As I was watching Jon & Kate Plus 8 last night (don't judge me, I freely admit my reality tv addiction) and they were discussing how public things have become about the issues they've been having and how inescapable the public eye is, I got to thinking...
Could I handle that kind of fame? Could you?
Can you imagine being photographed every time you leave the house, no matter what you're wearing or what your hair looks like?
Could you manage being followed while driving?
How enjoyable would family outings be if a band of photographers was camped out nearby with their lenses aimed at you?
What would it be like to have people call your name in public? Seek you out for an autograph or picture? What if that happened during a romantic meal? Or a not-so-happy conversation?
Could you give up your privacy in exchange for fame and fortune? Could you?
