Your mission, should you choose to accept it, PopWatchers, is to help me put together a 2011 pop-culture time capsule. It’s been a year of change that swept from the lowest brow (Two and a Half Men) to the highest (the Arab Spring). We saw many great people pass on and many more step into the spotlight. With all this in mind, what cultural relics would you pick to communicate this strange and marvelous year to the future? Check out my picks, then add your own ideas to the mix. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Keeping Up With The Kardashians (41-50 of 70)
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.

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
Now that Lamar Odom’s trade to the Dallas Mavericks is confirmed, reality TV fans are wondering what that will mean for the fate of his famous wife Khloé Kardashian and their reality show Khloé & Lamar. While Kardashian was gearing up for a move to New Orleans before that trade fell through, it does appear she’s planning to follow Odom wherever he lands. She has tweeted her excitement to several followers and promised to travel between L.A. and Dallas in the foreseeable future. The E! network, home to various Keeping Up With the Kardashians spin-offs, has kept mum on their specific plans for the couple after this season, but an E! Spokeman did confirm, “Khloé & Lamar is in production now, and the series covers what’s happening in their lives.” READ FULL STORY
Five weeks after Kim Kardashian filed for divorce, her estranged husband Kris Humphries finally broke his silence today on Good Morning America. “For me, it’s just certain things happen in life and you’ve got to move forward,” he said. The former New Jersey Nets forward, who became a free agent this year, attempted to stay on point while he spoke about looking for a team, working with his foundation, and letting “other things… take care of themselves.”
Humphries refused to directly answer the question of whether he still loves Kardashian, saying, “I’m focused on things I can control.” All told, he approached talk of his 72-day marriage delicately, refusing to blame reality TV for the split. “I can’t say for sure” what impact cameras had on the relationship, he said. “It’s the only time I’ve been married.” One thing’s for sure, though, he won’t be watching himself on this season of Kim & Kourtney Take New York: “The only things I only watch on TV of myself is playing basketball.” See Humphries’ full interview below.

Though Harold Camping turned out to be wrong — twice! — 2011 wasn’t a banner year for humanity. Just look at the most-searched online terms, according to Bing: Hurricane Irene (No. 3 Most Searched News Story), Japan earthquake (No. 4), Amy Winehouse’s death (No. 5). Sitting at No. 1 is no surprise to Nancy Grace: the Casey Anthony trial. It really can’t compete with natural disasters for true tragedy, but if you’re in the mood to lament our civilization, you can’t really do better than our universal obsession with the Anthony trial.
If there’s a silver lining, it’s that we cared much less about Kate Gosselin and Jesse James this year compared to 2010. Of course, they were replaced on the Most Searched Person list by Lindsay Lohan and Megan Fox. (Megan Fox? Really? In 2011?) READ FULL STORY
Reality star and all-around important person Kim Kardashian is as fickle with her romantic notions as baby Mason is with shoes, so let us briefly recap. A year ago, Kim klaimed that she would remain happily single for an entire year. In May, she broke that promise when she became engaged to NBA-player-slash-fart-enthusiast Kris Humphries. Finally, after quietly marrying in a tasteful ceremony last August, Kim shocked planet Earth by filing for divorce 72 days later. This was a lot for one mere Kardashian to handle, so Kim invited sisters Kourtney and Khloé to her intimate post-game tête-à-tête with Glamour magazine. On the topic of love, marriage, and her possibly permanently empty womb, here’s what Kim (and Khloé) had to say: READ FULL STORY
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.
