Everyone, indeed, wants to keep up with the Kardashians. Glu Mobile, the San Francisco-based developer of the popular “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood” mobile game, announced plans Tuesday to develop a game starring Kim Kardashian’s half sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

The game, which is set to launch this year for Apple and Android devices, will feature the likenesses, voices and creative influences of the 19- and 17-year-old “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” co-stars. The game’s objective has not been divulged.

The U.K.’s Daily Mail reports that Mrs. Kanye West’s app — in which she advises players on how to maneuver their way to A-list celebrity status — could add as much as $200 million to her coffers this year.

Bloggers had mixed reaction to the news. Comments ranged from, “For goodness sake! They have all this money to feed the world 10 times over but still want to make more? No wonder there’s an unequal distribution of wealth” to, “Why does everyone have to be so bitter? Don’t knock the game until you try it” to, “They are all born to be whhoooooores.”

Glu Mobile also is creating a Katy Perry product.


Speaking of cyberbullies, diehard University of Kentucky men’s basketball fan Ashley Judd is mad at them and doing something about it.

The actress, who accused Arkansas of playing dirty against Kentucky while she tweeted from the crowd at Sunday’s Southeastern Conference Tournament championship game, said she is pressing charges against trolls who responded with vulgar, explicit, violent tweets.

Telling MSNBC’s Thomas Robert and “Weekend Today’s” Craig Melvin that she had been called a whore and the C-word, Judd said, “The way things happen on social media is so abusive … everybody needs to take personal responsibility for what they write and not allow this misinterpretation and shaming culture on social media to persist.”


Richard Gere, slated to receive the Peter J. Owens Award for excellence in acting at the 58th San Francisco International Film Festival, will be honored at the Castro Theatre on April 26. … Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling and Jeremy Renner are among the actors interested in portraying iconic cool movie star Steve McQueen in an upcoming biopic, according to Graham Kaye, a producer on the film.


Singer Adam Levine of Maroon 5 is 36. … Actress Sutton Foster (“Bunheads”) is 40. … Rapper-actress Queen Latifah (“Last Holiday”) is 45. … Singer Irene Cara is 56. … Actor Brad Dourif (“Lord of the Rings”) is 65. … Composer John Kander is 88. — Staff, wire report
