So in the news today, fresh off the presses is the break-up of the marriage of one of the world’s favorite media darlings Kim Kardashian and NBA star Kris Humphries. This after 72 days of wedded bliss. The wedding was a reported $10 million so I believe that comes down to a $127,000 a day, amazing at a time of such economic strife for the rest of us peons. I wonder if the plan for another Reality Show just didn’t pan out?!
I wonder if you were “lucky” enough to be invited to all the parties, if you get your gifts back? If the whole sorry saga has nothing to do with money but love I wonder if Kim will return the engagement ring, reportedly worth $2 million? Or was marriage for 72 days to “The KIM” worth $2 mil? Hmmm….
Has anybody but me wondered what she and her sisters are actually famous for? I know they are a bunch of beautiful girls, but the last I looked, they just got lucky and had a famous father and a really pushy mother. Their father was a very rich, successfully high-profile lawyer working for OJ Simpson and I believe their mother may have done some modeling, as in Play Boy in her youth. Kris Jenner’s claim to fame seems to be she was best friends with Nicole Brown Simpson, which is the topic of her new tell-all book, before Nicole was murdered. Do these people ever “do” anything but controversy or sensationalism?
Oh, I forgot . . . Kim did a sex tape, a Play Boy spread like Mommy dearest, the girls have a store of overpriced “stuff” they hawk to people who aspire to be like them, one of the sisters, Khloe has her own reality show, the family has the original reality show, just the norm . . . and the girls have to work hard to stay in shape for all their appearances! Come on, that’s hard work!
Is anything good coming from all these “Reality TV Shows”? Where do you think people like Snooky and The Situation are going to be in 10 years? I hope they are smart enough to be banking their money so we are not reading the horror of their ruined, bankrupt lives in a few years . . .
What do you think?
