Edie Falco: Who the HELL is Kim Kardashian?!

by at . Comments

Wait, there's someone who doesn't know who Kim Kardashian is? Maybe Edie Falco was just making a point, in which case, it worked.

In an interview with New York Magazine, the award-winning Sopranos and Nurse Jackie star discusses the "frightening" takeover of reality TV.

"Like, forgive me, I don't know if you're friends with her - but who the hell is Kim Kardashian?" she asks. "Like, who are these people and why are they famous?"

"Why are they advertising things and being asked their opinions about things?"

"I just don't understand what these people did to be in a position of having everyone always ask their opinions about stuff," the actress adds.

It is a fair point she raises.

As we saw yesterday with Khloe Kardashian's nip slip, these are individuals that do ridiculous things for attention, then respond to whatever anyone else says about them in order to garner even more attention.

It's a vicious/pathetic/genius cycle. Cue Kim's response to Edie in 5 ... 4 ...

who the hell is Edie Falco?


My gosh Edie Falco looks fantastic with her hair styled that way.


Edie is probably shocked that this no talent ass clown is famous for a sex tape and hanging around Paris H. to get her start. I loved Edie in The Sopranos and she has more talent in her little pinky than Kim.


Justine, I hardly doubt that an older, wiser woman is "jealous" of a young woman who is only famous for being on a reality show. Of course, she knows who she is she was being sarcastic. Trying to make a point. I am also sure that she IS proud of herself. She earned her t.v. money by doing regular acting jobs. I am on her side. The fact that some t.v. show creator put this family in the limelight and then the media stuffs them down our throats and presents them as this awesome ideal of a family/people is revolting.


Reality is so big because it's making certain people very very rich. The creators of these shows are all about making money. They don't care about morals, who they hurt, who they affect etc. It's the almighty dollar they are concerned about and that is sad.


Edie Falco is better off if she DOESN'T know who Kim Kardashian is. Who really cares what this person has to say? Not me. Waste of time.


I think she's just jealous of her... She's a smart woman of course she must know why Kim is famous. There are two BIG reasons. Get over it and be proud of what YOU've got!


who is she? uuhm a ho a kingsize ho


Getting kind of tired of people acting naive as to why reality stars are famous. Obviously, Kim is famous because she is extremely pleasant to look at (unlike Eddie Falco). Reality television has been around quite some time now so it's kind of silly to act like you don't know who some of these people are. John Walsh is famous for "America's Most Wanted" and that is a reality show. Alex Trebec is famous for reading questions to contestants. The point that I am making is that you don't have to have a degree or an Oscar to be famous you just need to be famous.
