Mercury News is reporting that the wealthy New York social scene is just as stupid, pretentious, judgmental and trashy as anyone who’s seen an episode of Gossip Girl can expect. A new book called Kushner Inc.: Greed. Ambition. Corruption by author Vicky Ward claims that model, Taylor Swift’s one-time BFF, coder, and wife of Joshua Kushner Karlie Kloss was not good enough for the Kushner family. You know who was good enough? Ivanka Trump. Let’s get into this upper-class nonsense, shall we?
According to Vicky, the Kushners hated Karlie. She and Josh started dating in 2012 but apparently the Kushner family refused to meet with her because they thought she was trash:
“For years, people told me, the whole family spoke horribly about Kloss behind her back. A family friend referred to her as the ‘lingerie model’.”
When Joshua and Karlie first got together, Aaron Dell–former editor of the New York Observer which brother Jared Kushner used to own–says that Jared told him: “Don’t worry. The family is going to take care of that. We’re not very happy about him dating a shiksa. We’re hoping he’ll move on.” Jared allegedly also told Dell that Karlie wasn’t “that smart.”
The Kushners supposedly didn’t love that Karlie wasn’t Jewish, but you know who they didn’t care wasn’t Jewish? Ivanka. She “was a Trump” which apparently meant something positive to the Kushner family. They saw her as an heir to a real-estate empire, and she had attended an Ivy League school (I’m sure she did) and Karlie was just some backwoods Missouri girl who didn’t even go to college.
After Donald Trump became President, the Kushners’ love for the Trump family only swelled as they were seen as a way out of the Kushners’ shady past. In 2004 Josh’s dad, Charles Kushner, was convicted of 18 counts of tax evasion, making illegal campaign contributions and witness tampering and ended up serving 14 months in federal prison. After their daughter-in-law became part of the First Family, Charles saw this as an opportunity, despite being a longtime Democrat:
“The Kushners, it seemed had finally got the recognition Charlie felt they had long deserved… Maybe, thanks to the ascension of Jared and Ivanka into the White House, Charlie would then get a presidential pardon and exorcise the demons from his past.”
Charles got serious about having Josh dump Karlie, allegedly telling him:
“Josh, we expect you to do the right thing… The person you are with is not the right person.”
Well Josh decided to say “Fuck you” to his pretentious, corrupt family and he married Karlie anyway. She converted to Judaism to make them happy but it didn’t do shit-all for the mother, Seryl Kushner, who considers Karlie “her biggest failure.”
Can you imagine looking at the Trumps and thinking: “What authentic stand up business people”? He went bankrupt six times… But then again, this was from a dude who pulled a Joe Giudice special and served two years for it. So I guess this is a case of Real recoginizing Real… or the evil opposite version of it. Trash recognizing Trash? That’s it.
