Apparently, there’s a huge market of people who actually like the Kardashians and don’t think that they’re a bunch of insufferable, awful people who have monetized their own self-absorption and misanthropy for the sake of a lazy dollar. Naturally, this sort of fandom can only end in disappointment once they realize they’re idolizing someone who, at best, couldn’t fill a shot glass with talent if it was already half full. Over the weekend, Kourtney Kardashian organized a meet-and-greet with fans, only to spring a $150 admission fee on them because … well, they’re Kardashians. It’d be more surprising if they didn’t pull this kind of crap. In Touch reports …
Guests, who lined up as early as 11am, were told beforehand that they would be able to purchase items from the store and have Kourtney sign them. But when they arrived they were handed a slip of pink paper informing them they would have to pay an additional $150 if they wanted to meet the famous Kardashian. “Don’t they have enough money?” Complained one irate fan. “Why would I pay $450 for my twin 8-year olds and myself meet her and get a picture? I called yesterday and asked and they said I didn’t HAVE to buy that package buy now I drove down here, paid for gas and told my babies they could see her and it’s changed. I’m not a fan anymore.”
Another fan who did cough up the extra cash was disappointed: “They rushed us in and out, I wouldn’t EVER pay for just an autograph and a picture with that trash again. I just wish we had more time to see her.”
Wait wait wait. Hold the gawddamn phone. Did you not see this one coming? Did you not expect a bunch of famewhores to famewhore you right in the wallet when you least expected it? Oh, you poor dumb a-holes. I almost feel bad for you, but then again, you’re the reason people like Kourtney Kardashian turn a profit, so you really only have yourselves to blame. Sorry ’bout it.
