If Kim Kardashian doesn't put her baby on TV, I'll be shocked. And horrified. And I'll make a glittery yet scathing poster and have a one-woman picket party outside of NYC's Dash or Kanye West's Tribeca apartment demanding that their spawn be featured on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Because this rumor, this nasty little rumor that alleges Kim wants to keep her baby off of reality TV is ruining my new year. She got married to a mute giant on national TV and divorced him a few hours later, for crying out loud. When did Kim suddenly get scruples about privacy?
It's not like she has a leg to stand on when it comes to keeping her personal life, ya know, personal. Beginning with the sex tape and culminating with the two-hour wedding special, there's nothing Kim held sacred. Not even her psoriasis or the fact that she's kind of a dick to her brother Rob. It's all been on TV. We've all seen it.

We've even seen her sister Kourtney pull her own child from her vagina. Kourtney's not opposed to putting her kids on TV -- what, does Kim think she's better than that?
The fact of the matter is, Kim would be making the smartest move of her life keeping her baby off TV, but it's the continuity issue that's just, like, annoying. Oh now you want a private life? Oh now you don't want to share every intimate detail of your life for money?
I'm afraid, for Kim's sake, that it ain't going to go down like that. You can't just turn off the switch. Her baby will probably make her more famous than ever (at least her pregnancy will), and the hand that feeds her will demand more. More shows. More magazine covers. More interviews.
If she bites that hand, I'll be mildly impressed ... but, I just, I just don't see her saying "no" to Kris or E! That baby will be the star of its own show by July if they get their way.
Do you think Kim would really keep her baby off TV?
