After just 72 days of marriage, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have split. Kardashian family friend and radio host Ryan Seacrest confirmed the news Monday morning.
“Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her,” he Tweeted.
Kardashian is said to have hired high profile divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, who has represented numerous stars including Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears and Maria Shriver. TMZ reports she will cite “irreconcilable differences” and list the date of separation as October 31, 2011.
Neither Kardashian nor Humphries has commented. The couple wed on August 20 after just 9 months of dating. Their extravagant wedding was taped for a two-part E! special titled Kim’s Fairytale Wedding.
The pop star says she tried to help her unfortunate elder brother before he became homeless by checking him into a clinic in Texas.
The singer’s brother Anthony Ciccone hit headlines this month when it was revealed he has been living on the streets of Traverse City, Michigan since losing his job at the family’s vineyard.
Ciccone told reporters his “family turned their back on me”, but insisted he didn’t want help because of his showbusiness connections.
In a new interview with Britain’s Daily Mail, it is revealed Madonna tried to help her brother six years ago by paying for him to undergo a two-month stay in a rehab clinic in Texas to battle his drinking problem, but the treatment didn’t work.
Ciccone is adamant he didn’t need rehab and is convinced his family should have done more to help him.
He tells the publication, “I’m a zero in their eyes; a non-person, an embarrassment. If I froze to death, my family probably wouldn’t know or care about it for six months…. My family seem to think rehab is some kind of magic panacea for life’s ills…”
However, Ciccone, 55, insists he doesn’t resent his famous sister’s success, but he does wish she would get in touch.
He adds, “I’m proud of my sister – but it’s been a burden, because I can’t be me; I have to be related to a celebrity. People have their ideas and expectations. My sister’s a multi-millionaire – but she earned it, I have to give her credit for that. But you’d think there’d be some more family loyalty, and that’s not the case… Just to communicate would be nice… There isn’t much else that exists outside of what she’s doing.”
It looks like Charlie Sheen will be back on TV next summer! FX has confirmed they picked up 10 episodes of his new sitcom Anger Management. If the show is a hit, the network will commit to 90 more episodes.
“We think that Bruce Helford, Joe Roth and Charlie Sheen have come up with a wonderful, hilarious vehicle for Charlie’s acting talents — and a character we are very much looking forward to seeing him play. ‘Two and a Half Men’ has been an outstanding component of FX’s schedule for the past 14 months, and we have every confidence that Anger Management will soon be as well,” said FX President and General Manager John Landgraf.
Anger Management is loosely based on the 2003 film of the same name. Sheen will play “a mild-mannered, non-confrontational man ordered to attend group anger management sessions led by a therapist who could probably use some anger management himself,” according to Lionsgate.
Sheen, 46, was fired from the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men in March following weeks of bizarre behavior and a public feud with show creator Chuck Lorre. His character, Charlie Harper, was killed off and replaced by internet billionaire Walden Schmidt, played by Ashton Kutcher.
It’s official Beavis and Butthead are back! They returned to MTV this week (Oct 27) after a 13 year absence. The animated series Beavis and Butthead proved to be a huge success as 3.3 million people tuned in for the revival of the animated series.
According to Zaptoit, the series performed well with males, who comprised over two-thirds of the audience. The episode saw the duo tackle pop culture references such as Jersey Shore and The Bachelor. However reviews for the episode were mixed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, one critic praised, “it turns out that their brand of blunt but unexpectedly wise snark translates just as well to trashy reality shows as it did to trashy hair metal videos back in the day”, whilst another stated, “by the old measurements, the premiere episode is tepid and distant.” Many fans were more optimistic. Alan Moyer, talking on twitter said, ‘Beavis and Butthead haven’t lost a step’ whilst Stephen Hopkins declared, ‘I think Beavis and Butthead actually got funnier than it was before’. However it wasn’t enough to please everyone: ‘I hate that Beavis and Butthead is back on TV’tweeted another.
The comedy, initially launched in 1993 but ended in November 1997. The teenagers still now appear as the same age, having failed to grow or mature in the past decade. Mtv President Can Toffler previously told Rolling Stone magazine, “They’re the same boneheads sitting on the same couch, commenting on things through a really simple prism”.
Matt Damon may look like a bad guy with the prison jumpsuit and fake neck tattoos while on set in Vancouver filming Elysium. But don’t be fooled.
This week, Matt Damon and Water.org, the charity he co-founded, are launching a water bottle campaign to help some of the 884 million people who lack access to clean, safe water.
“I think what resonates with me most is when you see people living without clean water and they’re forced to scavenge for water and basically use up all of their time just doing that,” Damon said. “You realize that they’re in such a crippling cycle of poverty; it’s just a death spin that they can’t possibly get out of.”
With the purchase of each limited-edition CamelBak Groove reusable water bottle, $10 will go directly to Water.org.
The bottles are available at water.org/gift,
