After years of being a talentless famewhore who hardly ever gave back, Kim Kardashian has been feeling a whole lot more charitable in recent weeks!
Following her quickie divorce and the public backlash that followed, Kimmie participated in a photo op around Thanksgiving to feed the poor homeless people of Los Angeles. Fast forward to today and Kimmie Kakes and pimpmomager Kris Jenner have orchestrated another publicity stunt to make Kimmie more likable.
According to PEOPLE, Kimmie Kakes and pimpmomma Kris are currently “giving back” in Haiti. Kim is said to be in the country with the We Advance charity group and actress Maria Bello, who co-founded the organization.
“She connected with Mario Bello and is there with Maria’s foundation and also with her mom,” a source close to Kim tells PEOPLE. “Her intention was always to take the end of the year to focus on some of the other things that are important to her and this trip was one.”
Hasn’t Haiti suffered enough with the earthquakes? No word yet on when Kris and Kimmie plan to release photos of her Haiti visit to the press! You know it’s coming.
image rehab charitable visit to Haiti is right on time because she is scheduled to host a New Year’s Eve party in Las Vegas. An invite for that is below. Tickets cost a mere $200 per person for general admission.
Moving on to Kim, 31, and her ex Reggie Bush, 26. According to new reports, the two have been talking again and are even considering getting back together.
“Reggie reached out to Kim via text shortly after she announced she was filing for divorce to make sure she was okay,” a Kardashian family friend tells Life & Style. “They’ve stayed in touch ever since, texting and talking. Kim was Reggie’s first love. He knows she’s hurting right now, but when the time is right, he’ll swoop in and take care of her.”
Sources add that since their breakup in March, 2010 (Reggie dumped Kim by the way) he has been pining for her and hoping for a chance to get her back. Riiiight. “He’s concerned about her; he’s making sure she’s holding it together,” shares a friend. “Reggie always knew that it wasn’t going to work [between Kim and Kris], so he’s been waiting and watching.”
Meanwhile, following Kris Humphries’ filing for an annulment on the basis of fraud, sources close to Kim now claim to OK! magazine that she has been crying every day since Kris’ filing. Poor Kimmie Kakes, perhaps she can use one of the bills from the $17 mil she made off the wedding to wipe away her tears.
“I saw her recently and she’s really shook up,” an unnamed relative tells Ok!. “The family is worried about how angry Kris is and how far he will go.”
The sources go on to
insult our intelligence insist that Kim’s tears go way beyond Kris damaging her brand. “Kim isn’t superhuman. People seem to have this idea that because she’s on TV, she’s some sort of robot,” says the insider. “She’s just been through this awful breakup and she’s hurting. Now what Kris is doing is making it hurt that much more. The truth is that she’s extremely emotional and very sensitive and she is having a very hard time dealing with all this.”
Above is a screen shot of a tweet made by Kim on Oct. 31, the same day she filed for divorce. And just two weeks ago she was tweeting away her excitement over the premiere of her E! show Kourtney and Kim Take New York, you know, the same show that chronicles the demise of her marriage. I’ll let you do the math!
Finally, Barbara Walters is revealing that people were very upset with her decision to include the Kardashians in her 10 Most Fascination People of 2011 — set to air Dec. 14.
“The whole idea of this program that we’ve been doing for 18 years is to pick people who have made an impact and whether you like or don’t like it the Kardashians were a controversial choice,” Barbara told the Hollywood Life. “We did Jersey Shore last year and no one objected. [The Kardashians] strike a different chord.”
Barbara was also asked if she thinks the Kardashians’ fame will last. “I really don’t know what the future is for the Kardashians,” she says. “What happens next in their future and life I can’t say.” Me thinks that Barbara’s nice way of saying NO!
