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.

    If you have a good heart and a sound mind and you listen to the DNC convention you will admit that it is a wonder to behold. These brilliant people knows how to present their truths to people. The RNC convention of last week cannot even compare. Speaker after speaker just nail the issues right on. Their hardly any finger pointing and name calling. Just the plain facts on what the Democrat under the Leadership of President Obama stands for, what they have accomplished and will continue to accomplish in the next 4 years. They really have a plan. Romney and Ryan does not have a plan. If they do no one heard it last week. All you heard was the continune beating up of Obama. Yes, there is a very clear choice in this election, and it is not very hard to see. The the debt is 16T. and GOP want to let you think that Obama spent all that money... No the 12T of that amount is on their watch. Also The unemployment of 23M. But jobs are being added each month without the help the GOP. If we all send a message to the GOP by hiring Mr. Obama for another 4years. YOu will see they will have no choice but to work with him and pass the jobs bills that is on the table. They cannot continue to remain obstructionist. But it is up to we the people to let them know they cannot pull the wool over our eyes anymore. Go out and vote for Obama/Biden 2012.

    News people . . . And I use the term, loosely, who cares? And what voter's block is under Kim's influence? Todays news journalist, are the worst in history. The lame stream media has become a joke. No one takes you guys serious. You are so bought and paid for. Stand for something real and honest, like telling the american people the truth about these candidates. Instead of letting them dominate and control the conversation. You have the power of truth in your reach, grab hold of it.

    The family was blindsided when the president said one thing to someone and the complete opposite to someone else?

    Why do you guys think that anything she does is news worthy? If she utilizes her only talent while she's there she'll be spending all her time on her back

    Leave it to CNN to lead its politics blog for at least three hours with a Kim Kardashian article on the morning after Bill Clinton's nomination speech Pitiful. I don't come to this website very often. Neither do many other people.
