Kim Kardashian Meet & Greet at Sherway Gardens
As announced here recently Reality Television Star/Model/Entrepreneur/Heiress Kim Kardashian was to do a Meet & Greet at Sherway Gardens in Toronto's west-end today.  The session to promote FUSIONBEAUTY products for which she is the Spokesmodel, was to last from 4:30 to 6:00 PM. Thinking I had sufficient time, I arrived at 5:20 hoping to catch glimpse of the Celebutante, who sure put the DASH in Kardashian.  You could hear a pin drop against the backdrop of Elevator Music by the Food Court area of the upscale Mall where the event was set-up.

Now I do know she was actually present as there was talk and photographic proof of Cake and Festivities in celebration of her 30th Birthday.  I only wish someone saved me a slice.  A sliver even!

It's rare that a Meet & Greet ends 40-plus minutes early.  This could only mean one or more of the following:
  • The event was not promoted sufficiently
  • Holding the event in the City's west-end made it difficult for many to make it out
  • Kardashian zipped through 200 fans in record time
  • Kardashian had an unexpected emergency and had to leave early
  • The event's Tuesday 4:30 PM time slot proved inconvenient for fans
  • Torontonians are too frugal to spend the minimum $38 requirement on FUSIONBEAUTY products at Shopper's Drug Mart to get the requisite Wristband to meet Kardashian
  • Torontonians don't believe in the power of FUSIONBEAUTY
  • Perhaps Kardashian just doesn't have that X Factor that draws large crowds of Torontonians
You decide.

  1. I'm sorry Will, it's my fault that you missed her. I showed up with my DVD copy of "Kim Kardashian Superstar" to get signed and when she saw it she cancelled the meet and greet early and left. ;)
