Everyone get out your tissues, because one of the creepier pseudo-celebrity couples just broke up: As of Saturday night, North Carolina turned Minnesota shartshooter Rashad McCants and Khloe Kardashian are no longer an item.
(How anyone could feel comfortable with that guy around is mystifying.)
We know, it’s a shocker. Everyone thought they were made to be together. After all, Khloe loves the spotlight almost as much as her sister Kim, and McCants, well, he loves Apple Bottom jeans, boots with the furrrrrrrr and, you get the idea. But there’s no doubting the dissolution of this romantic union, which we first reported on back on Jan. 1, because it comes from the horse’s mouth. No, she doesn’t look like a horse, it’s just an unfortunate phrase. The following excerpt comes directly from the younger Ms. Kardashian’s personal blog, KHLOEKARDASHIAN.COM
“Hey guys. I wanted you all to be the first to hear the news that as of last night Rashad and I are no longer together. Relationships are hard enough as is when you live in the same city, and he’s in a different city everyday for games. Our time together was just so limited because of both of our schedules that we decided it is best not to be in a committed relationship.”
It’s so, so true. Relationships are hard, and schedules can get so hectic, particularly when one half of a couple is a constantly travelling professional and the other half sits on her ass being the famous sister of a girl who became famous for a sex tape.
But oh wait, there’s more. Evidently Kardashian and McCants had been seeing each other for seven months! Seven months people! Really? There’s no way. And since it’s so obvious that there’s absolutely no way they were together that long, what idiot of a publicist told her to leak that time frame? It’s a horrible decision.
(How did this not work? Can’t they try again?)
Almost as horrible decision as McCants’ call to date the younger Kardashian in the first place. As if an NBA baller needs more attention spent on his personal life. Look, McCants may be an attention whore, but you’d have to be an outright massochist to bring on the media horde that follows around the Kardashians. Reggie Bush may have signed on, but we all know from the way he checks out Kim Kardashian’s assets that he has some kind of an unholy pact of what he gets to do to make it worth his while. You know it’s true.
Besides, maybe this can breed more drama. If we’re really lucky, Khloe might start dating one of McCants’ teammates. Like Kevin Love. Now that would be funny. Just imagine Kevin McHale trying to break up the scrimmage fight between Love and McCants that would invariably result. Hilarious.
