Does Kim Kardashian have her eye on Robert Griffin III?
This sordid tale comes to us from Jack Burditt, the executive producer and writer of “30 Rock,” who recently visited “The Rich Eisen Podcast,”which you can listen to here.
Kardashian was on the “30 Rock” set in April to film the season finale of the NBC sitcom. RG3 was on hand to watch the taping just hours after being selected by Washington. Going down a road we’ve traveled before, Kim took one look at the pro athlete and was intrigued.
"She sat next to me, while we were watching the show on the monitor," Burditt said, "and RG3 is a few seats down, and during the commercial break, she starts asking me questions about him. Like, ‘Now, he’s a football player, right?’ I’m like, yeah, yeah. (Kim says,) ‘And he just … something big happened, right?’ I’m like, well, yeah, he just was the No. 2 overall pick tonight. (She asks) ‘And what team?’ … Washington. (She asks) ‘What’s Washington?’ … Redskins. She goes, ‘I don’t know much about football, but, so what’s his deal?’ And I’m thinking, ‘You stay away from him. This is a nice young man.’ "
Burditt warned Eisen: “Her inner alarm was going off.”
I love how she’s dated two players in the NFC, one in the NFC East, and she doesn’t know who the Washington Redskins are. They are taking quite a leap in this story assuming that when she asks “What’s Washington?” that she’s asking about the football team.
They are also taking a leap in assuming that she wants to date him. Maybe she’s just asking because it was big in the news. It was the night of the draft. But I guess why would someone who doesn’t know what the Washington football team is called would care about the draft? But you never know. Ok, that was my benift of the doubt disclaimer.
My favorite line is, ”something big happened, right?”. In my mind I hear, “Cameras? Media? Attention?”.
