Celebrity of the Year Finalist #4: The Kardashian Klan!

by at . Comments

As 2010 draws closer, The Hollywood Gossip staff looks back on the year that was, naming finalists for our prestigious, 3rd Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

These stars have given us their best, their worst, their off-the-wall antics and, in the case of today's selektion, their kontrived, kombative, k-based reality show.

It's time for THG to pay tribute to this greatness.

Last week, the countdown honored a pair of unique, talented singers in Adam Lambert and Lady Gaga. Now, it's on to Celebrity of the Year Finalist #4:  The Kardashian Klan!

Last year, Kim Karashian earned the top ranking in this poll. What changed since then? Not much on Kim's (plump) end. The socialite continues to make headlines for no reason whatsoever, simply changing her hair color multiple times and earning featured articles in magazines as a result.

Seriously, she better give her publicist a huge Christmas bonus.

But sisters Khloe and Kourtney have seriously upped their PR-generating games. The former married a rich dude she knew for a month; while the latter took it a step farther and knocked herself up just to give websites a reason to write about her.

Nauseating and appalling? Definitey. Creative and dedicated? Very much so.

Four seasons into their scripted show, the Kardashians set a ratings record for their series premiere this month. Over four million people somehow care enough about this family to spend an hour of their lives watching its well-rehearsed exploits.

While Paris faded away years ago, and society grew tired of Speidi in 2009, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney persevered. None starred in a single movie, released a single album or even got railed in a single sex tape... yet here they are, atop the celebrity gossip world.

It says a lot about the family - and, sadly, about the state of the world.

First of all they may not have starred in a movie ( yet) cut an album(yet)but, maybe it wasn't a sex tape but kim did make some bad choices and there were some nude pictures of her that were in the wrong hands and did get out. As for Kourtney knocking herself up? I'd like to see somebody knock there self up? Actually she got knocked up the night she gave in and spread her legs for that arrogant, cocky, ass wipe of a boyfriend she should have stayed broke up from an wasn't responsible enough to use protection. As for Klohe marring a rich dude, hello, has anyone noticed they are rich to begin with??? Their dad defended O.J. for goodness sake. Look at Anna Nicole Smith, no records, movies or films either. People are just star struck!
