Before she got married in an extravaganza that was actually a not-so-subtly-coded message to America*
*the message being "F*** you, America, here's what I'm doing with the money you give me
Kim Kardashian took a "family retreat" to Bora Bora.
Where she complained that her bungalow was "too hot" and had "too many flowers."
Here's what Kim was complaining about, taken from the website for this resort that for some reason our society lets people go to and still come back here and be treated like people:
Enjoy views of the lagoon from your private water-side balcony or relax in your king canopy bed and watch Bora Bora's exotic marine life float past the glass floor-viewing panels. Unwind in the Italian marble bathroom or stay entertained in the separate seating area with satellite TV and high-speed internet access.
You need that TV and internet in case the exotic tropical beauty outside gets too boring and you just have to find out what's going on with other "celebrities."
While Kim Kardashian was complaining that her at-least-$1,000-per-night hotel bungalow was just too luxurious, she also was wearing a pair of earrings that cost $150,000.
Or so I gather -- because when she went out to go swimming, wearing the earrings, she was tossed in the water by her fake, for-publicity-reasons-only husband, and immediately started crying that she'd lost an earring worth $75,000.
Kim Kardashian, mind you, gets all of her money because you give it to her willingly, and you give it to her willingly just so you can watch her do stuff with your money.
That's what a reality show is: When you buy "Dash" clothes or watch a reality show or buy Kim's sex tape, you're giving her your money, and then you tune in to see what she does with it.
And what she does with it is exactly what you'd expect of a woman who became famous for getting pee'd on: She complains that things are too luxurious and blows $150,000 on earrings.
Kim Kardashian, when she's not letting her STDs seep into the ocean by Bora Bora, lives in West Hollywood, California.
One in 20 people living in West Hollywood make less than half the federal poverty rate. There are 34,399 people living in West Hollywood. Which means that 1,719 people living in Kim Kardashian's neighborhood make less than $11,000 for a family of four.* That is, 1,179 people in Kim Kardashian's city earn about $211 per week.
*The federal poverty level is about $22,000 for a family of four.
Kim Kardashian spent the equivalent of five weeks' pay each night she stayed in Bora Bora, and a more than a lifetime of money for that same family on her $150,000 earrings.
And complained about it.
And she did it with your money.
