As a die-hard Keeping Up ... fan I continue to desperately cling to the hope that the family's reality show is actually "real." But these Kardashian sisters are making it really difficult for me to lie to myself hang on. (And don't even get me started on Kris Jenner.)
Khloe Kardashian's latest Twitter tirade -- directed at, who else but her nemesis, Scott Disick -- just seems so ... well ... scripted!
The Kardashian sisters -- Kim, in particular -- owe much of their success to relentless self-promotion on Twitter. But usually they're a little more off the cuff about it than Khloe proved to be early Monday morning when she tweeted the following Disick-hating rants:
Im there 4 Kourt by not letting scott continue 2 hurt her. Tough love it is. Im not going to 4give some1 6 times ...
Peps r so quick 2 say im mean 2 Kourt. Actually I love her but I want 2 protect her. Scott has been not good ... 2 her so I need 2 c a REAL change before I feel comfortable letting Mase and Kourt around him.
For one thing, her tweets appeared mere hours after the Season 5 premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Coincidence? Or all part of the Kardashians' master plan to self-promote the heck out of their new show?
Also, the Khloe-Disick feud seems to be the only bit of action in store for this season (unless, of course, you think Kim crying over a wine-stained pillow is action). Could it be that Khloe is playing up her alleged hatred for him in an effort to tease viewers into watching an otherwise boring season?
I suppose it's absurd to debate the realness of a show in which Kris Jenner is Executive Producer. And, yet, I cling to my fantasy because I want to believe that nice, happy (albeit self-involved, frivolous, and diva-ish) families like the Kardashians really do exist in the real world. So why is Khloe trying to burst my bubble?
Do you think the Kardashians' shows are real or scripted? (And how much of an idiot do you think I am for even asking the question?)
