Confession: While I might have read Kardashian Konfidential so you can avoid the latest in celebrity book ventures, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to read it. As a matter of fact, I offered. Somebody call MTV because True Life: I love the Kardashians. So naturally, I had to read Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe’s sisterhood autobiography (out today).
And even if you don’t care for the Kardashian clan, there’s no denying that they aren’t everywhere you look. (As I write this, Kim is hosting a special on ABC. See? They’re everywhere.) Konfidential — part memoir, part self-help –has the sisters reflecting on their childhoods, talking about their relationships, and sharing their beauty and style tips. A seemingly ridiculous concept for a group of people who are basically famous for being famous. Yet it’s all relatively endearing coming from this bunch, and a must-read for any true Kardashian fan. “We’re not actresses or performers. We are business women, sisters, a mother, a wife, entrepreneurs, fashion designers … And we didn’t set ou to be celebrities. We’re just living our lives, and our claim to recognizability is that we do it in front of the cameras, and people like watching it.” Well said, ladies.
Here are some of the book’s highlights:
I wasn’t really that interested in the advice portion of the book, but they do give various makeup and style tips. As far as I’m concerned, there’s no groundbreaking advice to pass along. (But then again, I’m a pretty frumpy person. So if you’re interested in styling your closet to perfection, than maybe you should check it out.) I was, however, intrigued by one tip which I just might have to try: Khloe’s go-to product? Vaseline. Once a week, she recommends you slather it onto your feet, and then put socks on. Wear them for about an hour, and walk away with smooth feet.
What do you think, Shelf Lifers? Do you have any interest in reading Kardashian Konfidential? And are you, like me, on the Kardashian bandwagon? Or are you sick of this famous fam?
