Kim Kardashian's wedding registry: Hurry up and buy the $195 ice tongs before someone else does!

What do you get the person who has everything on their wedding day? If it’s Kim Kardashian, a series of pricey vases and a clock that tells extra special time (it better anyway, it costs over $1,000), apparently.

People.com just listed what is reportedly Kardashian’s gift registry for her impending wedding to Kris Humphries, and PopWatchers, there are no Pool Party Ceramic Chip Dip sets to be found. I know, I was surprised, too!

Instead, the many baffling items on the registry include: READ FULL STORY

'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' season premiere: It's Klobbering Time!

The sixth season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians began last night with Kim sharing a thoughtful dinner conversation with her new boyfriend/future husband-to-be Kris Humphries. Ignore, for a moment, the cosmic coincidence of a Kardashian girl A) falling in love with someone whose name already starts with a “K” and B) falling in love with a guy who is named “Kris,” just like their mother. No time for cynicism, this is love! Within seconds, Kim and Kris were burping into each other’s mouths. It was like watching a bullfrog mating session. Or, as Kris insisted, “Birds throw up and then feed it to their children. This is nothing.” There you go: It was like watching two birds vomit live bullfrogs backwards and forwards. Season six, gang!

Preacher Harold Camping apologizes for lack of apocalypse, reschedules Rapture for Kim Kardashian's birthday

As we now know, the world didn’t end on Saturday, contrary to the prophecies of California preacher Harold Camping who had predicted the Rapture would occur over the weekend.

Kourtney Kardashian's acting debut on 'One Life to Live': Watch!

Yesterday, Kourtney Kardashian made her acting debut on ABC’s One Life to Live. Watch her scenes below. She played personal injury attorney Kassandra Kavanaugh (“with two Ks”), and got arrested with Cristian Vega (David Fumero), after they each slugged the same guy at the gym. We didn’t learn much about Kassandra, other than she can take care of herself (if you actually bought that punch), she says things like, “Oh snap. This is getting interesting,” and she wears as much makeup as Kourtney Kardashian does when she works out.

There really is no better way to remind us that soap actors can actually act than to make them do some scenes opposite a non-actor. There’s just an ease in the line delivery that we commoners don’t have. But Kourtney gives it her all.  READ FULL STORY

Super Bowl XLV: Best and worst commercials?

Presenting… Your Super Bowl Commercials of 2011, brought to you by Eminem. He LOST HIMSELF in not one but two major ad campaigns this year. During the first quarter, Claymation Eminem quenched his thirst with a refreshing Brisk iced tea; then just before halftime, super-intense human Eminem delivered a cross between a eulogy and a giant “eff you, pay attention” on behalf of the city of Detroit. And you thought he didn’t do commercials.

Meanwhile, Ozzy Osbourne finally had to find out what a Bieber was, Adrien Brody serenaded some crying/orgasmic women (Stella Artois), Faith Hill’s rack is huge (Teleflora), Timothy Hutton is really, really into Tibetan fish curry (Groupon.com), and Kim Kardashian’s ass (Shape-Ups) is ass usual. Plus, so many movie trailers, including J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg’s Super 8, Terra Nova, Thor, Cowboys & Aliens — starring Danny Craig and Indy Ford — Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and a first look at Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger. My five favorite commercials, after the break. READ FULL STORY

Merry (over-the-top) Christmas from the Kardashians!

Kardashians-christmas-card

It’s no secret that I make an effort to keep up with the Kardashians, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I’m really enjoying their 2010 Christmas card. It’s so wonderfully over the top, and to quote the Kardashian clan, I die.

Khloe said on her blog yesterday that her momager, Kris, always makes “it a point to go all out, whether it was ninja turtles themed card, or bringing Santa into the mix, each year she always [manages] to top the year before.” And after seeing last year’s card which featured Ryan Seacrest (?!?), I didn’t even think it was possible. But sure enough, their card is ridiculously glamorous, and the definition of over the top. (Should it even be allowed to have so much beauty in one photo?)  READ FULL STORY

Kim Kardashian rakes in the dough; tops list of reality-TV millionaires

kim-kardashianImage Credit: George Pimentel/Getty ImagesKim Kardashian earned an estimated $6 million this year, topping the list of high-earning reality stars compiled by The Daily Beast. Excuse me while I go die 1,000 deaths. She topped Lauren Conrad ($5 million), Bethenny Frankel ($4 million), Audrina Patridge ($3.5 million), Kate Gosselin ($3.5 million), The Situation ($3 million), Khloé Kardashian ($2.5 million) and Kourtney Kardashian ($2.5 million), Pauly D ($2 million), and Kendra Wilkinson ($2 million).

That’s four stars from E!, four from MTV, one from Bravo, and one from TLC — and I’m sort of surprised that of the top 10 reality earners, 8 are female. Perhaps male stars are less likely to have fragrances, clothing lines, spin-offs, and diet-product endorsement deals? All but two top-earners have books, too, so get thee to a literary (well, “literary”) agent, Pauly D and Audrina! The list only includes celebs whose shows aired in 2010, and whose rise to fame came from their reality roots — so it doesn’t include, say, Donald Trump, who presumably would trump even a Kardashian.

I’m surprised not to see the ubiquitous Snooki on this list. Who surprises you, PopWatchers? Did you expect the Duggars to be raking it in?

Under-Appreciated Entertainer of the Year: Khloe Kardashian? Sam Rockwell? Yvette Nicole Brown? The Avett Brothers?

Sam Rockwell played Justin Hammer, kind of an evil version of Tony Stark, in Iron Man 2. Patrick Wilson was the gleefully sinister FBI Agent Lynch in The A-Team. Both actors were overshadowed by the all the summer-movie bombast. (Also not helping matters for Rockwell: there were an estimated fifty villains in Iron Man 2.) But EW readers (that’s you!) thought that both roles deserve more attention. Now we’re throwing them in the Under-appreciated Entertainer of the Year Bracket Game. You know the rules, PopWatchers. It’s just like the Thunderdome. Two men enter. Only one man leaves.

As we cruise into the second week of this tournament of should-be-champions, we’re discovering that one of the easiest ways to be under-appreciated is to be stuck in the middle of other, louder performers. That’s especially true in today’s TV match-up. Yvette Nicole Brown plays middle-aged divorcée Shirley on Community. Eden Sher plays middle daughter Sue on a show appropriately named The Middle. Over in the world of music, Elliot Yamin came in third back in American Idol season 5 (the year that Taylor Freaking Hicks won!), while the Avett Brothers mix together a whole laundry list of genres — folk, indie rock, folk rock, indie folk — that are practically underrated by definition.

But don’t forget about our beloved reality TV personalities. Rodger Berman tries to manage his wife’s company/insanity on The Rachel Zoe Project. Khloé Kardashian regularly has to set herself apart from her fellow sisters (you know, the pregnant one and the proud feminist).  Click here to check out our entire bracket of 64 reader-picked competitors, then cast your ballot on Round 1, Day 7′s match-ups after the jump.

Kardashian sisters to take on New York in new spin-off series

KardashiansFirst was L.A., then came Miami (bitch), and now, in another move to expand the vast Kardashian family empire, E! has confirmed that sisters Kim and Kourtney will tackle the Big Apple next January in yet another series, Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

The 10-episode spin-off will follow the sisters’ efforts to open another branch of their Dash boutique in New York, but clearly what any Kardashian fan is interested in is the battle royale. I’m talking about Kourtney vs. Scott vs. Kardashian family, natch. This time around, Kim will play roommate with Kourtney and Scott, and the always-outspoken Khloe will pay a few visits—and, we hope, stir up some juicy family drama.

How do you guys feel about another spin-off?

MTV greenlights scripted series about a fame-seeking teen

Bo-BurnhamImage Credit: BryanIf Paris Hilton, the Kardashians, and the Jersey Shore cast have taught us anything, it’s that with the right look, a good publicist, and the ability to ham it up for cameras on cue, almost anyone can become famous without doing much of anything at all. MTV is taking that idea and rolling with it for a new still-untitled scripted series, starring rising comedian Bo Burham, who will also write and executive produce the show, about an American teen fresh out of high school who makes it his mission to become a celebrity despite a lack of actual “talent.”

The new show is the latest scripted series on MTV’s slate, joining the just-finished Hard Times of R.J. Berger , an upcoming adaptation of the U.K.’s Skins, and Teen Wolf, an update of the 1985 Michael J. Fox movie.

What do you say? Will you be tuning into this new pilot? What do you think of MTV’s new scripted fare?
