We’re all being played. I know it’s hard to admit, seeing as how we’re intelligent people, but it’s true. A typical manipulator would play their audience like, oh, a violin. But a true master goes deeper. They make their audience convince themselves that they’re in on the con—a step ahead of the grift—only to find out that they’re not being played like a violin at all. Because, though they may look and sound just like violin—typical audiences of typical celebrity misdirection—they are actually being treated like special, secret, melody-makers playable by a single artist. And that artist holding the bow is none other than Kris Jenner.
Last night, Rob turned the wild, pseudo-triumphant narrative of the past week—one in which he escapes the clutches of his famous family and gets revenge by dating one of their sworn enemies as a way of improving his own emotional and physical well-being—on its head with two adoring photos of his mother. More specifically, two photos of his mother’s hands. The very hands that pull every string of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
His two captions were:
“Hey mama [eggplant][eggplant][eggplant][eggplant][heart eyes][heart eyes][heart eyes]”
“hey pretty mama [heart eyes][heart eyes][heart eyes] @krisjenner.”
But before you go and start thinking the eggplant suggests some kind of Oedipus complex, take a look at a caption Rob himself left on The Shade Room’s coverage of the photos:
We think we know where this is headed, and then we get eggplant soup.
To make matters worse, there’s this rumor in Blind Gossip.
To quote Jezebel’s Managing Editor Kate Dries: “At what point will this whole thing make me faint?”
