I have a confession to make: I haven’t kept up with the Kardashians. Sorry. I wasn’t going to mention this because I didn’t want to upset anyone, but keeping up with the Kardashians just hasn’t been one of my priorities during this century. In fact, I’ve tried to ignore them. Please forgive me.
1. The who?
1. My favorite Kardashian is the blue one, with ice powers. I hope she beats the undead yellow one this season.
Actual answer: I dated an acolyte. I can’t speak Kardashian, but I can understand it. I just wish they hadn’t eaten ten minutes of Chris Rock’s live special.
2. I’m not a great listener.
3. Surprise set by pre-madness Dave Chappelle at a comedy club. I’ve never seen anyone as on as he was that night. He could have convinced that crowd to torch City Hall.
4. I can’t reject a Coke Zero. That black magic has a hold on me.
5. Proper strivers don’t treat workers like people. They grasp the whip, and crack it until can’t hear the yawning chasm inside.
I have lived a Kardashian-free life - at least when it comes to watching their so-called show. What the fuck is THAT all about? The one thing I have not been able to avoid is the Kardashian ass. Why this should become a cultural phenomenon is beyond me. I thought J-Lo had cornered that market long ago - didn't care about that either, but went, "well, okay, if people want to be ass-obsessed, have a nice day - I've got better mental places to be". I still don't understand why the Kardashians are famous. Except for being famous.
I just don't get it.. And I'm okay with that! I just have one question: How is it that Star Trek came up with the Kardashians before the Kardashians became The Kardashians?
I haven't kept up with the Kardashians either, at least in the form of watching the show. Mainly through lack of interest, plus I rarely watch regular TV after getting out of the habit when I worked evening shifts. I do come across news online about them since the news organizations seem to think they are of interest to people and write about them often.
I'm the kind of person who probably wouldn't recognize most celebrities out in public. I did once see Billy Barty.
Coconut La Croix is a strange choice for anyone other than my sister-in-law who likes those kinds of drinks.
We offer drinks to workmen. My wife sometimes bakes brownies for them.
Ooh I just realized I have a Kardashian adjacent story. I was on a press trip in Vail and the hotel press contact was talking with us about the property and then somehow it came up that the Kardashians had come to town and wanted to stay there.
But they had all these crazy asks and wanted like a whole floor for free and he said he told them no and they stayed somewhere else. So some people are Keeping Out The Kardashians. 🥁
I stopped watching TV in 2010, after two friends died of brain cancer, and I made the choice to cherish my brain and use it. But there was a fucking recession going on and I live in the West San Fernando Valley, so I got a retail job at Nordstrom where rich people yelled at me to "Iron this!" and "wrap that!" while letting their great danes shit near the designer shoes, as Kardashians roamed the aisles.
That's what Kardashians do. They roam and shop. They're everywhere I go: car lots and farmers markets... Kardashians. Same with Fabio. He stands behind me in line at markets, smiling. He's smiling at Mon Sushi in Tarzana. I think Fabio must be part of Mon Sushi's decor. He might have come with the sushi bar stools.
I don't watch TV--my precious brain. TV comes to me.
hahaha omg the LA kardashian connect is so real - the first therapist I went to out here - her big claim to fame was "SHE HAS BEEN THERAPIST TO THE KARDASHIANS" like she even went on their tv show to help them out it was hilarious
Our daughter is studying in Armenia, and we were finally able to visit her over Christmas, after the pandemic era restrictions had died down.
One day my wife Cara leans over and says 'there are a lot of Kardashian lookalikes here.'
I hadn't noticed, since it is basically the job of a husband to not notice such things.
Having received this ITK tip, I then lifted my head up and observed that, indeed, we were swimming in the Kardashian sea.
Not in any internet-breaking sense. More like general beauty. Cheekbones and lips.
And I suppose, now that I reflect, in terms of the money needed to make the cheekbones and lips pop.
I was dating this girl in highschool and I went over to her house one time. Now, I have no idea how I convinced this girl to spend time with me, I was a nerd and she was pretty popular and hung out with the cool kids. Anyway, I was speaking with her mom in the kitchen and I have no idea how the Kardashians came up, but they did and I emphatically declared that "I hate the Kardashians and anyone that watches their show is a moron". Little did I know I was in a keeping up with the Kardashians household and the mom just quietly responded with "I love that show". Yeah that was pretty much the end of that relationship.
1. Hell damn no.
2. First no social media, then no TV, then two kids.
3. This is the one place where the universe has really shorted me. I can't recall one celebrity sighting in my time, not even of the C or D list variety.
4. My guess is another concerned citizen offered Jose a Coke Zero earlier that day.
5. The answer lies within: some people are assholes.
Hereby resolved: 1.All readers shall provide a cool beverage on a hot day to people who we invite into our homes for work or social reasons. On cold days, the same applies except we may also offer a hot beverage. 2. We shall greet people working for us with a hello every day. 3. We shall say “thank you” and “goodbye” when they leave us.
I fully relate to the labor it takes to NOT keep up with the Kardashians.
I've spent over a decade trying to avoid them, then one day I thought, "maybe the show's like... funny, because they're so shallow and dumb?" so I tried to watch one episode.
It was not funny. It's so fake and scripted it's hurts. The phoniness nearly killed me. I was in the ICU for weeks. I don't think I will ever fully recover.
In our house we only know the Kardashians as a pestilence that infiltrated the Lakers once upon a time. We died a little when Lamar Odom married one.
My most memorable encounter with a celebrity was when I came face to face with OJ Simpson on the stairs if a hotel in Italy and my partner humiliated himself by joking about the Hertz commercials Simpson used to make. . The next day,t breakfast, he introduced us to Nicole. We all waved at each other across the room. Then, a few years later, the white Bronco. Oddly, I never really remembered Attorney Kardashian. Johnny Corcoran was the one I remembered
1. Absolutely not. While - because I don't live under a rock - I am aware of their existence, that's the extent of my knowledge (oh, and that Ross played Father Kardashian in The Trial of OJ Simpson).
2. I generally try to avoid wallowing in shit.
3. Does George Bush I leaving the White House while my friends and I stood watching dressed in camos (we'd been on a disastrous camping trip - another story) count? It certainly counted for the secret service who spotted us ...
4. No one should drink anything that smells like suntan lotion. So, yes. Bold. But not beautiful.
5. People are generally rude - and 'the help' don't count. We offer drinks, too - usually tea (as it's England), but occasionally even a beer if the work's been done really well!
I love this post! This one put me solidly in the "yes, I will become a paid subscriber" category.
1. I wouldn't know a Kardashian if one walked into me.
2. Never, ever read People or Us magazines at the hair salon.
3. My kindergarten-aged daughter pushed a luggage cart into Gordon Ramsay at Logan Airport baggage claim years ago.
4. Coconut LaCroix is always the BEST choice, in a non-alcoholic beverage context.
5. You got me. Why don't more people just plain act like human beings these days?
Who are the Kardashians?
