Billy Porter met the Kardashians & he thinks they’re ‘so kind & down-to-earth’

Billy Porter in attendance for 87th Annu...

Billy Porter seems like the kind of person who suffers no fools. He’s been around long enough and he’s seen too much to waste his time on people who suck. Maybe I’m totally off-base with that one, but that’s how he’s always seemed in interviews. So imagine my surprise when I read this weird little Page Six item, wherein Billy Porter compliments the crap out of the Kardashians. I guess the Kardashians have been around long enough where people are used to them and some people even halfway respect them? But I just assumed Billy Porter would think they’re trash.

Billy Porter says the Kardashians were a pleasant surprise. The actor — who hosted “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” from New Orleans — recently presented his movie “Like a Boss” at a special screening for the famed family.

“I’m not really a reality television kind of person,” he told Page Six. But, “it was wonderful to meet them in person and see how kind and grounded and present they really are.”

“They were so kind and giving and really down-to-earth ladies,” he said.

I’m shocked! But note the circumstances – he screened his film for them, and my guess is that this is just the normal promotional hustle. Everybody’s friends with everybody when they have a film to promote! But even then, Billy Porter didn’t have to talk them up so much.

Now, all that being said… I could actually see myself having a conversation with Kylie, Khloe and Kim and coming away from it like “okay, they’re not so bad, they’re actually sort of interesting.” The other ones? Probably not.

    Kathy Griffin, who also suffers no fools, also talks about how nice, polite, lovely *some* of them are. Especially Kim, and Kris. Even as she continues to joke about them being “dirty whores”.

    I feel like i might want to hit Khloe if i had to talk to her.

    this is called kissing ass

    I believe him.

    I know a lot of kind, present people who have messy personal lives and are opportunists in their business dealings.

    And that’s not sarcasm.

    I would hang with Khloe and Kim. They actually seem like fun. Kylie..I dont know. She’s so young and would probably annoy me. And the other two? HE-LL NO.

  5. Christina says:

    They aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, and I find them boring for the most part, but they are monetizing for themselves the exploitation of women that’s almost exclusively benefited men in Hollywood. They sell sex and beauty, and they are in charge of it and get paid for it. And Kim uses her influence for good. They are the Gabors of our era.

    I also want to punch Khloe in the face.

  6. Gigi La Moore says:

    They seem like a very close knit and loving family. I will duck now. Lol

  7. Tiff says:

    I’ve always heard that Kim was nice and gracious. I believe this.

  8. Miumiiiu says:

    What’s wrong with the other two? I have not seen the show but the other two are the ones with less (or a lot more realistic) plastic surgery thus I feel they’d be a little more normal. I can’t relate to people who keep changing their looks even though they already look ok (and it’s making them look odd)

    Even Hitler had friends. *shrugs shoulders*

    I’m kidding. I have always liked them. In a weird way I find them relatable and I actually respect the love they all have for one another. I mean, It’s hard to run a big family and keep it basically harmonious and they seem to manage it fairly well.

    And I would bet Kim is more down to earth, compassionate and genuine in real life than she seems. I would totally hang out with her.

  10. Elaine Stritch says:

    I’ve actually never heard anything but positive things about Kim. I think people who hate her, hate her. But aside from Taylor Swift *side eye* there really isn’t publicity around them being difficult, rude or nasty.

      People can be multidimensional…

      Are they fame-hos/vapid/narcissistic? yes
      Are they also polite/kind/family-oriented? yes (from MANY accounts)

      Life ain’t black and white
