There were plenty of trickle down effects from the OJ Simpson trial, but the most unexpected one is the Kardashian dynasty. If it wasn’t for Robert Kardashian Sr.’s role in OJ’s defense, this Kardashian culture probably wouldn’t even exist. And on a more personal note, Kris Jenner was close friends with Nicole Brown Simpson – so close in fact that she might have played a crucial role when it comes to a highly publicized piece of evidence.
With OJ’s possible release from prison, he is the hot topic of conversation yet again and Kris is answering some interesting questions about the case that will never not be fascinating.
What were the reality celebs up to this week? Running errands, officiating at Pride Festivals and so much more! First up, Lisa Vanderpump had a busy weekend. On Saturday she attended the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles’ 6th Annual Voice Awards and then on Sunday, she was the Celebrity Grand Marshall (along with Ken) at the Long Beach Lesbian And Gay Pride Festival at Marina Green Park in Long Beach, California. Can you stand how cute that dog is?! Complete with an LVP bumpit!
New Bachelorette star Rachel Lindsay was doing some press for the show and wound up giving away a major spoiler about her season! Oops.
After Kim Kardashian was held up at gun point during that horrific robbery in Paris last fall, I figured that everyone in the Kardashian family (and extended family) would have increased their security. Unfortunately that doesn’t seem to be the case since Scott Disick’s home was burglarized over the weekend.
Thankfully Scott wasn’t home. He was away on a hosting gig in Vegas which was highly publicized which has people wondering if the timing was more than just coincidental. Plus, there are other elements that indicate this break in was most likely an inside job.
I feel like all reality stars hang out, but I never expected there to be a crossover between Southern Charm and Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Don’t get too ahead of yourself here though, the Bravo cast was not exactly hanging out with the famous reality TV family. Shep Rose got held up and shoved at a Costa Rica airport thanks to the presence of Kim Kardashian and her family. Shep isn’t the only Southern Charm star getting involved with interesting situations these days. Thomas Ravenel and Whitney Sudler-Smith were serenading a British woman in the Hamptons.
Both of those anecdotes seem a little too strange to be true, but they really are and I’m just hoping that the Southern Charm camera crew was present to capture all the entertaining moments.
Check out the best Instagram snaps this week from our favorite reality stars. Above: Southern Charm star Patricia Altschul launches a new caftan company. She shared, “Our caftan company will be up and running in a month or so. You will be able to send a photo of your pet to our website which will refine it and print the image on beautiful fabric. The embellishment will be done in India. #chic #pet #southerncharm.”
It’s not at all shocking that Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna want to film their wedding for TV. I mean, why not do it? They already had their own Keeping Up With the Kardashiansspin-off show and we already know they have a baby special coming up, so why not follow the other Kardashians‘ lead and put everything on TV? The fans want to see it and I’m sure E! will be paying them a pretty penny for the footage.
Apparently, this is not a done deal – yet – but we all know it’s going to happen, so I really don’t get the point of any negotiations taking place other than Kris Jenner doing whatever she can to get more money for her 10% momager fee for a Roband Chyna wedding special.
It’s official (again): Kim Kardashian is getting paid much more than she deserves the rest of the world! Well, the reality television world, at least. Forbes just released their list of highest paid reality stars, and 36-year old Kim once again tops the heap, coming in at $51 million. Yes, that is a five-one in front of that million!
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star seems to be raking in the dough not from her reality tv appearances, but from parlaying her image into a wildly profitable Hollywood mobile game, her app (she has an APP!?), social media endorsements, and “Kimojis.” What’s the “Kimoji” for “the world is coming to an end, so I’m just gonna sip on my tea and watch it implode”? Because, I think I need that one right now.
