Kim Kardashian will make her first public appearance before attending her half-sister’s Sweet 16 party, to avoid overshadowing her big day.
The star has been in hiding since giving birth to her first child, daughter North, with her boyfriend Kanye West.
Kim is aware that her return to the public spotlight is hotly-anticipated and she doesn’t want to steal any attention from her sibling Kylie Jenner
The 32-year-old brunette will attend Kylie’s Sweet 16 bash on August 17, but plans to step out before then.
“Believe it or not, it’s not all about Kim,” a source told New York Daily News’ Confidenti@l column. “She really wants to go to Kylie’s party, and when it comes to the family, [Kim’s mom] Kris wants everyone there. Kim is just working with Kris to figure out the best plan of action.”
Speculation is growing that Kim will return to the limelight by appearing on her mom-and-manager Kris’ new talk show. While this will prove a ratings boost for the programme, Kris has promised to only address certain subjects during the small screen chat.
“Kris won’t ask anything that Kim can’t make money off of in the future,” the source added. “They’ll keep it light and just talk diet and exercise. No baby photo will be shown.”
Meanwhile, Kim and Kanye are preparing to move into their new Bel Air home.
The property has undergone extensive renovations this year and they are now putting the final touches to it by splashing out on furniture and fittings.
“She ripped out the entire interior and started over,” a source explained. “Kanye hated the way it was decorated when they bought it. He’s never satisfied. Every day, he sees something new that’s outrageous.”
According to insiders the work on the house has gone way over Kim’s budget, with the pair apparently spending £500,000 on gold-plated toilets, £750,000 on six special-edition £125,000 luxury Savoir Royal State Beds and a Swarovski-encrusted fridge freezer.
“The toilets, the fireplace and every other nook and cranny is approved by Yeezus,” revealed the source.
