There's someone who doesn't know who Kim Kardashian is?!

As impossible as it may sound, it's true!

In an interview with New York magazine's Vulture, actress Edie Falco discusses the "frightening" take-over of reality television and admits to not being familiar with the Armenian princess we all know and love.

She says:

"Like, forgive me, I don't know if you're friends with her—but who the hell is Kim Kardashian?"


She goes on to add, "Like, who are these people and why are they famous and why are they advertising things and being asked their opinions about things? I just don't understand what these people did to be in a position of having everyone ask their opinions about stuff."

However, not being in the whole reality-TV loop has worked out fine for the Nurse Jackie star, who just received a Tony nomination for her role as Bananas Shaughnessy, a schizophrenic Queens woman, in the Broadway play House of Blue Leaves.

Congrats, Edie! But seriously, if you have some downtime, Keeping Up With the Kardashians is really entertaining.
