The Ick Factor

I see a lot of celebrity headlines tick by (via feeds and direct site visiting), but few things elicit a visceral ick factor response for me like news about Nadya Suleman, who recently landed TV and book deals, and anything related to PR-hungry Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, for whom exclusive wedding photos are now available (note: I'd be hard pressed to call any Speidi content "news"). Obviously, I don't know these people personally, and in a perfect world and with a peaceful, utterly accepting heart, I would love to give them the benefit of the doubt about their intentions. But I trust my instinct like nothing else, and the ick factor is hugely palpable.
