In between Lady Gaga winning pretty much everything at the VMAs (and gracing the stage with Cher — a gay fever dream if there ever was one) and watching the season finale of True Blood (Tara got a jazzy new ‘do!), I also tuned in to watch the madcap adventures of the family Kardashian. Last night’s episode was pretty much split between two questionable habits: Botox injections and cigarettes. As always, Kardashians taught me some incredibly useless pieces of information that I will now share with you PopWatchers…
- Kris Jenner is a hoarder. Now that they have a bigger abode, apparently mama Kris has more room to store insane amounts of crap. For example, she owns 17 (!) spatulas. I’m not sure I even own one and can’t say I’ve ever really even considered a spatula shopping spree. No word on how many ladles or wooden spoons are in the Kardashian kitchen, but I’m waiting for a gossip mag exposé.
- You can buy cigarettes for a minor as long as the ciggies are made with marshmallows. Angry that mom Kris continues to smoke, Kourteney decides to convince their mother that she’s inspiring Kendall to smoke. So Kourteney went to a cigar store and bought some tobacco-less cigarettes for her 14-year old sister that, according to the store clerk, were made of a bunch of different things including marshmallows. It all seemed very Willy Wonka-esque.
- Botox really hurts. Kim decided to get her first Botox treatments since she was turning 30. While she told the doctor that she had a high tolerance for pain, as soon as Kim left the office she complained about the injections. Eventually Kim had to seek out the family physician who told her she may have to wear her sunglasses for a few days to cover up the Botox bruising. Kim, ever the optimist, proposed that maybe she could make wearing sunglasses her new thing. That’s the spirit! When life hands you Botox bruising, think about how you can turn it into a paparazzi shot!
What did you think of last night’s Kardashians, PopWatchers? Is Kim crazy for getting Botox so young?
