Whether we are rich or famous we are guaranteed to have money.  The difference between the two is determined by our work ethic and how we earned our fortunes.  Famous people don’t really work for their money. They don’t do anything to earn money, yet they have tons of money at their disposal. Rich people have worked for their money, and they are wise about managing their money.  

If you had the choice would you rather be rich or famous?

I would personally rather earn my money than have it handed to me.  I feel that I would cherish my millions more if I earned them.  If my millions were handed to me I feel that I might take them for granted.

There are some people who have millions and millions of dollars, and they (in my opinion) haven’t earned their money.  I can’t believe that these people are rich since they didn’t earn their money; they are notoriously famous for infamous reasons

Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton have branded their own names into clothes, shoes, perfumes, makeup, and reality TV shows.  What is it exactly that these two girls do other than party at nightclubs?.  Who knew that international party girls could become television stars?  No one even knew the names Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian before the release of their infamous sex tapes, and now they have become household names. These are two girls who have definitely not earned their money.

Brody Jenner is a rich kid from Malibu who enjoys his money.  He has not been smart enough to turn his name into a perfume or clothing Brand like Kim and Paris.  However he has starred in his own reality TV show called The Princes of Malibu. He has also had guest appearances on other reality TV shows such as The Hills and Keeping up with the Kardashians.  Brody Jenner is Kim Kardashian’s step brother.  Brody Jenner is just a good looking guy who lives off his parent’s wealth.  His cars, clothes, and Malibu condo have all been paid with his parent’s money.

Something almost as disturbing as people with unearned money is people who earn millions of dollars but waste it away.  My second biggest money pet peeve is people who take their money for granted.  People like Lindsey Lohan and Britney Spears definitely earned their money by starring in movies and signing music, but they have wasted their money on alcohol, drugs, shopping, husbands, and rehab. 

I would think that if we have worked for our money, we should appreciate it more.  However, with Lindsey and Britney this is not the case.  If you earned a million dollars would you waste it away, or would you appreciate it more because you worked for it?
