The phrase “15 minutes of fame” can mean more than simply someone who had a moment of fleeting fame. In fact, the dirty secret of Hollywood is the fact that even the most famous names in the industry have a shelf life of only so long.
So what happens after that? After all, many of them are still very young when they fall out of favor, so they have a long career still ahead of them. In that time, they turn to what us regular people would view as more of the “9-to-5 jobs.” Of course, as celebrities, these jobs are a bit different for them.

Simpson has continued her singing and acting efforts to a certain extent after that.
