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? ;)
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.
TGIF! It's time for an update on those kooky (jooky?) Kardashian/Jenners! First up, the kids are expressing koncern over Kris' kocktail intake. Does Kris like to imbibe a little too frequently, or just when her daughters are tweeting? Well, I guess technically if she was drinking whenever her girls were tweeting, she'd never NOT be drinking…
Finally, Khloe addresses the fans regarding Kim's recent emergency trip to the doctor. Girlfriend needs to slow it down with all the traveling and appearances, and she needs to stay out of the limelight. What's good for Kimye, Jr. is good for the rest us, right?
I make my living railing on the Kardashians, but I've never really thought about what it means to be associated with them. Case in point–Lamar Odom has been in court this week hashing out issues with his ex-wife about their children regarding visitation and child support.
More than that, it's weird to see Lamar's ex Liza Morales be in the thick of all things media related just because she happens to have kids with someone who has now married into the fame hungry family. Although Liza doesn't strike me as someone who is bothered by the attention! I'm happy to report that Khloe has yet to weigh in on the legal beef her husband is facing. What? A Kardashian isn't kashing in on drama surrounding her family? I knew I liked Khloe for a reason!
Well, there goes the neighborhood! I'm sorry to let the good people of Bel Air that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are so eager to live in their zip code that no amount of money can convince them otherwise. I guess they don't really need the money…
As you know, the couple spent $9 million on a mansion in January, and rumors immediately started swirling around that they were going to turn around and sell it. Not so. They can't wait to borrow a cup of sugar from Jennifer Aniston, I'm sure!
Here's a question for you…given the opportunity, would you rather spend a day with the peeps from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, engaging in their small town (and often gross) shenanigans or spend a week with those Kardashian Jenners, traveling to promotional gigs around the world and being treated to overpriced tiny rapper inspired wardrobes? I'll give you my answer later in this post.
The truth is, both families have their fair share of haters and media backlash, but they couldn't be more different. One group is constantly looking to increase its visibility and find more lucrative gigs, while the other dynamic happened to feed their five-year-old pixie sticks and enter her in pageants. Now, I am NOT condoning amping up a child on sugar and go-go juice so she can twirl around stage in a dress that costs more than your monthly income; however, one crew seeks out fame at every turn, and the other is dealing with the effects of having notoriety fall in their laps. It's not the same, I don't care how you spin it!
Remember how just the other day I was writing about a source saying Khloe Kardashian Odom was getting axed from the X Factor (even after a professional hosting expert called her "awkward")? If so, do you also recall yesterday when Kim Kardashian promised to be more private going forward? Well, guess what? Apparently neither of those things are happening!
Of course, with "sources" and "insiders" you can never be too sure which side of the story is true. However, Kim flat out told a magazine that she wanted to keep more things to herself…perhaps she was only referring to things that pertain to herself. Obviously, she's more than happy to talk all about her family members' business!
