Fame is fleeting, and people pass in and out of the zeitgeist all the time. But sometimes celebrities get yanked out of the spotlight in the most bizarre, dramatic way possible.

We're talking about the Sham-Wow guy getting his face bit off - or Danni Mathers nuking her modeling career over just being just plain mean.

Terrance Trent D'Arby killed his career by killing his name. So dumb, it was such a fine name.
