Trash Talk: Jonathan Cheban Slams Jon Hamm
It’s Jonathan vs. Jon! Celeb publicist Jonathan Cheban, aka the guy that stands next to Kim Kardashian in photos sometimes, is coming to the defense of his meal ticket -- I mean BFF -- Kim Kardashian in her public battle with everyone’s favorite smooth operator, Jon Hamm. In a recent interview with Us Weekly in Miami Beach, FL, the mop-topped waste of space said, "I think Jon Hamm needs to just shut up and stop being such a mad man!"
Hey oh! Now, that’s really funny. "Mad Man" -- ‘cause Jon Hamm is the star of -- Mad Men. Do you get it?? That’s what I call a pun-tastic comment! Maybe Jonnyboy Cheban should rethink his career as a failed reality show star (he was featured on E!’s Spin Crowd which focused on the fast-paced world of PR and only ran for eight episodes in 2010) and head in the new direction of stand up!?
The controversy started when the beloved Mad Men star, 41, went off on Kimmy K. in an interview with ELLE UK, saying, "Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f-cking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture." After coming under fire, the Golden Globe winner later stated the comments weren't "personal" -- but he insisted they were, "accurate."
In the Us interview, the pun-maker added, "[Jon] needs to mind his own business, because Kim works hard. They do different things --it's a whole different world."
Uh ... yeah Kim Kardashian films herself getting her a$$hole bleached and lets the world see, while Jon Hamm is the lead on one of the most critically and universally acclaimed TV show’s of the past decade. So Jonathan, you are right: Kim and Jon definitely don’t do the same thing. The oh-so-handsome and talented Jon Hamm makes art; and Kim Kardashian makes me feel like the world is going to implode.
Cheban also boasted to Us, "Put Jon Hamm in a mall, and more people will go up to the people working at the Burger King than they will to him. Bring Kim to a mall and there will be a riot. They're in two different businesses. Kim's pop culture and what people like."
Burger King!? Jonathan, you are bragging about how great Kim is because of how many peeps wouldn’t recognize Jon at a fast food joint??? You are equating how to measure Kim Kardashian’s universally mocked life and Jon Hamm’s shinning career with how people who would recognize them at BURGER KING! ? So according to this idea, how many people recognize you at a mall is the barometer of a great career? How many people at Jonathan Cheban’s hypothetical mall (that Jon Hamm just happens to be chillin’ and illin’ at) would recognize Joe Biden, the Vice President of America? Not sure, but I don’t think AMC’s target audience for their multi Emmy-Award winning show is the patrons of a mall Burger King. If I stumbled into Kim, Joe or Jon after picking up the newest Twilight shirt at my local mall's Hot Topic, the only one I wouldn’t want to talk to is Kim Kardashian. I’ve already killed enough brain cells with too many vodka Diet Cokes – I don’t need to make myself any stupider.
Moronic people like Jonathan Cheban, with skewed views of fame and what is important, constantly amaze me. America’s fascination with pretty but worthless people doing stupid sh*t is why Jersey Shore is gearing up to film its sixth season. That show was funny for half a season and then it just made me sad about humans.
So back to the interview at hand: Cheban's also took a big dig at about Hamm's staying power. "It's a lot of work, and she's here to stay. Let's see where he is after Mad Men."
Oh very funny, tough guy. Where is Jon Hamm, the recent star of Sucker Punch, 30 Rock, Bridesmaids and Friends with Kids, going to be after Mad Men ends? How About: Still super famous, rich as sin and starring in a ton of projects. That’s my guess. Get real, fancy PR Man, I barely even remember your name by the end of this story …
Guess we know who won’t be coming to my Mad Men season five viewing party on Sunday night! But that’s good ‘cause What’s His Face – and his hair are NOT invited.
