Fans have often wondered why none of their beloved Housewives have been given a shot at the mirrorball trophy (and let’s face it, they looooove shiny things!). Radar Online did some digging and came up with a source who shared that the ladies just aren’t famous enough for the show and the fact that they work for a “rival” network. (ABC vs. NBC-owned Bravo)
Well, I have some unfortunate news, so I hope you’re all sitting down. The Kardashians will definitely NOT be leaving our TV’s anytime soon – or our pop culture lexicon. Despite Kim Kardashian‘s sham wedding (with accompanying very public divorce) and the tremendous negative backlash from the media and the public, American’s favorite famewhores have just inked a $40 Million three-year reality television deal with E!. So, if this doesn’t confirm that Kimye is a publicity stunt – really, I don’t know what would!
Yes, despite petitions, and threats, and absolute proof that their shows are staged crap – they will be back whether we like it or not!
Ironically the numbers for last season’s KUWTK averaged only about 3 M viewers per episode – on par (or below) with most Housewives, but apparently the Kardashians’ scandals and drama are worth their weight in gold for the network; which basically exists purely to broadcast the family’s lives. The deal does not include any new shows! So when Kim and Kanye West start pimping out their totally authentic romance, they will iron out their own deal. Which means more ka-ching!
The less famous and thereby second-rate family members, Rob Kardashian along withKylie andKendall Jenner will receive considerably less. Scott Disick and Mason also get a cut of the profit, but they have a separate deal with the network. You know Kris was trying to insure against any possible break-ups!

Kim Kardashian and sister Khloe Kardashian-Odom hit the Woodfield Mall in Chicago to promote their clothing line they wouldn’t be caught dead wearing Kardashian Kollection line for Sears.
We had to contain the sheer awesomeness of their clothing and accessories in thumbnail size, so be sure to super size them in the photo gallery below by clicking each piece. Be warned, it’ll blow your mind.

Our favorite reality stars can’t get enough of the limelight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Can anyone REALLY “Keep up with the Kardashians“!? If we shared and commented on every story about them in the news on a daily basis, we’d have to rename the site to Kardashian Tea. In an effort to prevent any such name change, we’ll just touch on a few of the highlights of the day.
First up, Kris Humphries reacts to the news that Kim Kardashian wants to enter the political arena by running for mayor. As you might guess, Kris reportedly finds the whole thing laughable, but not surprising. Honestly, are any of us ever surprised by Kim’s attempts at grabbing headlines?
Radar Online’s source shared this week that “Kris was told about Kim’s plans to become mayor of Glendale as it was making news yesterday. He doesn’t watch any of the Kardashian reality shows on E!, but he is telling his friends that he isn’t surprised that Kim said that because he feels there isn’t anything she wouldn’t do as she is so publicity hungry. It’s just ridiculous and sad to him that Kim is so fixated on fame and celebrity. There is no way that Kim would ever move to Glendale though, she complained whenever she had to stay at Kris’ condominium in Hoboken, New Jersey. Kim said that Hoboken wasn’t exciting enough for her.”
Kris also joked that if Kim can land a job as mayor, that he has a shot at the White House.
Humphries, please don’t give Kris Jenner any ideas. You know she’s punching out campaign buttons for her Kimmie as we speak and would gladly shift gears to running her presidential campaign.
Moving on! The media can’t seem to make up its mind on Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom. One day they’re pregnant and the next, they’re not having sex and heading for divorce!
First up, a source tells Us Weekly that Lamar’s father was full of B.S. with his claims that Khloe was pregnant. It’s supposedly a complete fabrication.
Khloe and Lamar are allegedly heading for a split, not a baby. According to sources, the two are fighting constantly and aren’t even having sex, making conception a little impossible.
A source shared with Hollywood Life: “They’re not having sex. They’ve had a lot of blow-out fights that won’t be included on the show. She and Lamar are definitely headed toward divorce. They’ll be done by the end of the year.”
Khloe is also begging Lamar to go to counseling with her and promising that NO cameras will be involved in the sessions.
Why is it when things get REAL, the “reality” TV stars suddenly don’t want cameras around?
And finally, some NBA “experts” weigh in and state the obvious. Lamar needs to drop the reality show drama and focus on playing the game if he plans to continue his career in pro basketball. “If Lamar wants to get back in the game, he needs to keep working out. He needs to lose every distraction and focus on getting back the sixth man award.”
What do you think Lamar will choose? Basketball or a big glass of Kardashian Kool-Aid?
Khloe tried to squash the divorce rumors by sharing a picture of her having dinner with her man. Nothing says “we’re still in love” more than a strategy dinner meeting with the Pimpmomager.
TELL US – WOULD YOU VOTE FOR KIM? KRIS? WHAT WILL THE KARDASHIANS DO NEXT FOR A HEADLINE? DO YOU THINK LAMAR AND KHLOE WILL MAKE IT TO THE END OF THE YEAR WITH THEIR MARRIAGE IN TACT?
We’ll start with the fakest news. Kim has decided that her expertise in sex tapes qualifies her to be mayor of Los Angeles. Considering how many politicians have been in sex scandals in the last few years, Kim might actually fit in better than you would expect. In an unaired clip from her reality show, Kim tells sister Khloe Kardashian, “I decided…I’m gonna run for the mayor of Glendale…but it’s gonna be in like five years.” Kim is confident it can happen because the town is heavily Armenian and so is she! You can check out the video of Khloe and Kim discussing her totally real plans at Radar Online.
In more serious news, a source is claiming Kris Jenner is ruining Kylie and Kendall Jenner’s by lives by not letting them attend college. Do they know what college is? Just kidding! They do know what post-secondary schooling is; their siblings Kourtney and Rob did actually go to school.
The source says:
“Kris is ruining Kylie and Kendall‘s lives by not encouraging them to go to university. They both have expressed an interest in furthering their education but Kris is constantly shooting down the idea. She thinks if the girls go away to school, they will miss their window of opportunity and the public will forget about them.”
Kris wants the girls to get a reality show instead. To be honest, reality TV is more profitable than any college, so making the girls do a television show is a sound business decision.
And finally, I saved the best for last! Kanye re-titled his “Theraflu” song where he name-drops Kim and calls the new one “Way Too Cold.” A source tells US Magazine, magazine, he “has been genuinely head over heels for [Kim] for a while.”
However, he’s quick to point out that he never compared Kim to Beyoncé, like a source once claimed. He told US Weekly, “Come on now, that doesn’t even sound like me,” and advised that fact-checkers should review his lyrics and social media account to verify any claims out there about him. “If I don’t say something in a rap or on Twitter, it’s not true.” I have the same philosophy, so understand Kanye’s pain.
