Rob Kardashian has been laying low for quite some time now, ever since he began packing on the pounds and ditched Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’swedding before the ceremony even took place. Since that time, so many rumors have been abuzz claiming that the star was abusing drugs and alcohol, while others claimed that he was sinking deeper and deeper into a depressed state, leaving fans (as well as his family and friends) very worried about Rob.
However, it seems as though the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is finally back on track with his weight loss plan, as he recently shared some photos on Instagram, and he definitely looks like a lot slimmer. What motivated Kardashian to finally get his arse in gear and get back in shape? The answer will most likely not surprise you.
Kimshared what she learned from her secret marriage to Damon Thomas at age 20, “I was very happy at home learning how to cook and clean and keep a house. I knew that was where I wanted to end up.” So when is Kim going home and staying there? And can we have her internet access revoked??
It’s almost been a whole entire year that Kim Kardashian stayed married to a man, ya’ll! And that man, Kanye West, wants a do-over. Well, of sorts. The couple plans to renew their vows in Paris, France, later this month. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and her hip hop hubby, in full diva mode, will be actually be renting out the Eiffel Tower for festivities surrounding the blessed event, according to reports. A private dinner will also be held at the posh 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant.
Paris is where the couple started their media storm wedding preparation last year with family before flying to Florence, Italy, for the main event on May 24 of 2014. Kim still thinks of Paris fondly, saying, “We fell in love in Paris…and then I got pregnant with our daughter in Florence.” After their 2014 wedding, Kim also told Jimmy Kimmel that “It was the most amazing experience just to be able to share it with so many family members and friends. We wanted everyone to be on this love journey with us.”
Although both sides of Bruce Jenner’s family showed public support (tweets, interviews, soundbites) in the wake of his Diane Sawyer interview last week, things aren’t as hunky-dory as they may seem. (Are they ever!?) In the new issue of US Weekly, an “inside source” reveals, “It’s still Camp Jenner and Camp Kardashian, in a major way.” (On the Kardashian side are Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Rob, Kendall, Kylie, and Kris; on the Jenner side are Burt, Casey, Brandon, and Brody, Bruce’s kids from his marriages to Chrystie Scott and Linda Thompson.) Evidence of this divide may lie in the fact that the two camps have not come together in a joint statement, joint interview, or – US is told – even in a joint viewing of the original interview on TV last Friday. US reports, “In order to keep the peace, Bruce scheduled two separate viewing sessions for the 20/20 interview, one with his Keeping Up With the Kardashians family, and one with Scott and his four eldest kids, who appeared on the ABC special in a show of solidarity with their father.”
Kylie and Kendall Jenner, the youngest of the Jenner children, and the “link” between the Jenner/Kardashian tribes in many ways, are reported to be struggling the most with Bruce’s public revelation. “The whole transition was much harder for the Kardashian kids and Kylie and Kendall,” a source tells PEOPLE. “It was hard to grasp. And there was a lot of lying to the kids over the years on Bruce’s part, even as close as they were. It’s going to take some time for the kids to get used to it all.” But one more clue of the disrupt between the families came in the form of a tweet from Burt Jenner, 36, who wrote, “Having a hard time not putting a few people on blast who were not supporters beforehand, but want to act like they were all along.” Hinting at the tension between the Jenners and Kardashians, one source tells us, “He [Burt] feels they’re [the Kardashians] only supportive now for publicity.” Burt has since deleted the tweet.
Before reading, please note we are deeply sensitive to Bruce’s desire to live his life as a woman, but for the sake of this article we’re using male pronouns.
In light of the interview airing, Linda Thompson, Bruce’s second wife and mother of Brandon and Brody Jenner has spoken-out about her marriage to Bruce and how they privately dealt with his desire to transition to a woman. Linda announces she never would have “dared” violated Bruce’s truth or his dignity by revealing his gender dysphoria before he did so himself.
Kim Kardashianis the undisputed(?) queen of social media, naked selfies, and spinning-sextapes-into-goldmines, but now she’s using her power – and her bazillions of social media followers – to bring a little positive change into the world. (Did I wake up in an alternate reality?) According to Fish Wrapper, “Kim’s teamed up with Dr. Drew Pinsky for a documentary called ‘#RedFlag,’ which highlights the correlation between depression and social media today.”
Kim will serve as executive producer on the new show and says, “I am blessed to be surrounded by family and friends that are loving and nurturing, but not everyone has that kind of support. Twenty-five percent of adults in America will suffer from a mental illness in their lifetime, and many of them turn to social media to vent their depression, loneliness and isolation.”
This post came after aKeeping Up with the Kardashians scene aired in which Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian discuss Rob’s very public problems. Kim commented that Rob just needed to “get out of his funk.” Us Weekly reports an insider saying Rob basically feels Kim is two-faced. “His post was about how she seems caring in public, but he feels ignored,” says the source.
The Kardashain/Jenner family is known for living their entire lives in front of the E!’s cameras for their reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and when they aren’t being filmed, they are supplementing their need for attention with a constant barrage of Instagram posts. I’d say Kim Kardashian is the worst offender of the bunch, but perhaps she’s just trying to make up for brother Rob’s absence on social media. She may want to rethink that…
Rob, the only male offspring of Kris Jenner, used to be a fixture in the reality realm like his sisters. He relished in his friendships with Lamar Odom and Scott Disick, and he was especially close to sister Khloe. However, after gaining a lot of weight and rumors of addiction, Rob decided to take a hiatus from reality and his family. He was notoriously absent from Kim’s over-the-top wedding to Kanye West, and she has been less than supportive of his struggles.
