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!

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.

If you were looking forward to another epic, over-the-top Kardashian wedding, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are going to dash your hopes and dreams. Cancel that viewing party.
This week’s print edition of Reality Weekly claims that Kourtney and Scott are in a hurry to tie the knot and make things official before their baby girl arrives this summer. But with such little time and the more “private” attitude Kourtney takes on her personal life, the couple is looking to have an intimate affair (less than 100 guests) with no film crew in tow. I’ll believe this when I see it.
Kris Jenner is reportedly pushing for the marriage. “Her mom thinks it’s awful that she’s on her second baby and isn’t married and she’s been working to convince Kourtney to go ahead and do it before the birth.”
A friend close to the couple says that Kourtney will only consent if it stays a low-key affair.
“She wouldn’t want something over the top or crazy expensive. She hates being wasteful and doesn’t do things just for show”, shares a source.
The guest list will be small, and she doesn’t want any bridesmaids, but will have her sisters as her maids of honor.
“Kourtney just wants a big party and have fun with their friends and family”.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK KOURTNEY WILL AVOID A HUGE WEDDING? DO YOU THINK THEY’RE REALLY GOING TO HAVE THIS WEDDING WHILE SHE’S STILL PREGNANT? DO YOU THINK KRIS WILL CRY OVER THE LOST OPPORTUNITY FOR FAMEWHORING AND CASH?
In today’s not so surprising news, the vapid and self-absorbed Kim Kardashian is still refusing to return the thousands of dollars in wedding gifts she received! But she did make good on her promise to donate the money the gifts are reportedly worth!
Instead of just sending the gifts back with a heart-warming “thank you,” Kim issued a note to wedding guests letting them know that while they won’t get their presents back, she’ll be donating twice that amount to a charity of her choice. I wonder if Kris Humphries‘ parents also got a copy of this wonderful letter?
“I would like to thank you for your generous and thoughtful wedding gift. It has taken me some time to pull everything together but I wanted to let you know that the money for every gift received by me at my wedding has been donated to the Dream Foundation …,” Kim’s note read. A photo of the letter, obtained by TMZ, is below! I smell a publicity stunt from Kamp K on this one!
So, why won’t Kim return the gifts? Because she allegedly exchanged them for Rolex watches. Straight Klass right there! Weeks after she filed for divorce Kim was spotted swapping out the presents (which were never even picked up from the designer boutique where she registered) and picking up some trinkets for herself – including a couple Rolex watches for members of her family!
Kim and Kris received upwards of a $100,000 – $250,000 in gifts and reports speculate they were even gifted a Ferrari! Kris has maintained that he has never even seen the loot, as he was whisked away to NYC following their three-day honeymoon to film Kourtney and Kim Take New York; otherwise known as Kim’s Really-Real Divorce Show.
Despite Kim’s generous gesture to the Dream Foundation, Kris still wants the gifts return to their original sender. Except Kris needs to realize she already cashed them in for more stuff for herself! Kim has a really tough life and deserves it!
According to TMZ, Kris is appreciative of her willingness to donate the cash, but feels that she should be giving back the gifts AND making the cash donation. Why? Because he feels she fooled the guests (and himself) into believing their nuptials were the real deal! I have to say, I agree with Kris! Kim allegedly made $17M off this sham wedding and all she’s shelling out is a measly $200k. Cheap!
Moving right along, Lamar Odom is depressed over getting benched. The NBA star who relocated from LA to Dallas to play for the Mavericks is having a rough go of things down south.
He is “heartbroken that he’s no longer on the Lakers,” a source reveals to HollywoodLife. And Lamar apparently regrets deciding to move to Dallas for his career!
Additionally, Lamar is feeling overwhelmed by several other stressors; including his demotion to the Texas Legends after a season of mediocre playing, and issues in his personal life. Sources report filming Khloe and Lamar is taking its toll on the basketball star, along with Khloe Kardashian‘s fertility struggles, which have been blasted all over the media in an effort to promote their reality show. His father’s illness has also been difficult for him to deal with.
Despite his frustrations, sources report Khloe and Lamar’s relationship is still strong. “They still have a tight bond,” the source explains. Lamar’s depression “isn’t affecting the marriage yet.”
“Khloé has really tried to help while he has been depressed. It’s been quite the uphill battle.” Hopefully Lamar can turn things around and redeem himself for the rest of the season.
I do wonder how much longer they will continue filming their marriage to appease Kris Jenner! Both seem over being a part of the show and Lamar has done very little to promote this season.

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!

The downfall/humiliation of Kim Kardashian continues as her ex-boyfriend and infamous sex tape partner, Ray J, is finally getting his day in the sun. The man who got pissed on in the money making department of their joint venture, is speaking out and accusing Kim of cheating on her first husband with him!
Promoting his new book, Death Of The Cheating Man, Ray J discusses all his exploits with a character referred to as “KK” (gee, I wonder who that implies?) and according to Life & Style KK heavily pursued him while she was still married to ex-husband no. 1 Damon Thomas! Even worse she left her husband because of the affair! “She let me know she wanted to get with me,” Ray J confesses in his book.
Kim alleges she left the marriage because Damon was abusive to her and her divorce documents indicate that, however, it was Damon who actually filed for divorce from Kim!
“She left her husband for me as soon as we started having sex,” Ray J reveals. “We were like animals — sexually free to to try anything, and we did.” He says Kim was always prepared, putting toothpaste on the toothbrush in the morning and hosting lingerie fashion shows at night! #TMI
Ray J recalls KK being very “attentive” but clingy and over-bearing. “She wanted to know where I was at all times,” Ray J writes. “She literally thought I was cheating with every girl I ran across.” Ray J says Kim’s jealousy was out of control and that’s what drove him to end the relationship and ultimately cheat on her! “She started going to extremes to monitor my behavior,” he explains. He also believes KK cheated on him.
After their illicit and raunchy affair and the release of their sex tape, Ray J says he had no respect for his former bed-mate. “I had no respect for her. I wanted more for my life…[to] find a woman that I could actually trust.”
Upon learning that Ray J is releasing all the details of their sex life together, Kim is apparently mortified. “Kim’s putting on a brave face, but she’s furious about Ray J cashing in on her,” a friend shares. “There’s so much that has gone wrong for her this year — he’s just another person trying to humiliate her.” Well, Kim – you reap what you sew and Karma is a biatch!
Rumors had speculated that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians‘ star was having a girl, but Kourtney denied knowing the sex of her baby. We all knew she was just waiting to sell the big reveal to the highest bidder and guess what, OK! magazine sealed the deal! In a sit-down interview Kourtney and Scott Disick confirmed they are expecting a daughter due this summer.
“I am so, so excited,” Kourtney gushed, adding that she wants the nursery to be white and “really pretty.” Does Kourtney get excited? Kourtney says her family guessed it was a girl, but she didn’t have any idea. “Kim’s been saying things to my mom[Kris Jenner] like: ‘I’ll bet you a million dollars it’s a girl.’” Kourtney says. “So when I told her, she said, ‘I knew it!’”
“I even wanted a girl the first time — and then we had Mason and it couldn’t have been any better,” Scott reveals. “We’re very fortunate to have the combination that everyone wishes for.” Kourtney is, of course, trying to put a damper on Scott’s enthusiasm. “I don’t even think he gets it — the whole girl fantasy land of princesses and all that kind of stuff — but I think it will be really fun.”
Mason, 2, knows a new addition is coming, and Kourtney thinks it will be easier for him than dealing with a little brother. “I think maybe it will be better for him that it’s a girl. It’s not as much competition, but instead, it’s just something completely different.” The couple is also keeping mum on potential baby names. “I feel like you don’t really know the right name until after you meet the baby,” she says.
Shockingly, Kourtney reveals she will be taking two-months of maternity leave and staying out of the spotlight during that time. I’ll believe that when I see it. Kris J is probably hoping all the hype will generate more money when the sell the first baby pics!
Finally, the couple who has been plagued by break-up rumors, claims there is absolutely no truth to the gossip. For once, I kind of believe them! “I find it weird that they want to put a negative light on somebody’s relationship — especially if they don’t know them,” Scott says.
“I’m really good about just ignoring it and not letting it affect me,” adds Kourtney. “I know what’s really going on with us, so I just kind of laugh it off and focus on my family and all the great things we have going on.”
ARE YOU HAPPY FOR SCOTT AND KOURTNEY? DO YOU THINK KOURTNEY REALLY WILL TAKE A MATERNITY LEAVE AWAY FROM THE SPOTLIGHT? THOUGHTS ON RAY J’S SHOCKING REVELATIONS? DO YOU BELIEVE THEM?
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!
