In an essay for this week’s Sports Illustrated, writer Jack McCallum discusses the outpouring of vitriol for Kris Humphries — who was recently named the NBA’s most disliked player — in the wake of his 72-day marriage to Kim Kardashian. McCallum asserts that fans, who’ve taken to heckling Humphries with cardboard cutouts of his ex during his games, are choosing Kardashian over the Nets forward and urges his readers, “to plant your flag on the correct side in this culture war, which is not the Kardashian side.” With all due respect to McCallum, I’m not so sure basketball fans are taking sides at all in this sideshow.

Kris Humphries began last night’s episode of Kopeland and Kukaracha Go Boating by ordering a Gray Goose Gimlet and announcing to his loving soon-to-be-ex-wife that he’d been offered a significant cash sum to “Make an appearance in Toronto.” Kim-Kim vetoed the idea. She had big plans for the weekend. Or maybe it was the middle of the week. Maybe, when the Kardashian women were little girls, their mother gave them specialized calendars, where Saturday followed Tuesday, and Christmas came twice a year. and there was an eighth day of the week called Krisday, and Wednesday was spelled “Wennsday.” Kim and Kourtney wanted to flee the hustle and bustle of New York City for the freakish quiet of Mystic, Conn.

The Sense About Science (SAS) campaign has named Jersey Shore doctor of grain liquor Snooki and Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann as two of 2011′s worst offenders of Bad Science. Bachmann went on TV to tell a story of a Tampa woman who claimed her daughter had become “mentally retarded” from an HPV vaccine, and Snooki — well, Snooki’s sort of a science experiment gone wrong in so many (and some delightful) ways that I’d like to give her scientific claim its own paragraph. Let it breathe a little, like seamen amidst a gust of sea air.
“I don’t really like the beach. I hate sharks, and the water’s all whale sperm. That’s why the ocean’s salty.”
The untethered inclusion of “I hate sharks” in there is almost poetic. Think about it for a few seconds. NO, I’m just kidding, don’t hurt yourselves. READ FULL STORY
It appears that self-promotion is nothing new for our favorite Kardashian matriarch, Kris Jenner, as a video has surfaced that shows her cruising around L.A. in the 80s, singing about her friends for her 30th birthday to the tune of Randy Newman’s I Love LA. The video was posted to YouTube in August, but is gaining some traction in a slow news week. Check out the video after the jump and add some vintage Kardashian (and even O.J. Simpson!) to your holiday.

Workers’ rights organization China Labor Watch has just published a damning investigative report into a pair of factories in China, where working conditions apparently resembled an Upton Sinclair/Triangle Shirtwaist nightmare vision of proletariat misery. The report alleges that clothing designer Bebe had products manufactured in the sweatshops… including a line of clothing, handbags, and jewelry that were part of the “K-Dash by Kardashian” brand. If these allegations are true, then the Kardashians would enter the rarified class of businesspeople who have happily availed themselves of the curiously unsympathetic labor ethics endemic to our beloved People’s Republic. (To be fair, I also just described Steve Jobs, Michael Jordan, and every single major entrepreneur of the modern age, besides maybe the toolbox who runs American Apparel. This is a horrible world.)

Kris Humphries isn’t exactly a big star in an NBA galaxy full of LeBrons and Kobes, but he’s being treated like one because of his off-the-court profile. When the New Jersey Nets forward took the court last night to face the New York Knicks in an exhibition game, the Madison Square Garden crowd greeted him with boos and heckled him every time he touched the ball. The crowd had so much fun taunting him that when he sat on the bench, they pleaded for more, chanting, “We want Humphries! We want Humphries!”
This wasn’t an isolated incident. According to a new Forbes.com fan poll, Humphries has surpassed LeBron James as the most disliked player in the league, a somewhat surprising showing for a non-superstar like Humphries. READ FULL STORY
Tired Hooker, the title of Kathy Griffin’s latest stand-up special, does not in fact refer to Kim Kardashian, though Griffin didn’t pull any punches when she addressed the soon-to-be-twice-divorced socialite in last night’s set. Griffin made no bones about the fact that she’d been joking about Kim Kardashian’s fairy-tale wedding less than three months before. Since we all know how that turned out, Griffin had plenty to say, including taking the accusation that the marriage was a profit-fueled fraud to the next level. Watch her diatribe here.
Later in the special, Griffin dusted of her vapid KK voice as she dismissively read from Kardashian’s Nov. 1 letter explaining the split from Kris Humphries to her fans. She also shared tidbits from her Nov. 2 run-in with Kris Jenner on morning TV. Long story short, Griffin won’t be easing up on the First Family of Reality TV any time soon. Watch a clip below: READ FULL STORY
Oh boy, this was yet another exciting episode of Kanakaredes and Ghostface Killah Prank New South Wales! “Exciting”is a synonym for “miserable,” right? Anyhow, the episode began with Li’l Kim and Big Hump having a charming little marital squabble. Kris wanted to throw a party in their lavish suite while Kim traveled to Los Angeles. Kim vetoed the idea. He insisted. She began crawling all over him, looking for all the world like a Jack ascending the beanstalk. She kicked his leg. He put his gigantic Frankenstein hands all over her Pinocchio face. “Stop it, stop it!” said Scott, “You’re both killing one another’s careers right now! Her face! Your legs!” This marriage can’t fail. (Spoiler alert: It failed.)
