Kim Kardashian slams “malicious” Enquirer report about her charitable Haiti trip

A few weeks ago, Kim Kardashian and her mother went to Haiti. They allegedly traveled to the still-devastated island at the invitation of Maria Bello, who started a charity called We Advance, which guides money to women’s health issues. Kris and Kim posed with some kids and the whole trip was actually kind of quiet for the most part – there were no gratuitous tweets, Kim didn’t “pull a Cracken” and claim that she was saving lives, and it actually seemed like Kim and Kris actually spent their time learning about the charity. I think that when they came back, Kris issued a statement, but that was basically it.

Unfortunately, The Enquirer claims has new report based on interviews with lots of bitchy, Kardashian-hating Haitians – go here to read it. The Enquirer’s sources claim that Kim and Kris stayed in a fancy hotel, had poor children “bused in” for photo-ops, and that Kim went to a fashion show just for fun while she was in Haiti, and that Kim was scared of poverty germs. Oh, and that Oprah and Sean Penn totally hate how phony Kim is. Because I imagine Sean and Oprah think of nothing else…? Anyway, Kim is denying the report:

As some of you know, my mom and I flew out to Haiti earlier this month to meet with Maria Bello and embark on an amazing journey together in Haiti. Our mission was to learn more about Maria’s charity, We Advance, meet the Haitian people who have made such amazing progress since the devastating earthquake in 2010, and celebrate the women of Haiti, who inspired me more than I ever could have anticipated.

While my experience was completely life-changing… a very emotional and surprisingly positive journey that I will never forget, some media outlets have tried to tarnish the motive behind my visit and have written completely ridiculous and untrue things. The National Enquirer wrote that I went to a fashion show in Haiti and then spent a fortune pampering myself! The truth is that I was at the Haitian Artisan Fair, where the amazing men and women who make their jewelry and crafts sell them to visitors to make a living, and I bought some of their beautiful jewelry after the fashion show!! Reading this made me so disappointed in the media.

Taking such a positive thing and writing something malicious and untrue. The journalists obviously didn’t bother to do their research and instead published a ridiculous story to sell copies. I have ignored all of this until now, but because I wanted to write a few blogs about my experience, I felt I needed to address this first. I have become accustomed to dealing with rumors and lies spread about my family or my relationships, and have learned to ignore it to a certain extent. But when a magazine makes the decision to twist the truth and write lies like that, it belittles the entire experience we had in Haiti, and I won’t let them do that.

I think it’s important that I share my experiences with you all, rather than you read false reports in the media. I have some really great stories and photos from my trip and I’m so excited to share them with you all! Xo

What do I believe? I’d guess that Kim and Kris probably did spend at least SOME of their trip in luxurious accommodations, but I also think they probably did spend a lot of time learning about the charity and meeting people and all of that stuff. I also don’t think we should bash Kim for spending money while she was down there – Haiti’s economy is still struggling, and they need tourism dollars. I hate to say it, but even if Kim did take a trip to Haiti just for a fun vacation time, it would have helped. Yes, I can’t believe I’m defending her either. While I’m sure Kim just made the Haiti trip as a way to convince people that she’s a good person, she might have inadvertently helped and she might have actually done something positive. GAH.

Also, in other vaguely related news – Kris Humphries just signed on for another year with the Nets. His contract is somewhere in the $7-8 million range. Another GAH. I guess that stupid “Basketball, um, er, like, basketball, um” interview worked.

    She shouldn’t've any statement. Once again, the Kardashian’s are victims of others malice. Ppppuuuhhhhlllleeeaaazzzzeee.

  2. DD says:

    Leave her alone! She went there to help these poor, hungry, uneducated people. She did it becouse she wanted to do something great for the others who are less lucky, smart and pretty. All haters only wait nights and days for oportunity to bring her down.

  3. labyrinth says:

    The seam of her boob is showing…

  4. Cel says:

    Yes, leave her alone – by not reporting on any of her fame-whoring ventures or the self-serving drivel that comes out of her mouth….and that goes for the rest of the family as well!

  5. gillie says:

    “Taking such a positive thing and writing something malicious and untrue.”

    This is not even a sentence. I know I shouldn’t expect much from a Kardashian, but good grief, grammar-check would have caught that.

  6. Celebasshat says:

    Kris! Kim!! Kris!!! Get over yourself with your botox face and sagging ass because we all know what a delusional bitch you and your klan are. Everything you guys did at Haiti is still for repairing Kim’s image because you know that people will feel you and your Klan care so much about this people by giving out money and trying to play nice, all the while going back to your fancy hotel and washing urself to oblivion 2 remove all the hands that ever touch you there to detoxify any germs. Oh Kris and Klan be a real human for once and show that you really care for this people and not for good publicity on your part.

    • Elizabeth says:

      ITA. I don’t think this trip would ever have happened if Kim hadn’t screwed up and dumped her 72 day husband. This trip was an image-fixer. This makes me glad I don’t have a TV. I just rely on Celebitchy for all my information!

    • MW says:

      Yep, this is more about saving her career and “proving” that Kim was so busy with charitable causes (as her Mother stated she was) after the divorce debacle. First it was the “helping the homeless” serving up Thanksgiving food in LA, now this — basically going to Haiti to rub elbows for a few photo ops. Of course she “learned something”, Maria Bello asked her down there to participate, and Kim didn’t her making any statements after the fact about what a snob she was about the whole thing.

  7. Agnes says:

    Is anyone surprised by their continuing vapid behavior and famewhoring? Of course not. :)

  8. Dea says:

    We know that Kardashians will sue others for nothing. If what NE reported is completely fabricated was momager leaving this at just a statement?? NO. She was going to sue the hell out of NE and make millions. NE must have sent their team there and I totally believe what they reported. So Kim: Get a life you f..cking bitch!!

    • Dawn says:

      Who are the biggest liars here I wonder…NE or the Kardashian spin machine. I would never believe that I would ever say this but the NE has more credibility than the Kardashian klan could ever hope for. I totally believe every single word uttered in the NE article that these two acted entitled and improperly on their trip to Haiti. After all Kim could not deal with YEE-Haws in MN, how in god’s name did she deal with really, really poor people? I would say she couldn’t and wouldn’t.

  9. Victoria says:

    Let’s not assume that because people are poor and hungry, they are also uneducated. That is totally such a middle class thing to assume. I know A LOT of Haitians who have made their homes in NY who poor and went to NY or even Canada and they were perfectly well read on political matters, bilingual, etc. They just needed an opportunity.

    I don’t know. I’m glad she’s stimulating the economy in Haiti in her own way. But we all know this was well time publicity stunt. I don’t care if you do it for PR, just don’t pretend.

  10. Kendall says:

    I think we should all stop writing about her and she’ll eventually go away.

    Who am I kidding? It’s too much fun to stop.

  11. atlantapug says:

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

    Tarantula eyelashes and shiney, rock-hard boob cleavage!!!

    Who the hell cares about them going to Haiti anyway? Ooooh, you bought a $2 necklace from a poor lady, you’re such a giver. Please.

  12. Silk Spectre says:

    Never noticed her hamster cheeks. Are this new pix? It’s ridiculous….ease off the fillers!!!

  13. lucy2 says:

    I’d feel bad for anyone else, but not them. They need to realize that people have seen through them and their famewhore ways, and they should just go quietly away now.

  14. becky says:

    Way to bury the lead….
    Humphries is staying w the Nets, with , what, a contract for at least twice the previous salary, and most of all, right by NYC, where I SO, SO hope he buys his new place. And Kimmy is stuck in her long sleeve and pants because she’s a vain vain slut (i wouldn’t wish psoraisis on anyone, but I can’t be said when someone like that gets its bad, it’s like, karmic retribution)

  15. mel says:

    Did anyone catch that Kris Humphries signed a $7-8 million contract with the Nets. So will Kimmy K try to reconcile with her-now-employed hubby?

  16. madpoe says:

    Yeahhh..I just signed a petition at boycottkim hope she’s poofs away soon! I want 2012 to be a good year being its the end of the world *again* on the Mayan calander *heavy sighs*

  17. Blue says:

    7-8 million for Kris? Damn. He never made that much before (I’m pretty sure)

  18. ladybert62 says:

    I believe she does as much for charity as trampie Jolie does! ha ha

    (I am ducking from the rotten tomatoes being thrown at me from the other posters!!!!)

  19. NM9005 says:

    She writes a lot of “I’s” in her statements. This is not the first time I noticed that. Madonna does it too. Whether the subject is about her or not. Typical narcissistic behaviour. The trip was about Haiti yet she feels the need to talk about how SHE feels when the media scrutinizes it? Just write your opinion and experience of Haiti and ignore the negative. That will shut naysayers up, now she just proved them right.

    Nevertheless, if people always say “it doesn’t matter if it’s a pr stunt or not, as long as they can shed attention to the matter, it’s fine”. Well, than I guess KK did fine. Doing something (whether it’s pure or set-up) is ALWAYS better than doing nothing and to her credit she didn’t publicize the trip that much (as Kaiser also pointed out), probably much to the dismay of people who expected the opposite (what a truly pleasant surprise). So she can be subtle if she wants too. Too bad one trip can’t fix all the rest of her foolery and she knows that. It will be interesting to see which other steps she’s going to take to regain a better image.

    Also, if we are going to presume that KK did it only for selfish purposes (probably the majority of it IS) than we are also presuming that Miss Bello is a dumb twat who gets mislead by a reality star. And I for one, will not do that. If she can see something good in KK than I will too.

  20. gimmeabreak says:

    Can’t believe how jealous people are of Kim and her Family. Looking for any and everything negative to say. One thing for sure she keeps you haters sick to your stomachs. A bunch of jealous hypocrites who would die to be in her shoes. I hope she continues to flourish while you haters pretend not to be enthralled and amused. I also hope all the evil you wish on her falls right in your laps. She can’t help it if she is drop dead gorgeous and paid top dollar to do nothing she’s just a lucky bitch Get over it!

  21. dorothy says:

    Blah, blah, blah…I’m so great, everyone picks on me, look at me…go away already.

  22. phlyfiremama says:

    Michael K over at Dlisted sums it up pretty nicely in his headline, and the whole article.

  23. Lynne says:

    Still wondering who paid for her private jet and her 1k a night presidential suite. Did she cover the cost or did her lodging/travel expenses come out of the donations to the charity?

  24. the original bellaluna says:

    Am I the only one laughing my fraggle-rocking arse off at the Schadenfreude going on here? Because I think it’s hysterically funny!

    (And her earlobes are going to rival her T&A for “lowest centre of gravity” if she doesn’t stop wearing those heavy earrings.)

  25. skuddles says:

    Uh huh Kim (Kris)…. blah blah blah bullsh*t.

  26. dorothy says:

    The Kardashian’s have become a national joke. They will never be thought of as anything other than fame-mongers.

  27. Faye says:

    Help is help, and if she somehow managed to do so, then that is a good thing. It’d be nice if she realized how lucky she is and decided to continue her charity efforts. Or just go there and spend money. Either way, like I said, help is help, and we know they need it. (They being the residents of devastated Haiti, not the Kardashians, though they may need help of a different nature.)

  28. dvr says:

    There are no “luxurious” accomodations in Haiti. A luxury there is clean, running water and/or electricity…she is a complete disgrace.

  29. Launicaangelina says:

    I imagine Kim saying the word Hatian in the same way Cher from Clueless did, Hay-Tee-Uns. Lol!

  30. Kim says:

    Kim really doesnt know the truth from a lie. Her entire existence is built on lies so i would never expect her to be honest about anything. She doesnt know how to not lie.

  31. hatsumomo says:

    Re on Humphries getting signed with the Nets: He’s a fricking basketball player for crying out loud! I dont even like the dude or team but the snark on him is getting on my nerves. His official job title isn’t famewhore or reality star, its basketball player. His career is based on him playing basketball, hence he prolly eats, sleeps, breathes, lives nothing but basketball. Jeez give the guy a break already for having a legitimate career.

  32. Viv says:

    “I didn’t go to a fashion show! Oh, wait, maybe I did! But I bought some beads from poor people right after! Isn’t that what you do for fun in destroyed countries with no infrastructure while you wait for the helicopter to the hotel? How nasty of you media to judge me. Go buy beads! Now!”

  33. moja31 says:

    umm who the hell responds to the national enquirer? someone who wants attention, aka kim kardashian.

  34. Mar says:

    She looks so plastic in these pics. What the hell is up with her cheek bones? Seriously she is freaking obsessed in a very bad way with cosmetic surgery. She needs an intervention

  35. mojoman says:

    I live in Asia so we dont get exposure to the show, but after holding out for so long, I finally just gave in to know exactly what the fuss is all about. And I can tell you this right now: that was the FIRST and the LAST 42 minutes I will ever spend to know about those vapid kreatures (wrong spelling and keeping it). GAH!! the superficial, narcissistic, blatant materialistic elements in that show make me want to throw up. How can people enjoy these kind of shows? I dont know, maybe because I live in a developing country where there is such thing as REALITY and materialistic stuff is not important. What does that show to people who watch it religiously? are they also screwed up, out of touch or just plain sad? all I know is I wish I can ask itunes to refund my $1.99 back :-)

  36. heidiho says:

    Bunch O talentless fame whores. She looks weird and plasticky and her boob? Whaddup there? Ouch

  37. Meg says:

    she only denies going to a fashion show, she doesn’t deny wearing overpriced designer clothing, staying in a luxury hotel, not visiting refugees, etc.
    creating their version of the truth that is most convenient for them is the talent the kardashian’s have.
    shame on them.
    it’s remarkable how many people have this talent

  38. skeptical says:

    “and I bought some of their beautiful jewelry after the fashion show!!”

    after the fashion show!!

    after the fashion show!!

    So kim is not denying that she went to a fashion show after all :p
