17That ‘Huuuuuuge’ Kardashian Sister is Engaged

Kardashian and Odom at the Premier of Whiteout on Sept. 9th

Kim’s words, not mine.

Khloe Kardashian has gotten engaged to her pro-basketball playing L.A. Lakers boyfriend Lamar Odom. As far as quickie engagements go, this one’s fairly rapid- the two have only been dating for about a month.  As far as rushed wedding plans go, this one ranks right up there on the backwoods, banjo-raping, shotgun marriage level of speed.

“Khloe and Lamar want to get married before Lamar has to go away for training, and the [basketball] season starts up [this fall],” a source tells Us of Kardashian, 25, and Odom, 29, who met at a party in L.A.

“They are hoping to pull together a wedding within the next two weeks so they can get married and have time for a honeymoon,” continues the source. “They haven’t decided where they will say ‘I Do,’ but they are scouting out numerous locations, including Khloe’s family home in Calabasas, [Calif.].”

Earlier this month, Odom gushed to Us that he was “very happy” with the star of Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami.

“Khloe is smart and beautiful and that is very hard to find,” he added.

I’d like to offer them my sincerest congratulations on their happy engagement.  Given the speed at which this relationship is traveling, I’ll also go ahead and offer them my sincerest condolences on the divorce.

8In the Twilight of Her Career

DeAnna Pappas twitters about Rachelle Lafevre

In a contest of irrelevancy, Rachelle Lafevre and former Bachelorette, DeAnna Pappas, hung out last night at the pre-Emmy charity gifting suite at the London Hotel in L.A.

The bachelorette tweeted about the encounter and seemed pretty excited about meeting the actress formerly known as Victoria from the Twilight series of films. This makes her one of three people in America who care about Rachelle Lafevre and one of one people in America who care about DeAnna Pappas.

Lafevre commented on recently being fired from the cast of the Twilight: Eclipse film, saying, “That’s the kind of thing you can’t anticipate in a career. It was devastating, I didn’t see it coming.”

Honestly, at this point calling it a “career” is a fine little bit of nomination-worthy acting in itself. Now that she’s been dismissed from what was most likely the biggest acting role she’ll ever have, what route do you think she’ll take? Will it be community theater and autograph sessions with chubby goth kids at  Milwaukee Fantasy-con or an appearance on celebrity Blind Date and a spread in Hustler?

21Nick & Mariah’s Infinite Love


This is gratuitous, but for all you Lambs out there, you know why I’m posting this. How freakin’ happy do Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon look? The two have been married for almost a year and a half, which is still pretty new, but you have to hand it to them: they seem to be making this not-so-conventional relationship really work. This photo of the two of them heading back to their abode after a taping of the Oprah Winfrey Show is just too cute for words.

23Meghan McCain Has Worked My Last Nerve


I’m sure that I will be slaughtered in the comments for saying anything negative about the patron saint of young Republicans, but Meghan McCain is just bizarre. If you follow her Twitter, watched The View last week or read her column on The Daily Beast, you know that she’s stepped out ever-so-bravely about how she wears hair extensions. Good for her, right? However, the fact that she thinks she’s the first woman in the public eye to point out that she doesn’t just “wake up like that” is obnoxious. That sentiment is about as trite as any these days. We get it. Celebrities have stylists, chefs, hair weaves, glam squads, et c. We get it. McCain is not the first to point this out, but if you listened to anything she’s been saying lately, you would think that she is. Or at least that she’s under the impression she is.

Then last night came this doozy. As the tweet posted above says, McCain is not only supportive of Tila Tequila, but she’s “proud” to “call her [her] friend”. Ugh. 1) That’s another over used sentiment. Why should that be treated like an announcement? She should have just written “Yes, even I, a presidential candidates daughter, am willing to befriend the occasional whore.” 2) Way to hop on the bandwagon and further complicate the life of Shawne Merrimen, a man who was cleared of the accusation that he choked Tila after an insane fight that was instigated by his request for a foursome.

I’ve really tried to like McCain, I really have. I wanted to support her efforts to educate the youth through her blogging and writing. I wanted to appreciate her unique perspective for what it was, but I no longer can. Yes, while she’s just like us, up late singing “Lady Marmalade” instead of doing work, she’s also used her birth-given position of power to catapult her to a place where she has much more important things to do than defend Tila Tequila. There are women out there who have suffered from domestic violence, even in just the last 24 hours, who are more deserving of her attention. Additionally, McCain’s wishy-washy stance on what her place in the world is (“people should respect me” vs. “I’m just a normal girl like you!”) just shows me over and over again that she’s not worth my attention and that she is, in fact, completely bizarre.

12Katherine Heigl Gives Us Our First Peek of Naleigh


There’s been a lot of anticipation surrounding the first photos of Nancy Leigh AKA Naleigh, the baby girl that Katherine Heigl and hubby Josh Kelley adopted from Korea earlier this month. The adoption news seemed to come out of nowhere, as even a year ago Heigl was claiming that she had no immediate plans for children. Somewhere along the line, those plans changed and now do Heigl and Kelley not only have Naleigh in their possession, but they’ve just released photos of her on Heigl’s fundraising site. Congrats to the happy family.

8Amy Winehouse is Looking… Better?

Amy's Alright

Amy Winehouse was trotting around London last night with her ex boyfriend Tyler James (who, BTW, is hot.) The singer looked like she’s made some progress since her days smoking crack and holing up in St. Lucia where she supposedly kicked a lot of her drug use. It seems as though Winehouse has put on some much-needed weight and maybe even taken a shower or two since her worst days, which really don’t seem all that long ago. She still however has a couple of bad habits to break. On her walk from the restaurant where they ate dinner to the jazz club where Amy performed a couple of numbers, it was hard not to notice that she was smoking up a storm and still hasn’t quit wearing ballet slippers. She also, as you can see in the gallery, had a big wet stain under her right breast, which either means she’s lactating or was a bit clumsy with her (water?) glass at meal time. Either way, I find it hard to hate on her because she’s seemingly come such a long way from the horrible place she was in not even a year ago.
