The Kim Kardashian Effect

Today’s announcement that Kim Kardashian will adorn the cover of the new beauty book ‘Face to Face’ authored by Scott Barnes, truly caught my attention. How does Ms. Kardashian continue to galvanize the attention of the media (yes, including yours truly) and the public alike?

I’ve decided the answer must be -The Kim Kardashian Effect....

…and of course the family reality show(s), are but (yes- pun intended) a few of the many ventures Kim Kardashian is involved with. Speaking of involved, the continual back-story (yes -pun intended again) of whom Ms. Kardashian is romantically linked with, is basically headline news. In other words……

The Kim Kardashian Effect

Has anyone ever monetized their assets (ok- last pun intended) at the level of Ms. Kardashian? Despite the anti-Kardashian sentiment that exists, Ms. Kardashian forges ahead. Do I like all things Kim Kardashian? Not really. In fact the only time I’ve seen a bit of her show is while in the gym. I guess a Kim K fan preceded my arrival.

Sure, living one’s personal life in front of cameras isn’t my idea of a cool drink-but (I know I promised-this is positively the last pun intended) it’s not my life. Underneath it all, Kim K seems to be a nice girl that’s figuring life out, doing the best she knows how. She likes nice things, enjoys travel and having fun, and is looking for love. Ummm….pretty much what every single woman wants. The difference, like it or not, is Ms. Kardashian has found a way to do it with panache and in front of the cameras. In other words....
