Kourtney Kardashian thinks pregnancy will “raise her profile”


Star Magazine has an interesting article about the drama surrounding Kourtney Kardashian’s pregnancy. Much of it reads like yesterday’s report from the Enquirer – that Scott Disick is a cheater and a wanker, and that Kourtney’s family and friends don’t think much of him. Most of this piece is a confirmation of that, but there is some new information. Apparently, Kim Kardashian was really pissed that Scott didn’t drop to his knee and propose immediately when he learned of Kourtney’s pregnancy. Also – Kim read Scott the riot act about his immaturity. The way Star makes it sound, it’s as if they came thisclose to referring to it as a “man-to-man chat”. Kim has also been trying to act like Scott’s official chaperon, although I don’t know how she’s managing to watch Scott while she’s allegedly reconnecting with Reggie Bush.

The most interesting part, to me, was about how Kourtney thinks her pregnancy is her ticket to fame. Kourtney thinks the baby will “raise her profile” and “the timing is perfect” to coincide with the promotion of her new show. She also has dreams of doing a maternity line:

“[The Kardashians] are all super concerned because Kourtney and Scott have never had a solid relationship,” an insider tells Star. “He’s a cheater, and he’s really hurt her in the past.”

Kourtney, 30, called off their 10-month engagement in February because of Scott’s wandering eye. “He was openly flirting – probably more – with other women,” a source said at the time. But by March, they were back on. Then Kourtney forgot to take her birth control pills, and a baby was on the way.

“Kim and the rest of the Kardashians are really rallying around Kourtney,” a source says. “Thye want to make sure she has all the love and support she needs.” Because she isn’t getting it from Scott.

Kourtney admitted: “Scott’s had moments when he’s really scared.”

“Kim pulled him aside for a long lecture,” an insider reveals. “She told him that he needs to stop being so immature and noncommittal.” Kim couldn’t believe that Scott didn’t propose as soon as he heard the news.

But for Kourtney, the ring really isn’t an issue. “She’s got what she wants,” says a source. “Attention!”

The mom-to-be seems more concerned with making headlines than playing house. “She thinks the pregnancy will be great for raising her profile,” says a source.

Indeed, the publicity is perfectly timed to coincide with the start of her new show, Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami. Next, she plans to open a children’s clothing store in LA. And she even wants to design her own maternity line! “She wants to do something like Nicole Richie did for A Pea in the Pod,” one source explains.

While Kourtney travels to promote her show, Kim is keeping an eye on the father-to-be, even chaperoning Scott to an event on August 12. “She didn’t let him out of her sight all night!” a source tells Star.

“Kourtney wants Scott in her life, but she’s not going to put up with any drama,” says a source. “She’ll raise the child alone if it comes to that.”

I don’t find any of this hard to believe in the least. Kourtney has been looking to break out and get more attention for a while now – Khloe too, for that matter. They’ve been eclipsed by Kim’s badonkadonk long enough! And Kourtney’s plan to get more attention is working! People Magazine is now doing daily updates on Kourtney, all with “exclusive” interviews. Today’s story is “I Wish My Dad Was Alive”. I have no doubt that Kourtney does miss her father, but I’m starting to find the coverage, the interviews, and the updates a little… what’s the word?… famewhorish. I’m already over it. That was quick!

    If that’s all she thinks of her baby, she should’ve gotten the abortion. That would give her a lot of attention too.

  2. Aviatrix says:

    Scott is a douche, and obviously Kourtney needs to wise up in more ways than one. Note to Kourtney get with Jude Law and a take a lesson from baby mama Samantha Burke. If you want to be a famewhore, you gotta spread drama out so people don’t loose interest.

  3. RubyKaur says:

    *eye roll*

  4. Firestarter says:

    Like I said yesterday. make these people STOP!

  5. JoJo says:

    “raise her profile”? Well, thats all the reason needed to bring a child into the world!

  6. Lem says:

    it certainly has already. We’ve heard about this chic everyday. every day in print about her/pills/baby daddy drama.
    with several months to go I imagine we’ll get gifted stories on weight gain/staying fit. which poition knocked her up. several new *cough* fashion lines. vajayjay a paining. Can’t wait to see a naked photo shoot and then a brizilian wax/child birth video. Then the whole drama over Robert K Jr. the III so we can call him Trey while the giant one refuses to talk to the tiny one and the one with the big a$$ has to up the ante to stay ‘relevant’ Although how you top getiing pee’d on, I don’t wanta know
    Poor Bruce! Poor embryo. reality show prop already.
    **just wait till those little 2 hit the headlines**

  7. sillypeople says:

    Maybe Im crazy but I dont think that its horrible that she wants to make a baby clothing line. Is it horrible that she can now relate to pregnant woman & wants to market that? I mean she already owns 2 clothing stores. Its what she does!! I think she is thinking more of the business aspect of “raise her profile” If she is more popular/famous…her store is more popular!! Hello its called making money…PR!! Thats what she should be doing!

  8. Michelle says:

    So let me get this straight:

    Kourtney is famous for being the sister of Paris Hilton’s former bff, who is famous for making a sex tape with a never-was rapper who is famous for being a successful singer’s brother. Correct? She’s not an actress, singer, model… WHY is she famous? Why are any of the Kardashians famous?

    STOP PAYING ATTENTION TO HER/THEM- reporting on these talentless, vapid non-celebs, whether it’s good or bad, only perpetuates and does “raise their profile”- something they don’t deserve. Remember when it actually took TALENT to be recognized and famous? Being the sister or daughter of a famous person does not extend said person’s fame.

    From this moment on, I will never read or respond to another story regarding any of the Kardashians, Hiltons, Lohans, etc. They’re nothing but untalented and undeserving famewhores, and I’d rather save my respect and adulation for someone who actually deserves it.

    If you really want them to go away, I urge you to do the same.

  9. Jess says:

    Great….using the baby already and it’s still in the womb?!

  10. Lyla says:

    Well, it’ll certainly CHANGE her profile since she’s going to have a baby bump! What an EXCELLENT reason for her to have a baby, to increase her fame level…what a dumb broad.

  11. OXA says:

    This kid is doomed.

  12. Jen says:

    Kourtney Kardashian thinks pregnancy will “raise her profile”

    …from what exactly? “Useless Ho-Bag” to “Useless Ho-Bag with a Kid”?

    …or did she mean her actual physical profile? Because, uh, yeah…that will definitely change with pregnancy.

  13. princess pea says:

    I’m with Michelle on this. If you don’t like the (surprisingly honest) statement that this baby will raise her profile, don’t participate in that raising. Don’t buy a magazine when she is the cover story. Don’t click through and increase page views for articles about her online.

    It’s the only strategy to stop a famewhore. It’s actually kind of working with Heidi and Spencer, as they aren’t getting magazine covers anymore. The tabs realized that they weren’t selling.

  15. Jackie says:

    What profile?

  16. Praise St. Angie! says:

    bravo, Michelle. well said.

    I cannot stand these people who are “famous” or “newsworthy” because of who their parents were, because of who they fucked, because of who they got peed on by, etc…

    I’ve noticed that there’s been a lack of Heidi and what’s his name coverage here, and I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THAT!!!

  17. oh_mr_grey says:

    This only proves my theory that the gene pool is weakening.

  18. wow says:

    I notice the everyday People Mag updates as well. They’re “in bed” with her in the same way US Mag is “in bed” with Speidi and The Gosselin gang. They pay for all of these “exclusives”. *roll eyes*

  19. HalifaxDave says:

    LOL she thinks pregnancy will riase her profile?? how many women in the world right now are knocked up? Wow great way to stand out from the heard there

  20. Kate says:

    Sad, Stupid, Skank!

  21. oh my says:

    is there *anything* that family won’t whore out?

  22. yeahbut42 says:

    A child is not a career move. More proof that there is no god (when idiots like this can procreate.)

  23. DD says:

    and she’s right. Hollywood babies are the must have thing in the past few years. We will be bombarded with a multitude of her pregnancy and baby pics for a long time.

  24. K says:

    She sounds as if she has little to no intelligence. How far down the IQ pole does someone have to be (while still being able to walk upright) to think, oh good, pregnant means some people will still watch me?

  25. ozcat says:

    Sorry but who is this skank, not really known in Oz althugh apparently their show is on pay tv here.

  26. chshc says:

    Wow when Kim K is the responsible one you have issues

  27. ogechi says:

    lets give the girl a break..i love the kardashians

  28. Jag says:

    So she’s proud of being too stupid to take her birth control pills regularly, not using a condom in addition to being on the pill, and then staying with the baby-daddy, who is a no-good cheater?

    My old timey values wanted to add “not being married first” into that equation, but Hollywood doesn’t seem to care about that anyway. Sheesh… what a prize she is; of course she should be famous and plastered everywhere. Not!

  29. Trashay says:

    Low-class hollywood piece of trash #42,336. Next!

  30. Green Is Good says:

    *Snicker* She thinks she actually has a “profile” to raise? Delusional narcissist.

  31. Hieronymus Grex says:

    As another celebritard who thinks raising a kid is like raising a puppy. Take away the Kardashian cash and the nannies and make her raise the whelp in a typical middle class income household, with a typical salary and let her learn real responsibility.

  32. Anoneemouse says:

    Sickening that she “forgot” to take her birth control. There are shots, IUDs, any number of other measures you can take. The fact that this was an issue during an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians a few years ago makes this all seemed pretty planned out on her part. If she got pregnant in March then she sure knew she was pregnant over the summer when she was shooting her new show. Shame on her. While I have no doubt any child brought into that family will be loved and well-taken care of, can’t say the same will happen for all those young girls who look[ed] up to Kourtney as a role model.

  33. K says:

    She is still competing to be better known than Kim. And bringing a poor baby who’s only worth is to take momma a headline above sis. So sick and so sad. Can no one neuter these people?

  34. lway says:

    Please …. make her go away!

  35. Ann Lee says:

    I find it ironic that most single moms not in the public eye are not recognized for what they accomplish on a daily basis and throughout their lives. Many of us are actually professionals who continued our education at the same time taking on the responsibility of raising children and been successful in raising productive adults without the press being there to track our every move. Whether a woman decides to have children the conventional way or not is a personal decision and not for public scrutiny.

  36. Jay says:

    Wow. That kid is going to be just as screwed up as the youngest Kardashian sisters. Those kids are strange.

  37. Man oh man. That Kim Kardashian is crazy. I love following the family just because they’ve always got something goofy going on. Hope you keep writing information about the Kardashians.
