I have a trainwreck fascination with this family. It's like I hate them because they are so tacky, nouveau riche and haven't done anything to warrant their fame. But their show...is weirdly watchable.

I got drawn in a few months back after Kim got married. I had heard of her/the family before then but never had paid attention. Catching re-runs on E!, I'm like "why are these people considered important? They are clearly social climbers in all the most obvious ways and emphasize the worst about Hollywood." But I can't stop watching!

I don't really like them, but on a scientific and psychological level, they make for interesting viewing. All that passive-agressiveness! The bitchiness! The Mommy Issues! The Drama Queen! The family hierarchy (poor Bruce! Always on the bottom if he's even remembered at all). I thought my family was nuts (and it is) but they are....on a completely other level. I've come to the conclusion that the shameless famewhoring is what keeps the family grounded. If they didn't have that, they would have to face their issues...and BOOM! It would all collapse. I mean, I'm sure they love each other, but MAN, they are competitive and ball-breakers/cunt-breakers. The famewhoring keeps their dyfunctionalism at bay even as it brings it up (although I'm sure a ton of it is pandering for the cameras).

Diamonds in a flower bouquet. Well....Okay! Thank goodness she went for the more elegant bouquet.

I'm already wondering on how soon the marriages will end. Kim has an advantage: she's been married once, but it lasted for 4 years. So, I think she would try to make her current marriage work. Khloe's "My family's meeting my fiancee 3 days before I marry!" and that whole crazy rush to get married after only being with a guy for a MONTH! I bet that will end as soon as the Kardashians lose their E! contract. And her whining over everybody not being initially supportive about it. Gosh, I wonder why! Kim and Kris handled their engagement and courtship much, much better.

I can't get over how noisy they are! Everybody yells all the time. Ugh.

Stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow. I'm sure my eyes will drop from head at what passes for elegance and sophistication at Kim's wedding. (I make fun of dyfunct royals for their dowdy fashion sense on their wedding day. Of course, I'm going to make fun of Kim too!)
