THE TRAIN WRECK THAT IS KIM KARDASHIAN

by Matthew Sherley on February 26, 2014

fav7Apparently, Kim Kardashian didn’t want Kanye West to see the post-pregnancy stretch marks on her breasts. Or maybe it wasn’t him she was worried about. Maybe she has plans to show everyone else her boobs since Kanye presumably gets to see all the “other” stretch marks. Either way, the reality TV star is back in the news.  Reality?  Who “really” lives like that.

After recently being in the news complaining about the media’s obsession with the size of her backside, I guess Ms. K didn’t want any negative coverage about the appearance of her front side. Coverage. Now there’s a concept. It seems to me that the best way to ensure getting a fair shake from the media (or would that be a jiggle?) when it comes to striae on the skin of your bosom, is to keep the girls covered. But that’s just me.

Her willingness to be more than a little intimate in front of the camera is well documented. Eschewing modesty once again, she opted for laser removal of the offending stretch marks. On television. I guess any coverage is better than no coverage. Or do I have it backwards in her case?

So what would cause an attractive, affluent young woman to televise her laser procedure to remove stretch marks from her breasts? Two things. First, her insatiable need for attention. Second, our apparent unending willingness to give her that attention. Frankly, I’m not sure which of the two is more ludicrous. We are like the rubbernecking onlookers gathered at the scene of an accident where two locomotives have collided head-on. We know it is bad, but we can’t stop staring at the wreckage. When it comes to Keeping Up With the Kardashians, we just can’t seem to pull the trigger on our own laser removal devices, our TV remotes, to stop the madness.

Such is the train wreck that is Kim Kardashian.
