Kim Kardashian wants to be the one and only of her kind. She claims the title of beautiful long brunette hair with big eyes and curly eyelashes. Today she has filed a lawsuit against Old Navy and it's parent company The Gap, Inc. to stop using her "look-alike" to advertise the brand and help sell clothing.

To be more exact, the lawsuit claims that consumers might be confused with Kim's actual endorsements like her clothing store, shoe line, and fragrance. Part of it states that she "has invested substantial time, energy, finances and entrepreneurial effort in developing her considerable professional and commercial achievements and success, as well as in developing her popularity, fame, and prominence in the public eye."

What Kim is expecting out of this lawsuit is unspecified damages and that a federal judge stops Old Navy from using her "look-alike" in future ads. The name of Kim's "look-alike" is Melissa Molinaro whose name was not used in the lawsuit. She appeared in Old Navy commercial "Super C-U-T-E" that aired in February of this year. That commercial has been viewed over two million times on Old Navy's YouTube page.

Melissa Molinaro has her own identity besides the Kim Kardashian "look-alike". Her resume includes pop singer, actress, choreographer, and model. Some television shows she appeared on were Making the Band and Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll, talk about real talent! In regards to this little controversy over the commercial she posted on Twitter, "Were (sic) still talking about this. Some people have too much time on (their) hands."

Hmmm, is that true Kim? Despite you being such a busy body with all your endorsements, shows, public appearances, not to mention WEDDING, you have time to file this lawsuit. Talk about some multi-tasking!!! But Kim K, you do need to chillax! You can share the spotlight with other beautiful girls can't you?! Melissa never changed her looks to look like you, you just have a resemblance...CHILLAX!!!
