Kim Kardashian Dates Richard Lugner — High Priced Escort

Written by , Posted in General

It’s no secret that a large part of celebrity cash comes from special appearances, especially because a star’s light will illuminate anything beside it, making for great promotion. But that cash comes at a cost, and the cost might be brand damage.

Kim Kardashian’s most recent special appearance involves billionaire Richard Lugner, who paid Kardashian to be his date for the Vienna Opera Ball. As part of her appearance, she attended a press conference in front of his Austrian city mall. She’s rumored to receive $500,000 for the appearance.

This brings me to my point. If you’re getting paid to be a man’s date for the evening, aren’t you just a high-priced escort? Sure we can obviously assume she won’t exchange sexual favors for the payout, but it’s still a date for cash. To quote Tim Gunn, “sometimes you spend so long in the crazy house, you stop smelling the sh*t.”
