Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's public displays of affection on 'Keeping up with the Kardashians' is merely for ratings, according to body language expert Dr Lillian Glass. Kanye made his debut on the E! reality show last month, though Dr Glass says it looks fake and forced.
Speaking to Hollywood Life.com, she claimed Kim and Kanye are just pals saying, "They are friends. The romance is contrived no matter how hard they try. They side shoulder to shoulder. They are not intertwined as lovers would be". Continuing her analysis of a recent episode of the show, Dr Glass added, "There is too much casualness between them. Kim is doing what she has to do for the show but her monotone voice and expression says what is really going on". Kanye made his debut on the show by showing up with Kim to Scott Disick's restaurant opening in New York City, but Dr Glass suggests the rapper looked "tense", saying, "Kanye looks like a deer in the headlights. All intimidated by the Kardashian clan. His smile is tense and forced and he looks stiff around everyone. Not his usual cocky arrogant body language. He looks a lot meeker".
Kim is still in the initial stages of her divorce from Kris Humphries, whom she married in 2011 before splitting just 72 days later. She began dating Kanye in early 2012, after he referenced his love for her in one of his new tracks.
