Am I the only one who feels that Ryan Seacrest is on well on his way to world domination? Like it or not, the guy has been exceeding (a million-fold) his own goals…he started out as his high school’s version of David Silver (dun nun nun nah, dun nun nun nah chhh-chhh!), parlayed that into a successful radio show, became the emcee that lasted (what was that other guy’s name?) on American Idol, and he (unfortunately?) is responsible–with Kris Jenner, of course–for katapulting the Kardshian klan post Kim’s sex tape. The man has skills.
Now, not only is he responsible for the KUWTK uber-phenomenon (still not sure I’m happy about that…), Ryan is poised to bring us even more E! drama and ratings as a producer on the highly anticipated and much hyped docu-series about former Olympian Bruce Jenner in which the transgender reality star transitions into her new life as Caitlyn. I Am Cait is set to premiere later this summer.
It’s hot photo Friday! Above: Sonja Morgan performed a caburlesque act (as Marilyn Monroe) for Watch What Happens Live producer Anthony Lella’s 30th birthday that was attended by Andy Cohen at SONO in Greenwich Village.
Also spotted: Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian stopping by the DASH store. And NeNe Leakes out and about in NYC. NeNe was in town to co-host Live with Kelly and Michael today and was spotted filming segments throughout the week (not so “Live”). She revealed on the show this morning that she’s doing a 30 day cleanse that includes no alcohol, bread and more.
Kim Kardashian of the future is coming to us. No, this isn’t a sci-fi Star Trek version of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, although Kim’s outfits often resemble it. In order to help herself grow and learn, Kim has publicly (of course) written a letter to her future self about what she hopes to have accomplished and learned.
Using her special marbleized computer (no doubt created from marble salvaged from abandoned guests’ seats at her wedding), in a letter written for Glamour, Kim addresses her 2025, 44-year-old self. Dear Kim, are you there, it’s me Kim. OMG – you’re like OLD now.
Predictably, Kim’s first thought is about her body and appearance. Seriously. It’s the second sentence after Dear Kim… “When it comes to how you feel about your body, remember to be kind to yourself and enjoy how you look now, because you’re not getting any younger,” Kim instructs future Kim, presumably only more vain and more shallow.
Over on the East Coast: Bravo reality stars Arzo Anwar (Blood, Sweat and Heels) and Dr. Tabasum Mir (The Singles Project) have their hand prints immortalized at Buca di Beppo restaurant in Times Square, NYC. RHONY star Ramona Singer was photographed at the Hamptons Magazine Cover Party held at Barn & Vine in Bridgehampton.
Kim Kardashian rented out the Staples Center, the home of the Los Angeles Lakers, for Kanye West‘s 38th birthday. The surprise cost her $110,000.
An insider told E! News, “Kim rented out the Staples Center so Kanye and his boys could play an NBA-style game with real refs and Laker girls. John Sally is the announcer. Houston Rockets player James Harden and rapper 2 Chainz are the coaches. John Legend sang the national anthem.” And the cherry on top of the star-studded sundae, Kim invited Justin Bieber, too. #NowItsAParty
First Bruce Jenner got sued, now Caitlyn Jenner is being sued as well. The reality star has been hit with another lawsuit related to the fatal car accident she was involved in on the Pacific Coast Highway back in February.
Here’s a little Friday funny for ya! Tim Gunn hung out and chatted with Us weekly about Kim Kardashian’s selfie-obsessed book “Selfish.” Needless to say, Tim is not a big fan of the reality star’s vapid selfie fixation.
In the video below Tim shares that he’s quickly losing IQ points with every tacky turn of the page. Take a look – it’ll be the best two minutes of your Friday afternoon, I promise.
