The road to stardom is often paved with amazing and devastating public and private events. In hour-long episodes of The Price of Fame, see the heartfelt stories of Shania Twain, Johnny Depp, Carrie Fisher, Patrick Swayze, Prince and Robin Williams. Whether it's turbulent family drama, harrowing substance abuse, outlandish spending habits or a combination of those and more, these celebrities all paid a hefty price for their fame. Giving viewers an intimate perspective on each story are personal accounts from the celebrity's family members and friends in addition to entertainment journalists who covered the rise, fall and sometimes rise again of the stars.
The life of an A-list superstar doesn't come easy; and Johnny Depp has learned this lesson the hard way. Known for his portrayal of eccentric characters in films such as Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Edward Scissorhands, Depp's success has also been met with harsh criticism. His famously lavish spending and $30,000 a month wine habit have left him nearly broke. Although adored by millions of fans worldwide, Depp's drunken moments of rage have also been well-documented and he is now attempting to reboot his life and career for the better.
The odds against Shania Twain becoming the biggest-selling female country music artist in history were against her. When both of her parents were killed in a car accident, the teenaged Twain struggled to raise her siblings. After linking up with then-Producer and future-husband Mutt Lange, Twain's career skyrocketed to awards and Billboard success with the release of her second album. Years later, when it was revealed that Twain's husband was having an affair with their assistant, her life and career began spiraling downwards. Alone, suicidal, and afraid, Twain was also left with a condition that robbed her of her singing voice. In a shock to the world, Twain went on to marry the husband of her ex-assistant.
