I can’t believe it. I really can’t. Kim Kardashian, after 2 months, after that very, very costly wedding, after two months, (ok ten weeks, but it felt like two months) is getting a divorce. I guess everyone but I seemed to know it was a marriage for money only. What kind of crap is this? I mean really. She didn’t have enough money that she had to pretend to care for someone, and then marry that someone, just to increase her ratings?
Now I am the ultimate cynic, I really am. I question everything. I doubt everyone. Yet I didn’t see this coming. Admittedly, I am not a Kardashian fan. Never have been. I did like it that Kim made her butt bigger. (I thought it was nice that someone liked herself with a big bottom. I mean, how often does that happen. And my having a big butt had nothing to do with it.)
But I don’t watch reality shows as a rule. I did kind of get into big brother during its first or second year, years ago. (And when I say kind of, I mean I watched no more than three episodes.) And I did feel a twitter of excitement when I recently learned that the darn show was still on. But I did not go looking for it. (If I recall correctly, and I could be ever so wrong, it’s on CBS, right?)
When I was a kid, I did watch what I see as perhaps the very first reality show: queen for a day. Now who remembers that show? Now I was a kid back then, and would watch it with my grandmother. And for those of you who are unfamiliar with the show, I think three woman would come on the show, tell their sad stories, and one of them would be anointed queen for a day. I believe she would win prizes. I can’t recall what else. I’m unsure if the prizes corresponded to their sad stories. And I can’t recall how it was determined who would be queen. I do remember being brought to tears, and I was quite young then.
But I digress.
Even though I wasn’t a fan of Kim's, even though didn’t watch the show, even though I couldn’t have cared less whether she married or not, I feel like a sucker. I really do. I belie v I’m one of the few who supported her having a big wedding. I thought, how is it anyone’s business how much money she spends on her wedding. Yes, I understood many others were (and are) suffering economically. But how would her having a small wedding garner any more money for them. Actually, with a big wedding, Kim put money (lots of money) in many people’s pockets, thereby encouraging (a small part, I realize) growth of the economy. I was taken in.
Ok, this was my first post of November. I really hope I can keep it up. Wish me good luck. And see you tomorrow.
