This is what you call a "light" read. I also gave it 4 stars because I did not agree with some of the list. However, if you want a light read about Hollywood hypocracy, this is a good read. It will make you laugh because it is hard to believe how ignorant or belligerent some of these people can become. They almost always start believing that they are special & far more advanced than the rest of us. Andrea Peyser does not hold back, she is very aware of how two-faced these Celebutards can be. Their sense of entitlement is told in a very humorous way. It is a good quick read that I enjoy once in a while, to escape the real problems of the world. It is a good escape book. Just do not let the idiots get you upset. That would defeat its purpose.

'Never discuss religion or politics' - a wise old adage that should be adhered to in the workplace, in places where alcohol is consumed, and by celebutards. Unfortunately during the election year of 2008 many entertainers opted to use their lime-light opportunities to spout their political opinions, operating under some misguided notion that regular folks need to be told by the Hollywood Elite what to think. Much of what they said was condescending, insulting, and offensive. I found it curious that people who make their living in such a competitive field, a field with a shelf life, a field wherein the product is a luxury item that is easily cut from a family budget during rough times, could be so utterly stupid. As the weeks went on a growing list of formerly admired entertainers was being compiled in my mind - a list of celebutards who would no longer be the recipient of my entertainment monetary and time allotment.

That brings us to Andrea Peyser's incredible book. As a discriminating consumer, my money and time was well spent on this witty, timely, thoroughly enjoyable narrative. I laughed (out loud and often); I cried (blessed confirmation that I was not alone in this); and most important - I was entertained !!!

As an aside: During the last couple of weeks it seems the entertainment center has shifted from Hollywood to D.C., what with the daily installments of drama and comedic flair. It's called irony.

While I may agree with some of the political positions taken by some of the "celebutards" that Ms, Pyser skewers so brilliantly--the underlying reality that she so deftly exposes is the need of the consuming public to take them any more seriously then their neighbors or friends.

The argument that entertainers have as much right to free speech as anyone else turns stale when "speech" is a commodity to be purchased by fame money and access to constant media outlets.

Celebrities have become the golden calfs of the current age...
Andrea Pyser has done a great job of beginning to melt them down.

This book is a great look into the double speak of certain celebs that really don't know what they are talking about when it comes to politics and world policies. Sean Penn holds up Hugo Chevez as a hero like figure, yet in Hugo's world there is no free speech and gay rights are non existent, in fact gays are persecuted, so what does Sean really believe? Al Gore and Mike Moore are just unfathomably liars, to put it mildly. Liberals without an open mind will not like this book, but it makes some very good points, but conservatives might find some issues with it as well. One more issue, M. Moore continues to harp on the fact that health care in some European countries and other socialist leaning countries is free, but the truth is that citizens of these progressive societies pay up to 70% in taxes, thereby making health care way more expensive then in a free market society.

Picked this book up for a penny, and the penny would have been put to better use by tossing it into a fountain and making a wish. This is just a horribly written and produced compilation of gossip rag tidbits that have been tossed at the public for years. Nothing new to be read or learned, and the worst part of it all for the so-called writer of this mess, is that it makes her look worse than the celebutards she gossips about in this silly book.

I have always found it so odd that folks that have acheived fame could not possibly have a valid political point to make. Like the job of actor or entertainer somehow makes someone less valid than a bug exterminator (Tom DeLay-R) Pro Footballer (Heath Shuler-D) or TV Weatherperson (Sara Palin-Party of Stupid). But hey, I guess Al Frankin, Clint Eastwood, Sonny Bono, John Hall, the Governator and Ronny Reagen should have stayed with those day jobs before running for office, right? It makes this book pointless, as Andrea Peyser just goes into rant mode for the bulk of it. I could find her gripes about Alex Baldwin's hypocrisy - being a person for peace and screaming obscenities into a kid's answer machine? - valid. Al Gore's infamous carbon footprint? I'll bite. Madonna? Baby-shopping and religion hopping. Shooting fish in a barrel, that girl.

However, Jimmy Carter is not really a "celeb" or a "debutante," and his works at diplomacy are hardly ill-founded. And the tease and insinuation that George Clooney is gay are beyond useless; they make Peyser into the sleazy bozo she claims to be so angry about. Had Andrea ever listened to Bruce Springsteen's well-spokeness or seen his actions or done anything other than listened to his records, she'd realize tha man consistantly puts his money where his mouth is and follows up. She thinks that being a media personality and having an agenda is a bad thing? Dear Madame, YOU'RE ON TV. If you wanna play journalist, start acting like one. Innuendo and knocking what you don't understand doesn't make a book like this any more credible than 30 minutes of Glenn Beck's bird vomit.
