Kim Kardashian Stars In Sex And The City 2 Redux

This morning, we thought the photos of Kim Kardashian trying on burqas in Dubai was in the gray area between quirky and offensive. But then that’s kind of a redundant thing to say about reality stars, isn’t it? And now that we’ve seen photos of Kim and her mother, Kris Jenner, riding camels while the cameras roll on their adventures, we finally get it. They were supposedly in the United Arab Emirates to help open a branch of Millions of Milkshakes (um, hello, why don’t we have this amazing thing in NEW YORK yet?). But we think that’s all a cover. They were really in the area to shoot a very special remake of Sex and the City 2.

OK, if next Kris and Kim show up in one of these getups, their secret is out.

Amazing Man Made Islands in Dubai

The Palm Islands are an artificial archipelago in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on which major commercial and residential infrastructures will be constructed. They are being constructed by Nakheel Properties, a property developer in the United Arab Emirates, who hired Belgian and Dutch dredging and marine contractor Jan De Nul and Van Oord, some of the world’s specialists in land reclamation. The islands are the Palm Jumeirah, the Palm Jebel Ali and the Palm Deira. Each settlement will be in the shape of a palm tree, topped with a crescent, and will have a large number of residential, leisure and entertainment centers. The Palm Islands are located off the coast of The United Arab Emirates in the Persian Gulf and will add 520 kilometres of beaches to the city of Dubai. The first two islands will comprise approximately 100 million cubic meters of rock and sand. Palm Deira will be composed of approximately 1 billion cubic meters of rock and sand. All materials will be quarried in the UAE. Among the three islands there will be over 100 luxury hotels, exclusive residential beach side villas and apartments, marinas, water theme parks, restaurants, shopping malls, sports facilities and health spas. The creation of the Palm Jumeirah began in June 2001. Shortly after, the Palm Jebel Ali was announced and reclamation work began. The Palm Deira, which is planned to have a surface area of 46.35 square kilometres, was announced for development in October 2004. Construction was originally planned to take 10–15 years, but that was before the impact of the global credit crunch hit Dubai.
