The Kardashians: The 3 K's of the Apocalypse
The Kardashians show no signs of slowing down. With constant news "gems" in the press almost daily, for instance Kim Kardashian pregnant with Kanye West's baby or Khloe desperately trying to conceive with her Lakers' husband Lamar Odom or Kourtney going for baby number #2 with her unique boyfriend who loves alcohol at least on the show, who ever does their publicity should win an Oscar for best Screen Writer. The Kardashian sisters are the best marketers for Botox, Plastic Surgery, Weight Loss Gimmicks, Buying Clothes, Primping and Preening, Waxing, Los Angeles Lakers, Babies, Gossip Magazines & Blogs, E!, Ryan Seacrest, Shopping Addictions and an ill fated Master Card with predatory lending fees. The Kardashians constant repetition in our consciousness reminds me of a saying from Shakespeare, "portend no good for us".
The Kardashians are one of the best case studies of modern global marketing. I think their mother Kris Kardashian-Jenner should run for Governor of California or Mayor of Los Angeles because she would no how to turn the economic recession around.
