It hasn't been a good week for those closest to Kim Kardashian, that's for sure. Not only has her mother Kris Jenner's talk show trial run been universally panned, her beau Kanye West is scuffling with paps at the airport. Good times!
First up, New York Post columnist Linda Stassi is claiming that Kris has been trying to bribe her for better reviews after writing that the pimp momager has as much business helming a talk show as her "talentless daughter had for hosting a talent show." Ouch.
According to Radar, Linda claims her "first bribe" arrived on Thursday in the form of a dozen gourmet cupcakes and a sterling silver Tiffany pen worth $325. Hey Kris! Although I haven't seen it, I'll happily write a sweet little review of your show for the right price!

In the note attached to the pricey offering, Kris joked that maybe Linda could use the pen to create a "better review next time."
While Linda makes it clear that she can't accept gifts in exchange for a favorable review, she took to her column to poke more fun at the obnoxious matriarch. She addresses Kris: “I cannot be bought – for a pen. A pen and pencil set, maybe – but just a pen? To improve your rating, Mrs. Kardashian-Jenner, either you somehow become interesting, which given the data seems as likely as the pope turning Jewish, or you do better with the bribes.”
Perhaps Kris should buy stock in the cupcake company as a different reviewer described the show as "unwatchable" while another called it "horrible, boring, [and] self-involved." The ratings seem to reflect this general consensus as well.
If you think that's bad for Kris, wait until you hear about Kanye's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day (Alexander has nothing on the poor tiny rapper!) that happened last week.
People is reporting that the tiny rapper got into a an altercation with pap videographer Daniel Ramos as Kanye left Los Angeles International Airport on Friday. Before lunging at the camera man, the new dad can be heard telling Ramos, "You're trying to get me in trouble so I have to pay you, like, $250,000." Well, Kanye likely gave the poor guy his wish!
A source tells the site, "Kanye hates when the paparazzi speaks to him. He got very annoyed with the videographer and lost it."
A spokesperson for the LAPD revealed that the paramedics were called, and Ramos was taken to the hospital. She released a statement reading, "A police report was taken by the Los Angeles Police Department and the investigation is ongoing."
Another officers explains, "We can confirm that our detectives are handling the case, however, we're not sure if a misdemeanor or felony charge will be filed. The charge will determine if it goes to the City Attorney or D.A.'s office."
You'd think that Ramos would have learned his lesson by not…it was his SUV that received the wrath of a bald Britney Spears' umbrella back in the day…
