Keeping Up with the Kardashians

I know that this post might anger some people (and to those people I am truly sorry) but I needed to get this out.  The main reason why I wanted to write this post really came from a headline that I read the other day about the Kardashian family and E! signing a 3 year deal for a reported $40 million dollars to keep “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” on the air into their ninth season.

Plain and simple this scares me.  Why is it that people are suffering and starving in the world and people like the Kardashians continue to make more and more money.  I have to shake my head because I honestly don’t understand.  Our society has elevated these people to super stardom and I don’t understand why.

That is why I think people need to stop giving celebrities like this family the power.  Take a stand.

So here are the Best 3…Reasons to Stop Watching ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’:

1.  What have the Kardashians done for you lately?

2.  They are millionaires

3.  They are addicted to fame

Really what have the Kardashians done for me or you lately?  Nothing (or maybe give you one hour of entertainment) – that is all.  Yet, they are they are constantly in the spotlight and constantly getting richer and richer while everyday, average people are struggling to make ends meet.  Do they help those people?  NO…Just think about it – WHAT HAVE THE KARDASHIANS DONE FOR YOU LATELY?  Hopefully that will get you to stop watching them.

They are millionaires who just recently added $40 million to their accumulated wealth.  Does anyone see how bad that is?  Honestly, kids go hungry, people struggle to get through their day and pay the bills – some people have to choose between food or heat.  Millions of people are without a job, having to rely on food banks and the generosity of others…and the Kardashians keep getting richer. Really, really scary.

As for my last Best 3 pick, it is true – this is a family (with some more than others) that are addicted to fame.  Case in point, Kim Kardashian (and maybe in an alternate universe and I had a chance to meet her and get to know her – she would be so nice and friendly) but in reality or right now in the present, this is a woman that marries on tv (to get ratings) and then files for divorce after 72 days.  It was huge news.  Now she is parading around New York (and whatever other city she might be) with Kanye West.  Holding hands – the PDA.  Can you say someone is addicted to fame a little too much!  Just plain scary.


PS:  I truly do apologize to those people that like the Kardashians, I just can’t support them in any way.
