Kim Kardashian will reportedly make her first public appearance since giving birth to her daughter North West in less than two weeks. The E! reality TV starlet hasn’t been photographed by the paparazzi since baby Nori was born on June 15, but since the raven-haired fashionista must go to her sister’s sweet 16 party she has been forced out of her self-imposed seclusion.
Kardashian was brutally ridiculed by the media, which many called “fat-shaming,” for gaining more weight than expected during her first pregnancy. It was alleged the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star did not want debut her post-baby body until she had lost most of her pregnancy weight, a source told Us Weekly.
Since half-sister Kylie Jenner is having a sweet 16 party on Aug. 17, the 32-year-old Kardashian will be showing herself before the party, not to steal the teenager’s thunder. A source told New York Daily News’ Confidenti@l they starlet knows the world doesn’t revolve around her (and her famous derriere).
“Believe it or not, it’s not all about Kim,” the anonymous insider said. “She really wants to go to Kylie’s party, and when it comes to the family, Kris [their mother] wants everyone there. Kim is just working with Kris to figure out the best plan of action.”
The new mom might have plans to appear on her mother’s new talk show “Kris.” Kris Jenner’s show is in a six-week test phase, which would greatly benefit from a ratings boost if her cash cow of a daughter did her big reveal there.
“Kris won’t ask anything that Kim can’t make money off of in the future,” added the source. "They’ll keep it light and just talk diet and exercise. No baby photo will be shown.” Jenner essentially fooled fans when promo pictures for “Kris” of her holding a baby went viral, but little Nori has yet to be seen on the show or elsewhere.
“KUWTK” is currently in its eighth season and airs on E! every Sunday at 9/8c. Currently stepbrother Brody Jenner is in the middle of telling his stepmother exactly what he thinks of her during a Kardashian-Jenner blended family vacation in Greece.
