Kardashian-Humphries autographed baseball now going for more than $1,000

Back in 2003, a Chicago sports bar purchased the infamous Bartman ball for $113,824 just so it could exorcise the Cubs demons by blowing it up. I hope that’s what the person who’s the current high-bidder to buy the “one-of-kind” baseball autographed by Kim Kardashian and her soon-to-be ex, Kris Humphries, has in mind. A bidder named Wahoopaz is apparently willing to part with $1,025 for the unusual ball, which was signed when the basketball star and Minnesota native threw out the first pitch before a Twins game last July.

Gisele Bundchen explains Patriots loss: 'My husband cannot f--ing throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time.' -- VIDEO

Sports fans, namely of the Super Bowl-winning New York Giants variety, have been soaking in every bit of expert analysis and endless SportsCenter replays from last night’s thrilling (fourth quarter) rematch between the Giants and the New England Patriots. But while the sports world is wrapped up in stats, final scores, and non-stop footage of Mario Manningham’s game-changing catch, it turns out there’s one person who really knows the final, concrete conclusion about why Super Bowl XLVI ended with the Giants winning over the Pats 21-17: Gisele Bundchen.

'Big Brother' pair Brenchel to appear on 'The Amazing Race': Are they reality TV's new power couple?

Alert your fiancés: Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas are going from the Big Brother madhouse to locations like Germany, Paraguay, and Azerbaijan to compete on 20th season of The Amazing Race. (I wonder if Rachel thinks they’ll have to get there by Porsche. Beep beep vroom.)

In case you’re not familiar with the twosome that is Brenchel, here’s the rundown: Rachel emerged the crafty winner of season 13 of Big Brother and is the wearer of many sparkly tank tops, and he is a UCLA medical student and Rachel’s fiancé. Oh, and they are both totally bonkers. That said, they are both tremendously entertaining to watch (and against all logic, actually root for) unlike, say, the genuinely terrible people who appear on MTV’s The Challenge: Battle of the Exes. Brenchel may be annoying and cunning, but they aren’t harmful. Well, maybe just to your ears. Or, all of your senses really. Zzzzzzziiiing!

Heidi and Seal, Aretha, Simon Cowell: When will the celebrity heartache end?

This was the winter of our disconnect.

Despite the general belief that the Year of the Dragon is supposed to usher in prosperity, such has not proven true for some of our favorite A-listers. In the last month, no fewer than a dozen celebrities have announced that they would be buying one-way tickets on the break-up train straight to Singlesville. What gives? READ FULL STORY

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries divorce explained by Taiwanese animators -- VIDEO

The devastating news about the divorce of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries has left us with so many unanswered questions: If those two kids can’t make it in this crazy, mixed-up world, who can? Why can’t I remember what I did 72 days ago? Are you there God? It’s me, PopWatch.

Thankfully, Taiwanese animators NMA, who always explain everything in a much clearer way, have come to the rescue. In just over a minute, their latest cartoon accurately pinpoints every major detail from the wedding bonanza and divorce bonanza, including how Kris wanted Kim to move to Minnesota with him (to wear Viking helmets, apparently) and that he was so caught off guard by the divorce (after she coldy alerted him by spelling out “DIVORCE” in rose petals) that he was (literally) steaming mad. Watch the full clip below. Looks so much like Kim it’s uncanny, isn’t it PopWatchers? READ FULL STORY

Melissa McCarthy's husband Ben Falcone is totally deserving of her

Everybody loves Melissa McCarthy, the Emmy-winning, SNL-killing, breakout star of Bridesmaids. (And EW’s current cover queen.) Well it turns out that her actor and writer husband Ben Falcone, whom she met during their stint together in the Groundlings comedy troupe, is every bit as marvelous and cool.

Good news, Earth: They’ve spawned. (Their daughters Vivian and Georgette are 4 1/2 and 19 months.) McCarthy describes Falcone as the kind of man who will read to his daughter from her favorite princess book every night but change the dreary narrative unbeknownst to her. “The story is written as ‘Jasmine was a nice girl,’” McCarthy groans. “‘She had no life. She was very sad and lonely. Then she met her prince. They got married and lived happily ever after and he ran the kingdom.’ So I’ll be brushing Georgie’s teeth and he’s in the other room reading to Viv and he’s like ‘When Jasmine opened her new orthodontist’s office the prince came in with terrible teeth and she saved him.’ And the next night he’ll be like ‘Jasmine opened up a wild zoo!’ and I hear Viv like ‘No, no, no, the Prince did it!’ And he’s like ‘No he didn’t, no he didn’t. He worked for Jasmine for the next 17 years of his life.’” READ FULL STORY

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' divorce by the numbers: 72 days of marriage equals...

And they said it wouldn’t last!

Okay, so they technically they were right: After a, uh, fairytale 72 days of marriage, Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce from Kris Humphries. (Plan your new Halloween costumes accordingly!) While credit must be given to America’s royal couple for surpassing the likes of Dennis Rodman and Carmen Electra (nine days), Britney Spears and Jason Alexander (two days) and Robin Givens and Svetozar Marinkovic (a reported seven minutes) in the pantheon of shortest celebrity marriages, here’s some other numbers to crunch: READ FULL STORY

Ashton Kutcher's strange recent tweets: What does it all mean?!

When talk of a possible Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore split sparked a few weeks ago, the couple’s silent Twitter accounts only fueled the rumor mill flame.

Since then, people have been buzzing about what they are posting on the social networking site. And since neither party has tweeted anything along the lines of, say, “It’s over! I’m free! So long, famous significant other!”, followers have been chomping at the bit to find anything that resembles a clue about the status of their relationship. Because, what else is there to do? Get a hobby? Psh. READ FULL STORY

'Kim's Fairytale Wedding': Was it worth the wait?

Tonight’s E! special Keeping Up with the Kardashians: Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event was an outrageously elongated affair — and I refer not just to the fact that merely saying its full title would occupy slow-talkers until Christmas 2017.

Despite its two hour length, this evening’s show did not actually cover the nuptials of Ms. Kardashian and NBA player Kris Humphries, who married way back in August. That will be taken care of in Monday’s companion special, Keeping Up with the Kardashians: Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event 2: Electric Boogaloo. This show was all about the build-up. Which Vera Wang wedding dress would Kim choose? Could she have real diamonds in her bouquet (remarkably, not a joke)?  Would she hire Robin Thicke or Christina Aguilera to perform on the big day (remarkably, also not a joke)? The result was two hours of wedding prep porn, which at least meant it was a step up from Kim’s accidental excursion in real porn.

Or maybe not. Say what you like about XXX movies but they rarely feature gruesome close-up footage of a woman having elective, jowls-tightening surgery. (Obviously Debbie Does Dallas and Then Has Elective, Jowls-Tightening Surgery is the exception which proves the rule here). But one of the show’s major plot strands found Kim fretting while her mother Kris went under the knife and whatever other terrifying tools were surgically utilized onscreen after I covered my eyes with my hands and tore out my ear drums with my toes.

Speaking of tools, the show’s running time allowed plenty of space to explore the not-all-that-relevant binge eating of Kim’s sibling Rob who (just in case there wasn’t quite enough conspicuous consumption on display) was seen wolfing down a vast amount of Mexican food with Christian Bale-in-American-Psycho lookalike Scott Disick. Meanwhile, Humphries was routinely railroaded over wedding plans by Kim and Kris and routinely bad mouthed by Kim’s sister Khloe, who was determined he sign a prenuptial agreement. Oh, yes. Humphries is a professional basketball player but it is his wife who is the rich one. That’s how much money the Kardashians have.

And they just keep on getting more of it. The newlyweds are rumored to have made a(nother) fortune from televising their wedding and in tonight’s show Khloe and her husband Lamar Odom discussed their then upcoming appearance in a commercial that was actually screened in the course of the episode’s many, many ad breaks. As it happens, another advert was for the new Johnny Depp movie The Rum Diary.  The film is adapted from a novel by Hunter S. Thompson who once described the TV business as “a cruel and shallow money trench.” In arguably related news, the second half of Kim’s Fairytale Wedding will be broadcast on Monday at 9 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. CT.

Did you watch tonight’s show? What did you think?

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore reportedly at odds. Speaking of odds...

Things are not looking great for the six-year marriage of Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher. Though Two and a Half Men‘s new star has tweeted that we shouldn’t jump to conclusions — “When you ASSUME to know that which you know nothing of you make an ASS out of U and ME” — the tabloids are quoting sources close to Moore as saying that their relationship is teetering. Hence, paparazzi are stalking Kutcher to see if he’s still wearing his ring, Taiwanese artists have tackled the rumored discord, and oddsmakers are even speculating on their future together. According to PaddyPower.com, a website that clearly takes bets on anything, the odds of the couple divorcing before the end of 2013 are a cynical 2/5. Clearly, the smart money is thinking split. In fact, the smart money has already moved on to speculating about Ashton’s next girlfriend. Currently, Scarlett Johansson is the odds-on favorite (8/1) to land on Kutcher’s arm, with Eva Longoria (12/1), Jennifer Lopez (12/1), and Lindsay Lohan (16/1) close behind. The educated gambler in me trusts in past performance, so if I was a pathetic, compulsive gambler, I’d like Courteney Cox (25/1) and Madonna (33/1) as smart bets. I’m not compulsive enough, though, to lay money down on Sophia Loren (90/1).

Are you repelled by the practice of gambling on a marriage’s demise? Or is this the best news Lindsay Lohan has heard since Mean Girls?
