You’ve probably already heard by now that Rebel Wilson came out and said she declined an offer to present an award with the Jenner girls at the most recent VMA’s. She said, “It’s not that I hate any of then individually, but it’s just just that everything they stand for is against everything I stand for. And they’re not famous for talent. I worked really hard to get where I’ve gotten to.” That was last week. This week, Oprah has come out and said that she believes they actually do work hard. I saw this article on Buzzfeed where she says that she and her team followed them around for 7 hours along with the Keeping Up with the Kardashian team. After Oprah left, the KUWTK team stayed for another 7 hours. HELLO? This is reality television. I’m not saying that being filmed for 14 hours is easy, but I could definitely think of worse things to be doing for the same amount of time.
Rebel Wilson also made mention that Kim Kardashian got famous from a sex tape when Rebel went to acting school and put in work; she did her time, so to speak. I feel two ways about this. Kim K never claimed she was an actress so although I know where Rebel is coming from, it’s a little bit null and void. I also know not to take what Rebel said quite so literally. However, if it weren’t for the sex tape and her mother, Kimmy would probably still be Paris Hilton’s assistant – if she even needs one anymore.
I know Kim’s father was one of OJ’s lawyers but it wasn’t until after he died that they even came out of the woodwork. Honestly, I didn’t even put the two together until about 5 years ago. How come Kris or any of the kids didn’t capitalize on their last name before? If we’re being real here, I would have had signs made to wear around my neck “Famous person’s daughter. Give me things.” And if we’re being really real here, I think Kris has her hand in leaking the video. Or is this old news? Moving on.
All of that being said, let me be fair. It takes a lot to be ON all the time. I definitely do not envy what Khloe is going through with Lamar. Even though she’s asked for privacy when it’s needed, there’s cameras and paparazzi all over them. I also give Rob a ton of credit for saying enough is enough when he needed to be out of the limelight and get himself sorted. However, they signed on for all of this. Maybe not the paps and fleas like Harvey from TMZ invading their privacy, but no celebrity signs on for that. Other celebrities also don’t alert the media every time they go to the bathroom.
If you’ve noticed, I am trying to conveniently leave the Jenner girls out of this. I know that’s who Rebel Wilson was essentially talking about in the first place, but I think they get lumped in with the others and it kind of isn’t fair. In my opinion, they aren’t trying to ride on the Kardashian name to further their careers. Or at least Kendall isn’t. Kendall is doing her own thang. And why shouldn’t she? She’s young and gorgeous therefore she’s got 2-5 years before she has to worry.
Kylie, well, hopefully she marries rich.
What do you think? Do you think the Kardashians work hard or hardly work? Or am I just being an ignorant, bitter hatter? (like usual)
