Kim Kardashian has become a cultural phenomenon mostly for being attractive and being born to someone who defended O.J. Simpson. She has become a celebrity, a model, and great at hocking many products that you can put a K in front of, which is fine. People who are famous for being famous or attractive or an heir to something come and go. Paris Hilton was talked about for months before imploding on herself like a herpes filled supernova.
However, with the Kardashian divorce kerfuffle and now subsequent dating of Kanye West, Kim Kardashian’s expiration date for fame has passed, and yet she is still very famous, with the top show on the E!

However, his public persona is infamously unsavory; he’s a douche, and everyone knows it. This is important though because his public persona is so out there, annoying and in your face, it enables him make excellent, open, soul exposing music. It is tantamount to appear tough right before you read a poem about your mother dying. With the faked romance however, Kanye West is losing a lot of credibility, while also alienating the fans that have stuck with him for the music in spite of the antics.
2. It’s all for TV.
Before Kris Humphries (whose name starts with a “K”) Kim Kardashian allegedly tried to recruit other NBA players to be her boyfriend for her show. Danilo Gallinari of the Denver Nuggets was initially recruited, but declined her offer, because of his pesky soul. She then settled, as any woman would have to, on Humphries.

1. Accidental Avant-Garde Mess
Blending reality with fiction is how all reality shows function. While the Jersey Shore may fake a situation, they are essentially hot tub thumping as they would without cameras. The Kardashian show essentially denies that fiction is happening, despite everyone knowing better….more
