Somebody Threw A Bunch of Flour on Kim Kardashian Last Night

I’m not going to pretend to understand why some people do the things that they do. So much about human behavior baffles me, and it would take a whole lot more than a little intro paragraph for me to get into that. But I will say that while I don’t understand a whole lot of what people do, that doesn’t mean I can’t get any amusement from it.

Now cue the flour bomb on Kim Kardashian:

Here’s the story from E!:

The reality star was doing interviews at a launch party held at the London Hotel in West Hollywood for her new fragrance True Reflection tonight, when—out of nowhere—a younger female fan (we guess you could call her that) threw an entire bag of flour on Kim.

Was she super P.O.’ed?

Not at all!

“That probably is the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that ever happened to me,” Kim told us. “Like I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that’s a whole lot of translucent powder right there,” she said, laughing off the entire ordeal.

Kris Jenner commented on the “festive” event, telling us, “If anybody comes at me with something, call security.”

Khloè Kardashian Odom was not at the event but tweeted, “I wish I was with my sister tonight. I bet you that woman wouldn’t have dared tried a thing…”

The mystery woman tried to run away, but Kardashian’s rep held her and security escorted her away. According to a press release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Kim did not want to press charges but a non-criminal battery report was still filed. The woman was later released.

Like a lady, Kim walked away calmly after the initial assault, got cleaned up and returned back to the carpet about 10 minutes later.

There’s no exact reasoning as to why this woman did what she did, but some media members said they heard her saying something about fur (uh-oh).

Regardless, everyone was cheering and applauding our Kimmy once she returned. What a good sport!

TMZ adds that the fire department was called to “examine the powder and deal with any possible danger,” as if anyone hated Kim Kardashian enough to throw a big ol’ handful of anthrax on her. On second thought

Speaking of throwing a handful of powder on someone, what is your stance on that? This is obviously less colorful than the far superior glitter bomb, but is anything like that ever ok? I think my hesitation to take one side or the other is because while glitter is one of my favorite things and I would love nothing more than to get a glitter bomb straight to the face, I would be mad pissed if some bitch came up and threw a handful of flour at my head. There would be serious words had with the woman that did that to me, so I guess I kind of have to hand it to Kim here for showing that much composure.

What do you guys think?

Kim Kardashian’s BFF Is Pissed at Jon Hamm

A photo of Jonathan Cheban and Kim Kardashian

Some of you guys probably know who Jonathan Cheban is. He’s on the Kardashian shows quite a bit, and he had his very own show called The Spin Crowd. Most importantly, he happens to be the very best friend of dear Kim Kardashian, and that’s all you need to know right now.

Well, no, you also need to know about all that hullabaloo with Jon Hamm. We’ve covered it quite a bit, but in case you need an update, Jon Hamm pretty much called Kim Kardashian a f*cking idiot, then Kim said that Jon’s words were careless, and then Jon said that no, his words were accurate, and then Kim said that “we’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another.” Got it?

And now here’s where BFF Jonathan jumps in to talk some trash on Kim’s behalf:

Guess Jonathan Cheban isn’t a Don Draper fan.

The reality star and Kim Kardashian’s best friend went off on Jon Hamm — who famously criticized Kardashian, 31, in a recent interview — during a chat with Us Weekly on Tuesday night.

“I think Jon Hamm needs to just shut up and stop being such a mad man!” the Spin Crowd star sniped at Ocean Drive magazine’s bash for cover star Nicole Richie at Vesper in Miami Beach, Florida. “He needs to mind his own business, because Kim works hard. They do different things –it’s a whole different world.”

Kardashian’s bestie Cheban argued that she is more famous than Hamm — and will be so for a long time.

“Put Jon Hamm in a mall, and more people will go up to the people working at the Burger King than they will to him,” he told Us. “Bring Kim to a mall and there will be a riot. They’re in two different businesses. Kim’s pop culture and what people like.”

Cheban’s not sure about Hamm’s staying power. “It’s a lot of work, and she’s here to stay. Let’s see where he is after Mad Men.”

Whoa. Whoa. I know that Jon Hamm is a new love of ours, but that doesn’t mean that I think this is any less crazy. “Let’s see where he is after Mad Men,” honestly? He’ll probably be working steadily in film and television like he was for the seven years before Mad Men existed. Maybe this is just a hunch, but I have a feeling he’s going to be just fine after Mad Men.

Is this weird bitchy sense of superiority that surrounds the Kardashians contagious? Because boyfriend here seems to have caught it. This is a clear case of “sit down and shut your stupid mouth,” Jonathan Cheban, and I sincerely hope that you have learned from it.

Kim Kardashian Doesn’t Regret That Whole Marriage Thing

But first, we need to talk about those pants. What person who calls herself a designer thinks it’s acceptable to go outside wearing ripped up white jeans? Because that person needs to reconsider every single choice she ever made. Seriously, take a moment to just study those pants. They’re appalling, right?

But yeah, Kim Kardashian is talking about her marriage to poor Kris Humphries again. It’s more of the hopeless romantic shtick, but she gives it an interesting little spin. Check it out:

We definitely know that some of Kim Kardashian’s closest loved ones had their reservations on her marriage with Kris Humphries (Hi, Khloé!).

So why didn’t Kim listen to them?

“I’m a person, when I’m in love, you can’t tell me anything,” she told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. “And you gotta go through it yourself. So, I did what I believed in doing, and sometimes you don’t want to hear what your family has to say.

“You look back and you’re like, ‘OK, that was a sign,’ or, you know, ‘Maybe I should have listened to them.’ But, I wouldn’t have been who I am today had I not gone through that.”

And for all you skeptics who feel the cameras changed the outcome of how things went down, K.K. explains that wasn’t the case at all.

“I truly, honestly believe it would have been the same thing [had the cameras not been around]. We are exactly who we are, whether the cameras are on or off, and that’s why I love my family so much. What you see is what you get. I showed my life and the reality of my life and it might not be pretty all the time, but it’s who I am and I learned so much from it.”

See, Kim is doing the whole “I don’t regret what happened because it made me who I am today” routine, which is admittedly a good one. I think that’s usually a really healthy approach to things that happened in your past, but here’s the thing: Kim Kardashian is too ridiculous to have a really healthy approach to anything. I’m not sure if “I wouldn’t have been who I am today had I not gone through that” applies when what you went through happened about six months ago, was obviously very well planned out, and you’re still being a dumbass about it.

But hey, look at those jeans, you guys. I guess we can’t really hold Kim up to normal standards when she’s walking around in that catastrophe, can we?

Someone Else is Slamming Kim Kardashian Now

Even those across the pond hate Kim Kardashian. Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be. The UK is the land of good manners, tea, Harry Potter, and James Bond. Do you honestly think they’d stand for BS like Kim Kardashian and her royally f-cked up existence? Come on now.

Yup, Jason Statham (or the Transporter; or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley‘s dude) is the most recent in a string of actual celebrities who are throwing Kim and her over-inflated … well, everything, under the bus. Statham was asked if he thought of himself as a ‘brand’ in an interview with Details magazine, and this was his response:

“F-ck no. Why should I? … People see a guaranteed $30 million a film as a brand in need of management. F-ck ‘em. Kim Kardashian’s a brand.”

Because you all remember Jon Hamm’s recent statements about Kim and her blatantly manufactured life and his universal dislike for reality stars the world ’round, don’t you? If not, here’s a little reminder:

“Whether it’s Kim Kardashian or Paris Hilton or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a f*cking idiot is a valuable commodity … ”

Then there was Daniel Craig, another hot Brit who, in the past, also claimed that Kim Kardashian and her entire family is a big, stinking pile of regurgitated cud that’s just too nasty to swallow, said this, too:

“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?”

And even as late as last year, celebrities were mocking Kim over the fact that she’s a useless skank who can do no more than lay on her back and look plastic-pretty for a living. Take my boy Jonah Hill for example. He kind of ushered in all of the celebrity Kardashian-bashing:

“That’s [the Kardashian success] all a joke. The truth of it is, I have friends who work in TV and the Kardashians get higher ratings than their TV shows. Shows that people actually work hard on—writing and creating and trying to tell their stories. The fact that the Kardashians could be more popular than a show like Mad Men is disgusting.”

So with regard to Statham’s recent statements, what’s your defense going to be to this one, Kim? “Oh, he just wants to hit this?” Will that be it? Because oddly enough, there might be a grain of truth to that statement. Just not in the way you might be thinking, girl. It’s not just women who hate you because they’re “jealous” – looks like this time around it’s all men figuratively (oh, and literally) taking a piss on Kim. Rather thought-provoking if you ask me.

Normally I’d come to the defense of a person who was under such fire and scrutiny and criticism from, you know, everyone, because it’s got to suck when everyone hates you, but this time? Well. I think I’d rather just kick my heels up and watch the beautiful f-ckery unfold. Because it inevitably will. I mean, have you ever seen such public dislike aimed toward a particular celebrity who didn’t repeatedly break the law, beat a significant other, sodomize kids, or kill somebody? No? Me either.

Quotables: Jon Hamm Isn’t Done With Kim Kardashian Yet

“I don’t think they were careless. I think they were accurate. It’s a part of our culture that I certainly don’t identify with, and I don’t really understand the appeal of it other than in a sort of car crash sensibility. And it’s not something that I partake in or enjoy, but it is what is and here we are … There are a lot of channels on the dials and those channels need to be filled up with things … It’s different strokes for different folks.”

I so love this. SO SO SO.

Remember how Jon Hamm said this about reality stars last week, Kim Kardashian specifically?:

“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.”

And then Kim said this, in response?:

“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.”

Well, the first quote up top there is what Jon Hamm had to say to Kim, and I’m thinking that this will be the death blow in the match of words between he and Kim. I mean, what could Kim possibly have to say in response to this? If anything, I’m thinking it’d be something along the lines of, “Yeah? Yeah? Well … you’re, like, racist because I sleep with men of varying races and ethnicities all of the f-cking time and you don’t, Jon Hamm. Now what, bitch? Everybody look at Jon Hamm, he’s RACIST! Now WATCH ME DESIGN A CHEAP PURSE.” To which Jon’s response would be something like, “Um … Case and point.” I could definitely see this going down, just like I could see this vapid ho drag this thing out much longer than it needs to. After all, she kind of coined the phrase “there’s no such thing as bad publicity,” right?

Bottom line, I think Emily’s right (as I normally do). I think we really SHOULD start loving pretty hardcore on Jon Hamm, because not only is he talented and handsome, he tells it like it is and that’s a rare commodity in Hollywood these days, friends.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries Both Want An Annulment

A photo of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

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.

From TMZ:

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.

And Now the Kardashians Have a Lingerie Line, Too

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.
