OUT: STARDOM // IN: REALITY TV STARDOM

Playboy JFK’s love life was believed to be filled with conquests, but none came close to his notable rumored fling with sex bomb Marylin Monroe. Rather than scorning the movie star, however, the public embraced her sultry rendition of “Happy Birthday” (said to have set the whole thing into effect), which is still lovingly remembered (and shittily reenacted) today. We don’t know if we can say the same about Ashley Dupre’s…talents, but rather than letting her time in the spotlight get her down, the former call girl managed to parlay her infamy into a Playboy shoot, an advice column with the New York Post, and a spot on VH1’s destined-to-be-cancelled Famous Food.
