It seems Kim Kardashiancontinues 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.

Phaedra On Joining The Show – “At the time, I really didn’t know, because it wasn’t always well-spoken of in Atlanta to be very honest with you,” said Phaedra. “I’ve done reality TV a few times, so I’m pretty familiar with it. At the end of the day I understand that what makes for good TV are sensational events and drama and cattiness and some of this other foolishness sometimes. And that’s just part of the madness of TV, and particularly reality TV.”
On Her Husband Apollo - “At the end of the day, you have to realize I married him,” Phaedra said. “He doesn’t have to sleep with anyone except for me. No one has to be bothered with him except for me. So, why is it anyone else’s concern?”
A preview of tonight’s episode is below -
