Kall me krazy, but I love the Kardashians.
This is Kardashian Week if there ever was one. The fab family just signed a $40-million deal with E! for three more years of their reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians—making it the biggest deal in reality-TV history.
Last Thursday Kim appeared on a live episode of 30 Rock. Soon after she declared her interest in doing comedy and having her own show.
Kim also expressed interest in politics and talked about running for mayor of Glendale, CA. She met with several local politicians to discuss her candidacy. Her mother Kris says she thinks Kim would be a great mayor. I think it would be a good way for her to use her influence in a more humanitarian way.
This past weekend Kim and her mother attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington. Barack Obama and host Jimmy Kimmel both referred to Kim and the Kardashians in their speeches multiple times. That makes them pretty darn famous, now, doesn’t it? Possibly even more than Brad and Angelina.
Kim’s sister Khloe and her sweetie pie of a husband Lamar Odom just announced they have canceled their spin-off show so Lamar can focus on his basketball career. It looks like Khloe and her sister Kourtney might be in talks to do their own spin-off like the one they did in Miami, though nothing has been finalized.
In the meantime Lamar and Kanye West, Kim’s new squeeze, were recently fitted for gold teeth. This is slightly ridiculous, but perhaps my understanding of fashion is out of date. Plus I’m not a dentist. The Kardashian Klan seem to have a tremendous sense of style so they probably know more about gold teeth. After all, a lot of their businesses revolve around clothing.
As far as I can tell the girls have a slightly gaudy, well-to-do SoCal Armenian thing going. I don’t really have a problem with that; it’s the Juicy Couture look I detest. Kris Jenner could dress a little more age-appropriately, but I’ll let it slide. All in all the ladies look healthy. Robert and Bruce would lose the earrings and the ghetto fabulous stuff if I had my say, but then they hang out with a lot of ballers so maybe they fit in a little better with them. The best dressed of all the Kardashian men is definitely Scott Disick. He’s from the East Coast so his sense of style is more preppie, which I happen to prefer.
Scott recently backed out of hosting the Hamptons Golf Classic because his daughter with Kourtney K is due around the same time. He also just opened a new restaurant in New York called RYU. The food is Asian/Israeli—ever on the cutting edge! I love Disick’s sense of humor. He is particularly funny when he gets all cocky and drunk. I miss his wild drinking days when he would go to Vegas and embarrass the whole klan. He seems like a sensitive and humble person, though his humility is not always obvious. Only Disick can get away with using a cane.
One thing that confuses me is the girls’ choice in men. I would think they would go for guys with origins more similar to their own, but I guess now that they are so famous they need to be with people who understand the nature of the beast and who are happy in the spotlight.
I am so glad that whole Kris Humphries nonsense is over. He was so immature and annoying. I actually stopped watching the show because of him. My skin crawls when I catch a rerun and have to listen to him acting like an awkward teenager. All the haters who said she married him for publicity are wrong. She was just caught up in a bad relationship and was consumed like most girls by her wedding fantasy. Nobody would have married that goober-faced tool for money. Only an inexperienced young woman could make such an idiotic decision.
Now that Kim is with Kanye West, I am going to have to regroup. I used to find him really annoying but I can see by the photographs that he’s really into her. I think she likes him because he’s famous and into fashion and all that, but Kim is a little too into herself right now to really know how to love anyone. I give her another five years or so to fully mature. Kim is the middle child and they are always the most screwed-up.
It couldn’t have been easy for the girls to lose their dad so young. I wonder if that’s why they all have OCD and love to keep everything tidy and under control.
Kris Jenner is the real mystery. Is she a stage mom who never realized her own ambitions, or is she only trying to secure her family’s financial future? She has to be a decent lady or Bruce Jenner wouldn’t be with her. He seems like a solid person. She is clearly very ambitious and very capable.
People love to hate the Kardashians, but I don’t see why anyone has a problem with them. The Kardashians stick together and look out for each other. They work hard. They’re honest about their values. They have never claimed to be more than they are.
They are a tight family and they don’t hurt anyone. They have been involved in so many different businesses and harmless scandals, it’s hard to keep track of the main reason they’re famous. Personally, I’d like to see them all at Coachella next year toking on doobies and singing in an ethno-Armenian gypsy band called Kim and the Kardashians.
