Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had a reunion in romantic Paris and they're doing that romantic Paris thing -- shopping, shopping, and more shopping. They reportedly hit a slew of designer stores including Givenchy, Ferragamo, Hermes, Celine and Lanvin. So why do they look so damn miserable?! Okay, Kim has said her pregnancy hasn't been a walk in the park -- unless that park happens to be in the middle of a river of nails. But still ... these two haven't seen each other in awhile. Shouldn't they be all google-eyed?
Several photos show the pair practically glaring at each other. Granted, Kanye never really looks happy. And Kim less and less as her birth date approaches. But still?! Are these two the new Kristen Stewart/Robert Pattinson? Certainly a different look from when we saw them in Paris last year and Kanye bought Kim a rose. Seriously, take a look at the snap of Kim getting out of the car. If looks could kill, Kanye would be a goner!
Hey, let's face it, we all get irritated with a partner occasionally. Sometimes more than occasionally. And Kimye are always under the hot lens of the paparazzi, who are bound to catch any iota of discontent between the two. Couples do fight. Couples do have off moments -- or even days.
I remember once getting into an argument with my fiance on New Year's Eve. It was right before midnight. Everyone was gearing up for the big kiss, and there we were, yelling at each other. Well, actually, I was the one yelling. For years, some of my friends who were there that night kept saying, "Yeah, I thought for sure you guys were done after that fight on New Year's Eve."
And yet our relationship outlasted most of theirs. Because what they didn't see was that we didn't argue for the rest of the year. I mean, not much. It's just that everyone happened to catch that off moment. They didn't happen to catch the kisses, cuddles, hugs. Who pays attention to that stuff anyway?
Maybe Kimye save their smiles for when the paps aren't around. That's certainly better than those couples who are all smiles when the cameras are out -- all grimaces when the cameras are away.
That said, I'm not sure about these two. The business is certainly a difficult one to keep a relationship going. And neither has the greatest relationship track record.
But I wouldn't say these photos are indicative of anything major ... are they?
Do you think Kimye are in trouble?
