Color Commentary

Thanks to a post over at TBogg’s, I somehow got sucked into a discussion that involved Kardashians, and somehow in the course of googling, turned up this awesome video of three grandmas watching, and commenting on, the Kim Kardashian sex tape.  It’s pretty fucking hilarious, as you’ll see:

I was blissfully unaware of Kardashians up until a couple of years ago; after seeing them splashed on the covers of every trash celebrity magazine at the salon every time I went in, I finally asked, “who are the Kardashians and why does anyone care?”  The girl who did my hair, Nula, who hails from Queens, said, “Oh, they’re just a bunch of hoors.”  I thought that was funny as hell, especially when about a year later, Kathy Griffin, commenting on our brain dead media’s coverage of Kim Kardashian’s wedding (“The Kardashians are our version of royalty“), said “I think they’re more like our version of a family of dirty whores.”  On a later Griffin special, she described having to do some event with the Kardashian mom after having described them as “a family of dirty whores,” which just made it funnier.

Of course, having remained blissfully unaware of the Kardashians for so long, I didn’t know that the whole dirty whore thing wasn’t just hyperbole for the sake of humor, because I didn’t know that their whole claim to “fame,” such as it is, spun out of Kim Kardashian making a sex tape with a C-list rapper, which then somehow got “leaked” (my money is on Kim herself or her mother as the leaker).  So, yes, dirty whore it is. 

I’ve never seen the tape itself, of course, which probably makes the grandmas’ blow-by-blow even better.

There are a lot of these three grandma videos – I’ll be posting more.

    I’m not sure many of us (Even celebrity-addled Hollywood types like me.) were aware of them more than three yrs. ago.

    Those grandmothers may not be what they seem ‘though.

    They are ADORABLE! Not the Kardashians, no. The other ones. Better to watch than the Pepper Pots on Monty Python, if that’s possible.

    It’s kinda funny how a girl who was so wealthy to begin with ended up doing porn.

      But money wasn’t enough, B^4!!! She had to have ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION!!!! Sweet, sweet ATTENTION! Listen, it’s not like I don’t relate. It’s just that I’m not willing to pork on camera for it. Unless by “pork” you mean eat country-style ribs. Which I will also do off-camera. For free.

    I am grateful that my grandmas all passed before the internet.

      Well, that’s certainly a different perspective, albeit one that I don’t agree with, either because I’m “old-fashioned” or perhaps just a snob. FWIW, I’d say there’s a vast gulf of difference between using one’s sexual appeal to gain cultural capital and being a porno actress, and the word “whore” has for quite some time meant the trading of virtue – not only sexual virtue, but virtue of other kinds – for money. Thus we have whores in all walks of life – media, political, etc. While the whole notion of “sexual virtue” might itself be a bit old-fashioned in this day and age, I think most would agree that being penetrated on-camera violates whatever may remain of the concept.

      Interestingly, you’ve more or less admitted that the woman is a whore with the inclusion of the term “cultural capital” – in your comment, you’ve already submitted that the sex-on-tape was a ploy for gains having nothing to do with love or intimacy with another person. Last, but certainly not least, I think it’s fairly well-established that millions and millions, and probably billions, of women not only enjoy sex but will admit to same – all without filming themselves engaging in the act and then releasing the tape to the world in order to gain money and notoriety.
