Well, there goes the neighborhood! I'm sorry to let the good people of Bel Air that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are so eager to live in their zip code that no amount of money can convince them otherwise. I guess they don't really need the money…
As you know, the couple spent $9 million on a mansion in January, and rumors immediately started swirling around that they were going to turn around and sell it. Not so. They can't wait to borrow a cup of sugar from Jennifer Aniston, I'm sure!
Here's a question for you…given the opportunity, would you rather spend a day with the peeps from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, engaging in their small town (and often gross) shenanigans or spend a week with those Kardashian Jenners, traveling to promotional gigs around the world and being treated to overpriced tiny rapper inspired wardrobes? I'll give you my answer later in this post.
The truth is, both families have their fair share of haters and media backlash, but they couldn't be more different. One group is constantly looking to increase its visibility and find more lucrative gigs, while the other dynamic happened to feed their five-year-old pixie sticks and enter her in pageants. Now, I am NOT condoning amping up a child on sugar and go-go juice so she can twirl around stage in a dress that costs more than your monthly income; however, one crew seeks out fame at every turn, and the other is dealing with the effects of having notoriety fall in their laps. It's not the same, I don't care how you spin it!
The reality hoegul, who on the most recent episode of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami was just lambasting and berating sister Kourtney Kardashian for putting her small children before the demands of the Kardashian dynasty, has just announced that she too would like to abandon reality TV for her personal life!
In a recent interview with DuJour Magazine, Kim announced her intentions to quit Keeping Up With The Kardashians after season 9, which is due to begin filming soon and will air in the fall. Kim says Kanye encouraged her decision to leave reality TV, or what she calls "the best family movie ever."
Remember how just the other day I was writing about a source saying Khloe Kardashian Odom was getting axed from the X Factor (even after a professional hosting expert called her "awkward")? If so, do you also recall yesterday when Kim Kardashian promised to be more private going forward? Well, guess what? Apparently neither of those things are happening!
Of course, with "sources" and "insiders" you can never be too sure which side of the story is true. However, Kim flat out told a magazine that she wanted to keep more things to herself…perhaps she was only referring to things that pertain to herself. Obviously, she's more than happy to talk all about her family members' business!
Sure, Kim Kardashian is super annoying, self-absorbed, and mind-numbingly vapid, but she sure does post some entertaining pictures on her Instagram. Case in point? The picture above, which she aptly captioned "Bo Derek braids." Let's discuss for a moment, shall we? Ignoring the fact that Bo Derek is likely extremely insulted (and rightfully so), I am so distracted by her make-up. And does that ring say "couture?" Anything but…she looks like she belongs on Solid Gold. Even Kanye West is so embarrassed that he has to hide his face. Oddly enough, I am kind of feeling his gold studded plaid flannel. I know, I know. It's probably just the only thing in the picture I can slightly compliment.
I've got some more Kimmie K. pictures for you after the jump…as well as an update with Kim's divorce proceedings with Kris Humphries. It's neverending. Happy weekend, y'all!
Oh, those krazy Kardashian sisters. If it's not one thing, it's another with that group. Luckily, this go-round, Khloe Kardashian Odom is garnering some positive hype for her reality star status and social media prowess. That's a plus, right?
Unfortunately, Kim Kardashian hasn't had anything positive news surrounding her in ages, and this gossip is no different. Kim and boyfriend Kanye West peeved an entire airplane full of common folk after accepting some preferential (and likely illegal!) treatment from an American Airlines employee. That doesn't sound good at all!
Sometimes I feel like if I ever hear the words Kim Kardashian again I might vomit. I guess I'm in the wrong line of work then, right?
The latest snafu in the never-ending divorce between Kim and husband of a second Kris Humphries, is that Kim's lawyer, Laura Wasser, accuses the NBA player of making threats to expose her reality shows as fake to get money in the divorce settlement.
If you recall, Kris who was villainized on Kourtney & Kim Take New York (which coincided to Kim's divorce filing), decided to examine other Kardashian shows featuring their relationship, such as Keeping Up With The Kardashians to prove she married (and divorced) him as a publicity stunt and their marriage was a made-for-TV fraud on Kim's end.
Well this isn't sitting well with the infamous Kardashian derriere!
Just because Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have announced that their baby won't be making its debut courtesy of E!, don't expect that to mean they want little Kimye, Jr. to have some semblance of a normal life. I'm embarrassed to say that I fell under that fallacy (just a tad, tiny, wee bit…).
Don't get me wrong. When a couple spends countless hours and photo ops trying to recreate their own version of a famous statute of Jesus (please click here and take note of how unimpressed the bystanders seem!), I am not expecting their kid to attend public school and play rec soccer at the local YMCA. However, in light of today's Kimye gossip, the child won't have time to play soccer/t-ball/ultimate frisbee because he or she will be spending the majority of time jetting back and forth across the globe to multiple houses. Oh, excuse me. Mansions.
