The success of Kim Kardashian‘s mobile game Kim Kardashian Hollywood doesn’t surprise me. Like it or not, the Kardashians are a cultural phenomenon that isn’t going away anytime soon.
There are two things, however, which I do not understand. Why would anyone pay money to be a virtual Kim Kardashian? People are paying money – and a lot of it – to join their virtual Kim on virtual vacations, to dress their pretend self like the real Kim, and so on. It has been estimated that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star will earn $85 MILLION this year from the game. And this brings me to my second question. Why is Kim taking her clothes off for obscure magazines every other week if she’s bringing in that kind of money for basically doing nothing? Obviously, it’s for the attention, but still. I don’t get it.
The trailer is short but packed full of scripted family drama. Kris Jenner begins to date Corey Gamble, 33, to ease the hurt from Bruce Jenner‘s rumored relationship with her former best friend. Kourtney Kardashian recruits Scott Disick to shave her hoohaa and he directs her to “spread them wide, spread them long, and I will go in there like a lawnmower.” Kim Kardashian wants two things: 1) A baby. Kim’s desire for a South West will be front and center. 2) To be as skinny and successful as little sister Kendall Jenner. “I’m not buying her a f-cking pair of shoes,” a jealous Kim gripes about Kendall. “I bought her a f-cking career.” Ugh. I. Can’t. Stand. Her. You know someone sucks at life when you’d rather watch her sister get her hoohaa shaved. Watch the trailer below.
