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 — Kylie and 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 Humphries was 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.
And finally, following news that Khloe Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom had been traded to Dallas from the Los Angeles Lakers, Lamar recently revealed that his brother-in-law Rob Kardashian will be tagging along to Dallas!
“We’ll have the whole family here,” Lamar, 32, told Us Weekly. Also tagging along? Khloe’s friend Malika Haqq as the group plans to spend the next few weeks filming upcoming episodes of Khloe & Lamar season 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.”
