The Downfall of a Former Boy Bander

Once a teen heartthrob, Joey Fatone has fallen a long way since his *NSYNC days. Yes, I too used to swoon over his Italian flare, but now I just feel bad for him. Unfortunately, I witnessed his downfall while watching an episode of “Rocco’s Dinner Party” on Bravo. For no apparent reason, other than the Italian theme, Fatone was a guest on the episode. However, his true guest appearance ensued during the commercials.

Fatone starred in a Phantom Fireworks commercial. Commercials alone are a low blow–at least do it for a reputable company. I had to actually Google Phantom Fireworks, that’s how unheard of it is. Come on, Joey. I can deal with the off-Broadway shows, but the firework commercials have taken it too far.  In the battle between a paycheck and Fatone’s dignity, the paycheck clearly won.
