Riots Greet Kardashian in Bahrain

Could reality-TV princess Kim Kardashian be next in line for Bahrain’s cultural ambassadorship? Don’t hold your heavily fragranced breath. On Saturday, the reality star visited Bahrain to launch her milkshake franchise, only to be greeted by more than 50 angry Muslim protestors. Police threw stun grenades and even tear gassed the demonstrators, who were objecting to the reality star's visit. There were fans as well: several screaming devotees paid $1,360 to see Kim’s milkshake in the flesh. Several hardline Muslim politicians had unsuccessfully tried to block the reality star’s visit in Parliament, due what they call her “extremely bad reputation.” Well, as Kim knows, any press is good press.
