The Kardashians are getting way too predictable.
Earlier today, we posted a pair of tabloid covers that called out the relationships of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney. We said the stories were likely planted by their publicists, so the siblings could respond later, garner sympathy from their fans and remain a major part of the entertainment news cycle.
It only took a few hours for the sisters to prove us right. Point, THG!
First, Khloe took to her blog and wrote:
"My sisters and I had a great laugh this morning. Star and InTouch decided to attack our relationships. Apparently I'm heading for divorce, Kim was dumped and Kourt was duped... Wow, sad week for us Kardashian sisters, and how coincidental that this all happened at the same time!"
This is how the Kardashians roll: They greenlight negative stories to tabloids, whine about them to the press, boost the sales of said tabloids, make new headlines for themselves... and then do it all again a month later.
Kim then chimed in from her blog:
"OMG! Have you guys seen the front pages of In Touch and Star today!? Do NOT Trust the Media!!!!!!"
In closing, Kourtney, brought this perfect storm of publicity for the family home:
"Week after week Scott and I have been on the cover of In Touch with stories that make us laugh.... We have been blessed with the most amazing, beautiful baby boy and couldn't be happier. And saying that Scotts initials are STD and that he had a dogtag because he was proud of it... his initials are SMD, but nice story, idiots."
On one hand, you have to be digusted that so many people still buy into the Kardashian myth (i.e. that there's an ounce of unscripted drama to anything they do and say).
On the other hand, you really need to be in awe of the way they've taken advantage of a culture that's so obsessed with people whose biggest accomplishment to date is to focus the camera while Ray J does his thing.
