Most successful reality shows gradually evolve into scripted soap operas. Kourtney and Kim Take New York, however, is going in a slightly different direction: It’s becoming a serialized thriller. Don’t believe me? Bust this: The episode actually began with a flashforward, just like in Lost and Dollhouse and that one show about flashforwarding where everyone on earth flashed forward and then spent the whole season talking about their flashforwards. (I think it was called The Event.) At the start of the season premiere, we saw a quick-cut media montage. Everyone was shocked that Kim Kardashian had ended her marriage to Kris Humphries after just five seconds. How could their relationship have turned sour so quickly? After all, they seemed like the perfect couple: She, a beautiful talking wooden puppet who wanted to be a real girl; He, a giant monster apparently created by a mad scientist in a laboratory using stolen cadavers. What could have gone wrong? READ FULL STORY

Tyler Perry explains Kim Kardashian 'Marriage Counselor' Kasting: 'It would be very responsible of her to be a part of this film'
Remember that time a couple of weeks ago when one of television’s other most obnoxious celebrities got a divorce? Unfortunately, of course you do. Yet there was one crucial, ridiculous piece to this puzzle that I had completely forgotten about until today: One week before the implosion of Kim Kardashian’s marriage, the unlucky-in-love star was cast in Tyler’s Perry’s newest film, The Marriage Counselor, playing — you guessed it — a marriage counselor. The kasting was wonderfully, unintentionally timely, and also completely absurd. I’m sold.
Apparently, the irony has been lost on Perry’s dedicated fan-base. Today, Perry decided to address those naysayers directly via a very informative-slash-hilarious blog that explained the reasoning behind the casting. “I could not have imagined I’d be getting all these emails about Kim Kardashian,” he blogged. “I HAVE SEEN THEM!! YOU HAVE BEEN HEARD!! …LOL.” Not laughing out loud yet? Let’s continue. READ FULL STORY
It used to be starlets couldn’t do bridal photo shoots before walking down the aisle for fear of the wedding being called off before the issue hit stands. Now maybe they’ll have to not give cover story interviews about their marriages until at least three months has passed. Kim Kardashian graces Marie Claire‘s December issue and, in an interview conducted a few weeks after her wedding to Kris Humphries, defended their rush to the altar: “We felt like, ‘Why wait?'” she said. “It’s fun to have a partner who understands your life and lets you be you.” She insisted everything was fine between her and Humphries despite tabloids already reporting problems: “I feel like where we’re at right now is the best time in my life,” she said. She proclaimed her faith in their bond: “I’m not worried about him at all,” she said. “We have a lot of trust, and I don’t think either of us would do anything to break that. It makes life so easy. He’s such a good guy; he is so down-to-earth, and it’s such a reality check. He is a normal guy, and I just want to chill out and be normal and not get glammed up all the time. He gets it. Sometimes my life can be really intimidating for people, but he allows me to work and do what I’ve gotta do.” READ FULL STORY
Thank you, Mariah Carey. Not only have you managed to keep us fascinated after all these years (I mean you named your kids Moroccan and Monroe, for goodness sakes) but you’ve come to our rescue in a time of need. You see, we have been inundated with Kim Kardashian over the past few days, what with her divorce from Kris Humphries, her divorce tour in which she talks about her divorce from Kris Humphries, and her eventual reunion with Kris Humphries. It’s exhausting to keep track of, and quite frankly, we’re tired of it. We’re not saying Jessica Simpson didn’t help wean us off our Kardashian konsumption with her pregnancy announcement, but that didn’t come as a big surprise. We needed something else, something unexpected.
So imagine our complete and utter joy when you — dear, reliable Mariah Carey — became the new spokesperson for Jenny and made an appearance on The Rosie Show on Tuesday. Not only did you show up to chat with Rosie looking svelte as ever post-twins, but you divulged all the details, including how 40 of the 70 pounds you lost was water weight. Better yet, you shared with your fans, honestly and refreshingly, about what pregnancy was really like for you. “I had a really tough pregnancy,” you told Rosie, “I was supposed to be on bed rest, but it was so bad that even bed hurt. I learned a lot being pregnant, watching my body change.” Top that, Kim Kardashian. (Better yet, please, for all that is good, don’t.)
Are you thankful Mariah Carey has given us a pleasant distraction, too, PopWatchers? What did you think of her Rosie Show appearance or her Jenny commercial? (Which you can watch below.) Share in the comments section! READ FULL STORY
No matter what your thoughts are on the great Kris/Kim Marital Katastrophe, we can all agree that the fact that Star Trek‘s George Takei — Mr. Sulu himself — chose to address the Kardashian Kalamity by posting this picture on Facebook is very likely the only good thing will will emerge from this Konflagration.
Yes, it’s an old joke, but freaking George Takei is making it.
(Also, we can all agree that Cardassians > Klingons, korrect? Discuss.)

While the glorious daylight savings time provided us all with an extra hour of sleep last night, it didn’t do much to make the evening any better for Charlie Day during last night’s Saturday Night Live. (Oh no, does this mean the Nightman has defeated Dayman once and for all?!)
It’s not to say that Day was a bad host, per se; he just unfortunately befell the same fate as countless other talented SNL hosts before him: Being underutilized and overshadowed. Besides, no one had a worse night on SNL than the Greeks or the Kardashians.
Then again, the ghost of Muammar Gaddafi (guess Fred Armisen wanted to revive the deceased Libyan dictator after all), who kicked off the episode, wasn’t doing too great either. Not only was he in hell, where the FreeCreditReport.com band puts on nightly shows, but he’d apparently lost all track of time. Armisen’s Gadaffi griped, “I got murdered pretty bad last week”, which was only half true. He got murdered pretty bad all right, but it was definitely longer than a week ago.
Which begged the question, was this opening skit really all that necessary? Was Armisen’s imitation of the outrageously controversial figure such a hit with fans that they couldn’t not do it? Wouldn’t something along the lines of a skit about Occupy Wall Street (which had only a single mention in Weekend Update) have felt fresher and funnier? Alas, for presumably his last time, Armisen’s Gadaffi announced live from New York, it was Saturday Night. See for yourself: READ FULL STORY
If you can’t stand the idea of watching another Kardashian being interviewed about Kim’s divorce or simply the use of the unforgivable, made-up word “momager,” then by all means look away. (In fact, look at this instead. Happy place!) But, if you can’t help but be fascinated by the Kardashian saving-perpetually-stunned-face media blitz, check out Kris Jenner‘s visit to Good Morning America on Thursday.
In what is nothing more than a krazy koincidence (let’s give the Kardashians some credit, they have made intentional misspellings much more fun), Jenner was promoting her new book Kris Jenner… And All Things Kardashian when the topic of her daughter’s divorce came up. “Wow… I couldn’t have been hit with anything more shocking,” Jenner told GMA correspondent Lara Spencer, in regards to learning the news about Kim.

Making for quite possibly the worst thing to happen to Australia since those shark attacks in the summer of 2001 and Vegemite, Kim Kardashian made a stop in the land down under on the international leg of her Divorce Tour 2011.
Kardashian, with sister Khloe by her side, visited an Australian talk show where she cleared the air about a few things. Mainly, that her 72-day marriage was not a money-grubbing publicity stunt and she is selflessly not taking time for herself as to not disappoint her fans. That’s right PopWatchers, she’s doing this for us. Watch the interview below: READ FULL STORY
In the last 24 hours, Kim Kardashian and her momager Kris Jenner mounted a double-pronged attack in defense of Kardashian’s divorce from Kris Humphries after only 72 days of marriage. Leading the charge, Kardashian released a statement on her blog yesterday. She defended her feelings for Humphries, her decision to film her wedding for Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and essentially blamed the pressures of the spotlight for her own bad decisions, saying, “I got caught up with the hoopla… and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people.” Then, in a statement about as rich as her $20 million wedding, she asks, “I hope you respect my courage.”
This morning, Jenner sat down with the Today show’s Ann Curry. The marriage “certainly wasn’t a sham, certainly wasn’t for TV,” she insisted. She also denied reports that the family made money by selling the TV rights to the ceremony, claiming Kardashian and Humphries footed the bill for the nuptials, which many suspect were fueled by celebrity discounts and freebies. Said Jenner, “[A]t the end of the day, [money from selling wedding photos] went towards the wedding and Kim had to pay a great deal.” Watch Jenner’s interview and read more of Kardashian’s statement after the jump.
