The book titled ‘I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Kids on Love, Faith, and Family,’ has only sold 10,084 copies since its April 13th release reports UsWeekly. The non-fiction title debuted at #11 on the New York Times’ non fiction bestseller list, and at #103 on USA Today’s bestsellers chart.
Compared to the huge success of her previous books, including Multiple Blessings which sold 523,000 copies in 2009, the sales numbers for the new book is down right disastrous. According to experts, it is on par to sell only 50,000 copies, despite her recent media blitz.
There is however some good news for Kate. According to TMZ, the Pennsylvania Dept. of Labor has approved and cleared her eight children to continue to appear on reality television. As we previously reported, Kate has two new upcoming reality shows with the TLC network, including Kate Plus 8, which will continue to follow the lives of Kate and her eight children.
There’s a new shocking report by UsWeekly magazine claiming The Hills star Heidi Montag might be addicted to painkillers after undergoing 10 plastic surgery procedures last year.
According to US, sources on the set of The Hills fear that the 23 year-old reality star is in trouble. “She’s a shell of her former self,” a show insider reveals. The source adds that Heidi and her husband, Spencer Pratt, have developed increasingly weird behavior, which includes falsely accusing the Hills creator of sexual harassment, and Spencer threatening the life of a female producer.
“They are addicted to the fame,” the source says. “As The Hills winds down and people start to care less, they are desperate to get back that high.”
In other news, PEOPLE magazine is reporting that Spencer has created a dating reality show for Emilio Masella, the ex-boyfriend of Jersey Shore star Snooki. Despite only being dumped by Snooki just two weeks ago for being a famewhore, it seems Emilio is wasting zero time in moving on.
Apparently Spencer has a production company (who knew?), Pratt Productions, and has teamed up with Emilio for his new dating show, Fist Pumping for Love, which will follow Emilio as he travels the country “in search of love.”
“I am tired of these fake Italian girls,” said Emilio, who dated Snooki (real name Nicole Polizzi) for four months. “I want a real guid-ette who can speak Italian, so we are prepared to take my search from Hollywood, Calif., to the streets of Howard Beach in Queens, N.Y.”

After a few weeks of silence, it seems Tamra Barneyand Simon Barney are back at it again. Despite their past pleas and promises to make their impending divorce peaceful for the sake of their kids, their actions continue to tell a different story.
According to TheDirty website, Real Housewives of Orange County star Simon posted the following message on his facebook page this past weekend: “It was Tamra’s weekend to have the kids & she left & went to LA with Lynne, Frank & her Boy Toy. She was suppose to return Sunday but she called and said she got “Stuck” in LA. LA is only 45 min. away how do you get “Stuck”? But yet she had pics of them out at lunch & shopping yesterday.”
A quick look at Simon’s facebook page this morning shows no mention of the above post, but there’s a good chance he has since deleted it.
Tamra however didn’t take too well to the post/accusation and sent the site’s owner, Nik Richie (yes the same Nik Richie who just married former Bachelor winner Shayne Lamas), the following text message –
“Hi Nik, I just read the recent post about me going to L.A. It makes me sick that Simon stoops to such low levels to make me look bad. I’m not going to get into a public pissing match with this bitch! But it is all a lie to make me look bad. He is mad cause I was out having fun WITHOUT him. His control issues will never stop. I hope the man gets help soon.”
A screenshot of Tamra’s text message is below. Tamra and Simon both need to stop airing their dirty laundry and start acting like adults, at least for the sake of their kids.

The Jon Gosselin and Kate Gosselin saga is never ending. Just weeks after attempting to get primary custody of his eight children, Jon has now decided to drop his custody and child support case against Kate.
According to TMZ, Jon and Kate are now getting along, with sources connected to the situation revealing that Jon never really believed Kate was an “absentee mom.” Jon and Kate are reportedly now trying to hash out a custody and child support agreement that is more up to date than the one currently in place. Basically Kate is now earning more money than Jon, who is required to fork over $22,000 a month in child support.
More surprising news than Jon & Kate getting along, is news that Jon has been offered a spot on the next season of Dancing With The Stars. Yes you read that right. This was reported on E! News Tuesday evening. However Jon has declined the offer citing that he doesn’t want to appear on TV wearing the crazy dancing outfits. But with news that the father of eight is going broke, there’s a good chance Jon might change his mind as Kate reportedly earned over $200,000 from doing the show.
Meanwhile, a Pennsylvania Judge has ordered the divorced couple to attend a 3-hour parenting class according to TMZ. The judge in their bitter custody case has ordered them to complete the parenting class titled “Children in the Middle,” which is said to be a requirement for all parents involved in a custody war in Berks County, PA.
And Kate revealed this week that she did not watch the latest episode of DWTS. The reason? Well apparently it is simply too difficult for the Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom who says, “I could not watch it. I’m too sad.” Kate continued, “I miss everybody. I have post-DWTS depression.”
Kate was also photographed showing off her toned and tan abs Wednesday, as she left the gym in Wyomissing, PA. A photo of that is below.

Above is the latest photo of reality star Kim Kardashian, taken on April 27th in Los Angeles. The 29-year-old reality star continues to look rather unrecognizable and looks to have had some more work done around her lips and mouth area. Since her recent break-up from Reggie Bush, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star seems to have gotten carried away, looking more plastic with each recent public appearance.
Dear Kim, please stop messing with your face. You are pretty enough, you are beautiful enough. You are starting to look like the joker offspring of the infamous Catlady and Donald Duck. Please stop with the visits to the surgeon’s office before it’s too late. PLEASE, JUST STOP. Sincerely, Reality Tea.
The quirky 20-year-old Massachusetts native found herself in the bottom three with Casey James and Michael Lynche, despite receiving praises from the judges Tuesday night for her rendition of Shania Twain’s‘Any Man of Mine.’ She was the lowest vote-getter out of the 33 million votes cast via phone calls and text messages from across the nation.
Siobhan showed little emotion at being voted off, saying she had done her best before launching her farewell performance of “Think.”
And just like that, we are down to the final 5 on American Idol with Crystal Bowersoxbeing the only female left on the show.

For someone who is highly popular and well known for her personal life, not much has been revealed about Kim Kardashian’s first marriage, that is until now.
Star magazine was able to uncover the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s divorce documents, which shockingly details abuse at the hands of her former husband and music producer, Damon Thomas.
Kim eloped with Damon back in January 2000, much to her parents dismay. Kim was 19 at the time, and Damon was 29. According to Kim’s statements in the divorce papers, the abuse began shortly after the couple got married. “Damon first hit me a few months after we were married,” she says in the statement, before going on to describe several instances of alleged abuse in detail.
“One incident occurred on the day that Damon and I were going skydiving with Justin Timberlake,” Kim says. “Before we left home, Damon hit me in the face and cut my lip open. I fell into the bed frame and banged my knee hard.” Another incident involved Damon learning Kim had paged someone,” which then led to another violent episode. “He became enraged and punched me in the face. My face was bruised and swollen as a result.”
In the documents, Kim also acknowledges never calling the cops. “I thought about calling the police but was afraid and decided not to do so.”
According to Kim, the abuse was not just physical, but also psychological. Kim claims she was forced to quit her job and stay at home because Damon “wanted to know where I was at all times.” “He often arrived home at 4:30AM and expected me to prepare a meal for him at that hour,” she says. He would also demand that she “ask permission” to go to the store or out to dinner with friends. Damon also gave her thousands of dollars and told her to get liposuction.
Damon filed for divorce in 2003 after three years of marriage. The divorce was made official in 2004 and he was ordered to pay Kim $56,000.
Damon has since come out denying the abuse claims.
