While Khloe Kardashian is used to scrutiny from the media when it comes to her weight, it seems she isn’t used to criticism about her weight coming from her momager Kris Jenner.
In a new video clip from the upcoming Sunday episode of Khloe & Lamar, Khloe, 26, experiences a verbal bitch slap from Mama Kris for packing on a few extra pounds. But is Kris really concerned about Khloe’s health you ask? Of course not! The momager/part-time pimp is simply concerned about her 10% via Khloe’s endorsement deal with the Quicktrim diet supplement. Kris accuses Khloe of sabotaging the brand.
“You don’t care and it’s very very upsetting to me because I’ve worked so hard at creating what I think is a great deal for you girls and you’re not pulling your end of the weight,” says Kris to Khloe in the sneak preview of the all-new episode. “I feel like you could not chat about how many cookies you’re eating in between meals [to the media]…”
Khloe however gets defensive as she feels torn due to her struggle in wanting to maintain a healthy weight and her effort to conceive a baby with hubby Lamar Odom.
“To tell me I’m ruining a whole brand because of my weight gain makes me feel like s–t. Get over yourself. You’re such a f–king raging lunatic and you’re so evil,” snipes Khloe to mom Kris. “I’m too f–king fat, too f–king that. Do you want me to get pregnant? Do you want me to lose weight? You tell me you want me to have a baby every second, but I can’t be on some crazy diet. I just don’t get what you want out of me!”
A preview clip of the convo is below. The new episode of Khloe & Lamar airs Sunday night at 10/9c on E!.
In other Khloe news, she is getting ready to take a dip into the acting pond. It was announced this week that she will appear on the April 25 episode of Law & Order: Los Angeles.

The latest involves Kim Kardashian of course following the release of a Turkish Cosmopolitan Magazine cover featuring her. The problem? Kim is Armenian and the Turks committed genocide against the Armenian people nearly 100 years ago, and still refuse to acknowledge it.
Plus the magazine did not get Kim’s permission before splashing her on the Turk cover at a time that coincides with the Genocide Remembrance Day, which commemorates the victims of the 1915 Armenian genocide.
TMZ adds that Kim was completely unaware she was on the Turkish cover until they did a story about it yesterday. Sources tell TMZ that Kim was very upset and would never have approved the use of her photo in the Turkish version.
But fret not folks as it all ends well for Kimmy. A new TMZ report today states Kim and Cosmo have kissed and made up already with a new photo shoot already in the works, that could take place as early as this week. Sources however make it clear Kim really struggled with her decision to work with Cosmo again because even though she has an “amazing relationship” with the mag, she’s very passionate about her Armenian heritage.
In other Kardashian news, Khloe Kardashian and hubby Lamar Odomvisited the Ellen DeGeneres Show in a new interview airing today, during which they both revealed Lamar actually tried to quit their new reality show Khloe and Lamarduring filming.
“I thought it was going to be easy. It’s really tough,” admits Lamar. “I knew from doing my family’s show how intense and grueling and how much they are really in your face,” Khloe, 26, says. “I personally didn’t want to do the show. I love taping. I just didn’t want to put Lamar through that pressure and Lamar was like, ‘let’s do it.'”
Khloe then reveals that Lamar had a tough time with the cameras and tried to quit the show 3 days into filming. “He said, ‘Can you tell your mom to get us out of this contract?’ I go, ‘Absolutely not. That ship has sailed,'” Khloe said.
But fret not again folks as this story also has a happy ending. “Lamar loves the finished product,” added Khloe.
And finally, Kim is also gracing the latest cover of UK Cosmopolitan. Photos from that issue are below -

“It’s annoying when I hear, ‘What do your girls do?’ Well, first of all, all of my daughters have jobs. They are fashion stylists and designers; they own a chain of stores. They had the stores before they had the show,” pimp matriarch Kris, 55, tellsRedbook. “And my kids worked from the time they were 13 years old. So to me, that’s a huge misconception that the girls don’t work. They work 25 hours a day.”
And what about the criticism that her daughters are talentless hacks? “They might not be singers or dancers, but they certainly know how to produce a television show,” says Kris. “Whether you want to call it talent or not, they have multiple shows on the air. How many shows do you have?” Okay, so they don’t have a talent.
As for why their family seems to appeal to the TV audience, Khloe Kardashianbelieves it is due to their realness. “We are a real family. We don’t sugarcoat anything. We’re not the Brady Bunch, but we always put each other first,” Khloe, 26, says. “We love each other on camera, we cry on camera. I think people relate to the realness of it.”
Kim Kardashian also insists they have nothing to hide. “There’s nothing I’m really ashamed of, and I work hard on the show and all my other projects,” she states. “I don’t drink or do drugs, so I’m comfortable showing the world what my life is all about.”

I’ve always had big lips,” she explains. “Or they’ll show one picture of me today and one tomorrow, and say I’ve had my nose done in between. When? Didn’t you just see me yesterday? And how many times have I ‘had my butt done’? People’s logic is so weird. I don’t know why they bother!”

“It takes time, I guess, I don’t know,” replied Khloe, 26, adding that her conception issues are confounding. “I don’t know what the problem is,” she added.

Moving right along to Kim Kardashian, who is making headlines for an Old Navy commercial she’s not starring in. It seems the crafty folks at Old Navy are capitalizing off Kimmy’s fame as their latest commercial has people doing double takes, featuring Kim’s doppelganger in the form of real life singer Melissa Molinaro.

A day after the shocking report by the Hollywood Reporter (a very reputable media outlet) revealed the Kardashian clan earned an astonishing $65 million in 2010, we now have more details on just how the Keeping Up With The Kardashians family earned that amount.
We reported yesterday that Kim charges as much as $25,000 to tweet about a product or company, while commanding a personal appearance fee of $100,000 to $250,000 per event, and demanding up to $1 million internationally. Below are more detailed earnings of the Kardashians -
- The family splits a six-figure paycheck per E! episode. However, while the show might provide a steady paycheck, it serves a larger purpose of being a marketing platform for their endorsements and best-selling products, which include book, fragrance and clothing lines. Example, “Kourtney & Khloé Take Miami,” focused on the opening of a Florida outpost of their clothing store, Dash.
- Kim is rumored to have signed a seven-figure deal with a Las Vegas club owner for a handful of 2011 appearances. (Kris will not confirm.) “Kim sells,” a nightlife source says. Kim, who now has over 6 million followers on twitter tells THR, “I have a blog that has 40 million hits a month.”
- Kourtney sold her 2009 pregnancy news to Life & Style magazine for a cool $300,000! The deal included multiple stories: the pregnancy announcement, sex of the baby, birth announcement, first baby photos and body-after-baby reveal. (Life & Style declined comment.)
- Khloé and husband Lamar Odom scored close to $300,000 from OK! magazine for their wedding photos. Kris had everything from the Lehr & Black custom invitations to Khloé’s 9-carat engagement ring “donated” for the wedding, promising the vendors massive product promotion that would come from the media circus surrounding the wedding. In the event that an item wasn’t gifted, E!, it is believed, picked up the tab (E! declined comment).
- Certain paparazzi agencies have agreements with the family to stage photos, sell them and split the profits. Example – Kourtney and Scott Disick recently earned $7,500 for an afternoon laying poolside in Cancun.
- The Kardashian Kard, a prepaid credit card the sisters launched in November, gave them $3 for every card activated or sold, 25 percent of fees, a $75,000 advance on royalties and a $37,000 signing bonus. However, Kris quietly terminated the agreement when then-Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal complained the card had hidden predatory fees. The card’s issuer is now suing the family for $75 million.
To round up the interview with THR, Momager/PimpKris Jennerreveals the family has no plans of slowing down. “My fantasy is to have ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,‘ season 26,” Kris, 55, tells THR. “Who knew it would be this profitable? I should have had more kids.“
And believe it or not, Kris reveals she worries about overexposing the family. “We definitely worry about overexposure. We never want to get to a place where people are thinking, ‘Enough is enough.’ ” We take it Kris does not read “the blogs”
So teens, the moral of this story is to stay in school, and with hard work, you too can build a $65 million fortune. Oh, who are we kidding? Feel free to purchase a camcorder, find yourself a D-list singer and have at it! We kid, we kid… we think. Though we do have to wonder if going public with a story like this is good PR for the family, which has started to receive major backlash and criticism from the public in recent weeks.
