Following much judicious tabloid-baiting and coy-playing on the part of Kim Kardashian, the obvious has been confirmed: Kanye West will appear on the next season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. But will anyone still care by the time the episodes air?
A better question might be “does anyone care now,” but the amount of clicks this fake-lationship generates says that sadly, they do. But with their…whatever it is playing out in the tabloids for more than a month already, I’m not sure that interest will survive. We’ve already seen the fevered beginning of their relashe (Sleepovers! PDA! Oh God, make it stop!), and without having to suffer through either of them opening their pie holes. I hate to say it, but they do make a handsome couple. Kimye in pictures is the most interesting/least obnoxious Kimye is ever going to look. You can almost pretend they’re dignified.
On top of that, Kim has promised that only the very most boring aspects of Kimye will be shown. “I’m not going to be taking a bubble bath and drinking champagne or on a sex swing [on camera] like Khloé [Kardashian Odom] and Lamar [Odom] do,” Kim told E! Online. “It’s not going to be like that.” Yawn.
By way of explaining this, Kim displays–or at least pretends to display–a rare moment of quasi self-awareness: “My heart’s a little more guarded…I showed so much of myself in the past. You almost get embarrassed showing this big wedding, which I would have had cameras or not.” Almost.
