Kim Kardashian Splashes Out $65K On Bracelets

It looks like Kim Kardashian’s $115,000 watch will have some company on her wrist.  The reality star just shelled out $64,900 for 3 jade and diamond bangle bracelets that once belonged to Liz Taylor.

A collection of Liz’s jewelry went on the auction block this week (bringing in $116 million!) and Kim was determined to own the bracelets – and reportedly she was successful!

TMZ says Kim believes jade harnesses energy and these will give her a stronger connection Taylor.

Merry Christmas to Kim.  Something else she and Paris Hilton have in common: treating themselves to big ticket goodies!

Kardashians Admit They Have No Talent

Did you see Barbara Walters’ interview with the Kardashian family on her ’10 Most Fascinating People’ special last night? She didn’t pull any punches, from asking Kim about her sex tape to pointing out they had no talent.

Barbara asked Kim about her infamous 2007 sex tape with Ray J, specifically if it was a good idea in the sense of getting her attention. Kim’s response:

“Whatever you do, you might think, I’ve made mistakes in my life for sure.”

Kris Jenner jumped in:

“It was devastating for the whole family. You cry yourself to sleep for a few nights, then you hire an attorney.”

Barbara pointed out that they had no discernible talent: none of them could act, sing, or dance.

“I think it’s more of a challenge for you to go on a reality show, and get people to fall in love with you for being you,” Kim mused.

Added Khloe: “None of us think we have talent. none of us think we can sing or act or dance.”

I didn’t see it, but it doesn’t sound like this went so well. Kim’s wedding fiasco seems to be the beginning of a downfall. What do you think? You can watch a clip here

Kendall And Kylie Jenner Are Getting Their Own Spin-Off

Although aspiring model Kendall Jenner scored a reality special for her sweet 16, it looks like that was just the beginning! According to reports, Kendall and her younger sister Kylie will soon be getting a spin-off of their very own!

After speaking to the press last week, NBCU Cable Entertainment and Cable Studios Chairman Bonnie Hammer announced that she hoped for “two, three, even four new Kardashian spin-offs,” potentially putting the stylish sisters as the focus of one and their older brother Rob at the center of another.

Even though the cameras have yet to roll on these still-untitled projects, Ms. Hammer plans to continue the successful streak between E! and the Kardashians… as long as the famous family stays in the limelight.

“I think it will have its own life expectancy,” said Ms. Hammer.”And we’ll just go along with it and help hone what’s right for E! and what’s not right for E! as we develop a whole other world.”

With shocking divorces and surprise pregnancies, I think it’s safe to say that the larger-than-life Kardashians aren’t going away anytime soon!

“Everything they do is bigger in life,” said Ms. Hammer to the Hollywood Reporter. “It’s just part of their DNA.”

As season two of Kourtney and Kim Take New York continues to win in the ratings, and with another season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians on the way, are you going to be adding ANOTHER Kardashian-centric show on your “must-watch” list?

Kim Kardashian Just Wants To Move On From Kris Humphries

Hmmm… I thought things might get ugly between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries when he filed for an annulment, claiming Kim had defrauded him into marrying her for her reality TV show. But people close to Kim are saying she doesn’t want a fight with her soon-to-be ex-husband.

“The filing is, of course, upsetting. She respects Kris and just wants them both to find peace and move on. … Kim doesn’t want a battle. Kim is sad how things ended up. The split was a devastating decision from the beginning.”

So would Kim actually be willing to admit to defrauding Kris so he can get the annulment? He apparently wants the annulment for religious reasons, and if a judge doesn’t grant an annulment, then he wants to petition for a legal separation that extends indefinitely (even if it means he can’t marry again).

TMZ reports its unlikely Kris will be able to prove fraud, and at that point a judge is likely to grant Kim’s divorce petition, so she’s probably just hoping for that. And the story goes on….

Report: Kris Humphries Claims Kim Kardashian Defrauded Him As Grounds For Annulment

Oh, this could get ugly. Earlier today I told you about how Kris Humphries plans to file for a legal separation rather than divorce from Kim Kardashian. The idea, according to sources close to Kris, is to pave the way for an annulment.

However, according to TMZ, the grounds for an annulment in California are: proof of impotency, incest, bigamy, unsound mind, force or fraud.

Which reason does Kris plan to use? Fraud, according to TMZ, and Kim reportedly is already telling friends she did NOT defraud Kris into marrying her. This could get REALLY ugly. It would probably be less hostile if Kris did just sue her.

Kim Kardashian Excited To Be An Aunt Again

More great timing. Now I’m sure Kim Kardashian knew about Kourtney’s big news (that she and Scott Disick are expecting baby #2!) before she talked about her fears that she may not have kids of her own, but it can’t be any less awkward to have to play all of this out in public.

So yesterday Kim talked about her fear that she won’t be able to have kids, today Kourtney announces she’s pregnant with her second child, and Kim is publicly gushing over how happy she is that she’ll be an aunt again.

“This is such a blessing and the whole family is beyond thrilled! I am so excited for Kourt and Scott. Mason is the best baby ever and I can’t wait to be an aunt again!”

Kourtney admitted to Us Weekly that she knows you’re supposed to wait until at least twelve weeks before making public announcements about being pregnant, but she said “I feel confident.”

And, let’s face it, the Kardashians could use some exciting upbeat news these days. Daniel Craig has a point about the loss of privacy. Now I’m not trying to suggest Kim isn’t genuinely happy for Kourtney. I’m just guessing that her feelings may be complicated given her own concerns. I guess that’s real life for you, huh?

Kris Humphries Files For Separation- Not Divorce- From Kim Kardashian

It sounds like Kris Humphries is doing his best to erase this whole period from his life! He may not have any plans to sue his estranged wife, but he reportedly plans to file for a separation from his wife of 72 days, Kim Kardashian. Why? In an effort to get the marriage annuled.

A source tells that Kris wants to clear the record of ever having been married to Kim. I wonder what the grounds will be for the annulment (as opposed to a divorce)?

Meanwhile, reports say Kris watched the season premiere of ‘Kourtney & Kim Take New York‘ in “utter horror” about how he was portrayed. An insider says:

“… it’s just not a true depiction about what was actually going on between Kim and Kris. Kris did jokingly say that Kim ate too much wedding cake, but what viewers didn’t see was Kim nagging Kris about working.

“There was nothing he could do about the NBA lockout, he was working out, and getting ready for the upcoming season, and he is a free agent. It was actually Kim’s idea that Kris go back to Minnesota to train and give them some distance.

“Kris wasn’t surprised that he was made to look bad. He will just be relieved when the show is over, and his divorce is final. Kris is focusing on signing a NBA contract and getting back to work.”

Unfortunately for Kris- and the No More Kardashian petition people- ‘Kourtney & Kim Take New York’ is enjoying higher ratings than last season, so I’m guessing the Kardashians aren’t going anywhere. Yet.
