What *is* it about the Kardashians?

Knowing how keenly I'm fixated on the topic of hair, my friend Eric recently sent me this Youtube link of a guy getting a very weird haircut (by Rob The Original).
My apologies for not following the episodes of Life with the Kardashians. I had to turn to Bustle.com to learn the faces are of the Kardashian and Jenner sisters: Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kylie, and Kendall.

Actually, it was easy to find posts about the Youtube post to figure that out. What was less easy to find was a google search for what, exactly, it *is* about the Kardashians?

Eventually, I landed on an article on The Daily Beast. The article, titled "The Dangerous Kardashian Effect and the Profound Impact of the Superficial," is written by documentary filmmaker Lauren Greenfield, on the subject of her movie "Generation Wealth." A very worthy article, and film.

Here's just one quote she offers, from American billionaire David Siegel, who said "money doesn't make you happy. It just makes you unhappy in a good section of town." I read this insight out loud to my husband. He laughed with me, then said "we should put that on our door."
