Kim Kardashian Vs Old Navy

Hey there.  Last night, I was a family get together when current events were brought up and a discussion in regards to Kim Kardashian and Old Navy was heating up.  It turns out that Kim Kardashian is suing Old Navy for $20 Million for using a woman with her likeness in their commercials.  Wow... really?!?  I remember seeing the so called Kim look a like (Melissa Molinaro) commercial and never once did it occur to me that she looked like Kim Kardashian.  As a matter of fact, I don't think Melissa looks anything like Kim.  I just thought to myself that the song was stupid, it was a little on the annoying side, and that the woman was trying to hard to be "cute".  If Kim believes that this shallow display of a character is her likeness, I will be floored.  Kim is not a celebrity (in my eyes, at least) and she doesn't have any talent.  The only reason anyone knows who this woman is is because of that "leaked" sex tape with Ray J and I think it's terrible that a woman with no talent is not humble enough to say, hey, I'm fortunate with the success that I do have, I don't need to make an ass of myself.

I think that Kim needs to get off her high horse and drop this suit.  She's just a pretty face that got lucky in life.  Nowhere in this commercial are they insinuating that they are imitating Kim and it's preposterous that Kim feels it necessary to stop any woman that resembles her to gain any TV work when she, herself shouldn't even be on TV.  What do you think?  Am I wrong?  Do they really look that similar to each other that Kim has a legitimate case?  I just don't see the resemblance and if it weren't for the suit, I don't think anyone else would have either.  If you haven't seen the Old Navy "cute" commercial with Melissa in it, check it out below and let me know what you think.  Later!

this is one of the dumbest lawsuits...kim is an attention whore and there is no doubt this will bring her publicity...

No you are not wrong and she need to get over herself. She will not win that lawsuit. I wouldn't have thought this Old Navy commercial was used a "Kim Kardashian" person at all. I agree, she is only famous because of that sex tape and she will milk it for every last cent. No talent. She only looks good and I figure that our society allows people like her, with looks, no talent, make it famous. What does this teach young kids? Oh wait, she is trying to sue because she hasn't enough talent to do something else that would earn enough money :)

That's laughable. They should outlaw brunettes just to make her happy /s

It astounds me the kinds of lawsuits that get filed in this country.  Who knew that you can sue because someone looks like you. 

Well said AIDY.  I'm just not a huge fan of these "celebrities" that made a name for themselves based on nothing.  I just don't understand why people are so fascinated by them.  

Interesting. I heard about a Kim Kardashian look-alike, didn't actually see what she looked like.
