Amazing or Unbelievable is the word for this. What can’t humans do for money and fame. Either these stories are mere allegations or scandals, they always have underlying truths
This isn’t exactly a story or a theme that can only be seen in the entertainment industry, since people are all too familiar with women and men( especially womenfolk) in the workforce looking to land that big promotion by sleeping with their superiors. However, it becomes a tad more salacious when it involves the Hollywood elite, and the potential to reach international fame.
When it comes to Stradom, whether it’s an enemy selling out the secrets of stars, or they have confessed to the act – they are all named as someone who slept their way to the top.
Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey is best known for her sultry appeal and bright red lips but she also gave herself a name as the woman who slept her way through the industry in 2014. Her second album, Ultraviolence, features a track called “F***ed My Way Up To The Top” and when she was questioned by press about the lyrics, she admitted it was a “commentary” on her own life.
Poison singer Rita Ora supposedly slept with “20 dudes” in a bid to kick start her career, according to her one-time boyfriend, Rob Kardashian. When the pair broke up in 2012, Rob went on a crazed Twitter rant all about how he had been cheated on just so his girlfriend could boost her own career. He tweeted: “She cheated on me with nearly 20 dudes while we were together. I wonder how many she will sleep with now we’re apart?” Then in a separate tweet: “I’m actually disgusted a woman could give up her body to more than 20 dudes in less than a year’s time trying to start a career”.
It was his older sister, Khloe Kardashian, who managed to calm him down when she tweeted: “Rob, be nice kid”.
When Kendra Wilkinson went on the UK reality gameshow I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here, she revealed what life was really like living in the Playboy Mansion. Kendra first went into the mansion when she was just 18-years-old, after Hugh Hefner took a liking to her when she posed as a naked, painted lady at one of his parties.
She told a fellow contestant on the show, British presenter Melanie Sykes, that, “He asked me to be one of his girlfriends and I was like I don’t know what that means but hell yeah I’m there. I was living in the smallest apartment and I was praying for anything to get me out of there”. She then revealed that she did have sex with Hefner although none of the girls were obliged too.
Since she lived as one of his “girlfriends” full-time, she has had two reality television shows, Girls Next Door and Kendra On Top. Her net worth is currently at an estimated $6 million. Not bad for a girl who just showed up to a party wearing body paint.
Actress Karrine Steffans prides herself so much on being a “video vixen” (someone who has appeared in multiple music videos by famous rappers) that she even wrote her own book titled Confessions of a Video Vixen. Model Tyra Banks turned her nose up at the book, which details all the famous men that Steffans has slipped into bed with over the years. How did Steffans then retaliate to this kind of snobbery? She hit right back with the cold, hard truth.
In an interview with Aalbc.com, Steffans said, “There are people like Tyra who are hypocrites. Women especially, who have slept their way through their whole careers. And it’s not a secret within the Hollywood circle
When Lil’ Kim first started out, she gave herself a much needed career boost by climbing into bed with Notorious BIG. The only problem was his then-wife, Faith Evans, caught them both in the act. In 2012, Evans went onto the The Wendy Williams Show and spoke about how she caught her husband and the “Lighters Up” singer right in the act. She counts that moment as the one that ended her marriage in 1997. To make matters worse, Evans spoke to Lil’ Kim at a party and tried to congratulate her on competing in the Dancing With The Stars competition but the only reply she got was, “Who is that?”.
Lil’ Kim went on to become a Grammy award winner but things took a wrong turn, when in 2005, she was thrown in jail for a year. She had been caught lying to a federal grand jury whilst trying to protect friends who were involved in a shooting outside Manhattan radio station four years previous. It’s a good thing sleeping with someone’s husband and throwing shade isn’t a criminal offense because Lil’ Kim is guilty of both.
Farrah Abraham is one of the more successful breakout stars from the 16 and Pregnant series and there’s a reason for it. After she was featured on the show, she next moved onto their spin-off series, Teen Mom, but she had her sights set on even bigger stardom. In 2013, there were big rumours online that a sex tape existed and she was the star.
Overnight, she became a worldwide topic of conversation and landed her own show, Being Farrah. She was also paid $500,000 by Palazio’s Gentleman’s Club in Austin, Texas to star in their shows for the year of 2014. Currently, she stars as a main cast member of Teen Mom OG.
At just 16-years-old, Courtney Stodden married 50-year-old actor Doug Hutchison and shocked the world with their relationship. The pair clearly had a mutual agreement; he would help her become the famous model that she wanted to be and in return, Hutchison got a young, stunning wife. Courtney’s first taste of fame was enhancing her tiny body with a breast augmentation after she went from a C-cup to a DD-cup.
Hutchison is Courtney’s manager and he has landed her jobs on the UK’s Celebrity Big Brother, a one-off episode of Couple’s Therapy and, to no one’s surprise, her own sex tape. In the tape, Courtney can be seen talking to the camera enjoying herself solo. She cut a deal with Vivid Entertainment for the tape and said that she would be donating all proceeds to charity. She has also released three singles but chances are you haven’t heard any.
There a few options you have after your sex tape leaks. You can either pretend it’s not you, take whoever leaked the tape to court or make it official and reap the benefits of overnight fame and fortune. The third option was what Kim Kardashian chose to do and she became an international superstar, a reality television star that everyone loves to hate
Karrueche Tran – Attracts All Hip Hop Artists
Karrueche Tran can now be seen on cooking specials with Kylie Jenner or riding motorcycles at Coachella with Christina Milian, but everyone seems to wonder how she became famous in the first place. While her tumultuous relationship with Chris Brown after he split with Rihanna was a huge catalyst in getting her name in the headlines, Brown wasn’t the only man romantically linked to Tran over the years. Ray J, Rob Kardashian, and The Game have all been said to have had “encounters” with Tran; yet it was Chris Brown that ultimately helped to gain her the fame she so desperately craved.
Lindsay Lohan may have started her career as a child actress, but the issues in her personal life have become front and center in the eyes of the public. Romantically linked to a few celebrities in Hollywood, the world didn’t know just how many notches were on her bed post until a very telling In Touch Weekly spread in 2014.
Lohan was staying at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and supposedly wrote down names of sexual partners, which was then revealed in the magazine. While some claim the list was fake, it’s impossible to ignore that there is a connection between Lohan and each of the names on the list.
Whether above is true or not, these are celebrities who are loved or hated by the World. But the truth remains that they are rich and famous. However they got there, is the story only them can narrate.
