Kim Kardashian and Katie Couric are not friends. The two fell out after Katie wondered out loud why the Kardashians were famous. Katie was quoted telling In Touch, “I don’t understand – why are they so famous? I think it’s mostly teenage girls that are interested.”
Earlier today, Kim posted a photo of Katie's baby gift for her and Kanye's infant, North West. Katie's card reads in part: "Dear Kim and Kanye, Congratulations on the birth of your baby girl..."
Everybody loves a winner, especially bandwagon jumpers. Two famous bandwagon jumpers were rebuffed by the repeat NBA World Champions Miami HEAT yesterday. Rapper Drake was turned away when he tried to gain access to the Miami Heat locker room to join the celebrations after the Heat clinched the NBA title in game 7. When his famous face didn't get him through the door, he reportedly lied and said "I'm media!"
The tense verbal exchange between President Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney during Tuesday's presidential debate stirred anger in Romney's son, Tagg Romney.
The GOP challenger's son was a guest on a North Carolina radio show when he was asked how he felt the moment Obama accused his father of being a liar.
Tagg said he wanted to jump out of his seat and "rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him.” Tagg added that the thought of being tackled and stomped by the Secret Service was the only thing holding him back.
Troubled music producer Kanye West became enraged when a member of the paparazzi got too close to him and his beard, Kim Kardashian after they dined at the Prime 112 in South Beach on Sunday. The paparazzi simply asked Kim to comment on the fact that her ex-boyfriend, Reggie Bush, got a groupie knocked up.
Kim grabbed ahold of Kanye's arm as he lashed out at the photog in an attempt to grab the pap's camera. Oh, did I mention that the paparazzi was a female?
It takes a real man to keep his head when all around him are losing theirs. Kanye West is obviously a coward!

You gon' learn to listen to your auntie when I tell you something...
According to gossip website TMZ, American Idol winner Jennifer Hudson is calling BS on the Mariah/Nicki Minaj fake feud. I agree with J-Hud. It's funny how the media (and bloggers) run wild with every silly thing these celebrities do for attention.
A Cleveland city bus driver lost his cool and punched a teenage girl for mouthing off at him during his bus route. The driver then threw the girl off the bus. It is clear that standard procedure was not followed in this case. The bus driver now faces disciplinary action which may include termination. The assault was captured on a passenger's cell phone and posted on Worldstarhiphop.com.
I still believe the whole Nicki vs Mariah public squabble is a publicity stunt to boost TV ratings for American Idol. Even if they don't like each other, why wait until they are both signed to "American Idol" to start showing their animosity to each other in public?
At any time Mariah and Nicki could have taken their disagreements to Twitter like every other celebrity.
One noted blogger, Dr. Boyce Watkins, is concerned that -- even if this is a publicity stunt -- what kind of message are these women sending to their young fans?
"When celebrities and role models behave this way on television, it should concern us all," he writes on Yourblackword.net.
"It seems that black women fighting and trying to murder one another has become the trend of the day, and quite frankly, it’s making me sick."
How ironic is it that a gay man is featured on the cover of a magazine called Snatch? As you know, the word "snatch" is a slang term for a woman's intimate parts -- which we now know Frank wants no part of.
Ocean, 24, became something of a cause célebre among the LGBT community when he came out to his fans and the world just days before the release of his new album, Channel Orange. Many within the LGBT and music communities reached out publicly and privately to the effeminate singer to show their support.
Anderson Cooper is letting Star Jones know that he is not the one to mess with. Jones, 50, irked Cooper's nerves when she accused him of coming out of the closet to boost the ratings of his syndicated talk show, Anderson Live.
In a scathing and brutal response, Anderson told Bravo's Andy Cohen that Star Jones used her wedding to get free products and to boost her own ratings.
"I haven't thought about Star Jones in I don't know how long. I was unaware she was even on TV still," said Cooper, 45.
Mitt Romney came away the clear winner in tonight's first presidential debate. President Obama was on the ropes all evening as he struggled to stay on the defensive. It was embarrassing for the Obama camp.
Maybe Michelle Obama should taken her husband's place at the podium?
The Republican presidential candidate scored points on facts and style. Obama seemed bored and unprepared as Romney schooled him on energy and tax reform.
“We’ve got 23 million people out of work or stopped looking for work in this country ... economic growth this year slower than last year, and last year slower than the year before," said Romney, who was precise, concise and presidential.
American Idol's TV ratings has sunk to less than half of what it was in its heyday during the 1990s. Naturally, FOX is desperate for something (other than screeching singers) to draw viewers back. So the show's producers hire loud mouthed celebrities to replace the vocally-challenged singers as the program's biggest draw.
Enter Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey to save the day for FOX: Let the publicity stunts begin.
The two new AI judges were conveniently filmed hurling obscenities at each other during auditions in Charlotte, NC, which was coincidentallycaptured by TMZ's cameras.
Rappers Young Jeezy and Rick Ross, who both own homes in Atlanta, got into a shoving match backstage at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards, according to sources who witnessed the wild encounter.
Witnesses say the BET staff didn't clear the hallway fast enough after Ross got off the stage, which resulted in a bottleneck of Jeezy's people and Ross's entourage near both men's dressing rooms backstage.
The hallway was already crowded with male and female groupies when both entourages converged in the hallway and words were exchanged between Jeezy and Ross.
According to a credible source, Tameka Foster Raymond was paid $25,000 to speak exclusively with Entertainment Tonight. Foster's exclusive interview with ET! airs tonight (Tuesday).
Foster, 42, recently lost her Motion for a new trial after losing primary custody of her 2 sons, ages 4 and 3, to her ex-husband Usher Raymond, 33.
During the interview with Entertainment Tonight host Nancy O'Dell, Foster seemed to forgive one of Usher's bridesmaids for sleeping with him after Foster and Usher tied the knot in 2009.
"This is someone who was there when my children were born she took me to the hospital when I was in labor with one of [my children] but I hate to say but I somewhat empathize with her because I feel that she was vulnerable and she fell into somewhat of a trap," Tameka told O'Dell.
"I think that she got very close to him as a result of being my friend and I feel as though he used it to his advantage. I think we all would admit that he's very charming," she went on.
But a source close to Foster's camp tells Sandrarose.com that Usher slept with Foster's close friend because he felt "emotionally deprived of affection" from the mother of 5. "She would withhold sex to [control him]," said the source. "Her a** is sneaky and he didn't trust her."
The confidential source continued: "[Usher's] mother gave him the the Private Investigator's report of Tameka's past criminal history that she forgot to tell him prior to their marriage.
"Who did she think she was to believe mama Patton would allow her to get her paws on his fortune when she worked for so many years to help him amass such," said the source, who added: "I admire [Jonetta Patton] for that."
It was just a matter of time before Paris Hilton did something stupid to turn the spotlight back onto her. Not that she hasn't been trying to get attention all along.
But nothing gets the attention of the press more than a pseudo-celebrity disparaging the gays.
Paris Hilton is catching heat for comments she made about gay men during a recent cab ride. Paris, the spawn of the multi-millionaire hotel magnate, supposedly didn't know she was being recorded.
"Gay guys are the horniest people in the world, the Hilton heiress can be heard saying. "They're disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS."
The comments were made during a Sept. 7 cab ride in NYC, TMZ reports. Hilton's team claims the cab driver secretly recorded the audio while Paris was having a conversation with a gay friend who was also in the cab.
Of course she was joking, but the media is running with it because celebrity news has been slow lately.
