Madame, are you like 90 years old? I don't seek any Kartrashian info, yet like osmosis it enters me.
I realize that KK is a media hound, but maybe she really did want a baby and felt the clock ticking. And Whitney - why does it matter that you think KK would be a better mom that "Say Paris Hilton"? There are plenty of babies/mothers to worry about that are in your community, the celebs will have lots of help because they can afford it, there are many kids at risk whose parents do not have help.
I heard about it on the CNN. I hate the world we live in, just for the record.
Remember when you'd lay awake at night until like 3am trying to remember things like just what the heck was John Boy's name in real life? And then you'd sit up and gasp and shout out "THAT'S IT!" when the file from the offsite storage in your brain was retrieved and then finally, FINALLY you could settle yourself down and go to sleep.
This thread has become more serious than I thought it would. I'm not sure what you meant by your response to me but I never said my opinion mattered or was important, I doubt Kim is losing sleep over what I or anyone else thinks of her. Kim, like Paris, are people who have chosen to live every moment of their lives in the public eye, and when you do that, people are going to comment. And because of my job, I am more than aware of the troubled families in my community.
As for celebrity news. You really don't have to seek it out anymore. This was a banner headline on USA Today, it was also on CNN.
Yeah, it's a bit difficult to escape celebrity gossip when you read the news at all, because it's so pervasive. I just choose to mostly ignore it. It's no skin off my back.
I think their kid will turn out fine, regardless of the parents being possibly the two most egocentric people on the planet. They're not known for drug abuse (which is probably the biggest danger of being rich and famous), so with the swimming pools of money in between them, their child will be all right, more or less. It is what it is.
Jon Bon Jovi's daughter has a bit of a heroin problem and he married his high school sweetheart. Just sayin'.
It is normal for women Kim's age to have babies, so I don't see the big deal. The baby is blameless, and is Kim K really that bad, say like Courtney Love bad? I agree she seems vapid, and I couldn't get through more than 15 minutes of her show, but she doesn't seem like such a truly horrible person who would only procreate for attention. Who knows, maybe the baby will help her mature.
I feel so sorry for this little one and any little ones who are conceived either because their DNA providers think a baby will just magically change their lives like your co worker does or in a sad last chance to save a marriage that's a long ago lost cause. Not only does it never work, but then the little one usually ends up either being neglected or blamed for "not fixing the problem" or both in some sad way. Also for the Mom to be who actually thinks this is a good idea.
Just sad all around.
As far as the newest Kardashian baby news goes....I think my favourite comment came from the thread over at The Royal Forums earlier today...
Had to chuckle at that one.
Sure, it can still happen. Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston's daughter never had a chance, though.
Is she hanging out with Jack Klugman? I thought she was still on our side of the playing field.
No she is, but there's evidence that she's been abusing drugs too. It's hard to get out of a culture if both your parents were deep in it themselves.
It may not be an easy feat to reject her family's programming, but it's her choice to be walking that path. Frances Bean doesn't seem to have much trouble telling her wacky mother to pound salt.
Not to mention that Kanye has tons of his own $$$. So if Mama Kris thinks she can force him to comply with her $$$-making plans (like she allegedly did
with Kris Humphries) then she might be in for a big surprise.
All internet threads containing celebrity gossip are unable to conclude until at least three people have entered said thread for the purpose of opining that they're superior because they don't pay any attention whatsoever to pop culture.
I just hope It was explained to Kim that this is longer than 72 day commitment and that she is forever tied to Kayne.
This is the first thing that came to mind when I heard the news. Does art imitate life? You tell me......
His mother is spinning in her grave.
Oh....and I think it's best that Kanye can't marry KK now. He just doesn't know it yet.
The best thing about all of this is that Kanye has a big mouth, especially after he hits the Hennessy. Instead of worrying about Kris Humphries telling secrets, they better start worrying about Kanye.
I guess I'm being dense but I don't get your point. Are you saying Kanye is too good for her or is superior in some way? yarite.
I would never say that someone is too good for someone else. But I will say that I do not think that she is for him. I would love to be wrong because he seems to be terribly smitten. But she has reputation of being flighty and opportunistic.
Rex, where are you?
You KNOW he's not one to gossip.
I bet their momnager is already busy contacting rag magazines for exclusive rights to the baby's first photos. It's not bad being born into wealth though.
Er, Kanye is definitely wealthier than Kim, but Kim's net worth is supposedly something like 40 million dollars. I realize that a person can always want more, but if that's the case, I'd say she's looking for more of a profitable partnership than a meal ticket.
He's a talented artist, but that doesn't necessarily translate to wanting an equally talented partner. Kanye hasn't had exactly brainy girlfriends in the past.
Yup. She wants more fame, not money.
What she seeks is celebrity.....fame + fortune....i.e. a specific kind of lifestyle. And you can't have too much of either.
I see her as more famous than him, and I think HE'S the one seeking fame/wider audience.
I think she just wants them to be like Jay-Z and Beyonce. She probably envisions herself a career woman, and despairs of finding a man who will be supportive of her ambitions.
Of course you know there will be problems between Momager and Kanye.
And I can't believe I know this, but I do feel bad for Khloe who's been trying for a baby for years.
If her mother pays attention on her pregnancy - the 3D sonogram will go live on E! and the birth will be televised globally.
There was a rumor in one of those rags that Kim wanted to be best friends with Beyonce, and thought she would be since Kanye and Jay-Z are so close , but Beyonce pretty much shut that dream down.
Where on earth do you get this stuff? Among other assumptions above, I don't think I've ever started a thread about a celebrity on FSU, and certainly not one that doesn't interest me; the only celebrities I follow on Facebook are Jamie Oliver and Jann Arden, and I do not tweet.
Just because you and some others would never have heard about this without FSU doesn't mean it's not out there - as others have noted, they've seen it on multiple mainstream news sources, whether they sought it out, or whether it was just around them as they go about their business on the internet, at the grocery store, flipping by news channels, or even, as I mentioned in another thread, in a elevator.
Sorry to hear about coworker and can't believe this is still going on in today's day and age. Also, still see women getting married to someone who isn't the one just so they can be married (while it lasts) and have kids.
Back to Kim, I feel sorry in a way for her married sis (hope they consider adoption soon. I wonder if there are birthmoms trying to contact them). Can't believe I am thinking this because I do kind of agree with doing away with some of these conventions that hold women down, or shame them while praising same behaviors from men, but it seems
Kim is a married woman who is now pregnant with another man's baby. I don't know if Kanye lives up to the so called rapper's rep with the ladies, but I sure hope not. I do wish her health and happiness but why the rush to get knocked up while she is still married? I didn't read the USA today article so maybe it was in there. Maybe if she was like 45 and it was kind of do or die time and the baby daddy was also older and wanting a family then it'd be a bit more understandable that this may go on at the very end stages of signing divorce paperwork.
I worry about the effects that these "Reality" shows are having on people who think this is all 100% actual and the way to be.
If you follow Honey Boo Boo there are pics now out on the web of her ice skating if anyone wants to search them. I wish she and anyone in that family would take lessons if they are interested.
Oh, I thought you started this one. My bad.
Anyway, I was at the grocery store yesterday so I made myself look at the gossip rags... nothing on Kim or her baby news but apparently Bethany Frankel is getting a divorce?
This made me realize that I don't look at them any more and when I do they seem to mostly be about reality tv stars whose shows I never watch so I have no idea who they are (and don't care enough to find out). I used to read the covers in line at the grocery to "keep up with popular culture" and so I would probably be saying that you can't avoid this kind of news because of that, but I've realized that just isn't true. The last couple of times I went to the dentist, they took me back before I could find a People, I didn't even try to read anything when I last got my haircut because I was playing solitaire on my iPhone and I don't watch the evening news much any more because I don't think it's very informative. Oh and I don't go to Yahoo! either.
I've realized that people pay attention to what interests them. If something doesn't interest you, it's very easy to avoid the subject, I've found. You can't totally avoid it but I'm mystified by the idea that this sort of news is "everywhere". Obviously, it's out there because I now know about it even though I don't care but I've found I've missed quite a bit of news that supposedly is "everywhere" over the years and I frequently run into people who are even less tapped in than I am.
I first saw this news at NBC's news site when checking the national news. It was a headline on the main page in the top corner right across from updates on the Congressional "fiscal cliff" negotiations. All you have to do to be aware of this kind of non-news is click on the web to read real news and it is in your face. It also appeared pretty prominently on CNN's U.S. home page the day it broke. Both sites people likely open to read more "serious" news.
Is it a bad thing to know that Kim Kardashian is pregnant?
I realize that it isn't news in the sense that, say, the fiscal cliff is. And I can see thinking "Who cares?" But I don't get why it is such an issue with people that this is in the news at all. A lot of people clearly find such things interesting and they want to know about it, which makes it news. I can see thinking that it isn't "news," but so what? There is tons of news produced every single day and most people pass right over most of it. I don't get thinking that this is shoved in people's faces any more than any other kind of news is. Most things in the news just slide right on by unless you make it a point to find out about it.
I get most of my celebrity gossip here. I found out about the pregnancy here. I told my husband; he didn't know either until then. But at some point, both of us would have become aware of it without FSU, one way or another. But why is this such a problem? If it doesn't interest you, put it out of your mind and go on with life, just as you do with anything else in the news that you don't pay any attention to.
I'm with MacMadame. If you are interested enough to open a thread about the topic and read that thread, then I think you are interested in the topic. It always amazes me how much some posters here know about people whom they clearly despise and claim to have little interest in. They blame it on the media for "shoving it in our faces," but it's not all that hard to say "No, thanks" and move on. If it were hard to do, people would know more about things like the fiscal cliff, which is something that most people don't understand even though there has been a lot more news about that than about Kim Kardashian.
yep: pregnancy easy to understand. Man/Woman have sex. Sperm/egg find each other, ta-da baby. Long term effects - for your lifetime
fiscal cliff: how we got here, why we got here, what could prevent it , what long term effects - no easy answers to the who, what ,when, where and how questions
Right. You can read the headline and get the whole story on this. On NBC it was "Kim Kardashian and Kanye West expecting a baby". Nothing more is required. That tends to be true of lots of entertainment news. "Movie A wins box office with ___ million". End of story. Whereas the fiscal cliff headlines cannot explain everything in five to ten words.
Google News headline: http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20660656,00.html (dang, "link" button isn't working for me; sorry). Kim's brother Rob says "I'll wait for marriage before baby." But Rob, she *is* married. . . just not to the father of her child :run:
I don't know CA law, but if she's still married to Kris H. when the baby is born, he may legally be presumed the father. Not sure if that holds if they put Kanye on the birth certificate.
Khris may indeed be responsible for the baby's financial future.
Kim should have gotten knocked-up by her current husband. Not because
of the old-fashioned ethic that one shouldn't get preggers by one guy
while married to another--my, how antiquated-- but because he's hotter than
Kanye West, which is setting the bar pretty low. That's what's truly important!
