Kim Kardashian went out to lunch with friends & made North sit at another table

Kim Kardashian, Jonathan Cheban, and Larsa Pippen grab lunch together

As we’ve seen, Kim Kardashian has been in Miami for the past few weeks. She’s made a big deal about how she’s hanging with her “OG Miami crew,” a crew which includes Jonathan “Foodgod” Cheban and Larsa Pippen. Kanye has also been around, although I don’t think he’s been in Miami with Kim the entire time. Kim also has her kids with her, but North is really the only one who has been photographed out with her mom consistently. North is 5 years old, and she lunches in Miami with her mom and her mom’s friends. Except mommy won’t let her sit at the same table.

Kim Kardashian raised eyebrows over the weekend by dining at fancy Miami restaurant Carpaccio, while her daughter and nanny sat at a separate table.

A spy who posted about it online said “#sad.”

But sources close to Kardashian tell us that 5-year-old North was lunching sans mom because Kardashian was being followed by a videographer and she didn’t want North in the shot, lest the footage end up on TV. (However, North appears frequently on the family’s reality show.)

[From Page Six]

This IS sad. It’s just a sad story all-around, and I don’t believe the explanation that Kim didn’t want the videographer to have footage of North. Presumably, the videographer was either part of the KUWTK crew or someone employed by Kim herself. Surely the better solution is sitting with your daughter and merely editing out the footage which includes North? Also: North was getting pap’d this entire trip! It says something about Kim’s priorities and how she sees her children as her accessories.

    That outfit is terrible, looks like something a country singer would have worn in the 90s. And who’s that guy with her? He looks way to be old to be dressing like a 15 year old boy

    • Aephra says:

      Might be the ‘Foodgod’ himself?

    • Lightpurple says:

      Although a 90s country singer probably would have tried to cover her visible nipples

      • Nancy says:

        It wouldn’t be Kim if she weren’t exposing some part of her body. She is an exhibitionist. Not a newsflash but IMO, she’s pretty classless.

    • Kitten says:

      He looks like he’s wearing one of Jon Gosselin’s old t-shirts.

      That Ed Hardy crap was one was of the worst things to happen to LA fashion. I almost want to high five Gosselin for effectively killing it forever and sparing us from future decades of skulls, roses, and snakes over a tie dye background.

      • Missy says:

        Haha that’s what I was going to say first but I wasn’t sure if anybody even remembered that. Jon gosselin was the worst

      • Trillion says:

        I thank that French guy that bought Ed Hardy’s name for making it easy for us to spot the douche.

      • Kristen820 says:

        Pretty sure that’s a Grateful Dead tee. Not a good one, mind you…

      • Mel says:

        Amen to all that though I’m pretty sure Ed Hardy died when Christian Audigier (French dude) actually died a few years ago…

      • whatWHAT? says:

        nah, that’s a GD shirt.

        they were doing skulls and roses WAY BEFORE Ed Hardy.

    • Nancy says:

      Jonathan Cheban. Her bff for years. Wish I didn’t know that.

      • ME says:

        Jonathan seems like such a b*tchy full of himself type of a$$hole. The fact Kim is best friends with him says A LOT about the type of person she is. Also, where is Kanye? Do his kids ever see him?

  2. Snowflake says:

    Her poor kids

  3. cora says:

    No problem about sitting the little ones apart, but that outfit is a different story.

    • Kristen820 says:

      Agreed – And I can’t help but wonder if she *wanted* to sit at a separate table? North is at an age where she likely wants to assert some independence, and has been very scared by the paps in the past. No Kim apologist, but there may be another explanation…

      • ME says:

        So was the nanny going to sit alone at a table then? I’m guessing the decision was made far in advance that North would be sitting at a separate table with the nanny. It’s just funny because they made sure Kim, Jonathan, and North got pap’d together before entering the restaurant. I wonder how it all goes down…the amount of planning just for a f*cking pap pick. The poor nanny is probably yards away while pics are being taken lol.

    • Noodles says:

      My eldest often sits at a different table, entirely though his own choice and sometimes his brothers do the same. I have to admit, I quite like the peace and I think so does he, from hearing mum talk. We don’t know the reason behind North sitting separately so we probably shouldn’t judge.

      • jwoolman says:

        Noodles – a friend said that once her oldest hit his teens, he agreed to go with the family to movies solely on the condition that he could sit far, far away from them….

    • jwoolman says:

      Yes, it would have been boring being around the grownups. With her nanny, she could relax and have a good time. She got to walk with her mom before and after and possibly if the video cameras went away. Kim was working, her kid was just in daycare on site.

  4. RBC says:

    Can we also discuss Kim’s yellow hair in that one photo?

  5. Tw says:

    Plus there is 100% humidity in Miami in August. Does the cut and fabric of North’s dress seem comfortable?

    • Missy says:

      I doubt swamp ass cares if the kid is comfortable or not, it’s about the look right

      • jwoolman says:

        I get the feeling that Kim and her sisters dress for the indoors environment, not the outdoors, because they are only briefly in the outdoors going from their cars to the air-conditioned buildings. So Nori was probably fine.

    • Lady D says:

      What does 100% humidity feel like? Serious question because it’s not part of my weather pattern. Right now humidity around here is between 12-15% because we are in the middle of several raging wildfires. (worst air pollution in the world right now) I’ve been told that a high humidity count makes it feel as if there is a heavy wet wool blanket sitting on your chest in 100F sun. I understand that there is also a lot of humidity in the south part of the US?

      • Person3514 says:

        @lady d

        That is exactly what it feels like. I imagine it is what a sauna feels like. You can feel the moisture sticking to you and it’s hot, heavy and gross. I can’t stand it.

      • BeanieBean says:

        Yes, the heavy wool blanket feeling is apt—a wet heavy wool blanket. And you’re trying to breathe through it. You can actually see the air when it’s 100% humidity.

      • Pandabird says:

        Yep, that’s exactly what it feels like. You’ll feel sticky as soon as you step outside. When we were in Dubai last August, we were struggling to breath as soon as we stepped outside the airport because our bodies were not acclimated to the weather.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Sweat cools a person because the process of evaporation makes your skin cooler. In high humidity, it doesn’t allow sweat to evaporate, so you don’t cool down. It is like having a wet towel wrapped around your whole body and it is suffocating. Makes my skin look fantastic, though. Hair not so much!

      • paranormalgirl says:

        It makes my hair scary.

      • K says:

        Lady D are you in Seattle too??

  6. Beth says:

    That’s an ugly outfit! Did she get dressed in the dark and not look in a mirror?

  7. Veronica S. says:

    The outfit is terrible, but I’m fine with the kid sitting at another table with the nanny. Sometimes, adult conversations are too mature and/or significant enough that you don’t want the interruptions of a child. As long as she was entertained, cared for, and fed, I don’t see the problem. Rich people have always paid others to raise their kids.

    • Swack says:

      But then why take her out to lunch/dinner if you’re just going to put her at another table? Again, if you’re afraid of the child interrupting your conversation then either don’t take the child or leave that conversation for another place and time. JMO.

      • Veronica S. says:

        You’re thinking like a “peasant.” To people with this kind of money, children aren’t considered a full time burden but an entity that can be dealt with when and if desired. My friend was a nanny for a pair of doctors. They probably spent more time with their kids than some, but she was definitely doing the heavy lifting for the first couple of years. They paid well, thankfully, but she would even go on vacations with them – because what parent wants their “relaxation” impacted by a temper tantrum? Remember that in the older days of some cultures, noblewomen didn’t even nurse their own children – they had wetnurses for that. They were too busy running the estate to care for an infant.

      • Elena says:


  8. Sigh... says:

    So why not just leave North with her bro & sis (& preferred nanny)? Cuz if the lunch is being filmed, it ain’t about eating or even bonding with your daughter, so let her hair stay in an adorable curly bun, no costume-y outfits, and run around with her sibs. You know, like KIDS, not co-stars.

    • Mel M says:

      Exactly, sure she could’ve been filming and not wanted her on film, sure adult conversations are for adults, so then just leave her at home with her siblings instead of getting her all dressed up just to get papp shots of them walking in together. That’s all this really looks like.

  9. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    She used to have such an enviable figure before all the body modification. Now it’s just weird looking.

  10. ME says:

    Of course it’s sad. These kids spend more time with their nannies than anyone else. She uses her kids for photo ops when necessary, allows them on her reality show, but now all of a sudden North has to sit at a different table because Kim is “filming”. Please. Also makes me wonder how far back the nanny has to walk when Kim and North are being pap’d. You never even get a glimpse of any nanny but they are always there.

    • Pandy says:

      Yes to all this. All these kids are props to the “work”. And that outfit … OUCH. As someone else posted, at least cover your nipples. The epitome of klass.

  11. Nicegirl says:

    Adult conversations are for adults, so I have separated my kids from grown ups too at times. Not sure this is why North was seated away though as that was not the reason Kim gave, so ??? Would have been an easy answer.

  12. Ang says:

    This is not shocking to me, I don’t think she’s that grand of a mother, her children are acceories to her and Kanye, Kourtney is a real mother to her children, Kim is just gross to me she is so fascinated with her own self it’s disturbing. Her clothes look like the porn star that she is.

  13. HelloSunshine says:

    North looks so uncomfortable in these pictures :(
    What was the point of bringing North and a nanny to lunch then? Like someone else said, why not leave her with the other kids? Or have the nanny take her to do something fun and kid friendly? It almost feels like a mean girl move to bring your daughter to a restaurant and then not let her sit with you.

    • jwoolman says:

      Maybe Nori was asked it she wanted to stay home or come along, even though she would be at a separate table while mom was working. She would have been causing trouble if she were unhappy about the setup, yes? Maybe she wanted to get away from the younger siblings for a while….. :)

    • Naomi11 says:

      It is a mean girl move, but I tend to think it’s more of a “look at me, look at me” kind of move.

  14. Snap Happy says:

    Kim has 3 small children. If she wants a meal sans kids I don’t see a problem. She didn’t put North at a table by herself. About the videographer, a parent always controls how much a child is exposed. My daughter was a baby model for about 2 years and had some big campaigns. I still felt the right to limit her exposure on family and friend’s FB pages. I have no idea what kind of mother Kim is and I’m sure she does use her kids as part of her image, but she gets to call the shots when she wants to protect her kid.

    • Naomi11 says:

      And no doubt she’s also the one who calls the paps to come and take her pictures. She isn’t protecting anyone. She loves the attention whether it be good or bad, the chick just loves the attention.

  15. Amelie says:

    I don’t really judge her for making her daughter sit at another table with the nanny (though I find it very strange) as much as I judge her for exposing her poor daughter to the vile human being known as Jonathan Cheban. You are the company you keep.

    Also that outfit Kim is wearing is so tragic on so many levels, I cannot comprehend what I’m even seeing. And her extensions are scraggly and look awful. If you’re going to have hair that long, you need to maintain it.

    The only good thing about these photos is North in her little cheongsam outfit (is that what you call it?). It’s cute.

  16. Beth says:

    I have no kids, but when I was a child, I sometimes was seated at a different table away from my mother and the adults. Probably would’ve been boring sitting with grown-ups while they had conversations I wasn’t part of

  17. Blu_bb says:

    It’d be hilarious if North was the one that didn’t want to sit with Kim. Doubtful though, poor kid.

  18. cannibell says:

    I’m imagining snakes holding picket signs….

  19. Nancy says:

    Was at a costume party over the weekend. The kids had their own table and loved it. It had to be for filming purposes. I still say that Northwest thinks Kim is the chick that is married to Kanye West. She is going to grow up all kinds of confused and I see counseling in her future, right along with the other spawn of this creepy af family.

  20. Caty says:

    Sincere question: are there any fathers society scrutinizes as closely as the Kardashian women?

    Maybe Kim wanted to spend the day with her daughter but take a lunch break with adults. I didn’t think kids sitting apart from adults was a huge social faux pas, especially when there’s adult supervision. And as others have stated, Kim SHOULD get to choose when her daughter is on camera. It’s not as if some access means she’s comfortable with unlimited camera time.

    Maybe Kim’s a great mom, maybe she’s not. We don’t know their intimate dynamics. And even if we think we do because of KWTK, Kanye isn’t getting flack for not being around her for DAYS, let alone a lunch. The double standards and unattainable perfection expected from mothers is exhausting.

    • Ge says:

      So well said @Caty
      This is all so judgemental and severe. Asserting she’s a bad mother based on this only is really not accurate.
      Maybe she is, maybe not. Maybe she makes mistakes like every single one of us.
      I’m a frequent reader Celebitchy and I often read comments or posts describing how poorly men treat women, speak about us …
      But honestly, when I read things like this, my first thought is we don’t need them to mistreat us, we do it very well.
      And that is SAD.

    • Nancy says:

      I wouldn’t feel too sorry for her. For all of the critiques she receives, she gets more adoration from her fans, which must be quite a few considering they’re filming their 16th season. BTW, her daughter is onscreen all the time and between her, her sisters and mother is ig’d on a regular.

  21. MoGrianach says:

    Are we sure that Nori didn’t beg for a table away from her mother and her outfit?

  22. Grey says:

    If I was North (UGH THAT NAME!!!), I would not want to sit with fools dressed like THAT.

    I’m sure Cheban is a HUUUUGE Grateful Dead fan.

  23. StoryMummy says:

    My thoughts in this:

    - I hope North writes a Mommy Dearest-type tell-all. From the pics we have seen of North as a baby, she’s more familiar with her nanny/nannies than she is with her so-called
    Mother. North only ever looks happy when she’s with her cousins, kids her own age. You never see her laughing and smiling in her mom’s company. Kim only had these kids to extend her “career” and also to get child support from Kanye when she inevitably dumps him.

    - kim’s Body looks ridiculous and disproportionate. We know she didn’t originally look like that! It’s her fetishizing and making a caricature of black women’s bodies

  24. sommolierlady says:

    North is a pretty child. We were often sat at separate tables while the adults conversed. Not that big a deal but I do doubt North is having anything close to a normal, happy childhood.

  25. Mel says:

    Then why not leave North and the Nanny at home /hotel so they can chill and do what they want while Kimmycakes goes about her business?

    • Itteh Bitteh says:

      I hate that I’m even commenting on this post, but no one seems to have considered that maybe North -asked- to go to lunch with her mom instead of “staying home with the other kids.”

      • ME says:

        Well if your 5 year old daughter asks to have lunch with you, shouldn’t you both sit at the same table and eat together lol?

    • Because Kim wanted the paps getting shots of her with North outside the restaurant. IMO they all exploit their children, except for Kourtney. They use their kids for attention, it’s disgusting.

      • Naomi11 says:

        No Kourtney just takes pics with her then b’friend, so she could exploit and famewh*re herself like her whole family does

  26. S says:

    All I can think is that at some point those two adult humans looked at one another and sincerely thought/said, ‘Damn, we look good!’ … Which pretty much explains everything else you need to know.

  27. Mrs. Peel says:

    White trash + cash = Kim.

  28. markweer says:

    Some people on here maybe have hit upon something. Kim may not have wanted her daughter around adult conversations. I am single with no kids and I am not around kids very much and I tend to curse and use adult language A LOT. A few of my friends have been very careful about having their kids around me (my feeling hurt a little), but I am aware that I CUSS frequently. It may be the same with this Cheban guy or most of her friends

  29. CK says:

    I feel like we’d be running her down if the story came out that she left North in a hotel with a Nanny while going to a fancy restaurant with friends.

  30. Lea says:

    Not surprising but definitely sad. It reminds me when Kim walked around with an empty stroller when North was a baby, to pretend that she brought her along on trips.
    It is sad to see this little girl used as a fashion accessory. I don’t see another reason why one would bring a child along, if it’s not to spend time with her.

    • Ash says:

      Lea that breaks my heart!! I remember that. This coming from another mom, who like Kim (supposedly) had major fertility struggles. My child is so precious to me, she fought hard to make it into the world, I cannot even fathom not wanting to be with her, let alone walk an empty baby stroller. That has to be the saddest thing ever. They might have all the money in the world for forever and ever and always but I have the love of my child which is worth so much more. What a sad, empty life they live.

    • jwoolman says:

      Well, they could spend time together in the car before and after. Sometimes parents have to work or have an appointment and the kid has to amuse herself for the duration. Considering she had a nanny paying full attention to her, I think the kid will survive….

      My mom used to leave me in the library when I was six or seven, while she took my brother into the city for a regular specialist’s appointment. She would just notify the librarians, who were fine with it. I hardly came up for air with all those books surrounding me and didn’t even notice mom was gone. Definitely a self-amusing child. Nori may be the same way and be fine with intermittent time with Kim. She certainly acts a lot more comfortable with Kim than when she was a tiny tot.

  31. Carrie says:

    Ah, whatever! If I’m having lunch with a friend, I would totally love to send my kids to another table! Lol

  32. mac says:

    I feel so bad for that child growing up in that family. They have no morals.

  33. D says:

    She probably sat her at another table because umm she’s not quite G rated

    • KLO says:

      Yep thats what i thought too. I think Kim is aware that her friends will probably talk about things a little kid should not hear about.

  34. M says:

    I can’t believe I am commenting but is it really a big deal? No one should have to feel guilty for having a nanny. End rant.

  35. Naomi11 says:

    I’d be so embarrassed if she was my mother. Wait until North grows up, and find out the truth about her parents. Oh boy!
