The other day, I was in line, waiting to check out at the grocery store when an unnamed tabloid caught my eye. It displayed Rene Zellweger and Lindsey Lohan on the cover, sporting titles like, "Look at Lindsey's new curves" and, "Trouble in paradise? An inside look at Kenny Chesney and Rene Zellweger's breakup". Do the people who write these awful things about our celebs not realize that their All-American idols are people too, and have the same rights as us, stating that we shouldn't exploit the hell out of them?
Now, I don't know about you, but I know quite a few people who act just like these columnists, who tell the bogus stories about "So-and-so's alien baby". These people, it seems, have no intelligence. And it doesn't stop there. No, they spread out to other peoples' lives, telling eachother about their best friends' being abused, their pregnant teenage daughters, their drug dealing sons. You could almost swear that these women are still in high school, where their drama would equal HUGE popularity points, gaining them acceptance into the Upper Crust.
So what would you do if you were on the receiving end of a piece of this juicy gossip? Would you turn to the person closest to you and pass on the disturbing tidbit? Would you squash the rumor and tell that person to talk to someone who cares, or to mind their own business? What would you consider to be the right thing to do in this situation, and an even more important question, would you do it?

Tabloids in my opinion are awful. Trash they sell, and, incredibly sell well.
Nice Blog. Regards :O)
