kim kardashian poses as barbie in kurv magazineHas Kim Kardashian finally lost all of her marbles? Maybe 2011 was just too much for her to handle, and the amount of sanity she has left is seriously questionable. Or she took drinking away her cares on Christmas eve a bit too far. That's what people are speculating, at least, after the reality TV queen started up a Twitter convo the night before Christmas with an inanimate object ... none other than Barbie.

It went down like this ... Kim tweeted, "Merry Christmas Barbs @BarbieStyle! Long time no see! What did Ken get you for Christmas? Miss you doll!" Then, "Barbie" reportedly responded, "Happy Doll-idays to you too @KimKardashian! See you in 2012?" To which Kim said something about seeing one another quite a bit and that she'd be "shopping soon." Uh ... huh ...

I admit, it sounds and looks totally nuts. But I'm thinking there's more than meets the eye here.

Specifically, this has to be a publicity stunt. Kim knows her every tweet is under the microscope! The woman gets PAID to tweet and name drop, especially when it comes to merchandise. I would think her most benign tweets have some kind of calculated motivation behind them. Hence why if she's tweeting at Barbie, it's not because she's lost her damn mind or had too much egg nog. The woman obviously has a deal goin' with Mattel. Drrrrr. And, by the way, this isn't the first time Kim has shown her love for the classic blonde toy. Back in '09, she posed as Barbie for the Australian magazine, Kurv.

I'm almost 100 percent positive this was set up as a tease for a brand new, collectors' series Kim Kardashian Barbie doll. How much you wanna bet there will also be a Kourtney doll and a Khloe one? Perhaps Kris Jenner, too? Maybe mini Mason Disick will make an appearance, as well? (Ha, that would actually be too cute!) 

As for the Kim doll, well, we could have a field day with the kinds of accessories it would come with. Lots of bling, dancing "Shoe Dazzle" galore, a smartphone to "text" with (of course), huge hoop earrings, falsie eyelashes you can put on and take off, a leopard print silk robe, a curling iron, a spray tan machine, maybe even a miniature bottle of her signature scent? The options are endless! (Although, the one thing the doll maker can't do anymore is create that tiny replica of the 20-carat engagement ring she rocked this past year, but that's okay.)

Not sure I'm going to be lining up to score myself a plastic version of the most famous Kardashian, but at the very least, we can rest assured Kim hasn't gone totally "krazy." She's just psyched to see herself made over in doll form in the New Year.

Would you buy a Kim Kardashian Barbie doll?
