Jonathan Cheban Defends Kim Kardashian: “She’s Here To Stay”

Celebs Get Twitpic-Happy
A few famous faces need to cool their Twitter jets.
What a good friend that Jonathan Cheban is, sticking up for his buddy, Kim Kardashian.

The publicist/aspiring reality star said a mouthful at Ocean Drive’s cover party for Nicole Richie in Miami Tuesday night (March 20th).  “I think Jon Hamm needs to just shut up and stop being such a mad man!” Cheban griped.  “He needs to mind his own business, because Kim works hard. They do different things –it’s a whole different world.”  

Cheban would have been safe, had he stopped right there.  Unfortunately, the gum flapper carried on.

“Put Jon Hamm in a mall, and more people will go up to the people working at the Burger King than they will to him,” Cheban told Us Weekly.  “Bring Kim to a mall and there will be a riot. They’re in two different businesses. Kim’s pop culture and what people like.”

The icing on the cake?  Cheban’s insistance that Kardashian will remain relevant much longer than Hamm.  “It’s a lot of work, and she’s here to stay. Let’s see where he is after Mad Men.”

O B K B, Cheban.
