“Family First” though?
Kim Kardashian Opens Up About Rob’s Wedding Absence, Weight/Depression Issues
Apparently, Kimmy Cakes is just as tired of the saga of Fat Rob as the rest of us are. She opened up to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live last night about how Rob very unceremoniously let her know that he wouldn’t be attending the KimYe wedding the morning of, via e-mail, and that at this point she’s basically over it and unbothered by whatever he’s going through. Via DailyMail:
He famously fled Europe just a day before his big sister’s big day.
Now, Kim Kardashian, 33 has finally addressed the rumours surrounding brother Rob, 27, missing out on her wedding to Kanye West in Italy in May this year.
Speaking on Tuesday evening to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, Kim confirmed that he did not break the news to her face to face.
‘My brother and I are so close, he is one of my best friends,’ she began, trying to downplay the rift.
‘You know, when you film so much and he’s not on that much you only see the juicy parts.’
Of him missing her wedding, she said: ‘He sent me a long email the morning of that he was gonna leave – and there was no fight.
‘And I just thought, “You know this is my day I’m not even going to worry about it”.
‘I hope he’s OK, I totally understand that he wouldn’t want to see a lot of people if he was feeling uncomfortable, and you can only pray and wish that someone would not miss out on more memories in life. Because life is about memories.
‘So fix the problem, that’s just how I am, but we didn’t even have a conversation about it,’ Kim added
She insisted that rather than a feud it was just their different styles of dealing with his problems – specifically his weight gain – that caused awkwardness.
‘I’m definitely a tough love kind of person,’ she said. ‘If I don’t like something that’s going on in my life, I change it, and I don’t sit and complain about it for a year.
‘I’m just a different personality.
‘So I try and encourage him. But once you don’t make that change for so long and it’s not happening I just get frustrated and my patience runs out.’
She also made a clear diss at Rob’s ex, Rita Ora, when asked in a quiz which of his exes she would rather have as a sister-in-law.
‘I would say Adrienne Bailon,’ Kim said when asked to choose between her or Rita.
‘I know she’s a really sweet girl and she has good intentions and she has a good heart’ – clearly suggesting she does not feel the same for British singer Rita.
She’d choose Adrienne despite how she dragged her a couple weeks back? Interesting…
At least she’s trying to support and encourage her brother…in her own way. She does have her own family and own things going on, and Rob HAS been on this for a while. Is it understandable that she’s done with the issue and offers support from afar?
