Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are new parents to baby girl North West and have been since June, yet no one has seen any photos of the baby and Kim herself went into “hiding” just up until last week because sources claim she didn’t want to be photographed until her body was on point. Now that things are back to normal and Kim’s back to photo ops and her huge social media presence, the Kardashians and Jenners are working diligently to save Kris Jenner’s struggling daytime talk show. As we reported recently, her show got a six week test run with FOX but unlike “The Real” which raked in the ratings with the help of Tamar Braxton and Tamera Mowry, Kris’ ratings have been declining since its premiere. In fact, many seem to think it won’t get the green light to return from FOX and Kris is reportedly so worried the show will get the axe that she’s asked Kanye West to commit to his first interview since the birth of North and spill all the beans on fatherhood and his relationship with Kim Kardashian.

US Weekly says a source told the publication Kanye agreed to open up about everything from his rocky relationship with the media, his love for Kim Kardashian and even being a new dad to their daughter North West. The publication reports:

The insider tells Us the rapper is “really bringing it” for the interview and opens up about the baby, living with Kris Jenner, his relationship with the press and love for Kardashian.

West even joked that he’s been “so in love” with Kim, whom he began dating in April 2012, that he thought about “playing sports.” (Kardashian, 32, was previously married to NBA player Kris Humphries and dated NFL player Reggie Bush.)


The interview was also confirmed by FOX and the network posted a photo of a grinning Kanye on the set with Kris Jenner:

The interview will air this Friday.


  1. Kanye should be focusing on trying to fix his fleeting music career. That last album was terrible. People were willing to look past the whole Kim thing in exchange for good music, but he’s not even doing that anymore. Sadly, I think he’s just about finished.

  2. There was a point of time when I would have said Kanye was too good for this. But now I understand that he’s really not. He fits right in with that family. Perfect match.

    1. I think Kanye is still dealing with the death of his mother. He has completely lost his mind!…sad to say his music, personal life, and ridiculous behavior will continue to fail….especially being with someone like Kim and the rest of her family who needs attention to make it through the day!

  3. Kanye can’t save this struggle show. People just don’t like Kris. I’m not even sure why she thought this would work out for her. People need to like you for your talk show to even succeed.

  4. It’s so sad someone as talented as Kanye is now only being talked about for his relationship with Kim. That’s what happens when these men hook up with her. They lose their identity and just become a part of the Kardashian machine. I hope it was worth it Kanye.

  5. I won’t be watching. All he’s going to do is hype Kim’s fake azz the whole time. He’s been programmed to be a true Kardashian.

  6. I don’t understand people’s fascination with Kim and this relationship. Kim has no talent, so she has to work hard to stay in the news by her personal life and staged photo ops. She can’t be single because if she’s not in a relationship, there’s nothing to talk about. She’s only with Kanye because he’s the only idiot left who will date her in public (low self esteem men are a perfect fit for her), and after they get married Kim will divorce him because she’ll go nuts when they start losing their appeal, as all married celebs do. She doesn’t love that fool. She is just like her momma. Everything they do from the men they end up with is all about money and status. Smh.

  7. I’m so ready for the K’s to go away. I need the media to stop giving them so much attention. I guess paying off the press is keeping them relevant longer than we all imagined it would.

  8. This is a joke. This will not help her show that only 3 people watched from the get-go. Why would she think that people want to see her host a talk show with her not even having a personality. Kanye is really losing it completly and going on this show will not make it better. Lord help the all. I could care less about anything Kardarshian related, I pay it no mind. You’ll get no ratings or views from me.
