Kim Kardashian and her fellow 'Gremlins'

I have spent the last 10 minutes trying to think what the Kardashians remind me of; it’s not the most useful use of 15 minutes, I know.


It took Abraham Lincoln less than 2 minutes to deliver the Gettysburg Address, a speech that managed to invoked the principles of human equality espoused by the Declaration of Independence, not to mention redefining the Civil War as a struggle not merely for the Union, but as "a new birth of freedom” that would bring equality to all of its citizens.

It's soberign to think It’s taken me five times as long to make me realize the Kardashians look like film stars; and I’m talking the stars of Stephen Spielberg’s epic Gremlins – after the application of water; and a bit of make-up.

I am hoping my mid afternoon brain fog will pass but it’s slowing no sign of doing so any time soon. In half hearted desperation, I sought to research Kim Kardashian to discover she’s a celebutante, whatever this is when it’s at home, socialite, TV personality, actress and model famous for launching fragrances and a sex tape. In other words she’s a sort of brunette version of Paris Hilton and another oxygen thief par excellence.

At least Kim’s capable of turning heads, which is more that you can say for sisters Kourtney and Khloe (were these girls’ parents founders of the KKK or something?). Kourtney and Khloe are also stars, although this word is capable of being stretched a long way – of the reality TV show Keeping up with the Kardashians.

I'm probably showing my age here but I find myself preferring the mother. I'm not sure what she's called. Mavis or Doris maybe?
For those people who don’t want to keep up with them (and who can blame you) the show just involves lots of bitchiness over trivia.

The rather sobering thing is this trio have just made the top 10 of highly paid reality TV stars. Kim, has made $6 million in endorsements and her sisters have made a few million each, coming in at 7th and 8th places in a poll by the Daily Beast
Some nonentities from Jersey Shores have also raked in millions by being their dumb selves on camera. Kendra Wilkinson, an erstwhile Playboy bunny, who is now a mousy housewife, with theobligatory sex tape to her name, coined in $2 million. Depressing if you think about it too hard.

  1. Hahaha ~ love your brain fog. $6 million in endorsements, I weep for society, I truly do.

    I saw these attention seeking gals at Salt Lake City airport once, didn't have a clue as to who they were. They had one measly little paparazzi photographer taking their pictures as they got their luggage.

    I will now employ a photographer to follow me around as I wear large sunglasses and just you all wait for the sex tape, it is going to be a doozy!!

  3. I agree. It's as sobering and annoying as the Sponge Bob phenomenon. I honestly did not know who was in this photo until you said so. xo

  4. The Gremlins reference made me laugh out loud.
    "Lots of bitchiness over trivia" amused me as well.

    I have no idea why there is so much hoopla about these gals. Makes no sense to me.

  5. You're right to prefer the mom. She's a brilliant manager. How else to explain them?

  6. I will admit (reluctantly and behind some degree of Internet anonymity - since you don't know me in person) that I have watched this train wreck on occasion. Sometimes it's so bad, it's actually kind of entertaining. (And the mom's name is Kris - yes, this family is brought to you by the letter K!)

  7. well that makes me cooler than you Robyn because I keep up with them (sort of)- thanks Daisy, I find a lot of reality TV is bitchiness over trivia. for sure Deborah and a good marketing guru; she's Kris - that's funny ValleyWriter. You haven't given your real name so you are safe from associaiton with the Kardashians.

  8. I don't have a TV. But I know about the Kardashians. How? From my Armenian friends. Can anyone happily avoid that family?

  9. I wish I could get paid to say dumb things on TV. I say them all the time for free. No one would ever pay to watch me in a sex tape though, that I'm sure of.
