The Kardashians Are Over Their Fav Bakery — Is It Because of Beignets?
Today, Kim Kardashian delivered what might be the most shocking news to rock the Kardashian universe since the whole Blac Chyna and Rob saga.
Her family is looking for a new bakery.

Can you believe it?
In the words of one very upset Twitter user, “WHAT DID HANSENS DO?!”

For those of you who don’t follow every mundane detail of the Kardashians’s lives, Hansen’s is the bakery the famous family has been going to since forever ago. They were there when Kim got married for the second time, when Kylie turned 18, when Khloé married Lamar and when Kourtney was pregnant with either her first, second or third child.

In short, they’re practically a member of the family.
We think that after a full year of dropping hints, Hansen’s is still not down to start making beignets, and their refusal to compromise is something the the Kardashian family just cannot accept.
See, the Kardashians love beignets like Kanye West loves ice cream.
Or at least Kim Kardashian does.
During her pregnancy with Saint, Kim fell under the spell of the powdered-sugar covered doughy delights.
She ate them when she visited New Orleans at Cafe Du Monde, which is so famous that even my conservative middle-aged father has not only heard of the bakery, but made a point to visit it when he went to New Orleans for a train convention last year.
Only instead of going once like my father, Kim was visiting Cafe du Monde three times a day, or at least that’s what Kris Jenner told the world on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

“You’re eating beignets three times a day,” Kris scolded, adding that the problem didn’t end when Kim came home because, “I was in the kitchen this morning – you had your chef making the beignets because you brought home the beignet mix.”
Subsequently, Kim posted a video where she complained about the amount of weight she had gained during her pregnancy, saying, “Ugh, these fat hands, my ring doesn’t even fit. I am so tired, you guys, I don’t know what’s wrong with me.”
Obviously, since Kim has been on the Atkins diet since Saint was born, she hasn’t been indulging in her favorite desert, but now that she’s back to her pre-baby weight, we’re guessing she’s ready to start making it a cheat day treat.
If we had to guess, seeing as Hansen’s is basically a member of the Kardashian family, we’d say that Kim probably felt so betrayed by the bakery’s refusal to make anything but cakes, even for her, that she couldn’t help but take out her rage in a passive aggressive way on social media.
Although seeing how often Kim and her family members make up on their show, maybe it won’t be long before Kim and Hansen’s kiss, make up and get back to the way things were.
Obviously this is just a theory, but we’re standing by it.
