In the last 24 hours, there have been no less than three entertainment stories that have set a new low in their own way. I don’t even know where to begin.
Let’s just start with the easiest target – one of the most hated celebs - Kim Kardashian.
Providing absolute proof that her ego has outgrown her most famous asset, the new Ms. Kanye West has decided to go into politics.
Go ahead; shake your head a few times. It didn’t work for me…
After a few shakes I readjusted my computer monitor just in case I was misreading things, but this story is real. Just look at this piece from the LA Times.
Can’t bring yourself to read the LA Times story? Don’t blame you.
Here’s the gist:
“I decided I’m going to run for the mayor of Glendale,” Kardashian said, later clarifying that “it’s going to be in, like, five years.”
The reality star, who is currently a registered voter in the city of Los Angeles, said she would choose to run for office in Glendale “because it’s, like, Armenian town.” She said she needs to obtain residency in the city in order to run for the mayorship, adding that she and [her friend/campain manager] Keshishian are “looking into all the requirements.”
Before she writes the how-to book on how to get into politics (you know it’s coming), allow me to condense it into one sentence: Leak a sex tape, marry a primitive unlikable basketball player solely for publicity, barely pay taxes, have zero sense of real reality and you can step right into the world of politics.
How sad is it when a night in the sack with Ray J ends up as a stepping-stone to running a city?
Next up? Ted Nugent.
This guy is a total nutbar, but his latest remarks against Obama have unleashed a trick-snake-in-a-candy-jar of crazy.
The Nuge has said a lot of stupid crap in his time, but now he’s added a veiled threat to kill Obama to the list.
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year,” he said.
Read more of his rant here.
The US Secret Service is looking into the remarks, and appear to be taking them seriously. But how serious can you take this guy?
You can tell him that the fascist regime of Jabba The Hut is threatening the state of political harmony in the state of Michigan and he would tell you “you’re gawdang right” and then call out George Lucas as a “Commie Jedi lover” and threaten to gun him down.
Or something like that…
And finally, for some comic relief (because boy do we need it), Courtney Stodden.
If you haven’t heard of Stodden before, she’s the child bride of 51-year-old ‘Lost’ star Doug Hutchison. Stodden was apparently 16 when she married him.
Courtney is known for leaking highly inappropriate photo shoots and posting really bad videos on the Internet.
I say she’s “apparently” 17 because I – like many others on the planet – believe she’s probably closer to 30 or 40. It wouldn’t shock me to learn one day that their marriage has been one giant Kardashian-size publicity stunt.
Forget about Obama’s birth certificate, I wanna see HERS!
Anyway, the latest news on poor Courtney is that her reality show that she was pitching to MTV was not picked up, so she’s resorted to filming her own web series.
I’ve posted a clip for you to check out below, and if you can make it past the 2-minute mark you will attain superhero status in my books. You’ll also be just as amazed as I was that it flopped, considering she spends eight whole minutes complaining that her foot hurts.
Am I wrong in my assumption that glass heels were built for comfort, just like Crocs?
And don’t be fooled by the intro that states she turns 18 in August.
