Kim Kardashian denies living the high life while on charity mission
Kim Kardashian has decided to give her account of a visit she and 'momager' Kris Jenner made to Haiti earlier this month.
The 31-year-old headed to the Caribbean country, which was hit by a devastating earthquake in 2010, to learn more about the charity We Advance, which is in part 'a movement to advance the health, safety, and well being of women throughout Haiti.'

The reality star has been accused of trying to rehabilitate her tattered image at the expense of others, and some reports of her time in Haiti have her attending a fashion show and hiding away at spas.
Today, she slammed these rumours on her Celebuzz blog.

But when Kim returned home, she says she saw 'malicious' reports that say she 'spent a fortune' on herself in Haiti.

'The truth is that I was at the Haitian Artisan Fair, where the amazing men and women who make their jewellery and crafts sell them to visitors to make a living, and I bought some beautiful jewelry!'
'I have some really great stories and photos from my trip and I'm so excited to share them with you all,' she added.
And Kim kept to her word almost immediately by blogging about the Leanna Archer Foundation, which was founded by a young girl who pioneered a small business selling her own hair products.
While in Haiti, Kim and Kris, spent time looking around the nation's capital Port-au-Prince and visited orphanages with charity Sow A Seed.
Sow a Seed, a registered non-profit, volunteer-based organization, works with struggling orphanages in Haiti, assisting them with food, shelter, education and healthcare.

The Kardashians have come under fire recently from some of Hollywood's elite because of their TV shows and growing media empire.
Mario Bello The Coyote Ugly star co-founded We Advance, an organisation set up in 2010 in response to the devastating earthquake in the country.
Maria and Kim went to visit and celebrate women the charity works with and the reality star told fans the experience was ‘incredible’ and posted a picture to her blog showing herself and Maria, her mother Kris and Patricia Arquette, who was also in the party.
Kim and Maria also wrote a blog post for The Huffington post about their experience and explained what they were doing.
