Kim Kardashian is desperate to save her patootie after the media blitzkrieg she’s faced since ditching hubby Kris Humprhies after televising her wedding and divorce. To save her image (like she had a good one to begin with! ahem… sextape superstar!), Kim is doing anything possible to appear all good and sweet. She’s shopping and primping doing charity work in Haiti, publicly crushing on Tim Tebow, going to church, and now she’s considering adopting!

With a very public divorce trial likely on the way, Kim has to detract from the negativity swirling around her. OK Magazine reports that the vapid and desperate star isn’t ready to give up her dream of becoming a mother despite her disastrous love life.

And, since Kim told Allure Magazine she doesn’t want to destroy her expensive, surgically enhanced figure with pregnancy, what better way to achieve her latest whim than going the Madonna route and adopting? “Kim has always been very maternal,” an insider insists. “Of the three sisters, she’s the one who’s been saying that she’s ready for kids the longest.”

“Kim just wants to be a mother so badly,” the source reveals. “She has the money to do what she wants; she doesn’t need a man to take care of her or her baby.”

“It’s all top secret, but the adoption is already underway,” the source adds. “Kim is ready. She’s made inquiries and gotten information. Now she just has to decide where she wants the baby to come from.” Um… shouldn’t she start with a pet? She hates mess and couldn’t even handle Kris leaving his shoes on the floor!

After her life changing trip to Haiti, that’s her top pick to adopt from. “Haiti is at the top of her list, but she’s also drawn to China because of the sheer number of little girls up for adoption there,” the source explains.“Kim definitely wants to adopt a little girl.”

Of course, Kris Jenner is very involved in the process. Hey, that’s a lot of magazine covers and publicity photos she could sell, not to mention a new reality show! “Her mother wants Kim to adopt a baby from the Republic of Armenia. They still have roots there, and it would bring a lot of attention to that country — which has been ravaged by war for decades.”

Since she’s a Kardashian, Kim is already thinking of all the money she could make following in her mom’s footsteps by pimping her own daughter. Kim is estimating she can earn upwards of a $1 million dollars on the adoption story and subsequent coverage. “She’s a businesswoman, and she always thinks of ways to monetize her life,” the insider shares. “She’ll throw a baby shower to end all baby showers and charge vendors to take part in it. The first photos and interview with the baby are also likely to earn money.”

But, the source is quick to add that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star isn’t adopting for the wrong reason, she really truly does want to be a mom. Just like she really truly did want to be a wife! “I don’t think she’s adopting for sinister motives,” the source insists. “She’s doing it because she doesn’t want to wait to be a mother, and she also won’t have to stop her career with a pregnancy if she adopts. So, just like the wedding, her heart is in the right place.”

Kim’s family isn’t a hundred percent on board with her newest scheme. “Kourtney thinks it’s a good idea in general, but she’s urging Kim to slow down,” the insider remarks. “She’s worried it’s a knee-jerk reaction to the pain of her failed marriage.”

Khloe, however, is totally against it! “She thinks Kim needs to focus on finding a husband first and then worry about adopting a child. She says she’s going about it all backwards. Khloe hasn’t held back with her opinion — it’s causing tension between them.”

And, speaking of finding a husband, Kim is allegedly on the prowl again, and this time sinking her claws into music legend Kanye West! Kim is rumored to have had an affair with the star back when she was relevant and dating Reggie Bush!

Kim recently traveled to Paris to attend his Kanye West Ready-To-Wear Fall/Winter 2012 show at Halle Freyssinet ,and was spotted sitting in the front row. Afterwards, Kim allegedly hung out with him! “Go carting in Paris!!! Doesn’t get much better than this!” Kim tweeted. Something tells me Kanye is too smart for this, but you never know, and Kim is reportedly quite the freak in bed! A photo of Kim attending the show is above!

Finally Kim, has paid homage to fashion week by showing off her massive shoe collection. Her true baby. Kim, who recently donated an approximate $200,000 to charity in exchange for returning her wedding gifts, has an extensive collection. I would say, it cost a heckuva a lot more than that contribution she just made!

Kim posted the pics of her color coordinated shoe collection in Instagram. ”In honor of fashion week I’m posting pics inside my closet!” The photos are below! Color me jealous!

Ashley Hebert

In a new article for Life & Style, the newly engaged and super-svelte Ashley Hebert reveals how she lost 10lbs and got in amazing shape in preparation for her stint wooing a harem of attractive guys on The Bachelorette. So, apparently, Ashley, who weighs like 3 lbs went on a diet so she can weigh -3lbs.

For those of you who don’t remember a time when Ashley was anything but teeny, she apparently was emotionally eating over the heartbreak of being dumped by former Bachelor, Brad Womack on national TV and gained 10lbs as a result: “I was eating everything in sight. When you’re stressed out, you kind of just throw it back,” said Ashley.

Ashley also points the finger at all the fattening, free dinners and copious amounts of booze associated with being a contestant on The Bachelor giving former contestant Chantal O’Brien’s weight gain during the show as an example so she decided to eat healthier as the Bachelorette: “I don’t drink as much, and I don’t eat as many desserts as last time,” she says. “Now it’s fruits, vegetables, salads and chicken — staying healthy.”

In addition to eating right, Ashley is also working out to prepare for her rumored stint on Dancing With The Stars: “I teach dance classes — jazz and hip-hop — so I get a good mix of exercise types.” Maybe we can expect Ashley to release an aerobics video or a weight loss book sometime in the future?

In other Ashley-related news a rumor is circulating that she apparently got a little down and dirty with self-ejected suitor, Bentley Williams before his departure! According to Hollywood Life an insider reveals: “Ashley slept with Bentley before he left the show. That was the reason that she was so devastated.” The insider, Bentley further clarifies: “They kept the fact that they had sex a secret.”

However Ashley’s friends are denying that a secret sexual encounter ever occurred! Former Bachelor contestant Ashley Spivey and past Bachelorette winner Jesse Csincsak say it is impossible for an intimate hook-up of that magnitude to happen: “ It’s not possible,” according to Jesse in an interview with Hollywood Life, “They [the producers] don’t let you alone with anyone until you get down to the final four.” Ashley S. goes onto clarify: “While Ashley was attracted to Bentley at first, I know her, and there is no way she would do something like that with someone she hardly knows.”

No comments from Ashley or ABC have been released about the claim that Ashley may have, allegedly, possibly, perhaps hooked-up with super-villain Bentley, but Ashley is focusing on the positives in her life and as a result of her new body and new fiancé, Ashley declares: “It’s a new, enlightened me. I’m happy. I’m in such a great place right now!”

And on tonight’s new episode of the Bachelorette, Bentley will return for a meeting with Ashley in Hong Kong during which he will dump her for a second time. That airs 8/7c on ABC.

So, what do you think of Ashley’s new body? Do you think Ashley “went all the way” with Bentley?
