Sardines in a can and the Kardashians

Apparently to “Keep up with the Kardashians” I need to learn to squeeze myself into an extremely tight space and wait for two hours.

Wednesday night, the Kardashian ladies hosted an opening for “Famous Cupcakes,” an organic and kosher cupcake shop in Beverly Hills. The ladies made a grand entrance on a carriage drawn by white horses about two hours after the event was scheduled to start. All the while, about every imaginable media outlet waited patiently with more than enough space on the sidewalk of Beverly Drive – NOT. On most nights I can’t believe what an awesome job I have – tonight was not one of those nights.

The media coverage for the Kardashians' red carpet arrival felt like the President was coming into town. All that attention also meant very little space for every one of us there. I have been in the middle of a mosh pit twice in my life, once at college concert, the second time was tonight. I actually think sardines in a can have more room than I did. Cameras from various crews were resting on my head and shoulder.  Heels were dug into my toes and someone actually used my back as a desk to write on. All this so I could ask Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner why they liked “Famous Cupcakes” for two whole minutes.

However, according to Kim Kardashian, “Hate is the new love” so apparently I must be head over heels in love with tonight’s event.

    I never buy any magazine with Kim on the cover and don't watch their show. .now I will go one step further, I will not comment ever in any of their threads. If we all do this they'll go away.

    It's news because each and everyone one of you clicked the link and read the article. You've already shown that you care enough just by that act alone. Don't kill the messenger. She's doing her job. The Kardashians are news, all publicity is good publicity.

    Hey Sandra? Have you noticed Khourtney lately? She’s due with a “not pushed out baby” in another couple of weeks. And didn’t another one JUST get married about a week ago to someone she’s known for all of a month?????? Try to keep up, okay?

    Uh, isn't kourtney also like...29 years old? If she waited any longer to "push out a baby" she'd be taking it to daycare on her Hoverround. You are all idiots whoever posts to this – to actually take the two seconds to write a comment about your view on this matter gives them all that much more attention that they so badly want. Do everyone else a favor, jealous folks, the media's a lot like TV, usually if there's something you see you don't like, turn the channel, or in this case, skip over it?

    You obviously like them enough to comment on an article about them....otherwise, wouldn't it be "don't like them – don't pay attention to them"? Does it really make you feel better? Are you mothers teaching THAT to your children? Don't blame the Kardashians....blame the mirror. The one thing that is worse than over exposed celebutants – is the army of curvy figured/facially challenged women in this country that shake their fist at the tabloids in one hand and hold a bucket of KFC in the other. Do yourselves a favor and get up off the couch, put the lap top down, put away the bon bons and take all that hate out on a treadmill. Maybe your significant other will watch less "Kardashians" and pay more attention to you. Win – Win, wouldn't you agree?

    sandies sentiment...
    She didn’t make a sex tape to be sold on the open market………..Like many people do they made a video for themselves not for the world to see………………..If you don’t like this country GET OUT!

    yes, they may have done it just for their private viewing pleasure, but even a moron should know , especially now and this day and age,if there are any embarrassing pictures and or videos, and you are even remotely famous( kim and ray=being singer brandys brother)_ then hello, its gonna get out some way some how( just ask dr mcsteamy!!!!)

    and wasnt it not too long ago kourtneys man and her were on the rocks, due to his flirting/womanizing??? now a baby comes along and its all good??? maybe for awhile but eventually hes gonna want to go back to carousing the clubs... and where is she gonna be? a single parent probably..at least our tax $$ wont be supporting it, i can say that much about her at least. =provide/support for her son/daughter with or with out her boyfriend...

    we only have ourselves to blame, they would not be famous unless people watched them. Yes, we created them. However it is funny when they are "hired" for a concert??? They never sing and they simply gyrate on the stage, so I guess you can say that they have about as much talent a Stripper (no offense, that might be insulting the exocit dancers that are actually good.) They cannot act and do not even try to say the porn that started all this mess was any good. I know wet potato sacks were better in bed then she was. So yes, these people have no talent, but they are famous, because of idiots like us. Oh well, turn off the channel and read a book

    “Oh Stop the hate- Those girls are making money and supporting themselves. They are not pushing out babies that they cannot afford nor are they cozing up to old geezers to stay in the good life.”

    "Hey Sandra? Have you noticed Khourtney lately? She’s due with a “not pushed out baby” in another couple of weeks. And didn’t another one JUST get married about a week ago to someone she’s known for all of a month?????? Try to keep up, okay?"

    Hey BIRD – Sandra's point wasn't that they're not pushing out babies but that thyy're not pushing out babies they can't afford – Quite frankly they can afford as many as they want! And Khloe didnt exactly marry an "old geezer." It seems like YOU need to keep up!

    What's funny is that everyone reading this blog, complaining about how this is not newsworthy, took the time to click and read. Not like you didnt see their names in the link, right? Everyone of us opened this to read what happened. Either Carolyn did an excellent job with her blog title to lead you in or everyone saw the name and said what now. If you feel its not newsworthy, then DONT CLICK ON THE LINK. Really people, everyone knows this is where we have led our society, its like a train wreck, you dont want to, but you just have to look. You have 2 choices, be a leader and try to avoid the glorified life these people lead or shut up and get on the back of the bus. But stop complaining already, either do something about it or CLIP IT!

    I believe that what the Kardashian women are doing is called ENDORSING a product...just like every other celebrity out there. They may not be actors, or atheletes, but for whatever reason, they are in the public spotlight. If you don't like them, don't watch their shows, or buy the products they endorse. Just remember that what you see of them on TV, or magazines, is probably a very small aspect of their true personalities, and lives. They are human, just like you and I, and it's no ones right to judge another. They are business women, who own their own clothing stores, as well as participate in many charity events and organizations. It's one thing to say you hate someone that you know personally, but to hate someone you've never even seen? Doesn't sound too good to me...be nice, people.

    What have these women ever done? Why does the news media even cover them? I just don't get it. The only thing they have ever done is appear on a reality show demonstrating bad behavior. They are spoiled, childish, and have no insight into the real world. They had an educated father and a mother who married any man she could find for money. Too bad they took after their mother. I used to think Bruce Jenner was a class act until I saw him with this crew. They are all just white trash with money and fame. And, as we all know, both money and fame can be fleeting. Then where will they be! Still white trash!

    hummm guess this is why they are so popular, everyone on here is talking about them!

    I happen to be among the few, apparently, that like the Kardashians! Kris is not a bad mother, she happens to be a fairly decent one from what I can see on the show, she spends time with her kids, worries about her kids, and genuinely care for her children, all of them, along with her 4 step children.

    We all learn at one point in time or another that we all reap the harvest we sow. If they sow a bad one, they will reap it, just as everyone else does. Eventually it will happen, but those girls have already been through a LOT, along with their brother, over the loss of their beloved father... which would be the reason they are famous in the first place, he was part of the OJ defense team. The End.

    Will somebody please 'splain to me exactly what it is that the Famous Kardashians are famous for, besides being famous? Anything? Anything at all? Do they sing, dance, create, or do anything of socially redeeming value besides grossly overvalue themselves in society? Is there anything else of substance to these self-congratulatory, self-aggrandizing people than the sad shallowness of fleeting beauty? Is the society we live in equally shallow to the extent that we're willing to acquiesce in this charade? Shame on all of us - including the Cash-In Kardashians - if this is the case.

I can't figure how being the child of a defense attorney gives you the right to be on TV and pollute the media even more.
