Kim Kardashian Reemerges at Star-Studded Holiday Party in Los Angeles, First Public Appearance Since Kanye’s Hospitalization

Spreading a little holiday cheer! Kim Kardashian reemerged at a star-studded holiday party in Los Angeles on Wednesday, December 14, her first public appearance since her husband Kanye West’s hospitalization at the end of November.

In images shared by family friend and interior designer Margaret Weitzman, Kardashian, 36, can be seen smiling close-lipped next to several excited guests at the bash, which was held at the Forum.

In another image that Weitzman shared, the designer smiles for a selfie with Kris Jenner, who looks glam with a high coiffure and a Christmas lights necklace.

The photo marks the first time that the Selfish author has been spotted at a public event since West, 39, was hospitalized for extreme exhaustion last month. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star also pseudo-reemerged on social media with a NSFW post to Instagram on that same day.

Though her own account remains frozen in time following her scary Paris robbery in October, Kardashian’s team gave a shout-out to her fans with a new Kimoji Instagram account that teased new Kimoji merchandise set to drop on Friday, December 16.

In a series of posts featuring the same video and photo, a butt covered in a pair of black high-waisted briefs with the word savage emblazoned on the elastic twerks in front of a Christmas tree. Another set of recurring posts features a woman’s cleavage spilling out of a white bra as she leans forward against another woman’s derriere wearing a red pair of the “savage” underwear.

Meanwhile, Kardashian’s husband has been making headlines after paying a visit to President-elect Donald Trump’s gilded Trump Tower, where the pair chatted in a private sit-down and posed for photos.

The 70-year-old real estate mogul even gifted West with his autograph, which the “Fade” rapper tweeted to fans: “To Kanye, You are a great friend. Thanks, Donald Trump.”
