Kim Kardashian says she's headed to party with Dems at convention

(CNN) – If contemporary politics didn't already resemble a bad reality show, it will come a lot closer Thursday.

Kim Kardashian – reality show star, sex tape entrepreneur, and girlfriend of Kanye West – tweeted Wednesday night she was Charlotte-bound for the "official DNC after party."


The venue she lists, Club Hush, doesn't appear on the official convention website, and the phone number listed in the yellow pages for the club is disconnected.

President Barack Obama officially accepts the Democratic nomination for president Thursday at the Time Warner Cable Arena, and while a multitude of political stars will be present, it wasn't clear whether Kardashian would be in attendance for the main event of the three-day convention.

On Wednesday CNN reported that a trio of young actresses – Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and Kerry Washington – would make some kind of appearance at the Democratic event.

Kardashian is a regular guest at the White House Correspondents Dinner, held annually in Washington, though she's been the butt of several jokes at the gathering.

"Seriously, guys, what am I doing here?" Obama said in a pre-taped segment at this year's dinner.

"Why am I telling knock-knock jokes to Kim Kardashian? What is she famous for, anyway?" he asked.

Kardashian later told US Magazine that the highlight of that night was meeting Martha Stewart.

Last October, the entire Kardashian family was reportedly offended when first lady Michelle Obama criticized their bevy of reality shows, telling iVillage ""Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians - when they watch that stuff - he doesn't like that as much."

The family was "completely blindsided," according to TMZ, since the president apparently told Khloe Kardashian that the flagship Kardashian reality show, "Keeping Up with the Karshashians," was "great" when the two met last year.

    The Democrats have enough humiliating baggage without that trollop being there.

    So one of the 1% is going to party with Democrats. I guess the Dems have no problem with taking her money if needed.

    This is a no value added situation, if there ever was one.

    Kardashians and Biden are the intellect and typical followers of the Democrat Party! We need 4 more yrs of this so they can finish off the US economy for good!

    drove by Hush (previously the Capri) last night and saw her name on the billboard for Thursday night. This place had been closed for months with a "for sale" sign on it until it opened for one night on July 4. It's been closed ever since. Highly doubt any official DNC parties will be at this dump.

    ... and this is EXACTLY why I won't vote Democrat.

    Democrats never judge themselves or each other by results.

    Only by intentions.

    And this is why we shouldn't re-elect Obama. We want our leaders to have real business experience, not hollywood experience. More reality please...

    She fits right in with the "we care more" bunch who do nothing but want the government to intervene on your life and money. Makes them feel better about themselves.

    Wow! This is VERY important news that Kardashian is going to be at the DNC! Guess I better buy a 1st class airline ticket to get there also. Like, who really cares what she does or where she goes?

    not really a big fan of them or her at all, but I'll tell you this I'd rather look at her than look at Hank Williams, Jr or Ted Nugent ANY DAY!

    She doesn't have the IQ to be a dem-but she's welcomed anyway.

    I love the post from the guy Victor...."this is Exactly why I wont vote democrat". Making the extent of his political reasoning and rational thinking based on Kardashian.

    Just like a Kardashian...comes to the after party ...but not to the cause.
