Kim Kardashian Wears Bra and Thong in Latest Instagram Photo

Kim Kardashian was so excited to hit 27 million followers on Instagram that she shared a new photo with all of those followers. She forgot to get dressed when she did, however. Thus the photo features the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and wife of Kanye West wearing only a bra and a thong in the shot.

In other big news for Kim Kardashian, she and her sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian–along with mom Kris Jenner–learned on Thursday that E! will be paying the gang $100 million for four more years of their reality show.

The Hollywood Reporter says that number isn’t accurate, however. They report instead that the new sum isn’t that much, and is for a 3-year extension instead.

Either way, Kim Kardashian and sisters, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are making big bucks. Still it’s the number of followers on Instagram that caused Kim to pose in her bra and thong.

“27 mil!!!!! Thank you so much!!!! I love you all!!!!!” she captioned the shot.

On Thursday night, Kim Kardashian likely had a melt down over the dress she chose to wear to a party for Madonna. When she arrived she soon realized that Rita Ora was wearing a dress in the same fabric and hue.

What, you didn’t wear your pink latex dress last night? @KimKardashian and @RitaOra sure did http://t.co/MCHwkABNti pic.twitter.com/LRdgMremDs

Oh, what a world these Kardashians live in, where fashion and followers dictate one’s happiness.

Which do you suppose made the biggest headline splash for Kim Kardashian this week? Was it the money she makes on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, her number of Instagram followers, or her woe at wearing a dress similar to that of Rita Ora?

Don’t you wish your problems were as serious as those suffered by Kim Kardashian?
