By now we all or most of us anyway, have seen Kim Kardashian’s spread in Paper magazine. And it is raising uncomfortable questions. Why is Kardashian doing this? Oh sure, people joke about her infamous sex-tape and the years more than 15 minutes of fame it has led to. But over the years she has fought to put the negativity behind her and regroup. She grew up and matured into a respectable wife and mother.

Is it money? Well someone once said, “You can never be too rich or too thin.” None of us know what’s going on with the finances of Mr. and Mrs. Kanye West. However, it is probably safe to say that they are both earning at least a few cents over the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. With a two-family income, they are presumably able to care for their daughter North without having to go on government assistance at this particular time.

Is it fame? I don’t know. It could be, but that doesn’t seem to be a feasible reason either. The magazine claimed that with these photos, they were going to try to “break the internet”. They wouldn’t assume that was going to happen if the pictures had featured Sally Sue from around the corner. So obviously the Kim Kardashian name is already well known.

Is it a cry to be noticed by her husband? I believe this is the most likely. Both Kardashian and West are busy people. But West is super busy. Not only is he a rap star, but he also frequently travels back and forth to Europe, meeting with various designers in his bid to be a fashion mogul. Try as she might to keep up, and she seems to go with him a lot, there are just sometimes mommy has to stay home with the baby; for example, if the child is too sick to travel.

Sometimes a husband’s devotion to business can appear to be a lack of caring. Not as egregious as cheating, mind you, but many women want their spouse’s time and emotional attention more than anything. Sometimes a woman will not step out to another person, but will act out in ways that will make the spouse angry. They feel like any attention is better than no attention. That’s my bet. No matter that it is the year 2014, and women do what they want.

I think Kardashian proposed to do something so ridiculous (I mean come on, full frontal nudity that all of his friends will see) that Kanye would say, “Baby don’t do it. I love and adore you far too much for the world to see the intimacies that should be shared between us only in love.” Apparently, and sadly, that didn’t happen, because she went forward the photo shoot. Not a good family look.

Do you agree dear readers? What are your thoughts or concerns?

Kourtney Kardashian, 35, and her children’s father Scott Disick, 31, are officially statistics.  US Weekly is reporting today that the eldest Kardashian sibling is pregnant with her third child.  Kourtney and Disick are not married, although maybe her sister Kim Kardashian West’s recent nuptials with Kanye West will start her to thinking along those lines.

This was no teenaged “oops”.  Kardashian has always made it known that she wants a lot of children.  She knows what it takes to get them and this pregnancy was planned.  Where she differs from many is that she is showing no interest in making it a priority to bring her children into the world under the covering a covenant marriage household.  Not every marriage lasts till death does the couple part.  Some shatter in divorce long before the silver anniversary.

But Kardashian is travelling down a parental path that is seemingly widening day by day.   (Continue reading full story here.)

Kanye Takes A Chance On Love

October 25, 2013

What a difference eight years can make. In 2005 rapper Kanye West soared to the number one spot on the Billboard chart with an infectious little ditty called “Gold Digger”. Kanye rapped about a woman who was always wearing the most fashionable clothes, being seen at all the “in” places and ruthlessly leaving one man for the next spurred by the size of their bank accounts. During the song Kanye urgently warns his listeners “If you ain’t no punk holla we want prenup. WE WANT PRENUP! Yeah”.

Fast forward to Monday, October 21, 2013. Kanye West rented out the San Francisco Giants’ stadium and proposed to Kim Kardashian in grand fashion, complete with a 15 carat sparkler to seal the deal. The proposal was especially touching because that was Kim’s birthday. Now many late night comedians back in the day joked that young party women of the Kim type (although not her specifically) were the basis of Kanye’s song.

Kim was catapulted into the limelight when a sex tape of her with R&B singer Ray J was leaked to the public. She had a media-spotlighted relationship with NFL star Reggie Bush, and a 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries. Like the song says she doesn’t mess with broke or struggling. In light of her track record, there was a flurry of fan disbelief and backlash when Kanye West announced that there would be no prenup.

Let’s give love a chance. This is Kanye’s first marriage and Kim’s third. He is stepping up to the plate and doing the right thing by putting a ring on the mother of their child. This might even be an example to the ever fruitful and multiplying Kourtney and Scott.

Kim and Kanye have named their baby North West, but that’s a story for another day. Suffice it to say she probably won’t have to fill out too many 9-5 job applications where human resources personnel might question her name. Kanye said he loves Kim and she has enough money so that she doesn’t have to ask him for anything; and because of that he wants to give her everything. You can’t argue with that. Congratulations to the happy couple.
