Kim Kardashian and Sephora are fighting

Kim Kardashian promoting her new perfume at Perfumania in Camarillo, CA (8/20)

Cheap perfume figggggggggght! From the New York Post:

Kim Kardashian has infuriated Sephora by opting to sell her perfume line to mass-market retailers after signing an exclusive deal with the chain, according to sources. The reality star and the fragrance’s manufacturer and branding company, Lighthouse Beauty, inked a deal with Sephora to exclusively sell the perfume, which is now its top-seller. But a rep for Kardashian confirmed that Lighthouse Beauty plans to widen distribution to other stores including Target and Macy’s. Sources say Sephora bosses are so disappointed, they plan to pull Kim’s fragrance and have canceled some of her upcoming in-store appearances. “Her contract with Sephora was ending, but they wanted her to stay,” said a source.

Kim’s fragrance was Sephora’s “top seller”? What the hell is happening to our society when smelling like one of the Kardashian sisters is actually seen as desirable? I miss the old days, like 2008, when talentless reality stars were seen as nothing more than objects to be laughed at, mocked, and ridiculed. But now it seems like young girls actually look up to them. I’ll tell you what’s really to blame for this problem: that damn Nineteenth Amendment. You give women the right to vote and before you know it, they’ve taken over basic cable with their dumb reality shows. They’re drunk with power. I knew ratifying that amendment would come back and bite us in the ass.
