During a recent episode of The Kardashians, the two eldest Kardashians sisters, Kourtney and Kim, were discussing co-parenting with their ex-husbands and the challenges of overcoming being hurt by their children preferring to stay at the residence of their fathers versus theirs. During the sisterly chat, Kim revealed that her oldest daughter, North West, revealed she prefers to spend time with her dad because he “has it all figured out.”
“She’ll be like, ‘Dad is the best,’” Kim K. said. “‘He has it all figured out. He doesn’t have a nanny, he doesn’t have a chef, he doesn’t have security. He lives in an apartment.’ And she’ll start crying, ‘Why don’t you have an apartment? I can’t believe we don’t have an apartment.’”
Following the revelation, Kourtney empathized with the situation, sharing that her three children with ex, Scott Disick feel the same.
“They do that at Scott’s too,” Kourtney Kardashian said. “‘Dad has the best house, your house sucks. He has the best house. It’s not super big, the vibe is better.’ I feel like everything falls on the parent that’s more involved.’”
Clearly feeling upset, the SKIMS founder quipped that the children felt more independent due to “making ramen noodles” while under the care of Yeezy.
“They make their own food. That is amazing that you make Ramen,” Kim K said, to which Kourtney added, “You boil water and pour it onto some noodles.”
Later in the show during the confessional, Kim shared that Kourtney believes that 10-year-old North is the reality star’s “lesson” in her life. “I’m supposed to learn even more about patience—she teaches me patience. She has taught me a lot about life,” she shared.
Kim also shares seven-year-old Saint, five-year-old Chicago, and four-year-old Psalm with her ex-husband Ye; their divorce was finalized in November 2022, almost two years after she filed to end their 6-year marriage. Following the dissolution, Kardashian faced backlash in May after seemingly calling herself a single mother, stating that she has “no one there to help” during a podcast interview with Jay Shetty. Addressing the controversy, Kardashian said:
“I think I’m still learning how to be a single parent. Obviously, having nannies and a chef to help cook is beyond helpful. It’s all about family and enjoying these moments. It takes a village to raise kids, but at the end of the day, your kids only want you. The struggles that my kids go through really have nothing to do with the amount of help that I have.”

In the newest episode of The Kardashians that aired on Thursday (Nov. 2), Kim Kardashian tells her sister Kourtney Kardashian that her oldest child with the rapper prefers hanging out at his home. “She’ll be like, ‘Dad is the best,’” she said. “‘He has it all figured out. He doesn’t have a nanny, he doesn’t have a chef, he doesn’t have security. He lives in an apartment.’ And she’ll start crying, ‘Why don’t you have an apartment? I can’t believe we don’t have an apartment.’”
Kourtney could empathize with the situation, as she said her three children with ex Scott Disick feel the same. “They do that at Scott’s too,” the Poosh founder said. “‘Dad has the best house, your house sucks. He has the best house. It’s not super big, the vibe is better.’ I feel like everything falls on the parent that’s more involved.’”

In a later confessional, Kim shared that Kourtney believes that 10-year-old North is the Skims founder’s “lesson” in her life. “I’m supposed to learn even more about patience—she teaches me patience. She has taught me a lot about life,” she shared.
Kim also shares seven-year-old Saint, five-year-old Chicago and four-year-old Psalm with her ex-husband Ye. Kardashian filed for divorce from West in February 2021 after six years of marriage. Both sides initially said that the split would be amicable, but the relationship between the two superstars has turned increasingly tense in the two years since, especially amid Kardashian’s former romance with comedian Pete Davidson in 2022.
Gilmore Girls is a beloved show that continues to attract new viewers and serve as a comforting escape from reality.
Lane Kim is a complex and interesting character who is forced to hide her true self from her strict and religious mother.
Lane’s relationship with her mother is strained and she faces challenges in pursuing her interests and finding love, ultimately settling for a life that feels lacking.
From its quick-witted dialogue to endless pop culture references, there’s no question that Gilmore Girlsis one of the shows that has impacted many people throughout the years. Despite being released two decades ago, the show continues to welcome new watchers, joining the fanbase that is still very much alive and active. For a lot of people, it is considered their comfort show — a perfect thing to watch whenever you want to take a breather from reality and whenever you want to feel like a part of a tight-knit town that looks as if it is always autumn.
Gilmore Girls follows the colorful lives of Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel), a mother-daughter duo. Lorelai is an independent and smart woman who runs an inn while taking care of her daughter Rory, a young girl who’s very academically driven. Throughout the seven seasons, we see them navigate life the best they can, may it be about relationships, careers, and everything in between. But besides these two characters, we also get to see other people which makes the show feel more complete. There’s Luke Danes (Scott Patterson), Paris Geller (Liza Weil), Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop), Sookie St. James (Melissa McCarthy), Jess Mariano (Milo Ventimiglia), as well as Lane Kim (Keiko Agena), among many others. All of them hold a lot of significance to the show in their own ways, and their stories are all worth knowing. But for now, let’s talk about the life of Lane Kim and why her development deserves so much better than what was given to her.
Lorelai (Lauren Graham, Evan Almighty), 32 years old, has always done things her way. Raised in a world of money and cotillions, she was wilder than the other girls. Pregnant at age 16, she chose her own path, and, in true style, walked with flawless posture right out the door. With fire and determination, Lorelai has worked her way up from maid to manager at the historic Independence Inn, all while keeping sight of her dream to open her own inn with best friend Sookie (Melissa McCarthy, Samantha Who?), the hotel’s hopelessly clumsy culinary genius. Lorelai’s 16-year-old daughter, straight-A student Rory tries to prove herself at the exclusive Chilton Preparatory School, a daunting new world of girls with attitudes and boys with shiny cars. But when Rory meets Dean, the attraction hits her like a ton of bricks and single mom Lorelai begins to notice in Rory her own dreams and rebellious youth.
Who Is Lane Kim on ‘Gilmore Girls’?
Lane Kim has been Rory’s best friend since they were in kindergarten. They grew up together in the quaint and beautiful town called Stars Hollow in Connecticut, and they have been inseparable ever since. She is this spirited, charming girl who lives a secret life. Living in a pretty strict and religious Korean household, she is not allowed to indulge in things that are perceived as evil by her mother Mrs. Kim (Emily Kuroda). This proves to be a challenge for Lane because her interests incredibly contrast with her upbringing.
Much like any other beloved character on Gilmore Girls, Lane is part of a big community where everyone looks out for one another. Whenever she is not in school, she helps her mother out in their business selling antique furniture. Other than that, she would attend church and Bible studies and accompany her mother around town. She is not allowed to do much else, even going out with Rory is limited and has conditions. Lane essentially is living a life as per her mother’s wishes. But for her, life is about listening to good rock music and playing the drums — things that may or may not give Mrs. Kim a heart attack. So, for years, Lane has had to hide her “secret” life from her mother, confident she will be misunderstood. Lane has gone through pretty impressive ways to keep who she is under wraps, such as having a secret compartment under her bedroom floor where she hides her CDs and other rock-related merchandise. Safe to say that she’s one of the most interesting characters here.
Besides her secret, she is also known for being an incredibly loyal and kind person. Lane has always been there for Rory through her ups and downs, helping her friend out to the best of her abilities. Moreover, whenever Rory isn’t around, Lane is there to lend a hand to the people of Stars Hollow. She is just that bright person who enjoys being with others and pursuing what she loves.
Lane Has a Very Complicated Relationship With Her Mother on ‘Gilmore Girls’
From the get-go, the mother-daughter dynamic between Lane and Mrs. Kim isn’t that great, as they have contrasting personalities. Lane is often a happy-go-lucky dreamer while Mrs. Kim is a serious, practical thinker. At first, Lane would always follow what her mother says and asks. She would be told to go straight back home from school to study. Besides that, Mrs. Kim would control her schedule and clothing, and demand Lane to tell her where she is at all times. It is a rather painful and relatable thing for many people, especially those living in a pretty similar household.
However, from another perspective, Mrs. Kim’s parenting style can somewhat be understandable. Some people might see her as someone who is strict yet ultimately means well. While it makes sense, this specific method is the very thing that made Lane’s life pretty sheltered and miserable, since she is not able to express who she is without being judged. It made Lane scared to open up to her mother. So, no matter how much Mrs. Kim justifies her actions, they don’t seem to have a positive effect on Lane. For instance, in Season 4, Mrs. Kim discovers her daughter’s secret life when she sees the things Lane’s been hiding in her room. Lane offers a compromise, but Mrs. Kim doesn’t want to hear any of it. By the end, Mrs. Kim tells Lane to move out. This move was harsh, especially since Lane is still very young.
Lane, having no choice but to hide her interests from her mother, is just one of the many reasons she deserves better. Her being asked to leave the house because she’s a drummer in a rock band is incredibly cruel, especially because Lane was just a teenager back then. Lane’s interests are more than common; it’s probably what most of us have gone through (many of us certainly had a rock or goth phase). After that, Lane finds herself crashing in Rory’s dorm at Yale, and, eventually, at the Gilmore house — all of this because she likes rock music. It’s unfair. While it doesn’t sound that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things, it is a big deal for Lane. How she’s treated by her mother throughout the years is pretty sad to witness, and it ultimately causes some trauma on Lane’s end. But this story is welcome in the show because many viewers have shared their similar stories and how seeing it on-screen helped them reflect on certain things in their own lives.
On a positive note, by the later seasons, we see Lane learning how to stand up for herself and their relationship surprisingly starts to slowly be repaired. But it’s bittersweet because no matter how much it has improved, it still feels lacking.
Who Are Lane’s Love Interests on ‘Gilmore Girls’?
We know all about Rory’s rather rollercoaster of relationships, but Lane’s love life is also fun to follow. There’s Henry, a guy she met at a party with Rory, but they didn’t last long. Next is Dave (Adam Brody), who’s probably everyone’s favorite match for her. He’s a sweet, shy guy who also happens to be Lane’s bandmate. In fear of being found by Mrs. Kim, Lane and Dave keep their relationship a secret. But along the way, Dave impresses Mrs. Kim by reading the Bible in one night (which, for a lot of viewers, was also very alluring and endearing). The young couple, however, eventually breaks up due to the long distance when Dave goes away for his studies.
Then, there’s Zack (Todd Lowe), one of her other bandmates. These two weren’t too close, but when Dave is out of the picture, we see more interaction between them. Eventually, Lane realizes that she has feelings for Zack, and they end up dating. For some, this relationship doesn’t top the one with Dave, but it still has a certain charm to it. Whatever it may be, Lane is happy because her life is starting to fall into place. For one, she’s independent of her mother. And two, she’s doing what she’s been dreaming of her whole life. It’s amazing to see her pursuing her passion. The band even went on a tour — with the help of Mrs. Kim, surprisingly — and performed on different stages. It’s the life she’s always wanted to have. All of it is going great. Lane is doing great. But then, they somehow erased all of that progress when she married Zack and got pregnant.
Now, the situation is not bad in itself; Zack is actually a pretty decent guy. One of the main themes being tackled in Gilmore Girls is change, how things won’t always go your way. But the thing about Lane’s situation is that she absolutely doesn’t deserve to be the character that goes through this major change just as she’s finally out of her shell and doing what she loves. All she has ever wanted was to get out of Stars Hollow and be a rock star. It would’ve been so satisfying to witness that growth to its full extent because we’ve been following her journey since the beginning, but that didn’t happen.
What Is Lane’s Life Like Now?
While seeing Lane rocking out on stadiums is a missed opportunity, her journey — much like the Gilmores — is grounded and realistic. By the end of the show, we see Lane still married to Zack and taking care of their twins Steve and Kwan. It’s not the life that she envisioned for herself when she was a teenager, but she made it work. In A Year in the Life, the twins are grown up and Lane and Zack are still living in Stars Hollow, and that’s about it. She doesn’t look miserable, but you can’t help but think of how all of it could have played out if they just let Lane pursue her dream because it’s sad to see her lose that fiery autonomy after years of fighting to have it. You can’t help but want to let the creators of Gilmore Girls know that sometimes, it is alright to not make all the characters have a realistic and somehow monotonous ending because Lane deserved so much better.
Gilmore Girls is available to stream on Netflix in the U.S.
The conversation arose after The Kardashians star shared her love of the iconic ‘90s girl group on an episode of the reality series, and recalled wishing that she was a part of the line-up, alongside Halliwell (Ginger), Emma Bunton (Baby), Victoria Beckham (Posh), Mel B (Scary) and Mel C (Sporty).
Responding to the praise from the television personality and SKIMS founder, Halliwell has sent the admiration straight back and revealed what Spice name she would give Kardashian.
“I think she’s Smart Spice,” she added. “She’s smart. It’s brilliant that you’re beautiful from the outside, but also she’s beautiful with a book in her back pocket. I love that. We can be all things. Good for her!”
She continued, explaining how she admires Kardashian for her strong work ethic and her ability to encourage women globally to be more accepting of their body types.
“She’s amazing,” she told the outlet. “I think she’s a very, very good role model. She’s smart. She’s really been inspiring the way she’s turned that business around and also for women to celebrate your curves. I really like that about her.”
Kim Kardashian has been vocal about her love of Spice Girls in the past, and recently revealed in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that she dressed up as one of the members for a “talent show” as a kid – “I was Victoria. I was Posh, duh”.
She also said that she dressed up as the group in the past with her sisters, and Mel C even invited her to fill in for Beckham if they were to go back on tour.
“Sporty Spice wrote a book and signed it inside and she sent it to me saying that they’re going on tour and they need a Posh and would I be the Posh?” she said. “I mean, I’m sure she was joking. But like, when I was in high school, would I ever have thought that this was, like, a thing? I’m just, like, a girl from high school that loved the Spice Girls and now they’re asking me?”
Kim Plath’s new boyfriend, Ken Palmer, recently revealed that his divorce was finalized shortly before he started dating Kim. This may come as a surprise to viewers of Welcome To Plathville.
Ken’s previous marriage to his ex-wife Bobbi only lasted for one year before they filed for divorce, citing that their relationship was “irrevocably broken.”
Kim and her ex-husband Barry Plath separated in June 2022 after being married for almost 25 years. While they have not legally divorced yet, Kim is ready to move forward with her new relationship with Ken.
Welcome To Plathvilleseason 5 introduced Kim Plath’s new boyfriend, Ken Palmer, who recently released some news about his divorce. Kim’s marriage to her ex-husband Barry Plath ended in late 2022, after Kim decided she was ready to move on from her relationship. Though she and Barry had been married for over 2 decades and share 9 children together, Kim was feeling stuck in her relationship and wanted to look at herself from outside her marriage. Though many Welcome To Plathville season 5 viewers were hoping to see a new Kim in the current season of the series, the Kim who returned to the show hadn’t changed much.
Kim’s relationship with Ken was quick to debut on Welcome To Plathville, as Kim expressed interest in beginning to date quickly after the season began airing. Though many were curious to see how Kim would fair being independent, she wasn’t interested in being on her own for long. Instead, Kim met Ken and quickly jumped into a relationship that’s been unfolding in the most recent episodes of Welcome To Plathville season 5. While we know some things about Ken, there’s recently been shocking new information released about his divorce, which could be surprising to some Welcome To Plathville viewers.
Ken Palmer Finalized The Divorce Process Right Before Dating Kim Plath
While Ken seems to be all in when it comes to his relationship with Kim, his divorce is much more recent than many would expect. Ken’s spoken about his divorce as though it was far in his past, when in reality, he finalized his divorce not long before he met Kim. According to The Sun, Ken was married to his ex-wife Bobbi from 2018 to 2019, and their divorce was only finalized in 2020. Kim, meanwhile, announced her separation from Barry in 2022, meeting Ken just a few months after. While Kim and Barry still have to legally divorce, their separation has been public and Kim’s ready to move forward.
Ken Palmer Was Married For Just One Year
While Ken’s marriage to Bobbi didn’t last, it’s interesting to note that the relationship itself wasn’t a long one. 57-year-old Ken originally married Bobbi just a year prior to their petition for divorce was filed. Though there are few details on the divorce itself, the reason given was fairly standard, as Ken and Bobbi filed the claim that their relationship was “irrevocably broken” in court. An aviation specialist, Ken is a flight instructor who’s located in Florida. While Kim has been based in Georgia throughout her adult life, she’s reportedly relocated to Florida to be with her new man.
Kim Separated From Barry In June 2022
Kim and Barry’s marriage has been documented throughout Welcome To Plathville’s run, and viewers have seen the damage Kim and Barry have done to one another through the years. From Barry’s overly controlling nature to Kim’s need for everything to be perfect, the couple have had their issues for a long time. After nearly 25 years together, Kim and Barry chose to separate in 2022, sharing that they would continue to love and respect one another despite their separation. The Welcome To Plathville stars have yet to approach a legal divorce.
Kim Zolciak’s recent plastic surgery procedure raises eyebrows given her ongoing divorce and IRS troubles.
Zolciak’s decision to undergo elective surgery and publicly share it seems like an attempt to divert attention from her marital and financial issues.
Despite their divorce proceedings, her estranged husband, Kroy Biermann, accompanied her to her surgery, adding another layer of complexity to their already tumultuous relationship.
Kim Zolciak has been making headlines non-stop recently. She is currently going through a bitter divorce, as well as her mounting financial crisis, which includes a massive debt to the IRS. Despite such, Kim found time to get some plastic surgery done. Featured on Dr. David Matlock’s Instagram video, the mother of six shared that she was getting a vaginal rejuvenation done as well as getting her skin tightened. “Obviously, I’ve had six children. I had them all naturally, so when I’m running or even when I sneeze, I do pee a little bit, which bothers me greatly,” she said in the video. It’s unclear if she paid for the procedure, or if she received it for free one exchange for promo. All of this comes with the news that Kim and her estranged husband, Kroy Biermann, owe upwards of $1 million to the IRS in unpaid taxes.
The timing of Zolciak’s surgery and publicly posting about it coincides with Kim’s continuous tone-deaf behavior. This move though seems to be another moment to divert the headlines away from her marriage and money troubles, even though many are wondering how she is having elective surgery while knee-deep in marital strife and debt.
Kroy Biermann Supported Kim Zolciak in Surgery Despite Divorce and Debt
Kim and Kroy’s divorce has been a rollercoaster. Kroy filed, reconciled briefly, and filed again. He’s accused Kim of being careless in her spending habits and the cause of their debts. He also says she’s unfit and has requested full physical and legal custody of their four minor children. Kim recently responded to the divorce with a petition of her own, asking for joint custody, spousal, and child support. Kroy also wants financial assistance. The estranged couple continue living in their marital mansion, which has been on the auction block at least three times in the past two years, and they recently put it up for sale. Still, Kroy accompanied Kim to her surgery procedure.
“Kroy came with her to help her out. It’s a big surgery,” a source told Us Weekly. “They’re going through a divorce, talk badly about each other, then travel together.” In the same US Weekly piece, the source notes that they do have a “bizarre” bond with each other in spite of the multiple leaked 9-1-1 calls they’ve done on one another amid their divorce.
Kanye West and his public moves of late have been a curious mix of teasing music along with being seen traipsing around the world. By way of Ian Connor, Kanye West, also known as Ye, delivered a message to Elon Musk regarding his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.
Fashion influencer and stylist Ian Connor shared an Instagram post on October 18 which shows a text conversation between him and Kanye West.
The messages began with Connor writing, “My word, All praise be to Allah” with a screenshotted text presumably from West to Elon Musk.
That message read, “When are we going to speak. You owe me nothing. You never have to speak to me again. But if we do speak. The nature of the relationship has to change.”
Ye added, “I’m not bipolar. I have signs of autism from my car accident. You can’t watch Kim keep my kids from me and not say anything publicly and then call yourself my friend so I can bring my audience to your struggling platform.”
At one point, Ye and Musk seemed to be fast friends with the X and Tesla honcho endorsing the Chicago producer and designer’s 2020 presidential bid. However, Ye’s targeted messages against the Jewish community led to him being banned from the X, formerly Twitter, platform.
New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Award-winning singer-songwriter Kim McLean, who recently released a book of devotions and an album of songs written with Country Music Hall of Fame member Loretta Lynn, will be the featured guest at the Country Music Hall of Fame And Museum’s popular Songwriter Sessions on Saturday, October 21, 2023 at noon.
Kim will perform and tell stories behind some of the songs from A Song & A Prayer and others she’s written for artists like Tim McGraw, Trisha Yearwood, and Lee Ann Womack.
The A Song & A Prayer book includes daily devotions Kim wrote with Loretta. She composed nine of the 10 cuts on the album with the Queen of Country Music and was the solo writer on “Angel In The Stone.” She also produced the album. Both the book and the album will be offered for purchase at the event, and Kim will be available for autographs and photos.
The two like-minded ladies first met in 2018 at a writer’s night in Nashville. Loretta invited Kim, who is also an ordained minister, to her house not to write initially, but to pray. They bonded over music, God, songs and songwriting. Over the next two years, their conversations turned into songs which later transformed into devotionals and the A Song & A Prayer book.
