Kim Kardashian has made it very clear that she wants to distance herself from her famous family. She's moving into her own house and she fired her publicist to hire one who doesn't represent any of her family members. She's done all of this with the blessing of her baby daddy, Kanye West.
Now she's really driving her point home. Sources say that Kim won't let North West, the baby of a thousand faces, be filmed for Keeping Up With the Kardashians. This doesn't sound so much like a bid to make sure her child's privacy is respected. It sounds like another attempt to assert her own identity as a would-be A-lister. This might be a huge mistake.
Kim is desperate to elevate her star status, and in the process, she might be losing everything about her that was appealing. We loved watching Kim interact with her family. We loved that while she was stylish, she was also accessible. If she turns her back on that, it's as good as turning her back to her fans.
Plus, and I'm not saying this to be mean-spirited, what are the odds of her plan even working? Anna Wintour's already said she'll never work with Kim, which is the high fashion kiss of death. Without any other real skills to offer, how can she expect to be welcomed into the upper echelon? Seems a bit, well, naive.
Do you think Kim's on the right track?
