Kim Kardashian’s disaster tourism trip to Oprah’s Haiti therapy suite

KIM Kardashian has been to Haiti. The National Enquirer watches the earth move and screams:

“OUTRAGE AS KIM MEETS EARTHQUAKE ORPHANS!”

The NE says the trip to Haiti was all part of Kim Kardashian’s plan to make herself look good. During a 48-hour stay, Kim and her mother Kris Jenner checked into the $1,000 a-night Presidential suite at the Karibe Hotel, “the best lodging in Port –au-prince” – a title akin to being the poshest woman in Wayne Rooney’s harem. Most damaging of all, Kim and her momager met orphans bussed in to meet her and after shaking hands, reportedly, wiped her paws with hand sanitizer.

This is compared and contrasted to the goodness of Oprah Winfrey, who visited the J/P HRO settlement camp and passed the time “talking with some of the refugees through an interpreter”. Like Kim, she was well photographed.

A source says:

“Oprah believed Kim went down to Haiti to soley repair her image, and not to help out with the relief effort.”

To put the tin lid on the horror of celebrity disaster tourism, Kim took part in a fashion show and strutted up and down and up and down and up and down to much effect. A source bitches:

“When she was asked to get up on the runway, Kim out on a shy face ‘Who me?’ face as if she was surprised. But then she climbed right up. Miss Glamour herself …while people are starving, living in plastic and tin huts in refugee camps.”

And that just in New Orleans. Get a load of Haiti!

Kris Jenner then read the NE and became sad. She responds by saying that who cares about the naysayers. It’s all about the impoverished many. She pledges that for every bad word said about her and her kkkkkin she will pay for an orphan’s schooling. Well, no. She actually said on Kim’s blog:

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 then 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 of their beautiful jewelry after the fashion show!! Reading this made me so disappointed in the media.

The media. If you want truth you need to go to the Kardashian mouth:

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.

How many I’s are there in Haiti. Just one.

Make that two, becseu a source says:

“She [Oprah] also thinks Kim tried to upstage her by arriving two days earlier than she did. Kim distracted media attention from Oprah…”

Hey, Kim. Oprah saw these loser first. Get outta here. Can’t you find your own disaster and refugee camp? Oprah saw Haiti first. Haiti is hers. You, Kim, can have the Dadaab refugee camps in Kenya. Angelina Jolie double booked.

But Oprah and Kim are only doing what aid agencies do – heading to the disaster zone to be seen on the telly. And maybe Kim Kardashian is better than Oprah. It’s not schools and homes they poor and destitute needs; it’s shopping, blog posts and the chance for the celebrity tourist to go on spiritual journey in which the previously useless refugees can to play the part of much needed extras.  Sleep tight, Haiti. You helped the Kardashian discover themselves. Haitis is no logner a country. Haiti is an exotic therapy suite for the rich famous…
