Angelina Pivarnick has been in the news a lot this week.
Primarily, that's because she might have single-handedly killed the Jersey Shore franchise by overreacting to her friends' speech at her wedding.
But we'd like to propose that Angeliner is newsworthy for a reason that has nothing to do with her nuptial tantrum:
Namely, she's looking more and more like Kim Kardashian every day.
Yes, Vinny might still think of her as the Rob Kardashian of Staten Island, but Angelina is looking more and more like Mrs. West every day.
Don't believe us?
Take a look at the pics below and see if you can tell them apart.
It might not be as easy as you think ...
1. Ange or Kim?
2. Does the Tatt Give It Away?
3. Who's Angry?

Kanye West is kind of a handful. I mean, really, I find the dude exhausting and I just see him on TV. Can you imagine living with him? A normal person would be clawing their eyes out. Apparently, so would Kim Kardashian, because The Sun is reporting that Kim feels like she needs to get the hell away from Kanye before she divorces him.
“Things are tough between Kim and Kanye because they never normally spend this much time together, but she doesn’t want a divorce,” says the insider.
“She considers her marriage to Kanye and their family together a huge success – she’s the only sister who is married and thinks of herself and Kanye as a power couple.
“The last thing she wants is a divorce – especially because the public backlash after her second divorce was unbearable.
“What I think will happen is they’ll spend time apart in different houses – but not divorce.”
That’s a good reason to stay together; if you don’t, your TV ratings might go down. And you’re a power couple, you’re like Jay-Z and Beyoncé except everyone hates you and you have to hang out with Donald Trump instead of Barack Obama.
On the other hand, Kanye has been uncharacteristically not terrible during the recent period of protests and unrest following the murder of George Floyd.
Kanye managed not being terrible by keeping his damn mouth shut for a change. I know, every brand in the country has weighed in, but Kanye has said absolutely nothing.
But then Kanye showed up Thursday night at a protest in Chicago and like other celebrities who have been protesting he didn’t make things about himself, he was just another person coming out to show solidarity.
Kanye also made a rather sizable donation to the family of George Floyd, as well the families of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, two other victims of police brutality.
I don’t actually think Kanye West is a bad person, and I think, like you see here, his heart is ultimately in the right place.

Steve Stanulis used to be Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s bodyguard, and now he’s an actor, director and producer. This means he’s out promoting a movie he made with Tara Reid called 5th Borough, and while he’s on the road he’s got a lot to say about his former bosses, something TMZ reports has lead Kim and Kanye to threaten him with a lawsuit. What sorts of things does he have to say, which the couple claim are false and defamatory?
If you missed it, Stanulis claimed Kanye had “ridiculous rules” — like walking 10 paces behind him on city streets, and claimed he got angry if Steve blocked a paparazzi shot. He also called Yeezy the “moodiest” and “neediest” celeb who’s hired him.
I mean, if that is false it’s the most plausible lie anyone has ever told. Why would you even make that up, it’s like making up a story about Harvey Weinstein being a sex pest, there are just so many examples to choose from that you’re just wasting your own time making up a fake one.
Stanulis told TMZ, through a representative, that they have no grounds to sue because this wasn’t a breech of his NDA since the information was already out there from when he breeched his NDA before.

It's been a difficult quarantine for Kim Kardashian.
This may be stating the obvious, considering how millions of people are basically stuck at home these days, but it seems especially true for the former Ray J sex tape co-star.
And here's why...
First, Kardashian paid tribute to her mother on social media -- by sharing a throwback photo of Kris Jenner and giving her props for having shed a lot of her pregnancy weight decades ago.
Yes, of all the attributes Kim chose to admire about her parent, this was the one she focued on:
Jenner's weight loss.
Pretty sad and pathetic, right?
Then, Kim faced a new round of criticism after she was accused of being racist in her latest promotion of shapewear line Skims.
On top of all this, there's been chatter that Kim and Kanye aren't getting along at all amid this Covid-19-based quarantine, fighting non-stop as they're forced to actually spend time together.
This may sound crazy, but think about it:
These superstars are often on the road for their job... and now they're actually under the same roof, with four young children, for weeks and weeks and weeks at a time.
That would be enough to drive many relationships all the way to the edge.
In the face of these rumors, meanwhile, Kim and Kanye rang in their sixth wedding anniversary.
On May 24, 2014, the pair exchanged vows in France.
And, based on what Kim just wrote on Instagram, despite what you may have read of late... they have every intention of sticking to these legal and romantic vows until the day they die.
"6 years down; forever to go Until the end," Kim wrote on Instagram, along with two throwback photos of her and the rapper.
Kris Jenner also commemorated their special day as follows:
"Happy Anniversary to these two!!! I love you guys!!!!! @kimkardashian #KanyeWest."
Kanye didn't say anything about the occasion, perhaps signaling that things are, indeed, rocky at home.
Or perhaps just being as quiet and mysterious as he typically is.
For their fifth wedding anniversary, West whisked his bride away to Las Vegas for a special trip to see Céline Dion in concert.
This took place just two weeks after the pair welcomed their fourth child, Psalm, into the world via surrogate.
Of their marriage, a source told People Magazine last year that "Kim and Kanye seem very happy," adding:
"They feel very proud about their marriage and they love being parents."
Kim Kardashian has taken to Twitter to slam Taylor Swift as a snake and a liar.
The former adult film star and the beloved singer first started feuding back in the summer of 2016... after Kim and husband Kanye West released snippets of a phone conversation between the rapper and Swift.
During this chat, Swift appeared to give West permission to reference her in his song "Famous."
After it came out, however, Swift complained about the way Kanye trashed her in this track.
The stars went back and forth and it got really annoying and we recapped the outbreak of this feud HERE.
Multiple times over the past couple years, both Kim and Taylor have referenced the rivalry, partly to put it behind them -- and partly to keep throwing shade at the other.
We really thought it over, though.
A lengthy video of Kanye talking to Taylor hit the Internet this week (below)... and now here we are again.
As you can see in this footage, Kanye and Swift do talk about the song and Taylor does say the part about West rapping about how his foe "owes" him "sex" is okay.
But Taylor never gives Kanye permission to trash her as a "bitch," which seems to be the real point of contention between the parties: Just what Swift was blessing during the phone call.
On Monday, meanwhile, Swift took to her Instagram stories to react to all the renewed interest in the beef between her and the Wests.
"Instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about video footage that was leaked, proving that I was telling the truth the whole time about *that call* (you know, the one that was illegally recorded, that somebody edited and manipulated in order to frame me and put me, my family, and fans through hell for 4 years)...
"Swipe up to see what really matters."
Swiping up prompted her followers to a donation page for the organization Feeding America.
Pretty great response, right? Swift got some digs in, while also hopefully raised some money for an important cause.
She posted a flood of tweets on Monday night defending herself against the singer and once again attacking Swift.
“To be clear, the only issue I ever had around the situation was that Taylor lied through her publicist who stated that ‘Kanye never called to ask for permission…’" wrote Kim.
"They clearly spoke so I let you all see that. Nobody ever denied the word ‘bitch’ was used without her permission."
At the time when they spoke the song had not been fully written yet, but as everyone can see in the video, she manipulated the truth of their actual conversation in her statement when her team said she 'declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message.
Back in 2016, Taylor's rep told E! News in a statement (which does reflect Kim's aforementioned assertion):
"Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single 'Famous' on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message.
"Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that bitch famous.'"
In response to Kardashian' most recent tweets, Swift’s rep shared her “UNEDITED original statement” on Twitter, as you can see above.
Elsewhere, Kim defended her husband’s “right to document his musical journey and process,” and said she would “never” have released the footage if Swift had not “forced me to defend him.”
She also vowed to finally shut the heck up about all this.
"This will be the last time I speak on this because honestly, nobody cares," Tweeted Kardashian, referencing the Coronavirus pandemic and concluding:
"Sorry to bore you all with this. I know you are all dealing with more serious and important matters.
We really are.
Which means the celebrity gossip world can serve as a nice distraction... but not by these two once again going at it online.
Instead, let's all donate to Feeding America.
And let's all distance ourselves socially, as well as emotionally from anything Kim or Taylor or Kanye says about all this nonsense.
If you remember when Kanye West first started dating Kim Kardashian, you’ll recall he just would not shut up about how beautiful and sexy she was and how much he loves her and she was absolutely not a hobbit.
Now, after six years of marriage, Kanye wouldn’t even kiss Kim on the kiss cam at the NBA All-Star game.
Yikes, that is just so awkward. I have two theories on what happened here.
the first one is that Kanye is so off in his own world and up his own asshole that when he saw a camera he literally forgot other people exist for a second. It seems likely, if you see the way he mugs for the camera and then smiles when Kim kisses him on the cheek.
My other theory is that Kanye has worms in his brain since he converted to Christianity and those worms told him that public displays of affection are sinful. Kanye has recently been on a kick of saying Kim, who is famous because he mom convinced her to sell a sex tape, dresses too sexy. If you want to put your wife in a burqa, you’re probably not going to want people to see you kiss her. Converts to religions are always the ones who take that shot way too far. No one becomes a Christian as an adult to only go to mass on Easter and Christmas.

Though reports say that Kim Kardashian may already be planning baby #5, she has her hands full with North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
But Kim has become increasingly convinced that Psalm is her late father, Robert Kardashian, reincarnated.
“My son, Psalm, is probably the happiest baby alive,” Kim gleefully reports about her youngest child.
“He’s always smiling,” she explains. “Always happy.”
“On our show, we showed that we were in Bali, and a woman, a blind medium, came up to me and said that I was going to have another son”
“And,” “it was gonna be my father reincarnated. No one knew … that I had a surrogate that was pregnant and that it was going to be a boy.”
“And then my baby nurse — I had to go out of town and I really needed her to come in,” Kim recalls.
She shares that her nurse was attending a baby shower, so Kim convinced her to take Psalm with her to the event.
“She brings him to the baby shower,” Kim explains, “and a woman comes up to her and said ‘Is this your son?”
According to Kim, the woman told her baby nurse: “I just have to tell you, please tell their mom that this is a family member of hers reincarnated.”
“Multiple people that have no idea [who she is] have come up to my baby to say that he’s, like, a family member reincarnated,” Kim explains.
When Psalm is with a nurse or a nanny, he is assumed to be just another baby. No one realizes that he’s Kim’s child.
“So my whole family all of the time thinks it’s my dad,” Kim shares.
It sounds like Psalm has big shoes to fill.
“And it’s so emotional … and close to him,” Kim says of how her family regards Psalm.
It’s not clear how serious her family members are about it, of course.
“And he’s left-handed,” Kim points out, “like my dad.”
It will certainly be interesting to see more of Psalm as he grows up.
“I don’t even know if I believe in reincarnation,” Kim confesses.
“But,” she says, “I do now!”
She then laughs, so it’s unclear how seriously she takes it.
Kim then expresses: “I want to believe it.”
Reincarnation may have been adopted by some New Age folks, but it is a sincerely held religious belief that dates back many millennia.
The belief comes in many forms. Some faiths believe that only humans reincarnate.
Others believe that there is a hierarchy of reincarnation across the animal kingdom.
Finally, there are faiths in which people believe that certain, rare individuals who are particularly divine are reborn to help future generations.
The Kardashian family is famously Christian, from Kris to Khloe and most aggressively, Kanye.
That said, a major factor of New Age belief is the syncretization of Christianity with external spiritual models and beliefs, from divination to reincarnation.
Kim and her family are of course entitled to believe whatever they wish.
That said, maybe people should avoid such talk around Psalm. Can you imagine the kind of pressure that a kid might feel as they grow up?
Critics would say that they already gave him a hard enough time by giving him that name.
It seems like a lifetime ago, but it’s important to remember that before Kim Kardashian let Ray J, a C-list celebrity, give it to her on camera, she was just the friend in the background to fellow porn star Paris Hilton.
Since then, Kardashian has kept herself busy making money any way she can. Now in a move that isn’t at all driven by an insatiable need for attention, she has announced that she wants to start her own law firm.
Honestly, it’s a little hard to follow, but if you pay attention to politics, or Kanye’s craziness, or Kardashian herself, you may have heard that Kanye and Kim have been working with the President on prison reform.
Now, Kim’s taking it a step further. Caitlyn Jenner told OK! magazine that Kim “wants to start her own law firm” and continue her work on prison reform.
I want so badly to believe that Kim is somehow using this as another way to promote her brand, but she just seems so damn sincere. At the Television Critics Association winter press tour, she said:
“There are times when I could be frustrated and studying really late and have to get up and wonder how [my dad] did it, having four kids and must’ve been going through some of the same things that I have gone through.
She went on to say:
“I’m raising four black children that could face a situation like any of the people that I help.”
It’s a crazy world we live in and it is entirely possible that a reformed porn star may just step into the role of an activist that makes a real difference in the world. What’s more likely is that she will spend most of her time pleading with a judge for house arrest for whatever Kanye did this time.
Kim Kardashian’s husband has gone like, all the way crazy recently but Kim hasn’t really changed. Kanye’s been trying to put her in a burqa to go with his new religious image, but she’s been having none of it.
Just look at the New Year gift she gave us on Instagram.
Yes! Feminism! Girl power!
Even her pajamas are doing a lot of work.
Thankfully, we’re still getting lots of the same Kim whose mom convinced her to be a porn star.

All hail the new queen of the KarJenner clan!
Yes, as you may know, Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner have been battling for social media supremacy for several years now, and this week, Kylie declared a major victory.
After gaining on Kim throughout 2019, Kylie is now the most popular member of her family ... at least on Instagram.
On Saturday, Kylie's followers totaled 156 million, edging out Kim's following of 155 million.
(Of course, Kylie follows 132 people to Kim's 14, but we don't think the ratio matters when the follower/followee gap is that wide.
For perspective, here's how the follower count breaks down for the rest of the family:
Kendall has a following of 120 million, Khloe follows with 102 million, and Kourtney comes in a distant third with just 85 million.
Despite being hailed as the social media genius, Kris Jenner boasts a paltry 31 million
Meanwhile, Rob Kardashian brings up the rear with just 1.1 million.
You might be tempted to throw Rob a pity like, but it's worth noting that he uses his account to sell socks and post revenge porn featuring his exes, so it's best to keep your distance.
So does any of this matter? Well, yes and no.
Social media basically made the Kardashians, and that's a fact they haven't forgotten.
Sources say Kim and company keep close watches on their follower counts, and they do take declines in popularity very seriously.
The Kim vs. Kylie feud has reportedly been an intense one, with 39-year-old Kim reportedly attaching major symbolic importance to the challenge from her 22-year-old upstart sister.
Insiders say Kim has been jealous of Kylie ever since the latter earned the title of world's youngest "self-made" billionaire.
The mother of four reportedly took the Instagram battle so seriously that she bought fake followers to keep up with Kylie -- but in the end, it just wasn't enough.
In addition to its symbolic importance, social media count can lead to big bucks from sponsored content.
Interestingly, Kendall leads the pack in that respect.
In fact, with earnings of $15.9 million in 2019 -- she reportedly charged $611,000 per sponsored post -- the runway model is one of the top earners on all of Instagram.
In other words, if you're one of those people who was hoping that the Kardashians would quietly go away in the 2020s, you're probably out of luck.
As the decade comes to a close, it's safe to say that few public figures left their mark on the 2010s quite like Kim Kardashian.
In 2009, Kim was Paris Hilton's friend who had recently scored a reality series of her own -- in 2019, she's one of the most famous women on the planet.
Of course, Kim's rise to mega-stardom corresponded with the rise of social media, which means she served as a sort of test case.
It was only during this past decade that we learned what effect Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram would have on the careers and public images of the newly famous.
We now know, of course, that it would result in a level of scrutiny that would make the most ambitious paparazzi blush, as well as rumors so absurd that they'd consistently put the National Enquirer to shame.
So we guess it's fitting that Kim is closing out the decade by squashing one of the most ridiculous scandals of her career:
Earlier this week, a Twitter user posted a fake Instagram post as "proof" that Kim had selected some very unusual Christmas presents for her eldest daughter, North West.
Those gifts included clothing worn by Michael Jackson -- and the shirt that President John F. Kennedy was wearing when he was assassinated in 1963.
Most who saw the post recognized it for what it was -- an obvious fraud.
But a staffer at Refinery29 took the bait and wrote an article describing the bloody shirt as the latest addition to the "hell of a fashion archive" that Kim is creating for her daughter.
Not surprisingly, Kim was less than thrilled to find that the outlet was reporting such an absurd rumor as fact.
"WOW this is obviously fake! @Refinery29 I did not get JFK's shirt," the mother of four tweeted on Monday.
"That is a sick joke that someone tweeted as a fake ig story that I never posted."
Refinery29 has since printed a retraction and removed the offending portion of the story.
And to the credit of the person who authored the piece, Kim actually has purchased items of clothing that belonged to Michael Jackson and given them to North as gifts.
The famous bedazzled glove may not be JFK's death shirt -- but it's still a damn weird gift for a 6-year-old.
It's already clear that Kim Kardashian will stand by Kanye West no matter what he does. But how long will Kim's fans stand by her?
That's what people are asking this week after photos of Kim with brown skin were published. Is this blackface?
Kim Kardashian's photos for 7Hollywood are going over like a lead balloon now that they are visible to the public.
In the photo, Kim Kardashian appears with large, rounded dark hair that would have been popular many decades ago.
While it is not a straight-up Afro wig, the hairstyle holds a similar shape and is reminiscent of some black hairstyles.
But the larger issue with Kim Kardashian's face and skin. Her skin looks less like a golden tan and more ... brown.
Commenters were furious and flooded social media with explanations of why the image of Kim horrified them.
"This is traaaaaaaash," one writes. "They really need to start hiring black women instead of all these digital blackface ANTICS."
"Kimberly this looks like blackface," another explains.
"Maybe darkening your skin this much was something you were talked into by the folks who set up the shoot," a fan says, "but girl this is not a good look."
"You’re beautiful," that same comment continues, "but you should think about removing these photos."
"She looks African American, this is offensive," another points out.
"The first image I saw from this shoot I honestly thought was a black woman," a commenter admits.
That same commenter expresses: "C'mon Kim with the OD spray tan. It's essentially blackface."
"Alexa, play 'Brown Skin Girl' by Beyonce," another writes.
That meme, inspired by Amazon's virtual assistant, is used to point out when a song's title or lyrics fit the situation.
Another commenter very directly accuses: "This is black face."
But that is not to say that Kim did not have her defenders.
"Why do people forget that she is half Armenian! STOP with the blackface, haters! Armenians come in all shades," one writes.
That same defender adds: "Kim is rockin’ the ’80s glam and she looks gorgeous."
"She’s a model and she was dressed by artists/photographers," another argues. "It’s part of her job title. She looks amazing."
"People are so quick to find the negative in everything," a Kim apologist laments, "and also often forget that she is of Armenian descent."
You'll notice some recurring elements among Kim's online defenders.
One, they think that Kim being Armenian is a get-out-of-shaming-free card when it comes to blackface or appropriated hairstyles.
Armenians ... are white. Like Bulgarians and to a lesser extent, Italians, they have more olive complexion. They're still white.
Also, it's so interesting that any time that black people have concerns about someone, it's dismissed as people being "negative."
Kim has been dealing with accusations of this exact thing for years and years.
One would think that years of callouts over racial insensitivities would make Kim more vigilant about photoshoots.
But it's important to remember that celebrities exist within a very real "celebrity bubble."
Kim may hear fans when they complain and accuse her of things, but that doesn't mean that she will embrace their criticisms and make an effort to change.
That siad, Kim does listen more than a lot of celebrities. It's just that she appears to make the same mistake again and again.
At the risk of sounding like Kim apologists, however, we should note that Kim does not own this magazine. She modeled for it.
Reports have claimed that the lighting and editing are more responsible for her skin tone in the published photos than Kim's actual skin.
If so, it sounds like Kim may be a partial victim in this.
Forget about the House of Representatives versus Donald Trump.
There's a war going on in this country that threatens to shake our notions of American democracy to their very foundation and tear families apart from coast to coast.
We're talking, of course, about Kim Kardashian versus Kylie Jenner.
As you may know, the sisters have been involved in an intense sibling rivalry for several years now.
If you ask most people, they'd probably tell you that Kim is the most famous member of her family.
We'll call that the popular vote.
But in the electoral college of social media, Kylie is on the verge of a landslide victory.
And Kim is reportedly colluding with bots to help tip the scales in her favor.
Yes, according to a new report from Radar Online, Kim is deeply concerned about the possibility that Kylie might soon surpass her as the Kard clan's social media queen.
Reports of Kim's growing jealousy date back to around the time that Kylie was named the world's youngest "self-made" billionaire.
(We'll never not use quotes there, as Kylie is self-made only in the most technical sense of the term.)
“Kim is really insecure that Kylie’s follower count is always rising," a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.
"She always wants to be on top; she’s really competitive."
The insider points out that on Instagram, Kim still has a slightly larger follower counter than Kylie (154 million vs. 153).
But that's not the only metric that matters.
In terms of engagement with individual posts, Kylie beats Kim just about every time -- and by a fairly wide margin.
“She gets three-to-four times more likes/comments than Kim,” the insider adds.
“It’s really killing Kim’s ego."
The source says that Kim has employed the services a marketing team that essentially just controls a bunch of bot accounts which help to artificially inflate their clients' following.
It's a common tactic, and using a middle man marketing firm allows the celeb in question to play dumb if they get busted.
Of course, Kim didn't get to where she is by doing all the same crap as other famous people.
No, she likes to take things one step further, which is why -- the insider claims -- she's also saving face via a tactic that very few public figures could get away with.
"That’s why Kim is going on a media tour right now; she’s trying to encourage Instagram to remove the like count so she doesn’t look less popular than Kylie," the source says.
Yes, according to the tipster, Kim is at risk of losing, so she's working behind the scenes to make the entire game disappear.
That would be like if your team was losing the Super Bowl, so you got elected president and outlawed football.
It sounds outrageous, but Kim's recent comments on the subject confirm that she's opposed to public engagement numbers.
“As far as mental health, I mean it’s something that taking [Instagram] ‘likes’ away and taking that aspect away from it would be really beneficial for people,” she recently told the New York Times.
To be fair, it's entirely possible that Kim's primary concern in all this is the mental health of young people.
Either way, we hope that if Instagram decides to make engagement information private, Kim will call Kylie and either cackle like a Bond villain or menacingly utter, "I win," a la Walter White.
Goodbye to one big family tradition.
And hello to a smaller family tradition.
This is the message Kim Kardashian sent late last week, as the veteran reality star and former sex tape participant surprised fans by unveiling the following photo:
Yup, that's an immediate family Christmas card shared by Kim, as opposed to the ones in the past that included her, her siblings, their significant others and their mother.
The dropping of these gigantic Kardashian Christmas cards had become a wildly-anticipated release across the Internet, causing some to wonder whether any tension exists now between loved ones.
Why else would Kim and Kanye break off and do their own instead?
"The West Family Christmas Card 2019," Kim simply wrote as a caption on Instagram.
As you can see, the above card features mom and dad, Kim and Kanye, respectively.
They're posing alongside Psalm, 7 months; Chicago, 2 next month; Saint, ; and North, 6, all of whom are decked out in sweatsuits as they cheesed for the camera.
Kanye shared the same photo and same caption on his Instagram page.
The snapshot marks the first that either star has shared of their entire family together, not including on Halloween, when they went all out in multiple group ensembles.
As for why Kim went this unexpected route for the holidays?
“It’s been difficult for them for years to get everyone together for a Christmas card,” a source recently told People Magazine of the Kardashian and Jenner siblings.
This same inside added:
“Last year when Kim organized it, there was a lot of complaining. It really stressed her out. She was over the drama and decided to do one for just her family this year.”
It's no secret, either, that Kim has been clashing with Kourtney.
If certain reality show storylines are to be believed, the former even wants the latter fired from Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
It's true. See what we mean here:
“[Kim] knew fans wanted to see her whole family together, so it was important for her to share a special photo,” this People source adds.
As for the details behind the card itself? And the photo shoot that went with it?
“The photo was taken at their house and it was just a relaxed event,” reports People, concluding:
“No one was stressed, the kids were happy and it was perfect. Kanye is not a fan of glitz so this is why they are dressed casually.“
If I ever made a sex tape, which I haven’t, I would really not want my mother to know about it. And if she did know about it, I think the last thing I’d want is for her to basically force me to sell it to an adult video company. If that happened I’d probably hurl myself off the side of a building.
This is exactly what happened to Kim Kardashian, according to a new, thinly-veiled memoir by her former friend Kevin Dickson that was acquired by Page Six.
In an excerpt seen by Page Six, a woman named Zia Zandrian (who has a whole lot in common with Kardashian) calls an editor named Chauncey Toliver (who has whole lot in common with Dickson) and announces that she’s just gotten paid $5 million for a sex tape.
In the book — billed for legal reasons as a “fairy tale” — Toliver says, “I thought you didn’t want to release it?,” to which Zandrian replies, “I don’t. But like Mom says, when else am I likely to earn $5 million? Like, what if I pass this up and I never get the chance again?”
When Toliver tries to talk her out of it, Zandrian says, “It’s too late, Chauncey … The tape is going to come out anyway. There’s nothing I can do to stop it. At least this way, I’m rich.”
That’s pretty cold if it’s true. There have been rumors that this is how it went down for years, but this seems pretty close to confirmation. As close as we’re going to get, at least.

If you watched the Emmys last night or heard about it, at least, then you’re up-to-date on Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner’s completely awkward and uncomfortable award presentation.
And how the entire audience started laughing at them, quite ruthlessly.
Well, we now have their side of the story, and it’s only furthering the awkwardness, people. Brace yourselves.
While the sisters were there to give out the award for Best Reality TV Show Competition, they ran into a little hiccup… but in their defense, it may not have been entirely their fault.
When Kim read “Our family knows firsthand how truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves,” to the audience at the Microsoft Theatre, she didn’t quite catch the humor behind her words.
The audience assumed that Kim was making a joke (lol, a really good joke) so, they proceeded to laugh, however, unaware and pissed-off looking Kim put herself in the position of getting laughed at, instead of with.
Things only worsened when Kendall made the same mistake as big sis Kim and tried to claim that their show is “unfiltered and unscripted.”
But according to Us Weekly, a source shared that Kardashian, 38, and Jenner, 23, “were not briefed” about their teleprompter bits being “a joke.”
The insider added that “it was definitely a bit awkward.”
Ok, If you were sitting there watching it like me, you know it was more than just a “bit” awkward.
And that the moment called for at least 3 or 4 rewinds.
But basically, the girls just missed the memo and didn’t realize that those lines were supposed to be read as jokes.
We don’t know if it’s more embarrassing that they didn’t pick up on their own joke, or that they actually may have believed what they were reading?
Either way, you gotta admit that this family never fails to entertain, am I right?
Apparently, Kim and Kendall weren’t too worried about their unsuccessful moment, and they didn’t take it personally.
They “were good sports about it,” another source told Us. “The line was supposed to be funny. They weren’t bothered by people laughing.”
Besides, the sister duo arrived in style and their stunning looks are what stole the night anyway.
The KKW Beauty owner wore a skintight black velvet gown by Vivienne Westwood, which she accessorized with some chunky necklaces, including a cross necklace.
Meanwhile, the Victoria’s Secret model killed it in a pink floral Richard Quinn gown, which she paired with a latex Vex turtleneck.
Kylie Jenner was also set to walk the red carpet and present the award beside her sisters that night,
but luckily however, she was too sick to make it.
“She has been sick for days,” a source told the outlet, so Kylie decided to skip out on the event.
After the incident, many fans took to social media to defend the E! TV stars.
One fan made a pretty good point, tweeting, #Emmys @KimKardashian @KendallJenner The fact that they will turn your laughs into millions of cash is funnier.”
“You look so stunning Kim and Kendall. Highest paid model and highest paid reality star.”
Hm… Mic drop?

With the advent of Photoshop, it became a game trying to figure out how truly flawless the faces on the covers of magazines were, but any key eye can spot the fakes from the real thing. Many celebrity women are more than happy to share the beauty tips they employ to maintain radiant, smooth skin everyday — without the need for Photoshop touch-ups.
Besides the fact that facials cleanse and detoxify your skin, they also stimulate collagen production, which most people know helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Many celebs will include light therapy as part of their facial treatments. Light therapy is designed to strengthen the elastin fibers and increase collagen production from the inside out.
The fact that Kim Kardashian West will get a facial or schedule a hair-removal appointment at 10 pm on a weeknight is a testament that proper skincare has no set time. You have to implement a skincare routine that works best for your schedule. Though most people can’t afford the luxury of after-hours appointments, that doesn’t mean they can’t indulge in spa-level treatment at home.
Purchasing a high quality at home hair removal device is a great investment and doesn’t require a celebrity’s bank account. You can learn more at Silk’n about the bevvy of affordable options on the market that deliver the same results you get from the dermatologist’s office.
Every celebrity will tell you that the secret to their youthful glow is staying hydrated. However, consuming water isn’t the only way to counter aging. According to Gabrielle Union, whenever she needs to, she literally refreshes her face by submerging it in ice water, which leaves her skin feeling smooth.
For years now, dermatologists have been saying that hot water, especially on your face, can dry out your skin by stripping it of its natural oils. Cold water, on the other hand, will tighten your pores and lock in moisture.
One of the latest buzzwords circulating through the beauty community is hyaluronic acid. Plenty of cosmetic companies have been citing it as a key ingredient in their skincare products and for good reason. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the skin and connective tissues. Its sole purpose is to keep the moisture in your body so that your skin can stay hydrated and more firm-looking.
As expected, the amount of hyaluronic acid produced by the body decreases with age. To combat this, you can incorporate this substance into your beauty routine in a variety of ways. There are supplements available at health stores to help you retain this vital skincare ingredient.
Celebs like Kerry Washington, who swears by hyaluronic acid supplements considers it to be a gift from heaven and is grateful for its contributions to her regular beauty and skincare regimen.
Getting older shouldn’t make anyone feel ashamed. It is a privilege that unfortunately some will take for granted. Aging can actually be a graceful process when done correctly, and if you want to look your best as you age, consider supplementing your hyaluronic intake, keeping hydrated, and investing in at-home hair removal devices — you’ll be glad you did.
Poor Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner. Once they step outside their carefully constructed reality TV bubble, that’s when the real reality hits them. And it’s not comfortable.
The two sisters presented the Emmy for Best Reality Competition Program. Kim started off their speech with “our family knows firsthand how truly compelling television comes from real people, just being themselves.” That’s when you could hear the unmistakable sound of derisive laughter from the audience.

How about another angle?
Kim K: “Our family knows firsthand how truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves…"

Yea, this family is fake and the idea of their reality show coming from “real people” is absurd, but do they really deserve our scorn? Ask yourself: How many prisoners did you get released today? How many domes that could possibly save civilization did you build? Did you turn your sex tape into a billion dollar enterprise?
We always laugh at the true geniuses who are way ahead of their time. I, for one, am waiting for the Kardashians to get their Lifetime Emmys award one day.

You know what’s weird about the Kardashians? I mean, everything, but this specific thing is even weirder than most things about them. They somehow manage to keep major news about themselves out of the press to avoid “spoilers” for their realty show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, a title that’s much less apt now that that show isn’t about down-to-Earth Bruce Jenner dealing with a giant brood of crazy women. And Rob.
Like, Kim Kardashian thought she had lupus, which turned out to be psoriatic arthritis, but there wasn’t a peep about it in the news. That’s ultimately pretty minor, but how about Kim’s bodyguards almost waxing matriarch Kris Jenner.
That’s a preview of an upcoming KUWTK episode where Kim learns her bodyguards tackled Kris, who had to be taken to the hospital.
I don’t understand how you keep that under wraps. Has Kris Jenner been secretly wearing one of neck braces right in front of our faces?
How do these bodyguards not know they shouldn’t tackle Kris Jenner though? Khloe said she should have gone around or whatever, but seriously, what good are bodyguards who don’t know the difference between a deranged maniac and one of your family members and oh, oh, I see the problem. Good job bodyguards.

Kim Kardashian delivered a major plot twist when she revealed she was studying to become a lawyer earlier this year.
It may be hard to imagine Kim representing anyone in court, and not just because she hasn't yet passed her Bar exam.
But now that Wendy Williams is calling out for Kim's help, it's clear that Kim's influence and legal know-how are already in high demand
In a recent segment on her talk show show, Wendy Williams asked Kim Kardashian to help get A$AP Rocky released from jail in Sweeden.
The 30-year-old rapper was arrested for assault after he and his crew were involved in a street altercation in Stockholm late last month.
The beatdown was caught on camera, but Rocky's lawyer insists that it was done in self-defense.
Additional footage of the incident, posted to the rapper's Instagram seems to confirm the lawyer's account.
In the videos, we can plainly see that Rocky and his crew are being followed and harrassed by shrimpy guys who should really know better.
Rocky and his entourage all but beg the two men to leave them alone and "walk the other way."
Of course, both men repeatedly refused to take the advice and continued to stalk the crew around Stockholm, resulting in the eventual fight and arrests.
Look, laws are laws, and violence should always be discouraged.
But after watching the tapes, it's hard not to feel like those jerks had it coming.
Wendy Williams seems to think of the Swedish as organized, healthy, and humane, and assumed their prisons would follow suit.
"I'm thinking the prison probably has down sheets, 700 thread count," Wendy says in the clip.
She muses, "You can eat the meatballs like at IKEA all day long."
But Wendy was appalled by the reality of Rocky's imprisonment when she learned of the horrific, inhumane conditions in his cell.
"It's Holy Hell!" Wendy reveals about the prison.
She goes on to explain that he sleeps "down on the floor" on something akin to a yoga mat.
She adds that he has no cell-mate, and he's been alone in his cell for 16 days.
"This is stupid, he needs to be released," Wendy asserts.
Apparently, this is where Kim Kardashian comes in. Wendy Williams feels that if Kim were to speak up about this, her voice would make a difference.
Kim would be joining a handful of other celebrities who have spoken out about the wrongful imprisonment, including Al Sharpton, Snoop Dogg, and even Donald Trump.
In fact, it's Snoop Dogg who first mentions that Kim should get involved, as Wendy's clip shows.
"Hey Kim Kardashian," Snoop says in a self-recorded video post, "go get Rocky out of jail."
"Look out for us," the famous rapper entreats, adding "The black community needs this."
Snoop and Wendy both also call on Kanye West to simply make his wife help Rocky out, in case their pleas didn't reach her directly.
But why Kim Kardashian? What exactly do all these celebrities expect her to do?
Well, the "queen of celebrities" as Wendy calls her, is on track to becoming a full-fledged lawyer.
And although she may not be legally certified yet, she may have a more a nuanced perspective of this issue from a legal standpoint.
"She's involved with the law right now," Wendy points out, "and this would be a big feather in her cap if she can help make this happen."
Truly, Kim's influence is so mighty that she could bring a lot of attention to Rocky's plight without ever stepping into the courtroom.
But Wendy ackowledges that Kim can't pull this off all by herself.
"When I say help, I mean she should not be the main person," Wendy clarifies, suggesting Kim contact a law firm.
Wendy goes on to explain that "Kim needs to be in the shadows, but clearly present, making it happen."
Wendy also suggests that Kim go so far as to make use of her connections with the white house, pushing our government to fast-track the issue with Sweeden.
We love this fantasy of Kim as some kind of fame-powered superhero, fighting for justice from "the shadows" despite her insane level of visibility.
We think Wendy may be giving Kim a little bit too much credit.
But we live in a time when celebrities seem to make all the rules, so honestly, who even knows anymore?
In any event, the world will know more about A$AP Rocky's fate on Friday, when prosecutors must either formally charge him or request to extend his detainment.
We did it guys! Now let’s get back to talking about Kim’s ass.
I am always listening, learning and growing – I so appreciate the passion and varied perspectives that people bring to me. When I announced the name of my shapewear line, I did so with the best intentions in mind.
— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) July 1, 2019
My brands and products are built with inclusivity and diversity at their core and after careful thought and consideration, I will be launching my Solutionwear brand under a new name. I will be in touch soon. Thank you for your understanding and support always.

The post Kim Kardashian Will Stop Her Cultural Appropriation appeared first on The Blemish.
Earlier this week, we reported on the surprising news that Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have officially ended their feud.
While the pop landscape might be a more peaceful place as a result, it was undeniably a sad day for fans of petty celebrity rivalries.
Fortunately, the equally-entertaining Taylor Swift-Kim Kardashian feud appears to be going strong!
Taylor just dropped a new single entitled "You Need to Calm Down," and while the song is ostensibly a straightforward pro-LGBTQ anthem, many fans ate convinced that several lines have double meanings and are intended as subtle jabs against Kim.
Kim's prison reform efforts brought her back to the White House today, and the 38-year-old apparently feels that Swift's new song cast a shadow over what should have been one of the proudest moments of her career.
“Apparently, Taylor will never be done shading Kim, but Kim is letting her appearance at the White House yesterday speak for itself,” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.
“It just so happened that the day Taylor announced her album, Kim spoke at the White House in front of the whole world, completely blowing her out of the water.”
The insider says Taylor's sly disses were not lost on Kim, who selected her attire for today in order to send a message to Swift:
“And it is no coincidence at all that Kim wore green, the color of the snake,” the source claims.
Using a White House event on prison reform as an opportunity to throw subtle shade at a pop star sounds insane -- but then again, so does everything else about 2019.
So Radar's interpretation is that Taylor's new single just happened to drop on the same day that Kim spoke at the White House.
But the folks over at Cosmo make a pretty convincing argument that Swift planned it that way and loaded her lyrics with coded jabs at Trump.
As many have observed on Twitter, it might not be a coincidence that the song was released on the Donald's birthday.
And the progressive lyrics present exactly the sort of argument that tends to deepen the president's perma-scowl:
“You are somebody that we don’t know / But you’re coming at my friends like a missile / Why are you mad? / When you could be GLAAD?” Swift sings at one point.
“Sunshine on the street at the parade / But you would rather be in the dark ages," she later croons.
“’Cause shade never made anybody less gay.”
Obviously, much of this situation is open to interpretation, but the Radar source assures us that things are about to escalate rapidly:
“Kim will continue to drop more subtle hints on social media as more of Taylor’s album becomes revealed,” the insider claims.
“She is really sick of it, but at the end of the day they both kind of live for it.”
Fortunately, so do we!
For ages, Kris Jenner has lorded over her family's annual Christmas Eve party with an iron fist.
In this Keeping Up With The Kardashians sneak peek, Kim confronts Kris, hoping that Kanye can make the Kardashians cool again.
Kim wants control of the party. She wants to throw it at her house. And the request reduces Kris to tears. See for yourself:
What's most important about the beginning of this sneak peek is that Kim Kardashian is very evidently in a foul mood.
Kris openly acknowledges this, trying to broach the subject of the Christmas Eve party during what she sarcastically calls Kim's "delicious mood."
"Well," Kris says. "You're a little tough on me as far as doing the same thing every year."
"So," she continues. "I just don't want to disappoint anybody."
Kim explains: "I just think the kids have evolved from just, like, having it be your friends. Because it's kind of this older party."
Kris gets defensive, noting that there are "reindeer" and "hotdog-on-a-stick."
Kim gets real with Kris, saying: "There's literally people we don't know."
"Our Christmas Eve party was a fun party that, I just remember it, being friends and family and my grandparents and cousins," Kim recalls.
Kim explains to the camera: "It was just the best night ever."
"But," she laments. "My mom's been doing it for so long that it's turned into something different."
"Like, it's just kind of a party mostly for my mom," Kim observes. "And mostly her friends."
Viewers are then treated to a flashback, in which Kim pitches these same complaints to her sisters and her grandmother, who agree.
"We want it to be a place that we can just have fun, and it's all of our friends," Kim expresses.
She adds: "And definitely family, and my mom's friends too."
"So," Kim says. "We can have a good time and really just enjoy each other."
Speaking to Kris at the table, Kim suggests: "The time has come that ... maybe we switch the location, and we have it here, at our house."
"I know Kanye, like, loves to put things together," Kim says.
"So," she continues. "If he knows that we're doing the Christmas Eve party, he'll have, like, so many ideas."
"And we just have a different vibe," Kim says. "And different energy."
Dragon energy, right?
This is where it gets confrontational, because Kim tells Kris in no uncertain terms: "We all, collectively -- all the siblings feel that way."
Kris slowly cracks a smile, and says: "So, I'm outnumbered."
"You're outnumbered," Kim confirms.
"Well," Kris says honestly. "That makes me sad."
Seeing that she has already won, Kim tries to be gracious.
"I want you to give us your blessing," Kim hastily tells her mother. "I don't want to just steal it from you."
"No," Kris says. "I want you guys to be able to do this 'til you're my age and one of your kids takes over."
That's a not-so-subtle reminder that Kim won't be young and relevant forever, may one day find herself in this position.
"That's the whole ... that's the joy," Kris says.
Kris then admits: "It's just the thought of actually not doing it at my house. ... I'm getting emotional."
Tearing up, she explains that it's not just a party -- and she's crying because this is a "changing of the guards."
This is a huge milestone for her family.
Earlier this month, Kim Kardashian welcomed her fourth child, Psalm West. Baby #4 is keeping her plenty busy these days.
But Keeping Up With The Kardashians was filmed months ago, and at the time, Kim was more worried about Khloe's drama with Tristan.
In this sneak peek for Sunday's new episode, Kim confesses that she's afraid that this very public scandal has been too much for her.
This clip begins with Malika Haqq walking down the hall to speak with Kim, who is lounging on a series of beds made to look like a giant couch.
"Going to Law school is a lot, a lot, a lot," Kim says, sharing why she's feeling so tired. "But the baby is due in May."
"So," Kim explains. "I'm excited to get the break -- the baby break -- because you get to take time off."
Kim, who is worth a third of a billion dollars and could take any time off she wanted, is looking forward to an excuse to wear pajamas all day.
But after that brief preamble, this sneak peek klip for Sunday's new episode gets into Khloe's relationship drama.
"We had like numerous readings and they were all so weird," Kim recalls.
She shares an anecdote about herself that we'll get into below, because her words about Khloe's experience are a little more pressing.
"And then the last one told her that she has a lot of hurt in her heart," Kim reveals. "Because her guy has really hurt her."
"And," she adds. "She said that she's been going back and forth and can't make a decision in the relationship."
Kim continues: "and I so feel that."
"I think I'm always concerned about Khloe," Kim admits during the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clip.
"Obviously, everything that they've been through," she expresses. "I don't think you can just forget about it."
"Its definitely not easy when everything is so public," Kim points out.
Kim is no stranger to having personal drama play out in the spotlight.
Like Khloe, it's defined her life for over a decade. It's a huge part of her career.
But she has a lot of confidence (konfidence?) that Khloe will continue to try to tackle her drama on her own terms.
"She definitely tries to handle it on her own," Kim observes.
"But," Kim says. "I just worry about her."
"As a best friend," she adds. "I feel like she can really open up to Malika, you know, spend some time."
Maybe. But some people are too embarrassed by personal indecision to open up, even to a best friend.
Honestly, the funniest part about all of this is that Kim segues into this "candid" conversation by talking about their experiences with mediums in Bali.
She talks about how one reading that she received told her that she would have another boy -- and that he would be her father reincarnated.
We have to wonder if Kim is going to spend her literal entire life wondering if baby Psalm is actually her father reborn.
Oh wait, maybe Psalm will see this episode one day, or at least hear about this reading from someone.
That would be a hell of a thing to grow up hearing.
Say this about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West:
They are nothing if not reliable.
One week after welcoming their fourth child (via surrogate), the world famous couple has announced the little boy's name...
... and it may not be Bear, as some social media users had suspected, but it is highly unusual.
Are you ready, readers?
Are you ready to say hello to PSALM WEST?!?
Kardashian revealed her fourth child’s name on Twitter and Instagram this afternoon, several days after simply telling the world that "he's here and he's perfect."
She did so in form of a text conversation with her husband, as you can see below:
“Beautiful Mother’s Day with the arrival of our fourth child. We are blessed beyond measure. We have everything we need,” West wrote, to which Kim simply wrote "Psalm West."
And now this question is answered.
Psalm joins siblings North, Saint and Chicago in a family full of kids whose names are also nouns.
That's not a statement of judgment, it's just a fact.
Prior to this announcement, folks had started to believe that child number-four would be named "Bear" because Kim had included a bear emoji along with photos from her recent baby shower.
The mother of four followed her baby name reveal a few minutes later with an update on the week-old, adding simply:
“He’s also Chicago’s twin lol I’m sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her.”
Psalm was born via surrogate on May 9, 2019. He siblings are aged five, three and 16 months.
In April, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star said she was considering naming her son after her brother, Rob Kardashian.
“But then it’s like, North, Saint, Chicago, Rob,” Kim told Jimmy Kimmel at the time while a guest on his talk show.
“It doesn’t really go. I really was feeling like that, or Robert. And my brother approved it, so that’s, like, our one kind of name. I like Rob West.”
So do we.
But Kim is right: Once you've gone with North, Saint and Chicago, you really have no choice but to follow those up with something like... Psalm.
As of right now, we don't believe the child has a middle name.
We actually don't think any of Kim's kids have a middle name.
Will any siblings join this ever-growing immediate family? It doesn't sound that way.
"Kim and Kanye have known for awhile and are very excited. They had one male embryo left and are thrilled it has worked out," a source previously told E! News, adding back then:
"Kim always wanted four kids and having two boys and two girls feels perfect.
"They were very happy with the entire experience the first time and are so grateful to have one more baby."
As for how she and Kanye arrived at the name Psalm?
Kim has not yet said.
However, she did try to explain the process to Kimmel a short while back:
“We all weigh in. I definitely take a family survey, but it’s usually after the baby’s born and we’re trying to figure out what the baby looks like.
"I usually go about three or four days nameless until I feel that it really connects with me.”
So we guess this one looks like a Psalm, huh? Interesting.
The question now: Where should we rank this name against the other unusual ones chosen by Kim and her loved ones?
Recent episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians have shown the family vacation in Bali.
The eps have Kim feeling nostalgic, so she shared a series of photos that she and Kanye took at a "sanctuary" for elephants.
But some alarming details in the images caused an outcry from fans who saw clear signs of elephant abuse. What was Kim thinking?!
Kim Kardashian shared a series of three lovely but controversial photos to Instagram.
In the images she -- and in one instance, her husband, Kanye -- are standing alongside an elephant in an alleged elephant "sanctuary" in Bali.
"Missing Bali!" Kim writes in her caption.
"And," she continues. "The amazing elephant sanctuary."
Whatever reaction Kim was expecting, she ended up getting a lot of criticism for promoting a place that fans accuse of elephant abuse.
The issue here is that one of these photos clearly shows a man riding on an elephant.
That might sound fun, like you're leading an ancient army to war or reenacting Aladdin.
But it's terrible for elephant spines. Humans can support weight on our backs because we evolved that way, carrying resources and of course children.
Elephant spines are designed to hold up a massive amount of weight, but bearing weight on their backs causes real injuries.
Not everyone knows this, but fans were quick to take Kim to task for promoting what appears to be an abusive "sanctuary."
Even Kim's devoted fans were incensed.
"Delete this post and create a new one admitting you were wrong," demands a comment.
"And to advise millions of people NOT to go to these places," the fan continues.
We would certainly recommend that anyone thoroughly vet an animal "sanctuary" before visiting, including those here in the U.S.
The comment asserts: "It’s beyond cruel and you have now promoted this to millions of people!!!!!"
"No actual elephant sanctuaries have humans riding elephants," another comment correctly points out.
"As it is unethical," the fan explains. "Sitting on an elephants back causes spinal damages, internal health issues, along with distress."
The commenter emphasizes: "I urge you to look into these issues next time you visit so you know the facts"
"Do better research next time," another writes. "Don’t go to fake sanctuaries that chain up elephants and torture/beat them into submission."
"This is not an elephant sanctuary," expresses another.
The fan explains how they can be so certain: "you do not ride elephants in a sanctuary."
That's pretty fair. If you go to a homeless shelter and the residents are busy performing tasks for the owner, it's not a shelter, it's a work camp.
The commenter insists: "do not visit or post about these places when you do not have the right information."
"These are beautiful animals," the fan points out. "That need to be treated with respect not like a toy to ride along and to take an insta pic with. Disgraceful."
"So upsetting to see that you didn’t look into going to an elephant sanctuary where they actually look after the elephants," a fan laments.
The disappointment from people who genuinely like Kim was palpable.
These weren't trolls or PETA trying to get a reaction. These were people expressing their concern and heartbreak.
"Gross," comments another. "It’s not hard to do some research."
Kim took to Twitter to defend herself.
"We visited an elephant sanctuary that has rescued these elephants from Sumatra where they would have otherwise gone extinct,” Kim said.
“It is an organization that is working to save those beautiful animals," she asserted. "We did full research before going."
Notably, this tweet can no longer be found.
Perhaps she realized that her research was not as thorough as she had thought.
Kanye West gave an Easter sermon at Coachella that got a lot of attention.
It will go down in history that Kanye West brought the church to Coachella & the gospel was streamed all over the world on Easter Sunday 2019. A modern day evangelist and a collaborative genius #Coachella
— Ogechi (@OGKardashWest) April 22, 2019
Now, I wasn’t at Coachella but I imagine Kanye mostly played it straight, just talking about how he was crucified and rose from the dead three days later and how his father loves us. Standard stuff for Kanye, really.
Apparently Kanye liked being a preacher because of course he did, he’s Kanye West and people were listening to him talk. According to People, Kanye liked it so much he’s considering starting his own church, and his wife, Kim Kardashian-West, supports him.
“Kim is 100 percent on board with this,” the source tells PEOPLE. “She’s a Christian, too, and she understands the importance of being spiritual.”
It’s nice to know you don’t need any sort of theological training to be a Christian minister. I had long suspected this based on, you know, everything I know about religion but it’s great to have actual confirmation that some rapper standing up and talking about Jesus counts as going to church.
The source adds that West has been consulting with spiritual advisors and leaders as he figures out his next move, and says Kardashian will have a role in whatever he does.
“She wouldn’t be a traditional ‘pastor’s wife’ who organizes bake sales,” the source explains. “But she will support him if he ever starts church. She’ll be there for it.”
I predict Kanyeism is going to be the fastest growing religion in the United States by the end of the year, replacing the current fastest-growing religion, which is atheism. People love celebrities and are willing to do whatever stupid shit they say. Don’t believe me? Jenny McCarthy and Gwyneth Paltrow, two celebrities no one even really gives a shit about said vaccines were bad and now there are measles outbreaks all over the country. So you ma as well just buckle up and get ready for Pope Yeezus.
