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.
Catch them ousside. pic.twitter.com/xt6bryl2ho
— KIM's BOO THANG • (@KKWstan) July 14, 2017
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.
Man alive. The Kardashians sure do a number on dudes.
Don't believe us? Just ask this group of nine, whose lives were never the same after the Kardashian and Jenner women finished with them.
Yes, they all landed on this list for different reasons, and no, we're not blaming Khloe & Kompany for people OD'ing in Vegas brothels.
Still, one cannot escape the Kardashian konnection.
Scroll through this list of men whose existences have been forever alerted since they came into contact with this family, and be amazed.
Kanye can probably handle it. The rest of them?
1. Lamar Odom
2. Reggie Bush
3. Jordan Clarkson
4. Scott Disick
5. Kris Humphries
6. Brody Jenner
Kim Kardashian has enough to deal with right now.
We imagine she's still dealing with the trauma of being robbed at gunpoint last October in Paris, and if reports are to be believed, she's expecting a new baby or two via surrogate.
If that weren't enough, her husband, Kanye West, suffered a mental breakdown late last year, and it seems like he's still working on getting himself well.
There are also all those divorce rumors that keep popping up ...
The point is Kim has her plate full these days, and she doesn't need more piled on.
But unfortunately, that's apparently just what Jay Z did when he released his new album last Friday.
The issue is that, in one of the tracks on the album, Jay went after Kanye, and went after him hard.
"I know people backstab you, I feel bad too," he rapped. "But this 'f-ck everybody' attitude ain't natural."
"But you ain't the same, this ain't KumbaYe, but you got hurt because you did cool by 'Ye."
"You gave him 20 million without blinkin'," Jay Z continued. "He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f-ck was he thinkin'?"
"'F-ckin' wrong with everybody?' is what you sayin', but if everybody's crazy, you're the one that's insane."
Pretty rough, right?
It's even rougher for Kim, who, according to a source who spoke to Hollywood Life, "gets very protective of her husband, like a mama bear."
"She thinks it was a low blow to diss Kanye and throw around words like 'insane' after all he's been through."
"Kanye had a real difficult time last year," the source continued, "and is still coming out of it, so to hit him like that wasn't cool."
And you know what? It really wasn't.
To call someone who recently spent some time in a psychiatric facility to get help for some emotional issues "insane" -- especially someone you used to consider a close friend -- really is low.
And if the story wasn't sad enough already, another source added that "Kim is worried sick that Kanye is getting too worked up over this feud."
"She has worked so hard to get Ye to a more stable mental and emotional place and fears the strain of beefing with Jay will cause him to relapse back to an unhealthy mental state."
Kim "really wants Kanye to focus on his health and the family," but "instead he seems more and more concerned with work, money and the tour and that really concerns her."
Yeah, if that's true, it concerns us, too.
It seems like overextending himself was what caused Kanye to have a breakdown in the first place, and it seems like he's doing the same thing all over again.
Why'd you have to go and be petty, Jay Z?
Kim and Kanye have been through a lot. One of them being crazy. The other one being crazy. Both of them being crazy at the same time. Kanye’s rumored presidential run. The Kanye/Trump love connection. But Kim has limits, and she isn’t going to let anyone talk trash about her man, even if that person is Jay-Z.
In the opening track of Jay’s new album “4:44”, there’s one lyric in particular that stands out.
I know people backstab you, I felt that too/But this ‘fuck everybody attitude’ ain’t natural/But you ain’t the same, this ain’t Kumba ‘Ye/But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye/You give him $20 million without blinking/He gave you 20 minutes on stage, fuck what was he thinking?/’Fuck wrong with everybody?’ is what you saying/But if everyone is crazy, you’re the one that’s insane
You catch the references to Kanye? I see it, but hey it’s music, and I’d be inclined to let it go. That’s reportedly not the case with Kim, who a source says is taking things very personally.
“She gets very protective of her husband, like a mama bear,” the source said. “She thinks it was a low blow to diss Kanye and throw around words like ‘insane’ after all he’s been through.” This all was in reference to Kanye’s recent mental health troubles, which have been truly blurring the line between his performative crazy public persona, and maybe actually in need of help problems.
I can see how people, including Jay-Z would be confused by Kanye’s behavior, but Kim knows where she stands.
“Kim would like nothing more than to drop the whole feud and move on with their lives,” the source said. “She likes Bey and Jay and would love to be friends—but it has to be a two-way street. If they aren’t interested then so be it.”
To promote her new makeup line, Kim Kardashian tweeted a photo of herself that was run through an Instagram-like filter. That’s basically the story here. But the world being what it is, she was immediately accused of putting on blackface.
Kardashian took the opportunity to articulately explain the hateful history of blackface, and how it has been used to marginalize African Americans for centuries. I’m just kidding, she said “I was really tan.”
This came at the end of folks on Twitter parsing all sorts of different words, and trying to figure out who meant what. It was an incoherent mess, so the super-sleuth reporters at the New York Times decided to clear things up. Here’s the quote Kim gave them in full:
“I would obviously never want to offend anyone. I used an amazing photographer and a team of people. I was really tan when we shot the images, and it might be that the contrast was off. But I showed the image to many people, to many in the business. No one brought that to our attention. No one mentioned it.”
That’s not exactly an apology, but it’s just so Kim. At the end of the day, people who want to hate her will keep finding a reason to, and her fans will be pretty into this explanation.
Some people are going criticize someone for something no matter what. Case in point, Kim Kardashian. It doesn’t matter what she does, she’s going to get criticized for it because she’s Kim Kardashian, the girl who became famous because she had sex on camera.
In our most recent example, Kardashian is being criticized for some new line of makeup that darkens your skin. Here is the promotional ad tweeted by Kim:
— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) June 14, 2017
Looks like the make-up works. Kim is much darker than I remember.
You dont have to do blackface pic.twitter.com/MLcJ5Hbg9R
— Wynters (@Sacha_Wynters) June 14, 2017
Just a bit of a difference in those two pictures. Saying she’s “doing blackface” sounds like going a bit too far. To me, she’s just using way too much makeup that is designed to make your skin darker. And considering that her whole body is darker, not just her face, I’m 99 percent sure that she doesn’t even use the makeup. She just told the photo editors “darken up my skin so it looks like the makeup works.”
So, calm down everyone. There is no blackface going on here. It’s simply another photoshop designed to sell products.
Earlier this week, Jerry Seinfeld made (hilarious) headlines for rejecting a hug attempt by Kesha.
On the red carpet of an event in New York City, the comedian was approached by the enthusiastic singer, who wanted nothing more than to embrace one of her favorite celebrities.
But Seinfeld wasn't having it.
He was polite. He wasn't mean to the artist or anything.
But he said "no thanks" three times in response to three separate requests for a quick embrace.
In case you somehow missed it, fear not! You can check out the viral footage below.
It's pretty terrific:
After being told just how many people watched his dissing of Kesha, Seinfeld told a reporter that he meant no harm.
He really had no clue who she was and he doesn't like to hug total strangers.
“I'm sure I would've liked her. But I need to know who [you are]," Seinfeld said to Extra, being sure to clarify that he meant no offense to Kesha by his gesture.
This is all a long preamble to say that Seinfeld did, indeed, mean A LOT of offense to Kim Kardashain and her family members in an interview with Mr. Porter.
Asked by the magazine about his parenting style, Seinfeld said he never loses his temper around his kids.
As you might imagine, he's a pretty even-keeled father.
“The one time I really, really got upset was when my daughter was watching the Kardashians on her phone in her bed and I could not take that scene.”
For what reason?
As someone who created what some believe is the best show in TV history, and as someone who had to work extremely hard to have that opportunity, Seinfeld just can't handle how little the Kardashians have done to earn their fame and fortune.
He explained his view as follows:
“For someone who for their whole life, television was the Olympics of being a comedian. It was only for the very best. You had to have everything.
"You had to go through all the different hierarchies of your career to get to television.”
This is why Seinfeld is “offended by reality television on many levels” and why he believes Keeping Up with the Kardashians “is the premiere example of reality television.”
Concluded the long-time star:
“These people are not doing anything interesting."
Yes, this is ironic coming from a guy who proudly produced a show "about nothing," as Seinfeld often described his beloved sitcom.
But it's pretty easy to see what he means.
Stand-up comedians really do toil away in front of crowds of 25... and then maybe 50... and then maybe they cross the 100-person barrier.
But they travel across the country and earn very little and stay at crappy hotels as they build any semblance of a career.
The lucky and talented ones can eventually earn enough to make a living in this industry; the VERY lucky and talented ones star in their own show that lasts for many seasons and go down in history as a true legend.
As for Kim Kardashian?
She got plowed hard by Ray J on video and took off her clothes a bunch of times on Instagram.
Not exactly the same path to stardom.
As you can see above, Seinfeld isn't the first celebrity to come out and say negative things about the Kardashians.
Although his take on them was more reasoned and measured than many before them.
Click around above to see what we mean.
Kim Kardashian really is a changed woman.
And this is very bad news for horny young men around the globe.
Just over two years ago, Kardashian crossed the 27 million follower mark on Instagram and celebrated with a seductive photograph of herself in bed.
“27 mil!!!!! Thank you so much!!!! I love you all!!!!!” Kim captioned the very sexy snapshot in February of 2015.
When her follower count subsequently climbed to 42 million, Kardashian dropped a MASSIVE cleavage selfie on fans in recognization of the achievement.
When she hit 45 million not long afterward?
You guessed it: more cleavage!
But that was before Kim was a mother of two.
It was before she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris this past October and forced to truly re-evaluate nearly every aspect of her life.
Kardashian has understandably become far more guarded since this incident and, by extension, far more clothed.
Earlier this week, she accomplished a true Instagram feat, becoming just the sixth person to reach 100 million followers.
However, she didn't strip down in celebration. She didn't show off her boobs. She chose to show off her family instead.
"I CAN'T BELIEVE I'VE REACHED 100 MILLION FOLLOWERS ON INSTAGRAM, THANKS TO YOU GUYS!!!" she wrote as a caption to the above family portrait on her official website.
"TO CELEBRATE, I WANTED TO TAKE A LOOK BACK AT MY MOST-LIKED POSTS. I APPRECIATE YOU GUYS SO MUCH, MORE THAN YOU KNOW," Kim added.
On Instagram itself, meanwhile, Kardashian not only didn't reward followers with a new naked selfie.
She didn't even feature a new picture of herself!
She went with the following image of daughter North West and wrote as another caption:
"She has no clue what 100 million followers means but she's excited cause i'm excited lol thanks for the follows and the love."
This brand new Kim Kardashian is probably good for the reality star's mental health.
But is it good for her future as an actual reality star? Can a buttoned-up, responsible, conservative, more private Kim Kardashian remain a legitimate A-Lister?
No. Not if the failing ratings for Keeping Up with the Kardashians are any indication.
After the aforementioned robbery in Paris, Kim stepped fully away from the spotlight.
She didn't share anything at all on social media and she didn't go out in public.
Following several weeks of being on a self-imposed lockdown, however, Kim re-emerged little by little, posting various pictures of her husband and children at home.
"It was time for Kim to get back on social media and back to work," an insider told Entertainment Weekly in January, explaining:
"That is a huge part of her career. She has obligations to support her family and has an entire team working for her. It was time to get back to normal."
Well, not normal.
Normal would have previously meant a Kim Kardashian nude spread in honor of this social media milestone.
The new Kim Kardashian normal is a portrait of her loved ones.
We're sorry, fellas. But you had to know this day was coming sooner or later, robbery or no robbery.
As for where Kardashian stands in the grand scheme of Instagram, she still has a ways to go before she can threaten Selena Gomez as the most popular user.
That singer is the most followed person on the platform by far, with approximately 120 million fans.
She is followed by: Ariana Grande at 105 million; Taylor Swift at 102 million; Beyonce and Cristiano Ronaldo, both at 101 million; and then Kim.
Kardashian is a solid 20 million followers ahead of the next person in her family, however, although we could actually see Kylie Jenner catching up someday.
She has her own reality show coming out and she remains very open to taking nearly everything off on a weekly basis.
That's a tough combination. It's one Kim can't really compete with these days.
We'll be keeping a close eye on both Instagram accounts to see if Kylie can someday usurp her sibling. Stay tuned!
When it debuted in 2007, Keeping Up With the Kardashians quickly became something of a surprise sensation.
What was supposed to be low-budget throw-away reality series about a sex tape star and her family of aspiring D-listers soon turned the Kard clan into one of the most famous families on the planet.
A decade later, however, Kardashian fatigue appears to have set in in a major way.
Rumors about KUWTK getting canceled after been circulating pretty much since the show's inception.
But for the most part, it's been a lot of wishful thinking from those who are tired of audiences and TV execs validating Kim and company's raging narcissism.
These days, however, the numbers support the theory, and the possibility of KUWTK getting canned is now very real.
The Kardashians' ratings have been on the decline since 2014, and this season has marked their show's most precipitous drop to date.
Ironically, this was supposed to be rebuilding year for the long-running series, as the Kardashians' real-life drama made tabloid headlines in the weeks before the season premiere.
Whether it was Kim being robbed at gunpoint, or Kanye West checking into a mental hospital for a weeks-long psychiatric evaluation, a steady stream of personal crises sparked a new wave of interest in the Kardashians around the start of this year.
And that may be the problem.
In addition to the fact that all of these stories have been extensively documented by the tabloid media before they're ever portrayed on Keeping Up, as the family becomes more famous, they seem less likely to give fans an honest glimpse into their lives.
In the early days of the show, the sisters didn't have much going on in the way of real drama, so they made mountains out of molehills, portraying petty squabbles as potentially relationship-ending feuds.
Now that they're actual celebrities, the Kardashians want the one thing that effective reality stars can never have: their privacy.
Major events are downplayed, so as to allow the family to maintain strict control of their reputations.
It's one of the many problems that arises when a reality show's stars are also its executive producers.
On top of that, the Kards just assume you've been following them on social media and keeping up with their social media exploits.
There's no room for the casual viewer anymore, as plot points like Khloe's relationship with Tristan Thompson spring up out of nowhere with zero explanation.
At this point, the family certainly doesn't need the income from KUWTK any longer, but getting canceled would create a major dent in their brand.
Sources say Kris would consider cancelation to be a colossal embarrassment, and the momager reportedly feels the timing couldn't be worse, as we're just weeks away from Kylie Jenner's spinoff, Life of Kylie.
Perhaps the younger generation will still be able to capture an audience the way Kim and company used to.
Or perhaps after years of alienating the masses, the Kardashians are actually on their way out.
Watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians online to get caught up for what may be the show's final season.
We're just gonna come right out and tell you:
Kourtney Kardashian will NOT be naked on this Sunday's brand new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Sadly, this will be a departure from an earlier installment of the occasionally beloved series, during which Kardashian took all her clothes off.
But just because no birthday suits will be shown, this doesn't mean no road trips will be taken.
Titled "Classic Cars and Vintage Eggs," the episode will find Kim and Kourtney forcing Khloe to take a sentimental sibling trip to Palm Springs in order to relive some of their fondest childhood memories.
And it will be a blast, right?
Nothing of interest will come of it, right?
As the following trailer depicts, the sisters will run into a bit of car trouble while out and about on their vacation, perhaps growing to regret the classic car they brought along for the trip.
Elsewhere on this episode, Rob Kardashian will actually meet with a life coach to try and save his relationship with Blac Chyna... while Kris will receive an outrageous proposition from a royal family.
Wait, what?!? Huh?!? That sure sounds intriguing.
Check out the following teaser now for a look at what's on tap.
Being in the spotlight might seem fabulous sometimes, but it also means more criticism.
From fans on social media to other celebrities who think they have a right to comment, there are way too many people who think it's okay to criticize celebrities for their appearances.
These 29 stars have dealt with such body-shaming, but their responses?
They totally shamed their body-shamers!
And we LOVE them for it.
1. Selena Gomez
2. Ariel Winter
3. Tyra Banks
4. Demi Lovato
5. Kim Kardashian
6. Khloe Kardashian
Remember a few months back, after Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint and Kanye West had his mental breakdown and there were a whole bunch of rumors about how they were getting divorced?
Yeah, it was a tough time in the world of Kimye.
But lately, Kim seems to be doing considerably better after her trauma, and Kanye is still taking plenty of time to himself.
So you'd think that things were good between them now, right? No divorce rumors, no rumors at all, really, so surely they're fine.
According to a new report from People, that may not be the case. Not entirely, anyway.
A source close to Kanye claimed that "Kim and Kanye are in a great place" right now, and "They are just so happy. He's doing really great."
"They went through a really tough time there for awhile. It was really touch and go."
"She was dealing with the robbery and all that came after," the source explained, "and she felt like he wasn't there for her. He was going through his issues around the holidays, and he felt like she wasn't prioritizing him."
And so "Things were just awful between the two of them, but also with both of them separately."
"It was like for the first time, they just weren't happy. I don't think they were happy separately, and I know they weren't happy together."
It sounds like a tough time, but the source said that Kim kept telling Kanye that "if we can get through this, we'll be stronger than ever."
"They never fell out of love with each other, but it was just one of those times where marriage is hard work, and you have to push through the pain."
Apparently they both went through moments when they wondered if it was worth it to keep struggling, "But the answer was always 'Yes, this is worth it.' So they both chose to fight."
The source, who seemed to be extremely chatty, theorized that it was like Kim and Kanye "were dangling on a rope off a cliff, and they used every single thing they had to find solid ground."
"They clawed their way back to somewhere a lot more healthy, and they're still clawing their way back. There are good days and there are bad days."
So while they obviously love each other and are fighting for their relationship, "If they called and said it was over, it wouldn't come out of the blue."
"But on the other hand, it wouldn't shock me if the two of them are still married in 20 years. Their chances are way better now than they used to be."
Meanwhile, a source close to Kim explained that "She's really focused on what's ahead, in her work and in her marriage."
"She and Kanye have been able to process things and move past them and are very ready for what's next and not be so focused on the mess that was last year."
So from both sides of the fence, it seems like things are looking good for them, but they're not out of the divorce woods yet.
Here's hoping they're able to continue working on their marriage, because ... come on, do you really want to live in a world with either of these people single again?
The first Monday in May was a roaring success!

Scott Disick takes a lot of flak for being unreliable, but we take umbrage with that notion.
Let's give Scott a little credit where it's due, shall we?
After all, you can always rely on the Lord to be unreliable, and that's gotta count for something, right?
If you watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians online, you know that there's usually a lag time of several months between when the events of the family members' lives make tabloid headlines and when those same events are finally depicted on the show.
This might be one of the reasons that the Kardashians are struggling in terms of ratings, but that's a conversation for another time.
Anyway, it takes a while to transform raw footage into watchable television, which is why we're just now getting the KUWTK version of Scott Disick and Kim Kardashian's disastrous trip to Dubai.
Scott was supposed to be on hand to provide Kim with a greater sense of security, as the trip marked the first time she'd traveled internationally since being robbed at gunpoint in Paris.
It's a mystery why anyone thought Scott was the right man for this job, but not surprisingly Disick went on a bender and disappeared.
Now the incident is finally being featured on the family's reality show, and it seems like Scott's behavior was even worse than what was described in the tabloids.
Not only was he hammered, he was busted partying with what Kim describes as a "tramp."
Check out that awkward moment in the preview clip below:
Kim Kardashian is both under the weather and under fire at the moment.
The reality star apparently has a case of the flu, but instead of garnering sympathy from her legion of social media followers, Kardashian has garnered a solid dose of outrage.
All due to a single Tweet.
“The flu can be an amazing diet. So happy it came in time for the Met,” Kardashian wrote of her unexpected, illness-based slimdown, just weeks prior to the 2017 Met Gala in New York City on Monday, May 1.
She then added: “lol #6lbsdown.”
Many followers were not laughing out loud, however.
They were aghast that Kim would joke about something as potentially dangerous as the influenza virus.
“Now imagine saying that to your daughter after she gets sick...” one peeved user wrote, while another fumed:
"It sends dangerous messages & supports not being healthy as a valid weight loss technique. But I wonder why eating disorders are so common..."
Kardashian has since deleted the Tweet, but not before it was widely viewed by critics on the Web.
Other harsh responses to the mesage have included:
- People also die from the flu…but glad you feeling better.
- You’re aware of the amount of people that follow you/are inspired by you, right? lots of them being impressionable young people?
- You’re promoting weight loss in spite of health to thousands of impressionable people who take you very seriously.
- yes those people who died of flu just looked fab in their coffins! #onpoint.
- maybe don’t glamorize sickness for weight loss.
Look: Do people die from the flu? Yes.
Do most people die from the flu? No.
Does Kim Kardashian often say and do dumb stuff that make us question whether she realizes the impact she has on young girls? Absolutely.
But where's the outage when Kim and her sisters waist train? There's an example of something Kim is directly, specifically promoting to her fans... and something that is wholly unhealthy and ridiculous.
As much we typically love to pile on the anti-Kim Kardashian train, we just can't muster up any real anger over what Kim clearly meant to be a joke.
At least she's trying, right?
The quips and zingers typically fall to Khloe Kardashian, the one sister with an actual personality and sense of humor.
We're just glad to see Kim attempting to act in any way that isn't over-rehearsed, scripted and wooden. And we don't appear to be alone.
“I’m in love with the fact that people don’t understand your humor. It’s shallow humor, but still… this is a joke people.” wrote one fan, while another also showed her support as follows:
"For God sakes people relax, it was a joke, Kim, hope you feel better soon, sending you love and well wishes from Canada.”
Kardashian, of course, has obsessed over her weight ever since she became famous.
Lasrt July, seven months after giving birth, she gushed over her figure to E! News.
"I'm definitely to my goal weight. I'm down more than I expected," the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star said at the time, giving credit to a certain strategy and company by adding:
"The Atkins diet was so easy for me because there's so many sweets and treats that keep you satisfied along the way. I think with the help of all of that it's been super easy."
What do YOU think of Kim's Tweet?
Did it deserve these kind of replies?
