The Kardashians Threatened

They're Old Bags!

Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian are a bunch of purse-stealing fakers -- at least according to a handbag designer, who claims the new Kardashian Kollection knocked off one of her signature bags.

Designer Monica Botkier fired off a cease and desist letter on Thursday to Sears -- the retailer currently hocking the Kardashian line -- insisting the $94 faux leather bag inarguably resembles her $600 Trigger Clyde Satchel.

According to Women's Wear Daily, Sears promptly pulled the KK bag from its website.

You see the wares, so we gotta ask ...

The Kardashians are a pack of dumb whores. None of them are educated and intelligent. Of course they ripped stufff off. In case you forget this is not the first time they've been accused of ripping off someone else's ideas.

that's the fashion industry. "knocking off" more expensive designs and putting it in ****ty stores like Sears. The Kardashian's are always the first people to go out and sue someone for whatever ridiculous reason. I consider this karma.

Hilarious! Everyone, except those little teeny bopper twits KNOW these bimbos can't come up with anything on their own. Too bad the designer couldn't sue them for millions, I'd like to see a little sweet justice, they're nothing but greedy pigs! What happened to that 75 million credit card scam lawsuit? hummmm......

The Botkeir bag is a rip-off of Balenciaca and Prada.

These are some of the ugliest purses EVER. As a matter of fact, many purses out today are downright atrocious looking. Whatever happened to just simple elegance? Whether a bag is big or small or medium, simplicity is the most beautiful. Sometimes I wonder if these designers are smoking crack. I know a lot of other women feel the same way.

purses are useful goods according to US copywrite and therefor not protected under copywrite, sears was dumb for removing it and monica's lawyers even more stupid for writing the letter which has zero chance of being upheld. Idiots all around, except for the Kardashians who are going to make tons off of the sale of this handbag because of the publicity.
