Britney has checked out of rehab, Lindsay could be on her way back in and still no one knows who is the father of Anna Nicole's baby.
I realize that I don't even have to use these people's last names for everyone to know exactly whom I'm talking about.
This is exactly my point: Every day we're bombarded with stories of the latest escapades in the lives of overprivileged party girls.
While they may be entertaining, I worry about the big picture -- the effect these images have on young girls.
It seems as if there's no one for a girl to look up to anymore. Not even Miss USA can be counted on as a role model. Sure, the idea of a beauty pageant is a little archaic, but at least Miss USA was more than a pretty face.
She could be looked up to as a beautiful but also dedicated woman -- a woman who took an active part, at least for one year, in serving the greater community through different philanthropic efforts.
Thanks to 2006 Miss USA Tara Conner, even this image has been tarnished. She checked into rehab after drinking and doing drugs at nightclubs all over New York City. Conner ruined her opportunity to be a positive role model.
