It's the reveal we've been waiting months for, and on Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 14 Episode 14, Khloe Kardashian finally revealed the news to her family.
While Khloe may currently be six months pregnant, the episode was recorded back when she was just six weeks pregnant.
When the episode got underway, Khloe dished the good news to her assistant, Alexa Okyle.
“I’m pregnant,” Khloe revealed emotionally, and you could tell she was excited, but cautious about the news.
The Revenge Body host then went into detail about the moment Tristan was told the good news via Facetime.
“He was like, ‘Wait are you kidding or serious?’” she recalled.
Instead of going guns blazing to tell all to her family, Khloe opted to hold off the news until an upcoming family barbecue. That meant just Khloe, Tristan, Alexa and some production members were in the know about it.
Later, Kourtney Kardashian grew concerned over Khloe's diet regime because Khloe had gained some weight.
“You’ve gained a few pounds,” Kourtney said. “Have you amped up the eating since Tristan’s been back?”
Luckily, Khloe revealed all to her family shortly after. At the barbecue, Khloe cradled niece Dream Kardashian as she plucked up the courage to tell everyone.
“We’re so lucky and blessed to have everyone here … we’re having a baby,” she said in a real tearjerker of a scene.
It was evident Kris Jenner was ecstatic by the news, and it was almost like she breathed a huge sigh of relief when she got the news.
Either that or she realized she could make the family a whole lot of money from a dual pregnancy.
“I always thought that Khloe would may be one of those women who never had kids,” Kris confirmed to the cameras.
The topic of conversation quickly turned to the due date, and Khloe confirmed, “I’ll be six weeks on Tuesday.”
Given that the show is far behind on the pregnancy news, we may need to wait a long time to see the offspring on KUWTK.
Kylie Jenner did not grace her family with her presence at the event, so she was told the news via Facetime. Kylie seemed overjoyed but continued to remain coy about her own pregnancy.
Seriously, what's the holdup, Kylie?
Maybe we'll get another two-night event to confirm the 20-year-old has a bun in the oven. Either that or she'll use it to plug Life of Kylie because that show did not exactly kill it in the ratings.
The other big shocker from the episode did not involve any pregnancy news. It was all about Kim Kardashian.
The 37-year-old confirmed that her glam squad would continue to work even she was in a coma. The reason?
Kardashian had glam squad requests in her will. Yes, it makes sense that Kim would want to continue to look good when she has no control over her body.
Aside from those two developments, the producers could have easily added five minutes on to Sunday's episode with all of the details.
What did you think of the reveal?
Hit the comments below!
Keeping Up with the Kardashians continues Sunday on E!
Loyal readers of The Hollywood Gossip will know we don't say the following very often.
So take note of the time and date and remember where you were when these words were written, okay?
Here we go...
... you tell 'em, Kim Kardashian!
Indeed, we are actually on the side of this reality star for once in the face of criticism she's facing for allegedly abandoning her son when he needed her most.
As previously reported, poor little North West spent two nights in the hospital last week after being diagnosed with pneumonia.
This can be a pretty serious health issue for anyone, let alone a two-year old with an immune system that is not yet fully formed.
In writing about this scare, TMZ noted that Kim and Kanye West took turns sitting by North's bedside, implying the former wasn't with her child the whole time he was sick.
Moreover, photos of Kim celebrating New Year's Eve gave some fans the impression that she was partying instead of tending to her son.
This rumor finally made its way back to the mother of two on Wednesday and this is how she responded:
"I haven't heard this BUT lets get this straight," Kardashian Tweeted, adding forcefully::
"I did not leave my son for one minute during his hospital stay. We were there Wednesday night to Saturday. NYE WAS SUNDAY NIGHT.
"People came over when he was already asleep for the night! Don't even try me when it comes to my kids."
Like we said above:
You tell 'em, Kim Kardashian!
The former sex tape star has given critics plenty to slam her over, from her frequent nude photos to her constant emphasis on weight loss to her general philosophy of trying to profit off absolutely EVERYthing.
But she's a great mother. Full stop.
Kim has never given us a reason to doubt she adores her children.
Can she be petty when it comes to her feud with Taylor Swift? Absolutely.
But, again, this has nothing to do with her dedication to motherhood.
Heck, Kim and Kanye have embraced being parents to such an extent that they will soon do so again:
Via surrogate, the superstars are about to welcome a third child into their family.
And we have no doubt they will shower this (rumored) little girl with love and affection.
So back off, haters. Find another reason to bash the heck out of Kim Kardashian.
Don't make assumption about her or her kids and definitely do not judge a situation you know nothing about.
The Kardashians and Jenners have unveiled a new holiday card...
... actually, allow us to amend this statement:
Most of the Kardashians and Jenners have unveiled a new holiday card.
In an image shared across the social media accounts of all featured above, Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian all are posing for the camera.
(Most are doing so in very serious and dramatic fashion for some reason, too.)
But no Internet user out there cares very much about these women.
They only care about the one woman NOT in the picture.
We speak, of course, about Kylie Jenner.
Just like she was absent from the Kardashian Christmas card, despite rumors that she would reveal her pregnancy on the final version, Kylie is absent from this family photo as well.
And lest you think her absence is just something celebrity gossip sites are fixated on, as we attempt to stir up controversy where there is none, consider what Kourtney wrote as a caption on Instagram:
When you can’t find the rest of the family for the photo ...
This is clearly a reference to Kylie's whereabouts.
The 20-year old is expecting her very first child with semi long-time boyfriend Travis Scott.
But Kylie is yet to say a word about the bun in her oven, choosing instead to basically go radio silent on Twitter and Instagram ever since the news went viral.
This decision has irritated her followers, many of whom just wish to send Jenner their best wishes. They cannot do so, however, until she actually verifies the pregnancy herself.
Heck, the choice to keep mum has even led to a few crazy theories, such as some speculating that Kylie is Kim's surrogate... and others thinking she has already had the baby.
We doubt either of these rumors are true.
But Kylie is Internet savvy.
She should realize that her ongoing silence on the issue is simply generating more and more chatter.
Why doesn't she just set the record straight? Why doesn't she confirm the news and announce her due date and watch the congratulations roll in?
There are two possibilities:
- She is just incredibly ashamed over this whole development and remains in some kind of denial.
- This is all part of a media strategy to be mysterious and quiet and then spring her baby bump (or the baby itself!) on folks once anticipation has reached its peak level.
For the record, we hear Jenner is due in February and is having a girl.
Elsewhere, with Khloe also expecting and Kim said to welcome her third child via the aforementioned surrogate, there's a new rumor out:
Could Kendall Jenner ALSO be pregnant?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
The above selfie has people wondering because maybe, possibly there's a baby bump there.
The model, though, has denied this crazy theory, joking online in response that she just "likes bagels" and, we guess, recently ate some.
We likely believe her.
But take another look at the family photo at the outset of this article.
Kendall is standing in the back, her belly covered up by the relatives in front of her.
Could this be because she's hiding something?!?
We're just asking.
Kim Kardashian has shared a new picture on her Instagram and Facebook pages, and it's worth noting for two reasons:
1. It features Kim, her husband and both of their kids, something we do not see very often.
2. Kanye West is smiling in the snapshot. Or at least smirking! For real!
See for yourself:
Kim shared the photo along with a very simple caption that read "Happy Holidays."
It's nothing too special or newsworthy, but this is Kim Kardashian and this is social media, so the photo has been Liked over 72,000 times in just a few hours on Facebook.
Kardashian and West have actually lived a mostly quiet life in 2017.
They concluded last year on quite the low note, of course, with Kim getting robbed at gunpoint in Paris and then Kanye suffering a nervous breakdown mere weeks later.
These traumatic events left both stars shaken.
For a few months afterward, divorce rumors plagued Kimye, as multiple outlets and tabloids wrote that these incidents were simply too much for the couple to handle.
Word spread that the pair were drifting apart.
There was even a rumor just this month that Kardashian was ready to file for divorce.
We aren't buying it, however. Why would we?!?
First of all, Kanye just gifted his wife with over $500,000 in stocks, which does not seem like the actions one would take if one were about to get a divorce.
Second, Kanye actually struck some poses for the family Christmas card, as you can see above.
He didn't make the cut for the final version, which left us a little confused and concerned, but still. There's one final, very strong reason to believe this romance is doing just fine.
And that reason is this:
Kim and Kanye will soon welcome child number-three!
As has now been confirmed by Kardashian herself, a surrogate is pregnant with the baby because doctors deemed it too dangerous for Kim to give birth for a third time.
She actually may be due any day now.
Would Kardashian and West really make this plan if there was any doubt about their romance?
If they believed for one second that they weren't staying together?
We think everyone knows the answers to these questions.
Over the next couple months, meanwhile, Kim and Kanye will welcome their child... Khloe Kardashian will give birth... AND Kylie Jenner will give birth.
So while 2017 was actually pretty tame as far as this famous family goes, it's already pretty clear that they'll be back to making headlines of every kind in 2018.
The feud between Taylor Swift and Kanye West/Kim Kardashian will never die, despite both Taylor and Kim saying they want nothing more to do with each other.
Here’s the quick recap, in case you’ve been living under a rock the past couple of years:
*The VMA incident
*Taylor and Kanye became friends
*Kanye said the line, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous.”
*Taylor was upset by the line and said she didn’t approve it
*Kim released footage of Kanye and Taylor chatting on the phone, where Taylor did approve a similar line
*Taylor said she was upset at the “bitch” part, which was not part of the phone conversation
*Taylor released “Reputation” and included a couple of lines that may or may not be about Kanye, but totally were. The one that stands out is “Friends don’t try to trick you, get you on the phone and mind-twist you.”
*Kim posted the following on Instagram:
And that led to idiots spamming a bunch of rat emojis on Kim’s social media feeds.

That’s where we’re at right now. Instead of snake emojis, which Kim and Taylor both blocked from their respective feeds, Swift fans have turned to rat emojis. This is a feud that is never going to stop until Kanye and Taylor actually have sex. Or at least make a song together. If Eminem and Ed Sheeran can put a track together, I’m sure there is a way for Kanye and Taylor to finally make a track that should have been made years ago when they made up and were friends.
For sake of humanity, put your differences aside so people on the internet stop posting rat emojis to Kim Kardashian’s timeline when she’s just posting pictures of her kid.
As for me, I would like to be excluded from this narrative. Thanks.
Kim Kardashian is back at it again.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has a reputation for hitting up social media with racy snaps to get her fans talking about how drop dead gorgeous she is.
The 37-year-old’s latest attempt to break the internet came in the form of her painted from head-to-toe in glitter and posing in front of her mirror, and there was no clothing in sight!
Have a look for yourself.
It’s a signature Kim Kardashian naked selfie. It has her in front of a mirror, showing off a whole lot of skin.
The only surprising thing about it was that her nipples are all covered up a thin line.
Maybe Kris Jenner had a say in what was shown in the snap and wanted her to free her nipples on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
The snap was taken behind the scenes of a photo shoot she was doing for her KKW cosmetics line. Yes, like most of her family members, Kim is in the cosmetics business, and she makes a whole lot of money from it.
Kardashian also shared another picture of the shoot, and it looked a whole lot more professional than the one that found her in front of a mirror showing everything off.
Doesn’t she look as confident as ever? It’s obvious Kim is comfortable in her skin, and that’s part of the reason why she shows off her body on the internet every so often.
However, we have to admit that this latest naked selfie from the star is somewhat subdued in comparison to her past efforts.
Case in point:
The above picture was shared in 2016 to a mixed reaction from her fans, but it still got her in the headlines and the snap was likely one of the most-viewed on the internet for the year, so it was likely a success to Kris Jenner.
At the time, it was speculated that Kim wanted to show off her post-baby body to show that she was working out like crazy to maintain her physique.
Kim is gearing up to welcome her third child into the world via surrogacy, so maybe she decided to make her latest nude selfie a classier affair. We do not want to be Kim when she has to explain to her kids as grown-ups why the internet is so obsessed with pictures of their mother naked.
Will that be a conversation filmed in front of the reality TV cameras? Considering the family have signed a lucrative new deal with E!, they are likely sticking around for the duration.
Who would have thought they would still be relevant after all these years in the spotlight? It’s crazy, and their popularity does not seem to be waning.
What do you think about this picture?
Sound off below!
Kim Kardashian is not here to pose half-naked for a change.
And we're not here to make fun of Kim Kardashian in any way, shape or form for a change.
That's because the mother of two has just used her Twitter account for something other than personal exposure, alerting her millions and millions of followers to the plight of a young woman named Cyntoia Brown.
"The system has failed," Kardashian Tweeted this week, surprising fans and adding:
"It's heart-breaking to see a young girl sex trafficked then when she has the courage to fight back is jailed for life! We have to do better & do what's right.
"I've called my attorneys yesterday to see what can be done to fix this. #FreeCyntoiaBrown."
This unexpected message has caused many to wonder:
Who is Cyntoia Brown?
Brown was sentenced to life in prison back in 2004 when she was 16 years old.
She was found guilty shooting dead a 43-year old Nashville real estate agent named Johnny Allen after he picked her up for sex.
According to legal documents, Brown said she was forced out on the streets by her boyfriend, a drug-using pimp who went by the named “Kutthroat.”
She said he verbally and physically abused her over the years.
Brown explained after her arrest that Allen showed her his gun collection once they got back to his home.
She says ate dinner with him, watched television and got into his bed with him. From there...
"He grabbed me in-between my legs - he just grabbed it real hard," she told the trial court, adding:
"I'm thinking he's going to hit me or do something like it..."
Brown then said Allen turned over and reached for something at the side of his bed.
She thought he was getting a gun.
She therefore responded in self-defense and shot him in the head with a .40-caliber handgun that Kutthroat had given her.
Brown was tried as an adult, with prosecutors arguing that she attempted to rob Allen (because she left with his wallet and weapons).
The jury found her guilty of first-degree premeditated murder, first-degree felony murder, and aggravated robbery.
She will be eligible for parole when she is 67 years old.
Along with Kardashian, Rihanna and Cara Delevigne have written social media posts about Brown.
They are trying to draw attention to young women such as Brown, who lived a life of violence and abuse before she was even old enough to vote.
Is she really the type of person who must spend decades behind bars?
"To each of you responsible for this child's sentence, I hope to God you don't have children," Rihanna wrote on Instagram about the situation.
"The justice system is so backwards!!! This is completely insane."
While in prison, Brown earned an Associate's Degree from Lipscomb University's in-jail program. She is now working on another degree.
At the time of this writing, a petition seeking a presidential pardon for her has attracted over 186,000 signatures.
Kardashian's Tweet, meanwhile, has been Liked over 379,000 times.
At this point, the fact that Kim Kardashian is pregnant via surrogate might have slipped your mind. After all, this is her third baby.
Mostly, we think that Kim's pregnancy's been overshadowed by the news of Kylie Jenner's pregnancy. Kind of the story of Kim's life, these days.
But she's not letting that stop her from having an epic baby shower. She went all out. And, as you'll see in the video below, North looks too cute for words.
Kim Kardashian shared the news with her Snapchat followers.
"Okay, guys: my baby shower for Baby Number Three."
Baby Number Three doesn't have a name, but we're not in Kailyn Lowry territory yet -- plenty of parents take a while to decide on a name, and most don't share it until the birth.
(We can still speculate. Will this baby get a cardinal direction name, like South or East? Or perhaps another titular name, like ... Darth? We'd say "Sir," but Sir Carter has that covered and the Wests don't need another reason to feud with Beyonce and Jay-Z)
Kim continued her narration:
"It's just a tea for three with a cherry blossom forest."
Sakura trees are iconic for a reason -- they're gorgeous.
As beautiful as the decor was ...
(And those trees looked even better indoors, where the lavender lighting really brought out the best in them)
... The borrowed fashion statements from Japan carried over into certain wardrobe choices.
Most notably: North West.
As we learned on North West's birthday this year, lavendar is so North's color.
But she looks over-the-top adorable in this kimono.
(There's more of her in the video; one still image cannot do this precious four-year-old justice)
North wasn't the only member of the family present, obviously.
The gathering had dozens of attendees, including family members like the queen herself, that paragon of momagers, Kris Jenner.
Kris appeared very excited at the upcoming birth of yet another brandchild. ... Sorry, we mean grandchild.
With Khloe, Kim, and Kylie all pregnant at the same time, Kris is going to have a very busy 2018.
(Just not as busy as her actual daughters; being a grandmother usually means getting the best parts about being a parent without having to deal with tantrums, lost sleep, and teacher conferences)
But she looks absolutely delighted:
And speaking of Kris, she's clearly not the only relative present.
Kim mentioned her grandmother's presence, but ... is this Kendall Jenner whom we spy in the audience?
Not really a question; it's totally Kendall.
We'd know that drop-dead gorgeous supermodel's face from any distance, honestly.
Kim herself is wearing white hair and a white top that bears part of her midriff while her skirt hugs her famous curves.
in this video, taken by guest, fashionista, and businesswoman Miroslava Duma, Kris and North both celebrate the lucky numbers 3 and 7.
We don't think that Kim's planning on seven children, though.
Even with all of their resources to hire help and surrogates ... that's just too much. Right?
Anyway, look at how precious North West is, how gorgeous Kim herself is, and how breathtaking the decor is.
“He’s so predictable — it’s so slimy and gross."
That's Khloe on last night's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and you probably don't need three guesses as to who she's talking about.
Yes, the comment is about Captain Slimy and Gross himself, Scott Disick.
As you likely already know, Scott spent his summer in the throes of an epic bender, during which he slobbered all over a number of young starlets.
Khloe's comments were her response to news of Disick hooking up with Bella Thorne--and like many others she's of the belief that Scott dragged the young actress to Cannes merely to piss off Kourtney Kardashian.
“For Scott, any attention is good attention,” Khloe said on last night's episode.
“He goes, does the thing, I’m his therapist, he feels disgusting,” Kourtney added.
“The energy that I put into him, I need to put into my kids.”
Yes, Kourtney is still making time for Scott's BS.
And it seems she's not the only one who continues to play Frasier Crane to Disick's Seattle.
Kim Kardashian was all ears as the Lord griped about the anguish of getting drunk all over Europe and hooking up with the world's hottest women.
“But look at it [from] my perspective: She was on vacation with one man, a whole trip," Scott said of receiving news that Kourtney is dating Younes Bendjima.
"That looks like a happier scenario than me, jumping around trying to find happiness and these girls are not fulfilling that. I’m just not happy with anybody," he added
“Like, if Kourtney met someone, fell in love and got married and then everyone’s like, ‘Eh, we have a new Scott — we don’t really need to be close with him anymore,’" Scott went on.
“Even though I get it — we have kids [together]. But it’s a scary thing for me.”
Speaking to the camera, Kim revealed that she believes Scott is having a hard time adjusting to the single life:
“It’s taking him a little big longer — or a lot longer — than Kourtney,”
We would take the non-stop partying as a sign that he's doing just fine, but what do we know?
"I don’t live the cleanest-looking life. I’m a guy. I’m a little younger," said the 34-year-old father of three in justifying his actions.
"Maybe the way I’m getting over her is a drop different, and it’s hard."
Hilariously, Scott went on to say that he'd like to have more kids with Kourtney.
Hopefully, her sisters staged an off-camera intervention to prevent that from ever happening.
But it's not all bad decisions and regret for the ladies of the Kard clan these days.
Khloe's new boo Tristan Thompson made a KUWTK cameo last night, and things are going so well for these two that Khloe is willing to pretend she doesn't hate every second of life in Cleveland.
“I’m so happy that Tristan wants everyone front and center supporting to him, and that’s what matters to him,” said Khloe said.
“I love that — that he knows that none of this bulls--t is real. But sometimes I just need the reminder.”
Yes, the Kards have reached the point in their fame where they can refer to the show that made them famous as "bulls--t."
It's the reality star equivalent of when Trump bragged about being able to gun someone down on Fifth Avenue with no consequences.
Of course, these days, Khloe is pregnant with Tristan's baby, so we guess the relationship is legit.
Hopefully, for her sake, Khloe's opinion of Cleveland isn't entirely BS.
Watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians online for more of the K-clan's ups and downs.
Kim Kardashian has a very simple explanation for why she dressed as Aaliyah for Halloween this year.
In a lengthy note on her website, the reality star says she meant no offense by wearing an ensemble that invoked the late R&B singer because she didn't even realize Aaliyah was African-American.
Kardashian came under pretty harsh fire this week for channeling Aaliyah, who tragically died in a plane crash back in 2002.
A lot of the criticism centered on the concept of cultural appropriation and how some critics thought Kim wasn't respecting Aaliyah's ethnicity...
... she was just exploiting it instead for her own self-serving purposes.
The backfire stemmed from a video Kim shared on Instagram last Sunday in which she donned a glimmering bra and large rhinestone choker, including with the footage a caption that simply read:
"Baby Girl Aaliyah."
Wrote one Twitter user in angry response:
"Legend or not Aaliyah is a black woman and you’re not. It’s offensive and you shouldn’t push this limit."
In our view, it was stranger that Kardashian dressed up as a dead singer (something she actually did TWICE this week) than it was she dressed up as a person of color.
Except in certain circumstances, it's just weird to use something as awful as a fatal plane crash as the basis for your Halloween costume.
But here is how Kim defended her decision.
“When I was deciding what I wanted to be for Halloween this year, I had a lot of ideas that I narrowed down to musical icons and my second costume was Aaliyah,” Kardashian wrote on her website yesterday, adding:
“The look was inspired by what she wore in her ‘Try Again’ music video.
"I wore a custom bra top and J Brand leather pants. Ariel Tejada did my makeup and Chris Appleton did my hair."
Continued the mother of two:
“Aaliyah was such an amazing singer and she will forever be a music legend.
"I saw online that some people thought my costume was in poor taste and I am truly sorry if that offended anyone."
When Kim thinks of Aaliyah, she says she only thinks about her in the context of her impressive career and influence.
“When I was creating the costume, I wasn’t dressing up as a race or culture but rather as a woman whom I will always admire.
"I play every kind of genre of music in my home and I like for my kids to be exposed to many different artists."
Last year, North West dressed up like Axl Rose.
Kim referenced both of these costumes in her conclusion:
“For me, it’s always about love and respect. I loved that Kourtney was Michael Jackson for one of her costumes, and that my son was Axl Rose.
"We don’t see color in my home. We were paying homage to people and artists we love and respect it’s that simple!”
Oh, Kim. You had us on your side until the end there.
You don't see color?!? Come on now.
First, you actually joked with Jennifer Lawrence this week that you're only attracted to black genitalia.
Second, there's nothing wrong with seeing color. The idea isn't too ignore other ethnicities and cultures, it would actually be disrespectful to pretend they don't exist.
The idea is just to treat everyone equally and fairly and with respect.
What do YOU make of this Kim Kardashian costume controversy, readers?
Jennifer Lawrence hosted Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, and she did a pretty good job. You can check out her monologue where, once she gets used to the rhythm of the cue card guys, she delivers a few funny jokes and does a great woman on the street segment.
But the highlight of the program was probably when she had Kim Kardashian on and recounted a story about getting completely naked in Kris Jenner’s closet. Hmmm. Naked with Kris Jenner and in the closet. That sounds so familiar but I can’t quite put my finger on why.
Kim is apparently blonde for some reason now, and it’s not working for her. She needs to fix that. What did, work, however, was the insane story the two shared in the first segment, which Us Magazine transcribed.
“I remember getting naked in your mom’s closet and ordering you to dress me,” she said. “I looked amazing, as you could see in that video. Is my memory correct? Did you call Kanye to come up in the closet? Did you want him to style me?”
“You said, ‘I’m not joking! I really want Kanye to style me!’” the social media mogul reminded her friend. “And so I said, ‘OK,’ and then I come back in and you’re fully butt naked!”
What the fuck did Kanye West do to deserve being surrounded by beautiful naked women all the time?
Oh yeah, he did that. Good for Kanye. I like that dude.
Kim and JLaw also talked about Kim’s time as a “hacker”, where she basically used phone number spoofing to get other people’s voicemails. Lawrence followed up by asking Kim “So do you think that you could like, hack, like, a president’s Twitter and maybe like stop a war? Like you could save the world… in theory.” Of course, Kim immediately called the leader of North Korea “Kim John Une” so we probably shouldn’t be pinning our hopes on her.
There's a fine line between paying respect and being offensive.
And many Internet users think Kim Kardashian just crossed it.
The reality star has always embraced Halloween nearly as much as Heidi Klum, often dressed up in multiple costumes every year.
Just consider ALL THESE PHOTOS of the A-Lister as a mermaid, as Anna Wintour and even as a version of herself.
This year, Kardashian appears to have chosen a theme for her various looks: music.
She was spotted out at a party all decked out as Cher on Friday, for example, with best friend Jonathan Cheban doing his best Sonny Bono impression.
Sort of random, but definitely harmless, right?
Folks are not saying the same about Kim's latest ensemble.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians mainstay posted a picture of herself dressed as the late artist Aaliyah in a glimmering bra and large rhinestone choker Sunday, captioning the sexy video as follows:
"Baby Girl Aaliyah."
The beloved R&B singer was killed at the age of 22 in a plane crash and it's certainly a bit strange for Kim to actually base a costume around this dead star.
As far as we know, Kim was not especially close to Aaliyah, who passed away in 2001, and, what else can we say... it's just odd to dress up like a late celebrity, isn't it?
Especially when you try to be all sexy and seductive in the costume, as Kim is clearly attempting here.
We're not alone in this assessment, either.
Considering Aaliyah was also African-American, critics have jumped all over Kardashian for what they consider to be cultural appropriation.
This is a charge that has been leveled in the past against Kendall and Kylie Jenner and it means that someone isn't respecting another culture...
... he or she instead is exploiting it for his or her own selfish purposes.
"Legend or not Aaliyah is a black woman and you’re not. It’s offensive and you shouldn’t push this limit," wrote one Twitter user in response to this outfit.
Others were equally direct and harsh:
To be fair, however, Kardashian does have her defenders.
Writes one person:
"Kimberly Kardashian West looks great dressed as Aaliyah. THAT is how you pay respect without doing Blackface. Great job @KimKardashian!"
"The people mad that Kim K. dressed up as Aaliyah only know the chorus to One In A Million. Shut Up. Stop Being Bitter."
Where do you stand?
Is Kardashian honoring Aaliyah? Offending her memory? Or just being very strange with this costume choices?
Poor Kim Kardashian ...
It really, truly seems like, at least when it comes to getting robbed, the girl just can't catch a break.
It's been a year now since she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris, an ordeal that clearly traumatized her.
After that night, Kim made a whole lot of changes is nearly every aspect of her life: she cut back on things she shared on social media, and she also cut back on her material possessions.
She's said that the robbery made her appreciate the things that are important in life, and as strange as it may seem, money and all the things it can buy really just aren't so important to her anymore.
But even though she's changed so much, she's obviously still very, very wealthy.
And even though her wealth isn't as big a part of her life as it once was, it still makes her a target for criminals.
That's why, early yesterday morning, a man tried to pull off another robbery at her Bel Air home.
Around 4:00 on Friday morning, this guy went through several cars parked at the bottom of Kim's driveway, and he came away with an iPhone that belonged to someone on her staff.
He may have intended to get more of a haul in their actual house, but we'll never know -- armed security guards approached him after he got into the cars, and he ran.
An arrest hasn't been made yet, but police are searching for him, and they know exactly what he looks like, thanks to a clear shot from Kim's security cameras.
All in all, this robbery wasn't nearly as serious as the one Kim experienced in Paris.
There's a very good chance she wasn't even aware anything happened until well after the fact.
Unfortunately, it sounds like she's still pretty shaken by what happened.
According to a source who spoke with Hollywood Life, "Kim is dealing with pretty severe anxiety right now."
Which, hey, understandable.
"This ended well and everyone is safe," the source explained, "but it's triggered her PTSD. She's experiencing the trauma from the Paris attack all over again."
"If this had happened a few years ago it would have been upsetting but it wouldn't have triggered her this badly."
Poor Kim "already has so much trouble sleeping at night, worrying about someone breaking in and this has just confirmed her worst fears."
"People are circling, trying to get at her and her family."
That seems a little dark, but it easy to imagine why she might feel this way.
"Yes, her security can handle this and the guy never actually got in the house," the insider acknowledges, "but that hasn't stopped her from imagining the worst; it's traumatic."
We bet it is.
Hopefully the man who did this will be found soon, and hopefully Kim can start feeling more secure even sooner.
On the Season 14 (yes, fourteen) premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians last night, Kendall Jenner took heat for that Pepsi commercial.
Meanwhile, Caitlyn dropped a bombshell, and Kim and Kourtney wondered about the newest developments in Khloe's personal life.
As always, Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 14 Episode 1 was filmed months ago, so we're familiar with a lot of these events.
This is our first behind-the-scenes look, however.
If you watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online, you weren't introduced to Tristan Thompson for the first time last night.
You already know Khloe has been with the Cleveland Cavaliers star for awhile - and that she's now expecting their first child.
Still, this was a re-introduction of sorts for the pair.
“It’s a much simpler life and I actually crave it,” Khloe said of the couple's laid-back relationship. “A lot of cooking and cleaning.”
“We stay home and we watch TV,” he added.
Kim wasn't a big fan of Khloe changing her life for a man, telling Kourtney behind Khloe’s back that this isn't the first time, either:
“She does put her whole life on hold for a guy.”
While this was going on, the Kendall Jenner Pepsi ad fallout was in full swing, as the model became the Internet's target over the spot.
The incredibly tone-deaf spot (above).
Kendall was devastated by the reactions, saying, “It’s a huge company. The people I was following … Michael Jackson’s done it."
"Britney Spears has done it. Beyoncé has done it. Pink. I trusted everyone. I trusted the teams," she said of her decision to take part.
"But," she concedes, "after I saw the reaction and I read what people had to say about it, I most definitely saw what went wrong.”
Kendall never specifically mentioned or explained the reasons why it went "wrong" or people hated the ad, nevertheless kept apologizing:
“I feel really bad that anyone was ever offended ... This was taken such a wrong way. … I have no idea how I’m gonna bounce back from it.”
“I would never purposely hurt someone ever. … If I knew this was gonna be the outcome I would have never done something like this.”
Kim advised her to be “real and honest” about and use this as an opportunity to “grow.” Unfortunately, her dad made that more difficult.
Kendall lamented that Caitlyn told the media how the ad was misguided, saying “My dad doesn’t actually know what happened."
"She wouldn’t know," the 20-year-old beauty said. "She was not in the works of it and she was not behind-the-scenes with it.”
Speaking of Caitlyn, or more specifically, Caitlyn’s book, Kim was reading it and that opened up the floodgates to a lot of feelings.
Khloe spoke about her estrangement from Caitlyn, lashing out, “It’s not ’cause you’re trans. That’s not why I’m not talking you."
"It’s because you’re a bad, mean person.”
Harsh, but we see where she comes from.
Kim suggested some deception, too: “Clearly she gave me a different book with everything edited out that she didn’t want us to see.”
She had received an advance copy of the memoir penned by the former Bruce Jenner, but apparently, the final version was quite different.
Even Kris Jenner was taken back by it.
“I never had any idea … I never would have done this to my kids … I’m always the last to know,” she said, echoing a familiar theme.
Finally, Kourt revealed that she still may want to have more children with her sometimes-estranged baby daddy, Scott Disick.
We hope this was secretly filmed two years ago and the editors mixed up the seasons in which it aired, but sadly we doubt it.
Scott, as we know, has been drinking himself stupid for a long time now while rotating through a harem of teenage models.
Not exactly father figure material, and while he's always displayed these tendencies ... it's surprising Kourtney would say this now.
“I feel like I would if the situation was right. But that doesn’t mean tomorrow," she said ... and really, here's hoping there is no tomorrow.
For that hypothetical, at least.
Nearly one year ago, the life of Kim Kardashian changed forever.
We don't mean to sound overly dramatic, but that's what happens when you get robbed at gunpoint.
As you've very likely heard all about by now, the reality star was in Paris for that city's Fashion Week last October when multiple men broke into her apartment and tied her up.
They threatened her life while demanding to know where she kept her expensive jewelry.
In subsequent interviews, Kardashian has said she thought she would be raped and/or killed.
Forget all the jokes one typically makes about this mother of two, or all the ways in which she should be deservedly mocked... this was an unimaginable experience.
Kim has reacted to it by scaling back her use of social media and by receding from the spotlight a bit.
She won't be attending Paris Fashion Week this year, either, as she continues to try and move on from the frightening incident.
But she just receive a stark reminder of it.
Per TMZ, the man who orchestrated this armed attack against Kardashian, Aomar Ait Khedache, actually wrote a letter to his victim this week.
The note was handwritten in French and sent to Kardashian’s legal team. This is an excerpt from it:
"After observing your emotion and realizing the psychological damages I inflicted ... I decided to write to you, not to obtain from you some sort of indulgence."
"I want to come to you as a human being to tell you how much I regret my gesture, how much I have been moved and touched to see you in tears."
Did Khedache pen this letter out of true remorse?
Does he really feel guilty for what he and his fellow robbers put Kardashian through?
We have strong doubts.
You see, Khedache is about to go to trial. This letter was first sent to the judge in his case, who sent it on to Kardashian’s attorneys.
The most likely scenario here is that Khedache is trying to win favor with the court ahead of potential sentencing; not that he simply decided to write to Kim out of the goodness of his heart.
"Know that I fully sympathize with the pain you are enduring, your children, your husband, and your close ones," the letter also reads, concluding:
"I hope that this letter will allow you to forget little by little the trauma that you suffered by my fault."
Kardashian had over $10 million in jewelry stolen in this robbery.
She basically went into hiding for months afterward.
You can go back and watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online to hear her talk about the ordeal last season, as it was the primary storyline each Sunday night on E! for weeks.
We hope she's doing a lot better these days.

Kris Jenner is an idiot, more on that in a second. Today comes news that Khloe Kardashian is pregnant. This is a couple of days after Kylie Jenner revealed her pregnancy with Travis Scott.
Khloe’s baby daddy is supposedly Tristan Thompson. Does anyone else wonder if he got paid to impregnate Khloe? I do. At the same time, Khloe is supposedly so in love with Tristan that she foots a lot of his bills. Even though he’s a multi-million dollar basketball player. So, she probably wanted his baby too.
TMZ says Khloe is three months pregnant. Unlike Kim Kardashian, Khloe conceived hers naturally. As naturally as you can expect three pregnancies to happen to a reality star family that needs news like this to stay relevant.
What’s idiotic is that Kris Jenner probably wanted this to happen. Three pregnancies, all at the same time, even though none of the women like the guy they’re with. From Blind Gossip:
We told you a couple of years ago that this mother’s dream publicity scenario was to have three pregnancies at once in her family. She just could not get three of her kids to do this at the same time! The fact that not a single member of the family is happily married does not matter to her. She NEVER gave up on this story line, and has been pushing for it ever since.
She’s now got two. We’re waiting for that third shoe to drop!
And now Kris Jenner has her beloved story line. She sold out her kids and now will use her upcoming grandchildren to maintain her fame. I feel sorry for Khloe, Kim and Kylie. Kris doesn’t care about anything but staying famous, staying on TV, making money selling out her family because she can’t do anything else.
She should go all out and recruit O.J. Simpson once he gets paroled. Bring “Uncle O.J.” back into the mix, put him on whatever reality show Kris will dream up for her three pregnant cash cows and cash in.
Who says the American Dream is dead??
Some breakups are pretty amicable and the two parties remain friends.
But others? Well.... others are less than amicable.

We've been hearing report after report about Kim Kardashian's mystery surrogate pretty much all summer long.
And goodness, what a fun time it has been.
We've heard that the surrogate is pregnant, and that she'll be giving birth to Kim and Kanye's third child sometime in January.
We've even heard that the next Kimye baby will be another girl.
Thanks to the latest report about this woman carrying the next spawn of Kimye, we even know that she's in her twenties, and she's a mother to two of her own children.
And while many of these reports have come from credible sources, neither Kim nor Kanye have personally discussed the matter.
Or at least they hadn't!
Kim is currently in New York for Fashion Week, and while she was at an event, she decided to confront the rumors for the first time.
"I've definitely seen a lot of things, we've never confirmed anything," she told E! News.
"So, I think when we're ready to talk about it we will, and I think it's super invasive when people are just ... So many details out there, and like I've never heard this, I've never heard this."
"Like, whatever," she added.
"We have not confirmed it, and that's that. I'll let you know when we're ready."
Even though Kim repeats that they haven't confirmed the story yet, her statement is actually a confirmation all on its own, right?
After all, she says that all the reports have been "super invasive," which is kind of fair, but why would she say that if the reports were completely made up?
Also, she closes the matter by saying "I'll let you know when we're ready," which sounds to us like something is going on, but she's not ready to open up about it yet.
We know that Kim was desperate to get pregnant with her and Kanye's third child, but it simply wasn't able to happen -- or it was seriously unsafe -- thanks to all the health problems that have come with her pregnancies.
In earlier episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she's also admitted how scary it would be for her to trust someone else with something as precious as her baby.
So maybe this is kind of a tough situation for her, you know? That would make sense.
Maybe she wants to be 100% sure that things are going well, and that her surrogate won't cause any issues before acknowledging the situation.
If that's the case, then we can definitely support that.
But still, congratulations on that new baby girl, Kim!
As has been previously confirmed, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West really are having a third child.
Via surrogate, that is.
Following multiple months of rumors and speculation, a source close to the famous couple revealed on Wednesday that Kim and Kanye have hired a woman to give birth to their fifth immediate family member.
Moreover, we know when this surrogate is due:
Kimye will become parents again in January.
How exciting, right?!?
And now we can contribute another vital tidbit to this initial report:
According to TMZ insiders, Kim and Kanye will welcome a baby girl into the world in very early 2018!
Neither superstar has spoken out specifically about the surrogacy, which is pleasantly surprising.
For a celebrity who shares absolutely everything with the public, it's nice to see Kardashian is taking this major life step seriously, while also respecting the privacy of her surrogate.
All we know at the moment is that she's a twenty-something from San Diego.
The baby to whom she has agreed to carry to term on behalf of Kardashian and West will join four-year old daughter North and 21-month old son in the busy household.
Kim has said several times that she'd love to have more children, but she suffered dangerous complications with both her earlier pregnancies.
“It would be a really dangerous environment for me if I were to get pregnant again," Kim said last year, adding that her husband is very much on board with another child.
"Kanye has been mentioning" the prospect of another kid every day for over a week, Kim told sister Khloe on the latter's short-lived talk show in 2016.
Under the terms of their arrangement with the unnamed surrogate...
... Kim and Kanye will pay $45,000 in ten $4,500 monthly installments.
... will also pay $5,000 for each additional baby in the case of multiples.
... will pay $4,000 if surrogate loses reproductive organs.
In exchange for these payments, the surrogate has agreed to various health-related terms, such as no drinking or smoking while pregnant.
“This was always the plan," a source tells Entertainment Tonight, explaining that the surrogate was found and hired by the stars in June.
"After the complications with the other pregnancies, they knew they wanted to go the surrogacy route for the next baby,” the source adds.
“They took their time finding the right woman to carry their baby and of course they are being very hands-on during this process.”
We're so very happy for Kardashian and West.
No, really, we are!
It's easy to mock these superstars for a variety of reasons, but no one can doubt that they love their children and provide those children with a stable, healthy environment at home.
So if they want to expand? And if they went about it in responsible, legitimate fashion? Hey, more power to them! Mazel Tov!
(Editor's Note: We still reserve the right to make fun of the baby's name if Kim and Kanye go a North or Saint-like route once again.)
I admit, I tend to give the Kardashians a hard time. They’re just such soft targets most days, though. Whether it’s Kylie and Kendall Jenner putting their faces on old Tupac shirts, Kim spending hours talking about a hotel table online without actually looking at it, or Rob being the worst ex-boyfriend ever (a real feat considering their family money comes from defending OJ Simpson), we all kind of see the Kardashians as the butt of a joke, even if it is a big, sexy butt.
Today, I’m going to try something new and be nice to Kim Kardashian. She hasn’t really done anything stupid in a while and the back to back hurricanes hitting the US reminded me of when her husband, Kanye West, went on a telethon for Hurricane Katrina and said “George Bush doesn’t care about black people,” something I sincerely and ironically respect him for.
Kim posted a picture to her Instagram that will be appearing in a forthcoming photo book by famous fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and damn is it gorgeous.
It’s not just that Kim has had two kids and still looks like that. And it’s not just that she’s nude; we’ve all seen Kim Kardashian nude a hundred times from every angle and her leaked sex tape is the most-watched adult video in history.
It’s just a really well-composed photo of a beautiful woman taken by two of the best photographers in the fashion game. The book, which will presumably include an uncensored version of the above photo, will be available September 7th, which is tomorrow. You would think they’d give a name so people would know what to ask for when they get to the store, but Mert and Marcus are famous for their photography, not their marketing prowess.
Kim Kardashian has just done something she's never done before.
Pose naked? Please.
Kim Kardashian has done that an average of, like, six times per year of the past decade.
But pose naked in a tree?
Yes, even for Kim Kardashian, this is a first.
The mother of two young kids shared the risque photo below on both her Facebook page and her Instagram account on Tuesday evening.
"So honored to have been photographed by Mert and Marcus for their book new book! 20 years in the making! It's out on Sept 7th in NYC," she wrote as a caption in both places.
(Mert and Marcus is the working name of two fashion photographers, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, who often work together on a collaborative basis.)
On Facebook, at the time of this writing, the image had received 982 Comments, while it had been liked over 623,000 times in just over an hour.
Yup: folks sure do love it when Kim Kardashian takes off her clothing!
This was first proven true, of course, when the Kim Kardashian sex tape was released and millions of people shelled out money to see her receive an erection from Ray J in her most private of places.
Since then, Kardashian has gone naked for Playboy... and Paper Magazine... and Harper's Bazaar... and nearly revealed her entire birthday suit on a handful of random Tuesdays on Instagram.
A month ago, there had been talk that Kardashian was on a crash diet in order to once again strip down in full public view.
"Kim’s obsessed with dropping a ton more weight and won’t consume more than 700 calories in a day,” an insider told Radar Online at the time, adding:
"She’s punishing herself with intense workouts. She’s pinned up the photos of her chubby butt from earlier this year as inspiration.”
As is often the case, reaction to this sort of Kim Kardashian NSFW image has been mixed:
Some people can't believe how great she still looks.
Other people can't believe an adult mother of two, who is already rich and famous, would continue to get so naked.
Where do you come down? Is this just a woman rightfully proud of her body and showing it off to remain relevant?
Or is this someone desperate for attention who continues to set the women's movement back generations?
Ponder. Decide. Debate.
And then compare this Kim Kardashian nude picture to the great many others from her past below:
Just days after purging her social media, Taylor Swift is preparing her big musical comeback.
Taylor Swift’s “Reputation” album already has a release date, and her new single is expected to drop tomorrow (late tonight, really).
Fans may be rejoicing, but reports say that this news has one person quaking in her heels. Kim Kardashian is right to be afraid. …
Last year, Taylor Swift’s omnipresence in all media for about two years had left her vulnerable, because fans are fickle and overexposure makes some weak-minded people grow tired of people they’d otherwise admire.
Calvin Harris and Taylor broke up, followed by Calvin having a mini-tantrum on Twitter in which he ranted against Taylor, as if she’d wanted to destroy him.
It was then, when Taylor was at her lowest point in years, that Kim Kardashian struck, leaking carefully selected snippets of a shadily recorded phone call between Taylor and Kanye that made it appear that Taylor had lied about her knowledge of Kanye’s planned lyrics.
People who sided with Kim and people who just wanted to see Taylor Swift crash and burn immediately started calling Taylor a “snake,” since dishonesty is associated with limbless reptiles in Western culture.
Taylor basically went silent. She used to attend every show, get every interview. Suddenly, she was playing it shy.
She released a single with Zayn Malik last December, but the title, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” was so unrelatable that I sure didn’t listen to it.
For a time, it seemed that Kim Kardashian and Taylor’s other jealous detractors had won.
We have to say that we love that Taylor Swift’s reaction to all of this was basically modeled after one of our childhood Disney role models: Jafar from Aladdin.
You know, the bit where Aladdin calls Jafar a snake and Jafar responds: “A snake am I? Perhaps you’d like to see how snakelike I can be?” And then transforms himself into a giant snake.
Because after hordes of disloyal fans called Taylor Swift a “snake,” mostly in emoji form, Taylor Swift teased her new album with snake videos.
Sometimes the best thing to do with a vicious and unwarranted attack on your character is to turn it right back against your critics.
We don’t know
So, we know when Taylor Swift’s music is coming out.
Her single drops late tonight, and her album comes out November 10th.
And Kim Kardashian is petrified that Taylor Swift will diss Kanye on that album, HollywoodLife reports.
According to their insider, it’s a major concern:
“One of the few people out there that is not very excited for Taylor Swift’s upcoming music is Kim Kardashian.“
“She feels that she will be attacked along with Kanye in a future song over their past differences and she doesn’t want to deal with the fallout of a Taylor Swift song and what that does to people.”
We love the “past differences” line. Kim Kardashian orchestrated Taylor’s downfall last year.
And Taylor has every right to sing about the man who called her a “bitch” in his lyrics while talking about how he could have banged her if he’d wished.
She has even more right to sing about the woman who waged a public image war against her and forced her out of the spotlight for over a year.
Kim might be regretting that, right about now.
“She doesn’t want to be the focus of anything Taylor related, she hopes that her and Kanye dodge a bullet and Taylor ends up talking about others instead.”
Yeah. Good luck with that.
Well, maybe Taylor will have some choice words about Calvin Harris, but … that’s not going to fill a whole album.
Taylor sings about all sorts of things and may even include songs about her current boyfriend, Joe Alwyn.
But, let’s be honest: it’s hard to imagine her releasing this album without discussing three particular targets:
-Kim Kardashian, the mastermind behind her temporary fall from grace
-Kanye West, who was central to that situation
-the people who turned on Taylor, who betrayed her — both disloyal fans and squadmates who suddenly didn’t find being Taylor’s friend convenient anymore
And let’s not forget that Kanye’s public image isn’t anything close to what it used to be.
You don’t get to say that you didn’t vote and then follow that up with an announcement that you would have voted for Trump and have anyone respect you ever again.
Kanye’s “antics” stopped being funny a long, long time ago.
It doesn’t help that Kanye got basically steamrolled by Jay-Z’s diss track.
Kim and Kanye will probably be able to weather this storm, because they’re rich.
Taylor weathered her own storm, and now it’s Kim’s turn.
We can’t wait until her single drops, late tonight.
We also can’t wait until Taylor’s album, “Reputation,” drops this November.
It’s time again for Taylor Swift to give this wretched world the queen it deserves.
The thing about making most mistakes is that they're learning opportunities. That sounds corny as hell, but it's kinda true.
Kim Kardashian defending Jeffree Star's history of racism was for sure a mistake, and she's been dragged on it all day long on Twitter.
But it looks like she actually listened to the backlash instead of "tuning out the haters," because Kim's put out a new video today where she apologizes for the whole thing. And you can watch that, below.
Okay, so, yesterday Kim Kardashian took to Snapchat to try to shut down her fans and followers from slamming Jeffree Star.
If they'd been reading him for filth over his hair or whatever, that would have been fine.
(Good, even -- one could argue that celebrities who don't say anything when they see their fans bullying someone are complicit in the bullying)
But though they were responding to Jeffree Star insulting Kim Kardashian's latest makeup swatches (he said that they looked like chalk), that wasn't the subject on which they were dragging the famous model and makeup artist.
No, they were going after him like a nest of enraged hornets because of Jeffree Star's history of racism.
See, video of Jeffree Star resurfaced earlier this summer.
In it, Jeffree Star is saying some truly awful, vile things that should never be repeated.
It's mostly a lot of the n-word, folks.
The video is from years and years ago, and Jeffree Star posted a lengthy and seemingly earnest apology.
But ... apologizing doesn't magically make the crappy stuff that you've done go away.\
Now, people can accidentally do or say racist things -- like repeating a bad joke, or adopting a hairstyle that really doesn't belong to their culture and has gotten people of color mocked and fired -- without realizing that they shouldn't.
Ignorance isn't an excuse, but it happens.
You grow up and you change, hopefully.
But direct, unbridled racism? That's not easy to forget.
Or to forgive.
And Kim was absolutely blasted on Twitter for suggesting that people should "get over" Jeffree's troublesome history.\
First of all, because Kim is white and she has zero rights to tell people of color to "get over" racism.
Second of all, because Kim's husband and children are black and, you know, you have to wonder if she'd tell North or Saint that.
As it turns out, Kim didn't know the whole story, as she admits in her apology video below.
"I really wanted to apologize to you guys and my fans for defending a situation yesterday that I really didn't know enough about."
Do your research before you assert something on Snapchat, folks.
Her full apology, during which she admits to having been mistaken and to feeling "really naive," is exactly the right thing to say under the circumstances.
A lot of celebrities enjoy living in a bubble, but really getting to know what people say to and about you on social media can pay off, folks.
On September 24, E! will celebrate 10 years worth of scripted storylines and very bad acting by gathering all Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast members in one place.
Ryan Seacrest will host an anniversary special that features Kim, Kris, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie and Kendall on stage in front of a studio audience, answering questions about the show that made them famous.
And we've got your first look at it below!
This 90-minute special will take fans back through some of the most memorable Keeping Up With the Kardashians moments of all time, while the reality stars share stories and tell never-before-revealed secrets.
"I can't even remember a time before Keeping Up," Kylie admits in this sneak peek.
Elsewhere, Kim adds: "It's like the shade room every day."
The siblings will dish about their exes, past weddings, their famous trips together and so much more.
At one point, Kourtney even hits the streets in disguise to ask fans about her loved ones and the series in general.
"Can you believe those whores have lasted for 10 years?" she asks two men in a scene from the special.
"Since the show's inception ten years ago, viewers have watched the family evolve, grow and become a huge part of today's pop culture zeitgeist," Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Programming & Development at E!, says of the milestone, adding:
"In celebrating the family's decade on the air, we are extremely grateful for the fans all over the world who have ‘kept up' since the beginning."
The show suffered a decline in ratings throughout Season 13, but it won't be going off the air any time soon.
In fact, E! has also confirmed that Season 14 will premiere on Sunday, October 1.
The upcoming season will chronicle "Kim as she re-immerses herself into public life while Khloe's relationship with Tristan Thompson gets even more serious," according to the network, also teasing that Kourtney will "embrace the single life" and Kendall will "find herself under an immense amount of pressure in her career."
But that's down the line. That's looking ahead.

Kanye West wants his money, and he wants it NOW!!!
Back in November 2016, the Yeezus rapper canceled his Saint Pablo tour after he was hospitalized at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital Center for a mental breakdown.
Because of his health issues, Kim Kardashian West's husband was supposed to be paid out by insurance, but never was. Fast forward to Tuesday, he's fighting back!
West's company Very Good Touring, Inc. is suing insurer Lloyd's of London for refusing to cover the contract's non-appearance fee, and wants $9.8 million plus interest.
According to docs, Ye's legal team suspects Lloyd's of blaming his mental collapse on marijuana use:
"Nor have they provided anything approaching a coherent explanation about why they have not paid, or any indication if they will ever pay or even make a coverage decision, implying that Kanye's use of marijuana may provide them with a basis to deny the claim and retain the hundreds of thousands of dollars in insurance premiums paid by Very Good... The stalling is emblematic of a broader modus operandi of the insurers of never-ending post-claim underwriting where the insurers hunt for some contrived excuse not to pay."
Although North West's dad and his team submitted a claim to the company in November, they allegedly did everything in their power to reject coverage!
"Almost immediately after the claim was submitted, Defendants selected legal counsel to oversee the adjustment of the claim, instead of the more normal approach of retaining a non-lawyer insurance adjuster... Immediately turning to legal counsel made it clear that Defendants' goal was to hunt for any ostensible excuse, no matter how fanciful, to deny coverage or to maneuver themselves into a position of trying to negotiate a discount on the loss payment."
Saint Pablo is certainly no Saint when it comes to getting $$$!

The rumor of Kim Kardashian expanding her family isn’t just set to become a reality…
… it’s set to become a reality in the fairly near future.
According to Us Weekly sources, the surrogate hired by Kardashian and Kanye West is already pregnant.
Moreover, she’s over three months along, meaning Saint and North will have a sibling as early as this January.
We know, right?!? WHOA!
The story hasn’t been reported on in several weeks, but Kim and Kanye allegedly agreed in mid-June to hire a woman to carry their third child to term.
They did so because Kim badly wants a large family, yet doctors have advised her that getting pregnant again would be dangerous as a result of her medical condition.
(Kardashian has been diagnosed with placenta accreta.)
“It would be a really dangerous environment for me if I were to get pregnant again,” Kim said last season on Keeping Up with the Kardashians after consulting with a physician.
As a result, TMZ confirms that Kimye chose to pay a surrogate $45,000 in multiple installments.
The arrangement requires the surrogate to agree to certain guidelines (e.g. no drinking or smoking while pregnant; a bonus if she were to produce twins, which has actually been rumored, etc.) in exchange for giving birth to a child that will then be adopted by Kim and Kanye.
The couple has reportedly chosen a San Diego mother in her late 20s, someone who was referred to them by an agency and someone who has served as a surrogate on at least one occasion in the past.
We don’t yet know if she’s pregnant with a boy or a girl.
“I have so many siblings and I love it, they’re my best friends and I would love that for my kids,” Kim told Ellen DeGeneres during a 2014 appearance on her talk show.
However, two pregnancies plagued by Kim’s potentially life-threatening condition prompted her and Kanye to ponder alternative options, rather than enduring another high-risk situation.
At various times over the last year or so, Kris Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian have volunteered to serve as a surrogate for their loved ones, but no one really took those offers too seriously.
This is all pretty darn exciting.
And not just because it will provide Keeping Up with the Kardashians with a storyline that could easily keep it on the air for another two or three seasons.
But we’re talking about another Kimye baby!
We wonder what he or she will look like! We wonder how he or she will fit into the family!
And, yes, we of course wonder what he or she will be named. Really, it could be anything.
Kim Karadashian took pictures with the “Cash Me Outsside” girl. But, in a twist, Danielle Bregoli was simply introduced as a fan.

I’ve never liked Kim Kardashian more.
The two were hanging out at The Polo Lounge when a mutual friend introduced them. Bregoli was skeptical because she had talked bad about Kim and her family. Kim didn’t know who the hell she was, but took a picture anyway, probably assuming that at one point in time, she had talked bad about her family. Seriously, hasn’t everyone talked bad about the Kardashian family at one point in time?
I never thought I’d see the day when Kim Kardashian would be taking pictures with someone who did less to become as famous as her, but here we are. Now, the question is, can Bregoli find someone who did less than her to become famous to take a picture with?
I’m not even sure how you can be less famous than “spoke poorly on Dr. Phil” famous. But even anyone can find that person, it’s Americans on social media.
Get to it, America.
It's not every day that a celebrity of Kim Kardashian's standing has to scramble to shut down rumors over Twitter.
But after fans noticed something suspicious and out-of-place in one of Kim's Snapchat videos, the reality personality and social media star took to Twitter in an effort to quash the story before it could take off.
We'll see if that was enough to put the rumors to rest. ...
So, that looks like a run-of-the-mill still from yet another Kim Kardashian Snapchat video.
She's talking about her products dropping on the 17th and, you know, the usual Kardashian deal.
It's kind of who they are, at this point.
Kim's also, very obviously, using a Snapchat filter that adds a flower crown ... and makes her look like some sort of frightening apparition.
(She can use whatever Snapchat filter she likes just like she can use whatever makeup she likes)
(But ... it looks how it looks, and people are entitled to opinions)
So, that's all business as usual ... except, as some eagle-eyed fans noticed, for something that the mirror reveals.
Look in the reflection, at that black countertop.
Do you see the two streaks of what appears to be some sort of mysterious white powder?
It's in the corner, right over her shoulder.
Some fans immediately wondered if they might be looking at a couple of lines of cocaine.
Today, Kim took to Twitter in an effort to shut down the rumors before they can really take off.
"I do not play with rumors like this so I'm gonna shut it down real quick."
She'll try, at least.
"That's sugar from our candy mess from dylan's candy shop."
So, somebody's sugary treat of some variety left a pair of somewhat linear messes on that countertop, and she didn't think anything of it and didn't want to wait for a cleaning lady to take care of it before plugging her products.
Now, the Kardashians aren't a perfect lot.
Khloe can be controlling, Kendall can be tone-deaf, Rob Kardashian may face criminal charges and his every move seems like an almost comical mistake by an unrelenting dumbass.
But Kris Jenner didn't raise her daughters to carelessly flash drugs on Snapchat, you know?
And, if we're being honest, coke doesn't really seem like Kim's style.
(Is this where we make an obligatory joke about Kendall Jenner's infamous Pepsi commercial?)
(Get it? Because ... coke? You know what, never mind)
Kim's actually way less of a party girl than you'd think.
She claims to not even like the taste of alcohol.
(Though, like, you don't have taste buds on the inside of your nose, but we get the idea)
Also, those look a little spread out to be lines of coke.
We feel like we might actually believe her here.
It's not that we've never been surprised before, but Kim seems too judgmental about even something as simple as drinking to be much of a coke fiend.
(Though some people judge the hell out of others for drinking but don't mind hard drugs, so you really never know)
But, though it wouldn't rule out her covering for someone else, it seems totally plausible that Kim Kardashian being a busybody is her biggest vice.
Kim might regret her tweet, though.
Sometimes nothing fuels rumors more than a denial.
