Why are the Kardashians famous ? How did Kim get famous?

Our attraction to stupidity and the reality TV celebrities that surround us

We often find ourselves watching reality TV shows or staring at a magazine cover on the shelf, while we wait for the supermarket teller to drag our frozen goods across the beeper, or while we are parked on that comfy couch we spat out all our savings to obtain. And lately.... I find myself asking the question, WHY? Why am I staring at these people? And what is it that we find so fascinating about any of them.

Maybe it is that they look the way we want to look, or maybe it’s the very opposite. Is it the obnoxious tone of Kim Kardashians voice that makes us feel better about our own, or the dysfunctional relationship shared between her and her family that makes you think, "Hey those guys are ripped, but I have a brain". Yet, how many of us laugh at these individuals, who open up their lives for our amusement. These individuals who push the book so far, that they really are selling their lives. So how many of us just watch and giggle, and then how many of us idolize these morons? Are so many of us getting lost in this twisted reality, that we are beginning to think, that these people are the norm?

One would think, that in an attempt to humanize these 'individuals', the media started to take an interest in making their every move public. Was this to show that they are human? But somewhere along the line they lost the point. As the 'entertainment' became more unreal, and embarrassing to watch, we become more interested in their overly fake lives, which, after all, are simply a desperate cry for attention to make more of the big bucks.

Let us hope that someday, for the sake of our brains, the celebrity will push it too far, for example, marrying for a month and getting divorced, simply for publicity, or adopting or conceiving a child, for the good of their careers. Let us hope when that day comes, the average Jenny Soap, or Joe sofa will take a step back and think, "Wow, this person is just a jackass. However, it is a little too late for that, when the era of this kind of stupidity has already begun.

On the bright side, if you ask any onlooker now, you will notice a steady decline in the amount of envy, and a spike in feelings pity and laughter.

Have a great weekend everyone, and try to look forward when you're in line at the grocery store. Resist the urge.....

Is Chris Jenner (the Kardashian Mom) a Pimp?

      @midasfx, I think you may have dodged a cannonball there. I have known way to many unstable celeb lovers who who don't know the difference between real people and fake people.

      I like the way you highlighted dysfunctional relationship it reminds me of the time I was seeing this girl who was very into pop culture and she bribed me to watch Twilight with her. At the end of the movie she looked at me and said why can't you be more like Edward. That moment changed my life. Need less to say, that relationship ended shortly after since I was not an underaged vampire ninnie prancing around with glittery makeup on my face...

      I too stay away from watching celebrity reality shows. I tried to watch the Kardashians once when I had company addicted to it. Dippy Do lost a ring worth thousands of dollars when she went swimming on was absolutely ridiculous.

      @midasfx. I wrote a hub on cutting the cord. My wife likes the soaps and thus, i can't do it right now. Which brings me to my next point. In my random rant that created the above article, I did, in fact not realize that I had called them joe soap and jenny sofa. Very good point, Thank you.

      I too avoid all mainstream crap, as listed above. I actually gave up my tv because there is simply a lack if good tv shows. And just my opinion but it should be joe sofa and jenny Soap as dudes often become part of the sofa and the girlies love the daytime soaps. Lol. Great hub cfin!
