WTF Wednesday: The Kardashians, Sister Writers


In yet another sign of the impending apocalypse, the Kardashian sisters (best known for their sex tapes and vacant stares) are publishing a book.

According to USMagazine.com:

Kardashian Konfidential will include relationship advice and candids photos from reality TV's favorite trio. "It's a little bit more of an in-depth look into our lives, even though people think that they've probably seen everything," Kim, 29, said of the book, to be released Nov. 23.




Yeah, that's right, they intentionally misspelled confidential in the title. Suck on that Kirkus.

I think Laura said it best via Skype last night:


Relationship advice from the Kardashians? Awesome. One dates a complete D-bag, one got married to an NBA player after dating him for a week and one is best known for her bodacious booty and a sex tape. Also Angelina Jolie looks like she's going to die lately. Nast.

Yeah, the Angelina commentary is completely unrelated, but I was highly entertained with the term "nast" so I had to include it. I mean, does it really take that much effort to type the "y"? Perhaps it was just a typo? Either way it's funny.

Anyway, back to the Kardashian sisters my big question for all of you is what's the over/under on them having a young adult series? I give it about 6 months to 1 year before we see the inevitable announcement on Publisher's Marketplace.



July 6, 2011
Children's:
Young Adult
Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian's YA series KRAZY 4 U, in which three sisters open up a trendy boutique, sleep around and take Hollywood by storm without an ounce of discernible talent, to Lucifer Beelzebub at Hades Bound Publishing, for publication beginning in Summer 2012, by Kris Jenner at Pimp My Daughters Inc. (World).




Ok, your turn. What's got you screaming "WTF!?!?" on this lovely Wednesday?

Warning labels on children's medicine. "Do not operate machinery or drive while taking this medicine." Really? My three year old will be devastated!

salarsenッ said...

"Nast", ((hugs)). Hah. YA series, wow...scary. Love your blurb, though.

"to Lucifer Beelzebub at Hades Bound Publishing"

Bethany Elizabeth said...

90,000 documents of highly secret information being leaked onto the internet by a soldier in military intelligence. That sort of caused 'wtf' to appear on my face. Apparently, however, none of it is 'new information'. o.0

Maggie said...

That's terrific. Is there anything that these girls aren't already doing now? Sure, the show is entertaining, if only for the fact that their lives are so dramatized.

Eh. Sometimes it upsets me that every celebrity has to write some kind of book. And then they go on to be NYT Bestsellers because of their fanbase. I guess that's okay, but I wish it wasn't quite so easy for them. Sigh.

(Ahem. That was quite the rant, no?)

What left me saying WTF was the dang bird that pooed on my car yesterday. About five seconds after I finished washing it. It was, in fact, quite nast.

Simon C. Larter said...

I dunno. I find Kim rather endearing. Khloe looks mannish, and Kourtney's hairstyle is odd, but Kim's foxy. I've yet to see the show or hear her say anything, and, quite frankly, hope to avoid both of those experiences at all costs. I'd rather not sully my pretteh image of her. Yes.

In WTF Wednesday news, I'm applauding your generosity in giving away a metric crap-tonne of query critiques. I was just thinking that the solution for your epic lack of time to wander round the blogosphere commenty-commenting merrily away would be to take on a project like critiquing a busload of queries. I'm amazed that you came to the same conclusion! Great minds, and all that. (Srsly, though, ladies, you're lovely and ever-so generous. I'll stop the parenthetical and get back to the WTF now.)

FINALLY, WTF is with this heatwave? WTF is with my daughter not sleeping through the night yet? WTF is with RPatz and his meltdown? (No, really, what IS with that? I haven't heard anything other than that he had one.) WTF is with moldy cheese? WTF is so good about Twizzlers? WTF is with these damnable internet acronyms? WTF is with China's policies vis-a-vis Taiwan? WTF is with Rush Limbaugh? WTF is with Alec Baldwin's physique? WTF is with cutoff jeans? WTF is with my going on too long in your comments section? JUST WTF ALL OVER THE PLACE!

Yes. That. Hi. *waves*

Matthew Rush said...

Okay, Simon is crazy, but of course one of the coolest guys I know. All the cool people are a little crazy anyway.

Anyway that girl in the middle looks really scary. Kind of like Frankenstein with extensions. How long do you think it will be before Seth Grahame-Smith writes Kardashian Konfidential and Frankenstein? I'm not joking. I'd read it.

Great Publisher's Marketplace parody BTW ladies. Classic.

rae said...

Nast is an insanely useful noun:

"That fridge is full of nast."

"Your face looks like nast today."

Etc...

Jill Kemerer said...

Relationship advice. Thanks, but no thanks, K-girls, I'll pass.

Meredith said...

Haha, worst relationship experts ever! That book is going to be hilarious.

Donna Gambale said...

That's well worth a WTF. And it was worthwhile to read the comments just for Simon's.

Sara B. Larson said...

Seriously?? I couldn't agree more with your thoughts on a Kardashian book. Perfect WTF. That's about all you can say to it...

Liz said...

Gads! This is almost as bad as when I heard Tyra Banks had signed a deal for a trio of fantasy books about models. WTF!

Jemi Fraser said...

Some of these celebrities terrify me. I wouldn't wish that kind of lifestyle and brainpower on my worst enemy. They don't have a chance at normal - so sad.

storyqueen said...

hahahahaha! Lucifer Beelzebub! You are too funny.

However, I think the books would be nast.

Shelley

ver nast.

Natalie said...

That PM announcement is seriously the funniest thing I've seen all week. Thanks for the laugh. :)

Tere Kirkland said...

Summer 2012? Oh, come on, you don't think someone could ghost write a book for them in two months so the publisher could push it out by Spring 2011?

It's not like it has to be good, or proofed, or make sense or anything.

Kerri C at CK Farm said...

It has been such a WTF day I feel like saying it to everyone I see. Um maybe not a good idea. I should stay home today.

Krispy said...

I wonder if "nast" will catch on now that you've put it out there in the world or will it go the way of the ill-fated "fetch" of Mean Girls?

Every time I hear about these celeb books, I sort of just sigh and roll my eyes.

Mia said...

OMG. I'll be honest, all three of those girls scare me SILLY. Definitely WTF.

My WTF includes the following:

- RPATZ HAD A BREAKDOWN AND NOBODY TOLD ME?! *looks at Simon* (WHERE WAS I WHEN THAT HAPPENED?)

- Where did all my shoes go?

- How come I never acheive what I set out to? *shakes fist at to do list*

- What's with my poor use of the English language in real life now? Why do I keep saying TOTES and OBVS and then writing hashtags to people?

- And also the most WTF thing that happened to me recently was when I found an email in my inbox telling me (a student and currently unemployed) that a Headteacher was sorry to see me leave my Teaching position and wished me all the luck in my new one that I start next week. Um...

Jill Wheeler said...

Off to google recent pictures of Angelina Jolie.

Nast!

Carolyn V. said...

No way. Is there anything else to say?

Sarah said...

Hahaha. That PM announcement is pure gold. Well played, you guys. Well played.

Tahereh said...

OMG I HAD TO READ THAT PM ANNOUNCEMENT THREE TIMES before i realized it was a joke.

oh god. that it took me so long to doubt its authenticity is kind of scary.

Elana Johnson said...

That is the best PM announcement I've ever seen in my life!! My WTF?? today is really bugging the crap out of me, but you know. One of those things.

Icy Roses said...

Okay, don't judge me, but Keeping Up With the Kardashians/Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami are my go-to trashy TV shows. It's so entertaining. I can't completely call them stupid because on some level they made themselves popular while having no discernable talent whatsoever. That's gotta take a little bit of pimping savvy, no?

You're judging me, I can feel it from across the Internet. That's okay. I judge me too.

Little Ms J said...

I'm so glad someone finally noticed Angelina is on death's door! What is up with her? She's emaciated and looks horrible.

Laura, I think it is time for a poem.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

WTF is up with Simon leaving a novella in your comment section filled with WTFs?

P.S. If only all PM announcements were so deliciously trashy....

Kelly said...

I am proud to say I've never watched any Kardashian series. But I've laughed at many clips of them on The Soup!

Love the PM announcement!

Holli True said...

Ok, so it's not Wednesday, it's Sunday. But I still have a WTF! :) WTF sunburns. I loathe you. I apply 30 SPF repeatedly and the result is a lovely, scathing sunburn. Nice. Real nice.

PS: Let's be real. The Special K Sisters aren't going to pen anything. They're going to hire someone to do it for them, like most famous people. They can barely structure a proper verbal sentence, let alone write one. Their book *should* be: "A Girl's Guide to Becoming Famous (for no reason at all)". ;)
