“I think our family is definitely really relatable. I mean we know that we definitely show a side that’s not as relatable, but I think it’s the balance of being in between, of seeing us come up and doing that with us and sharing those experiences with us.I think it’s because [fans] can sense our authenticity with one another.”

Kim’s sentiment about motherhood has been echoed by her half-sister Kylie Jenner, who gave birth to her daughter Stormi Webster on February 1.

Lupita Nyong’o’s stolen sh13m Oscar dress found

The handmade, pearl-covered Oscar dress stolen from actress Lupita Nyong’o was recovered Friday at the very Hollywood hotel where it was stolen — and the thief claims it’s worthless, according to reports.
Cops discovered what they believe is the missing gown, valued at north of sh13m, in a bathroom of the London West Hollywood hotel after a tipster called gossip site TMZ claiming to be the thief, the site reported.

The dress-snatcher returned the gown claiming it was a knockoff and wanted the world to know, “Hollywood’s fake bull—-,” TMZ reported.

The anonymous caller, who reached out to TMZ around 2:30 p.m. Friday, claimed they noticed the door to Nyong’o’s room was ajar and grabbed the dress, created from 6,000 white pearls.

But the robber and a pair of friends took two of the pearls to the garment district in downtown L.A. and were told the gems were fake.

TMZ contacted the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department after the call and detectives found the dress stuffed into a garbage bag in a bathroom next to the hotel’s fitness center.

Industry insiders countered the bandit’s claims — scoffing at the $150,000 price tag and putting its true value exponentially higher. Such dresses are typically worn once and then put on display in the designer’s archives, the insiders said.
