Kanye West Debuts as Kim Kardashian Latest Himbo (watch!) 1Kanye West made his debut on Kim Kardashian’s reality show in a mutual display of ego-stroking. Talk about a relationship made in marketing heaven.

Kanye, 35, looked like he was walking into a fantasy world on the other side of the looking glass when he peeked into Kim’s hotel room to mark his appearance on the show.

He’s now an official member in Kim’s freak show. How long will it take before she starts manipulating him to create drama for the show like the hapless Scott Disick is anyone’s guess. But sooner or later he’ll fall into line with the rest of the Himbos, Lamar Odom and Bruce Jenner.

But for now the honeymoon is on. Although Kim said she wanted to keep much of her relationship off-camera, Kanye was a highlight of the show. There was ample footage of Kim driving West’s fancy Lamborghini and wearing her KW earrings.

Kim also couldn’t resist taking yet another dig at estranged husband Kris Humphries. The scene involved Kanye’s “Theraflu” remix. Kanye disses Humphries in the song and threatens his spot on his basketball team. Brother Rob Kardashian set it up by ask his sister about it.

“Yeah I’ve heard it so, what? Just because I’m seen with someone, does it automatically mean that he’s my boyfriend?” she says, before the relationship was off the ground. ‘I don’t want to make a big fuss about it – we’re just hanging out,’ says Kim low-keying the relationship.

“I think Kim wants to believe that she can take things slow,’ says Khloé Kardashian. “But let’s keep it real — you’re wearing K.W. earrings, I know what that stands for.”

Despite all the protestations from momager Kris Jenner and sisters about taking the relationship slow, just the opposite is going down. Kim is going all out to make it happen with the rapper.

A relationship with the mega-rapper not only has helped rehabilitate her tarnished image, but ramped up her reality show. Rest assured, Kanye will be around for as long as he remembers it’s all about Kim.
