The new season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York (one of the umpteen Kardashian shows who all seem interchangeable and whose names I forget) will chronicle the breakup of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries‘ 72-day marriage. According to the Daily Mail, one of the reasons for the split was that Kim took a class with a nude yoga instructor and it made her husband uncomfortable. Um, sure, whatever.
On last night’s season premiere, Kim and Kourtney hosted a yoga class in their penthouse apartment and the instructor was naked, even though Kim (for once) doesn’t take her clothes off:
In the culmination of the hour-long show, Kris is left incensed after walking in on Kim, her sister Kourtney and friends taking part in a naked yoga session.
As it turns out, it is only the male instructor who bares everything – but even though Kim keeps her clothes one, Kris is not happy about her being in the company of a naked man.
‘That is disgusting,’ he exclaims as he opens the door.
‘This is my home. This is disrespectful,’ he goes on.
‘You are so immature I can’t take it,’ Kim fires back after Kris makes his feelings known in front of the instructor.
‘You can’t take it? I can’t take it… I felt uncomfortable when I came in. I nearly threw up,’ Kris replies.
Things get even more personal when Kris tells Kim he can no longer live with Kourtney, who had organised the naked yoga session.
He says: ‘Kourtney cannot live with us anymore. I will personally pay for her to have a room on a different floor.’
But in the end it is Kris who leaves, and heads to Minnesota, expressing concerns that his New York lifestyle is getting in the way of his training routine.
While Kim’s yoga practice was obviously more fitness-and-storyline-oriented than spiritually-based, I don’t see what the big deal is about naked yoga. If anything, it sounds like yet another one of the cheesy stunts that the Kardashians do in order to fill airtime on the show. Plus, it makes Kris look mean and controlling, which is clearly one of the Kardashians’ PR goals.
