“I’m totally growing up. A lot of my friends, the people that I love to just sit and talk to and spend my time with, are wiser, a little bit older than me. Before I used to, you know, all my boyfriends were younger. I always dated five years younger. My whole thing was completely different … I love that I’m with someone who is a couple years older than me,” she says of West. “I love that my friends are even sometimes 20, 30 years older than me …Kourtney had this epiphany when she had the baby and she changed into a different person. I feel like I’ve had an epiphany over the last year for what I’ve been through, and I am that changed person just from my own experiences.”
Sigh. Doesn’t she say this kind of stuff every year? “Over the last year [I've completely changed]“? Because I swear, we hear this bit year in and year out. You’d think by now that Kim would be an ENTIRELY different person who’s selfless, thoughtful, charitable, honest, meek, modest, demure, and above all, likable.
Not, you know, still the complete opposite of all of those lovely words above.
Get this interview over with, Oprah, because I’ve just about had it on not being able to keep my breakfast down, OK? Damn.

I can’t tell you why I’m so excited for the legendary Oprah Winfrey to interview all of the Kardashians, but I really, really am. Maybe it’s because I want to hear Kim talk about the divorce. Maybe it’s because I’m excited to see the whole family together. Or maybe it’s because I like to pretend that Khloe is my best friend, and besties totally support besties. I don’t know.
Regardless of the reason, my excitement remains the same. Or it did, until I read new quotes from the interview. After that my excitement shot way up, as if that was even possible.
It’s no secret that Kris Jenner is very hands on when it comes to her kids’ careers.
But does the momager overdo it as a manager and forsake her role as a mom when doing business with the Kardashian kids? In an OWN special airing Sunday, Oprah Winfrey sat down with Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian Odom and Rob Kardashian and asked what they thought about claims their mom was “pimping her children.”
“I think that’s so ridiculous,” Kim said. “First of all, we have to hire a manager. So regardless, someone is going to get that [job].
“No one will fight harder for you than your own mother,” she added. “She knows us. She knows all of our moods…We just get each other. We vibe. It works.”
The OWN mogul then moved on to another touchy topic: Would the Kardashians would be running an empire and enjoying the success they have today if they weren’t “good-looking kids?”
“Well,” Rob started, pointing to his three older sisters. “They’re not, like, skinny women.” (Khloé, of course, put her little bro in check, asking, “Who are you?” and sarcastically telling him, “You’re so sweet.”)
“I mean in today’s society, yeah, to be honest, probably not,” Lamar Odom’s lovely wife answered. “You have to have this bombshell over here [Kim] and this petite little bundle of joy [Kourtney] and this hunk next to me [Rob].” (For the record, Khloé, you majorly factor into that gorgeousness equation!)
“But we are all different,” Kourtney added. “We have different body types.”
“But I don’t think [our success] would’ve happened if we were all like skinny, pretty models,” Kim reasoned. “I think it has to do with us, the curves, the dark hair!”
She also thinks that the sisters “helped broaden” the representation of Middle-Eastern women in mainstream media, giving them a niche role as they rose to fame.

From Us Weekly:
She’s hobnobbed with A-list actors and actresses and traveled worldwide as a result of her reality TV success, but nothing impressed Kim Kardashian more than an at-home sit-down chat with Oprah Winfrey.
“Ummmm no big deal Oprah just left my mom’s house! #DreamComeTrue,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 31, tweeted late Tuesday after she joined sisters Kourtney and Khloe, brother Rob, Scott Disick, Lamar Odom, and Kris, Kylie, Kendall and Bruce Jenner to film an interview segment for Oprah’s Next Chapter, airing Sunday on OWN.
Added pregnant Kourtney: “Surreal day being interviewed by the queen Oprah. Not many words to explain how incredible the experience was except for AHHH! Major moment.”
Winfrey, 58, was just as impressed with the reality TV family, whom she became acquainted with before the interview thanks to a “Kardashian Kram” session. “I had never met them, nor seen the show. I did a full on Kardashian Kram in preparation, watching major shows from every season,” Winfrey revealed on her Facebook page, posting a group photo taken during the interview.
What will talk show titan Winfrey address during the one-hour chat? “I genuinely wanted to know why they have become a cultural phenomenon, why so many people love to watch their every move and why so many others love to hate them,” she said. “Are they completely ego centered? Are they really ‘famous for being famous’ or is there something more?”
Winfrey told her Facebook fans she was most impressed with Disick, Odom, and Kim and Khloe’s responses to her queries. As for Kim’s justification of her 72-day marriage to NBA star Kris Humphries? Winfrey says the media mogul’s answer “leveled me.”
“Those of you who watch [Keeping Up With the Kardashians] know they hold nothing back. This interview I’d say was another level of forthrightness and honesty,” Winfrey hints.
Oh my god, is it Sunday yet? Because this interview will be phenomenal. What did Kim say about her divorce that could have “leveled” poor Oprah? If Oprah did a “Kardashian Kram” before the interview, then she knows all about how much this family overshares, so how could this possibly be “another level of forthrightness and honesty”?
Another interesting thing is that this is supposed to be the first interview with every single Kardashian present at the same time. There’s the brother, and the two little ones. Scott Disick and Lamar Odom are both there. It’s everybody. Is it going to be a clusterf-ck? Is everyone going to be polite and respectful? I DON’T KNOW, IT’S NOT SUNDAY YET.

“I don’t get the fact, like, why it’s talked about. I don’t get it. Sometimes I get bored of talking about it. Most women have one.”
So what is Kim Kardashian talking about here? What does she have that she talks about frequently and that she thinks most other women would have? A sex tape, perhaps? A throwaway marriage? An ego so big that if it were a physical part of her body it would dwarf her gigantic ass?
Close. It’s just her ass. She’s just talking about her ass. Specifically, she’s talking about how people talk about her ass, which is one of the reasons why people do, in fact, talk about her ass.
Another reason that people talk about it is because she wants them to talk about it. If she didn’t want any attention placed on her backside, then she wouldn’t shake it around so much. And don’t even tell me that with an ass that size, it’s impossible not to shake it around, because I won’t believe you for a second. If we’re going by the numbers, Kim has said that there’s a 13 inch difference between her waist and her hips. I have her beat by three inches (thanks for the genetics, Mom), and it’s really not an issue as long as you know how to dress for it.
Oh, and another reason why people talk about her ass? She gets x-rays taken of it and shows them on television. But god, why won’t everyone just shut up about it already?

Could you just kill yourself? Because I know I could, jeez. I know that they’ve been “thinking” about it for awhile, but it just needs to stop. All of this speculation needs to just end and they have to do it already or not do it at all. I’m hoping it’s the not doing it at all option, but hey. That’s just me. I’m not the type of person that feels compelled to stick my hand in the fire to know it burns. And a Kim Kardashian-Kanye West baby would burn. It would burn, burn, burn.
Make up your minds and go public with it, guys. All of this indecision is making my stomach hurt.

I know, you guys. I know. Two stories about the beautiful love of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in one day, that’s got to be a nauseating first, right? But listen, it’s Kanye’s birthday, and around these parts, we treat birthdays like the special days they are, and Kanye isn’t going to be excluded from that just because he’s a jackass.
But let’s think about this for a moment: if you were shopping for someone like Kanye West, what would you get him? He certainly has more than enough money to buy himself whatever he wants, so I’d probably go with something more sentimental, like a picture of us in a cute frame or something like that. I’d get him a sweet card too, and write something really meaningful in it. Then I’d take him to a nice dinner somewhere, or cook something for him. I find that when I have no idea at all what kind of gift to give someone, just generally making a big fuss works well.
Does Kanye’s loving girlfriend, Kim, think the same way as I do? Nope. Not at all. Not even a little bit. Because here’s what she decided to give Kanye:
It’s a Lamborghini, if you’re not familiar with excessively fancy cars. A Lamborghini that cost Kim about $750,000. Honestly.
Kanye’s on tour right now in Ireland, so he won’t be able to receive his gift just yet. The good news is that Kim is flying all the way to Ireland tonight to be with her man on the day he turns 35. And isn’t that the sweetest part of all?
