KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN
Love It Or Hate It

The Kardashian Girls Filming Their Reality Show In Woodland Hills

Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian are hard at work, filming new episodes of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians.’ I have a hard time believing Kim Kardashian isn’t filming her great “get my pre-baby body back” odyessey at home, but we’ll see with the next season of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians.’ What most interests me about these pictures, however, are Kourtney’s boots.

Now THOSE are some knee-high boots. One thing I occasionally experience with knee-high boots is that they get a bit warm. That won’t be a problem with Kourtney’s boots. What do you think of them? I think they’re fun and different. These aren’t shoe staples (i.e., if you’re on a budget and only have room for a couple of pairs of boots, these probably shouldn’t be ones you buy), but they’re fun.

KHLOE KARDASHIAN & KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN
Is The Kardashian Empire Crumbling?

Khloe & Kourtney Kardashian Film Their TV Show At Dash

Somebody’s gotta work. Looks like it fell to Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian. Here they are shooting scenes at their store, Dash, for ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians.’ We haven’t seen much of momager Kris Jenner since her talk show got canceled. Kim Kardashian is still hiding out while Kanye West is all smiles at New York Fashion Week (where he’s stepping out solo). Poor Khloe: I’m sure husband Lamar Odom is the only issue she wants to think about right now! Some branding and media experts are telling Radar Online that the Karadshian Empire is crumbling. Marketing experts claim:

“The family quickly closes ranks and silences negative information,” she explains. If Lamar were to break that omertà by exposing their secrets, Goodgold says, the show would likely not be renewed, because the “scope and scale of how they manipulate the media [would truly be] unveiled.”

Jennifer Pozner… agrees, “It’s been proven over and over that they’re masters of business and masters of manipulation. The expectation that anything that we see on TV about their relationships would be real is only the result of the fact that we don’t teach media literacy in this country. People are starting to say, ‘I think we’re over it.’” But because reality shows are very cheap to produce, she says, “E! is probably going to hold on as long as they can despite what the viewers want.”

Older sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney, “Really don’t have anything going for them at this point,” branding expert Rob Frankel says. “Brands are about building trust and value … The Kardashians don’t care about that, they care about marketing, slapping their name on whatever they can until the interest runs out.

“[After 2015], it’s on to [Kendall and Kylie], the other acts that they’ve got coming up.” Kim, Khloe and Kourtney, he says, “were really a disposable property. They never had a strategy to keep that identity going for the long-term.”

OUCH. This all seems to hinge on the idea that contract negotiations are coming up and Lamar’s drug use hurts the family’s brand. I’m not sure I believe it…

KHLOE KARDASHIAN
The Reality Star Doesn’t Know Where Lamar Odom Is

Khloe Kardashian And Lamar Odom At His Daughter's Graduation

Oh this must really be heartbreaking for Khloe Kardashian.  The reality starlet, who has seen her marriage crumble in the past weeks after word of husband Lamar Odom’s alleged drug problems became public, doesn’t currently know where her husband is after he checked himself out of rehab.

According to US Weekly ;

“Khloe doesn’t know where Lamar is.  She’s just exhausted. I don’t think anyone knows where he is at this point.” The source adds that Khloe “cut him off” following a heated showdown over a week ago, in which she confronted Odom about his drug addiction and reported affairs with other women. “She said get out, go get help,” the source says.

Yikes, I really hope that Lamar can get the help he needs and that he and Khloe can work things out because I really like them together.  I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I didn’t see this coming so I really hope that things work out for them.

HARRY CONNICK JR. AND JENNIFER LOPEZ
Officially Confirmed As American Idol Judges

Exclusive... Keith Urban & Harry Connick Jr. Head To "American Idol" Auditions

Well the wait is finally over! After months of deliberation as to who would be the official judges when American Idol returns this fall it was announced today that both Harry Connick Jr. and Jennifer Lopez will be joining Keith Urban at the judges table.  And even though we all thought that Randy Jackson was done with the show it turns out he was just done being a judge because he’s set to return as the in-house mentor, replacing Jimmy Iovine according to Deadline.

I really haven’t watched American Idol in a few years so not sure if this new judging panel will make me tune in again or not, but everyone I speak to really seems to like the addition of Harry Connick Jr.  Hopefully he and JLo will be enough to get people to tune in again!  Will you?

TERESA GIUDICE
She Wants Her Fans To Help Pay For Her Bills!

Teresa and Joe Giudice arrive at federal court

Talk about… awkward. It looks like Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is in such dire need of cash that she’s looking to her fans to help her pay her bills with donations! Yikes! Here’s what we’re reading:

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star will be making a personal appearance to ask her loyal followers to donate money to her legal defense at the Malibu Beach Resort on Thursday night.

“Her supporters and millions of fans around the world strongly believe Teresa will be vindicated soon and are seeking donations for the reality TV star, who has four young children,” a press release about the event reads.

“The group is dedicated to helping Teresa stay out of prison and also help pay any fines or other restitution that Teresa and Joe are ordered to pay.”

What in the world? Tell us, do you think this is right? Should Teresa be asking her FANS to help her out financially?? Is it really their responsibility to do so? Hmm….
