Not for one minute do I believe that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are really dating. But the rumor does make for interesting blog fodder.
According to TMZ, Kim and Kanye were seen leaving a movie theater together in NYC yesterday. I guess that amounts to a romance in the celebrity world. But in the real world, their "date" is a mere publicity stunt contrived by two narcissists to grab headlines.
Coincidentally, their "date" occurred on the same day (at the very hour) that Kanye dropped a new, disjointed, uptempo tune called "Theraflu" -- in which he proclaims his "love" for the self-obsessed reality star.
And I’ll admit I fell in love with Kim
’Round the same time she fell in love with him.
Well that’s cool, baby girl, do your thing,
Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.

It is difficult for a narcissist with her own media empire to admit failure. But Oprah Winfrey, 58, did just that on Monday when she told Katie Couric that she made a mistake launching her OWN Network.
Oprah, who ended her syndicated television show's successful run at 25 years because a dying boy told her to, is struggling to accept defeat when she's spent the last 25 years winning.
Therapists often advise their stressed out patients to communicate with their younger selves in order to comfort and nurture them. Embracing your inner child is a method that some therapists teach to their patients who are on the verge of nervous breakdowns because of their intense feelings of inadequacy.
So Oprah wrote a letter to herself back when she was the youngest and first black female television reporter at Nashville's WLAC-TV.
"Dear beautiful, brown-skinned girl," she begins in her letter which is published in this month's issue of O magazine.

NFL troublemaker Brandon Marshall is in hot water again, this time for punching a woman in the face outside a New York nightclub. According to Fox Sports, Marshall was at Marquee in Chelsea early Sunday when he got into an argument with a group of friends celebrating a birthday. Marshall reportedly punched the birthday girl, Christin Myles, 24, in the face after, his lawyer claims, a bottle was thrown at his wife.
Myles suffered a black eye. She later filed a police report naming Marshall as the perpetrator. But Marshall's lawyer said the fight did not involve Marshall or his friends.
“While attempting to leave to avoid the melee [Marshall’s wife] was struck in the face by a thrown bottle. She suffered serious injury,” Harvey Steinberg said in a statement.
“While attempting to leave and take his wife to the hospital, the mayhem continued outside. Mr. Marshall is hoping to assist authorities in regards to this matter," said Steinberg.
Marshall's lawyer never denied that Marshall took a swing at Myles.
A few days after the fight, the Miami Dolphins unloaded Marshall in a trade to the Chicago Bears. The Bears front office claims not to know about the fight or the fact that Marshall is a loose cannon, who goes around punching women.

Remember a while back when I promised to publish the La La Diaries and dish all of LaLa's dirt? Well, word filtered back to my ears that LaLa was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. So I held off on publishes the diaries because I have a heart and I'm nice.
Well, it turns out that part of LaLa's therapy was to face her husband Carmelo Anthony's infidelities head on rather than continue to deny them, which was causing her a lot of stress.
So in the upcoming season of LaLa's 'Full Court Life,' you will see her doing just that. In one episode, LaLa will finally break down and admit that she knows her husband has been cheating on her. But don't say I told you because that's not public knowledge yet.
In the ongoing full-court promotion to boost interest in her show, LaLa covers the April 2012 issue of Latina magazine. Inside, she discusses her internal struggles and coming to terms with 'Melo's cheating ways (she's a work in progress).
LATINA: On how she and Carmelo have lasted 8 years
LALA: “It’s been 15 days since I’ve seen my husband. That’s a long time for us to go without seeing each other. But I went on this whirlwind of launching the makeup line and my husband’s a basketball player. It’s not like he can say, ‘Hey, I’m not playing in the game today, I’m going to meet up with my wife somewhere.’ We’ve been together for eight years and I think we’ve lasted this long because we give each other space. But there’s also that time where it can be too much space.”

What does a narcissist do when she wants her narcissistic supply 24/7, but she can't find a man who's willing to get her pregnant? Answer: she adopts a baby.
According to OK! magazine's cover story, on newsstands Thursday, Kim Kardashian, 31, has begun the process of adopting a baby as a single mother.
"Kim has always been very maternal," an insider says. "Of the three sisters, she's the one who's been saying that she's ready for kids the longest."
"It's all top secret, but the adoption is already underway," a source explains. "Kim is ready. She's made inquiries and gotten information. Now she just has to decide where she wants the baby to come from."
If Kim is successful, and the adoption goes through, it will be another Hollywood baby whose sole purpose in life is to bring attention to it's mother -- Kim Kardashian, who isn't capable of loving anyone but herself. How sad.
Feeling the pressure of a tough reelection campaign, President Barack Obama got gully with Fox News' White House correspondent Ed Henry during a press conference today.
According to the Huffington Post, Obama was asked a question about high gas prices, which some have warned will increase if a war with Iran breaks out.
"Your critics will say on Capitol Hill that you want gas prices to go higher, because you have said before that will wean the American people off fossil fuels onto renewable fuels. How do you respond to that?" said Henry.
Referring to himself in the third person (as most narcissists do), President Obama said, “Ed, just from a political perspective, do you think the President of the United States, going into reelection, wants gas prices to go up even higher?"
Turning to the rest of the media, the president asked, "Is there anybody here who thinks that makes a lot of sense?”
Watch the clip after the break.

The Internet is buzzing about Kim Kardashian's generous $200,000 "donation" to charity, which is supposedly double the value of the wedding gifts she received.
But anyone who runs a business knows that charitable donations can be deducted from your income tax. So she really didn't lose a penny.
Kardashian's soon-to-be ex-husband, NBA star Kris Humphries, says Kim's charitable donation is not good enough. He thinks she should give the gifts back too. Humphries was duped by Kim into marrying her for a made-for-TV wedding. The marriage ended 72 days later -- after the taping of her reality show wrapped.

Ever since Rihanna and her abusive ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, got back together, Rihanna has been throwing subliminal shots at his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, on her Twitter page.
But Karrueche struck back with a diss of her own. When Brown tweeted a photo of himself cooking a meal for Karrueche in February, Karrueche tweeted a pic of the food that Brown prepared for her. The caption read "Yup... Get mad!"
In retaliation, Rihanna tweeted the above picture of a package of rice cakes wearing sunglasses and hoop earrings. The caption below the pic read: "Ima make u my bitch."
Rihanna's Twitter followers made the obvious connection to Brown's girlfriend.
But if you think Brown is going to defend his main chick (Karrueche), or even try to make the peace between his two women -- think again.
The lyrics to Rihanna's "Birthday Cake Remix" -- which Brown hopped on and co-signed -- contain a reference to "rice cakes," which is considered an insult to the Vietnamese. Karrueche is an aspiring model who is part Vietnamese.
So did Rihanna really take it there? Is she being disrespectful and racist because she can't get her way with Chris? Or is Rihanna just being Rihanna?
Over the weekend, reality TV star Kim Kardashian wore very unflattering leggings that revealed the depths of her insecurities. Wearing a denim vest, black leggings and a pink Chanel clutch, Kardashian smiled and posed for pictures with fans outside a sports store in Calabasas on Friday.
Like other women who suffer from body image disturbance, Kim doesn't see how unnatural her butt looks sitting on the back of her thighs like a loaded diaper. She has repeatedly denied getting butt shots or using other butt enhancements to boost her self-confidence.

Rap producer Kanye West has conquered the world of music, but he's having a little trouble convincing the world's fashionistas to take him seriously as a designer.
Narcissists think very highly of themselves, but Kanye isn't your average, run-of-the-mill narcissist.
Just to prove he's the next Marc Jacobs, Kanye packed his things and moved to Europe -- and he plans to stay there until the other fashion designers stop laughing at him behind his back.
Last week, Kanye debuted his DW collection during Paris fashion week. His designs, inspired by his late mother Donda West, barely evoked mention by the fashion critics. But the media did buzz about the shoes his models were wearing.

NBA superstar Kobe Bryant fractured his nose and suffered a concussion during the 2012 All Star game. But the self-centered Lakers forward won't let a broken nose and a mild concussion prevent him from chasing the all-time NBA scoring record.
The injuries occurred during Sunday's All-Star game in Orlando, when Miami Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade attempted to stop Kobe from making a wide open slam dunk. Wade has since apologized to Kobe publicly and in private.
The league has strict policies on players who are diagnosed with concussions. The policy requires players with head injuries to sit out a number of games and the policy determines when players can return to the court. But we are talking about Kobe Bryant, who has records to break.
Bryant did not miss a game after suffering his injuries. He walked out on the court wearing his version of a Greek warrior mask in last night's game against the Timberwolves. The mask is to prevent further injuries to his face -- and to protect the league from liability -- while he
selfishly chases NBA records.

Director/playwright Tyler Perry's latest movie 'Good Deeds' soared to #2 behind 'Act of Valor' at the box office this weekend. 'Good Deeds' earned a respectable $15,583,924 on 2,132 screens, while 'Act of Valor' brought in $24,476,632 -- on ? more screens than 'Deeds' was shown on.
'Good Deeds' is about an anal-retentive, wealthy businessman, Wesley Deeds (Perry), trying to 'save' an exotic, LSLH cleaning woman (Thandie Newton) who works for his computer software firm.
Wesley Deeds is a hard-working, compassionate man who looks out for his narcissistic brother, Walter (Brian White), despite the fact that Walter sabotages his every move.
Deeds is so attentive to details that his daily routine can easily be predicted by his live-in fiancee, Natalie (Gabrielle Union).
Union turns in a wonderful performance as the understanding, submissive girlfriend who makes breakfast for her man every morning, while allowing him to go about his day without "checking in" with her (because she trusts him not to break from his routine). The warm, beautiful Natalie is every black man's dream.
What could be more perfect?

Rapper T.I. and his wife Tiny sit at courtside during the NBA All Star game in Orlando, FL on Sunday. The happy couple also took the kids to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando during their stay in Florida.
There is some talk (unconfirmed) that troubled singer Rihanna, 24, is being considered for Whitney Houston's role in 'Waiting To Exhale'. The truth is that Rihanna's career is over. Her former mentor Jay Z has severed all ties with her, and her record label has all but tossed her to the blog wolves as scrap meat. We doubt she's being considered to even play herself in a biopic on her own sad life.

I stopped watching the Academy Awards almost 30 years ago when I found out that the narcissistic pageantry was rigged and almost everyone knew who was going to win.
Deadline.com's writer Nikke Finke wrote: "The Oscars suck every year! And this year the Oscars are gonna suck worse than ever! Because we all know who’s going to win the marquee categories without a single envelope being ripped open."

First-time proud parents Beyonce and Jay-Z took their newborn daughter Blue Ivy Carter out on her first walk in the Big Apple today. Jay Z, right, and another man stood guard as Beyonce carried baby BIC out of a restaurant and into her custom van. Blue Ivy was tightly bound and nearly smothered in a dark blanket. In keeping with the blue theme of BIC's over-the-top birth, Beyonce wore blue outerwear over black leggings, a skull cap and black shades. The family was seen leaving Sant Ambroeus Restaurant in the West Village after having lunch.
