Can we get a slow clap for everyone's favorite momager Kris Jenner? On the heels of Khloe Kardashian being named an X Factor host alongside Albert Clifford SlaterMario Lopez, we're now learning more about the negotiations–or rather break down in negotiations–that occurred prior to the big announcement.
I, for one, am thrilled to see Khloe separating herself from her sisters in the business world. She needs her own platform to shine, and that will never happen if Kim is involved. I mean, didn't Kim make Khloe's infertility issues about herself when she decided to freeze her eggs so that she could breed on down the line with the tiny rapper? Khloe can't have anything–even a heartbreaking situation–that isn't overshadowed by a certain ego-driven sibling. Mark my words, Khloe and Mario will be sharing strained banter on the upcoming X Factor season, and Kim will streak across the stage, upstaging the next Susan Boyle (yes, I know she was Britain's Got Talent, but her first foray into reality television is still the most amazing thing I've ever seen. Tears.) wearing nothing but Kanye West's $5,000 high tops and a smile. I hate that I can picture it.
Now, we're learning that there is one other person in the family who also needs to reap the headlines when one of her offspring does something right. That's right. Kris Jenner needs to go quietly into the background and watch her creations succeed at…well, just being alive…and talking…in a microphone. Of course, we all know Kris' contract won't allow her to do that!
I apologize in advance for the lengthiness of this post, but we all know that the Kardashian Klan must constantly work to stay in the spotlight. With so many of them, it's like a revolving door of gossip. Bless 'em.
Because things always seem to happen in threes, I have a trio of entertainment to share with you, dear readers. There's a storm a' brewin' on the set of X Factor as now-confirmed hosts Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez are having a difficult time fitting their giant wardrobes–and their egos!–into their dressing rooms. Of course, at least they HAVE dressing rooms. Word on the street is that Kim Kardashian and sister Kourtney will have to slum it on the upcoming season of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami due to a slight "misunderstanding" with South Beach. That misunderstanding being that no one in South Beach wants the Kardashian sisters around.
Last but not least, rapper Kanye West was visiting his girlfriend in her new digs when he found himself competing for attention with her former beau NFL player Reggie Bush. It's like an awesomely bad episode of Melrose Place!
According to TMZ, Khloe's contract with E! gives them ownership of her soul guarantees them exclusivity and they're worried she won't be available when they snap their fingers to promote her family's 52 spinoff shows because she'll busy doing press for X Factor.
The X Factor'sbackup plan? Extra host Mario Lopez. Snore.
I'm not sure what E! is so worried about, they have several spare Kardashians at their disposal for doing promotional work! #FREEKHLOE
Speaking of the Kardashian Krew, here they are working hard in Miami on their spinoff formerly known as Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami, now dubbed Kourtney & Kim Take Miami. Except that Kim was too busy this particular day to take Miami with her sisters because they were out doing work and stuff. Kourtney, Scott Disick, and everyone's two favorite Kardashians, Mason and Khloe, were out searching for another new DASH space. Check out the gallery below, including hanger-on Jonathan Cheban.

I'm actually not repulsed to report on this Kardashian news! Who knew? It's such a strange and odd feeling, I'm not quite sure how to process it!
Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been focusing on Khloe and Lamar Odom as they try to start a family. I do think that Khloe is the most genuine person in this crazy family, and it has to be heartbreaking for her to have so many issues with fertility while watching her sister Kourtney have her second child.
Khloe and krew were recently on Good Morning America, and the reality star (and future X Factorhost?) opened up about her struggles to have a baby.
Someone – or many someones – are buying the Kardashian Kollection from Sears. Fess up! Don't hide!
Today Sears wanted to celebrate the one year anniversary of the launch of the Kraptacular fashions with a kake and autograph signing at their Yonkers location. Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashianput on their best see-through tops and posed for photos at the event, where they were even presented with a "Kardashian Day" proclamation. The cake is pretty impressive, I'll give them that!
I didn't realize how orange Kim had gotten until seeing her bare legs next to Khloe's.
You know, I often think that if we normal people would just ignore all things Kardashian, the family would slowly fade into obscurity. Of course, I realize the irony of me wishing this would happen while blogging about them. I also realize it is never going to happen if non-normal (read: wacky celebs and "news correspondents") people keep giving them the time of day.
That said, I have an announcement to make. I am now watching Good Morning America for the first time ever. I don't know why I waited this long as I think George Stephanopoulos is hot, and I adore Amy Robach. The TODAY Show is dead to me. I'm sorry, Al Roker. I'll always think highly of you, as I know the show stripped you of extra time with your best pal Ann Curry, but to Matt Lauer (I blame you for Ann!) and the rest of the morning show's cronies, I say, for shame. (P.S. I still heart you, Willie Geist!)
Aaaahhh… love. Enough to warm the cold, cold heart of this soulless reality TV blogger. In celebration of well, some people's happiness, we've decided to put together a list of our favorite reality TV couples. Trust me – that's a lot harder to do than putting together a list of the couples we can't stand! Stay tuned for that one.
