Why did Kim Kardashian meet with Gypsy Rose?

In the brief clip, the SKIMS co-founder knocks on a door and is greeted by the newly released Gypsy Rose Blanchard. Gypsy, clad in a white lace long-sleeve shirt and black skirt, greets the billionaire with an eager "Hi!" before they share a hug.

Gypsy posted the clip on her TikTok account, writing in the caption, "Surprise! This was such an honor to talk about prison reform with Kim K. She is a lovely person."

The encounter is undeniably unexpected (our jaws dropped, no kidding), given that neither Kim nor Gypsy has revealed they have met in person. However, the prisoner-turned-social media sensation has openly expressed her desire to work with Kim on prison reform.

In January 2024, Gypse chatted with Extra and opened up about her No. 1 goal since her release from prison: Teaming up with Kim Kardashian.

"It would be cool because she has also a huge platform for prison reform, and I have been in prison!" she explained. "So, I think having those two elements to each other, I think we could probably do some good in the world!"

That same month, sources close to Gypsy told TMZ about her eagerness to seek advice from Kim regarding navigating public life. They also noted that Gypsy was looking to Kim for guidance in managing her large social media following and using her platform to make meaningful changes in prison reform.

At the time, neither Gypsy nor the SKKN BY KIM founder had initiated contact regarding a potential meeting. Nevertheless, circumstances clearly shifted, as they're now set to meet in person in Season 5 of The Kardashians.

Having said all of that, we'll need to tune in to uncover the real reason behind Kim's iconic meeting with Gypsy on The Kardashians. However, it's highly likely they come together to talk about prison reform. On the other hand, some viewers suggest the show is struggling to produce compelling content, resorting to exploiting "whoever is viral at the moment for relevancy."
