Answer:  TOOK THE STARES

(Of course she did.  So many people get into the performing arts to satisfy their need for attention.  They want to feel loved.  A lot of them are actually pretty insecure, so they have a strong desire for affirmation.  And, once they achieve a certain level of fame, many of them develop an attitude of entitlement.  This is where a lot of them then get in to trouble.  I’m sure you’ve been seeing a lot of these *trouble* stories on the news lately.

Stairs to Stares!  Good pun.  None of the clue words came up as new, and only two of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “suheo” and “teptie” before.  The answer letter layout was outstanding!  I found nothing obvious there, at all.  It took me a few looks before I came up with the answer/pun.  The cartoon does a great job of showing the gawkers and the staircase!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    But it looks like she is descending the stairs, not ascending!

    I think she’s going up, looking over her left shoulder. But, her right hand on the left railing does make it look a little awkward, muse. — YUR

    You make a good point about the insecurity of some show business performers. This reminds me of Barbra Streisand and Marilyn Monroe.

    I think Barbra uses the stage as a shield from the public, and her friends shield her when she’s off stage.

    Poor Marilyn wanted so much to be loved, but the people who did love her, like Eddie Fisher and Joe DiMaggio, wasn’t enough to give her contentment. She ended up falling victim to some real cads like the Kennedy brothers. I don’t know if her death was suicide or accidental overdose, but emotionally sensitive people need to do like Barbra by staying away from but that rat-pack crowd, or they will drive you to drink, drugs, and, maybe even suicide.
