The World hasn’t Ended…they’re still Together

Khloe Kardashian has taken to her personal blog to prove to the world that she is not single, but she is still totally together with her athletic boyfriend, Rashad MCCants…in fact she is with him as I write this…

“So I just wanted to set the record straight and let everyone know that Rashad and I are still VERY much together. In fact, I’m with him in Minnesota as we speak. If you have any questions about all of this, please leave them in comments, and I will try my best to answer as many as I can! xoxo”

What the heck do we need to ask you Khloe. Ms. Kardashian is a pure example of a young woman who will go to any lengths to keep her 15 minutes of fame. Why don’t we all scramble up personal questions about her relationship to keep her busy.

Justin Bobby and The Hills…No More?!

Audrina & Justin Bobby

Wannabe actress but full blown reality star, Audrina Patridge, spoke to Us Weekly to let us know that she is no longer dating that sexy stud Justin Bobby, and there may be no more episodes of The Hills…thank god! She went on to say, “I keep reading on blogs that I’m cheating on Justin, and we’re not even together anymore! The last time I saw him was at The Hills finale in New York in December.”

I guess that means Justin Bobby is up for grabs…I’ll take him! Audrina went on to speak out the possibility of a 5th season of that god awful show The Hills, “At this point, we’ve all matured so much, and everyone kind of wants to break off and do their own thing.”

It seems to me that they’ve already broken off. I haven’t seen any photo ops of Lauren with Audrina, trying to make it seem like they’re still the best of friends. Hopefully, the dissappearance of The Hills, will make them slowly dissappear.

Why….?? Jenna Jameson Please Stop

Why must Jenna Jameson continue to get plastic surgery while she’s pregnant. For the love of Buddha, PLEASE STOP!! I’m sure it’s not good for the baby; neither is letting Heidi Montag touch your stomach. The two collagen lovers were spotted together at the Affliction party. I think I can say those babies have been officially tainted. Did you also notice that Heidi isn’t wearing that whack “wedding ring” either…hmm.

Madonna and Ritchie Settle for $92 Million

Madonna and Guy Ritchie have made an agreement in respect to the dollar amount paid to Ritchie, and, it is a whopper! Madonna’s rep Liz Rosenberg is saying between $76 million and $92 million will be deposited into the account of Mr. Ritchie. CA-CHING! Oh and Ritchie also gets to keep the English country estate ($30mil). The couple’s total worth is way over $500 Million, however, Madonna apparently (and not surprisingly) accounts for most of it.

Arrangement for 8-year-old son, Rocco, and 3-year-old son David, adopted from Malawi are still to be finalized.

Rihanna’s Sexy Trapezey Act Not Flying in Malaysia

A serious news source; FOX News, has reported that a “Pan-Malaysian Islamic party (PAS) claims Rihanna’s performance, planned for Kuala Lumpur on February 13, would be an insult to Asian values.

The Malaysian government has strict rules when it comes to female performers, and artists are required to cover up from their shoulders to their knees. This would be a problem for Rihanna because she is known for skimpy outfits like belly-baring corsets and knee-high boots. The PAS organization, which has launched protests against the U.S. over its support of Israel in the ongoing struggle in the Middle East, has also warned that ticket buyers are contributing to the United States’ economy.”

These guys are T.O.’ed!

“PAS youth wing leader Kamaruzaman Mohamad tells Malaysian newspaper the Star, “Whether Rihanna realizes it or not, we know that the taxes she has paid also contributed to the war in Gaza.”

Mohamad claims the event would be “akin to insulting Eastern culture, belittling local artistes, internationally causing losses to the country’s economy and supporting Israel’s war policy, which is supported by America.””
So, does Rihanna know about this? Do her peeps know!!!???

“Pineapple Concerts, the promoters behind the show, maintained Rihanna’s management is “aware of the country’s regulations and the difficulties of doing a show.””

Will the show still go on?

Maybe not, because “Islamic leaders in Malaysia are pressing ahead with calls to ban Rihanna from performing in the country just weeks after she promised to tone down her forthcoming live concert.”

Do you think Rihanna should go and perform anyway? Would you? Do you think it’s dangerous?

Well, Gwen Stefani took the risk and performed in Malaysia. According to FOX News, Gwen “lashed out at the government by claiming she made “a major sacrifice” when she gave in to the dress rules for her show in the country last year.”
