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!
Sure, Kim Kardashian is super annoying, self-absorbed, and mind-numbingly vapid, but she sure does post some entertaining pictures on her Instagram. Case in point? The picture above, which she aptly captioned "Bo Derek braids." Let's discuss for a moment, shall we? Ignoring the fact that Bo Derek is likely extremely insulted (and rightfully so), I am so distracted by her make-up. And does that ring say "couture?" Anything but…she looks like she belongs on Solid Gold. Even Kanye West is so embarrassed that he has to hide his face. Oddly enough, I am kind of feeling his gold studded plaid flannel. I know, I know. It's probably just the only thing in the picture I can slightly compliment.
I've got some more Kimmie K. pictures for you after the jump…as well as an update with Kim's divorce proceedings with Kris Humphries. It's neverending. Happy weekend, y'all!
Oh, those krazy Kardashian sisters. If it's not one thing, it's another with that group. Luckily, this go-round, Khloe Kardashian Odom is garnering some positive hype for her reality star status and social media prowess. That's a plus, right?
Unfortunately, Kim Kardashian hasn't had anything positive news surrounding her in ages, and this gossip is no different. Kim and boyfriend Kanye West peeved an entire airplane full of common folk after accepting some preferential (and likely illegal!) treatment from an American Airlines employee. That doesn't sound good at all!
Just because Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have announced that their baby won't be making its debut courtesy of E!, don't expect that to mean they want little Kimye, Jr. to have some semblance of a normal life. I'm embarrassed to say that I fell under that fallacy (just a tad, tiny, wee bit…).
Don't get me wrong. When a couple spends countless hours and photo ops trying to recreate their own version of a famous statute of Jesus (please click here and take note of how unimpressed the bystanders seem!), I am not expecting their kid to attend public school and play rec soccer at the local YMCA. However, in light of today's Kimye gossip, the child won't have time to play soccer/t-ball/ultimate frisbee because he or she will be spending the majority of time jetting back and forth across the globe to multiple houses. Oh, excuse me. Mansions.
A Konvoy of Krazy is pulling into the Kardashian station, literally. Let's round up the K's, shall we?
First, we have Kris Humphries still refusing to budge on his annulment stance, and he wants raw footage from the show to prove he deserves it. Kim Kardashian, on the other hand, is trying to take the sympathy route, pleading with the court that all of this stress could be harmful to her unborn baby. I don't even want to mention that Kanye West won't even be able to declare paternity right away if Kimye, Jr. is born while Kim is married to another man.
So, now on to the fourth K, Kris Jenner! She is yet again denying divorce rumors regarding her and husband Bruce Jenner. Is it Groundhog's Day? We also learn that Kris' own divorce from Kim's father wasn't pretty, and Kris was made to undergo a mental health evaluation! Care to take a gander at the results before you keep reading?
