Pam claims fame makes you bonkers

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

STRICTLY Come Danc­ing star Pamela Stephen­son says fame makes you MAD.

Pamela is a qual­i­fied psy­chol­o­gist and her stud­ies have led her to the con­clu­sion that be­ing fa­mous sends you bonkers.

The 62-year-old New Zealan­der ( above), who is mar­ried to co­me­dian Billy Con­nolly, says she can’t un­der­stand why ev­ery­one wants to be fa­mous and reck­ons fame should come with a health warn­ing.

While re­search­ing telly doc­u­men­tary The Fame Re­port, which aired on More 4 last night, Pamela says she dis­cov­ered the neg­a­tive side to fame.

She said: “The re­ceived wis­dom is that fame will bring you all the money, at­ten­tion, sex and love you ever wanted. It will cor­rect all wrongs and you’ll never want for any­thing ever again.

“But the re­al­ity, I now be­lieve, is that fame is a trauma. Once celebrity is achieved, how­ever briefly, things will never be the same again.

“There ought to be a warn­ing on the la­bel.”
