I Disagree That The Kardashians Are Not Talented. They Are Business People. They Design Clothes And Have Their Own Stores, So How Is That Untalented?

I guess people's opinion on the Kardashians will always be split. Whilst you're right that they have succeeded in various walks of life, whether that is tantamount to being talented is subject to some debate.

Are the Kardashians talented?

The debate about the Kardashians talent boiled over on a Barbara Walters interview recently.

Walters accused the family of being talentless by saying: "You don't really act; you don't sing; you don't dance. You don't have any -- forgive me -- any talent". Many people feel that these accusations were justified.

On air, the Kardashians retorted by saying that they were entertaining and well-liked, as their TV series proved, and that honing these qualities was a talent in itself.

The Kardashians' celebrity talent

My opinion is that there is always going to be a certain amount of skepticism surrounding the issue of the Kardashians' talent. Whilst designing clothes and running shops requires talent and industry, how much the Kardashians are actually involved in the process is unclear.

These days it does seem as if being a celebrity automatically entitles you to release music, design clothing labels and host TV shows simply based on the amount of public attention you can command. Paris Hilton and Victoria Beckham come to mind in this category.

People also seem to resent the Kardashians because their popularity has a lot to do with Kim Kardashian's infamous sex tape being released over the internet.

The notoriety created by the X-rated video has a lot to do with the way the Karsdashians became a multi-million dollar brand in the first place.

Knowing how to market or sell makes you a business woman. Not an artist of talent in the entertainment arena, in which Barbara Walters was refering to. And Kim K did reply back "It's real hard to make people like you, on a reality show".

People love success Maxine, but they hate successful people.The Kardashians have money, fame, influence and a measure of media power and they have the looks and style to go with it.That's too much of package for anyone and it's human nature to be jealous of the "beautiful people".

I agree that they have to be the most worthless and untalented family alive and how they got this far is anyone's guess  - and the clothes they think they design, I wouldn't even sell in a Goodwill store. Yet someone saw something here, which tells me that that person must be blind or these girls slept their way into stardom.

I think they are talented. Lesson in life: No matter how perfect you are, there will always be haters. No-one is perfect so what I happen to think is they are extremely talented and I would love to have that kind of talent! (Well, hope I helped.)
