Kim Kardashian, at the end of the day, is just not that interesting.
She’s rich. She has above-average looks and siblings with names also beginning in K. Ray J made love to her and filmed it from numerous angles. She’s dated a lot of professional athletes. She got fake married on TV. You know the story.
Despite ridiculous overexposure and a personality rivaling drying paint on the excitement scale, she rakes in monstrous amounts of kash just for being her. Six hundred grand, astonishingly, for showing up Saturday at Tao Las Vegas:

This gives new meaning to the phrase “Picture to Burn” … or something.
Procter & Gamble recently pulled a CoverGirl print ad featuring singer Taylor Swift in the UK because it was among a group of ads cited by a watchdog for excessive Photoshop use. Yes, there is seriously a consumer watchdog group for that.
Take a look at the yanked Taylor Swift image below:
The National Advertising Division (NAD), the ad industry’s self-regulatory body created to review factual claims in national advertisements, issued a statement saying:

Kris Humphries is a free agent no more … professionally anyway.
His old NBA team, the New Jersey Nets, have signed him to a one-year contract reportedly worth $8 million for the coming season, which opens next week.
Humphries, who has been training in his native Minnesota, was not offered a new deal to return for a second season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York.
See? Not everybody wants to dump Kris Humphries!
Kris became an unrestricted free agent after last season, averaging 10 points and 10 rebounds in what was by far the best of his seven seasons as a pro.
He quickly went from beingMore >
Kim Kardashian is denying a series of celebrity gossip reports that she attended a fashion show and spent a fortune on herself during her recent visit to Haiti.
The star took to her blog to shoot down “malicious” rumors about her trip to the Caribbean country, which was hit by a earthquake in 2010, with her mom.
She and Kris Jenner traveled there for positive PR to learn more about the charity We Advance, not for a fashion show, which has been rumored this week.
“Our mission was to learn more about [Maria Bello's] charity, We Advance,” she says, “and meet the Haitian people who have madeMore >
Proving that NBC personnel suck at holding their liquor as well as producing TV shows and updating their website, correspondent Jay Gray was arrested last Monday after allegedly getting wasted at a party thrown by Jerry Sandusky’s lawyer.
Gray was invited by attorney Joe Amendola to watch the New York Giants game the night of December 11, along with reporters from other media outlets, all of whom were vying for an exclusive interview with disgraced former PSU coach Sandusky.
Gray got “really drunk” during the game – won by the Giants over Dallas, 37-34, afterMore >
A Real Housewife is about to make a real impact on Glee.
NeNe Leakes confirmed today via Twitter that she’s coming on board this Fox hit as a rival to Jane Lynch’s Sue Sylvester, writing on the social network:
Running through the house screaming Gleeeeee! Coach Roz Washington is gonna get that Sue Sylvester! I’m so proud of myself… Running through the house screaming Gleeeeee! Coach Roz Washington is gonna get that Sue Sylvester! I’m so proud of myself.
It’s unclear whether or not Leakes will sing on the series, but she’ll be featured because a returning Chord Overstreet – as Sam Evans –More >
A fan of Kris Humphries approached Jonathan Cheban on the street in New York City yesterday and tossed flour in his face, and we know what you’re thinking:
Kris Humphries has fans?!?
TMZ has a photo of the incident, as well as a quote from someone on the scene, who overheard the flour-thrower yell: “This is for Kris Humphries!”
Humphries and Cheban – Kim Kardashian’s BFF and the star of Spin Crowd – have never gotten along well. The latter has accused the former of referring to him as “gay,” a charge Kris denies and one he has reportedly considered legal action over.
A rep for the NBAMore >
Might Kim Kardashian actually be using her fame for the benefit of someone else for a change? Or is her PR team simply orchestrating opportunities to improve her floundering image?
The answer is most likely a combination of each, but the facts are these: Kim is currently in Haiti – along with Kris Jenner, designer Donna Karen and actresses Patricia Arquette and Maria Bello – as part of We Advance, an organization that aims to “advance the health, safety and well being of women throughout Haiti,” according to its website.
“She’s been there for two days,” an insider tells Us Weekly. “SheMore >
Miley Cyrus wants her fans to know something: it’s not you. It’s me.
The superstar is taking another break from Twitter, though she isn’t going to the extreme lengths she went to in 2009 and axing her account. So, what’s going on? Why the relative silence since sending out the Halloween photo below?
“Sorry I havent been tweeting as much!” Cyrus wrote on Friday. “I deleted the twitter ap off of my phone. Just taking some “ME” time! =] love yall.”
Miley has suffered through a love/hate relationship with the social network over the years, once telling followers she would no longer be usingMore >
Dudley O’Shaughnessy has totally hung out with Rihanna a couple of times recently, but calling that “dating” would be premature, he says. Why? He’s just too busy!
Despite going out with her more than once, Dud told The Mirror that he’s too busy to continue anything with the singer. The British model/boxer, 21, tells the paper:
“We had fun together, but I don’t know when I will see her again to be honest.”
“My career is my biggest priority right now,” said the star of her latest music video, before adding: “I’d like to go to America soon … but for work.”

His team has been eliminated from the American League Playoffs. Her new show is likely getting canceled.
So why wouldn’t Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly get back together?!?
The long-time couple broke up in August due to scheduling conflicts, but with more free time ahead than either had hoped for, sources tell The New York Post that a reconciliation is possible. Jeter flew to see Kelly in Miami this week.
“They met up to try and figure it out,” said a source of the South Beach rendezvous. “They are trying to see what the future holds for them.”
For Jeter, it holds out hope that the YankeesMore >
Justin Bieber is already in the holiday spirit.
The singer debuted the first songs off his upcoming Christmas album last week in Brazil, surprising fans with a rendition of “Mistletoe.” Listen here!
Now, six days prior to the release of that single’s official music video, Bieber is giving his followers a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of it.
“Happy holidays to all my fans. You guys are amazing. Thank you for all of your support this Christmas season and I love you guys so much,” Justin says as part of the following footage, which includes a smooch with a girl who is not SelenaMore >
Alexander Skarsgard gets naked a lot in True Blood. This fact gets written about almost as often as anything else related to the HBO series, and the Swedish actor doesn’t understand why.
“[Parents] in the States freak out if their kids see a nipple or a butt cheek, but at the same time they’re OK with their kids watching people bash each other’s heads in with baseball bats,” the star says in the latest issue of Out magazine.
From where Skarsgard hails, nudity isn’t a huge deal. That may be due to the “cold dark winters” in his native country, which prompted the actor to joke:
“That’s theMore >
Given his personal history, J.R. Martinez couldn’t possibly top last week’s ode to fallen servicemen and women on Dancing With the Stars. But his Pink Panther-themed tango – perfectly attuned to breast cancer awareness month – was still terrific.
Even if he weren’t a good dancer (and he is), he’d be a joy to watch.
Every waking moment he leads by example, illustrating with his scarred face and body that it’s possible to move beyond the doubt, despair and depression and reclaim a meaningful existence, his story becomes more remarkable.
Here’s his performance last night, good enough forMore >
Move over, Alyce Crawford. You may not have Leo to yourself. Yet.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s recent split with Blake Lively may have left him seeing double Down Under, according to Sydney’s Daily Telegraph (via People) where he’s been linked to not merely one, but hot two models. Stunning news, we know.
The latest? Kendal Schuler, 20. Here’s a photo of her …
While in Sydney filming The Great Gatsby for director Baz Luhrmann, DiCaprio has been hitting up the Beach Haus nightclub and “meeting the Aussie girls.”
Hard to blame the guy.
Earlier this month, the hunky star was “really into” AlyceMore >
