Despite the fact that the Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have reportedly gone on a mere SINGLE date, Kim has wasted no time cashing in ON the music mogul’s superstar status. Radar Online is reporting that Kanye has signed off to appear on the upcoming season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Are you surprised? I’m not. That news is about as shocking as Courtney Stodden tweeting out obscene pics of her in a lubed-up bunny costume on Easter – ya kind of saw it coming.
While he isn’t a stranger to the Kardashian reality show (he appeared on Kourtney & Kim Take Manhattan to give the gals some fashion advice), Kanye would be making a bold step in appearing on Kim’s reality show. And one can assume that Kim’s hope is that his appearance would help improve her ever-faltering image.
But is this just another case of Kim using her love life for monetary gain? My guess is – HELL YES. Kim Kardashian aka the person who put her ENTIRE sham of a wedding and marriage on air – is obviously going to take advantage of this new “relationship.” Let’s be honest the whole Kanye/Kim dating thing seems like a clever ruse to me, and a complete publicity stunt. There have been rumors swirling for years that Kanye is gay and that his past love Amber Rose was merely a bald-headed beard. And with Kris Humphries constantly disparaging her and their 72-day marriage in the media – Kim needs all the help she can get. While you may love those Kardashians or think that the reality family is human garbage, it’s clear that Kim knows how to keep spinning the media dial in order to keep her rich and famous.
Adore her or hate her with the fire of a thousand suns, ya gotta give it to her the big-bottomed girl -- she knows how the rockin’ world goes round. All she has to do to stop people asking her about Kris Humphries and her divorce? Just date the most controversial man in music. So kudos, Kimbo! Maybe this relationship will help you garner another $17 million. Or maybe people will finally realize your life is a joke.
Love and fake relationships!
