Kim Kardashian wants a star on the Walk of Fame. Does she deserve it? POLL

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

Kim Kardashian's coming out -- as a Diana Ross lookalike

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.


'The Campaign' stars pick their VPs: Penelope Cruz versus the Kardashians?

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

Lamar Odom is moving back to Los Angeles, possibly to begin final act of the Kardashian saga

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.

Kim Kardashian compares herself to the Virgin Mary -- VIDEO

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

Kardashian kover of the day: Notorious B.I.G.'s 'Hypnotize' -- VIDEO

Because last night’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians was a repeat, and because the Kardashian klan are like famewhore sharks (if they don’t get publicity, they’ll die), it’s time for your daily dose of ridikulata. Yes, PopWatchers, reality TV’s first family went down to the Dominican Republic and got Biggie wit’ it.

On their latest family vacay, those krazy kids made a loving homage to the late, great rapper Notorious B.I.G.’s 1996 joint “Hypnotize” in which Kourtney’s baby daddy Scott Disick proves to be a pretty impressive rapper (as long as you ignore the foppish yet unfortunate T-shirt do-rag situation he’s working), and Kim fulfills her destiny to be a booty-toochin’ video vixen. Below, you betta check it before Kim wrecks it. READ FULL STORY

Bethenny Frankel, Lauren Conrad, and the reality of today's entreprelebrities

Bethenny Frankel wrapped her seventh season on reality TV last Monday and is currently preparing to take her claim to the talk-show circuit next Monday. Bethenny is just the latest venture in a mushrooming empire that includes liquor, fashion, and nutrition lines, as well as best-selling fiction and nonfiction books. How did Frankel leverage her exposure on reality — a format that is generally considered flash-in-the-pan and credibility-sinking — to earn hundreds of millions of dollars? Could she have done it on her own? EW reached out to business and marketing experts, as well as reality TV vets, to discover what it is that has taken Frankel from practically penniless to the Skinnygirl. READ FULL STORY

'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' season premiere: Paternity tests for everyone!


The seventh season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians kicked off with a raucous family gathering at the Jenner palace. Khloe was visiting from Texas. Kourtney was visiting from Mars. Kim was visiting from the land where people still care about her divorce from Basketball Frankenstein. When dinner was over, Kim hugged Khloe goodbye. Then Kris hugged them both. “I don’t want you to leave!” she said. Kris wouldn’t let go. She looked so happy, and her daughters looked so scared. If you could have seen thought bubbles coming out of Kris Jenner’s head at that moment, one bubble would have said “I’m a good mom, good mom, good mom!” and the other bubble would have said “Hug centipede, wheee!

Listen, I don’t like to judge anyone’s parenting methods. I don’t have children, and when I do, I plan to hire a penguin butler to take care of them until they get old enough to work the salt mines. But even if Kris Jenner is not the worst mother in the history of humanity, we can all agree that her puppet-master relationship with her children is becoming more Shakespearean every year. The main plot of the premiere focused on the popular tabloid rumor that Khloe Kardashian is the product of an affair. These rumors had been haunting Kris ever since she wrote a memoir that specifically stoked those rumors. READ FULL STORY
