I'm thinking about using my legal and blogging backgrounds to start a special kind of celebrity-inspired law school. Contracts, torts, even civil procedure could be worlds more exciting if you're studying cases based in tabloid craziness…and goodness knows there are enough celebrity legal spats to provide copious amounts of study materials. I specifically remember studying a case in my wills and trusts class which involved a troubled stripper turned Guess model as she vied for her much older husband's estate after his passing. Ring any bells? I'd even invite Harvey Weinstein to be a guest lecturer.
Of course, all 1Ls would have to takeKardashian Law. Think about it…the class could cover everything from employment to divorce to defamation. Kris Humphries could teach part of the course in his off-season! Speaking of Kris, we've got some news on his divorce proceedings from Kim. Also, if you recall, Kris Jenner recently filed a lawsuit against her ex husband's widow Ellen Kardashian for copyright infringement, claiming that Ellen sold portions of Robert Kardashian, Sr.'s private journals which were willed exclusively to his children. This family is a plethora of legal insanity, and I have more to share with you after the jump!
I am not sure if I know any family that loves famewhoring and lawsuits more than those krazy Kardashians. I think they'd literally shrivel up if they weren't constantly surrounded by paparazzi and tabloid fodder and legal pleadings and vapidness. In the divorce that has drawn out longer than the actual marriage, Kris Humphries will finally have his day in court. However, Kim Kardashian won't be there…she's got perfume to promote, y'all! Priorities. Duh.
In other Kardashian/Jenner news, the family that fames together files claims together (sorry, that was bad). Remember when Robert Kardashian's widow sold his diary? Yeah, that's coming back to bite her in the arse.
For once some Kardashian news I actually feel sad reporting on!
Earlier this week ESPN released a report investigating popular athletes' charities and how they help those in need. According to their findings Lamar Odom's charity Cathy's Kids, started in 2004 after his mom passed away from cancer, has given approximately $0 (yes ZERO) dollars to cancer causes despite raising an estimated millions!
ESPN "found after conducting interviews and examining documents: NBA forward Lamar Odom's charity that promised money for cancer research has not given a dime in grant money to any cancer entity in its eight-year history."
You know one thing I've noticed? When Khloe Kardashian Odom is in the tabloids, it's usually some twisted rumor perpetuated by paparazzi photos. When her sister Kim Kardashian is in the tabloids, she's usually put herself there willingly in a misguided attempt to get more attention. Unfortunately for Kim, it never works out how she planned, and the backlash is usually hilarious for the rest of us.
Yesterday, a photo of Khloe hugging a man who is not husband Lamar Odom surfaced, so clearly the girl is having a scandalous affair…that, or she and brother Rob are participating in a rapper friend's fitness program. The former sounds more exciting though, doesn't it? Meanwhile, Kim is trying to rid herself of all things Kris Humphries before all of her love child with Kanye West is born. While I'm assuming she's trying to garner sympathy, hawking high-end designer shoes and a one-of-a-kind clutch to the highest bidder on ebay doesn't make me feel all that badly for poor Kimmie. Go figure. At least she's doing it for charity…a "portion" of the proceeds go to Life Change Community Church. You know, the church her mother Kris Jennerco-founded.
Oh good gracious. Remember when photographer and personal friend of Elizabeth Taylor, Robert Webercompared the iconic movie star to Kim Kardashian? Yeah, I still don't believe it either. However, it would explain the picture that Kris Jenner just posted to Instagram of her daughter with the caption "Wow #stunning". I will say the majority of the comments weren't very complimentary, but I think anyone is going to get the same treatment if they start comparing themselves to such huge celebrity from Hollywood's golden era. Just ask Lindsay Lohan!
Of course, when Kim isn't trying to forge a resemblance between herself and Liz, she's reminding us that she's pregnant…just in case any of you thought this was a misguided and awful publicity stunt. Surely no one is alleging Kim would do something so low, right? ;)
Rob and Kris were together in Vegas this weekend to celebrate Rob's birthday and to promote his sock line, Arthur George. The two were at Kardashian Khaos yesterday to pimp out the socks and by the look of things, Kris could teach her son a thing or two about how to properly sell a product.
Rob showed up in a t-shirt and what looked a lot like sweat pants, paired with black athletic shoes. What would Kris do if her daughters turned up for a product appearance dressed this way? We know you own better clothes than this, Rob.
Rob stood there looking a little apprehensive, while pimpmomager busted out her pompons and was ready to do a few high kicks. See below the jump…
Kim Kardashian shows off more of her tragic maternity style this weekend.
Kim was spotted with her friends Brittny Gastineau and Simon Huck as they grabbed lunch at La Scala in Beverly Hills, followed by dessert at Pinkberry.
While his sisters enjoyed a relaxing day in the Hills, poor Rob Kardashian was stuck celebrating his 26th birthday in Vegas – with mom Kris Jenner. The mother/son duo partied it up at 1OAK inside the Mirage Casino.

Apparently a television personality is going to start showing the Kardashians some love…although it's more about getting talk show guests than actually wanting to play nice. Chelsea Handler is turning over a new leaf, and she's not going to be bashing the fame hungry family. That's right. She and Kris Jenner have called a truce on their public, two-year feud.
Just to maintain order in the universe, whenever someone backs the Kardashians, another person must bash them. If we don't maintain this balance, who knows what could happen to the planet? In other Kardashian news, some long lost relatives of Kris Humphries are breaking the family's silence on his never ending divorce from Kim Kardashian. His aunt and uncle are opening up on what they think of the 72 day union, as well as Kris' motives for wanting it annulled.
