You may hate to love them, but the reality is, people love Reality TV and the stars are getting rich. Reality TV first took off with Survivor over a decade ago, but in the passed few years, it has evolved into so much…less than that. Forget the elaborate challenges and exotic locations, simply following around spoiled brats or watching people make fools of themselves whilst pissed drunk is now making some people richer than you can imagine. I’m sure this has kids some kids saying, “Forget being a doctor or fireman, mommy, I wanna be a reality star when I grow up!”
Some reality stars are better than others at making the most of what has been handed to them and seizing the many money-making opportunities around them. A lot of the top earning reality stars came from money anyway, while others are just getting started. From book deals, to appearance fees, to Dancing & Skating With The Stars, to product endorsements…Reality TV has opened many doors for many people. The Daily Beast has compiled the list of the Top 10 highest paid reality stars this past year. Who do you think is number one? Check out the list below.
You best get your holiday Christmas cards out if you want to keep up with the Kardashians. The over the top celebrity family released their glam holiday card for fans to enjoy. Khloe says, “our card this year might be my favorite,” while Kim like it because of “a new addition to the family… little Mason!” Kourtney‘s 1-year-old “wanted to wear a suit since Mason and Scott were wearing suits.” Adorable. How fierce (and old) does Kim look!
For a “Merry Christmas” card, they sure don’t seem very merry. Who would want to spend the holidays with a family as plastic, pouty, and angry looking as they are portraying themselves in their portrait. Forget “Keeping Up,” try “Cheering Up”.
Phew, I am one tired biznatch. Patrick, Tyrell, Brian and myself decided to spend Thanksgiving with a few of our Seattle friends this weekend and partake in the festivities. You know the important ones. Shopping on Black Friday, playing drinking games with friends and dancing the night away to “Whip My Hair” & “What’s My Name?“.
On the drive back home, we stopped by Target and Best Buy to look for Christmas gifts. I’m not sure if it was a case of overtiredness, delusional behavior from dealing with the crowds or if there was still copious amounts of alcohol in our blood system from the night before. But whatever the case was… we got a huge case of the giggles at the book aisle in Target.
What started off as a shout-out to our favorite Hills girl, Lauren Conrad, quickly turned into interpretations of other celebrity book covers. At one point, and I’m not even remotely exaggerating here, I was laughing so hard, I could barely keep my iPhone still to take the picture. When Patrick does a certain reality contestant, it had us laughing so hard and for so long, I thought we were going to get kicked out. The looks we were getting from other shoppers were UH-MAZING. Like, look at these crazy homos. God, love the suburbs.
I always knew these hookers were a detriment to society. A few months ago, I was perplexed why people insist on “Keeping Up With Kardashians“. Now we know why they receive such high ratings… prison inmates are forced to watch them. In a laugh-out loud frivolous lawsuit, a prisoner at the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections is claiming emotional distress.
According to TMZ.com, D.J. Goodson claims he was forced to watch “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami” and developed “extreme emotional distress” due to their outrageous antics. How effing funny is that? His claim also states he’s permanently scarred from being subjected to domestic abuse (a boxing match on the show featuring Kim), emotional abuse (rantings courtesy of Kourtney and “paramour Scott”) and racism (Khloe referring to a baby doll as “the black baby”).
I just don’t get it. Yes, I enjoyed watching Khloe (the youngest of the three sisters) on Celebrity Apprentice but I just don’t get the fascination with these women and their hijinks. “Celebrities” like Kim Kardashian annoy me to no end. She road the coattails of her her famous father, Robert Kardashian (OJ Simpson’s lawyer) and Paris Hilton (another one I have issue with) to attain her celeb status, and now her two other sisters are now riding her coattails.
Sunday’s telecast for the fourth season finale of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” drew a record 4.8 million viewers for E!. It was by far the biggest audience for both the show and the network. With storylines like Kourtney’s pregnancy, Khloe’s marriage to NBA superstar Lamar Odom and Kim’s relationship with Reggie Bush, people came in record droves to watch the reality show.
We as gay men go through life being asked this question “Are there ANY girls you find attractive? That you’d sleep with?” Well…YES! I have compiled MY LIST of 12 GHEEEEORGEOUS women who I would totally go straight for. Now this list is not to be confused with girls that I am obsessed with because I’m a gay like Britney Spears, Khloe Kardashian, Mariah Carey…I would rather be their GAY rather, than their STRAIGHT…does that make sense?
My list consists of people from ages 17 to 74. So keep an open mind, this is going to be a fun one!
