When it was first announced that Kim Kardashian and Kate Middleton would be giving birth almost at the same time, the media exploded in anticipation. I’d like to think that the freaking future HEIR to the throne of the United Kingdom would merit more attention than the stupid Kardashians, but sadly, that was not the case.
However, it would have probably sucked for Kim because you know that the majority of the attention would have still been focused on Kate, considering that the rest of the world cares significantly more about royalty than reality famewhores in the US. So when Kim’s birth came early, it was probably a blessing in disguise. But now she’s soon going to fade into irrelevancy when Kate Middleton’s baby is born this month. Kim won’t even get a full month in the spotlight – how will she live with that?! Well, by attempting to steal Kate’s thunder of course.
The latest issue from OK! Magazine shows Kim’s engagement exclusive on the cover, and the one thing that could trump news of Kim’s baby is news of Kim’s engagement to Kanye West. But again – if she announces it now, it will be old news by the time Kate’s baby is born and it won’t have the momentum to continue past this month. Thus, Kim is reportedly planning on announcing her engagement after Kate gives birth – ensuring that she capitalizes on the media frenzy, and also steals the spotlight. I’d like to think that her ploy won’t work and no one will care in the face of the Royal heir, but I’ve been wrong before so let’s see how it plays out.
What do you guys think? If this is true, wouldn’t it be an absolutely shameless move on Kim Kardashian’s part to steal away attention from Kate Middleton? But then again, it probably won’t work [I hope]. Let us know what you think in the comments.
