Kardashian Mastercard is canceled over “ethical” qualms

fp_6172379_kardashian_kim_cjny_112910

The Kardashian Mastercard has been cancelled. You can no longer have the pleasure of charging five dollars worth of soda and candy on your Kardashian Kard. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t really give a crap, but the statement that the Kardashians issued to Gossip Cop is worth its weight in gold. It’s the funniest thing I’ve read all morning:

The Kardashian Kard is kaput.

Kim, Khloe and Kourtney’s much-hyped prepaid debit card has been dumped over allegations that it contains several hidden fees that may be illegal.

This afternoon, legal counsel for the Kardashians’ corporation, Dash Dolls, LLC, sent a “notice of termination” to the companies behind the Kard, ending the endorsement deal after the fees controversy surfaced.

Connecticut’s attorney general, Richard Blumenthal, announced last Friday — the so-called “Black Friday” after Thanksgiving that sees enormous shopping activity — that his office was investigating whether the Kardashian Kard violated consumer protection laws with “predatory” monthly and service fees.

The notice of termination letter says that the Kardashians “have worked extremely long and hard to create a positive public persona,” and are recognized as “honest, ethical, and fun-loving individuals who are kind and caring to others.”

Because the card “might violate” certain laws, rules and regulations, notes the letter, Dash Dolls “terminates the agreement in its entirety, effective immediately.”

Gossip Cop called William “Claude” Butler from the Revenue Resource Group, the firm behind the Kardashian Kard, but has not received a response.

Yes, whenever I think of “Kardashian” the first words that pop into my head are “ethical” and “positive public persona”. I definitely don’t think “famewhore” or “Kat-Face” or “famous for a sex tape”. Granted, the Kardashians on the whole are relatively harmless (in my mind), and I don’t begrudge them their “takesies-backsies” on the whole credit card thing. But here’s a funny story – I bet they kept the thousands of dollars they got as an appearance fee to launch the credit card. Ah, ethics.

    Her eyelashes scare me…

  2. Stronzilla says:

    Well, I don’t know, I can’t think of a better spokesperson than Kim for anything made of plastic.

  3. I luv HGF says:

    Kim is starting to look like Prince.

  4. jay says:

    You know, I don’t find any of them attractive. They’re nice enough looking, in an average kinda way, but none are stunning beauties and in fact are more like living versions of paper dolls that come with a myriad of costume changes and color markers to fill in the facial features. Not a good idea with the propensity to over compensate and/or just have a lack of artistic skills dictating your final visual outcome, no?

    They might seem harmless and really, what harm do they do?, but they also don’t contribute a whole hella lot to anything either.

    It’s easy enough to not willfully support them but it sure rankles that we all STILL know who they are. WHY?????

  5. mslewis says:

    What was this card about? I don’t remember reading anything about it. Did I sleep through it all?

  6. EzE says:

    Ironically, their card is not as bad a ripoff as the majority of the others, maybe all the others, the attorney general is just a hater

  7. Candice says:

    Kims face is corrupt.

    I dont know who in their right mind would purchase that card anyway, it has no benefits.

  8. bellaluna says:

    Kim should never, ever wear her hair like that. It just elongates her already freak-show status face.

    Yeah, Kaiser, that thought was in my head before I finished reading the headline. You know they’re keeping that fee for their hour’s “work.” Honest, ethical, caring for others – my ass!

  9. Sara says:

    What has happened to her face? I used to think she was beautiful, is it the makeup overload or the botox?

  10. devilgirl says:

    Honestly, who on earth walks around thinking that Tarantulas on their eyes is a good look?

    And people made fun of Tammy Faye! How times have changed.

  11. Zelda says:

    @I luv HGF
    hahaha!
    Oh she IS!

  12. Kiska says:

    I bet they got to keep the $25K for doing a brief promotional appearance. What waste of money.

  13. Lashes says:

    Her face is becoming genuinely frightening

  14. Oh the irony- we talk crap about the very people who are drawn to commenting about.. hah- but seriously its been proven (by their bank accounts and television shows..and endorsements) that there are a lot of people who would agree that the kardashians are sexy entertaining and worth talking about (clearly)

    canceling that card was a smart PR move : )

    -whatzerface

  15. guesty says:

    lol.

    would love to see how they attach all that hair. some of the best weave/lace front work evah.

  16. Amanda says:

    HER FAAAAACE. It feels criminal to have messed with a face that is so naturally pretty. I can’t stand looking at her.

  17. poopie says:

    That first picture is just plain WRONG! WHO in their right mind thinks this looks GOOD? and what MALE would be ATTRACTED to THIS? Please, someone TELL ME ! accckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!! mommy, i’m scared!

  18. TeeTee says:

    in the first pic you can see where the fake hair begins, its her thin hair in the front and the rest is a wig or some animal..plopped on top.

    that card was a scam!!! every purchase cost the customer something, even if you called customer serv, there was another fee AND it cost you to put money on the card..

    OF course they did not read anything, they just signed, LOL and collected the money–they don’t care about the young ladies, & grown women BUYING/falling for their bs hype..

    wow, to women buying their products, what fools!!! teens have nothing to beleive in so they beleive in them, says alot about their mothers…smdh

  19. Kitten says:

    God her face is CRAZY looking. Sad…

  20. mel says:

    @Kitten you took the words right out of my mouth. She looks so plastic now.

  21. BReed says:

    My impression of this overly made-up clan is that they HAVE no ethics. Total BS.

  22. MarenGermany says:

    she really fucked up her face, didnt she?
    its like a carcrash…i just cant stop staring at this mess in unbelief.

  23. Str8Shooter says:

    These talentless hos have a freakin’ CORPORATION? For what? Making a sex tape and a reality show about…nothing?

    And who says America isn’t the land of opportunity!

  24. Tuatara says:

    “who are kind and caring to others” — nah, I don’t see that at all. I don’t watch much of their show, but what I have seen is them being complete b*tches to each other.

  25. me says:

    Yeah, right. The vagina of the the one you keep writing about does deserve a slack after eff-starting the family’s career. That vagina worked so hard I feel sorry for her (it).

  26. Marie says:

    First of all all I can say is wtf happened to her face, bitch is scary.

    Second, ethical you gotta be effing kidding me! This is the family the only reason they are famous is because Kim made a video of her taking a dick in every hole and it was posted it on the internet. Correct me if I am wrong.

  27. Jezi says:

    Her face is so messed up. I wish she had left it alone. She was soooo beautiful. She does look a lot better without all the caked on make up though.

  28. Ursaline says:

    @ TeeTee: Your comment about the hair was AWESOME!

  29. TeeTee says:

    @Ursaline, thx

    it scared me at first, like..WHAT???
    the heck is going on up in that area?

  30. Delta Juliet says:

    @ Marie

    My understanding of it (and I have not seen the video) is what made Kim’s video so unique is they filmed her boyfriend peeing on her. Now that’s something to be famous for.

  31. Manda says:

    Her face scares me. I like how the up close pictures are awful. You can see the thick mess on her face.

  32. Belle Epoch says:

    #30 Exactly! Famous for being utterly degraded with a sex tape and being soaked in urine. I CANNOT get past this and don’t understand how anyone thinks it is OK or she is OK.

  33. Anonandonandon says:

    Kim,

    Why the long face?

  34. Jillian says:

    What is going in with her hair in that first picture??

    I was actually naive enough to think that Kim’s real was all natural.

  35. TaylorB says:

    Man alive she is really looking strange these days, a little blue face paint and she is an Avatar.

    Such a pretty woman, why would she do that to herself?

  36. Marie says:

    @Juliet & Epoch are you freaking kidding me? She let someone piss on her? Oh holy hell, I feel dirty I’m going to shower. What a dirty dirty slut.

  37. Nicole says:

    who’s the dumbazzes who bought one of these scam cards? I see they’re hiding out

  38. Jeri says:

    Never thought I’d see the Kardashians and Ethics in one sentence. Nice to think they have some but most likely they didn’t want the criticism over the extra fees ripping people off.

  39. hellen says:

    She looks like a plastic blow-up sex doll.

  40. Jules says:

    She looks like an effing freak!

  41. The_Porscha says:

    @I luv HGF: Kim will hope, but never be, Prince’s size, that’s for damn sure.

    If this girl keeps carving herself up like a Christmas f-cking ham she’s going to look like Cher in a couple of years.

  42. Fishlips says:

    Amanda (#16) said it perfectly. She should have left her natural beauty alone.

  43. Bitter fruit says:

    Urine is what I think of when I see these attention hos. Bletch. And now the head ho is trying to model herself on Jocelyn Wildenstein.

  44. dragonlady sakura says:

    @I luv HGF: Catface does not look like Prince! Prince will always be ten times prettier and talented than any Kardashian.

  45. sassy says:

    Awesome DevilGirl – comment about Tammy Faye.

  46. lucy2 says:

    I’m sorry, but that is just not a human face. WTF??? (Why the face? Phil Dunphy)

  47. TeeTee says:

    I read an article that said 250 people had signed up for the card since Nov 11th..LOL

    I’v read comment and some folks are saying “the attorney general” is jealous..LOL…

    Its too late, her fans are already gone off their rocker!! They’ve been raving about her new book and have slept outside all night at Barnes and Noble to get an autographed copy today..

    (peeked at her twitter)smdh

  48. slymm27 says:

    why all the nasty comments, aand plastic face, sex blow up doll talk? I don’t care muuch for the kardashians, and really kim will pass for an avatar with a little blue paint, but enough with the sex tape talk, its boring, kim has made the mistake, and has moved on, she has made the best out of the scandal, now get over it. You are all hung up on an old sex tape, and keep talking of ray peeing on her, well shit happens, its done, its done, can not be taken back, now she has moved on, and is raking in millions of dollars, why don’t you all just do the same. You sound like a broken record.

  49. jess says:

    i seriously love that dress

  50. Ruffian9 says:

    THERE WAS A KARDASHIAN MASTERCARD?

    Society really is FUBAR.

  51. peanut says:

    her facial expressions are just like the dumb expressions paris hilton makes…

  52. la chica says:

    now we know why Khloe launched her losing virginity at 14 story. gotta to distract from the negative press about this card.

  53. Mouse says:

    DANG, she looks old and empty headed.

  54. Amy says:

    What did she do to her face? She used to be naturally pretty.Now she looks different.

  55. Jayla says:

    WTH! She looks about the same age as her mother…they look like twins. That first pic is just horrid.

  56. bellaluna says:

    @ DevilGirl – My theory is Kim wears those hideous lashes to try to distract us from the rest of her face. She’s hoping maybe we won’t notice all the plastic surgery fuckery she’s committed to her face. Yeah, she thinks we’re all as ditzy as she & her sisters. (Except for Khloe, who has the cajones to call “bullshit” when she sees/hears it.)

  57. Richi says:

    She and her stupid eyelashes!!! she is getting uglier day by day now. she used to look really pretty thing once a upon a time!

  58. DetRiotgirl says:

    @Ruffian9 FUBAR! Lol, thanks for reminding me of that one. I hadn’t heard that term in a long time!
