Kim Kardashian partied, sang & stopped by an orphanage in Cote d’Ivoire

Did you know that Kim Kardashian was in Cote d’Ivoire this past weekend? True story. My guess is that some African millionaire spread some cash around to get Kim to fly in for his club opening or event. She made two appearances – on Saturday and Sunday night (??) – at the Life Star Nightclub, and Kim did costume changes and she posed for photos and she basically looked a little bit bewildered, but I guess she’s popular in Cote d’Ivoire, so good for her.

Just like last week’s unflattering menswear disaster, Kim wasn’t really showing off her baby bump in tight, slinky clothing. My guess is that Kim is at that in-between stage where everything is getting bigger but she hasn’t really “popped” yet, so she’s waiting to show off her bump until then. So for now she’s just going to wear baggy suits and horrible dresses and skirts with ridiculous peplums. I have to admit that I think she looks pretty in the black dress photos – I mean, the dress is horrible, but her face looks pretty there.

According to the UK tabs, Kim did some karaoke at the club, which I’m sure was absolutely terrible and the African millionaire probably wanted his money back. According to Kim’s Twitter, she also visited an orphanage while she was there. For real! She tweeted: “Just left an orphanage here in Abidjan and met some of the sweetest children ever.” What the hell? Is she looking to adopt or did she just want to stop in and say hi the orphans?

    Haha I am predicting like many ‘thick girls’ before her (including Beyonce) she won’t have a bump. Some women carry that way.

  2. Redheadwriter says:

    The poor things are already orphaned. And now they have to listen and look at KK? That’s just not right.

  3. Lucy says:

    Her face is looking really weird with this pregnancy isn’t it?

  4. dcypher1 says:

    Kim please stop with the peplums they do u no favors.

  5. lisa2 says:

    I think she is trying to change her image. the new Kim

  6. Eleonor says:

    I think she must have a plan to change her image again. A sort of upgrade plan.
    She is going to have Kayne West baby, and I bet she wants to be accepted even by his fanbase and for this, she has to change her image. It wouldn’t surprise me if she is going to do some charities in the future.

  7. GoodCapon says:

    Stop with the peplums please!!

    • littlestar says:

      I think I am one of the few people on this site who actually loves peplum :) . I have no hips and wearing peplum makes me look curvy, which I really like. I think peplum on really curvy girls like Kim kind of distorts how her body looks, and not in a good way most of the time.

      Kind of on a tangent here, I miss how Kim used to dress BEFORE Kanye. I think she actually had really good style then. Her street style was awesome – would have loved to own all of the pieces she would wear. Nice slim jeans or pants, cute flowy tops and blazers. She just looked put together. Now she looks like a try-hard with her “couture” fashion.

  8. Dawn says:

    Oh those poor kids. I saw an ad on TLC for a new show called Gypsie Sisters and I thought for a minute that the karTrashians got a new show. Happily not.

  9. Nina W says:

    Wow she looks more and more like her mother everyday and the peplum must die, it does her no favors and needs to stay on skinny girls where it belongs. I hope she gave the orphans some cash.

    • lisa2 says:

      I think that is why Kim is the favorite daughter. She looks exactly like her mother. And looking at Kris we know exactly what Kim will look like. I guess after the face lift her mother had. But she really is the clone of her mother.

      • Jayna says:

        She looks exactly like her mom with her nose job, Botox, fillers. Heavy makeup. Pre nose job (thinning her nose) and Botox, fillers, and with soft makeup and almond-shaped eyes. Kim was gorgeous and more ethnic looking. Kanye had her tone down her makeup this year, particularly her crappy fake eyelashes and mostly uses more natural ones now.

  10. Ida says:

    I cannot believe I’m actually typing this but I think she looks good in the trouser+jacket combo. That dress is horrendous on the other hand.

    • Nina W says:

      Ugh, no! Did you miss the asymmetrical hemline and collar on the jacket? Or the unfortunate pegged legs with shiny fabric of the pant? She can look good in a little black suit but this one, no.

      • Ida says:

        Eh. I didn’t mean that I think the trousers are great in themselves (or even the jacket, although it is more appealing). I don’t think I would ever be persuaded to wear such trousers. I just think this outfit is a welcome change from the ones she usually picks in which she is squeezed like a sausage. A loose dress or pair of pants with a tailored jacket are generally a more relaxed and sophisticated look in my opinion.

  11. India says:

    I think Kim K behaves more royal than Lazy Waity Katy ever could.

  12. The Original Mia says:

    On another board, someone who lived in Africa said she was surprised Kim went to a malaria area. She said although this wasn’t the high season, that the risk of catching malaria would make any pregnant woman avoid the area.

    I was wondering about all the travel. She’s been on a lot of plane rides since the announcement. Isn’t that a concern in any pregnancy?

    • MsMileHigh says:

      Ha! Exactly! Makes me think “surrogate” and “fake baby bumps” are involved in this pregnancy.

    • Viv says:

      well, she and her team probably do not know what malaria is. And if Kanye was there- he feels his superpowers would make him immune, right?

    • jess says:

      Yikes! I would avoid malaria areas, pregnant or not! Airplanes, however, are fine until the doctor says no more flying, usually very late in the pregnancy, or high risk pregnancies. No babies being born on the plane! hahaha

    • lazyb says:

      Meh, I live in a malarial area of Africa (Kampala) and it’s not really that big of a deal. For people with means and money it’s about as bad as a flu. It’s unlikely to really cause too many complications as long as it’s caught early. And yeah, if you’ve been to a malaria area, and you start to get a flu, you just get a 30 min blood test at the first signs and nip it in the bud.

      I’ve never had it (luck) even though I don’t take antimalarials but my roommates have all had it multiple times and most here are very nonchalant about it.

      But that’s people in the city. It’s still a huge deal to those without medical centers around. Which is why it kills so many in Sub Saharan Africa. So many villages and areas here don’t have testing/pharmacies. Also they don’t have money for medication in the first place. But for someone like Kim it’s not an issue.

  13. T.C. says:

    WTF? I went to party and stopped by an orphanage to say hey on my way out. Really like the orphans get something out of seeing an overly privileged reality show star? Sit your ass down Kim.

  14. Jayna says:

    Where’s a big donation? Obviously, didn’t happen because she would publicize it. What a phony. Remember the Haiti trip in the middle of the fallout from her fraud marriage and then never any charity again. I guess being preggars going to a club needed to be offset by a visit to the orphans and get her publicity. Ughhhh.

  15. Dawn says:

    Ummm she did not do this using her own money poeple, she got a pay day out of this. This woman does NOTHING without having some sort of pay day attached. Trying to change her image by being pregnant with one man’s child while married to annother with no excuse other than she got a big pay day for marrying the man in the first place and does not want to surrender even one penny of that check should not be okay and yet. Get real this woman only cares about money and what it does for HER. She keeps on proving it and all her fans keep trying to make her into a smart and caring business woman. She will be that when pigs fly.

  16. Shelly says:

    I actually kind of like this suit she’s wearing in these pics. It’s an improvement over the too-tight dresses/skirts she usually wears.

  17. Dani says:

    I have nothing nice to say besides that her hair looks good here. The end.

  18. Cathy says:

    She should just go away and try to have a healthy pregnancy. All these trips and changing times zones can’t be easy. Time to think of the baby Kim, stay home for awhile.

  19. it'sjustblanche says:

    She’s ridiculous looking. All that money and she can’t find anthing that looks like it fits properly. I’m short too–it’s called getting things tailored.

  20. PinkG says:

    Holy lip injections, Batman! She looks ridiculous.

  21. palermo says:

    haven’t those kids had a hard enough life without her adding to it

  22. tabasco says:

    omg, those pants! what the hell? the cuffed ankles and bunchy crotch????

  23. tabasco says:

    those pants make her look like she has very questionable genitalia. i’m sorry. here’s your brain bleach….

  24. marie says:

    this is for j.eyre:
    I like Kim’s choice in nail color. (seriously, this will have to do cause it’s all I got) nice win over the Falcons..

    • j.eyre says:

      Oh Marie – NO! You only had to say something nice if your QB choked, which he didn’t. But I respect you for your commitment.
      If it make you feel at all better about it, I had to actually click on a Kardashian post to see your comment – which pains me. And secondly – have you seen the men I have to choose from today? The hottest ones are Pres. Obama and DDL. Whereas I respect both and they are handsome, they weren’t quite the NFC Championship Winning Dong I was hoping for.
      I am thrilled with the victory but I do know how much a defeat hurts so I am sorry. They played a great game.

  25. G says:

    She’s not pregnant no way…nope sorry I won’t believe it. They are setting us all up for something I just know it.

  26. Cirque28 says:

    Peplum is not the answer to pregnancy.

  27. jwoolman says:

    Don’t know if she’s really pregnant and heaven help the child– but it seems to me that she’s looking much more human recently. Not sure if that change coincides with the alleged conception. I imagine Kanye has been leading her toward more humanoid makeup. She still seemed plastic when poor Mercy (r.i.p.) arrived on the scene.

  28. erika says:

    KK has the hardest time just being ‘casual’ and making fun of of herself. she flat out fails.

    see that pic of hr singing she is sooooooo uncomfortable, just goof off KK! laugt at yourself, be dramatic..

    see her right arm? it’ is clenched tight, her fingers tig

  29. dahlianoir says:

    ” Now that I’m pregnant, I’m all emotional and stuff”

  30. pinkG says:

    She looks like Jade Nicole in the pic of her holding the mic.

  31. floridaseaturtle says:

    ..stopped by an orphanage. So? By gracing her presence, she improved their world in what way? ‘hey kids, there is a verrrry important celebrity coming in to see you guys, be on your best behavior..”. If she was sincere person with class, she would just go and visit with the kids with an open heart, and give a monetary donation on the down low. Most of us give and share constantly and live basically, and/or cut back on normal groceries. I really can’t stand/don’t respect celebrities that twitter their feel-goodie deeds, and wear cute hair and name tags on their aprons at Christmas at the homeless food shelter lines. Whatever.

    • LittleDeadGirl says:

      So true. Also why not just make a donation. I never understood the whole “visit the orphanage” thing. I mean why would the kids care … unless you’re Dore the Explorer they just probably look blankly at the lady and go back to doing whatever they were doing before. It seems more to make the celebrity feel better than do any actual good for the kids …

      Just seems like she wants to improve her image … and in her mind it’s “adopt a kitten … that didn’t work … let’s visit an orphanage”

      • BestJes says:

        I suppose it’s *possible* that the Kardashians are huge on the Ivory Coast, stranger celebs have had inexplicable popularity booms in odd places. So it’s *possible* that the kids here would have got as big a thrill as English kids getting a visit from David Beckham. I would however bet my house that they had no idea who the weird looking white lady who breezed through was.

      • LittleDeadGirl says:

        I could see her being popular with adults … maybe … but I just don’t see kids having any interest in her. I could be wrong. I still think it’s mostly a way for her to improve her image and has nothing to do with the kids. I don’t mind her attempt at polishing her reflection but for gods sake have some decency and don’t use orphans …

    Hey Kim,
    I have psoriasis too. I found a dermatologist who put me on a medication and it’s gone!!! I’m sure you can’t take it if you’re pg but after you can. I had it everywhere, arms, legs, butt, ears. I was wearing long pants and long sleeves when it was 100 degrees outside. Don’t have to do it anymore.
