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

Kimye is so in, which means that Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries (who were never even cool enough to garner a relationship nickname) are so last year. And Kardashian is doing everything in her power to make that official.
People reports that Kim wants her marriage to Kris to officially be dunzo by the time her already-famous fetus (fathered by Kanye West) arrives. Considering that she is due in early July, it’s obvious why the reality star is in a hurry. And so, Kardashian is asking a judge to declare her marriage over. 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
The one-time Queen of Nice has a rather nice gesture for the stars of TLC’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo — she wants to buy them a house.
In a video interview with People, Rosie O’Donnell said that she loves the show, and that she’s especially obsessed with its 7-year-old star, Alanna Thompson. O’Donnell redneckognizes in her a child star from another era, Shirley Temple. “She has a presence and an intellect that goes way beyond her years … I’d love to meet them,” O’Donnell said.
She then says that she wants to buy the whole gang a house, which may not be such a bad idea — the brood is expanding. On a recent episode, “Chickadee” gave birth to a baby girl.
O’Donnell might not have to worry about buying a house for Honey Boo Boo : The controversial (to say the least) show has attracted an average of 2.3 million viewers so far and was just picked up for more episodes.
Only six more seasons to go until they
keep up with overtake the Kardashians.
NBC’s Today show opted not to air live coverage of the 9/11 moment of silence in order to broadcast an interview with Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner. As the only national broadcast network not to air the segment, NBC has come under fire — ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS This Morning, Fox & Friends, as well as several cable networks aired the special.
In New York, the local NBC affiliate WNBC aired the live coverage.
The moment of silence — held at Ground Zero in New York City and at the White House in Washington D.C. at 8:46 a.m. — marked the time of day the first plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center 11 years ago today.
Instead of the 9/11 coverage, Savannah Guthrie and Jenner discussed the finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Jenner’s breast implant replacement, and Kim Kardashian’s relationship with Kanye West. “They are well suited for each other, really, really happy,” Jenner told Guthrie about “Kimye”.

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.

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
When reality stars sing, the results can be totally inoffensive (Brooke Hogan’s career) or surprisingly decent (Paris Hilton’s “Stars Are Blind” — seriously, it’s like a watered-down “Underneath It All”! In a good way!). More often, though, their songs are auto-tuned nightmares and tone-deaf raps, music that makes you yearn for a sweet shot of Adele to take the pain away.
In that vein, I offer up Teen Mom Farrah Abraham’s new single. Is it the worst piece of “music” in recorded history? It’s possible — though Abraham’s got some serious competition from other misguided reality crooners. Let’s survey the candidates, then decide which is the most rotten apple at the very bottom of the barrel:
Farrah Abraham (Teen Mom), “Getting Up from Rock Bottom”
The Lowdown: Knowing that this 21-year-old mother has endured substance abuse, depression, and her boyfriend’s death might make you feel bad about crapping all over her musical venture. But when a song is this dismal, it’s tough to practice the golden rule. Be sure to turn your speakers down before hitting “Play” on the linked SoundCloud file, unless you’d like to suffer from Pounding Eardrum Syndrome.
Worst Lyrics: Vocal effects are applied so thickly that you can’t really understand a word Abraham is yelping. Blessing in disguise?
