So back in my ratchet days, I used to love nothing more than to curl up on my full-sized air mattress (I was a broke college student…leave me alone) and watch hours of Love and Hip Hop. There’s no confidence boost better than watching The Puerto Rican Princess spew out broken English and watch her chase around a man who treats her like a piece of property. With all of the craziness, as a viewer, you go on a desperate hunt to find the beacon of hope. The one character who SURELY isn’t as crazy, or as desperate, or as mind-glowingly irritating as all the others. And we found that character in Mimi Faust! She had her own heap of craziness but at the end of the day, we felt sorry for her and we appreciated the fact that she was “attempting” to move forward with other men. Fast forward to the current season and Mimi has had the most talked about story line involving a “leaked” sex tape with her boyfriend Nikko.
That sounds erringly familiar to a little Armenian girl by the name of Kimberly Noel Kardashian who too rose to fame by releasing a sex tape. But I can’t help but think that Kim was able to do it was a certain….je ne sais quoi….Kim was able to turn something that could have completely destroyed her name and reputation and turned it into a billion dollar empire. While Mimi has only managed to look at best like a complete idiot. Therefore, I am wondering if Kim Kardashian has a secret that none of us know about. Could Kim Kardashian be a secret genius?
Hear me out! I’m being a little tongue and cheek but I’m completely serious! I think that Kim may be the single, smartest person in the world. Who do you know that is worth millions of dollars with no obvious talent? Who can get away with selling a book of Instagram selfies for $20? Who earns money every time they have a wedding? What other reality star has graced the cover of Vogue magazine? Kim Kardashian has managed to become a household name and sometimes…SOMETIMES…we forget that she began her career as an unexpected porn star.
So why can’t Mimi seem to have the same amazing rebound that Kim Kardashian managed to have? I know the obvious card to pull would be that she’s black and Kim is clearly a white woman but I think theres a deeper reason than race. What I gathered was that AT LEAST Kim didn’t own or act like she HAD to release her sex tape against all other odds, but Mimi tried to pretend that she had no other options and that she had to make the best decision for her and her family. Guh, POO CHEESE! Basically, Mimi is an idiot. But look at the Queen of Reality TV Kim Kardashian who has built an entire empire including multiple tv shows, clothing lines, modeling deals, fragrances, and tons of other things.
ALL IN ALL, Kim is a genius. Mimi is the gum underneath your shoe.
I know I talked about two sex tapes today, but that doesn’t mean you need to go and search for them.
Don’t be nasty!
And that doesn’t mean that you should follow in the footprints of Kim because the odds of your career taking off from a sex tape….cough…Mimi….cough….is very slim to none! She is not a shining example of what you should aspire to do. Yes, please go get your checks, and become a business mogul, but DO NOT do it by releasing an “alleged” leaked sex tape.
But like the Player’s Club so wonderfully stated, Make that money, But don’t let that money make you!!!
