Kim Kardashian: Exhibitionist Extraordinaire

Slightly old news, but still…this from Rob Shuter of Naughty But Nice:

Don’t worry if your invite to Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’ wedding gets lost in the mail, you’ll be able to watch it all on TV. An insider tells me that Kim is in talks with Ryan Seacrest’s production company to televise her over-the-top wedding on E!


“It will be a two-hour stand alone special,” my source reveals. “[Kim] is so used to having cameras follow her that she doesn’t even notice them any more. Kim really wants her fans to celebrate with her on the most important day of her life.”

No, Thanks.

I definitely won’t be watching, but I’m sure millions will. I simply can’t understand why. Why are so many people interested in following (in ever-deepening detail, I might add) someone else’s life? Why aren’t you deeply involved in creating an interesting, active life for yourself? Watching her for wedding ideas? Can you really afford to do any of what she’s doing? Buy the same gown? Hire the same caterer? Ask your friends to get gifts from your ridiculously overpriced registry choices? Purchase diamond-studded, personalized wedding favors? If so, you should have your own reality show!

How Many “Friends” Do You Really Have?

Ours has become a nation of voyeurs, so disappointed in or apathetic about our own lives that we choose to live vicariously through people who would be nobodies if they hadn’t chosen to air their laundry, dirty and otherwise, on TV. We should be out there, face to face with life. We’ve become so “connected” by TV, Facebook and Twitter, that we’re now “disconnected”, spending most of our time online somewhere, interacting blindly, never hearing emotion or passion as we read the words of our “friends”, yet somehow feeling we’ve mastered the art of relationship building.

I fully expect Kim and Kris to allow cameras into their hotel room on their wedding night. I mean, why stop at the wedding? Make it a whole, new show centered around their sex life—Kim & Kris in Wedded Bliss. What? You think that’s going too far? That ship sailed a long time ago.

If the couple continues to do a reality show, I give the marriage two years max. I expect Kris to get his boxers in a bunch when he finds a camera crew waiting for him in the bathroom every morning, fully prepared to capture his every “move” for all those fans whose hygiene routines are apparently much less interesting.

When people say, “get a life”, they mean you should get one of your own—not someone else’s.
