Looks like Kim Kardashian may be manipulating more than just the hearts and minds of television watchers everywhere.

Ms. Kardashian is famous, you see, for a few things: being pretty, selling klothing at Sears, dating Kanye West, having his daughter, having a dad who was O.J. Simpson’s trial lawyer, having a stepdad who was an Olympian, having a batshit mom and having siblings with whom she interacts, at times on camera.

She is also famous, of course, for her hot bod. Read More

Selfie study Kim Kardashian could be in possession of the just-announced iPhone 5s, or sunlight could’ve just made her black iPhone look grey. Tech!

Refinery29 spotted a photo uploaded to Ms. Kardashian’s Instagram in which the iPhone that appears looks mysteriously like the Space Gray color the new iPhone 5s will be offered in.

Saturday night, Kim Instagrammed a candid-looking-but-probably-posed selfie of herself and Instagram cofounder Kevin Systrom, captioned “Chilling with the creator of Instagram @kevin.” Are the two BFFs now?

More importantly: Second to grandma’s talkshow Kris, the photo-sharing service was one of the first places an official photo of baby Nori was distributed. Take that, Anna Wintour.

Anyway, the pair look like they’re in a closet playing a game of Seven Minutes in Heaven. Read More
