Perez Hilton announces week-long Kardashian blackout

“Do U ever feel like there’s just TOO MUCH Kardashian news out there?????” celebrity blogger Perez Hilton asked his audience in a post on Tuesday. Your answer doesn’t particularly matter, because his answer is a resounding “YES”—and he’s decided to do something about it.

Monday kicks off #NoKardashiansForAWeek: Hilton is putting the kibosh on all Kardashian koverage, sacrificing that sweet, sweet traffic, and is going to be featuring decidedly different kinds of stories. 

From August 17-21, you can come here for all of the juiciest entertainment news without having to be bombarded by Kim Kardashian, Caitlyn Jenner, and everyone in between!

All Kardashians, Jenners and their boyfriends/husbands/exes!

Their kids too!!!

So what will we be covering in their place?

Instead of the Kardashian klan, next week we’ll be highlighting DAILY inspiring stories about amazing women from all around the world!

Hilton didn’t elaborate on the types of “amazing women” he’d be featuring or the types of stories, but it’s safe to say that Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kris, Kylie, and Kendall working at a charity fashion show will not make the cut.

Despite the fact that Hilton said #NoKardashiansForAWeek would be starting next week, people were extremely confused when he shared a Kardashian story on Wednesday.

Are the Kardashians to blame for our education system’s failings in reading comprehension? Not entirely. But a week of inspiring stories and none of their shenanigans certainly couldn’t hurt.
