Kim Kardashian posted this ^^ photo on her Instagram today. I guess we’re supposed to think, “OMG, Kim is just like Elizabeth Taylor!” Elizabeth was married like eight or nine times, and Kim has been married twice. Elizabeth received some of the most famous jewelry in the world – Kim has received a few nice pieces from Lorraine Schwartz. Elizabeth was an Oscar-winning actress at the top of her game for decades, who then devoted herself to decades of activism and HIV/AIDS causes. Kim… has a reality show. Elizabeth was the height of scandal, controversy, public sympathy and media attention. Kim… just starred in “Bound 2”.
To be fair to Kim (I guess), she did meet Elizabeth back in 2011. Elizabeth invited Kim into her home and Kim interviewed Elizabeth for Harper’s Bazaar. I think Elizabeth sort of liked her. Which is nice and I would be dining out on that if it was me, but let’s be clear – just because Elizabeth was nice to Kim, that doesn’t give Kim any right to actively pursue the comparisons. Just the fact that Kim is trying to act like her Lorraine Schwartz diamond from Yeezus is somehow the same as The Krupp Diamond is flat-out blasphemous.
Also – The Daily Mail has some new photos of Kim and Kanye’s Bel Air mansion – you can see them here. I think Kim and Kanye wanted to move in next year, but it looks like the place has been totally gutted. It’s probably going to be a while until they move in. Where are they even staying nowadays? Are they still with Lucifer’s Homegirl?
