The Hamptons are not ready to be taken over by Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian. Within hours of the news breaking that the reality stars will be shooting Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons this summer in the upper crust Long Island, New York Summer paradise, the locals took to Twitter to share their feelings about the coming Kardashian invasion.
The reality sisters often shoot a Keeping Up With the Kardashians spin-off during the summer, with previous seasons following them living it up and opening a new DASH store in Miami and one with Kim Kardashian in New York City. Remember that one?? It had the awkward addition of Kris Humphries?!?! E! doesn't seem to play that season over and over in re-runs. Wonder why?
Even worse for the famewhores Kardashian clan, the movement against them is gaining steam. “In a grass roots effort, we have collected [thousands of] signatures for a petition asking E! Entertainment to remove the Kardashian suite of shows from their programming,” petition organizer Cyndy Snider said in a statement to Yahoo News. “We feel that these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption.”
The more popular petition via GoPetition.com now has over 80,000 signatures (it had 55,000 this morning) — a vast increase from the 15,000 it had yesterday. It is not just an organized effort to get the Kardashian/Jenner clan off television screens, but also to put an end to their empire which includes clothes, perfume and nail polish bottles.
“While some may have begun watching the spectacle as mindless entertainment or as a sort of ‘reality satire,’ it is a sad truth that many young people are looking up to this family and are modeling their appearance and behavior after them,” Cyndy continued. “I’ll remind you here that the Kardashian family fame largely started with a ‘leaked’ sex tape.” Preach sister!
Cyndy adds that whether the petition works or not, she will continue to circulate it on the World Wide Web. “There is no particular religious or political platform behind our disgust; we are just finally fed up,” she added.
Meanwhile, a new report by the NY Post is stating Kimmie is planning to take some time away from the public (haven’t we heard this before???). Apparently, Kimmie really, really wants the public to know she is still mourning the end of her marriage despite posting kissy face photos on her blog this week!
The Post reports Kim is “keeping an uncharacteristically low profile” and has told her team to cancel all promotional obligations until her New Year’s Eve gig in which she’ll host a party at TAO Las Vegas. Kim has also canceled a ShoeDazzle tour in the UK, two book tours and an appearance at Z100’s Dec. 9 Jingle Ball. Her sisters Khloe and Kourtney will be forced to promote the novel they penned with Kim, titled “Dollhouse” without her this week in NYC.
Unfortunately for Kim, I believe her career is done whether she takes time away from the public or not. Like I stated weeks ago, once the media starts to turn on you the end of your “career” is near. It happened to Paris Hilton, it happened to Heidiand Spencer, and now it’s happening to Kim Kardashian. The Kardashians (mostly Kim and pimpmomager Kris Jenner) definitely got too comfortable and definitely too arrogant with their fame. Must say they didn’t think this latest stunt all the way through. They overestimated how much the public really loved them, when in fact most of the public were simply only tolerating them. It appears the talentless family have now worn out their welcome.
You, however, have to love the irony that Kim (who made them famous with her sex tape) is the same one ending their reign of A-list fame with her quickie divorce.
