Kim Kardashian’s recent trip to the UK was no coincidence, it seems her all-controlling ‘momager’ Kris Jenner chose London specifically to re-launch Kim’s new image following her damaging divorce.
After a difficult year where Kim was accused of faking her marriage for ratings and flour bombed by PETA the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star was in need of a reputation makeover.
With several press appearances and loved up shots with new boyfriend Kanye West, her London trip has given the curvaceous brunette a chance to shine away from the ongoing divorce drama with ex-husband Kris Humphries.
“Kris really wanted to expand the Kardashian fan base and decided with Ryan Seacrest that London would be the perfect location,” a source told HollywoodLife, “Because it’s a hip city that attracts a lot of celebrities and it’s not too far from NYC.”
Kim, who left London for the Cannes Film Festival earlier this week, was a huge success in London and with all eyes on the British capital this summer for Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee and Olympic Games it seems the Kardashians could be back in force.
The insider confirmed that as Kim was so well received in the UK plans for a London based spin-off with Kim and Khloe opening a new store in the city are almost finalised.
“The show would focus on Kim and Khloe opening up their store in London,” the source revealed.
“They are considering the name Kim and Khloe Take London, but nothing is confirmed yet.”
As well as a distraction from Kris Humphries, the ‘momager’ also thinks that it will keep the heat off Lamar Odom. The NBA star has been struggling with his career recently and confirmed that he would be taking a break from the cameras to improve his game.
“They all think that a new show based in London will be a perfect distraction,” the source confirmed.
“It’s also a great distraction for Khloe and Lamar. Kris wants fans to focus on Khole and her adventures, instead of concentrating on Lamar and what may or may not happen to his basketball career.”
With Lamar waiting to hear if he has been selected for the US Olympic basketball squad, it seems the chances of a very Kardashian summer in London are on the cards.
