Yesterday TMZ reported that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West did NOT want their baby following its mama into the reality TV biz (they don’t know the gender yet but plan to find out as soon as they’re able). Well, it sounds like E! has other plans. E! president Suzanne Kolb told the Hollywood Reporter:
“Kim and Kanye are an incredibly dynamic couple, and their baby news is just so exciting. Like so many Kardashian fans, we love it when this close-knit family gets even bigger. We look forward to sharing the joy as they prepare for more diapers, more bottle and without a doubt, more fabulous baby wear.”
An insider added E! “will continue to cover all aspects of Kim’s life as it always has.”
If TMZ’s story is true, then methinks some MAJOR behind-the-scenes wrangling is about to take place over this baby’s exposure. Kanye better have good people to negotiate this; something tells me momager Kris Jenner is in line with E! Well, I don’t think a minor can be on camera without both parents’ permission, so Kanye may just have to be the bad guy since Kim has a contract with E!
In other interesting news, Kim will likely still be legally married to Kris Humphries when the baby is born. The baby is due in June, and the earliest date for a trial would be in June due to Kris’ NBA schedule. If I were Kim, I’d seriously consider saying the marriage was a fraud just to get the divorce already. Paternity is typically assumed to be the legal husband, so it will just be one more legal issue Kim and Kanye have to deal with if she’s still legally married to another man when she gives birth (although I’m sure there’s a way to handle the legal presumption).
One thing is for sure: there will be NO shortage of drama with the Kardashians in 2013!
