President_Chris_62580258_Max (1)

Kim Kardashian and her mom Kris Jenner are certainly in step -- and it so happens that now they're getting rewarded handsomely for it.

The mother-daughter duo announced their alignment with Skechers Shape-ups, shoes that promote fitness (especially in the celebrated Kardashian backside), Monday at the Beverly Wilshire hotel.

Sneaker honcho Leonard Armato announced that Kardashian and Jenner will soon be promoting a national mother-daughter fitness challenge, encouraging women and girls to get moving as a team.

Kim's sisters Kourtney and Khloe came to support their sister and mom. Thankfully they've got that handy Kardashian MasterCard, should anyone want to impulsively purchase the Kardashian sneaker.

Kim Kardashian turns 30 in Las Vegas with Khloe, Kourtney and friends

Kim Kardashian celebrates her 30th birthday Kim Kardashian said goodbye to 29 on Friday night in Sin City, surrounded by her mom, sisters and closest pals.

For her 30th birthday bash, Kardashian checked in with matriarch Kris Jenner and siblings Khloe and Kourtney to The Palazzo's Siena suite, where the girls primped and prepped for a night out at Tao Asian bistro.

Kelly Rowland, Lala Vazquez, Brittny Gastineau, rapper Trina and Mr. "Girls Gone Wild" Joe Francis joined the family for a dinner of sea bass and sushi, followed by a massive party at the adjoining nightclub. Hosted by video game Fallout: Vegas, the bash saw Kardashian in a body-hugging silver number by John Richmond -- with a pair of spiked Christian Louboutins she got for the occasion from Khloe and husband, Lamar Odom

Kim has mixed feelings about the milestone birthday, she told People: "It sounds so old ... it sounds so old. And then the other half of me is like, I feel so accomplished, and it's really no different than 29."

Jenner took the opportunity to remind Kim that she'd had four children by the age of 30, and if Kim happens "to find a husband and have 1,000 kids, I'd really be happy." 

Kardashian celebrated until 2 a.m. at Tao, where Rowland took the mic and serenaded her friend with her single "When Love Takes Over."

When jealous girlfriends attack: Kim Kardashian drenched

Khloe-and-kim-kardashian Yeesh, we thought Justin Bieber fans were the only people crazy jealous of Kim Kardashian. Guess not -- after a male fan asked to take a picture with Kim on Thursday night at a club in New York, the guy's girlfriend reportedly felt the need to hurl a drink at the reality TV star.

Kim was drenched, and chaos reportedly ensued.

Khloe Kardashian and Scott Disick, the father of Kourtney Kardashian's baby, jumped into the fray at the supper club Juliet, according to multiple reports, with Khloe reportedly diving across the floor to save her wedding ring after it was knocked off her hand, and Disick getting the woman off Kim. They left the shortly afterward, wet clothes and all, after security booted Disick from club.

Perhaps the girlfriend took it really seriously when Kim told Ryan Seacrest earlier this week that she was "down for some hookups" while her new show "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" tapes in the Big Apple.

We think, however, that unless girlfriend's boyfriend is a professional athlete, their relationship is probably safe.

Stay classy.

Celebs hit Fashion's Night Out in Los Angeles, New York [updated]

Fashions night out gucci For Friday's Fashion's Night Out, luxury brands and the style-savvy banded together for a second year to generate interest in shopping in the midst of a recession.

In Los Angeles, Josh Duhamel's main lady Fergie made an appearance at outdoor retail haven the Grove to sign autographs for fans purchasing her latest shoe collection. Over on Rodeo Drive, an embarrassment of high-end stores opened their doors for presentations.

Armani saw actor Samuel L. Jackson giving a retrospect on his red carpet looks through the years, moderated by television style guy Steven Cojocaru. Rodeo's Bebe flagship made the most of its Kardashian collection.

Our sister blog All the Rage spotted six Kim, Kourtney and Khloe lookalikes out front of the shop, in asymmetrical dresses and dramatic curls.  Over on Robertson Boulevard, Intermix boutique hosted a British Invasion bash with a performance from the band Deluka and saw attendees including Kelly Osbourne and Mena Suvari.

Skipping over to New York City, the Fifth Avenue Armani flagship gave a hefty incentive for folks to turn up and spend -- supermodel Bar Refaeli was on hand to pose for photos with shoppers. 

A little farther along on Fifth, Mary J. Blige toasted at the Gucci boutique with in-the-flesh Kardashians Kim and Kourtney, as well as rappers Fabolous and The-Dream

At Calvin Klein's Madison Avenue store, collection designers Francisco Costa and ...

Bethenny Frankel, Kourtney Kardashian hit Hamptons polo opener

Scott-disick-bethenny-frankel It wasn't all spandex and super heroes this weekend. While fanboys raged in San Diego, New York's social set were in Bridgehampton on Saturday for the opening day of the Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge.

At Blue Star Jets Field, new moms Bethenny Frankel and Kourtney Kardashian caught up with each other in the Swagg Mobile application lounge, where the reality stars gabbed with Kardashian's on-and-off beau Scott Disick.

Frankel wasn't the only "Real Housewives of New York" star in attendance; Jill Zarin roamed the VIP tents with her husband, Bobby, perusing goods at a Polo Ralph Lauren pop-up shop.

Out on the grounds, Kanye West's ex Amber Rose turned heads in a body-hugging pink mini. 

The Mercedes-Benz challenge benefits the South Fork Breast Cancer Coalition, and counts Coca-Cola and Crumbs bakery as partners, in addition to Susan Foster Jewelry, who hosted a swanky VIP brunch with Rolls-Royce on Sunday.

Kim Kardashian hosts sister Kourtney's 31st birthday in Las Vegas

Kim kardashain birthday2 Kourtney Kardashian got a little playtime in Las Vegas this weekend, as she celebrated turning 31 with sisters Kim and Khloe in tow. 

At MGM's Wet Republic on Saturday, the women partied with locals, sang "Happy Birthday to You" and lounged in their swanky Bombay Sapphire private cabana with raspberry Collins cocktails.

Kourtney recently graced the cover of Life & Style magazine, chatting about how she earned back her pre-baby body back after delivering Mason, now 4 months old.

She said she's limited her caffeine intake to a single shot of espresso per day and cut out sugars.

"I was eating a lot of dried fruit, and I didn't realize how much sugar that added. And now I'll eat raw almonds instead of salted ones," she told the mag.

Her exercise regime is cardio-heavy, with lots of running and squats to keep her booty "up there." 

"Frozen yogurt tastes so chemically to me because I've been eating salads and salmon and chicken," she said of her post-baby cravings.

Comments of the week: International conspiracy theory and Twitter quitter edition

Buju3Where was the action this week at the Ministry of Gossip? The winner when it comes to sheer volume of comments has to be Jamaican reggae singer Buju Banton, whose arrest on a cocaine-related charge elicited lots of outrage and opinions that the sting -- which the DEA says is backed by video and audio tapes -- is part of a gay conspiracy. 

The content of the comments is pretty voluminous too.

Back in Jamaica, fans maintained the Grammy nominee's innocence, even after hearing about video and audio tapes the DEA says it has. Comments have flooded in -- and keep coming -- on last Sunday's original Ministry post, but a follow-up post Monday with more details on the case has gone pretty much untouched.

(The Ministry has learned a lot of Jamaican patois this week, let me tell you. Buju's story also wins the MOST COMMENTS IN ALL CAPS prize. That one's not so coveted, by the way. WE CAN HEAR YOU in little letters too.)

And here's a question on many readers' minds this week: Why is the Ministry hating on Chris Brown? The answer is, we are not hating on Chris Brown...

It's a baby boy for Kourtney Kardashian and her boyfriend

Kardashians Kourtney Kardashian and boyfriend Scott Disick welcomed a baby boy early Monday morning in L.A., E! Online reports.

Mason Dash Disick weighed in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces, and was 19.5 inches long. That's Dash as in, the name of the family's boutique in "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and its spinoff "Kourtney & Khloé Take Miami!"

She and her on-again boyfriend knew back in October that a boy was on the way. Kourtney's official due date was Dec. 23 -- and if we may opine, the Ministry believes this little-bit-early-thing is cool for the kiddo.

There's nothing fun about a birthday that crashes into Christmas!

Smart move, little Mason.

And we apologize in advance for all those Happy-Merry Birthday-Christmas cards you're still bound to get. Our least fave: The ones where an adorable wittle kitty is playing with the shiny glass ornament. Not that we have any personal experience in this arena, but -- yuck!

Congrats all around.

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom: Stop us if this sounds familiar ...

Khloe.jpgFirst, she got a wedding ring, then he got a championship ring -- and now there are tattoos involved?

Reality TV diva Khloe Kardashian and L.A. Lakers forward Lamar Odom are certainly knocking down those milestones. The fact that he just put his Manhattan Beach bachelor pad/Lakers frat house on the market for around $2.4 million seems almost anticlimactic.

Check out the tattoo pics on Khloe's blog -- where we learned that the decision was spontaneous, she says: "When we were at dinner [Saturday night], I just knew I wanted a tattoo for Lamar in the web of my hand, and then once we got to the shop we decided on getting each other's initials."

For those keeping score: Khloe is the sister who just got married. Kourtney Kardashian is the sister who's going to have a baby. And Kim Kardashian is the one who wants to be married and have a baby and really, really soon, please.

And, yes, sports fans, especially the few who haven't watched the "E! True Hollywood Story," Olympic medalist Bruce Jenner joined this bunch of his own free will. Perhaps he can give fellow jock Lamar Odom a few tips on keeping up with the Kardashians?

Oh, yeah -- did we mention that Kim's off-again, on-again beau is New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush

I'm seeing trends. Lots of trends.
