I mean in comparison to Kim, I can really respect Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. Paris at least started off somewhere as a model and had a real career (before the sex tape). Nicole Richie is much better of a role model; she did some college, wrote okayish books that aren't completely about her self asorbed life, and has good fashion sense. Out of anyone I root for Nicole Richie as a socialite role model.
Another thing is, I don't see why Kim is known as a "hot" celebrity. She really isn't that pretty in the face, even with the makeup. Actually I think the make-up is what makes her less than gorgeous in my eyes. Bye bye to those spidery bottom lashes and keep the bangs all year round. I think Kim probably would look best as a gyaru.... Lets not go there.... ;). Kim does have a good body shape but it's pretty average
I think out everyone in the Kardashian clan, Kourtney and Rob should be more famous than Kim. Both of them are college educated, have business ventures, and don't seem as vain and overexposed as Kim. Kourtney even got her start as a reality star, on a charity show. I think I would be more accepting of a star like Kourtney.
