It seems that several sources, including the NY Daily News, are reporting that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are expecting another baby. Unconfirmed rumor has it that the couple may even be expecting twins. And honestly, if it is true, most of us have to admit to a bit of surprise at this growing family.

 
They always seemed like an unlikely pair even when they were just dating. He just seemed so hyper and manic, given to outbursts at the most inappropriate times. And she appeared to be a groupie whose fame was predicated on homemade videos of the impolite kind. But lo and behold, they met and fell in love, and by all accounts seem to be loving and wonderful parents to their baby girl named after compass points. Well her daddy’s last name is West, so an argument could be made for giving her the first name North.

 
So though I may have been a little skeptical at the beginning, I must say I am really starting to enjoy watching this family expand. And I’ll tell you why, although I’m sure it won’t be popular in this age of everything goes. The fact is I love that Kim is having all these kids with her…wait for it…husband. What a novel concept right?

 
I actually stopped watching “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” because it seemed like almost every nine months we were force fed a pregnant Kourtney happily counting up reasons not to get married, but, instead, to keep procreating. Not the best message to be sending out to the impressionable young ladies watching the show. But now with the Wests doing their own thing, I think they might have a viable chance at a spinoff. I would definitely watch. Life is so funny, huh? What with the Daddy Jenner news, who would have thought Kanye and Kim would be some of the more traditional members of the family? You just never know.

Kim K’s desperate ploy for Kanye’s affection

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?

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.

 

Kim Kardashian…Heartbreak Or Scam?

November 12, 2011

By now we’ve all heard about the demise of the marriage of Chris Humphries and Kim Kardashian.  But what is a little surprising to me is that some media outlets are implying that the whole thing might have been a scam.  Many are saying that Kim orchestrated the whole thing in order to have a huge wedding celebration as a ploy to continue garnering hefty ratings for her family’s reality show.    She has been accused of using her wedding to attract sponsors to pay for every flower, napkin and decoration in return for their names being featured on the wedding show.  They say she got married for any reason you can think of, with the exception of true love.  Well I believe there’s a possibility that Kim may be getting a bad rap. continue reading more
