Spotlight On Hillbilly Celebrities

October 13th, 2009 9:48am EDT
Hillbilly celebs
A hillbilly celeb is like a young NBA player who came from nothing. Before they were popular they would eat at McDonald's, belch and swear in public, and do whatever they wanted. But now they live in a much different culture.

There are plenty of celebrities that came from nothing and turned into something. But what makes a hillbilly celeb different is the typically uneducated unsophisticated behavior that everyone enjoys watching.

Britney Spears and sister Jamie Lynn are perfect examples of hillbilly celebs. They are from the small town of Kentwood, Louisiana, and before they were mu...

Three Best & Worst TV Shows Turned Into Big-Screen Films

The Dukes of Hazzard
With so many long-running series coming to an end lately, it hasn't taken long for message boards and fansites to buzz with ideas for big-screen reunions.

Jessica Simpson has taken aim at movie critics who call her films flops. The pop star/actress insists box office sales show she's actually a good luck charm for movies.

Unfortunately for Simpson, her last film, Major Movie Star, really was a flop. After opening in just eight cinemas in Texas in December, the film was released ...
