For your benefit... [139/365]

I enjoy watching 'Keeping up with the Kardashians'.
For the uninitiated, the show trails the life and 'struggles' of Kim Kardashian and her family.
The show is also a case study of how a socialite can achieve stardom and become a faux celebrity because of a 'leaked' sex tape. While it is fun to see absolute nonsense, you'd also realize how a well oiled PR can do wonders for lady who clearly does not have any talent outside the bedroom.

Reality shows have always been a wonderful way to stretch that 15 seconds of fame into a lifetime. 

Closer home, Shilpa Shetty has shown us how a B grade actress who was on her way out can actually turn fortunes around. I've been amazed how Ms Shetty made lemonade out of the lemons that life dealt her.
She got rich, married richer and even has a perfume of her own.

Veena Malik, the former girlfriend of a shamed Pakistani cricketer, is now a celebrity that makes Indian men go weak at the knees. 

Sunny Leone, the pornstar that has done Indian men proud abroad, is reviled and loved at the same time. And depending on who you ask, she is the Indian to emulate. Conceited Indian men and closeted women will argue that making a movie with Sunny in the lead is bad for Indian culture. But you got to admire the Bhatts for the nerve they showed in getting the one woman who can seduce Asians and Americans at the same time, to star in a movie franchise that first showed how raw sex could be sold in mainstream Indian cinema.

Bring on the bikini wax, hurray to Sex!
