So just the other day I was wondering about so-and-so who appeared on reality TV as such a legitimately nice person but after a few years of being in the spotlight turned out to be a snob.
I found the answer today in the Message version of Proverbs 27:21.
"The purity of silver and gold is tested
by putting them in the fire;
The purity of human hearts is tested
by giving them a little fame."
Ahhh, that dangerous little mongrel called fame.
