I can be dramatic. I can get caught up in things that are not real and things that are meant for entertainment. I don’t think this is a bad thing because I don’t get so caught up in it that I don’t have my own real life. That being said: do you ever feel a connection with celebrities/stars that you’ve never met?
This past year, with my unorganized, chaotic life, I have come to begin enjoying a few daytime talk shows. My two favorites are Live with Regis and Kelly and Ellen. I want to be Kelly Ripa. I want to look like her, I want to have her job, and I want to be her. I also love Ellen. I think she is hilarious and does great things for people. These two shows have given me new things to think about – sometimes, but more importantly have given me a reason to not mope around – most of the time.
My celebrity connections do not stop there. There are plenty of other people that when I see them, I want to be them…while still being completely happy to be me. I get over-involved in things and give it my all and so I want to be a part of it and I think that is why I feel such a strong connection to celebrities sometimes.
What gets you through the days when you’re feeling down? Do you feel a connection to a certain celebrity – who and why? Do you think everyone has these connections?
