Edie Falco: ‘Who The Hell is Kim Kardashian?’

June 8th, 2011 // 98 Comments

First, Reese Witherspoon fired her chin cannon at reality television at The MTV Movie Awards, and now Nurse Jackie and The Sopranos star Edie Falco has unloaded on the genre in a new interview with Vulture where she questioned, rightfully so, why the hell Kim Kardashian is even famous:

Do you think our society’s hunger for fame has gotten out of control, like it’s worse than it was in the late sixties, when the play takes place?
I don’t really know if the hunger for it has changed, but our obsession for it seems to have changed. I’m not so good at commenting in any meaningful way about these things, but celebrities are now like our royalty, you know what I mean? Most of them haven’t really done anything to earn where they are, which is what’s so troubling. There’s an obsession with famous people who, oftentimes, are not worthy of a million people knowing who they are and what they think.
So it’s safe to say you don’t watch much reality TV.
No, not a big fan. Like, forgive me, I don’t know if you’re friends with her — but who the hell is Kim Kardashian? Like, who are these people and why are they famous and why are they advertising things and being asked their opinions about things? I just don’t understand what these people did to be in a position of having everyone ask their opinions about stuff. I mean, if there’s something about her personality or something that she’s accomplished or her philosophy on something — but beyond that I don’t understand what’s happening. It’s actually frightening.

Who the hell is Kim Kardashian? Allow me: Sometimes, when a daddy really loves a mommy, and has to tinkle…

    Kimmie K., America’s favourite brand of urinal cake. Look for it wherever you buy Ripple and MadDog 20/20.

    Let me straighten this out for you Edie. Kim is famous because her Daddy aided and abetted a horrific murder by defending a psychopath. Of course, Daddy got sent to hell for his crimes, but managed to get his daughter a pact with Lucifer thru a rite of piss. Sure, Daddy is being punished by playing nine rounds of hell golf with his buddy Johnny Cochran and the dark beast himself, whom ends the ninth hole by shoving his red hot nine iron up Daddy and Johnny’s eager rectums, but at least his little girl is famous. That is until she has to meet her master, which is probably why she keeps up those cock sucking skills. Word is the overseer of hell has a pretty big package.

    Man, people are some haters on the Kardashians. Three young women who were already business owners and just so happen to love to go out. Can they help if their mother is a marketing genius. The fact people bother to even talk about them means someone is watching. I’m not mad because they have become worldwide icons. You can’t deny it….brilliant!!! Edie seems to be jealous Kim gets more pub than she does…lol! Give her a tissue!

    People like KK enter the public consciousness for all sorts of reasons. It’s more about us as social animals than about them as individuals. They provide a common thread and common culture which help to knit our western society together in much the way sports do. It’s something to discuss, pass judgement on, make jokes about and distract us from the drudgery of everyday life. It’s why we come to blogs such as these, isn’t it?

    I find Kim to be fun and nice. Edie to be overrated. Actually, who the hell is Edie? She can act? Uh, so what. She is proficient at playing someone who is not her. Wow. Great. Why do we respect that, but dog Kim, who is an entrepeneur?? Yep, she had a sex tape and flaunt what she’s got. So what? She’s parlayed that into a big business. It takes brains and putting up with apparantely most people on here to make it work.

      Again, Edie is one of the few actresses to ever sweep the top three television awards. In 2000, she received the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, The Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Drama Series, and the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series, all in the same year for her performance as “Carmela Soprano” in the hit HBO series “The Sopranos” (1999). Kim got pissed on.

    when a fat-assed midget cocksucking whore can become a celebrity that’s when you know that the world has gone to hell in a hand basket.
