For the past few weeks, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West haven't missed a chance to flaunt their new publicity stunt coupledom, appearing together at various public outings and events. So we assumed that Kim would attend the Met Ball alongside her fashion snob hubby Kanye--but come the big night, the reality star was nowhere to be found. So, what happened? Could Kardashian have actually, gasp, chosen not to attend an event? Did KimYe have a fight?
According to Radar Online (so, um, believe what you will...), it was neither: The gossip site reported yesterday that Kardashian was forbidden to attend the Met Ball by the event's co-chair Anna Wintour. “Anna hates Kim,” a 'source' told RadarOnline. "Why would she be invited to the event? It is all the biggest stars in the world and Kim doesn’t fit that bill at all."
Apparently, Wintour's hatred of Kim is so deep that the Editor-in-Chief wouldn't even let the starlet buy a ticket. For charity. Hmm. The source says: "The Met Gala is $25,000 a ticket, but Kim can’t even buy her way in, Anna Wintour does NOT want her there!" We did notice that Kanye did look rather scowly the whole night...could this be why?
We're going to go out on a limb here and say that amidst planning a massive gala and leading her staff at Vogue, Anna Wintour probably didn't take a break from her schedule to ban Kim Kardashian. Still, it's interesting to note that while Kardashian has been nearly omnipresent in every other glossy publication, she has yet to appear in the pages of Vogue--and that's apparently no mistake. The unnamed source told RadarOnline: "Anna Wintour would allow Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue over her dead body." Okay then! [Ed. note: We have heard rumors that Kim would appear in Vogue--but it's true it hasn't happened yet.]
On the other hand, maybe Kim K has learned a little something about the dangers of overexposure from her last relationship and decided to sit the Met Ball out. Hey, we can hope right?
In any case, whatever the reason Kim wasn't there, we're kind of glad.
