As a 56 year old woman I have enjoyed your magazine for many years. I was particularly intrigued by one sentence in your column in this month’s issue when you were discussing the positive experience you had changing your diet based on the research of Ms. Recitas….”The biotin from the flax has made my hair stop falling out”. I have been struggling with this for several months (probably more but it has become so much more noticeable to me) and am getting tired of hearing “that’s what happens after menopause”, “nothing you can do about it”, “maybe you should look into a wig”..trust me it is not that bad. I am going to my doctor for blood work to rule out anything serious. Anyway…how did you consume the flax that had the biotin?!
Really? REALLY? I open up a copy of More, a mediocre magazine at best, and am subjected to an article about Kris Jenner? A woman who whores out her entire family (and herself), inflicting them on the American public in ever increasing doses? What was the point of this interview? Is the reader supposed to view Jenner as a successful businesswoman? As a woman who, in reinventing her sorry life, is to be regarded as a model for female entrepreneurs? A woman who pussywhips her husband and pimps out her children as an exemplar of what women can do when they put their minds to things? Incredible. I am appalled and disgusted, and will NOT be renewing my subscription to this trashy, insistently poorly done, unintentionally and ridiculously retro magazine. I couldn’t get the current issue into the trash, where it belongs, fast enough.
I opened my latest issue looking forward to a small island of sanity to read. Only to find you were 'celebrating' Mom Kardashian. As a parent of a 20 year old daughter, the 'K' girls are the antithesis of what I want my daughter to grow up to be. They have no real talent - love the SNL spoofs of them and their whiny voices. They gravitate to men with lots of money. They are exhibitionists, complete with sex videos. Mom is 'pimping' out her girls for the dough with the emphasis on how they look not what kind of people they are. After the great article on Christy Turlington, and how motherhood has changed her life, you basically could have wrote a story about a women who runs a brothel and I would have been more interested in her perspective and views because the madam story would be honest. Mrs. K tries to sell herself as a mom/business woman. Truth is she is just selling her girls as a commodity. She can proud of making her girls media whores. Let's not forget Mrs. K former husband was friends with OJ, a psychopath, who luckily is now in jail. If he was out, he would be trying to lay all of the girls, and I can't say that any of them would say no. He'd have money and influence which is the main family value in the 'K' family. Mom K would be happy with the publicity. In these hard economic times, to highlight such a valueless family and such poor examples of feminine accomplishment, is reprehensible. I won't be renewing my subscription. I will be forwarding this letter to your advertisers. I am so sick of seeing this dysfunction family showing up on TV and print.
As a regular reader of More magazine I appreciate the grown-up, but playful, tone to your articles and reports. Yet I was surprised and disappointed by Selling the Kardashians (July/August). To promote your family members is one thing, but to sell them is quite another. The mindless, over-the-top explosion of the Kardashian women on the cultural scene seemed like more of the usual exhibitionist trash that’s come to dominate the media. But to learn that their mother, Kris Jenner, is behind it all is nothing short of exploitation. Interviewer Amanda Robb all but drools over every diamond-studded utterance from the wanton Jenner who sees no shame in racking up millions by encouraging her daughters to play potty-mouthed tramps in public. That More magazine seems to think this all okay suggests a lack of good judgment and is a disservice to your readers.
