Okay, I half liked this tramp because when she and her over-glorified, self indulgent, fame-seeking family hit the already overly populated reality TV airwaves she scampered away with much of the obscenely mind polluting, morally offensive media spotlight and unearned millions of that other eccentric, useless whore Paris Hilton, plus she’s ~ethnic and her obnoxia seemed more tolerable than even more of the media darling, idiots who are committing felonies and achieving job tally zero…while offering even less to overall social consciousness and much, much less to the humanity of this world…
HOWEVER I think this latest show of f’d-uppery nonsense is the noose around the neck of acceptance for this leader of the pack of infamous morons that pop-culture reveres.
Here are some samples of a list of excess for the ages, from the ~woman who got famous for the broadcast of her backing-up into a D-list rap star, whose earnings came in at over $60M in 2010, upon this the blessed occasion of her being betrothed to a multi-million dollar contracted professional athlete:
* Extra large Baccarat crystal vase, $7,850

Well, when your sense of reality is skewed from the point of infamy I’m sure this display on top of flaunting a $2M engagement rink is no bother while concepts such as appropriateness, talent, and civics are as foreign to us as whole as an honest politician.
With that, I’ll leave you with this – a true quote of/for these times, and I’ll add a, “REESE for President!” ;)
“I get it, girls, that it’s cool to be a bad girl. But it is possible to make it in Hollywood without doing a reality show. When I came up in this business, if you made a sex tape, you were embarrassed and you hid it under your bed. And if you took naked pictures of yourself on your cell phone, you hide your face, people! Hide your face!” – Reese Witherspoon
Local news, and the social net are all abuzz with both outrage and outcries from the Albuquerque community, who seem ready to hang middle school teacher Kathi Hunter for her hefty crop of “medicinal” greens.
In the very same broadcast after the breaking news of Hunter’s arrest, condemnation, banishment, etc., etc., one of the next stories straight off the teleprompter was some fluff liner about the (and I quote), “antics” of “actress” Lindsay Lohan (tra, la, la, la, la, ha, ha antics, tee, hee, hee).
So kiddies, feel free to watch mediawhores at their finest like Parasite Hilton (allegedly) smuggle coca in her cocha across international borders; Coca Lohan drive drunk, fail court ordered drug treatment/testing, etc., etc., and Kardashian Family post porn gazillion dollar payoffs.
“And also too” – Sheri Shepard
We have violent crime parolees, double digit DWI offenders, child molesters, hard core narcotics dealers, corrupt public officials and cracked out chitlins addicted to the surplus of your Nana’s Rx cabinet walking our streets but throw away the key on this memaw looking pot head.
Well, here are three outlets for boys and girls alike where substance rather than infamy through idiocy is priority:
Brought to you by none other than former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, iCivics.org teaches A. No. 1 the definition of CIVICS. The web based education project is “designed to teach students civics and inspire them to be active participants in our democracy.”
Like the extinction of arts and physical education, there is overwhelmingly no financial planning taught in primary school – thus we are all primed and ready to fall into debt and economic despair fresh out of the uncultured, unhealthy gates. BizKid$.com aims to teach while lending a clue to both youth and adults about how and why to take care of personal economics.
The smart hilariousness of Amy Poehler sweeps the web in her series Smart Girls at the Party where they, “celebrate extraordinary individuals who are changing the world by being themselves.” The humor fueled web series gets eye to eye with young women using their voice to encourage and inspire each other to be confident in being a smart girl!
While looking for the priceless footage of Tom Joles defining ‘sexting’ and even better, ‘tramp stamp’ for us as new Oxford English Dictionary words for 2009, I found instead that a certain leopard is showing his spots.
It seems that our own christened Paris Chavez will leave office with almost 40K of ABQ cash lining his pockets. In a blaze of un-glory former mayor Chavez is getting your dough as a workman’s comp payment for jumping a fence during the ’04 Bosque Fires.
Hey yo’! My back is JACKED! Where’s my monies marty?
Unreal – Khloe Kardashian was on the View last week where she had the nerve to reference her “career” while describing her month long romance with her b-baller “husband” who was so tore-up about being away from his new bride that he insisted she hike across the street from her NYC hotel, lugging that 9-12 karat rock on her finger, to buy a MacBook so they could iChat across the miles. -FAIL
C’mon famewhores even our supreme diva of self promotion did a PSA.
Plagued pugilist, Johnny Tapia was sent back to the clink yesterday after committing an alleged parole infraction by traveling within the state, but out of the city to aid in the search and raise awareness about his missing relative without notifying his parole officer.

Yesterday Magistrate Court Judge Delilah Montano-Baca released a ~man arrested by authorities last week, who is charged with 42 (FORTY-TWO IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII II) counts of the child rape of his own granddaughters.

Real – Kennedy & Cuomo – now this is a cast fit for a dynasty. Less hair and better clothes Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of Camelot and New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo face off for the hotly coveted senate seat soon to be vacated by Hilary Clinton. The two powerful political families have been entwined for decades and with the Clinton’s weaving in and out of this mix a true political web is spinning.
Dramatic? Yes. Superfluous? No.

Lesson Learned – If not you, who? If not now, when?
Unreal – The pretty pixie above: “Jill Hutcheon, president and CEO of the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board and a deputy minister at Queen’s Park [Canada], is charging [Canadian] taxpayers for gas and grocery bills at the cottage, car detailing and ritzy hotels…spent almost $7,000 on a two-day conference in New York City last April where she stayed at one of the most expensive hotels in the city, the Waldorf Astoria… [alledgedly] spent $2,000 on meals last year…[and] spent $168 for a Toronto hotel room when she lives in the city…Hutcheon earns a salary of about $400,000 per year.” – CTV Toronto

“An Albuquerque man is sleeping on the streets for a few weeks to help people who are forced to sleep there all the time.
Steven Gutierrez has been camping out at Armijo Plaza – at Isleta and Lopez…collecting food and blankets for people in need.
He started three weeks ago and plans to sleep on the streets three days a week until he collects two-thousand and eight items.
Right now he’s only a third of the way there.”
Last year Jennifer Lopez charged $1.2 Million for a forty minute appearance at a billionaire’s birthday party. The “actress”, her husband and her entourage were also treated to paid travel expenses – an additional $800,000, and their stay at a posh London hotel (source).
