Celebrity of the Year Finalist #5: The Kardashian Klan!

by at . Comments

With 2010 drawing to a close, it is with much pride that THG unveils its 10 finalists for its prestigious, Fourth Annual Celebrity of the Year award.

These stars all gave us their best, their worst, their nude pics (sometimes) and their scandals (often). This month, THG honors that greatness.

After Charlie Sheen checked in at #6 with his disturbing list of drug-fueld antics and attacks, we present Celebrity of the Year finalist #5 ... All of the Kardashians!

Signing Books, Autographs

We can't choose just one sibling, after all. By having babies, constantly talking about their weight and placing their name on any product, Khloe, Kourtney and Kim all made headline after headline in 2010.

Heck, youngsters Kylie and Kendall Jenner even got in on the act.

Say what you will about this talentless, attention-starved family - and, Lord knows, THG often does! - but the success and the popularity of the Kardashians cannot be denied.

Kardashian Konfiential hit number-four on The New York Times Bestsellers' list in its first week of release; the sisters have close to 10 million Twitter followers; and, get this, Kris Jenner herself has 504,157 people reading her Tweets at last check.

In related news, there are 504,157 people on the planet that really need to get a life.

And therein lies the mystery and appeal of the Kardashians. They epitomize the celebrity gossip culture of the 2000s. Paris Hilton started it and then Speidi milked it like crazy for a few months.

But only Kim, Khloe and kompany have managed to remain major names - hosting Las Vegas parties, appearing on late-night talk shows, writing books, posing naked A LOT  - without actually accomplishing a single noteworthy item.

No Kardashian recorded an album, starred in a movie, headlined a non-reality show, went on tour or earned a single, respectable award in 2010. Yet major publications created articles out of mere blog posts made by these siblings. Kim earned over $6 million on her own in the last 12 months.

It's both depressing and astounding, and it's all enough to warrant the entertainment world's most shameless family a spot in our year-end countdown. Or, for one time only, we should say: kountdown.

To all the hillbillies, and people with no lives, Why do you watch and worship these Monsters?! It's all E news and Ryan Seacrest. He produces the show so every night on E news he has to promote his gravy train. I give them another year, and they will be like Paris, (DONE) You can over stay your welcome in Hollywood! And The Mom is the worst! She reminds me of the mom on Mean Girls who is always trying to stay young and be in all the drama. MR. CHRIS JENNER! Take care of your girlly HUSBAND! We know your the man and he's the bitch of the relationship. And Lamar! OH Where do I start? I know your GAY MAN! Cause who would marry that DUDE! Rob the brother on the DL. lol

Here's a challenge for you, THG, and consider it a request from us fans, a Christmas Present so to speak.
How about you ban all things Trashdashian?
You could be the first respectable website to say:
"No! We will not give you another inch of column space, and most certainly not as many inches as Kim seeks in purple headed warriors belonging to athletes!"
You're probably wondering what that glove on the floor is doing at your feet. Yes, I am talking to you, Mr/Miss THG, sitting there at your cubicle looking at my words.
It's not a glove.
It's a gauntlet.
And I just threw it.
Make a stand.
For ya fans.
