The Kim Kardashian Story That Won't Go Away


Over the weekend, the superbly excellent Reality Tea, posted a photo of Kim Kardashian and her mom walking out of a studio with Kris' assistant holding a dress behind her. It is the same dress Kris had worn in Dubai when the pair made their trip there in October. The segment which was actually filmed in December rather than October but passed off as October has Kim complaining to her mom about how bad her marriage is. The thing is, I am totally on board with the hammer Kim every second of every day and find anything you can to make her life worse. I want her to go away just as much as any of you. The problem I have with the story and why I did not write about it is we have no way of knowing whether or not that conversation did happen. Do you know how many times scenes have to be shot again in movies and television shows? Plus, if it were not for dubbing, you would never understand half the words being said. Am I saying this is what happened here? Probably not. I think the producers wanted to fit everything into a nice little box and Kim and her mother have chosen to ignore it so they probably were making up crap, but if they came out and said they had to shoot a scene again, it would not be the first time it has happened.

I have never seen the show but watched the clip in question on another site. The mom sits there with a smirk on her face like she can't believe she has to act this out when she knows the outcome. Either she is the worst actress ever or the worst mom for smirking when her daughter is telling her the marriage is not right. I wanted to slap the look off her face. I think she is the worst actress and knew dang well it was all fake.

I was sick over the weekend & happened to see this episode before this story came out. I thought the scene appeared out of place from the other footage. It mostly just showed Kim's mom sitting there, emotionless, with occasional nodding, while Kim spoke about her marriage. The biggest clue was that the camera was rarely on Kim & her voice kept changing, so you could tell it was coming from different filming methods. I know that re-shoots & dubbing are common, but let's face it; it was reported in November that Kim was shocked at what footage she had to work with prior to it being aired, and was scrambling to edit it in her favor. This "re-shoot" came after that story, so to me this is definitely part of her strategy to make her look like the good one in this relationship. Unfortunately for Kim, she has a false idea of what is worthy of sympathy, so she comes out just as bad if not worse.

Even if it isn't true, enough people believe it's possible. Some don't care. I have zero sympathy for sex tape/attention whores.

i can't imagine being so vested in a show that i'd keep up w/ continuity/wardrobe changes/trips/scripts....but good for the reality tea people. anything that brings about a downturn in ratings for this family is a good thing.

When I saw the episode I thought it was weird that the windows seemed extremely blacked out in the car. Normally when they show car scenes, background stuff is shown out the window while driving along. Now that I've heard this, it makes sense why the windows were blacked out.

I am not following this at all. Not like it matters but not sure what the hell is happening here. Anyone wanna help?

I'm still trying to wrap my mind around her allowing herself to get pee'd on AND even worse, recording the seedy event, and even worse yet again, distributing it out to the public, as if with pride!!!!!!

Is she a public toilet????

Shay said...

omg..when will they finally go away???

Love this!

RocketQueen said...

lol Sherry, I'm confused as hell by this post as well. Fortunately, I don't really give enough of a shit to care. Sounds like the gist is, as usual, the Kardashians' show isn't actually reality. Yawn.

Sherry said...

Yeah RQ..Why would anyone really care?

Mooshki said...

Sherry/RQ, the point of the faked scene was to make it look like there were legitimate problems with their marriage, so Kim's decision doesn't look so impulsive. They also, of course, tried to make it look like Boy Kris was to blame for those problems.

Mooshki said...

(Basically, they're trying to re-write history to improve Kim's image.)

EXACTLY what Carrie said! I'm not a genius but even I could tell that Kim's voice sounded different and I thought that it was strange that the camera was only on Kris with Kim's voice coming from the side. Plus that was the episode where they really tried to make Kim's ex look like a real fool! Poor guy. Run Kris H! Run like the wind and be glad you escaped in only 72 days!

Good Lord LOOK at this shoulder pads!! This ain't the 80's Kim. Enough.

I noticed in the clip that there was so much jostling and bumps during their entire scene. Looked like Indiana Jones ride at Disney Land. SO fake. And NO seatbelts. I think it was poorly done and is exactly what the rumor says it is. Ex post facto shitastical performances.
