It's been said that in life only two things are certain–death and taxes.  Well, dear readers, I'd like to think y'all would agree with me if I tweaked that saying just a bit.  In the reality world, the only two things that are certain have to be Kris Jenner creating rumors about her family in order to stay relevant and Kim Kardashian talking when she should just smile, look plastic pretty, and wear heinous tiny rapper inspired outfits.  Am I right or am I right?  Of course death, taxes, and all that jazz come into play as well…although have we seen any Kardashian 1099s?

Where to start, where to start?  Should I lead with Kim's unfortunate but likely well-intended Twitter posts or Kris speaking out about the gossip she planted about her marriage?  It's quite the conundrum.  Thank goodness I've got a glass of pinot noir and a Ducky Dynasty marathon to soothe my Kardashian-riddled nerves.  Join me, won't you?


With no babies, weddings, or controversial teen modeling scandals on the horizon, no one was shocked to hear from Kris "sources" that Bruce Jenner was consulting with divorce attorneys to get out from under the thumb of his controlling and emasculating wife.  To be honest, it's a brilliant rumor because, for once, it's totally believable.  In fact, I'd venture a guess that most people hoped it was true.  Kudos to you Kris for blurring the line between an allegation people are dying to get on board with and a solid story for your show.  Let it be known, I never doubted the momager's cutthroat business savvy. 

After rampant speculation that Bruce had finally grown a pair was ready to throw in the towel regarding his marriage, Kris is talking to anyone who will listen to dispel her the rumors.  Speaking to Access Hollywood, Kris scoffs at the idea that her twenty-one-year-old union is in jeopardy.  She says, “[Divorce rumors happen] probably once a week for the last few years. It kind of goes with the territory. It’s a shame that, you know, certain stuff is just completely fabricated, but that’s definitely completely fabricated.”  It very well could be, but don't doubt for a second it won't be featured on Keeping up with the Kardashians!

Khole Kardashian Odom laughs about the scuttlebutt surrounding her mom and step-dad, joking, “I just found out there’s a rumor that my parents are getting a divorce. I miss everything when I’m here [working on X Factor]. God!”

Meanwhile, poor Kim (and I hate even typing that), was trying her best to share love and kindness to the Twitterverse and ended up on wrong end of death threats and international backlash.  Writing about the awful discord in Gaza, Kim tweeted, "Praying for everyone in Israel" followed by "and praying for everyone in Palastine and across the world!"  Bless her heart.  I think that only .099% of what Kim does is genuine, but I believe her tweets were well meaning.  That said (and I'm embarrassed to share this), I barely know what's going on in my neighborhood, much less in the rest of the world (it's just too depressing), and I think that Kim was just trying to convey sincere feelings.  Yes, maybe she should have been more knowledgeable about world issues, but I don't think she meant any malice.  Feel free to rail me if you see fit.

Amid MAJOR uproar, Kim deleted both tweets.  I can't say I blame her.  Death threats are no laughing matter, and I have deleted plenty of things of the Internet in my day.   Facebook should have a breathalyzer.  Ignorant or not, in my opinion Kim was just trying to spread wishes of peace.  Perhaps she should stick to butt implants and $5000 shoes, but I don't doubt her intentions for a second.  Sidebar…you will never read those words typed by me again!

TMZ has obtained Kim's statement in regard to her tweets, and again, I think she's sincere.  WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?  Has my love for Jase Robertson on Duck Dynasty made me soft?  She apologizes for any offense people may have taken, explaining, "I want to own up to and explain that earlier today I sent out two tweets about saying prayers for the people in Palestine and Israel and after hearing from my followers, I decided to take down the tweets because I realized that some people were offended and hurt by what I said, and for that I apologize. I should have pointed out my intentions behind these tweets when I posted them. The fact is that regardless of religion and political beliefs, there are countless innocent people involved who didnt choose this, and I pray for all of them and also for a resolution. I also pray for all the other people around the world who are caught in similar crossfires."

Kim, your publicist(s) are well spoken and good at their jobs.  Give them a raise.  And, don't worry, another quickie wedding and everyone will forget this debacle ever happened!
