As the Paris police bumble around cobblestone streets and peek into alleyways looking for the men who robbed Kim Kardashian, the star had her own personal come to Jesus with regards to her public self.

Us Weekly reports that in light of the robbery, Kim’s been taking stock of how she comports herself on the internet and otherwise. “She realizes she was living in a bubble doing what she was doing. She loved flaunting her wealth and being so public,” the source reportedly said. “She felt safe and never really thought about her vulnerability. Now she knows she was so naive. Everything has to change going forward.”

She is perhaps referring to this.


That’s the big ol’ ring the robbers stole when they burst into her hotel room dressed as policemen, taped up her hands and wrists and locked her in the bathroom. According to People, Kim’s placing the blame for the robbery squarely on herself, just like the Paris police sort of did.

“She’s tearing herself up that she Snapchatted the ring so much and wore it all the time,” the source said. “This incident is making her question everything. How she dresses, what she does.”

Yes, Kim shows out an awful lot on Snapchat and the like, but her job is promoting her brand. Her brand is herself, her lifestyle and all the custom Givenchy and Balmain that comes with it. She’s pretty good at it. Regardless of what you think about the Kardashians and the way they flaunt their wealth, not a single person deserves the kind of treatment she received.

In light of the recent incident and in an attempt to keep a low profile, Kim’s also cancelled an upcoming makeup class in Dubai. Seems like a smart move.

In an attempt to shield the children from the frenzy of bloodthirsty sharks swirling around the corpse of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s marriage, she is packing her bags and taking the kids to Malibu.


TMZ reported last week that Angie was renting one home in Malibu, a big sprawling thing snuggled up on the coast overlooking the Pacific – all the better to keep her children safe and sound. And now, in an attempt to thwart the paps from posting up outside one house while she collects her life and plans her attack, she’s renting another one, also in Malibu and just as nice.

Two houses. The woman has two houses, just so she can avoid the paparazzi following her every move and so that her children don’t have to deal with the unique hell of watching your parents split up while being accosted by photographers at every turn. Say what you will about her, if there even is anything to say, but she’s always been a good mom.


Being famous sounds terrible.

not a single person deserves the kind of treatment she received

This. I was talking to a co-worker the other day about what happened to Kim Kardashian. His response was that it sounded like “rich people problems”. I responded by asking him if empathy was only for less wealthy people.

I just don’t understand that type of response. No matter how awful someone is I would never be happy or flippant if they were assaulted.
