First sign of a falling star or just bad timing?
That was the question when Kim Kardashian's appearance at Charlotte, North Carolina's new Club Hush drew less than 50 people on a night most of the country's attention was focused on the Democratic National Convention and the MTV Video Music Awards.
The 31-year-old was flanked by fellow reality star (and flour bombing victim) Jonathan Cheban, fashion designer Rachel Roy and a pal, in a promotional appearance Thursday dubbed as the after-party for the convention, which was also held in Charlotte.
She cryptically tweeted, "It's that kinda night!" and linked to a shot of a half-full (or empty) drink glass.
After two hours, she left the unhappening get-together.
Sources on the scene said the house band's observation that "This place is empty" irked the reality star, as part of her income comes from club appearances.
CNN blogsite, PoliticalTicker, also revealed that Kimmy's "official DNC after party" wasn't even listed on the official convention website and that the number for Hush nightclub listed in the yellow pages is disconnected.
