Celeb reps shocked Kim Kardashian made Variety's Power Women List.

Lifting spirits: The mother-of-one visited Children's Hospital Los Angeles with Kendall Jenner
Raising awareness: Kardashian has returned back from a trip to Armenia, where she attended a memorial commemorating the victims of the Armenian genocide 100 years ago

Kim Kardashian will be recognised by Variety's Power Of Women: New York luncheon for her work supporting the Children's Hospital Los Angeles. 
The 34-year-old will be among those named as an Inspiration Impact Honoree at the publication's April 24 event, which will pay tribute to some of the industry's most charitable women, according to Page Six.
The hospital is no doubt near and dear to Kim's heart, who has paid visits to the medical centre with her sister Kendall Jenner and husband Kanye West in the past.

While Kim courted controversy in 2014 when it was revealed she donated 10 per cent of profits from her semi-regular eBay clothing auctions to charity, she used the moment to reveal what motivated her giving in her blog.
The star said that her late father, Robert Kardashian, 'always taught me the importance of giving back' and it's a lesson she has kept with her all these years, whether the public is aware of her charitable deeds or not.
'I don’t publicize everything I do to help charities and people all over the world,' she insists. 'I do it because I want to. I do because my dad taught me to. I do it because it’s the right thing to do.'
Recently, Kim and her husband were recently named by Time as among the 100 Most Influential People in the world.

Read PageSix report on the nomination:
The five acclaimed honorees at Variety’s ­upcoming “Power of Women: New York” have among them Oscars, Tonys, Emmys, Golden Globes, BAFTAs, a Grammy — and one sex tape.
Eyebrows were raised when reality star Kim Kardashian was added to a lineup of “Inspiration Impact honorees” led by Glenn Close, Rachel Weisz, Lena Dunham and Whoopi Goldberg.
Some of the honorees’ reps were shocked that, after confirming their cultivated clients for the event to “recognize the extraordinary achievements and leadership of women in entertainment,” they learned their stars would share the stage with Kardashian, whose recent achievements include “breaking the Internet” with her nude Paper magazine cover, dying her hair platinum, and having her uterus “cleaned” on TV.
“Everyone had their own version of, ‘Huh ?’ ” said one insider after Kardashian was added to the roster “at the 11th hour.” “None of the honorees knew about Kim” when they agreed to accept the award, the source said, and “every single person had a hard time with it. No one knew about Kim until very recently, and everyone thought, ‘This isn’t what I signed up for. The company we keep is important.’ ”
Another source close to one honoree explained: “People were surprised Kim was selected, considering the event is for a ‘New York power issue.’ Kim’s not a New Yorker.”
Kim and husband Kanye West own a New York pad, and were seen shopping for real estate with reality-TV cameras in tow last year.
But a different source insisted that it was only one star’s representative who had any issue with Kardashian’s involvement, and that their client had no problem with the choice. And Goldberg’s rep told us, “Whoopi has no issues with Kim ­being involved with the event.”
But despite any behind-the-scenes drama, a source pointed out all the stars will be in attendance, and “at the end of the day all their charities are getting money — they’re showing up for a good cause.” A Variety rep didn’t comment.

Whoopi Goldberg's rep told Page Six that the actress has 'no issues with Kim being involved with the event'
