Think of everything you’ve ever wanted to say about the Kardashians, and then thank Rolling Stonemagazine’sRob Sheffield, who managed to put all those thoughts—and then some—in a brief but biting essay called “The Kardashians: The Egos That Ate America.”

In it, Sheffield pointedly pondershowthe Kardashians and their E! reality show have manage to stay in the spotlight for seven years—much longer, he points out, than shows likeThe HillsandJersey Shorehave lasted.
One reason he comes up with: He writes that they’ve “always believed they were celebrities–endlessly amused with themselves, endlessly oblivious to one another.” Another reason? That the plot lines are predictable, but in the best possible way. “The dramas in Kardashian World don’t change much. Kourtney is knocked up again. (She giggles, “Scott wants to kill himself!” Yes. He does.) Khloé mopes around the mansion in one of Lamar Odom’s old sweatsuits. Mom Kris, who has achieved empire-building like Joe Kennedy never dreamed of, wants to party with Rick Ross and Diddy.”

Ultimately Sheffield blames us,all of us, for the Kardashians success, and we hate to say, but he is pretty much right on the mark. “You might loathe the Kardashians, and that’s more than understandable. But there are hardly any ex-fans of the Kardashians, because all they ever promised is what they keep delivering: a journey into the American ego at its most luridly monstrous, with lots of shopping. The ongoing Kardashian saga has turned into the rise and where-the-hell-is-that-fall of an American-family empire, bigger than U.S.
