MTV.com asks: "Kim Kardashian: Will breakup ruin her image?"
Wait, what? No, fucking seriously...what? This is one of those rare moments I am glad for MTV.com. At least them tackling this issue saved CNN the trouble of scrolling it at the bottom of the screen while they talk about big people stuff like the 2012 election. Then again, CNN will probably sweat Jersey Shore next before MTV.com, so I guess the status quo is sadly balanced.
What the fuck kind of image do they think Kim Kardashian has? Does this word image mean what they think it does? A reasonably attractive woman whose only job skill appears to be frontloading people only marginally as famous as she is. Don't get me wrong, the marketing behind her willingness to get half heartedly railed in a badly shot celebuporn has been genius, and she has cashed in thusly. Outstanding. You have created the anti-porn star. Instead of standard practice, she's the one getting shoved down our throats.
And yes, I said reasonably attractive. She is decent eye candy, I'll grant you that, but men aren't crashing ships into the jagged shore over her autotuned siren song. Jodie Foster could be considered a reasonably attractive woman, and some guy shot the President to impress her. To the best of my knowledge, no one has ever even been bitchslapped over Kim Kardashian.
And how do you suppose a marriage that lasted roughly as long as the Charlie's Angels remake is possibly going to hurt this image? She doesn't even have enough of an image for Triumph to poop on.
