England has its royal family, and we have ours: Bey and Hova. And a visit from them is about the most exciting thing that could happen to anyone, even a Kardashian. Well, that happened. A couple days ago, Beyonce and Jay Z visited Kim Kardashian and Baby North. They stepped down from their gilded cloud long enough to spend a couple hours with Kanye's family, a privilege that no doubt thrilled the Kardashians. (Kanye was not around to enjoy the visit -- he's apparently in Milan at the moment.)
Can you imagine? And yet, there are those who would pooh pooh the grand occasion. Rumor has it that Beyonce cannot abide Kim, and visited only under duress, at the insistence of Kanye. Really? Come on. Even if there's a little truth to that rumor, I think Bey and Jay Z would want to see their friend Kanye's baby anyway.
And if Kim gets on Beyonce's nerves, I think having a little baby around would neutralize that. Beyonce could focus on North, giving Kim motherly advice and cooing over how cute North is. Babies are a well-known tool for a detente. As long as you keep the visit short and slip out before they get fussy, the baby visit can be a great peace-making opportunity.
Besides, how annoying could Kim really be to Beyonce? Maybe they just didn't have that much to talk about before. Well, they do now. Kim and Beyonce can bond as fellow mothers -- or, failing that, they can at least swap stories and photos. (We hear Bey and Jay Z didn't bring Blue Ivy, which was probably a smart move.)
Plus they sent Baby North some insanely lavish gifts -- Dior baby booties and a silver engraved Elsa Peretti Padova baby set. Now why would you spend around $7,000 on a baby and not want to also visit that baby and her mother, too? I think the feud is overblown, and I see a friendly relationship brewing between the two families.
Do you think Beyonce and Jay Z visited Kim and North because they wanted to, or because they "had" to?
