It is a question that has long
Last post, Ann Bennett wrote that many today mistake notoriety as fame.
When you think Kardashians,
you think selfies, Twitter, curvaceous bottoms, cosmetic surgery, clothes, spats or money.
Inane nonsense. But it’s the stuff they’ve made millions from.
Kim markets her image.
Robert Kardashian, her father, was a LA lawyer in the OJ Simpson case.
She attended pre-school with Paris Hilton.
Her 14th birthday party was held at Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch.
With no singing talent, no acting skills, and only her body and her predatory strategy, Kim has gone far.
Nick Lachey claims Kim Kardashian alerted paparazzi to their movie date in 2006 in bid to get famous.
Kim Kardashian's rise to fame began in 2007 with a "leaked" sex tape starring Kim and rapper Ray J.
In a Paris Hilton-esque turn of events, her sex tape with Ray J was leaked in February 2007,
and her reality show premiered eight months later.
In fact, one of the first episodes chronicles her dealing with the leak. Coincidence?
Kardashian is now married, and a mother, and has continued to be sexually outrageous.
Her husband, rapper Kanye West posts highly sexual photos of her on Instagram.
He also raps about her sex tape, bragging about their lifestyle:
"Eat breakfast at Gucci. My girl a superstar all from a home movie."
At least, Miley and Justin release music albums.
What do Kim and her sisters do but release revealing photos of themselves on Instagram?
Is the Kardashian fame the Halloween Trick that has lasted years?
Or are they a reflection of our warped system of values?
