Kim Kardashian: Kanye ‘literally flew to Belgium to find wood for our kitchen’


Sometimes, I feel like we should give Kim Kardashian some begrudging credit. Yes, she’s an exhibitionist, she’s vapid and superficial and she has no clue how to find clothes that will flatter her body. But we should also give her credit for having the stones to show off her “curvy” figure with no shame. I could never wear an outfit like this – I would be too self-conscious of my thighs. But I admire the fact that Kim just kind of owns it and puts it out there. Does she look good? Not really. But props to her for being comfortable with her body.

These photos are from yesterday afternoon/evening, as Kim went in to film her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The point of the interview was to promote her book of selfies called Selfish, but Kim ended up talking about how Kanye loves to decorate their home and how “It’s become one of his new passions.” He’s apparently flying all of the place to get the “best” of everything: “He literally flew to Belgium to find wood for our kitchen, and he flew to Fiji once to get fabrics. Like, he’ll fly all over the world just to find the best furniture, fabrics, architects. Like, he’s really, really into it. He likes to look in the factories. He takes it really, really seriously.” Here’s one clip where Kim and Jimmy take selfies:

And here’s a clip where Kim talks about Bruce Jenner:

Kim doesn’t want Bruce to steal her glam team? Sure.

Last thing – Anna Wintour has decreed: NO SELFIES at the Met Gala this year. Some people think the decree is aimed at Kimye.

    I actually don’t mind this look….*CRICKETS*…..seriously

    • Tristan says:

      She looks awful!

      • The other paige says:

        Agree Tristan!
        And in that header pic – WTF?
        No longer resembles something human?

      • Judyk says:

        Beyond looking awful, she looks positively ABSURD. Granny panties covered with a see-through skirt. Gimme a break…sick of the vapidness and neverending attempts at attention getting.

        How nice that one has the money to flaunt, taunt, and throw away in order to fly all over the world for wood and fabrics. I’m giving her nuttin–the best thing she has to offer is giving selfie advice.

    • denisemich says:

      This was not good. It looks like someone tried to stitch the vest closed at the last minute. Did no one hear the part about her daughter waking with a crazy afro? Why did she even mention that?

      • Dawn says:

        She looks pitiful in that outfit with her hair back so severely and so greasy looking. And as for KanYe flying to Belgium for wood I just had to laugh!! Other than that just another day in the life that is Kim KarTrashian.

    • Liv says:

      Kanye has more money than sense….literally

      • TeaAndSympathy says:

        Dear Dawn and Liv: Is there no wood in America? What about all your vast forests that grow timber specifically for building needs? Are there no specialty companies that source those beautiful American timbers so prized elsewhere, or are they really not good nough for them? Does he just “literally fly everywhere” to get away from her? Really, these two are beyond egotistical and empty.

      • TeaAndSympathy says:

        And what on earth is she wearing? A dressy blazer and vest teamed with cheap, 1960s see-through, sex kitten culottes and granny pants? I’ve been in hospital (major surgery which really took its toll) since last Friday, and still high on anything they try me on to bring me to some sort of normality, but geeeeeez, even I can see how ghastly this is. And to think she could have paid someone’s mortgage for 6 six months on what it costs, which would have won her great accolades, rather than dress like a pre-schooler who got last pick from the dress-up box, all for a pap stroll. I wonder if this klever kombo will ever see the light of day again? What a drongo.

      • Trillion says:

        grab some hospital panties while your there. Apparently they are now suitable for outerwear.

      • TeaAndSympathy says:

        Thank you, Trillion. I’ll have my daughter scope out the supplies tomorrow. I might be able to recoup more of my surgery costs after all… Should I be on the lookout for any other trending fashion items? Things like (pretty) blue disposable gloves, waterproof wound dressings with a cute cornflower blue trim, or how about the very fetching white and periwinkle surgical stockings – surely that trend hasn’t come and gone while I was non compes mentas?

      • lirko says:

        Lol Trillion!!

  2. kri says:

    Can he literally just , like, FLY somewhere and get her some pants?

  3. Josephine says:

    Kim doesn’t “own” her body. She’s butchered it, which suggest just the opposite.

    I think she knows that she doesn’t wear flattering clothes, but ridiculous and unflattering outfits bring her more attention, which is all that counts. She could look decent – she could take down the size of her rear end, switch to smaller implants on top, dress in flattering clothes, and stop with the fake hair and gobs of make-up (I don’t think she can reverse the work on her face). But that wouldn’t bring her attention.

    • Jag says:


      Had she worn an opaque black skirt in that material, she would’ve looked significantly better, but people wouldn’t be talking about it.

    • lucy2 says:

      Thank you. Someone who is comfortable with their body does not feel the need to constantly surgically alter it until they look like a cartoon, or Spanx and cinch it into oblivion.

    • ava7 says:

      I think we have to consider that she is appealing to a different culture. In the rap/hip hop community they like a big booty. Look at Amber Rose and Nicki Manaj. They both have extraordinarily large behinds that they make shake on the camera and that is what is considered sexy in that culture. So I’m not sure we should give her credit for “owning her curves”. I’m pretty sure she paid a lot of money and endured a lot of painful recovery to get her bottom as big as possible, because that is what’s hot to a certain demographic.

  4. Boopybette says:

    This headline reminds me of those ‘stupid rich,’ sprint commercials. Lol

  5. Elisabeth says:

    i pray the next time he ‘literally’ tries to fly somewhere it involves him jumping off a roof and flapping his arms

    • Chrissy says:

      LOL! You made my morning…thanks Elisabeth.

    • meme says:

      LOL…if only

    • Anne tommy says:

      Because of course Belgium is just so famed worldwide for its wood…he’s awful, she’s awful, the perfect couple. That outfit would look awful even on someone with slim thighs.

      • ava7 says:

        Yeah I was a bit confused by this. I have an uncle who is a builder of luxury homes in ATL, and of all the places where prized wood comes from (S. Africa, Madagascar, etc.) I’ve never heard Belgian wood mentioned. Go figure.

      • ISO says:

        “Honey I need to fly to…ugh…Belgium for some. ..uh…wood, and then next week baby…ugh…Fiji for some ah…really important factory fabric”.

    • Kiki04 says:

      Hahaha! +100

    • jwoolman says:

      That’s actually the image I had when I read the headline. Maybe sprouting angel wings for safety’s sake as he zoomed off toward Belgium. Didn’t need a plane, literally.

    • Kosmos says:

      THANK YOU!! We need to be saved from these two vapid, superficial human beings……

  6. Tiffany27 says:

    Kanye sounds so exhausting.

  7. Susan says:

    Why are the Kardashians making Bruce Jenner’s story thier story?

    • Michelle says:

      They’re trying to make it about them, but I don’t think that its actually working. Kim is all over the place doing interviews because the media is somehow connecting her to Bruce’s story, but I don’t feel like she is getting anywhere near as much attention as she normally would. When Bruce’s reality show airs the Kardashian Klan is going to be beside themselves engaging in even more desperate behavior for attention, because Bruce is going to be EVERYWHERE and that is going to kill them.

      • melissa says:

        Kim is doing all these interviews because people want to pry info from her since Bruce said she’s the most supportive Kardashian.

        I hope his show does well.

      • jwoolman says:

        Kim did keep her mouth shut about it until Bruce gave her the ok, I think. He emphasized her in his own interview, so that’s made media interested in asking her about it and now she’s free to say something when they ask. I don’t think she’s actively trying to make it about her. She’s such a liar it’s always hard to tell, but in this she seems to be following Bruce’s lead and might even be more truthful than usual. Maybe. It’s so much easier when people just always tell the truth or say no comment — with pathological liars like Kim, it’s so hard to decide if this is that one time you can believe them.

    • Kiki04 says:

      Because it’s the Kardashians. Unfortunately they will try to make anything their story if they feel it will get them press. Feel sorry for Bruce, hope he runs as far away from them as he can get……..

  8. Crumpet says:

    I don’t think she is comfortable with her body at all. Someone who is comfortable in their own skin does not have the number of plastic surgeries this woman has had.

    Flying to Belgium for wood? Talk about conspicuous consumption. Sickening, really.

  9. MediaMaven says:

    I think he “literally” flies everywhere to “literally” get away from her.

  10. Unmade_bed says:

    Must be nice! Contractors around here charge big bucks to build your house out of sawdust and formaldehyde.

  11. maeliz says:

    That must be nice to be able to go all over the world whenever you want, but this is pushing it. Going for fabric, wood, and furniture proves he has too much time to do nothing else. Did he go while North was taking a nap?

    • Michelle says:

      Kim and Kanye are both morons. I’ve never understood why Kanye always has to be somewhere that she isn’t. When she was pregnant, he was in Paris, yet on their show they regularly blast Scott Disick and portray him as this awful, abusive guy even though he has been with his pregnant girlfriend throughout all of her pregnancies and has been the only man other than Bruce Jenner to stay with one of these women for longer than 3 or 4 years. Kanye has to fly all over the world to pick out the best of everything? First of all a man that high maintenance is a turn off, and second she should be questioning why he can’t ever just hang out with her and his kid.

      • lucy2 says:

        I know I couldn’t stand to be around either of them. After staring at themselves together for 5 minutes in the mirror, they probably don’t have anything else to talk about, so one of them has to go somewhere. Kind of sad for people with a new marriage and young daughter, but they’re both too self absorbed to realize it.

      • monayandmonet89 says:

        this is such a good point and i can’t believe i’ve never put that together. Scott (while a struggling alcoholic who shouldn’t be around clubs, vegas and drinking) is always around. Even when he goes on trips, it’s for a couple of days, quick appearances and seems really connected and loving and affectionate to the kids on the show and it’s so genuine. He and Kourtney are present in their kids’ lives and it shows but how do they hate on him all the time when Kanye is MIA literally 1/3 (and i’m being generous) of the time?

  12. Brin says:

    He doesn’t have to fly anywhere for plastic, it’s right in front of him.

  13. FingerBinger says:

    Kanye is bored with too much money.

  14. Kiddo says:

    Enormous carbon footprint.

    • mia girl says:

      You know what they say about men with enormous carbon footprints…

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I was thinking same. Just to build one house. Barf.

      +enormous thighs but you didn’t hear it from me.

      • Kiddo says:

        I always feel like she has no comprehension of how to go about pairing pieces.
        The top portion of the outfit is a very common highly tailored woman’s tux look for a dressy affair, and the bottom, without lining, is hippie casual. The underwear is 1970 mom-ish. I get the impression that putting together incongruent items, in Kim’s mind, is the equivalent of fashion forward, but really it merely says ‘random’ and not working.

        The vest looks a mess because either the snaps or hooks weren’t aligned properly, or there is awful tailoring and this piece doesn’t fit her.

  15. Skins says:

    I wonder if she knows what “literally” means?

    • ann says:

      She like literally has like no idea what like the word “literally” like really means.

    • Michelle says:

      Definitely not, which is why she uses it every other word. It’s really hard to listen to this woman talk, not only because her voice is so annoying but because she’s so damn dumb! Every other word is “like.” I thought that was something teenagers did until they got older, matured and knew better. Kim is 34 years old and can hold a conversation about as advanced as a 9 year old can.

      • swack says:

        My grandchildren at 9 didn’t/don’t use the word “like” as she does. She has never left the “Valley Girl” behind.

  16. kcarp says:

    I am glad they arent faux environmentalists

  17. Tiffany says:

    Literally, Kim. Literally.

    I am exhausted with the word and how it is constantly used out of context.

    Get off my lawn.

  18. Dirty Martini says:


  19. LetItBe! says:

    @brin spot on. I love it

  20. Venuslotus says:

    he flew for some wood..mmhmm that’s one thing i’ll believe.

  21. Michelle says:

    If Kanye’s taste in home decor is anything like his taste in most other things, their new house must be hideous. Kanye does not have great taste. Also – this outfit is horrible. When I first saw the top, I assumed she would be wearing just a nice tailored suit. The problem with this woman’s style aside from everything being so damn ill-fitting and wrong for her body shape is that her and Kanye are always trying to reinvent the wheel when they dress her. She could’ve looked great in a really well tailored suit, but they had to go the extra mile, try too hard to be different and shocking and pair a suit on top with a sheer skirt on the bottom. Her outfit is basically a mullet; business on the top, party on the bottom.

    • Mltpsych says:

      The bodysuit/skirt thing is Balmain Spring 2015 but totally looked different on the runway. Kim make every designer look like Walmart

  22. Christin says:

    Did she rip off the jacket and skirt and go swimming afterwards?

  23. Julie says:

    Nothing but the best for Kanye West!

  24. Hautie says:

    ” He’s apparently flying all of the place to get the “best” of everything…”

    And this exactly is how MC Hammer went bankrupt. Spending ridiculous amounts of money, that you should have left in the bank. Building some tacky ass expensive home. That no one else would buy. Because it was filled with the very best of tacky… over priced… materials.

    If rumors are even half way true. Kayne is not rolling in the $$$$. So where is he getting this never ending supply of cash, for this house?

    Kim better check to make sure… she still has cash in the bank.

    • FingerBinger says:

      I was thinking of MC Hammer too when I was reading this story. Hammer bought race horses and all kinds of crazy things with his money.

    • Imo says:

      True but to be fair Hammer also had too many friends/family on his dole. Feeling grateful for his newfound wealth and fame he felt obligated to help everyone around him – lavish gifts, exorbitant salaries etc. he even built a church. So yeah, foolish in hindsight and he has admitted his mistakes. And of course everyone left him to the wolves when the money ran out. His major fault was not so much in the things he bought – entrepreneurs, celebrities, magnates etc all buy stupid crap – but that he didn’t have a competent financial planner/strategy. If he had been born into money the race horses etc would be pisitively viewed as an investment and the mansion as well.
      Hammer is a heck of a nice guy, though.

      • lirko says:

        Agree. He had everyone from his old neighborhood working for him in one way or another. He really was, at least, trying to bless others with his wealth.

  25. pk says:

    She isn’t a stunner anymore…that’s for sure.

    • Susie Q says:

      Agreed, her face before the face before this one was much prettier.

    • lirko says:

      I think getting older is going to be really tough on her. She has no wisdom or perspective to compensate for the aging body/face thing. She still thinks being hot is the most important thing in life.

  26. Nibbi says:

    she seems to have done more stuff to the bottom part of her face. some extra shaping of her bottom lip or chin or something. she still looks pretty, let’s face it, but it seems weird to me that her face is really , really morphing into her mother’s. her mother is also a pretty woman but i find the fact that they are starting to look like identical twins can’t be due to simple mother-daughter genes or kim *gasp* aging. truly she ought to stop with the little nips and tucks stuff, her look starts to be a little unsettling

    • louise says:

      I’ll admit Kim and Kris are both pretty women. They better stop to surgeries because they aren’t doing good. Should’ve stayed natural like Kourtney who’s beautiful and only had a boob job

  27. FLORC says:

    Well Shocker! Kim again had a poor choice of words. Also, Water is wet.

    Some friends renovated their kitchen. It’s Gorgeous! They went overseas to select their flooring because, why not? Came back with African Cypress. I made the comment it looked like knotted pine. That did not go over well considering the full expense just for the floor.
    End of the day it was their money they earned. Same with Kanye and Kim. Though, I get where i’m at. A place where the 2nd half of th name is exercised to excess on a K thread.

    • Josephine says:

      He strikes me as someone who could buy up every fancy material in the world and still not be happy. He appears to be a bottomless pit of need that unrelenting spending will not fix. He went out and got the women he figures is the best looking, and it doesn’t appear to have made him happy or fulfilled at all.

      These people – they’re empty.

  28. angee says:

    What gets me is how seemingly unconcerned celebrities are about jetting about for their whims, when jet emissions one of the clear contributors to global warming. It’s funny to see them attending this fundraiser and that fundraiser for global concerns and awareness after stepping off their rented/owned private jets.

    I’m more concerned about this than what they’re wearing.

    • morc says:

      All aviation accounts for 2% of emissions, 40% are energy generation alone.
      Building/Construction is another huge contributor of more than 40% of emissions.
      He may be wasteful, but flying is a tiny part of Co2 and people only single it out because it seems exotic.

      • angee says:

        It depends which study and webpage you pull your statistic from, I’ve seen higher rates e.g. go to Wikipedia. At any rate, I don’t think of trips like this as being exotic, I think of them as being frivolous and wasteful.

        It’s amusing how we contribute re: the extravagance of his supposed trip and others that contribute are more concerned with her outfit. I think we’re on the wrong website. :0>

  29. #1: I think Kim’s ensemble would have looked better on Bruce.

    #2: To think Kim was honored at Variety’s Power of Women Luncheon……..(like, literally.)

  30. Anastasia says:

    Like really really like literally like ohmygod like really really really literally

    • COSquared says:

      Literally like really?like literally are you like… kidding and stuff? Like literally this isn’t like funny!OH.MA.GAWD.

  31. PinaColada says:

    Kim is Kris’ TWIN. that is all

  32. Loren says:

    Ya, I’m sure the wood was “for the kitchen” wink wink. lol

  33. Jayna says:

    I laughed when I heard her say she was taking selfies before they were called selfies. She used to catalogue them. She says she just took them for the memories.

    I was floored. You take a billion photos of yourself for memories? Does she even get a hint of how narcissistic she is? She loves to look at herself in tons of selfies, not photos of family or places she’s been.

  34. Velvet Elvis says:

    Kim, Kanye blah blah blah…I just don’t care anymore. As if I ever did.

  35. Hannah says:

    Nope. Don’t agree with the first paragraph at all. I think it’s ridiculous, actually. What is so courageous and praise-worthy about walking around half-naked at inappropriate times for attention? Especially when you’re uneducated and do nothing good for society (probably the opposite).

    • word says:

      Yeah Kim is not comfortable with her body. In that case, why has she had so much done to change it? She dresses like this to get attention. If she dressed nicely it wouldn’t get much press.

  36. Susie Q says:

    Maybe, like, he should have like, flown somewhere where they have like clothing stores and picked up something like not so fugly for her to wear like.

  37. jwoolman says:

    I assume the purpose of the story is just to demonstrate how terribly rich they are.

    Although if there is any truth at all to what Kim Liar Liar Pants on Fire Kardashian is saying – maybe Kanye is really looking for excuses to see the factories and such where stuff is made. He probably is honestly interested. That would also make the trip tax deductible since it would be business related…

  38. TOPgirl says:

    Vomit. yes, she does that to me.

  39. amara says:

    WTF is she wearing? So not flattering at all.

  40. Tough Cookie says:

    Like….If my husband told me he was, like, flying to Belgium to get wood I would, like, um, kick him out. Then I would, like, put on a sheer curtain over my panties and go outside to, like, wave at people.
    Sometimes I just can’t stand how krazy Kim and Kanye are. Like, literally, I just can’t.

  41. Jonesy says:

    What a dummy. Don’t you know you’re supposed to go to Belgium for WAFFLES, Kanye? Literally!

  42. Ally8 says:

    I bet Kanye and Ricardo had a good giggle about that “wood” line he fed her when they met up in Bruges.

  43. Victoria says:

    If Kimye wants selfies, I guarantee they’ll take selfies. Anna has no power with these two…

  44. Lucilu says:

    Kanye literally flew to Belgium to get some “alone time” away from her, to get some “alone time”, with somebody else.

  45. yep says:

    Anybody notice how hard the smile was on her walk?

  46. Andrea says:

    What a waste of energy!!!
    Think about the environment!!!

  47. celtlady says:

    I wish that, literally, Kanye would fly back to Belgium, literally, and buy her some pants. She literally keeps forgetting to wear her pants. Literally.

  48. Caz says:

    Every inane comment published by the Kardashians further highlights how truly irrelevant they are.

  49. LAK says:

    His carbon footprint must be astronomical. Then again, he doesn’t care as long as he can ship wood from Belgium or wherever!

  50. Question now says:

    She sounds like one of these pretend-posh awful nouveau-riche people who want to belong and therefore over-emphasize their demands of quality and style.

  51. Itsa Reallyme says:

    That bulky jacket doesn’t work with the skirt. At all. And the vest is busting at the seams. If you’re going to brag about having a full time seamstress in your employ, the least you can do is show up in well fitted clothing. Her clothes always look like mock-ups.
