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.
Kimshared what she learned from her secret marriage to Damon Thomas at age 20, “I was very happy at home learning how to cook and clean and keep a house. I knew that was where I wanted to end up.” So when is Kim going home and staying there? And can we have her internet access revoked??
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
