Does this mean that former BB housemates etc should not be treated with respect? I'm sure they don't all spend their entire lives walking the street thinking to themselves 'who's looking at me'
Why the heck would they enter the BB house in the first place for any other reason than so that people can look at them? The are a typical example of narcissistic people who want to be famous for nothing other than being famous, so yes, I would say they spend a great deal of their time thinking 'who's looking at me'.
I'm not saying they don't deserve respect, but talentless people who shout "look at me! Look at me!" can't really complain when people do.
