Hate them all you want, but I love the way those Kardashians keep saying, “ka ching, ka ching.” Page Six is reporting that momager Kris Jenner has secured a record-breaking $100 million plus deal! Can you wrap your head around that number? $100 million? Plus?! It’s like they have their very own Powerball numbers that keep on hitting.
I know what you’re all saying. You hate the Kardashians. You’re sick of them. All because of a sex tape. Hmmm…meow and meow.
I’m always amused that someone can do something when they are in their early 20’s and it defines them for the rest of their life. Kim Kardashian had sex. How outrageous! A 20 something woman had sex with someone she was in a relationship with. When her ex put it out there for the world to see, there was a choice to be made. A) Crawl under a rock or B) build the latest 15 minutes into a multi-million dollar enterprise. It seems Kim is not a fan of rocks because she chose B. I wonder if America would have been more forgiving if she had let us turn her into a punchline as she faded into obscurity because at this point, she could cure cancer and we’d still be hearing about her sex tape.
Kris Jenner had been married to Robert Kardashian, famous for being OJ’s best friend. She was also married to world-famous Olympic athlete, Bruce Jenner, but the sex tape made them famous? Ok. Tell yourselves that. Maybe the sex tape pushed them to the front of the reality television line but truth is we’ve been reading about the Kardashian and Jenner families for a long time.
America has always had a love/hate relationship with celebrities. Back in the day, it was enquiring minds that wanted to know. Give Kris Jenner credit for taking control of her family’s story from the tabloids and seeing reality television as the best marketing tool in the world. Love them or hate them, but come on, the sex tape wasn’t that good. $100 million, years after people are Kardashian’d out? I don’t think so, because if the sex tape was all it’s about, you can just skip the shows, Instagram pictures, Tweets, and everything else they put out there and just buy the tape online.
I’ll admit. I’m a little sick of them too but that’s why I don’t watch the show. I don’t follow any of them on social media, and when I see a news story, I don’t click on it, except, of course, when I see $100 million plus. Then, I click and wonder when they are going to open up a Kardashian Kollege and teach the rest of us how to turn hate into millions of dollars because if there’s anything that family knows how to do, it’s turn hate into dollars, millions of dollars. I also click and think, “you go girls!”
They aren’t selling themselves as the family that’s saving the world. They are hardly setting themselves up as relationship experts. They are women who like pretty things, pick the wrong men, and enjoy taking selfies. Sounds like a lot of people I know. They just happen to be getting paid $100 million plus to continue doing all of those things for an American public that made them famous. God Bless America!
