Kardashians Sued Over Prepaid Kards

Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are being sued by credit card company Revenue Resource Group LLC for breach of contract after the sisters backed out of a deal they had with MasterCard for their own prepaid debit card. The reality television stars endorsed the prepaid cards (perfect for the 18 and under crowd) beginning November 10th but by the end of the month, the women broke their deal after much criticism and bad press for the "predatory fees" associated with the card. For starters, the 'Kardashian Kard' was $60-$100 to activate, making it the most expensive prepaid card to ever hit the American market, despite being labeled as a 'luxury card.. Revenue Resource Group LLC is suing the Kardashian trinity for $75 Million.

Here is a list of the rest of the fees associated with the card:
Card Purchase (Includes monthly fees for 6 months) $59.95
Card Purchase (Includes monthly fees for 12 months) $99.95
Monthly Fee (Applies after initial purchase period) $7.95
Card Replacement - Primary or Companion $9.95
ATM Withdrawal - Domestic $1.50
ATM Inquiry or Decline - Domestic $1.00

Bill Pay - Per Item $2.00
Replacement Card Expedite Fee (Overnight) $25.00

** 2.5% surcharge of transaction amount applies

So basically, the Kardashians and their handlers know their fanbase is mostly impressionable, underage half-wits that watch way too much television and idolize amateur pornstars and their siblings, so they decided it would be a good idea to endorse a card with outrageous fee$. What they didn't count on was the backlash since they've only been raking in ca$h up until now. Their lawyer released a statement saying, "The Kardashians have worked extremely long and hard to create a positive public persona that appeals to everyone, particularly young adults. Unfortunately, the negative spotlight turned on the Kardashians as a result of the Attorney General's comments and actions threatens everything for which they have worked." See how he used sexually inviting words? After all, part of Kim's fanbase have penises.

Let's not forget that Kim is only famous for making a sex tape with Brandy's younger brother, Ray J, similar to her friend at the time, Paris Hilton. Her sisters decided they would ride on her coattails to the limelight and after Ryan Seacrest started working for E!, he helped produce their reality show and voila! FAME.
Before the sex tape, Kim was a fame-hungry celebrity stylist for her friends like Monarch-elitist-slave Paris Hilton. After the sex tape, she garnered fame thanks to her new nose and large backside which gave her new opportunities, you know, like posing for Playboy. And that old rumor that Hugh Hefner only lets girls who he's slept with get on the cover...well, I'm sure Kim, Paris and Pam Anderson never heard of it. At the time of the sex tape's release, there was a lot of controversy over an alleged scene where Ray J urinates on Kim. Kim denied the "watersports" accusation but then again, she denied a tape every existed. Its rumored that part of her agreement with Vivid Entertainment (the company that released both Kim and Paris' tapes) for the release was that the scene not be included.

There was actually an episode of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" where Kim wasn't sure if she would even pose for Playboy (because she's so modest and pure), but her mother Kris Jenner and Hugh Hefner convinced her it was an honor. Hugh even reminded her that Presidential MK pin-up Marilyn Monroe was the first cover girl. Hefner forgot to mention how he had bought the pictures of Marilyn from a photographer who used the images for a nude calendar when she was down on her luck, before becoming famous. Whatever makes you feel better about posing for a magazine men all over the world will masturbate to, I guess.

Kris Jenner is the epitome of class.
