Imagine having a life where once you were a big, big television star. How sweet would life be?
Think of it … adored by billions all around the world … banking thousands of dollars each week and [probably] banging tons of hot babes each single night.
However, twenty years later … things aren’t going so well.
In today’s fast living, mass consumerism, low attention span World … ou’re out of date, out of shape and out of cash so to earn a crust, you have resorted to flogging trailer-trash real estate via a crappy television network in Memphis, Tennessee.
This is not an ad for a pension company [though I did use the idea for Virgin Money a few years ago] it’s what I’ve found has happened to Erik Estrada … the bloke from ‘CHIPS’, better known as Officer Poncherello!
So this leads to the question … is it better to have ‘achieved major success’ than to have ‘never achieved it at all’? [I'm talking of 'achieving something', not just gaining notoriety for appearing on Blockbusters or Big Brother']
