Speaking of upcoming shows, E!'s "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" returns on May 20, which means the Kardashian clan is doing the media circuit to preview the season. And what's another season of the hit reality show without another hotly-
scrutinized-anticipated Kim romance? Viewers clearly wouldn't know what to do with themselves after watching the lightning-speed rollercoaster courtship-marriage-split with NBA player Kris Humphries. So ... this brings us to Kanye West. Yes, Kim and Kanye are a new duo, and Kim is now talking about her latest relationship and her reality show, telling "The Insider":
"I mean it's definitely intense. I think that after falling in love in my last relationship, and being so open and sharing myself so much and then when it didn't work out for me, following my heart, but then that might not have been what the media wanted for me. I think being on that other end of that criticism -- getting all that scrutiny -- I think I would be a fool to really share so much of my new relationship."
So will Kanye show up on "Keeping Up"? But of course, dolls!
