Strong Women Should NEVER Do These Things For a Man — or Anyone Else

Dear Poll: Why do these Stars Stay with these Men?

Celebrities are constantly in the public eye, and some people hold them to a higher standard since many young men and women look up to them as role models. Clearly no one is perfect, but I keep finding myself asking the same question -- "what are they thinking, or are they thinking at all?"

When it comes to relationships, we never know what happens behind closed doors, so a lot of times it isn't fair to judge other people's marriages, but when there's obvious delinquency or violent behavior going on, why do you think these public figures continually subject themselves to this kind of behavior? After seeing so many of their peers experience similar behavior, why do they so often turn a blind eye?

Britney was lonely and kev was a breath of fresh air, whitney had a problem and he told her it was okay, kate was/is the same, kim well she woke up that she didn't like being shouted at all the time. Kim felt out of love so as Britney. I say they're just like us. We make the same mistakes.

lol yea i reckon popgoestheworld is pretty spot on. i think its a mixture of wanting to prove people wrong, convenience, drama and passion mayb, plus some kids are involved, minus kate where i dont really no how staying with pete would b good for her child.

I think is unfair to single out the ALL of these cases...the women also had their own issues before going into the relationship.

i'm definitly on board with the drama thing.. i mean when you're in a relationship like that it's like you're the star of your own tragedy, if you see what i mean. all you need to do is like the image the relationship projects on you and your hooked. i used to be addicted too- until i realized not only it's not love, it doesn't even come close. it's two people stuck playing roles they created for themselves.

Afraid to be alone. They'd rather be with a loser than be alone.

Same reason every woman clings to a failing relationship . . . because they are in love, because when it's good it's fabulous, because they don't want to find someone new. Just because you're famous doesn't meant you aren't stupid.

Because it's all so romantic and dramatic, and you know, they're in loooove. I meant, look at Kate and Pete. He's a complete jack ass and their whole relationship consists of him trying to make up to her with romantic song lyrics, false promises etc. These people are addicted to drama and romance and consistently mistake those emotions for true love.
