Nixing the Nudie Pics

Kim Kardashian spread her 30th birthday out over two nights and two coasts and two Taos. That’s all well and good, but when she got to the New York City club Oct. 16, she said her recent naked turn in W magazine was going to be her last nude spread, as she’s too old for that now.

This is terrible. Did turning 30 stop Pamela Anderson from posing nude? Of course not. Then again, turning 40 didn’t stop Pam from posing nude either, so maybe Kim has a point. But still.

At the Oct. 15 half of the celebration at Tao inside the Venetian, Kardashian rolled in with her family in tow—Kourtney, Khloe, Rob and mother Kris Jenner—plus friends La La Vazquez, Brittny Gastineau, Jonathan Cheban, Kelly Rowland, Trina and the exact guy you want to have around when you talk about how your tata-flashing days are over, Girls Gone Wild head Joe Francis.

Toward the end of dinner, the Kim and her crew were joined by Perez Hilton and his mother, who was also celebrating her birthday. And also announced her retirement from posing nude.

Once they moved to the club, Trina took the mike and Kelly Rowland did “When Loves Takes Over.” Ben Lyons, who was also doing his birthday on Oct. 16 at Lavo, was in the mix. His status as a nude model remains undetermined.

For the Gotham portion of the celebration, Kardashian was joined by Ciara, Adrian Grenier, Missy Elliot, Lil’ Jon and a number of the Real Housewives from hither and yon.
