Chloe Lattanzi Talks To Media About How Fame Messes You Up

Chloe Lattanzi who has been speaking out about her battle with her addictions however can’t seem to see the irony in talking about how “fame messes you up” to the media.

Chloe who is Olivia Newton-John’s daughter also was on the reality show Rock The Cradle in her quest to build her singing career. She did not appear to be in a good head space when she was on the show and the good news in in 2012 she went to rehab after admitting to having a problem with Xanax, alcohol and cocaine.

The Daily Telegraph reports:

The Australian singer and actor’s 27-year-old daughter, Chloe Lattanzi, said she ­recently had intensive rehab to kick a reliance on cocaine and vodka, and treat spiralling ­depression.

“I was at a hotel in Santa Monica with my mum and some friends, and out of nowhere I had a complete meltdown. I’d been mixing alcohol and Xanax, and was in a semi-psychotic state,” Lattanzi told UK newspaper the Mail on Sunday about an episode in September 2012.

“Fame totally messes you up. I don’t blame my mother for my problems, but I would never want to be famous or raise a child of my own around the cult of celebrity.

“It ruins lives.

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it is that you can’t be fragile in this business, or else you end up like Lindsay Lohan.

“That’s not meant as an ­insult. I know she – and a lot of celebrities and celebrities’ kids – are struggling with ­demons and addictions. It’s disturbing that everyone wants to be famous these days.

“Our culture is sick.”
Here she is singing on Rock The Cradle

Hopefully she is getting stronger, however if she thinks fame messes you up she should not be bothered talking to the media. She has also talked to Woman’s Day about this in the past few months. Keeping your name in the papers continues your “fame”.  Go out get a normal job or go to University and live a normal life that might keep her on the straight and narrow. Just saying.

Killer Karaoke – Craptastic TV Coming To The Comedy Channel

If you laughed when I watched the clip above from Killer Karaoke the super trashy tv show you will be pleased to know it is coming to the Comedy Channel on June 9.

The show is where contestants sing whilst weird things happen to them like getting zapped like above or being dunked in a tub of water full of snakes.

Sure it is low end reality TV but it does not pretend to be anything else.

It is hosted by Steve-O who is from Jackass and Dee Snider from Twisted Sister is the announcer.

Killer Karaoke starts on Comedy Channel starts on Sunday June 9 at 7.30pm

Monica Lewinsky Rumoured To Be Going On Celebrity Swan

It is not often I would think it is a negative thing that a person goes on a reality TV show, however in the case for Monica Lewinsky it is a definite no.

There are rumours circulating that she may be going on Celebrity Swan, which is a celebrity version the radical plastic surgery show, The Swan where they transform ugly ducklings to swans.

Sure if it was Dancing With The Stars, or Celebrity Apprentice I would be saying sure go for it. But this show is not just getting a new pair of boobs it is radical change and for someone as intelligent has her it would be surprising that she would.

Daily Life have a great article on this and also on how she has been despised, blamed and made fun of since her affair with President Clinton emerged. As they say she was 22 years old he was the President, just a slight power imbalance there.

Also it was reported last year she has signed a $12 million book deal to write a “tell all” book about the affair so she doesn’t need the money. Chances are she won’t be on the show.

The other celebrity name to be talked about as being on the show is Erin Moran aka Joanie from Happy Days. I would have thought going on Celebrity Rehab would be more appropriate for her.

Dating Show The Choice Airs Tuesdays on Eleven – Is This Going To Be So Bad It Is Good?

The Choice starts tonight on ELEVEN and it is the dating show with a similar format to The Voice, not the singing but the turning chairs.

Is this show going to be so bad it is going to be good.

It involves D grade celebrities including our own Sophie Monk, a couple of Jersey Shore guys and surprisingly Tyson Beckford and Rocco DiSpirito. Obviously it is not a reality show without a Kardashian on it with brother Rob on it as well. In this first episode Pauly D is one of the bachelors.

Surprisingly the host is Cat Deeley.

If you want the run down on how it works courtesy of TV Series Finale:

Filmed in front of a live audience, each episode begins with four eligible bachelors sitting in rotating chairs, unable to see the sexy singles looking for a date with fame. In the initial “Blind Round,” each celebrity can only use the suitors’ voices –- as they share information about their life, passions, turn-ons and turn-offs -– to help himself decide if he’s interested.

When the celebrity likes what he hears, they pull their “love handle,” which spins the chair around to bring him face-to-face for the first time with his potential mate. If more than one celebrity pulls the handle, they must battle it out for her affection until the sexy single gets to choose which one she wants to date.

Once each celebrity has chosen three ladies, they enter the “Speed Choice” round, where each woman has just seconds to convince the celebrity to sweep them off her feet to the final round.

In the last round, love is on the line when host Deeley poses a challenge question to each of the team’s final two. The celebrities must then make “the choice” between each of their two remaining ladies, whisking one away on a dream date and leaving one in no man’s land.

The Choice on Eleven starting on tonight and on every Tuesday at 8.30pm.

Adam Levine Thinks He Is Higher Up The Reality TV Food Chain Then Honey Boo Boo

Coach on The Voice, Adam Levine, has never been shy in voicing his opinion, in fact he has even been known to be disparaging about reality TV talent shows. Clearly not the one that he is actually on….

This time he has unleashed on another reality TV star Honey Boo Boo because clearly he thinks that he is the only person who can make money out of the reality TV genre.

In fact he is so freaked out by the show he seems to pegging the decline of modern civilisation on the  seven year old beauty pageant star.

In an interview to GQ magazine he said:

“Seriously, Honey Boo Boo is the DECAY of Western civilization. Just because so many people watch the show doesn’t mean it’s good. So many people witness atrocities and can’t take their eyes away from them, but that doesn’t mean they’re good. That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That’s. Ever. Happened. It’s complete fucking ignorance and the most despicable way to treat your kids. Fuck those people. You can put that in the magazine: Fuck those idiots. They’re just the worst. Sorry, I’m so sensitive to that—like, I don’t know, man, it’s upsetting. Just to clarify, I said, “FUCK THOSE PEOPLE.”

Adam seriously needs to get a perspective on Honey Boo Boo, it may be exploitative, but is it so bad that this dirt poor family is making some money. Sure it might not meet his white middle class sensibilities but it is just reality TV show.

For those who want to make their own opinion about the show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo premieres on Discovery Health on 31 January at 8pm.
