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.

Some might say she isn’t even the hottest woman to have shared a bed with Brad Pitt, but Men’s Health readers disagree:
According to a new poll from that magazine, Jennifer Aniston is the Hottest Woman of All-Time. A questionable choice? Maybe? But have you seen the following photo?1?
“Funny is sexy, and Jennifer Aniston is funny,” the publication explains. “Her down-to-earth persona makes her seem attainable… And her all-too-human love life off screen inspires sympathy that not even a string of bland romantic comedies can diminish. Other sex symbols drift toward one-dimensionality,More >
Just one month after undergoing a double lumpectomy, Giuliana Rancic is on the mend, optimistic and extolling the virtues of her early breast cancer detection.
“I’m hanging in there,” she tells Parade. “I have good days and bad days.”
Once a self-proclaimed “nervous wreck” about revealing her health news, the E! host says she’s grateful for the outpouring of support she has received.
“I know it sounds so cliché, but I think it helped me recover much quicker, and it got me in better spirits,” Rancic, 36, says of the fan feedback. “The word I kept seeing over and over again was ‘strong.’More >
The Duchess is a woman of her word.
Visiting London’s Royal Marsden Hospital last month, Kate Middleton met with several young cancer patients, one of whom was 9-year-old Fabian Bate.
During their chat, he informed Kate that his family kept a blog, and Middleton vowed to pay it a visit and leave a message. She did, and then some.
Prince William’s wife sent out a personalized and heartwarming letter to Fabian, who was diagnosed with leukemia in 2006, which he in turn posted online.
“Despite the enormously demanding course of treatment, I was so touched by your strength of character, andMore >
Stop us if you’ve heard this one, but Lindsay Lohan is a Class A F–k-Up whose myriad probation violations have her potentially facing a serious jail sentence.
The case is beyond complicated, but the actress could be sentenced to a year and a half in jail if Judge Stephanie Sautner decides she violated her probation.
Lohan’s biggest problem is her criminal history.
Based on a 120-day suspended sentence for shoplifting, time served under houseMore >
Counting Crows singer Adam Duritz just went to his Facebook page and explained that he suffers from a “severe mental illness,” but that he is trying to ween himself off of his medication despite the “vicious withdrawal symptoms.”
“I was f**king crazy. I needed meds. I took meds. Now I’m less crazy. I need less meds. I’m stopping meds,” the 46-year-old writes.
Duritz admits that he needs medication to keep himself balanced, but has cut his Lithium dosage by half. How’s that going? “Not so good.”
Lithium is a common mood-stabilizer. “Gotta keep pushing/get off this sh*t,” he adds. “GoingMore >
Announcing her bid for the presidency Monday, Michele Bachmann noted that she shares her birthplace of Waterloo, Iowa, with acting legend John Wayne.
“Just like John Wayne is from Waterloo, Iowa, that’s the kind of spirit I have too. It’s embracing America. It’s sacrificing for America,” Bachmann said.
The problem? The Duke is from Winterset, Iowa, about 150 miles away. John Wayne Gacy, the notorious rapist and serial killer, hails from Waterloo.
While an honest mistake, and no big deal in the grand scheme, such gaffes and other ridiculous Michele BachmannMore >
Bristol Palin says that despite the terrible decision she made when she gave it up to Levi Johnston while drunk in a tent, it was consensual all the way.
The topic came up on Good Morning America, with Bristol standing by the statement she makes in her book … that Levi “stole” her virginity.
The eldest daughter of Sarah Palin gave it up when she was just 15. She says she used the word “stolen” because “that’s what it felt like.”
The book, entitled Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, describes the big night. Bristol, after getting plowed on wine coolers, got … y’know.

She still plans to lose more weight, but actress Carrie Fisher’s life has already changed for the better since she’s shed 30 pounds with the help of Jenny Craig.
The Star Wars star, a spokeswoman for Jenny Craig, sought help last fall after tipping the scale at 180 pounds. She’s already lost a good chunk of that:
“I had failed with so many diets, so losing any amount of weight seemed crazy,” says Fisher, who also made headlinesMore >
Former half-term governor and current famous person Sarah Palin slammed Michelle Obama on Twitter today for inviting Common to the White House.
Her beef? Palin and some others aren’t thrilled that the rapper and actor promotes healthy diets once rhymed about burning President George W. Bush.
“Oh lovely, White House,” tweeted the ex-veep hopeful, making sarcastic reference to a story on Common and Michelle Obama in the Daily Caller.
The conservative website resurrected a Common aimed at Dubya by transcribing lyrics from a 2007 YouTube video of a past performance of “Letter to theMore >
Fame and/or fortune may either be one of the three wishes you’d ask a genie from the magic lamp. Beauty and/or talent could be on there too. But it’s just amazing and sometimes downright unfair how some people in this earth can just have all of them and yet life still manages to throw a mean curve ball! Catherine Zeta-Jones, has always been that celebrity who shines with it all! The 41 yr old Welsh actress seemed to be unstoppable in her career, unfading with her beauty, blessed with a solid marriage to Michael Douglas and just last year… the man in her life was diagnosed with stage 4More >
Earlier this week, Michaele Salahi was kicked off Celebrity Rehab because she lacked the one thing people entering rehab typically possess – addiction.
No clue why the show didn’t establish this ahead of time, but Michaele’s husband, Tareq Salahi is threatening to sue, and that’s not even the half of it.
According to her husband Tareq, Michaele only agreed to do Celebrity Rehab to get help from Dr. Drew for a pre-existing condition: Multiple Sclerosis.
“She was leaning on Dr. Drew who is a respected doctor to get her through some of the issues after the White House,” says fellow partyMore >
The Salahis are idiots who need to take a long walk off a short pier.
We may have just risked litigation by saying that, because White House party crasher turned loser reality star Tareq Salahi is hinting that he may sue Celebrity Rehab for illegally firing his wife because of her “health condition.”
It’s unclear what “condition” Tareq is referring to, but whatever.
Barack would not approve of this nonsense.
Michaele Salahi has said that she suffers from multiple sclerosis, which we feel bad about and all, but milking it for Z-list fame won’t get you sympathy.More >
