Trend: Everyday Fame: Girls Gone Wild

Read the fasinating tale about the explosive growth (no pun intended) of Joe Francis, the founder of the "Girls Gone Wild" empire.

One interesting lament from Joe: "The women are changing, and that makes him sad. In the beginning, when 'Girls Gone Wild' cameramen first popped up in clubs, the women who revealed themselves seemed innocent—surprised, even, by their own spontaneity. Now that the brand is so pervasive, the women who participate increasingly appear to be calculating exhibitionists, hoping that an appearance on a video might catapult them to Paris Hilton-like fame."

Sounds like the makings of a Trilight Zone-style morality tale.
