Though summer’s technically not over, I think it’s time to take a look back at everything that happened these summer months. There was a LOT. What do you think was the most shocking? The most WTF? The best fashion moment? Let’s vote!
In case you need a refresher, here are some links to these stories: (more…)

She may not get a choice, however. While Kendall and Kylie have always sorta floated along in the background of the Kardashian family’s insane collection of reality shows, she’s pretty okay with it. She still gets all the “opportunities” (as she calls them) associated with fame without having to actually be on camera 24/7 like her sisters. However, producer (LOL) Ryan Seacrest wants her to be a bigger part of Keeping Up with the Kardashians to portray her “coming of age” story. Oh, brother.
From The New York Times:
But in 2011, the network broadcast “Kendall’s Sweet 16,” a special that showed her attending her birthday party and getting her driver’s license. Since then, she has shown up more frequently in the series. “I don’t know any different,” she said of growing up on TV. Still, she added: “I don’t want to be a big part of the show. Neither does my little sister, only because we want for a little while to keep our somewhat normal lives.”
In a 2011 episode called “Kim Becomes a Stage Mom,” Ms. Jenner headed to New York for a gig modeling prom dresses, only to storm out of a runway coaching session after her half-sister pushed too hard. “I was just like, I don’t know,” Ms. Jenner said, explaining her behavior. “My sister was being kind of annoying, and I was just overwhelmed.”
Among other things, she had been concerned about missing cheerleading practice. Both Jenner sisters have since left Sierra Canyon; at their request, they’re now home-schooled to allow them more time to focus on careers. “It’s fun,” Ms. Jenner said. “There’s so many just crazy opportunities. That’s the upside.”
I actually remember that episode well – Kim was really pushing Kendall into the famewhore lifestyle. Kendall was being a brat, sure, but is there anything wrong with saying you don’t want to follow in crybaby Kim’s footsteps? I don’t think so.
Here’s what Ryan Seacrest had to say about changing things up:
“The original concept was the three primary sisters, but one of the things that we’ve noticed is the viewers have connected with Kendall growing up,” he said. “A coming of age story is always compelling.”
Stop the madness! In any case, Kendall is a pain in the ass. She wants all the benefits of fame without the “work”, and her claiming that she isn’t really into fame is just bullshit. If it weren’t for your family’s fame, you’d be just another California girl working a barista job at Starbucks inbetween desperately going for modeling auditions. Chill.

Khloe Kardashian let it leak last week that Kris and Bruce Jenner are totally living in separate houses, leading some to believe their marriage might be coming to an end in the near future. While Khloe thinks it’s a bit weird for a married couple to need entirely different living spaces, she insisted that nothing is wrong with the relationship and they’re not having problems or anything. Yeah, okay.
Anyhow, now Kendall Jenner has felt the need to come out and protest the naysayers, calling it “just stupid” that people would assume a married couple who can’t bear to live in the same house – even when it’s a f-cking mansion with plenty of rooms where they can get away from one another – are headed for divorce court.
From The New York Times:
Bruce and Kris Jenner, married since 1991, are the subject of tabloid divorce rumors in part fueled by a story line on the show. On last week’s season premiere, Ms. Jenner appeared briefly to discuss the state of her parents’ marriage.
In the suite, in a rare unrehearsed moment, she said of the divorce rumor, “It’s just stupid; that’s not true.”
(Her mother, who famously manages her children’s careers, was not in the room.)
“I don’t feel anything about it,” Ms. Jenner said. “It doesn’t hurt me. It’s not something that gets to me. I know the truth. I live with my parents, and I know what’s going on ——”
Her publicist made a surreptitious cutting motion with her hand.
Why’s the publicist gotta be all hush hush about it if there’s nothing to hide? Maybe we need to check the PRISM documents on this family, eh? LOLZ.
Listen, Kris and Bruce probably won’t get divorced simply because it would ruin their ~precious family~ aura that they think they put out (but totally don’t). However, the fact that they’ve got different houses just goes to show that they see each other even less than they did before, and it’ll probably stay that way. Separate in every way but on paper. Sounds like a blast.

Kim Kardashian had her baby shower yesterday with its strict ~~Garden Chic~~ theme. Judging from the photos, that meant, “wear white.” It seems like it was quite the lovely C-list affair. Some details from People Magazine:
The group enjoyed brunch – noshing on pancakes, waffles and fruit – before playing games and guessing baby names. Guests left with wreaths made of baby’s breath in their hair.
As for the reality star’s beau Kanye West, he did attend after all, arriving with Scott Disick and Lamar Odom.
“Kanye’s whole family – all the women from his mom’s side and dad’s side – attended the shower,” a source tells PEOPLE. “Kanye was so excited to have his family be there to join in the celebration with Kim’s friends and family.”
The mom-to-be, who has been defended by fellow celebs for her sometimes-unconventional maternity style, wore a white long-sleeve pleated dress to the event.
“Kim and Kanye were so cute – he rubbed her belly,” Kardashian’s aunt Karen Houghton tells PEOPLE. “They’re just really blessed. It’s such a happy day.”
Weirdly, no good photos of Kim or Kanye have been released yet. So let’s take a look at the guests’ attire, shall we? Here’s my sneak peak.
BEST: Kimberly Stewart.
WORST: Tracy Anderson, Lamar Odom
WTF: Nene Leaks

Kendall Jenner got slammed on twitter by Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain‘s kid, Frances Bean Cobain a few days and she responded on Facebook. Which is kind of…I mean why not respond on twitter? Angry Beans responded to Ms. Jenner’s stupid tweet “Just wish things could be easier sometimes mann” with two long tweets containing such wise nuggets as “There are kids on earth abandoned&homeless” and blah blah ending with “humans are so self involved.”
From Radar, via DListed:
i am aware that i am very privileged and blessed, and im thankful for that everyday, i know there are greater problems in the world. i pray for those people every night and give back as much as i can. so who are u to judge me?
However, and as DListed pointed out, the Facebook post has been deleted. If it was even there. What really annoys me is that Jenner keeps using “i” and “u” — it’s Facebook, you can spare the characters.
I mean this has to be one of the more boring “celebrity” twitter exchanges ever, right? Even the Jenny McCarthy/Amanda Bynes face-off was more interesting.

Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love‘s kid, Frances Bean Cobain, is 20 years-old now (!!!!!!!87328!W276e###!2/mind exploding). She’s very outspoken and she took the time to slam Kendall Jenner, Miss. Non-Kardashian. Miss Jenner tweeted,
Just wish things could be easier sometimes mann
To which Miss Cobain responded on twitter,
oh shh. There are kids on earth abandoned&homeless who forcibly drink contaminated water because clean water isn’t accessible
oh ya, not to mention, CANCER, famine, poverty, draught, disease, natural disasters, Death. Fuck, Humans are so self involved
See, I was with Miss Frances Bean Cobain right up until her second response, because saying “humans are so self involved” in a twitter attack on Kendall Jenner seems kind of self involved to me. It’s the “high and mightiness” of it all, even if her point is a good one. But yeah, everyone hates a Kardashian, even one who isn’t, and seriously, Kendall Jenner has never had to want for anything. I just really wished Angry Beans stopped before she added that she’d,
rather be a scumbag than a f-cking idiot. Praise high IQ’s, good taste & awareness about the state of the world
I’d like to thank my parents for providing me with a high IQ & I’d like to thank my grams for encouraging me not to be a self absorbed idiot.
Like, come on, you’re 20. Sit down, chill out, and don’t humblebrag about your “high IQ” and your parents.
But if forced to choose a side, I’ll go with Angry Beans.
