Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian, Ryan Seacrest, Alicia Keys and a number of other celebrities have been brought back to digital life thanks to the very generous donation of a billionaire.

In an attempt to raise money in honor of World AIDS Day, the stupid/narcissistic celebrities agreed to a digital death until $1,000,000 was raised, meaning no tweeting or facebooking. Kim K and others even took coffin glamour shots to show the public just how serious they are about the cause.

Things however took a quick turn for disastrous when the donations didn’t come pouring in as expected. While many thought the amount would be raised within 2 days, less than $300,000 had been raised 6 days into the charity stunt.

The campaign started to get a ton of negative press and the celebs were starting to feel the side effects as they couldn’t make their promotional/sponsored tweets. Kim K reportedly earns up to $10,000 a tweet. “It’s the worst mismanagement of star power I’ve ever seen in my life,” a source close to the program told the NYPost.

As of Monday morning (Dec. 6), the donations were still under $300,000. And then something mysterious happened as a few hours later, the donations totaled over $1,000,000, raising a couple of eyebrows.

E! news is now reporting the celebs were able to reach their goal all thanks to billionaire pharmaceutical executive Stewart Rahr, who agreed to give $500,000. We’re guessing the other $200,000 came from the back accounts of the celebs.

Despite the major fail and negative press that followed the charity stunt, Alicia Keys, who organized the event, and the other celebs involved consider it to be a major success. “From the bottom of my heart, thank you to all of the fans, friends and artists who stood together for this cause and saved real lives,” said Keys. “I am humbled by the outpour of support from everyone.”

“I am back from the dead! Thank you all so much for your donations and contributions! I have missed u all so much!!!” tweeted Kim K Monday afternoon. While most of the celebs followed the rules and kept their promise, R&B singer Usher did go back on his word as he resumed his tweeting two days ago.

Another source tells the post most of the celebrities are embarrassed. “Some stars thought the money would be raised in 24 hours, and were embarrassed that critics said it proves nobody cares about their Twitter presence.”

In other Kim K news, she is denying a report by MediaTakeOut that alleged she was pregnant by rapper Kanye West. “The rumors are absolutely not true,” Kardashian tells PEOPLE. “I’m not pregnant.” Good to know Kimmy.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? ARE YOU AS DISAPPOINTED AS WE ARE THAT THESE CELEBS CAN NOW TWEET AGAIN?

A few days ago, Kim Kardashian, Ryan Seacrest, Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys and a slew of other celebrities announced they would be dying digitally starting Dec. 1 all in the name of charity.

To get things going for the stupid/narcissistic charity stunt, some of the celebs even decided to play dead by posing in a coffin. See above. The goal was the celebrities would stop tweeting and facebooking until $1,000,000 was raised in honor of World AIDS Day. The organizers promised “everyone will be back online and tweeting in no time” once they reached their $1 million goal.

Sounds like a great plan right? Because surely with stars like Kim Kardashian, Ryan Seacrest and Lady Gaga, the $1 million would be raised within a day. Well, we thought wrong as the stunt seems to have backfired.

It is now 3 days into the charity event and as of Friday morning, the latest donation tally on the official buylife.org website shows that only $183,268 has been raised, meaning it might be a very long while before we see any new tweets from the likes of Kim K. The charity is still over $800,000 shy of their goal.

A new report by TheWrap tries to examine what went wrong with this charity stunt. A key factor might be the fact that the organizers put a $10 minimum on donations. The economy has yet to fully recover and most people might be more inclined to give with a lower minimum.

Another critical error is the fact that the digitally dead celebrities are not able to promote the cause for which they lay dead for, you know, because they are dead and cannot tweet. A look at Kim Kardashian’s twitter page shows her last tweet, to promote the charity event, was made two days ago.

The biggest shocker of it all is that this charity stunt is failing in spite of Kim K’s 5 million followers on twitter in addition to Lady Gaga’s 7 million followers. Guess these celebrities overestimated their clout. This latest stunt might end up costing Kim K financially as she gets paid to promote a number of products and events via tweeter, and most of her endorsement deals require her to tweet about the products.

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.

It’s official! Kim Kardashian is dating Gabriel Aubry confirms UsWeekly.

Despite stating she wanted to give the single life a real shot just weeks ago, it seems Kim, 30, has found something special in Aubry, 34. A source tells UsWeekly Kim and Gabriel, a model and ex of talented celebrity Halle Berry, are the real deal.

“They met through friends and have been dating a few weeks,” says the source. “It’s sexy!” Adds Kim the insider, “They decided to step out together at the game.”

Since being dumped by ending her long term relationship with Reggie Bush back in March, Kim has been linked to a number of famous men including Miles Austin, Kanye West and John Mayer.

E! Online also reports Kim and Miles had a recent date night on Thanksgiving day with a source telling E! that Aubry is the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s “official boyfriend.” A photo from that date is below.

In other Kim news, she is making headlines today for posing and playing dead in a coffin photo. The reason? She is among a group of celebrities trying to raise awareness for World AIDS Day on Dec. 1  by participating in the Digital Life Sacrifice event, in which she’s quitting Twitter and Facebook until $1 million is raised. A pic of that is below as well.

While there are probably millions of women all over the world who are single at age 30, apparently when it comes to Kim Kardashian, it is front page news material.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star graces the latest cover of PEOPLE magazine under the heading ‘Kim Kardashian at 30 – I Thought I’d Be Married By Now.’ Get it? Because she’s 30 and not married unlike her 26-year-old sister Khloe Kardashian, nor does she have any kids unlike her 31-year-old sister Kourtney.

“Is it weird that I’m now the single one? It’s definitely a change for me,” she admits. “I have always been the one in a relationship. I like that role, I want that best friend partnership.”

The single Kim does also add that she feels “powerful” being an unattached career woman. Our open letter to Kim is below.

Dear Kimmy, you’re playing this all wrong sweetheart. Appearing on PEOPLE’s cover to tell your woe is me – I’m 30, still single and hoping to fall in love soon story only scares them away. Telling PEOPLE magazine that you’re loving the single life and aren’t really looking to get married anytime soon unless you happen to find someone really special will have them lining up at your door. Sincerely, Reality Tea.

P.S. – Please stop messing with your face.

It seems Kim Kardashian continues to follow in the footsteps of her former BFF Paris Hilton. First came the sex tape, then the reality show, then the whole being insanely famous for nothing, and now an attempt to legitimize that fame by trying to sing.

According to TMZ, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been hitting the studio with top notch writer/producer/performer The-Dream.  And yes, this is the same Dream that is responsible for major hits such as Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).”

The important question now is can Kimmy sing? A “source” tells TMZ that “Kim’s got a really good voice.”

Above is a photo of Kim, 30, who according to her, hasn’t had any work done on her face other than botox.  Kim attended Heidi Klum’s 2010 Halloween party as Little Red Riding Hood.

TELL US – ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING KIM’S MUSIC?

It seems Kim Kardashian’s ex Reggie Bush was not a fan of the 1 hour finale episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which aired last night on the E! network.

On the finale episode, Reggie was portrayed as a very jealous ex who wasn’t happy that Kim was moving on with another NFL player - Miles Austin.

“I just feel like sh*t. It’s like literally driving me crazy,” an emotional Reggie could be heard saying to Kim, who had him on speaker phone. Kim was later shown on the show reading angry text messages from Reggie which included – “So glad I didn’t buy you a f*cking ring, I mean God, why was I ever considering that?”

Here’s what Reggie wrote on his twitter page early this morning, hours after the finale episode aired -

“Don’t make me expose you to those people who don’t know you…” -Jay Z (subliminal tweets)

I kinda feel like the government right now! Lol! Man if they only knew what I knew about you! Don’t smile in my face and frown at my back…

So how about them Texas Rangers! Lol! (changes subject!!!) ;-)”

Reggie has since deleted the second tweet. Kim’s other ex Miles also posted the following cryptic tweet yesterday – “Can’t knock the hustle.” Kim has received some backlash from fans who feel she shouldn’t have put Reggie’s calls or texts on the show. Here’s what she had to say about that criticism in a blog yesterday -

“I saw some stuff on the internet saying I’ve put Reggie on blast for airing a phone call with the two of us. Reggie and I were in a relationship for over 3 years and we have taped dozens of conversations and iChatted many times while filming, so this is nothing new or scandalous. Reggie is my friend, and whether or not, we are in a relationship, he is someone I care about. With that said I live my life on a reality show and to let you guys into my life, I show as much as I can. This episode is my most emotional and most vulnerable and it takes a lot to put yourself out there the way I did.”

We think Reggie might have missed the friendship memo. Kim is currently in NYC filming Kourtney and Kim Take NYC with sister Kourtney Kardashian. TMZ reported days ago that Kim is now dating musician John Mayer.
