Kim K. Is 1 example. Sex tape should have shamed her. Instead, she built a pseudo career on it.
George W Bush owns the title
James Patterson and Nicholas Sparks - Apparently you can become a famous writer without knowing how to write!
Anyone from Teen Mom - do I even need to explain this one?
Olivia Wilde - all her movies tank, but she still gets magazine covers and is treated like a major star!
Another Kim: Zolciak. After the public found out she was dating (aka escorting) a married super rich guy who paid for her townhouse, luxuries and children's luxuries, her infamy skyrocketed. She somehow attracted enough fans to have an itunes hit with the heavily auto-tuned "Don't Be Tardy For The Party", which was essentially made for her by Kandi Burruss and her people. Afterwards, we found out she ripped off her "friend" Kandi by not paying her more than a few thousand dollars compared to the few hundred thousand Zolciak made off the song. Finally, Zolciak inadvertently meets, gets knocked up by and marries a football player that results in a semi-successful solo reality tv show.
Since weebles wobble but they don't fall down, I'd go with Chris Christie.
Paulina Gretzky. All she does is Twitter, Drink and show her boobs. WHY is she famous. Oh that's right, because she Twitters, Drinks, and shows her boobs.
"Oh that's right, because she Twitters, Drinks, and shows her boobs."
And was lucky enough to be born rich
Be born rich with beautiful parents.

I got no problem with it.
The Honey Boo Boos
Bristol Palin. Knocked up, fucked up and jumped up.
Does her momma throw darts at a dictionary to find baby names?
Charlie Sheen. Okay movie actor from a Hollywood family. He went on to star in a bland, but very popular TV show. Abuses drugs so badly that he becomes publicly psychotic. Suddenly an icon and more popular than ever.
"Bristol Palin. Knocked up, fucked up and jumped up."
Good one! Hate her, she has the nerve to attack gays when she's only famous for being a teen mom and having a famous parent.
At this point Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan are getting more press and attention for being fuck-ups than for anything remotely related to acting.
Both became cult/camp icons because of their LACK of filmmaking talent!
Bill Clinton. At the 1988 convention, he gave an overly long nominating speech. The nighttime comics picked up on that, and made fun of it. Arsenio invited Clinton on. Bill played the sax. And the rest was history.
The Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson Douchebags
