Is there a Middleton-Kardashian feud brewing?
Probably not, but the celebrity gossip rumor mill is swirling after Kim's overtures toward meeting the Duchess in the UK and Kate allegedly giving her the Heisman.
Here's how it went down, supposedly: Kim is "obsessed" with Kate and "desperately wanted to hang out" while she was launching her new Kollection.
This much is true. In early November, Kim said she wanted to get together with Kate in London: "I’d call her up and ask her to lunch. She's amazing."
This got back to Kate, according to an insider:
"Kate can’t stand their style, and from what she knows about their TV show, it’s just a bunch of trashy people primping and yelling at each other," the source dished.
Certainly hard to argue that point.
"She’s far too polite to diss Kim to her face, but she’s got enough on her plate without having tea with the Kardashians or someone like them.”
In short ... trash by association.
“The royal family is very careful. The Duchess gets free clothes sent to her every day of the week, and she always sends them back," the palace mole goes on.
"She doesn't want to appear she is endorsing any product. It’s not proper. Quite apart from that, the Kardashian outfits just aren’t appropriate for a duchess."
Another indisputable point: “Kate is hardly going to turn up for an event with the queen in a cheap leopard-print miniskirt or gold sequined jacket!”
Can you imagine if they did get together?
We will probably never, ever know.
