Kim Kardashian is without a doubt one of the most successful reality stars to ever come from reality stardom, and Kim has managed to not only prove that reality fame doesn’t have to be 15 minutes, she’s managed to stretch it out for a full hour. Kim may have multiple businesses and do a lot more than her signature reality show “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” but it’s her personal life that has kept her in the headlines for the last several years. Since ending her romance with Ray J, her sex tape partner, Kim has been dating professional athletes and she quickly learned how to use the paparazzi to her advantage thanks to the sharp lessons from her mother Kris Jenner. Kim was supposed to lose her fame after her quickie marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries crashed and burned in 72 days, but her next relationship quickly made her a staple again the media.

Kim has been dating rapper Kanye West since last April, and the couple’s romance immediately became the target of criticism since it happened so soon after her split from Kris. In fact, some even claim she cheated on Kris Humphries with Kanye, and then of course it was confirmed by Amber Rose that Kim and Kanye were sleeping together while Kanye was with Amber and Kim was with Reggie.

The couple is still going strong and they are now parents to baby girl North West, but Kim still hasn’t been completely accepted by Hollywood’s elite. Although Kim seems to be rubbing elbow’s with today’s biggest stars because of Kanye, every now and then she gets reminded that she still isn’t quite an A Lister herself and  she’s subjected to some shade.

Oprah Winfrey, Kim, Kanye and Diddy attended Jimmy Lovine’s party the other night, and although Oprah was photographed kicking it with Kim, it appears she didn’t want the public to know that.

Kim took to Instagram to post a few photos of her sitting next to Oprah:

Shortly after, Oprah uploaded her own photo from the night to Instagram and she made sure Kim was cropped out of the photo:

    Good! I was disgusted to see her sitting next to Oprah anyway. I can’t believe we uplift porn stars in today’s society. Stay in your lane Kim. You are not a real celebrity!

    The funny thing is that was the whole reason Kim wanted to be with Kanye. She knew being with him would get her in places with A listers. But you can’t make people accept you. It’s a choice and most of them still don’t respect Kim because she didn’t work hard to get where she is.

      Thank you. I don’t blame Kim for wanting to make her whole fam wealthy, but what I don’t like is her self-entitled attitude. She really wants people to treat her like she’s A list, and she’s done nothing to warrant that kind of treatment. She really needs to stay in her lane and sit down somewhere.

    Why is she near Oprah anyway?! Kanye, you fool! Keep her away from our hardworking, successful role models!

    Damn that’s cold because she definitely interviewed Kim for ratings. But she’s not good enough to be on your Instagram? Phony.

    Kim tries so hard. And every single time she gets put right back in her place. She can have more kids with Kanye and even marry him, but she’ll always be that girl that got fame from a sex tape with Ray J out of all people. LOL.

    I don’t feel bad for Kim. She has no talent and got where she is from lying on her back. I and many others can’t respect that. I guess Oprah can’t either.

    I just think Oprah cropped Kim out because she felt like she wasn’t important. Not everyone thinks Kim is deserving of fame or even being talked about in the media. It doesn’t matter that she stays in the press, she’s still a talentless porn star who sleeps her way into importance. She’s only with Kanye for what he can do for her.

    Kim is delusional. She really thinks she’s important because her camp pays the press to talk about her all day everyday. No Kim, you’re still a nobody. You just f-ck the right people. But when you get to be your mom’s age, you’ll see why talent and intelliegnce trumps plastic surgery and whoredom. Enjoy it now Kim.

    Kim molds herself into whoever she’s with. I really believe she has very low self esteem.
    Kim needs to buy a brain with that money she has and stop letting a man influence her all the time.And she wants out of the reallity show, cuz her image is tainted, she only famous due to her sextape and the tv show, and people are always saying that she is a fame wh0re.She thinks if she stays out of the reallity tv spot light and try other things that people will change their minds, and the A-listers Celebs (like the Carters,Gwen Paltrow,Oprah,Anna Wintour,etc.) will see her with other eyes.And she knows if she sticks with Kanye she will always continue to be famous. Well done mis Oprah.It is funny, cuz Kim on her istagram she posted the one with her on it.lol

    If Kim wants to be a real celebrity and get some respect, she needs to go get some talent. Go hire an acting coach and learn how to do something! Just taking photo ops all day and smashing famous men will not earn you respect.

    that is the only photo of everyone actually paying attention and was probably supposed to only be oprah and the guys so why must it be shade ?people continue to be negative..


    September 23, 2013 at 2:09 pm

    Uh yeah, it’s shade. Only an idiot or a Kardashian fan can’t see that. There was no need to crop Kim out, but she did so because she probably feels like most of us who feel she shouldn’t be famous in the first place. Now if we could just crop her out of our lives and out of the media. I’ll keep hope alive.

    People stay shading the hell out of Kim. Didn’t Anna Wintour just crop her out of a photo too at the Met Gala? LOL. She needs to learn her place. If she wants to be taken seriously, she needs to go develop a talent. Until then, this will keep happening. As it should.

    I don’t think it’s shade, I just think Oprah didn’t feel like Kim needed to be in the photo. And she didn’t. What does she do? Why is she famous? The people who matter are in the photo. Kim’s stans may think she’s somebody special, but the real celebs know the truth and treat her accordingly.

    She didn’t crop Kim out, she had her take the picture because she’s not important. LOL. J/k

    This is just the begining, soon you’ll hear that she parted ways with her momanager, and gets new friends.

    I wouldn’t say shade, I just think Oprah knows people would have judged her for being nice to Kim. It’s the same reason Beyonce tried to hide the fact they were cool. People hate Kim and if you befriend her the public will bash you. And your image will take a hit. And that’s why Kim is like a poison to celebs. They don’t want the backlash that comes with being friends with her. I don’t know why people hate Kim so much, she just did what most people would have done if they were in her shoes. Why not make your whole fam rich and famous off a sex tape if you could? Why not free them from being a slave to corporate america if you can? Most people would do the same thing she did.

      Sorry! But most people I know wouldn’t use a sex tape as a stepping stone to fame, cause they would’ve used the sense God gave them, and figured out their reputations would be mud to their families, and in their communities. Kim’s fame whore of a mother used her daughter to get a couple Hermes bags, but at the end of the day, she cost her daughter any respect she could’ve hoped to garner by actually working an honest living for her money.

      And Kim schills everything, and anything for a buck! If that’s not being a “slave to corporate america”, I don’t know what is!

        Kim was dealt a hand and she played it brilliantly. I respect her for her hustle Lot of you would love to be in kim position instead of going to a 9-5 living from pay check to pay check without a decent health coverage don’t know if you have a job the next day. It a capitalist country she has a product and people are buying.. some o you go through lots of men and have nothing to show for Kim worth close to 40 mil she build an empire. you don’t have to like her ,but respect her hustle
