There are likely two reasons we haven’t heard much (if anything?) from Kim Kardashian since her robbery last week: 1) Because when she is finally heard from, it’ll be through a high-profile interview with a respected journalist, and 2) Because she was fucking robbed at gunpoint, tied up, made to fear for her life not too long ago and that shit sort of messes you up for a while.
In an interview with Ellen, Kim’s little sister Khloe shared a little insight into how she’s is doing right now:
“She’s not doing that well. I mean, it’s incredibly traumatic what happened to her, but our family is super close and great and we’ll get through it together. We do appreciate all of your guys’ love and support. It will take time. You know? It was horrible what happened to her.”
And when asked about the family’s current limited media strategy:
“I think it’s just a wake up call to make a lot of life adjustments. It’s a really serious matter.”
Meanwhile, the latest robbery update from TMZ is that Kim believed her attackers were “amateurs” based on the way they held/pointed their guns, and the fact that their “uniforms” looked like they were from a “Halloween store.”
Picture it. 1999. Gwyneth Paltrow is still making a name for herself by pretending to be English. She’s just won an Oscar for Shakespeare In Love. She’s about 27 years old, “at the height” of her stardom, and “very much believing [her] own hype.”
You know what? Let Gwyneth tell the rest:
“I was sitting with my dad, feeling great about my life and everything that was happening, and he was like, ‘You know, you’re getting a little weird . . . You’re kind of an asshole.’ And I was like, ‘What the hell?’ I was totally devastated,’” she said.
“What my dad said to me was the kind of criticism where I was like, ‘Oh, my God, I’m on the wrong track.’ I’m so grateful to him for doing that.”
In short: Gwyneth Paltrow called her an asshole, and it made her a better person.
Heeeeeeeeere’s Shailene Woodley’s mugshot. (She was arrested for peacefully protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline.)
