Has Kim Kardashian Finally Jumped the Shark?

With the oh-so-shocking revelation that Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce from Kris Humphries, is our voyeuristic pop culture society finally sick of seeing her vapid face plastered all over every media outlet? Has she finally “jumped the shark?” Even in a culture embracing a long list of talentless, spoiled little rich girls with nothing to contribute except mindless arrogance and manufactured drama, there comes a time when people say enough is enough.

Are you there yet, America?

Kardashian’s rise to fame came from winning the birth parent lottery and coming out of the womb with a silver spoon in her mouth, having the genetics for a huge butt, hanging out with Paris Hilton in her early days, making a sex tape obviously intentionally leaked, getting the worst reality show ever, then creating the greatest farce yet – casting a fame-hungry jock to be her fiance for a ridiculous wedding only to file for divorce 72 days later, after lamenting to the press how hard marriage is.

Boo hoo.

According to TMZ, Kardashian filed for divorce October 31 from Humphries (playing himself in this made-for-TV movie,) citing “irreconcilable differences.” And so the farce ends, conveniently timed to ensure plenty of extra media coverage for the night’s Halloween costume. Good thinking.

Oh what could have ended a marriage so made in heaven? Perhaps Humphries was having trouble following the Kardashian scripts. Or maybe it was a squabble about Kim being the only one on a magazine cover for the wedding (like it’s not all about her anyway, dude, c’mon.) Perhaps the final straw was not being able to agree on a Halloween costume (Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein would have been excellent.)

I’m sure whatever it was, it was epic enough for a great Greek tragedy, or at least a TV miniseries, which is no doubt already in the works.

Here’s the real kicker – the latest report from TMZ is Kardashian is accusing Humphries of “chasing fame.”

Pot. Kettle. Black.

I mean really, people – didn’t you all hate the most popular girl in school who treated everyone like dirt and acted like an entitled princess? So why are you giving them reality shows and endorsements? Because face it – they wouldn’t get any of this crap without people watching them. You created this monster, America, and you are reaping what you sow.

Bride of Frankenstein, indeed…she’s alive…ALIVE! Can we just kill her from the airwaves now? Please?

 

Kourtney Kardashian Picks Up Publicity Slack by Announcing Pregnancy

Kourtney Kardashian announces on the cover of the new US Weekly that she’s pregnant with her first-baby-daddy’s second child. You know, Scott Disick, the alcohol-guzzling creepy guy who reminds us of Christian Bale in “American Psycho.”

“Now I’m nine weeks along,” Kardashian told the magazine. “You’re supposed to wait 12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident.”

Of course that’s the reason she didn’t want to wait to break the news. It couldn’t possibly have been that the general consensus is America is sick of hearing about Kim, so sister Kourtney has been designated “Kardashian of the Week” to carry the media-pandering torch. God forbid if we go even one week without a Kardashian in the limelight with some announcement.
