The ugly side about Hollywood

This week, what started with one sexual scandal against Kevin Spacey became the ugly truth about a disturbed man hidden behind fame, success, and fortune, these 3 things that most of the people dream of achieving,  but as the Madonna song Hollywood says: 

how could it hurt when it looks so good?”

Up to now at least 15 men have come forward to reveal they also have been victims of the actor and executive producer of House of Cards, Netflix and just 3 days later an avalanche of sexual scandals against the actor has become public. The media is already speculating if his career will survive. It took decades to become The successful actor Kevin Spacey, but it took 2 days to be called from a predator to a monster, a sick man, that was built from an abusive childhood, as reviewed by his brother Randall Fowler.

The rape and sexual abuse allegations also surrounding Harvey Weinstein, Brett Ratner, James Toback has imploded a timing bomb of disgrace inside Hollywood.  It’s hard to fix things when even hallowed names are in the headlines: Dustin Hoffman has apologized after being accused of sexually harassing a 17-year-old intern in 1985. Kevin Spacey said he was seeking “evaluation and treatment” after allegations of sexual assault and harassment.

Hollywood seems like a glamorous model, in a pretty dress walking across a ballroom, but just as she smiles to the crowd,  an unthinkable detail appears, the beautiful woman has no teeth.  How could it be? You wonder to yourself.  It feels like a dream, where it was kidnapped and replaced by a nightmare.

If we look closely, behind the cameras, there are unbearable sexual scandals, drugs abusive, childhood stolen to greed and dead bodies found in hotel rooms. Is the media trying to sell the bad news or to give Hollywood a good scrub?

Every morning we wake up and we don’t know what’s going to be next. You’re almost afraid to get on your gadget to see what the new story is.
