While Kim Kardashian was spending New Year’s skiing between her sister Kourtney’s legs in Utah (that’s not a euphemism, I swear), another one of her sisters, Kendall Jenner, was on a ski trip of her own. She was spotted with rumored boyfriend Harry Styles yesterday at a snowboard shop in Mammoth Lakes, Cailfornia. I can just imagine Kris Jenner ordering her family to ski in different states: “Kendall, hold down the fort in California. Kim, go east to Utah. We will keep moving east until we take over the world! Mwahahaha! Now somebody change my money IV. I feel faint.”
These two can deny they’re in lurve all they want, but the dating rumors continue. Allie Connolly posed for pictures with both of them and shared the experience on Instagram, saying, “Casually hanging out with Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles. #dying.” As usually happens when a member of One Direction does anything that’s documented on the Internet, Allie soon regretted posting the photos.
Lol now I have 14 year olds telling me that I was paid to make this a publicity stunt. Yep, you caught me hahahah

Well, Allie might not have been paid for her contribution, but I wouldn’t go laughing about the “publicity stunt” part. Actually, I would go laughing, because publicity stunts are highly entertaining, although not because I don’t believe they’re real. To buy into this PR relationship concept, you need only look at what Harry Styles and Taylor Swift did in December 2012. That’s right — they went skiing.
We’ve already covered the December 7th conspiracy theory about Harry Styles and his fakelationships (seriously, it’s terrifying). Is there also a ski aspect to the whole thing? Is his PR team run by superstitious people who want every relationship of his to follow the same pattern and who also jump at the sight of a black cat? I’m going to need us to delve deeper into this as a society. I’m talking Da Vinci Code level investigations, to the point where we actually hire Tom Hanks to figure things out. He’s a cool guy; I’m sure he’d be up for it.
