Even worse for the famewhores Kardashian clan, the movement against them is gaining steam. “In a grass roots effort, we have collected [thousands of] signatures for a petition asking E! Entertainment to remove the Kardashian suite of shows from their programming,” petition organizer Cyndy Snider said in a statement to Yahoo News. “We feel that these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption.”
The more popular petition via GoPetition.com now has over 80,000 signatures (it had 55,000 this morning) — a vast increase from the 15,000 it had yesterday. It is not just an organized effort to get the Kardashian/Jenner clan off television screens, but also to put an end to their empire which includes clothes, perfume and nail polish bottles.
“While some may have begun watching the spectacle as mindless entertainment or as a sort of ‘reality satire,’ it is a sad truth that many young people are looking up to this family and are modeling their appearance and behavior after them,” Cyndy continued. “I’ll remind you here that the Kardashian family fame largely started with a ‘leaked’ sex tape.” Preach sister!
Cyndy adds that whether the petition works or not, she will continue to circulate it on the World Wide Web. “There is no particular religious or political platform behind our disgust; we are just finally fed up,” she added.
Meanwhile, a new report by the NY Post is stating Kimmie is planning to take some time away from the public (haven’t we heard this before???). Apparently, Kimmie really, really wants the public to know she is still mourning the end of her marriage despite posting kissy face photos on her blog this week!
The Post reports Kim is “keeping an uncharacteristically low profile” and has told her team to cancel all promotional obligations until her New Year’s Eve gig in which she’ll host a party at TAO Las Vegas. Kim has also canceled a ShoeDazzle tour in the UK, two book tours and an appearance at Z100’s Dec. 9 Jingle Ball. Her sisters Khloe and Kourtney will be forced to promote the novel they penned with Kim, titled “Dollhouse” without her this week in NYC.
Unfortunately for Kim, I believe her career is done whether she takes time away from the public or not. Like I stated weeks ago, once the media starts to turn on you the end of your “career” is near. It happened to Paris Hilton, it happened to Heidiand Spencer, and now it’s happening to Kim Kardashian. The Kardashians (mostly Kim and pimpmomager Kris Jenner) definitely got too comfortable and definitely too arrogant with their fame. Must say they didn’t think this latest stunt all the way through. They overestimated how much the public really loved them, when in fact most of the public were simply only tolerating them. It appears the talentless family have now worn out their welcome.
You, however, have to love the irony that Kim (who made them famous with her sex tape) is the same one ending their reign of A-list fame with her quickie divorce.

TELL US – HAVE YOU SIGNED THE PETITION? DO YOU WELCOME THE DEMISE OF THE KARDASHIANS AWAY FROM THE PUBLIC? DO YOU BELIEVE KIM WILL GO INTO HIDING?
For starters, Kim’s three dress changes totaled $92,000, though Kim has stated her main wedding dress, in the above picture, was used. The $58,000 pre-owned, handmade Baracci gown made of Duchess satin was also embellished with Swarovski crystals, pearls and embroidered lace.
“We spared no expense, you only do this once,” Kim, who’s on her second marriage, told Life & Style. “This is it for me. It’s very expensive but we’re in a position where we’re able to do that and I’m thankful for that.”
Kim, 33, and Kroy, 26, also spent $14,000 on their 11-layered cake! More photos from Kim’s wedding are below!
In other Kim news, Bravo has finally confirmed today that she does indeed have her own spinoff show coming soon! The title? The ever so clever ‘Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding.’ The network promises the docu-series will chronicle Kim’s extravagant wedding.
The press release reads: “Each thirty minute episode will follow the adventures of Kim preparing for her wedding on the lucky date of 11/11/11. With less than 2 months to plan, she enlists celebrity event planner Colin Cowie to help design a dream wedding in her brand new multi-million dollar home. The pressure is on as Kim rushes to find a dress, lose remaining baby weight and cosmetically enhance trouble spots. With the date quickly approaching, problems mount– her invitation is leaked to the press and her mother refuses to attend the wedding. Still, Kim is determined to marry Kroy and won’t let anything ruin her perfect day.”
As for Kim, she reveals she is excited about the new show. “I am so excited to give an up close and personal look at the next chapter in my life,” Kim said. “My life has turned into a true Cinderella story and to watch the pieces unfold is going to be great! I can’t wait to share with all of you!”
“Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding” is expected to premiere on Bravo in 2012.

Easy come, Easy go! It seems like ever since Bethenny Frankel started rolling in the millions the lawsuits started coming at warp speed! In this latest lawsuit drama, the owner of a home that was used during the filming of Bethenny Ever After is suing the show and the network for illegally using his house!
For all of you fans (and some of you non-fans) who watched last season of BEA you’ll remember Bethenny’s fabulous Malibu beach house where Team Frankel celebrated Christmas. Well the owner of that house, Bijan Shahmoradi, has filed a lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court claiming he did not authorize the house to be used for the taping of a show.
Apparently it all started when Bijan leased the 19936 Pacific Coast Highway property for a whopping $13,000-per- month, to “two people” who then “Illegally subleased” the home to NBC Universal (NBC owns Bravo) for the purposes of filming Bethenny Ever After! And when you film on location you must have permission from the property owner(s) if the site is private property. A photo of the house is below.
Bijan is now suing the tenant leaseholders for “allegedly violating their lease agreement” and also suing NBC Universal and Shed Media — the company that producers BEA and all the Housewives franchises. Mr. Shahmoradi claims that by showing the multi-million dollar property on television, it “invaded his privacy by exposing the mansion’s interior to millions of people across the world,” as he believes he has the right to keep his property out of the public eye.
In order to remedy the invasion of privacy he is seeking $25,000 in damages, plus “punitive damages and an injunction.” The injunction being that Bijan wants NBC to bar any further airings of Bethenny Ever After shows that feature his home! Yikes.
The question is: How exactly did a company as large as NBC Universal find themselves in trouble for what seems like a rookie mistake? According to The Hollywood Reporter it happens when the “producers sign a lease to use the property without sorting the tenant from the landlord.”
The lawsuit is claiming that NBC and Shed Media demonstrated “reckless disregard” by failing to practice due diligence to “inquire about the true owner of the property and publicly publishing the interior of the home without consent.” So basically they took the tenants’ word for it that it was their property and they had permission to use it however they saw fit!
As for how Bethenny is involved in this lawsuit — she is one of the producers of her own show! The suit does not implicate her or her wallet directly, but as a producer she is affiliated with the parties named in the suit. Of course, if Bijan is successful in blocking further airing of episodes featuring his home, Bethenny could possibly suffer financially as well. Who knows!

Unless you were too busy watching Brandon Hantz Crazy Pants’ outbursts at tribal council, you probably noticed a few of the castaways from this season’s Survivor getting a tad friendly with one another. I’m sure it gets lonely in the jungle. Two members of Savaii’s former Team Pretty, Whitney Duncan, 27, and Keith Tollefson, 26, had a total spark for each other during their time in the South Pacific. And why shouldn’t they? They’re both young, fun, good-looking, and single. Wait, is one of them married?
Keith is the laid-back water treatment technician from San Diego, while country crooner Whitney hails from Tennessee and made it to the top five of the Nashville Star singing competition. Both came to Survivor single and ready to mingle, according to their bios, and the pair was quickly joined at the hip. However, one additional player has come out of the woodwork… Whitney’s husband, Donny Fallgatter.
While the story of Whitney and Donny’s relationship is different than most, the couple was definitely married when she appeared on the show. They married on August 10, 2010 after two months of dating. However, they never shared this information with family and friends or Survivor producers. Whitney would often travel with fellow musician Donny’s band, and in May of this year, before Whitney left to film Survivor, the pair announced their engagement. Um…
A source tells People.com, “They were good together, and they looked good together. They both fell hard.” The insider continues, “Donny was totally faithful while she was gone. He even went to help out at her parents’ house in West Tennessee a couple times.”
After filming of Survivor concluded, but before the castaways were sent home, Whitney called her husband, who later admitted to a friend that things sounded a bit off. The source says, “He said she sounded weird, like something was up, and not like she was looking forward to seeing him.” Indeed, in a later phone call, Whitney admitted that she had fallen hard for her tribe mate, Keith. The friend recalls, “Donny sent me a text that said, ‘Whitney got into a Survivor relationship.’ I called him and he was really upset so I went over to his place.”
At that point Donny revealed the couple’s secret to the source. “That’s when he told me that she wasn’t his fiancé, but his wife, that they had gotten married the summer before. I was totally shocked.” While the new Survivor sweeties have been spotted around Nashville, Donny reportedly went home to North Dakota so that Whitney could move out of his home.
Not surprisingly, Whitney and Donny have filed for divorce, which was heard and granted last week on November 8th. As soon as the judge who heard their petition signs the paperwork, the divorce will be final leaving Whitney free to pursue other endeavors…wink, wink.
Not to be one-upped by Donny’s People.com source, a Whitney insider has been talking to UsWeekly, stating that no infidelity occurred. “Whitney and Keith did not expect to fall in love on the show but they did. She is divorced and never lied to her ex about falling for Keith. She told him the day she returned from Survivor,” asserts the source.
The insider continues, “Whitney and her family have had a very trying year.” The source is of course referring to the tragic kidnapping of Whitney’s twenty-year-old cousin Holly Bobo, adding, “I think learning about her cousin being abducted the same day she found out she would be on Survivor gave her a new perspective on life and love and made her realize that life is too short to be unhappy.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF WHITNEY’S SECRET MARRIAGE? DO YOU THINK HER SURVIVOR LOVE WITH KEITH WILL OUTPLAY OUTWIT OUTLAST?
It’s been what seems like a very long time coming, but finally it’s here…the Dancing With the Stars’ Semi-Finalist Results show. No surprise that Ricki Lake is on top of the leader board, but it was sad to see an ankle injury force J.R. Martinez into third due to less than his normally stellar performances.
The tongues are still wagging about Rob Kardashian’s booty shaking samba that garnered Kimmie’s bro his first ten of the season. Not surprisingly, it’s the judge’s encore dance of the evening and Rob and partner Cheryl Burke are highlighted. The pair even won first place in the cha-cha relay. First on the chopping block, it is revealed that Rob will be dancing in the finals.
Cobra Starship performs with Sabi. I had no idea they sang this song… where have I been? Next up, Hope Solo and Maks Chmerkovskiy’s Monday night is revisited. As you recall, Maks had yet another tiny tiff with judge Carrie Ann Inaba, and Hope’s attitude was less than sportsmanlike… just as it is when it’s revealed she is in jeopardy. Did she just fist pump?
Ricki Lake’s amazing Monday night is remembered with Ricki scoring even more tens. J.R. slipped from last week due to a noticeable ankle injury, gaining scathing commentary from Len Goodman before being highly praised for his second dance despite a botched lift.
Noooo! J.R. is sent to the bottom two while Ricki waltzes into the finals. Poor J.R. looks hopeful, gracious,and nervous, while Hope’s smile looks like she’s super close to killing someone. She’s eliminated, and I will say that she exits with class. Maks apologizes for not being a better partner for her, and she reminds us that he’s a producer of the show. Okey doke.
Fast forward to today and UsWeekly is reporting Hope acted like a sore loser backstage. According to the mag, Hope, 30, was sour backstage and refused to do press following her elimination! Wowzers.
While Hope’s fellow DWTS contestants spoke to media outlets backstage, Hope gave only one TV interview, refused all other press opportunities and burst into tears.
Even worse, in a video recap of Monday’s performances, Hope complained about her scores: “Sevens? The same thing I got in week one. Kiss my booty,” she said. Hope and partner Maks were also heard swearing at the judges while they waited for their second set of scores: “F— ‘em,” they said with Hope refusing to look at the judge’s table.
Perhaps her partner’s bad attitude has been rubbing off on her?
IS HOPE A SORE LOSER? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MAKS’ CONTINUED AGGRESSIVENESS TOWARDS THE JUDGES? WHO DO YOU WANT TO WIN THE MIRROR BALL TROPHY?
