Just one day after a U.S. cruise ship touched a Havana port for the first time in 48 years, People reports that the Kardashians will be voyaging to the island to film their reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which began its 12th season on Sunday. Just think: While Cubans continued to experience reverberations from the disastrous Special Period, Tyra Banks was showing up at the Kardashian household to discuss Kim’s sex tape.
What implications does this important diplomatic mission have for our future ties to a nation still very much under the thumb of an oppressive Castro regime? And under which of the 12 approved travel categories will Kourtney, Kim, and Khloé be visiting? Their options, as listed on the freshly-minted U.S. Embassy website, include religious activities, public performances, athletic competitions, humanitarian projects and “support for the Cuban people,” among others. Honestly, it could be just about any of them.
The trio was reportedly en route on Tuesday evening, meaning they may or may not have made it in time to witness Tony Castro, grandson of Fidel, sauntering down the runway in Chanel’s Cruise collection show. Castro is 19, which incidentally makes him the perfect age for an illicit tryst with Kendall Jenner. It’s unclear whether she joined her sisters on the trip, but come on, who wouldn’t cancel plans to stay home and watch that episode?
