Reality Weekly Sets Bar Low

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new low in the magazine industry. Reality Weekly, a magazine dedicated to reality TV and its “stars,” launched Wednesday. WWD reports that the magazine is $1.79 an issue and features the queen of reality TV, Kim Kardashian, on the debut cover.

What’s inside? A weekly column from Victoria Gotti, contributions from Simon Cowell and “exclusives” from West Coast Editor Omarosa. There’s also sections titled “Fights of The Week” and “Hottest Shots.” But that’s not all! There will surely be more crap.

We all have American Media Inc. to thank for blessing us with this new publication. However, if it does well, maybe we should all thank/blame ourselves.
