Keeping Up with the Kardashians: One Kim in a Wig
Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kim Kardashian showed off her new blonde locks over the weekend, much to the surprise of her fans.  While she's best known for her trademark dark hair, she couldn't help but take pride in the lighter shade she's decided on.

On Sunday, she quickly boasted of her excitement on her Twitter account.  "I WENT BLONDE!!!! Do u like it?"

Following that, she posted pictures of herself and her new hairdo.  One more blonde pic!" she wrote, and continued with: "I'm LOVING my blonde hair!"  It seems as though the joke's on her fans, because Kim was actually out to fool them.

On Monday, the reality TV star explained on her official blog that her blonde 'do was just for a photo shoot she participated in.  Still, it didn't hurt her looks one bit.

"It's a wig!  Did I have you fooled?" she wrote.  "I did a fabulous photo shoot this weekend for Scott Barnes book called About Face.  Chuckie Amos did the hair and transformed me with this blonde wig and they put this hair piece on!  I haven't taken it off since, because I'm really loving the look."

There's no doubt about that.  Kim Kardashian is simply flaunting her locks all around the city.  "I've been wearing it around New York and everyone thought it was my real hair!  It's making me want to dye my hair and maybe go lighter for the summer."  She even asked her readers if it's a good idea, and the response seems fairly positive.

Perhaps the contestants of her upcoming "Queen of the Kims" would like to try imitating the dyed Kim Kardashian hair as well.  This Wednesday, the star's lookalike competition will be launched on the Tyra Banks Show.

"[I]t's a lookalike contest in which "real girls" go head to head with drag queens and then you guys get to pick the winner!!" Kim wrote.  Don't forget to catch her appearance on the talk show tomorrow, and find out how you can take part in "Queen of the Kims."
