Just days after reports surfaced that Kim Kardashian planned to introduce her new baby to the world on mom Kris Jenner’s new talk show, new sources say that’s not happening. No doubt, daddy Kanye West had something to do with this, but is Kimmy also bristling at the idea of pimping out her newborn?
TMZ reports that not only is Kim Kardashian not planning a North appearance on Kris Jenner’s new show – she’s also totally against having the infant appear on ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians.’ If true, this is a rare move for any Kardashian: shielding a child from the cameras. Kim’s sister, Kourtney Kardashian, had zero problems having both of her children on ‘KUWTK’ – both of her children’s births were shown on the show. Kim, however, appears to be going in a totally different direction.
At this point, sources indicate that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s new baby’s first photos will come via some sort of exclusive deal with a magazine. That’s pretty commonplace for celebrities, and it’s possible the first North West photos will fetch upwards of $2 million.
Are you supportive of Kim Kardashian’s decision not to feature her new baby on reality TV? Do you think this was Kim’s decision, or did Kanye West lay down the law?
You know, here’s the thing: When you agree to let E! film a Kim Kardashian reality TV show in your neighborhood, you really should expect some problems. And that’s exactly what’s happening in South Florida, where some residents who live near where ‘Kourtney & Kim Take Miami’ is filming are extremely unhappy. What’s going on?
Residents in the posh, gated, Miami neighborhood of San Souci gave the green light for Kim Kardashian and company to film ‘Kourtney & Kim…’ in a rented mansion in the neighborhood. The rental cost? Around $300,000. This is a pretty common practice for reality TV shows: They come in, rent some fancy digs for their stars to live in for filming purposes, and then, when the filming is over, they split. Sometimes there are issues — and that certainly seems like the case where Kim and Kourt are concerned.
The biggest issue seems to be a parking problem. One of the San Souci residents is furious that Kim Kardashian’s crew is parking in front of his house. He’s gone so far as to offer Kim’s producers a vacant lot as a parking area — for a steep price ($500/day). That’s crazy!
At least in this case, the whole fracas isn’t Kim K’s fault. Strangely enough, the crazy involves the actual neighborhood residents. In fact, according to the VP of the San Souci Home Owners Association, Richard Otero, Kim Kardashian and her sister, Kourtney, “are more than welcome” in the neighborhood. Otero went on to say that both are “considerate and very professional.”
Kim Kardashian really ought to wait until she’s officially divorced before she starts planning her wedding to boyfriend Kanye West. This Kim K. interview with Tatler magazine is proving to be quite a doozy. Not only does Kim model a wedding gown in the cover story, she also goes on at length about what she would — and wouldn’t like — for her next wedding.
Not surprisingly, Kim Kardashian says she wants a smaller, less flashy wedding the next time she walks down the aisle. Given her disastrous marriage to Kris Humphires (after a big TV wedding of course), that makes sense. Kim said, “…the next time, I want to do it on an island with just my friends and family and that’s it.” Yes, friends, family and the producers with all of the cameras, too! But really Kimmy, please try to hold off on speaking about your next wedding until you are divorced, okay? It’s tacky.
In the same interview, Kim Kardashian opens up about what she doesn’t like when it comes to guys. Her biggest turn off? According to Kim, it’s “Anything to do with bad hygiene, like teeth or nails or big ears.” Totally understandable, except for one thing: Big ears aren’t really a hygiene issue. That seems more…genetic? Either way, big-eared guys need not apply to become Kimmy’s next main man if she and Kanye West don’t work out!
Kim Kardashian has definitely earned the title of world traveler, and now she’s hitting up Australia this week. Of course, Kim was down under for a promotional appearance. Not surprising, is it? She’s definitely taking the Aussies by storm and getting a ton of major media attention.
Earlier this week, Kim was in Sydney, where she paraded before the paparazzi at the E! Brand Evolution event wearing a slick-looking, figure hugging silver dress. Less than 24 hours later, Kim Kardashian was in Melbourne, Australia, where she hit up the swanky Silk Road nightclub wearing another eye-catching dress — this one by famed designer Alexander McQueen. Neither one of the sleeveless dresses were overwhelmingly awesome. Is Kim losing her fashion flair?!
Kim Kardashian is also giving a lot of media interviews while she’s visiting Australia, including one that could very well stir up some major controversy. When asked who she’d trade lives with, if she could, she said Jesus Christ. Really, she absolutely did. Why would Kim K. want to be Jesus, you ask? She said, “…it would be pretty fascinating to see the power that he had.” Here that sound? That’s the sound of Kim’s momager, Kris Jenner, imploding.
From a sex tape with Ray J. to Jesus: That’s a bit of a stretch, Kim. The thing is, if Kim Kardashian had said she’d want to trade lives with Jesus because he was a wonderful person who did great things, that would probably come off a bit better. But no: Kim wants to be Jesus because of his great power.
Expect a lot more fallout from this statement in coming days.
Kim Kardashian is known for her signature long, flowing dark locks. Now, it seems, she’s opting for a big change. Over the weekend, Kim K. tweeted photos of her newly dyed hair, and she’s a blonde now!
Kim decided to give all of her Twitter followers a preview of her new, much blonder look, when she posted an Instagram photo, saying “Blonde hair don’t care.” The color is gorgeous, but will fans like it? Kim Kardashian is a stunner with dark hair, and it’s hard to tell from the photo whether the new, much lighter shade will compliment her skin tone and her gorgeous, dark eyes.
This is a drastic change for Kim Kardashian. She’s lightened her locks this much only once before, in 2009 (after she split from Reggie Bush). This new look is much more than just highlights, judging from the photo she provided. Taking Kim K. from brunette to blonde had to be a tough task for her colorist, because lightening very dark hair can be extremely challenging.
Kim Kardashian fans, what do you think? Is Kim a sexier blonde or brunette? Does her new look enhance or detract from her naturally exotic good looks?
Just when you thought all the Kardashian drama this week would be focused on Kim Kardashians’ nasty divorce from Kris Humphries, guess what? It’s not! A well-known adult film actor has come forth, claiming that he had a threesome with Kim and another female porn star more than a decade ago.
And we’re shocked, why, exactly? Kim Kardashian was just 20 at the time, and, despite being married at the time, probably more than a little wild. According to RadarOnline, porn star Julian St. Jox says the tryst happened a swingers party back in 2001 at the Wyndham Hotel in Los Angeles. Did Kim hit the party with her then-husband, Damon Thomas? Possibly. St. Jox says Kim was with a “black male.” St. Jox claims his date, porn actress Emily Ann, propositioned Kim K. and then things progressed to a private room and a good bit of adult activities.
Forget the Ray J sex tape: Where’s this threesome Kim Kardashian video?! That’s highly unlikely, given that Kim wasn’t really famous at that point. For the record, Kim Kardashian’s rep says this threesome story never happened, but you never know, right? Kim does have a history of being a bit freaky in the bedroom, so the story really isn’t all that surprising.
It seems that Kim Kardashian’s divorce from Kris Humphries is going to take much longer than the couple’s 72-day marriage. Much, much longer. Divorce proceedings for Kim K. are going at a snail’s pace, and that can’t make Kim (or boyfriend Kanye West) very happy. A hearing was held in Los Angeles on Wednesday, and Humphries’ attorney said he probably wouldn’t be ready for a trial for “at least four months.”
Four months?! What’s the holdup? Apparently, Kris’ lawyer says Kim Kardashian and her family are to blame, because they haven’t exactly been forthcoming with information. Kris Humphries is trying to prove that Kim never intended to actually marry Kris in the first place, and that the entire thing was nothing more than an elaborate (and expensive!) sham.
Things got even freakier when Kim Kardashian’s attorney told the judge that Kris’ attorney tried to serve a subpoena to Kanye West via a Nordstrom department store box. Because really, that’s how ALL A-list celebrities are deposed, right? If we needed proof that this entire Kim K. divorce drama was a circus, this is it.
At this point, it could be 2013 before Kim Kardashian is officially a divorced woman — and that’s being optimistic. It doesn’t look like either side is going to budge, and the judge in the case set the next court date for late-November. Looks like any plans Kanye West had for an elaborate engagement and wedding are postponed, indefinitely, until his lady love is single again.
