Keep­ing Up with the Kar­dashi­ans

It was two years ago that Kim Kar­dashian was fa­mously robbed at gun­point for an es­ti­mated $5 mil­lion dur­ing Paris fash­ion week. And for the first time since, the me­dia mogul made her re­turn to the French city in sup­port of her and Kanye West’s dear friend Vir­gil Abloh, who was de­but­ing his first fash­ion col­lec­tion there as the art di­rec­tor for Louis Vuit­ton menswear. “I com­plain about peo­ple I’ve done busi­ness with miss­ing im­por­tant mo­ments of mine, mo­ments of ours, so I can’t do the same thing to Vir­gil,” Kanye said, con­vinc­ing his wife to make the trip. “I don’t want to put any more pres­sure on you to go to Paris.” Kim even­tu­ally de­cided that join­ing her hus­band for the trek over the pond was the “right thing to do” and her wor­ries were soon set on more triv­ial things, like what she was go­ing to wear while sit­ting in the front row of the most talked-about fash­ion show of the year. Af­ter pulling up late wear­ing a turquoise en­sem­ble from the col­lec­tion, Kim gushed about the clothes, while Kanye and Vir­gil shared an emo­tional em­brace on the cat­walk. Kim con­cluded that the only way to get over bad me­mories was to cre­ate new ones. “I think I could go back, and I could spend more time and feel safe and com­fort­able,” she said.

The Voice

The Top 8 semi­fi­nal­ists so­lid­i­fied their spot in the com­pe­ti­tion and a ma­jor sur­prise re­sults show rocked the stu­dio dur­ing an event­ful week on The Voice. Fol­low­ing an epic set of per­for­mances by the re­main­ing singers, it was 39-year-old Dave Fen­ley from Blake Shel­ton’s team as well as 22-year-old DeAn­dre Nico and 13-year-old Rea­gan Strange from Adam Levine’s team who wound up in the bot­tom three. While the vo­cal­ists had one last shot to sing for their lives and earn enough viewer votes to stay in the com­pe­ti­tion, Rea­gan gave up her op­por­tu­nity to hit the stage dur­ing the In­stant Save be­cause she was sick. Adam pleaded with home-view­ers to give her a chance any­way, even over DeAn­dre, who had belted an emo­tional ren­di­tion of John Le­gend’s All of Me just mo­ments be­fore. “There is an un­be­liev­ably tal­ented lit­tle girl right now, who is not able to fight for her po­si­tion on this show, and you (DeAn­dre) were for­tu­nate tonight to be able to sing,” Adam said. “I can­not sing for Rea­gan. I have two lit­tle girls at home and the thought of break­ing her heart by not urg­ing ev­ery­one to give this girl a shot, to go and re­deem her­self next week, would be too far be­neath me.” The fans lis­tened and voted Rea­gan through to the semi­fi­nals as Dave and DeAn­dre were cut from the com­pe­ti­tion.
