Great! If they both want an annulment, then things should go pretty smoothly, right? It should be no time at all before Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are able to move on with their lives as if they had never been married at all! How convenient!
LOL, you guys, you know things aren’t going to go smoothly at all. You know how annulment works, right? In order to get one, you have to prove that something was wrong with the marriage from the get-go, like you were forced to get married or you married a minor or a close blood relative, something like that, you can’t just chalk it all up to irreconcilable differences.
So what would be the reason for Kris and Kim’s annulment? Fraud. And what’s the hold up? They both want the other person to confess to it. Of course.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are both willing to end their marriage with an annulment, but each is insisting that the other confess to fraud — and that’s what is holding up their settlement.
Sources connected to the former couple tell TMZ … Kim would be happy to annul the marriage, if Kris will admit he defrauded her by promising to live with her in Hollywood and then demanding that she move to Minnesota — something we told you about last October.
As we first reported, Kris wants Kim to admit fraud — that she never had any intention of making this a real marriage … something Kim has adamantly denied.
We’re told Kim will open the vault and spend anything it takes to win this case if Kris insists that she confesses fraud.
As for money … we’ve already told you Kris is demanding $7 million from Kim — something Kim thinks is absurd since he MADE money off the wedding and the reality show PLUS they have a prenup which gives Kris a big fat zero.
Yeah, for some reason I think Kris has the advantage here. Just from looking at Evil Beet alone, you could probably get a pretty good argument for his case. There are a good few pieces of evidence that show that Kim really was faking the whole thing, and besides, does Kim have any grounds at all for her argument? Kris’ whole thing was “nobody is going to care about you in a few years, so why don’t we just go ahead and make a home in Minnesota?” and I’m paraphrasing that, but just barely. He told her something but then he wanted to discuss it. Kim’s case sounds more like a case for hurt feelings than for fraud.
Whatever happens, I just hope we get to see this courtroom drama unfold. It will be the trashy, catty Law and Order spin-off that I always dreamed of.

You know, there’s a question that’s been burning deep inside of me for quite some time now (and no, it’s not just the kidney stones, either) and I need an answer. I need one. Why do photographers feel the compulsion to Photoshop such hellacity into each and every one of the Kardashians’ faces? Putting all biases aside, they’re pretty enough girls. They do alright on their own. Why interfere in that with poorly-done computer-generated imagery when things are just fine the way they are? Because do you see the above ad for the Kardashians’ new lingerie collection at Sears? It’s flat-out awful. Just … bad. Of course, the lingerie is just fine, and even though all three of them are way bustier than they appear to be in real life, the girls’ faces are just too much for me to handle, and not in a warm, fuzzy way. It’s all way too much.
Khloe, though, for one? Well, she loves the way the photo looks. On Twitter she said, “OMG how fab is this new ad for Kardashian Kollection lingerie?!? Nothing makes me feel sexier, plus it’s all so comfy! Killing two birds with one stone! LOL.” Comfy? Lingerie is comfy? In what parallel universe is lingerie comfy? See, when I think ‘comfy,’ I think ‘granny flannel’ and ‘argyle knee socks’. ‘Yoga pants’ and ‘camisoles’. Definitely not abrasive lace that always rubs your cracks and crevices the wrong way, padded underwires that poke and prod and bruise ribs, or thigh-highs that don’t want to stay up on their own. But yeah. ‘Comfy’, right?
Incidentally, the shoot was done by Annie Leibovitz, whose work becomes more and more questionable as the days go by. Also, what’s with the spray-tanner, and why is it so heavily concentrated on their faces? Is someone trying to send a message here?
The ladies may be quite pretty, and everyone likes lingerie (though let’s not fool ourselves with words like ‘comfy’ here), but this ad? It’s just complete crap, much like the quality of lingerie sold at Sears probably is anyway.

“Whether it’s Kim Kardashian or Paris Hilton or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f*cking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.”
I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, “stupid,” is in my opinion careless.
The thing is, no one was ever really expecting Kim to blow up about this. Do you realize how often Kim Kardashian gets called a f*cking idiot? Probably at least three times a week here at Evil Beet alone. In fact, another well respected actor, Daniel Craig, called her a f*cking idiot just a few months ago:
“Look at the Kardashians, they’re worth millions. I don’t think they were that badly off to begin with but now look at them. You see that and you think, ‘What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f*king idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions?’ …I’m not judging it. Well, I am, obviously.”
See? No hard feelings! Talented, generally classy people get exasperated enough to get catty about the Kardashians all the time, and as long as they talk trash about them in public, it’s totally cool. It’s actually great. So keep ‘em comin’, guys! Maybe Brad Pitt and George Clooney can get throw a slumber party and watch every single episode of Khloe and Lamar and then give bitchy reports to GQ next time! Score.

I know there was that rumor that you just traded in a bunch of your wedding presents to get some neat Rolexes, but that wasn’t true, was it, Kim Kardashian? You couldn’t really do that! You certainly returned them all after your 72 day marriage, because that would be the right thing to do, wouldn’t it? Especially since the gifts were so pricey, and, uh, you were only married for 72 days. No, I’m sure all the rumors were wrong, and you totally returned each and every one of those gifts.
Oh, wait, you really did just keep them all? And that’s been proven? That’s … well, let’s just get the facts and then discuss, ok?
Kim Kardashian is making lemonade out of lemons.
The reality star, 31, and husband Kris Humphries received about $100,000 worth of wedding gifts back in August, but they famously called it quits after just 72 days, with Kardashian filing for divorce Oct. 31.
But Kardashian wrote all of her wedding guests a thank-you note. As obtained by TMZ, the letter reads “I would like to thank you for your generous and thoughtful wedding gift. It has taken me some time to pull everything together but I wanted to let you know that the money for every gift received by me at my wedding has been donated to the Dream Foundation.”
A source confirms to Us that Kardashian wrote a check to the Dream Foundation worth double the value of her expensive gifts. (While Kardashian and Humphries, 26, kept the actual gifts, the source explains that the Dream Foundation, like most charities, could make far better use of the money versus high-priced vases and blenders.)
Similar to the Make-a-Wish Foundation, the Dream Foundation, founded in 1993, is a “wish-granting organization” for adults (from paying bills to creating happy memories to providing emotional support) with life-threatening illnesses.
There, see! The money for every gift she received has been donated to charity! How thoughtful! This just goes to show you that Kim isn’t the horrible person everyone makes her out to be, and that she has a huge heart and not a materialistic bone in her body. If she did, then she would have kept all those fancy wedding gifts!
Oh, snap. I just reread the article. She totally kept all those fancy wedding gifts, and she sent a letter to everyone basically saying “thanks for the cool prezzies and now for this awesome tax write-off!” What’s more telling, though, is that she obviously thinks that’s a marvelous thing to do and that people will be proud of her for it. Not so much. She can afford to get her own high-priced vases and blenders and to donate money to charity, there’s no reason for her to take this route. It’s tacky as hell, and I wish I could say that I expected more from her.
What would you do if you were in Kim’s situation?

Remember that time that Kim Kardashian went to Dubai last fall and then came back and faked a scene for Kourtney and Kim Take New York to prove that Kris Humphries is an asshole and the divorce was all his fault? Ok, the majority of that sentence was just for funzies, but what I’m really asking is “remember that time that Kim Kardashian went to Dubai last fall?” While she was over there, it turns out that “many Saudi Arabian princes were throwing themselves” at her, because why wouldn’t they, and Kim “really had a connection” with one of them, because why wouldn’t she? It’s not like she was married at the time … oh wait, she was, let me rephrase it … it’s not like she was in a serious relationship at the time.
From Hollywood Life:
Kim K. may finally get the man of her dreams after all! And this new guy is far better than the athletes of her past!
The Kardashians have always joked that Kim Kardashian, 31, is the “princess” of the family. Well, her dream of becoming royalty could happen sooner than she thought!
During Kim and Kris Jenner‘s trip to Dubai in October 2011, many Saudi Arabian princes were throwing themselves at Kim, according to a new report in Star magazine. And now she may have found a match!
“Several royals gave her their phone numbers and made it clear they were serious about dating her,” a source tells the mag. “The one she really had a connection with is a billionare!”
While her prince’s identity has yet to be revealed, sources tell the mag that he’s not hesitant to dole out cash which is exactly what she was looking for in her next man.
“She wants to be taken care of,” the source says. “She’s done being a sugar mama.”
So forget about the rumors of Kim and Reggie rekindling their romance because the source says he’s “yesterday’s news” and “not rich enough.”
Maybe this is why Kim has been jetting off Haiti for charity work? Is she getting a head start on princess duties? Will Kim and Kate Middleton be PRINCESS FRIENDS? So many questions!
Oh my gosh, how perfect of a plot line would that be for Kim Kardashian’s life? She’d be a real life princess, which could probably get at least, like, one and a half seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Of course there would be a new spin-off featuring Kim’s new life, and I could see Kris Jenner dumping Bruce to try to get a prince of her own. Is there a movie where some people lose their passports or something and get trapped in a foreign country where the don’t speak the language, and wacky hijinks ensue? Because it would be just like that. And it would be so good.

On your marks – get set! – go! Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Love Hewitt are head to head in competition for saddest reality famewhore of … um, I don’t know. Just this post, I suppose. I know you guys are probably thinking, “Blasphemy! Sacrilege!” because I’m sort of slamming one of my favorite ladies (Jennifer Love Hewitt, of course), but really, I’m not. I’m merely being realistic.
Come on. These two ladies both look like they’ve been up all night – both for different reasons, naturally; I’m willing to bet that Kim was up all night airbrushing her face so that it appears she’s wearing no makeup despite the fact that she’s actually got about seventeen layers of it, and that, my friends, is an art in its own right. JLH was probably up all night studying her script for The Client List and all six lines per show that she’s going to contractually receive. She’s probably also been writing love sonnets for her old flame, Jamie Kennedy, non-stop since she heard that he’s considered re-tapping that ass.
The moral of the story? Hard work is hard work, but what really defines you as a C-list celebrity is exactly what you work hard at doing.
Who’d you rather – Kim or Jennifer? Here’s the individual photos to help you decide.
And, of course, Jennifer Love:
