Kim Kardashian loved her $2000 blonde mermaid wig, wants to go blonde now

As we discussed over the weekend, Kim Kardashian dressed up as a really awful version of Darryl Hannah’s mermaid in Splash for a Midori-sponsored Halloween party. Kanye came with Kim to the event, but Kanye did not dress up. People Magazine reported that this busted, trashy-looking blonde wig actually set Kim back $2000. FOR REAL? For that kind of money, Kim Zolciak could assemble 20 of her Barbie wigs. And Zolciak’s wigs look more natural than Kim’s.

Now we also know why Kanye was so interested in hanging out with blonde Kim, by the way. An eyewitness told People Mag, “Even though the group was lively throughout the evening – posing for pictures, dancing, ordering bottles of Midori – Kanye stole a couple of sweet moments with Kim. They kissed a few times and he was rubbing her back. At one point, she whispered something in his ear and his face lit up. Kanye kept bragging to his friends about how beautiful Kim looked. And that he loved her as a blonde!” Oh, ‘Ye. Don’t do it. Don’t encourage her to do it, dude. She’ll go blonde if you tell her to! DO NOT TELL HER TO DO IT. Oh, too late:

If you ask Kim Kardashian, blondes just might have more fun! Channeling Darryl Hannah in 1984′s Splash for her 2012 Halloween costume — a blonde, fishtailed mermaid — the reality star loved her look so much that she tells Us Weekly she might adopt it permanently.

“I would go blond! I think it’s fun, you know? I’m going to keep it on for at least a night and see if it’s true that blonds really have more fun,” Kardashian, 32, told Us Weekly at the Oct. 28 Midori Halloween party she hosted — as part of her duties as the brand’s spokeswoman.

With boyfriend Kanye West on her arm as her captain dressed in naval attire, Kardashian no doubt had a drastically different Halloween 2012 than 2011. Last Oct. 31, the star — currently filming her E! spinoff Kourtney & Kim Take Miami in Florida — filed to divorce husband Kris Humphries. Married for just 72 days, the couple’s divorce drama continues to drag out, and will carry over well into 2013.

“My life has definitely changed a lot in the last year,” reasoned the reality star at Saturday’s bash. “Change is different if you’re not used to it, but I think my life has changed for the better and I’ve become better.”

“I feel more confident and more wise,” continued Kardashian, who has dated longtime family friend West, 35, since March. “It’s like you get to a place and you just know what you want.”

I’m fully expecting dozens of comments about “Why are you talking about her, she’s fat/dumb/boring” etc. But that’s just it, isn’t it? There will be so many comments. Plus, I actually like writing about her. I don’t have to think about it too much. And you know what? I want her divorce from Kris Humphries to come through so Kim and Kanye can actually take this junk to the next level. Because that will be fun too.

    You know Kris will never let her dye her hair blonde. They have a “brand” to protect. In fact, isn’t that the reason that Khloe has super-dark hair even though lighter hair suited her? (Remember when she had the reddish hair last year?)

    I know…I can’t believe I know that either.

    • emmie_a says:

      Yeah I remember they (Kris? MTV?) made Khloe die her hair back to dark brown after she lightened it… But Kim is Kris’s favorite so I’m sure she would let her do it.
      And OMG that looks like a wig from the dollar store I cannot believe it cost $2,000.

    • swack says:

      cmc – you are correct (and yeah, I can’t believe I remember this too). Khloe wanted to go blonde sometime in the past year and mama Kris told her no because they all had dark hair and she needed to keep the dark hair because of the brand. That being said, she wasted $2000 on a horrible wig and should get her money back.

      • Jag says:

        I want to say that Chloe is a natural blonde, or at least significantly lighter hair, if memory serves me. And then agree with the rest of what y’all said.

  2. Gretchen says:

    I’m not really seaing darryl hannah being channeled, but with blonde hair and a few more years of plastic surgery she’ll be able to pass as donatella versace.

  3. hmm says:

    I still dont understand why she wore the corset UNDER the green skirt….? That’s so odd-looking..

  4. dooliloo says:

    That ugly sh*t wig cost $2000??? O_O

    *fighting back ignorant comments*

  5. hmm says:

    And she didn’t try to mermaid up the hair at all… she could have added shells or a starfish or seaweed or something… she just threw on a blonde wig–as if mermaids can only be blonde? Silly.

  6. Bubbling says:

    I love the wig!!! but I’m just wiggy person like that..but daymn 2000, mucho dinero

  7. Des says:

    She looks like Elsa from RHW of Miami.

  8. Hubbahun says:

    It’s the “Change is different if you’re not used to it” that makes it art :P

    • Pamspam says:

      Dammit, I wanted to be the first to comment on that. Beat me to it! :) She’s so profound, that Kim…

  9. LadyMTL says:

    Apparently the reason the wig was so expensive is because it was made with real human hair. Now, I don’t know anything about wigs but shouldn’t it look better than it did if it was real hair? I’ve seen nicer ones in my local costume store!

  10. Joanna says:

    always posing….does she ever stop?

  11. Jenny says:

    I feel sorry for her sometimes. The amount of hate she gets from some people is unbelievable. She is not saint but I don’t think she deserve it. The same people who hate her now not so long time ago helped her to become who she is today.

    • Melanie says:

      I didn’t help. I’ve always hated on her. I know–I shouldn’t have opened the post. Ur right. I shouldn’t have, but seeing KK in a cheap wig and being able to hate on her even more was too tempting. ;(

  12. Kyid says:

    She looks like Cher in that last picture.

    • assistantrachel says:

      What did Cher do to deserve being compared to Katface? :-)

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        NoKidding! I dressed up as Cher for our huge party and studied pics all week. At 32, Cher was so beautiful and funny.

        Do not compare her to this diaper assed girl with the blank expression (and mind).

      • fabgrrl says:

        Cher was sporting long, straight, fake-looking white blond hair for a while. Cher also has the wrong coloring for blond hair. But the comparison stops at the bad hair choice, because Cher is an awesome, talented, beautiful, intelligent lady.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        That is why I qualified my comment with Cher at 32. Gorgeous. She shouldn’t have messed with her face and hair like she did later.

        I went as the early Cher:) Love her, so smart, funny and talented-so unlike KK

      • littlestar says:

        Cher was so beautiful when she was young and still natural. So incredibly beautiful. It’s a shame her and Kim ruined their “exotic” look with fillers and botox.

    • HotPockets says:

      That’s dead on! They both have the same “too much plastic surgery cat faces” going on.

  13. Victoria says:

    Hahaha too funny. I wonder what made Kanye’s face light up?? I want that divorce to come through and this engagement to happen. Come on people it’ll be epic

  14. MonicaQ says:

    …is there a *good* mermaid costume? The only ones I’ve seen be any good really are the ones at Weeki Watchi in FL and that’s because they actually do stuff in them.

    Wig aside, why does she always wear the fake eyelashes? It just makes her look more…fake? It just looks bad in my opinion.

  15. says:

    The wig looks better than Lohan’s real (?) hair. She should donate it to Crackie.

  16. Lindsey says:

    “Change is different if you’re not used to it”

    This chick is simple. Change is change because change. Duh, bitch. DUH!

  17. Quinn Parker says:

    Yep, Kim…change IS different- especially when you’re not used to it! Deep thoughts from one of our country’s finest brains…

  18. Mew says:

    I definitely want her to go blonde. Go blonde Kim go go go! Bleaching that dark hair is going to be totally awesome! Muahahahah!

  19. Kimlee says:

    This is such old new Kim went blonde in 2009 so why are they and we making such a big deal out of it.

  20. MsMileHigh says:

    That wig makes her looks like a *homeless* mermaid. Did Midori actually pay her to be there? Did they ask for a refund? If I paid someone to be somewhere, I’d expect them to look like they had showered at some point that week. She looks stinky.

    I hope she goes blonde so that we can laugh at her for that.

  21. I'm going to Guam! says:

    Maybe a honey blond would suit her better, or some honey blond high lights.
    Platinum makes her look very drag queenish plus she’s fucked up her face with surgery/botox so not much she can do to look good again.
    And Klhoe looked so good with light(er) hair, it’s a shame she dyed it back to dark brown. I’m sorry, but Khloe is not good looking enough to pull off that dark brunette….like I’ve said before; Dark hair puts ALL the focus on the face so you better have gorgeous face! Not many women can pull off dark brown/black hair.
    There’s a reason why older women are advised to go a shade or two lighter once they hit a certain age.

  22. fabgrrl says:

    A fishtailed mermaid? As opposed to the other type of mermaid – with the fish part on top and the lady bits on the bottom?

  23. G. says:

    I’ve seen better, and cheaper, wigs at anime conventions. Ugly, trashy thing.

  24. Lisa says:

    Ugh, conspicuous consumption. I know a lot of people do it, but when it’s ALL you do, it’s extra annoying.

  25. heatheradair says:

    Looks to me like ‘Ye did dress up: he’s a sea captain or something. Which means they kind of match. Which is either really pitiful, or strangely awesome…….

  26. Dominique says:

    Kanye did dress up. He was clearly a boat captain. You can see the hat sitting in his lap.

  27. Lindsey says:

    Do you think either of them are smart enough to realize that Kim’s slutty mer-whore outfit plays to Kanye’s Gayfish past?

  28. Dinah says:

    Well, duh. Who did *not* see this coming?

  29. palermo says:

    I know I waste of lot of time looking at gossip websites, but Lord this woman is just the epitome of a totally useless life.

  30. Grace says:

    She actually looks lovely with that wig. It really brings out her skin and eyes.
    But she needs to hurry up and marry her gay boyfriend so she can have her kids and film her lifestyle before she joins the 35+ weight gain club. Armenian women do not age well.
    Kris looks like that AFTER all of the plastic surgery.

  31. Flora Kitty says:

    That wig is awful. I have better looking wigs than that and I certainly have never spent $2000 for it. I looks like one of those Forever Young wigs.

  32. Ruyana says:

    It’s always the same with her:

    Here’s my T&A in a Halloween costume
    Here’s my T&A in a bikini
    Here’s my T& Especially A in leather pants
    Here’s my T&A in a dress two sizes too small
    Here’s my T&A holding hands with “Ye”
    Here’s my T&A doing a Midori appearance
    Here’s my T&A on the red carpet
    Here’s my T&A on my reality show
    Here’s my T&A and I’m in a blonde wig

  33. tru tru says:

    That media write up MUST be from her mammy Kris, the 2nd pic w/Kanye–he is not smiling, he is looking at her like she is crazy? w/a tinge of disappointment

    like “what?”

    yeah, this is REALLY eternal love, LOL

    she looks like a clown!!

    thanks Ye, THANKS!! I have never laughed so hard, LOL

  34. CrreamSoda says:

    Can’t believe Kanye’s actually smiling in one of the pics.

  35. Yaaawwwn says:

    I’ve never seen a dark brown-eyed, naturally brunette woman who looks good/better with blonde hair. She’s no exception.

  36. Madriani's Girl says:

    That wig is more beat than paris Hilton’s meat wallet. $2000 for THAT?????

  37. Meaghan says:

    Kanye did dress up, as a sailor, it was a matching costume!

  38. d b says:

    Why is that no matter what she wears Kim always looks such a wrinkly ill-fitted mess? Her clothing screams cheap slattern, and at half-off prices at that.

  39. Ben says:

    Here’s some breaking news. NOBODY CARES!

  40. Maxx says:

    Please wear the wig all the time…. but turned around covering her jacked face

  41. MJsinAustin says:

    somebody please make it go away -

  42. Ming Lee says:

    ahhh that wig! WOOF. why not tone it so it looks like the wig is trying to suit her skin tone..but then i see the orange streaks so maybe the team was confused on her actual skin tone.

    the usual kim, wearing something that doesn’t suit her because she’s trying to be something else..squeezing into too tight outfits made for a model and now blonde.

  43. Kristin says:

    She looks more like Amber Rose with the blonde wig.. if Amber grew her hair out and dyed it blonde that’s what I imagine she would look like..

  44. Helen says:

    I really want know where she bought her wig???
