Kim Kardashian got one thousand roses from Kanye West for V-Day: wasteful?


Do you know how I spent my Valentine’s Day? I dug myself out of more than a foot of snow, the same double-punch storm that pretty much closed down the mid-Atlantic and northeast last week. And I was sore all weekend (that snow was HEAVY). Do you know how Kim Kardashian spent her V-Day? By basking in the loving embrace of Yeezington. Yeezington showered (heh) Kim in ONE THOUSAND ROSES for V-Day. Meanwhile, no grocery store in my area has any bananas. Why is there a banana drought?!

Kim posted two photos of the roses on her Instagram. I think the one where she’s on her back with the roses is pretty cheeseball – it looks like a p0rn video, which… hey, maybe Kim and Kanye shot a p0rn0 on Valentine’s Day. Just as well. There are a lot of people complaining about the “waste” of buying 1000 roses for one person when certainly one bouquet would have done the trick. I don’t know… if we’re going to have a conversation about wasteful behavior, saying something about Kanye’s 1000 roses seems like a weird place to start. But sure, it’s wasteful. These are the people who are going to wear crowns for their wedding though.

Meanwhile, Radar had a story about Yeezington “raging” at Kim for being fake on her reality show. Apparently, he’s tried of Kim’s reality-show portrayal of a “materialistic, judgmental monster.” Well… if the reality show fits…

PS… Yeezington remixed Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love” and it’s pretty explicit. Blah. You can hear the remix here.

    The only thing I really noticed was she photoshopped the heck out of her body lying on the bed.If she is as proud of her “curve’s” as she say’s wouldn’t feel the need to do that.

  2. Carolin says:

    They are just so boring that he probably gave her 1,000 roses so he could boast about it.

    • SonjaMarmeladova says:

      I saw the last KUWTK episode because I wanted to see the proposal. He seemed really into her and she didn’t even look excited. I think he really loves her.

      • Tracy says:

        Not sure she is able to form an excited face anymore. 😉

      • FLORC says:

        They probably filmed it serveral times. Her last proposal was staged as well. Maybe it was all one take, but still scripted.

      • Dani says:

        Ye has been in love with her for at least 5-6 years. There’s pictures years back where he’s with them at fashion shows and she’s hanging off of Reggie Bush and all you see is Kanye staring at her like he wants to cry. Also way back (I want to say 09?) when they opened Dash NYC for the first time, while still in production he stopped by the store and gave his opinions, all while looking like a lost puppy after Kim. Safe to say he’s been obsessed with her for years.

    • Jenna says:

      Nothing says true love more than wasteful consumerism.

    • idk says:

      Did you see on twitter, she posted a pic of the ring and wrote “dreams really do come true”. I’m pretty sure she said the same thing after Kris H. proposed.

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      Those roses are going to die because they are in her care. They are going to die anyways. But the lifespan on those roses just when to zero. Expect a tweet from Kim later today about how she was allergic and had to put them in the garbage disposal.

      • idk says:

        I’m surprised she didn’t tweet where the roses came from so that they would be free in exchange for publicity for the shop. Isn’t this the reason Kanye allowed the proposal to be on the show…so he didn’t have to pay to rent out the ballpark?

      • Sacred And Profane says:

        Well, Dommy Dearest, when they do die, do you think there is any hope of Kimmie being a little charitable and donating one of those vases to me? I’ve got the just spot for one. Here’s hoping….

  3. Lindy says:

    I think the 1000 roses had nothing to do with impressing Kim and everything to do with impressing the public.

    Why is she lying in that odd position?

    • Mouse says:

      My guess she either a. Thought it made her look thinner b. now knows the optimal pose for photoshopping

      • Liberty says:

        Hahha I read this too quickly and thought you wrote “My guess she had a Thought and it made her [fall over]”

        12 roses for Kim, 988 for North.

    • tifzlan says:

      That’s her default setting, Lindy!

    • Kris says:

      They are like your Facebook friends who you KNOW are unhappy in their relationship but insist on broadcasting that they are so, so happy! See, look how in love we are! Stars really are just like us! 🙂

      • idk says:

        Agreed ! Also, didn’t she say her house won’t be ready until late August or something? Yet, they are planning to get married in May/June. So they’ll be married and still living with PMK? Kim is showing a pattern here. After she got married to Kris H. they both lived with Kourtney and Scott in NYC until Kim filed for divorce…could the same happen again but with Kanye?

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Why is she still living with her mom? Doesn’t Kanye have his own house/apartment? Dang–if I had as much money as KimmyK, I’d be out of that house as quick as I could.

      • idk says:

        @ Virgilia Coriolanus

        He has a bachelor pad in LA that is up for sale (he helped decorate it, and wow it is very tacky and is probably the reason it’s not selling). They could be living in it for the time being but they said it’s not “private” enough for them. That’s funny considering Kim has a camera crew following her around almost 24/7 and tweets/instagrams her every move. I think she’s afraid of living with a man. She did this with Kris Humphries too.

      • gefeylich says:

        Meanwhile Kanye is screaming at her because of her fake, materialistic persona on TV. Hilarious, because 1) pot, meet kettle, and 2) OMG he’s just noticing this NOW?

        After the wedding with all the crowns and scepters and ermine cloaks and jewel-encrusted gold thrones, etc., their actual marriage will probably last a month shorter than Kartrashian’s marriage to Humphries. Place your bets now.

  4. kibbles says:

    Everything these celebrities do in their daily lives is wasteful. In comparison to everything else, I don’t see the big deal over buying a thousand roses. West can clearly afford it and it’s a nice gesture on Valentine’s Day. This isn’t nearly as bad as Kim’s shopping sprees, her $10 million wedding to Kris Humphries, or the royal wedding she is planning with West.

  5. Amelia says:

    Maybe it’s just me, but I thought 1000 roses would have looked more impressive.
    I’m somewhat underwhelmed.
    Unless they’ve been split into two photos, but still. Maybe it’s just as well I was single over Valentine’s day, I sound like a really, picky bitch!

    • aang says:

      you are right. does not look like what i thought 1000 roses would look like. hope she donated them to hospital or something after the photos.

    • allons-y alonso says:

      My dear Amelia!
      Being single on Valentine’s Day is the best. My relationship with me has never been stronger 😉 That, and a whole lot of chocolate goes on sale the very next day

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        Hooray for discount chocolate!!

      • mojoman says:

        I agree! although I am married for 10 years but I INSIST my hubby not to buy me flowers/chocolates and inflated dinner prices on that day. I am sorry to say, V-day is grossly commercialized. Professing your love and affection doesn’t have to be magnified on that day only. I will take “I love you with a kiss” before you start your day every day!

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        @mojoman – Bless you! I was starting to think I was the only one that found V Day overrated and unnecessary. My partner would be permanently off the hook from having to do anything “special” on V Day.

    • LadyMTL says:

      I thought the same thing about the flowers, it really doesn’t look like there are 1000 of them there. Ah well, I don’t even like roses (the smell is too strong for me) so it’s not like I’m jealous. And there is nothing wrong with being single on the 14th! It’s a manufactured holiday in any case…my bf – who lives in the UK right now – and I just Skype and that’s it. No presents or flowers or whatnot.

      As long as you’re happy, that’s what matters.

      • Lucinda says:

        I think the problem is they are all the same color so it’s kind of boring. If there were multiple colors to create depth, it would look more impressive and much prettier in my mind.

    • Amelia says:

      Who needs men when you have Celebitches and Thornfield? <3

    • gg says:

      More than a dozen or two roses always looks unimpressive, because there are only so many roses you can cram into a vase, only so many vases you can cram onto a table, and then you have to cover every other surface, so it winds up looking like a flower warehouse and just being in the way. Course, Kanye only did it to be able to say he gave his cow a thousand roses and that’s how much he loves her. It’s all about being the *greatest* with him.

      • FLORC says:

        With the exception of you calling another person a cow (unless it’s in the affectionate way) I agree with you. It’s a grand gesture mostly for him. IMO very much like JayZ and Bey. They do it because they can. Not because it’s a way to express their love. That’s for the tricks on the side.

      • gg says:

        Anytime I call somebody a cow, it has nothing to do with being fat or looking like a cow, my use is as: silly cow, i.e., silly girl.

  6. Josephine says:

    The roses, the crowns, the inappropriate clothes, the douchey selfies, the douchey behavior – this family is just trolling for exposure, and we’re giving it to them. I had thought Kayne was a real musician, but turns out that he’s a reality wh*re like the rest of them. The Kardashians have nothing else going for them, but what’s his excuse? I’m done commenting on these people. If we really want them gone, we’ll stop being affected by their despicable behavior, and turn away.

  7. DailyNightly says:

    I wonder if that is her “assume the position” pose when Kanye comes over?

    • Secret Squirrel says:

      Hmmmmmm, good point. Its the same pose as on the bike in “that” video clip! Nicely spotted DailyNightly.

  8. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Typical. More is better. The more he spends, the more he loves you. Ugh, these people are just hopeless.

  9. blue marie says:

    Her weird hairline continues to freak me out. Anyway, when did her legs get so small?
    Whatever, this family is nothing but wasteful, typical day in the land of Kardashian.

    • bluhare says:

      Her legs got that small when she told her photoshopper to shrink her 20%. She’s got to have one so she can tell us all she doesn’t Photoshop her photos with a straight face.

    • Nina W says:

      I know she had her hairline lasered but I recently saw an unfortunately magnified image of her in direct sunlight and her make-up was troweled on an inch thick and she was clearly wearing a wig. I think she wears one a lot and it looks a little off.

  10. Samantha25 says:

    Jason Derulo supposedly bought Jordnin Sparks 10,000 roses. Personally I don’t see the point in flowers. They’re going to die in a couple of days. Also red roses are so cliché. Just once i would like somebody to give yellow roses or tulips.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      I read that too…Kanye must be pissed that DeRulo won the war of the roses!!!

    • swack says:

      I don’t particularly like roses and would rather get them some other time than Valentine’s Day. My ex used to send them to my work when I was having bad days – and not roses. My mom always said when she died to go out into the fields and pick the daisies to put on her coffin, so she has a splay of gerber daisies that was much more beautiful than any rose splay I ever saw.

    • Francesca says:

      That is what I love about flowers… Enjoy them for a little while, then into the compost! Nothing to have to keep forever or clutter up the house with!

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      That’s why my mom doesn’t like roses–because they die within a few days. She prefers that we buy her a rose bush, something she can plant.

    • Christin says:

      Roses last less time than most any other cut flower. This is just an expensive case of “show-off flowers”. It is really no indication of the depth of their devotion, IMO.

    • DK says:

      I think Jordin donated most of her roses to the hotel staff and other guests, at least.

    • Miffy says:

      Flowers are essentially plant vaginas, roses are the most clichéd plant vaginas going, they are also the shortest living plant vaginas.

      Cliché vaginas with no real longevity… I think it sums up Kim Kardashian beautifully. Well played, Yeezington, well played.

  11. Original Tessa says:

    Opposite of wasteful. I’m in the business. The growers grew the roses for the specific purpose of being cut for Valentine’s Day. Thousands upon thousands will go unsold. These thousand had a life outside of the grow house and the wholesaler, and they were paid for at the retail level. They’re not wasted at all.

    • gg says:

      They are wasted on one person. They would be better used by handing out roses to every passer by on the street than cramming them all into one small room where they won’t get displayed properly or appreciated. The thing about roses is *less is more*.

      • Belle Epoch says:

        Wouldn’t that have been incredible if KK had given everyone on the street a rose? A single rose is really more wonderful than 1,000 but these poor deluded materialistic rocks-for-brains don’t understand the concept of “less is more.”

        The couch picture is a failure. I don’t know what she was going for, but it looks like she’s exercising. Plus it looks dark and stuffy. Ew.

      • Original Tessa says:

        Well, ok, but that’s sort of besides the point I was making, isn’t it? And why is it up to Kanye to make sure people on the street have roses? I never understand this argument that when really rich people actually spend their money rather than letting it sit in the bank they are somehow wasting it. They’re putting it out into the world, and people like us benefit. I would have loved to have a customer go a full ten dozen this year. That would have been huge on an otherwise pretty humdrum sales day on the east coast with the weather. It would have really helped me.

      • Francesca says:

        @originaltessa… Spoken like a business owner. Love it!

      • gg says:

        Belle, I also think a single rose is far more beautiful than a massive pile of them.

        Tessa, it was only an example of what one person with an actual good reason to buy that many roses could do, and put them to maximum use, as in sharing them with people and making them smile. I would never expect someone as shallow as Kanye to give strangers roses in a million years. I had a lovely boss who did this often, though, and the joy it spread was amazing and it has inspired me ever since.

        I understand your point, that as a retailer you want to just sell as many as you can, but I was making another one as to what 1 person would need that many roses for after they leave the shop. As it is, what he did with them was in my opinion, not even attractive. It was merely submitted as a boastful show of excess, as he is so famous for.

      • Katnip says:

        How about giving roses to the women in a shelter for battered women? I really think they would have appreciated a little love on Valentine’s Day

    • Miss Jupitero says:

      I worked for a florist once who gave me all of the unsold rises after Valentines Day to take home. I scattered them all over everything. I hasa carpet of fresh petals.

    • itstrue says:

      I came to say much the same thing, I managed a tanning salon next to a flower shop and the dumpster was always full of flowers. So if they hadn’t sold, they’d end up in the dump. Better to have been profitable for someone.

    • littlestar says:

      Well said Tessa and couldn’t agree with you more! I used to work for a florist in high school and people don’t really buy flowers for other people that often. Flowers sold were mostly for weddings and funerals.

  12. Quinn says:

    That manages to be about the most annoyingly boring gift EVER. Perfect!

  13. Blue says:

    Red Roses, how original.

  14. epiphany says:

    Yes, but Riccardo got 1001!

  15. Miss Jupitero says:

    If you are going to have that many roses, they should be scattered underfoot and trampled to release their scent, assuming this kind if rose even has a worthy scent. (I worked for a florist once and am familiar with this variety of tepid, thornless, factory farmed genetically engineered rose, which sacrifices scents for the uniform shape and long stem). In ancient Roman orgies, people would literally drown in rose petals. I’d say these guys need to ramp things up a bit. Come on Kim, if you are going to be a latter day Zsa Zsa Gabor, you’ve got to mean it. Now a thousand REAL roses flown in from Bulgaria or Turkey? Now we’re talking.

  16. Miss Jupitero says:

    Addendum: And why stop there? Bring on the Ciccolina films, the naked twister games, and the meat pies. Think of the photo op!

  17. qtpi says:

    I guess he loves her more then my guy loves me! Lucky girl!

  18. Melissabee says:

    Where is her baby?? Why can’t her baby be the love of her/their life/lives on Valentine’s Day? It makes me shake my head. Just remember, Kim: You reap what you sow. If you are not important to your child later in life, after all of it has disappeared, the fame, looks, money, etc, just remember where you out your priorities when she was a baby.

    • Algernon says:

      I can’t believe I’m going to defend a Kardashian, but… Can’t they have one day their kid isn’t the central focus of everything? Kids take/need/deserve a lot of attention, but parents still need time to be themselves, without their kids. Valentine’s Day seems like a natural time to celebrate your relationship with each other, sans kid.

  19. hotnerd says:

    I doubt there are 1,000 roses crammed into the 8 or so vases shown in the pics. Even assuming Kim can count that high, this seems like more like the usual Kardashian hyperbole rather than a literal count of the flowers. They are gorgeous though.

  20. Beth says:

    In the first picture, the lights are on but nobody is home.

  21. umyeah says:

    It’s funny because Jason derulo got Jordin sparks 10,000 roses for her. Orange roses because they’re her favorite color. First thought was, oh man, kanye must have been pissed to be outdone. Second thought, oh that’s so cute. It’s cute when jordin receives them. Dumb when Kim does. Btw, jordin distributed the roses to workers at the hotel they were staying at. Kim would never do this. There’s the difference.

  22. Nicolette says:

    You know, if this was a genuine love I’d say how romantic. But this three ring circus is as fake as anything else with the name Kardashian attached to it.

  23. Nerd Alert says:

    LOL that bed pic is soooo photoshopped. Just so obvious.

    Also? Beyonce’s Drunk and In Love song is like the worst thing ever. Someone needs to tell her to stop braying like a donkey and start singing again.

  24. silly you says:

    ugh. when these two do something that *isn’t* stupid, ridiculous, and designed to generate publicity, please be sure to let us know.

  25. idk says:

    All she does is brag. What would she do if instagram and twitter didn’t exist? Would she not exist?

    Also, Kanye’s verse on the remix is disgusting. Are you telling me Kim is proud of that? So he hates how Kim gets portrayed on their show, but then he puts out a disgusting verse like that about her? Hypocrite…well they both are.

  26. Meggin says:

    They are both beyond ridiculous. Kim needs to just disappear. She’s a terrible person who just brags nonstop. How she is not humiliated by being on her third wedding is beyond me.

  27. Dommy Dearest says:

    I don’t know about you ladies but I LOVE it when my other boasts about what he gets me for gifts and Valentine’s Day. Needs to let everyone know how much he loves me. Forget being humble and just giving it to me. If it’s not on twitter, instagram, and facebook then I just can’t accept it.


  28. TG says:

    1,000 roses means he is compensating for something. People who do over-the-top gifting and gestures like Kanye are compensating for something. And those who receives these over-the-top gifts and gestures and post them to the world are compensating for something. I don’t know anyone who would feel the slightest bit of envy at seeing Kim’s posts. They remind me of the show on TLC “Lottery Changed My Life”. Everything they do is super tacky and shows how low-class they are. Everything they do is 100% predictable. You might not have guess what name they were going to choose to name their child but you knew that it would be something stupid and that it would be about THEM not the child. You might not have known what dress(s) Kim was going to wear for her wedding to Kris but you knew it/thew would be tacky as heck. You know if they ever move into this new home it will be tacky as well. No doubts about that. Everything about Kim and Kanye is tacky and tasteless. You know her third wedding will be tacky and tasteless.

    • idk says:

      There will be a whole episode of their reality show just based on her new home (if she ever moves in). She has to brag about it. They aren’t (oops I mean Kanye isn’t) spending all that time and money on a house just for their own pleasure. This couple has to brag about their material wealth. It’s what they do best.

      • gg says:

        Because a gold toilet and marble columns don’t really give the warm fuzzies, they just sit there looking stupid – but all your friends and your tacky family going oooooohhhh, a gooold toooooileeettt!, you are sooooo riiiiich and over-the-top – that darn Kanye, he always gets the best of everything … provides a boost for the insecurity that embodies this couple.

        But then, of course after the novelty wears off, that gold twallette and other excesses don’t really pay off.

  29. CC says:

    It IS wasteful. but hey, glass half full, at least someone else reaped the benefits (the florist). The roses were groomed to be picked off anyway.

    • idk says:

      I’m surprised he didn’t have them painted with gold first. You know they have to be the best roses OF ALL TIME.

  30. lucy says:

    Kanye is a master of understatement.

  31. JudyK says:

    First thing I noticed…looking at herself in her rear view mirror.

  32. rlh says:

    Re: ” it looks like a p0rn video”
    That’s what made her famous!

  33. Shan1983 says:

    Those flowers everywhere would be incredibly annoying. Think about it – every surface covered, everywhere you look… I feel claustrophobic just thinking about it.

  34. IceQueen says:

    It’s sweet..Whatever…

    What the f*ck is she doing to her face?

  35. Norman says:

    1000 roses and no red Ferrari F12berlinetta, what the hell ha ha. You have grand statements and you have Kimye grand statements.

  36. Deedles says:

    Nothing says “I’ve got to convince everybody that I’m straight” like 1,000 roses to your beloved.

  37. MSat says:

    This is all gonna be so embarrassing when they have their “Very Special Breakup” episode of KUWTK.

  38. DrFunkenstein says:

    LOL Yes, of course it’s wasteful. But when this “genius” is broke in a couple of years, we’ll all look back at this and laugh. Oh wait — we’re laughing NOW! Never mind.
