I’m not sure if you’ve heard but the Kardashian family recently sat down to talk to Oprah about everything Kardashian. Oprah’s ratings are suffering so we must suffer through the news that’s hardly news but now it’s breaking news because it’s coming from Oprah. I hope you’ve all learned a valuable lesson here – watch the OWN Network or we get Kardashians: Rinse and Repeat. I refuse to speculate on who the next punishment could be.
Since the interview was so deep, it brings us all the way back to the early years of the Kardashian empire, namely Kim Kardashian’s sex tape. How does Kim Kardashian‘s new beau Kanye West feel about the recent buzz over Kim’s naked romp with Ray J? Dude, he isn’t trippin’ on it. An insider tells Hollywood Life, “Kim f*%#ed on tape and became an international icon and made [many] millions. So to me, she’s gangsta. These other girls got the game [messed] up, not Kim, and I think that’s why Kanye is so drawn to her and supports her and doesn’t give a [crap] about her past. He likes her for her and respects the fact she came up in the game.” That’s sweet. Haters are going to hate no matter what, but the source warns us, “Everyone’s hate on her and [lots of] people hate on Kanye too. You think they care, really? Jealousy and envy fuels people like them. It only makes them stronger.” Noted.
So, it’s been established that Kanye isn’t going to dwell on Kim’s past or anything that was discussed in the interview. What about her soon-to-be (maybe even in this decade) ex-husband Kris Humphries? Is there anything in the interview that could help his case? His lawyers sure think so!
As if the Kardashian family isn’t overexposed enough, the Queen of Talk, Oprah Winfrey herself, felt compelled to give them yet another platform from which to spew their ridiculousness. Thanks a heap, O. Couldn’t you just stick to book clubs and giveaways? UsWeekly reports on the interview’s highlights.
Questioning Kim about her blink-and-you-missed-it wedding to Kris Humphries and career catapulting sex tape with Ray J, the reality mogul oh so eloquently replies, “I’ve obviously made plenty of mistakes in my lifetime, but I’m not the type to sit and beat myself up over it. If a real lesson was learned, I’m so okay with having experienced that.”
CAUTION! Before you read what comes next you may want to arm yourself with some sort of trash receptacle or barf bag. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Here’s some gossip I’m seriously questioning. Days after Reggie Bush publicly denied dating Kim Kardashian and weeks after she said she had no interest in getting married for a third time, a new report is claiming the ex-couple is not only back on, but Kim is willing to give up her “career” to marry him right away!
In Touch Weekly is claiming that Kim is prepared to do anything to convince Reggie to give her another chance. “Reggie wants Kim to completely disappear from the public eye,” an insider reveals. “Kim thinks Reggie is the one so she’s going to try her best.”
Reggie, who was notoriously uninterested in being a famewhore, reportedly dumped Kim because she was too enamored with the paparazzi and being on a fake reality show to care about him. But now Kim is willing to leave “reality” TV behind and be the wife she promised Kris Humphries she would be – except with Reggie!
Multiple reports have speculated the two are secretly dating and allegedly Reggie told Kim he did not want to be photographed together in public! In fact Kimmie has reportedly paid Reggie a secret visit in Miami early this month, during which, they were both holed up in a private residence for several days. Kim, a notorious fame-seeker, intentionally avoided the paparazzi. “She didn’t go out once,” a source adds. “And they weren’t seen in public together per his request.” Dang, she is really desperate. That’s called ‘I’m embarrassed to be seen with you but we can hook up’, Kim!
Apparently, now that Kim is willing to leave Keeping Up With The Kardashiansand her other umpteen reality shows behind, Reggie has agreed to marry her once her divorce is over. “She’s insisting that she wants to run off with him to marry,” a friend of Kim reports. “It’ll be very private.” Kim did say she regretted her made for TV wedding! Of course, Reggie has some serious conditions: “stop seeking publicity, give up her reality TV career, and finalize her divorce with Kris quietly.” Sadly, Kris doesn’t want a quiet, quickie divorce – he wants to expose Kim for the pathetic famewhore she is!
Why do I not believe this for an instant? Like Kris Jenner would let her number one meal ticket fall idly by the wayside for something as trivial as love! Mama has bills to pay!
Moving right along, Ray J is getting his comeuppance by revealing low-down dirty secrets about Kim, oh excuse me – I mean “KK.” Ray J is on a rampage and he is letting everyone know just how Kim keeps a man – and it’s not her personality! “We were like animals; sexually free to try anything and we did,” he reveals in his new book Death Of The Cheating Man. “The first 30 days with Kim seemed to put me in a trance” he describes, “and the wilder the sex, the more my feelings got stronger.”
Kim was allegedly still married when the two started going at it, and it was the affair that ended her marriage. And while she was cheating she was reportedly a “straight freak who was down to do whatever, whenever and that she seriously hypnotized me.” He explains, “There are certain things that a woman can do to hypnotize a man and Kim knew them all.” I’m guessing her freak number is a 10!
Ray J describes their sex life as “buck-wild; we would get sexual at any time and then she would do certain things that most women just don’t seem to do.” Sadly, we know all too well what sort of sex life these two had, since an unexpected sex tape the two created was inexplicably leaked. Gee, I wonder just how that happened?! #krisjenner.
Ray J says he initially panicked when he learned the tape had gone public, but it’s done nothing but help his image! It has, cause he’s famous for what exactly? “I thought [my career] was literally over as I saw it,” he writes. “At the time, I thought my life and money might be over because you can’t be respected once you go into a certain world that involves sex.” I love these two, Kim and Ray J, the way the liberally throw around the word “career.” So funny, isn’t it?
Ray J claims instead he “literally became a sex object” and he was more than willing to take advantage of his status as the man who gave Kim a golden shower. “‘Mo money — mo problems,’ but I prefer ‘mo money — mo women,’” he revealed. “No matter where I went, it became normal to have two girls that were down. Every man has wanted to be Hugh Hefner at some point and time in his life. I just happen to get the chance to do it.” Ugh. These two totally deserved each other.
Now, for some happier news related to the Kardashian clan, days after it was reported that Lamar Odom‘s father Joe was rushed to the hospital and was said to be “gravely ill”, TMZ can confirm that Joe has left the hospital and was only suffering from a stomach virus. Joe is grateful that Lamar was at his side instead of playing in a scheduled NBA game. “[Wednesday] night [Lamar] stayed with me all night … just kickin’ it and whatnot … but everything is good now I feel a lot better.”
Finally, Kendall Jenner who is planning to skip college to be a supermodel, just released some photos from her newest modeling gig. The sixteen-year-old posed in swimwear for White Sands Australia.
“This was my first professional swimwear shoot and I got to wear the most gorgeous bathing suits and cute coverups… what do you guys think of the pics,” Kendall asked fans via Celebuzz. Actually, surprisingly tasteful and far more conservative than I would expect from a Kardashian-Jenner! See the photos from Kendall’s modeling shoot below!

In an annual Pop Culture Poll conducted by Parade and Yahoo! OMG!, Kim received 29% of the vote to beat out even Charle Sheen as the most annoying celeb of the past year! Wow – um… that sucks, but why am I not surprised?
But don’t feel too badly for Kimmie as she is in good company! Joining her on the annoying list are a few more reality stars, most notably Jersey Shore star Snookiwho garnered 21% of the votes! Donald Trump also made the list with 5% of the votes.
And the news for Kimmie gets even worse as Vivid Entertainment’s Steve Hirsch tells TMZ the company REJECTED an offer to sell her sex tape! “We were offered $20 million for the Kim tape but have decided that we are going to hang on to it … for now.” Which means it’s still available for your viewing pleasure, if you are into that sort of thing.
Days after Kimmie tied the knot, TMZ broke the news that someone was actively trying to take the tape off the market. Many of course suspected it was Kimmie herself, something that now appears not to be the case.
Mr. Hirsch does tell TMZ that his reasons for rejecting the sale were honorable, all things considered. “Although the offer that we ultimately received was substantial,” he explains quelling suspicious that the offer price wasn’t as high as the 30M he was after. “When I realized that it wasn’t Kim it became less appealing. Kim is a superstar and if it were to be sold, it should be to her.”
If Kim keeps annoying the public it seems like her economic potential to earn enough dough to get that tape off the market is going to dry up soon! I’m frankly shocked that Kim wasn’t the prospective buyer – maybe she was hiring someone else to try and buy the tape for her?

Thoughts on the poll? Do you agree that Kim is the “Most Annoying Celebrity of 2011”? Are you surprised Kim was not the person trying to buy the Kim K sex tape?
TMZ reports the mystery buyer hired a lawyer in Tennessee who fired off a letter to Vivid’s president Steve Hirsch. The letter, which was sent yesterday, reads, “I was approached by a private party who has asked us about looking into the possibility of acquiring all rights of the Vivid, ‘Kim Kardashian Sex Tape.'”
The letter continues, “The party we represent does not intend to distribute or broadcast the ‘tape,’ but hopes to completely remove it from the market.”
The “buyer” is also interested in purchasing all of the raw, unused footage (sex tape outtakes) that never made it to the DVD. Perhaps this includes the widely reported ‘golden shower’ footage between Kimmie and her sex tape partner Ray J.
TMZ speculates the buyer might be Kim because they are only interested in the footage that “involves Ms. Kardashian” and not Ray J. And while sources close to Kim refuse to confirm if she is indeed the buyer, they do reveal Kim has previously shown interest in buying the rights to the tape.
This is all the more interesting as Kimmie reportedly pocketed a cool $5 million from Vivid, giving them the rights to distribute the sex tape back in 2007. And thanks to that tape, Kimmie is now worth an estimated $35 million today.
Meanwhile, Hello! magazine has now released more photos from Kimmie’s nuptials and those are below! The British mag score the rights to publish Kimmie’s photos in the UK while PEOPLE magazine got the US rights.
And finally, a clip of Kim’s music video, which was scrapped due to the low interest in her singing endeavor, has now found its way online!
Perez Hilton posted the music video clip for Kim’s single “Jam (Turn It Up)” (the song debuted in March to very poor reviews causing Kimme to scrap the video). In the video, Kimmie is drenched from head to toe in oil. She’s also crawling on all fours and pretty much filmed from behind throughout the video. Perhaps the video is even more embarrassing than the disastrous song. We’ll let you be the judge! The clip is below –

“It was awkward,” a source who attended the lavish wedding which was filmed for E! told UsWeekly. The reason? “There were 100 crew members everywhere,” explains the insider, “and people kept complaining they almost got hit by five camera guys everywhere they went. ” Wowzers!
But there’s more as the insider revealed noise was also a factor for the over 440 guests who were present at the bash. “The helicopters were so loud nobody could hear the ceremony,” the insider revealed, adding that Kim, 30, and Kris, 26, also had to wear microphones for the taping.
And it gets even better as in other to prevent images or footage from leaking out (PEOPLE magazine paid a ton to get the exclusive images) the guests were not only stripped of their cameras but also their cell phones. But don’t feel so badly for the guests as the Kardashian family provided a “hotline number” for the guests who wanted to check in on their kids left behind at a hotel. Ah, the romance!
Don’t feel bad for Kimmie as well as she reportedly raked in over $17 million from her wedding festivities.
Meanwhile, it seems Kimmie, who shares every single aspect of her private life with the public, was actually able to keep something under wraps!
Following reports that she would not be going on a honeymoon with hubby Kris, Kimmie surprised the media and public when she flew out of the country yesterday for her honeymoon! The E! star was photographed above with fiance Kris on Monday afternoon as the two reportedly departed for Italy. They are planning to visit different parts of Europe. Perhaps this wedding wasn’t solely made for TV after all.
And finally, it appears Kimmie will never be able to escape her past, you know, that whole sex tape thingy. First there are reports that her sex tape costar/ex Ray J sent her a text on her wedding day which read: “And to think you really have me to thank for all this.” Kris Jennerwas reportedly furious over the text. While Ray J has vaguely denied sending that text, TMZ does confirm the site hosting Kimmie’s sex tape got a record number of hits over the weekend.
Roughly 2 MILLION people visited KimKsuperstar.com between Friday and Sunday night, which is a huge boost for the site which typically averages 300k visitors per month. Congrats in order for Kimmie?
