Kim Kardashian doesn't pull any punches on social media. On any given day, she's showing us the ins and outs of her elaborate beauty routine (contouring, waist training, et al) or, when push comes to shove, taking rumors to task like she did yesterday.

Just hours before we joined her at the Hype Energy USA launch event in downtown Nashville—only she could pull off nude latex in the land of honkytonk—she took to Twitter for what many are hailing a peculiar rant, but we're treasuring as refreshingly honest and tongue-in-cheek entertainment. Yes, Kim Kardashian is funny, you guys.

"My sisters make fun of me saying that I'm a lot feistier when I'm pregnant," Kardashian told us when we asked if she'll keep the #JustPregnantKeeks hashtag humming. "I can't wait for my website to launch because I'm going to do a video stream every time I hear some stupid rumor that people treat like it's fact."

But what got Keeks riled up in the first place? Suffice it to say, it's been quite the news week for the Kardashian-Jenner clan. A quick summary, in case, by some inexplicable force of nature, you're not keeping up: Kim just announced that she's pregnant with her second child and the world has finally become acquainted with her stepmom Caitlyn Jenner, who truly is as beautiful as she is brave. Not to mention, has amassed a social media following that's officially set a world record.

Within four hours of joining, Jenner gained a million followers, beating out Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, and even Kardashian's husband Kanye West, whose Twitter debut follower counts pale in comparison.

Given that Jenner is a newly-minted Twitter user, and currently has over 2 million users hanging on her every last tweet, you'd think Kardashian, a veritable social media maven that's encountered her fair share of haters, might be of some guidance. But according to her, Caitlyn's got this.

She just wanted to start Twitter to be honest and have her voice heard.

"She'll figure it out on her own," she explained. "She just wanted to start Twitter to be honest and have her voice heard." As for what happens when the trolling naysayers rear their ugly heads, it's just a matter of turning a blind eye. "Everybody has them, you just have to ignore it!" she added.

But if there's one realm that Kardashian has every intention of helping Caitlyn out, it's beauty—so long as she doesn't steal her glam squad, of course. And if the idea of having Kardashian as your tutor gives you major FOMO, fear not. She'll be producing and sharing how-tos for all her signature looks on her new website, which launches this summer.

"I love to work with people and be creative," she told us. "There's going to be a lot of original photoshoots because I love doing beauty tutorials. I've been doing them almost every day so that people can see every kind of treatment that I do. They're hair and makeup tutorials—just like, my version. It'll be how I talk on social media, but my own platform."

Having gone so far as attending Kardashian's makeup school ourselves, bated breath doesn't even begin to cover it...
