During a speaking engagement this week, the Kardashian-Jenner patriarch shared with the audience the fact that he’s not thrilled with Kim’s new fauxlationship. “I’m not that excited, but we’ll see. Kimberly and I have had a conversation about them and their potential relationship.”
His wife, on the other hand, is purring at the “new” development in Kim’s life. Pimpmomager is reportedly doing backflips over the potential to extend their time in the spotlight, and feels this pairing will take them all Kim to the next level.
A source tells Radar Online: “She loves that they’re together and thinks Kanye is a huge step up for Kim after her marriage to Kris Humphries. Dating Kanye puts Kim in a whole new stratosphere. Kris was just a basketball player making a few million dollars a year, but Kanye is a world-wide multimillionaire superstar.”
Kim had an obscenely extravagant wedding to an NBA player—can you imagine what Kris J. could do with a rapper’s wedding budget?
In other Kimye news, Kris Humphries reportedly had an awkward moment at the Marble Lane restaurant this week. Kris was hanging out with his sister Kaela when ‘Theraflu’ started blasting through the sound system. You know the song, the one where Kanye admits to lusting after Kris’ then-wife and threatens that he could have Jay-Z fire him from the Nets team. Good times.
Following yesterday’s report that Taylor Armstrong will be “phased out” of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the reality trainwreck star is freaking out. Even worse, Taylor allegedly found out about Bravo’s plan to gradually remove her from the cast from reading the tabloids! Oops—that’s gotta sting!
Upon hearing the gossip, Taylor immediately got on the phone to Bravo producers for reassurance, only to be told that the rumor was kinda true! “Taylor called because she was certain that there was no way that she was going to be phased out,” a source close to the reality star reveals to RadarOnline. “However, when she spoke with the higher ups they didn’t deny that she would be featured on the show in a much more limited capacity with a much smaller role.”
The news is devastating to Taylor, who is under contract for another year and will not be eligible to secure any other TV deals until released! “Taylor now knows that her days on the show are numbered. She is extremely upset because she just signed a contract extension for season three, but she wasn’t made aware of Bravo’s plans for her. She absolutely freaked out because she counts on the show as her primary source of income and uses it as a platform to secure other endorsement deals.” Uh-oh!
Moving on, Adrienne Maloofand her family are again threatening to move their NBA team, the Saramento Kings. If you recall, last season Adrienne was shown attending what could possibly be the final game at the King’s Sacramento stadium, and was faced with protests from local residents. Adrienne announced that upon learning how much the team meant to the community they had decided not to relocate the team.
However, a year later, things have changed. According to the NY Times, the outdated arena remains a problem for the team owners, and the family is hinting that the team’s days in the city are numbered. Yesterday, the Maloof family hosted a press conference in which they detailed plans to relocate the team, because a soluble agreement with the city could not be reached.
Apparently, in October of last year, the family reached a “handshake deal” with Sacramento Mayor, Kevin Johnson, agreeing to financial terms for the new arena; but the deal is no longer sufficient. The Maloofs would like the deal renegotiated and they would like to see progress to substantiate the agreement, but the city is not prepared to make changes or agree to a proposed renovation of the exiting arena. Other areas of contention include the lease agreement for the new facility, naming rights, arena design, and responsibility of game-day expenses.
The Maloof family also objects to the city’s request for a financial contribution of an additional $3.2 million towards the project when they were already expected to shell-out $73M. The NBA was prepared to loan the family $67 M and give them an additional $7M for the construction with the city kicking in $255M. Sheesh—that’s one hell of an outrageously expensive basketball court! Maybe they can borrow the court at the local YMCA?
“If [Mayor Kevin Johnson] says he’s not negotiating, then he killed the deal,” Adrienne’s brother, George Maloof, said in a press conference yesterday. “It’s over.”
Since the deal was non-binding, the Maloofs have every right to back out and begin looking for a new location for the team as the move is apparently imminent.
THOUGHTS ON LATEST IN THE RHOBH CASTING DRAMA? DO YOU BELIEVE THE NEWS THAT TAYLOR WILL BE “PHASED OUT”? IS IT A MISTAKE FOR THE MALOOF’S TO MOVE THEIR NBA TEAM?
“I do regret throwing the bottle, Shaunie (O’Neal) was there, and her or one of my castmates could have been hurt. Things went too far and I will definitely apologize for that. I would have felt bad if Kenya had been hurt, she’s a mom with two children, so God forbid if she’d have been hurt, and I could have gone to jail! My anger got the best of me with that.”
Evelyn feels that Kenya Bell was busy trying to stir up drama to keep her place on the show. “There were a lot of things going on while the cameras were off as well as on. She was always stirring the pot behind the scenes and saying things to producers to be relevant on the show.” Um, isn’t that what they ALL do?
Evelyn accuses Kenya of not being real. “It is hard for me to respect you when you are coming in and not being yourself. Her personality changes with whichever cast member she is with at the time filming.”
Things haven’t gotten any better between the two. “It is a strange relationship there, I don’t say friendship because we’re not friends.”
She says of the season finale: “I think people will be surprised who remains friends at the end of the season, there are definitely a few shocks. There are people who you think are solid and who are no longer friends, there are definitely friendships that don’t last, aside from mine with Jennifer.”
How does anyone stay friends with a hot head like that? I don’t find fearing for my safety an endearing quality in a BFF—you? They all need an anger management intervention!
The above photo is Evelyn at Millions of Milkshakes, whipping up her very own treat. Hopefully, she didn’t launch it at anyone. At least it would’ve been less painful than a wine bottle—am I right?
DO YOU THINK EVELYN STAGED THE BOTTLE INCIDENT TO GUARANTEE HERSELF A PLACE IN THE REALITY STAR SHOCKING MOMENTS HALL OF SHAME FAME?

Despite the continued scrutiny about who’s in and who’s out concerning the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, apparently, the ladies have returned to work and started filming season three. Didn’t season two just end yesterday?
No word on Brandi Glanville‘s prospective status, although, rumors have circulated that Kim and Kyle refused to sign on if Brandi was included in the cast (cause they’re like so mature like that); which led to Lisa seriously reconsidering her involvement in the show.
As for what viewers can expect this season–lots more of Kim and Kyle’s nonsense to be sure! And continued tension between Lisa and Adrienne. We’ll also see Adrienne expanding her Maloof Hoof shoe line. Which is funny, because the gorgeous specimens were recently spotted on clearance! Guess nobody likes a fat, cheap-looking little knock-off!
Additionally, things will be a lot more upbeat and fun this season. “Last year, things with Taylor were very intense and got very dark,” the source continues . “I think everyone wants to see the show wants to get away from that so Taylor can continue recovering from the tragedy and focus on raising her daughter.”
One thing is certain, the drama will be complemented by glamour, wealth, and chaos! “At the end of the day, the reason this is one of the most successful of the Bravo franchises is because these women are fabulous and they know how to really bring the drama. That’s not going to change one bit.”
And now onto the Taylor subject. According to Wetpaint, Loony Lips is, indeed, returning to the series and her focus will be milking her fifteen minutes for all it’s worth recovery. However, RadarOnline is now reporting that the infamous Ms. Armstrong’s days with Bravo are indeed numbered!
On Tuesday’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, viewers were reminded of how delusional Alexis Bellino is with her Katie Kourig-ing, and why they don’t like Jim Bellino one bit! Well, now the Bible thumping couple is speaking out in defense of their marriage and insisting they’re right with each other and the teachings of Jesus.
Taking to his own blog, created purely to dispel the myth of Bravo editing (which is why he supposedly stopped appearing on the show in the first place), Jim explains that his marriage is actually very balanced and supportive.
“This dinner was more than two hours long, but what viewers will see is a two-minute segment put together for TV that doesn’t really show you the in-depth conversation and the detailed discourse that was had,” Jim begins. Adding that while he is “no theologian” the bible evokes that “a husband and wife shall be like-minded in life’s journey.”
“As the head of the household, I know that ultimately it is my responsibility to ensure that balance is always a priority, and that’s exactly what I was thinking about during my dinner with Alexis.” (Bolded By Jim for dramatic effect!). And Jim says his scrutiny over Alexis’ schedule was purely out of concern for her happiness.
“If you looked up one morning to ﬁnd that your wife had three jobs and was running two companies, would you not want to address it with her, out of concern that she may become overwhelmed?;” he wonders. “Alexis is her own person, and I am not married to her to decide what challenges she takes up—I am here as her partner in marriage and in life to remind her of the big picture, just as she does for me.”

Does anyone remember Tareq Salahi? One-half of the infamous White House-crashing, Bravo grifters? And remember when his wife, former Real Housewives of DC trainwreck, Michaele Salahi, ran off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon? And Tareq reported her missing to TMZ? And remember when Tareq tried to auction off Micahele’s underwear? And then he said Michaele’s disappearance had killed his dog and sabotaged his career, so he wanted them to give him $17 million dollars? And then he spent every single day giving a certain media site exclusives–like the time Neal supposedly emailed him a photo of his penis just to torment him? And then she accused him of abuse? And they filed for divorce from each other? Then, remember when Tareq sued Neal for $50 Million dollars, claiming he ruined his life? And we all laughed?
Yeah… Well, apparently, a judge agrees with the rest of the world about how completely absurd, ridiculous, and stupid that so-called lawsuit is, because according to E! News Warren County, VA Circuit Court Judge Dennis Hupop ruled that the lawsuit (which Tareq appropriately filed on Valentine’s Day) is “not legally sufficient.”
Oops, well that’s unfortunate! I guess Tareq’s latest scheme just didn’t pan out… I’m sure there’s plenty more to come…
WAS TAREQ’S LAWSUIT BASELESS? WHAT DO YOU THINK HE’LL TRY NEXT?
