Even Fox execs thought Kris Jenner’s talk show sucked

Kris Jenner‘s talk show bombed – not even Kanye showing off pictures of a then-newborn North West could save it. But since the Kardashian family had such a stronghold over TV, everyone was sorta left wondering why Momager Kris’s show just couldn’t get any ratings. Well, as a Fox exec put it, she’s just not all that interesting.


From The Hollywood Reporter:

On Thursday, in a discussion with The Hollywood Reporter about three new shows Fox will test this summer, Frank Cicha, senior vp and president of programming for the Fox Television Stations, admitted he knew by the time the test ended that Kris wasn’t going to work. “I think she was pretty uninteresting [on camera],” Cicha said. “That was one where [sister company] 20th Television tried to capitalize on a name. … When the camera was on she looked not just like a deer in the headlights, but like a deer that already got hit.”

“It wasn’t a disaster in the ratings,” said Cicha, adding that it would have been an expensive show to produce and wasn’t a good fit for the rest of his station group’s schedule. “When you added it up, it wasn’t a show that made sense for us.”

Damn, that’s cold, Cicha, but so, so true. She’s NOT interesting. No one in that family is interesting and I’m not sure why we have ever acted like any of them are. So glad someone finally had the balls to say it, though.

Would you watch a Chris Brown reality show?

chris brown

I don’t even think my masochist side would allow me to hate watch a Chris Brown reality show, but BET is apparently desperate to secure a deal for a show on the asshole’s life and crimes. Turns out, a lot of people are in the same boat as me in terms of not wanting to have to look at him on their TV screens, but where we differ is that plenty of people in the network’s focus group would tune in just to watch him fuck up, as he obviously would.

From TMZ:

BET is gunning to air a Chris Brown reality show … and they’ve already held focus groups to find out if viewers will flock to their sets or stay away.

Multiple sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … BET has made it clear to several production companies … the network would absolutely air a Chris Brown reality series, chronicling his life after jail.

We’re told several production companies are angling to sign Chris, but so far that hasn’t happened.  If it does, we’re told the show will get on the air.

A focus group was held Tuesday in the San Fernando Valley … asking participants if they’d watch a reality show in which Chris tries to stay on the straight and narrow — free from violence and drugs.

We’re told the group — comprised entirely of African American females — was split, but the majority said they’d watch to see if Chris would screw up.

What do you think – would you watch it?

Best and Worst Celebrity Looks of the Week!

Is there anything left to say about Kim's horrid fashion sense that hasn't been said?

Is there anything left to say about Kim‘s horrid fashion sense that hasn’t been said?

Well look at that — it’s time once again for best and worst celebrity looks of the week! Here’s last week‘s, in case you missed it. This week we’ve got Keira Knightley in a fashion face-off against herself, and more fashion atrocities from Kim Kardashian.

Go through the photos and make your selection for who had the BEST, WORST, and most WTF look of the week! Mine are at the bottom, as always.

Let’s get right down to it, shall we?



Angelina Jolie usually nails it, but those sleeves give her arms a very weird look, and I can’t get past it. They’re like elongated T. Rex arms. Which she does not have. Weird, weird dress.

Proof that Kim Kardashian is a walking Photoshop disaster

Remember how Kim Kardashian tried to say that she never Photoshops her pics? You know, despite how obviously warped they tend to be and how obvious the retouching is?

Well, now we’ve got an undeniable Photoshop disaster on a photo of Kim and her friend Jonathan Cheban in Cannes. While Kim tried to suck in her waist and give herself those trademark hourglass curves, she also managed to erase half of her arm, which is always fun.

Extra hilarious on this one is that she had the nerve to capture it thusly:

Yes, “LOL” indeed. The audacity this woman has is beyond belief.

Robert DeNiro refuses to miss out on the World Cup

When it comes to the World Cup, Robert De Niro is a serious dude. He’s currently in New York City filming a movie called The Intern, but apparently his hotel didn’t have a television and no one had an iPad, because he was desperately looking for a place to watch the game in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighbourhood.

Apparently Warner Bros. emailed a random apartment building asking if DeNiro could watch the game anywhere, and he actually just showed up randomly to someone’s apartment to catch it in the end.

From Business Insider:

The neighbor told Business Insider their apartment building got an email from Warner Bros. asking if they could help De Niro see the game.

“Our lead actor, Robert De Niro, would very much like to watch the World Cup game, today at 12p,” the email said. “Would it be possible to place a small portable satellite on the building rooftop ASAP and run a cable to the street to help facilitate this request?”

According to the neighbor, De Niro apparently ended up getting invited to a nearby house where people were watching the game.

“We got another email from a neighbor saying he talked to the crew and apparently he found a house of people watching it and joined them,” the neighbor said.

That’s cool, I guess – De Niro is legendary – but he’s kinda stealing Bill Murray‘s thing of crashing parties, isn’t he?

Lindsay Lohan actually landed an acting gig

Lindsay Lohan has been traipsing around London lately, claiming that she was looking for work and to escape America, which as a whole is apparently out to get her. While she was dropping hints about joining the theatre world, everyone figured she was just talking shit… but apparently she was telling the truth, and she’s headed to the legendary stages of the West End!

From TMZ:

LiLo will actually be live on stage nightly, doing David Mamet‘s infamous play, “Speed-the-Plow.” Beginning in September, Lohan will play the role of the secretary (there are only three roles in the whole play) a part that was played by Madonna in the original run back in 1988.

This particular play has a recent history of turmoil … it’s the same play Jeremy Piven bowed out of midway through its run … claiming he got sick from eating too much sushi.

It’s a big deal for Lindsay … the only work she’s been getting lately has been to host parties.

Well, sounds like a real exclusive gig, there.

To be honest, we probably should give Lindsay a bit of credit here. The fact that anyone at all is willing to take a chance on hiring her irresponsible, unreliable, drunk ass is kind of a miracle. Surely she won’t fuck this one up, right? Uh… right? (Countdown to disaster starts… now. Something tells me she won’t even make it to her opening night.)
