Kim Kardashian: The queen of reality TV, who takes some of the most “liked” selfies on Instagram, explained there was a reason she spent most of her family vacation in Thailand behind the camera lens. In a deleted scene from Sunday’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” the E! star told step-brother Brody Jenner the book was a gift to her then-fiancé Kanye West. She said she first thought of the idea for Valentine’s Day, adding that she and her assistant had fun taking scandalous photos with a Polaroid camera around her home during an impromptu shoot.

"For Valentine's Day, I couldn't think of what to get Kanye," Kardashian said in the clip. "And all guys love it when a girl sends them sexy pics. It ended up turning out so cool. We came up with this idea to create a book. A selfie book.”

She appeared to be preparing to say that the two had planned to take “super-racy” pictures, then stopped. She then said, "I mean, every girl takes like full pictures of their ass in the mirror.”

Kardashian, 33, posted a series of pictures with her husband following rumors the two were having marital problems. They hadn’t been photographed for awhile, but during the weekend she shared a few shots with West at an event for designer friend Riccardo Tisci’s birthday and on Monday she posted a rare picture of daughter North, who turned 1 at the end of June.

The picture got more than 1.15 million likes, which is double the attention most of her pictures get.
