A Kardashian -- one time name of an untalented (Los Angeles, CA, Earth) family who for some unknown reason found a way to broadcast themselves on popular media outlets. It was a short lived phenomena that introduced a new term into many languages; "A Kardashian." The term means something you don't really want, but was forced upon you. e.g. a holiday gift (sweater) from your hipster aunt that you really don't want. An example of proper use would be, "I wanted some sweet cash from my aunt, but I got a kardashian."
