‘They know their biggest asset is looking gorgeous and shutting up,’ columnist Rob Shuter tells MTV News.

They’ve been uncharacteristically tight-lipped about their rumored romance, but they are just about the only ones. It seems all anyone can talk about is the blossoming relationship between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who have already been anointed with their very own celebrity couple name: Kimye.
The two were spotted all over New York City this weekend, getting dinner with the rest of the Kardashian clan at Spice Market, enjoying another meal thrown by luxury brand Audemars Piguet at Catch in the city’s Meatpacking District and hitting the opening of Scott Disick’s new Japanese restaurant Ryu.
Despite all the hand-holding and dinner parties, both Kim and Kanye have kept quiet regarding their relationship, which isn’t surprising to Naughty But Nice celebrity columnist and TV host Rob Shuter, who believes they are well aware of how they are handling their big reveal as a couple.
“Kim and Kanye are so smart. They realize a picture is worth a thousand words. If they actually speak, we might be less interested in these two,” Shuter told MTV News. “They know their biggest asset is looking gorgeous and shutting up.”
Maggie Coughlan from Gilt City agreed, adding that their behavior in public tells the whole story.
“I think the fact that they’ve been parading their love all over New York City is a statement enough,” she said, “and they’re so high profile, it’s very tongue-in-cheek, like, ‘Hey, we can go out, we can hold hands, we can make appearances together, we don’t need to say anything, we’re that famous.’ ”
Celebuzz editor Amber James thinks there might be a little more to it, opining that Kim K. may be taking things a little slower this time around to avoid repeating the missteps that led to her down the aisle too quickly, resulting in her brief and controversial marriage to basketball star Kris Humphries.
“She doesn’t want to make any missteps this time around,” James said.
