“In a cafe society, the major inhabitants of the world of the celebrity – the institutional elite, the metropolitan socialite, and the professional entertainer – mingle, publicity cashing in one another’s claims for prestige.” – C. Wright Mills
Brooke Mueller is house hunting! I’m not exactly sure why this is such a big deal but if you examine this quote by Mills, you can see why columnists are covering this. Most people wouldn’t care if Mueller was buying a pad or no but because she is Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, people seem to care a little more.
Mueller, purposely or not, is using Sheen’s publicity and gaining her own level of prestige.
