The Naked Truth About Getting Naked

So, a few weeks ago, my nephew sent me a link to the following webpage, “W Magazine Replies to Kim Kardashian’s Tears Over ‘Porn’-y Nude Pics.”

Let me start out by saying that I find anything Kardashian disgusting and try to avoid reading about Kim or the rest of the litter.  I still remember their father, Robert, who was on “inactive” status as an attorney at the time of the OJ Simpson murder investigation but changed to “active” status after he spoke with OJ.  Actually, he hadn’t practiced law for about 20 years at the time of the Simpson/Goldman murders.  My guess is that he had to protect whatever OJ told him but actually had to be acting as OJ’s “attorney” to assert the “attorney-client privilege.”  I still remember the look of absolute disbelief on Kardashian’s face when the jury came back and found OJ “not guilty.”   But I digress – it’s okay; I’m old.

I’ve never seen an episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami,” or “Kourtney and Kim Take New York;” I’ve never seen an episode of Dancing with the Stars when Kim was a contestant, and I certainly don’t intend to read “Kardashian Konfidential.”  In fact, it’s even disturbing that Wikipedia describes Kim as “an American celebutante, socialite, television personality, producer, actress, and model, rather than as a “daughter-of-attorney-who-became-famous-for-doing-absolutely-nothing-except-make-a-pornographic-home-video-with-her- then-boyfriend-which-unsurprisingly-got-uploaded-to-the- internet.”

Well, she’s now bellyaching about the photos taken of her for W Magazine’s Art Issue.  Apparently, on a recent episode of “Kourney & Kim Take New York,” she “burst into tears” over her naked pictorial spread in W magazine.  Claiming she was misled, she moaned that the pictures were “full-on porn.”  She complained that “the whole concept was sold to me that nothing would be seen.”

Can you believe this?  Kim, think about it.  There wasn’t a gun pointed at your head.  You took off your clothes.  Someone pointed a camera at you.  Someone took pictures of you.  They then put those pictures in a magazine and now you don’t like it.  There were no hidden cameras.  You didn’t have any clothes on.  What’s your problem?

A quick check on the internet will result in hundreds of photos of Kim Kardashian with very little clothing on.  Is she trying to convince the public she didn’t see proofs of the “W” photos or didn’t have final say in their publication?  Give me a break.

But it gets even better.  She had already done a nude photo spread for Playboy and apparently didn’t like those pictures either and tried to block their publication.  A little advice to Kim:  If you don’t like it, keep your clothes on and stop crying.

She reminds me of the rest of these idiots who send nude

photos of themselves over the internet.  Take for example, the case of George Bronk, 23.  He got e-mail addresses of women on Facebook, hacked into the accounts of dozens of women, scanned their “sent” folders for nude and seminude photos and videos and forwarded them to all of the women’s contacts.  He then coerced one of these numbnuts to send him more explicit photos by threatening to distribute the photos he already had.

Obviously, what this guy did was wrong.  But explain to me how stupid someone has to be to send nude photos of themselves over the internet.

And what about sexting?  If you’re going to do this with your phone, expect the whole world to know about it.  There’s nothing private anymore and there are losers somewhere in their mother’s basements waiting to hack into anything.

So, whether you’re sexting, sending photos by email, putting them on your FB page, whatever, once they’re out there, they’re out there.  Women, men, kids, wise up.  In today’s tech world, no one should have the expectation of privacy.

I don’t get it, but if you do, God bless you.

    Somebody essentially assist to make significantly posts I might state. That is the very first time I frequented your web page and up to now? I surprised with the analysis you made to make this actual put up extraordinary. Magnificent task!

    And to think you would like to publish a book but can’t find a publisher but the Kardashian’s can. What’s wrong with this picture?

  • Roger Ward

    Famous? Somewhat …. Talented? Not at all.

    I remember their father Robert Kardashian coming out of O.J.’s house carrying a suitcase that no one ever found out what it contained; but everyone wondered what oj did with his bloody clothes. As far as his daughters go; they sound like airheads.

    Leona, I agree with you that the Kardashian sisters have done little to actually earn the attention they’ve received. However when you live in a country where the overriding goal of some young people is to be famous simply to be famous, it’s not that surprising.

    Where you and I disagree is with regards to people taking photos of themselves in the nude. If a person wants to engage in sexting or any other risque behavior, I say the same thing you said: No one held a gun to their head (hopefully). You make a decision and you have to live with the consequences.

    Good one Leona. Things like this have been going on since the invention of the camera.
    Someone gets caught doing naughty pictures & then they profess to be a born again virgin, pure as fresh snow. Maybe Kim Kardashian should have claimed the pictures were photoshopped.
    Thanks for filling me in, I don’t watch the show, I find the Weather Channel to be more interesting.

    my all time favorite celeb is Kim Kardashian. I just like her style and her ass is more huge than jennifer lopez!

  • Ron

    This is why I refuse to watch celebrity television. It is just another example of the coarsening of our standards in this country. The only thing I disagree with is I think she would have been a celebrity whether or not she made a video that was posted on the internet.
