>>450 This and THIS. I think TS thought - in an undoubtedly condescending fashion - that she had the PR and the lawyers to best KK and KW. She probably thought she'd come out smelling of roses and candy floss, as she had so many times before.
But, unlike TH, Kim Is.Not.The.One. She held on to that tape and sat on it like a mother hen. She might have released it alongside the GQ article, but that wasn't the right time (TayTo and their "true, organic romance" was all anyone was talking about) and then she had other opportunities. But no, she waited until a boring Sunday night (on the west coast so it could catch prime social media time AND some morning editions the next day) when there was nothing else going on. It had a lead-in from her own show where the TS/KW beef was mentioned. Then she teased it on her popular twitter account before releasing it on her lesser followed (though NOT now) Snapchat account. It should be noted that Snapchat users tend to be 13-24 (prime TS demographic).
I've seen NATO operations with less calculated and precise planning. In fact, I don't think I've seen a NATO operation AS precisely planned. Or as effective and devastating. Sure, TayTay will come back (her teenaged fans are both gullible and deluded) but there's no denying KK landed some fierce punches to the gut and won this round.
And hell yeah she had her lawyers all over that shit. Girl is lawyered UP. Her father was a lawyer, you don't think she'd have some serious legal power on her side? KK wouldn't have planned all this (with her mother and PR people) without consulting a lawyer.
And I don't think she's done either, Anon. I think momma hen is sitting on some more eggs.
