Our pop-culture guide to what’s in, what’s fading, and what’s definitely out.
Tag: Kim Kardashian (21-30 of 96)
Kim Kardashian sees Demi Moore’s naked and pregnant Vanity Fair cover and raises her this (seemingly) naked, pregnant, faux-mid-coitus L’Officiel Hommes cover, co-starring Kanye West as “the guy simulating sex with Kim Kardashian.” Clearly, this couple is trying to make things as awkward as possible for their unborn kid. Little Konniption Kardashian-West must be protected from Google at all costs, once he or she learns how to type.
Think the cover is classy in a French fashion magazine sort of way, or trashy in a low rent French fashion magazine sort of way?
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.
Maybe Kanye West is trying to create buzz for a new project, like that rumored Cruel Winter album. Maybe he wanted to cede the virtual spotlight to Kim Kardashian, who could really use more attention. Maybe he just realized he could never top “I specifically ordered persian rugs with cherub imagery!!! What do I have to do to get a simple persian rug with cherub imagery uuuuugh.”
Whatever the reason, West has officially deleted every single one of his brilliant, ridiculous tweets — minus an ominous message that simply reads “BE BACK SOON.”
It’s not right, but it’s okay. At least we’ll always have this video of Josh Groban singing Yeezy’s greatest Twitter hits:
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
