Our Long National Nightmare Is Over: Kim Kardashian Returns to Social Media

After three months of somehow restraining herself from posting any duck-face selfies or butt close-ups, Kim Kardashian is back on social media.

Whether you love her or hate her, you should probably prepare yourself to see a whole lot more of her jiggly bits in your Instagram feed.

The “famous for being famous” Mrs. Kanye West not only posted a family portrait on Instagram Tuesday, but she also released a montage of home videos on her website. Highlights from the two-and-a-half-minute clip include baby Saint spewing vomit and big sister North rushing to clean it up with some paper towels, and Kim and Kanye apparently eating dinner off of a TV tray.

Um, stars… they’re just like us?

Kardashian ended 2016 out of the spotlight, dropping off social media in early October after being tied up and robbed at gunpoint in a Paris hotel. Then, husband Kanye was hospitalized in November, either because he was suffering from exhaustion and overwork or just having a total mental breakdown — depending on who you believe. The two were also plagued by divorce rumors, and, of course, the inherent drama of being members of the attention-addicted Kardashian-Jenner clan.

I don’t often feel bad for people who have millions of fans and more money than God, but I couldn’t help but feel a bit sorry for the Wests for their epically bad end of the year. Plus, I can totally sympathize with having a shitty 2016, as I do not live under a rock.

From mass shootings and terror attacks to celebrity deaths and the election of Lord Voldemort Donald Trump to the White House, it seems like pretty much everyone is looking for a fresh start in 2017. Kim Kardashian may simply be doing the same— let’s just hope one of her New Year’s resolutions is to avoid once again becoming overexposed.
