Kim Kardashian West’s Return to Social Media Just Turned Political

slider_1_-_kim_kardashian

Kim Kardashian West returned to social media in time to get political. Her husband Kanye West may be a friend of Donald Trump, but she still took the time to passive aggressively slam a recent policy imposed by the 45th US President.

In a Friday executive order, President Trump banned Syrian refugees and other citizens from several Muslim countries. Kim responded by posting statistics about annual deaths in America.

The graphic on Twitter showed the number of Americans killed annually by various circumstances. The fatal injury report deemed that two people are killed by Islamic jihadist immigrants each year, which was compared to 11,737 individuals killed by being shot by another American.

The biz mogul and reality TV show captioned her post, “Statistics.”

Kim Kardashian West Emerges from Her Break From the Public

west-christmas

Kim Kardashian-West has been on a self-imposed social media ban since being bound, gagged and robbed in Paris back in October.  But she sort of came out of it via others this week.

Her husband Kanye West posted a family Christmas photo with them all dressed in black, taken at the Kardashian annual Christmas Party. It was a stark difference from the annual elaborate grande full family photo they used to take every year. Just the nuclear family: mom , dad, daughter North in an Alexander Wang custom dress  and Vans and son Saint wearing little Yeezys sneakers.

This glimpse of the family come after a very tumultuous months.  In addition to Kim being robbed at gunpoint, Kanye canceled his world tour mid concert after suffering a breakdown and being admitted into the hospital for a psych eval, which was diagnosed as a case of exhaustion.

Kim also is not shunning away from social media addicted friends like Paris Hilton who she knows will post a photo of the two of them together as she did here:

 



And she was featured in Khloe’s snap that night as well.

 



She also appeared in a photo at the holiday party of longtime family friend Shelli Azoff at The Forum in Inglewood, California this month.

Teyana Taylor and her husband Cleveland Cavaliers player Imani Shumpert tied the knot recently and they announced the news with this adorable photo with their daughter Imani Shumpert Jr.

The trio wore burgundy leather jackets with the concluding vows on the back: “I Do,” hers read. “I Do Too” was written on his jacket and “Oh! Me Too” on the back of baby girls miniature version. It was too cute!

More recently, the “Fade” dancer and her daughter rocked the Soul Train Awards red carpet and she turned lots of heads in a sheer body hugging dress that showed off her super fit body, which was all the rage after the debut of the video for Kanye West‘s song.

Kim Kardashian West Files Libel Suit Against Gossip Site Claiming She Faked Paris Robbery; They Apologize & Retract

media take out

Kim Kardashian West has sued the online gossip site MediaTakeOut.com for libel after the site portrayed her as a liar and a thief after she was robbed in Paris earlier this month.

In a lawsuit filed in a Manhattan federal court, Kardashian West states not only was she traumatized by the October 3, 2016 robbery but was victimized a second time when the site reported after the attack that she faked the robbery and lied about the assault.

No arrests have been made since, according to Paris police, armed robbers posing as police officers tricked the concierge of the private mansion she was renting while in town for Paris Fashion Week, and then eventually tied, bound and gagged both Kardasian West and the concierge and made off with $10M in jewelry.

The lawsuit says she asked the site to publish a retraction and apologize for painting a victim of a serious crime as a criminal. The lawsuit said the “malicious publication of the articles…is libelous.”

 

After the attack, her husband, Kanye West, abruptly ended his New York concert, announcing that he had a family emergency.

Media Take Out has taken down the post and its editor in chief Fred Mwangaguhunga  told CNN:

“Our number one goal is to produce the most accurate information as quickly as possible and we did that … But now, looking back at it, you have a chance often times to look back and reflect on what it is that happened. It’s now clear that she was robbed. It’s clear that the reporting that we did hurt her, and we certainly don’t want that to be what we do.

It’s a bigger issue than just someone telling you to take it down. Sometimes you take it down because there’s something on there that’s not right and your readers are being misled by the information on it.

Kim Kardashian is not just a celebrity, she is a human being. She is a mother, she is a wife and she was a victim of a violent crime. She definitely did not deserve it and she deserved to be believed.”

Nothing like a million dollar lawsuit to make you change you mind.

It’s been a busy week with the celeb women we follow and have featured on the blog. Here is a little roundup of some of the latest news:

Kim Kardashian West has suspended all social media activity and filming of her hit television show Keeping Up with the Kardashian since being bound and gagged and locked in a bathroom of her private rental mansion while in Paris for Paris Fashion Week last weekend. Gunmen posing as police got past the concierge and stole $10M in jewelry after asking for “the rapper’s girlfriend” according to recent press reports, referencing her husband Kanye West. The children were in New York City with their dad who left a concert at the New Jersey Meadowlands mid set to rush to be by his wife’s side.

Thinking of Kim Kardashian as we can imagine she is quite shaken up after such a harrowing and frightening experience. (Hollywood Reporter)

Behati Prinsloo‘s bestie South African Supermodel Candice Susan Swanepoel  and her fiance fellow model Hermann Nicoli welcomed their first child, a baby boy (E!)

Teyana Taylor Breaks the VMAs, Becomes Everyone’s #BodyGoals

teyana-kanye

Last night’s MTV Video Music Awards in New York City was also about another one of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums who didn’t even attend the event in person. R&B singer, actress and choreographer Teyana Taylor starred in Kanye West‘s new video for his song “Fade” from his “Life of Pablo” album. He debuted the video after a 4-minute rambling speech and then she essentially broke the VMAs. (well…right before Beyonce performed and broke it again)

teyana 3

In the video for Fade, outfitted in a “Flashdance” -esqe work out gear, super cropped underboob-revealing tank, high cut workout undies and knee pads, Taylor performed some pretty wickedly fierce dance moves inside an empty gym.

teyana6

Yes, this is the same woman who gave birth one week and who looked like this 6 days later. So, it came as no surprise to us at Bellyitch that her body would be this hot months later.

teyana1

Just her, dripping with hotness. The artists that perform on the record Yeezy, Ty Dolla $ign and Post Malone are nowhere to be seen. Um, not that anyone needed them.

teyana 5

The rhythmic gyrations and phenomenal choreography ended with some steamy NSFW scenes with her husband Cleveland Cavalier‘s Iman Shumpter in the shower. For those who don’t know, Taylor, is also well known among mainstream audiences for her 2007 my My Super Sweet Sixteen party which aired on MTV. And her fiance is the same dude who helped Taylor deliver their daughter in the bathtub.

teyana 10

The final scene ends with a close up of Taylor, only with her face looking like a puma, and she has a tail. She’s on Shumpter’s back and their daughter Iman Jr is close nearby with some sheep surrounding them all. Odd. I know. Watch the video here on Digg (if it hasn’t been taken down).

teyana2

 And enjoy these Gifs that are going around the net because, in addition to new found heightened fame to a new crop of people who were unaware of her existence and fame before, Taylor is now the official MILF and #BodyGoals for a bunch of people who will probably never look as good as she does. lol.

Kim Kardashian-West: Kanye Helped Me Embrace My Pregnancy Curves

kkw and north

In a candid blog post recently, Kim Kardashian West opened up about embracing her curves during her pregnancy and credits her husband Kanye West for boosting her confidence. As ET summarizes:

“During my first pregnancy, I just wanted to cover up,” she writes. “I wasn’t used to how being pregnant made me feel, and I honestly had a hard time being comfortable with it. The second time around, it was easier for me to embrace the changes. I loved finding looks that showed off my pregnancy curves.”

Kim acknowledges that shedding 70 pounds after giving birth to Saint took plenty of hard work and dedication.

“After I had Saint, I decided to set goals for myself. I was motivated, but it was tough!” she says. “It isn’t easy to just bounce back. I was so jealous of women who had these cute little baby bellies and would gain 25 pounds — and then, a few weeks after giving birth, somehow look exactly like they did before they were pregnant, lol. That’s not me.”

She did have one person firmly in her corner — her husband, Kanye West.

“A big source of my confidence is my husband,” Kim shares. “I’m my own biggest critic, and Kanye is my biggest supporter. He always encourages me, and makes me feel confident about owning all my curves and showing them off.”

Above all, the mother of two strives to set a good example for North.

“As North gets older, she’ll start to be more aware of herself and her body,” she notes. “Her attitude toward her body is directly related to my own, so it’s my responsibility to make sure she understands that positive body image comes from having a healthy self-esteem.”

I think I Might be the Only Kanye West Fan Among my Mommy & Daddy Friends

kanye-west2

Yesterday, I learned that one of my all time favorite rappers, Kanye West, will be coming to my town! I squealed and immediately announced my joy to my Facebook friends only to quickly learn that I was alone in my fandom for Mr. West among my friends of moms, dads and professionals. * hrmph *

Now…granted, I understand.  The famous multi-Grammy-award-winning producer and recording artist is notorious for saying a lot of controversial things (saying President Bush doesn’t like Black people, ). And…he is also infamously known for doing a lot of off-the-wall things (interrupting Taylor Swift‘s Video Music Award Best Female Video acceptance speech, wearing a jacket with a confederate flag on it etc)

But to me, the man is a musical genius and there is a method to his madness, and insanely ginormous ego. I’m capable of looking past all the socially awkward stuff and still dig his beats, rifts, arrangements, clever verses and contiguously catchy and memorable hooks and choruses. I have adored him since “College Dropout” and before even when he sang a hook on one of Jay-Z’s songs.

So there! I’ve come clean!Love him or hate him, I still love his music. I haven’t felt this relieved since I came out as a silent member of the Bey-hive a couple of years ago. (I even reviewed her self-title album Here and Here)

And so now I’m excited to attend his “The Saint Pablo” World Tour concert which will be coming to DC’s Verizon center on September 8, two days after my birthday. How perfect!

I’ve thrown it out there in the universe and  for fam and friends who might want to gift me tickets. (smile)  Also, I’ve nagged all of my connects that work at Verizon. I even pitched it to various news outlets I freelance for occasionally to cover it.

Check out my fab Drake concert review HERE! Huh? huh? huh? Good huh? ha!

I check the blog’s analytics occasionally and we frequently get visitors from Calabasas, California so if you’re watching this Ye or anyone of your fam (old or new), hook a sister up!

Don’t make me have to buy my own ticket! lol! Okay! Glad to get that off my chest!

Back to your regularly scheduled friendly mom blog! lol

EDITED TO ADD: I attended the concert and it was bananas! The Universe must have heard my plea because not only did I get an offer to watch it from the box owned by Verizon itself (yeah, Verizon as in the corporation) but I was accidentally given two tickets so my husband could attend! Yay! And wait, there is more.

While we were on the hunt for drinks before the game, someone randomly gave me free floor tickets. An extra pair they had so I went into the concert with one gifted ticket and before it started, I had 4 tickets in my hands! I did a video about the experience you can see here. I tried to share video clips of the concert but someone on Kanye’s team filed a copyright complaint at YouTube and it was pulled. I was penalized for sharing it on Facebook and Instagram and was sent to FB jail for a few days too. It was all worth it! Yay!

 

Cavs NBA Player Iman Shumpert delivered his own child with fiance Teyana Taylor

cavs taylor

More babies for Kanye West as his G.O.O.D .Music label artist, R&B singer Teyana Taylor welcomed her first child, a daughter early, this Wednesday, December 16…and she was delivered by her finance Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert!

The two have been dating since last year and Shumpert announced on his social media Instagram account that their daughter was expected to arrive on January 16, 2016.

“I couldn’t be more happy than to share my first child with the woman I intended to have my family with.” Shumpert captioned a reposted photo of Taylor’s sonogram she shared on her page. “Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr is expected to enter this world (on) ‘1.16.16.’… I love you @teyanataylor thank you for your sacrifice in starting our very own family!…I know you see my daughter with her hand behind her head and her feet kicked up… she’s already daddy’s little girl!!!”

But little Imani wasn’t waiting.

Taylor detailed the early arrival and bathroom birth story in a photo of the newborn cradled in Shumpert’s arms:

On Dec 16th at 6:42am in our bathroom Junie decided she wanted to take her first breath into this world.

She came out as a wonderful surprise to everyone! Not knowing I was in labor until I felt her head…it took two ten count pushes with my fiancé playing Dr and she entered this world into his bare hands!

Eyes full of tears and barely able to speak to the emergency operator @imanshumpert tied a pair of red headphones around the umbilical cord and the ambulance made there grand entrance 5 min later. She opened her eyes right away, gazed into mine and never cried!

He handed her to me wrapped in our bath towel and wiped her face for me to see what LOVE really is. She has blown Christmas away! Our family is complete. Her blueprint will be unmatched.

Welcome Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr. Mommy carried you. Daddy delivered you. #MeetTheParents we love you baby girl?????

Wow! Congrats! The two got engaged 5 weeks ago.

And I totally missed this, but Taylor shared some pretty creative Maternity Portraits with her fans and followers in recent weeks.

Of Course Kanye West named his son ‘Saint’, Of Course

anne geddes

Well, when your ego is as large as Kanye West’s, a man who nicknamed himself Yeezus after Jesus Christ, then you’d understand why he’d name his son Saint.

West and his wife Kim Kardashian-West announced the name they gave their newborn son who arrived this weekend.

A source close to the couple told US Weekly that they had been referring to the  baby as “Saint” long before his birth because they regarded him as a miracle baby given their struggles to conceive the second go-around.

“I had this condition called placenta accreta. There were a couple little operations to fix all that, so that created a little hole in my uterus, which I think made it really tough to get pregnant again,” Kardashian is quoted telling  C Magazine. “It was a long road. I would go to the doctor in Beverly Hills every day at five in the morning to get tested to see if I was ovulating . . . I was trying everything: I did acupuncture and got a nutritionist to eat healthier, thinking that was an issue.”

A ha!!! And…it fits with the family theme.  If you’ve ever read any Kanye West quotes you will realize that there’s a little bit of narcissism going on there.

North is the highest place you can go.

There is also royalty in the family. The kid’s cousin, Kourtney Kardashian’s youngest child is named Reign Aston Disick.

In the Catholic tradition, martyrs who die promoting or defending the faith may eventually become canonized by a Pope and become Saints. It’s a lengthy process that starts with tons of sacrifice and devotion.

Or….you can just skip all that, appoint your child the same name yourself and call it a day.

After all, as someone pointed out to me, there are children named Angel and Messiah. Also, many Hispanic parents name their kids Jesus. (pronounced  hey-sous) so Saint isn’t a far stretch, albeit its uniqueness.

We’ve all grown to accept and love North’s name and likely will do the same with Saint.
