Now powerful figures such as Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein have come to light and demystified the industry. If you ever wanted to be a superstar and become famous, then you might want to reconsider your plans once you learn what it’s really like to live in the spotlight.
Hollywood is more than money, fame, red carpet appearances and millions of adoring fans. There is also shocking shallowness, abuse, heartbreak and more crime. Here’s a dark secret and scary story that demystifies the entertainment industry.
In a perfect world, a celebrity would stay out of trouble and have a successful career without any hiccups. But the truth is that accidents and sticky situations are a part of life. When things get too much for a celeb to handle, they call a fixer like Michael Sitrick to come to their rescue.
Sitrick has been a “spinmeister” in the industry for years, with a talent for twisting negative stories in the press into positive ones. He has worked for various popular clients, including David Lee Roth and disgraced NFL quarterback Michael Vick. Tackling controversy is his forte, and when a celeb is getting pounded by negative press, there’s no one other than Sitrick they’d want on their side. If a famous person has been caught in a comprising situation, and you suddenly see an influx of positive articles about them, it’s likely that Sitrick, or someone just like him, is hard at work.
