Kim Kardashian out and about in NYC

Stone faced socialite Kim Kardashian waded through a sea of paparazzi as she left Kanye West's apartment home in NYC on Tuesday. Every photo agency in the city has a photographer camped outside Kanye's home. I hear the paparazzi work in shifts so they don't miss a single shot of Kim or Kanye leaving the building. The going rate for a non-exclusive photo of Kim and Kanye together is about $50.00. A photo of Kim by herself is worth $20. Multiply those rates by all the blogs, magazines, newspapers and TV shows that buy the photos and you can see why the paparazzi are jockeying for position outside Kanye's home.
