Khloe Kardashian, Lamar Odom deal with his-and-hers family drama on 'Khloe and Lamar' premiere

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom premiere their E! show 'Khloe and Lamar'

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's newlywed reality series, "Khloe and Lamar," is officially here.

Kardashian, known as the youngest Kardashian sister on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and "Kourtney and Khloe Take New York," and her Lakers forward hubby debuted their show Sunday on E! with the hope that it would attract more viewers bearing the Y-chromosome.

"This show is very different from 'Keeping Up' and the 'Take On' series because those shows are so female-driven," she told PopEater. "This show is very much male-driven. It's Lamar and my brother Rob who lives with us, it's very masculine in a lot of ways, there's a lot of NBA footage, locker room footage and also a lot of us. Lamar and I as newlyweds and learning about each other and experiencing a lot of firsts that happen on camera."

The couple, who recently launched a unisex fragrance called "Unbreakable," married in September 2009 after a whirlwind romance. Their inevitable E! show chronicles their newlywed life, brother Rob Kardashian moving in, friendship with pals Malika Haqq and Jamie Sangouthai and a bevy of baby-making problems.

The premiere episode highlighted Odom's daddy issues when his father, Joe Odom, surprised Kardashian at a book signing with her sister Kourtney Kardashian. Kourtney, who had been working on a campaign to get Lamar on the NBA All-Star team, grapples with how to get Joe back into her husband's life. Turns out the man is just trying to bum a few dollars off his wealthy son.

"My father is someone I'd do anything for," Lamar Odom said. "But he's someone I don't let get too close."

What'd you think of the premiere? Will you keep watching?

Kids' Choice Awards: Kardashian sisters insist they do actually keep some things private [Video]

With every new reality show that comes out featuring the Kardashian sisters -- of which, come Sunday, there will be four -- it seems there's almost nothing the family won't share. But at the Kids' Choice Awards, Kim Kardashian says there are some things she actually keeps to herself.

Photo-gallery-kca "There is a lot that you do want to keep private and so we don't film 24 hours a day or all year long," the 30-year-old said on the orange carpet at the Nickelodeon awards on Saturday, where she and sister Kourtney were presenters. "We obviously are comfortable sharing a lot, but you never really get used to a camera being there. People ask that. But not really."

Kourtney, meanwhile, was more forthcoming.

"Everyone on my crew has probably seen all my goods, and that's OK," the eldest of the Kardashian siblings said.

While "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" is currently on the air, sister Khloe's spin-off show with her husband, Lakers player Lamar Odom, is set to premiere next weekend. Being a part of so many reality shows can get confusing, admitted Kourtney.

"I've been filming on Khloe's show a little bit, but whenever we're filming, I'm like, 'Is this Khloe's show? Like, what show are we even filming for?' I don't know what's for what show."

Kourtney Kardashian -- with two Ks -- on 'One Life to Live'

Kourtney Kardashian flaunted her acting chops to daytime viewers Monday in a different grossly over-dramatized series: ABC's "One Life to Live."

The "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" star (a.k.a. the monotone dead-behind-the-eyes Kardashian) appeared on the daytime soap as ambulance-chasing lawyer Kassandra Kavanaugh -- "with two Ks" -- handcuffed to soap star David Fumero.

"Dancing With the Stars" contestant Wendy Williams anchored the news spot that introduced Kardashian's over-the-top plot. Watch the whole clip above.

Kardashian's struggle with learning how to act was documented in Sunday's episode of her reality series, which generally illuminates her tumultuous love life with boyfriend Scott Disick, her relationship with her sisters Khloe and Kim Kardashian, their business-savvy ventures and their less-than-business-savvy adventures.

The fashion-forward starlet and eldest Kardashian admitted that she was fulfilling a lifelong dream but didn't know how to act when she learned that the script contained more lines than she expected.

"I'm not going to be like Nicole Kidman," she told her friend Adrienne Bailon, the former Cheetah Girl and Rob Kardashian's ex-girlfriend, from whom she was seeking acting advice. "I'm not an actress."

A little reminiscent of Kim saying she wasn't Beyonce or Celine Dion when she decided to sing, no? 

Based on the clip above, which is more ridiculous: Kourtney acting as a lawyer or Kourtney acting? Take the poll and let us know in the comments.

Kim Kardashian's naked W photos -- a thin line between love and hate

Kim Kardashian likes her naked pictures for W Magazine It seems like Kim Kardashian has a love-hate relationship with her naked body -- she's now backpedaling on her initial reaction to her nude photos in W Magazine.

"This really pisses me off -- this is serious porn!" she had sobbed to sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian on a recent episode of E!'s "Kourtney and Kim Take New York."

The news came when she got an advance copy of her full-frontal on the mag's annual Art issue. She was furious that she was "more naked" in the W photos than she'd been in her Playboy shoot, showing more, well, let's just call it more anatomical detail.

"She promised me I would be covered with artwork on top of me," Kardashian said.

When the show was shot, the 30-year-old reality TV starlet said she would never do a nude shoot again, not even for Vogue. Hear that, Anna Wintour?

But now she's telling Us Magazine that she loves the photos and thinks they're "beautiful."

"W Magazine is iconic so I'm really happy that I did it and that those are the photos." 

What a difference a week makes!

"It's just that that's not what I thought they were going to be," she said. "Obviously, I'm comfortable posing nude -- I've done that before, and I did that then for the magazine. But that's probably not the direction I would've wanted to go if I thought that was going to be the case."

Kim Kardashian club fight: Drink in face, drama to spare [video]

Kim Kardashian Kim Kardashian is likely accustomed to getting a complimentary drink or two -- but certainly not in her face.

A well-documented club fight the reality star was embroiled in last October finally surfaced on the E! reality series "Kourtney & Kim Take New York," a spinoff of their popular "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."

In a clip from UsMagazine.com, Kim indulges a male fan with a quick photo opp, all smiles until the guy's loudmouth girlfriend starts trouble.

The wacky broad accuses Kim of getting too close to her man, even calling her a "whore." Sister Kourtney Kardashian's man, Scott Disick, comes to Kim's defense and winds up getting into a brawl with the fan -- but not before his lady friend has the chance to throw her drink on the fashionista.

Dramz! 

Check out the clip above and give us your thoughts in comments on Kim's scuffle and Scott's tumble.

'The Kardashians' deliver holiday wishes on 'SNL'

 

The Kardashian Christmas card seems to have inspired the "Saturday Night Live" gang this past weekend. 

Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian were spoofed with delicious precision, with a video message for happy holidays to everyone, or more specifically -- Merry Christmas to their friends, Happy Hanukkah to their agents and managers, and to their boyfriends, "Have a great Kwanzaa!" 

See shout-outs to a certain sex tape, Reggie Bush and much more in the clip above.

Oh yes, "SNL" also had Cookie Monster's hard-won appearance and "Miley Cyrus" addressing that bong incident -- but the Kardashians spoof may have lovingly trumped them both.

Kardashian Christmas card tradition continues in dramatic fashion

Kardashian Christmas Card The Kardashian Christmas card is out, and unlike your typical Hallmark special with a note enclosed detailing marriages, babies and surgeries of 2010, this one has drama -- not to mention Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian and mom Kris Jenner in glam gowns.

Did we mention lots of drama?

So much drama we're not sure it says "Christmas" as much as it says, "We're ready for New Year's Eve, even the little guy, and we have a better table than you do" -- but hey, spirit of the season and all.

There's even a noir version of photographer Nick Saglambeni's setup, from the behind-the-scenes shots.

"Hi dolls," Khloe Kardashian writes on her blog. "Christmas cards have always been a REALLY big deal in my family. For as long as I can remember, my mom has made it a point to go all out, whether it was a ninja turtles themed card, or bringing a Santa into the mix, each year she always managed to top the year before. I'd have to say though that our card this year might be my favorite. It turned out beautifully -- just SO glam! Plus, Mason is in it, which makes it even more special. Look at him standing there in his pinstripe suit, such a little gentleman!!! LOL. I love it!

How does your Christmas card effort measure up to the Kardashians'? Or, vice versa, does your tradition have an edge on on theirs?

Top-earning reality stars: Kardashians, the Situation are making millions

Kardashians-top-earning-reality Just in time for the Christmas crunch comes a perhaps-confounding list of top-earning reality stars for 2010.

For the small price of diminished privacy, these "real" personalities rake in a ton of dough. With their per-episode salaries, endorsement deals and nightclub and other promotional appearances, these folks are taking their boom mikes and camera crews directly to the bank.

Not surprisingly, Kim Kardashian and her colorful sisters top the list, compiled by the Daily Beast.

Kim herself nabs the No. 1 spot (another top ranking for her in 2010), with an estimated $6 million in income. Just don't expect that cash pile to pay off any self-named credit cards. The name you might not expect is that of the second-highest earner: Lauren Conrad.

Clocking in with $5 million in earnings this year, Conrad hasn't technically been a reality star since May 2009. However, the legacy she's carried — a successful franchise of novels and more successful clothing collections — earns her 2010 cash-cow status.

Fear not, Conrad will be back on MTV, though not for the lunches and love lives she touched on "The Hills." The new show will focus on her enterprise.

Reality-tv-salaries "The Real Housewives of New York" star Bethenny Frankel arrives at No. 3 with $4 million, with Conrad's "Hills" pal Audrina Patridge next at $3.5 million. Matching Patridge cent-for-cent, according to the report, is reality mom Kate Gosselin.

With a nod for the boys, at No. 6 we find Mike "the Situation" Sorrentino, earning $3 million for hawking products including his own fitness DVDs and a protein-infused vodka. Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian come in after the Sitch with $2.5 million each, rounded out by another "Jersey Shore" fist-pumper, Paul "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio, with $2 million for the year.

Former playmate Kendra Wilkinson claims the No. 10 position with $2 mill as well. What do you think of the highest-paid reality stars? Tell us in comments below.

So much for that Kardashian MasterCard -- sisters want out

Kim-kardashian-mastercard Kim Kardashian and her sisters Khloe and Kourtney no longer want their images associated with a prepaid debit MasterCard they launched less than three weeks ago, according to a letter sent Monday by the Kardashians' attorney Dennis A. Roach.

Why would the clan want to shed this deal faster than last season's bandage dress? In a Black Friday warning to parents, Connecticut Atty. Gen. Richard Blumenthal said, "I am deeply disturbed by this card's high fees combined with its appeal to financially unsophisticated young adults. In reality, no family can 'keep up with the Kardashians' using this card."

He said the family "is marketing a dangerous financial fantasy," citing onerous fees and penalties and stating that his office would be seeking more details from the bank that issues the card.

"The card is filled with gotcha fees and charges, such as $99.95 annual fees, $7.95 monthly fees (after the first year), ATM withdrawal fees, bill pay fees, loading fees -- and even charges for talking to a live operator at their service center and a card cancellation fee."

Ouch. Though it does seem the thing really does teach kids about what it's like to use a credit card.

In the letter posted by TMZ (and cc'd to mom Kris Jenner, which for some reason makes us smile),  Kardashian attorney Roach states, "The Kardashians have worked extremely long and hard to create a positive public persona that appeals to everyone, particularly young adults. They have been successful in doing so because they are recognized as honest, ethical and fun-loving individuals who are kind and caring to others.

"Unfortunately the negative spotlight turned on the Kardashians as a result of the Attorney General's comments and actions threatens everything for which they have worked."

Threatens everything for which they have worked? Um, OK. We certainly understand why they'd want out, but we also can't help but remember a little fun-loving kindness bestowed upon the likes of, you know, sex-tape partner Ray J?
