If you were hoping the Kardashians would fade into obscurity following a year of famewhore antics gone wrong, think again! They’re back and apparently as big as ever. According to the ratings, the Sunday night season premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians hauled in an impressive number of viewers.
Nearly 3 million (yes, I said million, not hundred) people tuned in to catch a glimpse of Kimmie Kake‘s butt, Khloe Kardashian‘s paternity drama, and a Kanye West sighting. I personally watch for Bruce Jenner‘s mutated face. I keep hoping and hoping to see some semblance of normalcy return to the rubber mask that has eclipsed his head.
Most shocking, the ratings for KUWTK are up 16% since last season’s premiere. And surprisingly the show did really well in the coveted 18-49 year-old-demographic, with 1.5M women making up the viewership last Sunday according to The Hollywood Reporter. I thought you people were boycotting?!

Poor Kim Kardashian…girl just can’t catch a break! Not only is she playing the role of dutiful girlfriend while on tour with Kanye West, ahem, I mean coincidentally in London with him while she promotes her fragrance line, but she also must put up with groupies as well. Sources report that Kim has put the kabosh on him greeting fans after his concert, but she’s still envious of his relationships with different females on the tour.
The source reveals, “Kanye has a load of girls he’s friends with. Most are stylists or from the fashion set but Kim’s not happy about them being alone with him backstage. She sees how well he gets on with girls because of his sensitive side and has decided to rein in the entourage a bit. Kim is trying to put a stop to this as she doesn’t want to look or feel awkward at any point.” I’m sorry, his sensitive side? I may or may not have just spewed coffee after reading that!
From the NBC press release: “Kim has grown closer to her loving family than she ever was before, Kourtney and Scott are preparing Mason for the arrival of his little sister, Khloé strives to spend time with everyone she loves, Kylie and Kendall have discovered new ways to step out from the shadows of their older sisters, Rob is finding his own way in business, and Bruce and Kris go through a rough patch after Bruce reveals that he feels taken for granted.”
The Kardashians will also continue to expand their empire by opening DASH boutique and pimping more products than ever. Oh, joy.
Photos of the family and a video preview of tonight’s episode are below!
Kim Kardashian is over in London this week to promote her various products (who can keep track!?!). Instead of putting all of her photos in the weekly roundup next week, we thought we’d spread it out a bit. And we want you to weigh in on Kim’sLondon looks.
In the above shot, she’s attending the launch of the QuickTrim Essentials Kit at the St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel.

Oh Kartrashians…you say one thing and then do another. Perhaps that is why you are ridiculously hated rich, while I just have the privilege of writing about you. Me? I say one thing, and then, well, do it. Even it’s just taking out the trash. “I’m taking out the trash.” And then I take out the trash. But that’s just me, and my example regarding trash is in no way a comparison to your empire. Or is it?
Just when you were regaining the tiniest smidgen of respect for Khloe Kardashian for shelving Khloe and Lamar in order to work on her marriage, you may want to rethink your stance. HollywoodLife.com reminds us that Khloe and her famewhoring sisters stopped by Jay Leno this week, where Khloe dropped a bomb I was totally not expecting.
She told Jay, “I understand people have to sell magazines, but I didn’t pull the plug on any show, it’s not ending. I just said I wanted the summer for ourselves and to be with family and spend time his kids. Tryouts are in the first week of July. They only take 12, but to be in the top 12 is like a Grammy nomination. I didn’t pull the plug, let’s just call it a hiatus.” So does this mean there is a future for Khloe and Lamar? Granted, it’s the only Kardashow I actually don’t hate myself for watching, but I was so proud to see her bucking Kris Jenner the system that I hate to see her back pedal. But I guess it’s in the genes, so I can’t fault her much.
Kim Kardashian just never stops, does she? The ultimate famewhore, who really defines the term with her desperateness, is now trying to nab a slew of A-List friends thanks to her fauxlationship with megastar Kanye West.
The NY Daily News is reporting that Kim is desperate to get on Beyoncé‘s good side. Kim flew to London yesterday to accompany Kanye during his concert with Jay-Z. And Kim’s motivation for the five-day trip has nothing to do with being a supportive girlfriend! “Kim wants to travel everywhere with Kanye, but she’s also trying to do whatever she can to get close to Beyoncé,” a source reveals. “So, if Bey and Jay are going, she’s going.”
Kim would “live and breathe to hang out with Beyoncé,” the insider continues. Sadly for Kim, Beyoncé continues to have no interest in a relationship with the reality hoegul – and neither do the rest of Kanye’s A-lister friends. Poor Kim was even, allegedly, banned from the recent Met Costume Institute Gala because Anna Wintour didn’t want her ilk infiltrating the classy event.
They won’t go away, so I am doing my best to embrace them. Who am I kidding? Given the allergic reaction I seem to be having, that must mean it’s time for our daily dose of Dash. First up? A glorious baby shower hosted by Queen Bee Kris Jenner.
As you know, Kourtney is bringing yet another Disick Kardashian into the world, and her mother graciously hosted a soiree this past Saturday to toast the impending birth of Kourtney’s daughter. Life & Style reports on the event. I’m sure of course we’ll all get to see it when it airs on one of their many reality shows. These folks don’t do anything without cameras present, right Ray J?
A source tells the magazine, “Kourtney’s shower was so nice! Her mom and sisters were there, of course. They talked, laughed, and played games. There was a bar and lots of different types of foods and desserts, including sushi and little sandwiches. She seemed happy and excited earlier in the day before the shower. Her son, Mason, was there, too.”
“Lehr & Black did Kourtney’s shower invitations,” adds another ‘insider’ citing, “They were beautiful.”
It’s Friday and time for a whole mess of news about your favorite celebutante, Kim Kardashian. We’ll start with the most exciting news, and that’s the news that Kim and her soon to be ex Kris Humphries will soon be deposed as part of their divorce proceedings. And you know what that means — all kinds of Kardashian dirt is about to emerge!
HuffPo reports that it’s still up in the air whether or not we’ll be treated to a Kim video deposition, which naturally the very shy reality queen does not want to participate in. Kris’s lawyers want her to go first. The pair’s next court date is set for August 15, with their interviews tentatively scheduled for early June. Somehow I have a feeling someone, somehow will get a copy of these depositions. And I can’t wait! Kris’s lawyers are eager to get started and make the decision about whether to pursue a fraud case. Radar has a great quote:
Kris wants a divorce trial so that the truth can finally come out. Amongst other matters, he wants to know about the Ferrari that the couple got from a very wealthy Malaysian businessman that attended the wedding. Kris was at Kim’s house when the car was delivered — it was given to both of them, but Kim has kept sole ownership and has used it extensively. She will be asked about it, under oath, on the stand at the trial.”
