it’s all just for show.
i don’t really keep up with the kardashians, but a friend was just sharing with me that kim kardashian, the woman who rode her sex partner to fame in a raunchy tape, the woman who just had a $10 million wedding (for which she was paid handsomely), has now filed for divorce 72 days after said marriage.
but besides her self-important penchant for spelling everything with a k (or would that be mama kris’s penchant, naming all her kids with k’s — you can bet that wasn’t her hubby, bruce jenner’s idea), kim has konsistently been in the spotlight…famous for…being in the spotlight. and short celebrity marriages aren’t new (looking at you, dennis rodman and carmen electra.) i wonder, though ,whether public opinion, which seemed to groove on her public sexcapades, will still clamor over her now that she’s made a total mockery over marriage. for i don’t believe rodman and electra were actually paid for their wedding photos, access to wedding info, etc.
see, not only did kim get fabulous gifts, three different vera wang dresses, and oodles of fabulousness all gratis, but with the ads shown during her wedding special, she earned close to $18 million for all her marital troubles.
lord only knows what she’ll make from her pre-nup.
- Offer (someone, typically a woman) for sexual activity in exchange for payment
- – although she was paid $15 to join a man at his table, she never prostituted herself
- Put (oneself or one’s talents) to an unworthy or corrupt use or purpose for the sake of personal or financial gain
- – his willingness to prostitute himself to the worst instincts of the electorate
i’m waiting for her to get pregnant and then start selling her sonograms.
reality television has shown us that people will do pretty much anything for money and fame. people are willing to sell their families and friends down the proverbial river, risk life and limb, and pretty much lower themselves for all the world to see. and ironically, nothing on these shows is truly real.
between her surgically-enhanced assets and her apparently fake wedding, i wonder whether kim kardashian knows what is actually real. besides money, of course.
