Remember that time Kim Kardashian stamped her feet and swore that Old Navy was trying to use a copycat version of her for their commercials and she threatened to sue? She did. And she won. Seriously.
For those who don't remember, Old Navy used singer and model Melissa Molinaro in a commercial in early 2011. She looks similar to Kim but that could be said for MANY women out there. Kim felt Old Navy was deceiving consumers since some of her Twitter followers mistook Melissa for Kim, so she sued them.
I hadn't heard much about the case, so I thought maybe Kim decided to drop that bit of ridiculousness, but that wasn't the case. Even though legal experts felt that Kim's case was a little far-fetched, Old Navy was ordered to pay Kim off.
In today’s Kardashian news, the Kardashians continue to fall victim to their own greed!
The latest is a $5 million class action lawsuit which was filed yesterday against Kim Kardashian, and her sisters, Khloeand Kourtney Kardashian, over their endorsement of the Quicktrim over-the-counter diet pills.
According to TMZ, the lawsuit was filed by a number of unhappy Quicktrim customers in New York City who state that the Kardashian sisters are lying when they claim they got their bikini bodies from using Qucktrim. The reason? The main ingredient in the supplement is, wait for it, caffiene!
The lawsuit states: “QuickTrim’s main ingredient is a large dose of caffeine, which the FDA has determined is not a safe or effective treatment for weight control.”
The lawsuit also adds that the Keeping Up With The Kardashian clan lied to the general public via their commercials (you’ve all seen those horrid tv ads featuring Kimmie Kakes), magazines, and social media accounts, since 2009. An example of this was a certain blog post made by Kim back in 2009, in which she posted a bikini photo (posted below) of herself with Khloe, crediting Quicktrim for their weight loss!
The lawsuit plaintiffs are crying foul, stating the Kardashian testimonials were unsubstantiated. Alongside the Kardashians, QuickTrim and other companies that sold the products are also named in the lawsuit.
In other Kardashian news, Kimmie Kakes was in Atlanta this week to film a guest spot on Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva, and of course our Kimmie took this as a perfect opportunity to orchestrate a famewhore stunt by calling up Real Housewives of Atlantastar Nene Leakes and a photographer or two to snap them going to dinner!
According to FreddyO, the two reality stars dined at the STK restaurant, described as a swank new steakhouse in Midtown Atlanta. During and after their dinner, the two, of course, wasted no time in taking to Twitter to inform the world of their time together!
“At dinner with my favorite Dash Doll Kim Kardashian; she is so sweet,” tweeted The Nene. “I’m still laughing out loud! Too much fun!” responded Kimmie. Photos of the two are below!
And finally, they say when it rains, it pours, and unfortunately for the Kardashians, it is storming! According to ESPN, Khloe’s hubby Lamar Odom has been demoted by his NBA team to the D-league aka the Developmental league.
The reason? Lamar is, unfortunately, having his worst season since being traded by the Lakers last December. The official word from the Mavericks is that they want Lamar to “get his legs back under him.”
The good news, however, is that while Lamar suffers the humiliation of playing for the Texas Legends, he will still receive his $8.9 million annual salary. Though something tell us we won’t be seeing Khloe and co. cheering for Lamar in the Texas Legends stands!
