Kanye West, the fashion designer boyfriend of Kim Kardashian graced New York with his sartorial presence this weekend. He just dropped in to say “Hello!” And also, “Everyone here wears terrible clothes!”
Kris Humphries is going to remain part of the Kardashian clan as long as he can: the New Jersey Nets player is refusing to sign the divorce papers on his 72-day marriage to Kim Kardashian until she “apologizes”for what he is claiming was a staged wedding and admits that their wedding was a for-profit only affair.

When Jason Binn announced his return to the publishing business on Monday—with a multi-platform luxury lifestyle magazine sponsored by Gilt Groupe, Hudson News and Dufry duty free—the response was so big it crashed his computer.
“I tend to go out and meet people and I’m very engaging socially and it’s never happened before,” the Niche Media founder told Off the Record, from his home office in Manhattan. “I’ve had three tech people to my house and I’ve got Gilt people helping me out…it’s great because it’s horrible.”
With a couple of heavy-handed losses and a recent Saturday Night Live sketch addressing the inherent racism in jokes about a certain Chinese (and Taiwanese)-American basketball player, we had hoped that the month of terrible Jeremy Lin puns were over. Yet the New York Post started out the week stronger than ever, with a cover exclaiming “Lin-phomania!” The sexual Lin-nuendo of a headline was an even more troubling evolution of Linsanity, given his Tebow-esque devotion to Christianity. We almost wish that the Knicks point guard loses even more games, so his rise to fame isn’t the Lin-ch pin for more horrific puns. (Oh god, we can’t help it, either! Someone make it stop!)

Celebrities!* They’re just like us! Gawker’s Maureen O’Connor has issued another excellent blog post for her ongoing Hoover-FBI style case file on Kim Kardashian, which now includes empirical evidence that her narcissism is just like your narcissism. And we aren’t even talking about that sex tape you made with Brandy’s brother.
Last night’s Golden Globes—which we covered live!—were notable for yet more star worship than even the perpetually star-worshipping Globes usually get up to, and most of the stars were of a somewhat aging vintage. Awards went to practically anyone who might have been on People’s Most Intriguing People of 1998 list: Steven Spielberg for Read More
Republican candidate and Mormon Mitt Romney proved to audiences last night that he is still indeed, “with it” (as the kids’ say), after dissing President Barack Obama by comparing his campaign promises to the marriage vows of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries.
On a Monday night game in Washington D.C. against the Wizards, Kris Humphries, ex-husband of Kim Kardashian, was booed on the court every time he touched the ball, according to reports. He still managed to finish the game scoring 21 points for his team, including 16 rebounds.
Mr. Humphries, along with the Brooklyn Nets coach Avery Johnson, found the whole thing hilarious.
Kim Kardashian, back from Australia and on the West Coast, kept up her style of tweeting things the rest of the world is dying to know this Christmas. As in:
“Stephen, did you know that despite receiving a new iPhone for Christmas, Kim Kardashian finds people with two phones ‘shady’?”
“No, Robert, I had no idea!”
“Well, me neither!”
