I think the Kardashian sisters are the Gabor sisters, minus the acting talent.

What say you?

I'd say they have a way to go before they equal the Gabor sisters. We'll see how long they last. These days people like the Kardashian 's make so much money so fast they can afford to retire and fade from public life after a few years.

Eva, best known for "Green Acres", had actual comedic talent. Zsa Zsa is best known for hitting traffic cops...

I'm not sure the Gabor sisters were famous for any particular talent either....other than marrying well....and often.

I guess it's all good as long as it worked for them. Same with the Kardashian sisters. They should use whatever they've got while they can make money off of it.

Ava was much loved in the Old Hollywood community. She had class and style, and was known for her generosity and sense of humor. Any Kardashian has a looong way to go to be compared to her.

We have the complete episodes of "The Green Acres" that the family still enjoy watching from time to time.
The Gabor sisters definitely were known for their colorful but unique personalities. The glamorous life-style however, is a tough act to follow by any standards. imo

My thought is that the Kardashians are huge self promoters, and the Gabor sisters were also major self promoters in their heyday.

It's difficult to go one week without seeing one of them online, flipping channels on t.v. or in the gossip rags at the grocery store.

I say they are all useless, and wonder why the public gives those 3 twits any attention what so ever.

You really have to wonder, people actually are interested in this family.

I would rather eat a bowl of razor blades with gasoline than sit through one of their shows....

Can't say I would go that far to avoid them. Ouch.
