Kim Kardashian Makes Pitiful Excuses for Kanye West’s Shitty Slavery is a Choice Comments

Seriously, what is it with the Kardashian women and their affinity for choosing jackasses as partners?

A few months ago, when Kanye West was having his usual outburst of verbal diarrhea, he made this statement on the subject of slavery:

“When you hear about slavery for 400 years — for 400 years?! That sounds like a choice. Like you was there for 400 years, and it’s all of y’all? It’s like, we’re mentally imprisoned.”

This statement caused significant outrage and there was quite the kerfuffle throughout the Internet. I think it’s safe to assume that Kanye is not the thinking before speaking type. There doesn’t seem to be any funnel between his brain and his mouth (yes, I know the man has an actual mental illness, but if he is still willfully not doing anything about it, he’s still a dickhead).

However, Kim Kardashian now insists that her husband didn’t really say that, or he may have said something, but that wasn’t what he meant. She had this to say in an interview with  TMZ Live.

“Kanye’s slavery comment, he never said that. That was just the headline. If you listen to what he said, he said ‘slavery was 400 years. If it’s going to be another 400 years, that sounds like a choice to me.’ He didn’t say ‘slavery is a choice.’ He was saying if you’re going to still be enslaved for another 400 years, then that’s some bullshit.”

That…that makes no sense whatsoever. Kim, I know you’re trying to stand by your man, but the only bullshit I’m smelling right now is your piss-poor excuse for your husband’s idiotic comments.

Kim continued to try and feebly explain Kanye’s dumbass behavior:

“When he gets ramped up, he can’t control what he says, he can’t let it go. He loves being ramped up. He’s like ‘I feel powerful when I’m ramped up. I don’t want to be so suppressed. Yeah, I say crazy shit but I’ve always said crazy shit. That’s why I’m Kanye.’”

Kim, you just described the average two-year-old child. “He can’t control what he says.” “He loves being ramped up.” “He doesn’t want to be suppressed.” Yeah, this is how toddlers act when they’re still learning how to be human beings. This is not the behavior you should find acceptable in a 41-year-old man. And you should recognize this behavior because you have three small children at home! Well, actually, scratch that. As long as Kanye is off his meds, you will have four small children.

Kanye West is Furious Over the Kim Kardashian-Ray J Tape (No, Not THAT One)

Kanye West knew what he was getting into when he married Kim Kardashian.

Or so he thought, at least.

ray and kimye

The rapper knew that his wife had become famous for her plowing of Ray J on camera, as the former couple had collaborated on a sex tape titled Kim Kardashian Superstar that banked them both millions.

Indeed, Kanye was familiar with this tape.

So was most of the American public.

But a new Kim Kardashian-Ray J video emerged this week -- and multiple insiders have confirmed that it's thrown West for quite a loop.

The dude is really pissed off.

Kim Kardashian Gives a Stare

You've likely heard about it at this point, right?

Radar Online obtained footage filmed at some point during Ray J and Kim's courtship, which lasted from approximately 2003 through 2006.

The raunchy tape features Kim sucking on a penis-shaped bong that is placed between Ray's legs, while also taking a hit of marijuana straight from her then-lover's mouth.

You can click HERE to read more about it and to find a link to the video.

It's from well over a decade ago, but Kanye was apparently unaware it existed; and no one wants to be reminded that his or her spouse had wild and fun times with someone else, you know?

Very Serious Kimye

“Kanye is not happy about the latest Kim and Ray J tape," a source tells Hollyoow Life, adding:

"Kanye is furious, has a bunch questions about the penis pipe tape and feels pretty sure Ray J is behind the latest leak."

Wow. That has to be the case, doesn't it?

Ray J was pissed a few days ago that Kim said during an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians that she was high on ecstasy when she f-cked him on video.

So releasing this new video would be the perfect revenge.

Ray J Selfie Alert

In case you have not yet heard, Ray J hit it first when it comes to Kim and Kanye.

Adds Hollywood Life:

"Kanye is demanding some answers, he wants to know why Ray J would leak this tape, and if Ray didn’t leak, then who did?

"While Kim is embarrassed over the whole situation, Kanye is upset and feels disrespected."

Meanwhile, a second insider alleges that Kanye hates to be reminded of his wife's past.

Particularly the part of her past when she films herself taking it from another guy.

"At one point Kanye was all about the sex tape with Kim and Ray J, but now that he is married and a father to Kim’s kids it burns him to see that the tape is still referenced and people still see it and that it is still a thing," this source said, concluding:

"He is upset that Ray J will always be remembered for the tape. But Kim is trying to reassure him that he should move on form it and focus his attention on more important things.

"She doesn’t want it to become a thing even though he is starting to make it a thing."

You know where this is all leading, don't you?

A Kim and Kanye sex tape that West directs in order to prove that he's the best at giving it to his better half.

You heard it here first.

Kim Kardashian Returns to Scene of That Awful Crime

We make fun of Kim Kardashian a lot here at The Hollywood Gossip.

Mostly for good reason, though, considering she's very spoiled and out of touch and obsessed with fame and money and even flies on a 747 when it's totally unnecessary.

But there's one topic about which we've never mocked the reality star -- and that's the infamous robbery in Paris.

You remember the incident, right?

Back in October of 2016, Kim was awoken by armed intruders during her stay in France.

According to various reports, along with the celebrity herself, these men tied Kardashian up and actually held her at gunpoint while they ransacked the apartment in which she was staying.

Kardashian feared she would be raped and/or killed.

It sounded truly horrifying.

Several weeks after this robbery, Kim talked about it on camera and broke down into tears, as you can see here:

It took the fashion maven a very long time to summon up the courage to return to this city, but she eventually realized that she had to carry on with her life.

She could not remain a victim forever.

And it's this return that will be documented on Sunday's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

In the preview featured on this page, Kardashian talks candidly about going back to Paris since nearly losing her life there, saying that she's afraid because "anything" could happen.

You might say this is overdramatic...

... but we'd then say that no one who hasn't been at gunpoint can relate.

Few people out there (thankfully) can relate to what Kim went through during the robbery described above.

So instead of scoffing at Kim's excuse about being high on ecstasy when she filmed her sex tape years ago, we're gonna refrain from any Kardashian bashing in this post.

We'll simply ask readers to check out the teaser instead and send Kim our best wishes.

Kim kardashian returns to scene of that awful crime

Ray J: Kim Kardashian Wasn’t High When I Boned Her on Camera!!

This Sunday, the world was stunned to learn that Kim Kardashian was high when she and Ray J made their sex tape.

This isn't an unconfirmed report — Kim herself announced it on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

But there's a twist: Ray J is saying that it isn't true.

Kim kardashian rocks a tank top

In case you missed it, Kim Kardashian was chatting with Scott Disick and Kendall Jenner.

Scott has done everything wrong ever and Kendall is pretty chill, so it's a rare judgment-free zone for Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

"I got married on ecstasy," Kim revealed.

"I did ecstasy once and I got married," she said, referring to her first marriage in 2000.

"I did it again and I made a sex tape," Kim said of the sex tape that helped make her entire family famous.

As Kim characterizes it: "Like everything bad would happen."

Ray j selfie alert

Well, TMZ reports that sources close to Ray J insist that it's just not true.

Specifically, these insiders claim that Kim took no (hard) drugs and also did not consume any alcohol during the filming of the sex tape.

They do acknowledge that Kim smoked some pot around that time.

People knew that already, since the world saw that dong-shaped-bong.

You see something like that and it's hard to forget.

Kim kardashian new sex tape clip

As you may recall, Kim cited as evidence that her jaw was moving and grinding throughout the sex tape.

(MDMA is notorious for causing people to grind their teeth, which is why pacifier necklaces are a common accessory for raves)

However, the sources close to Ray J offer a different explanation.

Ray J's insiders claim that "her lip was quivering because she was getting f–ked."

Well, that's certainly another explanation.

And it technically conforms to occam's razor, though the same logical shortcut tells us that Kim is likely telling the truth.

Kim kardashian gives a stare

As TMZ correctly points out, there is clearly no possible reason for Kim to be fabricating this.

Kim isn't going to get any more cool points for having done molly a couple of times.

Especially since her experience amounts to almost an anti-drug PSA.

At the same time, however, what does Ray J have to gain by denying it, even indirectly?

What purpose does it serve for him to grumble to his entourage (and have them leak it to TMZ) that he doesn't think that Kim was on X?

Kim kardashian in a panic

We think, however, that we've figured out why Ray J doesn't like this announcement.

TMZ's sources say that he's offended by the suggestion.

Some might hear that Kim was rolling molly at the time and wonder if she was fully capable of consent.

Kim did seem to joke that neither her marriage nor the sex tape would have occurred had she been 100% sober at those times.

It seems more likely that Kim took ecstacy in anticipation of the planned activities, from banging Ray J to her ill-fated first marriage.

No one is accusing Ray J of anything here, folks.

And we think that Kim's recent history has shown that she clearly doesn't need to be under the influence to make a mistake.

Ray J Denies Saying All That Sex Stuff About Kim Kardashian

Ray J may have hit it first.

But the hip hop artist now insists:

He is not trying to have the last laugh.

ray and kim

Earlier this week, Ray J found himself back in the news after The Sun alleged that he got very drunk in a London club and blurted out some fascinating stuff about Kim Kardashian.

Specifically, some fascinating stuff about Kim Kardashian in bed.

According to this awesome report, Kim sometimes adjusts her makeup DURING SEX.

She also sometimes took phone calls from her mom DURING SEX.

Oh, and Kim had a check of lingerie and sex toys worth about $100,000 during her time as Ray J's girlfriend, which lasted from about 2005 through 2007.

The ex-couple, of course, continues to be well-known for their relationship because it culminated in the world famous Kim Kardashian sex tape, Kim Kardashian Superstar.

Kim Kardashian and Ray J Picture

The above claims by Ray J received so much attention that the story actually reached Kim herself.

She wrote on Twitter that her former flame was a "pathological liar."

Now, however, Ray J is here to defend himself, alleging that he never did utter a word about what Kim was like in the sack and that he never would do such a thing.

"Yo! This is Ray J checking in. I felt like I needed to come online to shut down all of these false rumors that's going around about me and what I said about somebody I've been with in the past," the occasional singer said in an Instagram video yesterday.

He continued as follows:

"Let me make this one thing clear: I'm in a great place in my life. I'm happy. I love my wife. I got a beautiful new baby girl -- her name is Melody Love Norwood -- and I've been trying to be the best parent I can be.

"I would never say these things after watching my wife go through labor for 28 hours. OK?"

Ray J Selfie Alert

Ray J is saying he has a newfound respect for women after witnessing such a miraculous event.

Which is actually sort of cool if he means it.

This is the same person, remember, who told folks to pleasure themselves to his sex tape because he still (yes, he STILL) makes money off every purchase.

Referring to the allegations that he spilled on sex with Kim as "disgusting," Ray J went on to say that "the person I am now is not who I was in the past, and I need y'all to give me a chance to grow, and to love and to respect the people I'm with without trying to slander my name, please."

As for The Man Upstairs?

Kim Kardashian: A Good Photo

"God is working, and obviously the devil is trying to work, too, but it will not happen," Ray J continued.

"I will not let that happen, y’all. I love my wife and I have nothing but respect for everybody out there, past and present. False rumors."

The Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood went on and on with his denial, seriously adament that he had moved far on from Kim:

“I’ve done at least 10 interviews in the past 2weeks in #London and I’ve been respectful to everyone!

"These rumors are false and uncalled for! My family is all that matters and that’s all I live for. The old ray J is dead. Let him RIP. I’m a new man with new responsibilities and moral values.

"Don’t believe everything you read. Much love and respect!"

Same to you, man.

You've made quite a life for yourself off giving it to Kim that one time in front of a camera.

And you have a lovely wife and beautiful baby at home now.

You're clearly a changed and respectful person and we wish you the best.

But come on. You can tell us quietly: What was Kim's favorite position?!?

Kim Kardashian Calls Ray J a ‘Pathological Liar’ After Report About Their Sexual Experiences

Kim Kardashian West is speaking out.

Hours after British outlet The Sun reported that her ex-boyfriend Ray J allegedly made bold claims about their sexual history during a night out in London earlier this week, the reality star hopped online to weigh in on the situation.

In response to a fan who wrote that the singer’s admissions seemingly proved “he is suffering from low self-esteem,” Kardashian wrote that she thought it was a sign of something else entirely.

“Or shows he’s a pathological liar,” she wrote of her ex, with whom she was in a 2003 sex tape, adding three crying with laughter emojis.

Proving that she wasn’t bothered by the report, she wrote: “You actually believe this story? It’s too funny to me!”

During the night out, Ray J claimed Kardashian West was picky when it came to being intimate, The Sun reported.

“Kim and I had fun times — marathon sessions. But she didn’t like getting sweaty and would stop to do her make-up if she did,” he remarked, according to the outlet. “She liked to look dope during sex, the right lighting, setting the mood. She was wild — there was a red Louis Vuitton trunk of sex toys.”

A rep for Ray J did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

During a recent interview, Kardashian West revealed that her husband Kanye West had actually been warned not to date her because of the sex tape.

“We’ve been through a lot together. You know, I’ve known him for 15 years now. Became friends with him maybe in like 2006, 2007. Met him in like . I’ve known him forever. He’s put himself up against the world for me when everyone told him, ‘You cannot date a girl with a sex tape. You cannot date a reality show girl. This is going to ruin your career.’ Everyone told him that,” she told Van Jones during an interview on Be Woke Vote.

Luckily, the rapper didn’t listen.

“To me, he was like, ‘Oh, you’re not going to tell me what to do. I’ll let you know that it’s going to be okay.’ And he always was that strength for me. So I’ll always love and appreciate him for always standing up for me,” the 38-year-old mother of three added.

Bethenny Frankel Slams Trolls Who Criticized Her & the Kardashians for Dressing as Victoria’s Secret Angels

Bethenny Frankel and the KarJenner sisters coincidentally wore the same themed outfit for Halloween this year.

After showing off her Victoria’s Secret Angel ensemble  on Instagram, the Real Housewives of New York City star, 47, clapped back at critics on social media who called their outfits “trashy” and not “age appropriate.”

“Little old for trashy costumes,” one fan wrote.

“You have a great figure but maybe something a bit more age appropriate?” another fan wrote in the comments section of one of Frankel’s Halloween photos.

One follower even brought up Frankel’s late boyfriend Dennis Shields, who was found dead in August at the age of 51 following a suspected overdose. “Considering your recent loss I am questioning why you would think this costume is in good taste?” the fan wrote.

The SkinnyGirl mogul quickly shut down the online trolls with a comment of her own — and defended the KarJenner siblings at the same time as Kourtney, Kim and Khloé Kardashian, as well as Kendall and Kylie Jenner, also dressed as Angels.

“For those haters, I suppose that monetizing reality tv is not the only good idea that the Kardashians and I have shared simultaneously. For those who bash theirs or my body, go hate somewhere else. We are mothers and daughters and I chose those very polarizing ruffle boy shorts thus opting to not show my vagina this Halloween,” Frankel wrote.

The mother of one added, “I’m in my late 40s. That is my God given body with no receipts attached (a breast lift 12 years ago notwithstanding) to it. Perhaps next year I will go pantyless & await more constructive comments. To the rest of you, I had my best Halloween ever, trick or treating with my peanut then dancing my ladies.”

For the holiday, Frankel attended her RHONY costars Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan’s Halloween party, along with costars Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer.

Frankel may have been inspired by the lingerie brand’s annual fashion show, but the Kardashian-Jenner family took it one step further by wearing actual pieces on previous VS runways.

As seen in videos shared on Instagram, Kourtney, 39, Khloé, 34, Kendall, 22, and Kylie, 21, walked up and down a faux-catwalk wearing their Victoria’s Secret lingerie and white angel wings straight from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show archives.

“We called Victoria’s Secret, and those are the original wings and outfits of the girls on the runway from the previous year. They have been so great to us and sent us the real runway looks,” Kim told Refinery29. “It was such a special night, and it was so fun to do it all together.”

In addition, new mom Khloé tweeted: “Kimberly thank you so much for thinking of the VS angels costume and for getting @VictoriasSecret to loan us everything! I was uncomfortable thinking of doing this bc I just had a baby but thank you to ALL of my sisters for being the best support & now we have the best memories!”

I Love It! Saint and North West Hilariously Dress Up as Dad Kanye and Lil Pump for Halloween

Halloween is a family affair!

For the holiday, Saint and North West didn’t have to look far from home for costume inspiration as the siblings’ Halloween looks were both inspired by dad Kanye West.

On Wednesday night, little Saint morphed into his father while his cousin Reign Disick dressed up as Lil Pump from the rappers’ music video “I Love It.”

Kim Kardashian shared a series of photos of the epic costumes on Instagram simply captioning it “I love it.”

In the first shot, Saint, 2, can be seen smiling widely dressed in Kanye’s massive box costume with the “Donda” chain and oversized slides. Meanwhile, Reign, 3, a.k.a. Lil Pump, 18, wore the rapper’s exact silver chain with white Yeezys.

In the second shot, both boys were pictured smiling. The next post was a video of Kim begging Saint and Reign to keep a straight face by saying “no cheese,” before he and Reign tumbled over due to the weight of the costumes.

Kourtney Kardashian also shared the same photos with the same caption. Meanwhile, proud dad Kanye posted a photo of his son on Twitter, captioning it “Scoop.”

Of course, Reign and Saint weren’t the only ones to pay homage to the Chicago rapper.

North, and Kourtney and Scott Disick’s daughter Penelope also dressed up like Kanye and Lil Pump but took their inspiration from the duo’s Sept. 30 SNL performance outfits.

Penelope, 6, wore Kanye’s sparkling water ensemble as North, 5, rocked Lil Pump’s Fiji water bottle look.

Hours before sharing the “I Love It”-inspired costumes, Kim, Kourtney, Khloé Kardashian, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner shared photos of the family’s most epic sister Halloween costume to-date.

In photos shared by Kim, the sisters are seen channeling their inner Victoria’s Secret Angels wearing sexy white lingerie looks, massive angel wings (supplied by Victoria’s Secret themselves!) and crystal-encrusted high heels as they strutted in unison for the camera before heading to a Halloween party.

Kim tweeted a behind-the-scenes photo of her look writing, “Thank you @VictoriasSecret for sending us actual runway looks and real wings to borrow for the night!!! OMG a dream come true! Got to be a Victoria Secret Angel for the night! & Kendall got good practice lol.”

Kim Kardashian Says Kanye West Was Warned Not to Date Her Because of Her Sex Tape

Kim Kardashian West may not always agree with Kanye West, but she will never fail to support her husband.

“We’ve been through a lot together. You know, I’ve known him for 15 years now. Became friends with him maybe in like 2006, 2007. Met him in like . I’ve known him forever. He’s put himself up against the world for me when everyone told him, ‘You cannot date a girl with a sex tape. You cannot date a reality show girl. This is going to ruin your career.’ Everyone told him that,’ ” Kardashian West told Van Jones during a sitdown interview on Be Woke Vote.

Luckily, the rapper didn’t listen.

“To me, he was like, ‘Oh, you’re not going to tell me what to do. I’ll let you know that it’s going to be okay.’ And he always was that strength for me. So I’ll always love and appreciate him for always standing up for me,” said Kardashian West, 38.

“Even in like fashion. ‘You’ll never be on the cover of a magazine.’ And you know, amazing things have happened in that world or anyone that’s ever doubted us or me, he’s always been there to hold my hand and lift me up higher and give me the confidence. And so I’ll always do the same for him,”  the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star continued.

Although the couple has been married for four years and shares three children together — daughters North, 5, and Chicago, 9 months, and son Saint, 2 — they don’t see eye-to-eye on politics. While Kardashian West voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, West, 41, has been an avid supporter of President Donald Trump, frequently wearing a Make America Great Again hat.

When Jones pressed Kardashian West on West’s comments about abolishing the 13th amendment, the mother of three clarified that her husband isn’t always the best communicator.

“It takes him about four years to write a song to explain — to communicate what he wants to say. So when he tweets something in two seconds, what’s going on in his mind and what he thinks and what he’s trying to say, he might not be the best communicator, but he has the best heart and I know what he means. I believe in him and I believe that his message of what the hat represent to him is maybe different than what it represents to other people,” Kardashian West explained. “He’s very mindful about that. He doesn’t maybe express that. But what it mans to him is something totally different and I trust in him that he will explain that in his own way.”

Still, Kardashian West voices her opinions and suggestions to her husband in private.

“Afterwards, I might let him know that I can help him communicate that a little bit better and you know, we should work on that. He’s always like, ‘Yeah, but I already tweeted it.’ I’m like, ‘Well, what you tweeted isn’t what you just said to me over the phone.’ But sometimes people don’t have the long time to really hear him out and see what he has to say and the snippets,” she said.

While West’s political opinions may be controversial to some, Kardashian West commended her husband for defending his beliefs.

“You know, the good thing is, he’s so strong that he knows what he means,” she said. “The people around him knows what he means and the people around him let him know that what he said might not be what he means and tries to help him work on it. But I know his heart, so we’re working on expressing that.”

She added that West “will always do what he believes, whether it’s the popular thing or not. And he has said so many times, even on SNL, but I don’t know if it was on because it was at the end, ‘I do not agree with all of the policies. I don’t even know all the policies, I’m not political. I’m just saying this is what this represents to me and I will wear it because that’s what I feel.’ ”

“He wants to fight for free thought,” she said.

Kim Kardashian Says Kanye West Is ‘Harassing’ Her to Have More Kids: ‘He Wants Like 7’

Kanye West had babies on the brain on Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

While touring her new condo-turned-office with pal Larsa Pippen, Kim Kardashian admits that her rapper husband wants to keep expanding their family.

“How did you get so lucky with all your kids?” asks Pippen, 44. “They’re all so good.”

“Kanye wants to have more, though. He’s been harassing me,” says Kardashian, 38. “He wants like seven. He’s like stuck on seven.”

She and West, 41, share daughters Chicago, 8 months, and North, 5, and son Saint, 2.

RELATED: Kim Kardashian Shares Adorable Moment Between Cousins Chicago and True: ‘Besties in Bali’

“Okay, he needs to name his next album Seven and like lighten up on the kids situation,” Pippen cracks. “Seven kids is crazy!”

“That’s crazy. I could never, especially in like the world we live in,” says Kardashian, admitting that the onslaught of recent school shootings made her wary of bringing more lives into the world.

The slayings of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in February 2018 stuck a particular chord with the mother of three.

“I’ve been kind of hesitant about having more kids just because it literally keeps me up at night, thinking about how my kids will survive in a crazy world like this,” she says.

“I hear you. And people have been trying to kidnap, rob, take you, so that plays into all that,” Pippen says, referencing her friend’s harrowing experience being robbed at gunpoint in Paris in October 2016.

Later in the episode, Kardashian and West take North to the March to Save Lives in Washington, D.C., where the reality star feels inspired by the young activists who tell her the only way to really change America is to vote for politicians who support gun violence prevention in the midterm elections.

“I one billion percent believe that we need stricter gun laws,” Kardashian says. “We need background checks, you shouldn’t be able to walk into a store and buy a gun. And to hear that the kids have met with people numerous times and nothing’s been done is just so sad.”

Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on E!

Is Kim Kardashian Trying to Make Her Ass Look Smaller?

Kim Kardashian is famous for one thing, and that thing is having a big ass. But in her latest Instagram photo shoot to promote her make-up line, Kim’s ass looks… smaller. Kind of regular sized, even. The ass of a peasant, not of someone who made a fortune showing off her ass and doing water sports with rappers.

I mean, I dunno, it’s fine, I guess, it just seems different. It’s like the Dick Sargent of asses. Instagram commenters were quick to comment on the look, and I’ve got some of the comments people left below.

Millions spent in plastic surgery to photoshop your butt to look like pre-surgery? Could have saved a small fortune but I guess when ur bipolar hubby is running for office, it’s icing on the cake lol

#Photoshopfail of 2018.. who said Kim wasn’t talented still? Lol

what if they didn’t photoshop her butt but she actually took out all the implants and that’s her REAL butt? Anyone think of that? No one has really seen her real butt before so maybe she removed all the fake ish! I’m just saying🤷🏽‍♀️

Uh photoshop much?

This whole picture is photoshopped and off for all kinds of reason.

You pay all that $$$ to have a fake body.. but yet you take this picture and all of a sudden your butt is normal??? Come in Kim make up your mind already… you keep changing every week. Just be you hunny!

One thing no one considered is it’s probably just the angle she’s sitting at.

Her ass really doesn’t look any smaller in other pictures, so I’m guessing it wasn’t plastic surgery. Wait… asstic surgery. It could also be Photoshop, but that wouldn’t make a lot of sense, either. If anything, you’d think Kim would Photoshop her ass to look bigger. That’s why I’m going with the camera angle being the culprit.

Kim Kardashian: Slammed For Posing Nude With Daughter on Instagram

These days, tt's not exactly news when Kim Kardashian poses nude on social media.

Of course, that's got nothing to do with any sort of deterioration in Kim's appearance.

Kim Kardashian: A Good Photo

In fact, as far as we can tell, the 38-year-old mother of three is aging like Benjamin Button.

But Kim's been a household name for well over a decade now, and the internet has the attention span of a gnat who missed its morning Adderall dose.

So it should come as no surprise that Kim's curves don't possess as much clout as they used to.

Although as she proved today, Mrs. Kardashian-West can still break the internet and stir up some controversy when she wants to.

Kim and Chicago

That's a pic that appeared on Kim's Instagram page this afternoon.

"My heavenly baby! Showing off the new pink shadows in the Flashing Lights Collection wearing Flashy and High Key available at KKWbeauty.com," Kim captioned the photo.

Sadly, it wasn't long before the most insidious form of species of troll -- the North American mom-shamer -- descended on the pic's comments section.

"The baby's shoulder is touching Kim's breast!!" commented one follower, presumably while clutching her pearls.

Kim and Chi

"That's so creepy..she looks like a pedo," wrote another fan.

And since this is the internet in 2018, some folks were just flat-out cruel for no reason, with one follower writing, "ulgy [sic] baby like de father."

Stay classy, Instagram commenters.

Interestingly, Kim was mom-shamed for two different pics today.

She also posted this photo of 5-year-old North wearing eyeliner from her cosmetics line.

Predictably, some idiots trashed Kim for putting makeup on a first grader, others for "using" her daughter to sell makeup.

"So now babies are selling eyeshadow too, I don't know it's just a lil much for me," wrote one such dipsh-t.

"Not long before plastic surgery."

On Snapchat

Yes, because clearly, that child is miserable and over-worked.

You've flouted our nation's labor laws for long enough, Kardashians!

This has been your daily reminder that social media is a curse from the very darkest depths of hell.

Now, if you'll excuse us, we have tweeting to do.

How Marrying Kanye West Affected Kim Kardashian’s Independence: ‘You Have to Let It Go’

Kim Kardashian West thought of herself as a more independent woman before marrying Kanye West.

“I think being with a man like Kanye, you have to learn how to be a little bit not-so-independent,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star, 38, said during her appearance on the Alec Baldwin Show Sunday.

“I’ve always been so independent and working, and schedule, and when you get married and have a husband that has their career and then have kids, your independence … you have to let it go,” Kardashian West said, adding, “I had to learn that being with a man like Kanye.”

The couple, who married in May 2014, shares three children: daughters North, 5, and Chicago, 8 months, as well as son Saint, who turns 3 on Dec. 5.

“I let be who he wants to be. I let him have his own views and opinions, even if they’re different than mine,” Kardashian West told host Alec Baldwin.

As of late, the rapper, 41, has been outspoken about his support for President Donald Trump, and has been candid about his political views.

“I think it’s just having an open mind. I love to let my husband be who he is,” the KKW Beauty mogul said. “We definitely have conversations if I don’t understand something in private and talk about that.”

Kardashian West also recalled her early childhood when she was raised by late father Rob Kardashian Sr. and mother Kris Jenner, who was married to Bruce Jenner at the time.

“I grew up in a household where Bruce, my stepdad, had one political view and maybe my real father had a different political view, or my mom,” she said. “We would just always talk about it and be really open about it. It was always okay to have different views.”

West has never been afraid to speak about his political stance, both on record and off, as evident by his lyrics. Though her husband has incorporated politics in his career, Kardashian West revealed that she is more cautious.

“As far as when it comes to my business, to me it’s all very separate,” she told Baldwin.

Numerous sources recently told PEOPLE that West’s behavior takes a toll on his wife. But the mother of three does not shy away from making her feelings known to her husband.

“She lets him take the lead, and she never disagrees with him publicly,” one insider said. “She has decided that’s the right move, but she isn’t scared to share her disagreements with him behind closed doors… Don’t think that she’s afraid of him, because she’s not. She’s just managing him the best she can.”

In recent weeks, West gave a pro-Trump rant after appearing as the Saturday Night Live musical guest and called first for abolishing and then for amending the 13th Amendment. In addition, he spoke about his mental health, his fondness for the Make America Great Again hatHillary Clinton and the Kardashians during his lengthy conversation with the president when he visited the White House.

“Kim finds Kanye brilliant, so it makes her upset when he goes on these public rants and come across as someone who isn’t well. It’s stressful for her,” a separate source said.

Kim Kardashian Shows Off Her Curves While Traveling with Husband Kanye West to Uganda

Kanye West has made good on a promise to take a trip to Africa — and he took his wife Kim Kardashian along with him.

The famous couple arrived at Uganda’s Entebbe International Airport on Friday and later checked into a local lodge with their daughter North.

In images published by TMZ and the Daily Mail, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 37, wears a monochromatic outfit featuring a grey shirt with a matching mini backpack and a pair of form-fitting bike shorts.

Adding a pop of color into his low-key ensemble, the rapper, 41, wore a blue sweatshirt with a purple cap.

Blending her parents’ style, North, 5, was seen in a pair of bright green pants with a matching top.

The couple plans to stay in Africa until Oct. 19, according to TMZ.

Earlier in October, West explained that he had pushed back the release of his album Yandhi in order to record in Africa.

“I didn’t finish it,” the rapper said during a TMZ Live interview, explaining that during a recent trip to Chicago he “felt this energy” and realized he needed “to go to what is known as Africa.”

He also remarked that he’d like to “have my kids in the studio and have my mic in the open so we can hear nature while we’re recording.”

Photos and videos shared on the popular Instagram account Team Kanye Daily indicate that the rapper has already set up a studio to finish recording the album, which is slated to be released on Nov. 23.

In the weeks leading up the famous family’s trip, West went on a number of public rants that have raised eyebrows and generated concern for his wellbeing.

Kim is very uncomfortable and unhappy with the whole situation,” a source previously told PEOPLE about the Kimoji creator, who shares daughters North and Chicago, 8 months, and son Saint, 2½, with West.

“She finds Kanye brilliant, so it makes her upset when he goes on these public rants and come across as someone who isn’t well,” added the source. “All she can do is hope that he calms down mentally soon.”

On Thursday afternoon, during a meeting with President Donald Trump in the Oval Office, West — who avidly supports and voted for the president in the 2016 election — claimed that he was “misdiagnosed” with bipolar disorder. (The rapper also recently revealed that he is “off medication” he had previously been taking to treat the disorder.)

Since West disclosed that he is no longer taking his medication, people in his inner circle have been “telling him that he needs to get back on his medication, that he’s not doing well, that he’s not making any sense,” an insider told PEOPLE earlier in October.

And while the Kardashians have been an unwavering support system to him, the source said that “the entire family is at the end of their ropes, and stuff like this won’t help.”

“They’re trying to help him get things where they should be, and it’s going to be that much harder now,” the source added. “It’s a sad day.”

Kim Kardashian: Ready to Leave Kanye Over MAGA Madness?

Perhaps you've spent the past 24 hours trapped under a rock in a remote forest with especially crappy wi-fi.

If so, we'd like to both congratulate you on your escape and warn you that your return to society is about to be made bittersweet, at best:

Mr. MAGA

Yes, Kanye West paid a visit to the White House yesterday, and the ensuing madness made almost everything else Yeezy has done over the course of his bonkers career look downright quaint by comparison.

(Notice we said "almost." Referring to slavery as "a choice" is still tough to top in terms of batsh-t insanity.) 

There are too many insane quotes to catalog here, but suffice it to say, Kanye said his MAGA hat makes him feel like Superman, which in turn makes him want to play catch with his 2-year-old son.

Kanye with Passion

He then referred to himself as a crazy motherf--ker and basically admitted that he didn't vote for Hillary because she's a woman.

He capped the whole thing off by coming around the president's desk and hugging him, while Trump did that crossed arms, half smile thing he does when he's experiencing an emotion other than anger at the poors or anger at "the elites." 

"I tell you what, that was pretty impressive. That was quite something," Trump said in response to Yeezus' sermon, proving that the whole thing was a bit much even for the most effective agent of chaos the nation has ever known.

Kanye in the White House

Of course, we all knew Trump would blow a bunch of smoke up his new buddy's ass. 

No surprise there.

The reaction we're really interested in is that of Kanye's long-suffering wife, Kim Kardashian.

According to a new report from Radar Online, Kim was "horrified" by her husband's Oval Office tirade.

Kanye with Trump

An insider tells the site that the mother of three no longer feels safe in her own home and “has been getting threats" ever since the rant went viral.

"It has come to the point where she feels unsafe and fears for her safety and that of the kids," the source adds.

Rumors of Kim and Kanye getting divorced have been circulating for years, but they've never seemed more credible than right now.

Confessional Time

Sources describe the marriage as “extremely strained,” noting that Kanye is moving to Chicago soon, and Kim has no plans to follow him.

“She just cannot handle another breakdown,” one insider says.

We can't blame her for feeling stressed, but it's important to point out that Kanye made a good point or two amidst all that nonsense.

Very Serious Kimye

"There's a lot of things that affect our mental health that make us do crazy things," West opined at one point.

To be fair, we can't think of a single statement that more accurately encapsulates life in 2018.

It's just the sort of thing we wish he had tweeted instead of shouting to a bunch of reporters in the Oval Office while Kid Rock stood in the foyer waiting to offer his two cents.

Kim Kardashian’ Disgusted’ with Kourtney and Khloé’s Japan Outfits: ‘It’s Actually Embarrassing’

Don’t come between Kim Kardashian West and one of her photo shoots.

On Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim, 37, planned a trip to Japan in late February to shoot a Yeezy campaign debuting season 7.

“I love working with Kanye in that way because he will listen to me on things that are important to me, and I’ll trust him on colors and fabrics,” she said of working with her husband Kanye West, 41. “So it really does work so well.”

“I only have a few days to get 20 looks shot,” she explained. “Japan is the campaign — we can’t recreate it. There are dozens of people working on this, so it is a lot of pressure. It’s my husband’s collection and I want to make sure that I do a good job and that he likes how everything turns out.”

But things got awkward when Kim decided to bring sisters Kourtney, 39, and Khloé, 34, on the trip — only to hate all of their fashion choices. After their first night out, she decided she had to say something.

“I can’t even eat dinner because I’m so disgusted with my sisters’ crazy outfits that completely don’t go with my look,” she said. “Like, I can’t take it.”

“My sisters look so crazy,” she went on. “It’s actually embarrassing. Kourtney with the Japanese-inspired outfit, and Khloé is wearing silver sequins, turquoise eyeshadow, huge chandelier earrings — they’re just like, completely clashing and making my outfit look really bad and they’re ruining everything. I need the Yeezy collection to be debuted and not all this crazy distraction in the background.”

Sitting down with her sisters the next morning, Kim didn’t sugarcoat her opinions, point-blank telling them they looked like “f—ing clowns.”

“I’m not kidding. This is not like, a tourist thing where it’s Halloween, dress up like a f—ing Japanese geisha, unless we’re at a geisha house,” she said. “I just think you’ve got to like, chill. Like, you can be cooler. I’m not telling you guys who to be and what to wear or anything, but I’m telling you who to be and what to wear. It could be time for a fashion overhaul, so that you stay young and relevant.”

And as the days went on, Kim’s criticism showed no signs of slowing down.

“Kourtney and all of the glam people, at this point, hate me, because I just killed all of their dreams,” she said. “And I don’t care. If you can’t take the criticism, you shouldn’t have come on this trip.”

At one point, she told Kourtney she looked “like a f—ing grandma, 100 percent.”

“You don’t look anything special,” she said. “You don’t look anything innovative and I think you have it in you.”

“Now I think Kim’s just being rude, and rude to everyone in glam,” Kourtney argued. “We’re all doing fun looks together and it’s not that serious. I think Kim and I don’t always see eye-to-eye as far of the importance of traveling and living in the moment. … I have three children and a full-time job. I don’t have seven stylists.”

Kim tried to explain where she was coming from: “I know that I’ve been kind of snappy and very opinionated, but I’m here for the Yeezy campaign,” she said. “I don’t have time to be beating around the bush here.”

“But I feel like we’re also here to have fun, wear some fun stuff, do some fun makeup, whatever,” Kourtney replied. “And by the way, I liked all my outfits.”

“I don’t know — I saw what I saw, and I saw f—ing clowns,” Kim said.

“Nobody wants to wake up and be criticized from head-to-toe the whole day long,” Kourtney sighed.

Her response shocked Kim, who pointed out that the “old Kourtney” would have fought back.

“So would you rather me f—ing say your f—ing outfits suck? You’re wearing a puffy vest, you have pink hair and turquoise shoes,” Kourtney retorted. “I didn’t come here to wear leggings that are see-through and show my a— off. Do you know easy it is to a bitch? I could be a bitch all f—ing day if that’s what you want. But guess what? It takes a lot more courage to show your feelings than to sit there and be a bitch.”

Eventually, Kim agreed that her delivery may have been a bit harsh and promised to work on it.

“I feel like I always pride myself in being honest,” she said. “I will definitely work on my delivery, but my message, I think is pretty clear.”

And it was all worth it the end, because she got all 20 looks shot.

“It was a lot of work but we did it, and with how amazing and pretty this city is, this campaign is going to be super dope,” she said. “Kanye is so happy with how the shoot turned out and I feel like it was a really good trip for us overall.”

Kim Kardashian Embarassed by Kanye’s ‘SNL’ Rant, but Will Always Support Him

Kanye West does so much stupid stuff that you’d think Kim Kardashian-West would be used to it by now. But no, Kanye always does something that much dumber and resets the bar for Kim.

This time it was his Donald Trump spiel at the end of last Saturday’s SNL performance, talking about his MAGA hat and so on.

During the show’s closing credits, Kanye spoke about wearing his hat and implying SNL producers told him not to wear it.

“You see they laughing at me. You heard ’em, they scream at me, they bully me. They bullied me backstage they said, “Don’t go out there with that hat on.” They bullied me backstage. They bullied me.

And then they say I’m in a sunken place. You want to see the sunken place? Okay, I’ma listen to y’all now.’

Or I’ma put my Superman cape on, which means you can’t tell me what to do.”

Cool, cool, cool. When can we just get some Kanye music?

A source told PEOPLE:

“Having all this backlash against Kanye is embarrassing for her and her family, but she will never say that…She supports Kanye through and through and truly does think her husband is entitled to his own opinion.”

That’s admirable, stand by your man. Ride or die. Can’t hate on that. She probably just holds her kids, cries quietly and tells them Daddy’s sick.

Kim Kardashian Says Having Three Kids Left Her ‘Fully Neglecting’ Kanye West

Kim Kardashian West has her hands full with three kids — and the adjustment period hasn’t been easy on her husband Kanye West, either.

On Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the KardashiansKim, 37, opened up about how their growing brood has affected her relationship with West, 41. (They share daughters North, 5, Chicago, 8 months, and son Saint, 2½.)

“Having three kids, honestly, is crazy,” she said. “I remember it was really hard for North when Saint was born, so I kind of put everything into North to make her feel extra special. And now, with Chicago, I’m trying to work even to make sure North and Saint feel like they have enough time with me and they feel super loved and that no one is going to take their place.”

But with Kim channeling all her energy into the kids, West had begun feeling neglected, leading to some tension between Mom and Dad. In one scene, Kim revealed the couple had fought over — wait for it — her Instagram feed.

“He wanted to me post six Polaroids from that shoot that I posted — those nude pictures. But I posted one from the beach,” Kim recounted to sister Kourtney, 39. “He wanted them to all match up and be all from the motel. That’s what the f—ing fight was! I’m like, ‘I like the beach one.’ He’s like, ‘No, you don’t understand, I see the vision!’ ”

When Kim said she had to post about her fragrance line, West apparently shut it down, demanding she promote the other shoot instead.

“He’s like, ‘F— your fragrance for one day. You need six motels ones. Why’d you post the beach one? You’ve got to delete the beach one,’ ” she said. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t sit here and organize my Instagram with you. Who cares about this?’ He’s like, ‘I care, trust me.’ ”

“He’s always right in the end, but I’m just like, it’s my Instagram — you can’t tell me what to post,” she said. “That’s like, the one thing. No one will tell me what to post. I’m allowed to have an opinion.”

RELATED: Kim Kardashian Says Kanye West Told Her to Stop Wearing Big Sunglasses Over Email

In another scene with Khloé Kardashian, Kim relayed a fight she’d had with West after she didn’t get him the right band-aid.

“He was like, ‘I’ve slaved around the world for you making clothes for you to make sure that you find the best outfit and you let me go out wearing a Jesus band-aid.’ He said I should have a skin-colored band-aid. So I’m running around looking for different colored band-aids when I’ve got three kids to look after? … Just because I didn’t give birth to this baby doesn’t mean that my plate is not totally full.”

“When you have three kids, it’s kind of a wild household,” she continued. “I’m kind of annoyed because I wish he would understand I’m exhausted. Like, go get your own band-aid.”

But it turned out that West was actually upset about something else: He felt that if Saint needed a particular band-aid, Kim would immediately get it.

“I was like, ‘Oh my God. Are you fighting with Saint? Is this a thing?’ ” she said.

Later, Kim admitted her fights with West were “really stupid and lately, we’ve been having a lot.”

“I think so many husbands feel neglected when you start having kids and then all of their attention gets taken away,” she surmised.

“Sometimes men still want to be treated as like, the first baby,” said Khloé. “I know Kim is so overwhelmed and I think sometimes it’s easy to get distracted, or you think because they’re adults they can take care of themselves, but your husband still wants you to take care of him. I’m sure with three kids you’re tired at the end of the day and you don’t make that a priority, but she really has to.”

Eventually, Kim decided to take her sister’s advice and surprise West with something special for Valentine’s Day: a heart-shaped box of band-aids and some lingerie.

“After my conversation with Khloé, the one thing that I realized is I make such a priority for all the kids, and I go above and beyond for them, but in that, I’m fully neglecting my husband,” she said. “So I just want to give Kanye the attention and love that he needs. … When you have so many kids, it’s important to still make your relationship a top priority.”

“Kanye is so thoughtful and even when he’s in crazy work mode he always takes the time to check in on me, see what’s going on,” she added. “And I think when I get in super busy mode, I need to just slow down and be a bit more thoughtful. I think I’ve definitely gotten better with that after this.”

All the while, Kim’s feud with Kourtney was raging on. This time, things kicked off after Kim accidentally included her sister on a family email chain about Scott Disick wanting to have a fourth kid with Kourtney.

“I was talking about Kourtney in the email as if she wasn’t on the email,” said Kim. “I thought it was like, a cute thing and I was just gossiping with the family, but it definitely looks like I was trying to talk about her without her knowing.”

Kourtney was having none of it and took it upon herself to cuss her sister out “like you’ve never seen” off-camera.

“I just feel like it never ends with my sister and I fighting. The topic of Scott and I having a fourth kid has never even been discussed so I don’t know where this is coming from. I’m in a relationship and sending an email behind my back is just so malicious,” said Kourtney, who was dating Younes Bendjima at the time.

“I don’t understand why Kim is involved in this at all,” she said. “I have a boyfriend, Scott has a girlfriend and I just don’t relate to the backstabbing, manipulating, lying. We were raised better, to know how important loyalty is, and that’s not how you treat your family members.”

“We’re supposed to protect each other from this kind of stuff,” she continued. “We don’t share each other’s personal business. I feel like Kim needs to realize that she shouldn’t be involved in the decisions that are made in my life.”

Kim eventually apologized and they moved on — but as it turns out, the whole thing was one giant miscommunication, because Disick had never actually said he wanted a fourth kid with Kourtney in the first place. But as Kim explained, this family is “always in each other’s business, and sometimes, the lines get really blurred.”

Kim Kardashian Shows Off North’s Orange Saturday Night Live Look: ‘Who Is the Bigger Diva?’

North West watched Saturday Night Live in style.

Kim Kardashian West, 37, shared 5-year-old North’s glam look before Kanye West, 41, performed on the show over the weekend.

On her Instagram story, Kardashian West showed North getting her hair brushed in a bright orange dress, bold matching eyeliner and white sneakers. “Oh, come on,” Kardashian West narrated. “Who is the bigger diva?”

“Let me see this look. Let me see this look,” Kardashian West called as North ran away.

North got the full glam squad treatment. “She’s coming for me and stealing my glam squad,” Kardashian West captioned a picture of North in the makeup chair.

In another video, as North’s hair was styled, Kardashian West asked, “Hey North, who’s the prettiest girl in the whole world?”

“Penelope,” North answered, giving a shout-out to her cousin Penelope Disick, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick‘s 6-year-old daughter.

“That’s a sweet answer,” Kardashian West replied.

In the studio, Kardashian West gave her fans a peek at North dancing along to the music. Kardashian West captured a cute father-daughter moment when West picked up North after exiting the stage, winning a big smile from North.

It was a full night for the Kardashian crew at Saturday Night Live, which Kardashian and Disick also attended.

At the end of the show, West, who replaced Ariana Grande as the musical guest after she had to drop out, gave a pro-Donald Trump speech that did not make it to air and received some boos from the audience.

“Actually, blacks weren’t always Democrats,” West started. “It’s like a plan they did to take the fathers out the homes and promote welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s the Democratic plan.”

Later in the speech, he said of Trump, “But this man is a builder.”

He continued, “And when I said I’m running in 2020, all my smart friends talked so much s— about me. And when I saw that man win, I said, ‘See, I told you. I could have been there.’”

Painting the Town Pink! Kim Kardashian Flaunts Her Curves During N.Y.C. Outing with Husband YE

Kim Kardashian West is supporting her man — and showing off her assets!

The KKW Beauty mogul, 37, and her husband YE (formerly known as Kanye West) were spotted together during a late night outing on Friday in New York City, just one day before the 41-year-old rapper’s scheduled performance on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live and release of his new album, Yandhi.

“Kim flew to NYC to support Kanye’s SNL appearance,” a source tells PEOPLE, adding that she also brought along all three of the couple’s children: North, 5, Saint, 2½, and Chicago, 8 months.

For their public outing, the reality star looked ready for a night out on the town, wearing a hot pink mini dress with a cutout highlighting her rock-hard abs. Adding in a bit of comfort to the look, she accessorized with a pair of Yeezy sneakers.

The rapper, who announced on Saturday that he had changed his name to YE, was dressed casually in a beige sweatshirt, white pants and sand-colored Yeezy footwear.

The insider told PEOPLE that the musician’s decision to go by a new moniker “must be something very recent.”

“It could be one of Kanye’s spontaneous ideas that he sometimes wakes up with in the morning. Usually, Kim will just roll her eyes at these ideas and ignore,” the insider adds.

On Saturday morning, the father of three announced on Twitter that he would only be known by the name of YE.

“The being formally known as Kanye West. I am YE,” he wrote.

The name has a lot of symbolism for the musician, who titled his last album YE.

In addition to being a shortened version of his full name, the moniker also holds a deeper, spiritual meaning.

I believe YE is the most commonly used word in the Bible,” he told Real 92.3’s Big Boy when promoting his music in June. “In the Bible it means ‘you.’ So I’m you, I’m us. It went from being Kanye, which means the only one, to being just YE — just being a reflection of our good, our bad, our confused, everything. I’m just more a reflection of who we are.”

The 21-time Grammy winner also appeared to foreshadow his choice earlier this week when he released a snippet of a song from his forthcoming album.

“I’m givin’ up my slave name / I’m givin’ up my slave name,” he sings in the tune, which he played for employees at Fader on Thursday.

During the song, he then went on to suggest that his children do the same. “Saint, you don’t really need a last name / North, you don’t really need a last name,” he said of his son and eldest daughter.

Khloe Kardashian Goes Into Labor After Tristan’s Cheating Scandal Breaks

On the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kylie Jenner gave birth. It took more than seven months for that to air.

Viewers knew that it was only a matter of time before the show reached Khloe and her much more controversial childbirth.

In this preview video, you can see Kim, Khloe, and the rest of her family react as Khloe goes into labor ... and Tristan's cheating scandal is exposed.

Kim kardashian has a tense discussion

In the Keeping Up With The Kardashians preview teaser video that we have for you, the show teases what remains to be seen on this season.

When it really becomes interesting is when, very clearly, the story of Tristan Thompson's cheating scandal breaks.

"They have another video of him," Kim can be heard saying into her phone.

She is clearly referring to Tristan Thompson and the evidence of him being with other women during Khloe's pregnancy.

"Unfollowed, I hate him," Kim announces in another part of the clip. "Sorry, not sorry."

Khloe kardashian goes into labor

Kim's reaction was one thing, but what everyone wants to see is how Khloe responded to the news that her love and baby daddy is a no-good dirty cheater.

As we all know, it was a matter of hours after that scandal broke that Khloe went into labor with baby True.

"The things I can control, I have to be able to control," Khloe can be heard saying.

That is a fairly grounded response to such explosive news -- though of course we can imagine that some responses may have been edited out.

Khloe does, after all, have veto power over footage from the show.

She gets an ultrasound while very pregnant, and also is shown going into labor while her family races to get to where she is in Cleveland.

"I hope everyone gets here in time," Khloe says.

You can also see a van full of her family members racing towards her.

As widely reported as Tristan's scandal was and True's birth was, we never really got a behind-the-scenes look or Khloe's reaction immediately afterwards.

We hope that, despite Khloe's editorial powers, we get to see her raw reaction. Fans are curious. It's human nature.

We'll definitely get to see at least some of the responses, from anger to disbelief, of Khloe's extended family. We wonder what Tristan will think.

Arguably the second-most-interesting storyline in this teaser is Kim using her platform for civil rights advocacy.

The story of a woman using her fame and beauty to influence a terrible old orange man to pardon a grandmother is definitely compelling.

Speaking of Trump, Kim also addresses Kanye West's worrisome bad behavior and outlandish statements.

In this case, it looks like fans can expect to see more or less the same sentiments that she has expressed publicly.

She believes that Kanye's apparently uncontrolled, no-filter declarations about Trump and "dragon energy" aren't signs of mental illness.

Kim kardashian is looking great

Kim may be right. If she is, Kanye isn't mentally troubled -- he may just be a bad person.

And it is of course unfair to malign the mentally ill, many of whom are good people, by confusing bad behavior with mental health.

Viewers will also get to see things like Kendall, who is famously anxious, try skydiving for the first time. Also, Kris falls down playing baseball.

Honestly? That could all be entertaining, but it's just filler.

Khloe's heartbreak, Kim's activism, and Kanye's nonsense look like the real meat of the rest of the season.

Kylie Jenner’s Secret Pregnancy Gave Kris ‘Anxiety’ — But It Was a ‘Such a Positive Experience’

At long last, Kylie Jenner‘s pregnancy is being openly discussed on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Sunday’s episode chronicled the new mom welcoming her first child, daughter Stormi, with rapper Travis Scott on Feb. 1. When the day arrived, Kylie chose to have just her mom Kris Jenner and sister Khloé Kardashian in the delivery room with her, in addition to Scott. And while the other sisters may have been disappointed to be left out, they were mostly relieved that they wouldn’t be blamed if the secret got out. (Though PEOPLE first confirmed the news of the baby on the way in September 2017, Kylie, 21, didn’t publicly address it until after she gave birth.)

“Kylie is about to have her baby and it’s pretty crazy that it really hasn’t been confirmed,” said Kourtney, 39. “So I don’t want to be the one with the info, or getting blamed for someone finding out the secret.”

Kim, 37, marveled that her little sister had some amazing friends for having kept the news under wraps all those months.

“Can you believe that Kylie got out of the hospital with not one report?” she said. “Now Caitlyn can never say we have big mouths and we leak everything. We kept that a secret!”

Momager Kris, 62, admitted keeping a lid on the news wasn’t easy.

“That was a lot of anxiety for me,” she said. “People were saying, ‘We’re going to post, we’re going to announce,’ and I’m like, ‘No!’ But she did it perfectly and it was such a positive experience for her.”

“Totally,” Kim said. “Everyone was just like, ‘Okay, we get it. We get why you kept it private.’ … Kylie’s always wanted to be a mom, so this is really exciting for her. She just didn’t want anyone changing her happy moment and her happy pregnancy, so I’m really proud of her that she stuck to her guns and was able to tell her story her way.”

And Kylie, who said she was “really doing this for myself,” said the experience couldn’t have gone any better.

“I like ” she said. “I miss it. I had the easiest pregnancy ever. You never feel alone — I was really sad to not be pregnant anymore.”

At the end of the day, no one was more proud than Kris, who delivered the baby herself.

“It’s only been a couple of days since Kylie had baby Stormi, and I can already tell that Kylie is going to be the most amazing mom and is so in love with her baby,” she gushed.

But at the same time, the momager was going through a challenging time with a different daughter.

“My relationship with Kourtney over the years has been kind of fabulous, but lately there’s definitely a shift,” she said. “I really don’t know where this is coming from and it makes me really, really sad. I just wish she would make an effort to treat me the way I would love to be treated. I love her so much. She’s my firstborn daughter.”

As it turned out, the tension had started bubbling up after Kourtney’s therapist apparently informed her that she has an “issue with betrayal” because Kris cheated on her father, the late Robert Kardashian Sr., with soccer player Todd Waterman.

“Lately, in therapy, a lot of topics that have been coming up are about childhood issues and how that affects so many of my relationships today,” she said. “If I had a problem, I wouldn’t go to , ever. I would go to Dad. She was not my person that I found comforting.”

But Kris said Kourtney was “doted on” as a child.

“I think she’s going through a phase in life where she has some anger inside that I don’t quite understand,” she said. “I wish her dad was around to say, ‘You’ve had the best most magical childhood of any child, ever.’ That’s what we prided ourselves on.”

“She probably felt like she was always picking a side and it was always my dad’s,” remarked Khloé, 34. “In the divorce, she picked his. In the trial, she picked his. She wanted to live there over your house. She’s always picked his.”

Khloé said she wished her sister would communicate her feelings more openly with the family.

“I know Kourtney, for some reason, finds more comfort in talking to a stranger about family stuff, rather than talking to the source,” she said. “I would be fine with that if Kourtney took whatever her therapist talked about and then came to the source, but that’s the part we’re missing and that’s what’s frustrating to us all, because we never resolve something or work through something or just even fight about something if we don’t know what’s going on. It’s always us pulling teeth and guessing with her.”

Eventually, Kourtney decided she had to talk things through with Kris.

“If my going to therapy and figuring this all out is making me resentful towards my mom, which is not how I want to feel and it’s not how I want to treat her, then I feel like it is worth having a conversation with her, just to let her know that’s not my intention,” she said. “It’s really about me working on myself.”

“I’ve gone through a phase of being more sensitive to things,” she admitted. “It’s nothing bad, it’s just understanding and then understanding how that affects our current relationships. Like, if there’s certain behavior that Younes will do that’s similar to things that my mom would do, just subconsciously, it will just bring up similar issues. There is that uncomfortable place when you are growing, but I think it’s something that I have to just deal with myself.”

Sitting down with her mom, Kourtney did her best to explain where she was coming from.

“As you know, I’ve been gong to therapy lately and my therapist says your intimate relationships bring up childhood issues,” she said. “I just don’t think it’s fair if I’m not communicating it. I don’t want to go back in time … I feel like it has passed and I’m not feeling that way anymore, but I just wanted to explain that to you so you understand where it’s coming from.”

“What we usually do as a family is we criticize each other, we’re judgmental and we give each other an attitude and we’re bitchy,” she added. “So moving forward in life, I’ve made a point with my sisters already to not accept that anymore.”

Tearing up, Kris said all she wanted was “the best, most joyful, peaceful life” for her daughter.

“Whatever it takes for me to be part of that, that’s all I want,” she said. “That’s the joy of my life, is you guys. I have nothing else. I never want you to be disappointed in me, so if there’s something you want to say or something that you need to have me work on, I’m 100 percent ready to work on it because I love you so much. You’re my firstborn and I wouldn’t trade that for anything.”

The two of them hugged it out, and Kourtney agreed to work on things, too.

“Moving forward, I’m going to tell you if I don’t like something or if something is hurtful, instead of just being a bitch about it,” she promised.

“I think Kourtney and I have gotten through that rough patch and started a healing process,” said Kris. “That’s a really big step in the right direction, especially for her. She’s always going to hang onto the past a little bit, but what I am hopeful for is that we can look forward to an amazing future together because I love her more than anything.”

Kanye West is Keeping Nick Cannon’s Career Alive

Kanye West isn’t happy that his wife allegedly gets around.

A few weeks ago, rumors came out that Drake had slept with Kim Kardashian. Kim tried to shut that shit down, but people stopped paying attention to what she was saying a long time ago. Nick Cannon jumped in with his two cents and people really didn’t care about that.

But the feud must go on.

Emerging from the sunken place known as Kris Jenner’s Klutches, Kanye broke his silence on the rumors.

Kanye had this to say for those that don’t want to listen:

“First of all, I want to address Nick Cannon. I understand that you used to date my wife, but you know, you get into an interview, don’t mention my wife.

“People making rumors or thinking you f— my wife and you’re not saying nothing…that don’t sit well with my spirit. You know, if I had a girlfriend from Chicago, her name was Renita, and you was married to Rihanna, I wouldn’t make no song called Riri. So when you’re like, ‘Ahhh I don’t know where it come from,’ you too smart for that bro,” West continued. “You know where that come from. Don’t make no record with nothing that can be confused.”

Cannon, loving his name being back in the spotlight, couldn’t help respond.

Cannon was mainly upset that Kanye tried to “silence him.”

“I’ve never said anything disrespectful or harmful, in my opinion, to your marriage or your union. I salute it, keep it going. But you not going to tell me what I can and what I can’t say. I’m a solid individual; Somebody ask me a question, imma answer it to the best of my ability. I’m going to give my opinion and ain’t no harm, no foul, but if it got your spirit feeling weird, holler at me.’

“I got nothing but love for you, but you know I’ll always speak my mind, just like you always speak yours. Not you, not NBC, no corporate infrastructures, no one is ever gonna control what I say because I speak truth always, it’s love.”

Pretty sure NBC did silence him, but we’ll let Nick live in his fantasy world. Cannon also invited Kanye to appear on Wild N Out, which is a show that still exists in 2018.

This feud is the worst. Can Kanye just go back to make good music and not caring who his wife slept with? Because we’re going to be here awhile.

The post Kanye West is Keeping Nick Cannon’s Career Alive appeared first on The Blemish.

Kris Jenner to Kanye West: Stop Attacking the Men in Kim’s Life!

As you may have heard, Kanye West went off on Nick Cannon, Drake, and Tyson Beckford in a rambling, self-shot video that appeared online yesterday.

What pissed Kanye off, it seems is that all three men have -- allegedly or otherwise -- expressed opinions about Kim Kardashian sometime in the past few weeks.

Very Serious Kimye

Yes, it seems verbalizing a thought about the most famous woman on the planet is enough to land you on Yeezy's sh-t list these days.

Hell, Drake didn't even actually say anything about Kim.

He just featured a character named Kiki in a song, but that was enough to spark rumors that Drake was boning Kim, which was enough to earn Drizzy a mention in the world's laziest diss track.

Obviously, Kanye has a long history of making every situation far worse by opening his mouth, and it seems he may have done exactly that once again.

Hands Up

But this time, it's not Kim who's encouraging the rapper to shut his yap.

Now it seems Kris Jenner is in on the act, and sources say she absolutely tore Kanye a new one this week for bringing so much negative attention to his family.

"Kris is not happy at all and she reamed Kanye out because she thinks that he is putting his family in danger," a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.

It seems Cannon may have been correct in his theory that Drake has damaging information about the Kardashians, as Kris is apparently deeply concerned about what he might reveal.

Kris Talks

"Kris told Kanye that Drake is shady, and everyone knows he is shady," the insider says of Kris' stern warning.

"She knows that she cannot silence Kanye ever, but she told him that she doesn’t want him going off about it anymore.”

It seems Kim doesn't see eye-to-eye with her mother on this issue and instead feels proud that Kanye stood up for her in such public fashion.

But even she recognizes that there's been far too much Kanye-related drama in recent months.

Classic Kimye

“Kim is thankful that he put them in their place but she just wants the petty sh-t to end,” says the source.

It may seem silly for a family who lives their lives so publicly to be concerned about 45 seconds of trash talk, but the Kards have practically reached political dynasty-levels of fame.

They have a policy of keeping their friends close and their enemies closer (hence why Scott Disick is still invited to family functions) and Kanye is messing with the program by airing so much dirty laundry.

But if Kris thinks a stern warning will be enough to shut Kanye's mouth down, we're afraid she's in for a hard lesson.

Kanye West Blasts Nick Cannon, Drake, Tyson Beckford in Bizarre Video

Earlier this month, Kanye West went on an apology spree, trying to make nice with others and even telling Drake to "take his good energy." Whatever that means.

Now, however, it looks like Kanye has changed his tune. He recorded a video message for various men in the music industry with whom he has a beef.

The short version? Don't talk about his wife, don't think about his wife, and definitely don't suggest that you've ever boned her.

Kanye west face on video

"I just wanted to express some things that were not sitting right with my spirit," Kanye explains.

Kanye continues: "Now that I’m up out the sunken place I can think and I can just be ‘Ye and express how I feel."

When he says the sunken place, he is referring to Get Out, though some would argue that he is using the reference with the opposite of its intended meaning.

"There’s a couple of things that I want to address," Kanye explains.

Kanye on the radio

"First of all I want to address Nick Cannon," Kanye announces.

"I understand that you used to date my wife," he says. "But you know, you get into an interview, don’t mention my wife."

That is something that many would consider to be an odd or intrusive instruction.

"If someone brings my wife up, say, ‘I respect that man, I’m not speaking on that,'" Kanye demands. "Don’t be making no suggestions -- like nobody f--k my wife"

That demand might have gone over better with some fans if Kanye had asked Nick to respect Kim. But Kanye is all about Kanye.

Very serious kimye

So, Kanye produced a song of Pusha T's that called out Drake for allegedly using a ghostwriter for his music.

"Now if I wasn’t in a medicated state I might have thought and had the wherewithal to say, ‘Hey Pusha, don’t diss Drake on my beat," Kanye admits.

"And I spoke about that and took accountability for that," he says.

"People making rumors or thinking you f--k my wife and you’re not saying nothing…" Kanye continues. "That don’t sit well with my spirit."

Kanye west as a guest

It has long been speculated that the "Kiki" from Drake's song, "In My Feelings," may have been Kim Kardashian, even though she never boned Drake.

"You know, if I had a girlfriend from Chicago, her name was Renita, and you was married to Rihanna, I wouldn’t make no song called Riri," Kanye says.

"So when you’re like, ‘Ahhh I don’t know where it come from,’ you too smart for that bro," Kanye insists.

"You know where that come from," Kanye continues to lecture Drake. "Don’t make no record with nothing that can be confused."

These are some hefty demands.

Kanye west on rap stage

You know how Pusha T revealed that Drake had a secret child?

"Now I told ya, I didn’t tell Pusha no information about your baby, baby mama, nothing," Kanye says. "That don’t come from me,”

“Don’t speak on nobody from our family," Kanye commands. "Nothing that can even be mentioned with my wife period."

"We don’t have to talk again," Kanye says. "I’m not giving no energy to that."

Kanye's dragon energy isn't an unlimited resource, we guess.

Hands up

Kanye moved on to yet another target.

"As far as Tyson Beckford goes, don’t speak on my wife, bro," Kanye insists.

"Like none of y’all speak on my wife period," he demands. "What are you talking about? I’m married. We’re in love, we’re a family."

We don't think that anyone seriously questions that, but apparently, in Kanye's mind, these men should never mention Kim Kardashian.

"All three of y’all, come talk to me," Kanye instructs. "We’ll work it out."

Kanye just told Drake that they didn't need to speak again in one breath, and then invited him to talk to him with the next.

"Nick Cannon, Drake, Tyson Beckford," Kanye concludes. "All that wasn’t sittin’ right with me."

Yes. That much is clear.

It will be interesting to see how they respond to Kanye's Thursday message.

In this post, we have a combined version of the videos for you. Watch it for yourself and see what you think.

Kim and Khloe Kardashian Play the "Kylie Pregnancy Game"

Kim Kardashian apparently does not read The Hollywood Gossip.

It provides us with some solace, however, to at least realize that she doesn't read the Internet at all.

That's our main takeaway from this sneak peek at this Sunday's Keeping Up with the Kardashians episode, as Kim confides with Khloe early on about the major secret everyone in the family has been tasked with... well... keeping.

This secret is that Kylie Jenner is pregnant with Travis Scott's baby.

“The funnest game ever is the Kylie pregnancy game, just to see what people think,” says Kim to her sister. “Like, there were pictures of her out on TMZ and she looked so skinny.”

“I know, ’cause it’s the angle,” replied Khloe. “They got her from face-on. But if they got a side shot, it would have been over for her.”

Yes, game over.

The implication here is that no one outside of Kylie's very close circle is aware that she's expecting...

... even though pretty much EVERYone was aware that Kylie was expecting.

We helped break this news back in September, and we're pretty sure these Season 15 episodes were filmed in November or December.

(Remember the fight Kim and Khloe got into with Kourtney about her not showing up for the Christmas card shoot?)

Still, the family evidently believes that anyone outside of, like, Calabasas is clueless simply because Kylie herself had not confirmed her pregnancy at the time of filming.

Later in this clip, Kim tells Jenner that her expecting state “has been the best-kept secret of our generation," which is just an amazing quote.

“I’m not trying to keep it secret,” Jenner says. “I’m really doing this for myself.”

(Editor's Note: You were, by definition, keeping it a secret. The basis for said secret-keeping wasn't really the question here.)

“Your friends deserve awards. Like, seriously,” Kim responds. “Now you know you have some real ones. That wouldn’t have happened in my day.”

Jenner never actually addresses her situation until AFTER she gave birth, finally saying once Stormi Webster entered the world:

I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions.

I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world.

I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how.

There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned.

I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians Recap: Hello, Chicago!

Chicago West was ready for primetime this week.

Not that the infant was really given a choice.

Kim Kardashian, One on One

On the latest installment of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim and Kanye's surrogate was very close to giving birth (man, these episodes were filmed a loooong time ago), as the series gave fans an inside look at Kardashian's baby-naming process. 

How did she arrive at North and then Saint and, as we all know by now, Chicago?

While at lunch with Kourtney, Kim said that she might want to look at “zodiac signs” as inspirations for her thid child. 

Kourtney wasn't in love with the idea, however, strangely commenting: “No, that’s like, the devil.”

In the end, of course, Kim and her rapping husband went with the city in which the latter was born over anything allegedly related to Satan.

“They’re gonna go crazy and then they’ll get used to it, and then they’ll go, ‘oh that’s normal,'" Kim remarked, acknowledging the likely reaction to this unusual name.

The name clearly is way out there, but the child herself is quite adorable:

Kim and Her Chicago

Elsewhere, let's remain on the topic of babies...

Khloe was also close to giving birth during this episode, and she made a major/awkward announcement at one point.

She decided between Kim and Kourtney as the godparent of her impending daughter.

“I always thought Kourtne would be the godparent of my child,” she said in a confessional.

However, Khloe admitted that she had grown closer to Kim of late, prompting Kourtney to almost campaign for the gig by dissing her sibling as a mother.

"You know who’s always sick? North and Saint," she said to Khloe, sort of randomly and definitely with an ulterior motive.

Kourtney Kardashian in a Confessional

Could Kris Jenner be of any assistance?

When Khloe asked her mom for advice, Kris compared the parenting style of Kim and Kourtney, both of whom have three children.

"Kourtney has a certain set of values and she goes to church,” she said, adding of Kim:

“She’s very hands on with the home work … the grooming’s impeccable.”

Okay, so: Kourtney will try to instill positive, Christian values in your child and Kim will make sure she looks stylist.

Who do you choose, Khloe?

Kris Jenner on Season 15

Kim, of course!

"From what I envision my parenting style to be, I envision it more like Kim, a little bit stricter,” Khloe said, causing further friction between herself and Kourtney.

“Once Khloe has her own daughter and she is really a mom she will realize we have more in common than she thinks as far as parenting styles," Kourtney later told the camera.

There was also a very dumb flash mob non-prank this week, along with a tease about next Sunday's episode.

As the installment concluded, we were given got a rare peek into Kylie Jenner's pregnancy, with the family discovered she was going into labor.

In a testimonial shot, the beauty expert explained of her pregnancy.

“I’m not trying to keep a secret. I’m really doing this for myself."

Well, the secret is now out.

And we'll learn a lot more about it next Sunday, apparently.

Why Khloé Kardashian Picked Kim to Be True’s Godparent: ‘She’s So Secure in Her Life’

Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians was all about the family’s baby boom.

With Khloé Kardashian preparing to welcome her first child, baby True, with Tristan Thompson, she was tasked with selecting her daughter’s legal guardian.

“I am a huge planner, I love to be prepared,” she explained. “That’s just how I am. I always thought Kourtney would be the godparent of my child, but lately I’ve been watching Kimberly and she’s been someone that I really gravitate to as a mom. So it’s a tough choice between Kourtney and Kim.”

Kourtney stopped by Khloé’s house to ask whether she’d given the matter some thought.

“Um, I mean, I don’t know,” responded Khloé, 34. “What I was told is that I can’t set that up until I have a birth certificate.”

“You have to think who has the best values of what you want your kids to be around and see and experience,” said Kourtney, 39, who shares sons Mason, 8, Reign, 3, and daughter Penelope, 6, with ex Scott Disick,

Later, Kourtney revealed she had assumed it would be her.

“I don’t know why this even something Khloé has to think about,” she said. “My passion is my kids and my family and we’re always doing fun things and traveling. The kids have a sense of freedom but we also have boundaries, so I’m obviously the best choice.”

But Khloé admitted she had been feeling especially connected with Kim, 37, who shares daughters North, 5, Chicago, 7 months, and son Saint, 2, with husband Kanye West. (At the time, she was still expecting Chicago via surrogacy.)

“I feel like Kim has been so selfless during my pregnancy,” said Khloé. “She’s trying to just help make sure that you feel your best, look your best, have the best. She’s so secure in her life that I feel like she would be an incredible godparent. She’s just been a great friend and sister.”

Seeking advice from momager Kris Jenner, Khloé asked her how she went about choosing her own kids’ legal guardians.

“I think when Kendall was born, I thought about who I felt the closest to and who I would love the way that they brought their kids up and the way they ran their families and what they were all about,” explained Jenner, 62. “You spend enough time in both houses. You just have to think: Where would I want my child being raised, in which environment? Who would I feel like my baby is going to be most comfortable and most loved ?”

“I mean, Kourtney has a certain set of values and she goes to church and I think she would raise a child to believe in God,” added Jenner. “Kim, on the other hand, she’s very hands-on with the homework and with just making sure that the kids are always where they’re supposed to be. She’s very attentive and the grooming is impeccable. … Just listen to your heart and listen to your mind, because those two things will tell you exactly who you’re supposed to pick.”

Finally, Khloé came to her decision: “I have thought this over long and hard and I’ve decided what I want to do,” she said. “I just have to make the best decision for my daughter but I also am not trying to hurt anybody’s feelings.”

“Watching Kimberly be a mom, I really respect her parenting skills — not that I don’t respect Kourtney’s, I relate to how Kim parents more,” she continued. “But at the end of the day, this family is so close and we love each other so much and if anything, God forbid, were to happen, I know my daughter is in the best of hands no matter who her legal guardian is.”

Sitting down with her two sisters, she braced herself to break the news to Kourtney.

“I just think you have different parenting styles,” she told them. “I can’t make anything official until after the baby is born, but I am going to probably have Kim as the legal guardian if, God forbid, something happens. Just because I don’t know my parenting style until I have a baby, but from what I envision my parenting style to be, I do think it will be more like Kim — a little more stricter.”

“Guess what? You don’t have to give me an explanation,” replied Kourtney. “I’ve got three kids and I’m busy on my own.”

“You’re at capacity,” suggested Khloé.

“No, I’m not at capacity,” clarified Kourtney, adding that she would like “one plus” more kids.

Kim, meanwhile, said Khloé’s decision was “an honor” and promised she would “take such good care” of any future nieces and nephews.

“I mean, I’m a little bit disappointed that I’m not the guardian, but honestly, you don’t know what your parenting style is until you have kids,” Kourtney said later. “So I think once Khloé has her own daughter and is really a mom, then maybe she will realize that we have more in common than she thinks as far as parenting styles. You never know! Khloé might switch back to me.”

Kim, meanwhile, was preparing to welcome her third child into the world — and she still didn’t have a name picked out.

“She’s coming any minute,” she said. “I think when you have a surrogate and you don’t feel the everyday pains, it just kind of creeps up on you. It’s crazy how fast it comes.”

After shooting down Jenner’s suggestions to name the baby Milan, Italy, or Rome, Kim eventually went with another city: Chicago.

“Everyone’s going to be like, ‘Oh my God, that’s the craziest name,’ ” she said. “And then they’re going to go crazy and then they’ll get used to it.”

As for the inspiration?

“The name Chicago, everyone asked me where we came up with that,” she said. “Kanye is originally from Chicago and the city is really connected to his memory of his mom, so we went with Chicago.”

And though she didn’t carry the baby herself, Kim said their mother-daughter connection was instant.

“The moment I laid eyes on my baby, I was so in love,” she said. “I’m just so excited to have this addition to my family.”

“Honestly, when it’s done, I think was the best decision I ever made,” she reflected. “I think it was such an amazing experience. I would recommend it for anyone. I am the biggest fan of surrogacy. All my fears of everything I thought was going to happen— like, am I going to connect? Am I going to feel connected? All of that goes out the door and you just instantly feel connected.”

“It’s crazy how professional surrogacy is and how instantly with the baby came out, there was no weird feeling that I was so nervous about — am I going to connect with the baby, am I going to feel the same way as if it’s me birthing my kids?” she continued. “And it was the same exact feeling, and that was instantly a relief for me. That was what I was most nervous about and I just feel so lucky that I’ve had such a good experience with surrogacy.”

Getting a ‘Vampire Facial’ Popularized by Kim Kardashian May Have Given People HIV

People do some really dumb shit in the name of looking better, and the vampire facial is one of the dumber ones I’ve heard of. Here’s how it works: You get blood drawn, the plasma is extracted from it, then you get the plasma rubbed on your face while you get the shit stabbed out of it with a micro-needling pen. It’s so idiotic that even Kim Kardashian only did it once.

A few years after the fact, Kim wrote about it on her website, saying “It was really rough and painful for me. It was honestly the most painful thing ever! It’s the one treatment that I’ll never do again.”

Well, CNN is reporting that people in New Mexico who were willing to the pain for whatever supposed benefits this insane treatment offers might have gotten HIV from it.

Now the department is urging clients to visit the state’s Midtown Public Health Office this week for HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C lab testing and counseling.

“It is very important that anyone who received a vampire facial or other injection-related service at the VIP Spa in May or June of 2018 come to the Midtown Public Health Office for free and confidential lab testing and counseling,” Lynn Gallagher, Cabinet secretary for the New Mexico Department of Health, said in the announcement.

Man, who would have thought getting blod splattered on open woulds on your face had health risks? It seemed like it was all upside.

Dr. Michael Dobryansky, a plastic surgeon at the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group who is trained in the cosmetic vampire method, said there is specific training providers must complete to become licensed in a complex procedure like the vampire facial.

“So for patients, when they are investigating places for getting these types of procedures, they need to make sure that the places are actually vampire certified, because there is specific training and there is specific maintenance of certification that that organization requires of its providers in order to be able to both perform the procedures and continuously offer them to patients,” said Dobryansky, who was not involved in the New Mexico case.

This passage in the CNN story hurt my head. Just don’t do this dumb bullshit with negligible benefits. It’s basically just homeopathy but done by a guy in a white lab coat so it seems like a medical procedure. Even if it does somehow slow the aging process, is it worth getting stabbed in the face and maybe getting AIDS? I guess it’s slightly better than getting a facial from a Vampire: The Masquerade LARPer, but still.

You can save a lot of money and risk by just coming to me and getting my “punch in the crotch” beauty treatment. For just $200, I will punch you as hard as I can right in the babymaker to encourage the sexy atoms congregating there to spread throughout your body. For an extra $100, I’ll make it two punches and a kick to make sure everything is really moving.
