Kim Kardashian and Kanye West touch off security breach at JFK Airport

They’re gonna touch the sky — but not before getting hassled at the airport like everyone else. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s arrival at JFK Airport set off a security scare Tuesday morning when a starstruck staffer helped the pair bypass a checkpoint. The power couple known as Kimye had returned from Brazil, passed through customs and were transferring to a flight bound for Los Angeles when an American Airlines employee helped them slip by a screening area, a TSA spokesman said. “An airline employee escorted the two travelers through a non-public area in order to provide expedited access to their domestic flight,” the spokesman said. “In doing so, the airline employee violated security protocols by permitting the travelers to bypass the TSA security checkpoint.” Kim K. and her baby daddy made it on their connecting flight, but a TSA employee forced them to disembark. “TSA officials learned of the violation and conducted a private screening of the two passengers in the area of the jetway. The passengers were cleared to board their flight,” the TSA spokesman said. The plane was delayed for roughly an hour while the superstar socialite and hip-hop big-shot endured the inconveniences familiar to any frequent flier. Still, the TSA spokesman said the pair were not to blame for the security breach, which was first reported by the gossip site TMZ.com.. The parents-to-be were spotted checking out Carnival celebration from a hotel balcony in Rio De Janeiro Sunday. Join the Conversation: Continue Reading

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: Are they ready for Paris (and vice versa)?

Sacre bleu! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West want to trade the City of Angels for the City of Light. Recent reports have Kimye in such a hurry to move to Paris, they’ve been scouting Parisian hospitals for the birth of le bebe in July. That gives the fame-seeking pair little time to get used to their elegant new home base, which is a far cry from flashy Los Angeles and Miami. How will Kim adjust to life without Rodeo Drive shopping sprees, a parking spot for her Phantom Bentley or, gasp, personal training with Tracy Anderson? And more important, how is she going to solve her frequent fashion failures so she can fit in with the city’s glitterati? “They’re definitely going to need some advice, especially Kim,” says celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch, whose star-studded client list includes Francophiles Halle Berry and Salma Hayek. “The difference between Kim and Halle and Salma is, Salma is married to a Frenchman and Halle is dating someone who’s French. Kim just wants to keep up with Les Joneses.” If Kim is serious about becoming a Frenchwoman, though, she’ll need to make some big changes, starting with her shoes. “We do a lot of walking in Paris, and since she won’t be able to park her big car near her house, she’s not going to be able to get around in those high heels,” explains FIAF (French Institute Alliance Francaise) membership director Celine Mazieres. “I recommend ballet flats.” Mazieres also suggests a less tacky look, starting with more natural makeup and cutting down on the designer accessories, while Bloch puts it more bluntly: “Less slutty, more subtle.” To that end, Bloch urges Kim to hook up with a new group of Parisian besties, who can keep her company when Kanye’s touring while also acting as a sort of personal fashion police. “Marion Cotillard has been on the cover of American Vogue, which Kim has always wanted,” he Continue Reading
