It seems that fashion advice isn't the only thing that Kim Kardashian has acquired from beau, Kanye West. The voluptuous reality star has apparently adopted his interest in politics, as well, and recently jetted off to host a Democratic National Convention after party at a local club in Charlotte, NC.
But there are rumors swirling that her appearance wasn't well received and few people showed up. Other sources have yet to corroborate this, but if any truth exists to the story, we might assume that the general public has had just about enough of Kardashian. Here are some reasons why the buxom star may be treading on thin ice.
Stealing Jay-Z's Shine
It's no secret that R&B diva Beyonce doesn't seem to be keen on getting too chummy with Kim. But when the brunette may have attempted to horn in on Jay-Z's camera time during documentary filming at a recent music festival, Bey allegedly wasn't having it. Sources say she had a few words with the reality star, reminding her that the piece was about her husband, not Kim. It seems that even other celebrities are having a hard time with her attempts to fit in.
A History of Spotlight Theft…
Some might say that Beyonce was being especially paranoid about Kim's presence at the function, however Kardashian has a habit of stealing the spotlight during moments that are especially significant for others. When she was dating Reggie Bush and the Saints won the Superbowl in 2010, she crashed the interview, ultimately upstaging Bush. Reggie was a good sport, but looked slightly uncomfortable. In the eyes of many, not allowing him that moment to shine on his own was in poor taste.
In August 2012 Kim posted sexy retro swimsuit pictures while she and West were vacationing in Hawaii. At first, fans assumed that she'd graced them with more new eye candy…that is until we realized that the photos were from a 2009 photo shoot in the Bahamas. Britney Spears did the same thing. But for some reason, we just don't care as much because she's busy revamping her singing career and raising a family. Indeed, the only person Kim rivals in the number of posted bikini photos is LeAnn Rimes. Perhaps this Kardashian was merely trying to "keep up" with the country singer's steady parade of sexy shots.
The Sex Tape Thing…Again
We just can't seem to get away from the whole sex tape issue. But this time we have Kanye West to blame for that one. In July 2012, Kanye said he never wanted to see Kim's sex tape with ex, Ray J, allegedly banning his buddies from even talking about the incident. But in a recent song, the rapper bragged about his girl becoming a superstar because of a "home movie." It's not necessarily Kim's fault that the world continues to make a big deal over the racy footage. Nonetheless, West bringing it up again sends the message that perhaps neither he nor she is as devastated about it as they'd have us to believe.
