Vicious cycle

Okay. I'll put it out there...Heidi Montag and her husband Spencer Pratt bug me. I'm sure I'm not the only one, but I just wanted to admit it. While I think Anderson Cooper's clip is funny and scathing, it's also exactly what "Speidi" want...coverage. The more we talk about these people on major media outlets, the longer they are going to stick around. I wish people would just not bother (but then look! I'm writing about it!) I wonder if journalists think that their criticisms and mockery will shame Heidi and Spencer into submission? Clearly they have never watched "The Hills". They don't care what the nature of their coverage is as long as someone's talking about them.

What other "stars" do you wish the media would just stop talking about? Lindsay Lohan? Paris Hilton (although we must admit, she's been "quiet" lately)?

I couldn't agree more! Everytime someone mentions them or the stupid couple with all the kids, I just want to scream. Why do we care? There are so many important things going on in the world, and we are allowing these waste of space people to monopolize our time and energy. Just say NO, people!
