An insider told E! News, “Kim rented out the Staples Center so Kanye and his boys could play an NBA-style game with real refs and Laker girls. John Sally is the announcer. Houston Rockets player James Harden and rapper 2 Chainz are the coaches. John Legend sang the national anthem.” And the cherry on top of the star-studded sundae, Kim invited Justin Bieber, too. #NowItsAParty
E! has added three new reality series, one featuring Kourtney, Khloe, and Kim Kardashian‘s DASH boutiques, to its lineup and announced the return of three existing shows.
Dash Dolls will focus on the employees of DASH. “Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé Kardashian made a mark on the fashion industry with the opening of their upscale DASH boutiques,” said E!Kim made a “mark” alright!Ha! “Now viewers will have the opportunity to follow the lives of the Kardashian sisters’ young, fun, and hot employees as they navigate the hectic life of a twenty-something in Hollywood while representing the Kardashian brand.”
In today’s Kardashian news, the E! network is now threatening us with up to FOUR new Kardashian spinoff shows! What did we ever do to E!???
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, NBCUniversal cable entertainment chairman Bonnie Hammer revealed her genius plan to revamp the E! network, claiming she wants to remove the trashy element from the channel. “We’ll eventually get rid of the more Playboy trashy element, and elevate E! to a fun, exciting and aspirational network,” she explains.
And what better way to clASS it up than by bringing us more shows featuring the ever so clASSy Kardashians! Bonnie makes it clear she has no plans to abandon the clASSy family just yet! “I think it will have its own life expectancy,” she says of the lucrative brand that the family has built, “and we’ll just go along with it and help hone what’s right for E! and what’s not right for E! as we develop a whole other world.”
When you add in Kris Jenner‘s two youngest daughters — Kylieand Kendall Jenner — Bonnie reveals she hopes for “two, three, even four new Kardashian [spinoffs].” Wowzers. There have been rumblings that a Kylie and Kendall show is likely next. In fact, E! is airing a Sweet Sixteen special for Kendall tonight.
Bonnie also insists Kim’s 72-day wedding to Kris Humphrieswas not a publicity stunt. “This was not a stunt. In no way did people believe that this was going to happen,” she says. “I think true Kardashian fans know that a bigger than life mistake can be made easily in their world. Everything they do is bigger than life… it’s just part of their DNA.”
Moving on to Kim Kardashian, who’s sex tape is to blame for her family’s fame to begin with. In a new interview yesterday with PEOPLE, during the opening of The Mirage Resort and Casino’s Kardashian Khaos lifestyle boutique in Las Vegas, Kimmie reveals she still believes in love and being a talentless famewhore! Okay, maybe I added in that last part!
When asked whether she still believed in marriage, Kim answered, “Absolutely. I believe in love, always.” Why wouldn’t she after earning $17 mil from her last wedding!?
Kim, 31, also claims she’s learned a lot in the last year, promising us that she plans on being “a new me” in 2012. So is Kimmie Kakes looking for love again? She claims she is “not looking” at the moment. Riiiight.
“We’ll have the whole family here,” Lamar, 32, told Us Weekly. Also tagging along? Khloe’s friendMalika Haqq as the group plans to spend the next few weeks filming upcoming episodes of Khloe & Lamarseason 2.
“I’m disappointed to leave my home, but I’m here now,” said Lamar, adding that “Khloe is a great wife… She’ll make anywhere feel like home.”

Her younger sister, Kim Kardashian, also seems to have taken notice as Kim reveals to UsWeekly that Kourtney now weighs less than her. “My sister weighs less than I do, and she just had a baby — so that’s kind of fascinating to me!” said Kim, 29, at Wet Republic in Las Vegas Saturday, where she celebrated Kourtney’s 31st birthday along with Khloe Kardashian.
Kim is however 5-foot-3, while Kourtney is 5-foot-1. And what is Kourtney’s secret for slimming down so quickly after having Mason in December? “Definitely breastfeeding helps,”said Kourt. “Everyone says that, but it’s really true — and it’s just being a busy mom.”
This unfortunately gave Khloe, 25, some ideas. “If that’s all it takes, breastfeeding?” said Khloe jokingly. “Then someone breastfeed off of me! I don’t care!”

Khloe Kardashian has married Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom after a month of dating. The duo tied the knot on Sunday evening at the Los Angeles mansion of Kardashian family friend and music manager Irving Azoff.
It is the first marriage for both Kardashian, 25, and Odom, 29, who has two children from a previous relationship with Liza Morales – his ex-girlfriend of 9 years whom he never married.
The couple met at a party Khloe was hosting on August 27th, making their September 27th wedding date their one month anniversary as well.
PEOPLE magazine reports Khloe walked down the outdoor aisle in a Vera Wang gown on the arm of her stepfather, Bruce Jenner, with sisters Kim Kardashian and a very pregnant Kourtney Kardashian at her side.
Khloe’s bridal party included her half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, actresses (and twin sisters) Khadijah and Malika Haqq and actress Lauren London.
The cameras rolled of course, as the wedding will be a future episode of their hit show – Keeping Up With the Kardashians. 250 guests – including the show’s producer Ryan Seacrest, Kelly Osbourne, Odom’s Laker teammate Kobe Bryant, and TV personalities Chelsea Handler, Lara Spencer, Brittny Gastineau and Lala Vazquez — were said to have been in attendance.
