Last night’s Kourtney & Kim Take Miami featured its most shocking images yet. Stay with me here. I know that, in the context of a hyperbolic, compulsively confessional reality franchise like the Kardashians’, superlatives have basically been rendered meaningless. And yet… could any Kardashian viewer, casual or otherwise, ever expect to see an animal murdered, bled out, and skinned? Because that is exactly what happened on the episode cheekily, cruelly titled “See Ya Later, Alligator.” Scott, a pop culture figure as fashionable and questionably moral as Patrick Bateman (one of his professed heroes), got it into his head to slaughter an alligator to make a pair of loafers from its hide. The subsequent gator hunt lasted no less than three segments, probably about 20 minutes total, but it felt endless. READ FULL STORY »

David Lettermans: They’re just like us! The Late Show host knows that he shouldn’t care about Kim Kardashian’s love life — but even so, he couldn’t resist asking the pregnant reality star last night why she’s still technically married to 72-day-wonder Kris Humphries.
And even though Dave clearly knew better — “It’s none of my business,” he said before lobbing one question — he kept pressing Kim for details on her failed marriage even after she answered his first query. Kim, of course, didn’t seem to mind the attention; “I’ve been trying for almost two years now to wrap it up,” she said unashamedly, “but, you know, it’s hard.”
The real reason Kim and Kris haven’t yet gone their separate ways: “He is suing me for an annulment based on the fact that I frauded him into marrying [me] for publicity,” Kim explained, seamlessly verbing the word “fraud.” But her sister Kourtney, who also appeared on Letterman’s show last night, doesn’t accept this explanation — “I think if she was gonna do it for publicity, she’d pick someone that people knew,” she said, causing Kim to double over in laughter. Somewhere, Damon Thomas nodded in agreement.
E!’s most famous family is dreaming of a white Christmas — because white’s the best color for reflecting flashbulbs, naturally.
The whole krew cloaked themselves in snow-colored outfits for what E! calls “the always hotly anticipated production that is the Kardashian and Jenner family holiday card,” which hit the web today. Because the holidays are a time for love and acceptance, I’ll try not to quibble with the network’s lack of quotation marks around “hotly anticipated.” But I do have a few burning questions about the image. Namely: READ FULL STORY »
Grace Kelly. Nicole Kidman. Kim Kardashian? While the reality star isn’t likely to snag a Best Actress statuette anytime soon, someday she might have something else in common with those ladies: a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. At least, if Kim gets her way.
“I think there was a quote where somebody said that reality stars will never get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” Kanye West’s current flame told V Magazine in a voice that, according to writer Patrik Sandberg, sounds like “that of a Disney princess… or a phone-sex operator.” Kardashian kontinued, “So, of course I’m so competitive that I think that it would be a huge achievement and a goal that anyone would want. I would love to break that mold.”
It’s not entirely true that there are no reality stars on the Walk of Fame; both Paula Abdul and Ryan Seacrest have plaques. READ FULL STORY »
The Marilyn thing is worn out. Ditto photo shoots that evoke Old Hollywood glamour. So, what’s a Kardashian to do when she wants to play dress-up?
The answer, apparently: Look toward Diana Ross for inspiration. “Definitely a new look for me,” the reality star wrote after posting behind-the-scenes photos of a Supremes-style shoot with Hype Williams. “She ain’t nothin’ but common,” Jennifer Hudson reportedly snorted after seeing the photos.
How do you like Kim K’s styling? And how many secrets do you think she’s hiding in her hair?
It’s Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’ first anniversary! What would you give the couple?

What a difference a year makes. 365 days ago, Kimberly Noel Kardashian and Kris Humphries vowed to like, love and cherish each other forever in front of 440 adoring guests — and a whole lot of video cameras. A few months later, K Squared renewed their vows on Ellen; days after that, the couple’s four-hour wedding special finally aired on E! over the course of two nights. But on Halloween, Kardashifans and romantics the world over were shocked – shocked — when Kim laid down a bombshell: She was filing for divorce. The course of televised true love never did run smooth.
Ever since Kardashian and Humphries said their “I do”s — and especially since she said “I won’t anymore” — their marriage and its dissolution have been mercilessly picked apart by media outlets. (Including, um, this one.) As with any breakup, only a new relationship could encourage forward momentum; as soon as Kanye West revealed via rap this spring that he had fallen “in love with Kim,” memories of KHump immediately faded.
The weird thing is, though, that Kim and Kris are technically still married. Extended legal bickering means that the ex-couple most likely will not be granted a divorce or an annulment before 2013 — meaning that today is, in fact, their first wedding anniversary. Ain’t love (and the court system) grand? READ FULL STORY »
Presidential PopWatch round-up on Barack Obama: Kardashian hater, SpongeBob lover, and stealth Cool Dad
In the halcyon days of pre-election 2008, Barack Obama wasn’t just a presidential hopeful — he was a bona fide phenomenon. But Obama’s cultural caché came from an unlikely place, at least for a politician. From his exotic background to his youthful, energetic campaign to those shirtless bodysurfing pictures, the Democratic nominee just seemed, well, cool. He took Michelle to see Do the Right Thing on their very first date! He wouldn’t shut up about how much he loved The Wire! He even smoked — which, yes, is bad and gross, but nevertheless is something that a lot of cool people do. No wonder John McCain’s campaign once called Obama “the biggest celebrity in the world.” They meant it as a slight, but like any number of Hollywood hotshots, Obama seemed to simply ooze awesome.
Four years later, the bloom is off the rose. The American people are now better acquainted with the real Barack Obama — and it turns out that he’s not actually the political equivalent of Arthur Fonzarelli. (Or whoever the kids are into these days.) Instead, Obama is a textbook example of an archetype on the rise: the Cool Dad.
In politics, there’s a complex calculus that presidential candidates use when they select their vice-presidential nominees. Mitt Romney is currently going through the process of selecting his Republican running mate, weighing all sorts of tangible and intangible factors: experience, regional ties, photogenic appeal, reads newspapers.
Comedians who play politicians, on the other hand, are bound by no such rules. At last night’s premiere of The Campaign, a comedy starring Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis as rival U.S. Senate candidates, the cast and crew had some outside-the-box ideas for who they would pick to be on their ticket. “I think I’d go with a Kardashian sister just to get the female vote, the popular vote, and the guy vote in one move,” said Ferrell, who plays a corrupt incumbent in the film. “Why pick one? They can rotate. If one of them gets tired or chips a nail, another one can fill in. It would be a rotating running mate system.” READ FULL STORY »
Basketball star and Kardashian-by-choice Lamar Odom is returning to the center of the Kardashian world after an unsuccessful attempt to extend the Kardashian brand to Dallas. After playing less than a season with the Mavericks, Odom has been traded to the Los Angeles Clippers, People reports. This assures that his wife Khloé’s role on Keeping Up With the Kardashians will evolve from “offering inane wisdom while on the phone from Dallas” to “offering inane wisdom in person.” This also assures that the next season of Khloé and Lamar will feature 150 percent more meddling by matriarch Kris Jenner. Actually, now that all the Kardashians are back in one city, we may finally be entering Act 5 of the Kardashian Family Tragedy, which will end with a 15-way Mexican standoff that leaves every Kardashian dead on the throne room floor, and then Kanye West will go over to the dying Kim Kardashian and whisper: “Good night, sweet princess, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.”
Exeunt, pursued by a Bear.

You heard it here first, PopWatchers: Immaculate conception is the new black. On last night’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian revived an old trend by confessing to friends that she is leaning toward artificial insemination if she isn’t pregnant by 40. It was a fair enough statement — until Kim added, “I would feel like Mary — like Jesus is my baby, you know?”
Okay, Kim. It’s real-talk time. Very few things are certain in this world, but I am quite sure that any of us with at least a dial-up connection can confirm that you are no candidate for a virgin birth. Then again, as they say, “From the mouths of babes….” Watch below. READ FULL STORY »
