While Khloe Kardashian is used to scrutiny from the media when it comes to her weight, it seems she isn’t used to criticism about her weight coming from her momager Kris Jenner.
In a new video clip from the upcoming Sunday episode of Khloe & Lamar, Khloe, 26, experiences a verbal bitch slap from Mama Kris for packing on a few extra pounds. But is Kris really concerned about Khloe’s health you ask? Of course not! The momager/part-time pimp is simply concerned about her 10% via Khloe’s endorsement deal with the Quicktrim diet supplement. Kris accuses Khloe of sabotaging the brand.
“You don’t care and it’s very very upsetting to me because I’ve worked so hard at creating what I think is a great deal for you girls and you’re not pulling your end of the weight,” says Kris to Khloe in the sneak preview of the all-new episode. “I feel like you could not chat about how many cookies you’re eating in between meals [to the media]…”
Khloe however gets defensive as she feels torn due to her struggle in wanting to maintain a healthy weight and her effort to conceive a baby with hubby Lamar Odom.
“To tell me I’m ruining a whole brand because of my weight gain makes me feel like s–t. Get over yourself. You’re such a f–king raging lunatic and you’re so evil,” snipes Khloe to mom Kris. “I’m too f–king fat, too f–king that. Do you want me to get pregnant? Do you want me to lose weight? You tell me you want me to have a baby every second, but I can’t be on some crazy diet. I just don’t get what you want out of me!”
A preview clip of the convo is below. The new episode of Khloe & Lamar airs Sunday night at 10/9c on E!.
In other Khloe news, she is getting ready to take a dip into the acting pond. It was announced this week that she will appear on the April 25 episode of Law & Order: Los Angeles.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON KRIS’ COMMENTS TO KHLOE? IS SHE RIGHT OR WRONG TO CRITICIZE HER WEIGHT?
In today’s Kardashian news, the reality tv family continues to contribute to their unavoidable impending demise via overexposure world dominate.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians family – Khloe, Kourtney, Kris and Kim – grace the latest cover of Redbook magazine. In the article, Kris Jenner defends her daughters, you know, against all those awful critics who question why they are famous.
“It’s annoying when I hear, ‘What do your girls do?’ Well, first of all, all of my daughters have jobs. They are fashion stylists and designers; they own a chain of stores. They had the stores before they had the show,” pimp matriarch Kris, 55, tellsRedbook. “And my kids worked from the time they were 13 years old. So to me, that’s a huge misconception that the girls don’t work. They work 25 hours a day.”
And what about the criticism that her daughters are talentless hacks? “They might not be singers or dancers, but they certainly know how to produce a television show,” says Kris. “Whether you want to call it talent or not, they have multiple shows on the air. How many shows do you have?” Okay, so they don’t have a talent.
As for why their family seems to appeal to the TV audience, Khloe Kardashianbelieves it is due to their realness. “We are a real family. We don’t sugarcoat anything. We’re not the Brady Bunch, but we always put each other first,” Khloe, 26, says. “We love each other on camera, we cry on camera. I think people relate to the realness of it.”
Kim Kardashian also insists they have nothing to hide. “There’s nothing I’m really ashamed of, and I work hard on the show and all my other projects,” she states. “I don’t drink or do drugs, so I’m comfortable showing the world what my life is all about.”
And finally, after Kourtney Kardashian issued a non-denial denial via her twitter page back in February following reports that she was engaged to beau Scott Disick, it seems we will finally get the true answer on Sunday’s finale of Kourtney and Kim Take New York . The previews show Scott shopping for engagements rings for Kourt. The reports also stated back then that Kourtney and Scott would be getting their own spin-off.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE REDBOOK INTERVIEW?
“There’s nothing I’m really ashamed of, and I work hard on the show and all my other projects,” she tells the mag. “I don’t drink or do drugs, so I’m comfortable showing the world what my life is all about.”
Kourtney explains her decision to stop to E! News. “I mean, everyone would say, it’s time, it’s time, come on,” she says. “I started to stop a little bit, weaning and all that, and I’m like, Why am I doing this? If I’m happy and he’s happy. So I said, Let me see when he asks me for it—which is like, he doesn’t talk, just pulling at my shirt a little. So I said, Let me see, and he only asked once a night. So I did it and he just stopped. I’m like, I just want to do what he wants.”
In other Kardashian news, Kim Kardashian appeared on the Rachael Ray Show last week with momagerKris Jenner, during which she revealed she actually has some standards when it comes to products she hawks endorses. Who would have thunk it?
“I have said no to butt enhancement pills!” said Kimmy, who has hawked everything from Silly Bandz to pre-paid debit cards. “I’m like, I don’t think I need them and this is just crazy,” she explained on the show. “I would never endorse a product like that!”
Added Kris, 55, (she’s only 55?) “It’s my job as a manager to present them with every single deal, whether I want to or not. It’s nothing about the 10 percent, I swear!”
And despite securing a reality show for Khloe and Lamar, Kim & Kourtney, and reportedly Kourtney & Scott, it seems Kris is yet to be satisfied as she also wants a spinoff show focused on teen sisters Kylie, 13, and Kendall, 15.
“Kendall has her cheerleading, Kylie has her dance class and they have horseback riding, so you never know,” Kris told 42-year-old talk show host Rachel (she’s 42?). “I’m talking to Ryan [Seacrest] a little bit, batting that around.”
And since we’re on the topic of the younger JennerKardashian clan, Kim is under fire today for taking younger 13-year-old sister Kylie Jenner to Las Vegas for the weekend for the opening of the Sugar Factory American Brasserie at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino.
Some are now criticizing Kim, citing that Kyle, 13, is simply too young for a Vegas party. Kylie is also being criticized for dressing older than her age. So we ask…
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KOURTNEY & KIM’S COMMENTS? IS KIM WRONG FOR TAKING KYLIE TO VEGAS?
A day after the shocking report by the Hollywood Reporter (a very reputable media outlet) revealed the Kardashian clan earned an astonishing $65 million in 2010, we now have more details on just how the Keeping Up With The Kardashians family earned that amount.
We reported yesterday that Kim charges as much as $25,000 to tweet about a product or company, while commanding a personal appearance fee of $100,000 to $250,000 per event, and demanding up to $1 million internationally. Below are more detailed earnings of the Kardashians -
- The family splits a six-figure paycheck per E! episode. However, while the show might provide a steady paycheck, it serves a larger purpose of being a marketing platform for their endorsements and best-selling products, which include book, fragrance and clothing lines. Example, “Kourtney & Khloé Take Miami,” focused on the opening of a Florida outpost of their clothing store, Dash.
- Kim is rumored to have signed a seven-figure deal with a Las Vegas club owner for a handful of 2011 appearances. (Kris will not confirm.) “Kim sells,” a nightlife source says. Kim, who now has over 6 million followers on twitter tells THR, “I have a blog that has 40 million hits a month.”
- Kourtney sold her 2009 pregnancy news to Life & Style magazine for a cool $300,000! The deal included multiple stories: the pregnancy announcement, sex of the baby, birth announcement, first baby photos and body-after-baby reveal. (Life & Style declined comment.)
- Khloé and husband Lamar Odom scored close to $300,000 from OK! magazine for their wedding photos. Kris had everything from the Lehr & Black custom invitations to Khloé’s 9-carat engagement ring “donated” for the wedding, promising the vendors massive product promotion that would come from the media circus surrounding the wedding. In the event that an item wasn’t gifted, E!, it is believed, picked up the tab (E! declined comment).
- Certain paparazzi agencies have agreements with the family to stage photos, sell them and split the profits. Example – Kourtney and Scott Disick recently earned $7,500 for an afternoon laying poolside in Cancun.
- The Kardashian Kard, a prepaid credit card the sisters launched in November, gave them $3 for every card activated or sold, 25 percent of fees, a $75,000 advance on royalties and a $37,000 signing bonus. However, Kris quietly terminated the agreement when then-Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal complained the card had hidden predatory fees. The card’s issuer is now suing the family for $75 million.
To round up the interview with THR, Momager/PimpKris Jennerreveals the family has no plans of slowing down. “My fantasy is to have ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,‘ season 26,” Kris, 55, tells THR. “Who knew it would be this profitable? I should have had more kids.“
And believe it or not, Kris reveals she worries about overexposing the family. “We definitely worry about overexposure. We never want to get to a place where people are thinking, ‘Enough is enough.’ ” We take it Kris does not read “the blogs”
So teens, the moral of this story is to stay in school, and with hard work, you too can build a $65 million fortune. Oh, who are we kidding? Feel free to purchase a camcorder, find yourself a D-list singer and have at it! We kid, we kid… we think. Though we do have to wonder if going public with a story like this is good PR for the family, which has started to receive major backlash and criticism from the public in recent weeks.
TELL US – ARE YOU SHOCKED BY THE AMOUNT THE KARDASHIANS EARNED & HOW THEY EARNED IT? HOW DO YOU REALLY FEEL ABOUT A FAMILY “WITH NO TALENT” EARNING SUCH A FORTUNE?
According to a new report, you now have 65 million more reasons to hate the Kardashians.
The Hollywood Reporter via UsWeekly is reporting today that the Kardashian family made over $65 million combined in 2010! It gets even worse better as that amount is more than talented celebrities Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock and Tom Cruise made combined.
And just how did Kim, Khloe and Kourtney make $65 mil? The report states that amount was made from their reality shows, endorsements, product lines, public appearance fees and more. In fact, momager/pimpKris Jenner is being credited for the girls’ staggering fame and financial success.
“My job was trying to take my kids’ 15 minutes and turn it into 30,” said Kris to THR. Khloe Kardashian, 26, tells the mag: “My mother has just always been this ‘Let’s make water into wine’ person…She knows how to take one small talent or ability and grow it into something huge.”
Yes indeed, in 2007, Kris, 55, shopped around a new reality series when daughter Kim Kardashian, now 30, became the star of a sex tape with then-boyfriend RayJ. E! programming executive Lisa Berger admits the network almost passed on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but was convinced otherwise by RyanSeacrest. “It has changed the face of E!” she told THR.
So does Mama Kardashian ever turn down any endorsement for the girls? Kris reveals she said “hell to the no” when a sex toy company that wanted to sign Khloe and husband LamarOdom with a line of “vibrating panties, nipple rings and vibrators.”
These days, Kim can charge up to $100,000 to $250,000 to appear at an event — and even $1 million abroad. She also commands as much as $25,000 to mention a brand in a tweet… All because of a sex tape.
In other Kardashian news, UsWeekly & E! News report that Kim and former BFF Paris Hilton finally buried the hatchet this weekend after years of feuding. It all went down during a Grammys after party on Sunday, when “Paris came up to her and apologized, and said she didn’t want to fight,” a source explains. “Paris said she was happy for Kim’s success despite what reports have said — Kim was sweet and accepted her apology.”
As for what caused the feud, it has been reported that Paris became jealous of Kim once her fame started to surpass hers. Things got really ugly back in 2008 when Paris did a radio interview and referred to Kim’s famous butt as being “gross” and “disgusting.” Paris then added, “It reminds me of cottage cheese inside a big trash bag.” Paris later apologized for her comments.
Meanwhile, sources close to Kim reveal the reunion only lasted about 30 seconds. “There was no reunion at all,” said a source very close to Kim told E!. “And there never was a feud, Kim was like, ‘Who cares about her?’” Ouch.
And for those unfamiliar with the woman pictured above with Paris, it is indeed Kim Kardashian, you know, before not having all the plastic surgery procedures she claims to have never gotten.
Below are more pictures of Paris and Kim aka ‘Kim’s before photos’ -

Life & Style magazine reports that Scott popped the question to Kourtney and she said, “yes!” It gets even better as the proposal and acceptance was all caught on tape for the season finale of Kourtney and Kim Take New York.
“The season finale, which has already been filmed, ends with Scott proposing and Kourtney accepting,” an insider close to Kourtney tells Life & Style, confirming that the once rocky couple is officially engaged. “It’s been really hard for them to keep it quiet. She’s so excited for the finale to air this April so she can finally go out in public with her ring on. She wears it at home all the time.”
Popeater also confirms the story, adding that a spinoff show is already in the works! “Just like sister Khloe and Lamar, Kourtney and Scott will not only get their own show but also a wedding. It’s going to be TV gold,” and insider reveals to Popeater.
As for why the news is being kept under wraps? Life & Style reports, “The family is really happy about Scott and Kourtney’s engagement but they’re trying to keep it a secret so it’s a huge surprise on the show,” a second insider tells Life & Style.
Popeater adds that pimp-extraordinairre Mama Kris Jenner, “the genius behind the whole Kardashian phenomenon,” is currently conceptualizing the spinoff show with E! that will follow Kourtney and Scott on the path to a wedding. It will reportedly be filled with outrageous wedding plans, chaos, dresses, and Scott being a groomzilla.
OK! magazine also confirms the engagement news, adding that the marriage will take place this year and that Kourtney is already looking at dresses!
And this reported Scott and Kourney spinoff will make the fifth for the E! network involving the family. We can’t help but wonder if all the spinoff shows will equal too much for the public to handle.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS ENGAGEMENT & SPINOFF NEWS? DO YOU THINK KOURTNEY & SCOTT WILL MAKE IT DOWN THE AISLE? SHOULD KIM BE KEPT AWAY FROM ALL SHARP OBJECTS?
However, the most dramatic part of the episode came when Kim broke down into tears over her nude images in the October 2010 issue of W Magazine.
Kim appeared hysterical after seeing the nude photos, insisting she was promised something more artsy. “Oh my God, I’m more naked than I was in Playboy,” said Kim, who has expressed regret over her Playboy shoot. “I’m so mad right now! She promised I would be covered with artwork. This is serious porn … you can see nipple. The whole concept was sold to me that nothing would be seen.”
But the rant didn’t end there as Kim got more hysterical while crying. “I feel so f*cking taken advantage of … I’ve definitely learned my lesson. I’m never taking my clothes off again, even if it’s for Vogue,” added Kim. She also revealed she felt taking nude images was taking her backwards and that she had come too far in her career to go back.
Kim however quickly changed her tune after receiving a pep talk from mom/manager/pimpKris Jenner, who advised her to “own” the racy spread. “I’m glad I did them,” Kim eventually said of the magazine spread.
Photos from that W magazine shoot are posted below. In other Kardashian news, Kim and her older sis Kourtney Kardashian appeared on CNN’s Peirs Morgan‘s new talk show during which they were asked about the authenticity of their breasts. Kourtney admitted she has a boob job, as she has in the past while Kim was adamant hers are 100% real.

“Well, they have to get good grades,” said Kris to ET. “They have to show me that they can handle their own show and then we have to talk Ryan [Seacrest] into it.”
Meanwhile, it seems Kendall is ready for the spotlight as she has been trained well by her famous sisters. “Be natural,” Kendall said, quoting big sis Kim Kardashian’s advice. “For the pictures just be who you are, smile, be cute. And then for interviews if they ask you a question, answer it – most of the time.”
No words. In other Kardashian/Jenner news, Kylie, 13, finally opened her own twitter account on Monday, receiving a huge welcome from sister Kim. “My little sissy Kylie finally joined twitter!
