Obsession with The Kardashians: Kim Kardashian Video and Kardashians Video. Khloe, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian phenomenon explored on US Celebrity Blog.

The three Kardashian sisters: Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney have become an obsession for many. They have a successful reality TV show, grace the covers of magazines, are treated as the cream of society, set trends (and undoubtedly, some standards as well) plus run a business empire worth millions. What’s behind our obsession with the Kardashians? What makes them so fascinating?………. Take a look at the Kardashians videos below and let’s draw conclusions once you’ve got your “dose” of the Kardashians.

Kardashians Video: Chelsea Lately: The Kardashians

So, let’s draw some conclusions about the obsession with Kardashians. What’s so extra-ordinary about the Kardashian sisters? Are they pretty? Yes. Sexy? Definitely. Well-connected? Absolutely. But what are we fascinated by? It obviously can’t be their intellect, talent, or work.  (Incidentally, I researched definitions of celebrity well, most of them cite  talent or accomplishment as a prerequisite for celebrity or fame.)
When it comes to the Kardashians, I’m left amazed at their business acumen, it must have taken a brilliant mind (or brilliant minds) to turn one sexcapade into a claim to fame and a multimillion dollar enterprise. (Pretty much the Paris Hilton method.)

Kim Kardashian got flour-bombed; Kim to support charity for women, more.

Kim Kardashian helps women improve their lives

Except of Kim Kardashian’s brief marriage on which we didn’t comment (after all, not only celebrities mess up their personal lives!) we kept up with some of the turbulent events in the Kardashians’ lives.

We’re not fans of the family or their reality show. But even we couldn’t help but notice that the shrewd sisters are not only spectacularly successful in business but gradually becoming – if not respectable – than likeable!
It seems that they begun noticing the world around them, took interest and – lo and behold – action to make things better!

Khloe Kardashian hosted a toy drive for the Children’s Hospital of Dallas last year. Kim Kardashian was pitching in for Los Angeles Mission and other causes in the past. This time Kim pledged her support for Dress for Success Worldwide. (To quote from Dress for Success Website: “The mission of Dress for Success is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.”) She’s even planning to donate some of the profits from the sales of fragrance (True Reflection) to the charity.

We may not admire careers built on a flash in the pan, but we acknowledge charitable affords: way to go Kardashian sisters!
Perhaps the troubled siblings are beginning to grow up. If their hearts match their exteriors we may all become fans, eventually.

Kim Kardashian Flour-Bombed

We’ve heard it; we’ve seen it: a member of the public, allegedly offended by Kim wearing real fur, “attacked” her with a bag of flour ruining Kim’s perfect hair and makeup, not to mention her outfit. Kim didn’t press charges; dusted herself off – literally! – and completed the event.

Altogether, not a world-shattering event; just a bit of disorderly conduct, responded to in a surprisingly classy way by Kim. The larger questions behind the otherwise minor incident are:
1/ the issue of personal safety of celebrities
2/ the definition of a socially-acceptable, civil behavior

As for Kim Kardashian’s security; it failed to protect her from a relatively harmless attack. (It would have failed also if the attack wasn’t harmless.)
As for the alleged animal rights’ activist – and let’s be clear: I don’t condone wearing animal skin as a garment – it seems to be a case of a confused fame-seeker. A young woman who decided to snatch some attention for herself at a public event, at the expense of another.

I have expressed my feelings about the Kardashians on US Celebrity Blog in the past and I’m not a fan. Still, in this case I find Kim’s conduct praiseworthy. I also believe that the behavior of the thrill-seeker should be punished, at the very least by a citation. Having differing convictions doesn’t justify ANY form of physical assault with flour or otherwise. The flour-bombing was inappropriate, there are safer, smarter and more effective venues for expressing one’s views.
