Keeping up with the Kardashians

A few days ago, Kim Kardashian, Ryan Seacrest, Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys and a slew of other celebrities announced they would be dying digitally starting Dec. 1 all in the name of charity.

To get things going for the stupid/narcissistic charity stunt, some of the celebs even decided to play dead by posing in a coffin. See above. The goal was the celebrities would stop tweeting and facebooking until $1,000,000 was raised in honor of World AIDS Day. The organizers promised “everyone will be back online and tweeting in no time” once they reached their $1 million goal.

Sounds like a great plan right? Because surely with stars like Kim Kardashian, Ryan Seacrest and Lady Gaga, the $1 million would be raised within a day. Well, we thought wrong as the stunt seems to have backfired.

It is now 3 days into the charity event and as of Friday morning, the latest donation tally on the official buylife.org website shows that only $183,268 has been raised, meaning it might be a very long while before we see any new tweets from the likes of Kim K. The charity is still over $800,000 shy of their goal.

A new report by TheWrap tries to examine what went wrong with this charity stunt. A key factor might be the fact that the organizers put a $10 minimum on donations. The economy has yet to fully recover and most people might be more inclined to give with a lower minimum.

Another critical error is the fact that the digitally dead celebrities are not able to promote the cause for which they lay dead for, you know, because they are dead and cannot tweet. A look at Kim Kardashian’s twitter page shows her last tweet, to promote the charity event, was made two days ago.

The biggest shocker of it all is that this charity stunt is failing in spite of Kim K’s 5 million followers on twitter in addition to Lady Gaga’s 7 million followers. Guess these celebrities overestimated their clout. This latest stunt might end up costing Kim K financially as she gets paid to promote a number of products and events via tweeter, and most of her endorsement deals require her to tweet about the products.

Following many millions earned and many years of successful numerous endorsements, it seems the Kardashians sisters have hit a major bump with their latest effort to branch into financing.

Just 3 weeks after announcing their endorsement deal with mastercard for their own prepaid debit card – Kardashian Kard — the three sisters, Khloe, Kim & Kourtney, have officially pulled the plug on the deal.

According to TMZ, the Keeping Up With The Kardashian stars sent out a “Notice of Termination” to the companies behind the card on Monday afternoon — stating that they’re sick of the “negative spotlight” after the Attorney General of Connecticut opened an investigation to determine if the card violates consumer protection laws.

The “Kardashian Kard” includes a picture of the trio on one side and was aimed at young adults. It immediately came under attack after the hidden fees were revealed to the public. For example, It costs $59.95 just to buy the card for six months, or $99.95 for 12 months. Which doesn’t include any money on the card as the card owner was responsible for adding money to it.

Unfortunately, the fees did not end there as after those six or 12 months are up, it then costs $7.95 a month to keep using the card. Users also had to pay $1.50 to withdraw cash from an ATM, and $1 to check their balance. Talking to a customer representative? $1.50 for each call, and canceling the card costs $6.

And oh yeah, losing the card also results in a charge of $9.95. Ultimately, consumers lost money before even getting the chance to use the card. In the letter obtained by TMZ, the Kardashian lawyers wrote, “The Kardashians have worked extremely long and hard to create a positive public persona that appeals to everyone, particularly young adults,” before adding that the investigation “threatens everything for which [The Kardashians] have worked.”

Those who have the card still have up to 30 days to continue using it. Once the 30 days are over, they would receive refunds of balances and up-front fees.

It’s official! Kim Kardashian is dating Gabriel Aubry confirms UsWeekly.

Despite stating she wanted to give the single life a real shot just weeks ago, it seems Kim, 30, has found something special in Aubry, 34. A source tells UsWeekly Kim and Gabriel, a model and ex of talented celebrity Halle Berry, are the real deal.

“They met through friends and have been dating a few weeks,” says the source. “It’s sexy!” Adds Kim the insider, “They decided to step out together at the game.”

Since being dumped by ending her long term relationship with Reggie Bush back in March, Kim has been linked to a number of famous men including Miles Austin, Kanye West and John Mayer.

E! Online also reports Kim and Miles had a recent date night on Thanksgiving day with a source telling E! that Aubry is the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s “official boyfriend.” A photo from that date is below.

In other Kim news, she is making headlines today for posing and playing dead in a coffin photo. The reason? She is among a group of celebrities trying to raise awareness for World AIDS Day on Dec. 1  by participating in the Digital Life Sacrifice event, in which she’s quitting Twitter and Facebook until $1 million is raised. A pic of that is below as well.

The NY Post is reporting that Lamar Odom is now suing his ex-girlfriend and mother of his two children, Liza Morales.

The reason? Well, according to the Post, Khloe Kardashian’s husband wants a judge to make a “parental access schedule” and set “reasonable child support” for his daughter, Destiny, 12, and son, L.J., 9, who live with their mom Liza in Manhattan.

Sounds reasonable enough except that Liza, 31, tells The Post she is shocked by the legal attack because she’s always had to beg Lamar to pay attention to their kids.

“Lamar basically checked out as a father four years ago,” Liza reveals. “They [Destiny and L.J.] haven’t had quality time in a long time.”

And despite the fact that Lamar and Khloe have started filming their own spin-off reality show, don’t expect to see Lamar’s kids on TV anytime soon as Liza will not allow their kids to appear on television. “It has come up, and I told them no,” she said. “I’m trying to raise my kids with old-school values.”

Liza also adds that Lamar has made frequent trips to New York but never tried to see his kids.”This whole going to the court thing — people, my neighbors — I don’t want them to think this is the kind of mother I am, that he has to go to court for visitation,” says Liza. “It’s just really shocking, because Lamar knows the truth.”

While there are probably millions of women all over the world who are single at age 30, apparently when it comes to Kim Kardashian, it is front page news material.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star graces the latest cover of PEOPLE magazine under the heading ‘Kim Kardashian at 30 – I Thought I’d Be Married By Now.’ Get it? Because she’s 30 and not married unlike her 26-year-old sister Khloe Kardashian, nor does she have any kids unlike her 31-year-old sister Kourtney.

“Is it weird that I’m now the single one? It’s definitely a change for me,” she admits. “I have always been the one in a relationship. I like that role, I want that best friend partnership.”

The single Kim does also add that she feels “powerful” being an unattached career woman. Our open letter to Kim is below.

Dear Kimmy, you’re playing this all wrong sweetheart. Appearing on PEOPLE’s cover to tell your woe is me – I’m 30, still single and hoping to fall in love soon story only scares them away. Telling PEOPLE magazine that you’re loving the single life and aren’t really looking to get married anytime soon unless you happen to find someone really special will have them lining up at your door. Sincerely, Reality Tea.

P.S. – Please stop messing with your face.

And finally, in addition to her perfume line, make up line, Quicktrim line, prepaid debit card line, Kim Kardashian is hawking adding yet another line to her long list of endorsements.

It seems Kim Kardashian continues to follow in the footsteps of her former BFF Paris Hilton. First came the sex tape, then the reality show, then the whole being insanely famous for nothing, and now an attempt to legitimize that fame by trying to sing.

According to TMZ, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been hitting the studio with top notch writer/producer/performer The-Dream.  And yes, this is the same Dream that is responsible for major hits such as Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).”

The important question now is can Kimmy sing? A “source” tells TMZ that “Kim’s got a really good voice.”

Above is a photo of Kim, 30, who according to her, hasn’t had any work done on her face other than botox.  Kim attended Heidi Klum’s 2010 Halloween party as Little Red Riding Hood.

TELL US – ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING KIM’S MUSIC?

It seems Kim Kardashian’s ex Reggie Bush was not a fan of the 1 hour finale episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which aired last night on the E! network.

On the finale episode, Reggie was portrayed as a very jealous ex who wasn’t happy that Kim was moving on with another NFL player - Miles Austin.

“I just feel like sh*t. It’s like literally driving me crazy,” an emotional Reggie could be heard saying to Kim, who had him on speaker phone. Kim was later shown on the show reading angry text messages from Reggie which included – “So glad I didn’t buy you a f*cking ring, I mean God, why was I ever considering that?”

Here’s what Reggie wrote on his twitter page early this morning, hours after the finale episode aired -

“Don’t make me expose you to those people who don’t know you…” -Jay Z (subliminal tweets)

I kinda feel like the government right now! Lol! Man if they only knew what I knew about you! Don’t smile in my face and frown at my back…

So how about them Texas Rangers! Lol! (changes subject!!!) ;-)”

Reggie has since deleted the second tweet. Kim’s other ex Miles also posted the following cryptic tweet yesterday – “Can’t knock the hustle.” Kim has received some backlash from fans who feel she shouldn’t have put Reggie’s calls or texts on the show. Here’s what she had to say about that criticism in a blog yesterday -

“I saw some stuff on the internet saying I’ve put Reggie on blast for airing a phone call with the two of us. Reggie and I were in a relationship for over 3 years and we have taped dozens of conversations and iChatted many times while filming, so this is nothing new or scandalous. Reggie is my friend, and whether or not, we are in a relationship, he is someone I care about. With that said I live my life on a reality show and to let you guys into my life, I show as much as I can. This episode is my most emotional and most vulnerable and it takes a lot to put yourself out there the way I did.”

We think Reggie might have missed the friendship memo. Kim is currently in NYC filming Kourtney and Kim Take NYC with sister Kourtney Kardashian. TMZ reported days ago that Kim is now dating musician John Mayer.
