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:

You read that headline right, Kim Kardashian is already talking about her next wedding. Is that weird? She announced her divorce a little over 100 days ago, and for her to already be doing some preliminary planning, that’s … well, I think that’s strange. Of course there are lots of girls who dream about weddings and true love and all that, but don’t you think it would be wise to focus on your next relationship, or, I don’t know, finalizing your divorce before you think anything about a wedding?
On having limits: “People [think] because you film your life on a reality show, you live everything for the cameras. But we all have limits,” says Kardashian. “My mom has no limits. We need someone, right, to have no limits? That’s my mom.” As for Kardashian’s limits, they are evolving. There was a time when she thought she wanted an ongoing record of her marriage for posterity. “When I saw Khloé and Lamar get married—and they had their wedding on TV—I thought, Oh, my gosh, that’s so exciting! That’s what I want! If you were to ask me now, that’s not what I want.”
On her next relationship: If Kardashian has regrets about sharing so much of her personal life on camera, she doesn’t dwell on them. Still, she says, the experience “definitely made me want to be more private with my relationship, whenever I choose to get into one again. I’m not ready, but when that time comes, I’ll be more cautious about who I let my world open up to.”
Why people watch her shows: “It’s the glitz and the glam, but then we have the normal fights. I get a lot [of comments] like ‘I have no sisters and I wish I did’ or ‘I have tons of sisters, and we’re just like you!’ There are so many of us, someone can relate to one of us in the family.”
On being Khloe’s surrogate: “Khloé joked with me and said, ‘Will you be my surrogate?’” Kim says about having children. “I said, ‘I think I have a couple more years when I just want my body to myself. At 35, I promise I’ll consider it.’”
On her next wedding: “I would just want it to be so special, with our family and close friends, and that’s it. Somewhere on a deserted island, very private,” she says, lowering her gaze. “No cameras.”
Kim asks herself questions: “Do I want kids of my own? Absolutely. But I don’t know if that’s what’s meant for me. Maybe I’ll just work, work, work, and not think about it.”
“Is it tough to watch [the show]? Yeah. Tough to see an unhappy time in your life.”
“Do I think there are more haters than before? Not really. But I think this has given them a platform to have a louder voice.”
“Will I be more private of a person? Am I more guarded? Absolutely,” she says. “But, also, I’m a firm believer that my show is who I am.”
Does this whole interview annoy the hell out of me? It absolutely does. But am I interested anyway? I am. Does that make me feel bad? A little, but not really. Do I think Kim is talking out of her ass with zero sincerity? Always.

Well, technically, of course, this would be an old couple alert, since Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush have been a couple in the past. In fact, Reggie was Kim’s one true love. Tragically, these two kids just couldn’t make things work, and they called it quits. While their love never died, their circumstances would not allow them to be together. But, after a good while and another marriage under Kim’s belt, maybe it’s time to try again.
At least, it looks like it’s time to try again, because Kim and Reggie were recently spotted out on a date:
Kim Kardashian has REUNITED with her ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush … breaking bread with the NFL player at the Beverly Hills Hotel this weekend … TMZ has learned.
Multiple sources tell us … the two were smiling and laughing during the lunch date … and played it cool when fans approached them for pictures and autographs.
We’re told it seemed just like old times … before Kim went off and married/divorced that other guy whose name we can’t remember.
Sources say the two have been spending A LOT of time together in the past few days … but it’s unclear if it’s a full-on reconciliation.
And then there’s the speculation from “a source,” natch:
Amid reports last weekend that the reality star reunited over lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel with ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush, a source tells PEOPLE that the two are just friends – at least for now.
“They don’t know what will happen,” the source says. “They’re taking it slow. They love each other so much and miss each other, but their relationship is so complicated.”
Less than four months after announcing her split from Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage, Kardashian, 31, who last called it quits with the NFL pro, 26, in 2010, is in no rush to enter another relationship.
“Things are up in the air,” the source adds. “Kim very much wants to take her time and be single and heal from her divorce.”
Bush, who first stepped out with Kardashian in 2007, might also want to check in with stepfather Bruce Jenner.
“The next guy’s got to go through me,” Jenner said on Tuesday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I can tell if it’s going to work or not.”
Yeah, the source is right, Kim definitely needs time to heal. You don’t just bounce right back after a divorce, you know. I mean, she was married for 72 days, all right? Don’t rush her into anything.
But really, I hope this is true. Reggie and Kim did always seem really into each other, and it’s not like Kim could screw up a relationship worse than she already has, right?

I’ve always thought that Kim Kardashian has had some sort of plastic surgery. I don’t know about the ass implant debate, but if you look at older pictures, it’s pretty obvious that she’s had work done on her face. I know there was that one episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians where she tried botox and then had a bad reaction to it, and she “learned her lesson” and decided that she wasn’t into it, but it’s not like any of the Kardashian shows are actually reality shows.
But now there’s this new theory that ever since Kim’s infamous divorce, she’s been getting surgery after surgery. I can totally buy it.
From In Touch via Celebitchy:
Recent photos of Kim Kardashian show her sporting a plumper pout. A friend of Kim’s confirms to In Touch: “Kim is even more addicted to plastic surgery than ever before.”
While the 31-year-old star has always been overly concerned with her looks, plas say she’s become obsessed ever since her October split from Kris Humphries and subsequent fall from grace.
Instead of retreating from the public eye to regroup, Kim’s putting all her focus on her appearance.
“She’s becoming more and more absorbed in her self image,” says a source.
In her latest bid for physical perfection, plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Schulman believes Kim underwent a lip augmentation.
“It was likely done with a filler like Restylane,” he tells In Touch. Celeb makeup artist at Valery Joseph salon Rachel Gangemi agrees: “There is no way lip gloss and lip liner can create that much volume!”
While fillers may be helping her get closet to her beauty ideal, her antics are only driving friends and family further away.
“Her sisters think she’s so vain,” says the source. “They feel like all she cares about is her image.”
Yeah, I have absolutely no problem believing all of this. I mean, just take a gander at that picture up there. See those lips? They’re ridiculous. They are pumped so full of whatever they pump into lips that it’s offensive. And honestly, if Kim makes one more statement about how she’s all natural, then it’s only going to set her image back way more. I think I’m more appalled at the thought of that than by the actual divorce.
What do you guys think? What sort of surgery has Kim had? Something on her eyes? Lip injections? A nose job? Other cosmetic procedures I have no idea even exist? Let me know, friends!
