"Forgive me, I don’t know if you’re friends with her — but who the hell is Kim Kardashian? Like, who are these people and why are they famous and why are they advertising things and being asked their opinions about things? I just don’t understand what these people did to be in a position of having everyone ask their opinions about stuff. I mean, if there’s something about her personality or something that she’s accomplished or her philosophy on something — but beyond that I don’t understand what’s happening. It’s actually frightening."

- Edie Falco, on reality TV culture, to New York Magazine

    LOL NURSE JACKIE (AND TONY'S WIFE) FTW! :)



  2. 2

    KK is famous off the blood of Nicole Brown Simpson.



  3. 3

    Couldn't agree more but you could take a paint brush and brush that opinion over every single actor, actress and celebrity. Who are ANY OF YOU? Thank you for entertaining me, but outside of acting I don't care to hear your opinion on anything. You pretend to be other people for a living and contrary to the Belief of the self-obsessed of Hollywood your opinions on most subject matters are not needed.



  4. 4

    I think Kim Kardashian is the one with the big ass to the right.



  5. 5

    Re: geewillagers – Well said.



  6. 6

    I totally agree who the hell is she since when is being slutty cool



  7. 7

    She's kind of right.



  8. 8

    love edie!! and whoever defends kim is obviously some crack head. seriously, who idolizes someone who released their own sex tape to get famous? yea they are entertaining on the show but that family has NO CLASS. excluding kourt. the point is, sex sells. it will always sell bc of all the perverts in this world not in reality. hey people, instead of watching porn and looking for the next half naked idiot on a magazine, go out and find a relationship and work on your own sex life!



  9. 9

    It is hard for me to believe that Edie doesn't understand the phenonenon. It's like the bearded lady at the circus or the 1,000 pd lady. It is asking the mentally challenged girl who is willing to do sex tapes, if you promise not to call it porn, a real question. the expextation is the ridiculous, and 4 people like Perez to make her a star for being dumb and sleazy.



  10. 10

    Who is Edie Falco????

  11. fiera says – reply to this


    11

    I agree Edie. She is not worth anybody's time or attention, it's very annoying!!



  12. 12

    I totally agree who is Kim k. everyone thinks her and her family are saints. They only have money not brain.



  13. 13

    She is absolutely RIGHT !!!!!! Thank you for Speaking the Truth !!!



  14. 14

    Amen. Talk about a person the word "celebrity" has no application for–thy name is Kardashian.



  15. 15

    kimksuperstar.blog.com

    The whole nasty truth



  16. 16

    Well, with those titays and that big ole bum she's got, she hits all the evolutionary triggers in men that make them want to practice making babies. plus her step dad is Bruce Jenner and her father was a famous attorney. She is a pretty girl, you can't take that away and she did that sex tae that started this bonanza of titays!



  17. 17

    I like Edie, however you could say the same about her….she is just an actress….an entertainer and in the total scheme of things, a nothing…..what do either really contribute to this world? I mean, America should not hold actors to a high level either….Kim K. is famous for a sex tape and had a father that defended a killer….sad sad stuff….IT is the dumbing down of America too….reality tv, bad movies, bad music, no culture or eduational tv (with the exception on the history channel and PBS)….Until people demand more and better, this is what the sad reality will be….Come on people-have higher standards!!



  18. 18

    While it's true same goes for her. Actors think they're so important and always bitch about reality stars it's so boring you are on tv entertaining us just like Kim is so who gives a fuck about your opinion either? Lol!



  19. 19

    hahaha you rock Nurse Jackie!



  20. 20

    Re: Totallytits – You said it and WHAT you said is exactly WHY she is famous AND there inlies the problem….Yes, Kim is pretty…but so are a lot of other people and who really cares? Again, we value the wrong things in this world…superficiality will get us nothing….as the evidence has proven…I mean, look at the state of america right now…depressing.



  21. 21

    Totally agree!

    Kim has done nothing except screw a lot of black guys..



  22. 22

    Re: Pretty Boys Are Forever – she is also a good actress who has done more than the Soprano's……give her credit…..



  23. 23

    Re: Captain Obvious #1 – no actually COCO has more class and her ass is bigger and nicer!

    TEAM COCO.



  24. 24

    Re: MeMo2011 – a very famous actress……tool!



  25. 25

    Re: Kim K Superstar – no one cares loser!



  26. 26

    They are pretty much a tacky family with tacky values.



  27. 27

    Re: MeMo2011 – You can't be serious. You must be 12.



  28. 28

    Re: MeMo2011 – She's in the Sopranos. Plus Nurse Jackie.



  29. 29

    WOW! Relax! Just asked! She is not a household name for me. Kim is all over the gossip pages, this one included. Haven't heard about the other one. But people abviosly have very strong feelings for her!?



  30. 30

    Re: Kim K Superstar
    you are pretty crazy. not gonna lie. as much as i cant stand kim, to take the time to make a web site about her…. WOW
    the only thing you comment on is kim. get a life freako!! you must really want to be her or something

  31. jham says – reply to this


    31

    Couldn't agree more! I think the only people who may disagree are the tween girls that - quite literally are too young and inexperienced to know any better - and the networks that pander to them, steal their souls and take thier money.



  32. 32

    Re: sanfran1 – What are you on about? A serious actor, an artist, has no value in society? WTF? You have no class whatsoever. And gee, what have YOU ever done to benefit society? You are one weird girl.



  33. 33

    That was a perfect assesment of whores like kim and paris.



  34. 34

    Consumption cloaked in "family," that's about it.



  35. 35

    Who is Edie Falco? You have got to be kidding. She is a very talented actor. Who the hell is Kim Kardashian?



  36. 36

    Thank you! My sentiments EXACTLY.

  37. Wrenn says – reply to this


    37

    I totally agree. Kim Kardashian gets pissed on in a homemade video and now her entire family is rich and famous. It's no wonder this country is in the toilet.



  38. 38

    Edie kicks ass. Excellent actress. I agree with her about these stupid useless "reality celebs".



  39. 39

    Isn't it funny how top "movie stars' are so against reality television. YET the top MOVIE STARS tell us to conserve our water, only use one corner of toilet paper, to buy 50k dollar cars that are electric and instead of using a dryer - hang our clothes out on a clothes line. IT IS considered offensive when a "MOVIE STAR" makes a gay slang, or color slang, but "slang against reality" is OK? where do you draw the line? so sad that anyone trying to make a buck in this HORRIBLE economy is allowed to be dished by a "hollywood" a or b lister. - everyone is looking for a job. why not reality, why not trash truck, why not college, why not anythign. why bash reality. they just want to make a living - as gross as it is, who can fault them.



  40. 40

    Edie is right. Look at the "talent" that is in Hollywood today and famous. Most of them are famous for nothing, and no acting or singing talent other than being able to make the "news" with their drinking, druggin and sex antics. It is getting pretty disgusting. Just look at Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan as prime examples. And when they do something illegal, they get their little golden hands spanked whereas if they got the proper sentence, they would stop this crappy behavior.



  41. 41

    So right, but then again, same could be said of Edie Falco. Kardashian is only a celeb because her father & co. got OJ off, and her idot mother remarried Bruce Jenner. Who cares about them, really.



  42. 42

    She's right. I've been seeing a lot of Kim Kardashian. Who is she? A few years ago I happened to watch an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, that was the stupidest show I've ever watched. What has that family done to be so famous- either than having a famous father? They're using their dad's name for their fame. Get off TV already- your show is a waste of time!!



  43. 43

    wow, some1 with brains & spoke her mind; u know a bunch of "hollywood" people r thinking the same shit



  44. 44

    I still don't see what ever1 is so riled about, including Edie. Asking a Kardashian a real question is like asking a smal child or a dog a real question, it's the answer or the confused look that is funny. It's comical.

  45. @v@ says – reply to this


    45

    Hey, Edie. It's kind of like a real life soap, with various unfolding situations, and after long ignoring it, I watched a few and I must say it kind of sucks you in and isn't that bad. It's just a new kind of film art, and the numbers are huge, so watch a couple without judgement. Sounding a bit like a fogey…but the young always come up with something fresh, and the older crowd usually sound like Edie.



  46. 46

    Edie Falco rocks! Someone with real talent not just a fat ass with a father who supported OJ the murderer!



  47. 47

    Totaly agree with sanfran1, Booboo1111 and the like. While Kim K is not someone whos opinion we should consider, Ms. Falco is not much better. She's an actor. Entertainers have for decades been attempting to influence society with their opinions and beliefs. While I don't particulalry think Ms. Falco is the world's greatest actress, even if you do — she is not in any better position to tell us what to do then Kim. She hasn't contributed anything, excpet to randomly be part of shows that create jobs. The same can be said of KIm, her shows create jobs an drevenue for people. And before any snarky comments, I am a professional with a greaduate degree.



  48. 48

    Re: Team Kim Richards – I also mentioned Nurse Jackie. Please read my post properly next time :/…



  49. 49

    It's nice to hear a real actress stating her opinion. Does any one think that if that sex tape never came out that she would be as famous as she is now??



  50. 50

    Re: sanfran1
    you're so right
    I don't value Edie's opinion, the same way I don't value Kim's opinion on anything
    .
    just becasue someone is "known" doesn't mean they are any more educated or insightful than anyone else no matter how much they would like us to think they are
    .
    actors/reality stars-same difference-living in a bubble of an existence that has no bearing on reality
    they all have huge egos and most of what they say or do is self serving
    .
    get tired of celebs spounting off political views etc. as if the workd really cares
    and their words should not influence anyone-we should become educated and informed and start thinking for ourselves



  51. 51

    Re: Kim K SuperstarRe: Kim K Superstar
    OMG, you are brilliant!!! Wooooow, this is the best monologue i have EVER read, DAMN!!
    Everbody who hate Kim K MUST read this. You should get an award.

  52. 52

    Sadly I know more about Kim than Edie. But in this world they are both celebrities. They are not super human beings. They act and they make a lot of money for it, well Kim doesn't act she just..I honestly don't know what she does either. They are no better, no smarter than you or me. I bet most actors/celebrities didn't even further their education beyond high school…they may be able to memorize lines..but then that gig is up, who are you just another hasbeen. The only opinions that I think should count are the ones concerning those who are physically around us-family, friends, and of course yourself!



  53. 53

    Re: attygirlok – What in the hell are your talking about? Please actually read the news story and tell me where Edie "told you what to do". She merely expressed a valid opinion on the state of TV. She's got a shelf of of Emmys for acting in fine TV shows and is nominated for a Tony this year. She's comparing what she and her peers do to the vapid nothing that these reality pseudo celebrities appear in. How is that "telling you what to do", hon. Y'all are not much smarter than Kim.



  54. 54

    She's right



  55. 55

    Re: Team Kim Richards
    You are pathetic….moron



  56. 56

    Lol she's sooo right!!! Well said!



  57. 57

    Thank you!!!! WELL SAID!!! Couldn't agree more.



  58. 58

    I agree with Edie but..the sopranos glorified killing people for money and sold every italian american child on how cool it is to be in the mob.

  59. T.rex says – reply to this


    59

    lol… does anyone else find it a tad bit ironic that this woman is offering us her opinion about how no one should care about Kim Kardashian's opinion?

    Kim is more famous than her. Is a producer, a reality star…. she's nice to look at…. I'd rather hear Kim talking about an issue, any issue over that of Edie freakin Falco. mkay?



  60. 60

    we could say the same about edie. who are YOU? you're just an actress no one cares what you think… more people care what Kim K thinks rather than you



  61. 61

    who the fuck is Edie Falco and why is she being asked by NY times to speak ?

    to put it in plain words..mrs..whatever lol. um.

    Kim is beyond gorgeous. and we care cause they are rich, so their opinion matters :) ))



  62. 62

    absolutely nailed it - the K's specialty is slutty behaviour and knowing people



  63. 63

    Thank you Edie ! Who the hell is KIm Kardashian ??



  64. 64

    EXACTLY -they are ignorant trash.



  65. 65

    Nurse jackie!!! love her lol



  66. 66

    so whos edie falco…



  67. 67

    couldnt agree more. the kardashians call themselves entrepreneurs but they only got that because of their dad and the sex tape, not their talent, they dont have any.



  68. 68

    I heart Falco.



  69. 69

    my question is, who the fuck is Edie Falco, and what the fuck has she done??? Kim K is an icon, she is a jealous wrinkly old bitch.



  70. 70

    All you idiots defending kim are nasty like her.. seriously? ill take a real actress who earned her way to the spot over a hoe with a sextape any day… who gives a shit if Falco is not as "known" as kim.. we all know why kim is more known an there is nothing respectable about it….



  71. 71

    So true.

  72. lck says – reply to this


    72

    the difference between the two women is that one is a multiple emmy award winner, tv, stage and film actress and the other is nothing but a big assed press whore.



  73. 73

    Re: Captain Obvious #1 – it's not "ass" it's balloon butt.. (just kidding)



  74. 74

    Good to know there are still some sane people left in the world.



  75. 75

    Re: Cha_Cha_the famous – Indeed she is.



  76. 76

    Re: MeMo2011 – ummm… shes from the Sopranos and Nurse Jackie. So shes pretty accomplished



  77. 77

    Cant argue with that!!



  78. 78

    BRAVO EDIE FALCO!! And please do not retract or apologize for your comment saying it something like it wasn't exactly what you said and it was taken out of context. You are exactly right! Say it loud!

  79. @v@ says – reply to this


    79

    Meh. Edie's just trying to wrap her head around this stuff like I was. I decided to give some of it a watch. It's not Shakespeare, but then neither are a lot of the regular dramas and sitcoms out there. Edie having an opinion is fun. She's been involved in some really great film, imo. Her vantage point is from a different place.



  80. 80

    FINALLY! Someone said the truth. Kim K is soooo over-rated.



  81. 81

    Yeah baby!! I knew "Nurse Jackie" was cool- this confirms it more!



  82. 82

    Re: longleaf17 – Saints? No! Marketing Machines, YES. Proof; 64 mill income reported last yr. Their brains are laughing all the way to the ATM machine.



  83. 83

    Re: Cha_Cha_the famous – WTF? You can say a lot of things about KK & I will be right there but you are on your own with this one….KK was only 14 yrs. old when her father was on OJ’s defense team. Don’t say shit just to flame…pleaase.



  84. 84

    Re: MeMo2011 – I always thought people that posted these questions were always kidding, like ha, ha who is Perez?, who is Jane Lynch?, who is Congressman Weiner? But you know what they say about people that ass..ume!



  85. 85

    Re: Cha_Cha_the famous – That and her Olympic Medal-winning stepdaddy.



  86. 86

    i don't know who this woman is but i love her. i feel so strongly about these "celebrities" that are making millions for doing nothing. since when do we reward lack of talent?



  87. 87

    Re: booboo1111 – Only actors actually put effort, time, and dedication into what they're doing. Portraying the emotion, situations and interactions they do is HARD. It actually takes TALENT. Reality stars just act like spoiled brats and get paid for it.
