The Word: Kim Kardashian is taking Kanye West’s last name
West. Kim West.
Kim Kardashian got engaged to Kanye West last week, and she’s already decided that she’ll add his name to hers, she told E! News. Don’t worry, she’s not dropping the famous Kardashian moniker — she’ll follow in her sister Khloe Kardashian Odom’s footsteps and go by Kim Kardashian West.
I wonder if this means the next iteration of the West-Kardashian family’s TV empire will have a West-themed name. “Westward, Ho”? Nope. “Into the West”? Even worse. Maybe they’re better off sticking with Kardashian stuff after all.
Kim also says she plans to leave the wedding planning up to Kanye. “Whatever he wants,” she claims. Nothing either of them has ever said has given me such hope that they’re going to make it. She really does get him, doesn’t she.
While Kim and Kanye enjoy their pre-wedded bliss, her mother and stepfather Kris and Bruce Jenner are headed for divorce, and there’s a new rumor about the secret behind their split.
Take this one with a boulder-sized grain of salt: Star Magazine claims that the reason the Kardashian parentals are getting divorced is not middle-aged ennui, the stress of being on TV all the time or the incompatability of two narcissists.
No, they claim it’s because Bruce wants to be a woman.
