Kim Kardashian in Body Hugging Leather Dress

Kim Kardashian was rocking a body-hugging leather dress topped with a biker jacket while in Manhattan on Tuesday.

The reality star made the rounds at ABC Studios, appeared first on 'Good Morning America' and then arriving at 'Live with Kelly & Michael,' for a conversation with guest host Kristin Chenoweth.

During her 'GMA' sit down with Lara Spencer, Kim talked about the backlash she has received for her decision to stay clear of maternity wear.  She said, "Kourtney warned me that when you become pregnant, there's this whole new group of people who will criticize you for whatever you do."

Kim acknowledged that she's trying to stay clear of spike heels because of the public outcry but may go back. "Flat shoes actually hurt my back.  My theory is happy mommy, happy baby, so whatever makes me feel good, I wanna wear.  So I'm trying the flats, but we'll see."

Close pal Simon Huck spent some time hanging out with KK during her stay in the Big Apple.  She tweeted, "My @simonhuck I couldn't survive NYC without you!"

Earlier this month it was announced that Huck bought out Jonathan Cheban's share of Command PR, an entertainment agency that they owned jointly.

Cheban is widely known as Kim's closest friend.  According to Page Six, Jonathan plans to open a new sushi restaurant in Miami, but will provide consulting to Huck as needed.
