I don’t understand the cultural obsession with Kanye West’s narcissism. The majority of great musicians — heck, the majority of great artists in every medium — are narcissists. All that really matters is that Kanye West is a narcissist who makes great music. And given that reality TV is a genre built on exhibitionist narcissism, I’ve been waiting with desperate glee for Kanye to arrive on this season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. As you probably know, Kanye agreed to be a plotline on this season of Kardashians when he started dating Kim. Last night, Kourtney asked Kim point blank if they were dating. READ FULL STORY

After keeping mum for several months, Kim Kardashian is finally disclosing the details of her ”fairy tale” relationship with Kanye West. During the second of the two-part interview on Oprah’s Next Chapter — airing this Sunday on OWN — Kim said she’s in a ”happy, good space.”
Despite the impression of a whirlwind romance, Kim said she’s known Kanye for a ”really long time”: They met almost a decade ago and have been friends for six or seven years. ”It’s very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you, that respects you, understands, has gone through the similar things,” Kim told Oprah.
All the main Kardashians were on Oprah’s Next Chapter last night, and while the group is on hours and hours of E!, the family really didn’t have enough to say to fill a whole hour-long chat.
In one segment, Kim — because she’s serious — wore a tan dress and natural-ish makeup to explain to Oprah how she’s “totally growing up” since her disastrous marriage. She spoke about how she now surrounds herself with older people, and coyly smiled when asked about whether Kanye West is “the new fairy tale.”

You heard it here first, PopWatchers: Immaculate conception is the new black. On last night’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian revived an old trend by confessing to friends that she is leaning toward artificial insemination if she isn’t pregnant by 40. It was a fair enough statement — until Kim added, “I would feel like Mary — like Jesus is my baby, you know?”
Okay, Kim. It’s real-talk time. Very few things are certain in this world, but I am quite sure that any of us with at least a dial-up connection can confirm that you are no candidate for a virgin birth. Then again, as they say, “From the mouths of babes….” Watch below. READ FULL STORY
Stretching even their own sky-high allowance for TMI, members of the “First Family of Reality TV” — sisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloé — made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, where talk immediately turned to Kourtney’s pregnancy. (She’s expecting her second child with boyfriend Scott Disick).
The sisters reminisced about Kourtney’s first delivery, and Khloé announced a fact I could have gone my whole life without knowing: Kourtney pulled her own baby out of herself with her own hands. The trio also talked about hiding in closets and breaking delivery room procedures.
Kimmel’s best joke came when they were all discussing why Kourtney and Scott weren’t yet married. “Why don’t you try [marriage] for a little while, like Kim did?” he asked to laughs.
Naturally, this turned the conversation to Kim and Kanye, and we learned who to blame the worlds-colliding atrocity known as “Kimye” on: Jimmy Kimmel, who wanted the credit most of us would run from.
Watch the sisters keep up with each other below: READ FULL STORY
Rob Kardashian has a dream. He doesn’t just want to make socks. He wants to change the way we think about socks. In last night’s episode of Kooling Off With the Kardashians, Rob returned to Los Angeles after a month of scouting out manufacturers in England, which as we all know is the home of many of the world’s great sock factories. Now, this is just a hypothesis based on extensive research, but I assume that Rob™ Brand Socks all come in different shades of neon. They’re emblazoned with conflict diamonds and Yukon gold dust and melted Rhino horn and crushed shark-fin. The best odor engineers in Orkney designed the socks with a heat-activated Beluga Caviar scent.
And there is a Shepard Fairey portrait of Rob’s face on top of every sock. So, when you put your feet up on your footrest at the end of a busy day, twin Rob Kardashians smile at you. It’s almost like they’re saying: “Yo, bro, I’m Rob Kardashian, and I approve of these socks.” Except Rob Kardashian doesn’t even call his socks “socks.” They’re more like foot-gloves, or toe-scarves, or shin-bling. Listen, I don’t think it’s hyperbole to say that Rob Kardashian is the last American dreamer. And like all true Americans, he wants his mom to help him buy a house. READ FULL STORY
Last night’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians featured an exclusive preview of Snow White and the Huntsman, which is a movie about a very attractive but slightly older lady who is plotting the demise of an equally attractive but much younger lady, and also Hemsworth. I submit to you, my fellow viewers, that a very similar plotline is playing out on this season of Kardashians. At the top of the hour, we saw dear old Kim hanging out with her young half-sisters Kendall and Kylie. The two girls were having so much fun jumping on Kim’s bed and rolling around Kim’s house. They were young, they were full of life. They were everything Kim used to be. How she loathed them! But she was a pure diplomat for the cameras. “Kendall and Kylie and I have… gotten… closer,” she said, sounding like a sniper who has finally found a good vantage point, or a Roman senator preparing to shake Julius Caesar’s hand. “I just love hanging out with my sisters,” she said, not at all lovingly.
The Jenner girls dominated the episode. You see, after many years of hard work, they finally got a long-overdue promotion. They’ve been named West Coast Fashion Contributors for Seventeen Magazine. Kylie was so proud. She showed Kim her business cards. “Look at the cards we got. They’re so profesh.” Kim regarded the business card. The subtle off-white coloring. The tasteful thickness of it. Oh my God, it even had a watermark! Kim was horrified. She had been dreaming of the West Coast Fashion Contributor job for years. And yet, all she had to show for her vast literary ambitions was a brief stint as the Tehran correspondent for The Economist. And here was little Kylie, who is like 12 years old. READ FULL STORY
The seventh season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians kicked off with a raucous family gathering at the Jenner palace. Khloe was visiting from Texas. Kourtney was visiting from Mars. Kim was visiting from the land where people still care about her divorce from Basketball Frankenstein. When dinner was over, Kim hugged Khloe goodbye. Then Kris hugged them both. “I don’t want you to leave!” she said. Kris wouldn’t let go. She looked so happy, and her daughters looked so scared. If you could have seen thought bubbles coming out of Kris Jenner’s head at that moment, one bubble would have said “I’m a good mom, good mom, good mom!” and the other bubble would have said “Hug centipede, wheee!“
Listen, I don’t like to judge anyone’s parenting methods. I don’t have children, and when I do, I plan to hire a penguin butler to take care of them until they get old enough to work the salt mines. But even if Kris Jenner is not the worst mother in the history of humanity, we can all agree that her puppet-master relationship with her children is becoming more Shakespearean every year. The main plot of the premiere focused on the popular tabloid rumor that Khloe Kardashian is the product of an affair. These rumors had been haunting Kris ever since she wrote a memoir that specifically stoked those rumors. READ FULL STORY
