How is this even possible? Where the hell is she shopping and what is she doing that would cause 350k in monthly charges on a credit card? Is she using it to buy houses?

Well, the bright side is.. We (Read TMZ) really tried hard to make Farrah Abrahams a "thing" and she came really close.. I think it was just two short weeks ago this tab was filled with dumb fabulous stories about her. TMZ was riddled with stories..

Now... Farrah who?

WE DID IT! SHE DIDN"T BECOME A "THING"!

Bespoke clothing would be the only way, I would think.  But even then, it'd be an effort; for example, a bespoke suit made by a Savile Row tailor would run you at the very least £5,000 or so, maybe up to £10 or £12k if you're using some super-expensive cashmere or silk fabric.  Add in for a few bespoke shirts, ties and a pair of bespoke shoes, and you've only spent maybe twenty grand.  I suppose it might be more expensive for womens' clothing, but still, to spend $350k per month you'd have to be really, really dedicated (even presuming she's flying to Paris or New York or wherever and not just taking a limo over to Beverly Hills)

And that sort of thing does take time to put together.  I looked into having a bespoke suit made (and quickly discovered I hadn't the money for it), and all of the tailors I asked said it would require a first measurement and a minimum of three subsequent fittings over five or six weeks.  So it's not like you can just spend the money all at once.

If there is validity to this claim, she may be next on the list of celebrities facing the wrath of the IRS. Someone compulsively spending 350k a month probably isn't making paying taxes on her income a high priority.

Here is a Gucci scarf. It is a square piece of cloth, 35" by 35". It costs $410.

Now imagine a woman like Kim Kardashian going into the Gucci store on Rodeo drive one Tuesday afternoon, and buying this like you and I would buy a pair of socks on a shopping spree. She might walk out of there with 3 dresses, a couple of hats, couple of scarves, a pair of shoes, another handbag, etc etc, and could drop $20k without even trying. And if she's really full of herself she might do this 2 or 3 times a week, at various shops of equal expense, if not more.

You'd think spending that kind of money she'd be able to find shoes and clothing that fit her properly. I'm not attacking her weight, just her lack of friends, taste, and/or mirrors to tell her that stuff doesn't look right. She and her family complain when people attack her weight, but she's dressing like a thin girl who has gained weight and is denial about it, not like a pregnant woman.

It's not as tacky a design as I would have imagined, but the very act of paying $410 for a scarf itself is tacky. You could probably find a similar looking scarf in a resell shop or maybe even a thrift shop for fairly cheap and chances are it would be slightly more tasteful (a similar design on a cheaper garment will likely be less busy, giving it more versatility). Having a nice clothing budget is one thing, but this is just over-the-top.

She made $18m last year. Assume she pays 50% in taxes (which I severely doubt its anywhere near that high), $350k/month still leaves her with $400k/month left over. Her accountant probably writes off all those clothes as a work expense.

Personally, I couldn't be with anyone with that kind of spending habit. Its a sign of shallowness to me.

Somebody has to buy 'em the first time. And versatility is something you worry about if you have or want a small wardrobe. When you have the money to burn, you can drop $400 on that "occasionally perfect" (to steal a marketing phrase from the world of beer) scarf, made by the best craftsmen and women in the world from the absolute best silk. They continue to have jobs, and we retain that knowledge.

Count me down at not giving two farks about this one if that's the kind of thing she's actually buying. Gucci scarfs support little old italian ladies. She could be buying cocaine, which supports columbian druglords and lots of people dying.

It's funny to imagine how forced and awkward dinner conversation between the four of them would be... Jay Z and Beyoncé and Kanye have each sold millions of albums and dramatically changed the face of music, and could talk about the industry. Kim K is a waddling, flat-footed wookie who got famous for getting farked on video by a minor rapper and then having her mother pimp out her and her sisters for a ton of reality crap.

It would be like Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith having dinner with Jamie Foxx, and having Jamie Foxx show up with Honey Boo Boo's mother as his date.

I recall a recent episode of Pop Culture Happy Hour in which guilty pleasures were the discussion of the hour. One of them brought up the recent incarnation of Kardashian reality TV and how Khloe, the bastard of the set, is the only sane/voice of reason in the entire lot. Then she played a couple of cut away clips that basically drove home "OMG Kim. She thinks that she can just run around Rodeo Drive and buy anything she wants. News flash Kim! Money isn't a renewable resource! You already owe a bunch of money as it is!"

So hearing this is no surprise... as I don't watch the show but new that there was some money issues  already. Let's hope that Khloe was also able to see enough beyond the horizon to hire a financial adviser and made a few investments.
