Pay close attention, aspiring socialites: Khloe Kardashian is teaching a class on how to become rich and famous by not doing anything at all.
First, get married to someone else famous, even if you've only known him for a month.
Second, have the marriage filmed for your upcoming reality show.
Third, sell the wedding pics to a tabloid.
Fourth, draw attention to a celebrity gossip report, refute it and create new headlines by... doing nothing at all. Which was the initial goal, as outlined above.
Khloe practiced the art of the last point earlier today: apparently, Star magazine published a story that said her and Lamar Odom had split because he refused to give her a massage. Was anyone aware of this before Khloe pointed it out?
Would anyone take it seriously? Of course not.
But Khloe took to her blog today and shot down the report, thereby milking attention for it. She wrote:
"I seriously died when I read that! LOL. Star is known for doing evil, fake and RIDICULOUS stories about my family... [it is] becoming the Enquirer. Next thing you know they'll be saying that Kourtney is giving birth to a cat! LOL. All of their stories are absurd, but at least we get a good laugh from their lies."
Would anyone out there be surprised if Khloe's people planted this story, just to give her the platform to deny it? Neither would we.
