The paparazzi aren’t always a celebrity’s best friend. Celebrity shooter Carlton Jordan recently dedicated a blog entry to the tabloid fodder sisters, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian bashing them for being ungrateful for flashing lights they received which were allegedly tipped off and scheduled more times than not. Read on for his own words.
I don’t mind playing the game of cat & mouse with the KKK sisters. You send out a tip or a tweet to where you are going to be. We show up and take your picture. You act surprised. We all get something out of it! But, I draw the line at fame seekers like the Kardashian Klan…especially the irrelevantest one of all, Kourtney Kardashian, sending out warnings to the “paparazzi” for taking pictures of her and her baby! Puh-leeeease!
I am referring to the recent incident where Kourtney and her baby daddy, Scott Disick, who many in LA call a douche, got into a verbal spat with a cameraman at Miami International Airport. Afterwards, Kourtney tweeted:
“Paparazzi beware,” she wrote. “Please don’t get too close to Mason. We don’t like it.” and “Stay at a friendly distance, don’t ask dumb questions and we can all get along”
Um, how about fuck you?
I have strong feelings about this because I do paparazzi work and I remember shooting Kim with Paris Hilton coming in and out of Hyde and her begging for her photo to be taken. I remember the tips coming from Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe’s camp about where they would be, what time, and how long. I remember when the reality show was picked up, my bosses at E! would make sure we set up shots with the Kardashians and wanted us to inform the paparazzi where they were at all times. [They tried the same with Chelsea but no one cared then either] I understand this is the way it works for faux celebs, but to be ungrateful! Arrgggh!
Kourtney, how did the paparazzi know you were arriving? Why did you take the “long walk” instead of pulling your car right up? If you’re so concerned about your kid, why didn’t you make sure you were closer to the door? Or have him in his carrier? Or fly private? Or stop pimping him out in LA and on your reality shows? Or, or, or, or?!!
Here it is, almost 2011, and I have to be mean. Well, I’ve said my peace. So maybe I’ll send out a warning to the Kardashians. There will be a time that you’ll beg the paparazzi to take your photo. And we won’t do it, just like we stopped taking pics of your friend Britney Gastineau when she popped off! Remember, those you piss off on your way up, will be the ones holding the shovels on your way down!
