I wasn’t going to watch, but God help me I did. The MTV VMAs were a freak show of a mess tonight. Terrible fashion, weed smoking overkill, and more of Miley Cyrus’s freaking boobs than we ever care to see again. And seriously, Kim Kardashian, it’s time to rehire that stylist you fired. Just say no to Kanye making your maternity fashion choices for you.
I’m still reeling over what the hell I just watched. Kanye West was presented with the Video Vanguard award and babbled in the most awkward speech that never seemed to end. In one breath he talked about setting a good example for daughter North, then admitted to smoking pot earlier in the night, and then at the very end he announced he’s running for President in 2020. Oh the campaign fashions Kanye is already planning for Kim.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
In the spirit of pretending to abhor the limelight, however, Kim and Kanye have finally brought the scoundrel to justice who initially (after signing a confidentiality agreement) leaked Kanye’s proposal to the internet via MixBit. Chad Hurley, co-founder and former CEO of YouTube who went on to found MixBit, has been ordered to pay Kimye $440,000 in the settlement.
What’s that sound I’m hearing? Oh! It’s the entire Kardashianempire’s heads simultaneously exploding. News broke today of MTV nearing the end of contracts to produce a new reality series with Amber Rose and Blac Chyna, sworn (social media) enemies of most of the Kardashian – and Jenner – women. I picture Kim, Khloe, and Kylie smearing war paint under their eyes at this very moment, armed only with selfie sticks.
Amber Rose skyrocketed to stardom for her high profile romances with rapper Wiz Khalifa and Kanye West. West notoriously dogged Rose after their relationship was over, spilling in a radio interview that “It’s very hard for a woman to want to be with someone that’s with Amber Rose… I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim.” Rose has also been very outspoken about Kylie Jenner’s questionable relationship with rapper Tyga, who he left his baby mama (and Rose’s friend) Blac Chyna for. Rose stated in a Feb. 2015 interview, “[Tyga] should be ashamed of himself. For sure. He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a 16-year-old who just turned 17.” (Kylie is now 18.) Big sister Khloe got into it on social media with Rose after her statement.
Reality stars were out and about again this week, attending events and running errands from coast to coast. Above: Former Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna Krupapromotes the adoption of dogs for Polish TV station TVN.
Ramona Singer and Andy Cohen were spotted in NYC leaving the studio after Tuesday night’s episode of WWHL. In another part of NY, Kristen and Josh Taekman attended the All Star Code’s second annual summer benefit in East Hampton. The event raised more than $600,000 for the tech education non-profit.
Kris Jenner, her boyfriend Corey Gamble, and her family went to the Pantages theater together, along with the newly single Kourtney Kardashian. The also-single Scott Disick was in Vegas to make an appearance in Vegas.

Khloe Kardashian has always been the most outspoken of the Kardashian siblings. But is she taking it too far this time? In a new interview and photo spread for Complex magazine, Khloe talks her divorce from Lamar Odom, sisterhood, Kimye, Kris Jenner‘s sexytimes, Caitlyn’s new life, and more!
Posing in a collection of scandalous lingerie and swimsuits, Khloe has nothing to hide – literally. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, who still lives with reclusive brother Rob, describes herself as a lion and says of her family “These are my cubs.” Khloe swears she’ll do anything to defend them, from twitter fights with Kanye West‘s ex to publicly defending their kontroversial choices. “Don’t f–k with my cubs ’cause I will rip your head off,” she warns in the opening quote of the interview. Indeed.
Early in her second pregnancy, Kim Kardashian said, “I secretly loved the rumors I was faking my pregnancy bc I was so skinny!” but now that her pregnancy pounds are growing, she’s putting those rumors to rest. “LOL,” she tweeted, “Well can’t hide it now! 5 month (20weeks) and 20lbs up.”
Hubby Kanye West and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star are expecting their baby boy in December of this year, although Kim was a bit off with the due date before her last check up. “Went to the Dr today for a check up, guess I was off on my 20 week mark by a week or two… But not the 20 lbs LOL,” she tweeted this weekend. But the photo above, posted July 20 on Kim’s twitter, doesn’t reveal a noticeable bump in the baby department yet (unless it was taken months before posting). Hmmm…Spanx, anyone?
A very wise woman once told me never to believe any Kardashian news that surfaces when the family is filming yet another season, and she couldn’t have been more correct! The family certainly knows how to stay in the limelight with a constant stream of well-timed drama. Not a day goes by that we aren’t treated to giant revelations, inappropriate Instagrams, pregnancy announcements, and break-up rumors.
The Keeping up with the Kardashians media circus is often carried out by random sources and unnamed family insiders, but we all know that Kris Jenner is the true ringmaster. Caitlyn Jenner news is subsiding and the hype about Kimand Kanye giving North a baby brother is so last week, so what should we focus on now? I know! Let’s dish on Kourtney kicking the always douchey Lord Disick to the curb yet again. The couple has been together for nine years and just recently welcomed their third child, but Scott’s out-of-control partying and obnoxious behavior are often front and center on KUWTK and its slew of spin-offs. We’ve seen the cycle practically every season…Scott constantly boozes to the point where his habits become a legitimate concern, Kourtney threatens to leave him, Scott has a break down that involves hitting rock bottom (usually smashing something in the process), Scott seeks treatment, Kourtney takes him back with a laundry list of ultimatums, and boom, they have another kid. And so it begins…again.
