Get Ready To Relive The Vienna Ball Disaster

by Kristie Rohwedder

Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians will feature a real-life event that wasn’t fun or funny or campy by any stretch of the imagination. It was a moment that made headlines months ago due to its sheer disgustingness: Back in Feb., Kim Kardashian attended the Vienna Opera Ball with Richard Lugner (who reportedly said not-so-nice things about his date), and while she was mingling, Austrian reporter Chris Stephan approached her in blackface. And that's not all: Stephan said he was Kardashian’s husband-to-be Kanye West. It’s been a few months, and the story still makes my stomach churn.

And it looks like this will be a big part of the upcoming episode the E! reality show.

What I hope we find out Sunday night: not only how the hell that guy got that close to Kardashian (I assume her bodyguards are always standing out of the frame), BUT WHY THE HELL WAS THAT GUY LET INTO THE VIENNA OPERA BALL WHILE WEARING FUCKING BLACKFACE? HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?!?!?! WHO LET THAT HAPPEN?!?!

Stephan told Radar Online he wasn't trying to be racist, apologized, and said that Karadashian's date was the person who set it up. He said Lugner asked him to to pretend to be West because Kardashian missed her beau. Wait, WHAT? I... I'm dumbfounded.

How and why the fuck did any of this happen.
