Which may lead these previously well-mannered and smiley ladies to seek attention in other ways. And since narcisissim is a personality characteristic (as long as there’s not a concurrent serious character disorder), Fischoff told us that it’s “not necessarily amenable to therapy;” the only “cure” is finding another way to get attention. Lawrence told us that some people with a need for attention will start to act out and get “outrageous” (see: Lindsay Lohan posing with a gun pointed at her head.)
While Fischoff recommended that group therapy and anonymous forums where support from others going through the same thing can be beneficial (he points out that there are groups for former child stars who can’t cope with becoming obsolete), it’s difficult to imagine Anna Dello Russo or others on the street style circuit logging into “Tommy Ton Cast-Offs Anonymous.”
But maybe it’s the right time to set up that website.
