I don't care about some porn star (and let's call her what she is) and her basketball husband.
And people are so gullible thinking this was real. A female co-worker of mine went home from work early the other day because she was so stressed out by the news. And another one is going around swearing that he thinks the whole thing was fake. OF COURSE IT WAS FAKE!
This whole reality TV shit is getting really disturbing. So transparent and fake in front of our own eyes, and we love to think that it's real. It's sick.
Are you fucking kidding, OP? Someone went home over this? What the hell kind of retard does that? I agree, too - the Kardassian family needs to go away.
OP, the thing that's disturbing is the fact that no-talent slobs can become famous and idolized--and the media pursues them. Unfortunately, these fame whore Kardashians are at the forefront of this madness.
It's cringe-wothy, creepy and pretty disgusting when I hear this family in interviews talking about their "fans." The dumbing down of America--and maybe the world--is in full force.
And it's difficult to get away from them. I'm a news junkie, but these idiots pop up everywhere, even when you're watching a fairly decent news program. They're everywhere. You can't escape them.
Believe me, it will eventually end. It always does. These people are trash. Society is full of trash and the public has a short attention span. Society will eventually move onto the next train wreck.
[quote]A female co-worker of mine went home from work early the other day because she was so stressed out by the news.
So true on all levels everyone. Reality TV has signaled the death knell of quality TV as we know it. Gone are the days of engaging primetime dramas and TV movies-of-the-week. In their place, we have "reality" shows starring Joe and Jane Nobody who suddenly acquire fame and adulation for doing nothing. It's hard to believe there was a time when a person had to actually sing, act, play a sport or be a politician to be considered a celebrity. Now, anyone with ten kids or a famous hotel mogul dad can be famous. I long for the days of a Jersey Shore, Paris Hilton, Jon and Kate, Octomom, Real Housewives-free world.
Yet OP starts another post about them.
Yes, OP, but I also enjoy the fact the Kardashians are sort of a modern culling of the herd. A shiny key ring to shake in from of the masses. Anyone who follows them, or equally, hates them with a passion, deserves to waste their hours and entertainment dollar.
"and the media pursues them."
The media pursues them because they are what people want to read about. People Magazine, In-Touch and all the other rags are bought by people who want to read this crap.
The media does not force anyone to watch "The Kardashians."
Quit blaming the media for your average, run of the mill stupidity and vapidity of the American public.
I'm tired of the whole family.
I'm tired of listening to news about them.
And can someone please explain to me how anyone can find Kim Kardashian good-looking?
R8, absolute bullshit. You want an example of the media being at fault for this kind of horseshit? P A L I N.
The media kept pushing and pushing and pushing that bimbo as a "serious" threat to Obama. The public never bought it.
R9, Kim Kardashian is not just good-looking, she is BEAUTIFUL, as annoying as hearing about her every five minutes is. Dark hair, gorgeous bronze complexion, curvaceous body...she makes Paris Hilton look like a boy.
Hopefully they will pass out of favor soon. Much like Paris Hilton.
R8. I work with media. And I don't like blaming the media for all of our ills. However, the media is often just as lazy and stupid as the general public.
Years ago, there used to be entertainment reporters, political reporters, education reporters, etc., etc.
Now so much of the time, these specialty reporters have gone the way of the dinasaur. Now everyone is a general assignment reporter. Meaning, they supposedly have to cover everything--but they're specialized in pretty much nothing. And so, they go for the easy story.
They dumb their reporting because even they don't know what they're talking about--and they are often responsible for mixing hard news and tabloid bullshit. Sure, they give the people what they want and what they think will score easy high ratings. But so often they never try and elevate the conversation so that the public is informed, enlightened, etc.
The media chases people like the Kardashians because so much of the time, they are nothing more than fangurls themselves.
It's not just the moronic Kardashians...
It's Andy Cohen of Bravo TV. He's the other culprit for poisoning the airwaves with those nauseating "Housewives of You-Name-The-City."
Granted, you don't have to watch those shows, but it's hard to escape them--and the affect they have on the public. It's just more dumbing down of the public resulting in idolizing no-talent nobodies who do nothing but aspire to superficial bullshit.
I hope the woman who went home on stress leave over the dissolution of a TV marriage between two people she will likely never meet and, if she did, wouldn't spit on her if she were on fire, was sacked. Unless, of course, you work in some sheltered workshop, in which case you have my sympathies.
What are cardashions?
I'm not interested in them to begin with, OP.
What is interesting is for Anyone Kardashian to get more coverage in corporate media than Occupy Wall Street -- the Occupy -- movement.
I think this whole thing does signify the beginning of the end of these types of reality shows. This was just a blatant money grab by nothing more than a porn star & her whore of a mother and people I hear talk about it are pissed. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
R5, if you think all television is shit, that's your own problem. We are living in a golden age of television. Of course there is miles of terrible TV -- 99% of any art form is awful. But you really don't have to watch the Kardashian/Housewife bullshit.
Currently airing TV shows: Sons of Anarchy, Enlightened, The Good Wife, American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, Homeland, Boardwalk Empire, Supernatural, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Parks and Recreation, Community, South Park, Bored to Death, Dexter.
If you're watching bad TV, find a better show or stop watching so much TV.
But that's precisely the problem, R3. It's not the Kartrashians themselves, it's the fact that the next fame whores are ALWAYS waiting in the wings, and when the Kartrashians fade we'll just have to deal with having the new losers shoved down our throats for the next year or two. People keep pointing out that Paris Hilton eventually went away - yeah, but only to be replaced by an entire family of these leeches!
Then again, hopefully there's some truth to what R18 posted. Between this and the Real Housewives suicide earlier this year, maybe the trash reality genre has jumped the shark - although I'm sure it will still manage to hang on a like a cockroach for who the hell knows how long.
I think the mood of the country is changing, and the networks are missing the big picture as usual.
While there will always be a fan base for stars and their trials and tribulations, there is a sense that these particular types, ones that have no discernable talent, are stone deaf to the world around them. Opulence and throwing money away on vagina/basketball retard displays while many are in very bad shape money-wise.
This is what will be the end of this shit-fest.
R19, and Revenge, Prime Suspect, Body of Proof, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit,
Criminal Minds, and I am sure there are others.
Why didn't The Today Show this morning disclose that E! is owned by NBCUniversal before they interviewed Kris Jenner? That hideous Ann Curry used the phrase, "as part of full disclosure" ... when she asked Kris how much money Kim earned from the wedding. Full disclosure, indeed.
How can I get on one of them there "Housewives" shows?
Kim Kardashian is not beautiful. The people who find her beautiful are trash themselves. She is fat, fugly, and overprocessed. She is ugly inside and out.
No acting experience.
No singing capabilities.
So, why are the Kardashians getting so much attention?
Kim Kardashian's hips are getting wider by the minute.
wider and wider - her hips are already gargantuan
She is very short, so she has the propensity to look quite DUMPY in middle age.
R26, because many people apparently find their day to day life and family life as shown in their myriad of reality shows fascinating and interesting.
I don't watch that much tv. So when I started hearing about the Kardashians about a year ago I asked my sister who the heck this is. She tells me she famous for fucking some rapper and releasing a video. I said that's it? THAT's what it takes to be a celebrity these days?
So now EVERYONE is talking about this bitch getting divorced. I don't understand WHY? WHY is she getting this kind of attention?
This is finally the beginning of the end for them. About time.
On the Kardashian reality shows (there are 3 or 4 different shows) the family interaction is shown -
and many people find the family interaction of such a large, wealthy family to be interesting.
Lots of arguments, disharmony, flare-ups, disappointments, tears, happiness -
people like watching how family members interact and face life.
R29, the Kardashian family has very popular shows on the E! network. They have:
Keeping Up with the Kardashians
Kourtney and Kim Take New York
Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami
Khloe and Lamar
Millions of people watch the four shows above on the E! network and really enjoy the family interaction on the shows.
"Millions of people watch the four shows"
Millions of people also eat at McDonald's and beat their kids.
That doesn't make it good.
Imagine all the good things that could be done if all of you "reality" show addicts here did something, ANYthing with your sad pathetic lives.
Oh, wait. You can't, because you have neither imaginations nor lives.
@32 nice try, hows the job going. I know for a fact they hire folks to troll and give the good mouth on those sluts.
People.com had a poll about whether the marriage was a sham (and I know, I'm a loser for even going to that site) and 85% think it was a sham. I am hoping this is the turning point for people to walk away from that messed up family. Thank you Kim and Kris. And Kris J.
[quote]A female co-worker of mine went home from work early the other day because she was so stressed out by the news.
I'm sorry, but I can't believe anyone fell for that bullshit.
They stir up strong emotions in large enough groups of people. They make just as much money for the media being hated as they do being loved. They'll go away when those large enough groups of people become indifferent. As long as you click to read about them, they'll hang around. Currently, you'll see across the internet any story about them generates vast amounts of comments, usually more than other stories on the site...so looks like they'll be around for a while longer.
It is high time that the "quiet majority" voices our opinion about the Kardashian family and the general overload thereof. Most of us do not want to catch the evening news and one of the top stories is about these not worthy people. Who really cares about the Kardsashians, Lindsey Lewhan,Brattney Speers, etc etc.
Who died and left these people as topics of any thought, discussion or anything of importance? Whats wrong with anybody who does give a shit? We are going down fast as a society. For those of you who do follow these low class whores, why don't you pay more attention to your families, or why don't you donate your time to some needy cause?
Anybody else sick of this, call your local media and let them know to pull the plug on this B.S.
These Kuntdashians all need to go away immediately. Why do I have to be assaulted everyday by the images of these greedy, stupid fame/money/attention whores from every possible media outlet.
And they can take that other piece of worthless shit Lohan with her--this country is disgusting in its fascination with inanity
stop talking about them. Easy as pie.
Quite pathetic how Australian media is currently in a frenzy over that gypsy family.
If you watch "The A List", you're "Kardashians" viewer material.
What's annoying is that you don't have to watch their show to hear about them constantly. They're EVERYWHERE.
From morning shows, to news websites, to magazines, no matter how hard you try to avoid them, there they are.
Either there really is a demand to know about these people or the media thinks the world is truly fascinated.
Please take Ryan Spermcrest with them.
I agree about this being a turning point. Ratings are down across the board on reality based programming. I think that the formula be it challenges like Top Chef or Amazing Race or fame whore based like House Wives and the Kardashian K-Hole sagas are just too played out. Bravo is just exhausted at this point.
I don't even know who they are, but their names pop up FAR too often
R19, when I want your opinion I'll GIVE IT TO YOU. Until then, shut the fuck up. That is all.
R25, you obviously don't know the meaning of the word "fat". Kim Kardashian is anything but. She is voluptuous and curvy, not a pencil-thin waif. Learn the difference.
It's hard to hate Kim Karfuckian just because she's just too stupid to realize she's a worldwide joke. But what's disturbing is that millions of girls now believe that getting cum on your face or letting some guy piss on you, filming it and releasing it as a viral video is a gateway to being famous.
I cannot STAND those gum-chomping cunt sisters of hers, though. And the mother is an absolute horror who makes Lohan's mother look like Julie Andrews in comparison.
Wow, so her tacky handbag line is nothing but a rip off of other more expensive designer bags like Balenciaga, Chloe, and Botkier.
And even more ironic, Kim shows up carrying the REAL Balenciaga to her own appearance for her line of bags!
Her fans are complete morons if they don't realize they're being had and she's a piece of shit for knocking off other people's bags instead of 'designing' some originals.
R50. I saw a clip of the Aussie/Kim and Khloe interview. They both said they had worked very hard on their handbag collection--and that they came there to honor their appearance commitments and didn't want to disappoint their fans.
Yep, they have "fans" the world over. According to momma Kris Jenner, their bullshit reality show airs in 150 countries. I thought it was just the dumbing down of America. But no, they're taking the whole world with them into the cesspool.
R47 . . . what the fuck? What part of "there are good shows on television" pissed you off so much?
R52, it's the sarcastic tone in your original post that was not necessary.
R53, not a single line in that post was sarcastic. But this one is: Don't worry, next time I will patiently wait for you to give me my opinion before I express it. But it must be so tough to be so busy, having to give everyone their opinions ahead of time.
It's like the WWE of celebrity gossip.
R54, saying "...that's your own problem" was a little biting. If you'd phrased it, "If you don't think there's anything quality on TV, then here's how our opinions differ..." or something to that effect, it may have come across as less caustic.
I think it's utter horse shit that Kim, Klhoe and the rest of the Kardasian family are famous I can see bruce but... the rest of those no talent bullshit family members can get the fuck off the tv .. already .. you aren't famous .. ya dumb fucking cunts!
Yeah her no ball playing idiot of a husband .. and that Albanian piece of shit family can get the fuck off the tv now!
Armenian, not Albanian.
E! just gave those horrible people $40 million for 3 more seasons of Keeping up with the Kartrashians.
Help me out people how can anyone with a tiny bit of intelligence can watch these stupid, fake and boring people? I watched 3 minutes of this shit and that was enough.
me too r61.
It is so scripted, it's pathetic. They must laugh their asses all the way to the bank.
I have no idea why that family of complete whores are famous in the first place. They have no talent and do nothing, and I can't stand them. Yet, I know who all of them are because you really can't avoid the hype.
I wouldn't know a Kardashian if I fell over one of them. Have never seen even one second of them on TV. I don't watch garbage TV.
What I am tired of is people like you OP. As omnipresent as you think they are I am unaware of them until some asshole like you or some of the celebrities that love to bash them bring them up. Thanks for helping to keep them in the public consciousness.
[quote] A female co-worker of mine went home from work early the other day because she was so stressed out by the news.
This never happened.
Chris & Bruce are co-owner-executives of the show. How crazy that cameras are there while both of them are sneaking & spying around on each other. If I was to cheat for sure no cameras would be present. Oh the plot is made for TV- come on Ryan it's as obvious as Kims marriage this is pure fraud.
Want my time back not my money:(
We all can make conscious decisions.
OP decided by acknowledging the Kardashians' presence and posting about his disgust for them to make them (a negative) part of his life and drawing further attention to them.
In some cases ignorance is bliss.
'Who are these Kardashians? Are they in any way important or famous for something?'
'Kardashians? Never heard of them'
Dont like them? Stop making them famous. But people wanted to see her sex tape, YOU DID IT! The public did it! No one else to blame. So Kim shrugs and says, OKAY, you want it, Here Iam!
Love Bruce's eyebrows and matching earrings
Did anyone see Brucey bruce get really annoyed and crabby when Andy asked him about his Plastic Surgery on WWHL? He refused to answer.
I have always been amused that the wife and children of OJ's attorney have suddenly become so famous as "stars",fashion designers???, etc. etc. This is definitely the doing of their mother, who is a fame whore and will do whatever it takes to promote her nothing children. How sad that the media sells their crap to the people, and even sadder that people buy into this. We look pathetic.
The husband is hot, hot, hot
The mother is a lesbian.
Rather than blaming celebrities, blame American people. They wouldn't be famous if it wasn't for demand. Americans are fascinated with celebrity life, gossip, and news. We're to blame, not the Kardashians.
Kim is suck trash coming out speaking on how TJ is so good for the kids.
Guess thats why he dumped her skanky ass and married another girl.
So the jackson, brandy's brother what other black family has she gone through.
I really dont know whats going on, and i'm also sick to hear people are watching this Kardashians show so much so that they are willing to pay them a thick 40 Mill. and I ask for what? hearing all their nasty and non important all day gossiping , fake marriages, etc? I guess we got what we deserve as a society, one thing is certain you wont caught me dead watching that stupid show, Thx.
I am equally disgusted with hearing about Kim, Khole and the nasty mother Kardashian as well. In my opinion, the only reason they are remotely famous is because of the man of the family. That's right, Mr. Kardashian, was an attorney for O.J.Simpson, which many people don't care about either, because all Simpson is, and was, nothing but a criminal anyways.
I'm hoping just like the comment said, that eventually they will disappear from the limelight!!!!!
Thank you R79 for pointing that out. People seem to have forgotten or make no connection to the fact that it was OJ's blood money that kept the Kardashian klan in gin in stockings before the daughters and mother made a name for themselves in the entertainment business. I believe the father is dead now just like Johnny Cocrin, Simpson's other high profile attorney. To my memory the father did very little other than warm the bench and look menacing before the tv audience in the trial of the century. I don't recall that he ever questioned a witness or even argued a point before Judge Ito. Must have been easy money.
We're not tired of it, OP!
Will E air a divorce special? Now that, I would watch.
OK, I will admit that all things Kardasian are one of my guilty pleasures. They fascinate me and I have no idea why. Sorry but true.
The whole Kardashian brand is so tired and old. The E! channel needs to get rid of them.
I think Khloe is a great choice for co-host of X Factor. I look forward to watching her mix it up with Simon and maybe even Britney on the live shows.
I'm very irritated that a year after the wedding/divorce scanadal, people are STILL watching all the WhoreTrashian shows and supporting them! Some of us were getting hopeful that last year around this time would mark the end of their entertainment empire, but it's as if nothing happened at all! What gives?
Khloe turned out to be the only interesting one. I think she's distancing herself from the sinking ship of a reality show. It basically cost her husband his career.
There was a story a few weeks ago about Mama Whore wanting to manage Honey Boo Boo. Maybe it's her insurance in case the K brand is getting old and tired.
Khloe is just as annoying and untalented as the others. Plus she's fucking ugly. She's another reason for me to boycott X-Factor, in addition to Satan Cowell and Shitney Schmears.
I must be one of the only Gays who have never seen any of the Kardashian TV show. They do absolutely nothing for me. When I have seen any pictures in magazines, they look like so many other LA and Long Island skanks.
I've also been fortunate to avoid Honey Booboo and all of the Real Housewives. Skanks. skanks. shanks.
[quote] A female co-worker of mine went home from work early the other day because she was so stressed out by the news
I haven't seen them either R90. I was in the kitchen once, cooking, and I heard them come on in the living room and about killed myself racing to the remote to change the channel.
The whole reality tv genre for the Kardashians need to end so they can live quietly and privately.
Kardashians need to fuck off they have no talent why does anyone watch them? They are all annoying and not that hot. The oldest one is fat and ugly. The youngest one sounds like a dumbass when she talks. If you think Kim is hot just watch her porn video people. Stop watching this shit.
I hate them with an intensity I cannot articulate. Who watches this shit? Seriously?
Reality tv is here to stay!
You better redneckonise!
ARE AMERICANS THAT STUPID TO CARE ABOUT KIM KARDARSHIANS WHAT HAS SHE DONE TO MAKE HER FAMOUS WHY DO AMERICAN YOUNG PEOPLE IDOLIZE THIS TYPE OF A PERSON?
is that how smart americanos act?
Agree, OP. I can't believe our culture, which gives any attention to these parasites. I'd love to see the whole family dropped into the Sudan with a bottle of water each. That's my idea of a Kardashian reality show--with no intervention.
sometimes I never understand Hollywood, if only people would explore their deepest feelings and show their love and kiss the flowers and feel the breeze blowing through the trees
I have a special fondness for Khrate-and-Barrel Kardashian.
R97 sadly it's more than America. The WhoreTrashians have substantial followings around the world now, especially in Canada, UK and Australia.
I really thought the combo of that debit card SCAM and the wedding SCAM would turn off fans, but the public is so damn stupid I guess most either didn't care or got over it quickly.
Hopefully they'll do something else so distasteful that they'll lose every fan.
