They're turning Paris Hilton's trash into cash.
There's a new website in town folks, and this one is literally scraping the bottom of the barrel. HollywoodStarTrash.com has hit upon an idea that turns dumpster diving into something quite, well, distasteful. They rummage through the garbage cans of Hollywood biggest stars and sell what they find. And as always, the infamous Paris Hilton tops the list of star junk.
What's on sale, I hear you ask? The list is quite disturbing.
For $50 (starting price) you can get yourself this used Paris Hilton deodorant. Mmmm.
For $100 (starting price) you can buy some used Paris Hilton envelopes. Great deal.
For the same $100 (starting price) you could treat yourself to some grubby make-up puffs.
And for a whopping $250 (starting price) how about Paris Hilton's drug prescription? Yes, they're serious.
SO, is all this just harmless profit?
Personally, I don't think so. Believe me, I have no love for Paris Hilton. I think certain celebrities are asking for a little punishment based on the the way they behave, and Hilton is the classic example of the 'media whore.' But to encourage digging through garbage for a soiled make-up puff or old prescription is just a sad indication of the times we live in.
Are we so desperate for fame and celebrity that we'll do anything to get close to it? Even if that means buying trash? Well, the website lists many of the items it has already sold, including empty coke cans and used q-tips. If there's an audience, our Internet culture will guarantee a supplier.
So I throw this out to you, the Wisebread readers. Would you buy trash from your favorite celebrity, or do you think it's just trash? I know one thing for sure. I wouldn't.
