I see others are wondering why you think it is so hard. Lets see you are handsome,you have a wife,daughter and son who love you. Your life seems to be in order. I on the other hand am a 50 years old woman single for the first time in 31 years (not by choice)have had to sell my ranch and have lost my job. Yea I can see where being famous is a problem.

This is Tom's blog, and if you notice, he doesn't write but maybe every couple of months. I have gotten an email from him, but like you said, he's busy.

And as far as his comment about being famous, I don't know what his life is like, and I don't know what projects he's doing now (besides the Jesse Stone novels), but when you make a comment like that, it just seems that it rubs people the wrong way.

I suppose that is my point when a person makes a statment like that and you don't say why,, it does seem to be a bit much, like your full or yourself. Tom you seem like a nice person, someone I might like to go riding with, don't get me wrong, I don't want to bed ya, just be a friend.

I thought this was a blog about Tom Selleck's life...who is this Viper1044? Looks like now we know more about Viper than we do about Tom!!
Just an observation.

Blogger VIPER1044 said...

MR, TOAD..It was my my understanding,the blog site was set up for, people to express there opinion,s! The rules are to keep it clean, and no anonymous comments.I never read in any of Mr,Selleck,s comments that we couldnt stray from talking strictly about him ! i kinda of looked at it like friends chatting around the living room, (if we want to talk about, that we cleaned saddles today) i personally seen no harm done to Mr, Selleck blog! As for what i wrote, i was explaining my self for some errors i had made ! I wasnt trying to take any of Mr Sellecks thunder away from his blog site! Ive enjoyed Mr Sellecks work through the years. as many of us have...i just wanted to say thanks! thats all....i will have no more post on this site,so you can sleep easy at nights TOAD!

toadhopper422, My, Oh, My,
It looks like you have just found Mr. Selleck blog. You just signed up. There is nothing on your blog to let any of us know who you are? What is your story? and why did you chose the handle toadhopper422??? I'm sure Mr.Selleck finds alot of the postings on his sight interesting, as we all know yes, he is famous but he is still a normal everyday guy. As you see Mr. Selleck its hard being (not famous) to, there are those that seem to want to hurt others.

Sorry, people---I really didn't know what exactly a Blog was, until I came in here the other day. Thank you Viper1044 for setting me straight, as I didn't know what to expect. I'm am new to this computer stuff and frankly didn't think I could ever make it back here...as I had no idea how I got here!!! But with the help of my husband I made it back. I apologize to anyone I offended in my previous post. I haven't posted anything in my blog because basically I'm a pretty dull and boring person and can't think of anything that is really that interesting to post. (I guess that's my story) I picked toadhopper422 because it is a nickname I received at my job I worked at for 20 years. The 422 is my husband's badge number. We got married in 1973 and have one child. I am disabled now, and I haven't worked since January of this year. I guess that's some more of my story!!

Hi Viper,
I'm sorry for the misunderstanding too. No harm done....I appreciate your interest in my posts. I want to keep the nature of my disability not so public because I am guessing that these words will remain in cyberspace, uh, like FOREVER, maybe??? I don't know. But I will tell you that I may be released to go back to work hopefully around the middle of November of this year. It will make for a good Christmas this year, hopefully, although I just got the bill for my last hospitalization this past August, (I have no medical insurance) and it is about 1/3 of my yearly income. I guess I'll be making payments!!!! Things could be worse, though, so I am thankful that I've worked things out with the hospital and they are agreeable to that. Now, all that's left is to work things out with all the specialists called in on my case.....and the hell of it all is they still don't know what's wrong with me and they've medically ruled out that it has anything to do with my disability!!
Go figure. I suppose I'll just remain a medical mystery.....LOL I have my own diagnosis but they politely listened to me and dismissed it, as they probably should have. By the way, this was the third such hospitalization this year for the same thing.

Anyway, enough about my problems...I told you I was dull and boring.....LOL. I'll leave you with this...

My, Oh, My. you say we should use our own blogs to talk,, but I just check yours. You haven't started a post??? So now here you are on Tom's starting something. I also read on your blog that you say you are 5ft. 10in. tall, blonde, tan, and hot, what do you mean hot??? Is that in your own mind or is it the weather kind??? Just wondering??? I think I'd rather be short, auburn, chunky, and cool.

Hi, Tom. I find all this blogging stuff amazing. I am curious though. How do we find out what new stuff you are working on? Of course I have my tivo wishlist and it records whatever I want. But, it's always nice to know what might be coming up.

Best of luck.

You people are retarded to think this is really him. I contacted his management office and they are livid about this fake blog. Give it a little time, I'm sure this blog will be shut down soon.

It's hard being famous because you must live up to what the public expects you to be. One false move and the whole world knows about it.

And of course the whole world knows your business too. Cameras are always in your face. People want to know what you eat, how you sleep and even what your shit looks like. And when the cameras aren't in your face, they're hiding everywhere. You can't even breathe without someone knowing. And if you breathe wrong? It will be all over the news.lol

And then there are those who get a little out of hand and try to stalk you. It's worse than everyone knowing your business. Someone starts out being a fan and when they find out where you live, etc. they take things further. And if you don't jump to their every beckoning call, they take matters into their own hands and don't stop to think who they might hurt.

Being famous isn't easy because it means you need to be a lot more alert. It's rare to be able to relax and just enjoy life without the media in your face or a stranger interrupting a personal moment in life.

Of course not all is bad when you're famous, but life isn't perfect either.
