on display and we didn't ask. the paparatz are not responsible for this one.

It is very difficult for celebrities to recover in front of the camera. It is just unnatural. I agree that man is a social animal and celebrities love the camera and socialising. But man also loves privacy and living with a close knit community. I personally would never like the camera in front of me especially during the tough times. I don't want strangers passing judgements about me. I need my own space and time to sort things out for myself. I need to ponder over things that I have done in the past and analyse the situation at hand and spend quality time with myself and my loved ones. I am entitled to have my privacy and I don't like washing dirty linen out in the public. With a camera being shoved into your face during these times will worsen the situation and this might also not result in full recovery. They just might pretend to have gotten rid of their habit only to revert back to it. Celebs are humans and they should feel the same things as the general public do.

I am a big fan of this show. I feel that it could be good for the celebrity to let others into their lives, so that everyone is able to see what they have gone through. It also shows that they have their problems too. They may make more money, but their lives are not always so great like most people think. It could possibly help their career to move forward and bring them back into the spotlight. Or it could make them look bad and have a downfall. Either way, I think it is very brave of them to put their situation out there for the world to see. I wish them all the luck in their recovery and hope things will turn out good for them.
