"Look at the Kardashians, they’re worth millions. I don’t think they were that badly off to begin with but now look at them,” says Craig.The sisters are not that badly off, which means we get to see a lot more of their life-management skills before they're too boring or too old.
He continues, “You see that and you think, ‘What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f***ing idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions. I’m not judging it – well, I am obviously."

Call me a child of another era – one where tattoos meant that someone had been in the military (good) or prison (not good), but I think America is going to wake up someday from its fixation with tattoos the same way people woke up from hair styles they tried back in the seventies – except they won’t be able to get a hair cut and burn a bunch of photos to eliminate the evidence.That post was motivated by what might be an apocryphal story, but the story confirms enough priors about generalized crudity, whether among the lower orders or Hollywood, to resonate.
