Those rumors of Rob Kardashian and Rita Ora dating were never really confirmed. Especially since Rob was spotted on a go-karting date with Rihanna when those rumors were at their peak. And they went to the Playboy club as well. Cough cough. And around the same time, Rita was spotted with the very toff-sounding Harley “Sylvester” Alexander-Sule of the British hip-hop pair Rizzle Kicks. So we thought that this was just a passing affection for both Rita and Rob since they were spending time with other people. But that was two months ago and the whole Rihanna-Chris Brown business started so we knew that Rob and Ri-Ri were a no-go. And that Rob and Rita definitely are a go-go! How do we know this? Because they’ve taken their romance public with Rob tweeting the picture you see above, with a simple message that read, “Boo.” Aren’t they the cutest? Another tweet soon followed, with the photograph you see below, attached, saying, “Moms” which looks like something out of Reality Bites. Young love, sigh.

The hot sun, the warm sand, the intoxicating scent of bug spray: yes, the summer time is prime time for hook-ups, both celebrity and original flavor. From the clam-chowder-and-madras-plaid love of Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy, to the surprise engagement of Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger (their wedding is going to be designed by Hot Topic, right?), check out our favorite hook-ups from summer 2012, and wish you hadn’t spent the last three months inside on your computer:
Note to Rob Kardashian. It isn’t a good idea to mess around with people when cops are around. The young K-Dash brother was hanging out in Miami over the weekend when he noticed a paparazzo clicking photographs of him and his group of friends on Sunday morning. He thought it would be funny to run — which obviously looks menacing — towards the photographer to give him a fright. Now this is the truly hilarious part: the paparazzo ran away …. screaming for help. The image has us cracking up. Sadly, the cops didn’t find it as funny.
TMZ has the story and the video explaining what went down. When Rob tried to explain to the scared pap that it was all a joke, after following him into a smoke shop, the police were already gunning for him. They saw the whole incident and actually handcuffed Rob and put him in the back of a police car for questioning. He was eventually released after explaining everything, but it’s got to have been a pretty weird, embarrassing situation. Bet the photographer’s laughing now!

Congratulations to J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff who took home the mirror-ball trophy in last night’s finale of Dancing With the Stars. The duo beat out Rob Kardashian and Ricki Lake for the prize, and J.R. isn’t planning to let go of it anytime soon. He told E!, “I joked about gluing it on the hood of my car and just driving around L.A. Or be like rappers and make a chain out of it and just wear it around! I’m going to cherish this thing every single day!”
It’s also a love fest between the three finalists, so don’t expect an sore loser comments. After the show, Ricki said, “I was the last girl standing! I really kicked ass tonight with my tango. I’m really proud. I’m very happy for J.R. and Karina. They were so very deserving, and Rob and Cheryl were amazing, so third is good in my book!” Continuing the feel-good sentiment was Rob, who added, “I really did put it all out there. It was up to the fans, and J.R. deserved to win. I’m super happy, and I learned so much about myself.”
So, now that it’s all over, we wanted to ask you whether you think the correct person won. Let us know in the poll below.

On the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashains Kris Humphries was shocked -shocked!- to learn that his fiancee Kim Kardashian had already been been married once before. Which is weird because he could have learned this by doing a ten-second scan of his wife-to-be’s Wikipedia page. Yes, despite all the hype around Kim’s “big day”, people seem to forget that this ain’t her first trip down the aisle. In 2000 she tied the knot with record producer Damon Thomas, which ended in divorce four years later. But apparently no one told Kris about this until after the couple were already engaged. One of Kim’s relatives evidently let it slip during a Kardashian family vacation in Bora Bora.
“You were really married? You guys are serious?” gasped a visibly shaken Humphries as they sat around the fancy dinner table. The fellow Kardashian men tried to cheer him up, with some attempts more successful than others. “Kim wasn’t really married,” Rob Kardashian offered confusingly, while Scott Disick lived up to his mega-douche title by saying, “You really thought that you were going to the first?” Charming. Kris was pretty bummed out, moaning “I didn’t see that coming, that hit me like a ton of bricks. What else will Kim break to me?” But as we all know now, he got over it and the two lived happily ever after in the land of Donk.
What we wanna know is, how did this not come up before? Come on guys, communication is key to any relationship. Maybe the K-Kult were keeping the factoid hidden until they could spring it on him while the cameras were rolling. Ratings are ratings, y’all. But seriously, we thought that knowledge of Kim’s previous marriage was just kinda…out there. So we’re not sure who to be mad at in this sitch. Let this be a lesson to couples everywhere: always remember to Google your significant other before you pop the question.

No offense, but why would Playgirl ask Rob Kardashian to pose for them? We’re flummoxed! Scratch that… why would Playgirl ask Rob to pose nekkid for them? We were hoping this was just a rumor but a rep for the magazine, Daniel Nardicio has confirmed the news, saying they’re willing to pay him $45,000 to strip off. Nardicio explained, “While most people assumed we’d be interested in Scott,Â my interest actually lies in the adorable Rob Kardashian.Â Rob is a perfect example of the classicÂ Playgirl model, and we’d be proud to have him join the ranks of other quasi celebs to strip forÂ Playgirl.”
We love the use of the term “quasi celeb” (hello, Levi Johsnton) but we’re not sure if he qualifies for that even. He’s kind of non-famous by association, showing up with the Kardashian sisters on red carpets once in a while. Right? How does that even qualify as “celeb”?
Playgirl‘s totally hellbent on getting him to pose and are even willing to invest in the buffing of his bod. Nardicio said, “I’d bring him to NYC to work with my trainer for a few weeks though, as he looks like he could use a few weeks prep before the shoot.Â If he can get wood, I’ll add another 15 thou!” Nice backhanded compliment, hah. You’re basically saying, we need to get him in shape because he’s not photograph-worthy yet, and we need to chill with airbrushing.
But considering they’re willing to fork out $60,000, do you think Rob will bite?
rnrnWell, that certainly didn’t take long! Mere hours after it was reported that Kim Kardashian dumped her latest football-playing squeeze, Miles Austin, rumors have begun to circulate that the purse-a-holic has found herself a new man. According to the highly-trafficked (but not always highly-reliable) gossip blog MediaTakeOut.com, Kim Kardashian is “dating” Chris Brown, the scumbag poster child for violence against women. rnrnNow, before you prepare to write nasty things on Kim Kardashian’s Facebook wall, here’s what’s up: According to MTO’s “snitch,” Brown hit up Kim’s little brother, Rob, for his big sister’s digits. Rob provided them, and ever since, Kardashian and Brown have been texting (sexting?) ever since. Since Kim is physically incapable of leaving her home without informing the paparazzi of her whereabouts, we are almost 100% certain that the two haven’t gone out on what any of us would call a date, let alone getting to the point where they enter the Bone Zone; if they had, we would’ve seen the pictures. Still, a rumor is a rumor is a rumor, and since rumormongering is one of our favorite pasttimes here at TheFABLife, we thought we’d pass this juicy goss your way.rnrnSo, readers, now’s your chance to weigh in. What do you think of this unholy union? If the rumors were confirmed, would you be so upset that you would stop watching Kim’s show? Or is it time to forgive Chris Brown and move on with our lives? Be sure and let us know what you think in the comment section below! [Photo Credit: Getty Images, Splash News]
