A socialite at heart, Kim burst onto the scene following the release of her naughty video, which also featured her then-boyfriend, Ray J. From that point on, her very private video thrust her into scandal-loving homes around the globe. She’s startred in reality TV shows, flaunted her famous curves, married and then split after 72 days, and she is currently carrying a baby fathered by Kanye West.

The stepmother diaries
Robert Kardashian’s former wife, Ellen Kardashian, has been making headlines recently over claims that the Kardashian girls were abused as children. The famous siblings have fought back with a denial of all claims, but now Ellen is telling the world there are secret diaries to prove she is telling the truth. Ellen says there is written proof that Kris repeatedly beat the girls when they were growing up.
Is Ellen trying to grab 15 minutes of fame from the famous family? Why would she come forward with this information now? Only time will tell how this drama will play out, but for now, we’ll sit back and enjoy the show.
A natural remedy
Kim Kardashian has been affected with psoriasis for several years now, and there are many different treatments available for the skin condition. On the latest episode of ‘Kim & Kourtney Take Miami’, Kim needed a quick application for her condition – some of Kourtney’s breast milk.
Yes, viewers saw Kim steal some of her sister’s breast milk and apply it to her leg.
Kim’s not making this stuff up, breast milk has long been thought of as a natural remedy for a variety of conditions. We’re not sure we’d use it, but she is certainly not the first person to try it.
Kim’s new bling
What do you give the mother of your unborn child when she already has fame and fortune? Gold, of course.
Kim is sporting some very expensive bling from her boyfriend, Kanye West. Kanye reportedly dropped over $65K on some new Cartier jewelry for her. Some of the super-expensive pieces include a Panthere bracelet embedded with diamonds, a gold love bracelet and some assorted animal print bracelets.
Kim showed off her new bling in this photo she posted on Instagram. Lookin’ good, Kim!
Kim wants this whole marriage thing to Kris Humphries over and done with. She reportedly offered Kris $10 million to speed up the process last week, which he refused. Kris wants the marriage annulled because he feels it was a fraud.
In California, when a woman gives birth, it is assumed her husband is the legal father of the child. The rumor mills are buzzing about Kim and Kanye wanting to get hitched before the baby arrives, and Kris is really putting a damper on things. We’re sure the marriage will end eventually, but until it does, we will enjoy the outrageous money offers and scandal surrounding the ill-fated vows.
The Kardashians are no strangers to the latest trends in Hollywood. Unfortunately, they fell victim to a growing trend no star wants to be on the receiving end of.
Police were called to the Kardashian home on January 18 following a call claiming shots were fired inside the home. A SWAT team arrived to find nothing of interest happening. Bruce Jenner later posted a photo on Instagram of himself and the officers who arrived on the scene.
The Kardashians are the latest in a long line of stars who were swatted recently. Justin Bieber, Tom Cruise and Ashton Kutcher have all had a SWAT team deployed to their homes after phony calls were made.
Kim later hit Twitter to tell her fans swatting is no joke.
Let’s have a talk
Kim’s momger, Kris Jenner, has thrust herself into the headlines once again. TV viewers will be seeing a lot more of Kris than they may have planned, she has just inked a deal to star in her very own talk show on Fox.
We can imagine the topics she will cover: Unwed mothers, quick marriages, plastic surgery and parenting tips.
There’s no news on whether or not any of the famous Kardashian children will be guests on the new talk show, but it would certainly boost ratings for Kris.
The bump watch
Oh, Kim. We love seeing you flaunt your curves in every way you possibly can. Now that you are getting a little further along in your pregnancy, we’re seeing less and less of those famous curves and more fashions that let your baby bump grow freely.
Here’s Kim and Kanye on January 25, with little Kimye nestled under her roomy and feathery dress. Kim posted this photo on Instagram to show her fans how truly happy she is.
Sisters under fire
Jill Zarin of ‘Real Housewives of NY’ fame has publicly blasted both Kim and Kourtney this week for getting pregnant before marriage. Jill feels the girls have a lot of power and influence over younger fans, and they should act as better role models.
In Kim’s defense, she might marry Kanye before the baby arrives. If she can divorce her current husband first.
