I am fascinated by society and culture, especially the obsession with celebrities. Has this family done anything productive for society? Please help me understand why they are famous.
And I am the only one who thinks that Bruce Jenner is hiding in the closet with a video camera?
I HATE that show, and also Gene Simmons's. And also a new one about Ice T, whom I adore as an actor and person and musician...but...have they all become so low or impoverished that they have to put their private lives on display for money? That's not what we admired them for. AAARGH! Not to mention Jamie Lee Curtis and her sponsorship of Activa.
Well, I might have missed part of your point, but I do have to say that airing the intimate lives of celebrities (and whoever the Kardashians are) adds nothing to humanity.
Now, I leave this to social scientists who want to study this; hopefully they'll have something to add that benefits us all.
They have done nothing worthy of their fame. Now Bruce Jenner the stepdad is another story.
Can't say that's a show I ever watched. I think there are too many reality TV shows. Do you remember a time when MTV actually played music videos?
They are famous because they have no talent and they are a beacon of hope to every shallow teenager out there that they, too, can find a way into the limelight if they tenaciously and shamelessly seek fame?
I only know one Kardashian and it's only because I've seen her on the cover of a magazine while waiting in line at the supermarket. I don't even know why they are famous.
I wiki'd them and am none the wiser. Famous for being famous I guess. Not jealous either, if that's what they crave they're welcome to it. I'd rather people said Hi, or laughed at a joke because they like me rather than wanted to curry favour with me.
Celebrity = shallow.
I've never heard of them. I thought this was a post about Star Trek, because I thought there were Kardashians, or at least something similar in that.
I couldn't get past the the Star Trek thing when Karshashian (the lawyer, and, I guess, maybe, their father?) became famous because of his involvement in the "OJ" trial. Here in the US, for some reason (even if we tune out of all "that stuff" and don't pay attention), we've all heard the name often enough now that I don't think of Star Trek SO MUCH when I now hear/see it. (Hope none of those sisters marry someone by the name of Ferangi, Klingon, or Borg. Whether they keep their own name, hyphenate, or take their husband's name - it would all amount to some version of the same kind of jokes.)
All the problems they have are totally fabricated. Show stinks, cloe will be a balloon, the family is full of themselves
They don't matter and over here in the UK, nobody even really knows who they are.
England is starting to fall in to America's celebrity culture, and to be honest I despise it. Take the Katie Price, jade Goody style headlines which took the rags of glamour newspapers by storm, I really couldn't give a flying.
The Kardashians are famous, and they have reached tat level for no particular reason.
All this shows is that the mass media has way too much sway in America.
They were giving Miami a bad rep so we kicked them out.
Emily R. nailed it! They are every dumb girl's hope.
I was thinking the same thing, however I admire their business sense, they have managed to take their everyday living, and promote themselves, and become millionaires, I am wondering what am I doing wrong.
And to think someone could use a good liver or kidney. That's what really keeps me up at night. I thought Paris Hilton was horrifying enough, but the Kardashians are a special breed of soul-sucking reptilians. I would sooner give a teenager a copy of the Anarchist Cookbook than encourage one to watch five mins of that horrible show. I was coerced by a friend to consume almost a whole 5 minutes of it and he only changed the channel when I threatened to become physically ill. We watched Three's Company instead. I've never been so grateful to see Norman Fell.

I must admit that I never understood the 'Honey BooBoo' phase, but at least that's over with now. But, what is it with the Kardashian family? As I understand it, one daughter (who cannot sing, dance or act) did a sex tape and now this is the most famous family in America. The Dad,...

Is there a reason why I should care that Prince Harry is in the military?I'm not saying anything against the military, the war, etc. But why is it when Prince Harry does something, the media is up in arms? Where are the world wide articles on everyone else in the military who does the...

What celebrity would you like to see disappear forever?I don't mean for them to die, but to fade in permanent obscurity. I pick the whole Kardashian family.

People either love them or hate them. But it is a fact -- they are an enormously famous and successful brand. Do you secretly watch The Kardashians? If yes, why? If not, why not?
