Kourtney Kardashian TV Birth Staged? : Critics Find Clues to Fake Scene
SIGN UP TO RECEIVE THE LATEST NEWS FROM FASHION&STYLE
The Kardashian family is known for their outrageous publicity stunts, from weddings, to paternity mysteries, to even 72-day marriages. Whether the issues are real or fake, the family makes sure E! cameras are there to film all of it. The latest Kardashian under fraud speculation is the eldest sibling, Kourtney.
On last week's season finale episode of "Keeping up with the Kardashians," Kourtney gave birth to her second child, a baby girl named Penelope Scotland Disick. The video of the birth, which featured the mother pulling out her baby with her own hands, sparked viewer outrage. Many believed the moment was way too sacred and special to be filmed and shown to millions via TV. And a small few found the scene to be beautiful and touching. However, both sides may unite against a shocking realization - a staged birth.
Was this birth staged? It's the question many are now wondering since the birth video went viral Monday morning. It's not just die-hard Kardashian fans who are watching the birth video now, it's everyone. Critics are pointing out undeniable facts that could prove that the birth scene was staged or rather reenacted.
Crucial details of a normal birth are missing from this scene. See list below:
-Blood: Viewers pointed out that baby Penelope came out the womb weirdly clean. If you dare, watch a childbirth video; newborns aren't so clean fresh out the womb. In vaginal births, there is a significant amount of blood present.
- Birthing struggle: This point is very subjective, as women have different birthing experiences and pain levels. However, for the sake of reporting all the striking points viewers pointed out, this detail was the second most questioned part of the scene. Kourtney seemed to have the easiest birth ever. If it weren't for the lack of blood and her family's history of staging events, this detail may have not mattered much.
-Face Down Delivery: Kourtney's baby was delivered face-up. Babies are usually delivered face-down; the position makes for easier delivery. According to BabyZone "a face-up or occipital posterior is a more difficult delivery because the baby can't flex the head on exit. It's like delivering a baby that weights a full pound more. It's not impossible, but it's more difficult to effectively push, and the pushing stage of labor can last longer than usual." Unless Kardashian had her makeup crew on hand (along with the other 6 guests in the delivery room - which is highly unusual), she sure looked calm and great for a mom going through long labor.

Giving the Kardashians the benefit of the doubt, here are some reasons why the family probably chose to reenact the birth.
- Privacy: Perhaps they actually wanted to have a real sacred moment. It is hard to believe due to their nature however, childbearing is a momentous experience. The reenactment was most likely done for the sake of the fans.
- Visual Purposes: What made the scene so beautiful to viewers was the lack of graphic content - no blood or fluids make for a more "tasteful" or appealing scene.
A staged scene would not be the first for the entertaining family. In an episode of "Kourtney and Kim Take New York", Kourtney's sister, Kim and "momager" Kris Jenner take a trip to Dubai. During the trip the mother and daughter have a very emotional scene where Kim confesses she is unhappy with her husband Humphries. Kim filed for divorce on October 31, 2011. However there is proof that the "emotional" scene was filmed December 6th in LA; photos of a Jenner and Kim with a wardrobe crew holding the clothes for the scene leaked on the internet (view them here). Also, Kim recently took a trip to Hawaii with her beau Kanye West and uploaded a series of old and forgotten beach pictures onto her Twitter in an attempt to pass them off as new.
Between alleged publicity stunt weddings and now a perhaps staged childbirth, can fans really trust the Kardashians?
