Kim Kardashian has a new fan. Don't worry…it's not me! The reality maven recently came under fire for a series of tweets about the discord in the Middle East. While I think that the backlash Kim received for trying to be nice (even I have to face the fact that she was being genuine…and that's hard to admit), she is at least finding solace in the comments of fellow (less famous) reality stars. Riding coattails much, Shahs of Sunset?
Reza Farahan, the openly gay and amazing breakout star of Bravo's latest hit, is coming to Kimmie Kakes aid in light of her attempt at international diplomacy. After getting death threats for her Israel and Palestine tweets, Kim is planning a goodwill trip to Kuwait and Bahrain. She heard they have awesome nightclubs. Reza thinks her Middle Eastern promotional tour is the greatest idea ever. Seriously, dude, you need to play it a bit cooler. After all, your show has already had a successful season with another on the way. No need to salivate over Kim like you don't know what it's like to be slightly famous.
I could barely type that title with a straight face. Yes, you read that right. Kim Kardashian is heading off to the Middle East next week for two Millions of Milkshakes store openings and plans to meet up with local political leaders to get some schooling on deep issues. Like bigger issues than which self-portrait to send out on Instagram to your five million adoring followers. Or sharing how awesome your side-part is today. Or the dolphin in your backyard.
Kim is heading to Kuwait and Bahrain next week and is hoping to learn a little about the unrest in the Middle East – in between her appearances at Millions of Milkshakes. A "source close to Kim" (on TMZ this is code for Kris Jenner) tells the site, "Kim wants to be as informed as possible … so she can use her celebrity to help those in need and raise awareness about important issues in the area."
It's been said that in life only two things are certain–death and taxes. Well, dear readers, I'd like to think y'all would agree with me if I tweaked that saying just a bit. In the reality world, the only two things that are certain have to be Kris Jenner creating rumors about her family in order to stay relevant and Kim Kardashian talking when she should just smile, look plastic pretty, and wear heinous tiny rapper inspired outfits. Am I right or am I right? Of course death, taxes, and all that jazz come into play as well…although have we seen any Kardashian 1099s?
Where to start, where to start? Should I lead with Kim's unfortunate but likely well-intended Twitter posts or Kris speaking out about the gossip she planted about her marriage? It's quite the conundrum. Thank goodness I've got a glass of pinot noir and a Ducky Dynasty marathon to soothe my Kardashian-riddled nerves. Join me, won't you?
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
The Kardashian sister trio is complete again. Khloe Kardashian-Odom finally joined her sisters, Kim and Kourtney, over in London this weekend (after finishing up her X Factor duties). Khloe arrived just in time for the official launch of the Kardashian Kollection for Dorothy Perkins at the Westfield Shopping Centre.
London LOVES the Kardashians, y'all. Like LOVES them. Loves them so much they caused a stampede at the mall this weekend! If you take a peek in the gallery (second page) below you'll see shots of the sea of madness! Police had to talk to the crowd and worked hard to keep things under control. There were a few reports of injuries and girls fainting. The shopping center let people camp overnight before the line opened up at 7 a.m. Media outlets report that "when the number of fans reached 10,000, the situation became chaotic."
That is crazy. Overnight camping for a meet and greet / clothing line launch? I think someone lied and told them it was a Twilight premiere.
Kim and Kourt headed over to a launch party last night at Aqua and then Kim ditched out to go grab dinner at Hakkasan restaurant with her soon-to-be-husband-three, Kanye West. If you take a peek in the photo gallery, you'll see Kanye almost eat pavement.
Random observations: is Kim getting spraytan-happy again? Look at how white her hand is compared to her legs. And this one may show just how much time I spent watching videos on MTV back when they actually played music videos (or any music for that matter), but the first thing that came to mind when I saw Kourtney's tights and sheer sleeves were the twins who always wore polka dots in the Cinderella (hair band, not the princess) videos back in the day. No? It's just me?
