I'm thinking about using my legal and blogging backgrounds to start a special kind of celebrity-inspired law school. Contracts, torts, even civil procedure could be worlds more exciting if you're studying cases based in tabloid craziness…and goodness knows there are enough celebrity legal spats to provide copious amounts of study materials. I specifically remember studying a case in my wills and trusts class which involved a troubled stripper turned Guess model as she vied for her much older husband's estate after his passing. Ring any bells? I'd even invite Harvey Weinstein to be a guest lecturer.
Of course, all 1Ls would have to takeKardashian Law. Think about it…the class could cover everything from employment to divorce to defamation. Kris Humphries could teach part of the course in his off-season! Speaking of Kris, we've got some news on his divorce proceedings from Kim. Also, if you recall, Kris Jenner recently filed a lawsuit against her ex husband's widow Ellen Kardashian for copyright infringement, claiming that Ellen sold portions of Robert Kardashian, Sr.'s private journals which were willed exclusively to his children. This family is a plethora of legal insanity, and I have more to share with you after the jump!
Oh goodness. Something tells me that Kim Kardashian isn't going to be purchasing Ray J's newest sings on iTunes. The "rapper" is more famous for his personal life than any music he's ever made…although using the term "famous" may be a bit of a stretch. If you recall, Ray J was Kimmie's co-star in the sex video that many attribute to starting her career in famewhoring. Even though the pair broke up years ago, Ray J is apparently using his relationship with Kim to generate some buzz for his new song "I Hit It First." Classy title!
In fact, many are speculating that the cover art for the single is a blurry picture of a bikini clad Kim, and if that isn't fabulous enough, the "leaked" lyrics are a hoot. While there's a chance the rhymes may be fake, they are absolutely brilliant because they're so awesomely bad.
Each week we get a flood of emails from fans who find editing flaws on the latest season of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami. So, in honor of their season finale tonight, we gathered up some of the emails that decried "fakery!" and thought we'd share them with you.
Let's dish, shall we?
On last week's episode "Babies, Lies, and Alibis Part One", we had OODLES of emails about a few scenes that were so botched, it was hilarious! When Kim decides to tag along with the private investigator while he tails Scott, there's a clothing change en route. Scott leaves the house in a long sleeved gray and blue striped shirt and when they show him arriving at a building, he gets out of the car in shorts and a T-shirt. Scott must be quite a ninja, changing clothes while driving (and in a convertible, no less!).
I am not sure if I know any family that loves famewhoring and lawsuits more than those krazy Kardashians. I think they'd literally shrivel up if they weren't constantly surrounded by paparazzi and tabloid fodder and legal pleadings and vapidness. In the divorce that has drawn out longer than the actual marriage, Kris Humphries will finally have his day in court. However, Kim Kardashian won't be there…she's got perfume to promote, y'all! Priorities. Duh.
In other Kardashian/Jenner news, the family that fames together files claims together (sorry, that was bad). Remember when Robert Kardashian's widow sold his diary? Yeah, that's coming back to bite her in the arse.
Being a member of the the famous Jenner-Kardashian family may have its perks, but Kendall Jenner shares that the fame has its downside, too. She dishes with the new issue of Cosmopolitan about privacy and her future plans.
The Keeping up with the Kardashians star says that the toughest part for her is not getting a chance to experience the teen years in a normal way. “The show brought us everything we have, and I realize that, but sometimes I just want to be left alone and be a normal kid for like five minutes. That’s tough when the paparazzi are chasing you.”
For once some Kardashian news I actually feel sad reporting on!
Earlier this week ESPN released a report investigating popular athletes' charities and how they help those in need. According to their findings Lamar Odom's charity Cathy's Kids, started in 2004 after his mom passed away from cancer, has given approximately $0 (yes ZERO) dollars to cancer causes despite raising an estimated millions!
ESPN "found after conducting interviews and examining documents: NBA forward Lamar Odom's charity that promised money for cancer research has not given a dime in grant money to any cancer entity in its eight-year history."
