Deck the halls with Kardashian stories! Fa la la la la, blah, blah, blah, blah! Because it wouldn’t be just another day if she wasn’t doing just another interview, Kim Kardashian is opening up about her failed marriage, the recent and tumultuous media backlash, and her sincere apologies for her part in the Kardarshiscam her family’s staying power and the future prospects of the Kardynasty.

Pagesix.com is reporting on Kimmie’s recent cover story for the Hollywood Reporter which cites her as one of the past year’s biggest “rule breakers.” In her interview, Kimmie discusses the family’s growing number of reality shows and threatens promises the shows will continue and multiply. She states, “There are so many of us, but I think we’ll see more of my younger siblings.”

With the family starting to focus on the next generation of Kardashians Jenners, Kylie and Kendall, as well Kim’s younger brother, Dancing with the Stars alum Rob Kardashian, the overexposed reality star predicts their “television monopoly will ‘go on for years.’” When is the next rapture scheduled? Geez Louise!

When will the rest of the planet have some relief? That’s simple, Kim reveals. The Kardashians will stop assaulting us from all fronts tabloid, television series and E! specials as soon as the money stops rolling in it is no longer “fun”. And I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but she means when it stops being fun for them, not us… because, in my opinion, it stopped being fun for me a while ago. Kimmie vows, “When the fun stops so will we.” Um, can the viewing public please get that in writing?

Pimpmomager Kris Jenner was shockingly right by her favorite daughter’s side for the interview, giving her two cents on the klan’s monopoly. Kris boasts, “I’m really proud at how hard we’ve all worked this year and what we’ve accomplished. We roll as one big unit, so whether something’s sad, happy or tragic, we come together as a family and everything falls into place.” And the money keeps falling into their inflated bank accounts. But whose fault is that? They definitely have an audience, even if most of that audience seems disgusted by them.

Not addressed in the magazine’s year-end double issue? I’ll give you two guesses, and the first one doesn’t count. There is no mention of her blink-and-you-missed-it marriage to basketballer Kris Humphries, not to be confused with her shoved-down-your-throat-even-people-who-live-under-rocks-saw-it wedding. Also absent from the article was any mention of the recent allegations that many of the products produced and touted by the Kardashian empire are created in Chinese sweatshops. Now, how surprised are you that those minor issues were inadvertently left out of the article? It’s Kimmie’s world, y’all. We’re just living in watching it.

Poor ex-husband Kris didn’t even get a mention in Kim’s interview, so you’re probably wondering how’s he’s holding up in this whole media firestorm. Well, with the NBA lockout over and Kris back playing with his beloved New Jersey Nets, things couldn’t be better for the dude glaringly left out of the Kasdashian Christmas kard (sorry, I couldn’t stomach starting Christmas with a “K” as much as it would have fit. I’m not going to give Kimmie Christmas!). He’s doing great… minus that entire Karbacklashian he’s facing.

Hollywoodlife.com reports that number 43 isn’t letting fan hate affect his time on the court. A source reveals, “[Kris] is letting it slide and not reacting negatively too it. He wasn’t really affected by being booed as he expected it from the Madison Square Garden crowd, especially playing for the other team.” Yeah, I’m willing to bet all the poor sportsmanship he was met with was purely a result of not playing for the home team.

The site reveals that nearly everyone in the huge venue booed the guy when the game began. That’s just not right! Kris, however, seems to be taking it all in stride. The insider continues, “He doesn’t blame Kim. This is all about playing basketball and he refuses to let the boos and hatred get to him.” He’s certainly a bigger person than I am, literally (thankfully, at almost 6’0, I’m not quite at Amazon status yet) and figuratively. Keep up that great attitude Kris because chances are it’s going to be a looonnnggg season.

DO YOU BELIEVE THE KARDASHIAN EMPIRE IS IN THIS FOR THE LONG HAUL? IF SO, WILL YOU KEEP WATCHING? THOUGHTS ON POOR KRIS’ RECEPTION AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN?

I remember idolizing the California rich and famous with their million dollar convertible cars, diamond encrusted watches and Peach Pit lunches alongside Color Me Badd. Things Beverly Hills used to be known for: ridiculously lavish lifestyles (thank you, Robin Leach!), Rodeo Drive, a snobby yet endearing Girl Scout troop (hats sashes off to you, Shelley Long!) and 90210.

Things Beverly Hills is known for now: Kyle Richards’ White Party (#sosorrybevhills), Jiggy as well as the Taylor Armstrong and Russell Armstrong tragedy. Whatever happened to “Donna Martin graduates!” and the iconic Pretty Woman mantra, “You work on commission, right? Big mistake. Huge!” Simpler times, I guess.

Because she’s not going anywhere one celebrity site is shedding more insight into Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Taylor Armstrong’s life… and the decision she may have hoped would secure her a spot on the potential third season of Bravo’s hit show. I’m exhausted writing about it, so she surely has to be tired living it. One would hope…don’t I wish.

RadarOnline.com is citing Taylor’s timing for her divorce filing from the late Russell Armstrong as a necessity to keep her in the network’s good graces. The site is reporting that Taylor “finally decided to file for divorce from her then-husband… because executives at Bravo had implemented a ban prohibiting the couple from appearing on the hit show after Russell sent executives legal letters threatening to sue.”

We all watched awkwardly (insert typical metaphor here — it’s a train wreck… you don’t want to see it, but you can’t look away) on the most recent episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. You recall that Taylor and Russell were turned away from Kyle’s annual White Party by the teary hostess (and a bada$$ Paul Nassif!) after Russell threatened fellow cast mate Camille Grammar with a lawsuit via e-mail for alleging abuse against his wife.

However, it seems Camille wasn’t the only one on the receiving end of Russell’s litigious barrage because a source close to the show claims, “During filming of the show, as the season progressed, [he] started sending blistering letters and e-mails to Bravo and NBC Universal executives threatening lawsuits. Russell was furious that Taylor had discussed their serious marital issues, including the fact that he hit her on multiple occasions.”

The insider continues, saying that Russell was irate “the fellow housewives were now talking about it on the show.” The insider reveals, “Russell would have had no legal leg to stand on because it was Taylor who was telling the girls this stuff. Bravo and NBC decided that Russell and Taylor were more trouble than they were worth, and decided to end filming with them, as soon as it became apparent that Russell was going to continue down that path.”

So what’s a girl to do?  Her spotlight in jeopardy and her husband an alleged ticking time-bomb, the Bravo star did what needed to be done.  The source says, “Taylor decided to pursue the separation first, but then she thought to get back on the show, she would need to file for divorce, so that she could appear on the show again, if she promised executives that she was leaving him for good.” Despite all the clauses the insider throws out in that statement, the entire scene is just plain sad. Whether you believe a woman was so desperate to remain on a television program that she would throw her marriage under the bus or that she was saving herself and her young daughter from terrors to come, the whole situation was/is/and will continue to be horrific and heart wrenching.

The insider continues, “[F]or a very long time [Taylor knew] that she needed to leave Russell because of the verbal and physical abuse. Being taken off a show that she loved doing because of his actions was the catalyst that finally made her pull the trigger on her marriage. Russell knew he was going to be exposed and was in full damage control mode. Ultimately, there was nothing he could do to stop it.”

Taylor won’t be seen on the show again until the new year according to the source who reports, “The episode that will air on Monday night will show all of the girls except Taylor going to Hawaii. Taylor will call the girls, and tell them on speakerphone while they are on their Hawaiian holiday that she had decided to leave Russell.”

Again, regardless of your opinions on this tragedy (and I have my own, believe me) it’s nothing but awful given Russell’s suicide, the fact that an innocent five-year-old is involved, and the notion that it’s all playing out for our “entertainment.” So sad, and yet please know the irony of me writing about it isn’t lost on this gal. Here’s hoping that outside the world that is Beverly Hills (past and present) you and yours revel in family and friends this holiday season.

THOUGHTS ON THIS NEW REVELATION?  DO YOU THINK TAYLOR FILED FOR DIVORCE TO STAY ON THE SHOW?  WHAT DO YOU THINK OF RUSSELL THREATENING THE NETWORK WITH LAWSUITS?

Santa Claus came early, y’all!  Forget about that cookbook, those cozy socks or that chic handbag you’re hoping to see under the tree – Real Housewives of D.C.’s famewhorusband Tareq Salahi has given you the most wonderful gift. His belly could definitely shake like a bowl full of jelly… ironic, no?

Tareq is finally responding to estranged wife Michaele Salahi’s recent allegations. It’s humorous, it’s mythical, it’s everything you would think it could possibly be. Tareq is quite “fra-gee-lay” in the following interview. Perhaps he should have asked Santa for a leg lamp instead of a plastic, White House party-crashing bride.

Tareq, who has filed for divorce from his better other half, spoke with the Huffingtonpost.com defending himself against Michaele’s claims of abuse. He begins, “She’s a piece of work. First it was she found true love with Neil Schon [of] Journey and now that she lawyered up, they are grasping for a way out so she doesn’t have to pay up her side of our financial obligations.”  Don’t stop believin’, Tareq!  She’ll come clean about her cheating ways and you’ll get your money! Will the Journey jokes ever get old (Perhaps in 2012, but not yet!)?

Tareq is still in contact with his former lady love. He says, “When I spoke to Michaele yesterday, she said she didn’t know her lawyer wrote those things and was sorry… I doubt that. She is very calculating and devious. So now, she says, after 12 years, I’m suddenly controlling or abusive… [w]hen in fact I loved her, and did everything to support my wife and put her on a pedestal to make her a shining star.”

“I really think Michaele thinks she’s still on Real Housewives and needs to create drama,” Tareq continues.  Well, someone certainly does, but I won’t name names! Seriously, why did these two part ways (besides that whole “she became a Journey groupie” situation)? It’s like they are the same person.

Tareq is quick to note that his wife is famous (poor choice of words) for twisting reality in her favor. He even goes as far to call her a liar, reminding ‘fans’ that “Michaele is a well-known and documented liar from The Real Housewives of D.C., to our personal life with her other false statements such as being a Redskins cheerleader,Victoria’s Secret model, college graduate, her M.S… Everything was a lie in our marriage.” So, Tareq was just as fooled as the rest of us about Michaele’s cheerleading past? Seriously? Even the Redskins knew she was never on the sidelines, but Tareq… he coveted those fake pom-poms until his marriage fell apart. I’m not even going to touch his accusations that the M.S. claim was a lie. Shame… on both of them.

It’s sad, really. Poor Tareq is just an innocent party, victimized by his soon to be ex-wife’s web of deceit. He reveals, “Michaele abandoned her home, committed adultery and lied to all her friends. Michaele lied about her real home [when] filming the Real Housewives.”  Truly? Michaele is the only one who lied about her real home? How tragic for Tareq to spend a full Bravo season filming and pseudo-living in a house that wasn’t. Even. His. He must be devastated to learn that truth. I bet Michelle Obama isn’t her half-sister either. Tareq must feel so betrayed — Why else would he have crashed attended that White House dinner?

It gets better. Tareq was totally blinded by Michaele. He thought she was “just a small town girl.” Too much? While it’s hard for him to admit, he shares, “Michaele lied to her husband about attending college. Michaele lied to her own friends, family and cast about an eating disorder. Michaele lied to the public about loving our dog Rio. In short, nearly everything [she] told me was an apparent lie.” Wait, she lied about not eating?!? I don’t buy it. However, when she starts pretending she loves a dog when she’s clearly a cat lady person, that’s when I draw the line. B*tch.

So, let’s break this down. Tareq was a doting, clueless husband, who is not at all shady or fame hungry while Michaele was brilliant enough to make up these falsities on her own. Sure, and he’s just friends with Michael Lohan because they share the same hobbies. I don’t know about you, but I’m about to pour a glass of Oasis wine and watch an episode of “Lifestyles of the Chubby and Irrelevant” if you’d care to join me. Those Salahis, bringing the Christmas cheer all year long!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF TAREQ SALAHI’S INTERVIEW?  WAS HE IN THE DARK ABOUT MICHAELE’S ALLEGED LIES?  DO YOU THINK EITHER OF THEM WILL EVER JUST GO AWAY? :)


Oh, Leah. Leah, Leah, Leah. MTV, as well as teenage pregnancy awareness groups, often advocate that the Teen Mom spin-offs (along with their 16 and Pregnant predecessors) are doing an amazing job warning young girls about the perils of practicing unsafe sex and having babies too early. While that may be very true, it’s ironic that the same girls featured on these shows as “examples of what not to do” are the ones who are learning nothing from their current situations.

Case in point, Hollybaby.com is citing a story that claims Leah Messer, the just recently divorced mother of twin girls, is expecting her third child with boyfriend Jeremy Calvert, 22. You know, the guy she met in July a month after finalizing her divorce (also the one she moved in with in October). Apparently, she’s taking things slowly for a nineteen-year-old which scares the old lady in me immensely!

One of Leah’s “friends” (God love these girls’ “true friends”) tells InTouch Weekly that Leah has wanted to get pregnant with her new beau’s baby for a while… and that ‘while’ can’t be more than a couple months just by math’s sake, given the pair’s quick courtship. The pal reveals, “She was actively trying to conceive with Jeremy. She stopped using birth control last month.” Can I make a suggestion that will likely be shot down by readers and MTV alike? If your teen moms really want to continue being teen moms several times over, it’s probably time to take them out of the rotation.

On December 9, Leah was seen leaving St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Virginia. According to the source, the already mother of two “was glowing.” States the source, “She looked like she had just heard some big news.” Said witness is apparently also a lip reader, as he/she reported that Leah called Jeremy on her way out of her doctor’s appointment — which confirmed her home pregnancy results — to exclaim, “I’m pregnant.”

The friend continues as he/she is getting paid by the word, “[Leah] sees Jeremy act like a wonderful father and she believes the baby will make the family stronger. She thinks this is the best decision for Ali and Aleeah.” No word currently as to whether the 2-year-old twins’ father, Corey Simms, agrees. I’m going to venture a guess that he’s not on board. A source close to the former spouses agrees, admitting that Corey is beyond angry with his recent ex-wife. Corey, 21, allegedly said, “[She is] a slut and doesn’t have her head on straight.” Let’s watch it with the name calling there, bud. You have daughters to raise!

Another friend (they just come out of the woodwork, don’t they?) shares, “Leah forgets that she’s only been dating Jeremy for a few months.” Concurring is Leah’s stepfather. The pal says, “He thinks she is too young for another kid.”

Hopefully, if this news is true, Jeremy is in on this grand plan. The same blog is also reporting that Leah is ready to bestow the role of new daddy on her live-in love, and she is openly gushing that she’d love to be engaged to Jeremy. Is MTV taking the hint and planning on yet another wedding as the backdrop for season 3 of Teen Mom 2?

Leah is going full stream ahead, she loves that Jeremy is acting like a father to the girls. She is more than fine with him taking Corey’s place,” says a source, who adds,“She doesn’t see anything wrong with it and is happy to be moving on.”

Not shockingly, Corey isn’t keen on being reduced to second fiddle in the twins’ lives. He retorts, “My girls know who their daddy is. I’d die for my girls. Jeremy is not there to replace me. No one will keep me from them.”

It is a blessing that the girls are loved by so many, with Jeremy tweeting on December 16, “Happy Birthday Ali and Aleeah! You girls mean the word to me. I love you both beyond words!” He followed up his well wishes on Tuesday with a declaration to their mother: “@TM2LeahDawn baby I’ll always be there for u no matter what ! I love you!” Funny… not too long ago, Mr. Calvert’s tweets were private. I guess he can’t leave his fans in the dark! Regardless, wow. Oh, Leah. Leah, Leah, Leah.

DO YOU THINK THAT LEAH IS PREGNANT AGAIN? SHOULD SHE BE TRYING TO REPLACE COREY WITH JEREMY IN THE TWINS’ LIFE? TRICK QUESTION—OF COURSE NOT! DO YOU THINK JEREMY’S TWEETS ARE APPROPRIATE OR SHOULD HE BE MORE SENSITIVE TO COREY?

Last night’s Teen Mom 2 doubled the depressing. Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry both battled issues with their distant mothers, while Leah Messer-Simms and Chelsea Houska spent twice the time in the hospital.

Leah is taking time off work to spend time with the twins. She can’t get over her anxiety about Ali’s impending brain MRI. Leah tells her friend that while her daughters are her world, her life would be very different — and probably much easier — if she had waited to have children.

Kailyn is signing the lease on Isaac’s and her new digs. She found the apartment through a non-profit group and she’s keeping the news secret from her mother after getting an ugly note from her mom’s live-in boyfriend. Kailyn is excited to share the news with her boyfriend Jordan and has already decided to turn the laundry room into a small nursery for Isaac since she doesn’t have a washer and dryer.  Jordan seems excited about the prospect of being able to visit Kailyn and Isaac without having to deal with her mom or Jo… although it’s hard to tell, as he’s almost as monotone as his girlfriend.

Well, after a week hiatus from Love & Hip Hop last night made up for the brief break… sort of. It was an eventful episode with Emily contemplating reconciliation with Fab, Kimbella and Yandy hoping for a non-existent apology from Chrissy, and Olivia’s manager Rich giving her some tough love.

The show begins as Emily and her friend Teairra go shopping for a statement furniture piece for Emily’s new place. There is a lot of discussion of how the scrotum should hang after examining a nude statute. Teairra wants to set up her friend on a date, but Emily is reluctant because she’s not ready to get back out there. It’s a conversation I could pay more attention to if I weren’t distracted by the giant stiletto shaped bathtub in the shop.

On last night’s Real Housewives of Atlanta the ladies don’t disappoint.  Cynthia Bailey opens her modeling agency, while Kandi Burruss consults with a country star. Sheree Whitfield and Phaedra Parks part ways professionally and Kim Zolciak is movin’ on up, Jefferson’s style. Nene Leakes also makes an appearance.

The episode begins as Sheree comes to Phaedra’s office to discuss her child support case. Phaedra feels that the hearing went very well, while Sheree is concerned that her case is flailing. Phaedra tries to explain the law to her client and defends her representation to a doubtful Sheree. Sheree thinks that the pair was blindsided in court, and they squabble about when the retainer was paid. Phaedra doesn’t want this case to come between her and her friend, so the ladies decide to end their business relationship with Phaedra referring Sheree to a different attorney. The duo part ways amicably (for now), with Sheree wishing her two-day lawyer had accomplished more and Phaedra wondering what kind of service her friend expects after hiring her twenty-four hours (give or take) in advance. WWJJD?  (Judge Judy…in case you were wondering!)

In the world of Beverly Hills, people have some real problems… not just the regular petty problems you and I have. I mean, if you suffer from Beverly Hills problems sometimes your friend and neighbor will accept an invitation to have her daughter’s over-the-top bachelorette party at a rival Vegas hotel and casino, when you yourself own a perfectly nice one for those type of events. The nerve!

Then, if your issues are really severe, said friend may get upset that you’re angry over casino-gate ’11 and insult your luxury shoe line.  Hopefully she won’t go as far to create her own competing line of stilettos, because let’s be honest, if that’s the case you should just pack it up and move to the Midwest. #realpeopleproblems!

You may have guessed I’m referring to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills former friends who live just a mile and a half driveway away from one another, Adrienne Maloof and Lisa Vanderpump.  When Lisa’s daughter Pandora accepted an invitation to have her pre-wedding party at somewhere other than Adrienne’s Palms Hotel and Casino, the bad blood between the former bev-hi-biffles began.  The drama only escalated when Lisa referred to Adrienne’s swanky show line as the “Maloof hoof” and promised to launch the “Vander-pump,” which will debut next year.

Star Magazine’s Radaronline.com is reporting that the ladies are no longer cooking chickens together… in fact they aren’t even speaking.  A source tells Star, “Now that the show is airing and they’re both finding out what was said behind each other’s backs, they’re both furious.”  It seems that the women “absolutely hate each other,” cites the insider.

The source continues, “Now, they’re never together unless they have to be for the show.  The friendship is done.”  Say it isn’t so!  I thought these ladies were such a hoot together… and the two of them totally encompass the ridiculously lavish lifestyles we want to see when tuning into the show.

Just so we won’t forget about her Adding her two cents about the ladies’ squabble, newbie cast mate and Adrienne pal Brandi Glanville gave a statement to RumorFix.com.  The whole situation like, OMG, totally sucks, according to Brandi who reveals, “There is a lot of tension between the two of them. It bums me out because they both are so great.”  Man, now I’m bummed out too!

She muses, “It’s hard for some of these women to share the spotlight and remember they are on a show with an ensemble cast and there isn’t just one star. There is room for both of them to be loved.”  Brandi makes a very good point… it’s too bad the ladies rarely listen to her.

Here’s hoping the ladies are able to air-kiss and make up soon.  They are much stronger together — and we viewers need their strength to make sure the franchise isn’t turned into “The Taylor Show,” as things quickly seem to be spiraling in that direction!

Taylor Armstrong was interviewed by Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Access Hollywood, answering questions about the program and chatting about getting her life back together. Lather, rinse, repeat.

As to whether she’ll be returning to the hit Bravo series, Taylor screamed, “Yes!  Yes!  Will they have me?  I lurve you, Andy Cohen!” stated, “We’re gonna see. We haven’t been picked up for a third season, so were gonna see how the year plays out.”

Taylor isn’t as concerned about her future on the show as she is about dealing with her estranged husband’s suicide.  Of Russell Armstrong’s tragic death, she reveals, “I spend sleepless nights trying to figure it all out.  I haven’t been able to put all the pieces together, but I think there were some bigger things at play… I’m gonna talk about a lot of it later.”

When asked if she would make her declaration on the show, Taylor replies, “No, just in life.”  I’m slightly worried about what that will entail. A twenty-four hour Taylor network?

She goes on to explain that sometimes the emotional turmoil becomes too much for her to handle. “Sometimes I’m just curling my hair and I start to bawl. It just comes out of nowhere. I’m just keeping myself busy to avoid feeling a lot of it… Sometimes you just break down and cry,” Taylor admits.

Of dating, Taylor is adamant that it’s not time yet. She says,“I’m not ready, I just need to focus on me and Kennedy and my friends. I’m just trying to get strong as a woman and sell my book.” Okay, so I may have added that last part.

While Taylor won’t be ringing in the new year with a special someone, she will be hosting an Ciroc Vodka/Bravo sponsored fete in Chicago to welcome 2012; while other Housewives will be attending similar events in New York, L.A., Miami and Houston.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF LISA AND ADRIENNE’S FEUD?  IS ONE OF THEM IN THE RIGHT, OR ARE THEY BOTH JUST BEING PETTY?  THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR’S INTERVIEW?
