Celebrities that have gotten up to 88

Susan Boyle

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

Remember Susan Boyle? That was a pretty brief 15 minutes huh?

Well I for one am glad she made it up to 88 so quickly…I remember feeling seriously disappointed when a friend sent me her now famous Britain’s Got Talent performance.

Thing is, when someone links me an American Idol-type video I’m expecting to see some carnage: I mean I only clicked on it out of morbid curiosity. I want to watch them crash and burn, I want to feel better about myself watching some poor freak like Willie Hung. I definitely DO NOT want to see some uplifting tale of an ugly duckling / diamond in the rough / blah blah blah.

Well I think Susan Boyle’s newfound lack of fame teaches us one thing: pretty people will always win, no matter how much we may pretend otherwise.

Well here you go Susan, your last moments of fame:

Blossom and her crazy hats got up to 88 a long time ago.

Guess what? The actress who played Blossom actually has a name! (And its not ‘Blossom’.) It’s Mayim Bialik, and she looks to be staying at 88…

John Stamos

Friday, August 7th, 2009

Perhaps best known as ‘Uncle Jesse’ from Full House, John Stamos has been clinging to Hollywood’s B-list for years. After Full House he had a stint on ER and did some commercials for 1-800-COLLECT, which made this list of Dumbest Celebrity Product Endorsements of All Time.

Oh John, we all loved you in Full House but there comes a time in every actor’s life when they have to accept that they have gotten up to 88.

The Wayans Brothers

Remember the Wayans Brothers? They were huge in the 90’s, check out everything they did. In those days I used to think Keenan Ivory Wayans was two people, like Keen + Ivory Wayans. It was probably all because of Mo’ Money.

When was the last time you heard about Kato Kaelin? He definitely got up to 88, and probably went back to the pre murder days so he could still crash OJ’s couch.

Michael J. Fox

Sunday, July 26th, 2009

I hate to say it, but Michael J. Fox has been up to 88 for a while. Luckily, he’s probably used to it after all the Back to the Future movies.
