Another summer of Kardashian is upon us, but not the kind most fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians are used to. While most previous summer news cycles have been dominated by the Kardashian-Jenner’s sisters, the summer of 2016 is all about Rob Kardashian and his new fiancé, Blac Chyna.
Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have been media darlings since they started dating in January. Despite a minor spat between Rob Kardashian and his famous sisters, all signs suggest that Blac Chyna is settling easy into her new role within the Kardashian clan. Blac Chyna’s integration into the Kardashian-Jenner clan seems to have been helped by Kylie Jenner’s recent split with rapper Tyga.
To kick off their foray into the family business, lovebirds Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have even begun accepting joint appearance bookings. The couple kicked off their first appearance on Saturday, May 28 at the Tropicana Sky Beach Club. Though the travel arrangements might have some Kardashian-Jenner family haters wondering if Blac Chyna is taking her role as a future Kardashian woman too seriously.
According to TMZ, the contract that Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna signed for their appearance at the Tropicana’s Sky Beach Club contained a very interesting rider. The rider demanded two round-trip plane tickets. While one of the requested plane tickets had to be in first class the other requested ticket had to be a coach ticket. Reportedly, Blac Chyna took the first class ticket.
To be fair to Blac Chyna, she is caring the only child that will bear the last name Kardashian and she has been a fixture in the club hosting circuit, unlike the notoriously reclusive Rob Kardashian. But Rob Kardashian and the Kardashian-Jenner family might owe Blac Chyna a lot before the dust is settled.
According to People, sources close to the family credit Blac Chyna’s relationship with Rob Kardashian for repairing the fractured relationship between him and the rest of the famous family.
“Anyone who makes her son this happy is family now. Kris has really rallied the family and told them to cut anything negative out – Rob is happy and that is all that matters. And they listened to her.”
Even Khloé Kardashian, whose relationship with Rob fractured in January when she returned home early from a book signing tour to find him and Blac Chyna cozy in her home, has warmed up to the idea of a relationship between Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian. Khloé Kardashian is devoted to her nieces and nephews, so it’s easy to understand how Blac Chyna’s pregnancy may have softened her heart.
“He used to be in a shell and would ignore everyone’s texts and calls, he was a recluse. Now he is hitting everyone up in the family all the time. He sent them all pictures of the sonogram…”
The only component missing from Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s fairy tale romance is an equally fairytale wedding. But don’t expect the summer of Kardashian to end with a fairytale wedding. According to Entertainment Tonight, neither Blac Chyna nor Rob Kardashian are in any rush to walk down the aisle, no matter how lavish the ceremony may be.
In an interview, Blac Chyna noted that she and fiancé, Kardashian, are taking things slow. Sources close to the couple say that Rob Kardashian likes to make big gestures. Reportedly, Rob Kardashian’s proposal to Blac Chyna was a big gesture, so it stands to reason that the two might want to take some time to plan a suitably big wedding.
More than likely, Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian’s wedding will be the highlight of the reality television season. The only question is on whose show will the event ultimately air?
