Kim Says She’s Leaving ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians.’ If Only We Believed Her.
Knowing that there’s pretty much nothing Kim Kardashian won’t do for a spotlight, we have a hard time believing her claims that she’s going to leave ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ after the ninth season and go off to live a more private life.
Yet in a recent interview with Dujour magazine, Kim “says she’s done.” So why the sudden change of attentionwhoring heart?
Seems Kanye West may have had something to do with it.
“My boyfriend’s taught me a lot about privacy,” she said of her skirt-wearing baby daddy. “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. I’m shifting my priorities.”
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 shouldn’t believe her exit from ‘KUWTK’ until we see it by adding the caveat that, of course, she “doesn’t ensure longevity by being inflexible.” 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 we’re rid of her, BOOM. She’s making “guest appearances” or starting another spinoff show: ‘Kim & Kanye Take the Maternity Ward.’
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.
