    Most real famous people gain their fame through their work or accomplishments (movie star, professional athlete, etc.), becoming famous is just a by-product of that and many people that do become famous often comment how they miss the loss of privacy and anonymity.

    Beth just wants to be famous for the sake of being famous, I don't quite get what the desire in that may be, is it just an ego thing? or a poor self-esteem thing?

    She is already rich by extension of Howard, why bother trying to gain fame? I think I would rather be wealthy and anonymous than people bothering me all the time or being followed around by paparazzi.

    She has invested a lot of time in trying to become famous I suppose, she seems to find every single random event that nobody has even heard of just to have her photo taken, pictures of which will never be seen anywhere other than Dawsaloon. I think the best event she ever attended was that car dealership opening.

    Howard on some level must feel embarrassed and sad for her.

    Because she has the brain of a slow 12-year-old.

    she was a child model, her value as a person is girded in the constant approval of others, moreover, howard sees her as his alter ego, which compounds the pressure for her to perform

    She aspires to be a Kardashian for the much older generation, better late than never.

    She'll get her 15 seconds when the divorce settlement makes a few eyeballs bulge.

    Maybe it's Howard playing head games with her to make her fell she has to at least try to do something.

    Because she is a self absorbed, vile, gold-digging cunt.

    to try to make up for the shame and humiliation that haunts her from her "modoeing" days. it couldn't be this pathological and shameless if it wasn't coming from of a deep, deep psychic wound. at some point she would have just taken the hint, toned it down, and moved on.

    but instead, she's doubling-down on her Howard's efforts to make her famous.

    :facepalm:

    wherever there's a behavioral problem in an adult there's someone trying to "out-_________" their past, or their inevitable future.

    or both.

    like Howard................and Beefus...................and every Hollywood actress over 40 trying to out-diet and out-surgery old age/death.

    She has at some point in her life gotten the impression that she is a model
    and internalized that in a psychotic way.

    She is an ok looking woman. She keeps in shape. (anyone who runs a marathon deserves some respect imho).
    She has never understood that she doesnt have "extra" that makes someone a real model (or at least one that
    gets work).

    She must have felt the need to succeed at becoming the glamorous model of her dreams, and she has over time
    lost any connection with reality.

    She is far too old now to make anything of herself as a model, she does not have a background for any real work,
    she did manage to snag a neurotic narcissist who has a LOT of money. I am not sure if Howard is so Beff bound
    that he is trying to make it happen for her, or if she is doing all the work herself, spending his money desperately
    trying to get to her goal.

    I mean Howard had to bullshit the world into trying to believe that he was a "great" photographer so that he could
    start spreading "glamour" shots of his Beff for all the world to see. And still nobody cares.

    She has nothing of value to offer, fame would at least be an accomplishment.

    or 2015, she's losing her looks fast so he needs to stretch out the release time from one to two years now to keep up the fantasy that's she's still young and hot.
