Since when did it become acceptable to report about a family's personal struggles with finances, illness, relationships, money, etc. ??? For example, because Julia Roberts happens to have enjoyed some success as an actress, that means it's OK to tell the world that she had a strained relationship with her sister, who was recently found dead from an apparent suicide, and her mother is a smoker who is not battling lung cancer. Right?
For just a few minutes I'd like to see what it would look if we did that to a non-famous person. Here are a few stories which purposely contain exaggerated truths (or outright lies) based on reports from "sources"-- much like we'd see in any of the gossip rags out there. This is purely fictional and I'm using random stock photos from public online sources.
Lisa Jones Faces Divorce

Her first marriage to Kevin Fuller, a salesman for a car dealership, ended after 8 years. They had two children together, Molly and Adam. Fuller pays $145 a week in child support and sees the children alternate weekends and every Wednesday evening for dinner.
If Lisa's second marriage ends in divorce she won't be receiving any child support since the couple have been unsuccessful at conceiving a child. Sources close to the couple report that Lisa has considered seeking help from a fertility specialist and she secretly blames Jason for the problem.
Bill Anderson FIRED!
Just as his $413 a week unemployment was about to run out, a miracle happened! Bill was hired by Singer Fiber Board as a production manager. Co-workers said he was not a good fit from the start. "We've been working here a long time and along comes this dude thinking he can change things! We knew his days were numbered." Bill reportedly attempted to streamline scheduling and claimed to be looking to increase productivity.
Unsubstantiated reports say he accepted a higher-paying position at another company.
Ashley Wilson -- Shocking Photos

Ashley had been dating Derrick Foster for nearly three months when he abruptly ended the relationship. Sources close to the couple say Derrick grew tired of her constant demands for more time together. (As of press time Derrick could not be reached for comment.)
Ashley appears to have abandoned her fit life and given in to the lures of potato chips and ice cream. "I don't know if she'll ever get into a size 2 again. It's sad to see this."
