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.
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. sharp.
