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!

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!
During a speaking engagement this week, the Kardashian-Jenner patriarch shared with the audience the fact that he’s not thrilled with Kim’s new fauxlationship. “I’m not that excited, but we’ll see. Kimberly and I have had a conversation about them and their potential relationship.”
His wife, on the other hand, is purring at the “new” development in Kim’s life. Pimpmomager is reportedly doing backflips over the potential to extend their time in the spotlight, and feels this pairing will take them all Kim to the next level.
A source tells Radar Online: “She loves that they’re together and thinks Kanye is a huge step up for Kim after her marriage to Kris Humphries. Dating Kanye puts Kim in a whole new stratosphere. Kris was just a basketball player making a few million dollars a year, but Kanye is a world-wide multimillionaire superstar.”
Kim had an obscenely extravagant wedding to an NBA player—can you imagine what Kris J. could do with a rapper’s wedding budget?
In other Kimye news, Kris Humphries reportedly had an awkward moment at the Marble Lane restaurant this week. Kris was hanging out with his sister Kaela when ‘Theraflu’ started blasting through the sound system. You know the song, the one where Kanye admits to lusting after Kris’ then-wife and threatens that he could have Jay-Z fire him from the Nets team. Good times.
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?
Aaaahhh… the Kardashians. Really, who can keep up? Who wants to? Not I! Anyway, America’s chief famewhorians are dominating the news once again with their antics. It’s more Kimye and more of Lamar Odom‘s NBA woes.
Sadly for Lamar, Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban is speaking out about Lamar’s experience with the team and admitting that filming Khloe & Lamar contributed to his lack of focus. Pimpmomma Kris Jenner is not going to like hearing that!
“I do think that if you know you’re on camera all the time, you know you’re on camera all the time. It means you pay attention to how you’re going to look on camera,” Mark told to ESPN, alluding to the fact that Lamar was more interested in seeking on-court and off-court fame than he was being a team player! Reportedly, Lamar is hopeful he will return to the Lakers as the couple has relocated to LA.
Lamar’s wife Khloe Kardashian admits that it’s unfortunate that it didn’t work out with the Mavericks, but she is excited about moving home to LA. “We’re sad that, especially with the season almost over, and we’re not able to finish the season with the Mavericks,” she told Ellen DeGeneres. “But it’s been such an amazing organization to be part of, and to move to Dallas even though it was short, except for those tornadoes.”
Khloe also talked Kim Kardashian andKanye West‘s media-loving relationship and she is thrilled for the new couple, who she believes is a perfect match! “I like Kanye. I think Kim and Kanye have known each other for a long time. I think that they’re good friends and they’re compatible,” Khloe gushed. “I think a friendship is where good relationships stem from. I think they’re cute together.”
And now that Kim is dating someone famous enough for her family’s approval, no one is holding back from slamming poor sacrificial lamb Kris Humphries! “Honestly I don’t know why this divorce takes so long,” Khloe sniped. “I feel like they’ve been getting divorced longer than they’ve been married and it’s like I don’t know why it’s such a long process.”
“I like Kris as a person…I just do not like them together. And I felt like I said this.” Queen of the famewhores herself, Kris J also had some not so kind words for her former son-in-law. According to RadarOnline, Kris is beyond thrilled by Kim’s illustrious new match which has put her back in the good graces of the media – somewhat.
“She loves that they’re together and thinks Kanye is a huge step up for Kim after her marriage to Kris,” a source reveals. “Dating Kanye puts Kim in a whole new stratosphere.”
“Kris was just a basketball player making a few million dollars a year, but Kanye is a world-wide multi-millionaire superstar,” the source continues. “His money and fame are all going to benefit Kim now and she’s going to have all the perks of being his girlfriend, and her mom thinks this is going to be great for her own career.”

“Listen, my mom believes in us more than we believe in ourselves. But she is also our manager and trying to protect our brand. She’ll say, ‘Oh, you’re a little too fat right now.’ If she were just my manager, I’d have fired her right then. You can’t talk to me like that.”
First up, the important news! Celebrity reject, Kim Kardashian can add one more item to the list of why her life sucks. The fur-loving reality hoochie was flour bombed last night at the London Hotel of West Hollywood while promoting her new perfume, True Reflection. Um… so, do y’all think Kim can take a note from her newest fragrance and truly reflect on the embarrassing disaster that is her life? Probably not.
Anyways, back to the flour bomb! According to TMZ, a woman threw the substance at Kim from behind, dousing her completely, and screamed “Fur hag!” Kim was most recently photographed rocking fur at Kanye West‘s Paris fashion show.
The flour got all over Kim’s jacket and her extensions hair. The fire department was called to examine the powder and the police arrested the attacker. Kim decided not to press charges, which was nice of her, and the woman was released. Kim was able to complete her scheduled appearance despite the fashion mishap. Hey, now she has something in common with Ryan Seacrest, who got doused by Sasha Cohen at the Oscars!
While PETA is not taking credit for this incidence, they do tell TMZ they are glad it happened! “PETA has tried everything from polite letters to public protests, but Kim Kardashian has not been moved by the news that animals are beaten, electrocuted, and even skinned alive for real fur garments. Whoever threw that flour may reach her when our polite appeals did not,” said PETA in a statement.
Some are also speculating on whether the Kardashians might have planned the attack to make headlines and garner some sympathy for Kimmie. I definitely wouldn’t put it past these people, as we all know they are willing to go to any means to make Kimmie a victim!
Photos and a video of Kimmie Kakes getting Flour Bombed are below! A photo of Kim pre-attack is above.
Moving on, the marital problems of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are being put under a microscope. Hey, don’t want your life picked apart – stay off reality TV, which is exactly what Lamar’s planning! Apparently, being the subject of Khloe & Lamaris ruining their marriage and he is fed up!
Sources report that Khloe and Lamar are actually happy together, but that pimpmomager Kris Jenner is convincing Khloe that fights and problems equal good ratings. She’s gotta make that money! “Kris is constantly telling Khloe that marital conflicts equals ratings! Kris has convinced Khloe that if it weren’t for Lamar, she would not have her own reality show and that if she wants another season she needs to embellish the conflicts in the marriage because that’s what viewers want,” a friend tells HollywoodLife.
Unfortunately, all the pretend problems are starting to equal real problems and Lamar is disenfranchised with the idea of being on reality television. ”Kris is blind to the fact that Khloe and Lamar’s relationship is suffering because of reality TV,” the source adds.
“Lamar is a pretty laid back person but he has had enough. He feels like a puppet and he has already told Khloe that he is not going to create drama on the show for ratings, in fact, he wants out completely.”
This was also the case with Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick. The two fought constantly on Kourtney & Kim Take New York, but insiders claimed it was all an act for ratings and that the couple is actually very happy and get along great. Sure enough, shortly after filming ended Kourtney announced her second pregnancy, but rumors still persist that the couple is in crisis.
Apparently, Lamar initially agreed to take part in filming because he didn’t think it would be that big of a deal, but with the success of their spin-off show Kris J started pushing things to get bigger and more dramatic. Lamar “never ever thought his life would become so consumed by the Kardashian franchise.”
In order to save his marriage–and his career–Lamar is setting limits. An insider for the Dallas Mavericks is claiming that Lamar’s second job as reality television husband is interfering with this basketball commitments and it might be curtains on his NBA career if he doesn’t shape up! “No one understands why Lamar keeps doing reality TV,” the source tells HollywoodLife. “It’s absolutely ruining his career. You would think it would be clear which career to pursue, but for some reason, he can’t decide. At some point, someone is going to make that decision for him.”
In the meantime, Lamar has decided he is not going to expose their personal life completely; if he wants to be respected as an athlete and a professional he has to draw the line somewhere. And that somewhere is the couple’s on-going fertility issues. “Lamar has pretty much given Khloe an ultimatum that he will NOT pursue any fertility treatments with her if they are taped for reality TV,” a close family friend reveals.
“Khloe feels torn because she thinks it would be good for ratings. She is worried that there won’t be enough of a story line to tape for the new season of Khloe & Lamar. She basically has to chose between having babies or reality TV and fame.”
Khloe has admitted in the past that taping the show is stressful on their marriage and it may interfere with their baby making time, but she has Kris J’s genes and pimping out anything for fame and attention seems to run in her blood.
Which, is another problem for her hubby! “The reason Lamar fell in love with Khloe in the first place was because of her independence, now he feel like she has lost that because she is so entangled with her mom and sisters and the whole celebrity thing,” the insider discloses. “It’s a real turn off for Lamar!”
