Are the Kardashians finished and over. Has their brand been hurt by the recent wedding and sudden divorce of Kim and Kris or will they continue to be relevant in 2012?

    I don't see anything wrong with them being popular/successful.

        Lol. Well I think that's a bit extreme.

        It's the people who are always criticizing and judging that gets on my nerves. But that's never going to change so oh well. I've only actually seen their show about 5 times.

            Thanks. That makes me feel much better. I have no idea who those people are. (Kardashians). I've heard the name before but I'll be damned if I know who they are or what they do. I was thinking I was the only one. It's good to know that there are others that don't either.

            Um....exactly what show are they in?

        The "controversy/attention/negativity/whatever" just makes them even more popular IMO

    Who are the "Kardashians," besides some people who the tabloids and sensational media love to ride?

    GT
    (p.s. I do realize they have many fans, and I'm not knocking that, but I truly don't know who they are or why their popularity rating would matter to anyone.)

    The media would hate to see the Kardashians leave the spotlight. It could cause a double-dip recession, at least in Hollywood.

    In an age where people are famous for being famous, the Kardashians will always be relevant to surface thinking people ( one of the fastest growing segments of America). They save you from having to think for yourself. Just live your life and dreams through a Kardashian. Wallah!

    They were NEVER relevant! If they vanished tomorrow, WHAT would be hurt!?

    "Relevant." Good word! The Kardashians embody relevance. They've contributed so much to humanity, whatever it is that they did.

    I don't think that the end is anywhere in sight unfortunately...

    From what I've heard, there's a Kardashian fan born every minute.

      They've never been relevant except to those who value shiny things - and don't worry about substance.

        I've never figured out why Paris Hilton or the Kardashians are famous in the first place. But then I've never watched soap operas and reality shows so I am really out of the loop.

    Ernie is right! Some people.....WAY TOO MANY people..... are like the very very young, like less than 7yrs, girls that have heard fairy tales. "When I grow up, I want ta be a PRINCESS!"!!!!! They see someone out there with something, and figure it is a RIGHT to have it!

    THAT is what is happening with all the times that people kill for those sneakers! Remember the event that happened last december with the deaths due to the release of those sneakers? Killed over Concords: The Internet Murder of Tyreek Amir Jacobs - Baltimore Sun well, the BOYS fancy the shoes as turning them into princesses, and they see it as a RIGHT! Denied that right, because of the high cost, they STEAL them. If necessary, they KILL!

    You can bet that people like the Kardashians will spread the same sort of thing. I know that their ilk HAS done it with people I have known. I have seen it happen on a smaller scale with clothing and accessories up to a few thousand dollars. You have to wonder when it will be even CARS up to millions. Sounds ridiculous, but only a few decades ago the several thousand dollars for clothes sounded ridiculous.

    BTW I only pay about $100 for shoes, and they tend to last for at least 10 years. I buy for FUNCTION. I don't even generally have a watch. My car is nice, but not a luxury car. When I graduated highschool, I figured what I needed to retire. I FINALLY have that much! ALAS, with inflation and all, I probably need ten times as much.

        I NEVER said it was smart! In fact MOST females, at least publically, outgrow it, if they ever felt that way. But to see "grown" MEN act like that, YIKES! It was NO mistake when I said they consider themselves princesses. BESIDES, even in the fairy tales, the prince takes care of it.
