'Reality' check: Which has a longer shelf life -- frozen meat or a Kardashian 'I do'?

For a Hollywood marriage, Kim Kardashian’s 72 days of matrimonial miss were downright average. What’s more, groom Kris Humphries bested fellow NBA star Dennis Rodman by 800 percent, which is an old-fashioned butt kicking if you ask any statistician. But where does this soon-to-be-dissolved union stack against real world quantities? Keep reading…  READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Kimmel joins the Kim Kardashian peanut gallery -- appropriately, in a monkey suit

On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, the comedian performed his civic duty and addressed the news of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’ split. “I thought they’d be together for at least another five to 10 Us Weekly covers,” quipped the funnyman. “I wonder what happens to that 20-karat engagement ring he gave her,” added Kimmel. “You know, if nobody’s using it, I bet it would look great in my belly button.”

Admitting that he was sucked in by “all 11 hours” of Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event, Kimmel gave snarky kudos to the industrious story spinners at E! before airing the (totally fake) promo for the channel’s next special: Kim & Kris Kall It Kwits. See Kimmel betray his fellow K-named kinsmen after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Ripa'd from the airwaves? Kelly and Nick Lachey dress as Kim and Kris as E! faces a tough 'Fairytale Wedding' decision

Savor the image to the right, Kardashi-fans. It may be your last chance to see Kim Kardashian in her Hepburn-inspired wedding gown. Fresh off the news that Kardashian has filed for divorce from Kris Humphries, her husband of 72 days due to “irreconcilable differences,” E! (home to Keeping Up With the Kardashians) is considering pulling all repeats of their four-hour, two-part marital spectacular Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event from the air. And in other news from the bizarro land that results from the collision of reality with “reality,” Kelly Ripa and Nick Lachey dressed up as the presumably happy couple for this morning’s Live! Halloween show just an hour before the divorce was confirmed. See Ripa and Lachey’s unfortunate (but hilarious) costume and learn more about E!’s programming quandary after the jump. READ FULL STORY

'Kim's Fairytale Wedding': Part 2 included an actual wedding...barely!

Last night, the final two hours of Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event aired. And if you managed to sit through three hours and 33 minutes, you were finally rewarded with an actual wedding. But more on that later.

E! packed even more wedding prep into last night’s special leading up to the actual nuptials. Seating charts, catering menus, a bridal shower, and bachelor and bachelorette parties Vegas style. All of which had Kim making this important life observation: “I don’t know how Elizabeth Taylor got married so many times!” So really, part 2 was just a continuation of part 1. But with the wedding right around the corner, Kim finally answered some of the important questions brought up in Sunday’s special. Which Vera Wang wedding dress would she choose? Why choose just one? Let’s go with three. Would she hire Robin Thicke or Christina Aguilera to perform on the big day? Mr. Thicke won the job and was seen serenading the newlyweds during their first dance. Also seen: Rob Kardashian showing off his pre-Dancing with the Stars moves. READ FULL STORY

'Kim's Fairytale Wedding': Was it worth the wait?

Tonight’s E! special Keeping Up with the Kardashians: Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event was an outrageously elongated affair — and I refer not just to the fact that merely saying its full title would occupy slow-talkers until Christmas 2017.

Despite its two hour length, this evening’s show did not actually cover the nuptials of Ms. Kardashian and NBA player Kris Humphries, who married way back in August. That will be taken care of in Monday’s companion special, Keeping Up with the Kardashians: Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event 2: Electric Boogaloo. This show was all about the build-up. Which Vera Wang wedding dress would Kim choose? Could she have real diamonds in her bouquet (remarkably, not a joke)?  Would she hire Robin Thicke or Christina Aguilera to perform on the big day (remarkably, also not a joke)? The result was two hours of wedding prep porn, which at least meant it was a step up from Kim’s accidental excursion in real porn.

Or maybe not. Say what you like about XXX movies but they rarely feature gruesome close-up footage of a woman having elective, jowls-tightening surgery. (Obviously Debbie Does Dallas and Then Has Elective, Jowls-Tightening Surgery is the exception which proves the rule here). But one of the show’s major plot strands found Kim fretting while her mother Kris went under the knife and whatever other terrifying tools were surgically utilized onscreen after I covered my eyes with my hands and tore out my ear drums with my toes.

Speaking of tools, the show’s running time allowed plenty of space to explore the not-all-that-relevant binge eating of Kim’s sibling Rob who (just in case there wasn’t quite enough conspicuous consumption on display) was seen wolfing down a vast amount of Mexican food with Christian Bale-in-American-Psycho lookalike Scott Disick. Meanwhile, Humphries was routinely railroaded over wedding plans by Kim and Kris and routinely bad mouthed by Kim’s sister Khloe, who was determined he sign a prenuptial agreement. Oh, yes. Humphries is a professional basketball player but it is his wife who is the rich one. That’s how much money the Kardashians have.

And they just keep on getting more of it. The newlyweds are rumored to have made a(nother) fortune from televising their wedding and in tonight’s show Khloe and her husband Lamar Odom discussed their then upcoming appearance in a commercial that was actually screened in the course of the episode’s many, many ad breaks. As it happens, another advert was for the new Johnny Depp movie The Rum Diary.  The film is adapted from a novel by Hunter S. Thompson who once described the TV business as “a cruel and shallow money trench.” In arguably related news, the second half of Kim’s Fairytale Wedding will be broadcast on Monday at 9 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. CT.

Did you watch tonight’s show? What did you think?

Snap judgment of Kim Kardashian’s wedding dress: Classic with a dash of crazy

Kim Kardashian -- recently named 2011's Most Annoying Celebrity -- is definitely a doll, right?

I was just watching a clip of tonight’s episode of The CW’s H8r — in which Kim Kardashian confronts a rather salty woman who openly hates her (pictured) — and kept imagining what would happen if someone suddenly reached over and attempted to flick Kim’s doll eyes shut. I’ve been fantasizing about this for months. Would she continue to smile placidly and caress her synthetic doll hair? Would the doll lashes snap off? Would she cross over to an even darker element and become the Kim Kardashian Old Navy Robot? Would she die? Because dolls are supposed to die when you do that. READ FULL STORY

Snap judgment of Kim Kardashian's wedding dress: Classic with a dash of crazy

If you couldn’t tell by the recent Keeping Up With the Kardashian marathons and a media circus that nearly rivaled the April nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Kim Kardashian got hitched in Santa Barbara, Calif., yesterday, and though official photos from the event are being kept mostly under wraps, some images have been released. (Us attempted to get first dibs with this photo, in which Kim and step-dad Bruce Jenner resemble two snowmen.)

In this gallery are images of the $20,000 cake and bridesmaids dressed in white — a move she totally stole from Middleton — and, of course, the dress! (See left!) Based on the details so conveniently leaked into the press, we knew the reality star/mogul/model/ubiquitous spokesperson would don a gown by family friend Vera Wang, who designed sister Khloe’s dress in 2009. But what would it look like? READ FULL STORY

E! will air Kim Kardashian wedding extravaganza for FOUR HOURS

Oh GOD. E! is already planning a two-night primetime gala, and they haven’t even promised that the telecast will include the actual wedding! Check out this save-the-date, which is quite proper and ladylike save for the big E, erect and ready for action:

On the bright side, it turns out we are all invited. The chances?!

Here’s a list just off the top of my head for what you can do to better spend four hours.

'Kim and Kourtney Take New York' premiere: Crazy Scott, poor Baby Mason, and no Krazy Khloe

Kourtney-and-Kim-take-New-YorkImage Credit: Timothy White/E! NetworksSorry, K&K. Turns out you really do need the third K to really round out the krazy. Without Khloe Kardashian (location: “Heaven”) around to say inappropriate things and act like a real human being, E!’s Kim and Kourtney Take New York feels boring and desperate, much like Kim herself. In last night’s premiere, Kim was single, horror show Scott was a maniacal horn dog looking to unleash his all of his pent-up sobriety energy on Kourtney, and Kourtney was instructed to order breakfast for Kim every morning or risk constant pillow thwacks to the head. Who would take care of Baby Mason if Kourtney had to go to the doll hospital? The responsible child care staff provided by E!? Shudder! READ FULL STORY

The Kardashians come out with their own line of Silly Bandz: What will they think of next?

Not a family to shy away from expanding their empire, the Kardashian sisters have joined the ranks of celebrities like Justin Bieber and John Mayer and have announced their own line of Kardashian-branded Silly Bandz. The ubiquitous brightly colored rubber bracelets will come in Kardashian-themed shapes: a letter K, a purse, a high heel, the logo of their store (Dash), a diamond ring, a perfume bottle, silhouettes of the three girls, and some really deformed looking lips. I can only wonder how many episodes into the season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York it’ll take until we see the sisters donning their own Silly Bandz. (It will be like their very own Wriststrong!)

I can’t say I’m surprised that the Kardashians have come out with a set of Silly Bandz, but it really makes me wonder what the sisters could possibly come up with next. READ FULL STORY
