Exhaustion for Dummies: Celebrities in Crisis

Every time you turn around another celebrity is out of commission because of exhaustion i.e. extreme fatigue. Spare me! I don’t know about you, but I think exhaustion is code for being high on drugs or alcohol, suffering from the effects of bulimia or anorexia, or recovering from plastic surgery. The latest victim of exhaustion is Ashlee Simpson who recently admitted that she once had an eating disorder. How much do you wanna bet that she still has it? I think all she needed was a ham sammich on rye and her hospital stay would have been a short one.

Over the years exhaustion has been the blame for almost every major celebrity being sick and off the scene for a short period of time. Poor celebrities, it must be so hard living the life of luxury and right in the middle of the glitz, glamour, and getting everything your way done by other people that your body gives out from overexposure to the good life and you have to be admitted to the hospital, sometimes an IV must even be inserted to keep them alive. Note my sarcasm.

What the hell is going on? Don’t get me wrong I know that the life of a celebrity can be difficult at times, but exhaustion?! Exhausted from what? How many of us here in the city of Flint are exhausted and broke down from working for General Motors for 30 years or more? I’m sure my mom is raising her hand. My mother is exhausted, dammit! Yet everyday with her poor body beaten and health in bad shape she makes the painful trek to work on a daily basis. I’m sure she would love to check into Hurley Hospital and call in to work exhausted and have an IV replenish her system too. Well, I’m sure she could do without the IV, but you know where I’m coming from.

The part that really bothers me is celebrities continue to make millions while they’re out exhausted, and lots of it. If my mom calls in exhausted she’ll have to explain exactly what exhausted means and why it’s a valid reason for her absence that day. If that goes over well she may get one day off, but she better have her butt back at work the next day making the vehicles that so many of us are breaking our necks to buy. Note my sarcasm again!

You see, us everyday folks have to work very hard everyday for our tiny paychecks. We don’t like it, in fact we hate it but this is how we survive. You hear us complain, but do we ever call in exhausted? No! We have the decency to just call in sick!

Celebrities need to keep it real. If you want a day off please take it. You have my permission. I get sick of looking at your damn faces sometimes. Don’t feel obligated to make an appearance for me if you don’t want to. I’ll catch ya next time. Not!

Woo, all this writing is exhausting! I need four weeks away. I’ll catch you guys next month! *Thud*
