It’s no surprise that Simon Cowell is big on the drama. Whether it’s between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, or even with himself and young Demi Lovato, the master media maker knows that nothing gets viewers like a big brawl. And it looks like there’s another storm brewing soon, as reports surface that Cowell hired music producer Damon Thomas to appear on X Factor, along side Khloe Kardashian. What’s the big deal? He used to be married to Khloe’s sister, Kim. Ooof. Clever casting, or serious slip up? You be the judge.
Kim’s other ex has not exactly been keeping up with the Kardashian’s over the years, repeatedly slamming them in interviews. “She can’t write or sing or dance, so she does harmful things in order to validate herself in the media,” he said to In Touch 2010. And now that he’s going to be appearing as a mentor on the reality show with his former sister-in-law, we’re expecting the fists to fly. Or at least some seriously icy glares. “We’re sure Simon is going to have great fun with this,” an insider told RadarOnline. “You know the tension is going to be unbelievable between Khloe and Damon.” Let’s get ready to rumble…
Kim Kardashian and her impossibly round backside are clearly taking over the world one exploit at a time, and we can’t bring ourselves to look away! It’s been almost six years since this reality star(s) busted out on the scene thanks to the sex tape she made with former boyfriend Ray-J. Then Kim and her derriere landed in more respectable households with the E! series Keeping Up With the Kardashians. There haven’t been any more X-rated leaks, but Kim has literally bared it all in front of the cameras: From, her brief relationships with NFL star Reggie Bush and Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin to her even briefer 72 day marriage to … what’s his name again? Oh yeah, Kris Humphries, and now her six-month and counting relationship with rapper Kanye West. We have even had the privilege of seeing Kimmy from the inside out when she had an X-ray performed on season 6 of KUWTK to prove that her big ol’ booty is in fact real! The 32-year-old has seriously her hand (and rump) in just about everything you can think of. From endorsement deals, to her own perfume and fashion lines, everywhere you turn it seems like Kim and her well-endowed backside are not far behind. So in honor of her 32nd birthday, we ‘re counting down the star’s most bootylicious looks!
“All of the Kardashians love Kanye and they have told him that they don’t care that the report about his sex tape came out,” the source says. “Kris and both Khloe and Kourtney told Kanye that this isn’t anything to worry about, and since they dealt with Kim’s tape it is no big deal.” In fact, they’re even laughing at the fact that the girl looks so much like Kim. “They all joked that Kanye has a type!” HAHAHAHAHA…oh wait, that’s kind of weird.
Call us suspicious, but we have a pet theory about the mysterious appearance of this tape and the Kardashian’s Klan’s uber-chill reaction to it. Read more…
Kourtney and Kim Kardashian have already taken New York, and now they’re more than ready to take Miami! The reality sisters have released a poolside promo video for their upcoming spinoff, set to air this coming January. The bikini filled clip is getting us all hot and bothered, in more ways than one. There’s something sort of eerie and detached about the video, which features the voluptuous Kim diving into the deep end of a pool. Metaphor alert, anyone?
Things get weirder as she slides beneath the water and hostile voices from the upcoming season surround her. Is this a homage to Dustin Hoffman’s underwater isolation in the 1967 classicThe Graduate? Is she drowning in negativity? The undertones of this simple bikini preview are surprisingly dark! Which is funny because the spinoff is set to mark the television debut of the newest Kardashian: little kitten Mercy! The sisters have been seen out and about filming for the new series while bringing the little fuzz ball along. And his cuteness is undeniable. So there you have it: crippling existential despair and kittens. It’s the Kardashian way!
We’re gonna go out on a limb here and say that -right or wrong- a lot of people just don’t like Kim Kardashian. So what’s a uber media savvy woman with a PR problem to do? What do people love more than anything? What is so blindingly adorable that it’ll totally distract from the fact that you’ve turned your very existence into a multimedia brand? The answer of course, is kittens.
Kim was spotted strolling the Miami boardwalk with little sister Khloe and an adorable white puffball of a kitty, called “Mercy.” The sisters introduced the teacup persian cat yesterday on Twitter, but it was so cute we assumed it had to be some new Pixar character. But seeing these photos, Mercy is scarily real and we are totally caught in the vortex of cuteness. Gahhhhhhhh! We’re totally out of snarky sarcastic comments, you guys! Look at it’s little tiny face! It’s big blue eyes! Damn you, Kardashians!!
If you’ve ever had any doubt that Kim Kardashian is a public relations genius, head on down to the gallery below.
Rihanna’s been pretty good about wearing pants lately, considering the fact that she spent most of 2011 totally without them. But the pop star started to slip back into her old ways this weekend as she ventured out in a tiny skirt with peep holes around her upper thighs. Great for that pants-free feeling, but without breaking any indecent exposure laws! Riri and her entourage hit up LA’s Eden nightclub last night, while her infamous ex Chris Brown reportedly partied at The Sayers Club next door. Despite the proximity, the two apparently did not meet up at any point during the night on the town.
Kim Kardashian on the other hand was all business when she stepped out on Friday to a work-related meeting in New York City. Although you wouldn’t know it based on her outfit. Leather miniskirt and a weirdly Victorian see-through top showing off a lacy bra? To a business meeting?! Is this part of Kanye’s wardrobe makeover, or are the Kardashians launching a turn-of-the-century burlesque show? Whose attention seeking skin-flash do you think is the weirdest? Let us know in the poll!
Thanks a lot, Kourtney Kardashian. Thanks to the tales (and images, and video) of you giving birth to Penelope and pulling her out of your womb yourself, two of the pregnant ladies in this office nearly lost our breakfasts this morning. We weren’t pregnant when you gave birth to Mason and did the same thing, but this time you have our full attention.
“She was coming out, and I was thinking, I should pull her,” Kourtney told Us Weekly last month. “With Mason, I had no idea I was going to do that. This time, I thought, This is what I’m supposed to do.”
A bit of research on this topic comes up with a story of how Busy Philipps also did this when she gave birth to daughter Birdie in 2008. I cannot, however, find out if this is a normal thing that is advisable. Things turned out pretty well for Mason and Penelope, though, so we’ll assume it’s cool.
On the other hand, I now have one more thing to feel inferior to celebrities about. I cannot A) imagine letting anyone other than my husband and necessary medical professionals see all of this going down, let alone have my entire family and TV cameras on location, or B) picture myself being able to sit up through the process, let alone sit up and use my own arms to pull out my child. I mean, I already have little use of my stomach muscles. Read more…
It’s a problem that affects every relationship at some point: you made a sex tape a bunch of years ago, and your big mouth rapper boyfriend keeps bringing it up every chance he gets, even spinning a verse about it in his newest hit song. And then your mom/manager gets pissed at him because mentioning your scandalous past is potentially damaging to your multimillion dollar monolithic media brand. It happens all the time, you guys! What do you do!?
It’s a situation familiar to all of us, and now Kim Kardashian is in a sticky spot. Kim’s momager Kris Jenner is reportedly furious at boyfriend Kanye West for consistently bringing the infamous sex tape with Ray J back into the spotlight, after many years of trying to sweep it under the rug. Yeezy made reference to the career making porn in his new track “Clique” and made headlines yesterday by admitting that he would watch the tape while having sex with other girlfriends.
“Kris had stern words with Kanye when she saw that he said he would put Kim’s sex tape on while romping with other women,” a source told RadarOnline. “She thinks it’s a disrespectful claim and told Kanye to stop talking about it at every given opportunity…By bringing up the past, Kanye is making it worse for Kim, but he doesn’t see it as that much of a big deal.” This puts Kim in the tough spot of smoothing things out between her mom and her boyfriend. Oh, and she also still has a pretty embarrassing sex tape floating around. All in all, not a great situation for Kim K.
It’s official: Kim Kardahsian is Kanye West’sBeautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. We know that Yeezy is extremely proud of Kim’s infamous sex tape with Ray J, even triumphantly rapping about it on his newest track “Clique.” But we didn’t realize just how much Kanye was into the homemade porn. Before the two started dating, the rapper apparently would watch the sex tape during sex with his other girlfriends. You know, just to get himself in the mood. The rather icky reports come to us from TMZ, which cites multiple sources confirming Kanye’s oddly obsessive bedroom ritual, which must have earned him a spot in the Guinness Record Book for “Most Time Fantasizing About Being Ray J.”
But thankfully to everyone but Ray J, Kim and Kanye are now Kimye and may be discussing making babies in the near future. Literally! The first part of the season finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians aired last night, and the whole crew seemed to have baby fever. Khloe went to a fertility clinic to help her conceive with husband Lamar Odom, and Kim went along as well. In typical fashion Kim made the meeting about her, and the discussion soon turned to getting her eggs frozen for future insemination. The Kardashian Dynasty must live on! Although Scott Disick is definitely doing his part to thwart their evil plans of reality TV world domination. Upon learning that his partner/baby mama Kourtney was going off birth control for good and wanted at least four more children, Scott looked into getting a vasectomy. Way to take one for the team!
You guys, the Kardashians might be teaming up with Simon Cowell. That’s right, the man who flooded networks with competition shows and watered down music could join forces with celeb-socialites who created an entire media brand despite offering nothing of value to the world and possessing no apparent talent. This is like the Axis power of reality television. TV as we know it could be doomed.
According to TMZ, Khloe Kardashian (AKA, the good one) is in the lead to host X Factor this fall, topping the producer’s short list. Apparently execs are responding extremely well to her screen test, and are rarin’ to pit her alongside judges Britney Spears and Demi Lovato in an effort to appeal to the all important younger demographic. “There’s at least an 85% chance she’ll get the job,” a source close to Cowell reports.
It’s not much of an exaggeration to say that Cowell and the Kardashian’s have changed the face of entertainment. In the past, you generally had to be famous to appear on television. Thanks to these two camps, the theory is reversed. Appear on the box and the fame will follow! Even if you’re just a terrifyingly media savvy family, or a guy who sings Ricky Martin songs hilariously bad. Now they could join forces and…oh god. We scared, you guys. Hold us.
