Rumor: Was Kim Kardashian’s Trip to Haiti All for Publicity? [Eye Candy Treat]
The National Enquirer recently reported that Kim Kardashian's trip to Haiti was not to give back, but to revamp her damaged image. As Kimberly tells it, the reality starlett when to Haiti to hand out presents to refugee children from the country's massive earthquake last year. But according to those in Port-au-Prince, including television producer, Steve Azo, the Hollywood beauty had no intentions of giving back to the kids.
"This visit was not about helping Haiti’s poor people – it was about helping Kim Kardashian revamp her image. Kim’s trip was NOT about helping Haiti. She just came down here for a photo op and then flew back home to her celebrity life. She did nothing for Haiti.”
In an attempt to clean up another public scandal, Kim's team swooped in for damage control, and she took to her blog to clear the air.
“While my experience was completely life-changing… a very emotional and surprisingly positive journey that I will never forget, some media outlets have tried to tarnish the motive behind my visit and have written completely ridiculous and untrue things. The National Enquirer wrote that I went to a fashion show in Haiti and spent a fortune pampering myself! The truth is that I was at the Haitian Artisan Fair, where the amazing men and women who make their jewelry and crafts sell them to visitors to make a living, and I bought some beautiful jewelry!! Reading this made me so disappointed in the media.
Taking such a positive thing and writing something malicious and untrue. The journalists obviously didn’t bother to do their research and instead published a ridiculous story to sell copies. I have ignored all of this until now, but because I wanted to write a few blogs about my experience, I felt I needed to address this first. I have become accustomed to dealing with rumors and lies spread about my family or my relationships, and have learned to ignore it to a certain extent. But when a magazine makes the decision to twist the truth and write lies like that, it belittles the entire experience we had in Haiti, and I won’t let them do that.
I think it’s important that I share my experiences with you all, rather than you read false reports in the media. I have some really great stories and photos from my trip and I’m so excited to share them with you all! Xo”
Oh Kimmy, what will it be next?
