In not so surprising news, TMZ is reporting the Kardashian sisters and their mother Kris Jenner are being sued for a whopping $75 million for reneging on their prepaid debit card deal.
If you recall, the sisters – Kim, Khloe and Kourtney – pulled out of the prepaid Mastercard deal citing they had no idea the card was loaded with hidden, possibly illegal fees after the Attorney General of Connecticut opened an investigation into the card.
Well it seems things don’t quite work that way in the business world as the Revenue Resource Group, LLC filed a lawsuit in Fresno, CA claiming the Keeping Up With The Kardashian stars breached their contract when they pulled out of a deal to be the faces of the controversial prepaid card.
According to RRG, the sisters signed a two-year deal that they should have honored, and ever since they backed out, the company has been hit with a ton of bad publicity.
RRG is claiming the sisters cost them over $75 million in damages. Ai yai yai. The Kardashians have yet to comment on the lawsuit.

“I am on my way to red,” Khloe, 26, explained to reporters of why her hair is currently a strawberry blonde hue, adding that the color transformation is yet to be completed. “I am doing some more red tomorrow. I am in the process.”
Khloe then joked of her older sisters Kim Kardashian, 30, and Kourtney Kardashian, 32: “I’m so tired of these girls copying everything I do with my hair, so I wanted to go red –watch, they’ll be red in two days!”
The Kardashian sisters ended up winning a People’s Choice Award for Favorite TV Guilty Pleasure. More photos of Khloe and her sisters below.
In other Khloe news, E! online finally confirmed the widely reported spin-off show of Khloe and her hubby Lamar Odom yesterday. According to E!, the show will also include Khloe’s younger brother Rob Kardashian, who is currently living with the couple and is embarking on a career in the music industry.
“Only a very small part of our life together is shown, but with this show, we’re putting it ALL out there LOL,” Khloe blogged. “[My brother] Rob will play a major role in this too since he lives with us. He’s basically like our son LOL. With the three of us living together, it’s honestly like a sitcom.”

Following months of speculation, UsWeekly is now confirming Khloe Kardashian and hubby Lamar Odom are indeed getting their own spinoff show!
The show will reportedly be a newlyweds-type reality show similar to Bravo’s Bethenny Getting Married. “It shoots in the spring,” says an insider. “They’re so cute, playing off one another.”
UsWeekly also adds that another Keeping Up With The Kardashians spinoff, Kourtney & Kim Take New York, set to debut on E! January 23, will be missing a major cast member.
While it has been reported that Scott Disick axed the idea of having his son Mason on the show so that he can have a “normal” life, a source tells the mag the real issue was money as Scott demanded $5,000 an episode for his son. “E! offered $1,000, but he played hardball. E! was like, ‘Are you out of your mind?’”
Another source adds, “He bungled negotiations, so you won’t see Mason at all!”
And finally, Kim Kardashian stepped out yesterday debuting a completely different hairstyle as she had her hair braided up in cornrows. It however seems the new hairstyle is for the music video she is currently shooting with Kanye West for her upcoming single.
“Day #3 Night shoot! I’m fighting hair and make up….this look is a little cray cray, but I’m going for it!” she tweeted yesterday. More photos of Kimmy’s new hairstyle below -

Despite having spent the past few months dating the NFL and NBA leagues, it seems Kim Kardashian would rather remain single.
During a recent appearance on the Rachael Ray Show, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star vowed to remain single — through 2011. “I want to try to be single my whole year of being 30,” said Kimmy. “I’ve never just dated and done whatever I wanted.”
In fact, Kim and Kris, 25, stepped out for the first time a week and a half ago as the two attended a party in NYC. And though they tried to avoid being photographed together, the couple was eventually snapped while entering Kim’s hotel in the wee hours of a Saturday morning. That photo of Kim and Kris is below.
“I’ve made a promise to myself and I’m really trying hard to stick to it, but I’m such a hopeless romantic that it’s hard,” Kim explains. “I don’t think that’s going to last, because that’s just how I am. But the fact that I’m trying is a big step for me!”
In other Kardashian news, the sisters were the subject of a highlarious Saturday Night Live skit this Saturday. In the skit, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe were mocked as they whined their way through a Christmas message.
“We even went to visit Santa,” Kourtney whines. “I sat on his lap and told him what I wanted.” Adds “Kim”: “I did the same thing with Reggie Bush! I got a Rolex.” Kim’s sex tape with Ray J was also mocked. The skit is below -

However, it seems the Kardashian-Jenner clan decided to take things up a notch this year by going for a dramatic over the top look — posing in exquisite gowns and dark make-up.
“We went super glam this year and each went for our own look,” Kim Kardashian blogged on Wednesday. “Kourt chose a tailored suit to match Mason and Scott, Khloe went for gorgeous peach ruffles and I chose a floor-length white gown. How stunning do Kendall and Kylie look!? This might be my favorite of all our family Christmas cards!”
Kourtney Kardashian also blogged about the photo, stating that “Mason is wearing a custom made Astor & Black suit Ralph Lauren shirt, Pucci pocket square and Ralph Lauren shoes.”
Allrighty then. Some behind the scenes photos below of the Kardashian family.

Could the Kardashian sisters’ world domination be coming to a close end?
First came that whole Pre-paid Kardashian Kard debacle, followed by an embarrassing charity stunt gone wrong, plus low sales of their new book Kardashian Konfidential, and now a new report that reveals their fashion “empire” is in crisis.
The reason? Well the unofficial reason rather is simply because the line did not perform as well as Bebe would have liked. Bebe president Emilia Fabricant however put it in nicer terms. “The sisters do still have relevance. We need to move with fashion and we want to be first in the fashion world with everybody else and not fall behind,” Fabricant toldWWD. “We are definitely assessing the situation.”
It doesn’t end there as a column in Thursday’s New York Times gave a scathing review of the sisters’ NYC boutique store Dash.
“Dash is a fashion desert, just oodles of drippy cowl necks and embellished cap sleeves and synthetic fibers,” said the article. “Clothes are essentially split into two categories of fit: vacuum-sealed and hot-air balloon.”
The writer Jon Caramanica then added that the overpriced clothes, including an animal print dress for $308 and a hat for $430, seemed questionable at best. “You could wear this look, in the same way you could hire an enthusiastic 5-year-old as your stylist.” Ouch.
And finally, Khloe Kardashian is coming under fire for some comments she made during her recent appearance on Lopez Tonight. “They basically are just raping you in public,” Khloe, 26, complained comparing the airport patdowns to rape. “I got asked the other day, do you want to go for a screening or get padded down,” the reality star said. “I don’t want that X-Ray to see everything, honey!”
According to RadarOnline, victims’ right advocate groups are very unhappy with Khloe’s comments. “I think it was an ill-informed thing for her to say, “ said Jazmin Robles, a community education coordinator with the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center,. “It was a very strong comment to make because rape is defined as ‘forceful penetration’ and a lot of young women look up to celebrities like the Kardashians.”

Following many millions earned and many years of successful numerous endorsements, it seems the Kardashians sisters have hit a major bump with their latest effort to branch into financing.
Just 3 weeks after announcing their endorsement deal with mastercard for their own prepaid debit card – Kardashian Kard — the three sisters, Khloe, Kim & Kourtney, have officially pulled the plug on the deal.
According to TMZ, the Keeping Up With The Kardashian stars sent out a “Notice of Termination” to the companies behind the card on Monday afternoon — stating that they’re sick of the “negative spotlight” after the Attorney General of Connecticut opened an investigation to determine if the card violates consumer protection laws.
The “Kardashian Kard” includes a picture of the trio on one side and was aimed at young adults. It immediately came under attack after the hidden fees were revealed to the public. For example, It costs $59.95 just to buy the card for six months, or $99.95 for 12 months. Which doesn’t include any money on the card as the card owner was responsible for adding money to it.
Unfortunately, the fees did not end there as after those six or 12 months are up, it then costs $7.95 a month to keep using the card. Users also had to pay $1.50 to withdraw cash from an ATM, and $1 to check their balance. Talking to a customer representative? $1.50 for each call, and canceling the card costs $6.
And oh yeah, losing the card also results in a charge of $9.95. Ultimately, consumers lost money before even getting the chance to use the card. In the letter obtained by TMZ, the Kardashian lawyers wrote, “The Kardashians have worked extremely long and hard to create a positive public persona that appeals to everyone, particularly young adults,” before adding that the investigation “threatens everything for which [The Kardashians] have worked.”
Those who have the card still have up to 30 days to continue using it. Once the 30 days are over, they would receive refunds of balances and up-front fees.
