OK, so I do love me some Kim Kardashian (I admit it here and now for the world to see) for beauty first and foremost…and then, also for the whole family to capitulate and capitalize on their more than 15 minutes, but it’s a one, two punch and quite frankly a knockout and Kadashian overkill now.
It all started in 2007, first there was the Kim Kardashian (and Ray J) sex tape and her popular Playboy pictorial that thrusted Kim, and subsequently the whole family into the spotlight with the E! reality show Keeping Up With The Kardasians (2007- present) which focuses on the personal and professional lives of the members of the Kardashian/Jenner family.
Next, the success of the show created their spawns and spin-offs including Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kourtney, Kim & Khloe Take New Jersey and Khloé & Lamar. Originally, Kourtney and Khloe were coming back for season 3 of Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami but Kourtney confirmed she will not be doing it. Khloe’s bff Malika will take Kourtney’s place and the show has been renamed Khloe and Malika take Miami.
There was Kim on Dancing With The Stars, and now younger brother Rob is ballrooming on the show in its current season. The youngest sisters of the clan, Kendall & Kylie are starting to make a name for themselves on the catwalk. There are Kardashian clothing stores, diet pills, workout vid, fragrance, jewelry, sunless tanner, and even images of them on credit cards. We had a Kardashian clothing collection for BeBe, and now a Kardashian Kollection at Sears, and word out on the street today is that a Kardashian Kollection Home is forthcoming.
Mama Bear, Kris Jenner is clearly the brains & the brawn of the brood muscled with an innate capacity to market, manage, franchise, and make the cash registers go CA-CHING! for the entire family, but when is enough is enough or when eight is enough?
Hmm, only time will tell because as they say a cat only has nine lives, but for today we apparently cannot eat, sleep, shop, or go pop a squat without a Kardashian in the room.
