They are breathtakingly beautiful, flawless on film and the object of countless fantasies. But reality doesn’t always align with the manufactured images shooting out of television screens. Some celebrities are hot for many more reason for what we realize. According to reports, some of the most beloved and famous women in American are infected with the sexually transmitted disease, genital herpes.
Moreover, the shame and humiliation associated with the disease can be so overwhelming that some will go to great lengths to cover it up. According to ABC News, an unnamed A-list celebrity with a net worth of more than $100 was sued in 2011 for $20 million for knowingly having sexual intercourse with an unsuspecting fan in Las Vegas. The sexual relations was captured on their cell phones “to relive the magic over and over again” and eventually resulted in an intense bidding war among porn companies, TMZ reported. The case was eventually settled out of court.
