Kim Says She’s Leaving ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians.’ If Only We Believed Her.
Knowing that thereâs pretty much nothing Kim Kardashian wonât do for a spotlight, we have a hard time believing her claims that she’s going to leave âKeeping Up With the Kardashiansâ after the ninth season and go off to live a more private life.
Yet in a recent interview with Dujour magazine, Kim âsays sheâs done.â So why the sudden change of attentionwhoring heart?
Seems Kanye West may have had something to do with it.
âMy boyfriend’s taught me a lot about privacy,” she said of her skirt-wearing baby daddy. “Iâm ready to be a little less open about some things, like my relationships. Iâm realizing everyone doesnât need to know everything. Iâm shifting my priorities.â
Buh? The same woman who (allegedly) peddled her own sex tape to get famous and then later got married in a sham wedding for TV ratings (again, allegedly) suddenly feels the need for privacy? You’ll excuse us if we’re skeptical. Flashbulbs are this chick’s version of oxygen.
The magazine confirmed our suspicions that we shouldnât believe her exit from ‘KUWTK’ until we see it by adding the caveat that, of course, she âdoesnât ensure longevity by being inflexible.â Meaning the expectant mother reserves the right to change her mind.
But hey, what a great way to boost ratings: convince fans this is their last chance to see their beloved queen before she vanishes into a pile of yesterday’s tabloids. Then, just when we think weâre rid of her, BOOM. Sheâs making âguest appearancesâ or starting another spinoff show: âKim & Kanye Take the Maternity Ward.â
There’s an old joke that says only cockroaches and Cher would survive a nuclear war. But we’re pretty sure you can add Kim Kardashian to that list.
