Is Kim Kardashian Planning to Run for Mayor?

In an unaired clip from Khloe & Lamar, Kim tells her sister that she plans to enter the 2017 mayoral election in Glendale, Calif.

Kim Kardashian has lofty plans to expand her current dominance over the worlds of fashion, reality TV and questionable romantic choices into the realm of politics. That's right, the 31-year-old reality star claims that she's going to run for mayor of Glendale, Calif.!

Don't worry, she's not going to be the Golden State's next Clint Eastwood just yet (he served as mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif., from 1986 to 1988). In an unaired clip from season 2 of Khloe & Lamar, Kim reveals to her sister Khloe that she aims to be Glendale's mayor by 2017.

"I decided I'm going to run for the mayor of Glendale," she says in the video, adding that she needs to wait five years to do so because "you have to have full residency in Glendale."

Khloe clearly doesn't take her sister seriously at first, quipping back, "I'm going to be mayor of Dallas!" (We all know how that turned out.) Undaunted, Kim reiterates her commitment to the idea.

"But for real, (close friend) Noelle (Keshishian)'s going to head my campaign," she says. "It's going to be in, like, five years for Glendale. So I have to buy a house there. You have to have residency there. So Noelle and I are looking into all the requirements, and she's going to help me with my campaign."

Why Glendale, you ask? "Because it's like Armenian town," explains Kim, who is of Armenian descent. And, indeed, Glendale is home to the third largest Armenian community in the world (outside of Armenia, of course).

Is Kardashian ready for this? Are we ready for this? Probably not, so we're grateful she gave us five years to prepare ourselves for this life-changing event. But, hey, if Arnold Schwarzenegger can be a governor for eight years, Kardashian just might end up surprising us.
