Collective memory question: how soon do we forgive... (insert your celebrity here, and then add the time it takes, in your opinion, to forgive them).

Bonus lurve for explaining your rationale /theory.

I thought of this while watching vh1 – Michael Jackson came on.

Not sure I’m doing this right, but here goes….

Lionel Richie. His discography. I say, we should forgive him in 2048.

Brad Pitt for being a piece of crap to his wife Jennifer. I forgave him quickly, because I feel like I have to accept men do things like this all too often.

Michael Vick for dog fighting. Never. Well, if you count that I think he has served his time and should be allowed to play ball, but to me that is not fogiveness, just that he has rights.

Daphne Blake will never be forgiven for not once appearing topless. Sure she wore the occasional bikini, but never got them out for the lads. She was the ultimate cock tease :¬(

So many to choose from:
Arnold Schwarzenegger for cheating in his own home: never, you don’t cheat in your own home, ever. And cheating anywhere is bad, but in you own home with the hired help? Major jerk.
Casey Anthoney for knowingly let all those people look for her daughter when she knew she was dead: never forgive. She doesn’t deserve forgiveness.

Michael Vick – never. Animal abuse is inexcusable.

Janet Jackson for the wardrobe mishap – never. Publicity ploy, desperate, shameless.

Celine Dion had a “last tour” about 10 years ago because she said she was retiring forever. Of course, she came back. Inexcusable, shameless.

Casey Anthony – I would like to see her miserable for life.

Woody Allen for that creepy thing where he married his step-daughter he seems to have been forgiven within a couple of years.

Chris Brown for beating Rhianna, forgiven within a year or so.

Martha Stewart for insider training – forgiven almost immediately upon her release from prison.

Unforgivable = Phil Spector, Robert Blake, O.J. Simpson, Michael Vick, Pete Rose, and all those doping athletes.

Robin Williams and Drew Barrymore for their addictions.
