Following the recent celebration of his 1 year anniversary with wife Khloe Kardashian (yes, they’ve been married an entire year), Lamar Odom is now taking things a step further by hiring his mother-in-law to be his manager.
“Kris Jenner now manages Lamar Odom. He has asked her to manage him off the court a few months ago,” confirms Lamar’s rep Eve Sarkisyan to TMZ.
“Their first project together would be his and Khloe’s fragrance which is set to launch next year.” Kris will also be responsible for handling Lamar’s paid appearances, setting up endorsement deals, and any other personal marketing activities.
TELL US – MIXING BUSINESS WITH FAMILY, A GOOD OR BAD IDEA?
The Real Housewives of Atlanta discusses her relationship with castmates Kim Zolciak and Nene Leakes, dating NFL player Willis McGahee (who is rumored to have 7 kids by multiple women), and why she almost didn’t return to the show this season.
“To be honest with you, I didn’t know if I was coming back,” she says. “I was like, ‘Eh, I don’t know.'” Kandi, who has an album coming out on Dec. 14, ultimately decided to return for business reasons. “It’s both good and bad being on this show. I’m glad to be part of a successful series, of course, but there are other things that [the cast] can’t talk about on our end that we feel should be better,” says Kandi, likely referring to not earning enough money from the show.
Excerpts from Kandi’s interview below -
TVGuide.com: I have to know. Did you work on Kim’s new song, “Google Me“?
Burruss: No, actually a friend of mine did.
TVGuide.com: Ah, good. Because “Tardy for the Party” was better.
Burruss: Yeah [laughs]. I did do a new song for Kim called “The Ring Didn’t Mean A Thing.” You’ll see it this season. Kim and I also went on a promo tour, which was a little crazy. She performs live. It was small, just three cities, and I kind of took her like an opening act. We did a tour bus and everything. It was … interesting.
TVGuide.com: And how is your relationship with NeNe these days?
Burruss: We’re cool. We don’t have any beef this year. What happened last year was really … I don’t even know how it happened. It didn’t even make sense. It was a moment that went too far. At a certain point when we were promoting the season, it did start to get out of control. We started having arguments over the radio over stupid stuff, and the network had to reach out and say, “You guys need to calm down.” After that, we both kind of checked ourselves. Now we have no issues.
TVGuide.com: You begin dating National Football League running back Willis McGahee this season. What was that like with the cameras following you?
Burruss: Honestly, I would never do that again. He’s a cool guy, but I think when you put it out there in public too soon, before you even have a chance to really get to know each other, I think it gives too many people the opportunity to make an opinion. And they do it before you get to make your own opinion!… Right now, we’re friends. That’s all I can say.
TVGuide.com: Tell me about your upcoming album Kandi Koated.
Burruss: The album takes you on a trip through a relationship. It’s all about finding love, having love, losing love … There are a couple of let’s-get-back-together songs. But it takes you through all those different emotions. It’s an R&B album, and there some very big ballads on there. I had songs from Ne-Yo, Justice League, Brian Michael Cox and Jazzy Pha, who produced the single “Leave U.”
A new episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Monday at 10/9c on Bravo.
Though the pair remain in love, at least according to them, they no longer feel a rush to get married right away. “We’re waiting a little bit,” she told PEOPLE magazine. “We really want to make sure we’re doing this right.”
Ali however makes it clear their decision to wait has nothing to do with a change in feelings towards each other. “Nothing has changed – we’re still just as happy as we were,” adds Ali, 26. “When we were finished [with the show], we were so excited. We were like, ‘Oh, we’re going to get married right away.’ But if you’re rushing because you’re in love, why rush? [Just] wait. You’re going to get married any way. We’re both sort of enjoying life.”
Ali and Roberto are currently living together in San Diego, CA.

Just a week after news first hit about Rachel Zoebeing pregnant, UsWeekly is now confirming the news.
In the latest issue of the magazine, the pin-thin stylist who is a reported size 00 is confirmed to be expecting her first child with husband of 12 years Rodger Berman.
“It’s very hush-hush,” a source says of the Rachel Zoe Project star. “She’s telling people she can’t travel,” adds the insider. A witness adds that at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic event in L.A.’s Pacific Palisades area on Oct. 10, Rachel only sipped on water with lemon, while Rodger drank champagne.
Rachel’s former employee Brad Goreski also had the following to say to UsWeekly without confirming the pregnancy: “I hope to be in the delivery room!”
The above photo of Rachel, 39, was taken on Sunday, October 10. She looks to be sporting a slight baby bump no?
More photos of Rachel below. Must say we are shocked that someone of her size, in addition to her age was able to get pregnant. Congrats to Rachel and Rodger.
In the latest ‘Art’ issue of W magazine, Kim takes it all off yet again both on the magazine cover and inside the mag. The 29-year-old is seen in photographs, taken by famed art photographer Mark Seliger, covered in nothing but silver paint.
It’s a bit surprising to see Kim posing nude again as she has expressed regret and even apologized for posing nude in Playboy years ago, albeit she made the comments while she posed nude in Harper’s Bazaar magazine earlier this year.
“I’m sorry I did Playboy. I was uncomfortable,” she remembers, though at the time she was excited. “Go for it,” she recalls her mother saying. “They might never ask you again. Our show isn’t on the air yet. No one knows who you are. Do it and you’ll have these beautiful pictures to look at when you’re my age.”
The edited version of Kim’s nude images below. You can see the NSFW versions by clicking here.

Jersey Shorestar Mike Sorrentino aka The Situation got eliminated following his very low scores from Monday night. The Sitch however took things in stride, telling co-host Brooke Burke, “You know what, I told myself if I got eliminated today, I put it all on the floor last night. I really hoped [the scores] weren’t fours. But it is what it is, and at the end of the day, someone’s got to go home.”
The Situation’s elimination wasn’t exactly a surprise as he received the lowest score on Monday night. In the bottom two with The Sitch last night was Bristol Palin, who also scored low on Monday.
The Sitch also revealed he was happy he got to show another side of himself, other than the party-boy persona that is shown on The Shore. “I’m not a dancer, and this is definitely hard,” he explained. “On ‘Jersey Shore,’ you get a little keyhole of who I am. On ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ you really get the whole Situation.”

Episode 2 starts out with Kim Zolciak and her assistant Sweetie going for a beer run or walk or something. One hit wonder Pop star Kimmy feels she needs to look great, you know, considering she is a big pop star and all now. The two end their run by re-hydrating with a beer.
We see a very pregnant Phaedra at her workplace. The attorney is meeting up with a non-celebrity client of hers who was arrested for marijuana possession, and no, it is not Nene’s son Bryson, just in case you were wondering. “Unfortunately, 1 in 3 black men will be indicted for a felony and do some prison time. Instead of us punishing people who have obviously served their time, we really need to embrace them so that they don’t have to go back into crime,” states Phaedra, who is obviously doing her part by marrying an ex-con shortly after his release.

The mag reports Jill, 46, is taking meetings “about her own reality show.” An insider states, “She likes the title: Jill Gets a Hobby” (a play on words stemming fromBethenny Frankel’s comments telling her to “get a hobby” last season.
“Jill wants it to focus on her and her sister (lawyer Lisa Wexler whom Jill wrote a book with) but her sister is boring,” says the source. “Jill feels done with Bravo after last season. She thinks Bethenny and Andy Cohen conspired to make Bethenny look like a victim.”
Jill’s rep is however denying the story, telling HollywoodLife that UsWeekly’s story is “totally fabricated.” For some odd reason, we will choose to believe UsWeekly over Jill.
In other NYC news, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps is angling to appear on broadway according to her rep, who tells RadarOnline LuAnn wants to expand her brand by taking to the stage.

The rep however adds LuAnn cannot officially do anything until she finishes filming the 4th season of the NYC Housewives in Januray. Umm good luck with that Lulu.
