WHY ARE THE KARDASHIANS SO FAMOUS?


It is a question that has long 
puzzled me.


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?


What do you think?

  1. I don't understand the Kardashian phenomenon. It's sad. It irritates me that Willy Dunne Wooters--and every other man I know--thinks Kim Kardashian is gorgeous. She has a big nose and a big butt. If it were me, people would make fun of my nose and call me fat ass. The Kardashians wear such strange clothing that isn't really clothing because it doesn't cover them. They are not fashion icons. I've never watched their TV show. If I mention them online, it's to say that they became famous because of O.J. Simpson and later, a sex tape. They aren't famous for their intelligence, nor are they famous for their good taste, philanthropy, or kindness. It makes me sad.

    Love,

    1. I must add that Kim's selfie with Hillary Clinton was taken in spite of a request not to take selfies at the gathering. Kim barreled her way in to get her selfie. When it was first tweeted, Hillary was misspelled, and the tweet had other errors. Someone cleaned up the mistakes, and it was retweeted.

    2. It makes me sad as well. (Shakes His Head) If you can get the spotlight and then hog it with tease and sex and outrageousness -- fame is yours.

      I don't doubt that Kim ignored Hillary's request -- ignoring good taste is how she got where she is.

  2. A Harbinger of these Decadent American Times. Like A bad Halloween Costume, or an April Fools Joke that has gone on for much too long.

    I've never seen any entertainment value in anything Kardashian. Unfortunately, IMO, the public general conventions, have been in decay for decades; while this is a result of such decadence at its worst. The analogy I find fitting, is the refurbishment of the Corroding, cancer of rust under the Statue of Liberty's primer and paint. Like the Statue, a Model for America's freedom. Her rust is deep, as deep as that of tainted American audiences, who are quickly losing touch with Quality of Entertainment. IMHO.

    I don't see anything of value to the viewer/listener/reader; over Bruce Jenner's transformation into Caitlyn Jenner, neither. Did he/she hang out too long with those K girls, after marrying their mother? I believe so, but then I am jaded? to the L.A. Tinsel Town scene.

    Was it a ploy for money? A bad decision since the lights on Bruce were beginning to fade, one way to catapult his/her vanities onto a public charade of Harlatans?

    1. To me they are not even pretty. Sigh.

      I don't have the answers, my friend, only more questions. :-(

    2. LOL, rather chuckling to myself, as I can see you sigh a heavy breath. Touche, Mon Ami, Touche. I have no answers to bring either my friend. Bless you in all your journey's and endeavors.

      I am in extreme awe of how your Blog site has grown. The Quality of your writing has always been very special, while speaking to the soul of the listener/readers. "Writing In The Crosshairs;" foundation has always been as strong as they come. Would that be due to living in Hurricane Country? You my Sir, are an "Extraordinary Gentleman."
      Stuck inside of Mojave with the Bayou Blues again....!~~

    3. I'll have to conjure the earlier post on why I call my blog WRITING IN THE CROSSHAIRS -- basically it refers to the need to focus our writing as clear as a rifle's crosshairs. :-)

      Sam McCord is my Extraordinary Gentleman (like Alan Quartermain) Me, I just a pilgrim! May your pain ease a bit each day.

    4. I thank You for your kind words. I take refuge in Your work(s)......

      I'm glad you defined the title of these great blogs, a worthy title indeed.

      For a moment I thought perhaps, you were writing as if you were in someone's crosshairs. Kinda' how I used to write, as if my hair was on fire. Technical Writing has in time, kind of put my Creative Writing, to bed, or a long nap.....(chuckling). Besides, I'd rather read YOURS.....Kudos Mon Ami.

      Pain of the Spine, with more metal than a Hardware Store, is slowing me down considerably, as much mentally as physically.

      May Blessings abound Your World, My Dear Friend.

  3. Not sure why. I'll refrain from the Dumbing Down of America but I have no other answers.

    1. It does seem as if our country is slipping in it collective cognitive awareness all right. The symptoms are all around us, right? Thanks for visiting. And may your sales skyrocket. :-)

  4. I don't understand it, and I refuse to buy into it. I know the name (who could I not) but am not sure I would recognise her if we were sharing a lift. Which suits me just fine.

    1. I shake my head at the whole phenomenon. I don't travel in the necessary elite circles to share a lift with Kim or her sisters -- thankfully. :-)

  5. It breaks my heart to see some of the people who find fame these days. Stupidity seems to be a popular thing to celebrate though and I wonder what it says for the future when you have so many young people idolizing randoms like Kim, who seems to have no real talent.
    I guess we live in a strange world, full of strange people, but I often wish we didn't.

    1. Fame and the millions that can be harvested from it. I am puzzled. Tacky though they are, Miley and Justin at PRODUCE albums. The Kardashians produce nothing but instagrams and books of their instsgrams.

      It does sometimes seem as if we have found ourselves living in a surreal film produced by Mel Brooks, doesn't it? Thanks for visiting and chatting awhile. I've missed you,

  6. Good question. No idea why all this works the way it does, though. :-/

    1. I have figment of ideas about it but I fear the patch-work quilt of them makes no sensible theory. :-(

  7. My sex instructional had mixed reviews: http://www.amazon.com/Americas-Galactic-Foreign-Legion-Randal-ebook/dp/B00B0T0FIW/ref=pd_sim_351_5?ie=UTF8&dpID=51BKsX9VfCL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_UX300_PJku-sticker-v3%2CTopRight%2C0%2C-44_AC_UL160_SR105%2C160_&refRID=0PB97XVP66JHEN12SAY6

    3. So that sex instructional was just a riff on Kim's sex tape, huh? :-) LOL

  8. Wow, Kardashians do sum it up.

    No specific talents than being able to put on airs and dress well. However, I can see a likability factor of Kim Kardashian. I imagine if you get between her and a dollar,she wouldn't be that sweet. There are some advantages of coming from the great unwashed.

    1. I certainly wouldn't want to become between her and a dollar! Kanye West may find that out one day. Ouch! :-)
