You know, I often think that if we normal people would just ignore all things Kardashian, the family would slowly fade into obscurity. Of course, I realize the irony of me wishing this would happen while blogging about them. I also realize it is never going to happen if non-normal (read: wacky celebs and "news correspondents") people keep giving them the time of day.
That said, I have an announcement to make. I am now watching Good Morning America for the first time ever. I don't know why I waited this long as I think George Stephanopoulos is hot, and I adore Amy Robach. The TODAY Show is dead to me. I'm sorry, Al Roker. I'll always think highly of you, as I know the show stripped you of extra time with your best pal Ann Curry, but to Matt Lauer (I blame you for Ann!) and the rest of the morning show's cronies, I say, for shame. (P.S. I still heart you, Willie Geist!)

In the wake of the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy, our President and First Lady led the nation in a moment of silence to honor those lost in the terrorist attacks. All of the major networks and news channels simultaneously aired the moment of silence…except the TODAY Show. The TODAY Show was too busy interviewing Kris Jenner about the decision to film her boob job for KUWTK. Riveting. In all fairness, she was touting the importance of knowing one's implants' expiration date and making sure to switch out said older implants with a newer variety.
While Kris flapped her injected lips about what a great guy Kanye West is, the rest of the nation was remembering those who gave their lives during a defining moment in history. Way to keep it classy, TODAY. Not surprisingly, Twitter went crazy with people sharing their disdain for the network, many calling for a boycott of both NBC and the Kardashians. The Celebrity Cafe reports that the TODAY Show did take to heart these tweets, benevolently adding the moment of silence to the West Coast airing…a mere three hours too late. Yeah, that makes it better.
Oh, Lord. GMA has the Sisters Kardashian on to promote their new whatever. Can't a girl catch a break?
In an attempt to get back in the nation's good graces, Kris is addressing those pesky rumors that she spoke poorly about Honey Boo Boo. I mean, seriously, you don't like Honey Boo Boo? How un-American can you get? Kris tells E!, "I would never criticize her, because I don't even really know who Honey Boo Boo is," adding, "I've never seen the show." Of course, she also lets it slip that until recently she thought Honey Boo Boo was a dog. Oh Kris, you should have stopped just short of that comment. I wish Glitzy would poo on your kitchen table.
While she was singing his praises on the TODAY Show, Radar Online reports that Kris is none to happy that Kanye won't stop yapping about Kimmie's sex tape. He does rap in his new song, "Eat breakfast at Gucci. My girl a superstar all from a home movie." Bwahahahaha! It's rumored that he used to watch the movie to get in the mood. I just threw up in my mouth a little and may have to go take a Lifetime shower–you know, the kind where you rock back and forth and cry!
A source close to Kris shares, “Kris had stern words with Kanye when she saw that he said he would put Kim's sex tape on while romping with other women. She thinks it’s a disrespectful claim and told Kanye to stop talking about it at every given opportunity. As far as Kris is concerned, the video with Ray J is history and since then Kim has become a reality TV star, a fashion designer, even a philanthropist – so she’s moved on."
The insider continues, “By bringing up the past, Kanye is making it worse for Kim, but he doesn’t see it as that much of a big deal. Kim is, however, caught in the middle. She wants her mom and Kanye to get along because she wants Kris to approve their marriage. She won’t if Kanye keeps doing things like this.” If I weren't so grossed out by it, I would encourage Kanye to keep screaming it from the rooftops. Anything that reminds the world just how trashy this family is I find truly hilarious.
Finally, the most normal of the family, in my opinion at least, Khloe Kardashian is being tapped as the next X Factor host. TMZ shares that Simon Cowell wants to keep the young vibe of the show, and he thinks Khloe would be the perfect compliment to judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato. Fox will have to sign off on Simon's choice, but sources claim it's "highly likely" that he'll get his way, so I apologize in advance to all of you X Factor fans out there!

TELL US-WHAT DID YOU THINK OF NBC AIRING KRIS INSTEAD OF THE 9/11 MOMENT OF SILENCE? HOW GROSS IS IT THAT KANYE USED TO GET IT ON TO KIM'S SEX TAPE? DO YOU THINK KHLOE WILL BE A GOOD X FACTOR HOST?
