Kris Humphries and New Jersey Nets staying together

Kris Humphries has been invited back for another year with the New Jersey Nets
Kris Humphries has no problem with staying power in one of his relationships — that with his NBA team, the New Jersey Nets.

Now that the labor lockout has been resolved, the basketball team has asked Humphries back for another year.

Terms of the deal say Kris will once again sport his jersey to the tune of $8 million, according to Yahoo Sports, and should be with the team for Wednesday's exhibition game against the New York Knicks. Kim Kardashian's husband of 72 days passed his team physical on Tuesday.

The report notes that Humphries had the year of his career in 2010, becoming "one of the best per-minute rebounders in the league." Skills that will, uh, serve him well in personal matters

Kardashian Christmas card: Kim is alone, Rob stands tall [Poll]

Kardashian Christmas card 2011

The Kardashian Christmas card is out and in it, well, Kim Kardashian stands alone. So does Rob Kardashian, of course, but with his confident new "Dancing With the Stars" posture, that's nothing but a good thing.

The Kardashian/Jenner family Christmas card for 2011, released Monday, was shot once again by Nick Saglimbeni and, like so many other holiday greetings -- say, "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked" -- also comes in a 3D version.

"There's nothing I love more than getting everyone together for the Christmas card shoot!" Kourtney Kardashian wrote on her blog. "I love everyone's matching bow ties!"

The cast of characters includes, from left, Rob Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom, Kim Kardashian, and wee little Mason Disick with his parents, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick.

One fun year-over-year note: Check out Rob's demeanor in last year's card, where he's hiding himself in the middle of his larger-than-life family, and compare that to the shot above. What a difference a No. 2 finish in "Dancing With the Stars" makes, indeed. Rob also recently posted a picture of their Christmas tree, "before presents."

Meanwhile, back to Kim, boldly standing alone in the wake of her short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries.

"Maybe our mistakes r what make our fate,wout them what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course we wouldn't b who we are," Kim said on Twitter, shortly after announcing the arrival of the card. We wonder, was she referring to her pending divorce, or to the Kris-and-Kim Christmas card photos that wound up in the photographer's trash bin?

Either way, the Kardashian card might not exactly scream "Jingle Bells," but that's hardly what we expect from the reality-TV clan this time of year.

Check out last year's Christmas card and then let us know below, is the 2011 Kardashian Christmas card a step up from last year, or something else entirely?

Celebrity breakups of 2011: How many can you name?

Arnold and Maria, Kat and Jesse, Kris and Kim, Demi and Ashton

Lots of celebrity couples broke up in 2011 ... how many can you remember? We shouldn't kick up our heels at evidence that the famous and well-funded are as human and fallible as ordinary folk. But it's pretty hard not to.

"Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world."

Yes, Ashton, yes it is.

PHOTO GALLERY: Celebrity breakups of 2011

Kutcher -- who allegedly spent his and Demi's sixth anniversary fooling around with a San Diego party receptionist -- was among those thinking deep, end-of-relationship thoughts as 2011 drew toward a close. 

ScarJo had a tough 2011 on the personal front.  She had a tough 2010 too, splitting up with Ryan "Sexiest Man Alive" Reynolds. She followed that this year with a split from Sean "I'm 24 Years Older Than You" Penn. Topping it all off, photos of her bare backside and upper body, hacked from her phone, were trotted out all over the Internet. Those pictures weren't for 24 Years Older Than You, by the way; they were for then-husband Sexiest Man Alive.

Meanwhile, Kat Von D, whose upper body has been seen bare without the hassle of hacking, found herself planning a summer wedding, then later counting the number of alleged hook-ups by fiance Jesse James while they were together.

"Today I encountered the 19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year ..." the tattoo artist wrote in mid-November on Facebook.

Which is worse: someone cheating on you behind your back, or someone who doesn't back your behind? Kris Humphries allegedly said Kim Kardashian had a fat behind.

And you know where that couple landed -- the same place as all the other couples in our gallery: Splitsville.

Kris Humphries: Annul it, void it, just make it all go away

Kris Humphries wants an annulment

Kris Humphries is having a legal field day this week, parrying soon-to-be-ex-wife Kim Kardashian's divorce petition with a request for legal separation and an annulment instead -- and as of Friday he reportedly wants their prenup disappeared as well.

Humphries asked for an annulment of the marriage in a response filed Thursday in L.A. Superior Court. Kardashian filed for divorce on Oct. 31 after 72 days of wedded bliss or something. TMZ said Friday that the pro basketball player wants the annulment for religious reasons.

The annulment is being sought on the grounds of fraud, according to court documents. That sounds pretty nasty, but it's also a box that can be checked if it can't be alleged that one or the other party involved was already married, was too young to get married or was physically incapable of getting married at the time of, you know, getting married.

Of course, there are also the boxes alleging that someone wasn't of sound mind at the time of the wedding, or that someone was forced to say "I do." But there we are again, getting back into nasty territory. Plus the last two don't count if the parties lived together freely after getting hitched -- and of course, Kris and Kim's cohabitation was captured on camera for the sake of reality TV.

Oops.

Humphries wants the prenup voided not because of any his-and-hers property issues but rather, according to Radar Online, to nix what a source calls an "extensive" confidentiality clause.

"Kris wants to be able to talk about the situation without being sued," said a Radar source supposedly close to the situation. Apparently, the thinking is that if the marriage were annulled, it would be as if it never existed, so a prenup would become moot. Well, never existed except for the two-part TV special.

Kim, meanwhile, doesn't appear too worried about a judge buying that the marriage was contrived for the cameras. She's reportedly told friends that as a "marketing genius" along with mom Kris Jenner, there's no way she'd set herself up for the Kardashian brand bashing that has resulted from filing for divorce.

Also, the couple still have not yet determined an important element of their split: Who gets Bruce Willis? Oh wait -- that's a different divorce.

Barbara Walters' most fascinating people: a peek at the list [Poll]

Barbara-walters1

This post has been updated, as indicated below.

Barbara Walters has released the almost-complete list of people that will be included in the 2011 edition of her annual special, "Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011."

Warning to Daniel Craig: The Kardashians are on the list.

The most fascinating person of 2011 won't be revealed until the special airs Dec. 14 on ABC, but the rest of the participants are an eclectic group: In addition to Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian -- and don't forget mom, Kris Jenner -- there's the "Modern Family" duo of Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet, plus Simon Cowell, New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter, Donald Trump, pop star Katy Perry and Pippa Middleton.

Who's missing from the list? And tell us in comments: Who do you think will be the crowned 2011's most fascinating person?

[For the record, 2:41 p.m. Nov. 30: The headline on this post originally said "9 of 10 revealed." It has been changed.]

Daniel Craig is a fan of privacy, but Kardashians, not so much

Daniel Craig says the Kardashians are "idiots"

Daniel Craig has revealed he's not a big Kardashian fan.

The man who is James Bond and stars in David Fincher's upcoming "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" told British GQ that it's very important to keep your private life private. (Craig and Rachel Weisz had a secret wedding in New York in June.)

"I think there's a lot to be said for keeping your own counsel," he told the mag. "You can't buy your privacy back. 'Ooh, I want to be alone... We've been in your living room. We were at your birth. You filmed it for us and showed us the placenta, and now you want some privacy?"

Craig's saltier language below has been edited out for sensitive readers, because he didn't stop there.

"It is a career; I'm not being cynical. And why wouldn't you? Look at the Kardashians, they're worth millions. Millions! I don't think they were that badly off to begin with, but now look at them. You see that and you think, 'What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a ... idiot on television and then you'll pay me millions?'"

Once again, Craig's saltier language has been edited out. Trust us, he's not a Kardashian fan.

So Kourtney Kardashian, who just announced she's pregnant with baby No. 2, can probably stop holding her breath for a shower gift from Craig.

Justin Bieber tops Kim Kardashian as most-searched person of 2011

Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian

Justin Bieber has overtaken Kim Kardashian as the most-searched person in 2011, according to the search engine Bing.

Looks like Kim just can't get a break.

Kardashian was the queen of search last year, but the combination of Bieber's My World 2.0 Tour, hit concert movie "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never," "Saturday Night Live" hosting job, Christmas album,  romance with Selena Gomez and the little matter of the now-pulled paternity suit over Mariah Yeater's baby were enough to push him to the top spot.

Meanwhile, Kardashian launched a new reality show, "Kourtney and Kim Take New York," got married and got divorced. It was quite a lot, but not enough to stop Bieber fever.

Several notable names dropped out of the top 10 this year, including Sandra Bullock and Jesse James. But President Obama may have fallen the furthest. In 2010, was the No. 5 most-searched person. In 2011, he was No. 49.

Two people who got huge boosts in 2011 were Gomez, who went from No. 50 to No. 11 (thanks, no doubt, to all the Bieber-smooching) and Jennifer Lopez, who wasn't in the top 50 last year and is now fifth.

Although Amy Winehouse's death was the fifth most searched-for news story for the whole year,  Winehouse herself did not make the top 10 most searched-for people.

Women did very well in 2011, however. Although Bieber was the No. 1 person and musician, the rest of the top 10 in both categories were women. Additionally, Chelsea Handler beat out Conan, Dave and Jay to be the most searched-for late night talk show host. And all of the top 10 reality stars were women.

Strangely, the most searched-for movie was not the final "Harry Potter" or "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1," but Tom Cruise's "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol." The dominance of the fourth movie in the "Mission: Impossible" franchise makes one wonder if Bing is the preferred search engine of either the Church of Scientology, or animation fans (it's directed by animator Brad Bird).

Kim Kardashian's Thanksgiving mission to help those in need

KimStory
Kim Kardashian left her trouble with Kris Humphries at home when she stepped out for a good cause  Wednesday. The reality star took time out of her busy schedule to give back to the community by serving food at the Los Angeles Mission Thanksgiving Dinner.

And she wasn’t the only star spreading good cheer; Jennifer Love Hewitt, Zoe Saldana and Kirk Douglas also helped out at the annual event.

Volunteering around the holidays is nothing new to Kim. She told Showbiz 411, “My parents used to take us here when we were little and different places across L.A. to give back, so I’m kind of following the tradition.”

So what does Thanksgiving really mean to Kim during this difficult time?

"I think the holidays are just about winding down and spending time with your family," she explained to People magazine. "That's what it's going to be about this year for me."

After serving gravy over mashed potatoes, Kim was off to prep for her own Thanksgiving dinner with family.

"We're each cooking a dish, bringing it over and just hanging out," she said to the mag. "I'm going to make the sweet potato soufflé," she shares. "It's really good!"

Kim Kardashian made a big fat Christmas card mistake?

Kim Kardashian

Finally, the Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries divorce has come dangerously close to affecting the rest of us. Word is there was a problem with a Kardashian Christmas card.

Before panicking, know this: The official Kardashian kristmas kard photo shoot went down Monday, according to a tweet from Kim, so the future of Hollywood's holiday cheer appears to be intact.

"Shooting our family Christmas card today," she wrote. "u guys will love our theme this year. Hanging w the fam is the best! Then off 2 see Rob dance!"

(Rob Kardashian, of course, kicked some serious freestyle booty while shaking his own notable booty Monday on the first part of the "Dancing With the Stars" finals. He took home a perfect score of 30 for his second dance, with sisters Kim and Khloe there in the audience, along with Kris and Bruce Jenner, and is up for the Mirror Ball Trophy tonight on ABC.)

But back to the important stuff -- the Kim-and-Kris card that didn't see the light of day. 

After a Christmas-card picture of the newlyweds was taken in August on the staircase at the Montecito spread where they were married, before they scooted for their honeymoon, Kim reportedly asked a stationery company for at least 10 versions to choose from, a source told Radar Online. She checked out said proofs in mid-September. And then filed for divorce on Halloween. In a perfect world, any money spent to that point would have actually caught on fire.

"She conveyed to the owners of the company that she was very pleased with the results," the source said. "Kim said she would get back to them with a final choice, but alas, she never did, for obvious reasons."

Another unnamed insider, by the way, would have you believe that Humphries was actually the bad guy responsible for the "obvious reasons": "He tried to control Kim by bringing her down," someone without a name told Us Weekly, describing hubby's hard-partying ways and alleging the 26-year-old had a mean streak. "He would say truly terrible things. One time, he said she had no talent and her fame wouldn't last."

And this one other time? Clutch those pearls quickly! He allegedly said she had a fat behind.

Nevertheless, it sounds as if we'll still have our annual fun checking out the full-family Kardashian Kard -- last year's theme probably wasn't supposed to be "The Addams Family," but that, fabulously, is sort of what happened.

Kris Humphries calls split 'difficult,' finds solace in watch gig

Kris Humphries

For Kris Humphries, the pain of life's difficulties is eased by good friends — friends like the watch company that's paying him to endorse their product.

The unusual crutch helping Humphries through his divorce from Kim Kardashian comes courtesy of Sector watches, which just unveiled the 26-year-old as its spokesman.

The NBA player, unemployed thanks to the league's lockout, fetched a reported $150,000 for the campaign. But, he said, he got so much more than a bank account boost.

"As you all know, this has been a difficult time in my life, and I'm so grateful [for] my friends at Sector for their unwavering support," he said Thursday at a New York press conference.

Funny — the Ministry's watch reminds us only of how young we aren't getting and certainly doesn't offer cash rewards or even wavering support. But we're not jealous.

Kim's got her army of sisters and Twitter fans and the odd acting gig to see her through. We're glad you found a port in a storm, Kris. And by that we mean not a wrist accessory, but your own divorce attorney.
