Apparently there are A-LOT of women formerly married to A (or A-ish) Listers who are desperate for some reality TV fame of their own! Hot on the heels of the success of Hollywood Exes, TLC – the network that has brought us every wedding show imaginable and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo – is deciding they want to get in on the action.
According to The Huffington Post, the network just began production on a show tentatively titled "Starter Wives," which basically follows the exact same premise as Hollywood Exes. Focusing on the lives of seven women – once married or baby mamas to big names – who will reveal what their lives look like post break-up.
Aaaahhh… love. Enough to warm the cold, cold heart of this soulless reality TV blogger. In celebration of well, some people's happiness, we've decided to put together a list of our favorite reality TV couples. Trust me – that's a lot harder to do than putting together a list of the couples we can't stand! Stay tuned for that one.
Kris Kardashian Jenner’s dynasty is as it should be. Daughter Khloe and her husband Lamar Odom are headed back to la-la land. Lamar, who was playing for the Lakers when his whirlwind romance with the reality star began, has been traded to the Clippers, the team he first played for in the NBA. HollywoodLife.com is reporting that Lamar will be make $8.2 million this year alone!
He and Khloe are likely thrilled as well to be moving back to Los Angeles after living in Dallas where Lamar briefly played for the Mavericks. However, Lamar may be forced to choose between basketball and reality stardom. A source tells the same site that the Clippers “want nothing to do with the circus that comes along with everything Kardashian. They want Lamar to come in without any baggage or outside distractions. … They are giving Lamar a huge chance and want nothing to ruin that.”
The increasingly vitriolic divorce between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries will seemingly never end. Oh, well – at least it’s interesting as they drag each other through the mud with ever-escalating crazy!
In the latest Kris is apparently accusingKris Jenner and Kim of staging her sex tape to make her famous. Hot on the heels of Kim telling Oprah that she was embarrassed of the tape and had no intention of it entering the public eye all while admitting it benefited her career, Kris H is allegedly told possible ex-girlfriend Myla Sinanaj that the Kardashians staged the whole thing.
In text messages Kris allegedly sent to Myla (according to her!) shortly after his divorce – which Kim is hoping to release to the public – Kris reportedly trashed the K-fam and accused Kris J of directing Kim in her sex tape! And, even worse, demanding Kim re-shoot scenes because it didn’t make her look attractive enough! Ok, ew to the millionth power.
Womp, womp, womp. You tried, Kris Humphries! If you were hoping to get to watch Kim Kardashian squirm her way through her deposition, you’re out of luck unfortunately. Unlike her intimate moments with Ray J, her deposition will not be taped.
An insider close to the divorce proceedings tells RadarOnline.com, “Both parties mutually agreed that it wasn’t necessary to have Kim and Kris’ deposition filmed. There will be a private stenographer present that will provide a transcript of the proceedings.” 50 Shades of Kartrashian, perhaps?
“There was concern about the depositions being filmed and then getting leaked to the media. To ensure that won’t happen everyone recognized and agreed to not have proceedings filmed,” continues the source. “However, Kris’ lawyer, Lee Hutton has told Laura Wasser that they absolutely intend to ask that cameras be permitted in the courtroom when this divorce goes to trial.”
Oh good gravy! Those Kardashians will never go gently into that good night, will they? I guess I have to take some of the blame for still writing about them, but what can I do? (Stop writing about them, I hear you) Perhaps today I’ll write about the authority on all things love-related…at least in Bravolebrity world.
Patti Stanger, everyone’s favorite Millionaire Matchmaker, recently spoke with HollywoodLife.com about the whole Kimye phenomenon. Of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s fauxmance romance she exclaims, “This is a good, good fit for her and I hope that Kris [Jenner], her mother, gives the blessing because I think they’ll end up getting married. I really do. I think he has known the family long enough to know what the problems are. I love it. KK babies all the way! I think that they both made a mistake at one point in their life. They understand each other and they were friends first. Friends are the best foundation for a really good marriage.”
