I’m not going to apologize for my desire to buy trash magazines and catch up on celebrity gossip. I realize it’s not the most intellectually stimulating reading material. I also realize that it’s not like I’m busy working on my PhD and I’m normally a more intellectual person. I’m just gonna say, it’s what I like so take it or leave it.
What I will apologize for is my obsession with the Kardashian family. I have tried to fight it. Before this whole Kim and Kris divorce, I embraced my inner Kardashian. I realize once again that it’s not one of my finer qualities but they are beautiful to look at and entertaining to watch.
After the divorce I felt slighted by them. I felt like a pawn in their media sherade. Their never-ending quest for growing the Kardashian franchise. I banned them from our house. My love affair was over.
But then there was this one day when I stumbled across the show again. I thought it couldn’t hurt for me to watch a second. The second became five minutes which turned into the entire show. I was sucked back into their greedy, gloriously entertaining marketing ploy!
And before long I found myself explaining why Kim and Kris’ marriage couldn’t succeed. What is it about their long lushes locks and layers of over priced makeup? What is it about their crazy curves and family drama that draw me in?
I’m sorry Indiana University for being on the list of alumni. I’m sorry Kelley School of Business who would not be proud to say I’m a graduate. I’m sorry mom who paid so much money for my education. My name is Heli and I love the Kardashians!
