It has been 10 years since the Kim Kardashian sex tape his the market.
And ever since the star after whom this amateur adult film was named took it raw and nasty from Ray J on camera, her public profile has sky-rocketed, her bank account has grown exponentially and every member of her family has landed on the A-List.
All things considered, Kim Kardashian Superstar lived up to its title:
Kim Kardashian is now a superstar.
Would she have been elevated to this level of fortune and fame if she didn’t let Ray J pound her into orgasmic oblivion and then agree to let the footage be released to the public, in the same way her then-boyfriend’s sperm was released into her you-know-what?
We may never know.
But no case can logically be made that states the Kim Kardashian sex tape harmed its lead actress, that’s for certain.
Unless one listens to Kris Jenner, that is.
Appearing as a guest on THR’s Awards Chatter podcast on Monday, Jenner labeled the sex tape “one of the most horrific things that we as a family went through.”
As for charges that Jenner was actually behind the leak?
That it was her idea for Kim to make the video and use it to garner the same sort of fame that Paris Hilton attained via her notorious naked footage?
“It’s nonsense,” Jenner says. “You know, haters are gonna hate. People are gonna come up with the most ridiculous things.”
Come on now, Kris.
We’re not saying you definitely did this.
But it’s not beyond the realm of comprehension that you would have encouraged Kim to simply have sex with the man she was already dating, and then to film it, in order to catapult your family to its current level of celebrity.
It ain’t a ridiculous notion is all we’re saying.
Way back in the day, Kardashian reported dropped a lawsuit against Vivid Entertainment for distributing the tape, settling at the time for $5 million.
But the video continues to sell right up through today and both Kim and Ray J continue to see royalties from it.
Which explains why Ray J wants you go to buy it and jerk off to the material.
Elsewhere in this same podcast, Jenner addressed the trolls that so often harass her and her family.
“There’s definitely a lot of bullies out there,” she said, adding:
“The internet is a crazy place. There’s a lot of really miserable, unhappy, terrified, angry, bitter, nasty people out there that don’t have jobs or are hopeless or depressed and sad…
“… And they can be a big, fat, important bully by going online and typing a really ugly statement to someone else that they’ve never even met before, that has feelings and a heart.”
On this, we actually agree with Jenner.
Finally, Kris responded to the exact sort of critique we sort of leveled at her above: that she cares more about her kids’ business interests than their well-being.
Here is what she had to say on that topic:
“I’m trying to create a business here, and nobody has their best interest like I do.
“We all love working together and we love our situation. Why don’t you go worry about your own situation and go get a job yourself?”
Hey! Wait! What?!?
We have a job, thank you very much.
And at least our job doesn’t involve bringing up our daughter’s sex tape all the time.
It just involves making fun of you whenever you do so. So there!
