While wearing a dress the color of the tears you shed when you see another Kardashian post, Pimp Mama Kris appeared in a cloud of black smoke at the E! Upfronts in NYC yesterday and she brought along her iPhone with her official title on it. Im not taking 'Queen of Fucking Everything' to mean that shes the Queen of Everything. That title already belongs to Richard Simmons...Im taking it to mean that she will fuck absolutely everything for a dollar or for a blurb in (insert the name of every single magazine that exists on the planet here)... If you told PMK that E! will give her family another spin-off show if she 69ed with Lucifer, shed shrug and tell you that shes been there, done that, but shell gladly do it again. If you promised PMK everlasting wealth and fame if she sold her entire family into the hands of the head of an underground sex slavery ring, shed grab a price label gun and immediately shoot a $3.00 tag onto Khloes forehead.
