Kim Kardashian just never stops, does she? The ultimate famewhore, who really defines the term with her desperateness, is now trying to nab a slew of A-List friends thanks to her fauxlationship with megastar Kanye West.
The NY Daily News is reporting that Kim is desperate to get on Beyoncé‘s good side. Kim flew to London yesterday to accompany Kanye during his concert with Jay-Z. And Kim’s motivation for the five-day trip has nothing to do with being a supportive girlfriend! “Kim wants to travel everywhere with Kanye, but she’s also trying to do whatever she can to get close to Beyoncé,” a source reveals. “So, if Bey and Jay are going, she’s going.”
Kim would “live and breathe to hang out with Beyoncé,” the insider continues. Sadly for Kim, Beyoncé continues to have no interest in a relationship with the reality hoegul – and neither do the rest of Kanye’s A-lister friends. Poor Kim was even, allegedly, banned from the recent Met Costume Institute Gala because Anna Wintour didn’t want her ilk infiltrating the classy event.

A rep for Kim, of course, denies that Kim dropped everything to jet to London and suck-up to Beyoncé, claiming Kim has been planning this trip to promote her perfume and do press for a year. “It’s a coincidence that the concerts are at the same time,” she adds.
So, was there ever any question that Kim was dating Kanye for the perks? Kim’s people claim absolutely not; insisting Kim is “very into Kanye” but “playing her cards supersafe right now.”
retirement plan daughter’s decision to jump into a serious relationship before her divorce trial has even started rolling is Kris Jenner. The pimpmomager who would do anything for a buck, claimed Kim’s new paycheck boyfriend makes her happy.
“First and foremost, she didn’t want to disappoint anybody [with the wedding to Kris Humphries]. She feels horrible about what happened. She’s still going and struggling through that whole process. That will be finalized sooner or later,” Kris said on the TODAY show. “But her priority right now is work and she’s in London today launching a new fragrance. She just doesn’t stop. So she’s full speed ahead.”
“There’s nothing crazy going on. They’re just having a really good time,” she said of Kimye. “My kids are really smart about timing and all that. So she knows what she’s doing.” I bet she does… she’s timing it perfectly so her divorce trial and all the accusations of fraud are obscured by the media’s fascination with her new relationship to a huge star. Good going, Krim (that’s Kris J meets Kim)
Moving on, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has found herself in the center of a legal mess, yet again! This time over an ad she did for Skechers Shape-ups footwear!
Kim signed a one-year endorsement deal with the company which claimed their shoes promoted toning and weight loss. Sadly the FTC begged to differ. Their investigation found those claims bogus and Skechers was ordered to pay $40M for their so-called fraudulent claims – and anyone who purchased them is eligible for a refund.
A rep for Skechers told TMZ they stand by the claims that the shoes work, and they do not agree with the FTC’s ruling despite cutting them a settlement check. Additionally they will continue to market the shoe as a “toning” shoe which they are allowed to do.
Kim claims she signed onto endorse the product because they worked for her. She is reportedly telling friends and family that upon signing with the company she used the shoes significantly and they definitely toned her well known derriere, as well as the back of her legs.
Kim’s deal with the company ended in January, and since learning about the new research she has conflicting feelings about shilling them for a paycheck. Why do I not believe her? Apparently once learning that the claims of the shoe’s success may be false, she stopped promoting them. After she was paid, of course.
While Kim wouldn’t endorse the product again, she does say she might still use them because unlike her marriage, they aren’t complete BS.
You can see Kim’s Skechers commercial below – it’s quite classy, of that I can assure you.
