When he was drafted in late April, Robert Griffin III was about to become very rich, and very well known. And that’s more than good enough for Kim Kardashian.
The woman bent on ruining the existence of every man she touches crossed paths with RG3 shortly after the Redskins called his name and made him this year’s second overall pick. Down the street “30 Rock” was doing a live taping of its season finale, and after he was done with his 37th interview of the evening, Griffin caught the west coast taping that started at 11:30 p.m. ET.
When he sat down, the world’s most famous
ass person for being famous was a few seats over. The show’s executive producer Jack Burditt was beside Kardashian, and during an appearance on the Rich Eisen Podcast he described Kardashian’s inquiries and her behavior as the fembot predator stalked her latest prey.
From the D.C. Sports Bog:
“She sat next to me while we were watching the show on the monitor and RGIII is a few seats down, and during the commercial break she starts asking me questions about him,” Burditt said on the podcast. “Like, ‘Now he’s a football player, right?’ I’m like, yeah, yeah, yeah. And [Kardashian asks] ‘And he just…something big happened, right?’ And I’m like, well yeah, he just was the No. 2 overall pick tonight. [Kardashian asks] ‘And what team?’ Washington. [Kardashian asks] ‘What’s Washington?’ Redskins. She goes, ‘I don’t know much about football, but, so what’s his deal?’ And I’m thinking, you stay away from him. This is a nice young man.”
RG3 is engaged, but that’s just a minor detail for Kardashian (any Kardashian). But what’s especially surprising about this little exchange is that she knew nothing–nothing–about the NFL, even after a long relationship with Reggie Bush and a brief encounter of the sexual kind with Miles Austin.
Fine, she’s not an NFL fan. That’s permissible, I guess. She’s allowed to not know the draft was that evening, although even that’s debatable because I dunno, maybe she would have noticed some increased foot traffic a few doors down at Radio City Music Hall. But to have no idea what the Redskins are? That’s pretty poor form, Kim.
Thankfully, Burditt blocked this blitz. It may have been the fiercest and most deadly pressure Griffin would face all season from an opposing man hunter.
