People Petition For “No More Kardashian”

Uh-oh. I’m sure this is NOT the response Kim Kardashian, her mother/manager Kris Jenner, the rest of the Kardashian clan, or the people at E! were expecting as part of the fallout from Kim’s wedding/divorce drama.

ABC News reports that “thousands” have signed an online petition (it’s here) to E! asking them to take the Kardashian family off the air. The petition’s organizer said:

“In a grass roots effort, we have collected [thousands of] signatures for a petition asking E! Entertainment to remove the Kardashian suite of shows from their programming. We feel 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. I’ll remind you here that the Kardashian family fame largely started with a ‘leaked’ sex tape.”

As of yesterday afternoon, 70,601 people had signed the petition. Goodness! The petition is so popular, the website hosting it said it may take a while for new signatures to show up due to “very heavy traffic.”

I’m guessing the only way to get the Kardashian shows off the air is if there’s a massive ratings drop, but this may be the beginning of the end of the Kardashians as the reigning reality TV personalities. What do you think?

Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher Meet Up At Bruce Willis’ Vacation Home

At first I thought the rumors about Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher were just that- rumors- but then they’ve started keeping such low (and separate) profiles that I’ve started to wonder. Now the couple reportedly spent the past weekend at Bruce Willis’ home in the Turks and Caicos in an effort to work things out.

A source says the couple have been trying to deal with the aftermath of Ashton’s alleged affair in Las Vegas.

“Things have been very strained. [But] they’re trying to figure things out.”

Apparently Ashton has been feeling incredibly stressed, which got much worse when he inadvertently got involved in the Joe Paterno scandal on twitter.

Kim Kardashian Covers Marie Claire

With all that’s happened in the last few weeks, I’m guessing this is one time Kim Kardashian would prefer NOT to be on a magazine cover! But she’s covering the December issue of Marie Claire, and she even talks about her soon-to-be ex-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.”

Famous last words… And Kim also shared the family’s philosophy about doing reality TV.

“We made a pact as a family and said we would be truly authentic because people don’t buy bulls**t. We’ll just be who we are, and – love it or hate it – we have each other. I think that’s what makes it so relatable, because we are not afraid to show crazy things.”

From what I’ve seen of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians,’ I believe that ;). You can read Kim’s entire interview (and see her entire photo shoot: don’t these pictures look great?) in the December issue of Marie Claire, which hits newsstands Tuesday, November 22.

Do NOT Take Videos Of Katie Holmes!

‘Everybody’s on the Run’ singer Noel Gallagher of Oasis is not happy with Katie Holmes right now. Katie and Noel both appeared on ‘Late Show with David Letterman,’ and the two encountered each other at the elevator. Noel described it on his blog:

“We literally bumped into that top Scientologist Katie Holmes on the way into the studio. We came out of the lift and BANG, there she was. Now at this point my mate, and friend of the stars, Scully was doing a bit of filming for my website and managed to capture the moment. She did look a bit miffed at the various North-West accents and some vigorous handshaking, but there was no need to send one of her people over to demand the video be deleted!!!! Un-f***in’-believable. (sic)”

Do you think Katie overreacted or was in the right to get the video deleted?

Kat Von D Says Jesse James Cheated On Her With 19 Women

Who’s really surprised by this one? Kat Von D is opening up about what went wrong with ex-fiance in a Facebook post titled, “Thank You, Jesse James.”

Today I encountered the 19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year.

I kept going back and forth in my mind as to what the best way would be for me to release and let go of any residual feelings remaining from that toxic relationship.  All of this may sound petty or immature to some, but I assure you this is coming from a place of pure honesty and love.

There was a time when I was confident and excited at proving the world wrong, because I believed so deeply in people’s ability to change for the better… I did feel like it would be a positive thing for those who judged Jesse…

Sure, its easy to tell someone, “I told you so” especially if you’re criticizing someone from the outside, but that attitude comes from a place called Ego, and not Love.

I know I deserve a big fat  “I told you so,” from everyone, and wish I didn’t have to say, “You all were more right than you’ll ever know” but you were.

You can read Kat Von D’s entire post here. I go back and forth on the merits of discussing such personal issues publicly, but I have to say, the more I see of Kat Von D, the more impressed I am. At least she admits her mistakes!

Kim Kardashian Hires High-Powered Attorney To Go After Former Publicist

With all the negative fall-out from Kim Kardashian’s lavish wedding and divorce after only 72 days of marriage, I guess Kim can’t afford to let her former publicist’s claims go unanswered.

Remember when I told you about Jonathan Jaxson’s claims that Kim’s wedding was “staged” for publicity? Well, Kim is hitting back by hiring attorney Marty Singer. Apparently, Kim has her publicists sign confidentiality agreements.

But Jonathan told TMZ he isn’t worried.

“I have never signed an agreement dealing with confidentiality with Kim Kardashian.  I have an agreement in my possession that does not have either parties signature on it.”

Oops. I guess you need to make sure those agreements are signed.

Kim Kardashian Wedding “Staged” Claims Her Former Publicist

Kim Kardashian’s former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson, who worked with Kim from 2007 to 2009, spilled the beans on Kim’s supposed PR tricks. (It should be noted, though, that obviously Jonathan wasn’t her publicist when she married Kris Humphries.)

Yet Jonathan feels confident that Kim’s wedding was staged.

“She knew weeks before getting married she didn’t want to do it. She’s never gotten over [ex Reggie Bush].”

I wondered about that, given how long she and Reggie were together (despite periods of separation). Jonathan dished on the media stunts he did pull with Kim.

“I staged several of the moments that the world has seen of her, such as a ring that we alleged was from Reggie Bush. It was December 26, 2007 — I remember the day.

She was going to go shopping with her grandmother and her mom and we said, ‘Let’s do something to get more press for you.’ She said, ‘Perfect. Let me go to a ring store and walk out as if Reggie Bush were proposing to me … I have ring I love and adore — it’s seven carats. I’ll keep it in my purse.’It was calculated to a T and then it was leaked to a magazine.”

Unfortunately, Reggie wasn’t in on the stunt, and that’s the reason he ended his relationship with Kim, according to Jonathan. Jonathan admits Kim didn’t pay him but says he isn’t talking out of bitterness.

“I am out of the industry and I really want to talk about what happens behind the scenes. Some things sound damaging, but in reality I just want to shed light on another part of life that we read about everyday.”

Not sure I believe that, but I suspect what he’s saying is true. What do you think?
