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!
Photographer Robert Weber says Kim reminds him of the iconic Elizabeth Taylor (he was good friends with her). “I didn’t know Kim loved Elizabeth Taylor before we met, but I imagined she would. The great thing about Kim is that she’s so strong and independent, but she also makes you want to take care of her. Working with her made me really miss Elizabeth.”
Kim on her fashion choices: “I think because I have big boobs it could make me look heavier if I don’t, like, show off my waist or something, so I just have kind of learned to dress one way only,” she says. “Khloé can wear flowy, pretty things because she’s really tall. Kourtney is, like, really little. I’m just kind of in between, so it doesn’t really work.”
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!
