“I hope they’ll want to film me in my old-folks home, where my kids will probably put me because I’ll be too evil. They’ll be changing my diapers on television.”
To bring the point home, here’s what Kim added:
“We’ve always said we’ll stop when it stops being fun. We’re having such a good time, so there’s really no point stopping now.”
Yesterday I asked if people were beginning to lose interest in the Kardashians, based on the fact that no one wanted to pay money for the pictures of Kourtney Kardashian‘s baby shower. It’s not clear if that’s true or not just yet, but if it is, and even if it isn’t, I guess, won’t it be so sad when the Kardashian empire krumbles? I don’t mean sad as in “oh, we’ll miss you guys so much!” but sad as in “wow, it’s really awkward to see you guys being so desperate.” I could definitely see Kris Jenner bursting into tears and getting on her knees, begging anyone at all to please take interest in her family again, and I shudder to think the kinds of things that Kim would do for more publicity.
What I’m saying is that as much as I love Khloe, there’s no way that anyone will be filming her when she’s old enough to be put into a nursing home. Well, unless it’s Kim, lumbering into her room with her walker, trying to keep her video camera steady. And that’s an image I really don’t want to think too hard about this early in the morning.
But how would you feel if Keeping Up with the Kardashians was on television for the rest of your life?

Sorry, but yes, people do still care about the Kardashians. A few weeks ago, we learned that the family signed on for three more seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and with the stunts that Kris Jenner pulls, I don’t think they’ll have a problem with getting viewers. But here’s the good news: it looks like people are starting to care less about the Kardashians. And that’s something, right?
From the Huffington Post:
Over the years, the Kardashians have made a fortune selling almost every aspect of their lives — from baby pictures to wedding exclusives — to celebrity weekly magazines. The sisters have even posed in bikinis to make a little extra cash. But after their long and profitable run, it looks like interest in the family is starting to run out.
“No one wanted exclusive access to Kourtney’s baby shower,” the editor of a weekly magazine told me. “Kris [Jenner] tried to trick everyone, [saying] the shower was going to other magazines for $80,000 so everyone would bid higher. But it backfired on her and, in the end, she just gave the pictures to US Weekly for almost nothing.”
A spokesperson for US Weekly declined to comment on whether the magazine bought the images and, if so, how much they paid.
“The weekly magazine market is changing week by week,” another insider tells me. “There are so many reality stars willing to give stories away to get attention that selling access no longer is worth paying the big bucks.”
Still, celebrities are continuing to make money from selling their private photos.
Jessica Simpson recently sold her new baby girl’s pictures to People magazine for $800,000, but that figure pales in comparison to the record $14 million Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got for pictures of their twins back in 2008.
And although Kris didn’t get as much as she wanted for access to Kourtney’s baby shower, insiders tell me to expect momma Kardashian to attempt to sell images of Kourtney’s new baby when she arrives.
As further proof that people don’t care as much about these people as they used to, the most exciting thing I got out of that whole story was that we’re probably going to get to see pictures of Jessica Simpson‘s baby soon. How precious will those pictures be? Way more precious than pictures from Kourtney’s baby shower, to be honest.

I can’t even count how many times we’ve proclaimed that Khloe Kardashian is the best Kardashian. At some point though, it became less of an opinion and more of a fact. If you need more convincing though, just think of this: Kim Kardashian is the worst Kardashian, right? And Khloe is the opposite of Kim in nearly every single way, isn’t she? It just makes sense, you guys. It just makes sense.
But if you need more convincing, check out this little interview:
“I was called fat all the time,” she recalls in an interview with E! News‘ David Burtka airing today. “I’ve always been compared to my sisters, who are beautiful and who have always been.”
Kardashian, who has spoken out against bullying and worked with the “It Gets Better” campaign, says that at 5 feet 10 at age 13 and with lighter skin than her sisters, she always stuck out.
“I feel like I was so attacked,” said Kardashian. “[I was picked on because] I had to wear braces, I was overweight as a kid, just for no reason.”
Even to this day, adds the E! star and household name, she still gets treated like the ugly duckling.
“I’m called the fat sister…I’m called the ugliest Kardashian,” she says. But the haters don’t hurt her the way they used to.
“I’m proud of myself,” Kardashian declares. “I could break and go get all this plastic surgery and get my nose fixed and get lipo or do whatever, but I haven’t chosen to do that because I know I’m a great person. I’m pretty damn hot, if you ask me.”
Regarding the still-rampant issue of bullying, Kardashian says that she would love it if kids could focus on “how many positives they have.”
“Typically people get bullied because [the bullies are] afraid of that person,” she observes. “There’s a spark, a light, something that the bully doesn’t have—and they’re intimidated, so they want to attack you.”
As for her fellow adults who may be witnesses to child-vs.-child bullying and who decline to step in, saying they don’t want to interfere, Kardashian has no patience for such things.
“A lot of adults don’t think it’s their place to interfere with kids,” she says. “I interfere all the time.”
I love this girl to pieces and I wish she was my best friend. There, I said it.

Have you heard all the divorce rumors swirling around poor Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom? I’m not talking about the ones that began when they got married after knowing each other for just a few weeks, I’m talking about the more recent ones. Awful, right? I like to believe that these two are in it for the long haul, and whenever I hear all these rumors, I usually just give them a flippant “pssh!” and carry on with my day.
This is an example of such a rumor:
Khloe Kardashian claims she lost an incredible 20lbs in just 20 days, after piling on weight as her marriage to NBA star Lamar Odom started to crumble.
The 27-year-old took refuge in comfort food after Odom, 32, blamed her for the humiliation of being fired by the Dallas Mavericks, a source told Life and Style Weekly.
But ironically, a period of intense training with Odom has brought her both closer to her husband, and to a smaller dress size.
Khloe, who is a strapping 5ft 10in to her sister Kim’s 5ft 2in, posed in an indigo bikini for the publication under the banner: ‘How I got thin fast!’.
Khloe’s dramatic weight loss is credited to eating healthy meals cooked by a personal chef and intense workout sessions with her hubby and a trainer.
It’s been reported that the pair are set to take a break from their reality TV career, but as RadarOnline.com first reported, sources close to Lamar think it’s doubtful he will walk away.
“I don’t believe that Lamar is not going to do another season,” a source close to the couple said about their show Khloe and Lamar.
“He’s been telling people how much he’s making. He’s been bragging about all his money and saying it is a lot so it is too much for him to quit.”
See what I mean? From what I’ve seen, Lamar absolutely adores Khloe, and I couldn’t imagine him blaming her for his basketball issues, no matter how upset he might be. I’m not sure I could completely believe this story, and so all that divorce nonsense is, once again, so whatever.
Oh, but Khloe did an interview with People? And she actually mentions divorce herself? I … but … oh no:
“We just wanted to prioritize a little,” Khloe Kardashian, 27, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview as the couple tables their show Khloé & Lamar until his basketball career is back on track. “We just wanted a little pause. Part of being married is knowing when your husband needs your support.”
While Kardashian says she always made sure cameras weren’t around during days when Lamar, 32, had a basketball game (he’s currently sitting out the season after a difficult trade to Dallas), now that they’ll only be appearing on E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and their own daily lives will no longer be on display, “there’s less pressure on us.”
That pressure had certainly been building.
But Kardashian says, the risk of damaging her relationship with Lamar wasn’t worth it.
“I’m a modern girl, but you should put your husband first,” she says. “I like to think divorce is not an option.”
I am so scared.

Here’s a question to consider: how do you imagine all the Kardashian kraziness will end? There are a couple of broad options, as far as I can tell. One would be that it will never end. Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe would hand over the reins to Kendall and Kylie Jenner, who will in turn hand them over to the offspring of Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe, and the cycle will continue forever. Another option is that the public will lose interest in these people in the next couple of years or so, and the shows will get cancelled and they’ll all slip away into obscurity. The last option is that they’ll get tired of the cameras and the attention and retreat into privacy all by themselves.
With Kim and her trusty sidekick, Kris Jenner, I’m sure it will be that second option. But in a not-so-surprising move by our favorite Kardashian, Khloe has officially decided to end her show, Khloe and Lamar, on her own terms.
Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian have decided to pull the plug on their spin-off show “Khloe & Lamar.”
Sources tell TMZ, the show’s second season will be its last … because Lamar wants to focus on reviving his fizzling NBA career.
As we previously reported, Lamar was relegated to the Dallas Mavericks’ inactive list after putting up career low numbers this season. If he’s lucky, he’ll be traded. If not, who knows …
But we’re told Lamar is determined to make a comeback — and he feels he should focus on only one project. Lamar will be living in L.A. full-time and he’s hired trainers to help him get his game back.
According to sources, Khloe and Lamar WILL make occasional appearances on the reality mother ship,”Keeping Up with the Kardashians” — but that’s it. No mas.
Yeah, Lamar didn’t do so hot in Dallas. He took a leave of absence for a while to take care of his ill father, and he missed quite a few games, and then he was demoted to the D-League for a bit, which I think would be like making Justin Timberlake give up all his fancy movies and fame and go on back to the Mickey Mouse Club. Then a few weeks ago, Lamar made a statement saying that he and the team have “mutually agreed that it’s in the best interest of both parties” for him to quit the team. The only thing I know about basketball is that I have a knack for hitting myself in the face with the ball, so I have no idea where Lamar can go from here. Would it be a long shot for him to get traded? Is it almost certain that he’ll have to retire? No idea.
All I know is that Khloe sounds like a lovely, supportive wife, who is also a Kardashian who is willingly stepping out of the spotlight. Yeah, I’m still having trouble comprehending that one.

You know, normally, we have a bevy of good things to say about Khloe Kardashian, especially considering the fact that she is* a Kardashian. But this weird face-wear? It’s bad, and it makes girlfriend look really, really dumb. YOU ARE SO DUMB, Khloe. Or at least, you look that way with the thing that’s pasted to your forehead that makes your eyebrows look low and lunky, like a caveman.
I don’t even get what she’s trying to do with all that forehead business while wearing that outfit. She should have on a paisley peasant blouse and Hammer pants if she wants to really work that thing, because looking like she walked off the cover of American Eagle’s 2002 catalog doesn’t really fit the whole “Dr. Spock’s vulcan bindi” vibe that she’s apparently going for.
Also, Khloe Kardashian is not pregnant. Not with how tight those jeans are, hell no. Girl is looking fine, I have to hand it to her. Now if she’d stop taking fashion pointers from Princess Jasmine on E, she might make some headway in being the hottest “Kardashian” of them all.
