    @LastWord: Actually they aren’t the ones to blame, they had an opportunity to make lots of money and took it, who wouldn’t do it? It’s the celebrity industry, created out of the neccesity of people knowing about this “stars” that make them rich… so whoever watches even 1minute of their show, who read gossip magazines, blogs like this, etc… those are the ones to be ashamed of this… so to all the people that comment and disses them, excuse me? why are you even here then, ur part responsible for their fortune

    Our soldiers fighting for our liberty can’t even dream of this amount of money in their lifetime, yet these POS earn this ridiculous amount of money for doing nothing. WTF is wrong with this country??? How stupid can you be to spend your time watching this c.r.a.p.? Get a life!

    I can’t believe that LC gets that much! Talk about someone with no talent doing nothing!
    As for our soldiers you don’t go into the military to make money. I don’t think our President is paid this much.

    Of course our soldiers are not in it for the money, but they DESERVE it for risking their lives every day. As for the current President…he’s not worth a penny.

    I guess you can get paid a lot to act obnoxious and stupid. “Reality stars”, these gals live on another planet, nothing real about them.

    The one that really gets is that Kim Kardashian is at the top of this list, a woman prone to sluttiness whorishness (this isn’t just my opinion, but a verifiable truth which can be verified by her long list of past sex partners) and let us not forget that the foremost reason why she is famous today is because of a sex tape. There are other celebrities and women out there who are just as pretty or prettier than her, have just as good a body or better, who could be just as entertaining or better, and are also not ****** whorish. Not to say that no one else on the list is ****** whorish, but this is one of the celebrities that it can be verified that she is ****** whorish.

    It’s also beneath me to understand why she keeps being elevated in many types of rankings. Obviously, men in general seem to not care about the sluttiness whorishness factor of a woman, especially if the woman is a supposedly “hot” celebrity. Again, it’s beneath me to understand why a person would want to enter a woman where many other men have been before them. Not to say that no one else on the list is ****** whorish, but this is one of the celebrities that it can be verified that she is ****** whorish.

    There are very few women who remain a virgin until the latter part of their 20’s and there are many more women who are ****** whorish like Kim Kardashian into their 20’s. Kim Kardashian is rich and famous because of her sex tape and her ****** whorishness, yet there are no examples or instances in which anyone has become rich or famous for being and remaining a pure virgin for a long period of time. That just shouldn’t be so and it’s not too late to right that wrong. Let me stop right here, as this is longwinded.

    The Virgin Opines Says:

    I must state that I am indeed a female who is a very chaste virgin and 27 years old. I would love to have opportunities made available to me and doors opened to me for the foremost reason that I will/have remained a virgin for a long time. It would be a better world if people were rewarded more for being chaste and respectable, instead of it seeming as if whorish and disrespectable behavior is more likely to be rewarded.
