I haven’t even picked out my dress yet, and I’d better hurry because Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are tying the knot in just two weeks in Paris! The wedding invitations hit the Internet last night, but something’s a bit weird, don’t you think?
I mean, first of all, where in the hell IS the wedding? “Details upon arrival”… but where the hell am I arriving? This was obviously made for the sole purpose of putting it online and totally isn’t the real thing – I’m calling that now. Also, of course they wouldn’t want the general public to find out where they’re getting married – after all, can’t have the paparazzi taking the profits from E!, who will be filming and financing the whole thing.

I only sorta feel bad for taking the piss out of Kim Kardashian, who went on an anti-racism rant on her website yesterday. On the one hand, racism is a VERY real and very serious problem in our world, even in 2014. It should be fought, and everyone should be treated equally no matter who they are, what they look like, who they love, etc. On the other hand, Kim is a multi-millionaire who is shielded from so much of reality. Her ethnicity has rarely, if ever, been questioned due to the fact that she a) passes for “white” in the eyes of the world and b) is filthy fucking rich.
However, Kim is more concerned for the fate of her daughter, North, and how she will fare as a mixed-race child in a racist world. While I recognize that I have no place to comment on who does and doesn’t experience racism since I’m white as hell, I do think it’s fair to say that North will experience a lot of the same shielding as her mother does due to not only their celebrity but their wealth. Also, I’m just skeptical because it’s Kim Kardashian who makes a living off of being vapid, so… maybe I’m being overly harsh. I can accept that.
I never knew how much being a mom would change me. It’s amazing how one little person and the love I have for her has brought new meaning to every moment. What once seemed so important, now feels insignificant. It’s like I get to see the world for the first time again, but through someone else’s eyes. It’s a beautiful thing to feel and experience so much more, but with that beauty comes a flip side – seeing through my daughter’s eyes the side of life that isn’t always so pretty.
To be honest, before I had North, I never really gave racism or discrimination a lot of thought. It is obviously a topic that Kanye is passionate about, but I guess it was easier for me to believe that it was someone else’s battle. But recently, I’ve read and personally experienced some incidents that have sickened me and made me take notice. I realize that racism and discrimination are still alive, and just as hateful and deadly as they ever have been.
I feel a responsibility as a mother, a public figure, a human being, to do what I can to make sure that not only my child, but all children, don’t have to grow up in a world where they are judged by the color of their skin, or their gender, or their sexual orientation. I want my daughter growing up in a world where love for one another is the most important thing.
So the first step I’m taking is to stop pretending like this isn’t my issue or my problem, because it is, it’s everyone’s… because the California teenager who was harassed and killed by his classmates for being gay, the teenage blogger in Pakistan who was shot on her school bus for speaking out in favor of women’s rights, the boy in Florida who was wrongly accused of committing a crime and ultimately killed because of the color of his skin, they are all someone’s son and someone’s daughter and it is our responsibility to give them a voice and speak out for those who can’t and hopefully in the process, ensure that hate is something our children never have to see.
I’m not sure how she lived in the world WITHOUT realizing that racism was an issue… but that sorta proves my point. I’m glad that motherhood is giving her a bit of a conscience, but it’s a shame that it took 30-some years for it to happen. I still don’t think she’ll do much about it, but it’s nice to have moments of reflection, I suppose.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been planning a wedding to outdo all weddings in the history of weddings, presumably in Paris. However, after they got a secret marriage license in Los Angeles last week, everyone started speculating that they might hold a private ceremony before their big, made-for-TV version overseas.
Well, take this with a grain of salt, but apparently Kimye did indeed do just that, marrying in California a few days ago. According to Life & Style, at least…
“Kim and Kanye are now married on paper. They got their license in California over the past few days,” the source said. “Kim and North are on their way to NYC now.”
Well, that seems legit, “Source”! This probably is the case, though it’s not particularly a big deal as we all know this marriage is way more about the publicity aspect than it is about any long-lasting love (I give them 2 years max). But uh, congrats to the happy couple, I suppose!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are doing something that seems to go against their DNA … getting married PRIVATELY and without fanfare, and we’re told it’s going to happen this week.
Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ … they already have a marriage license and plan to tie the knot before the week is out.
We’re told it’s strictly on the QT … so much so they got a “confidential” marriage license so no one officially knows.
Sources tell us … with a confidential license, K&K won’t have to appear publicly at a courthouse to get married … instead, an official from the court will actually go to them and perform the ceremony privately in their home.
And then, in about a month — after they’re already legally married in California — we’ve learned Kim and Kanye will hold a lavish, blow-out wedding ceremony in Paris.
I wonder why they’re doing it this way though, especially if they’re planning a “lavish” ceremony in Paris anyway. What’s the rush and why so hush?

There have been so many stories in the press over the past year or two about how Beyoncé secretly hates Kim Kardashian and doesn’t approve of her even though Kim is obsessed with Bey and wants to be just like her… and so it continues. Apparently the two ran into one another at a dermatologist’s office in LA the other day, and Bey wasn’t feeling it but Kim was super stoked about seeing her new BFF and copied off of every procedure she got.
From Radar Online:
When Kardashian, 33, ran into Knowles, 32, at Dr. Harold Lancer‘s Beverly Hills office on April 11, “Kim wanted to make sure that she had the exact same procedures that Beyoncé had,” a source told Radar. “She requested Botox and fillers, which were the same treatments Beyoncé got.”
But rather than bonding over Botox, Jay Z’s wife and Kanye West’s fiancée had a seriously awkward run-in, as Radar has reported — even though Kardashian didn’t seem to notice!
Kardashian “seemed so excited to see Beyoncé and was really eagerly going over to her,” a source told Radar. “But Beyoncé looked like she wanted nothing to do with Kim and was really trying to stay away from her. Kim was basically fawning all over her … and Beyoncé looked like she could have cared less!”
LOL, okay. I love how hell-bent the press is on pitting these two against each other. Newsflash: some people – regardless of gender or affiliation – don’t get along. Or they do get along and they’re just not super close for whatever reason. It doesn’t mean there’s some rivalry or anything ill-willed. Nice try, though.

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”.
