Mackenzie Phillips has been on the Today show all day doing follow up interviews about her silly book and her revelations about sleeping with her father for years. (apparently Dr. Drew fixed her and she's a victim now). The people writing behind the scenes tell alls about Sarah Palin are fighting with each other (in the news) over who leaked who's book. Charlie Sheen is a train wreck (and happily does radio interviews about it). Fergie (the royal one, not the BEP one) isn't invited to the wedding. Snookie wrote a book, and based on the excerpts that've been published, all by herself, with no help from anyone who knows anything about grammar or structure (or class).
Do we REALLY care about this stuff, or do we talk about it because they keep putting it on the news, making it seem like so many people care that we need to know? Do people watch those shows and read the gossip rags because they really care, or because they're there?
Quick poll - raise your hand if you honestly care whether or not Phillips slept with her father, what Palin was like behind the scenes, or who gets to go to the wedding.

You don't see the value in someone who suffered horrible sexual abuse and drug abuse at the hands of her father speaking out? ...ashame
Sarah Palin has put herself and her family out there like that with her reality shows and paid gossip rag spreads...on multiple occasions.
Charlie Sheen is a celebrity...but drug abuse is certainly a current event
Snooki is BFF's with John McCain now...blame him for stoking that ORANGE flame. (she's more cultural current event)

I think it's a little of both. Do we REALLY care about some of this stuff, no, but is it interesting enough to watch a few minutes of and maybe see how others feel about it, sure. It may not all be what you would consider "current events" but I guess anything happening in the world could be considered current events....
