What are we to make of Kim Kardashian? She has everything that a human being could conceivably desire. She is cartoonishly beautiful and monstrously wealthy. She eats at only the finest restaurants and wears only the finest clothes. She lives in a big expensive house in Los Angeles, except when she occasionally decides to live in a big expensive suite in Manhattan, and you get the vibe that she has a big expensive place to live in every major city in the world. She recently got paid a huge sum of money to fly to Dubai, where her work consisted of smiling and waving and finding increasingly vapid ways to express her undying love for Dubai. A crack team of makeup elves follows her everywhere, ensuring that she always looks magazine-perfect and robo-pretty. She will never go hungry. She will never go broke. She will never wake up in an uncomfortable bed. Those are not even concerns that she could understand. Our problems are as remote to her as were the problems of the common slave to the Pharaoh.

This was the winter of our disconnect.
Despite the general belief that the Year of the Dragon is supposed to usher in prosperity, such has not proven true for some of our favorite A-listers. In the last month, no fewer than a dozen celebrities have announced that they would be buying one-way tickets on the break-up train straight to Singlesville. What gives? READ FULL STORY »
Nick Cannon called in to The Howard Stern Show this morning as he simulcasted his own radio show. The two entertainers, who are teaming up on the next season of America’s Got Talent, talked about everything from Cannon’s recent health scare to the upcoming season of AGT. Cannon had some harsh words for former Talent judge Piers Morgan, whom Stern is replacing, and some TMI about his sexual experience with wife Mariah Carey, Lindsay Lohan, and Kim Kardashian.

In an essay for this week’s Sports Illustrated, writer Jack McCallum discusses the outpouring of vitriol for Kris Humphries — who was recently named the NBA’s most disliked player — in the wake of his 72-day marriage to Kim Kardashian. McCallum asserts that fans, who’ve taken to heckling Humphries with cardboard cutouts of his ex during his games, are choosing Kardashian over the Nets forward and urges his readers, “to plant your flag on the correct side in this culture war, which is not the Kardashian side.” With all due respect to McCallum, I’m not so sure basketball fans are taking sides at all in this sideshow.

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.

Kris Humphries isn’t exactly a big star in an NBA galaxy full of LeBrons and Kobes, but he’s being treated like one because of his off-the-court profile. When the New Jersey Nets forward took the court last night to face the New York Knicks in an exhibition game, the Madison Square Garden crowd greeted him with boos and heckled him every time he touched the ball. The crowd had so much fun taunting him that when he sat on the bench, they pleaded for more, chanting, “We want Humphries! We want Humphries!”
This wasn’t an isolated incident. According to a new Forbes.com fan poll, Humphries has surpassed LeBron James as the most disliked player in the league, a somewhat surprising showing for a non-superstar like Humphries. READ FULL STORY »
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.

Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011 just aired, and in addition to previously announced honorees such as the Kardashians and Herman Cain, the number one spot, as is the standard, was left secret until the broadcast. SPOILER ALERT! The 2011 Most Fascinating Person was (drumroll please)…
Last night’s episode of Kokomo and Kaiser Wilhelm Take Newt Gingrich began with Kris playing around with little Baby Mason. “Vroom vroom, you’re an airplane!” he said. At some point, Kris stopped playing with Baby Mason and started playing with Kim. (It’s an understandable mistake: To Kris Humphries, anyone under five feet tall pretty much looks the same.) He trapped Kim inside of a tiny cardboard house. He said, “Grr, I’m a tornado!” and was pushing the house back and forth. He laughed and laughed and laughed, and the whole time his lovely munchkin wife was screaming. By way of apology, he picked her up and put her into a crib and said, “Good night, my little baby.”
That horrifying sequence set the tone for the episode, which was mostly focused on babies. (And also Maid/Manservant Threesome Porno, but let’s get to that later.) See, Kim ran out of birth control pills, and then walked downstairs and announced, “I just finished my birth control pack, and I think it’s a sign that I shouldn’t take it anymore.” Kourtney asked her sister if she was really ready to be a mother. For Kourtney, being “ready” means that you can pretend to be a frog. “Ribbit ribbit,” yelled Kourtney, “Ribbit ribbit!” READ FULL STORY »
