Is it possible that America is finally becoming disenchanted with the saga of the Kardashian family?
Ratings for their TV Show Keeping up with the Kardashians have fallen to all-time lows. A book by Bruce – oops– Caitlyn – Jenner, The Secrets of My Life has had slow sales.
America has lived with the Kardashian family name since the days of the O.J. Simpson trial where one of his lead lawyers was Robert Kardashian.
The latest generation has become famous for doing nothing except generating press. They get robbed in Paris, and it’s front page news. One of them gets a new boyfriend, and the press treats it as a major news event. The Dad decides to become a woman and gets his/her own TV show.
The Telegraph had this take on the Kardashian’s:
These violently contradictory views are played out regularly by millions, creating a dystopian hall of mirrors that might lead even the most rational observer to conclude the Kardashians actually matter. They don’t. True there’s something depressing about the creeping Kardashianisation of daily life. The entire extended family comes across as vapid narcissists.
Perhaps these are signs that America may be ready to move on from obsessing over the size of Kim’s posterior, or the latest boyfriend that appears by Kylie’s side. Or, maybe not and we’re doomed to living with another generation of the Kardashians/Jenner franchise.
