Keeping up with the Kardashians


Remember a time when everything Kimmie Kardashian and Ko. touched turned to gold? Everything from sex tapes to magazine covers to products no one much wanted? Well, it seems, my friends, that time has officially ended. The Kardashian family, kontrolled by pimpmomager Kris Jenner, believed they were untouchable, but one obnoxious scheme too many has come back to haunt them.

Back in the day, before Kim went from untouchable to The Untouchable, she filed a lawsuit against Old Navy via its parent company The Gap for supposedly using a look a-like in one of their commercials. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star apparently believes hiring a brown haired woman to be part of their ads means Old Navy is emulating her. As retribution Kim wants them to pay her an estimated $20 million because she has a patent pending on being brunette or something.

If it seems to you that Kim’s claim is baseless you’re not the only one! Fox News decided to do some investigating of their own and asked several legal professionals to give their opinion on the merit of Kim’s suit. The over-whelming consensus? None!

“I think it is a tenuous claim,” stated attorney Alonzo Wickers. “The model didn’t even strike me as being obviously a rip off of Kim, and more importantly, didn’t do anything in the ad that evokes anything I associate with Kim Kardashian.” The model, one Melissa Molinaro, is featured in the commercial singing and dancing — which we know are two things Kim has proven unsuccessful at!

Which is exactly the point — The Gap’s attorney decided to combat Kim’s claim by attempting to prove that she is “libel-proof” or has tarnished her image so much it wouldn’t even matter if people believed it was her in the ads! And not only that, but what little reputation Kim has bears no relation to the theme of the commercial because Kim is not known as a musician, dancer, etc. — but a star whose entire “talent” stems from her publicity-seeking “real” life.

“What reputation? She doesn’t have one,” admonished legal expert Joey Jackson. “Kim Kardashian makes her reputation off of pushing the envelope, playing with the public psyche, and being controversial,” Mr. Jackson explained. “She is a publicity craver and seeker, thereby making any publicity is good publicity for her.”

Jackson believes The Gap will be able to prove that while the level of publicity may be detrimental to a star with actual talents, for someone like Kim whose celebrity stems from ubiquity, it will in no way hinder her brand.

The article compares Kim’s reputation to someone like Taylor Swift’s, whose image as an upstanding person is diametrically opposite to Kim’s image as a “notorious” person whose success was never built on being liked, respected or popular, but instead built on being controversial. Um… major burn!

Additionally, experts believe the disparagement of the Kardashian image has absolutely nothing to do with the Old Navy ad and was instead caused by their own actions. Ya think? “The Kardashians’ value has gone down by about a third and that damage was not done by an Old Navy ad,” explains Mike Paul of MGP & Associates PR, a New York-based crisis management firm. “The family destroyed Kim’s reputation.”

Steven Levitt an expert in calculating celebrity Q Scores or, in other words, a metric scoring system that evaluates celebrity value in terms of public perception, claims that Kim’s score is a 62 which means she is recognized by 62% of the American public. Q Scores are used by companies to determine if a celebrity is a valuable asset to their brand — in Kim’s case, she’s not.

In order to evaluate a Q Score researchers take into consideration negative and positive associations. For instance, someone like Casey Anthony garners mainly negative associations to most Americans, while someone like Betty White is positively identified. Unfortunately for Kim, her positive Q score is a 12; the average positive score is an 18. This breaks down to mean that Kim’s negative association is 58%. So while 62% of people recognize her image, 58% of them associate that image with something negative (sex tape *ahem* sex tape).

Levitt believes this analysis (which was not conducted by The Gap’s legal team, but an unbiased, neutral party) will play into The Gap’s defense against Kim as proof that she has no reputation to maintain. “Kim’s ratings are so negative she doesn’t have anything to protect.”

“We are talking about somebody who has four and a half time more negative sentiment than positive in the eyes of the American population. What kind of reputation is that?” Levitt questioned. The Kardashian Kamp did not comment on Fox’s report.

Sadly, for the family who was once on the top of the reality TV pyramid things are going steadily from bad to worse. Days after we reported that the Kardashian’s magazine deal fell through, no thanks to Kris’ irrational demands to control all published material of managing company AMI’s publications, MTV News is confirming that the deal is definitely dead — and the piece recently published in Star magazine questioning Khloe Kardashian‘s biological father is proof the deal is finished!

A rep for the family is of course denying everything, “Kris has never had a conversation with AMI regarding this issue [of her demands]. But the allegations contained in the Star article about Khloe not being a Kardashian are completely fabricated, false and untrue. Robert Kardashian is absolutely her biological father, so of course she was upset over their story.”

Furthermore, the family’s supposed deal with Mattel to release Kardashian Barbie Dolls has also fallen through! “As popular as the Kardashian sisters are, at this point in time we are not manufacturing Barbie-branded Kardashian dolls,” a rep for Mattel revealed.

And finally, Kris Humphries, spurned husband and by-product of the Kardashian media machine, has decided to ditch the PR firm he hired when Kim was trashing his image left and right to the press. 73-days after Kris employed Anderson Group Public Relations to manage his image, the Kourtney and Kim Take New York star decided to divorce the company. Hey, that relationship lasted longer than his marriage!

TMZ reports that Kris and AGPR differed on a long-term strategy for his career and the company was disappointed after his rather disastrous appearance on Good Morning America last month. Apparently, Kris has already retained the services of another PR firm and wants to focus on his reputation as basketball player, instead of attempting to rebuild his media image in the wake of Kimpocalypse.

Reports have already come out saying Kris seeks to get the show canceled for portraying him in false light in order to salvage Kim’s image and her decision to file for divorce.

You know what something tells me Kris has already come out on top and doesn’t need to try too hard to look like the better person in this instance!

And oh yeah, Kimmie Kakes co-hosted Live With Kelly this morning, further proving to the world that she has the personality of a turtle! Apologies to all turtles around the world, but Kimmie didn’t really reveal anything new simply stating she rushed too quickly into her marriage with Kris.

Of course, Kelly Ripa — who spent the entire hour kissing Kimmie’s butt — failed to make mention of our report, which was picked up by GMA and ABC News, of Kimmie faking scenes for her show.

IS KIM’S TARNISHED IMAGE A VIABLE DEFENSE FOR THE GAP? ARE YOU SURPRISED THE DEAL WITH MATTEL FELL THROUGH? IS KRIS RIGHT TO FOCUS ON BASKETBALL AND IGNORE THE KIM-DRAMA?


Hi guys! This is RT and I just wanted to give you a quick update on things. Our Kardashian report from this weekend continues to grow, in fact, ABC News and GMA just picked it up this morning linking to our original story. In mere days, it has become one of our most popular stories ever! Also, our writer Lauren will be appearing on Inside Edition today to further disucss our Kardashian scoop! A special thanks to you all for your continued support!!! Xoxo – RT.

It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian, helmed by pimpmomager Kris Jenner, is a greedy little thing desperate for dollars above all else! New information about the depths of her money love demonstrate that Kim will stop at nothing for a few more Benjamins in the bank!

Last July, Kim filed a lawsuit against Old Navy for using Melissa Molinaro in a TV commercial. Kim claimed Melissa was a look-alike, whose appearance would confuse fans into believing Kim endorsed the company. Of course, the woman displayed actual talent in the singing department, which would quickly clear up any Kimmie-based confusion.

Kim’s suit also alleged the company intentionally tried to create that confusion and their actions “violated her rights to her name and likeness.” Yes — Kim is that delusional. Kim is hoping to squeeze an estimated $20 million dollars out of the company and take her suit to a jury-based trial. Like any jury would feel sorry for Kim!

This whole lawsuit episode was largely overshadowed by Kim’s massive wedding, which took place the following month. Many assumed the suit had been dropped since little news has been reported on it’s status, but apparently it’s still very much happening!

Lawyers for The Gap (the company which owns Old Navy) are seeking to embarrass Kim investigate Kimmie’s finances to discover her true net worth and to question Kim’s tarnished reputation, as Kim’s lawsuit alleges the commercial tarnished her good name (inserts laugh).

Among the information The Gap’s attorney, the high-powered Louis Petrich, wants to know is why BeBe, who previously had a clothing line created by harlots, decided to drop the Kardashians deal with them and more importantly what Kim’s motives are for filing the suit? I can answer that, Louis! Two words: Reggie Bush. See, Melissa was allegedly dating Reggie at the time Kim filed this completely valid suit!

Mr. Petrich expects the investigation into Kim’s assets (the kind not currently on her body) will take upto a year and he requested financial records delving into the monies earned by Sears and BeBe through their deals with the Kardashians. Petrich also wants to find out more about Kim’s “reputation as a singer and dancer.” HAHAHA!

It’s not clear what The Gap is intending to prove with the information, but The Hollywood Reporter has a few theories. One theory is that The Gap hopes to demonstrate that Kimmie Kakes is “libel-proof,” because her reputation is so appalling that no injury could cause true damage. Meaning even if fans thought it was Kim in the ads it wouldn’t do anything to harm her already besmirched reputation as a designer or a performer. If anything it might further damage Old Navy’s!

Another approach is to compare the singing and dancing abilities of the two women and point out that long-time artist Melissa, who appeared in MTV’s Making The Band 3, far surpasses Kim in ability — making confusion highly unlikely. Oh lord, can you imagine lawyers and a judge having to watch Kim’s music video in court!? I would totes tune into C-SPAN for that moment! LOL to the maximum!

The Gap seeks to prove that the lawsuit has no merit and that the commercial featuring Melissa was a small part of an overall larger campaign, so any profits earned from that specific advertisement were minimal, rendering the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s rights to financial gain “de minimis.” Or definitely not worth $20M.

Both sides expect Kim to take the stand, like she’s a credible witness. And a surprise witness may be Reggie, himself! The Gap is seeking to put Reggie on the stand in an effort to prove that Kim’s suit was filed for personal reasons and was based on his relationship with Melissa at the time the commercial aired.

Kim’s kamp has their own strategy. Apparently, her lawyers conducted a survey which prove fans were confused about who they were seeing in the commercial. Yeah to the right! Another possible plan is to involve media players to provide testimony that they believed Old Navy had ulterior motives and to get members of the public to take the stand bearing witness to the confusion argument. Something tells me this is going to get dirty and I can’t wait!

Yet another exposure into Kim’s tricky behavior is a recent discovery by Fox News’ Pop Tarts blog. Fox recently investigated celebrity charity auctions and discovered that Kimmie and fam, who regularly sell their used clothing and accessories through eBay Giving Works under the pretense of donating the profits to the Dream Foundation, are actually pocketing 90% of the monies earned!

First of all, who would put their unmentionable parts in the same place Kim once put her own? She sells a lot of used jeans — I looked. Second of all, most of the used items advertised as owned and worn by the Kardashians are not making big bucks and this family is STILL keeping almost all of the proceeds!

“Many times the public assumes that all the proceeds go to charity and not the celebrity,” Glenn Selig, President/CEO of Selig Multimedia revealed. “But that is often not the case. The public should never assume that 100 percent goes to charity.”

According to the Giving Works policy a minimum 10% of the sale must go to the charity, but the remaining 90% has no obligation. Of course, many stars end up giving the full 100% but others don’t. Others, including the Kardashians.

An insider close to the family claims the Kardashians are charitable in many ways and explains that the majority of the items sold through their eBay auctions were not gifts, but actually purchased by the family for personal use. Thus, the reason why every dollar is not going towards those in need.

“They strongly believe that every little bit counts and there have been many instances where they have privately donated the whole sum of an earning to a charity, and they would like to continue to do some of these things privately,” the insider asserts. Neither eBay nor Kim’s rep commented on the discovery.

The bigger issue for me is that once again the Kardashians are misleading fans and not disclosing the full truth about their behaviors! Also, the amount of money these auctions are earning is not substantial and they can certainly afford to donate the full proceeds. Remember, Kimmie alone is worth an estimated $35 million dollars and managed to pocket around $17 million from her sham wedding!

Speaking of dreams, Khloe Kardashian‘s dream of becoming a mommy may happen soon! “Khloe has been meeting with fertility doctors in Dallas, and Lamar [Odom] has been going with her to several appointments. It makes sense for her to have a fertility doctor in Dallas, as well as Los Angeles,” a source close to the couple reveals to RadarOnline.

“Khloe very much wants to have a baby with Lamar, and their inability to get pregnant has had its rough moments, but this has only made their relationship stronger.” And because she’s a Kardashian, whether through blood or nurture, Khloe plans to have cameras with her every step of the way capturing the drama for Khloe & Lamar.

“Khloe wants to shine a light on this very sensitive subject. Khloe has received such a warm welcome in Dallas, and she thinks that the move may actually help her get pregnant,” the insider explains. “Khloe is constantly asked when she is getting pregnant, it just made sense to let viewers know what is really going on,” the friend says.

THOUGHTS ON THE INFORMATION REGARDING KIM’S LAWSUIT? WHO DO YOU THINK WILL COME OUT ON TOP? ARE THE KARDASHIAN’S WRONG FOR POCKETING PART OF THE PROCEEDS FROM THEIR “CHARITY” AUCTIONS? WILL YOU WATCH KHLOE & LAMAR’S FERTILITY STRUGGLES?

Following his blink and you miss it 72-day marriage to Kimmie Kardashian, a new report reveals Kris Humphries is still “hurting” over the way things went down.

HollywoodLife highlights a new report from Victoria Gotti for Reality Weekly which discusses Kimmie’s ex-husband as he continues to feel like he was used.

According to Victoria Gotti’s information, Kris wants to get back at Kim for her minute marriage. A source says, “[Kris is telling] everyone that he was definitely used for publicity purposes. Kris is really beyond hurting. He’s been telling his family and friends he feels like a fool.”

The insider reveals that the Humphries are concerned about Kris’ well being. They are all hoping that he will quickly get over this pitfall and “move on with his life.” Kim, however, is enjoying the media circus comparing the duo’s short union to that of Yankee’s great Joe DiMaggio and cinema bombshell Marilyn Monroe. Apparently, Kris is on board with the comparison, as the insider says he’s referring to himself as “Joey D.”

And because they aren’t already coming at us from every conceivable angle, the sisters Kardashian are coming up with their own magazine… who wants to get a subscription? The same blog is reporting that Page Six has the dirt that the Kardashian Klan are working on a kagazine to market to the kublic.

Pimp momager Kris Jenner has leaked that her daughters are hoping to launch their own publication. Star magazine owner, American Media, Inc., is apparently offering the Kardashian klan their own magazine, the reasoning being that the divorce backlash has made them more famous.

While there is no set plan for the magazine as of yet, many outlets are speculating that it will be just another vehicle for the family “spin their own stories.” Other sources are predicting the publication will be a “print version of the Kardashian family photo-heavy blogs”.

Moving on up (Jeffersons!), and moving on to the more rational and likeable Kardashian sister, Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom have recently moved into their new Dallas home. EOnline.com has the inside scoop on the couple’s new digs.

The couple have decided to lease a two-bedroom condo at the W Dallas Victory Hotel & Residences in downtown Dallas. Khlomar are paying $7,500 a month for the property which was originally listed for sale for $1.625 million.

A local realtor, Steve Rigely from Rogers Healy and Associates, reveals, “It has floor-to-ceiling windows with a view of the city, which I think they really enjoyed.” He should know, as he did lease the property to the new Texas transplants. Among the amenities of the duo’s new space is an infinity pool, a lap pool, a concierge service, two work-out centers, an amazing spa and a restaurant helmed by Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio. Where do I sign? Will they take Monopoly money as down payment instead of actual cash?

Thankfully, the 33-story tower is right around the corner from the American Airlines Center, so Lamar can get to his basketball gig easily and without a lot of fan fair. Living mere blocks from where the Mavs play is just another perk for this upscale move. As the realtor points out, “He can just walk to work!” I’m sure he does, Steve. I’m sure he does.

See pictures of their new place below!

It’s Kardashian Time! This time the topik of the day is Khloe Kardashian — which makes it slightly more bearable. Sorry — I have a slight bias towards the most normal of the bunch. The Keeping Up With Kardashians star is talking about marriage — most specifically how much she values her husband Lamar Odom, whom she married in 2009, and why she will do anything to support him (unlike some members of her family…).

Klearly trying to distract from all of her sister Kim Kardashian‘s divorce nonsense and prove that not all of the Kardashians are maritally impaired, Khloe shares that she is gladly moving to Dallas to support her man after his trade to the Mavericks.

In a new article for Life & Style, Khloe explains what makes her marriage work. “Many people have judged me, but I don’t care how it looks to someone else,” Khloe dished on their unconventional decision to get married a month after meeting at a party. “We planned our wedding in nine days. It’s not what a lot of people consider ideal, but for us, it was perfect. I really wouldn’t have done it any other way.”

The couple has worked hard to make their relationship successful and that includes putting petty differences aside, supporting each others’ goals and Lamar maintaining a relationship with his very involved mother-in-law Kris Jenner. He reportedly sends KRIS flowers on he and Khloe’s wedding anniversary. Weird, but ok.

Khloe believes the secret to her marital success is making her husband her no. 1 priority. You mean, it’s not her “career”? In addition to that, Khloe and Lamar have decided not to go more than a week without seeing each other. And that included her immediately packing up and moving to Dallas six-days after Lamar’s NBA trade. “I’ve never lived anywhere else but LA, but I’m willing to make that adjustment for my family.” Wow — could she be anymore different from Kimmie? “I have the luxury to have my work follow me,” Khloe shares.

Khloe even missed out on Mason‘s second birthday and spending holidays with her family to support Lamar courtside in her new home state. The couple reportedly signed a $7,500 a month lease on a luxury two-bedroom condo in Dallas that Khloe quickly decorated in time for Christmas. Luckily for all of us the film crew for the couple’s reality show Khloe & Lamar was able to capture ever minute of the hectic move! Thank goodness!

Additionally, Lamar is definitely appreciative of his wife’s support. “Sometimes there’s so much going on from the outside looking in people don’t really understand that there is a lot of normalcy there, too,” he explains. And despite all the changes, Khloe is still happily in love. “We are completely content,” she shares. “And that’s the best feeling in the world.”

While everything is happy in Khloe-land the reality star is about to get Punk’d by Miley Cyrus and Kelly Osborne! The popular MTV show produced by Ashton Kutcher returns this March and Khloe will be the unsuspecting victim of a prank.

In a just released sneak peak, Miley explains the set up, “She thinks she’s going to have girls hangout time and order food, and when the delivery guy shows up, he’s going to ask to use my bathroom, he’s going to get his [genitals] zipped into the zipper of his pants. Khloe, you’re getting punk’d!”

Predictably since she’s used to crazy given her familial connections, Khloe handles it calmly and immediately calls 911 to help the man out. Check out the hilarious clip below! Khloe’s episode of Punk’d airs March 19th on MTV!

Guess what time it is!? Kardashian time! Which, in my mind also means it should be 5 o’ clock somewhere — because hearing about them leaves me exhausted and in need of libations!

Since Kim Kardashian has no job to speak of besides famewhoring she did a little sit down with Life & Style about what’s next for the falling star!

In the interview, Kim admits she is eager to put 2011 behind her and is ready to welcome the new year since you know, this one hasn’t been so great for her with the media backlash divorce and all. “It will be a new year and a new me!,” Kim enthused to the magazine. “I think 2011 was a great year of learning lessons, so I’m excited for 2012.” Oh, Kimmie learned some lessons alright — like how to isolate the public with her shenanigans!

According to Kim she is anticipating the new year because she is a changed person thanks to her two-day publicity humanitarian trip to Haiti and that hour she spent posing for cameras in an apron at the food bank on Thanksgiving. “It’s been such an awakening experience for me, and I would love to do more,” Kim shares of her Haitian trip where she apparently shopped for charity.

One thing Kim is not planning for 2012 — marriage no. 3! In fact, she’s not even ready to date! The Kourtney and Kim Take New York star reveals, “I’m not even thinking about it!” Instead, she’s working to improve herself ’cause she’s a new Kim ya’all! “I’ve been hanging out at my mom’s house. It’s been fun taking cooking lessons, chilling out and wearing sweat pants everyday,” Kim shares.

Well, Kim better get used to that chilling out in sweat pants thing because she may be doing a lot more of it in the near future. HollywoodLife is reporting that ever since that divorce the Kardashians’ wished-had-never-happened the family’s magazine sales have been declining with a capital D.

While Kimmie Kakes managed to appear on more covers than any other star in 2011 (and brought in “bestselling numbers” for her covers of Cosmopolitan and Glamour at the beginning of the year) some of her other covers for magazines like Lucky, Harpers Bazaar and Self brought in tepid numbers.

Additionally, according to reports her January 2012 Glamour cover (which featured Kim alongside Kourtney and Khloe) is “on track for poor performance.” Uh-oh. Perhaps Kim is starting to go the way of her former friend turned foe Paris Hilton and is headed for has-been country!

Moving right along, Khloe recently blogged for Celebuzz and released a plethora of photos from the annual Kadashian family Christmas party throughout the years — including one of her as a blonde!

“As I’m sure many of you know, it’s a Kardashian Jenner family tradition to host a Christmas Eve party every year at my mom’s house. The entire family comes out, along with all of our closest friends,” Khloe wrote. “We’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember, so as you can imagine, I have a lot of photos from the parties over the years.”

Sadly, Khloe wasn’t able to attend this year and instead spent the holiday with Lamar. “This year is the first time in my entire life I will miss our party and Christmas morning with my family. It’s going to be weird but I would never leave my hubby alone on Christmas!”

One thing I love about the Kardashians is their unfailing ability to make anything — anything– news! Frankly, I’m surprised we don’t get a GoogleAlert everytime they pee! Wait — I shouldn’t give them any ideas…

Anyways, in the Kardashian news of the day RadarOnline reports that Khloe Kardashian Odom (a.k.a. the only tolerable one) is “thrilled” to be escaping Kimmie Kakes and pimpmomma Kris Jenner with her upcoming move to Dallas for husband Lamar Odom‘s basketball career!

“Khloe is eager to get out of the constant media spotlight that comes with living in Los Angeles. Dallas has welcomed her and Lamar with open arms, and she is embracing this as an adventure,” Khloe a source close to the couple explains. “Khloe has been telling her closest friends that she is thrilled about the move because she will be getting away from the constant family drama.”

The constant dramz as of late has been caused, of course, by Kimmie behaving completely selfishly following her heart and filing for divorce from Kris Humphries after a mere $17M profit and 72-days of marriage. Gotta love that Kim!

Reports have stated that Kim has been taking out her frustrations over being lambasted by the public heartbreak on Khloe which has caused the two to fight. “Kim and Khloe had been feuding up until November, but the two have since made up. However, Khloe is still extremely hurt that Kim called her an evil troll during an episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York.”

“Khloe loves her family, but there is just always a situation where one family member is mad at another. She is embracing this move in a big way,” the friend admits.

Khloe is so excited about the move she has already started house hunting in Dallas. “Khloe will be going back and forth between L.A. and Dallas getting their households coordinated. Khloe will be spending Christmas Day with her hubby in Dallas as his team plays the Miami Heat,” the source continues. “Khloe and Lamar have a rock solid marriage, and they spend as much time as possible together, they are very much in love.”

Another reason Khloe is so excited about the move is because she is hopeful that a more relaxed lifestyle will increase her chances of conceiving. “Khloe has told Lamar that leading a calmer life in Dallas will help her get and stay pregnant,” the friend reveals.

In other Kardashian news apparently their Kardashian Kollection for Sears isn’t selling! According to MSN Money Sears erroneously bet on the Kardashian Kollection “stirring up consumer excitement” only to be rewarded with dismal sales and a lot of clearance racks boasting the products. Oops.

“Sears was betting the Kardashian name and collection of fashion products would stir up consumer excitement,” Unfortunately even on Black Friday sales were very low! Sears, which has consistently had negative earnings, “posting losses in every quarter so far this year,” failed to see a profit and the highly anticipated Kardashian Kollection did little to boost revenue for the struggling chain.

Marija Dabovic, a retail industry analyst for investment research firm Value Line, claims that “Sears Holdings has yet to see meaningful improvement,” after relying on the fame of Kim and ko. to deliver with their collection that offers “almost every product that women would want.” Including some blatant knock-offs!

Unfortunately, the kollection has been besieged by troubles including Sears being forced to pull certain products for copyright infringement. The biggest issue likely stems from the Kardashians recent fall from grace!

Sears launched the Kardashian Kollection right before Kim’s Fairytale Wedding when the family was right in the midst of a media frenzy over the event and generating tons of fan excitement. Sadly, I’m sure Sears wasn’t anticipating Kim’s Nightmare Divorce three-months later, which caused a media and public backlash.

Unfortunately the department store chain has already invested big on “initiatives” that have not been “effective” which is industry speak for getting burned by the Kardashians and there is little they can do to recover their losses if the klothes don’t sell. Well, what were they expecting with leopard-print jumpsuits?

THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST KARDASHIAN NEWS? ARE YOU SURPRISED KHLOE IS THRILLED TO ESCAPE HER FAM? HAVE YOU PURCHASED ANYTHING FROM THE KARDASHIAN KOLLECTION? WOULD YOU?


The Kardashian publicity machine is at it again in a desperate attempt to salvage their image and convince people they are still a big deal!

Kris Jenner pimpmomager extraordinaire must be impressing someone because Dancing With The Stars may have a continued interested in the family K and considering Kendall, 16, or Kylie, 14, to be part of next season’s cast!

A source spoke to HollywoodLife, claiming the network is indeed interested in the littlest of the Keeping Up With The Kardashian siblings. “We would actually love for Kendall or Kylie to join the show; they are so young and would give our show a different audience because you honestly don’t know how they would do,” the source explains. “I mean look at what happened with Rob [Kardashian] this year! It would be great to have Kendall or Kylie.”

“The Kardashian family has been great for the show and we would love any of the family to join the show,” the source continues.“It’s a complete open door for Khloe, Kourtney and the rest of the gang.”

One person who is not interested in dancing is Kris, herself! Showing up at The Hollywood Reporter’s Power 100 Women in Entertainment breakfast last week, Kris told former contestant Nancy Grace that she has “too much work,” to make time for DWTS. Work? What work? Manipulating the media and pimping out her daughters for a measly 10%? And it seems like the feeling is mutual! “Nope, no offer [was made by ‘DWTS’],” Kris’ rep confirms to the NY Post.

While Kris may be too busy for a DWTS appearance she’s not too busy to get in feuds with A-List celebrities! Speaking to GQ, famous actor Daniel Craig complained about the culture of reality TV creating celebrities out of nothing. And who better to illustrate that point than the Kardashian family! “It’s not about being afraid to be public with your emotions or about who you are and what you stand for. But if you sell it off it’s gone,” Daniel lamented.

“You can’t buy it back — you can’t buy your privacy back. ‘Ooh I want to be alone’. ‘F*** you. We’ve been in your living room. We were at your birth. You filmed it for us and showed us the placenta and now you want some privacy?’” he continued.

“Look at the Kardashians, they’re worth millions. I don’t think they were that badly off to begin with but now look at them. You see that and you think “what, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f***ing idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions. I’m not judging it — well, I am obviously,” Daniel declared, echoing what millions of Americans think as well.

While Daniel denies that he was speaking about the Kardashians directly, telling Reuters people need to “re-read the quote,” Kris is taking offense and she wants him to apologize for speaking the truth!

“[He has] crossed the line. It’s not made him look like the world’s nicest guy,” Kris snapped, speaking to Heat Magazine. “The right thing for a real man to do now would be to issue a public apology. The easy thing would be to criticize his career now, but our family won’t stoop to that level.”

Wait — they were considering criticizing his career in retaliation. Excuse me while I laugh. I’m sure Daniel is really worried about the prospect. Oh dear… I just couldn’t make up better stuff!

Finally, just as we had predicted, photos of Kim Kardashian “giving back” in Haiti have made their way online! In fact, Kimmie really wants the world to like her again know about her good deeds as she of course blogged about it this morning.

Kim wrote, “Hey dolls. I want to share this article I wrote with Maria Bello for The Huffington Post about our incredible experience together in Haiti. I’ll be posting more pics and stories from this life-changing trip next week.” Yaaay, more photos to come! Lucky us. In the meantime, below are two photos of Kim and her pimp mom in Haiti.

Oh, Kardashians. I swear their family motto is: Will Work For Attention And Paparazzi!

Pimpmomager Kris Jenner, apparently allergic to the word ‘privacy’, is working over-time to pimp her new memoir Kris Jenner and All Things Kardashian by revealing the salacious details of her affair while married to ex-husband, Robert Kardashian, Keepin it klassy!

Kris, 56, who married at 22 and immediately began having children, spills that Robert (the father to Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob) “had been the only man in my life since I was 18… I don’t know why I was having a mid-life crisis at 30, but I was.” This caused the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star to “emotionally” disconnect from her marriage and seek the attention of another man!

Kris describes meeting Ryan, a “producer”, at a friend’s party while her husband was away on a “boys’ ski weekend” which led to a steamy, passionate affair! “We had sex everywhere, all the time,” Kris writes, scarring us for life by putting those images into our heads. She goes even farther, stating Ryan and her had “out of control, crazy dangerous, wild sex” in cars, on the tennis court, in the pool house, the garage! Oh the affairs of the rich! – no seedy hotels for Mama K.

Divulging that she lied constantly to cover the affair (and where were the four K-kids while she was getting busy on Beverly Hills tennis courts, I ask?), Kris claims that after Robert caught her numerous times he filed for divorce. Shortly after, Kris learned that Ryan, her younger paramour, was already cheating on her with other girls! You know what they say about my favorite K-word: Karma!

Kris reveals that upon telling her four children about the divorce they “cried, cried, cried, cried, cried. It was horrible” and upon reading all the racy details of Kris’ sex life I imagine they cried, cried, cried again!

“Suddenly I realized everything that was great about my marriage. Robert was the greatest guy in the world. He would never cheat on me. He only wanted the best for me… he made me a better person,” Kris writes in her tell-all; adding that the divorce caused her to lose “friends, respect, and love.”

“To this day I still cannot tell you why. Again, it was if my body had been taken over by demons or aliens. I was really ashamed of myself,” Kris confesses. “It’s probably the biggest regret of my life that I ended up having an affair,” she shares. “[I was] probably just really naive and stupid and restless and didn’t realize that marriage has its ups and downs.”

Perhaps giving a little advice to currently divorcing daughter, Kim, Kris claims she could have saved her marriage and spared her children if only she had talked to Robert about how she was feeling. You think?

Kris sums up her tryst as: “When you’re very young you do a lot of stupid things.” Like participate in reality television? Get married for 72-days after making a zillion dollars and then film your break-up? Buy your 16-year-old daughter a brand new Range Rover?

Oh yeah, about that Range Rover, Kendall Jenner stepped outside a restaurant following her sweet sixteen dinner to find a bow wrapped Range Rover! A photo of Kendall receiving the gift is below. I’m sure the entire event will also be chronicled by E! as it was reported that Kendall is getting her very own Sweet Sixteen special, which included her shopping for a car.

In other Kardashian news, Kris J’s mother, Mary Jo, is speaking out about Kim’s latest shenanigan — you know, that divorce she recently filed for — and advising her to step out of the public eye for a while. “She has been urging Kim to do this ever since she filed for divorce from Kris [Humphries],” a source comments. “She thinks reality TV is destroying her life!”

Kim’s very wise grandmother is encouraging her to take a “two year break from reality TV,” an insider tells HollywoodLife. What should Kim do away from the spotlight? “Travel to some other country and live there for a while and stay single for the time being,” the insider adds.

And echoing recent reports of tension amongst the Kardashian family over Kim’s latest ploy for attention jeopardizing the family’s career, the insider is claiming that Mary Jo has been arguing with her daughter Kris over their latest media blitz to defend Kim’s actions! “She is fed up with Kris continually pushing her daughters to be in the public eye and now it is back firing,” the source declares. Juicy!
