“I empathize. It’s not easy. It’s the hardest thing in the world. People judge you because divorce is seen as failure. [Kim] took a risk. No one should be attacking her. Our attention should be focused on things that are truly scandalous.”
While I’ve always had a lot of admiration for Olivia Wilde’s face, I’ve never really cared much for her words or her actions. Despite that, I think she might have a point here. We shouldn’t be attacking Kim, and we definitely should be focused on truly scandalous things. Like her ass. That’s what Olivia Wilde is saying here, right? We need to focus more on Kim Kardashian’s ass.

From Amy Grindhouse:
Last night, [Jonathan] Jaxson went on Twitter and live-tweeted his suicide attempt. He failed, thankfully: ‘These chest pains worry me…all as I sit here looking at a bottle of round objects. It is too much anymore and tonight I was bullied! I feel like going to a better place then [sic] here on Earth right now. One is trying to destroy my life and I won’t ever win. Suicide I would never promote, but it is me against money and elite and I will never ever ever win… This is no hacker…It is me.’ He blamed the Kardashians for using their money and lawyers to intimidate him into keeping quiet. Since, you know, she’s threatening to sue for calling her a famewhore. Soon after, a friend went on Jaxson’s feed to say: ‘Hey everyone. This is Jons BF and I just am getting here. He left all this up. Medical personal [sic] are here and are taking him now. Thank you… Thank you for getting the police to his house. It was because of you they said. So thank you! I must go now to the hospital.’ RadarOnline.com also reports Jaxson posted a YouTube video of himself crying, talking about being bulled by her and her lawyers. The original video and his Twitter have since been deleted.
The aforementioned Jonathan Jaxson was Kim‘s publicist from 2007-2009 who recently came forward and brought various private emails, ostentatious contracts, and the fake, recycled engagement ring to the rapt attention of the public.
But wait. OK. Live-Tweeting your “suicide attempt” is probably a little bit more than just your standard cry for help, and I think this guy’s got (and had) a lot more problems than he’s letting on – even bigger problems than keeping up with the Kardashians – but I could also totally see where the Kardashian/Jenner family would do everything in their power to keep their little cash cow from entering the light, exposed for the cheap little bovine that she really is. Everything, up to and including malicious threats and bullying. Classy, huh?

You guys might have seen some comments around these parts or on other blogs about a “Kardashian Free Zone Day,” a boycott of the E! channel on November 27th. You also might have seen talk of a petition requesting that E! entirely remove the Kardashians from their programming because “these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption. While some may have begun watching the spectacle as mindless entertainment or as a sort of ‘reality satire,’ it is a sad truth that many young people are looking up to this family and are modeling their appearance and behavior after them.” Right now, the petition has nearly 85,000 signatures, so whatever you’ve seen, people are getting pretty sick of the Kardashians.
Personally, I’m torn. I’d never seen any of the Kardashian shows until this weekend. Don’t tell anybody, but I was really bored and curious, and I watched the first four episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I appreciated the show like I appreciate Jersey Shore: it’s mindless drama that’s just fun to watch. I enjoy giggling at the stupidity of people, and since these people are getting paid ridiculous amounts, I don’t feel bad for it. Everybody wins! Except, I suppose, whatever people actually look up to the Kardashians. Oh, and those girls who were very young when the show started and were almost inevitably warped by Kris Jenner‘s need for money and fame, they didn’t win either.
So really, I don’t know where I stand. I don’t want the young impressionable youth to think that emulating Kim Kardashian is remotely ok, but at the same time, I can’t imagine that Bruce Jenner’s face will ever fail to make me smile. Is it too ambitious to dream that we lived in a society where people made their own choices instead of going with whatever idiot who made her way on television has to say?
Where do you guys stand?

Yeah, you read that correctly: Kim’s marriage is the best time of her life, not “was,” or “would have been if it’d gone on longer than three lunar cycles.”
Kim‘s the cover model for Marie Claire‘s December issue, and the following is excerpts from the interview that was taken just weeks before Kim officially filed for divorce. See, Marie Claire, even YOU were duped.
Here she is on those pesky breaking-up rumors:
“[No] – I feel like where we’re at right now is the best time in my life.”
On her undying love for husband Kris Humphries:
“I’m not worried about him at all. We have a lot of trust, and I don’t think either of us would do anything to break that. It makes life so easy. He’s such a good guy; he is so down-to-earth, and it’s such a reality check. He is a normal guy, and I just want to chill out and be normal and not get glammed up all the time. He gets it. Sometimes my life can be really intimidating for people, but he allows me to work and do what I’ve gotta do.”
On being happy to rush into marital commitment (though she changed her tune days later):
“We felt like, ‘Why wait?’ It’s fun to have a partner who understands your life and lets you be you.”
How she learned her lesson from her first marriage (which lasted a WHOLE FOUR YEARS):
“I was 19, and I didn’t know myself. As unhappy as I was, and as happy as I am now not to be in that relationship, I learned so much from it: who I wanted to be, who I never wanted to be — you take all those issues and move on. I learned how to cook and do a lot of marital things. It definitely taught me what being a wife is all about. I think it means taking care of each other’s needs and being there for someone unconditionally.”
Ha! What a tool, right?

“Hi everyone! I just wanted to thank you guys for all your support these last two weeks. I took a break from blogging for a while, but I’ve missed you guys so much and I want to start sharing my updates with you all again. I’ve been reading all your comments on here and, as always, my loyal blog dolls have been nothing but supportive. You all know who you are, so thank you! I love you guys. Kim xo”
Mm-hmm. This would be Kim Kardashian‘s first post-divorce blog message to all of her “fans,” and by “fans,” I mean “those who actually still have a shred of thinly-stretched tolerance left for her and her fake-ass shenanigans.”
Me, I’m surprised that she still thinks anyone cares. Everyone I talk to who used to give a shit about Kim bailed back when Khloe dumped Kim’s ass in a bathroom stall. Or maybe it was when Amber f*cking Portwood started comparing herself to Kim. That’s a sure sign of career destruction right there.
I ask, then, the only question that makes any sense anymore: are there any Kim fans left out there?
[Crickets. That's all, dude.]

Are you guys into Michael Buble at all? I can’t be sure because while I very rarely read any news about him, in a certain circle of friends of mine, he is considered a god. He is a god who walks among us lowly humans and gives us all the magical gift of his song.
But just in case you don’t feel that way, here’s a lovely little story about a recent Buble concert in which the god himself didn’t hold back on telling his audience how he really felt about the Kardashian katastrophe:
Recently wed crooner Michael Buble ripped into Kim Kardashian onstage at a recent iHeartRadio Live concert in Manhattan’s TriBeCa neighborhood.
According to the New York Post, Buble, 36, pranked his audience at the P.C. Richard & Son Theater when he announced “Please welcome Kim Kardashian [to the stage].” After audible gasps in the audience, he retorted, “Nah, just f*cking with you! That bitch isn’t coming on my stage.”
He dedicated the next song in his set, Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good,” to Kardashian’s future ex-husband Kris Humphries.
“She hurt him, she hurt him! I wish she had hurt me!” crooned the Grammy winner.
You love him now, right? I knew you would!
