    Re: Keeping Up With the Kardashians

    So where did Kris get the Viagra???? Was that ever discussed in the show? I mean realistically it's not the sort of medication you just walk into the condom aisle and buy. You, as a man, have to go to the doctor get a physical to make sure it won't kill you and then you get a prescription in your name which you take to the pharmacy...

    So did Bruce have a prescription and she was just dosing him? Or did she go buy some, essentially, street drugs and dose him with zero knowledge of how it may affect his health adversely?

    Re: Keeping Up With the Kardashians

    As I recall, she got the Viagra from a girlfriend whose husband/significant other had, I assume, a legitimate prescription of it. I definitely remember that she did not get it via a pharmacy and that Bruce was unaware she was slipping it into his coffee, because it was not his prescription. I remember thinking at the time that I was surprised that they were able to show something with obviously involved some breaking of the law.

    But even if it wasn't a street drug, you never know what someone else's prescription will do to a person, unless that person has taken the drug before (or is taking it presently).

I have no idea how many people use arousal oils, but I suspect it's less than the number of people who use things like paper towels or orange juice.

    If that's the case, maybe it indicates that the Kardashians aren't quite as marketable as they once were. Or at least that Kris, for all her need to think she is, isn't as valuable as a spokesperson as her kids are.
    Even though I think that Kris Jenner is the skankiest pimp mom-ager who always seems to put herself before her children, and totally creeps me out -- to be fair, she isn't the only person to have promoted sexual enhancement for women. A number of years ago Cristina Ferrare came on the Oprah Show and was promoting testosterone cream to enhance women's sexuality. She wasn't representing a specific product, but she herself had gone through a period of reduced sexuality and her doctor suggested testosterone cream which apparently worked so well, that Cristiana was raving about it and wanted to share this news with all the women in the country.

    Also, if I'm not mistaken, there have been other well known women who have promoted similar products --- Suzanne Sommers comes to mind, and perhaps a few others.

    Re: Keeping Up With the Kardashians

    Just to be fair, I went on-line and read one article about Kris Jenner's promotion of arousal oils--and after that experience, I'm not going to read another one. It wasn't that I was grossed out but that I was aggravated by her comments. She said that the product basically provides instant arousal and when you're a really busy woman, you have to take advantage of moments of intimacy when they become available. She also said that no matter how much you love your spouse, there are moments where you feel like "What...you again?" and the arousal oil takes care of that. It doesn't appear that it's a product that helps women overcome periods of reduced sexuality (I could understand the promotion of that, since a testosterone cream that helped with that would be helping with a medical problem, as the fact that Cristiana Ferrare was prescribed hers by her doctor would suggest). The way Kris is promoting it, it sounds more like a product for the ultra busy woman who needs to be able to have sex instantly, when it fits into her schedule, even if her husband isn't particularly turning her on at that moment (and I'm sure the "what, you again?" comment must be a real ego booster for Bruce). Her whole approach to the product seemed crass. It was more like "You wanna feel like having sex immediately, even if your spouse isn't turning you on anymore? Try this!" as opposed to "If you're finding yourself uninterested in ever having sex, it might be a medical problem that can be easily corrected."

    I have never watched this show but I get enough through osmosis to know the gist. This new season coming up with 'is Kloe a Kardashian?' is a clear indication they are running out of plot lines!

    The question of whether Khloe is a Kardashian has been a HUGE question mark since not only has Kris admitted to cheating on Khloe's 'father' -- and not only did both of Robert Kardashian's other wives or mistresses both say that he told them on his deathbed that Khoe wasn't his biological daughter, but OJ Simpson either said or alluded to the fact that Khloe was HIS daughter, (and don't forget, Kris and Robert Kardashian were very very 'close' with OJ and Nicole Simpson). I don't know whether any of this is true, but to me, Khloe (who looks very different from all of the other Kardashians), physically looks very much like OJ Simpson, and when the media ran photos of OJ's daughter and Khloe side-by-side, there was a tremendous resemblance. So I think this question is not only a valid a 'plot line' -- but an actual question of fact that has been raised by a lot of people. The good news for Khloe is that she has said many times, that she loved Robert Kardashian very much, and even if there was truth to any of this, in her mind, he was her 'real father' in every meaningful sense of the word. Good for her!

    I just put this season on my DVR. Thanks for the background. OJ? Nah. That is hard to believe since she does not look racially mixed.

    edited to add: I just looked up those pictures. hmmmmmmmmm There is definately a resemblance.

    Re: Keeping Up With the Kardashians

    I think she does have a different father.

    Also, I didn't watch - I'm pretty done with them - but I did see an clip where Kris is saying how all this paternity stuff isn't her fault. It's the fault of RK's ex girlfriends who made the claims. Two things: This isn't the first time this was brought up and for good reason. Khloe doesn't look like her sisters. Plus, none of this would matter if Kris hadn't been unfaithful which she admits! how is that not her fault?
    (And she wrote about it in a book which she's promoting? If you don't care about what your adult children think and feel, wouldn't you at least care about your teenage daughters who could have to face their mom's infidelty discussed at school?)

    I have never watched this show but I am now. It will wear thin quickly, I am sure. The way Bruce is treated is almost unbearable! Takes two though; he does withdraw.

    I am going to say yes to having a different father. Her height and hair color alone stand out.
