North West had a first birthday party she’ll never remember last weekend in the form of Kidchella, a Coachella-inspired free-for-all that was really more of an excuse for the adults to get wild than it was for the kids to have fun, but whatever. Rides were ridden, food was eaten and Khloe wore a Native American headdress which didn’t go over too well with the community.
From Page Six:
“Wow,” said Cliff Matias, cultural director of the Redhawk Native American Arts Council, upon seeing the images.
“There’s no way she’s not in tune with what’s been happening in the media,” Matias said, referring to the Redskins’ trademark cancellation. “I can’t even say she’s not even aware.”
Matias called the snapshot “insensitive” and says celebrities can no longer pretend they are ignorant on the issue. “It’s terrible,” insisted Matias. “It’s absolutely terrible that they have no conscience to discontinue to do such things.”
When asked if he’s offended when he sees celebrities disrespecting his culture for “art” or style, Matias replied, “Of course.”
“But it’s also sad. It’s really sad that people who are celebrities don’t take the responsibility and the understanding that they are trendsetters and they influence people, especially young people. It’s a responsibility that I don’t think a lot of them acknowledge that they have.”
He continued, “I just can’t believe she would be that insensitive to think it was OK to wear that war bonnet at a kids’ party … Now you have a celebrity at a kids’ party creating a whole new generation of insensitive thinking.”
This is somewhat of a tough one, because clearly Khloe didn’t sit down thinking, “Hmm, I think I’ll offend some Native Americans today”. HOWEVER, intention isn’t really the point. Perhaps the point is that she didn’t think at all and has that luxury, as she’s never been discriminated against in any way. Her ignorance is kind of the point, and the fact that people look up to her means that they will think ignorance is okay, yada yada.
The best thing that could happen here is that Khloe could realize the error of her ways, apologize and use the experience to learn from and be more thoughtful in the future. I wouldn’t hold my breath for that, though.

Growing up, I thought having my 8th birthday party at McDonald’s and playing in the ball pit was the SHIT and that I was living large. Turns out, that was nothing compared to the type of birthday parties North West, infamous 1-year-old daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, will be having. Despite being an infant who will never remember any of this, her parents threw her a “Kidchella”-themed shindig complete with carnival rides, food stands and Aunt Khloe in a controversial headdress (???).
From US Weekly:
In addition to the ferris wheel, there was a big bounce house for kids, as well as various food stands for lemonade, sno-cones, funnel cake, churros, and cotton candy.
“Kim was holding North a lot of the time, and the party seemed to be geared towards a little bit older kids,” an eyewitness tells Us Weekly. “But it was a family party with all ages, and no matter what age they were, they were having a great time. There was so much to do.”
Perhaps unsurprisingly, there are no actual photos of North West being at this party, so who knows if she even was? Either way, I think it’s pretty clear this was just an excuse for the adults to have fun rather than the kids. That’s okay, too, obviously – I love carnivals! – but why even bother to call it a birthday party?

Apparently Khloe Kardashian has been hitting the bottle since splitting from husband Lamar Odom and taking up with new boyfriend French Montana. Of course, she’s young and has probably always partied a bit, but it’s more of a story now since we love to paint women as emotional wrecks who go off the rails once they go through a break-up.
Paint us a picture, Radar Online!
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star “refuses to stop drinking and still binge drinks once in a while behind closed doors,” one Kardashian insider told Radar.
Strangely, the worry over Kardashian’s boozing comes as the 29-year-old reality star has never looked better after her split from husband Lamar Odom, the source said. She’s been dating a new boyfriend, rapper French Montana, and exercising constantly.
But according to the source, “Khloe has a passion for alcohol that has not abated one bit since she became a fitness nut! Khloe works out twice a day every single day now, and she is way into it.
“She’s managing her drinking and heavy workout schedule fine so far, but people on her team want her to quit one or the other, because it can’t be healthy for her in the long run,” revealed the source.
Right, so there you have it. Khloe Kardashian likes a drink so now she’s on a slippery slope. And who knows, maybe she is… but this seems like someone is making a mountain out of a molehill and homegirl needs to be left alone. (Yes, I’m actually sticking up for a Kardashian, but y’all know Khloe has always been my fav!)

Khloe Kardashian got rid of Lamar Odom late last year, so it was only a matter of time before she moved on to the next one. While she was linked to rapper Game for a while, turns out, she’s actually with another member of the hip hop community – French Montana.
US Weekly has the scoop:
The reality star and the CEO of Cocaine City Records, both 29, grabbed a slice of pizza at Star Gourmet & Deli in NYC after he hosted a party at Allstar Night Club in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Following the event, they attended an after party at Greenhouse where Khloe supported her new beau. Cops shut down the party at 2:45 a.m., after the duo drank shots of CIROC together.
The couple was spotted on April 19 at the Lobster House for lunch, sitting by the water. Khloe was laughing while eating a salad and French fries. Though they have gone public now, the pair kept their PDA to a minimum. The “I Luh Ya Papi” rapper kept his hand on Khloe’s back while they walked to their table, but they weren’t spotted kissing or holding hands.
French Montana, whose real name is Karim Kharbouch, has 4-year-old son Kruz with his estranged wife Deen Kharbouch. Now he’s moving forward with Kardashian.
“They’ve been hooking up for months,” one insider told Us. But that doesn’t mean everyone approves. Khloe’s mother Kris Jenner “thinks French is bad for Khloe,” an insider told Us.
Huh. Well, I suppose he’s better for her than someone who smokes crack and raps about cheating on her, eh, Kris?

Ooookay, wait just a rootin’ tootin’ second here. Kris Jenner claims that there’s some band of “pranksters” out there who are purposely planting false information about the Kardashian/Jenner clan in the media in an effort to sabotage the family, apparently. If that’s not self-righteous enough for you, she thinks it’s someone in that prankster group that started the whole Kris Jenner sex tape “rumour”, as well.
Sources close to Kris tell us, the matriarch is convinced she and the rest of the Kardashian family are the victims in an elaborate prank plot — and she believes the people behind it are the same people who spread rumors she was in a sex tape.
We’re told the group is responsible for a string of pranks against the family — planting bogus stories about the sex tape, Kris dating a rapper, Kim’s wedding, Rob Kardashian in rehab, and more.
Even crazier … Kris believes one of the pranksters has been impersonating her to a tee, booking fake photoshoots and fancy restaurant reservations around the country.
We’re told the group booked a Kardashian reservation at every Nobu in America last week — and Kris only found out when her phone rang off the hook with requests to confirm. We’re told Kris has now given her favorite restaurants code words to verify Kardashian reservations from here out.
I mean… I guess it’s possible or something? I know people have a lot of spare time on their hands and do stupid shit, but creating fake restaurant reservations? What would be the point, honestly? Also, in re: the sex tape, she wouldn’t have been so worked up about it/continued talking about it if it didn’t exist. How can someone blackmail you over something they don’t have? Think about it, Kris – you’re your own worst “prankster”.

Well, there’s a whole new illness on the block, and this one is particularly hilarious/strange/bizarrely fitting. Apparently retail assistant Mike Amess has a severe phobia of the entire Kardashian family to the point of becoming ill whenever he so much as sees a picture of them. HAHAHA! Here’s the scoop from The Daily Mail (PLEASE read the whole thing – this is so hilarious):
He breaks out in a cold sweat whenever he sees or hears the famous family and says the sight of a semi-naked Kim even makes him vomit with disgust.
The 24-year-old from Exeter explains, ‘Just hearing the sound of the Kardashians’ nasal voices or catching a glimpse of them on screen makes me feel nauseous and shaky. My hands get clammy, my breathing gets heavier and I start sweating. Sometimes, I get teary and want to retch.’
Apparently this phobia started with having watched Kim‘s sex tape, which “repulsed” him – and not just because he’s gay.
‘I really wanted to be aroused by her so I kept watching it but she made me feel more and more upset. By the end of the tape, I had burst into tears. The experience left me terrified and I never wanted to see Kim’s face again. I have come to terms with my homosexuality now but my dread towards her has never left.’Mike says that his phobia has got worse since Kim’s fame skyrocketed and his fear now extends to the whole Kardashian family.
He explains, ‘Kim and her sisters look and sound so similar – they’re a mess. They make my stomach churn, I hate it. I dislike everything about them, especially their physical appearance. I don’t understand how anyone could find them attractive. I can’t stand their voices either. They’re so whiny and shrill – it really gets under my skin.’
LOL. He’s also really upset because he “misses out” on important celebrity gossip because he’s afraid he’ll have to see a picture of one of the Kardashians and he’ll throw up again, the way he did when he saw the ‘Bound 2′ video for the first time:
He says, ‘One day, I was lazing about on the sofa in front of the TV. I was skipping through music channels and that video came on.
Seeing Kim naked, with her boobs bouncing about like that brought back memories of that horrendous sex tape. It was like reliving that incident all over again.
‘Before I knew it, I was sweating like a pig and throwing up. When I hear ‘Bound 2′ on the radio now, I have to switch the station immediately.’
I just can’t with this guy. Also, he blames his single status on the Kardashians and even had to break-up with a former boyfriend because of his fear. Like, WHAT? Oh, and he can’t seek doctor’s help because he knows he’d get laughed out of the office. This is the best story (and the most full of bullshit story) EVER. Also, how great is it that his last name is “Amess”? He can say that shit again.
