Julie Spira & Dr. Drew Pinsky


Dr. Drew Pinsky, host of syndicated radio show, “Loveline” and VH1’s “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew” along with his coauthor, Dr. Mark Young were at a book signing event in Los Angeles where they discussed their new release,?The Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism Is Seducing America.

Back from a whirlwind book launch trip in New York, we heard the details about the stars and their narcissistic behavior.

According to the two, from the first-ever study of narcissism among celebrities, there are seven key factors to be aware of which include the following:

1. Vanity
2. Exhibitionsism
3. Exploitativeness
4. Entitlement
5. Self-sufficientcy
6. Authority
7. Superiority

The two discussed classic cases including Paris Hilton, Lyndsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and Anna Nicole Smith. It was noted how obsessed the children have become in watching these stars and sadly viewing them as role models to follow.

With social networking, twittering, and facebook walls becoming as common in one’s daily life as brushing your teeth, exploitation is not only acceptable, but for those ignoring these social networking sites, one can appear to be left behind. I guess we can thank the reality tv shows and the tabloids for aiding in this problem. Check out the book. It’s interesting and an eye-opener.
