Actress sells awards on Ebay - May 14th 2009, 07:19 PM

So, if you guys remember me saying about that West End actress Kerry Ellis, the one who threatened her fans with pins
Well, she is selling ,amongst other signed show memorabilia, 2 signed people's choice awards that were given to the show not to her in particular but the whole London cast.
People I know have reacted mixed to this, some find it funny, some think its bad she's making money directly from her fans like that, and some are annoyed at the fact she's selling the ones that are for the whole company.


What do you guys think?

Yes I am aware I have no life in the fact I know all of this but do I care? Nope

If she has possession of them, I suppose they're hers, legally. I have no moral objections to this, but understand how someone could. All celebs profit from their fans, so that's a non-issue to me. The physical trophy from the award is.. well, it's just a hunk of metal/plastic/whatever that, in all likely hood, will mean more to her fans than it ever did to her.

Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.

I can't imagine selling something like that. I have trophies from sports and it would be like selling one of those. Each of those trophies has a story, something behind it. They mean something. I know this must mean something to her and I can't imagine how she is selling it.

I have seen other celebrities do this to raise money for charity but there is no where that says this is for charity.

I also think it is bad that she is selling them if they were awarded to the show and not her individually, she could have there permission but it also doesn't say.

Also it is the "Peoples choice theatre award" and I don't know about awards but to me that says people voted for this. The fact that she is selling them makes me think she doesn't care.

Well as long as they're entirely legally hers, I don't really care. It's kind of funny, actually

Despite the fact that the award is for the entire show, they are in her possession. I assume that somehow she obtained the awards legally, thus, even though they may represent the entire show, I assume they are her property. That being said, I think it's perfectly fine.

As for making money off of the fans, lol, that argument is a joke. Celebrities make money from where? FANS! How do movie stars get their money? FANS (also from the company but the fans give a lot). How do book authors get their money? FANS. So that argument is dismissed.

Is it really news that an actress is selling her awards? Because I see nothing in this that people need to know, or anything that would help them out in their daily lives in some way.

I think society is much too concerned with what celebrities are doing. If they are legally hers, they are legally hers to sell. Why anyone cares about this enough to put it in the news is beyond me.

Not around so much now that school's started

"Live a good life.
If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."
Marcus Aurelius
