Well, that certainly is a coincidence. Monday, Scoop! told you about reports that the Kardashian sisters, with the help of “momager” Kris Jenner, were leveraging their love lives for press — and cash.
A source told the New York Post that Kris is “negotiating a magazine deal for Khloe’s wedding, around $250,000, another deal for Kourtney’s baby, and there will probably be yet another deal when Kim eventually gets back together with [ex-beau] Reggie [Bush].”
Now comes word that — what do you know? — Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush are indeed back together.
Following her sister Khloe’s Sunday wedding to L.A. Laker Lamar Odom, the bootylicious socialite hopped a plane to see her former boyfriend, reports E!
“The wedding made her miss him, so she flew to see him,” a source confided.
Another sign they’re serious about getting back together: Though the New Orleans Saints player obviously had other plans on Sunday, his mother was at Khloe’s wedding.
Wonder if Kim and Reggie’s nuptials are next? We’re guessing that Kris is already working the phones, shopping exclusive photo rights.
When brand-new “Saturday Night Live” cast member Jenny Slate accidentally blurted out the F-word on her very first appearance, many viewers wondered if it would be her last. The comedian was playing a tough biker babe in a sketch full of “freakin’” and “frickin’” outbursts when she let the less-family-friendly equivalent fly.
Although the slip hit the airwaves after midnight, meaning it probably won’t prompt FCC fines, “it was a very big deal that the F-word hit the air,” a source informed the New York Daily News. Execs reportedly held a meeting after the broadcast. And the funnywoman was a no-show to the show’s after-party.
But the network says Jenny’s job is safe. “No truth to firing conjecture,” an NBC rep insisted. “She will not be fired.”
Considering Jenny’s F-bomb was the only thing about the “SNL” premiere people are talking about, they really should keep her on. She’s provided the best boost to the show’s dying buzz since Sarah Palin.
Pamela Anderson says reports that she’s drowning in debt are greatly exaggerated. The former “Baywatch” babe was alleged to be living in a one-bedroom trailer with her sons after being unable to pay for renovations on her home, and to owe a massive chunk of cash to the IRS as well. But Pam says it ain’t so.
“These reports are crazy and I cannot believe this has become a media issue,” the blond bombshell says in a statement. “I am actually touched at how much concern has been expressed for me over this. It is true that I am in a dispute with some of the contractors working on my home. This is because after paying millions of dollars to build the house I continue to get bills from the contractors. My lawyers are reviewing the work done to see if the bills are fair. If they are, they’ll be paid. If they aren’t, they won’t be.”
She adds, “On a separate issue, mistakes may have been made in calculating taxes owed and we are now in the process of ensuring that any taxes owed are paid. Unfortunately there are tax liens. However, I’m financially secure and I want to thank everyone who expressed concern for me based on these rumors.”
So if you were thinking about inviting Pam to crash on your couch, you can just forget it.
