Someone who comes on cam nude to a Yahoo "BBW" chatroom, when there is no such a thing as big and beautiful. Gets mad for being asked to show nipples after she "flashed" by covering her breasts. Whines incessantly and puts down people online, but wouldn't do so in person. Works part-time because she used all the valuable time on the chatroom. Posted photos of her faces in different ways. Writes blogs putting down others when everything is really all her own fault, in order to gain sympathy.
That wanda_your_bbw_fantasy is such an attention whore.

A type of whore which consistently participates in questionable activities in order to receive even the most negligible amounts of attention, often willing to pay cash money to receive little or no attention.
Man, that Kyle Harper is such an attention whore. He just threw $10,000 dollars away to receive miniscule amounts of attention.

A person who, regardless of whether or not they are attached, will seek out the attention of other males/females to make themself feel important. Usually found on internet forums and voice programs using whatever charms, bodily parts, etc. they may have to make themself appear more attractive to the opposite sex, even though it couldn't be farther from the truth. Some attention whores become agitated and intimidated when another member of the same sex garners more attention than themself and they become hostile and lash out. Will do almost anything to get the attention they seek including posing naked or half naked for pictures and posting them everywhere for all to see...and become increasingly sick to.
Flashgirl is such an attention whore. With what can only be described as delirious self misperception of her "beauty" and likeability, she is like an annoying little monkey hanging from everyone's nuts at once.

A person who's willing to do something extremely drastic just for all eyes to be on them.

There are sorta 2 versions of attention whores (they are usually girls). These kind of people are also known as drama queens. Ironically, it means that they like to cause a commotion and act as the victim.

Internet attention whore is a girl who joins forums, blogs, etc. They like to flirt with guys and act stupid and are usually very, very spammy. They post pictures of themselves (see cam whore) and say how ugly they feel (to generate compliments). If you feel ugly, why did you put yourself up? COMMON SENSE!! Alot of them are pretty good at Photoshop and all those editing stuff (which is pretty much their only talent). There are also those attention whores who know a couple of famous people, and post a lot of pictures of them with the famous person. A funny thing about these people: ever notice how most of their friends are guys, and girl friends are usually just like them?

Real life attention whores are people who have a strong craving for attention. When the light isn't focused on them, they desperately look for a way to make people notice them. RL attention whores constantly change the way they look. A good example is hair. They get these really weird looking hairstyles, with neon colors and other stuff. They usually have bad attitudes, but can be nice sometimes. Real life attention whores are also sometimes online attention whores.
Online attention whore on her blog: hey loozers!! posted up some pics for all my fans (tehe). SHOUTOUTS 2 MY BITCHES NIKKI AND JAC!!! <3 Ash-bash
