Sunday’s season finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians saw Kim open up candidly about her husband Kanye West, following the rapper's turbulent declaration that "slavery was a choice".

Despite admitting that she was "hysterically crying" when she heard her 41-year-old husband say the quote, she claims that he is of sound mind and is even "doing good".

The Kardashian star will always have his back, it seems.

She spoke about the controversial hip-hop star's antics very openly;

“When he gets ramped up, he can’t control what he says — he can’t let it go,” she said. “He loves being ramped up."

He’s like, ‘I feel powerful when I’m ramped up. I don’t want to be so suppressed. Yeah, I say crazy s—, but I’ve always said crazy s—. That’s why I’m Kanye.'”

She insists, however, that his intentions are understandable to her as his wife;

“I always know what Kanye’s intentions are and what he’s trying to say, but I also know that they’re going to write a headline and people are going assume that that’s exactly what you said and what you meant,” she continued.

“He didn’t say slavery is a choice, he was saying, ‘If you’re going to still be enslaved for another 400 years, then that’s some bulls—.’ That, as a wife, is really frustrating to see the media take everything and run with it.”

The timing was extremely unfortunate; Kris Jenner was set to appear on the Ellen DeGeneres show, who commented on the whole debacle.

“I just want to make everything better,” said Jenner, 63. “You know me. I want everybody to get along, I want everybody to be happy, I want everybody to understand one another, communicate.”

“Even thought Kanye went on TMZ this morning and made some controversial comments, my loyalty really lies with Kanye,” Jenner continued.

“It’s really my job to be there to support Kanye and be somebody in his life that offers him love and support and not criticism.”

Once the scandal was settled, Kim flew out to Wyoming to support Kanye at his album launch party.

“I am so excited to be in Wyoming for Kanye’s listening party,” she said. “After TMZ, Kanye changed his whole album. I’m just excited so many people came out to support him. … I’m glad that now we can just have fun, listen to the music and have a good time.”

“I obviously support him and will always, but he likes to speak for himself and I like to speak for myself,” she added. “As his wife, I just have to express how I feel and have those private conversations with him and help him better communicate what he has to say.”

Kim had also been working with the White House to attempt to commute 63-year-old Alice Maria Johnson's life sentence for a first time non-violent drug offence.

“My first phone call was to Ivanka [Trump]. I just felt like as a woman she would really feel for this woman the way that I connected with Alice,” Kim said. “She did and she connected me with her husband Jared Kushner, so I actually have a meeting with the president of the United States next week to discuss Alice Johnson.”

According to Kim, it was a "tricky" situation, as she disagrees with Donald Trump's polarising views.

“I’ve been so straightforward with Jared. I have different views, I was at Hillary Clinton fundraisers. So this might not be a popular opinion, but I’ll talk to whoever I need to talk to to get the job done.”

“I know we have one shot to plead our case. Knowing that someone’s life is in your hand, it’s a really scary feeling,” she added. “We have to just do justice by Alice.”

She then flew to Tennessee to meet Johnson in person, after Trump shockingly commuted her sentence.

“It’s just such a satisfying moment. To know that she’s been behind bars for 22 years and she’s now home — it’s really amazing,” she said. “Just seeing Alice with her huge family, it’s like me and my big family. If I couldn’t be with them for two decades, that would break my soul.”

“That’s what so many people don’t get. This has nothing to do with politics. F— politics,” she added. “I don’t really know anything. This is: Get in front of the person — the only person in the world that can make this decision — and try to change their mind.”

“Every time I think that I’ve had a crazy year, I live the next year and it’s even crazier. … On this journey of getting Alice out, I have learned so much about criminal justice is and really how messed up our system is,” Kim said.

"There’s so much that has to be done … now that that is in me, I can’t stop at Alice. There has to be so much more than I can do.”

The season wrapped up, the family reflected on the addition of three beautiful new grandchildren; Stormi, True and Chicago.

All in all, Keeping Up with the Kardashians displayed the crazy year which the clan has had, but the positivity which they have for each other was the most heartwarming aspect.

Bring on the next season, and even more drama, we say.


Chrissie Teigen has never made any secret of her disdain for the Trump family, and after nine years vocalising it, the Lip Sync Battle star was eventually blocked by Donald Trump on Twitter in July of last year.

‘LOL, no one likes you’ was her admittedly juvenile response to yet another ‘fake news’ rant by the POTUS,  but it was clearly the straw that broke the camel’s back.

And whether Chrissie hopes to elicit a similar response from his daughter Ivanka or not, she’s going the right away about if a recent tweet is anything to go by.

Contributing to the current narrative surrounding Oprah’s inspirational speech at Sunday night’s Golden Globes, Ivanka praised the veteran broadcaster and encouraged her followers to unite against sexism and harassment.

Given both her father’s reputation with regards the issue and her own dogged defence of his conduct, it’s hardly surprising many Twitter users felt somewhat irritated by Ivanka’s contribution, and this included Chrissie.

Responding to Ivanka’s tweek, Chrissie opted for another playground retort, writing: “Ew, Go away.”

The tweet has garnered a mixed response today, with some Twitter users questioning her disdain and others praising her stance.

“Further proof that liberals only support women that have their same political views. All other women be damned,” wrote one.

“Look at all these chumpettes trying to get angry at you, hilarious! You say ewww but their role model says grab their p******! And the girl you are being "mean" to doesn't support his accusers & has not helped women get equal pay. Keep going Chrissy!” wrote another in contrast.


In her recently released memoir Raising Trump, the US president's first wife, Ivana, reflects on her extraordinary life and the raising of her three children.

And while we're guessing the book is full life lessons and inside info about her former husband, there's one particular revelation that has really got people talking – Ivanka Trump's 'punk phase'.

The president's daughter made the comments in section she penned for her mother's new book, saying how she “dyed her hair blue” and was “really into Nirvana.”

“During my punk phase in the nineties, I was really into Nirvana. My wardrobe consisted of ripped corduroy jeans and flannel shirts,” she wrote.

“One day after school, I dyed my hair blue. Mom wasn’t a fan of this decision.”

Unsure what to do with this information, Twitter users did what they do best – made a complete mockery out of the whole thing.

This whole situation has taught us two things:

1. Ivanka probably wasn't as 'punk' as she thought she was. 

2. Never ever claim to to have been a part of any subculture, because Twitter will go in on you. 


It’s fair to say that Ivanka Trump probably doesn’t deserve a huge portion of the flak she receives, after all she’s found herself in an extremely difficult position – one she never asked for in the first place.

Following the election of her father, Donald Trump, as US President, Ivankas’s clothing line was dropped by a number of US retailers and just last week she was booed and jeered by crowds in Berlin when she defended her father’s family values.

It has now emerged that during the presidential campaign, Ivanka became frustrated with her father’s unapologetic nature.

When Access Hollywood released audio tapes which showed Donald Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women, the presidential candidate offered a lackluster apology to those who were offended by his words.

The campaign team knew this wouldn’t be enough, and according to a report by The New York Times, Ivanka urged him to give a ‘’full-throated apology’’. Rather unsurprisingly, Trump refused and Ivanka left the room on the verge of tears.

Ivanka kept her opinions quiet with regards to many issues that popped up during the campaign but according to Glamour, the business woman has hinted her disapproval of some things her father says, though she prefers not to reveal those opinions publicly.

Following her father’s election, Ivanka took up an official position in the White House, although she admitted to The Times that she still has a lot to learn.

“I do believe that in time I’ll get to the right place. In the short run I’ll have missteps, and, in some cases, I’ll take shots that I could have avoided if I had publicly said what I think.”



Ivanka Trump was booed and jeered during her first international outing as a White House advisor following comments she made praising Donald Trump’s views on women.

She is in Berlin to participate in talks aimed at encouraging women’s economic empowerment, but it wasn’t long before to topic of discussion turned to her father.

In a video obtained by The Independent, a reporter can be heard asking the first daughter about the President’s attitude towards women, to which she replied, "I've certainly heard the criticism from the media, and that's been perpetuated."

She continued to defend her father’s actions, insisting that her own personal experience, and the experience of ‘thousands’ of other women did not add up with the media’s portrayal.

"He encouraged me and enabled me to thrive. I grew up in a house where there was no barrier to what I could accomplish beyond my own perseverance and my own tenacity."

The panel discussion was also attended by German Chancellor, Angel Merkel, and IMF director, Christine Lagarde.

This is not the first time Ivanka has been the subject of public criticism.

Just last month she was impersonated by Scarlett Johansson in a Saturday Night Live sketch
