WTF #2: Keeping Up With the Kardashians (UPDATE)

I’m still not sure who green-lighted this series, but the other night I was flipping through the channels and found this gem of a show on E! Keeping Up With the Kardashians follows the lives antics of one mildly famous young twenty-something and her fame-grubbing family members. Maybe its the fact that the mom married former Olympic Gold Medalist Bruce Jenner, but nobody really quite knows why main star Kim Kardashian and her family deserve their own reality series. Ok, so Kim made a sex tape (that nobody cared nor knew about), is dating Reggie Bush, and her father was a lawyer in the OJ Simpson trial. Still, there’s no reason why any of these factors should allow this show to continue on TV, especially when E! is pitching the same reality garbage over and over again. I got even more outraged when there was a special episode devoted to bonus footage. Like I didn’t get enough mindless action watching the regular series, now they’re telling me there’s even MORE crappy television about the same idiotic people. It actually makes shows like this more appealing to watch.

Plus the other two daughters are named “Kourtney” and “Khloe”. Good grief!

UPDATE 6/10: According to Gawker via The Hollywood Reporter, Kardashian step-sibling and douchebag socialite Brody Jenner (also known as the on-again off-again boyfriend plaything of one of “The Hills” stars) will be getting his own reality series on MTV entitled “Bromance”. Awesome, because we all know how incredibly successful “Princes of Malibu” was (if you can even remember that torrid show, bonus points). *BARF*

    I was so happy that MTV thought to make such a bromantic show, it brought a little tear to my eye…
