Isn't That Convenient?


I almost felt like The Church Lady when I wrote that headline. Dana Carvey just channeled right through my body and came out the other end looking like Garth. Last night I noticed that Kourtney Kardashian had got pregnant. Interesting? Sure. Earth shattering? Nope. You would have thought the world had stopped spinning because so many blogs and tabloids wrote about it. She was on The Today Show this morning for goodness sake. She is the sister of someone who got famous for having sex with someone who was the brother of someone famous. Anyway, I wasn't going to bother writing about it. Then I saw when she was due.

Yes, when I saw that she was due in December I started using my fingers and toes and came to the conclusion that she is a little over five months pregnant. Interesting side note before I get to my main point of contention. She broke up with the baby's father in February. Umm, it must have been during the breakup sex that she got pregnant. But of course now that she is pregnant they couldn't be happier. Well, they could. I mean if she had her own reality show and didn't have to share it with her sisters. Any of them.

So, if she is due in December that means she is about five months pregnant or maybe six? Are we agreed on that? Do we also agree that most people tell their friends and family after three months? Four? Five? See where I am going here? Everyone knew except for the general public.

Now, I want you to take the time today to read all the tabloid reports of her pregnancy. Not the blogs, but the People and Us and OK! Magazines of the world. I bet they all have a quote that looks very similar to this one from US. "Kourtney's new reality show, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, premieres Sunday."

Wow, isn't that the most convenient thing in the world. How much do you want to bet that if they didn't have a show premiering on Sunday that they would have announced this several months ago? How much would you like to wager that she and the baby daddy break up for good by the time the baby is a year old or they get 40 episodes of a reality show under their belt? Isn't it good to know that people are not just exploiting their kids after they are born but now are willing to do it even before they are born? I can't wait until some reality star is willing to get pregnant as we watch their show. Go ahead and exploit them right from the moment of conception.

I can't explain why I like the Kardashians. I know it's against everything I stand for, and I am ashamed of it, but I still watch their show and am amused by their silly, petty, selfish antics.

At least Kris is getting the grandchild she's always wanted and they won't have to rent her monkeys anymore.

**raises hand to say I also inexplicably like the Kardashians**

Definitely marketed at the appropriate time, no doubt about that. I do love, however, that Kourtney has to share the "news" cycle with Kendra Wilkinson/Baskett stating she's having a boy. Many articles are lumping the two together, with Kendra getting top billing!

Interesting (and probably spot-on) take.

I'm due in December, and I just recently got to the point where there's no denying my pregnancy. I just figured she was in the same boat.

The BF looks like a mishmash of a Gotti brother and Casey Affleck.

enty, that's just the pr machine doing its job. don't hate for that. it was in all their best interests that the news be kept on the d/l until the days before the show premiers...you know how it works. i can't hate b/c the miami version won't last beyond however many eps they shot for this season...it's all they got. w/o kim they'll sink. it is what it is.

Also I could have sworn I have seen this chick DRINKING at some club within the 5 month time period.

Anonymous said...

Montana, these girls probably do so many drugs that she may not have even realized that she was pregnant until now.

I do not like the Cardassians. Er Kardashians. No I do not.

It's like the Truman Show. ANd how do the have 2 shows now. Ugh.

Yes Montana and DN - that's what I thought. Drinking AND staggering. Poor kid.

Caroline said...

Isn't that just precious, getting knocked up by the guy who has cheated on you...TWICE. Isn't he a keeper?

LOL@Caroline.

He is precious LOL. Precious reminds me of the character from Lord of the Rings.

When my sister told me last night that the troll-iest sister was reproducing her fabulous genetics and IQ, I told her it was probably during a booty call. I'm ashamed I even remembered she'd broken up with that winner bf she had. And I was right!

That whole family is as awful/trashy as the Hiltons.

Is the guy in the picture the ex bf?

Shoeaddict said...

I'm due on November 9th and got pregnant mid Feb. I'm already HUGE but, that's just my luck.

She must be due around the same time as Kendra- great...

Caroline said...

Who are these awful people? What do they do, exactly? Just utterly worthless wastes of space.

ardleigh said...

Yeah like she didn't get pregnant on purpose. The new "hook" for the show is a baby. They prob. thought it worked so well for OctoMom and Kate that it would work for them too.

Lisa (not original) said...

Celebrities don't have any obligation to announce pregnancies to the "general public". She hasn't really been doing much of anything that I've seen before now, so it's not surprising that the subject hasn't come up. It's not like people are clamoring for interviews.

Judi said...

And we'd care because?

Leah said...

Wasn't she the one looking "fug troll" at that baseball photo a few days ago?
Now we know why, she's hiding her belly.

Congrats to all the pregos on CDAN! Did y'all reunite with your ex boyfriends when you found out?
