Radar has confirmed what the rest of us already know, and that is that America is sick of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. “When putting two egotistical, self-serving individuals together, you’ll create a rather vile spark,” says public relations expert Angie Meyer-Olszewski. West has regularly compared himself to beloved figures such as Jesus.

The public, however, begs to differ — his recent show in Kansas City only sold 4,500 tickets out of an available 19,000.

And then there’s Kardashian. “The Kardashian brand is a sinking ship,” Meyer-Olszewski adds. Ratings for “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” have been plummeting, and lately she has been getting more attention for being a “bad parent” (an unfair accusation, for the record) than for being a glamour queen. The couple’s “brand” could use a shot of humility.FeaturesGossip
