(Kim said diplomatically that she believed the uninvited guest—Stevie Wonder—“wanted to stop by to say hi to John [Legend] and Chrissy.”)\n Inside, the house is serene and church-like in its soft echoes, though the walls are adorned with nightmarish paintings by George Condo, the artist who made Kanye's album art.

I wanted to know about Caitlyn Jenner—or, more specifically, how the family prepped (as a cast) to reveal her stepfather's gender transition to the world.\n When Kim was 21, she told me, “I walked in on Bruce” wearing women's clothing in the family garage, “and I went over to Kourtney's, and Kourtney was the only person that I told. So we went and Googled stories and found this, like, episode of this girl who had gone through a transition.
“Not that one,” she murmurs liltingly, as if singing a song about not that one.
“Not that one, not that one.”\n Next it's time to review a video for the app, in which she and a group of girlfriends (including her sisters) played a game of Fuck, Marry, Kill using combos of various celebrities.
Her curves remained the same, but under Kanye's exuberant insistence, they transmuted from porny to arty.
Her provocative selfies were no longer just attention-seeking; now they were also body positive.\n At the time of her wedding to Kanye, Kim had already given birth to the couple's first child—a feat he touted in his remix of Beyoncé's 2013 single “Drunk in Love”: The rest of his verse is largely a testament to all the different ways and places he and Kim have sex, and a tribute to the furniture they have ruined while doing so.\n This is the other element of Kim's new appeal: Marriage and motherhood didn't diminish her eroticism, but combined, they made it more palatable. (It's difficult to slut-shame a 30-something mother of two when the man nuzzling her neck in photos is her husband.) It was as if, by fulfilling societal expectations of marriage and motherhood, Kim finally earned the right to take off all her clothes.

(Also, Chyna had reportedly taken steps to trademark the name “Angela Renee Kardashian,” which would insinuate her not only into the family but also into the lucrative family enterprise.)\n The family's collective response to this news remained largely inscrutable—it took several days for word to bleed out that Kylie and Tyga had split weeks earlier—possibly because they wanted to preserve the reveal of their emotions for episode three of their TV show (“Significant Others and Significant Brothers”), filmed months before, in which they begin to make peace with Rob and Chyna's relationship.\n Whatever the family's prior feelings about the sudden engagement of its most reclusive member—the only Y chromosome in an avalanche of X's; the only one capable of carrying on the family name—the message when we meet is clear: Family Chyna now.\n“We're all on board,” Kim declares. I think people want to feel like we're all beefing and have this crazy fight, and we're really not.“I'm doing an interview, and I just want to know what I do to drive you crazy. She disagrees with him about what outfits she should wear. While Kanye tried to think of something on the other end of the line, Kim smothered a cracker with butter and popped it into her mouth.

Together these apps generate revenue projected to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars—money that dwarfs Kim's E!Recently, her neighbor Gordon Ramsay swung by and helped her play a prank on her chef.(They told him he was fired.) Another neighbor crashed the private baby shower she hosted for her friend, the supermodel Chrissy Teigen.This process is known as “approvals”; it is slightly more difficult than choosing an appetizer off a lunch menu and considerably less difficult than harnessing the neutron source californium-252 to minesweep a tract of land, yet Kim does it with the precision of someone engaged in either task.\n Kim begins flipping through a binder of photos, choosing ones to include in the approximately 14 billion collages (Kim loves collages) on her app, covering every page in a rash of approval hieroglyphs.
