Reality TV to Hit Dallas City Hall Tomorrow as Khloe Kardashian Holds Toy Drive on Plaza

You wanna talk about a living Dallas City Hall Plaza, dig this: Several Friends of Unfair Park have dispatched this item from the blog of one Khloe Kardashian, now a Dallas resident courtesy her husband's trade to the Mavericks. And, yes, city officials confirm: Kardashian will indeed be holding a toy drive at City Hall tomorrow from noon to 2 p.m., for which all the proper permits have been obtained.

Promises Kardashian, who does much fund-raising for children's hospitals:
I will sign autographs, take photos, whatever you dolls want, as long as you have an unwrapped (still in the packaging though) toy for children of all ages (especially stuff for teens) to donate! For health purposes, we will not be accepting stuffed animals, or anything unpackaged for that matter, with the exception of books. In my past experience with this, I've found that fun card games and things the children can play with in bed always make the best presents.
City officials confirm: Camera crews will be in tow; so too much security. "They have security, and we have security," says Janis Burklund, head of the Dallas Film Commission. "We don't know what to expect in terms of turnout, but with people off work for the holidays, they might have time to show up. It's hard to tell." A media alert with further details, she says, is forthcoming; I'll update accordingly. Will certain elected officials be able to resist their turn in the spotlight? Highly doubtful. "I think it's nice for her to get involved in the community," says Burklund. "It'll all be good."

Update from City Hall at 5:58 p.m.: The event will be in the lobby. But, two rules: "The public will NOT be allowed to park in City Hall Garage for this event." And: "Individuals will not be allowed to cue up prior to 10 a.m."

Great activity,I'm sure many kids will be happy about this event.And they are already excited going to the place as they expected to get toys they wanted.

So no parking in the garage. Will people in line be allowed to camp in Pioneer Plaza?

So, we'll have the toy drive, and encourage people to come and donate, but we won't give them anywhere to park in order to do so.

Makes sense.

That'd be *queue. It's a tricky word, but I hope this was the Observer's mistake and not City Hall's.

Maybe it refers to the camera crew - no cue-ing until the cameras are rolling.

We at Children's Medical Center appreciate her gesture very much, guys. We're a non-profit hospital that takes zero tax money.. and all of our beds are full of kids who very much need something to take their mind off of the fact that they're spending Christmas in a hospital bed. We appreciate ALL of the people who donate to us at the holiday... and every day of the year.

I would appreciate her gesture if it was not so for her, oh--and the kids get something, too. Pure marketing strategy, so anyone coming after her for causing a scene and requiring TAX dollars to be spent on the cops and security at City Hall, can be accused of being anti-kid's presents.

Should have had it at Victory Park. Nobody there but pidgeons, and it is in her new neighborhood.

Lord, no, make her go away.

It is bad enough they fillm the fake "Cheaters" show in Dallas, now we have to endure her as a part of Dallas? Like I once heard about Dallas, "It is about 250 miles square, but only 6 inches deep." 

Yippee, we get to have more shallowness connected to Dallas.

"It is about 250 miles square, but only 6 inches deep."

the miles could be her, but the inches sure ain't Lamar ...

Any chance we can talk the whole Kardashian crew into using a convertible and exiting downtown on Elm street?

Sir, no. Just no.  (See that line, the one you just crossed? Don't do that.)

Too soon for a Kennedy assassination joke? Its been 50 years. Okay, how about someone talks the whole Kardashian crew into checking out Our American Cousin at Ford's Theatre with Mary Todd Lincoln?

What, too soon?

Can I make a joke about them booking passage on the Titanic yet?

Is this the Kardashian that is supposed to look like Chewbacca?

Toy Drive ' for the chilldrens ' = good for them.

She's a Reality Celebrity, don't care that much for them, but it's damn funny that the REAL celebrity in the family (Olympian, on the Wheaties box, etc) is the far-in-the-background Bruce Jenner.

Still waiting for the Mavs to sign Free Agent Kris Humphries ...

Cuban missed his chance to have all 66 games broadcast nationally.

Of course, it would have been Lifetime network ..

Should be a Toy Drive/DISD Drive/Dallas City Hall Drive and everything else those nuisances incompetent fools we elect into office need to balance fiscal budget. In good taste though, I am sort of happy Khloe is moving to Texas, as long as it’s not Kim, just saying.

I admire the real celebrities who will do charity work from the heart, not as a publicity stunt.  Turns what would be acts of goodwill into a circus act.

i'd like to see her get involved in the community without the reality camera crew

I don't understand why people care. her life is televised whether you agree with it or not. if you don't care, don't watch. there is so much content on television that people don't care about, but suddenly they get up in arms when some family that has traded in its privacy for cash has a TV show in which they may or may not act like the rest of the idiots in America would act, given the time and money. as others have said, they could be like Jersey Shore, Real World, etc and do absolutely nothing of value to broader society with their airtime, so this seems like a positive, on a very relative scale.

No, she is just what Dallas needs.  Who is repping for Dallas with the youth of America?  It is her camera crew that makes her so important.  It's a terrific marketing opportunity.  What do you care if a bunch of idiot kids watch?  They represent revenue, and Dallas is a celebrity starved town.  We don't have anyone seeking to garner the attention of everyone, save Jerry, Mark, politicos and preachers.  Khloe is just what this town needs.

Though, I really don't give a hoot.

Maybe so; I've never seen the show. Still, it beats what's usually at City Hall on Wednesdays: council meetings. I wonder where Khloe stands on flow control.

ScottsMerkin

she probably recommends Flowmax for control and depends in case of accidents

Can she design a bridge over the Trinity?

she could be a fabulous asset for those ends, so long as they aren't too contentious.  We need to get her big ass on a Mountain Bike.

From the little I've seen, her family has no official position on where or how the shit flows, as long as it's flowing and they're getting paid.

That said: It's toys for kids. Good for her. There are way worse things she could be doing with her inexplicable celebrity.

I hear Lamar's a sensitive guy. A happy Khloe means a happy Lamar, and that's better for the Mavs, right? So...yay Khloe?

ScottsMerkin

Lets give her and Lamar some love, they moved here, will be living in Dallas proper, spending money here, filming here, thereby giving the city more airtime, all very good things, and its all fre publicity.  And who cares if she wants to make a big production about chairty and fundraising, like joe said, she could be doing a lot worse things
