KIM KARDASHIAN
Is Back To Brunette For VOGUE Cover

KimKardashianHairMAIN

Kim Kardashian – who made a semi-big deal about dying her hair blonde on her hit reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians – has gone back to her roots. Well, her hair has anyway. The gorgeous reality star posted a snap on her Instagram account of a much darker hair color, with the caption “I’m back.”

The interesting part about this, though, isn’t Kim’s changing hair color – but the reason why she changed it. Rumor has it that yesterday, while we were all watching the Super Bowl, Kim was partaking in a photo shoot… for Vogue. Kim has been trying to land herself a Vogue cover forever and it looks like she may have finally done it.

I’m thinking that without Kanye West’s friendship with Anna Wintour, the famed editor would never have let Kim anywhere near a Vogue shoot. It looks like Kanye’s [creepy] makeover of his fiance is paying off after all.

KANYE WEST
Settles With Guy He Allegedly Punched

kanye west settlement (1)

Assuming this story is true, it’s not surprising. Radar Online reports that Kanye West has reached a settlement with the guy he allegedly assaulted for using racial slurs in front of Kim Kardashian. Kanye reportedly will pay the guy (he’s said to be 18) a cool $250,000. That will take care of a year or two of tuition if he’s in college (and depending on where he’s enrolled).

I wish Kanye would learn to control his temper. If it’s true this kid was using the “N-word,” then I hate the fact that he got PAID for it. If I were Kanye, just the thought of having to pay someone in a settlement would get me to reign myself in.

KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST Planning A Summer-time Paris Wedding

Kim + Kanye - Summer Wedding MAIN


Kim Kardashian confirmed on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night that she and her fiance, Kanye West, definitely plan to get married this summer and they’re hoping that it’ll be in Paris.

When Kim and Kanye were spotted on a private tour of Versailles earlier this year it sent their fans (and media!) into a tizzy about the possibility of a Versailles wedding. Kim didn’t mention a specific location, although even American royalty like these two would have a hard time renting out one of the most famous tourist attractions (and historically significant residences) in the world.

The newest season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians kicked off last week and there’s already been tons of drama, with most of the season focusing on Khloe and Lamar’s imploding relationship. The editing has been surprisingly gentle with the topic, and although the season is already two episodes in they have yet to say exactly what the problem between Khloe and Lamar is (although we all know now that he’s been dealing with some drug issues). Khloe officially filed for divorce in December.

KIM KARDASHIAN & KANYE WEST
Kimye Hit The Shops With Baby North

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Shop At Bulthaup

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are back in LA after enjoying some time in Paris. Rumor has it they were doing some wedding planning, including the tidbit that their wedding would NOT be at the Palace of Versailles. Palace officials reportedly denied their request. I’m sure that is merely a bump in the road for a BLOWOUT Kimye wedding.

Here are Kim and Kanye leaving Bulthaup. Bulthaup is known for their kitchen designs, so it looks like they were doing some work for their new house. Maybe they just also wanted baby North to get some fresh air? She remained hidden in the stroller while outside. I don’t blame Kim and Kanye for that: they draw quite a crowd of paparazzi!

KIM KARDASHIAN & KANYE WEST
No Versailles Wedding For Kimye

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Step Out In Paris

Remember the rumor that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wanted to tie the knot at the famous Palace of Versailles? It actually was a feasible possible: the Palace does rent out rooms for events. Kim and Kanye are currently in Paris and visited Versailles. Kim even posted a picture of the two of them leaving the Palace after dark (check out the thumbnail to see a large version) on Instagram. Well, according to Radar Online, the Palace has DENIED their request to have their wedding there. A source claims Kanye was actually told the answer would be “no” before their visit:

[Kim & Kanye's] wedding/reception wouldn’t take place at Versailles. It would just have been to intrusive for visitors to the Palace, and the staff. [But] Kim and Kanye really wanted to get married at Versailles and were both hoping to persuade officials during their visit…ultimately it backfired. It was still a firm no.

“Kim and Kanye will now be scouting private estates and chateau’s in the region. Working with an estate manager would be much easier than dealing with all of the red tape of having a wedding at a public venue. The couple is looking for something grand, but something that can offer privacy and security.”

I feel torn about this. On one hand, if rooms are available for rent, shouldn’t anyone be allowed to rent them as long as they can afford the fees? On the other hand, the thought of a Kimye wedding in Versailles just seems SO over-the-top. I’ve gotta ask:
