My Love Hate Relationship with the Kardashians

Some sick twisted part of me cannot wait to tune into “Keeping up with the Kardashians” or any of their spin off shows, each week. I know I’m just allowing them to live a ridiculous lifestyle for doing absolutely nothing every time I watch, but I just can’t help myself.

I LOVE Kourtney Kardashian!

I love the fact that even though she has the large sum of cash she seems very down to earth. I LOVE the fact that she seems to be constantly educating herself on how to live a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, not only for herself, but for her children as well. And after last night’s episode, I LOVE most of all, the fact that she entertained a home birth for child number two, despite the fact that her sisters acted like treating birth naturally should have you sent off to a deserted island like a leper.

I LOVE Khloe Kardashian!

Despite the fact that her attitude towards childbirth irked the hell out me last night, she still supported her sister by attending the water birth with her. I LOVE her because she is very outspoken and a strong woman but does not put her husband last or put him down like the other Kardashian women do. I LOVE her because, out of the whole bunch, I think she is the only one that could function as a normal human being and still be happy if the pseudo fame and fortune was suddenly ripped away.

I HATE Kim Kardashian!

I know, I know, hate is such strong word. So maybe I just really loathe her. I loathe that no matter how hard I try to find something about her to like, she just seems like a big cry baby with an over inflated ego. I loathe the fact, that out of the whole crew, she seems to be the most materialistic. I loathe the fact that someone can make such a mockery of marriage in the public eye, when unfortunately, there are girls and women that look up to her as a role model.

The bottom line, my sick twisted mind, fueled by the generation of reality (I use that term loosely) television, just cannot get enough of these people. I think I need an intervention and a good book to get me away from the madness.
