We live in a very strange society. A society where people are rewarded for bad behavior. They are rewarded with millions of dollars, and their own reality shows. I am still not sure how I feel about the trend. So, in essence, what I am asking is, what do we think about the new Lindsay Lohan reality show? Are we just a celebrity hungry society, or are we making it all worse by encouraging it? I know, I know. We walk a fine line.
The Guardian put it really well, actually. What happens to Lindsay Lohan is up to Lohan. The clay she has in her hands to form her new life is hers, and whether we tune in to watch her reality show will (or should) not affect her personality or what she does. It is natural human instinct to want to watch someone try. Try at sports, or music, or in this case, to get her life back on track. Thing is, when you have been in a car going 80 at a wall for five years, is it possible to stop and save yourself, or do you still end up hitting the wall? The big irony here is, we will know the answer to that once the Lindsay Lohan reality show is out. For now, all we can do is speculate.
Truth is, we wish the star well. That position cannot be easy, but in the same breath, her fate is her own. We are just along for the ride, and that is just the way she wants it. No one wants to hit a wall alone.
