Kim and Khloe Kardashian Play the “Kylie Pregnancy Game”
Kim Kardashian apparently does not read The Hollywood Gossip.
It provides us with some solace, however, to at least realize that she doesn't read the Internet at all.
That's our main takeaway from this sneak peek at this Sunday's Keeping Up with the Kardashians episode, as Kim confides with Khloe early on about the major secret everyone in the family has been tasked with… well… keeping.
This secret is that Kylie Jenner is pregnant with Travis Scott's baby.
“The funnest game ever is the Kylie pregnancy game, just to see what people think,” says Kim to her sister. “Like, there were pictures of her out on TMZ and she looked so skinny.”
“I know, ’cause it’s the angle,” replied Khloe. “They got her from face-on. But if they got a side shot, it would have been over for her.”
Yes, game over.
The implication here is that no one outside of Kylie's very close circle is aware that she's expecting…
… even though pretty much EVERYone was aware that Kylie was expecting.
We helped break this news back in September, and we're pretty sure these Season 15 episodes were filmed in November or December.
(Remember the fight Kim and Khloe got into with Kourtney about her not showing up for the Christmas card shoot?)
Still, the family evidently believes that anyone outside of, like, Calabasas is clueless simply because Kylie herself had not confirmed her pregnancy at the time of filming.
Later in this clip, Kim tells Jenner that her expecting state “has been the best-kept secret of our generation," which is just an amazing quote.
“I’m not trying to keep it secret,” Jenner says. “I’m really doing this for myself.”
(Editor's Note: You were, by definition, keeping it a secret. The basis for said secret-keeping wasn't really the question here.)
“Your friends deserve awards. Like, seriously,” Kim responds. “Now you know you have some real ones. That wouldn’t have happened in my day.”
Jenner never actually addresses her situation until AFTER she gave birth, finally saying once Stormi Webster entered the world:
I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions.
I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world.
I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how.
There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned.
I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness.
