    A Brief History Of Vanessa The Stalker’s Shameless Celebrity Photography

    All’s fair in love and hunting famous people.

    Ah, Vanessa the Stalker. One of Reality TV’s most infamous bit characters.

    If you’re a “Jersey Shore” fan, you’ll probably remember her as Pauly D’s faithful lurker, who always had the poor DJ looking over his shoulder.

    But Pauly D wasn’t Vanessa’s only target. In fact, the self-proclaimed “Queen of the Selfies” has had her sights set on taking pictures with any and all celebrities for some time.

    And she’ll do anything to get the shot.

    Even if it means she has to take every opportunity to accost unsuspecting celebs at a moment’s notice.

    Like that time she posed with Travis Barker...and his kids…?

    Or when Slash was just not having it.

    No backdrop is too awkward.

    No photo too candid.

    Even her definition of “celebrity” is pretty loose.

    She doesn’t care if you look like a ghost.

    Or if you’re dressed like a Pink Lady from Grease.

    Or if you have something stuck in your teeth.

    And she certainly doesn’t care if you have no idea what’s going on.

    She doesn’t even care if you’re not facing the camera.

    Or if she’s caught mid-blink!

    As long as you’re a celebrity and sort of within the frame, we think Vanessa would call it a success.

    Even if you’re in a car.

    In fact, car selfies is a tactic she uses...

    No really, there are so many car selfies.

    Even blurry ones.

    And awesome ones.

    The celeb selfie counts as double if you lock in a photobomb!

    And sometimes, she provides a little context which can be useful.

    Other times, it’s the lack of context that makes the shot.

    The paps have caught her in the act a few times.

    But then we get to see the same pic from multiple angles!

    Sometimes her celeb subjects don’t always know they’re in the photo.

    Jeff Bridges has no problem being straight up creeped on.

    But it’s always far less weird if they’re in on it.

    But no matter how many celeb selfies she has…

    No one will ever compare to her one true love, Pauly D.

    Never stop stalking, Vanessa!
