is famous for reasons beyond comprehension. But, that's not really the point these days, is it? Once you become a famous tabloid subject, you can have your own reality show, and then you keep on being a tabloid favorite. Kardashian doesn't do much of anything, but she will be making an appearance on an upcoming episode of How I Met Your Mother
, a series that has already plumbed the depths of tabloid celebrity cameos this season by bringing in Heidi and Spencer from The Hills
for a guest spot on the CBS comedy. Kim Kardashian doesn't have much acting experience, but she'll be playing something that she can relate to – a talking gossip magazine. With last year's Britney Spears guest role and the announcements of Kardashian and Speidi's cameos, I get the distinct feeling that the How I Met Your Mother
team is doing their best to make Joel McHale's brain explode.
Kardashian's episode will air on CBS in January. It will follow Marshall (Jason Segel
) as he searches his office building for the perfect bathroom, one that will give him privacy in his daily time of need, if you will. He'll be in possession of a gossip magazine (called “Them Weekly”), which will speak to him in the form of Kim Kardashian. How I Met Your Mother
knows what they're doing and this seems like the only reasonable way to use Kim Kardashian on the series. Given that plot line, it's most likely that How I Met Your Mother
had written the role before bring Kardashian in – it's not like they wanted her and wrote it specifically for her.
Why is Kim Kardashian famous? Some might say it's because she has an enormous ass. I suppose this is partly true. But, here's the real reason why: she was friends with a non-famous person (Paris Hilton) who got famous for making a sex tape. In response, Kardashian, still not famous, made a sex tape of her own with Brandy's brother Ray-J, and parleyed the visibility that came with the release of the sex tape into the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians
. Now, she's engaged to Reggie Bush, running back for the New Orleans Saints and a household name.
Life is weird.
