What's the story?

VH1's CELEBRITY EYE CANDY gives viewers a dose of Hollywood's hottest stars as producers show still photos and video clips from the previous week's celeb happenings. In each half-hour episode, Celebrity Eye Candy's producers fill readers in on the week's celebrity news -- from stars strutting the red carpet to the nastiest divorce du jour. But instead of just reporting the news, the show's staff add their own often-sarcastic commentary and subtitles. In an episode that featured a montage of celebrities filling their gas tanks, the headline read: \"Stars put it in and start pumping.\" Made-up thoughts in \"bubbles\" accompany still photos, and mocking segments -- such as a recent one showing stars scratching their behinds -- regularly appear.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

Though silly, gossipy, and oftentimes gross, this show is pure fluff and likely to entertain teens in a celeb-obsessed culture. Whether they (or anyone) should be encouraged in that obsession is another matter altogether.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about what it means to be a celebrity. Why are we so fascinated with people that appear on the big and little screens? Are we giving them too much attention? How would you feel if footage of you working out or going shopping was shown on national television? Do celebrities have the same right to privacy as those who aren't famous?
