KIM KARDASHIAN, ROSE PARADE FLOAT? GLENDALE CITY COUNCILMAN ARA NAJARIAN SUGGESTS REALITY STAR

The City of Pasadena has already chosen their royal court for the
2013 Rose Parade, but another Southern California city could raise
the stakes by inviting queen bee Kim Kardashian to sit on their Rose
Parade float.

Glendale City Councilman Ara Najarian proposed inviting Kardashian
to sit atop the city's Rose Parade float during a council meeting
Tuesday, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Kardashian, arguably the queen of reality TV, keeps the City of
Glendale close to her heart, as it's home to the largest number of
Armenians outside of Armenia.

Proud and outspoken about her Armenian heritage, Kardashian's PSA
and tweets about the controversial Armenian genocide have endeared
her to Najarian, who invited her to be his honorary chief of staff
when she expressed interest in running for mayor of Glendale in 2017.

But besides love of the homeland, Najarian seems to have a more
practical reason for inviting Kardashian to participate in the
Rose Parade.

"One or two words from Kim Kardashian are worth hundreds of thousands
of advertising dollars," he said during the city council meeting.

Fellow councilman Dave Weaver challenged Najarian's idea, reports
the Times, saying that a local high school student would foster
"more community involvement."

If Kardashian does accept the honor, she might have to pull an
all-nighter. She's reportedly scheduled to appear at the 1 OAK
Nightclub at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas for New Year's
Eve, and the kick-off time for the New Year's Day parade is 8 a.m.
