Khloe Kardashian‘s struggles with infertility are no secret. Khloe and husband Lamar Odom have been trying to expand their family and after learning that her sister Kourtney Kardashian was pregnant with her second child, the stress apparently became too much for the otherwise happy couple!
In the promo clips E! has been airing for the new Khloe and Lamar season, Lamar can be seen stating he is jealous Kourtney is pregnant again, while he and Khloe have still yet to conceive.
Appearing on the Today Show, Khloe spoke candidly about dealing with her infertility struggles and how it has affected her marriage. “It’s always in the plan for Lamar and I to start a family,” Khloe explained. “It broke my heart [to hear he was jealous that Kourtney was pregnant with her second baby]. I didn’t think he felt that way.”
Despite trying for more than a year, the couple is still hopeful and Lamar is supportive of his wife no matter what. “We really are like, when it happens, it happens,” Khloe confirms.
And Khloe denies reports that she has been going through rounds of IVF! “There are so many rumors out there about fertility treatments,” Khloe confronts. “Yesterday I was sent all these flowers to my condo in Dallas, and I looked at the cards, and they were from three fertility treatments saying, ‘We hope you try us out.’ But I’m doing it the old-fashioned way.” That’s an unorthodox Valentine!
The couples’ difficulties working through these issues will be a central theme on the upcoming season of Khloe & Lamar. “[The cameras] added extra pressure. We were in the middle of filming, so I couldn’t say, ‘We’re done!’ just because we’re moving. And [the producers] loved it. Drama! Stress! Great!,” Khloe shares.
While Khloe has been honest about the stress trying to conceive has put on her marriage, saying they are not using fertility treatments, multiple reports have claimed otherwise. Allegedly, after months of failed IVF attempts, Khloe and Lamar are reportedly turning to other alternatives. “Everyone has been really supportive, but Lamar no longer knows how to deal with the constant disappointments,” an insider says.
Khloe wants a child so badly she’s willing to try anything to get one. “She’s desperate for child,” the insider describes. “How it happens doesn’t matter, as long as it just happens.”
According to In Touch Weekly‘s (print edition), Khloe has asked her sister Kourtney to be her surrogate! “She immediately said yes,” a family insider reveals, adding that the struggles dealing with Kim’s divorce the family has grown closer than ever. “Kourtney will do anything to help because she knows just how much Khloe is suffering over her infertility,” the friend explains.
Kim Kardashian was also quoted in Allure magazine as saying Khloe asked her about being a surrogate! While Kourtney may be totally on board, long-time boyfriend Scott Disick is not! “In typical Scott fashion, it doesn’t benefit him so he’s against it,” the source discloses. Regardless of what Scott thinks, Kourtney is planning to go through with it in 2013, after she has recovered from her most recent pregnancy.
If you recall, a number of reports stated the two were spotted together having lunch over the weekend, albeit in a group setting. Well, TMZ caught up with Reggie yesterday and when asked about the rumors he is back together with Kim, Reggie made it clear they were false.
Even more interesting, it appears the so called run-in with TMZ cameras might have been planned by Reggie to get it out there that he is definitely not back together with Kimmie Kakes! Poor poor Kim, she might have just divorced the last man on earth who was willing to claim her!

THOUGHTS ON KHLOE’S FERTILITY STRUGGLES? WAS IT A GOOD IDEA FOR HER TO ASK KOURTNEY TO BE HER SURROGATE?
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, andLamar [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?

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!

A new report has experts and physicians calling QuickTrim “dangerous and ineffective”! Both Kim and Khloe endorse the product and have been featured in its ads. In fact, during an episode of Khloe & Lamar, pimpmomager Kris Jenner was heard yelling at Khloe that she would lose the endorsement for being too fat! Kim has claimed to have lost around 15lbs using the supplements and credited the products for helping her lose weight before her made-for-TV wedding.
Maybe Khloe knew something the rest of us didn’t as the report claims QuickTrim is hazardous to your health! “I don’t think anyone should take these products,” Dr. Adriane Fugh-Berman warns in an interview for US News & World Report.
Dr. Fugh-Berman, a physician and associate professor at Georgetown University Medical Center, along with registered dietitian Keri Gans decided to review three QuickTrim products and found that these supplements “contain powerful stimulants, laxatives, and diuretics that could cause abdominal pains, cramping and even kidney failure.”
Additionally they discovered that the QuickTrim products contained “large amounts of caffeine” which the company is not disclosing! “It irritates me that they’re not saying how much caffeine is in these pills,” Dr. Fugh-Berman relayed. “Too much caffeine can make you jittery and increase your blood pressure and pulse.”
“If you pop a couple of these pills with your Starbucks coffee, that’s not good; you could get caffeine poisoning, which can cause heart arrhythmias,” she cautions.
Registered dietitian Heather Mangeiri, a spokesman for the American Dietetic Association also echos those warnings and calls the pills ineffective! “My suggestion is to leave them on the shelf,” she advises.”Dietary supplements like these aren’t regulated by the [Food and Drug Administration], and many of the ingredients haven’t been shown to be effective.”
No statements have been made from QuickTrim or the Kardashian family regarding these findings.
In other Kardashian overdose news – the family is opening a new boutique. Yes – another one. “We are so excited to announce that our lifestyle boutique, Kardashian Khaos, is opening on November 1 in The Mirage, Las Vegas!!” Kim announced on her website this week. I love the name – sooo original!
“The store will feature so many amazing products including all the products that we own, represent, market and endorse, and some exclusive Las Vegas souvenir items,” Kim enthuses. Do you think they’ll be selling QuickTrim there? Including a very special product – sit down for this – a Kardashian TATTOO!!!! Oh NO!
“Never in my life did I think I would be made into a temporary tattoo,” desperate for attention and money-hungry mom, Kris wrote on her blog this week. “But never say never, right?! LOL.”
The Kardashians aren’t stopping there either – the family filed multiple U.S. Patent and Trademark documents for “Kardashian Kollection Home,” which may include “towels, bath mats, bedding as well as kitchen utensils, picture frames, and beer mugs.” Yes – because they have such stellar decorating tastes we all want our homes to look that tacky great.

THOUGHTS ON THE DANGEROUS FINDINGS RELATED TO QUICKTRIM PRODUCTS? DO YOU BELIEVE THE KARDASHIANS KNEW THE PRODUCTS WERE DANGEROUS? ARE YOU AS SHOCKED AS I AM THAT A KARDASHIAN TEMPORARY TATTOO WILL BE ON THE MARKET SOON?
It’s no secret (though it is a komplete surprise) that the Kardashian Konglomerate is a big-moneymaking business. Led by Pimp Momager, Kris Jenner Kardashian, the family has raked in millions starting with a little thing like an accidentally leaked sex tape. Well, I have more bad news…
After earning a reported $65 million in 2010, it seems the Sisters Kardashian are slated to make… wait for it: $200-$300 MILLION dollars in the the next year alone from their Kardashian Kollection for Sears. But it gets better as they are predicted to be closing in on a Billion-Dollar empire in the next 2 years!
Brian Dow, a partner at APA Talent and Literaly Agency who reps the brands komprised of the Kardashian Kingdom, tells Women’s Wear Daily: “The Kardashians could easily be a billion-dollar business worldwide in the next two years.”
Especially since they are planning to take their Sears Kollection global with markets in the U.K., Italy, and Australia. I feel so bad for those other countries. Or should I say kountries? Wow – that’s an incredible payout for such cheap and tacky clothes!
In addition to dressing like the sisters, people apparently want to smell like the Kardashians too, as their fragrance lines are huge money-makers!
“Kardashian is the type of brand that can afford to be everywhere — we’re not concerned about overexposure,” says Philip Zellner, CEO of Lighthouse Brands, the company that produces the Kardashian fragrances.
“Everyone who watches and reads about them feels like they know them, that they’re part of their family. There is an aspirational aspect that the consumer looks up to, as well as the day-to-day drama,” Mr. Zellner believes.
Because according to Mr. Zellner, the four fragrance lines kreated by the Kardashians – three (and a fourth on the way!) from Kim and one unisex fragrance from Khloe and husband Lamar Odom – are expected to generate $50M! Who is buying this stuff?! I am seriously perplexed!
So, just to break it down in the next couple years these ladies could be raking in close to a billion dollars! Kue the lawsuits that will likely be rolling in… especially considering they are already being accused of kopy-katting.

“I’m not desperate to have a baby,” said Khloe. “Do I want children? Yes. But I’m very happy being just Lamar and I.” She added, “I think a baby would add so much to us, but right now, I’m so content and so happy with the way things are. People think I would sell my hair to have a child.”
But Khloe makes certain to keep those pregnancy rumors alive let us know she isn’t doing anything to prevent a baby. “We feel like we’re young and whatever is meant to happen is meant to happen,” she said. “I’m healthy, I know I can have children. He can have children. It’s like we’re not doing anything to stop it, but I don’t have like an ovulation calendar and all that.”
Given everything, Khloe added, “If I don’t get pregnant in a few years, then we’ll call the doctor and figure out what happened.”
Meanwhile, the 100th Kardashian spinoff show aka Khloe & Lamar is set to debut on E! Sunday April, 10 at 10/9c. E! has released a season trailer, which is below.
And finally, Kim Kardashian started a storm of engagement rumors with NBA beau Kris Humphrieswhen she tweeted on March 27, “I am so happy my future husband just surprised me!” When asked by some of her 6 million followers if she was engaged, Kim tweeted a response a few hours later, saying, “Hump was playing on my phone. I will get him back!”
Kimmy and Kris were then photographed taking a walk in NYC on Sunday. Those photos are below. Kim also tweeted a new pic this morning, stating she had an exciting day ahead of her at the Sears headquarters. She and her sisters are currently working with Sears to develop a clothing line. That pic is below as well.

And how many times have I ‘had my butt done’? People’s logic is so weird. I don’t know why they bother!”
