The expectant, always-on-the-go reality star discusses why she prefers her bump-hugging outfits to be on the tighter side.

When Kim Kardashian walks into the room, all eyes turn to the pregnant reality star: at a lunch in honor of the April issue of DuJour magazine, for which she’s on the cover, she happily mingled with guests and posed for the cameras while wearing high heels and a bump-hugging Lanvin dress.
The event, held Tuesday at New York City restaurant The Darby, drew a slew of corporate types (and their starstruck tweens), as well as Letterman bandleader Paul Shaffer (sporting too-cool-for-school shades).
That morning, Kardashian — who’s making the media rounds this week on behalf of her supporting role in Tyler Perry‘s Temptation — landed on the front of another high-profile, but far more abrasive, publication: The brash and noisy New York Post, which featured an image of the 32-year-old sporting a nude-hued, full-skirted ensemble alongside the headline: “WHAT THE FROCK?”
But the glowy Kardashian, who’s expecting her first child with beau Kanye West in July, seemed unfazed by the negative press, telling The Hollywood Reporter: “I feel good and I feel like I’m in a really good place. I’m happy.”
“For maternity style, it’s so subjective. It’s just whatever makes you feel comfortable, whatever you really like,” she explained. “I still want to have my style … so I love the high-waisted skirts because they go right above the belly but they fit and still kind of show your shape. I think it’s really beautiful to show the shape of your belly when you’re pregnant. So I opt for things like that that are a little bit tighter instead of looser.
Because I think once it’s looser, it can tend to look a little frumpy or just add on extra weight that doesn’t have to be there — unless it’s done right. So I’ve been having fun experimenting with a bunch of stuff and getting things made — all my skirts have like this panel in the back. It’s been fun to figure it out.”
Kardashian, seemingly always on the go and in a different designer outfit (sometimes undergoing multiple wardrobe changes in one day), said she experienced no morning sickness in the early stages of her pregnancy.
“I think I’m past that point so I don’t think that’ll happen — but I have all my energy!” she mused, adding: “I do sleep a lot but I haven’t been tired yet. I just feel like it’s normal.”

Real Housewives of Atlanta Star Porsha Stewart Thanks Fans for “Prayers” in Wake of Her Divorce
by Alyssa Toomey
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart is thanking fans for their support in the wake of her divorce.
Yesterday, E! News confirmed the Bravo star’s husband Kordell Stewart filed for divorce from his wife of nearly two years, citing the pair’s “irretrievably broken” marriage as the reason for the dissolution of their union.
Although neither Porsha nor Kordell have specifically commented on the divorce filing, the 31-year-old reality star has taken to Twitter to post motivational messages and share her appreciate for the social media support.
“Thank you for your Prayers,” she captioned an inspirational Instagram, which says to “seek God in difficult moments.”
In addition to Porsha’s cryptic comments on her micro-blogging page, her rep offered insight into the couple’s split, insisting the reality star was blindsided by her husband and only learned of the divorce filing through the media:
“Mrs. Stewart is disappointed about her husband’s recent filing for divorce,” Porsha’s rep tells E! News. “Mrs. Stewart had held off on filing for a divorce herself and remained committed to the marriage because Mr. Stewart promised to work on the marriage with her. Instead, he misled her and she found out about the filing in the media. Mrs. Stewart hopes to resolve these personal issues privately with the support of her family, friends and strong faith.”
And she’s clearly finding strength through her faith, retweeting a post from a popular Texas pastor today.
“Your problems may be big, but our God is much bigger. Your obstacles may be high, but we serve the Most High God,” wrote Joel Osteen.
Finally, the Bravo beauty also posted a YouTube link to Gospel artist Marvin Saap‘s song “Never Would’ve Made It,” captioning the clip “God is in control. Faith.”
Best of luck during this difficult time, Porsha.
We wish you all the best.
