Aloha Basketball Wives L.A.! The ladies head to paradise and drama was not far behind. Jackie encourages Imani to confront Laura…but when she does, I’m guessing Jackie wishes she had kept her mouth shut. There’s about to be a coup amongst the group — after a successful surfing lesson.
The sisters Govan are shopping for swimwear to take on their upcoming trip to Hawaii. Laura quickly runs down her take on the ladies. She thinks after her talk with Jackie, things are straight between them. Her friendship with “Iman” has gone from a ten to a cool two, and don’t even get her started on Draya. Gloria hopes they can all have a lighthearted good time. Good luck with that.
Across town, Imani is hiring movers to rid her garage of all of Laura’s belongings. Imani had agreed to let her store some things when she moved back to Los Angeles, but now that she’s heard that Laura has been talking smack about her she’s no longer going to be her free storage unit.

It’s the morning after the divorce filing heard around the world and America is still trying to pick up the pieces, you know, after realizing they have been bamboozled!
Just to bring you up to date, Kim Kardashian, 31, married NBA player Kris Humphries, 26, back in August after only 9 months of dating. Kimmie Kakes pocketed over $17 million from the wedding only to file for divorce a mere 72 days/10 weeks/2.5 months later!
Fast forward to today, and Kim, star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, is on the receiving end of some major criticism while most media outlets are simply trying to figure out what went wrong.
According to TMZ, who first broke the divorce news yesterday to both the public and Kris, reported those close to Kim are claiming she truly agonized over her decision to file for divorce and went back and forth this weekend. That agony is clearly evident in Kimmie’s last tweet from Monday morning, you know, the same one she used to promote her newest Kardashian store!
Sources close to Kim tell TMZ she didn’t make her final decision to file for divorce until Sunday night and that she cried all weekend as she kept going back and forth on whether or not to file. Perhaps if one is having this much doubt after only 10 weeks of marriage they should have held off on filing!? Something tells me Kimmie was already picturing the publicity and magazine covers!
As for why Kim decided to file on Monday, it was because hubby Kris wanted to hire a Hollywood publicist over the weekend. Kim reportedly told one of her friends, “He’s not in f**king Hollywood. He plays sports.” Oh the irony of a famewhore divorcing her husband over being an alleged famewhore!
Yes, those close to Kim are now claiming she went through with the divorce because she now suspects Kris was simply in it for the fame. TMZ reports Kim’s friends are scoffing at Kris’ claims that he simply wanted a simple life with Kim in Minnesota. They’re saying he’s full of BS because once the marriage fell apart he immediately started “chasing fame.”
Camp Kim claims that once the couple started talking about the possibility of divorce last week, Kris went into full Hollywood mode, and started talking about “branding” the Kris Humphries name with cologne, nightclub appearances and what not. Not quite seeing the big deal with that but let’s continue!
Camp Kim also claims Kris was pushing to keep their connection going whether they ended their marriage or not which apparently threw up red flags with Kim. They, however, claim the breaking point for Kim was Kris’ decision to hire a Hollywood publicist over the weekend to work on his image. Why would this be such a bother to her??? Sounds like Camp Kim is grasping at straws here!
The HollywoodLife also has their take on things stating Kim decided to end her marriage after Kris decided to quit filming for Kim’s E! reality show Kourtney and Kim Take New York.
“Kim and Kris got into a huge fight last week because Kris told Kim he was sick of the cameras following him around and that he had had enough,” said a Kardashian family insider. “Kris said the reality show was ruining their marriage and it obviously took its toll on their relationship. But for Kim, it was the last straw. Kris had promised her that he would be on the show and that he was OK with all the cameras. Now that he is pulling out, Kim is throwing in the towel. She has had enough as well. They were only married for 72 days. Basically, the marriage should never have happened. There was too much of an emphasis on the wedding TV special rather than on their actual relationship. I think Kim was more in love with the whole idea of the wedding than she was in love with Kris.”
The insider also claims Kris isn’t the nice guy he’s portraying himself to be adding that he would always threaten Kim with a divorce. “Kris has been getting nastier and nastier and has been threatening Kim,” the source claims. “He has basically given her an ultimatum, ‘Move to Minnesota with me or I will dump you!’ This is really immature behavior. I honestly don’t know why they got married in the first place. They are so different.” The source goes on to state the obvious adding that “Kris was in over his head and Kim was so desperate to get married.”
Following the backlash from the public yesterday, as we predicted, Kim’s sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian took to their twitter pages to defend their sister. Khloe tweeted, “Reading some these comments r so hurtful. Im grateful 4our fans who understand & r being respectful. Hate is disgusting. Love is everything.” Kourtney also tweeted: “Our sister is going through a difficult time but we’re a close family and are sticking together like always.”
Kim and Kris both released statements yesterday and in Kris’ statement he makes it clear he still wants to work on his marriage to Kim, stating he is “committed to this marriage” and “willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”
When it comes to the criticism, Kimmie remains the butt of jokes both by the media and the public. The twitter topic #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage has been the top trending topic on twitter for over 24 hours. And many in the media are now speculating on whether the marriage was ever even real, and well, just check out today’s cover of the NY Post below!
As for Kim, she has dipped out of the country and was photographed (below) at the LAX on Monday night boarding a flight to Australia with Khloe. The two are headed there to promote their new Kardashian handbag line.
A masseuse was also spotted outside of Kimmie’s LA mansion yesterday bringing a massage table into her home. That poor little rich Kimmie…

Jersey Shore fans saw a drift this season between BFFsJWowwand Snooki, and according to a new report, the two are no longer on speaking terms.
The current issue of In Touch Weekly magazine is reporting that Jenni “JWoww” Farley, 25, is no longer talking to her former BFF Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 23. The reason? JWoww has had it with Snooki’s behavior — mostly her drunken antics.
The mag adds that JWoww has also felt cast aside by Snooki in recent months, since Snooki’s “controlling” boyfriend Jionni LaVallecame into the picture. Snooki has reportedly become one of those needy girls that ditch their friends to be with their guy 24/7.
Making matters worse, JWoww’s boyfriend, Roger Williams, hates being around Snooki and Jionni. “Roger and Jionni have never hit it off — so the girls never double date,” explains a source.
Yet the biggest reason is that JWoww is simply fed up with Snooki. The antics she once loved now irritate her. “JWoww is so sick of Snooki’s drunken behavior. She has a quiet domestic life with Roger and doesn’t want the drama,” a source says.
Unfortunately for the two former BFFs, this poses a major problem for MTV. See, as we reported a while back, JWoww and Snooki have been given their own spin-off by MTV, which is supposed to feature them living in a house together… as BFFs. But now “producers are stumped about what to do, since the girls refuse to get a place together,” says a source. Ai ya ya.
The source adds that as long as Snooki’s beau Jionni remains in the picture, it’s highly unlikely JWoww will make up with the Snooks. “They’re practically strangers now,” the source says. You can read more about this in the latest issue of In Touch Weekly.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS REPORT? SAD OR SURPRISED ABOUT THE DEMISE OF THIS FRIENDSHIP?
The popular show released a preview of what’s to come during Game 4 of the World Series letting us know, without question, all of last year’s judges: Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson, and Jennifer Lopez will be returning. Along with debonair host with the most, Ryan Seacrest!
Unlike the cantankerous behavior of former judging panels these judges are the best of friends on camera. “They’re like my brothers and they drive me crazy like brothers, too,” Jennifer described of Steven and Randy. “But we love each other, which is why we’ve become like a family.” Well, as family I wish somebody would talk to Jennifer about her on-set wardrobe! It was a standout last season – and not in a good way.
And since it’s another season without Simon Cowell to be the blunt voice of reason, Jennifer is assuring us this year the judges are “a little tougher on everybody.” Oooohh… good! No more constant praise – we want to see some snark!
Jennifer tells PEOPLE that being too nice wasn’t necessarily the way to go. “Because of last season and the standard that we set, it’s easy to go, ‘Is he as good as even our top 24 from last year?’ ” I guess Jenny has to earn that reported $20M she is getting paid to sit on the judges panel this season.
However, she is positive the talent pool is better than ever with many amazing voices to wow both the judges and the fans alike! “It’s not like you find people just like that, but the ones that we found, we know are very special,” she declared.
The preview clip is below!

ARE YOU EXCITED FOR SEASON 11 OF AMERICAN IDOL? DO YOU THINK THE JUDGES SHOULD BE A LITTLE HARDER ON THE PERFORMERS OR DO YOU PREFER A GENTLER APPROACH?
It was Halloween night on Dancing With The Stars but nothing too scary happened as the stars put on their best performances this season!
The stakes were high Monday night as each of the six contestants had to perform two dances each — one with their professional partners and a team dance with two other couples. The team-dance score was then applied to each couple in the group.
Coming in first place for the 5th time this season wasRicki Lake despite a rib injury. Ricki received a score of 27 for her paso doble with partner Derek Hough, before going on to perform another Paso Doble dance with her group. The group included Ricki, Rob Kardashian and Hope Solo. ‘Team Paso’ received a score of 26!
The biggest surprise of the night was Rob Kardashian, who gave his best performance of the season the same day his big sis Kim Kardashian filed for divorce. Rob received a good score of 25 for his sizzling tango to the “Addams Family” theme song with partner Cheryl Burke. “Rob, your best dance so far,” said judge Carrie Ann Inaba. Backstage, Rob spoke out about Kimmie’s divorce, stating: “We’re here to support her, whatever she does.”
Landing in last place was news anchor Nancy Grace. Nancy earned an okay score of 21 for her lackluster jive. “This wasn’t a good dance for you,” said judge Len Goodman. “It was a disappointment for me.” Nancy earned another 23 points for her group dance with war veteranJ.R. Martinezand actor David Arquette.
Below are the full scores from last night including the solo dance and group dance:
Below more Teresa and Silex, Bethenny Frankel in a Hello Kitty costume! Kyle Richards is a sexy cop, Camille Grammer is a pirate, Kim Kardashian (before filing for divorce) dresses up solo as Poison Ivy, plus Melissa Gorga, Snooki, Scott Disick, JWoww, Heidi Klum, Holly Madison & more!

“Ken stabbed me in the back and Lisa twisted the knife, but they didn’t kill me,” he laments. “It was a rough year, but I’ve landed on my feet.” And things are going well for the former moocher – he now has a job he loves, his own place, and a tell-all memoir in the works.
I wonder if that tell-all will include tidbits about the Vanderpump-Todd family? After all during the Season 1 reunion, Lisa revealed they were forced to get the police involved following Cedric’s ejection from their mansion and Kyle Richards let it slip that the couple filed a restraining order against Cedric!
Well, restraining order or not, Cedric is not hesitating to speak out on the couple who housed him and treated him as one of their family and Cedric insists that Lisa was buddy-buddy with the tabloid media and gave them negative stories about him and other cast members! “There’s no question about it. I’ve known Lisa has Us Weekly on speed dial since she sold out my relationship with Lance Bass,” Cedric declares. Um… what relationship with Lance Bass – did I miss something?
He also claims that Lisa is “absolutely” the person who fed the media information about Taylor’s marital issues, which is a storyline included in this season!
Cedric is also responding to friend Brandi Glanville‘s accusations that Kim Richards is an addict! “Anyone watching this season knows drinking is the least of her problems,” Cedric asserts. “I hope and pray she gets the help she so desperately needs.”
Well, Lisa has no comment – yet – about Cedric’s latest claims! But he will definitely be making an appearance later this season!
In other RHOBH news, unofficial Housewives Brandi and Dana Wilkey are giving their two cents on what it was like participating in a reality show!
As for adapting to life on TV, Brandi to confesses to the Huffington Post there were certainly some “low points” for all the cast members through the course of the show and she faults a lot of the erratic and unflattering behavior to long hours of filming mixed with lots of alcohol and little food!
Brandi also spoke out about LeAnn Rimes, the woman who first stole her husband and is now stealing her style! Brandi calls the alleged imitations “irritating.”
Since dating and subsequently marrying Eddie Cibiran, LeAnn has undergone a drastic weight loss, gotten breast implants, and started mimicking some of Brandi’s Twitter pics with those of her own (I’m sure you all remember the identical bikini poses!). LeAnn has even faced criticism for her weightloss from E! host Giuliana Rancic!
Well Brandi, who definitely isn’t one to hold her tongue, feels that LeAnne should give it up as being Brandi certainly wasn’t enough to sustain her marriage! “It obviously didn’t keep my ex-husband with me,” Brandi explains. “It didn’t work.”
“Oh, it’s irritating, yeah,” Brandi reveals. “[But] the kids love her. I’m happy that they love her,” she relents, taking the high road and admitting LeAnn is a good step-mom.
Dana also talked about how friend and co-star Taylor Armstrong is coping in response to the recent tragedy in her life. Dana admits: “She’s rebuilding. [She] will never be the same person again.”
She also confronts the rumor that Taylor may be dating Most Eligible Dallas star Matt Nordgren after numerous reports have spotted them together. “They’re just ‘silly stories,’” Dana insists!
A new episode of RHOBH airs tonight! The ninth episode titled ‘Otherwise Engaged’ Mohammed throws Pandora an over the top circus-themed engagement party, featuring camels, circus performers and snakes. But no Kim! Kim is a no-show since she is hiding her boyfriend, who according to IMDB, she has been dating for two-years! And Kyle has a tense dinner with Taylor and Russell who threaten legal action against Lisa for supposedly planting stories about them in the tabloids!
Hours after Kim Kardashianfiled for divorce, TMZ is reporting her soon to be ex-hubby Kris Humphries found out about it this morning… the same time everyone else did. In fact other media outlets are reporting a “blindsided” Kris also found out the same way everyone else did… by reading TMZ. Wowzers.
Sources close to Kris, 26, reveal he did NOT want a divorce and was desperately trying to save his marriage to Kim, 31. Kris, who’s religious, is reportedly telling friends he and Kim discussed the possibility of divorce, but he believed they could work things out.
Kris is insisting he never cheated and is described as being “bummed” over the divorce filing. Once again, he did not find out about the divorce until this morning through TMZ.
As for the reasons for their divorce, TMZ is reporting the two simply couldn’t agree on their future together, mainly where they would be residing as husband and wife. Apparently Kris really wanted Kim to move to Minnesota with him and believed Kim was on board with the plan…. except she wasn’t. (Err isn’t this something you discuss, you know, BEFORE spending millions on a lavish wedding???).
Sources reveal Kim, who’s from L.A., wanted to remain close to her family. She also felt that staying put in Los Angeles was best for her “career.”
As for the million dollar question — why didn’t they discuss this before tying the knot? — sources tell TMZ the Keeping Up With The Kardashian stars got carried away in all the wedding hoopla and simply thought they would figure things out after the wedding.
The same sources also claim the split is amicable, citing Kris and Kimmie simply realized they were “not a long-term fit” and not a moment too soon folks! After all, they only raked in a mere $17 million from the wedding extravaganza! Something however tells us things will get nasty if the reports of Kris not finding out about the divorce until this morning are true.
As for Kimmie, she released the following statement moments ago: “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.”
Moments after Kim released her statement, Kris released his statement: “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce … I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”
Unfortunately for Kimmie, this actually marks her second divorce. See Kim eloped with Damon Thomas back in January 2000, much to her parents dismay. She was 19 at the time, and Damon was 29. Kim has alleged Damon physically abused her during their marriage. Damon filed for divorce in 2003.
And to all the legal experts out there, wouldn’t it make for sense for Kimmie to annul the marriage rather than file for divorce? But then again, an annulment doesn’t carry the same media sensation as a Divorce! And I ask once again, what happened to trying to work things out? You know, therapy, counseling, etc. So much for the so called ‘sanctity of marriage.’
I do believe this latest stunt will mark the beginning of the end for the Kardashians. The public doesn’t like to be made a fool out of, and quite frankly, pocketing $17 million from a wedding that only lasted 72 days is doing just that. Paris Hilton faded away following her over exposure from going to jail for a DUI. Heidi and Spencer faded away following their over exposure from a fake divorce and an even faker sex tape. Kimmie will suffer the same fate following the over exposure from not only her fake wedding but also her quickie divorce. I predict there will be A TON of public backlash, both from the media and the public. And once the media starts turning on you… that usually marks the end of your career. I don’t think she will recover from this.
Interestingly, Psychotherapist, Relationship Expert, and HLN contributor Stacy Kaiser revealed five reasons she wasn’t surprised Kim’s marriage failed based on what she saw on the E! wedding special. Stacy revealed the five reasons below via her Twitter page –
#1 Kim listened to her mother over her man. You need to make your husband a priority.
#2 Kris was already trying to punish her by growing a mustache and hanging with friends.
#3 Her sisters both didn’t support the relationship- close family discord hurts marriage.
#4 Kim and Kris both showed lack of respect to each other – Respect is part of foundation.
#5 Newlyweds need time to connect. Kim’s too busy working & promoting instead of wife-ing.
All very valid points. And a look at Kimmie’s twitter page shows the she made her last tweet this morning when she wrote: “Our store #KardashianKhaos is opening tomorrow at 9am at @TheMirageLV We are so excited!! Kardashian Khaos has arrived!” She wrote that knowing she was filing for divorce today and knowing pretty much everyone would be visiting her twitter page to see her response. Let that sink in for a minute…
