Last night the Kardashians celebrated the opening of their newest reality show premise—um, we mean DASH store—in New York's SoHo. Our sister site Racked NY has the scooparoo: "What we saw: Escalades; barking, very unhappy police officers; and hundreds (maybe thousands?) of chanting super fans (seriously?) cordoned off by various steel barricades—many carrying signs professing their devotion to whatever the Kardashians are. It was a mess, Spring Street was closed off, and we couldn't even see the store behind the velvet ropes, photo backdrops, tragic admirers and cops, cops, cops." [RNY]
