Taylor Swift can breathe a sign of relief, since her onetime nemesis and VMAs acceptance speech bomber Kanye West has reportedly pulled out of attending the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards at the last minute. The reason? His lady love Kim Kardashian can’t accompany him.

Really, Yeezy? You can’t go solo?

Kardashian can’t make the VMAs as she has a prior engagement at Fashion’s Night Out in NYC, promoting her latest fragrance True Reflection. So rather than go alone, ‘Ye pulled out. A source told The Daily Mail, “Kim’s in New York for her fragrance launch and Kanye didn’t want to go to the VMAs if she couldn’t be there.”

‘Ye was not scheduled to perform, so it’s not like his decision to bail is effing up the run of show. It’s like going to result in a seating arrangement snafu and perhaps a joke courtesy of host Kevin Hart.

And like we said, T. Swift can rest assured that he won’t ambush her onstage like he did in 2009, prompting President Obama to call him a “jackass.”

Yeezy attended the Met Gala a la carte earlier this year since Vogue’s Anna Wintour refuses to extend an invite to Kardashian, since it’s a truly A-list affair and she doens’t consider Kardashian on the level.

Do you think ‘Ye is whipped for not being able to go the VMAs without Kimmy by his side? Stage 5 Clinger!

Trend Alert: Celebrity Cleavage Takes Center Stage (GALLERY)

Was there a memo that went around on Thursday night calling for cleavage-baring frocks? From New York City to Venice, Hollywood’s leading ladies were dressed in sexy styles that highlighted their décolletage.

Kim Kardashian, 31, made a show-stopping entrance at Du Jour magazine’s launch party on Wednesday night in New York City. Though the curvy star typically chooses styles that flaunt her derriere, last night, Kardashian showed off her other assets in a curve-hugging number with a cut-out neckline.

Also in Gotham City, Fashion Star host Nicole Richie, 31, sported a similar style to Kardashian for last night’s 9th Annual Style Awards.

Rocking an extremely short Anthony Vaccarello black mini dress, Richie went all-out sexy, showing some major skin in a plunging cut-out neckline and sky-high heels.

What other stars dared to bare?

Pretty Little LiarsAshley Benson flaunted her curves in a strapless sweetheart gown at the premiere of her new flick Spring Breakers at the Venice International Film Festival.

Benson, 22, looked sophisticated in her royal blue gown, but she wasn’t the only young starlet to enter the Venice cleavage competition. Her co-stars Vanessa Hudgens, 23, and Selena Gomez, 20, also chose revealing necklines for the premiere.

Hudgens sparkled in a very low v-neck Alberta Ferretti gown alongside Gomez, who put her bust on display in a strapless custom-made Versace Atelier gown.

And rounding out the cleavage parade was diva Mariah Carey, who flaunted her assets while kicking off the NFL season in a short black halter dress.

Kim Kardashian is never afraid to show some skin.

And the reality star proved as much when she stepped out — with her cleavage leading the way — in a cut-out, color-blocked cocktail dress in New York City Wednesday night.

With her dark tresses pulled back in a taut ponytail, Kardashian let her legendary curves take center stage as she hit the town for Du Jour magazine’s launch party.

Was her fashion-critiquing beau Kanye West there to applaud her daring dress?

West was nowhere in sight, with Kardashian instead stepping out on the arm of her longtime best friend Jonathan Cheban.

The well-dressed duo joined the hosts of the bash, Jason Binn, Christy Turlington Burns and Bruce Weber, to fete the mag at NYC’s Capitale. Mingling with fellow partygoers Russell Simons, Daisy Fuentes and Rachel Roy, Kardashian magically avoid a wardrobe malfunction in her risque getup.

And while she’s skipping the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles, Kardashian’s social schedule will send her to Charlotte, N.C., on Thursday, where she will join celebrity clan at the Democratic National Convention.

“So excited for tomorrow!” the E! reality star tweeted. “Fashion’s Night Out and then the Official DNC after party at Club Hugh in Charlotte, NC! Gonna be a fun night #spon”

Kim Kardashian Talks Kanye West and Wanting Kids on ‘The View’ (VIDEO)

It’s clear that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are in love. So, it’s not much of a surprise that when the reality star was on The View Wednesday and told Barbara Walters and company that she thinks he’s her perfect match.

A smiling Kardashian, 31, continued to say, “Anything I’d be in now would be a permanent relationship.”

So could there be some “Kimye” kids in the near future?

“At the space that I am in life now, kids are definitely something I want. I think I wanted that before. I think I fell in love so quickly and wanted that to be my life so badly but I just didn’t take the time to find someone.”

Though the superstar pair has only been dating for six months, she says having known each other for a decade, “I feel like we’ve been through a lot together as friends. He’s always been the most supportive person in my life.”  So much so that she recently gifted the rapper with a Lamborghini.

Walters definitely put the hard press on Kardashian to discuss whether or not they would settle down soon and asked her what she has learned from her divorce from basketball player Kris Humphries.

Kardashian, who is technically “still married,” says she has grown a lot.

“I care more about the simple things. You really figure out what’s important in life. I value time more; staying at home, doing nothing, cooking in. I’m not all about the glitz and glam of a relationship.”

So does she have any regrets?

“As crazy as it might sound, I really don’t have a lot of regrets. […] I mean I am such a different person today, anyone who would be with me today or anyone in my past would have probably wanted the person who I am today from all my experiences I’ve learned. “
