The point of this story is that Kim Kardashian is retiring from reality TV in its various incarnations – Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, Get the Kardashians Off My F-cking TV Already, etc. After five years, she wants to use being knocked up as a turning point and stop living her life in front of the camera… but only because Kanye West pointed out the concept of “privacy” to her.
From to DuJour magazine:
“My boyfriend has taught me a lot about privacy. I’m ready to be a little less open about some things, like my relationships. I’m realizing everyone doesn’t need to know everything.”
“When you live your life so publicly, like on a reality show, people assume that they know every side of you already,” she adds. “But they always want more.”
Not only does everyone not need to know everything, we also don’t want to. I can count on zero hands how many people I know who actually give a shit about the Kardashians and what they’re doing in life. I’ll “watch” (read: zone out to) one of their shows if they’re on, but I never absorb any information, most likely because there’s none to absorb. They’re a family with too much money and not enough brains, but they’ve learned how to turn that into even more money, so good for them.
In any case, how hilarious that Kanye is responsible for telling Kim to cool it with sharing her entire life with the general public, and that it never occurred to her before now. I suppose it’s never too late for a little common sense, and lucky for us, the Kardashians’ various TV shows probably won’t last much longer once Kim goes. Every cloud has a silver lining, people.
