In today’s OMG news, the Kardashian family is apparently shocked that the leader of the free world doesn’t consider them good role models!
Yes, TMZ is reporting today that days after the first lady Michelle Obama revealed her husband President Obama isn’t a fan of his daughters watching the E! show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the family is now telling friends they were completely blindsided by that info!
How silly of the Prez not to consider sex-tape Kimmie and the cra-cra fam a positive influence for his kids! Oh the outrage!
According to TMZ, the Kardashians feel President Obama has them all pegged wrong. Umm no he doesn’t! It all started with an interview Michelle did with iVillage during which she stated, “Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians — when they watch that stuff — he doesn’t like that as much.”
The Kardashians were reportedly “surprised” by the news due to the fact that the Prez personally told Khloe Kardashianlast year that he thought the show was a “great show” when they met. Oh Khloe, it’s called being polite! See Khloe was at the white house last year due to the fact that her husband/Lakers player Lamar Odom was invited to celebrate his 2010 NBA Finals victory.
The Kardashian family is however insisting they believe Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, could actually learn a lot from their show because it features girls in real-life situations facing real-life problems such as “health, relationships, how to turn your sex tape into mega millions and fame, get knocked up before marriage and just be an all around waste of space to society!”
Okay perhaps I added in those last three! Below is a photo of Khloe meeting President Obama last year.
TELL US – ARE THE KARDASHIANS DELUSIONAL OR VERY DELUSIONAL? WHO DO YOU MAKE OF THEIR RESPONSE?
Kim Kardashian’s love life just never seems to work out – it’s just one unfortunate situation after another for the notorious sex-tape star and this time her marriage to Kris Humphries-Kardashian may be in big-time trouble! Their marriage has been plagued by rumors of tension since day one and it seems like things aren’t improving for the couple!
Life & Style is reporting that Kim is “miserable” and she and Kris are always fighting. In fact, Kim was recently overheard complaining to a friend over mani-pedis at Clover Nails in NYC, that she “didn’t know marriage was going to be so hard.” Wait – wasn’t she married before?
“With all this travel and work, it’s been a big adjustment for both of us,” she lamented. Further breaking the couple apart is Kim’s impending travels to Dubai and Australia. Unfortunately Kris is “not invited!” “She’s leaving him behind,” a source reveals.
Apparently mere months after her publicity stunt wedding, Kim wants to cry time-out on her marriage! “She doesn’t feel like she’s ready for the commitment,” a friend confided to the magazine. “Kim feels this all happened too soon, that she didn’t take the time to get to know Kris. She’s embarrassed – she rushed into things, and now she’s stuck.” Yikes.
Additionally Kim fears Kris used her for fame just like she used him for money and publicity.“Kim is definitely worried that Kris isn’t mature enough and could be using her for her money – especially since he’s not working right now with the NBA lockout,” according to a source from Kourtney & Kim Take New York(that’s a show?).
His immaturity combined with no certainty about where the couple is going to put down roots as they wait for Kris to sign with a basketball team, has forced Kim to put her baby-making plans on hold. Kim is apparently very dissatisfied that the couple has no real home and is currently living in a fancy hotel in NYC. The horror!
The source reveals Kim wishes she could participate in traditional wifely duties, like cooking Kris meals, but he would rather ditch her for burgers with his buddies. Makes sense to me – can she even talk about anything but herself?!
However, let’s get real here, their marital problems actually lie in Kim’s fears that Kris is upstaging her in the reality TV world! “He tries to have creative input in Kourtney & Kim Take New York. It’s her show, and he tries to dominate it.” She’s the number one famewhore in this relationship – not him!
Perhaps Kim is holding off on filing for the big D until they can cash all the million dollar checks they amassed in her big Made-For-TV, fantasy wedding! At least she can console herself by snuggling her Benjamins!

THOUGHTS ON KIM’S MARITAL WOES? ANOTHER PUBLICITY STUNT OR IS THE COUPLE HEADED FOR DIVORCE?
It’s no secret (though it is a komplete surprise) that the Kardashian Konglomerate is a big-moneymaking business. Led by Pimp Momager, Kris Jenner Kardashian, the family has raked in millions starting with a little thing like an accidentally leaked sex tape. Well, I have more bad news…
After earning a reported $65 million in 2010, it seems the Sisters Kardashian are slated to make… wait for it: $200-$300 MILLION dollars in the the next year alone from their Kardashian Kollection for Sears. But it gets better as they are predicted to be closing in on a Billion-Dollar empire in the next 2 years!
Brian Dow, a partner at APA Talent and Literaly Agency who reps the brands komprised of the Kardashian Kingdom, tells Women’s Wear Daily: “The Kardashians could easily be a billion-dollar business worldwide in the next two years.”
Especially since they are planning to take their Sears Kollection global with markets in the U.K., Italy, and Australia. I feel so bad for those other countries. Or should I say kountries? Wow – that’s an incredible payout for such cheap and tacky clothes!
In addition to dressing like the sisters, people apparently want to smell like the Kardashians too, as their fragrance lines are huge money-makers!
“Kardashian is the type of brand that can afford to be everywhere — we’re not concerned about overexposure,” says Philip Zellner, CEO of Lighthouse Brands, the company that produces the Kardashian fragrances.
“Everyone who watches and reads about them feels like they know them, that they’re part of their family. There is an aspirational aspect that the consumer looks up to, as well as the day-to-day drama,” Mr. Zellner believes.
Because according to Mr. Zellner, the four fragrance lines kreated by the Kardashians – three (and a fourth on the way!) from Kim and one unisex fragrance from Khloe and husband Lamar Odom – are expected to generate $50M! Who is buying this stuff?! I am seriously perplexed!
So, just to break it down in the next couple years these ladies could be raking in close to a billion dollars! Kue the lawsuits that will likely be rolling in… especially considering they are already being accused of kopy-katting.

Did you feel nauseous after learning about the prospective income the Kardashians may earn pedaling their wares? Have you ever a purchased a K product? Would you?
Speaking with Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM Radio show last week, Kim announced the couple is frantically busy with a new move to NY and figuring out where Kris will be playing next season, but happy! “I feel good. It was kind of crazy to go right from our wedding straight to New York,” Kim announced. “It’s been work non-stop, and I think [Kris] finally appreciates all the hard work we do.” I am guessing by hard work she means non-stop product pimping and reality TV whoring.
TheKeeping Up With The Kardashians star does admit there was some tension pre-wedding because she wanted help planning her fantasy wedding. E! didn’t hire her a wedding planning team? “I asked him to do a few things,” Kim recounts. “And he kept on being so opinionated … but when I asked him to do something, nothing would happen … It would take him forever to do something.”
“So I think I finally just lost it and was like, ‘I can’t do his seating chart, I can’t do any of the things on his side of the family.’”
Kim also reveals she will move wherever Kris’ career takes him! Hey, reality cameras can follow you anywhere! “I would go to Oklahoma City. We’re not going to live a separate life,” she explained. And as for babies – they’re coming! “Give us a year,” Kim teased!
While everything is happy on the marriage front, not so much on the business side of things! Famed jewelry designer, Alexis Bittar, whose pieces are spotted on celebs everywhere is calling Kim out as a copy-cat! Alexis claims that Kim’s collection, Belle Noel features pieces that look eerily similar to pieces he has actually loaned Kim to wear!
“In the reality TV world, there are so many people coming out with lines to capitalize on their TV shows. They are not designers and they are just stealing,” Alexis fumed! “I passed the Dash pop up store on Broadway, and I saw that Kim’s pieces were very similar to mine, and she definitely has been taking note (of my designs),” he continues.
After realizing Kim may be borrowing his items to replicate, the designer is calling quits on allowing her to wear his goods! “The tricky thing is that we have sent pieces to Kim in the past to wear, so now I have told my staff we cannot send anything to her.” Yikes! Didn’t they have this problem with their BeBe collection also?
Alexis isn’t planning legal action – yet! And he does admit he hasn’t spoken to Kim about the idea theft! “I haven’t talked to Kim about it, the truth is she might not even know. She might be so far removed from it (the design process), and her designers just go shopping and knock things off, “ he snipes!
“But we are definitely not lending to Kim any more, she has been barred,” he concludes. WOW! Bad news for Kimmie!
Kim’s rep, of coursed, dismissed the accusations calling the similarities “purely coincidental” and claiming that Kim “is constantly inspired by her travels which she incorporates into her designs.”
I say, where there’s smoke – there’s fire! Photos of Kim’s Bella Noel Collection and Alexis Bittar’s collection are below.

You know those sisters Kardashian…they can’t be out of the limelight too long or they start to shrivel. It’s kind of like they are the exact opposite of Gremlins, yet just as creepy.
Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you have no doubt been inundated with the good ol’ U.S. of A.’s version of the Royal Wedding. Okay, so not America’s version, but Kim Kardashian’s delusional self-titled version. Kimmie’s groom Kris Humphries is now getting a crash course in Kardashian, by joining his new bride on a media blitz to tout the two-part wedding special — Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event, which, of course, airs October 9th and 10th on E!
The hottest topic for the reality love birds? When are they going to add to the Kardashian (er, Humphries?) clan? Kimmie says, “I think we would wait like, a year before we really start trying to have kids.” She explains, “I think we want to figure out where [Kris] is gonna play and figure out his career and if we have to pack up and move somewhere, like the Midwest. Who knows?”
Kris agrees. He continues Kimmie’s sentiment saying he would like “lots of kids…having fun together, knowing that we can have fun and that life is fun and that we can spend time together and support each other.” Awww. It sounds almost like the Kardashian/Jenner family….minus the constant film crews.
The couple also joined Jay Leno who questioned the pair about wedded bliss, as well as adjusting to living together. When asked which of Kris’ habits most gets on her nerves, Kimmie divulged, “He, like, literally barks like a dog. It’s like him and his boys. Like one’s in the other room and they, like, all wanna leave, (so) they’ll be like, ‘Ar! Ar! Ar!’”
Humphries defends himself, exclaiming, “Not like that! It’s one bark!” And to be fair, he does kind of look like one of the werewolves from the Twilight Saga, so the barking makes sense to me.
While the newlywed ribbing seems to be all in good fun, Kimmie does provide a teaser for the wedding extravaganza. She admits, “My sisters attack him.” Kim further cites that her younger sister Khloe Kardashian “says whatever is on her mind. She just has no filter. Kris is the same exact way. They’ll go back and forth at each other and neither one of them will back down. It’s really hard.” You know what else is really hard? Avoiding tabloid stories about tension between Humphries and Kimmie’s sisters. While the rumors of unrest in this six(ish) week union run rampant, Kim reveals it’s for the ratings, “[T]he family gets through it.”
Below is a preview clip of Kim and Kris fighting over Kim wanting to keep her Kardashian last name from the upcoming E! wedding special!
While the older Kardashian ladies are dealing with cattiness among their bazillion reality shows, younger half-sister Kendall Jenner continues to make her mark on the modeling world. The 15-year-old stunner, who has been modeling with the Wilhelmina Agency since age thirteen, is the new face of White Sands, an Australian swimwear line. In fact, back in August, Kimmie joined little sis Kendall on her swimwear shoot. She posted pictures of her model sibling, saying, “How stunning does she look!?!? I couldn’t be more proud!”
Perhaps while reality gold runs through the veins of the Kardashian sisters, it’s modeling where the younger Jenner siblings will make their mark. The youngest of the reality family, Kylie Jenner, recently walked the runway in a show for singer/angsty designer Avril Lavigne, who is the girlfriend of Kylie and Kendall’s half-brother (and no stranger to reality television himself), Brody Jenner.
Below are the new bathing suit photos of Kendall!

Newlyweds/non-famewhores Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are already renewing their wedding vows despite being married for only a month-and-a-half!
The made for TV vow renewal for theKeeping Up With The Kardashiansstars was all courtesy of Ellen DeGeneres! On a pre-taped episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show (scheduled to air today), Kimmie, 30, and her NBA hubby Kris, 26, were candid with Ellen about their newlywed life and what they’d do differently about their Aug. 20 wedding.
“[I'd] elope,” said Kimmie Kakes. “I would say [have a] longer after-party, but I was so crazy for an entire month…I literally went crazy. It was so stressful,” she added of the wedding which she planned with the help of pimpmomager Kris Jenner in only a few months.
Kris also shared his regret, echoing Kimmie’s statement by stating he would have wanted “a longer after party.”
The two are currently doing a ton of press in other to promote their E! Wedding Special — Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event which is set to air this Sunday on E! at 8 p.m. ET.
In other Kardashian news, Khloe Kardashian, who co-hosted the fourth hour of the Today Show on Monday, opened up about her fertility struggles.
Khloe, who’s been married to NBA hubbyLamar Odom for over 2 years now (yes it’s been 2 years already), has always been vocal about wanting kids right away. However, that has yet to happen for Khloe.
“We would love to have kids,” said Khloe, 27. “It’s so hard. I never knew about ovulation and the limited amount of time you have to get pregnant. I never knew about that. No one ever taught me that. When you have schedules such as ours, it’s really hard to hit that mark. So it’s frustrating, but definitely, I want to have kids. It’s scary [thinking], ‘Oh God, what if I physically can’t have kids?’”
The Kardashians continue their take over of the Today Show this week as Kris Jenner will co-host today, Kourtney Kardashian will co-host tomorrow, and Kimmie Kakes will finish off by co-hosting on Friday.

The Arabian issue, shot by famed photographer John Russo, features a variety of Dolce & Gabbana “star” themed dresses – cause Kim’s a star, ya’ll!
Kim posted the behind the scenes pics on her personal website (which I know you all frequent daily), announcing: “This is my first cover in the Middle East and I [am] so pleased with how it turned out! Do you guys like it?” Well, do you guys like it? I think it’s pretty good. For Kim. More photos from the shoot are below.

Oh, lord – get the boxed wine ready… E! released the beautiful TwitPic Save The Date inviting all of us special guests to attend the super-private and intimate nuptials of America’s royal couple. #sarcasm.

In a sneak peak of the special, Kim and Khloe get into an argument after Kim discovers Khloe pulled Kris aside during their engagement party to inform him they are marrying too soon! Pot meet Kettle, Mrs. Odom.
Khloe’s defense is that she is protective of Kim. Oh, and Kris accused her of marrying Lamar Odom because of his Lakers status and Kris is jealous.
Well, Kim is so furious that Khloe tried to warn Kris about what he’s getting into ruin her special day, she threatens to uninvite her to the wedding. Seriously, Kim? The preview clip is below!

In an annual Pop Culture Poll conducted by Parade and Yahoo! OMG!, Kim received 29% of the vote to beat out even Charle Sheen as the most annoying celeb of the past year! Wow – um… that sucks, but why am I not surprised?
But don’t feel too badly for Kimmie as she is in good company! Joining her on the annoying list are a few more reality stars, most notably Jersey Shore star Snookiwho garnered 21% of the votes! Donald Trump also made the list with 5% of the votes.
And the news for Kimmie gets even worse as Vivid Entertainment’s Steve Hirsch tells TMZ the company REJECTED an offer to sell her sex tape! “We were offered $20 million for the Kim tape but have decided that we are going to hang on to it … for now.” Which means it’s still available for your viewing pleasure, if you are into that sort of thing.
Days after Kimmie tied the knot, TMZ broke the news that someone was actively trying to take the tape off the market. Many of course suspected it was Kimmie herself, something that now appears not to be the case.
Mr. Hirsch does tell TMZ that his reasons for rejecting the sale were honorable, all things considered. “Although the offer that we ultimately received was substantial,” he explains quelling suspicious that the offer price wasn’t as high as the 30M he was after. “When I realized that it wasn’t Kim it became less appealing. Kim is a superstar and if it were to be sold, it should be to her.”
If Kim keeps annoying the public it seems like her economic potential to earn enough dough to get that tape off the market is going to dry up soon! I’m frankly shocked that Kim wasn’t the prospective buyer – maybe she was hiring someone else to try and buy the tape for her?

Thoughts on the poll? Do you agree that Kim is the “Most Annoying Celebrity of 2011”? Are you surprised Kim was not the person trying to buy the Kim K sex tape?
