While surfing the Net, I could not help but notice that celebrities or showbiz people cannot keep a relationship going for very long… Being naturally curious, I tried to figure out why.
To start with, celebrities are not like you or me. Due to affluence, their life jackets are much bigger and more buoyant than ours. They have the means to weather a romantic (or financial) storm much more easily than we do. And since they are aware of this, they are more inclined to part company with their lover than the rest of us.
When a couple breaks up, it usually means that one of the partners will leave the shared residence and find another place to live. For ordinary people, it is not always easy. The cost of moving into a new place can be exorbitant and can exacerbate an already tense situation.
But for wealthy people, this is not a problem. They all own a secondary (and often a tertiary) residence and when things get unpleasant, they simply move out of the primary abode.
We have to grin and bear it… they just grin and move out. This is why celebrities jettison their partners about every three years… because they can.
A celebrity knows a lot of people, many more than a mere plebeian, and it is fairly easy to find a new partner. Many men or women are like moths; they cannot resist the bright flame of fame and often get burned in the process…
Almost all of our relationships begin and most of them continue as forms of mutual exploitation, a mental or physical barter, to be terminated when one or both parties run out of goods. Wystan Auden
Soon or later one runs out of goods and wants a new trade agreement.
If everybody was rich, nobody would ever stay in the same relationship indefinitely. Why should they? If parting was easy, people, like butterflies, would skip from flower to flower. If everybody was wealthy, God forbids, it would be total chaos.
This is why the richest showbiz people and politicians secretly congregate every 2 years to prevent this Armageddon scenario. They gather to keep the masses poor and incapable of social mobility.
Why do you think that “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses…” is inscribed on a bronze plaque inside the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty? Because we need poor people to feel superior and boss them around.
