The Kardashian Klan is On My Last Good Nerve and Should Just Go Away


Raise your hand if you have gay friends who CANNOT GET MARRIED due to dumbass laws preventing them from a real, loving matrimonial ceremony that actually means something. Unlike someone else we’ve had crammed down our throats. (No sex-tape pun intended…well, maybe a little.)  Why else is Kim famous?? Oh, yeah, the peeing situation…

ANYfame-ho, I’m so OVER this lame-ass excuse for a 72-day marriage, and hearing about Kim filing for divorce yesterday.  I’m not gonna say anything different than anyone else is blabbing about, but I do want to say, “Yeah! What they said!”, because this whole mess was a farce.  The Kardashians–particularly Kim and Momager Kris Jenner can attempt to convince the public all they want that this was true love and a wedding that happened too quickly.  Hey.  PANTS ON FIRE.

Let’s take a look at what is a very interesting list of how this “wedding” was a complete farce:

via THR:

Do you think they paid for ANYTHING?? Oh, and where's the GROOM?

1. Big Day Pay Day

For most, throwing a wedding means spending big bucks. For Kardashian and her man, it meant making them. The reality stars were paid $1.5 million by People magazine for their wedding photos (as well as $300,000 for their engagement announcement), $100,000 from OK! for bridal shower coverage, and between $30,000 and $100,000 from Us Weekly for photos of their post-nuptial trip to Italy. Not to mention the E! stipend they both would have received as part of their show contracts with the network. Nothing says everlasting love like dollar signs.

2. Wedding Sponsorship-Palooza

The payouts didn’t stop there. The couple turned what most view to be a sacred day into a marketing media blitz, which also doesn’t point to sincerity. Instead of picking special or favorite and personal things for their big day, the pair brokered deals to get most of their wedding décor, eats and dresses for free or at a deep discount. Kardashian’s 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz ring should have cost $3 million, but the reality princess received it at a fraction of the price. It’s no coincidence that Kardashian only sported Schwartz jewelry to walk down the aisle (among the items: a $2.5 million 65-carat headpiece, 28-carat earrings and a 15-carat wedding band). The pair also got a deal on their Lehr & Black engraved invites, Kardashian’s hair, makeup and grooming and the cake (which was made by the same L.A.-based company that created her sister Khloe’s).

3. Made-for-TV Weddings Have Been Publicity Ploys in the Past

It’s no secret that getting married in front of the camera’s doesn’t yield many long-term results. Everyone from former MTV’s The Hills stars Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag (who briefly separated in 2010), Brady Bunch alum Christopher Knight and Adrianne Curry, every Bachelor and Bachelorette to get engaged in the history of the ABC shows (minus Trista and Ryan Sutter), Britney Spears and Kevin Federline, Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro whose show ‘Til Death Do Us Part didn’t end up ringing true and Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars Jon and Kate Gosselin, who split after renewing their vows in front of TLC cameras, has seen their unions crumble after airing their weddings. But, despite that fact, Kardashian and Humphries chose to publicly say “I do” Aug. 20 in an E! special.

4. Wedding Regrets

Kardashian’s post-wedding appearance with Humphries on Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime talk show also yielded some seemingly similar not-so-happily-ever-after forecasting. When asked by the host what she would have done differently in regards to her wedding, the star responded, “Elope! I was so crazy for an entire month. I literally, I went crazy. It was so stressful.” A new storyline to explore after the reconciliation, perhaps?

5. Kim Appears Alone on the Cover of People Magazine

People magazine licensed the official wedding photos and interview with Kardashian and her husband for $1.5 million, so when the highly anticipated photos were released, many people expected to see the happy couple on the cover. However, only the blushing bride graces the cover of the big wedding issue, implying that the wedding and marriage were more about the Kardashian brand than the uniting of a couple in love. “It’s all about the bride. We wanted her. It’s her day, we wanted her on the cover,” explained People’s assistant editor Jen Garcia, who defended the magazine’s decision.

6. Kim & Kourtney Take New York Centers on Marital Strife Between Couple

Shortly after their honeymoon, Kardashian and Humphries flew to New York to film the second season of Kim & Kourtney Take New York. The season will most likely heavily feature the couple’s new life together as man and wife. And a source close to Humphries tells THR that the season with end with the couple “taking a break” from their relationship.

7. Pre-Split Public Partying

In a very coincidental turn, Humphries, who has never made headlines for being a party-boy before, was publicly spotted out on the town in NYC in the weeks leading up to the split announcement. Us Weekly’s cover story proclaimed “Enough!” saying the reality star was sick of funding her husband’s partying habits during the NBA lockout. Star magazine also cited eyewitness accounts of the basketballer “acting like he didn’t have a wife at home.”

8. Outlets Got Delayed Response

On Monday, when news began circulating that Kardashian was planning on filing for divorce, it was E! that got it confirmed first. Even after their site announced the news, other networks were waiting around for confirmation from her reps for quite some time. Of course E! pays the Kardashians, and Ryan Seacrest produces the show, so it would make sense. But is all that surprise by even the cable network possibly one big ruse to make that reunion plotline down the road more believable?

9. “Convenient” Timing of Announcement of Divorce

The news that Kardashian was filing for divorce hit the news on Monday morning. Most weekly magazines close out their issues Monday evening. This timing may not be a coincidence. The matriach of the Kardashian clan, Kris Jenner, made sure that the news hit before the weeklies closed, according to THR sources.

10. Kris Humphries Expresses Shocks Over Divorce News

What would make this sudden divorce announcement even more dramatic? And drive the previously unknown Humphries’ fame even more? If Humphries didn’t know that he was getting hit with a divorce. The NBA player ran straight to TMZ and E! to express his shock at the news. “I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce,” he said in a statement. “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.” Isn’t that what a heartbroken man does? Run to the nearest media outlet? Again, every reality producer in town must be thinking right now how to write that “Kris Wins Kim Back” extended plotline…

The Montecito Biltmore Four Seasons Hotel

How many of you were given–or even loaned extravagant Lorraine Schwartz diamond rings, earrings, a headpiece, a Vera Wang dress, an entire WING and the bar at the Montecito Four Seasons Hotel (which ruined another bride’s wedding, due to the Kardashian’s demands and chaos) for the before-the ceremony parties and lodging, as well as an over-the-top wedding at a tremendous mansion in Montecito (aka the Rivera of America, just a hop-skip from Santa Barbara).  I’ve stayed at this posh resort and as far as I’m concerned, the Kardashians have sullied its beauty and elegance.

Again.  I’m just clearly redundant.  Every media outlet, blog, talk show and water-cooler chatter at the office has, undoubtedly had the exact same conversation regarding this idiocy.

Oh, and I hold Ryan Seacrest and E! to blame for this farce, as well.

Charlie Sheen Dumped Via Text Message

Smell ya!


All together now, “NOT WINNING!

Charlie Sheen is down a “goddess”– and how about we stop calling these women that, okay? While on stage during his “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option” tour in Ft. Lauderfale, FL, he revealed that his porn-star girlfriend Bree Olson ended her relationship with him by text message. Sheen answered a fan’s question about how he and his two girlfriends were doing by saying, “Not well, because one left.“.   Olson, whose real name is Rachel Oberlin, had previously denied reports that she left Charlie for the second time.

Oberlin, 24, had been accompanying Sheen on his tour, even kissing his other girlfriend Natalie Kenly on stage.  She has reportedly returned back to her parent’s house in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  Stay there girl!

Also during the show, Sheen invited Lindsay Lohan to hang out with him after she was released on bail Friday for $75,000. “I would hug her and let her know it’s gonna be OK,” he said. Yikes.

Remember when Britney broke up with Kevin Federline through text, and on camera?!  I guess “LOL. I’m breaking up with you“,  is better than doing it in person.

The 62nd Emmy Awards Wrap-Up! (VIDEO/PICTURES) Complete List of Winners

By: DivaJulia and Brittani, The Girl You Want

And here we go....

Pretty darn awesome opening number for the 62nd Emmy Awards held tonight, but I wish that icky fame-ho mother of eight children would just disappear. Not. Gonna. Say. Her. Name.

My girl, Brittani (The Girl You Want) and I are collaborating on this post inadvertently…but it’ll work.

via Brittani:

“I really enjoyed the Emmy awards this year. No big surprises, but some favorites did win. I thought Jimmy Fallon was a great host. No snarky remarks, no jokes about celebutard arrests.   Save that mess for the VMAs.  Jimmy  really bought his A game, and was one of the best hosts in the past couple of years along, with Neil Patrick Harris and Conan O’Brien. I loved the opening skit. Yes, it was corny.  It was supposed to be, I mean, it did feature the cast of “Glee” after all. It was nice to see Tina Fey, Jon Hamm and Jorge Garcia dancing and singing. I love it when celebrities don’t take themselves too seriously.

Of course none of them are The Boss, but this was pretty funny. And for once, Lea Michele didn’t irk the hell out of me.”

(But Lea ALWAYS irritates the hell outta ME – DivaJulia)

Lea Michele for GLEE does look great in her Oscar de la Renta gown. From the nose down. Ugh...that screech that comes outta her mouth.

January Jones looked she just rolled outta bed during tonight’s festivities. I’m sure TMZ will have pics of JJ doing the Walk of Shame in the morning, flagging a cab from God knows which dude’s house she decided to pass out in…yikes.  Oh, and what the HELL was with her bitchface and cool distance onstage from Jon Hamm when Mad Men won for Best Drama??  MAJOR body language; Jon’s arms were crossed while he was a good 3-4 feet away from JJ and the rest of the cast (but mostly HER).  Did anyone else notice that?  Hey, January?  You’re not married in REAL LIFE to Jon–you could at least ACT happy that the show that made you “famous” won a big award, you know.  I’m really beginning to wrinkle my nose when I see this chick.

All I can see are those BLACK SHOES. What??? (Oh, and the fried hair and crabby face.)
Julia Louis Dreyfus looked AMAZING. Does she ever AGE??
The always lovely, Sofia Vergara from "Modern Family"
Christina (My Eyes are UP HERE!) Hendricks from "Mad Men"
George Clooney received the Humanitarian Award for his philanthropic work….and deserves the last word:
Mr. Handsome
George began his touching speech with a funny line while recognizing the standing ovation he received upon introduction:

“”Okay don’t do that. I think then, maybe I’m sick or something,” he joked when the audience gave him a standing ovation after he took the stage.”

Then George got down to the matter at hand:

“It’s important to remember how much good can get done because we live in such strange times where bad behaviours suck up all the attention in the press and the people who really need the spotlight, the Haitians, the Sudanese, the people in the Gulf Coast… Pakistan, they can’t get any (press).”

Lightening the mood with a laugh, he continued: “I thought maybe there was a way to combine the two. I offered to go to the South Sudan and have a wardrobe malfunction, but it was pointed out to me that I’m 49 and it would just be upsetting and kind of sad.

The truth is when a disaster happens, everybody wants to help. Everybody in this room wants to help, everybody at home wants to help. The hard part is part is seven months later, five years later, when we’re on to a new story. And honestly, we fail at that most of the time. That’s the fact. I failed at that.

So here’s hoping that some very bright person right here in the room or at home watching can help find a way to keep the spotlight burning on these heartbreaking situations that continue to be heartbreaking long after the cameras go away. That would be an impressive accomplishment.”

George?  You’re awesome.

Tonight’s show was so snappily funny that I was amazed it was over already–unlike most awards ceremonies.

Well done.
