Khloe Kardashian might be taking her support for Rob Kardashian just a little too far while he competes on Dancing with the Stars. So is she encouraging cheating?
Rob is probably one of the luckiest contestants on the show, in spite of the fact that he was more than a little stiff during his first performance (and he had the goofiest look on his face). But it’s not natural dancing ability that makes it possible for the reality show star to go far on the showÂ—it’s his famous sisters, who are pros when it comes to family promotion (they got it from their mother).
Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian were all in the crowd to watch Rob’s attempt to redeem his family name (Lamar Odom was also there, while Kris Humphries was conspicuously absent). Kim Kardashian was the third contestant eliminated when she competed on the show in 2008, and Rob hopes to do better than his sister.
Back when Kim was competing on Dancing with the Stars, Keeping Up With The Kardashians had only been on TV for a year, so she and her sisters hadn’t amassed the fan following they have today. So now that they have it, they’re definitely making sure that they use itÂ—they’ve been tweeting like crazy since before the show aired to get votes for their brother.
But Khloe Kardashian might have gone just a little bit too far when she tweeted this:
If you go to ABC.com and put in a zip code like “90210” you can vote from ALL over the world! #VoteForRob RT #Leggo.
It’s great that she’s so supportive of her brother, but it’s also just a bit unfair that she’s asking people who haven’t even seen him dance to vote for him by lying about where they live. Then again, the show is in part a popularity contest (Bristol Palin?), so perhaps it really doesn’t matter where votes come from. But that’s not all Khloe did to help her brotherÂ—she also heckled Bruno from the audience when he criticized Rob’s performance (to be fair, Kim Kardashian’s 19 for her first performance topped Rob Kardashian’s 16, the same score as Nancy Grace).
So what do you thinkÂ—will Rob’s tweeting sisters help him stay on Dancing with the Stars longer than he should?
