Upon discovering that Kim Kardashian’s 72 day marriage to Kris Humphries was ending, our first concern was the incredible fortune they amassed during their brief union . There’s the $17.9 million they raked in for their televised, fairy tale extravaganza, the $2.5 million People allegedly shilled out for exclusive photo rights, and, of course, their Gearys Beverly Hills registry, which included a $7,850 vase and a $730 ice bucket, to name a few of the ridiculous items. We don’t know the exact dollar amount they made off with … but it was a lot. (And apparently Kim has sold her divorce story to People for an as yet undisclosed sum!) After the jump, our suggestions for what the couple should do with their spoils. We’re sure their lawyers will disagree. Keep reading »
Twelve previously unheard Amy Winehouse songs will be released on December 5 in an album where a portion of the proceeds will go to a charity set up in the singer’s memory. Amy recorded the 12 songs, which have been tweaked by her longtime collaborators (including Mark Ronson), at various points during her career. The songs will include favorites she performed in concert, like “Valerie” and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”; “Body & Soul,” which she recorded with Tony Bennett before her death; and a brand new song called “Between The Cheats.” Amy’s dad Mitch Winehouse called the album “incredibly beautiful” and a “fitting tribute.” Aww, now my eyes are watering.

Celeb Jihad is the website that cried wolf when it comes to leaked celebrity nudie pics. The latest “private pic” on their site is that of a topless Taylor Swift laying on a bed in nothing but her undies.The singer vehemently denies that the photo is hers. The face looks like Taylor, but um, Celeb Jihad, do you think we’re stupid? We know what you’re up to. It’s called Photoshopping. The site is notorious for leaking fake nude pics of other starlets like Scarlett Johansson. Their worst work is a totally tasteless photo of Emma Watson spreading her legs (extreeeeemely NSFW, folks). We’re not really feeling their credibility anymore, if you know what we mean. We humbly request that they stop now and we’re sure the celebs whom they’ve violated would concur. If they don’t take don’t take down Taylor’s pics, her lawyers will make them. They’ve already sent a cease and desist letter for their “false pornographic images” and are prepared to sue for trademark infringement. [Huffington Post]
UPDATE: Ryan Seacrest, who is a producer on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” (conveeeeeeniently), confirms that Kim is filing for divorce and will be giving him a statement shortly.
In a move that should come as a surprise to no one, Kim Kardashian is allegedly filing for divorce from her husband Kris Humphries — after only 72 days of marriage. Kim and Kris, whose alliterative names should have surely kept them together, seem to have lost their burgeoning passion and were spotted fighting over the weekend. Kim has already allegedly hired a new PR person to handle the flak.
So, what could have torn these two lovebirds apart? Was it the height difference? Or was it the rumor that Kris wasn’t actually Kim’s first choice to play her husband/love interest/mancessory on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”? It’s a sad day when a loveless $10 million wedding can’t even keep a faux couple together. [TMZ]
While I did a slideshow of celeb Halloween costume earlier this morning, Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison (dressed up as Courtney Stodden) clearly deserve their own post. This can’t be unseen, I’m sad to report. [Celebitchy]
